Finally Friday

Work was not too bad today. None of the faculty came in until around 12pm. I ate lunch with Nancy in the kitchen. After lunch, I answered e-mails. I was able to work on my paper for legal. It is actually coming along rather well. I am happy to have it almost done. I just have to write three pages left and a strong conclusion and then I am done. I talked to my professor about it last night and she was telling me not to stress about the paper. I am not stressing, but it’s just sitting down and crafting it.

After work, I drove to RMU where I am currently sitting in Massey Theatre to help sell tickets. I hope we get a crowd of students. There is another event on campus for Greek Week it is called Airband. I asked some students campus what Airband is and they said it’s like the biggest event. They dress up in costumes and make up, and they sing and dance on a stage. It is like lip sync challenge. It sounds pretty cool. I didn’t get involved in much when I was an undergrad at RMU. Looking back, I wish I would have. I dabbled in theater and made friends that I still talk today, but I didn’t participate in Greek Life. I probably would have, if I lived on campus and was a traditional four year student.

I may stop by Airband after and check it out, but I am a little anxious to go home and hang out.

 

Sunday Matinee

I arrived at RMU by 12:30pm to set up and sell tickets for the Matinee. I hope I get to help out at the theater in the future. I really did have so much fun meeting the theater students. It brought back some memories.

Anthony and Dylan my friends that I met at RMU in theater class are coming to see the play today. When they arrived, I hugged them both and said, “this is where we first met.” I am very sentimental person.

After I finished selling tickets and the show was about to start, I walked into the theater with them. We sat in the back row. We didn’t sit in the back row during class, but it was still so cool to be there with them. The show was experiencing technical difficulties. I only stayed until intermission, then I had to go home. I wanted to see my husband and I had some homework to do for Leadership class.

Crutches

This morning, my ankle was so sore. I was holding back tears as we were walking out the door to get into the car. I hate crutches. I am not coordinated enough for this. One really has to focus when using them.

When we arrived at Oakland, Drew parked underneath my building and made sure I got to my office okay. I am so grateful for his support. Once at my desk, he helped me get my foot propped up on a chair. I was ready to work.

Throughout the day, people asked me about my ankle and how it happened. Nancy the other admin I work with reminded me to ice and prop it up higher so it keeps the swelling down. Everyone was supportive. Nancy left around 12pm.

The day went smooth for the most part, but my day was long from over. After work, I had to report to RMU for my internship. I was helping out with the Colonial Theater. I had to sell tickets in the lobby before the show. I refused to bring my crutches to RMU.

On the way to RMU, I had to stop home and get my computer. I was going to need it for the card swiper. I had to use the card swiper to keep track of students, who were attending the play.

Once I arrived at RMU, I was walking decently and had two shoes on which was nice for a change. I parked at Nicholson lot and walked to the Student Development offices and picked up the money for the ticket sales tonight. I was nervous about how this was going to go.

Then I got in the car and drove to Massey theater and was able to park close to the walkway. I got out and carried the little money safe, my computer, and my tote bag down the walkway. I walked into the theater and introduced myself to the theater students. Hannah was the house manager, and Allison was the theater director. I also met Skylar who let me use his computer. My new Mac doesn’t have the USB ports. I forgot to bring my connector. I would remember that tomorrow.

After I got set up, students started coming in. We didn’t have too many students due to the rainy weather, but I was able to swipe their card and sell some tickets to a few people. Once the house opened and the show started I waited 5 more minutes before shutting the computer down and packing up.

When I walked back to my car, I got in and drove back to Nicholson to take the money back to the office and lock it up for the night. My ankle was sore and I was so tired at the end of the night, but I had fun and I enjoyed meeting new people. Also, I sent John Locke an e-mail of how many tickets we ripped and how many tickets I sold.
