EriQ "nudge"d me on livejournal, a feature I did not know existed, which is basically a "hey, my life consists of nothing more than reading your journal and it hasn't been updated, so why bother living?" move. So, in the interest of pushing back EriQ's inevitable departure from this world, I shall update this silly thing once more.
In short, my life has been swallowed by responsibilities. I don't get more than 7 hours of sleep, even on weekends, and I'm perpetually running. I love it! Between work, getting in shape for frisbee, trying to see friends, and going to tech and rehearsals, my relaxation time has vanished into the same abyss that my favorite pair of socks vanished when I was eight. note: I never actually had a favorite pair of socks, I was just trying to be cool...*sniffle*.
In other news, I'm now co-lighting person for SJST, because Snellings couldn't do it. Woot for hanging/gelling/programming/setting cues in three days! I have to figure out how to get into the space soon, or we're all screwed. I'm very upsett with Berger because he got to go to USITT last year, which i REALLY wanted to go to, but couldn't take any more time off of class, even though it was in Louisville and REALLY close. Bastard.
OH! But I've found a couple of potential jobs for next summer that could be AWESOME. There's a stage/movie lighting company that doesn't mind hiring technical folks with minimal experience for repair work and the like, which I could try to get. Also, Jess tells me her dad would probably hire me to work at his contracting company! We were at their shop today because he was giving us any wood we wanted from there and it was SO COOL! Most of it was just a big shop with tons of wood and saws and awesomeness. But then Bob (her dad) mentioned that we could check out the offices and he points to this door in to the big blocked off area that I had previously assumed they just didn't own or something. So we go in this nondescript door, and suddenly we are in a house. A georgeous freakin' house with a working kitchen and everything. There's an UPSTAIRS and it has all these windows that just look out into the shop! Her dad shows us this one room with all these cabinets, and you pull on most of them and there are shelves and such, but you pull on one of them, and four of them swing out together and there's a hidden bathroom back there with a shower and everything! SO COOL!!! And he showed us some pictures of his other work, including some highrise that belonged to some millionaire in Boston that they gutted and redid. Apparently that one job was so nice that it is singlehandedly paying for Jess's college education. It was wicked wicked cool! So if the lighting job doesn't pan out, I'm totally going to get Bob to hire me. As Jess put it, "w00t nepotism!"
