It's hot

Current mood: hot

I'm certainly not looking forward to this week mostly because of the weather. It looks like it's going to be in the 90's every day and humid too, so it will feel like 100 outside. If I didn't have to work outside, I don't think I'd mind as much!

In other news, the play is in it's last week this week. Honestly, I'll be sad to see it end, but I'll be glad too. It's been stressful and exhausting this last week doing the show every night after being at work the 8 hours before. On Friday of this past week (7/14) I was at the point of just driving away from the play and never going back. I truly had to act on stage so that I looked like I was having a good time even though I wasn't. After the show I didn't want anything more to do with the show or Geauga Lake. I was pretty much at my wit's end. Not totally sure why, but I was. There were a lot of things that day that really got on my nerves, both at work and at the show. Fortunately the next day was much better as we had our biggest crowd yet and a lot of my family members came to see the show, plus I got to start work later than normal so I could have lunch with my brother and sisters (something we rarely get to do). I hope this week goes well too.

Oh yeah, I FINALLY got a digital camera at long last. I'd been wanting to get one for the longest time, but never had the money. It was one of my small highlights for the week.

Follow up

Current mood: content

Things haven't really changed a whole lot at work or the play, but I seem to be content where I am. Even though I'm "out-ranked" on my crew at Geauga Lake, I still enjoy my crew (most times!!) and working with them. We have a lot of fun together and with our always-interesting guests. I still wish I had more "clout" or influence at the park, but for now I'm making do. Oh well.

The play opens now in less than two weeks. Thank goodness! Practices have been pretty long these past few days, so I haven't had much time to myself or at home. I leave home at 8:45 AM and have been getting home around 11:30 PM. Today was a shorter work day, but practice ended up being some 4 hours long (4-8), so I got home around 9. Once the play opens, my evenings won't be so long as the play begins at 7:30 each night and is over around 8:30. The other added bonus of the show being opened is that our director can't stop us while we're performing!! I've gotten some wonderful comments about the small part I do have as Professor Seixas. It is a fun part even though it's so small.
