Long Weekend

This weekend has been a long one.

Saturday, I went shopping with my roommate to find a costume for a party. I found a really cute dress for under $20 that I might actually wear again, yay! And a hat to spray paint silver. It was a board game themed party. I was a thimble, from Monopoly. So that was fun. Then I went to visit Adam for a few hours, since I haven't seen him in a while. Came back to campus, ate a quick dinner, and saw a workshop production of a new musical that had a bunch of my friends in it. It was definitely an interesting show, very jazzy and new age. After that I came home and got ready for the party, and off we went. And guess what?

The first person I saw also was dressed up as a thimble!! No fair =( but I think mine was cuter, hehe. And a couple people I talked to also said that my thimble was more effective. It was all because of the hat. The hat looked awesome.

So that was last night. Today I got up, attempted to do homework, went off to Spider Baby rehearsal for a series of two run-throughs. The first one was sucky, for me. The second one, I actually had energy, so that was better. Then I dashed back to campus for a quick rehearsal for my directing scene, which went well. Then KP rehearsal. Then some recording of music for a friend. And then, just for kicks, I recorded an audition video for Glee.

It's absolutely terrible and I didn't really even try. But hey, why not? It's the internet age. It's what you do!

So that was my weekend. Now it's 12:15, I'm exhausted, and I have internship applications to fill out, papers to edit, and a Chinese oral final tomorrow. Ugh... This should be a long week. But at least it's the last week of classes! YES!!!

Weekendly Update

The weekend has been pretty uneventful so far. I slept in two days in a row... which is delightful!! Watched a lot of TV via Netflix--I love the Instant Watch that Netflix does. I also got a cool thing for the Wii that lets me watch Netflix using the Wii, which I love. It works really well, which was surprising--I didn't think it'd work. But it does! Which is awesome!

And bad. Because I've watched a lot of TV these last few days. But it's for my education... right? Because I have to be educated in acting... Right? Right?

(Of course, this argument makes no sense because I'm watching stuff that's been canceled for years. But that's a minor detail.)

Other than that, I've had a rehearsal for my directing scene which went really well. I thought of a pretty creative way to create the set-well, I think it's creative, and the cast seems to enjoy working on it, so I'm happy. Maybe it's dumb. It probably is. But I like it, so yay!!

I also saw an SOT show tonight. It's one of the Blueprints--shows that are new works by the Playwriting Grad students, performed by USC students. The shows are still in development, so they aren't anywhere near being done. It's just about getting an audience in there and seeing what they're seeing. So there's a talk-back with the director/author/playwriting program person after the shows. The talk-backs are always really interesting to hear. I didn't have much to say, mostly because I'm still processing the piece until at least half an hour after it's over. But it was interesting to hear these other people's thoughts on the play, and to know that they'll be taken into consideration as the piece moves forward.

Then I came home and made brownies. Yummy!!! And an egg-bagel-wich with cheese and pastrami. Also yummy!!! I love having food =)

I got a lot of work done this weekend. Not as much as I'd like to have, but a fair bit:

1) First rehearsal for directing scene #2
2) Made appointments with the Internship Adviser AND a Career Center adviser.
3) Watched the film of Spider Baby
4) Worked on directing stuffs.
5) Worked on a writing project (I'd explain more, but it's a secret =D)
6) Got Into the Woods tickets and saw it.
7) Performed for Relay for Life with KP
8) A Spider Baby rehearsal, which went really well. I got some laughs!
9) Made a birthday present CD, with a really pretty design on it.
10) Saw Adam. Which is always a good thing.

Now I just have to figure out what we're doing in the in-class-rehearsal tomorrow (ewww), revise a paper, do my Chinese homework and work on internship resume/cover letters.

I have a feeling I won't be completing all that tonight...
