By Maria Sosso, English Major / Gumberg Library Intern
I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this post. I have just finished up the last of my undergraduate classes as of this evening. Today was bittersweet. Saying goodbye to the safety of my little bubble was tough (especially my classes within the English department). I am going to miss seeing my friends every day (even though it’s been through little zoom rectangles). I am so grateful to the English department for providing me with a solid foundation. I have come so far in the past four years as a learner, and most especially as a writer. I think that regardless of what may come of the many internships I’ve applied to throughout the semester, I definitely can have some pride in the fact that I’m a lot better off than when I started as a timid freshman. The fact that I’ve found my voice fills me with some comfort as I move on. I am also thankful for the experiences I’ve had this year with both of my internships. This spring semester has had me fighting burnout at every turn, but I was always happy about the prospect of doing work for my internship (not just saying that!) Mr. Ted Bergfelt is honestly the glue that holds the library together and I’m in awe of the scope of his responsibilities. He was always there to provide me with guidance and a helping hand if I needed it. We covered a lot of ground this semester! Speaking of, make sure to check out the new and improved Science Fiction LibGuide. I am so excited for graduation and I can’t wait to see what the summer has in store. I’m fully vaccinated and I’m unstoppable. Congratulations Class of 2021!!! Go Dukes!!!
