So, my life has belonged to a show called Familia, Food and Fiesta at Miracle Theatre (insert shameless plug here) for the past six weeks. I've been stage managing, and running lights for this show. I've never done anything like that before - my backstage work has all been strictly makeup design, nothing else. So it's been a bit of a learning experience, and I still feel like I don't really know what I'm doing, I'm just sort of faking it.

Well, apparently I'm faking it pretty well, because I got offered (albeit unofficially so far) a job there next season. When I told the woman making this offer that I was going to be a senior in college next season, she responded with "OK, I want to work around that." They really like me at this theatre, and the way I work, and they want me to stay on, it seems.

People make their livings working at this theatre. In theory, if all goes well, I could actually have a job that incorporates my entire major, combining the two things that I've been wanting to spend my life working on as it is. This isn't supposed to happen so soon. The only thing that's throwing me right now is the work that would need to be done next year, while I'm trying to thesis. It's taken a great deal of effort to stay on top of everything this semester with this show - it'd be a matter of deciding whether or not it's worth it to me to go through that effort again, with the possibility of a job guaranteed after I graduate.

So many things to think about...like the fact that they really seem to like me, just based on my work at something I know next to nothing about. I've been making things up as I go along, and apparently it's working. I honestly don't quite know what to think about everything. It's just so coooooool...:)
