I LOVE my school. Even though the other new guy dropped out and I'm the only one from another school.
Everyone already knows my name, I'm TA'ing a Playwriting class where I only have to hold office hours 1 hour a week, I don't have to teach a section, and my basic duties include handing out and picking up assignments. Shazam.
My only classes are my grad class and a student production group that earns you units, for which I am directing an original piece by one of the other students. It's very archetypal and Brechtian and I think it could be really cool. I've met with the writer twice already, met the artistic director, auditions are tomorrow, and I start rehearsals on MONDAY.
Holy shit, man.
