Delightfuly Employed…

I am unemployed no more… I’ve accepted a job offer to work at My Smart Simulations, in Saratoga NY, where I’ll start on Tuesday.

WOOT!!! Also I’ve got everything set with the Registrar, so yesh, I’m now Officially an Alumna of RPI, tho I don’t have the paper in my hand yet, SIS says I’m cleared. And the dog ended her hunger strike when we put Marinara in her food, and we’ve fixed the bug in the household network that was blocking access to a handful of sites, including Google and Hotmail. (Bizarre odd semi-faliure of the internet.)

Now it’s time to begin the apartment search.

Graduation! And 3 Months Loffly…

So I had my graduation ceremony today… first I couldn’t find the humanities section to line up… alot of us couldn’t. We all ran around yelling “WHERE IS THE HUMANITIES!!!” Then it got borring, we got rained on… the guy next to me was the first person to yell BINGO at buzzword bingo, got my empty folder with the paper that says “Psche! See the Registrar!!!” Cause of course I’m still 4 credits short… then they didn’t even sing All We’ve Learned at Rensselaer which is totally the best part of RPI graduations. Then Macarino Grill for food, then home for many cards and cute cousins all over…(There’s just two of them… but they were EVERYPLACE.)

Also, and quite equaly important, is that today is exactly 3 months since a Jake and my first date. (Is that grammatically correct?) Happy 3 Months Dearie… sorry it got overshadowwed by my graduation. Thanks for coming and sitting in the rain, sick and all. Aishiteru!

Wheee…. right then… another new icon… made sans tablet I’ll have you know! As I’ve lent that to Jake. It’s appropriate to the post tho which is even better. *Higgles.* Cause last time were an “Oh No!” style icon for a test that didn’t really evoke an “Oh No!” just cause I wanted to use the new icon. *Higgles more.*

OK… first off in the category of things that I’m really kind of pleased with… on Friday, just as I was on my way out the door to go see Jake in the Theater Slam… I got a call from my mum, who got a call from the Not so Common Players… because I put my summer phone on the sheet, and my cell on the resume and apparently they only had the sheet. Annnnnyhow…. I’ve been cast as Little Red Riding Hood in this summers production of “Into the Woods.” *Glee.* I did this show… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 5 years ago now, when I was a Jr. and got passed over for the same roll (it went to a Freshman) and it’s kind of made me all mushy and gleeful that I’ll finally get to play it. *Bounce Bounce Bounce.*

Secondly, Theater Slam were funay as all hell. Jake makes a really funny Philip Marlow… the Velma girl who’s name has slipped my mind was spot on with her impression thereof, Scooby and Shaggy evoked their characters terrifically, especially considering Pete looks nothing like a big brown great dane, Mike and Alex were hilariously inept as the mindlessly footprint following Hardy Boys, and Maggie as was a terrific foil for their moronically clue-obsessed Nancy Drew. Emily made a pretty darn good villain too, and the Millionar was delightfully lost. It was a laugh and a half and I’m delighted I went.

Eugine had my Dinning Room DVD… and now I do. *Grin.*

And Last Night at the final session of this semesters Dungeons and Dragons… it ended such that we all lived to tell the tale… and the way my Halfling Rouge/Cleric of Brandobaris is telling the story… she saved everyone when she pushed that big red button. *Higgles.* Except possibly Bacardi… but he had a history of trying to kill her anyhow.

*Bounces More.* Now if somone would just scrape my Half starved Half Elemental of the Cobblestones of Diagon… everything would be peachy…

3 Down, 3 to go…

Yey Titanic. *Higgles.* The first weekend went pretty well I think… aside from the minor calamities Sunday. Capstone is Over… and done with… and I can BREATH… but this week isn’t going to be a cakewalk either. I’ve got 2 performances of Acting Class’s Scotches, Tonight and Thursday (the latter of which will be major crunchiness to get from there to Titanic,) and I’ve got to get things hammered out regarding my missing 4 credits, and write some essays for my lit class which I begged to get into but have been not really paying as much attention to as I should since… well Capstone and Titanic had taken over my life.

The 5 Stages of the All Nighter…

You’ve heard of the 5 Stages of Grief… now… the Five Stages of the All Nighter:

Denial: This is the portion of the day you spend trying to get the work done so you can sleep at night.

Anger: When the all nighter becomes inevitable, you make damn sure everyone knows you have to pull one, and you’re not pleased.

Bargaining: This is that part of the night where you think you might get it done in time to catch 2 hours…

Depression: Or maybe you could lay down for just 20 minutes… yeah right.

Acceptance: You realize there will be NO SLEEP, and crack another can of Carbonated Caffeine, and buckle down. The most work will be done during this stage… unless you succumbed to the temptation to sleep in the previous stage of the all nighter, and there IS no all nighter, cause you sure as hell didn’t wake after 20 minutes.

I think I’ve just reached Acceptance.
