Felicia Vulcu reports – continued
I’ve included a table of all the books Shari read each
year, from 2012 until present:
Year Number of books
2016 91 so far
I did some math and, not including 2016, this comes
out to 165 books per year (+/- 16 books). That’s right.
This is not a typo. Shari reads 165 books per year. Let’s
look at this from my perspective, we’re in July and I’m
on book three.
Not to say that we’re slouches. I guess it does
come back to the cog in the machine analogy.
You see, the four of us all have our strengths and
our weaknesses. What makes our work bubble so
amazing is that we have found a way to complement
one another. I like clipart, so here’s my clipart of
how this works. Here we are, all four of us, holding
up the BBS undergraduate program. It might sound
a bit pretentious but it’s not. We really are the core
BBS undergraduate program: and it’s hard work.
Rewarding, but hard work.
And now we must say goodbye to Meagan.
She’s moving on to a wonderful new chapter and
so this is good news. Very good news. But it also
marks the close of our chapter. A chapter filled with
wonderful memories, hard work, laughter, tears
and yes even zombies and unicorns. This chapter
is written and safely tucked away in one of Shari’s
wonderful books and now we must move forward
to begin another chapter. Who will it be this time?
We already have the zombie, the mad woman on the
unicorn and the book worm. Who will complete our
And so, here we are. At the end of this silly little
story. Meagan, we’re going to miss you. A lot. A
real lot. We wish you all the luck and happiness
in the world and hope you discover amazing new
adventures in your new world with Chris and Harper
at NASA. And maybe, just maybe, once in a while you
remember those of us here in the BBS undergraduate
department, because you are always welcome back to
share a nice glass of wine with us, blow some bubbles
on the campus lawn and relive all the wonderful
times we’ve shared together. Good luck Meagan.
We shall miss you so.
From the heart,
Meagan is the instructional
assistant of our undergraduate
program, but to me she is so much
more. Meagan has my back. In
everything I do. I don’t know if
this makes sense to everyone.
I struggled a LOT trying to find
the words, but they have failed me once again.
Meagan keeps all of us moving forward. She does
this through her sheer tenacity and brilliance at
her work. Meagan keeps us in check, edits our
work and thinks “outside all boxes.”
