i haven’t been posting publicly much. i haven’t even been posting friends-only that often, though i’ve been doing a lot of writing i’ve kept private. no, i’m not gloating or dangling this in front of anyone like oooh look what andrea can write about and not share! i would hope very much that no one out there feels that they’re missing anything whatsoever. i just feel the need to explain that though i’ve been doing alot of thinking and composing, very little of it has felt ready to be read by anyone else.
i got out of the house tonight, though. it was really great to go and hang out and see friends and drink beer. we decided we definitely need to make an effort to do it more often. i think mentally it will be really good for me to get out of the house more than i have been, and i had an excellent time this evening. i left the house at 7:30pm really expecting to be home around 10pm at the latest, and i got back after midnight. d was totally awesome about me having this time to go out, too, which is certainly to be appreciated.
i have a really busy teaching schedule coming up with mcat classes, and i’m starting a new playwrighting residency with city theater, but other than that, i’m still just waiting to hear about some dangling job prospects and just lying around with the boys at home. anyone back from winter break early, or in town visiting, or naturally residing here is encouraged to call and email me repeatedly to get my lazy butt off the couch and out to a bar to drink deelishus beer and socialize. come on, you know you want to.
today’s title is of course from the musical les miserables
