Happy Holidays by Erick P. '17

And some final thoughts before the new year


To think

That one year ago,

MIT said “Yes, you can go.”

My family rejoiced, my friends cheered.

Looking back, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year.

Finals are over. First semester is done. Now it’s time for relaxing fun.

With the family and friends back home. I’m getting to see how much everyone has grown.


Reflecting back,

I see that I too have grown.

Here are a few things I learned on my own:

Laundry is very important. Neglect it you should not.

The workload can be overwhelming, but give it all you got.

Everyone’s afraid of failing. In each of our classes, there’s so much to learn.

But I found no use complaining, I just kept on working and got the grades that I earned.

Whew! That was crazy.

Time for holiday cheer.

But no time to get lazy.

2nd semester is near.

Go have a nice holiday.

And see you next year!
