It’s my favorite time on campus. Only a week to go before finals. The students are busy but I have some leisure to sit back and watch them fumble frantically thru the last few projects. Occasionally I lob some encouragement or advice their way. Of course, the last show will leave me with a mountain of laundry and restocking just when they all run off for the summer.
The costume shop seems to attract more than the usual suspects at the end of the year. Which is very gratifying; I feel very popular. It’s also noisy and crowded. The usual topic, besides gossip about the last show, is the possibility of pitching a reality TV show about the shop to the campus television network.
After a month of non stop work, today I did my personal mountain of laundry and dishes. I get the laundry but I don’t know how the dishes pile up when I am mostly eating on campus. I think the cats must be having parties in my absence.
I made the mistake yesterday of going to Trader Joe’s when both hungry and tired. I am not sure what all I bought but the freezer is full. It was all so exhausting that I slept all afternoon to recover.
There’s still a long to do list of things that took a back seat to the dance concert but I am quite satisfied to cross those few things off.
