A bar in Belize

This is what I wrote - "Went to Best Buy and picked up some dual layer DVDs to burn some games."  When something stopped me.  This realization really isn't something that's tremendously wild in this world, really, but for some reason, the fact that I wrote 'picked up' rather than bought made me think of the times in college when I would always say 'picked up' rather than bought, and then I realized, back then I wanted to try and make it seem as if I wasn't spending money on these items, that by some chance they would be lying on the side of the road, and I was simply picking up these DVDs.

In reality, I bought them with my government cheese.  Still no luck on a full time, benefited job, and my agencies that I'm assigned with are even more loopy than before.  Jobs are tight for everyone, I have to keep reminding myself of this.  It's time for school though; I need to go back, and make myself more valuable in this environment where a graduate degree is required for an administrative job.  Jesus.

Or maybe it's time to pull the contingency plan, liquitate all my assets, and open a bar in Belize.  Wait, we have a new, better, amazing president, RIGHT... I should probably stay and see how this works out.

Rehearsals have been going very well.  They encourage my character to be pretty over the top, the precise acting I love, and so far I've been doing well in comparison with everyone else.  And and and, I'm really keeping the music in my head, even when there isn't anyone from my singing part there at rehearsal; I'm singing, on my own, with my own harmony line!  This may not be a breakthrough for some, but goddamn if it's important for me, especially since this is something I really want to pursue in my future career.
