Nice! What's the job?

Front desk clerk at the Clarion Hotel in Portland. I liked the atmosphere of that hotel the best of the places I got applications from.

If you work at night, you can write like Brandon did.

From what I've heard, night shifts can throw off your sleeping patterns pretty badly.

My thought exactly. Next semester, I have a job at the front desk of my dorm, and I asked for night shifts specifically so I could write.

I don't mind being up late. I mind working late.

I prefer to work early and get it over with. Less chance of work interfering with things that way, too.

My graduation is on Friday. I've got rehearsal on Thursday, but I got to exempt all but one of my finals, and that was today. So I'm officially done with high school! :D
