Today is the last day of my PSY class. Well , technically, tomorrow is and I have to say, I've learned alot about myself through the class work, through my professor but most of all through my fellow classmates. As my way of saying thanks for being so, well, so cool as a class and as individuals, I'd like to offer some parting words as this is what the OLDEST person in the class does. :) I won't use your full name, just the first initial of your first name, for privacy reasons. I'll even remove it later if you want me too, and yes, you can check to see if I have.
C - I thought you brought a refreshing air to the class each and every time you walked through the door with an upbeat attitude and a general good feeling that I thought flowed throughout the room.
S - We had our moments, but believe me, it wasn't you, it was me. I apologize. Part of me envies you because it seems almost effortless for you to touch people and in turn allow them to touch you. I'm going to to work on that part of me.
P - I enjoyed your direct approach to many of our topics and I appreciated your full out honesty. I also enjoyed the brief time we spoke with each other out of class on the way to our cars.
A - I've enjoy your company and look forward to building a friendship. I thought you were awfully brave to share the thoughts you shared with the class. It takes a strong person to do that.
J - I think some of our points of view are very much alike and I had to agree with you when you said that people down here took you the wrong way. It is a culture shock to come from the north and a major city to this area and I appreciate you sharing how that felt.
N - Even though you are quiet, it's clear to me that when you say something it is well thought out before you speak and I think that's an excellent quality to have. I enjoyed getting to know you.
A - I'm sure I could go on and on. I enjoyed sitting next to you and the fresh optimism that you brought into class with you. Your carefree attitude and honesty were refreshing to see and I have no doubt that you will obtain your goals.
S - I really enjoyed getting to know you and your stories about the "car and the stupid dog", made me laugh. I'm sure you will do very well with whatever career that you choose, simply because you have heart.
D - I think you're pretty cool. An honest, open and tell it like it is guy. That's very respectful.
K - You don't say alot but when you do, I think it's insightful and funny. I thought your presentation with the pictures of your family was very cool and I think it's even cooler(is that a word?) that you seem to have a very close relationship with your family. Thanks for not passing your mom around :)
Dr. G. - I enjoyed taking this class and I'm glad that I did. I learned alot about myself as well as how to look at issues in a new way. I thank you for your time and I appreciate how this class has helped me.
And that's how I think of each of you. There is more but there's no room for it here. Thanks for being cool and supportive to everyone. Happy Holidays.
