Dragon*Con was great and all but Raven and I were too busy SAVING THE WORLD!
After EIGHT months of working at UGA, my name was finally added to the nameplate outside my office! Now I just need to stop locking myself out every single day.
I’ve been working for UGA since I transferred there in January 2012. When I left for LA to intern at CONAN in June 2013, I was lucky enough to continue working from my own laptop 2,000+ miles away.
Now I’m back from LA but I have no need to return to UGA as I’m finishing my last semester online. Luckily, my boss is still letting me work from home for my last semester. I’m glad that I visited my boss the week after I returned (my boss is amazing), because that would end up being the last time I would see my office.
Today my boss told me that there were some staff changes and they had to move some people into the office I work in. I knew it was inevitable, since I don’t work in my office anymore, but I still come into the office to work in person every couple of weeks. I’m still working for UGA, but I guess I’m just sad that I no longer have my desk that I called my home for 18 months.
JEFFREY VEGA’S OFFICE. 345 TATE STUDENT CENTER.
January 2012 - August 2013. Never forget.
I took this picture of my desk on my last day before LA. I always kept it super clean!
Just kidding it literally always looked like this:
I finally met best friend slash cyberbully preciousblueberries in person by pure chance at Niagara Falls in Canada, which is just where I imagined we’d meet!
Coming to you from Warner Brothers Studios… it’s ANDY!
Ha, I fooled you. You thought I was going to say CONAN. But no, this is my semi-clever way to tell you that ANDY RICHTER got his pilot picked up by Fox! What better way to start posting about the trades than posting about somebody I work for!
… Fox has bought the Andy Richter-hosted Step Up, in which contestants can win a stash of cash if they step on the right square — while avoiding a misstep that can taketh away. The higher a player goes on the pyramid, the greater the risk and the reward. No word yet on Fox’s plans for Step Up, which is in production.
THAT IS SUPER COOL! I remember he tweeted that he wouldn’t be on a couple episodes of CONAN last week, and THIS IS WHY! He went to go film the pilot. That is super exciting. It was especially cool because in my Hollywood Studies class I’m doing here, my professor always tells how all the news in Hollywood is called “the trades.” And it wasn’t until I saw Andy’s tweet that it became real for me:
And then he sealed the deal for me with his follow-up tweet:
I’m excited to continue follow the trades to hear more about his new show!
