I'm back?

Maybe. I'm going to try in any case.

In the past few (er more than a few) days, I've done quite a lot. I did Syncopasian auditions. I watched Wicked. I got a potential research job. And I went on Syncopasian Retreat.

By a few days, I guess I mean, since school started again.

Let's start from the top of the list.

Syncopasian auditions. were. hell. Ok, so the first day of auditions, we were there from 8 am to around 9? Auditions only lasted till 7, but then we had to decide on callbacks, and there was drama. By drama, I mean arguments over who to take. Most were rather clear cut, but there were some that were hell. We ended up deciding to take 14? I think for callbacks. That's 4 more than last year. And they were all very very strong candidates. We ended up getting 5 new members! Yay! 4 guys and 1 girl. So we're kinda more balanced now, which is always a good thing.

But before that. I decided to get donuts for the rest of the group, since dunkin donuts was supposed to be open at 8. Guess what didn't open until 9? Sorry guys. But donuts were nice.

Next! Wicked. It was really really awesome. By that I mean I was a little blown away by how -blond- Glinda was. Kevin was right. Glinda is so blond. So blond. Insert hand motions here. But the thing is, I thought that the Wizard moved a lot like Kevin. So Kevin is now: Dr. Justin Beiber Wizard Who. Congrats.

So apparently, I'm not going to be doing research on updating GPS with respect to traffic conditions! This will be great. And the prof. wants me to buy an Android phone. No biggie. XD I'm perfectly ok with that, since he's going to be paying for the phone itself.

Syncopasian retreat was interesting. We learned Dim Sum Girl and did auditions. Didn't get through all 3 songs we wanted to audition, but oh well. What I did want to mention is that I'm a little bitter. It seems that every time people audition, we give out critique and where to change things to make the chances of getting the next audition higher... except me. I got no discussion whatsoever. You know, that kind of hurts. Really. Beyond that, retreat was quite awesome.

So I'm basically caught up now, right?
