Part 2

I’m moved in and mostly settled, and all is well. Today I went and had lunch with the props shop, and they were all very nice and welcoming. They took me around the theater and introduced me to everybody there. It is very exciting, I get my own desk, mail slot, and my name is even on the staff list on the website! It’s like the real world or something!

Otherwise, things are good. Fish survived the journey with little more than hunger and grumpiness, and he’s settled in enough to have built a bubble nest today. Yay!

Now I have a few more things to do to get settled with the idea of living in Connecticut, namely registering to vote and finding out what needs to happen to establish educational residency, in case I end up going to grad school at UConn.

Part 1

Well, the first leg of my trip is complete. Carleton and I left early this morning and arrived at my aunt’s house in Virginia at around 4. The fish seem to be just fine, if not a little grumpy for being cooped up in a shipping cooler all day. I think that once Fish gets into his 5 gallon when we get to Connecticut and a nice meal with extra bloodworms, he’ll be back to his old cheerful self.

I’m glad to be traveling, the sadness and worry and anxiety leading up to the big move was starting to get heavy, but once I got on the road things were much better. Having a nice place to take a break and spend the night helped too ^_^

We’ll set out early again tomorrow morning and be in Connecticut by evening, which will give me plenty of days to settle in before starting work on Monday. Yay excitement!
