Poor me - "forced" to work in the costume shop. When I got home and told the Chief, he teased me about staying past closing so I can continue to play in the costumes. That's probably not too far from the truth - I full expect to have NO trouble getting in my 40 hours. At 4 hours a week, I'll probably hit that number before the end of the semester.
They also have an arrangement they call a "fire sale". Instead of spacing your 40 hours over the semester, you do a single 40-hour week during the week before classes start. You get the same credit, but knock it out in a single week. Not all of the technical shops offer this arrangement, but it's nice to know it's out there, in case I want to get a jump-start on my semester.
