New Hobby!

So a few weeks ago our school was administering PSSA test and they had activities planned for the students in the afternoon so they could unwind and relax before the next day of testing.  Our Principle asked me if i would be interested in DJ-ing a school dance at the end of the day and i thought about it and accepted.  The whole week before, i had a ton of kids tell me all the songs that they were into and i spent a bit of time screening them and buying the appropriate ones off of iTunes (on the schools bill of course 🙂 ) and put together a pretty sweet play list for the event.  The kids loved it and now the school has decided to drop their regular DJ ( a hired professional in the area) and hire from in-house.  Needless to say, i have a new side career!  My debut night-event will be next friday night.  Wish you could come, but its only open to middle schoolers, sorry….wait, that sounds horrible…

I suppose i’m going to need a sweet DJ name.  Any ideas?  I thought “DJ Nasty” would be cool, but its already taken by a guy who prints dirty pictures on his albums.  Probably not the best example to follow.

Finally time to breathe…and my sister rocks

Well after 6 months of planning and 4 intense months of rehearsals, our middle school musical is over and all i can say is what an experience. I can’t tell you how proud i am of the kids that were involved because they really stepped it up and put on 3 great shows. They learned a lot through the entire process, but not as much as i did. It was a lot of long days and a lot of hard work, but it paid off in the end. Now I’m looking forward to having a life again, having time to do things aside from school, and being 12 weeks away from summer break (but who’s counting??).

In other news, Amy’s basketball team made it to the sweet 16 round of the D3 NCAA tournament and they play at home this Friday night to make it to the elite 8 vs. Rochester. I’m probably going to head down there to watch with my parents Friday night and you all are welcome to come with me. It will be one great game! You can check on how they’ve been doing here:
