So… I have 2 shows to hang within the next two weeks while Doctor Horrible opens. And of course, no one actually thought that hanging the lights was a thing that needed to be done, so the room being used is booked solid all day till 10. Which is when my other rehearsal starts. So the only time I have to hang and program a show… is in the middle of the night. And guess what? We aren’t allowed to work on our own. So I have to break the rules to do work for a show, because no one figured that having 2 shows in a week in a half in the same space, and never letting the techs in, would be a problem.
And then I was just told that I can’t use a moving light board to program the second show I’m doing, because they are going to pull the board directly before the second show. So I can’t even START WORKING UNTIL THE NIGHT THE SHOW OPENS. DOES THAT NOT SEEMED FUCKED UP? EVEN A LITTLE?
Went to an archery range. I’m no legolas, but that was a ton of fun
Going to the archery range to take a class tonight! So much excitement! I better be awesome at it :P
I want to cuddle and pretend that life is all good. I want to pretend that the university isn’t strong-arm preventing me from taking control of my education, that the faculty would stop thinking that my taking initiative was somehow a disgrace and that the students are unable to handle themselves. We are frickin 20 year old adults, we can sort out what we think the best way for us to learn is, and apply for grants to improve the future of our university without the faculty trying to overrule us. It would also be nice if the few people that were helping me on this project weren’t equally stressed and busy, and also getting strong-armed.
Everyone I care about is stressed and busy, and there’s nothing I can do to help. Just want to cuddle and be happy in what free time I get in between dealing with the department and all this other shit.
The lighting designer for the show I’m working on had one of these on a necklace:
And my first thought was “Mju-Mju?”
Haha it’s cuz he’s Asatru, where the Thor mythology comes from.
I remember going to see Thor with him and he kept clenching his fists because he was so pissed off at all the errors.
ohh my gods the internet talks about me. what is the world coming to?
