Yes folks, that's right. We've got snow. Hopefully it won't be too much and won't really stick, but it is for sure coming out of the sky. Yuck. We were hoping that winter would hold off a little longer this year since last year's was so bad. Oh well. I guess you can't win them all. But who knows it could warm up again right after this. Craziness though.

So today I got to be my 6th role in Anne of Green Gables. It's actually kinda fun to be able to help out with the rehearsal process. Plus it gets me back in the theatre a little more. Although I do have to say that it's kinda weird to get thrown into a scene when you have no idea what's going on. But unlike the show "An Actor's Nightmare" I have a script, and it's not in the middle of an actual performance. So that's good at least. Tomorrow night I will be reading, but not actually standing in for my 7th part in the show. So we'll see how that goes. Should be fun. Ok. I think that's all. Short one today.

Good Grief

I keep thinking that I'm going be so good at keeping people updated on my life and then time goes by and I realize it's been like 2 weeks since the last time I updated. I guess I just feel like things in my life don't really change, so I feel like I don't have that much to talk about. Which in a way is kinda sad. Oh well.

I have now been a Radiology Group employee for 2 weeks. Things are going pretty well. I'm picking up the scheduling stuff at a pretty decent pace. Luckily all the techs are very willing to answer any questions I have. Although this week, my fellow scheduler Judy is going on vacation, so we'll see how I do on my own back there. In terms of the digitizing we keep thinking that it's going to get less. And most days there are less films to digitize, but then we'll get a day that all of a sudden has a ton to do. So it's hard to really determine when it's going to slow down. But luckily I have the help of the techs with this as well. So that's neat.

Lately I've been working three nights at the Courtyard. I realized that it's actually not too bad to do Fri, Sat, and Sunday nights. It's much easier to do it that way then to do Thurs, Fri, Sat. Makes my sleeping pattern a little bit easier. I honestly don't mind working three nights at the Courtyard after my full week at Radiology Group. I do have my days where I'm very tired, but for the most part things are going rather well. Now I just have to get around to also doing some fulfilling things at home. Like my sewing projects that still aren't done. That and I have to finish cleaning and organizing my room and pack before my trip to Cal. for my cousin's wedding.

Oh yeah, I don't think I've mentioned the trip to Cal in a while. I am leaving on Friday to head back to Ventura for my cousin's wedding on Nov 1. Then my parent's and I will be staying for about a week to do some fun vacationing and visiting some of my Dad's side of the family that we haven't seen in a while. So that will be fun. Originally Samantha was going to come with me, but she has decided to go and visit her family in South Carolina for the week instead, which I think is a good idea because I know she's been missing them lately. So yeah, that's what's been going on with that.

Theatre-wise I've been doing some set building/lights for Anne of Green Gables at Playcrafter's. I've also been a stand-in body for a couple of the actors who had to miss rehearsals. That was kinda fun. Acting with no real pressure. It was just neat to be at the rehearsal and see how the show is taking shape. It looks really good. Can't wait to see it with costumes and everything. So yeah, I'll probably help with a couple of the shows and I'll for sure be there for strike, so that's how I've been keeping theatre in my life for right now. I know auditions for shows for early next year are starting to come up at several of the theatres, so I might be telling you all that I'm in another show sometime soon. Who knows? Oh yeah...I've also been asked to do lights for The King and I at Music Guild next summer. So I for sure have that to look forward to. Plus I'll also be auditioning for them as well. Although I can't be in King and I since I'm doing lights, but maybe one of their other summer shows. So yeah all kinda of stuff coming up that I might be more inclined to post about.

I think that's all for now. Thanks for reading and feel free to comment!

My Last Day!!

As a temp that is. I faxed in my last time card as an Office Team employee! It was a very exciting moment that I didn't really get to celebrate except for a little cheer for myself. On Monday I clock in for the first time as a Radiology Group employee! It's very exciting for me.

So I've been training on scheduling all this week. And let me tell you it is exhausting. I don't know what it is about learning a new job that just takes it out of you. I think part of it is that I'm also still kinda doing the digitizing at the same time. Crazy stuff, I know. But I'm actually getting a lot of help from my Supervisor and all the techs to get that job done so that I can be over answering phones most of the day. So that's really cool. We're getting it all figured out.

Other than that things are pretty normal. Not too much happening. This weekend I'm going to be helping to hang lights and do some finishing building on the set for Anne of Green Gables, so that's exciting. Yep, that and sleeping so I'm all set to go for next week. So yeah. That's all!

Staying Put And Moving Up

So, the big news is that Sam and I have decided that the best thing to do for our finances and our sanity is to stay in our apartment for another year. We talked about this at length and are both very happy with the decision. The only thing left to do is break the news to Katie. Hopefully that will go ok. I feel bad backing out on her, but honestly at this point it is the best thing for all of us. It will give her time to get more secure in her own life and maybe next year we can rethink the whole moving to a house concept. But for now this is the best thing.

Ok, on to the other big news. I will be officially hired at Radiology Group as of Oct. 13. Yay! This is very exciting for me. I've been a temp with them since the end of May, so that's super exciting. The other part of that is that my job is changing. One of our schedulers is getting a job that better suits her lifestyle and needs. So they asked me if I would be interested in doing scheduling. I said, "Absolutely". So for the last week, (about), I've been trying to see how long the digitizing for each day will take as well as starting to learn the scheduling job. I got word today that I'm for sure going to be doing the scheduling, so that's exciting. However we're still attempting to figure out if they will need to hire another person for the digitizing. So for a while I might be doing both jobs. We'll see how this goes. But eventually I'll be scheduling full time. So that's cool.

Yeah, I think that's all for now. I hope all is well with everyone who reads this!
