At the ripe old age of 25 (on Thursday) I am going back to school to finish my undergrad.  Needless to say I'm excited and terrified at the  same time.  I've called shows for former presidents and world leaders but let me tell you that this is much harder than anything I've ever done before.  I was pretty instantaneously admitted to the theatre department at Point Park University and will be pursuing a BFA in Stage Management in a mere few weeks.  Everyone that I've met seems truly fantastic and immensely gifted so I can't wait to learn as much as possible from every teacher and student there.  As of today, I may have even found a house, which is a step in the right direction.  (How I'm getting my furniture from storage in GA to PA is another very big step that I haven't figured out yet.)  I may have hunted down a part-time job to pay for said house so things are really lining up.  I love Pittsburgh and I can't wait to call it home, even if it's just for a couple of years.

I did my undergrad at Pitt and lived for 2 years right outside the theater at Point Park. Enjoy.  Drink some IC Light for me.
