Things Going On in My Life Now:
Part the First
Sooooo, you may have noticed that I missed yesterday's Top Ten Tuesday. I also have absolutely NO posts planned for this week. Because, guess what...
...it's TECH WEEK! (For Pride and Prejudice - come see it!)
And as anyone who's been in any sort of theatrical production knows, nothing happens during tech week outside of rehearsal.
So I really haven't been doing any sort of fun reading at all. Even though I have a minor role, I try to squish at least a little bit of homework into all my "free" time in the dressing room.
Next week is Spring Break, so hopefully I'll get a ton of good old fiction reading in then. I really don't think you want to hear about my Anthropology textbook (though it is rather interesting, I must say).
On the bright side, Pride and Prejudice is coming along nicely! The theater is fantastic, and the costumes - oh, the costumes.
I'm sorry for my shameless advertising (never mind, I'm not sorry), but go check us out on Facebook - there are some preview pictures - and if you're in the Chicago area this weekend, come see a show!
Part the Second
April 1st is so close - so close. That is the date by which all the universities I applied to will have told me their decisions. I am SO READY to start this new part of my life, and can't wait to finally know where I'm going to be this August.
April can't come soon enough. :-)
I still have a few more interviews and scholarship apps to wrap up. Compared to the last five months, though, it's going to be a piece of cake.
Part the Third
F. Scott Fitzgerald has a spectacular way with words. I always loved The Great Gatsby, but I've recently was listening to two of his short stories in the car - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and A Diamond as Big as the Ritz - and gosh, he is a remarkable writer. The way he can describe entire scenes or emotions with just a few words - and without ever using a single cliche - makes me so happy. I get so happy when I read good writing.
Part the Fourth
It snowed today. Again. And I skidded into the curb - TWICE - on my way to rehearsal. The ice is crazy.
And it was so warm on Friday! Why, Mother Nature - WHY!?
(This is another reason why April can't come soon enough...)
This has become the defining photo for Winter 2013-14 in the Midwest:
And so I leave you, my good readers, with all the random bits and pieces that make up my life right now.
Ultimately, I wrote this rather long blog post as an excuse to not write any more blog posts this week.
