I am having a hard time getting started on these papers for some reason. One is for Organized Communication and the other is for Astrobiology, both subjects I am enjoying. It’s time to just buckle down and churn them out. Just need to finish the day’s first cup of coffee as I poke around online and play a bit while waking up.
Yesterday was fantastic. queenmidalah echolegacy and I picked up leilana_cuspa on the way and met Katie at Liberty Lake for NJ Ren Faire auditions. It’s always great spending time with those ladies (okay, goofing off with those ladies!). I’m not quite sure how my audition went. Only my second one, so I don’t have much to compare it to! The improv portion was fun, but I’m not real thrilled with how I did during the “bus stop” bit. Everyone was terrific and friendly and full of energy, which made the day fly by.
Since things were done earlier than we expected, leilana_cuspa and Katie took off for King of Prussia mall. We had about an hour to kill before Rosalie’s birthday dinner at the Melting Pot, so we were all going to do some shopping. The rest of us were going to meet them there, but a really bad accident on 76 had us getting to the restaurant with a whole 5 minutes to spare.
Dinner was awesome: great food, great conversation, and great company. We’ll do it again next year and buy my daughter a celebratory 21st birthday drink, even ;)
On the career front: last week I was challenged to consider what I really wanted to do with my career. I’ve spent the past week thinking about where I want to go, what I want to do, and where I want to be 5, 10, and 20 years down the road. Management, certainly, or the degree I’m working towards makes no sense. Possibly project management, but I don’t know yet. I love gathering data and finding the answers, but I also had to admit to getting a thrill out of putting out “fires” and fixing things that have gone awry (as long as I didn’t set them awry to begin with!) .
But what I really love is getting up in front of a group of people and presenting. I love the energy you can get from an engaged audience. It’s exciting for me. Maybe that’s why I’m so very looking forward to hopefully being cast for the faires this year. I love the faire and I love engaging an audience. Combine the two, and you have a very happy masteralida
Rambled enough for the morning. Now it’s time to stop procrastinating and get these papers out!
