As the Alaskans say, “Ukudigada.”
As the Australians say, “Hooroo.”
As the Danish say, “Farvel, Hej.”
As the Germans say, “Auf Wiedersehen.”
As the Italians say, “Arrivederci.”
As the Hawaiians say, “Aloha.” (It’s hello and goodbye, remember?)
In any case, I’ve truly loved this gateway semester in the Minor with all of you. I know our Tuesdays and Thursdays won’t be the same – we won’t hear Shelley tell us our drafts are due in class on Monday when we don’t have class on Monday, we won’t be able to compete so fiercely for quickfire points, and we won’t see each other’s exhausted faces to reassure ourselves that we’re not the only one struggling through the week.
Above all else, cheers to Shelley for picking us up week after week. And I’ll just say I’ll see you soon, all.
Oh, and those things we are calling ePortfolios…cheers to those too.
