Those long time forgotten aunts and uncles, and other family members, sitting in the far dusty corners of my memory always gave me one piece of advice. They said that once I hit varsity the years would go by like Sebastian Loeb in the straights of Spain. Of course I thought they were slightly mad and did not know they were talking about–until now. Not sure if you have taken note but we have about five weeks from the first year of varsity finishing.

It was like yesterday I was entering Matric. Some of my best memories were to come from that year but before I knew it I was on my way down to good, old Grahamstown to enter a completely different environment. I would encounter O-week (especially), studying, friends and the student life that Rodents live.

Well, I can honestly say it has been the best year of my life. Moving out of home gaining independence and studying something I enjoy was all packed into a package titled Rhodes. I have no regrets from the year but I think I am going to miss this year because things just get tougher from here.

But there is some consolation. The December holidays will probably be one of the most memorable with the new friends I have made and the new life experiences I have learnt. Oh ya, my bike is also sitting patiently waiting for me to reunite with her. ;)

Ok enough with the emotions we still got to get through this week, so I salute you all in the effort and work that has gone into this ledgendary year. Lets make next year the same.

Good luck for the rest of the week, going to be a challenge to get through everything. ;)
