I'm running late for work, but I wanted to check in and tell you that I'm pretty happy right now.

I finally started my Etsy shop. I only have 3 things listed but I needed to kick myself in the butt a little bit. My goal for today is to finish a 4th bag and start a fabric covered bulletin board I've been dreaming up.


Anyway, find me at Maisie March Creations

I have made this and will be posting it periodically to remind myself (and others) that "this" is not eternal and will end.

Life Update

So...I didn't get the job. Which is disappointing because it's kind of like making the top 20 on ANTM but not actually getting on the show. Realistically, though, I think it's for the best. Now I can A) move in with Patrick, B) go to Sofia and Dustin's wedding and C) get a goddamn kitten. So I think I will be in Bloomington for the first part of the summer and then Indy. So there that is.


Edit: The reality has just sunk in that I have no income in the foreseeable future. I hate that. I really. hate that.

So the snow is regrettable, but I like that cancelled classes leave me cozy in the apartment with hand-sewing and huuuuuge bowls of chili. And seemingly endless episodes of Gilmore Girls stored on my DVR from my week away.

I confirmed that I would not like living in New York City. That said, it has a lot to offer. And I learned that I would like living in SoCal, but not at this juncture. Sometime in the next week and a half I will find out if I'm offered a summer job. The decision has been chewing up my insides, but I think I've made a choice and it has calmed me. And I haven't changed my mind in 5 days, a new record.

What song would you like to dance to at your wedding?

Spring Break Part I

Here I am, on break between vacations. Here are two things you don't know about Patrick's desk...he has Euros and I can't find a pen.

Our 3.5 days in SoCal were a smattering, a sampler of what LA has to offer. We went hiking on a hill that's on the coast, driving through Beverly Hills and Hollywood, strolling through Santa Monica and on the beach, and for tourist cred we went to Universal Studios. My proudest moment was impressing the karaoke DJ. Because he's been around in a town where everyone wants to be a star. And Seth Rogen goes to that karaoke joint (thought, alas, not on the night we were there). In fact, I saw no famous people at all (although Patrick's brother pointed out a guy to us who I guess is a really famous magician). Actually I am never aware of my surroundings ever so I could be standing next to Beyonce on an elevator and not know it. But that would never happen.

We also got the hook-up and saw a press screening of V for Vendetta which I enjoyed very much, though it seems like a really strong statement to be making right now. And there was a guy who booed and hissed at the end and shouted out "Gloria Steinem is Hugh Hefner's whore!" which, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with anything.

Tomorrow begins Spring Break Part II.

Last night I had a dream wherein many things happened, but the part I most remember is trying to kiss the guy who played Fi's brother on the Disney Channel series "So Weird." See image below. He pulled away from my kiss and I was mad.


I have 2 classes left and then I am outta here. I'm wingin' it to the coast. In fact, it's time to listen to every song I have entitled "California". Gotta pack.


It's alright
I'll be back and I'll
bring the sun to shine
in your eyes
on your shoulders.

So's your face.

Ok, so you should know I had this internship interview on Monday. For starters, the interview went just fine. I have no idea how to analyse it so I'm not going to even try. But I didn't fuck up royally, let's just leave it at that.

But that was only 2 hours out of about 45 hours. The rest? Well they were like being poked in the eyeballs until you cry.
- I get to Indy with plenty of time before my flight. Not that it matters because there's bad weather in Chicago and we get delayed about 2 hours. But my connection is also delayed so I'm not worried. Yet.
- We get to Chicago about 30 minutes before my next flight is scheduled to leave. Fine. Not fine actually because there's someone else in our gate so we wait 20 minutes for our gate. Still could catch my flight though. But only is the fuckin' guys with the direction lights were there to direct us into the gate. But they're not and no one can find them. I'm still holding out hope that the flight is delayed and I can catch it.
- Unfortunately I miss my connection by about 12 minutes. The snippy flight attendant tells me I'm on the last uncancelled flight to Madison that leaves at 7:45p. I will take this time to point out that I should have been in Madison by 4:30pm. It is now 6pm.
- After stuffing my face with some MickyDee's to stave off the panic, I learn that my flight has been delayed until 10:33pm. This would get me to Madison at 11:30ish and I still have to drive an hour in the dark to a tiny town in the middle of nowhere.
- I, of course, call my mom. I whine about it all and she tells me to call and make sure I can still pick up my rental car (I can until midnight) and to decide if I should spend the night in Madison instead of Dodgeville. So I cancel my Dodgeville reservation and she finds me a hotel by the Madison airport.
- I learn that no less than 5 flights to Madison have been cancelled so far that day and get in the very lengthy customer service line to find out what my options are.
- Over an hour later I get to the desk and the agent informs me that not only is my flight not cancelled, but it's leaving in 20 minutes. SOME NOTIFICATION WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE!!!
- I get on the plane at 8:15pm, but since there was never any announcement that the flight was leaving early, half of the passengers are not there. We finally do leave at almost 11pm, but the flight only takes 30 minutes.
- I get to Madison and pick up my car, thinking it's late but I'm in the clear now, I'll just get my bag and find my way to Dodgeville. Can you recognize my critical mistake? I assumed my luggage was on the plane. Bad. Move.
- So I have no luggage, no change of clothes, and no makeup. Oh, and an interview in 9 hours.
- I drive to Dodgeville...in the densest fog, relying on the reflectors in the middle of the road as my only guide...in a rental car, my first that drives much differently than Carlo....on country roads...or yeah and I'm crying uncontrollably.
- I check into the hotel and the guy at the desk is very nice. I get about 4 hours of sleep then make a dash through the snow to Walmart where I buy about $30 in toiletries plus a white shirt to make me feel better and some hilarious underwear that say "Rock and Roll" across the butt AND the crotch.
- After a shower I can make myself believe that if it wasn't for the scuffed-up snow boots I would almost look presentable.
- Everyone at the interview was very sympathetic and luckily it's a very casual company.
- After the interview I get back to Madison and eat some delicious lunch. I drop off the car (which I did not wreck) and learn that my luggage is still somewhere between Chicago and Madison. Even with my flight delayed it will not arrive before I leave.
- I get to Chicago and spend a ton of money on food because the adrenaline has left my body leaving my completely exhuasted and emotionally beat to shit. I eat a $5 scoop of ice cream.
- My flight to Indy actually left on time and Blair picked me up and drove me home. I slept hard. And yesterday afternoon a man came and delivered my luggage to my apartment.

So there that is. That was my first adventure into being an adult. I think I was either being punished for my hubris or tested, I have yet to decide which.
