Oh. My. Goodness. As the title implies there’s been quite a few changes in my life recently.
Sorry it seems like I abandoned ship. I didn’t. But guys…I moved. If you remember, I had already moved back to Fairmont earlier this year. I was pretty content. Working at Colasessano’s, a pizza place, and taking two classes at Fairmont State. I was actually doing pretty well, probably better with my classes than I had when I was there before…oops…
I kept getting SETC’s e-mails for new job postings and one came up for a costume internship at Playhouse on the Square. No big, I’d already applied and gotten shot down a few times this year, from internships and one real sweet Americorps gig, but this was my #1 choice theatre at SETC…so I had to panic and rush around to rewrite/piece together a new cover letter and resume. Well it worked!
I GOT HIRED!
Then the fun part came, and I had roughly 2.5 weeks to get my life in order. I somehow, with the help of my parents and my fella, got my apt sorted/packed/and put in storage. It was crazy! Sidenote, I have waaaaaaaay too much stuff, but we’ll talk about that later. My fella, Anthony, and I loaded my car up and I embarked on a 2 day trip to Memphis, Tennessee. I broke the 12 hour drive up by stopping in Lexington, Kentucky. I have a cousin who lives there, as well as a college friend who works for the children’s theatre.
So, I’ve been living in Memphis for about a month…why not post sooner? Well the answer is my computer died…kaput, no green light, nothing. It lasted me almost 6 years before kicking the bucket, so I am very grateful for it. But Kelly, how are you typing this…?
I GOT A NEW COMPUTER, YA’LL!!!
It is so very pretty and shiny, and a pretty early Christmas present from my parents. Yay! Thanks Mom and Dad!
So long story short, I have relocated farther south and I’m enjoying it so far. We got our first dusting of snow this morning, which is apparently quite uncommon, but I found it reassuring. This is a real brief summary of my life the last couple of months, hopefully I’ll settle into a new rhythm soon.
