I got the scholarship to the Carolina's Youth Leadership Conference and the HRC Gala.
And I am more excited than any amount of exclamation points could express.
Now I have to find something to wear...
The invitation says the conference is casual but the Gala is festive/black tie.
So do I need a suit? Or khakis and a shirt and tie?
Gack. I'm bad at this stuff.
I will most definately be asking Laura.
Started the new job today and as a result have many fresh paper cuts.
I guess that's what I get for handling files.
It's a really good job and really quite easy.
Somewhat tedious, but it pays well.
So I don't mind.
I think I may go to bed soon.
I seriously had the best weekend ever.
I spent all of it with Laura, just chilling.
Last night we went to this little vintage shop where she volunteers in Charlotte called Century Vintage and watched this old movie with Mick Jagger in it.
I forgot how sexy he was.
That store is also a YAY.
So much awesome stuff everywhere.
And they show these awesome movies in the back upon occassion and call it the Patchwerk Playhaus.
All the people are Bohemian and awesome.
I'm so impressed.
I start my new job tomorrow.
I've listened to the Sweeney Todd soundtrack at least forty times today.
I don't know.
I think I'm going on a Sondheim trip again, where I listen to his music for days on end and my writing becomes really thick and wordy.
And I have a paper due too.
Social Committee meeting tomorrow with PRIDE.
This is a YAY.
We're having a ball.
And somehow, I got involved.
It means an hour less of Intro to Ed.
I finally found a label for the degree I'll be getting.
So now instead of calling it the "Dabbling Bachelor's degree" or "that damn peice of paper" I can officially call it a Bachelor's of Social Work.
Job starts Monday with the incredibly smiley Donna Mack, who seems downright awesome.
Hopefully seeing Laura this weekend.
Also of the YAY.
I am now going to go take a shower and sleep.
And stop listening to Sweeney Todd.
I swear I'm going to start quoting Sondheim in my sleep.
Something tells me that that would be creepy.
Can you imagine?
You hear someone talking and as you get closer you notice that their asleep and all of a sudden they start going, "Give me your bleeders..." or singing about making human meat pies.
I'd probably cry.
Tomorrow is going to be WAY too fucking busy.
Somehow I have to be in Terri's office by 10am for a fifty minute session but also be at a meeting with my English professor about the content of the paper I'm currently working on at 10.30.
And I have Psych at 11.
Fortunately, MusicApp isn't until 3.30.
Valentine's Day is February 14th.
Usually not a day I spend doing anything special.
But not this year.
I am doting on my significant other.
I haven't had the chance to do this in a long ass time so I'm really looking forward to it.
I want to say Laura occassionally reads this...
I need to write the rough draft of my paper sometime between now and midnight so I actually have something to discuss when I meet with Prof. Wilson tomorrow.
I just hope my first line grabs her attention.
And is appropriate.
She did say to write something that makes the reader want to continue reading.
I figured a mention of genitals might do the trick...
Heath Ledger is gone.
He'll be sorely missed.
He was an amazing actor.
I have a new friend living on my window sill.
His name is Charlay.
And he's a goose.
I have no idea why he's here.
He missed Florida by a long shot.
And no matter what I do, he won't go away.
He woke me up this morning.
I need to find my camera so I can take a picture.
I had the BEST WEEKEND EVER.
I'll spare you the details.
And I don't feel like singing tonight
All the same songs...
I feel so down.
I have a class at 12:30 and as much as I try to force myself to get ready and look over the course materials, I know I'm not going.
I've been in this funk for the past week or so.
And I really need to suck it up and get out of it.
I'm tired of being tired all the time.
Last night I sat down and wrote out everything that's been bugging me.
I feel slightly better.
But not by much.
I have no idea what to do.
It snowed for the first time in forever.
I'm pretty sure that the apocalypse is on its way in.
What else could possibly explain snow in Charlotte?
At least it gave me a chance to finish all my homework and do some catching up on sleep.
There was no reason for them to cancel classes but they did.
And it was fine by me.
I haven't gotten that much sleep in a long time.
So how's everyone else?
