Trussed out because of stupid broads (and multicable)
What a day/night/morning/afternoon/evening.
It started innocently enough @ 6pm on Saturday -- the circus was back in town -- which is a HUGE deal to ISU -- and yours truely got to run projectors for it and tear it down. Doesn't sound too bad, right?
Before the show even starts, I see the 2 people on earth I would never want to see in a million years. They will remain nameless, but if you know me well enough, then you know who they are. They appear incredibly happy. I actually shed real tears over this sight. I'm not sure what was wrong with me -- it shouldn't have even been an issue. No matter how much I had prepared myself for that moment I knew would come someday, everything flew out the window and I felt like I was in high school again. I built a bridge and got over it -- I was fine by intermission.
Then the tear down began. If you know what multicable (HUGE cable) is or truss (the stuff you hang lights on) was basically my night. In the box, out of the box, horizontal, vertical....it was a crazy night of coiling this cable. There were about 30 cables all together - most of them were about 100ft. Once the truck was loaded and we got the broads (they're also a type of light we had to wheel across campus) back safely on Braden's dock, it was 8am. I went home and slept for 3 hours and then came back to run a lightboard for a dance show. The show went really well (light cues included, "This one needs to be swampy."). I would also like to thank the submasters who made my life so much easier. I was awake by the Grace of God. I slept from 730pm to 5am and my sleeping patterns have been FUBAR since then.
I have to memorize 25 pictures of fungus with their scientific names for an exam. Isn't that silly?
I have 2 weeks left of school and then I gradumacate. Hard to believe, huh? I'm ready for all this stress to be over with and longing for some relaxation from school. Still working on the job thing......but I have prospects now!
No matter what, sometimes an unexpected phone call can brighten someone's day and soften the blow....thank you.
If worse comes to worse, bring up the lekowash @ lvl 2 and everything will be okay.
Oh yeah, and Laura is awesome.
