Dear 100 Hour Board,
I think the unofficial should be made the official. Is it time The Lone Musketeer to retire?
Dear my lovely pseudonym (who has a grammatical error in her question, my goodness!),
At the prompting of Ardilla, it is time for me to make a decision. It has been over a year since I last posted on the Board and I am not proud of ghosting it. The anxiety of keeping up with my online presence has kept me in the shadows. Even LinkedIn is a bit terrifying, heaven forbid Facebook. But this is not the place to air (too much) dirty laundry. I just started PA school and have to accept the fact that my free time is now gone. And that includes the chance of me coming back to the Board.
Before I go, I want to write a few thank you notes:
Harold B. Lee Library, thank you for not explicitly banning employees from surfing the Board during work hours in 2016. It developed in me the dream to attain the non-existent fame associated with being a Board writer.
Ardilla, thank you for blatantly writing answers to the Board while I was studying in the Chem lab. Without meeting you, I would've never worked up the courage to apply.
Fellow writers, I have been impressed with each one of you. Not only your skills as researchers and writers but as deep and upstanding human beings. It's been an honor to be among your ranks.
And finally: Readers, thank you for supporting this strange group of people. I like to think it's worth your time and energy.
A final cheers,
The Lone Musketeer
BUT WAIT, YOU CAN'T GET RID OF ME THAT QUICKLY! Alumni Week is nigh...
