Too Much Sleep is Never Enough.

2012...  I'm not so sure about you...

So far this year (and we're only a month in) I've done some cool things and had some odd things happen.  For instance, both Guac and Bambi have contacted me because they had to tell me they missed me.  Nothing changed as a result of their admitting that, but it was odd and unexpected. 

I went to Yosemite for the first time, which wasn't even an idea until right around the first of the year.  The trip was rapidly planned and over even more quickly.  But worth it. 

I got my yoni waxed for the first time ever.  And, as Oose pointed it, since the woman who did our waxing recently did Patrick Dempsey's makeup for something, his face now has one degree of separation from our vaginas. 

I quit my job and began working less than part time for the first time in four and a half years.  Less than 40 hours for the first time in two.  I felt for a while as though I was lost and a little useless.  Four days into the semester I am thankful I did what I felt I had to because my course load this semester is crazy.  I would be super stressed out and not eating already. 

Then again, I might not be able to eat by the end of the semester because I won't have the money to be able to afford food.

Oh, and I was in an opera.  The first time in I-don't-know-how-long that I wasn't a lead, so that was weird.  Usually I've been able to find some way to get out of being in the chorus.  But that's over now.

I need to figure out what I'm going to do with my summer; my voice teacher is really recommending that I do a summer program.  I'm just super concerned with my financial situation.  I may have to acquire a part-time job before the end of the semester. 

Sigh.  I don't want to work retail again. 

Seriously, where is my sugar daddy already?!


  1. My voice teacher is teaching three summer workshops this summer; one in San Francisco and two in Italy. I'm just as iffy as you are on being able to attend one, but it wouldn't hurt to apply anyway, you might be able to get a scholarship/sponsorship.

  2. You were in a opera? I think that's pretty darn awesome. I wanna see you sing! YOU TUBE IT!

  3. @Tiffany-- You're in Robin's studio, right? I wish I could do an out-of-the-country program. But I might not be able to do one at all. I even had to opt out of our choir trip to New York because there's no way I'll be able to afford it since I had to quit my job. :(

    @Patty-- Yes! I've been in a few operas, but this was my first semi-professional show. It was only chorus, but I have to start somewhere. Hopefully I get to do something next year. There is a video of me in a production I did at Shasta College last year on YouTube, but I sounds so different now I'm not sure I want to give you the link lol.

    It never fails to surprise me how often people think it's awesome I sing opera and want to hear me sing. Every time I expect the response of, "well, that's weird."
