It is gorgeous outside. In the shade, anyway. I'm in the grass outside Schaeffer Hall on my lunch break right now, and despite the humidity, nasty allergies, and little bugs crawling on my laptop, it is beautiful. I really needed the relaxation. I mean, I have thirteen days to move out of my apartment and am facing a month of being unemployed. Its kind of scary. What I guess I will have to do is move in with the parentals for the first two or three weeks in August and commute back here to work. If David ends up getting a job any earlier in MN, though, I'll be on the schedule but with no way to get to work. Well, maybe that won't be a problem, though. Everypone at GAC is getting fewer hours than they like. If three shifts suddenly open up, I'm sure I'll have takers.

Anyway, Grandma is loaning us the money for a deposit on an apartment, and we're going up to Minnesota on Monday to look at it, and for David's interview. Maybe everything will be okay. But I don't know.
Okay, time to go inside. I have ants crawling all over me.

Still very tired and upset. My world is turned upside down. /me mourns for Denny. /me plots dastardly deeds. /me passes out... okay, not quite yet. But soon. I workerd another of those ten hour days again today- the thing where I work at the museum from 10 to 3, then go to the mall from 4 to 9:30. I am very. very. very. tired.
At least I got by bills paid, if a bit late. What's up with bills being due by 3pm? Oh well. I am, by the way, very happy with my new iTunes selections. I got some new stuff that David and I laugh at on the radio (like Temperature) and them some 90's stuff I forgot even existed (like ENVOGUE! Remember EnVogue?). Now I'm thinking about spending some of my own money on random songs by random artists. I also made a series of mix CDs to play at work entitled "CD of Utter Randomness" (v.1-5). They are hilariously random.

The opening was fabulous! I love my new job!

Yawwwwwwwn. Tired. Anyway, I'm at T-Spoons gearing up to go over to the Capitol. The ceremony starts at 9-ish and then the chaos will descend upon the interior at 10:30. I'm sipping cocoa with coconut and trying to wake up. I had to get up rather early to bath and groom, becasue there are certain to be cameras everywhere and I'm not about to end up on the front page of the DI or PC in with my hair in a stubby little ponytail. I just hope they don't end up needing me at the mall tonight. I'm going to be exhausted by the end of the day.
Updates later... If I stay awake long enough to type them.

I got those two papers done this morning, just in time. And I've made a little headway on the thesis. I went back and fixed a few little titchy stylistic things. Now I have to go back and back a few things up. The trouble is remembering where I got the idea in the first place. I have it all somewhere--just have to find it. I was going to have to do mega-research on the appearance of God in film on google tonight, but while doing it this afternoon, I happened to run across a book by two University of Arizona professors who back up the conclusions that I came to as a random observer of popular trends. So we'll be going with that. Hopefully, I'll have enough down time at the kiosk tonight to get that taken care of. I'll get up tomorrow and do my Greek, and the rest of the day will be relatively carefree. Tehen the Old Capitol opens up again on Saturday and I'll be helping with crowd control and such all day. But I love that kind of chaos. I won't have to give full tours becasue we'll have someone stationed in every room to explain the history because there will be too many people to run regular tours.

I love my new job! Everybody at Old Cap is super nice and nerdy like me! Finally, people who understand me!!!!! And it's so laid back. They told me this week to just wander in whever I got the time to get acclimated to the place and study the rooms. Tomorrow, I'm taking pictures. You see,I get to create my own tour spiel, I don't have to memorize a script or anything. So this should be really fun, and a great resume builder.

So tired... stayed up past midnight working on the thesis. I meant to work on it at work in the kiosk last night, but I ended up in the store instead and I actually had to work. Not the case tonight. I look forward to getting some homework done (maybe). In other random news... cramps suck, Coke in glass bottles rocks my world, and I found a great super-rich brownie recipie (think normal brownie batter, then saturate it with mini chocolate chips.
More inportanly, though< I decided not to graduate in May. Instead, I'm staying on for the summer so I can get work study and work part time at the Old Capitol Museum as a tour guide. And I can take French for Reading, which is also a good idea- if I get a B+, I get out of the translation exam. I am totally looking forward to a summer of museum, cookies, and (less happily) the Minnesota CNES reading list. Luckily, I am allowed to read some selections in English. I will probably leave those for last, except Petronius, who is awesome and whom I am now reading. And that's about it.

So I got a new job. Yes, another one. I'm going to give tours at the Old Capitol when it reopens, which I think is both a cool job and a good resume builder if I ever want to go for a museum job. The only thing is, unless I put off graduation until August and take a summer course so I can get more work study, I only get to keep the job through May 20. So I think I'm going to go ahead and do that so I can take French for reading. This way, I'll be building my resume AND getting my french requirement out ofthe way for grad school (if the course transfers and I get a B or better in it,I don't have to take the French translation exam at Minnesota!). And the other new job (cookies at the mall) is also great. I sit there for hours at the kiosk and do my homework, only occasionally waiting on customers. And they are thinking of training me to close the store and count money and all that good stuff, because I am neither untrustworthy nor an idiot (which they tell me some others have been). Whatever.
I finally feel like my life is going somewhere... even if somewhere means Minnesota. I'll finally be able to get on with what I really want to study. I'll have insurance, and liveable income, and a puppy. I can start my family, David can get a real job, and we can finally move on from our college-student-subsistence-lifestyle on to something (hopefully) better. I'm feeling pretty good.
