So, I got lasik. :) I started having problems wearing my contacts a few months ago and found out it was giant papillary conjunctivitis, an inflammation of the eyelids that can be caused by wearing contacts. Tried wearing my glasses for awhile, but when I tried my contacts again it came back. So, after debating I decided to go ahead and get lasik. Was rather nervous, but it went well. Now I can see! My vision's still adjusting and my eyes feel kind of strained when I try to focus on close stuff, but otherwise I can see really well.

Just have three more classes to take before I graduate. I'm taking one over the summer and the other two in fall, all writing classes. Hopefully it'll help me out with disciplining myself to sit down and write. I have all these stories in my head that I'd like to get out on paper. But my first class both semesters is early in the morning, so I'm also going to have to work on disciplining myself to go to bed earlier. ;)

I've been mostly playing Geas over break. I like just relaxing and not having to do anything. ;) My elf just joined the rogues, mwahaha. I've kind of given over playing Desi. But, despite futile efforts at resistance, I made another character who has been dying to come out. It's another old char concept from Feudal Realms that I thought would fit into Geas's world. Haven't played him too much yet though.

I've done a couple more short films. I had really wanted to get a part in a feature I auditioned for awhile back, but they went with someone else. I am going to be an extra for it though. As it turns out, they brought in some big name talent, including Malcolm McDowell and Dean Cain! And the director is also the fight director for The Highwayman. So, six degrees of separation... At least I can say I've worked with a guy who's worked with Malcolm McDowell. ;)

Oh yeah, one of my friends who moved out to LA worked on a pilot as the fiancee of Henry Ian Cusick from Lost. :) And her boyfriend is in another pilot as the cute guy oogled by Zooey Deschanel. And Derek who I did Intrusion with has been on national commercials and a few episodes of Conan O'Brien. It's kinda cool seeing people I know on tv. :)

We will be shooting some more of The Highwayman in July, and I have a couple other projects I'm working on that I'm just waiting to hear from regarding shooting schedule. I'm apparently SAG-eligible now, though I've not yet shot the webisode that's giving me SAG-eligibility, so I don't know if that counts yet. ;) Hey, have you checked out my imdb page? :) Yeah, I've mostly been focusing on acting for now. Hopefully I shall find more paying gigs. Moving forward at least.

Hm... Yep, I think that's about it of note.
