So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye…
The Thespian Thoughts blog posts are meant to be a college student’s point of view on various topics in the world of theater to educate all on what encompasses this particular area of the arts.
Hello Readers, welcome to my very last weekly blog post. I know, I can’t believe it either. So much has happened in the last fifteen weeks and yet it seems so sudden that this is the end. I have gotten to share so much with you about my experience in theater and what it means to me. It has been such a blessing to have been allowed this platform to discuss something that is so near and dear to my heart.
I’m glad I got to discuss so many different aspects of theater with you, some professional, some personal, and some that was just frivolous fun. I am proud that I have been able to provide you with new content on the same topic each week as well as accomplish my goal of referencing different plays and musicals in the title of every single one!
This is not to say that I haven’t failed in some respects. I had wanted to do the Typecast Podcast, but unfortunately, my semester outside of The River got far too crazy to record and edit anything of quality, and you all deserved better than that. Hopefully a future editor will be able to incorporate audio essay into their own blog, no matter the subject.
I also cannot leave here without giving a huge thank you shout out to my co-editor Willy. He has been an awesome person to work with and I couldn’t have gotten through this apprenticeship without his help and insight. We made a great team and I wish him all the best as he graduates this weekend!
I’d like to thank our supervisor Shana Youngdahl as well as the Sandy editors Alex and Elayna for being supportive guiding lights for us throughout the entire semester.
Last but not least, I have to thank you, the readers for supporting this blog and The River itself. It has been a pleasure to read submissions and choose content for this literary journal, and if I have improved it in anyway for you all, for that I am grateful.
So though I’d hate to go and leave this pretty site (see what I did there?), I must. Please welcome our summer editors with open arms hearts, and minds. I think I will leave you with words from comedy and Broadway great, Carol Burnett:
“I’m so glad we had this time together
just to have a laugh or sing a song
seems we just get started
and before you know it
comes the time we have to say so long…”
