Yesterday evening we got our DSL hooked up, and for the first time in a month, I have internet access in the place where I'm living. Hurrah! So hopefully I will be updating my LJ much more frequently, assuming I have stuff to talk about. And even if I don't, I'll probably ramble on about nothing.
Anyway. Life since May 16th.
After seeing Episode II at midnight, we had our usual last-minute scramble to get Con stuff ready (my fault this time), slept for a couple hours, and took off for the airport. Vegas was fantastic, and it was a really great con. So wonderful to see everyone again, and the con was just so-- mellow. Everyone was relaxed and happy, no tension in the air, just a bunch of people coming together and having a good time. Dunc's got a bunch of great pics on her blog at http://www.undermine.net/tracy
and Yav just posted some too, but I haven't got the link handy. The flight(s) home were a total nightmare-- well, not the flights themselves really, they were fine, but the stuff before and between. Long, nasty story, and I won't bore you with the gory details.
We came back to MIT, I packed, took my 7.27 final, packed some more, and then got on another plane to go home. We watched Sean graduate in record time-- the entire ceremony, for all 300+ grads, was only an hour. Saw Lindsay and William at the ceremony, also saw Rachel Brickman and Ben Morris, but from a distance. Lindsay and Rogue and I hung out on Saturday. Fun to catch up. :) Mom and Dad took Rogue and me to Ruth's Chris on Sunday, after Sean and Grandma & Grandpa had left. Mmmmmmm, sooooo gooooooooood....
It was nice to relax and do nothing in the week and a half I had before starting work. I took care of some minor stuff in the room (gluing drawer back together, laundry, etc), but mostly just crocheted and watched movies. Empty time is nice sometimes.
I started my summer job (internship at Enanta Pharmeceuticals) last Monday. It's been awesome so far; my project is really interesting and my boss is really nice. :) And my work computer is hooked up to the Internet (although it really hates MIT webmail). Only thing I really don't like is the commute on the bus-- the bus is fine, and the commute's not long, but ugh, lots of sketchy people on public transportation.
I'm being CRB rep for Assassins, and last night was the first night of auditions. It's really funny; I think I learned more about how to audition in that one night of watching 8 people than in almost 3 years of auditioning for shows myself. Second night of auditions tonight; Steeeeeeeve and thedan
should be auditioning, so I have lots of auditionees to hug. :)
Since I'm not doing a show this summer, I'm planning to skate a lot-- BU has cheap ice time starting in July, and I have a coach for the summer. Yay! Maybe I can learn an axel. Maybe. But just being coached again, to have someone correcting my little mistakes that have only gotten worse in the three years since high school, will be wonderful. And Heather's really nice.
OK, I should actually be working, so there's enough of an update for now. I doubt anyone's read this far, anyway. ;-)
