Dorm Life

Well, starting today I’m officially living at school. I’ve almost finished getting my room set up and school is about a week away. I brought =A LOT= less stuff with me than I normally do. The room looks a little bare, but I guess I’ll just have to live with it. I hope to be more social this year. I feel like my first year here was spent being more extroverted than introverted. I guess it was difficult last year, though. A lot of the people I met moved away or we had a sort of falling out. Hopefully I’ll manage to meet a lot of fun people this year and have some fun parties and just be more extroverted. After all, this is my last year of college (with any luck) and I should make it the best.

As a sort of forewarning, I’m going to be busy all day for the next six days, so if I don’t blog, fear not, I shall return!

This Tastes Fishy…

So, I just came back from my first trip to Red Lobster and I must say the food was fantastic. Not to mention filling. Ugh, I am so full! Knowing me, however, I’m sure I’ll just be hungry again in an hour.

Scrambled Holiday

Have you ever noticed that when you’re on holiday, the days seems to go by at an alarmingly fast rate? Morah and I are in Clarkston for a couple of days before we have to go back to school and I can’t believe how fast the first day seems to have gone by. We’ve still got all day today, but we’re probably going to head out first thing tomorrow to move Morah into the dorms, so we won’t be doing anything vacation-like. This past the Thursday (What day was that? 12 September, I guess) was my last day of work at KREM for the summer. Granted, it wasn’t a big huge deal and no one made a big huge deal about it, but I think at least a few people are going to be sad to see me go. I know I’m sad to leave. I wish I had a better car to drive and a schedule that would allow me to stay on there. Alas, I do not. Ergo, I will go back to school and work there.

Did I mention what I’m doing at school for work this year? I don’t think I did. This summer I cut together a promo and a PSA (Public Service Announcement) for our school’s radio station KEWU. The person working as interim program director liked them so much that she offered me a position as PSA Director, which I gladly accepted. So now I get not only a key to the building, but a key to the radio office as well. Moreover, I get a desk with a phone and the only typewriter in the radio deptartment (not that it really matters, but I have to make the list of perks long so that I can say there are a lot of perks). What else? I guess it’s mostly just added responsibility as well as greater creative freedom. I’m not quite sure what being PSA Director entails, but I’ll find all that out when I go in for my first day of work. It’s going to be quite a lot of fun, I’m sure. Plus it’ll get me more hours of work than if I were just a DJ at the station, which, by the way, I will continue to do. So that’s a whole lotta hours, which translates into a whole lotta money.

What’s that I hear? It sounds like eggs being scrambled! Okay, I don’t really hear anything except Morah’s bird, but I know that eggs are being scrambled in another part of the house and that some are being scrambled for me. So off I go.

Hey look! I still have a blog!

It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’ve been so busy lately with work and other projects that I haven’t had time to blog. I’m going to stay busy, too. Today I have to go into Cheney, then come home and edit photos until I have to meet my mom and sister at the chiropractor’s office at 6p, then I’ll have to work at 9:30p and won’t get home until about midnight, at which point I’m sure I’ll want to sleep. Tomorrow isn’t much better, I’ve got to edit photos for my sister’s yearbook photo until I have to go to work (I think that’s all I have tomorrow). I’m doing touch-ups on the photos so that they’re perfect. One photo can take a few minutes, or a few hours depending on what needs to be done. Wednesday I have to shoot my documentary until 3p, at which point I have to meet with my insurance agent to try and reduce my car insurance. Thursday is the clearest day on schedule so far; all I have to do is work (my last day at KREM!). Friday Morah and I are leaving for Clarkston and we’ll probably come back Saturday night or Sunday morning. Sunday we move Morah into the dorm. I don’t think I have anything on Monday, but who knows. Tuesday I move into the dorm, then I’ll be busy with new student orientation (I’m an orientation team leader, we lead the orientation leaders) until school starts. So it’ll be a hectic couple of weeks, but I’ll try to hang in there and maybe I’ll get a chance to blog about something. Who knows?
