10 things I have learned from 'volunteering'* at the college theatre festival.
1. Faculty members can be just as, if not more, air headed as their students.
2. The University campus map is a veritable Rosetta Stone, and it will take many minds to decipher it. The first key is this mysterious 'north'. What is it? What does it mean? The world may never know....
3. Trying to mix green and yellow into your foot long (er, tall?) mohawk will create a laughable combination of colors.
4. The Devil's Panties boots DO exist!
5. The Dakota/Minnesota accent is frickin' adorable.
6. How to operate every single type of camera imaginable - Apparently, wearing a volunteer shirt means "Hi, I'll take pictures of you and all your friends!"
7. It IS a small world! (Ran into a buddy from my master's program)
8. Girls who haven't seen each other in a while must greet each other with high pitched squeals, jumping up and down, and hugging. Preferably all at the same time.
9. If a volunteer does not jump out of their asshole to tell you where and when your workshop/meeting/competition/circle jerk is scheduled then they deserve a sneer and a scoff. Who cares if they're receiving instructions from the top literary manager in the US!!
10. Stay away from the screw gun!
* Didn't actually 'volunteer', got told "you're on the payroll, here's 40 hours of work"
