THESISCRAZY2018 (Part 14): Goodbye for Now

A picture of Lila counting cells (her “favorite activity”)

 

Dear Friends,

It has been a wild ride. Reading through all these THESISCRAZY2018 interviews has been a privilege, and I can’t wait to see what next year’s class brings. But today we have reached the end of our time together. Part 14 is the last part of thesiscrazy this year. I am sad. You are sad. But today at 4pm, the seniors are gonna stand on the Olin steps and they’re gonna pop their bottles of champagne, have a drink or two (or ten) with friends, and celebrate their momentous achievement of writing a thesis. But let’s not forget they’re probably a little sad too, and they don’t quite know why. It’s gonna nag them a little, and they’ll be left wondering. And then next week (not tomorrow or this weekend ’cause they’ll be celebrating), they’ll realize. Their thesis, this thing that was on their mind 22/7 for the last year, is finished. Their baby is gone.

We’ve got some great ones by Ali Arminio ’18, Khephren Spigner ‘18, Caroline Deimer ‘18Lila Levinson ‘18, Jackson Barnett ‘18, Grace Wong ‘18, Allegra Ayida ‘18, Emily Kessler ‘18, and Amélie Clémot ‘18. Don’t skimp on these theses.

Read after the jump to catch up on this final installment of THESISCRAZY2018. And if you really need something for some ultra-last-minute procrastination, check out all of this year’s interviews here! We’ll see you on the steps at 4!
