Welcome to the very first episode of Trinity’s Serenity. First of all, I want to take a moment of thanks and appreciation to everyone who’s listening, everyone who turned on post notifications, everyone who shared my podcast. I really appreciate you all. This is just something that I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. But with this past semester, it’s been rough. I’m definitely going to touch upon that in my second episode, “Coping with COVID” and really I wanted to introduce myself, to those who don’t know who I am and then just kind of keep it really short and sweet.

So, again, hello, welcome to this space. My name is Trinity and I am an RIT student. I’ll be graduating soon. Maybe. I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.

I’m hard of hearing and I’m from Connecticut. Yeah, Connecticut! And really, I think I have a pretty interesting life. I’ve been to several different countries and I can’t wait to go back and met a lot of people. I think I have a different, somewhat different outlook on life and I can’t wait to share that with you all.

The guests that I invite, they’re going to be people from my school, who also had their own experiences, and people that I met abroad. So, definitely stay tuned for that.

For now, it’s just going to be me because I’m just trying to, like, set things up. I’m not an audio editor thingy. I didn’t even look up a YouTube video. So this is all like raw, unscripted. I’m trying my best, so please definitely bear with me. In Anchor,the platform that I’m using, they have audio messages that you can send me. So if you have any feedback whatsoever or a specific topic that you want to talk about, definitely utilize that tool.

I will be posting transcripts because of accessibility like I am HoH. I’d be kind of rude and, like, hypocritical of me to not post transcripts of things. You know, I advocate for deaf rights. But, you know, I’m making a podcast because it is easier for me. Unfortunately, yes. It’s a copout. It’s OK. And also, like, NAH I’m not going to get dolled up for a YouTube video.

Anyways, I’m sorry I’m rambling at this point. Let me get back to what I was going to say.

So, my goals and expectations for the podcast really are to have like different segments. So, I want to talk about traveling and some episodes. I’m definitely going to talk about college life, dealing with a hearing loss, dealing with different identities, like I said in my trailer, and life in other countries (that has to do with traveling, I guess). And basically just like, oh, also one really important thing is like mindfulness. And I really wanna like spread positive vibes. So I’m definitely going to be doing some, like, words of affirmation and like calming things because I think it’s really important to have a space for that as well. It’s Trinity Serenity. So, it makes sense that I’m talking about serene topics.

Also, on the not-so-serene side, I will be talking or giving my take on social justice issues. I am a criminal justice major at a tech school. I don’t know if I said that. I’m sorry, I really should write a script, but I just feel like it’s a lot more authentic if I just speak from the heart.

So, yeah, I mean, we will talk about a variety of topics. And again, if there’s anything that you want to talk about, definitely let me know and provide feedback. Like if you can’t hear me. If you can’t understand.

I’m sorry. I’m hard of hearing. I took speach therapy a long time ago and I’m losing it. So, I’m sorry you can’t hear me, but I can’t hear you half the time. So it’s whatever. Welcome to my life. Sorry. That was rude. That was really rude. But it’s all. It’s all. It’s all out of lightheartedness. I swear.

Another thing, just an FYI , I accidentally, like clicked on like the ad thing. So you may or may not hear some ads sprinkled in there. So just… I mean, I’m not saying ignore them, but like a sister’s gotta do what she got to do. I’m trying to, trying to make a little hustle out of this, maybe if I can. All right. So please, respect the game. Don’t hate me. I’m just trying to sprinkle, I’m going to sprinkle them in sometime. You won’t even know that it’s an ad. Just kidding, you’ll know, but — I’m just I’m sorry. I’m just awkward.

But anyways, thank you so much for listening. I hope the first episode did not scare you. The next episode is going to be about my experience in the fall semester, “Coping with COVID”. I might, may or may not have some special guests, we’ll see. But yeah, stay tuned and thank you for embarking on this journey with me.

Oh you like that word? I used embarking. OK, I’m sorry. Let me stop.

Let me go and actually do my work. I’m actually procrastinating. Don’t procrastinate.

Don’t be like me. Be productive today you guys are great. Thank you.
