I moved the majority of my stuff into Alma today. Tim helped, which was nice because I sure do have a lot of stuff. There's still more at home that I'll have to move next week. However, it's strange because I think that each year I move in I end up having less and less stuff, which seems like it'd be the opposite. Whatev though, I don't feel like I'm missing anything. Next week when I get the rest of my stuff up here (aka camera) I'll take a pic of the dorm room... it looks sweet this year.

I'm just here in Alma for the weekend- I have one more week at Bobs back home, Hootie and the Blowfish on the 3rd and then officially back in Alma for the year. I'm excited, though I think there is still a lot of stuff that I haven't finished yet in preparation for the semester. There is one week left though, so maybe I'll be ready. I'll update later on as to how the summer went- the short of it is that it was super busy and I did a lot/missed out on a lot. But that's another day- I'm all tuckered out from this moving stuff.

So tonight we saw the musical "Curtains" and it was pretty cool as far as musicals go. Much different than "Spring Awakening" last night, but still cool. Had more of a classic musical feel to it. After the show the director and some of the actors/actresses met with the group to talk to us,. since Joe (the theater teacher) knows the woman in the show, who is pictured on the poster next to me in the first picture amongst the glare. They were cool, they stood on the stage and we were in the first few rows to ask them questions, but the Q&A session was pretty short as the ushers wanted to get the theater closed.

After the show, we went outside and this guy was standing around to take pictures with. David Hyde Pierce, the guy from Fraiser. He was in the play, as you can see on the playbill below too that he signed before the picture. He brought his own sharpie to sign things, so that was pretty cool. So yeah, there I am with a famous dude. I wasn't jumping and squeaking at him like some of the girls, but it was defnitely a picture-worthy moment, if just for posting here on LJ. 


And that's really all I have for now, so maybe something exciting tomorrow will happen too. I'll take a picture if it does.

Here are some pictures.... a few of me, but mostly random buildings that looked interesting. I figured I'd post them on here, because apparently Tim has already seen pictures of the city, but maybe someone else will be interested in taking a look. Or maybe not, but they're here regardless. Things in the city have been going well, I really like it here and surprisingly enough, the theater kids are being nice ot me. Well, they've divided themselves into 2 groups, but I've been accepted to one, so that's nice. I'm not wandering around by myself. Though I would. I think it would be nice to move here, where its sooo crowded, you wouldn't have to make friends and be all social, you could walk around here for years and not be noticed if you didn't want to be. For as many people as there are around, it seems pretty private in the sense that everyone is so preoccupied with themselves or whatever that they just leave you alone. Yup, I like it here. 

So far, the performances have been good.Spring Awakening was awesome, and I highly recommend that people look into it. More to come later, but here are the pics.

Listening to Social Distortion is wonderful, and it's making for a great end of day. I should invest more time in listening to them. And to blogging, because I like doing it but for some reason I haven't been; this is weird because the lack of blogs happened right about when I finally got around to having nothing to do. How weird is that. 

In other news, I got the internship for the fall. AND IT'S PAID!!! Which is sweet, because I didn't think it would be, so I was fretting a tad about what to do. And it seems like a heck of a lot of fun at the public access tv station, so woot woot to that, and to Doc Gilbert for finding me the internship. Life is working out well.

And I'm going to apply for a summer research grant... I really hope I get it. It's $675 to carry out original research and then present the findings around Thanksgiving time to the Michigan Academy of something or other. I think it'd be sweet, even though Tim thinks I'm crazy for wanting to do more work. But I've written some research proposals, so it'd be really awesome to have the opportunity to actually carry out the research and see what happens. And the grant would pay for the materials and things I would need for the research, which would be tremendously awesome. It would help with grad school too, because I'd have experience and it'd be a real accomplishment to show off. I'm sure that there are lots of other people applying for this too (believe it or not), but it's worth a shot anyway. So fingers crossed there, the decision is made the 30th or something. I'm meeting with my prof/advisor chick Janie tomorrow to discuss it.

I'm kinda looking forward to NY. It's gonna suck to be not working, and thus only spending money because that situation has been sucky lately, but I think that it will be quite the experience regardless. Though I will miss my dirtball a lot. And Giselle and Bert the turtle. Bertle. Yeah, and most other people too, though as well all know there are more than a few people who I wish would just wander off forever. 

And on the note of forever... Saturday Tim and I celebrated 1 year. We went golfing, and that is how we ended up with Bert the turtle. He was on the green and so we caught him in a gatorade bottle and that was that. And Tim got me the prettiest pearl necklace, which is awesome because a) he really does listen! and b) I don't have to wait til Christmas to get one! That rocks! Life is good these days.

I'm tired of the drama. 
So take that kids....
* * *
* * *

Section 1 is finished... all sources used, and it's eeking onto the 7th page.
Hmm.... I want some breakfast! Unfortunately, Saga doesnt open for another hour or so, so I'm stuck here writing... but progress is being made.

* * *
* * *

So, I'm up to 8 sources. And another half page. And now, a rant as well.

What the hell do people really have friends for? To share fun times, life experiences and problems? So you can just go off at one point or another and totally disregard the fact that they've been there for you on one occasion or another, or most likely, if you're friends, many occasions that involve drunk dialing, relationship issues, dead goldfish or some combination of these things. So why, if you have these people who are there to tell you partially what you want to hear and partially what you need to hear, whether you accept it or not.... why do you disregard them for doing exactly what theyr'e supposed to - being your friend? Sometimes I get frustrated with this, because if you do feel a certain way, why the hell would you openly blog/message/converse about this where said friends can see that they really dont mean shit? WTF is that crap anyway.

I think that I need some space. You know, I'm very busy academically.

Not particularly.
Work was slow, but Tim was here when I woke up so that was wonderful; then he came to work to keep me company for the first hour of the morning. And let me tell you, business did not pick up from then.
Then, I came back here to do some homework. So far I've accomplished a shower, making some coffee and soup, trimming my cuticles.... and I made a powerpoint presentation for my Brit Lit class. The real problem here is the fact that, as I was gathering info for the presentation, I started finding really interesting stuff. And I can now tell you all about him; how many kids he had, what he was interested in, the dates he reigned as King, etc. All sorts of sweet info; far too much for the presentation and not what I should have been doing with my time. But here are some links, because he's cool. And he is the only British King to never have an affair. And, his wifey Charlotte had 15 kids... they didn't all live, but there were 15 of them buggers that she popped out... Some info on Georgie and then also the list of his kids. He's pretty cool, even though he's pretty unpopular as the guy who lost the colonies.
So then... I have to write my audit thingy and my proposal thingy. And those are the two big projects... but it's cool, because I'm not sleeping again... I know, it's probably not very good for me, but there are so many hours that are just wasted away... sleeping... 

So, if you're up and wanna talk, odds are, I'll be around. Drinkin some coffee and thinkin about homework. Or the fish game, because I'll probably play that too intermittently, to keep myself awake. I love the fish game!
