It’s finally finals week, the end of a crazy semester and year. I don’t think any of us would have imagined 8 months ago we would all be such close friends today. The stories we can tell and inside jokes we know will not be forgotten. As much as we all may have anticipated this time of year, we dreaded it coming just as much because we are losing one of the nicest, smartest, sweetest and every other word like that, professors to ever come into our lives. Dr. Monecke will be so deeply missed by everyone within the geology department. We tried not to bring up this subject much because sadness sweeps over everyone. We all wish her the best of luck and a huge thank you for everything she’s done, it won’t be the same without her.
I hope we can keep posting our geologyness on here throughout the summer so we can say things like, thrust,hardness, cleavage, put it in your mouth, and of course, that’s the biggest I’ve ever seen, without being judged too much. With that, good luck to everyone this week, good luck to our seniors who are all grown up now and love always to the amazing Dr. Monecke.
