Wow, how time flies...

After lent was over, it was weird for me being online.  It was like that I add nothing really to do, but I did not feel right going on Facebook.  Then, my next show started at school and I saw myself more and more not even turning on my computer except to draw blueprints for my show and writing essays.  Today, the first day of some type of freedom I've had to freely play online, I did not know what to do.  I went onto my Facebook account and as I was scrolling down, I saw the link for my blogger, and well here I am.


I had a b-day party for myself.  I have some close friends over for a Greek themed dinner party.  I would have to say I spoiled my friends.  I am glad that I have them in my life because I do not know what I would do without some of them;  you are really my family away from home.  At the end of the month, it was not as good as the beginning.  I was hit by a car while riding my bike home.  The ready sad part is that I was only 3 blocks away from my house.  :-(  Fortunately, I did not have anything break, except my wallet.  I am trying to get his insurance company to pay for everything, I hope that is something that is going to get settled soon so that I can get caught up on my bills.

Spring Break

I went to Catalina with some friends from school to study the book of Mark.  That was the best time I have had in a long time.  At first when my friends were trying to sell me on the idea, I was thinking why would I want to studying for 10 hrs a day during my spring break, but then I started thinking why would I not want to?  It was a bit hard on me because I ended up catching a cold from when I was in the emergency room and having to walk around the island (since I had been hit 3 days earlier by a car).  I tried to play things safe, but during our free time there were so many things I wanted to do and then my active side came and said just take your meds and play with everyone else.  I was able to go canoeing, snorkeling, and fishing.  I was the only person to bring fishing gear, so I was able to take so college kids out fishing for their first time.  We caught a couple of halibut; it was very exciting.


My show started up and had to deal with the crazy's again.  But, though I might bump heads with other designers, it is all about the finished product, and that is why I am still in the biz.  My crew is wonderful and they are all working so hard.  They make me proud about everything I built and the way I have taught them (because they are doing so well).  

I have been able to start working again and my leg does not hurt that bad anymore, but now again it tries to hold me down.  lol  It looks like that I am not heading out for any internship.  It is okay, maybe next summer, since I am going to be graduating and will be done with school.  I will be lighting shows in the area and LA, which will still be a great thing to toss on the resume.  

In two weeks, I will be able to put another semester behind me and start the count down till  graduation.  :-)

HEY!! When is the last time you checked this?? I changed my Blog address (URL)!!! It no longer has my last name in it! Erase the old because it no longer exists and copy the new!

Tina: I guess the answer would be never. haha But I will be now, and I have your new address.

Megan and Amber: I ended up being fine. Thank you very much. The only thing that sucks now is I still have a soft spot on my calf (scar tissue) and when it is really cold, it starts to hard really bad. Maybe one day it will heal.
