I’m writing this post from behind stage right before my play, the one I’ve been producing; it's going up for the second and last time. Yesterday was opening night (we’re having a short run) and everything went great! It was a huge load off my mind and oh so satisfying to see months of work finally pay off. Everything I’ve done culminated into a wonderful show with the help of my fantastic cast and crew.
As I’m finalizing my papers and studying for my upcoming tests (on Monday and Tuesday), I can’t help but feel some similar satisfaction. Sure, I have exams when I get back from Christmas break, but these are the last assignments of the semester so I feel like all the studying and work I’ve done over the semester is about to pay off.
I’m afraid that I don’t have a very long post for today… I have to go round up my actors for our last set of warm-ups. I just wanted to share a little bit of my contentment; it’s been a busy semester and now the end is just within sight. That’s not to say that I’m glad it’s over in that I haven’t enjoyed this semester, but I’m going to be glad, even during the last few weeks of the semester when I just have lectures and now assignments, to take a break from all the crazy things that have taken up a lot of my time, drink a cup of tea, and just read and regenerate.
