I’ve missed you! Had to take a bit of a hiatus to deal with school starting.
School has been rough so far…it’s my last semester, and there was a lot of bullshit administrative stuff that I had to deal with in the first couple weeks which made me so stressed that I couldn’t think straight. Then, since I’m taking four movement classes (more than I have in the past couple of semesters), I’ve had to re-evaluate what my physical limits are. Some days I would do a million things, then be so drained that I would literally sleep through the ENTIRE next day. Yeah. So THAT’S been fun. But now I think I may have stabilized a little bit (knock on wood). This week has been good so far. But then again, it’s only Tuesday.
I’ve also been dealing with pain. Like, so much pain. I got Achilles tendonitis pretty bad within the first couple weeks on top of regular getting-back-in-shape soreness. And now my back and shoulders have been killing me. UGHH. My therapist told me I’m showing a lot of the same symptoms as some of her clients who have fibromyalgia, and wants me to have my doctor check it out. I’m just hoping he won’t scowl at me like I diagnosed myself based on a WebMD article…that’s not really in my doctor’s nature, but fibromyalgia has so much stigma attached to it that I really don’t know what to expect. Blah.

Back to my heating-pad-on-back-lying-in-bed-comatose sesh.
I can’t dedicate as much time to it as I used to anymore. I wish I could, ‘cause I’m a compulsive image hoarder, but in all reality, I can’t. I come home at the end of a busy day and I guess I just don’t feel like spending an hour going through 50+ pages of updates. So I’m trying to keep up with everyone (my favorites, at least) on a daily basis, but if I happen to skip a couple days, I try not to kick myself anymore. I just check my favorite blogs, or I just go about 20 pages in before quitting. That obsessive compulsive side of me hates that I’m missing out on what could be some pretty great posts, buuuut that logical, human side of me reminds me that I’m tired and just need to go to bed, that it’s not the end of the world.
Not like any of this matters, it’s just something I’ve been thinking about.
I have no idea why I kind of abandoned Tumblr for the past couple of weeks or so. Guess I just needed a break or something? But I definitely miss all of you Tumblr folk!
I’ll probably be back to posting later this week.
I started working at the ASU Starbucks last Thursday, and it has been sucking my life away. By the time I got home each night, I didn’t have the energy to face 60 pages on my Tumblr dash. Buuuut now I’m back.
Work is hard, guyz. But fun, too!
Ever have one of those days where you just feel…off? All weird and funky? I’m having one of those off, weird, funky days. Nothing particularly bad happened. I just feel…off. And I hate it! It’s a crappy feeling.
Maybe I just really want this day to be over because I have a second interview for a job at the ASU Starbucks locations tomorrow, and I reeeeally really want to get that done and find out whether I have the job or not. Maybe that’s it.
I don’t know.
Just an off day.
I’ve been up all night filling out job applications and scouring craigslist for more prospects. I am a woman possessed. I can’t stop thinking about it, and therefore can’t sleep. :( SOMEONE JUST HIRE ME ALREADY! Aghh.
My next goal is to cold call the list of Starbucks locations around Tempe that I’ve compiled and ask them if they’re hiring. If they are, I will go there in person with my application, resume and cover letter and talk to a manager. This whole anonymous online application process doesn’t do shit for me. Time to get aggressive.
I’ve literally lost track of how many places I’ve applied to. All I know is that I applied at McDonald’s the other night out of desperation, and even those fuckers won’t call me in for an interview.
My life, ladies and gents.
Since I’m probably the last person on earth who hasn’t seen this season yet, I won’t put it behind a cut. Contains some spoilers; you’ve been warned. I’m only about five episodes in.
—>I think the Jason-goes-to-bible-camp subplot is totally uninteresting. Does it ever end??
—>Ughh, I hate Maryann. She’s so full of shit. But that’s obvious, right?
—>Yayyyy, finding out more about Eric!
—>I LOVE when Eric and Pam speak Swedish to each other. At least, I think that’s what they’re speaking.
—>Jessica is fabulous. I’m jealous of how pretty she is.
—>Not sure how I feel about Sookie meeting another telepath…
—>But yay for Sam for meeting another shapeshifter! That crazy, overly noble guy needs a friend.
And that’s all I’ve got for now. Pleeeease, no future spoilers!
I’m relishing every single day! Getting up early for once, being productive—cleaning, organizing, job-hunting, etc., enjoying each minute that I’m not in school.
I’m not sure I can take a year more of school. But so help me God, I’ve already done a capstone project. I’d look like a dumbass if I didn’t graduate after that…
"Maybe This Time" from Cabaret and "A Trip to the Library" from She Loves Me. They’ll show that I can sing mezzo-y and alto-y and I can act the hell out of them.
Now I have to choose a monologue. I hate monologues! Bah.
I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this or not, but I am artistic directing the spring Undergrad concert at ASU. We had adjudications today! Twenty people showed work. After a lonnnng adjudication session and a lonnnnng discussion, we (the adjudication panel and I) narrowed it down to ten pieces. I think it’s going to be a great show.
But now comes the hard part—emailing the people who didn’t make it. I’m such a people pleaser and I hate telling people “No”! Buuuut I have to. :/ I hope they don’t hate me!
