This week has been a most excellent adventure (with more to go!). Heh.
Monday in class I nailed the lines for a Hamlet monologue “Speak the speech…” It felt great performing it and then working on it with my prof Ã± Michael Early. It’s such a rush to understand and have the chance to emote Shakespeare with intent and comprehension. I think this is my first return to the Shakes-daddy since Mid-Summer which is FAR FAR FAR (away in a galaxy… err…) from recent. Having the chance to watch others repeat over and over again different monologues has bee fulfilling too. At times we (actors) understand what is said to us (acting notes). But it isn’t until we have a moment to really allow it to sink in. This happens more often while watching someone else perform and work a scene or monologue. Heh. I’m stoked that I’ll have another chance to perform it in two weeks thanks to October Study Days at SLC.
October Study Days. Ah yes, the strange happening that SLC’rs have come to love. Two days off to “study” and relax. I need not say more. Two days. I have no idea how on Earth that was okay’d by someone… or someones!
Ahhh. Damn it feels good to be a geek (with jock like abilities too). I smile because I can, and because I CRUSHED the v ball today during practice at the team. Yea, it wasn’t really fair but hopefully it showed them how fast the balls truly can be since the “fast” balls they haven’t reacted to recently have been far from “fast”. Tomorrow’s… today’s game is going to be interesting. Here we go Gryphons!
Live is going really well. “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.”
Emma and I had a really flushed out chat last night which was… blunt and honest without ANY grief, hardship, etc. at ALL! Is it easy to admit things like “I know I’m lonely and XYZ is why I feel this way. I’m glad I know, but it isn’t a solution. At least I know though.”? Nope. I can say this from the deepest parts of me brain juices. Nope, nope, nope. Does it feel good to get it out in the open? Does it feel good to breath? And bingo was his name-o! Yep, yep, yep!
I feel so free after my dam burst not so many nights ago. Accepting situations for what the are and embracing how I feel about myself and relationships has really put me in a great position of self awareness. ROCK!
With that said, it’s time for bed with…
