holy crap. things keep getting busier and harder.
friday. thanks to laura, i got to see nathan gunn's concert for free! woot! he was amazing. and i got his autograph afterwards and i chatted w/ him about william (bill) burden from glimmerglass. apparently, him and bill go way back and nathan knew all about bill in death in venice and that he's been to glimmerglass before. and then i talked to his wife about john musto (who wrote a piece that he didn't sing) cuz he's amy burton's husband and we met e/o at glimmerglass of course and julie gunn asked if i knew so and so but i didn't but still, i loved being able to relate to glimmerglass opera! it makes me miss the summer so bad. anyway....
open house saturday morning. it was rough getting up at 7:30am on a saturday. i had a good time though. it was my very first tour every and it happens to be a group of 10 ppl. i was extremely nervous the first half but got more comfortable as i went along. tom, one of the admin bosses, said i got a compliment from one of the rents so that made me feel good. i was worried i was too boring. i talked a lot about food and crane. lol. i'm such a dork. but i felt so important and helpful. i got a nice name tag! and got served good food and heard the pointercounts sing. i was a lot more comfortable talking one on one w/ families. i had such great ones when i escorted one to lunch and sat with another. talked a lot about crane so i was rather peppy about that but i loved the one i was sitting with at lunch. i hope i made a good impression. it was even more intimidating at first cuz we had to mingle during registration. that meant going up to complete strangers and striking a convo. one family was from around cooperstown so i ranted and raved about glimmerglass opera and the lake, of course!
dumb ass me took a 3 hr nap! so obviously i didn't get any of the work i wanted to get done and put it off even further by going to the first hockey game of the season vs. geneseo but it was well worth it! one of the best games i've been to! so exciting and exilirating! we were tied and had to go into sudden death OT AND a shootout! it was a mighty ducks moment! we were even quacking! lol. and we won it too!
so sunday comes along and i still have work to do but what do i do? sleep in some more. i'm such a procrastinator! it totally forgot about the orchestra concert tonight and made my small group reschedule cuz i've never missed an orchestra concert before and just couldn't bare to miss it. but everything worked out but i still have to do what? work. work. work
gotta work on intercultural take home exam, study for small group exam,prepare for small group presentation, study for visual comm midterm, and the list goes on and on and of course everything is happening on one day! bloody hell!is the semester over yet!
as for other things? meh. i constantly feel left out somehow. or feel like the third wheel. or feel like i don't belong. but i especially feel lonely. and why the hell do i always attrack the weird ones on myspace?! oh well. just trying to get through the next few weeks. and i always feel exhausted.make it stop eh?!
