In the tradition of outgoing Editors-in-Chief of the Martlet, here’s a goodbye to Volume 71 and my time at the Martlet. And, in a proper tribute, it’s in the form of an Ariana Grande song.

 

Thought I’d end up insane

Cause the Martlet and UVic aren’t a match

Wrote some pieces about the UVSS

Now I read them and laugh

Even almost had a breakdown

And for the patient Martlet staffers, I’m so thankful

Wish I could say, “Thank you” to the past EiCs

‘Cause they were all angels

 

The Martlet taught me love

UVic taught me patience

The UVSS taught me pain

Now, I’m so amazing

I’ve laughed and I’ve cried

But that’s not what I see

So, look what I got

Look what it’s taught me

And for that, I say

 

Thank you, next (X3)

I’m so f***in’ grateful for my paycheque

Thank you, next (X3)

 

Spend more time not stressin’ ’bout student politics

I ain’t worried ’bout nothin’

Plus, I’m working for someone else

We havin’ more productive environmental discussions

I know they say I move on too fast

But this one gon’ last

‘Cause I’m gonna get paid more

And I’m so good with that

 

The Martlet taught me love

UVic taught me patience

How I’ve handled pain

No more complainin’

I’ve laughed and I’ve cried

But that’s not what I see

‘Cause look at Martlet Volume 71

It’s been so fun

And for that, I say

 

Thank you, next (X3)

I’m so f***in’ grateful for my paycheque

Thank you, next (X3)

I’m so f***in’ grateful for my paycheque

Thank you, next (X3)

 

One day I’ll look back at the archives

Laugh at my staunch use of the Oxford comma

I’ll be thankful for the experience

‘Cause I grew from the drama

Could only ever do it once, already done undergrad

But that shit was a blast

God forbid I’d ever have to return

Least this volume is a smash

 

I’ve got so much love

Got so much patience

I’ve learned from the pain

No more complainin’

I’ve laughed and I’ve cried

But that’s not what I see

‘Cause look at Martlet Volume 71

It’s been so fun

And for that, I’ll say

 

Thank you, next (X3)

I’m so f***in’ grateful for my paycheque

Thank you, next (X3)

I’m so f***in’ grateful for my paycheque

Thank you, next (X3)

Yeah, byee
