goodbyes and thanks
I'm finding it hard to come up with a way to round things out this semester, to come to any kind of closure with this class. I'm not sure if I managed to convey this, but I'm enormously proud of all of you, of what you accomplished this semester, and of the bravery with which you took it on. I know this was uncharted territory for the majority of you, and I know you must all have had moments (perhaps still today!) of wondering what the heck you'd gotten yourselves into. And I know that there were a lot of times (perhaps still today!) when you'd have liked more input from me, more of a reassuring sense that we had a clear destination, that I knew how to get there, and that you were all well on track.
I'll keep this short and sweet:
Spanks for the memories, the posts, the blogging, the wiki-ing! Thanks for making my almost-last English class at this college an experience that was so different (in a good way) from any others that I've taken. I will miss blogging here and I'm glad that you all made this class and blog worthwhile for me. =)
