fingersfranklin asked: When are you going to Disney?! A bunch of us are goin from the 15th to the 21st! We should meet up.
Well shit - wouldn’t you know we are getting there on the 22nd! Just missing all you crazy kids. That’s ok…that would probably be too much for Disney to handle if we were all there at the same time. ;)
Bacon Roses i Flowers make a nice gift to the friend that needs a smile or for that special someone in your life. Roses are even better. But sometimes even roses don’t cut it. Sometimes you need something a little more non-cliché, something…extraordinary… Sometimes, you need BACON.
If one more person asks what I’m doing after graduation, I will get violent. I know, I know. People are genuinely curious about graduates’ lives, but come on, that is the worst question to answer time and time again as a graduate.
But I’ll answer it, just this once, for all you Tumblesbians. Starting in August, I will be serving as the Executive Director of the Tallahassee Community Chorus. I’ll be Dr. Andre Thomas’ right-hand lady, as he serves as the Artistic Director. Pretty freaking stoked, actually. I’ll be working with a hard-working Board of Directors that will do anything for the Chorus, an internationally renowned Artistic Director, and talented singers and students in the Tallahassee community. The artistic product is wonderful (selling out every show this season), so I don’t have to create smoke and mirrors to hide a low-budget operation. Not bad for my first job out of the gate.
One drawback - this job is only part-time (but still pays more than I make as a measly Grad Assistant). I’m also looking for something full-time to help pay the billz while Ashley finishes school, but I think I shall take a couple months off before I start the job hunt. I need a month or two to unwind after 19 years of school.
Graduation in 20 days = ability to read for pleasure returns.
This will be my first read. Oh God, I can’t wait.
A snippet: “Maybe you bought this book because you love Sarah Palin and you want to find reasons to hate me. We’ve got that! I use all kinds of elitist words like “impervious” and “torpor,” and I think gay people are just as good at watching their kids play hockey as straight people.”
