"I can't wait to get back"
Every time I pass someone in the hall and every time I talk to someone who I don't normally speak to; the same words come out of their mouth "I can't wait to get back." It isn't that I'm hearing some variation of this; I'm actually hearing those same exact words. I thought by this time, we’d hear of people who aren’t coming back. In my inner circle, it just isn’t happening. I’d say 1 out of every 40 people I know isn’t coming back. This is exciting news. I sat down last night to write out a list of who I thought definitely wouldn’t return and possibly wouldn’t return. My original guesstimate was that 10% of the student body won’t come back, but it seems I was way off. It seems, at least to me, that it’s more like 3-5%. Now, did I conduct a scientific test? No. Did I try calling the kids of the people who love to bash Tulane? Nope. I looked at a group of freshmen (yes I know a bunch), sophomores, juniors and seniors- and analyzed that. I definitely know 3 people who aren’t coming back. And I think I know about 23 who might not. So that’s 26 out of about 300. How can I remember 300 people I know? The facebook and those wonderful emails I’ve received. ALMOST ALL OF 23 people who aren’t sure whether they are going to go back are saying it because their “parents won’t let them.” That, however, makes me quite sad.
Regardless of whether you buy my argument, I’m real excited about it. Many of you will be going to see
