So...

Post by CluedoKid » Sun May 09, 2010 2:47 pm

How is everyone? Aside from a few forum games which I'm not participating in, this forum has been pretty tumbleweed-y.

Well I'm good, but shattered not getting on much at the mo as we have just opened our shop up and its been a hectic first week. Its great working for ourselves but so much hard work to change everything round and get things how we want them. Plus I'm looking at the accounts of the first week and we are £83 down somehow and I'm staring and staring at the page and there arent' any flashes of inspiration so I don't understand it and its driving me crazy :cry:

And hows you?

I feel like I've been avoiding the internet. That's probably because I can't remember the last night I got more than four hours of sleep. Just two more weeks until school's out for the summer, but until then, I'm up to my neck in work and projects. Who knew teachers were so vicious?

I've not been on the net much. The occasional stop here and there.

I have a new job, so that takes up my days. Just recently closed our production of Cabaret, but now I'm gearing up for a Clue: The Movie: The Play readers' theater.

Also, reading a novel. London, by Edward Rutherfurd.

Studying for my big GCSE exams (the first one's in two weeks!), working on a Clue site project and digging my way through Christie books. Though, I'm still on the forum the same amount of time as I usually am.

I've become more of a lurker here, and on other forums. I log in every couple of days, but I never feel like I have anything to contribute to the threads. I might find some time to play a forum game, like I did last summer.

As for the real world, I'm filling out every job application I can get my hands on. I would love to find a job before the schools around here let out for the summer, but I feel like I'll have about as much luck as I had last summer. :?

I'm also trying to lose some weight before the next semester starts. We'll see how that goes.

I'm on, but guess I don't post as much. Life has been kind of crazy lately. Moving out soon, so I have all my stuff packed. I don't even have a bed anymore. I sleep on the floor. I'm moving to Orlando soon, getting ready for that.

I'm writing Umineko fanfics, and yeah, I feel more like a lurker around here.

I'm sorry if I missed this already, but what sort of shop did you open? That sound exciting.

As for me, I'm slowly packing up the condo getting ready for our move(s). The new house in Atlanta closes on June 9th - one month from today. We have to be out of here on May 30th, though. So we've been packing everything up and moving it to storage. THEN, starting June 1st, I'll be living in an apartment here in Jersey with two twenty-something guys I haven't met yet in a month-to-month apartment until I (hopefully soon) find a job in Atlanta and move down. Until then, I'll be flying down every weekend. I feel a little unnerved by the whole situation.

I'm trying to wrap up 10th Grade and deal with my parents who are pushing me hard into this whole acting thing. I'm suppose to be enjoying it. Honestly I am getting sick of it really quick..

Its a pet shop, we had been thinking about it for a while, as Gareth (bf) has worked for 4/5 years in the area and I had done my business degree it seemed like a good idea. Then we saw one that fitted the bill, not too far away from where I lived for a few years so kinda know the area and such. Its gonna be hard work but hopefully a lot more rewarding than working for larger companies.

Your up and coming situation does sound unnerving, hopefully things will fall into place for you very soon.

I'm so glad my parents never pushed me into acting. They tried pushing me into things when I was really young, but eventually they realized that that didn't work. They let me find acting for myself, and I love it even more because of that.

If acting is something you have enjoyed, and wish to continue to enjoy, and LOVE, you need to explain that to your parents, and get them to stop living their lost dreams through you (which is usually the case with stage parents).

Everytime I come on, I'm hoping something interesting has been posted and it's giving me ennui every-time. Will it be up to me to revive the site?

As for what I'm doing:

-A 3 door mural of the Grand Staircase at the school's entrance.
-Directing my Death by Fancy play.
-Preparing for live solo performances for Thursday
-Finishing up some art series, including Harper's Island Sims

Sorry to hear that, Black. I know how you feel, if it's any consolation.

The only things I enjoy in life is making my mysteries, playing games and talking to all of you, which I consider as my only friends.

That's good. Clue has helped me heavily too.
