By Darien Kulchytsky ‘21
It’s pretty scary to know how quickly time flies. I remember it as just yesterday when
I took my last final on May 23, but looking back now, I realize it has been 4 months. For me, summer consisted of a blur of exciting activities, which included canoeing on Lake George, camping on Raystown Lake, and learning to become a camp counselor. Looking back on those memories, I am reminded of a quote from Dr. Seuss: “Do not cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” Though I will miss the sum- mer, I will cherish the memories gained and look forward to the future.
Now I know summer passed too quickly for all of us, but I, for one, am excited for the year ahead. Let me introduce myself. My name is Darien Kulchytsky, and I am a junior at Saint Ignatius. This year, I am the Editor-in-Chief of our newspaper, The Eye. I originally began working for The Eye as a sophomore, editing articles as well as writ- ing them. I also created the puzzles on the Back Page last year, such as the Freshman Teachers Crossword, Christmas Quotes Jumble, and the Scavenger Hunt. Other than The Eye, my extracurricular activities include WildFlats, Harlequins, Ukrainian folk dancing and Ukrainian Scouts.
Now that you’ve gotten to know me, I want everyone to know that helping spread the news around campus is a very important job to me. I will take it upon myself, along with my co-editor, to get issues out in a timely fashion with enjoyable content. As Yoda said, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” I promise you that I will do my job to the best of my ability, and will make sure that this year will be, as Borat would say, a “great success!”
