Which is good, in a way, because the reality of parting ways with graduating seniors is starting to kick in—I'm going to miss them more than it would be entirely appropriate to admit in public/cyberspace.
I know there's some feel-good wisdom out there about how farewells are necessary before you can meet again, but my current sentiment is captured by the following Charles Schulz quote:
"Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes."
But just to make myself feel a little better:
"No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth." - Robert Southey
