Day 27 ? This month, in great detail
The first week of the month was taken up with packing, working, trying to see people I wouldn't see again for months, etc. I was stressed and unhappy -- I don't multitask well, and I was worried about coming back to Oberlin.
But we drove out to Ohio, and on Saturday I moved in. And within five minutes of entering my building, I'd been welcomed with open arms and invited out to brunch by a bunch of people I'd like, never even met before. My month then proceeded to be AWESOME. Almost without exception. I don't think I have been bored once. There's always something I can be doing. Or, uh, you know, something I should
be doing. Like...homework.
I don't want to do too much reiteration of things I've already mentioned in previous entries. Oh, one of the highlights of the month was definitely Johnny Blazes' Wo(n)man Show. Johnny Blazes is the founder of OCircus, and ze came back to do a sort of one-person cabaret. Ze did circus acts, opera singing, dance routines, and little autobiographical snippets. It was, by turns, adorable, hilarious, and unbelievably sexy.
It ended with hir saying something along the lines of "People ask me, 'Are you a boy or a girl?' And someday, I just want to answer...'No.'" And I was like " &hearts &hearts &hearts !!!"
Recent things: "The Dead Hear Footsteps." I'd signed up to do part of next week's episode, but I hadn't started thinking about that, really. Then, on Saturday, we all got an email saying "Listen, no one volunteered to write part 1 of tomorrow's episode. Can someone get it to me by this evening at the latest?" I had no plans, so I volunteered. It was...scary. It was a lot of pressure for something I'd never done before, not even a little. It took me a lot longer than I anticipated, and I got really super stressed about it. But I eventually submitted it. I couldn't be in it or listen to it on Sunday because I had Semi-Autos, but afterwards, everyone was like "AHHH YOUR PART WAS SO GOOD, THANK YOU." And I was all "O rly? ;_;" and they were like "YA RLY." So...I am really super proud and happy about that. The only criticism I got was that I wrote Hardin as being too smart XD
And tonight, "Evenings at the Wormhole" premiered! It's a weekly semi-improv serial. We're all different historical or literary characters, who meet in a bar somewhere outside the bounds of time and space. There's Catherine the Great, Jack the Ripper, Shakespeare, Shakespeare's muse, Vlad Tepes, Joan of Arc, and I'm Oedipus. It was fabulous. It went over really
well. And I had a beard, and the general consensus was that I looked really good with facial hair o_o I was told by turns that I looked like Gerard Butler, David Tennant, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Beck. lolwut.
Baaaaah so happy. There's been some personal drama stuff, I guess. My emotions are confusing and don't make any sense. I feel these things, and I know they're utterly illogical, but I...can't make them go away. But it's not overwhelming, and it's all stuff that I brought on myself anyway.
Overall I am ecstatic! But it's 2 a.m and I'm obviously not getting any work done, so it's bedtime. Sorry this was a terribly-written entry, brain function = no.( The 3 remaining days.Collapse )
HEY SO does anyone remember that 30-day meme that I started, like, a month and a half ago? No? That's ok. I do. Here's day 27.
