So the show is over. Always a slightly sad time when a show comes to an end. Of course, anytime something takes up over two months of your life and then suddenly ends...it's makes you sad. Hello, faire.

Anyway. This was my eventful day stuck inside:

1. Spent 8 hours finishing my EVIL EVIL EVIL theatre history paper. But it's done. And went to get it bound at Kinko's

2. Put the finishing touches on the Psychology project due tomorrow (actually, Korey is still working on his part, but mine is finished.)

3. Finished a paper about the play for my scene design class including: play analysis, character analysis, location description (for all 33 scenes), and an alternate design idea.

4. Thought about doing my research for Critial Literature on Wednesday, but thought better of it.

So...I'm exhausted. Oh yeah, I made soup in breadbowls somewhere in there!

So today in one of my classes, this was a direct quote from the professor:

"Vote for Harold Ford. We don't vote for Corker because he's a cracker."

What the hell? If a white teacher said that same sort of comment in a class of all whites and two blacks, they wouldn't have a job anymore.

Oh, she's getting reported. I don't think anything will happen.

Yesterday I filmed that music video. It took all (emphasis on the all) day long. Unfortunately, after it was done, there was no point in going to work, since it was the time I was leaving work anyway. That made me feel really bad. And then I had to go to rehearsal.

Luckily, the scene in the video was a funeral, so it wasn't hard to look sad while being sick.

Tech rehearsals start tonight...so tonight will be a really really long rehearsal. There are about 160 cues in the show...and it's not even a 2 hour show. Fun fun.

At least I am mostly better though!

It's easy to see when someone is talking about you. Trying to hide it only makes it obvious. I don't read over shoulders, and I try to make everyone happy. Aparently, that really isn't enough in this world anymore.

Sometimes it is really depressing to not be the "pretty one" or the "sexy one".

Sometimes it seems more and more like no matter how much I accomplish in my life, and no matter how great those accomplishments are...they always get overruled because I'm not the "pretty one" or "sexy one". Subjectively speaking, of course. Although, no matter how subjective, it's the truth. And it sucks.

By the way, I have an agent. But does that really matter? Oh, and the show that has been kicking my ass for about two months opens next week. But that probably doesn't matter much either.

I have a history paper to work on.

So yesterday was...interesting.  It was really fun to see in real life how a movie comes together.  I've studied it for years and talked to people about it, but I finally got to actually experience it.

So the first scene we did yesterday was a locker room scene.  They filmed it from 12 angles and shot at least 5 takes each.  So that took about 5 hours.  However, I got r-e-a-l-l-y good at walking from the trash can, to the sink, over to the lockers, listening to the teacher, and leaving the locker room.

Then the fed us Taco Bell.  Well the extras anyway...the main cast got catered stuff.

Next they filmed a cheerleading camp scene.  Yes, I was a cheerleader.  Luckily, they only filmed a wide shot of this, but still did about 12 takes.  So it only took about 2 hours.  Again, I got really good at being peppy with that little eight-count cheer!

So all in all, it was a good day.  Sometime to put on my resume for sure.  The only bad part of the day was that morning...when I was backing out of my driveway...and a tree limb caught the lights on my Jeep....and now I have to get the light bar replaced.  Darn it.

I slept through my first class this morning because I was so worn out from yesterday.  I'm still exhausted.  Oh well.

Fall break is over.  Even though it really wasn't much of a break....but it's all good.  Saturday night I performed at the Heritage Ball as Lady Anne Percy, Countess of Northumberland.  That was a lot of fun...and really good food!  Sunday I headed home for the rest of my "break".  I got caught up on my Scene Design midterm project.  I had to redraw about half of my scale drawings because I'm OCD and I just had to.  Then I wrote my English paper....fun fun.  And somewhere along the way we cut out Korey's second candy corn costume because the first one just didn't work right...and I think I might have slept somewhere in there.

And then it was Wednesday.  I hate that Fall Break is so short....just not enough time to do the work and then take a break!  And to top that all off...midterms are ALWAYS the week after the break...so I've got a bunch of tests/projects to get done by Tuesday.

I have an english test Friday, a psychology project due Tuesday, a monologue due Tuesday, my scene design project (which I'm not sure when it's due), some weird silent midterm in my stage movement class (????), and a test in history that the professor doesn't even know about.  Argh!!

I can't wait for Thanksgiving.

However...on a lighter note...this coming Sunday I get to film a movie as "High School Girl #9" in Fayetteville.  And hopefully I have an interview on the 27 with a talent/modeling agent here in Nashville.  So...we'll see.

So I had a psychology test today.  I think I did okay, but you know how that goes....  If you think you did well, you did horrible....and if you think you did horrible, you did well.  It's the vicious cycle of college.

On a lighter note, we watch "V for Vendetta" in stage movement today...we were supposed to be watching V's movements.  But we still got to watch it.

My parents came up yesterday.  We went to the Egypt exhibit at the Frist.  Very interesting.  They had an audio tour thing, and it was quite fun.  My favorite part of the tour was the recreation of the Pharoh's tomb with all the writings and everything and the tour explained all the stuff written on the walls.

Then we wandered around downtown before our dinner at The Melting Pot.  Honestly, if you have never eaten at The Melting Pot...GO!!  I love it, it is so good and so much fun.  That would be a great place to have party or something.  But, it was fun.

During our ventures down town, we wandered into the Flag Shop to get a present for my grandma.  I thought you'd all get a kick out of my newest decorations courtesy of the Flag Shop.

Well, it looks like a beautiful day outside.  But I'm sitting in a little dark room.  Still sick.  I had to leave rehearsal early because I was hurting so bad.  I'm not going to any classes today, in a desparate attempt to get better before rehearsal tonight, and the plane to Wisconsin tomorrow.

Ugh.
