Hi. My name is Sara and I don’t like to talk about feelings. But this post has been saved in various levels of personal disclosure as a draft for a few weeks now so I think it should see the light of day.
I don’t think it is any secret that the past four months have been pretty tough. Tough is actually an epic understatement but I’m not feeling particularly witty or eloquent right now. GMCA has turned out to be a great experience so far, but managing my life between school and working has been very very hard. As have the past few months personally. This semester’s combination of bad news, bad timing and bad decisions have caused me to turn into a bit of a different person. In the past I have not had many problems multitasking and keeping my sense of humor while under stress, and I really don’t think this has been the case this semester. I know it has been difficult on my friends and family also.
SO in the interest of holiday thankfulness and the fact that you simply will not be receiving a Christmas/holiday card from me this year I would like to thank you.
For being there for me and also letting me be absent for a few months, listening to me rant when my entire body is a giant trembling ball of stress, holding my hand while I cry, letting me bow out of the bar scene, understanding when I don’t call you back or when I’m snappy on the phone, caring enough to express when you are worried about me and just generally being the patient, wonderful people you are. I know that I have not been a nice package of sunshine and reasonable logic to deal with recently, thanks for sticking around to figure out why. Unless of course you are a stranger reading this in which case, hi! welcome! sorry that you stumbled upon this particular post, I’m sure you are a wonderful person too! Want to give me an internship? My talents lie in Marketing, Public Relations and Sarcasm. If this seems like a good fit, let’s chat.
I love you all and am excited to have a chance to get my life, my sanity and myself back over the next month or so.
