Senior Send-off: My time at Brown, in GIF form

I’ve been webmaster for BlogDailyHerald since midway through my freshman year. In all that time I’ve written a grand total of zero posts, preferring instead to focus on behind the scenes technology work. Now, as a soon-to-graduate senior, I’m lucky enough to have a kick-ass successor who has taken on all of my Blog related responsibilities and somehow still finds time to write fantastic posts. But through a combination of peer pressure and procrastination I’ve been given one last job to do: write my first and only post for Blog.

In keeping with my love of the Internet and all things technological, I’m going to leave the eloquent, well-written posts for the other seniors to write. This post chronicles my time at Brown in the best way I know how: with animated GIFs and photos of cats.

Bonus

For anyone nervous about his/her future, or anyone who’s a fan of Dr Seuss, here’s the classic “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” with a twist. I’m a huge fan of the book and of this video in particular. Let it remind you that, no matter what worries you may have, you will succeed (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed).
