E-E-E-E-XTASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (round 2)

(Moi et Krystal @ The Drag Show 2009)

Tomorrow will mark round/year 2 of me and the girlies (sans-Jenna-who-is-up-in-the-Yukon-deeply-encased-in-snow-with-bears-and-scrapbooks) attendance at The Drag Show.
For those wondering what it's a drag show...people dress as the opposite sex and put on a fab show and if memory serves me correctly, I had an effing blast year! I cannot wait for tomorrow and am gonna take TONS of pics and will post some here. There was lots of laughter last year and tomorrow promises to be no difference. The only difference is that a) i'm not dying; b) there will be no coughing; c) i will literally be flying by the seat of my pants! d) there will be no epic performance by Krystal dressed as a man and selling 'ectasy' to Jessica-the-Whore with a drawn on ginger-stache and; e) total lack of Jenna.
This year is different as this is how tomorrow will be for me from the get-go:
1) Go for regular IV in the am.
2) Fly home and work from 3-8pm
3) Fly home at 8, feed pets, pee dog, get dressed and make-uped, fly to campus to attend drag show, which begins at 8
So yeah! This past week has been that of a normal persons! Who woulda thought?! I was right in my assumption that working and occupying my mind would take away from thoughts of wanting to die b/c i can't cope with life.
Is that stupid and selfish? It sounds like a giant oxymoron too. But i'm learning a lot about myself through working. I'm enjoying my job greatly to be honest. I've worked 10-6 Tues and Weds, 12-8 tonight, and 3-8 tomorrow. Next week is 3-11 all week. Not so bad, at least i get the day to just veg.
I was told by a supervisor that i'm doing really well for only being there 3 days, which makes me feel really happy. I hope this feeling lasts!! Even though I've been there 3 days I feel like i should already know everything, which isn't possible and i have to keep reminding myself of that fact. It's like life: i've spend 3 years dying and now that i'm not, i can't expect to 'know' how to life after 7 months. It takes time. But at least i'm motivated, right?
Well i think that's all! I will try to post some pics tomorrow or Sat! Hope you're all well!:)
