I must say the one thing that St. Mark’s prepared me so well for was writing papers. I know I complained all through high school about research papers and what a hassle they were, but now I could not be more thankful for the plethora of experience it has given me. I learned how to write a formal paper with as much ease as riding a bike. It is now second nature to cite a source and to make sure that I have correct spelling and grammar. It boggles my mind the number of people I meet in college that never had to write a formal paper! My group project is making me want to hit my head against a wall! My group members are in simple words, incompetent. My grade rests in the hands of a person that uses contractions in a formal paper and does not know the proper “there”. So once again St. Mark’s, thank you. One research paper, every year, for four years was worth the agony.

"Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark."
