School days [Feb. 9th, 2009|04:23 pm]
In about a year and a half's time, I shall be getting ready for graduate school. I was convinced to sign up with the McNair scholar's program, and I now see no reason not to do it. I'm considering Rice University, University of Houston, and UT, mostly because I want to be near The Boy and my folks, as they're getting older and a touch more frail as the days pass. I think Rice gives more money, but it's a longer drive than Austin, so I may have to get a small grad student apartment on campus for those times it would be difficult to drive back and forth in a short amount of time.

Speaking of The Boy, he got a slot at The International School of the Americas, which is a magnet high school for smurt kids here in town. It's going to save him a lot of heart ache, as he gets easil;y annoyed by the stupidity of his peers and teachers. With ISA he'll actually enjoy going to school because of the quality of the teachers and the advanced curriculum.

I got cast in the Spring show at UIW. It's "The Fantasticks," which may be the corniest, most cheeseball musical I've ever seen. Thanks Mithra I don't have to sing in it. But I do have to be gay. My director told me to be so flaming that at the end of each show, I have to be put out with a firehose.

So there you go.

And now that the obligatory gayest straight man in America crack has been made...

I hear good things about Rice too. The only drawback is the drive.

Ian kicks ass.
