Hey everyone, I’m Ceci and I was your stripper this year. Since receiving this skirt, I’ve kept it by my bedside every night, and it’s served as a reminder of my friends and home. I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to lead rocky this session. I would like to thank all of you who participated, and also SRA Cayla for helping me with all of the planning as activity coordination. It wouldn’t have been possible without her. I hope everyone enjoyed the performance this year, and if you didn’t, I’m sure you will next year. I’m so happy to announce your 20.1 stripper, Julia.
So. Here goes... I’ve been going to CTY for 5 years now and honestly it’s hard to imagine a summer without it. I first came to Lancaster in 16.2, and I was incredibly squirrelly, I remember sitting in the corner at dances and playing Minecraft pocket edition. I was somewhat interested in tradition, but I wasn’t sure where to start or who to ask. I went to 17.2 and it kinda passed me by. After that summer, I decided to double session, and I came to 18.1 confused and knowing nobody. Somehow, I found my self in the center of tradition. I made friends with those who upheld it, and was encouraged to participate in everything. And I had fun. I enjoyed feeling like I was a part of something bigger than just me. But honestly, I’m kind of ok with leaving it behind. I know that the people we’ve chosen will do great and I’m sure that the onemores will carry on tradition. I know that I’m still gonna be able to see most of my friends. And maybe even for longer, unsupervised periods of time. But even so, it’s hard to leave. It hasn’t quite hit me yet that I’m not coming back, maybe it’s cause I have another session, maybe I’m just a master procrastinator, honestly, I don’t know. The only thing I really know right now is that I love all of you. Thank you to everyone who has made my time here the best it could be. Thank you to Sam, for being the best friend I could ask for, to Nathan, for adopting me, even if it was really late, to Lindsey, the love of my life (especially in the presence of fuckboys) to Bella, for dealing with my constant need for affection every break, and so many more friends that I don’t have enough time to mention. I’d like to end my speech with some advice for specific groups .To the squirrels and anyone curious about tradition- ASK! Most CTYers will go on and on explaining everything to you, maybe even to an extreme. To the future position holders, don’t waste your session focusing solely on your responsibility, I mean, still do your job, but allow yourself to have fun and enjoy your nomore year. And get sleep (@naiman). Basically, let yourself get involved in some of the weird traditions, but don’t let them define your session. I guess I’m pretty much done here so, I like you, I love you, I CTY you. I love CTY and I love the Passionfruit. *big sip of big boi water*
(Please excuse this I finished it at 5:30 the morning of passionfruit)
Hey everyone, I’m Ceci and I’m your passionfruit empress this year. So before we start, we need to pour out some skl for those who can’t be here. Uhh, I think that’s all I have to do so I’m gonna go ahead with my speech.
So I’ve been going to CTY for the past five years and Lancaster for the past four. I don’t remember much from my first two years. I talked to my hallmates, and maybe a few friends from previous years, but I was scared to immerse myself in tradition. I got interested in raving pretty early, but aside from that, I was not involved in any way. In 18.2, after thoroughly enjoying myself at 18.1, I began to involve myself a little more but I spent most of my nights on FaceTime with session one friends. 19.1 passed, and I had a damn good time. I was in class with my best friend, and I was able to be unapologetically myself. I felt as if I belonged there, and that I couldn’t feel this way anywhere else. Then 19.2 came around and I was scared. Almost of my friends from previous years weren’t coming back, and I wondered if I even wanted to participate in nomore activities. After all, I’d already had a nomore session. During intersession, I contemplated if I wanted to stay inside and talk to the friends I knew and loved, but after a solid 5 hour crying session, I thought to myself, and realized I would hate to spend my last session wishing I were somewhere else. Opening day came around and a few more familiar faces appeared. I began to feel like a belonged again, which I was honestly surprised about. Most double sessioners that I’d talked to seemed to strongly prefer first, and last year I was one of them too. But as I let myself live in the moment, and just enjoy these three weeks with friends, I honestly had an amazing time. I’ve made so many new friends this year, you all mean so much to me. I’ve gotten involved and felt like I belonged in the community. Whether we’re tumbling across human rollers, sneaking down to the laundry room at 4 am to hide frogs everywhere, or just grass *corgiing* during canon, each of you have meant so much to me in some way or another, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my last session with anyone else. Basically, I like you, I love you, I cty you, I love cty, and I love the passionfruit.
