Sorry for the silence!

Long story short, Alpha Chi was a nightmare, so I am currently bouncing between housing situations. I'm currently home for the night. Tomorrow night/maybe sometime Monday I will be moving into a double room with an International student from Japan. I don't know if I'll be with her all semester or if I'll be able to get a single room soon. I'm going to call Housing services tomorrow and ask them a few questions, hopefully I'll remember to ask about that.

ALSO I got a job at the WU mail center! It's just 5 hours a week right now, from 8-9am in the morning Mon-Fri no less. But it's just sorting packages, so it shouldn't be that insane, and I will get money for it! I like money. Haha.

Susan Coromel seems really nice from the thirty minutes I spent talking to her yesterday, as do the rest of the theatre folks I met, which was about 5 people for about 2 minutes. But still, that's good.

In more sobering news I auditioned for women's choir at university today and ended up crying during the audition because I was sick and couldn't sightread well as a result. I hate singing while sick... she did say I "sang well for being sick" though, so I'm still optimistic. Especially since my impression is that the choir I was auditioning for is the easiest to get into.

Monday at noon I have auditions for Antigone. I should really be memorizing and perfecting that monologue... meh, I'll work on it tomorrow. It's really short anyway, I have like half of it memorized already. I'm more worried about getting better before then, since I do have to sing for the audition, and I'd prefer not to bawl in front of a prospective director.

Next weekend is Kumoricon! Today I got my Meryl cape in the mail from Alina -- it looks GLORIOUS. I think this may be the key to actually wearing my Meryl cosplay. I plan to wear it to Kumoricon on the first day. If I have time tomorrow I might see if I can find all of the parts and see how it all looks, maybe take some pictures. We shall see. For now, here is my...

Kumoricon Planning!

Luckily not much is happening in the world during this hectic time. No fabulous TV-only shows like SYTYCD. Ted Kennedy did die, though. Poor guy. Cancer sucks, man.

EDIT: So if I do end up taking Intermediate Japanese that means I won't be able to be in Voce Femminile anyway. Sooo there goes that worry. Hopefully I'll get into Antigone though so I can keep up my singing and such.
