The last two weekends were not so terrible and yet i don’t remember much about either of them. I think I got shot down by a child with a marshmallow catapult and another came to my aide to see if i was alright…but I actually don’t remember alot.
They were the final two weekends and they were bitter sweet.
But I learned alot.
I learned that a good night sleep does wonders for the human body. The last weekend was not kind to me and my body is still recovering from being drunk. That was not fun.
I learned that working the box office for a theatre company the night before faire is a bad idea.
I learned that its always fun to ask children how their day has been and watching their eyes light up when you give them something shiny.
I’ve also learned that “Hi I’m Syri, ask me anything” works better if I am dressed as a fancy pants courtesan. It was fun being a bandit. But I think if I got an upgrade I could play more with it.
I learned that I would use computer and tech slang to respond with when my brain farted and died.
I learned that you gotta push through even if your day is the worst.
I’ve learned that getting drunk and kissing everyone will give you a chipped tooth and probably cause you problems. And make you lose a good friend.
I learned that its okay to take some time to cry.
I’ve learned that a little help and a few kind words go a long way.
I learned that sometimes you need to bail on one thing to enjoy another.
I’ve learned that some days you feel lost but you’ll get through it.
I learned that it’s not okay to demonize someone because you are jealous, and its better to approach them and apologize if you feel like you’ve made them feel unwanted.
I’ve learned that not everything everyone says about someone is the entire story.
I learned that sometimes its better to let things go and not let it ruffle your feathers.
I’ve learned that I might have poly tendencies.
I learned that taking on too much can really lead you to a melt down at four thirty in the morning.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens I have an amazing tribe to vent to and to take care of me and me take care of them in return.
I’ve also learned I am an awkward octopus. Moreso than I realized and the the octopus god will approach whenever she feels like it.
This is just some of what I’ve learned. There is always more. I am growing as a human being. And trying not to take on too much.
