AIM IM with Kurt [kurtcountertenor], Blaine [mediumxdrip] 10:31 PM
mediumxdrip 10:31 pm Hey -- I didn't expect to catch you online, :)
kurtcountertenor 10:33 pm I'm working on my instant messaging skills. I'm sure that they'll come in handy for the telemarking job that I'm going to be stuck with after graduating from Lima Community.
mediumxdrip 10:34 pm You won't -- you'll never settle for anything where you can go into work in baggy jeans and a tattered sweatshirt.
kurtcountertenor 10:36 pm I could still dress fashionably. It would just only be seen by the other life failures who worked with me. They would appreciate it as much as the kids here.
mediumxdrip 10:41 pm Stop -- you're not going to LCC, you're not working telemarketing, you're going to New York, and you're going to be amazing, :)
kurtcountertenor 10:44 pm I'm just... I have this stack of college apps staring at me and they all need to get into the mail tomorrow and they think that I rigged an election! Even with the boundless talent that I have, admissions officers can't like to hear that. And NYADA...
mediumxdrip 10:46 pm You didn't do anything wrong, they can't punish you for a half-baked theory.
kurtcountertenor 10:47 pm There are so few spaces, they're probably looking for any reason to cut any of us. Thanks again for skipping chemistry.
mediumxdrip 10:49 pm I didn't miss anything important -- you needed the talk.
kurtcountertenor 10:49 pm Has anyone told you how amazing you are?
mediumxdrip 10:50 pm Not today -- I like it best coming from you, though, :)
mediumxdrip 10:51 pm Seriously, Kurt, they'll figure out what happened, you'll send in your applications, and one of those schools is going to realize how talented you are.
kurtcountertenor 10:52 pm I hope so. They can't ALL tell me I suck. They could, but hopefully they won't.
mediumxdrip 10:52 pm They won't. I still think NYADA would be lucky to have you, and they better realize it, :)
kurtcountertenor 10:53 pm I would be amazing. I'm not sure Rachel is even applying to other schools. My luck's never been THAT good, hehe.
kurtcountertenor 10:54 pm But I think I have all of the essays done. How about you?
mediumxdrip 10:58 pm I have Pace and Columbia packed and ready to go, I think, and I just need to stop obsessing over Tisch.
kurtcountertenor 10:58 pm They're all going to fall in love with you And they're going to have to fight to see who's lucky enough to get you. Ugh, and I don't want to talk about the NYU application -- I think I wrote that essay 10 times before I settled on it. ... the essay you saw was number three.
mediumxdrip 10:59 pm I'm just hoping my letters offset my transcript. That essay was great
kurtcountertenor 11:00 pm Not great enough
mediumxdrip 11:00 pm Perfectionist, :)
kurtcountertenor 11:00 pm You're just figuring this out now? ;-) Watch Columbia want you really hard. I might be dating an Ivy Leaguer.
mediumxdrip 11:02 pm I highly doubt it -- my dad would flip if I didn't at least apply, though.
mediumxdrip 11:03 pm I've pretty much written that off, but if I can get Pace or Tisch... ...Maybe I should send in the AADA and AMDA apps, too.
kurtcountertenor 11:04 pm Anything to get us to New York together.
mediumxdrip 11:04 pm I'm really not helping with the application anxiety, am I?
kurtcountertenor 11:04 pm No, not at all. But you're cute when you try. :-)
mediumxdrip 11:04 pm Whatever schools we end up in, we'll still be in New York, :)
kurtcountertenor 11:05 pm It'll be just like we dreamed.
mediumxdrip 11:07 pm We need to drop all of these off at the post office, and then spend a couple of hours going through your NYC scrapbook, don't we?
kurtcountertenor 11:08 pm After the week I've had? That sounds fantastic.
mediumxdrip 11:12 pm Set aside some time tomorrow after school, then -- that way everything will get postmarked on time, and we can see what we can add to your book, :)
kurtcountertenor 11:17 pm I'm so nervous about sending them off. What if they all reject me? You'll go off to Columbia, and I'll just have to live on your couch with you as my sugar daddy.
mediumxdrip 11:18 pm They won't. Although I wouldn't exactly kick you off of my couch, you know. We're BOTH going -- we just have to see which schools are lucky enough to have us.
kurtcountertenor 11:20 pm And then we can be chic and bohemian and stupid and in love in New York.
mediumxdrip 11:20 pm Deal, :)
kurtcountertenor 11:24 pm And neither of us will be at Lima Community.
mediumxdrip 11:24 pm Nope!
kurtcountertenor 11:27 pm And one of us will be famous Or both. I'm hoping for both. But if not, the other has an important future in arm candy.
mediumxdrip 11:27 pm I could be content as arm candy, :)
kurtcountertenor 11:28 pm You'd be the prettiest arm candy on the red carpet.
