I feel like the host of Sweet Genius sneaks up behind people and sings “A World of Pure Imagination” right in their ear, in an unsettling quiet voice.
Everyone please pray or appeal to the deity or force of your choosing that the fact that my jaw is hurting again only as a reaction to the weather, tension stemming from the formatting of my resume, and the fact that I’ve been thinking about it a lot today since I had to call an insurance company to see if they’d cover my wisdom tooth extraction. There’s no way I’ll be able to get it done before I leave for Baltimore/my audition (and I wouldn’t want to anyway because knowing my luck my face would be swollen for a month after the surgery, leaving me deformed for the audition), but I also REALLY don’t need it to be hurty and infected again.
Just…I JUST WANT MY FACE TO NOT HURT ANYMORE!!!
D&D: GREATLY improved with the addition of alcohol and swearing. I’m used to playing with Mormons and I love them all dearly but there are some things you miss out on.

Within the last two weeks or so, I kind of came to peace with the idea that I probably hadn’t gotten an audition for the Shakespeare Theatre Company Acting Fellowship. It had been over a month since the application deadline, and I was trying to be realistic.
But then, just sort of on a whim, I checked the brand-new email address I created for my professional stuff.
And timestamped just one hour earlier is an email INVITING ME TO AUDITION FOR THE FELLOWSHIP!!!
Look, THOUSANDS of people apply for this thing, and there are (I think) less than 20 slots for a year-long fellowship. I checked the initial “we have received your application” email from January and there is, in fact, a selection committee. They don’t audition everyone. Meaning that they like me, which in itself is super validating even if I don’t get the job.
But I really really feel like I could do it and I’m SO excited and it’s just awesome and really perfect because the auditions are on the 6th and I’m going to be in Baltimore til the 3rd anyway so I’ll be RIGHT THERE and…
THIS IS JUST REALLY GREAT!!!!
