It's a good thing I bought some skirts.

So I volunteered to be a lector at my parish. This is pretty cool, except I have to speak really loudly? And I'm not good at that? But whatever. It's exciting.

First of all, this has led to a HUGE influx of e-mail. Like, St. Eugene's is spamming me now. For reals. I can't get my advisor to respond to my e-mails, but somebody is going to be out of town in two weeks and will somebody please distribute Communion for me pleeeease omg??? So I logged on to sort through all that stuff and the new schedule is up. Very exciting. Let's see when I'm scheduled...

Okay...a few Masses as the lead cup...very cool...oh! And there's a word ministry one! On a Friday? December 25? CHRISTMAS MORNING? Yes. Let's get the 22-year-old who has never done this before up there on CHRISTMAS MORNING.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited, but CHRISTMAS MORNING???

So. Yeah. I'll need a new dress. Too bad.

In other news, I got a job today! I don't want to jinx it by putting it on Facebook or anything, because there's a little part of me that thinks it won't work out because I didn't get any work/study this year, but I'm going to help organize National History Day at UWM!!! And be paid for it! A LOT!!! Like, way more than the job I show up for occasionally that is on Facebook!!! Hell, if this position lasted past March I'd quit that sucker so fast some of the books would catch on fire.

But you want to know the best part? (Other than the fact that the girl who did it last year was accepted to the master's program and THANK YOU BABY JESUS WHOSE STORY I WILL BE PROCLAIMING APPARENTLY.)

They might get me a desk. I could have an office. With a desk. That I could sit at. Like a real live adult. I know, right? It's pretty important.

So. This was a good day.

Oh, pish posh. Reading on Holidays is no different than reading any other day. Age and experience are non-factors and you will have practice before than anyway.

(BTW, how many readers do you have there that you will be reading two times before Christmas? At St. Joe's I read probably once every month and a half.)
