So I just made the phone call to the theater formally accepting the position in the internship program.
So that makes it real.
And exciting and terrifying all at once.
I’ve been on craigslist every five minutes looking at sublets but since I know practically nothing about Seattle I’m forced to keep google maps open in another tab, frantically copy and pasting addresses in trying to figure out commute times. And it dawns on me that this is like..real life. As in, going to be an adult and live by myself and I can’t just drive home if I need to or I want to. BAH.
Everyone keeps saying “hope you like the rain!” as if this is a bad thing.
Those who truly know me probably realize the idea of a summer without much sun
(though whether or not the rainy thing is just a myth who knows) is my idea of a dream! My pale skin rejoices, my sensitive eyes peek out from behind their sunglasses!
I will say that whenever I tell someone I’m going to Seattle they always say “OH MAN I LOVE SEATTLE!” or “Seattle’s supposed to be awesome!” or “Omg Grey’s Anatomy!! Omg Starbucks!” which is encouraging.
Hopefully soon I’ll get my assignments and schedule for the summer. The theater has the most intense summer program for kids I’ve ever seen and my job (or jobs) could vary between 7 or 8 positions. I’m a little terrified I’ll be in charge of assistant teaching Improv class or something (I sheepishly admitted my ineptitude when it comes to improv in my interview and they responded something about challenging the interns etc….meep.) But no matter what I’m just pumped to have this chance at an adventure. To have something to do post grad (that actually freaking applies to my major omg holy crap etc) To try new things and hopefully not die! (WOOOO)
I have to say, I feel like I may be a little psychic because I definitely picked an interesting year to do this whole torture strangers and family and friends by blogging my life daily for one year thing.
Gotta keep the good content coming!!
