Lights, Biochem, Action!
You know you've out of it when you find yourself sitting on the living room couch on a Sunday afternoon with a biochemistry book on your lap, unshowered, while mindlessly watching NASCAR on TV. (I'd just like to state, for the record, that I HATE NASCAR and could care less about "300 miles of left.") Nonetheless, that is where I found myself today.
I've gotten to the point where I want to do something, but I don't want to do anything. I think I'm so used to running around like a chicken with my head chopped off and all the stress, that when it's finally gone, I'm at a loss of what to do. Free time? What is that? My scientific mind can't handle this, so break out the biochemistry and attempt to finish all my assignments. But its not all bad -- I like androgens :).
The leitmotif of the week is technical theatre. I got to work a sorority/frat dance concert and the programming decided during the second act of the show that it wasn't going to cooperate and basically went haywire. I can run boards, but I can't program them without a lot of time - not something you can do when there are 3,000 people sitting there waiting for you to find the "Go To Cue" button. But that's what happened. Luckily, a friend and the tech director were there to drag me out of the proverbial parcan. It was a wild ride and my body still has the adrenaline flowing through it from the whole ordeal. But once that "glitch" was fixed, the rest was basically smooth sailing. It just took forever to take down -- but I was home by 2am.
Tomorrow I'm working all day, all night, and part of early Tuesday morning. Yay for Broadway plays.
The job search continues.....right now I'm applying to the Chicagoland area and Florida's east coast, most notably the St. Augustine/Ormond Beach region and even Orlando and down by Ft. Lauderdale. The midwest has always been home to me but I'm ready to try something different, even if its just for a little while. Florida is not only radically different, but its cheap to live down there and there are BEACHES! I have not been to the beach enough in the past few years. I haven't heard from anywhere yet that looks promising. Whether I'll make it down there or not has yet to be determined.....
There is way too much homework that I really should be doing. I just want the exams and homework to be over.
I have nothing else to do, so I'm gonna finish the biochem.
I have this feeling that is gonna be a long week. Bring it on.
