November 7th was Jessica's birthday, and lucky, she got my package in time. I sent her some candy, a card, and some free stuff I got for her from when I registered her for her shower.

Also that week, it was SUPER busy in the costume shop. This was the week I had to finalized the entire cast's costumes. I even had some cast members who I had never seen. Also, to make me have even more stress, one actor dropped, which meant a new cast member, and new measurements.
The week ended with Latasha's Me Day. For her Me day, we did a fashion show using just newspaper.

That Sunday, the 13th, I had a really bad day. I felt the stress of being a senior, being away from home, and the realization that I am a grown up (and also some other personal issues). It was a tough time, but my sisters in the sorority knew that something was up, and that I needed my space. Sometimes the best way to help is just letting someone have space.
The next day was my birthday. I got a quiz in American Literature, a lovely card from Latasha, A LOT of work in the costume shop, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 and Lion King, one very long rehearsal, and a wonderful surprise gift of bacon-flavored popcorn from Monica.
That week, as I have alluded, was Tech Week, aka Hell Week. It is one of the most stressful times of the semester. Shirts disappeared, buttons were falling off, and a quick note to make wrap skirts, 4 of them. With tassel. I came in on Wednesday and finished those suckers up. Everything was costumed by Wednesday, and on Thursday, we opened with only 2 minor costume freakouts.
The week is now almost over. All I had to do was survive 2 odd days before Thanksgiving break. Monday, for American Literature class, we had a quiz with one of the questions being to name the random spider that lives on the classroom projector. No joke. It was a legit question worth 1pt. This is why I love college. This is why I love Rockhurst.
Today, I had a lovely lunch at Susan's (theater director) house. This was for Latasha's and mine practicum. We discussed theater stuff and had some yummy Mexican soup. But most importantly, I got to meet Beans, the cat.
My plans for Thanksgiving? Well, I'm not going home. Rather, I am concentrating on finishing up my senior thesis and papers for classes. I am also finishing up my Christmas list and budgeting for that.
I am planning on cooking some wonderful recipes for myself on Thursday. If I remember, I will take pictures of my progress, perhaps make a video of my kitchen shenanigans.
