The S in All Star Stand for SSP | Anushay A.

Somebody once told me that BLAST is gonna roll me,
That SSP ain’t easy at all,
Full of Leagues of Legend lore, nightmares in shape of MOE,

And TAs that are seven feet tall,

Dr. One keeps telling me I am correct, 

It’s been a while since I have slept, 

My teammates (shoutout Mika and Yanna) are absolute gems, 

It’s been a couple days and we’re already friends.

Well the lectures start coming and they don’t stop coming,
First week in, the lack of sleep is numbing,
Professor Park makes us have a lot of fun,
We bond a lot, get even more done
So much to do, so much to see,
There’s nothing wrong with a little mischief.
You’ll never know if you don’t go,
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow

It’s a cool place and the second week is in,
Turns out a lot of people’s hobby is “twin”

Dr. Emlen likes insects and the art of war,

Professor Conway likes colour more,
The research is deep but we are getting there, 

This means a little fun is fair,

The late TA block has something up their sleeves,
With this much chaos, I hope the TAs don’t leave. 

So Ananya asked if I could be her wedded wife,
And Ryan gave us the performance of his life,
Maybe its best Colin doesn’t floss, 

We are all Laney, the NBA boss.

But the quizzes and the lectures keep on coming, 

Almost third week, the time keeps running, 

It’s been one of the best months of my life, 

Friendship, research and I also got a wife, 

So much to do, so much to see, 

I am glad I got into SSP, 

Molly, Kyle, Colin and Laney are pretty cool,
and Dr. Hall, Dr. Das and the rest of SSP Purdue,

Hey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get a lot of research work done because it is extremely important to meet the deadlines or else you WILL get overloaded by work- 

*coughs* 


And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars (and sometimes accidents in the lab) break the mold.
