Wrap Pro and the First Five
Aloha! Let’s all close our eyes and picture ourselves somewhere else. Somewhere with a beach, temperatures comfortable enough to lounge in swimwear and waiters who will gladly fetch another pina colada for you. Alright, I feel better now.
The week has already taken off ahead of me and I feel like I’m sprinting to catch up. This is nothing out of the norm. I barely slept last night, which could be because A) I drank a Coke Zero at 6 p.m. or B) my mind was racing because of all the writing I had been doing all night. I wish I could clear my head at night, but sometimes it’s impossible.
This morning I wasn’t feeling oats, nor did I want yogurt. Feeling uninspired and lost, I fixed a simple, yummy bowl if cereal:
Then I hopped off to class in the freezing cold. I was unprepared for such cruelty from Mother Nature today, but at least it’s sunny outside! I ran around campus like a mad woman between classes trying to get the lates application turned in on time. First I went to the music library to print off my cover letter and resume. Then, I jetted off to CVS to purchase envelopes and stamps ( I ran into Muffin there, which made my morning). After CVS I heated to the Radio and Television Building to hand in my things. This application was for Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc. They are looking specifically for TV production majors, but I’ve been on the flipside of production and know I could help with casting and writing. Again, it’s a longshot, but I got nothin’ to lose!
Thanks for the coverletter insight, by the way! It wasn’t the first one I’ve written, but they definitely aren’t getting easier. I just went with my gut and wrote it the way I wanted to write it. Muhahah we’ll see…
After women’s chorale and a joyous workout, I came home to assemble lunch. I played with tempeh some more:
I used Jaime’s technique for wrapping. THANK YOU so much for that tutorial- I really needed it. I’ve got this down now! The wrap managed to keep its innards inside. That wrap turned into this blurry lunch (sorry!):
I finally showered after eating, and am now going to tackle lots of reading, homework and more application fun! Tonight MisterMan and I are going to see Last Chance Harvey because I have to write a paper for art class about the different elements. Anytime I can see a movie and call it homework, I’m happy.
Last Wednesday I was tagged by the darling miss Daily Goods for 25 Things. Now, I find a list of 25 things is not only daunting to write, but challenging to read. Therefore, I am breaking it down and writing five at a time. Round One: Childhood Edition:
1) As a young babe, I was bald until age two or three. MamaJ used to put dollops of gel in the hair that I actually had so people would stop saying, “Oh, he’s so cute!”
2)When attending parents’ friends’ parties, I never liked to play tag or hind-n-go-seek with the other kids. I always preferred to sit with the grown ups and listen to their conversations, even if I had no idea what they were talking about.
3)I was very, very bad at playing games. There is a home video of me throwing a fit after losing a round of musical chairs at my 5th or 6th birthday. I also distinctly recall throwing Pop-o-matic Trouble across the living room when I knew I was losing.
4)In third grade Clueless was my favorite movie. MamaJ made a matching fruit-print skirt and jacket that I wore with knee-high socks and baby blue high-heeled Mary Janes. This is not appropriate attire for an eight-year-old girl, but I didn’t know any better. I wanted to be Cher.
5)Also in third grade, my mother dressed me up for Halloween…as the Editor in Chief of Vogue. I was an odd little kid. I suppose my love of magazines started early.
Hope you enjoyed those five! I must get back to the h-dub (I’ve really been slacking lately!)! Have stellar days, my doves!
Ciao for now,
