Thank You

This is my last night in Ann Arbor, and I just wanted to thank everyone that has gotten to know me and who I've met these past four years. All of my friend are amazing, and your friendships are something that I will never take for granted and has helped me get through even the most difficult times. There isn't much I can't do with the friends I've made and I realize that wherever we go and whatever we do, we'll always be able to pick up right where we left off. I can't begin to express how much the UofM has changed my life in the best possible ways.

Anyways, it's very late, and I have to wake up in just under 4 hours, so I should probably be in bed, but thank you to everyone who has been supportive of my decisions and been there for me. I originally planned on thanking everyone individually, but I realize that this blog post would be incredibly long. So special thanks to:
Dr. Kat Brown
Dr. Jason Yaeger
Dr. Eric Nielsen and Sungjin Park
Dr. Matthew Hull
UofM Fencing Club - Best club ever and easily one of the best decisions I ever made was to join this club, it's led to great friendships and amazing memories. Keep up the good work.
HSSP people (extra special thanks to 5th Kleinsdale, there will never be a hall like ours, freshman year was phenomenal, and regardless of what JFB says, it's always getting better, 909 was just an example of the awesomeness in the future) "To good times and no bad memories!"
Of course, my family is to thank for all the support they've shown me in all my decisions, I feel very lucky and could not ask for anything for from anybody.
Stay Saiph everyone.

With love and service for the maize and blue, see you in two years,
Go Blue!
