Flirting with the Devil in the Chicken Pit

Okay wow, I haven’t posted in like six months. I guess it really is like the saying goes: Time flies when you aren’t posting details of your life onto a widely accessible internet forum. A lot has happened since I last talked to (at) you all. On the opening night of that show I was helping with in my last post, I went out with a guy for the first time, and we have been dating since. I graduated from college and walked with my class. I found a new apartment…It has just been crazy! Instead of trying to catch you up on the past six months, I’m just gonna leave it at that and talk about what has been going on this week.

When I got back into town after the Fourth of July, I was in-between apartments and promptly started moving. Believe me, I know that moving can be stressful, but the upside is that it is a great workout. And you can’t just skip it because then you don’t have your belongings. I am a huge fan of necessary activities that have a workout built in, and this week in particular has been great for that. Once I moved all of my things to the new place, I had a bunch of furniture to put together. I “built” a shelf, a coffee table, two end tables, and a counter-height table for my kitchen. On days that I wasn’t homemaking, I was at my job where we are cleaning the building of all of the big, heavy stuff that has been lying around, unused, for the past ten years. Needless to say, (but I am going to) it has been a very physical week. Here are some photos of the stuff I assembled (or, as I like to say, built — it implies a lot more ingenuity on my part, when really I just followed instructions.)

IKEA Shelf:


Kitchen Counter Table Thing:

My kitchen has next to no counter space, so I got this to give me some room to work.


“There, it’s done. Whadda ya think?”


Getting there


Pew pew — done!

If you are curious about the metal things hanging on the wall, they are just that: metal things. We found them at work while cleaning, so I snagged three for my kitchen. We also found a cool old Shure microphone from back in the day when they were still called Shure Brothers. Unfortunately, my boss’s friend beat me to it, but I love it!


For the last bit of this hastily written post, I would like to call your attention to this amazing casting call I came across yesterday while looking for acting gigs.

I wish…

Anyway, I will check back in soon! Or at least, probably sooner than six months from now! Bye all!
