DDR is not "Down, Down Runt"



I don't know where that title came from, so don't ask.

The point--last night I played a lot of DDR and had a lot of fun. It was the only time all day my headache went away. I actually passed some five and six foot songs on the first pass. I plan on playing more tonight--a great way to keep the tummy in check, too!

Nothing else to say, really... just chilling out at work, avoiding work. I'm here until 5:30, so off to the internet I go...

An Evil



Being online and seeing new anime and manga releases but being unable to download them because you're at work.

Torture!

Well, You Know, It's Work



And this is a free moment, so I'm writing.

Things are going pretty well here. The new computer registration system is up and the freshmen are piling in to use it. There's been bugs, to be sure, but on the whole it's working out well. Tomorrow is the first Transfer Conference, a monster of its own. I hope it goes as well as the Freshmen Conferences have been.

And even when there are no students here I'm kept busy--Pre-Health folders, Pre-Law Fair, random filing, random work (today stuffing and labeling 250 envelopes), and so on. And, of course, you have to take time out for lunch, e-mails, blogging...

You can make it a verb, right?

Yesterday I started driving myself to work, as Ariell finished her summer class here. The traffic isn't fun, but driving is. I cut an odd image, I think--a college student behind the wheel of a minivan by itself is semi-comical, but add to it the fact that the windows are rolled down and blasting Broadway tunes... yeah, I must draw some glances. If not glares.

Let me defend my Broadway, though--it's for the sake of Art! Art with a capital 'A'! Actually, it's for the sake of my acting, lowercase a. But my acting is for the sake of a grade of 'A'. Wait, it's not even that. It's for broadening my theatre (with an 're') knowledge so I can be cast in a production, hopefully to recieve a standing 'O'.

Wah, is this what work does to me? ~sigh~

I haven't been up to much, but that which I'm up to keeps me busy. Seeing where my prior prattle went, I think I'll leave it at that...

I Really Do Exist!



Hey there, everyone. I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog anymore, seeing that I haven't posted in months, but I'm back. ^_^ This summer I'm working in Advisement Services in school so I have regular internet access--I think I'd be dying otherwise. I can't download anime, though, so it does have its ups and downs.

A lot of things have happened since April 20th. I had more school, more classes. Lots of studying. I spent two weeks of my life engulfed in the school's production of Hair--more on that in a minute. I studied and stressed over finals. I said goodbye to one boyfriend and hello to another. I took the finals. I moved out of the dorm. And now I'm working. It never quite ends!

Hair was amazing. An incredible amount of fun. I wasn't on stage acting, though I wish I were. Nope, I was in the pit, playing percussion. I know, I wouldn't've thought it, either, but when the flute part for the entire play equals 16 bars you quickly explore other options. The cast was great, the pit people were even more wonderful, and we had a blast. I didn't get much sleep those two weeks, but it's all for the sake of Art with a capital "A", right?

Finals went okay... some were tougher than I thought, others were just as tough as I thought they would be.

So now I'm part of the working world. The real working world, the 40 hour a week kind. I'm a secretary for Advisement Services... but not quite. Lynn, the other secretary here, covers all the real stuff--the major typing, the administrative tasks. I, on the other hand, do minor secretarial things but also answer the phone. Both of us deal with students that walk in throughout the day. So I guess I'm a secretary/receptionist/front desk person. But really... it's only a name, right? -_^

Hopefully I'll be able to write more in the blog now that I'm online again.

Karla, returning from dropping off the face of the Earth, now reporting for duty...
