This is going to be a long ass entry. Just so everyone knows.
Let's see...so last Friday I went to Kelly's house and we tried to accomplish things for Bye Bye Birdie auditions. Which we did. Woot. Then I went home at 9:00 and still had to pack everything for Oklahoma...because I'm not one to do anything in advance, haha.
Had to get up at a horrible, horrible time Saturday morning...I believe it was 5:38 am. Gross. I think I had like 4 hours of sleep if that. Got to Newark with the heaviest bag in the history of the world in tow. Flew to Dallas...slept most of the way. I was quite tired, I must say. Had to switch terminals in Dallas which actually ended up being a very good thing because I just had to ride the monorail instead of walking some far distance with my heavy ass bag.
Had fun there being independent. Went to a Friday's and had the best hamburger ever, lol. It was rather fun being off on my own in such a way :P
Then went to my gate and waited. I was wearing my HotDog Johnny's shirt so some guy was looking at it and asked if I was from Jersey, so I said yes. He offered to carry my bag for me when we were heading through the gate. I declined, but it was nice of him to offer I thought. He talked to me some more on the way to the plane and then tada...turns out I'm sitting next to him.
So yeah, he showed me his CD's and then the guy across the aisle got involved in the conversation because the guy next to me liked some band he liked too. So they discussed music...and skateboarding...neither conversation I had anything to contribute to. But then we talked about Garden State and Napoleon Dynatmite...so that was fun.
The guy next to me was kind of like Melinda...in that he sat there and basically told me his whole life story, lol. He was old and weird...yet not in a creepy way. He was nice. And I had someone to talk to, lol.
So yeah, when we got off the plane he carried my bag for me and told me where to tell Riene to pick me up and everything. And we said goodbye. Yeah, he was nice, never told me his name though, lol.
Riene was running late due to some adventure at the zoo...so I sat on a bench outside to wait and it was sooo nice and warm. It was awesome. Like 65ish probably.
Riene picked me up. Bwahaha, it's so odd...I was just like, "Haha, I'm in your car..."
We drove around, stopping at a few places including the "Hobby Lobby" which is a funny name for a craft store....
Got to her house where I settled into a nice stupor induced by sleepiness I'm sure... Was kind of fun being in Riene's house...Raj was majorly jealous, haha. Bill was really nice, the chillins were adorable...it was a good time.
Saturday night we ate at the Olive Garden which is always good and Riene ate calamari for the first time ever :P From what I remember we just stayed up wayy too late after that...though whether I was *actually* awake is debatable i think...
Sunday was spent laying around. Which was perfectly fine by me, as we all know I'm the laziest person ever and am quite content to laze around, haha. Except of course for when I was led on a wild adventure through the woods by little Erin...It was like 70 degrees...Was awesome.
Can't even remember how rest of Sunday was spent... I graded some of Riene's tests, typed to some people on Riene's computer to confuse them... Stayed up too late again that night.
Next morning had to get up earlyyyy. Damn everyone who was in NJ sleeping in till 11:30!!! haha :P Just kidding...sort of...
Was vrey kindly dropped off at the Oklahoma City University. Spent a little while wandering, trying to find the building I was supposed to be in. Couldn't. So I settled for just walking about at random. Finally went to the student center place as it was familiar to me. Found someone in there and asked him where the place was I was supposed to be. Yup, I'd walked right past it. Unfortuantely it's the only buliding that is not clearly labelled, haha.
Chilled in the student center for awhile...Found an armchair in a corner and just sat and tried to prepare myself for my interview as best I could. Wasn't really nervous...but was worried I'd screw up.
About 25 minutes before my interview I left the student center. Already I could feel that my high heels were giving me a horrible, gaping wound. Tore off a piece of a playbill I had and wedged it between the blister and the shoe, but was still in pain. Not sure if it helped at all.
Arrived at the building and found the Dean's Office easily enough. And I knew it was the right place...outside all the offices there were little marker boards hanging up and they all said, "Welcome Stephanie!" on them. Haha, that was pretty nifty.
The head lady came out to greet me and told me to wait a few minutes. Meanwhile, Patrick, my admissions counselor, came and chatted for a bit, then scampered off again.
Interview commenced. Three women interviewed me and they were all incredibly nice. I *think* I answered everything pretty well. They seemed to like me anyway. So I don't think I screwed it up or anything.
Had time to kill afterward, so I was brought up to a dance room to watch a jazz class. That was neat, they were mad good dancers. And I've told several people this...but I swear to God this happened, I'm not making it up.
Jazz teacher: *holds up floppy hands* Excuse me, are these jazz hands? *does uber jazz hands* THESE are jazz hands!!
I almost died. Too funny. Too funny...
After that I waited around for about 20 minutes then went back to the room to watch some of a ballet class. Went back downstairs to say goodbye to the head lady. She was so nice...and she said she thought I'd fit in well there, so I guess that's a good sign..hope so anyway, lol.
Bill and Riene picked me up...and were nice enough to stop at a drug store to get me bandaids for me open wound. Thank you, high heels. Have some special blister bandaid on it now.
Was dropped off at the airport, said goodbye to Riene... It was so incredibly nice of hre to let me stay.
Flew to Dallas...had to walk a million miles to propergate with big ass bag, grrrr. Finally got on the plane, but it was delayed. Which was a pain because at that point I reallyyyy wanted to be home.
Was sitting next to this really bitchy gay man who was mean...that was dumb. And this baby across the aisle SCREAMED and I mean SCREAMED the ENTIRE way to Newark...gahhhh. BUT I still managed to write my Dracula essay!! ...Only to discover that Ms. Joyce had struck again...and made it due on Wednesday...oh well, at least it's done.
Yesterday...back to school...dismissed early due to HORRID weather. Almost died. But avoided it, woot.
Today...school, school. Whatever. Senior play auditions! People showed up yay! Kelly thinks that I'll be Kim, Yay! That would be nice. We shall see :) Everyone did a good job at auditions I thought...I mean except for the people you knew wouldn't be all that great. But whatever, haha. It was rather fun...
NOW that was the longest journal entry ever. I told you it was going to be!! I'm tired. Need to do some homework. Hmm...let's see...what kind of environment to Nazis like? Do they prefer a water dish or a hamster type water bottle?
