Breakfast is said to be “the most important meal of the day” and most will agree. I do not normally eat breakfast and I get along just fine but I totally understand if you do. I think that when it comes to a big event that you shouldn’t feel forced or anything to eat when you don’t feel that you should. I have seen and … Continue reading Graduation Week | Good Breakfast Or None At All
Since I am a theatre major, it only fit that I watch the Tony’s, right? In actuality I love it but I didn’t love theatre too much like I do now until my junior year in high school. However, unlike the musicals that the Tony’s are mainly known for, in my opinion, I like to focus more on the straight plays that do not have … Continue reading Top 3 – 2014 Tony Awards
Every single semester, students in the theatre department must do a portfolio review if they want to design, stage manage, direct, or assist in any of those areas. I have stressed and will continue to stress because portfolio reviews are intense and will keep you up for ages. I finished mine about fifteen minutes before I had to present so I didn’t have a script. … Continue reading Portfolio Review
Finally my last spring show for the semester has opened tonight and it has never felt so good to get out of that situation because there has been a lot of drama to get to opening night. I am truly happy to have worked with the people I did and am, hopefully, getting better at controlling situations. Honestly I left saying “FREEDOM” in a controlled … Continue reading FREEDOM!!!
So I am taking candidates to lunch and bringing them to my class. I am handling the money. At first I paid with cash and a $10 tip. Second time I paid with the department card. Today I hear back from M-Prof that the restaurant charged me 30% tip. The restaurant don’t even ask me how much tip they wanted me to put. No one … Continue reading You Didn’t Tell Me!!
Today I met with a candidate who is coming to my department for a job since one of the faculty is leaving. My duties are to eat lunch with some of my fellow students with the candidate and then take him to my class since he would be teaching. You will see three of these posts since there is another one this week and next … Continue reading Hello Mr. Candidate #1
Note: My time on the post dates for all of the posts prior to this are wrong because they were on UTC time and now they are correct on New York standard time. Now, on to February 27! Apologies for it being so late! On February 22 I saw my production, it opened on Wednesday prior so I was excited to see everyone. Once it … Continue reading Tipsy Turvy
The show that I recently designed has been getting great reviews on the acting, performance, set, design, lighting, everything! It is crazy the feedback we are getting from people in the department and elsewhere. So many people have commented on it and we have had sold out shows so far!! For some reason the play I worked on has gotten a lot of talk and … Continue reading Hard Work is Paying Off
Okay, I will be absolutely honest and tell you that I am a person who can get really frantic and stress out immensely over a lot of things. However, M-Prof makes me calmer and by that, I mean that, he can tell me something straight out without making me feel dumb or just letting me decide how to handle it on my own. I know … Continue reading Natural Proclivity
Okay, so I am going to leave my last post before I get back on track with my schedule as a good one and one that I am so happy and proud of. I am a strange person too but M-Prof has really helped me ground myself while I have been hectic and hysterical. Tuesday night rolls around, the last dress rehearsal, and I am … Continue reading How I Got Through My Last Dress Rehearsal.
To make up for February 18! I have never in my life disliked the color silver so much until these past two months. Silver airbrush makeup is so darn expensive!!! I ordered silver makeup and of course, the north has more snow, so my makeup wasn’t here. Monday or Tuesday happens and I am rummaging in the wee hours of the morning to find an … Continue reading Silver Fiasco
To make up for February 17th!! So many things happened opening night and it has been a rough journey for me but I think that the song above “It’s Alright” by Matt and Kim is the song that played as I left my dorm to head into my major’s building. For some reason, this song puts me in a such a good mood and I … Continue reading The Song that Got Me Through Opening Night
