School

Houston, no go for launch

Well, I got an answer back from my potential prom date, no go. But I’m not out for the count. While majorly disappointed and slightly depressed, I will be back…as soon as I figure out who I’m going to ask next.

In other news, some of my relatives flew out to Seattle on Sunday. Rehearsals continue for How to, although they are more like choreographed dance routines rather than play rehearsals. I picked up some new computer stuff on Wednesday. And tomorrow I fly out to California to go backpacking. I will not be able to update for about 15 days starting tomorrow, so that’s where I’ll be.

And the fun keeps on coming

The end of another really hectic week is just about over. We’ve been practicing How to for two entire weeks now and one thing is really clear: this is not like The Sound of Music in any way. The Sound of Music was musical about music with music in it. How to is a funny play with music and dancing added to it. Most people in the musical have singing experience, myself included. However, I would venture to say that most people don’t have dancing experience. Therefore, we’ve been working a lot on dance routines and it’s really been exhausting…but fun.

I also went to the REI garage sale today and got bunches and bunches of stuff. I got a pair of $100 UGG Austrailia Mocisons for $5, some Smith Sunglasses, a fleece coat, and some other good stuff. I’ve also given up on the project to update you of my location via cell phone for the time being. I’m having a hard time getting data from the cell phone to the computer reliably.

Sleepless in Seattle

I’ve been having trouble sleeping the last week. I’m not quite sure why, but I have been stressed out a little. In just about a week, I’ll be on my way to California and then TJ, Mexico for a 17 day combined trip. I’m going to bring my GPS with me and I’m going to email my coordinates back to the server. The server will then post an autolog about my position, how far I’ve travelled, and perhaps even a satellite picture of my position.

I finally worked up the nerve to ask the girl out to prom. She didn’t say yes, but she didn’t say no either. However, the important thing is that I did ask. I hope to have this concluded before I leave for Canyonlands, but if it’s not, that’s fine too.

I feel much better now. I should get lots of sleep tonight.

Cold feet

Can you believe that Merriam Webster actually has a defination for “cold feet“?

Apprehension or doubt strong enough to prevent a planned course of action

And that pretty much what happened today with regards for asking someone to prom today. More specificly, the apprehension part. I’m going to wear so warmer socks and try again tomorrow. It’s all about the timing…it really is.

The end of a very hectic week…and the beginning of another

Last week was very hectic. I started my third and final trimester, I began rehersal for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and sometime mid week I announced I was going to Prom. On Thursday, we blocked the first part of How to, the overture to be percise. Suficive to say, it’s very entertaining. Everybody should purchase tickets now before they sell out, which they almost always do a week or so before the performance. On Friday I helped setup for my school auction. While setting up some lights, I strained a muscle in my back. That left me moaning in pain for a better part of the weekend. However, I am happy to report that I am feeling much now. Saturday afternoon I saw The Passion. I’m not quite sure what to say about it, however, it has given me a lot to chew on, which is always a good thing. And just tonight, I figured out who I’m going to take to Prom. I’m not going to say who, but no one ever going to guess who it is, except maybe Hanway. I’m going to ask her tomorrow…

Three Down, Two To Go

The outside of the large white envelope certainly didn’t hide anything:

Congradulations…You’re CU-Boulder bound!

We’ll see about that. Never-the-less, University of Colorado @ Boulder has offered me admission into their College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. They even sent me a certificate to frame and put on the wall. How cool! The admission is, of course, conditional; “contingent upon all final credentials reflecting academic achievement similar to our assessment at the time of admission.” The only schools that I have not heard back from are Caltech and Johns Hopkins.

The Begining of the Begining of the End…or something like that

My first week of classes for the 3rd and final trimester is almost done. My classes are pretty good: Physics, Life after SAAS, Study, Page to Stage/Senior Project (English), Lunch, Ballet, Calc II, and American Government. Usually at about this time on Friday, I’m really ready for the week to be over. But it really feels like the week is only half over. All the better I suppose. I still haven’t decided on a college yet, but most of you should be able to surmise that CSM is going to be the place to be…however, that is in no way final. I have decided to go to prom. I’m not sure who it’s going to be with, seeing as I have no current girlfriend. Quinn, Peter, Ben, et al. have put together a list of potential candiates.
