Happy Sunday and also happy Easter!
For those of you who are on spring break, I hope you’re loving your time off. Not to be bitter, but I don’t get one and I need one. Please let me join you on break. Also, please send chocolate. I’ve run out.
Fun life event: On Thursday I performed for the second time ever with my hip hop dance team in our university’s largest student event of the term and it was incredible. Growing up I never played team sports, I was more of a singles tennis player than anything else. But dancing with my team has been such a rush in the past year and I love feeling at home with them. The night was special for me and I really look forward to continuing to dance with them.
Thoughts: I want to take a brief moment to talk about the most recent episode of Survivor that aired on Wednesday 12th. I’ve been a life long fan of Survivor and have seasons on DVD and I’m more often than not thinking about the game. When Varner outed Zeke, I was so shocked. As a member of the LGBT+ community, I was very surprised that he crossed that line. It was not right and no one should ever have to be at the other end of that. I think he recognized his mistake very quickly and while apologies can’t fix what he did, it was very clear he regretted his actions. Zeke is a stellar human being and he handled the situation incredibly well. I was rooting for him in his first season and I will continue to root for him. I’ve seen people angered at CBS and Probst but I believe that it was unavoidable to air that scene and Zeke assured Probst from his first season that he would deal with the situation if it ever arose. Obviously no one would have thought it would happen like that, but it did. If you read Zeke’s opinion piece here, I think we can all agree that he’s stronger than life and that Probst and CBS were there for him throughout the situation.
Book wise: my life has been empty. School is incredibly stressful right now and I really don’t have the time to read anymore and it sucks because I’ve got so many amazing stories I want to delve into. I miss writing reviews and while I could just write a review of a book I’ve already read, it’s not the same as writing a review right after reading a book and still being in that world.
The next Sunday Post will be right before my final exams so prepare yourself for turmoil.
