Hey, at least the gap wasn't a year this time. I have the unpleasant timing of attempting an update of this journal right before bed. Me so tired. Still, here I am, and like the little choo choo that could, I suspect I can too.
Halloween Horror Nights is back. 3rd year in a row, and well, it's not like the first year. We'll see... I can remember my first time stepping onto the porch of the Bates house... Rocked my world. Now, it's familiar. I know it. In a truly deranged realization, it feels a bit more like home this round. Good to be back with friends. Want more, of course, but for now, this is good and I still can't believe I get paid to do it.
I'm @ The Groundlings over 10 hours a week right now. A little insane, seeing as I defiantly do not get paid for this. Quite the contrary, actually. It is, however, amazing stuff. I've been in classes with Mindy Sterling (Frou from Austin Powers) and she'll be directing my improv buddies and I in a show this Sunday. 5 years ago, I would have been like WHATTT?!?!?!
I might be getting called for Advanced in January. We'll see... When that starts, it doesn't stops... A bit like a water slide, and let's just hope there is a refreshing pool of water at the end of this one, and not asphalt. ;)
School, full time right now. 12 units. I'm on it!!!
There is a ... that I think is... and don't want to overthink it cause... is pretty...
I have good friends. A nice home, albeit an often dirty one (katie). A good life.
I'm actually very much looking forward to Grinchmas this year... Looking at some photos from last year, I'd forgotten what fun it was.
Some of my friends are movie stars. A surreal thought, but every time I see a peer achieve something, it only confirms that I'm in the right place. Rewards come in all shapes and sizes.
About a week ago, I got a fortune cookie. It said, "Your dearest dream will come true." I only write this because, if you knew my history with fortune cookies, you'd know that I'm more accustomed to "You are a nice person." or "Remember to smile." or "You are alive." ... Needless to say, I kept this one, and it resides safely inside my bug wallet. You heard me. My BUG wallet.
Sleep now. Chris tired.
