The truth behind my senior speech...

i talked with semmelbeck last night/this morning and i just felt it nessacary to explain myself...

I haven't even seen the video yet so i really hope it makes sense. I tried filming numerous occasions and just could never quite make it through. I wanted to say more, i wanted to go through every experience and in words make sure i could flly thank al of you. I couldn't make it. i wanted to spread my word of wisdom and let you know how i feel. i couldn't do it. i wanted to be sure you felt how encouraged and challenged i've been by all of you. i couldn't express it.

Thank you all SO much. i will and do miss you but things will be fine. To the class of 05, thanks (i can't say it enough) i hope to see yo uall again son. Austin, be careful in the air force ok. andra, i'm glad you are recovering. neema, pursue your dreams at ou. and so many more.

to the class of 06, also thanks and remember. "change is inevitable, expect the unexpected." Congradulations on surviving a year of our pranks, jokes, and sarcasim. Now it's your turn. Keep the fire burning and the ideas and the problems you see of us in your head...don't lose them. Don't brush stuff off, if you see something you want to change then don't be afraid to. Jump to the occassion. Rise like yeast in the oven. (i know, pathetic but it's all i got) just don't be sad. all of us will still be a phone call or e-mail away.

Specifically to Jordy and Nurge........i cannot express how you two seniorites have helped me grow. thank you, dank u wel, mucho gracias. languages cannot express what i wish to say.
