“Farewell Howard, You Were Good To Me”
By Terrence Cain
Indeed, it is true that all good things must come to an end. The grades are in, and I have passed all five of my classes with flying colors. Over the last two and half years I have learned so much and met some very interesting and nice people. I've learned a lot about myself and what I need to do to better myself and I feel like I truly accomplished something great. Over the last couple of years I have had some extremely low points and some exceptionally high ones. I'm very proud of my accomplishments and I'm very happy to be the first in my family to have a college degree. Come January I will be moving on to Angelo State University to get my bachelors degree in journalism.
I am very excited to be going to Angelo State in January because I'll be taking a film editing and media law class, plus a French language class split into two sections over my first semester there. I'll also be living on campus for the first time as well. I also plan to take action and get involved in writing for the Angelo State newspaper and working the radio station there if I have the time as well. I'm going to be extremely busy at Angelo State, that's for sure. I will miss Howard College, but I know that I have to move on so this is where I will conclude that my time has come to an end.
I wish to thank former sociology professor, Adrian Calvio, for encouraging me to come and write for Howard College. I also wish to thank my editor, Cindy Smith, for allowing me to write for the Howard College blog site here in Big Spring. I know I haven't always been the easiest to work with, but I know I've become a better person thanks to her. I also wish to thank professors like Amber Buske for pushing me so hard and encouraging me to keep moving forward all those times I wanted to just give up. It wasn't always easy to get my head wrapped around every subject I took, but I did my best and that's all I can say to anyone who wants to just give up. Keep working hard, keep trying even after you fail, and you'll eventually make it out on the other side a wiser person for the experiences you took upon yourself. If someone like me, who isn' all that intellectual when it comes to subjects like math, can pass it then so can you. This is my official sign-off as Howard College's blogging machine. May you all live long and prosper.
