*sings* It’s our anniversary! Wow! It’s been a whole year of Away With Words The Podcast and YeMash The Blog! I couldn’t be more proud in this moment. I am so thankful to my ladies, AjaNoAsia and Dria P, at the podcast and to the entire team at YeMash, including our official blogger, Tati, our producer, Michael, and our Vibe Specialist, Kenny. When I had the idea of doing a podcast, I had no concept of what it could look and be like in a year. If it wasn’t for all of you, it would be nothing close to what we’ve grown. Together, we’ve each gained skills, and never kept them from one another. I’m so blessed to have you.
This podcast and blog has been a sanctuary; as Dria P called it, a weekly diary. Listening back to earlier episodes, our growth is extremely apparent (and not just in audio quality). We’ve grown emotionally. Our mindsets have been challenged and forced to widen. We are each other’s sound boards and this is a space where we can truly be who we are, whoever we are that day.
Although this year, for me (as of late especially), has been filled with emotional turmoil, my happiest moments weigh so heavily in my mind. Those are moments that were spent creating content, recording, shooting promos, writing blog posts, emerging on our YouTube channel, and engaging with our supporters. This process has brought me true joy and proved to me that I am everything that I wish to be. It’s only up from here.
We’ll be back the first Wednesday of November for Season 2! Until then, click the SoundCloud link above for some of our favorite moments of Season 1. Love you, Wordies!
P.S. Here's a little something special! A year at a glance at all of our visual chaos!
