We danced around the subject of "us" today. I shall see what the next few weeks and months bring with baited breath, but everything is in the open and I feel so much better for it.

There is no less than two feet of snow on the ground here. My car is completely buried. Well, you can see some of her, but the Queen of the Desert is currently the Queen of the Blizzard. I'll post some pictures later if I can motivate myself to do so.

It's good to be back north - while I have issues socially, I'm slowly going to fall back into the educational rhythm and get into it. I have a lot to prove this semester, especially considering I'm going to be ill prepared for my Monday class. Stupid USPS shipping. I'll at least borrow and read the book and pray that we don't get to it or simply discuss it and move on.

One of my classes has temporarily been canceled but may be back on soon; I've signed up for an 8:30 in the meantime. Oi. I'm exceedingly lazy and don't want to wake up early, but what can you do. The real world's only a year away; I can't take time diddling around and sleeping in. I have to be on my toes, so to speak.

I don't have much else to say. I think I stopped updating this because I felt I'd lost all interesting topics... I'm sure I'll find something. But I was much more active when I was depressed. Now that that stage in my life is over, ah... I'll cut off before I end up going off on an emo rant. Sleep will do me wonders, as will my dull history course.


Until next time.

I'm not making any promises on how much I'll update, as we can all see how that's gone the past few years - I go crazy for a few days then fall off the face of the earth for a months/years. However, seeing as how this is still here, I may as well throw something on and see if it sticks this time. I'll just have to put a bunch of glue on this time.

I'm currently on the bus back to DC from NYC - I had a job this winter stage managing a show that was in the final round of workshops. The good news is that they want to hire me for next year's final production. The better news is that from there it has the potential to tour nationally or internationally if someone at the festival likes it enough. And my ass will be along for the ride.

The show is a steampunk gaslamp opera. The woman who wrote it ( and I'm sure others ) define opera as "park and lark" - there's some action until SUDDENLY!EMOTION and you stand very still or move very little and walk around and sing about SUDDENLY!EMOTION. This was very different; it's a who-dunnit crime mystery which, in its completed stage, will have toggle switches on the audience's chairs. When certain pieces of evidence are introduced, the audience will have the ability to vote on whether they want to see it or not. The audience will also vote on who they believe is guilty of the murder at the end of the show. The music is wonderfully catchy, too, and the group doing the show is fantastic - it's a chamber band, plus a puppeteer, plus the lead/director/writer/composer.

So I'm glowing right now. And humming the damn music. And wishing I was a soprano so I could actually sing most of it, because it's so beautiful.

I head back to school on Tuesday for second semester. Durang Durang opens in three weeks, and in a month I move to Mother Courage and Her Children. It will be a busy semester. I also have to spend some quality time looking for internships for next summer. Busybusybusy. But before then I get a few days' rest and get to spend some time in St. Mary's and Rockville visiting dear friends before I go back north, either for a year or five months. That will be determined based on the internship I get - whether it be Broadway, Celebrate Brooklyn, Bristol Valley, or somewhere in DC. Or maybe somewhere else entirely. Perhaps Chicago? Houston? Nobody knows.

So that's still my life - very laissez-fair, so to speak. One day at a time and all that jazz. Though the fact that there's a rainbow in the form of a halo around the sun can't be a bad sign of the times to come, can it?

I created this journal in 2002.

Yikes. It's been a long time.

What did today bring?

-$400 to the car ( oil change, new belt tensioner, and I have another appointment to get the thermostat replaced so it heats up quicker ).
-Appointment on Monday to decide whether I have to get my wisdom teeth removed ( considering that the fucking thing is growing into the side of my jaw, I'd say that's a yes ).

+Saw Mara
+Watched 101 Dalmations, The Land Before Time, and Anastasia with Mara

And now, all I have to do is freak out about the potential for surgery.

Priscilla's check engine light came on, but she could just be mad since she's 800 overdue for her oil change. I keep bribing her before I start her. It's worked so far. I did check the oil, and it's neither mucky nor low. I suspect it could be the fanbelt I've heard acting up. Not sure.

But no one cares about my car issues. XD

Today I'm lunching with Mara, then ?, then ?.

The boiler's been broken for a couple days, so the house was fuckin' cold. We took advantage of this by stumbling out at about 2 PM, driving down to Georgetown, fighting the savages for parking spots, and seeing Sherlock Holmes. It was a pretty good movie; I enjoyed it. I prefer Guy Richie's older stuff, like Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels ( which everyone should see if they haven't ), but I still liked this one. It was action-packed and witty and clever. Not the best movie of 2009 ( that may end up going to Fantastic Mr. Fox ), but enjoyable. Will I see the sequel? Probably. Cliffhangers ftw!

I'm going to leave you all with a kitty. I was going to continue, but I realize that I'm running very late for a lunch appointment. I shall find something boring to go on about tomorrow.

Writer's Block: Crazy in Love [Jan. 4th, 2010|12:23 pm]

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love?

I couldn't resist this one - the craziest thing I've ever done for love was come out to my parents, and I've never regretted it since.
