A lot has happened in the last three years. Landon graduated from high school and moved out of the house. He's working in the stockroom at Macy's (thankfully the one he works for is not closing!) and shares an apartment across the river with a kid named Austin. Austin will be moving to Oregon soon, so another friend, Michael, will be moving in soon.
Josh is now 13 and very quiet. He plays the saxophone in the middle school band and tends to hide out in his room most of the time. He's a picky eater and pretty much lives off of chicken nuggets and Top Ramen. He spends most of his free time playing Minecraft -- a game I do not understand.
Jack is 11 and is the opposite of his brother. Where Josh is quiet and reserved, Jack is loud and boisterous. If Josh is picky, Jack is anything but. He loves to cook and makes dinner for the family once or twice a week. He has his own apron and some cooking utensils. He is planning to go to culinary school when he grows up. He also plays in the elementary school band. His instrument in the trombone.
atticus_rex is still working as an attorney in Clarkston, but he has gone solo. He left his partner a few months ago and worked from home for a little while before finding a place to hang his own shingle. He's known as the "Jedi Pot Lawyer" due to his representation of one of our local pot shops and the fact that he filed a law-suit against the city on Halloween, while wearing his Jedi costume. It made the front page of our paper. It was pretty much AWESOME!
I am no longer working at Hastings. I left there when I was hired by the Testing Center at Lewis-Clark State College. I've been there a little over a year now.
While I was working at Hastings I couldn't do any theatre, because they said they couldn't "afford to give me the hours". In other words they felt they owned me. When they told me that it pretty much started my search for a new job.
Since I moved to LCSC I have rekindled friendships that had fallen by the wayside due to my hours and I've been in TWO productions with our new theatre in Clarkston, Abuzz Theatre Group. I played Sister James in Doubt: A Parable. That was intense. If you aren't familiar with it, watch the movie starring Meryl Streep, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis. It's fantastic.
I was also in the Naughty Christmas Burlesque. Yes... I danced around in my underwear. My spotlight number was the song "My Aphrodisiac Is You". It was so much fun!!
Anyway... the latest news is that I started school (AGAIN) a week ago. I'm dual majoring in Creative Writing and Publishing Arts, a major shift from the Science track I was on previously. I'm very excited about it. The best part is because I work for the college I only pay $5.00 per credit!!
Anyone who is still around, please comment and say hi!!
