Counting Down to G-Day in 0

May 15, 2014

BOOM. That’s the sound effect of my college count-down hitting zero, NOT the sound of my plane exploding. That would be an awful way to start out in the real world.

Because it’s time. Real world time. On a (hopefully nice) Saturday in May, I graduate with my B.A. in Theatre Arts and then I’ll hop on a plane, on my way out west to California. When I wrote my first count-down post, the west coast was never even considered on my list of cities post-graduation. Yet here I am, plane tickets in hand and seriously considering living in San Francisco once my summer job wraps up.

It’s been a strange year, even for it being my senior year. I’m cast in a show! I dislocate my kneecap and spend three months in physical therapy. I lost a good friend of mine this last year too. Directing my first show – I’m also organizing, asm-ing and house managing a bunch of other shows. I rubbed elbows with a lot of poets and started getting more into that scene. I went to my first stage combat workshop and joined the Society of American Fight Directors. And this is the short version of a strange, long, wonderful year, accomplishing all of those goals I set out to do.

I’m still a tarot reader who doesn’t know her own future but my card readings lately have all been very positive. I’m positive too – I’ve got the education but now I need the experience.

Today I’m saying my good-byes. Goodbye class of 2014 – thank you for letting me be a part of these classes. Thanks to all my professors for everything you’ve taught me. Goodbye Mom and Dad, I’m glad you could make it to graduation and see me board the plane. Goodbye Green Room Blog – it’s been a joy to blog these last two years with you.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll keep blogging on about my real world adventures and beyond. Starting with Hello, California! I am
