Way back when, in my first year of university (about 5 years ago) I was a young and innocent tech. Excited for the glamour of being In Theatre, I signed up to be a Stage Manager. It has been a lot of fun, and taken me some great places, but to the left is how we did the lights. From my first to third year, that was our lighting board. It usually required two people, and a broom to work it and run the lights. We later found out, that it was the 2nd last of it's kind in Canada. Apparently, we were hardcore.

What is the What

Last month, we put a bed on a roof. It took 4 arbourists to get it down.

Shifting the Focus

I spent more time on this blog then I did reading Nietzsche. Which isn't saying a lot. Because I don't think I've read Nietzsche since my final year of university.

So I am shifting the focus. Away from cooking, and towards my everyday slightly ridiculous life.

In theory, I'm starting a new job next week as a manager of a fairly large fundraising campaign, where I organize it, and find and coordinate 2000 volunteers. Yes. that's right. I am in charge of something, something that huge. I feel the power coursing through me. I also, get an assistant- a lackey if you will.

This is awesome for a number of reasons- the first, and most important being that I am currently a lackey. I work for a friend of mine, doing research for a few documentaries- and also do other random lackey work. Saying I work for him, is a bit of a stretch, as work implies pay.


I'm going back to grad school in Sept. (probably). And on top of managing 2000 volunteers, I am taking some courses to remind myself what school is. This, will actually be utter hilarity in my opinion. I may well lost my mind. It will be awesome. Much like the below picture. That was 2 years ago.
