I’m gonna be diabetic by the end of the night. Halloween rocks.
I need to read about 300 pages today, so I can start my history paper tomorrow. So, I’m gonna shut the computer down until it’s done so I can focus. Wish me luck, guys.
- Mom: Your phone's ringing.
- Me: Yeah, I know. I've got it right here.
- Mom: Who is it?
- Me: Kelly.
- Mom: Who's that?
- Me: Someone from school who I've had a number of classes with.
- Mom: Oh. Well, why didn't you answer it?
- Me: Because, I don't want anymore human contact than is absolutely necessary today.
- Mom: Riiight. Ok...
The only drawback to getting a job and an internship at the same time is that until recently, I never had much to do and could afford to be lazy. Now, I’ve got a lot to do, so I’m exhausted by the time I get home. The Entertainment Council is having a series of small lunch time concerts this fall, so this morning I helped set up the portable stage and all the speakers, amps, etc. for that. Then, I realized I forgot to print a paper that was due today, so I ran home, proofread it, printed it, and grabbed some leftovers for lunch. Then, I ran back to school, helped dismantle the stage and cleanup after the show, went to a meeting for my internship, started working for my internship, went to a 3 hour class, and then came home. Since I’ve been home, I’ve drifted between dozing on the couch and working on my internship, simply because it’s the busiest day I’ve had in a long time. I’ve got 3 papers due before Wednesday, an application and personal statement to finish for a special filmmaking class, job training later this week, and more internship stuff. It’s gonna be a looong week, but I’m not complaining. I’m thrilled to be doing stuff I like while being productive, and I’m thankful to have a job. Life is looking up.
EDIT: Also, to all wishing me congrats on that last post, thanks!
Specifically, I’m the ASUCD Entertainment Council Cinema Coordinator Intern, as of today. I am on a roll!
