Friday 8th May
…And the Conservative Party have won. It certainly has been an indecisive election but it ended with surprising results. However if there’s one rule that you shouldn’t break if you are a Drama student; never, ever discuss politics.
To my discomfort, many of my friends had asked me who I voted for before I started lessons today. When I answered (while pretending to be confident), I got a negative response. One of them even tried to start a debate about why the party she voted for was better than mine. It was so embarrassing.
So from this day forth, I’ll never speak a word of politics again, outside the house.
Throughout the past two days (yesterday and today), I’ve been working and looking. I’ve made a chores list and I’m going through them; I’ve already completed some, but I’ve still got a long way to go:
Things to Do
Analyse Physical Theatre lesson: what bits of movement did I remember, how was it, etc.?
Find a folder to put Physical Theatre stuff in
Waiting For A Rainbow, blog #2
Research prices for local bus transport
Research group/individual holidays and NAS Supporter Worker Assistant
Look for voluntary weekend jobs
Look into Special Olympics swimming lessons
Use Olympus a lot more in all classes!
Type and send anxiety workshops ideas to Drama school
And while I’m preparing for the road ahead, all I can say is that I’m not afraid of adventure. 🙂
Song #1: Best Year by Callaghan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJMdKllm0tc
This song, in the words of Callaghan, are about following your dreams and taking chances. I think it sums it all, as I’m doing just about that. 🙂
