My mother got me tickets for my birthday to see Wicked. It was AMAZING!! I loved loved loved it. And Mirza did, too, despite the giant hair bush right in front of his view. We were in the orchestra, row P, right in the middle, so I loved the seats.
My favorite part of the show was the last song of Act I ("Defying Gravity") and then Elphaba (the Wicked Witch) flies up in the air. It's a powerful performance.

Supposedly today they are going to let the "winners" of the scholarship know if they got it. I'm not sure if they will be calling or what, but I hope I get it. I would LOVE to go to Washington, DC even if it is by myself. And to go to a conference for critical care nurses who are all excited about their careers? I feel like I need to feel and see this enthusiasm again about nursing. I'm doubting I did get it. I turned in my packet two days before the due date, but my manager only gave me the letter of recommendation the day prior and I had to put it through the hospital's mail system. She assured me it would get there in time and she also let them know to be on the look out for it. But I am paranoid.
Another thing I am waiting for today: my Glo Bars!!! They were supposed to arrive yesterday, and the UPS has already been by twice taunting me. grrrrrr!
Updates to follow if I hear anything..:/
ps: Just got my tickets to see DMB in July!! woooooo. I saw them once a few years ago, so we've been wanting to see them again. Cannot wait!
