This being my last holiday season at Kenyon, I wanted to reflect on how I’ve grown during each of those Decembers past and present.
Posted in December 2016
Junior year has freed me. Taught me to do what I wanted. How to be alone and find meaning in that. How to try new things and enjoy them. Maybe I did eat alone in the dining hall a few times, but I enjoyed my solitude as much as I enjoyed all the new things I tried this year. Junior year is my time to embrace all Kenyon has to offer, and, in the process, embrace myself.
It’s always nice to have closure, be it with a person or with a class, and finals week has always seemed like a suitable goodbye for the semester.
Whatever your work may be, I hope you find the time and space to do it. I hope you create.
What — dancing backwards in heels in front of a whole lot of people in Rosse Hall wasn’t on your Kenyon bucket list? Well, it’s been on mine.
