Well, I'm excited. (:
It isn't terribly impressive, but it does mark a first for me: I played a
part of a song entirely by ear.Admittedly, that part was the second half
of 'Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star' but hey, ya gots ta start somewhere, yo.
This is the first time I've ever played music without having anyone tell
me which notes to play. I'm excited.
The Breakfast Club
I got home from work at 3:30 in the morning, so of course I watched the
Breakfast Club. I really like that movie, although I don't think it's
terrbily good from a literary point of view. It makes me happy, though.
And I dearly love the 80's... from a safe position in the Future. I
wouldn't want to live there, of course.
Ally Sheedy was my favorite character. I'm not sure what that says about
Singing in the Rain
I just worked on the electrics crew for Singing in the Rain for ten hours,
without a break. It was surprisingly fun. Scott, Bob and I circuited and
troubleshot all of the instruments, and right around the point where we
were starting to get hungry Scott though that we were almost done, so we
just carried on. Five and a half hours later we finished. But it was a
good five and a half hours. And, of course, it was at $13 an hour. That
Whew. I got ten hours work at the Chicago Opera Theatre ($13 an hour --
woot!) today. It was kind of a freak chance, too -- I just happened to
remember that I had heard there might be overhire starting in March or
May... it turned out it was March.
And I got to meet a bunch of cool people, some of whom might even hire me
for more work. One guy, Scott, has already hired me to help him hang his
show this weekend. SAVED!!! Just in the nick of time.
Remind me to mention nard. Sometime when I'm feeling more boistrous. I
just realized that if I landed a job today and managed to earn $650
over the next two weeks, the paycheck would just barely clear before I had
to pay rent. I don't think I'll be getting a job today. I will apply at
the grocery store and at K-Mart, however, and if you know my previous
experiences with that then you may realize what a state I am currently in.
I decided not to go to juggling today, for reasons running from pathos (no
kidding, honestly, an extra $3 or $4 is I don't have correct change isn't
something I can afford) to pathos (and besides, I'd already left the house
Now I'm trying to gether my courage and figure out how to apply for a
teaching position at New Horizons. My main block here is that they aren't
Time to start drinking heavily.
I really, really want this job. Interning for a certification-training company,
the pay is $12 - $15 an hour. I suspect that you must be certified (a $1,500
course) in order to become an intern.
Anyway, I was really nervous so I wore the Conservative Navy Blazer and my Nice
Shoes. I knew I looked nice when a man stopped me on the way to the bus to ask
me if I was a lawyer.
