So I'm literally still awake with tons on my mind. This is an ok thing, but the problem is that it's almost 3am and I've got a 9am class to attend.
What's been on my mind? The list below is the small fragment of what's been buzzing through my head tonight:
- My play for Playwriting Class (which is the 9am class)
- Team WilPro, Relay for Life Team
- Student Senate Proposals & Grievances
- Alpha Psi Omega, honorary theatre fraternity
Yeah, my list is long. But that's just a mere fragment of it. I've also got Graduation stress, Post-Graduation stress and trying to stay positive through all of this. I'm surprised my acne hasn't acted up...hahaha
Ok, so for my Playwriting Class, I'm doing a very interesting play. An idea that had been sparked by previous events and the same old cliche themes. But I've enjoyed writing my first draft and I'm trying to get a second draft done before Sunday, so I can submit it to my professor for feedback and then do another revision before Monday, when my play will be done for workshop. Which if anyone is available from 9am - 10am on Monday, March 28 and would like to read my play to my class and participate in discussion it would be much appreciated. I need three males and two female. But I'm not required to ask for anyone to come, I just would like to have others read for my class as oppose to my classmates who if they did have to read my play aloud would also need to focus on it as a whole. So I'd like to get people outside my class to read it so my classmates can focus on listening to the piece.
Went to the Relay for Life meeting tonight. Pretty much was a reminder to get donations to help support the American Cancer Society and to have fun. Well my team currently has $50 raised and the minimum goal is $1,000. For each individual it's $100, so if there are ten people in one team and they all raised $100, they've made their goal. As it stands right now, I only have seven people on my team and again only raised $50. BLAH! So I came up with the ingenious idea of Pie your RA, which then led to Pie your Student Staff. Hopefully we'll raise $500 so then we can also Pie our Hall Director! Which is my incentive to getting people to come and support us. But really the big attraction is being able to pie me. And I choose to do this, so I'm ready for it. However in my poor planning in one week, I will have down two events where I would be pied. The other event was with my Fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, for Pie a Pie, which my fraternity did with the ladies of Alpha Omicron Pi (or AOPi for short).
|My resident Patrick pied me for the Pie a Pie event. Notice the reaction from one of my fraternity brothers on the left (thanks Chris)|
So I've made some decisions as a concerned student in which I've filed a grievance for. The grievance was for Student Senate and for the fact the meeting before Spring Break was cancelled for our Men's Basketball teams Big Sky Finals Championship game. On a personal front, I was excited to see our guys make it and go to the game (which I did), but on a profession front, I was pissed. So I filed a grievance for it and the plan now is to write a proposal in the Constitution and/or Bylaws on proper procedure of meeting cancellations.
The theatre fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega, which I'm the Executive Director (aka President) for has it's two annual events coming up. This next weekend we're putting up our Practicum Show and the end of next month presenting our school, the School of Theatre Arts & Dance, end of the year awards ceremony named after one of our beloved professors, Tom McNally, called "The Tommy's." So in all of this I've been along with the other executives members, produced this play as well as now in the planning phases of the awards banquet. Which I'm going to probably ask for Student Senate for money for the event as well as talk with our Director of our school, which is also the Advisor for Alpha Psi Omega and our Dean of the College of Performing & Visual Arts for some sponsorship. Also Alpha Psi Omega will also be inducting new members next weekend, which again will cost money for dues and for invitations and what not. Which I need to send the invitations sometime tomorrow. AHH!
I feel like an overall stress right now is finances. Seriously...it's ridiculous, whether it be for a good cause and raising awareness to needing money to put on an end of the year banquet.
So yes, this is the current status of where I am at. I am not yet tired after typing for a good twenty minutes. But at least I got this all written down.
My schedule this past week has been crazy and it's only been the first week back, which also doesn't help that there is less that SIX WEEKS
left of my undergraduate career. Freaking out but also getting really excited.
Again my head is filled with too many thoughts write now. And what am I doing...blogging.
Well back to work on stuff or I'll probably try and get some sleep.
