What have I done in twenty sixteen?
I had the uneventful birthday of nineteen.
I didn’t believe what the upperclassmen were trying to sell
Three months later I learned they were right, Ochem is hell.
While I was binge watching shows I might have looked lazy
But 20 credit hours, a job, and 2 clubs show I’m actually just crazy.
Unlike most around me I did not call it a sin
When the more corrupt candidate didn’t win.
I spent many a weekend cursing my luck
Because while my friends were at the range I was in dishroom cleaning up muck.
I signed a lease with my three best friends
And spent many nights wondering if that friendship was at an end.
I played referee in all the fights
And prayed we would all come out all right.
Now here we are and all seems fairly well.
Hopefully next year I have a better story to tell.
