Corner of the Sky

Tonight was greek sing. It brings back some unhappy memories. First of all, I wanted to help out with ABTech, setting up and doing tech for the event. Of course I did help set up, but what makes me mad is that because I was a brother of AEPi, I'm not allowed to help out during rehersal or the show. I guess the worry is bias, that I might try to give unfair advantage to AEPi or adversely affect other shows. Some think it seems valid but I do not agree. First of all, it isn't like I'm looking for an especially important job with a lot of influence. Secondly, I was never very involved in AEPi greek sing and have no stake in their success. But most important is a thing called professionalism. If I'm going to do something then I'm going to make that my priority and focus. I am able to have multiple hobbies and keep them seperate. In protest I did not help with strike, although it was also since I had to get up early the next day.

Having been shunned by ABTech, I had no choice but to attend Greek Sing with AEPi. It felt weird being there like it always was in the past. I've been a bad brother with regards to greek sing. I helped out only slightly my freshman year, didn't do anything my sophmore or junior year, and was only actually involved one out of my four years. As much as I like theater, particularly my rare opportunity to perform, I have not capitalized on it. I've felt bad because of it, for both reasons.

The other thing that greek sing brings is girls. I have been and was this time uncomfortable being around which ever sorority we were working with. This probably comes from a comraderie developed over the weeks working together that the other brothers had that did not.

Well, that all being said there isn't much I can do about it now. So this year AEPi did Pippen with Zeta and won 3rd place.

Also Rans

"... made the rest feel second best, and even if they were." "Being told we're also rans, does not make us Joseph fan." Tonight was Greek Sing. I haven't written in a while and maybe that is because of rehersals. Probably not, but there were sure a lot of them. We worked really hard and I think we had a damn respectable show. I was in it for once. I've avoided being in the show or even working on sets or crew for the past 3 years so I thought it would be time to act. And it's funny because Joseph was also the last show I acted in, 6 1/2 years ago. I had a lot of fun being Benjamin. Singing, dancing, and getting beat up by Alex and his precious golden cup, which I apparently stole. I think our set came out really nice. I only hope the painting in Booth will look as good as those backdrops we had. Oh, and we got 2nd place. What I hate is people who whine about how important winning is. WHO CARES! Apparently a lot of people who aren't me. I don't know what to say to people from other organizations who claim that the judging wasn't fair, but judging for all things, like college admissions, is mostly random in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been in a competition where I've liked the outcome and a lot of the time I'm talking about stuff other than my organization.

All I've got to say is BOOTH! Well, actually I'm pretty worried. Someone observed that in booth the judge are very reliable about judging based on their criteria, which we don't usually fit into. But in that case I really do disagree with their criteria.
