My journey began five years ago,
Excited, nervous, and feeling all alone.
Now the time has flown right by;
Ypsi is my second home.
In April, I’ll graduate for the second time,
This time with a Master’s degree.
But, Thanksgiving’s around the corner,
Time to say “thanks” to who means the most to me.
Thank you to my family
For supporting me so far away.
I love you all dearly
And think about you every single day.
Thank you to my closest friends,
Time and distance may set us apart.
I miss our late nights, stupid fights,
And the best heart-to-hearts.
Thank you to my sisters,
For accepting me for me.
I wear my badge with honor;
Delta Zeta now and always, my sorority.
Thank you to the student org advisers,
I know I was quite the challenge.
I’ve lived, learned, maybe crashed and burned,
But now you know there’s nothing you can’t manage!
Thank you to my professors,
You taught me to think, critique, and analyze.
But more importantly, treated me as a person,
I’m not just a number in your eyes.
Thank you to my colleagues,
For teaching me to relax.
Life’s too short to worry –
Just enjoy and try to laugh.
Thank you to my supervisors,
There have been quite a few.
With confidence and trust, you’ve let me lead
And unlocked strengths I never knew.
Thank you to the CTGs,
You’re the best – hands down, no competition.
Every day is something different,
But you’re always an inspiration.
Thank you to you EMU,
Home of the green and white.
The people, love, and memories have shaped my past,
And left my future twice as bright.
