It has taken me some time to reflect on the end of the year and to wind down. New Play went well, and although I struggled in a lot of ways I think that I learned a lot. I can't wait to see how awesome it will be next year with Aubrey at the helm. Finals were manageable and and grading is complete and submitted!
I think that the most valuable lesson I learned (and am still learning) is that I can only control me and just because the way that I would do things works doesn't mean that it is the only way. I feel like I really let myself down this year but there was never a shortage of friends to help lift me back to my feet and tell me to keep going.
I am desperately sad to see Sam and Nathan leave (but so glad I got to know them and see them graduate) but I am also excited to have Adam and Mariana joining the office in the fall.
My brother's wife is pregnant and I am so excited to meet this nibling and be an Aunt (closer to Christmas or New Year).
I am headed to Charlottesville Opera for the summer to work on Oklahoma!
See you in August!
