05:27 am: um, hi
Well hi, anyone who still has me listed as a friend!  It's been forever since I've even looked at LJ let alone posted, but was sent here by Danielle to check something out, and here I am. 

So many things in life changing and many unknown variables.  Mostly, what happens when I find out I'm accepted to this school in San Francisco?  That means I have to go!  AHHHH!  I've never lived in a city, and it would be graduate school, in an unfamiliar setting.  AHHH!!!

Okay, but aside from freaking out about it, I'm pretty excited too.  The potential for me as a cultural anthropologist (to use a term NO ONE would use in their right mind) gets endorsement.  I'm interested in large scale healing on a personal level, but have little idea of any real job I'd want to hold down.  Non-profit organizations would hold many possibilities. 

And oh my god, being a piano teacher is very good for me.  My roommate, Tess, is really keeping me on my toes.  I'm having a hard time keeping up with the pace that she's moving at, actually.  Not really sure how to handle it.  Think I need to find someone to turn to for advice, but not sure who. 

And the new choir that I'm in the Camerata in Sacramento is probably going to be really good for me.  So far, it's been a really good place for me to be with singing.  A very sincere and understanding (with regards to mistakes/ not being warmed up) group of people, and I guess I just don't know very well how to get to be friends with 11 people, none of whom I know, when choir ends and everyone goes home.  I'll have to figure it out.  But the one tenor sitting next to me was really starting to annoy me with all of his talking....grrr.   I like to be able to hear a conductor/teacher pretty clearly and maybe it got to my head a little, and maybe I was noticeably passive in my annoyance, but ah well.  Such is life. 


OMGOMGOMG  I sooo don't want to be doing taxes and FAFSA stuff right now. 

But I will.

01:25 am: Today should be everyday
In keeping with my last post of just doing more off-the-top-of-my-head intuitive writing I thought I'd give some update as to what's happened in the last week in this style.

It's a lot.

Let's see, where to begin.

I got fired today! Yay!!! I have a month to get the hell out of dodge.

This is a good thing, or rather, I'm inclined to see it as not necessarily detrimental. In fact, I'd recently, two or three days of last week, been looking for excuses to quit. But the "Hook", those racsally benefits and extra perks, kept me in their grasp.

I feel free. More free. Way more free than I felt while working for those "men". That "Man" and his cronies known as "serious science". Seriously. Don't go into a scientific field these days. It ain't like the Old Days, when you could do honest science and not be bothered too much by the growing mass of the "System". Science works for the man these days, and you gotta be fierce and competitive and step on people and shit. Serious and Know-it-All. That's where I was working. So Good Riddance you fuckers. Go suck a tailpipe.

Do I sound healthy? I think so. I had a good day. And it started when I got fired.

Here's a little more about my day (skip it if you aren't too invested in my personal life):
I went home really mad after finding out I was being sacked (it's the end of the 6 month period and they don't have to give a reason). I realized that I was kinda glad, kind of relieved to have that sorted out for me, without me having to confront the "Hook" anymore, asking myself if I could ever live like this for another year. I immediately decided to go out and try and find a job that I'd be almost entirely happy to go to. Something where I could learn a whole new skill and be surrounded by good energy to boot. So I went downtown to look for some sort of good-energied place, an Herb shop (thanks Sara) or nice bookstore or something...only to realize that this was Davis. These things pretty much don't exist here, cause Davis is fucking wyrd (again). Isolation and conservative-hippiness. That's one of the weirdest things I've ever heard of.
I don't want to work in food or drink service. I don't want to work at the Co-Op. I went by Aquarius (new location across from Golden One) and saw an old friend, Madhu, girlfriend of my friend Colin. Really great energy there, not too New Agey, not too anything, sort of eclectic, I could work there. I could work a retail job once in my life and be okay, nothing permanent, just something that I can use to get financial support and work my way out of my parent's house. And I would be willing to work at Aquarius, but they're closing in a few months (so I hear from Madhu).
So I have a great conversation with Madhu and then have to head out to my Alexander Technique lesson, my second one, a private lesson geared towards teaching awareness of personal habits and chronic muscular tightness and giving you skills to understand it all for yourself. Basically right up my alley. There's a slightly weird feeling I have about the lady who teaches it, kinda like she has the "Where'd you meet THAT guy" effect going in her life. But I don't draw conclusions there. She's really good at what she does, very intuitive and can tell when she's thrown too much information at me. Very kind and understanding. I immediately learned that I could be honest about what was bugging me, and it pays off tenfold.

Moving along:
I get home and practice some singing and Alexander Tech mixed, sort of figuring more stuff out about the way that singing works, diaphragm movements mostly.

That's enough....later.
