Taking care of business


So I've been home now for about two weeks and find that life back in Mill Valley is, for lack of a better word, dull. Compared to DC, there is no Metro and our little town just doesn't measure up. Well anyway, enough about that.

I've been searching for a third job to have this summer because I have nothing to do for the month of May because my real summer job doesn't start until June 13th. This search is not proving to be all that easy but hopefully, I'll get something out of it.

I've visited CTE a few times since I've been back and it was a little weird because I finally realized that I'm out of the loop on a whole lot of things because I'm no longer an active member. Anyway, I have my new department to feel connected in (well, hardly new considering I've been there a year).

We are still waiting to hear what the 2011-2012 season is going to be for CUADrama next year and it is nerve-racking. I want to start working on monologues right away. I want to get cast a lot this year. But we will see what happens.

Anyway, that's been my life so far. It's really not all that interesting right now, hence why I haven't blogged in a few weeks.

Hopefully it will liven up soon.

And have you travelled very far? Far as the eye can see

Hello Everyone!

FRESHMEN YEAR IS OVER!!!! I had my last final today at eight in the morning and now I'm sitting in my dorm attempting to pack everything up, which is going well. I'm leaving campus at one today and then I'm back to the Bay on Monday.

I can't believe how fast time went. It seems like yesterday that I was moving in. And in a blink of an eye, all my stuff is in garbage bags awaiting it's stay at our family friend's house. It makes me so sad. I love my college and I'm not ready to say goodbye to all of my crazy and wonderful drama kids. But I will see them in four months which will be great.

And I'm going to miss Washington DC so much. It is a great city and I have loved getting to know it. I love the fact that I can go see amazing art and the amazing museums and eat Chop't whenever I want. There are no Chop't on the West Coast, it is such a tragedy. How will I get my fix?

But home will be nice as well. I look forward to sleeping in my own bed and not worrying about RAs and annoying neighbors. At least next year, I will have my own room which I can decorate however I want. I'm thinking lots of posters, especially from The Departed.

This year has been great because it has made me be content with who I am and now I don't care what anyone thinks. Thank you Catholic University for that!

Now a pictorial journey of how my room looks now compared to the whole year:



Now as "Baby, You're a Rich Man" plays on my itunes, I say goodbye to Freshmen Year! What a great ending.

Osama Bin Laden is dead!

I was at a Drama party tonight when it was announced that he died. Having lived overseas for nine years, the Expat part of me is jumping up and down cheering at the top of my lungs. He terrorized us when we lived in Asia. Any Expat could tell you that.

But the rational part of me is saying that it's weird to be celebrating his death. He died in a violent way and it's almost creepy that America is throwing a huge party about it.

But the world is safer for now!!!

And Pope John Paul was beatified today! I loved him so much. He was such a great pope, he deserves to be a saint.

And Gilbie's, CUA Drama's end of the year awards ceremony was tonight and it was awesome!!! My Freshmen Drama career is complete!! Yeah!!

Now it's onto the studying and the finals!!!

At least the Al Qaeda leader is gone. The world can be safe.
