A bit of an update...

Okay, so I haven't been the best about keeping my blog very active. In my defense, my life is incredibly busy right now. Let me give you a bit of a rundown of what's been going on.

First. I am graduating in December. I am taking summer semester right now, at the end of August I will start my last semester ever of my undergrad. WOOHOO! I have 140 days until graduation. Yes, I am counting down. I have a countdown widget on my phone.

I am working (mostly) full time. When I say mostly it's because I'm one of those lucky government employees who are being furloughed. Happy happy joy joy...

I am also working as the Stage Manager for a musical. Anne of Green Gables! Which is great fun, really. I'm working with a couple of relatives (cousin for a director, another cousin as a light/stage designer). I also get to do things that one might not normally think of for a play. Such as learning about maypoles and teaching a bunch of kids how to use one. (It's going to be AMAZING).  It also means that I have rehearsal every day, so when someone asks me to go do something...

I also just got back from San Diego Comic Con. Which was amazing and completely exhausting. I mean, 130,000+ people? I camped out over night in order to get into one of the biggest panels in Hall H. My friend and I got in line at 10:30pm the night before, the panel started at 10am. The line was already a mile long! I'm pretty sure I had to turn in my sanity for that week. I spent most of my time there completely fangirling over practically everything. I walked into a panel only to see Steven Yeun (Glenn from The Walking Dead) Kit Harington (Jon Snow from Game of Thrones) and Matt Smith (11th Doctor from Doctor Who). I about died. Glenn, Jon Snow and The Doctor all sitting next to each other???! It's probably a good thing no one took video of me during Comic Con, it might have just been too embarrassing.

Oh, and for you Doctor Who fans out there... The preview they showed for the 50th anniversary special????

Basically, prepare to freak out. I barely remember half of what the diologue was because I was too busy screaming along with the entirety of Hall H.
Also, today is my birthday (yay!) so things are even more crazy. I mean, look at what I woke up to find in my car!

So those are some of the reasons I haven't been too active. Hopefully I'll do better!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. AAAH! I missed your birthday :(
    But HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! It's only over for about 6 hours where you live, so it's kinda like it's still going on? No?
    Anyway, I hope you had an amazing day and LOVE what they did to your car!!
