To the first years of 2012 – you’ve got it. You know who you are as students, and you know how to play those roles in ways that work for you. Next year is going to be sweet.
To the first years of 2013 – welcome. You’re about to become part of something amazing. You’ve got a lot to learn, but by this time next year you’ll be fine. Brace yourself for a wild ride.
To all students – I hope you have an awesome Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Kick back, enjoy the festivities and, if you choose to read at all over the summer, make sure that it’s something with no literary acclaim whatsoever.
All the very best,
