Summertime is a favorite season for so many, but with college over, it takes on an entirely different meaning to me and many others in my same position. Now it means 18 years of education is over. Hot days are spent trapped inside a cubicle glued to a computer screen instead of basking in the sun. Long summer nights are no longer an option now that I am up at 6, and moving back to Bellingham in September is not on my calendar anymore.
Nothing will ever compare to these past four years. My only regret is that I never really enjoyed Bellingham and all it has to offer until my last year. My hope is that these stories will inspire you to enjoy Bellingham and your time here a little more than I did.
This issue will challenge you to look at Bellingham in a different way. Explore the Puget Sound alongside Tanya, go kite flying with Megan in the park, hop aboard Mora with Isaac and laugh as Bradley shares a few of the lessons professors can never teach.
Take your copy and drive along State Street, turn right at Boulevard Park, lie out on the grass and read the stories. I read so many stories over the quarter at that park and I hope you enjoy it as well.
After reading, my challenge to you is this: go try something new. Remember, college doesn’t last forever, summers will soon just be a memory and your time in Bellingham is not long. Enjoy the stories and enjoy the rest of summer!
