Dear School Year,

There is no easy way to say this. We both knew the time to say goodbye was going to come, we just didn’t know it was going to come so soon.

It only seems like yesterday that I was showing you my summer reading assignment from my last relationship, which you kindly told me didn’t matter to you. It is hard to believe that 10 months has passed since we hung out at Mountain Workshop, danced at the

Monster Mash and trick or treated together.

Our long walks to the bus stop, with the sunrise in the background, will always be a fond memory that I carry with me. I would even sit through hours of traffic just to get to you.

While you sometimes made me do things that I didn’t enjoy, such as reading, writing and homework, I did them anyway because I knew that you always had my best interest at heart.

We laughed, we learned, we grew as people together. You taught me so much about myself and about the world around me. Thanks to you, I see the world in a different way. Penny Wars made me realize that it’s fun to stick up for a cause that I believe in (You are so cute when you get passionate about a topic and when you dressed in all those colors). Mock Trial made me realize how checks and balances work in the American government.

You taught me about the Holocaust and about genocides that are still happening today. You taught me that one person can make a difference, and that everyone has a voice. Through Science Showcase, you taught me that there is always a logical way to approach any problem.

You stuck with me through thick and thin. Some of our fights were, well, epic. And I have to admit, you were talked about at the lunch table, #sorrynotsorry. While we might have needed some couples therapy during math midterms, nothing will ever be as fun as our trip to New York together. I will always miss dancing with you on the boat.

Saying goodbye hurts, but you made me a stronger person. Thanks to you, I know I can handle anything that comes my way in new relationships down the road.

While we will both move on eventually, you to new students and me to new schools, know that I will always carry with me the lessons you have taught me.

I will always miss you, but it is time to move on.

Forever Yours,
Rachel Suggs
