Detox Tea Talk: March 2019

I cannot believe we are already in the middle of March. When you read this, I will be about to head right on into finals week, though oddly enough, I’m not feeling the stress that I felt last quarter. I think it has to do with having felt a sense of peace all throughout the last ten weeks, which is something I did not have last quarter. That being said, I am definitely still feeling pressure to end this quarter strong, which has been hard ever since the end of the Festival of Shorts. I have a strong case of the post-show blues, and gaining enough motivation to open a History or Sociology textbook has certainly not been easy.

The Festival of Shorts ended a week ago tomorrow, which means my time as Dorie also came to an end. For whatever reason, no matter how much I prepare for the end of a show, it’s still so heartbreaking when it ends. I’d like to say I let myself sit with the bittersweetness, but in reality I was simply too busy to let myself focus on the end. I had so much family come see the show, which was lovely, but it definitely made for a lack of reflection time. So, I carried the bittersweetness with me all of last week, and I’m only now trying to leave it behind.

Over the course of this quarter, quite a lot has changed. My major is now Global Communications with an emphasis in Spanish, along with my double minor in Drama and Psychology. I’ll tell the whole story of the switch soon, but for now let’s just say that God has a funny way of getting things figured out when they are supposed to be figured out, and not a moment sooner.

This has been a bit of a hodgepodge post, but much of what I still want to say deserves it’s own post. I sense a lot of change coming up in the next few months, and I have a feeling those changes will make their way into what this blog looks and feels like. Please accept this post as my check in for the month, and I’ll be back soon <3
