After dinner we had ice cream! Delicious ice cream. It's actually warm in Butler (as you can see I'm only in a T-shirt!) so you can eat ice cream without freezing. I had to then rush off because I was going to rehearse my directing piece for class the next day. I was SO nervous. I've never properly directed anyone before - no idea what I'm doing. It went well I think but I'm not sure I'll be able to deliver what our lecturer wants. I mean I'm sure he'd love it if I got my female actors naked onstage rolling over one another but that doesn't really fit with Streetcar.
The next day (Thursday) I went to class. We were spending the whole day just rehearsing and directing our pieces which meant for me sitting and reading trying not to look upset. I'm only in one piece so I had like 2 and half hours or so of nothing. I rehearsed by piece with the lecturer watching and he took me out of the room and said the accent thing "wasn't working" so now I have to change it. Sigh. I almost broke into tears in front of him because I felt like I wasn't doing anything right and he said I shouldn't worry so much. Humph. Easy for him to say. Overall it was a pretty rubbish day but at least I looked cute in one of my new dresses! Yay!
Friday - I did my laundry. That's it. No Miranda doing laundry therefore no video. No fun. Though now I have clean sheets which is a bonus.
Saturday - today! Yay! I had to go to Roehampton today with Tamsin because we are doing a seminar on Tuesday that is worth 50%! I think it will be good though. Poor Tamsin is super sick though so I don't even know if she'll be able to do it. Roehampton library was just as hopeless as last time with unhelpful and useless staff members as far as the eye can see. Roehampton is just one big faff. Seriously. Photocopiers not working, printing card machines not working - my GOODNESS. The place begs to be lit on fire. But I maintained my sanity for the duration of the trip. Tamsin drove us there and back so we had a fun little road trip. As you can see by the pictures - England roads aren't that exciting but I felt I needed more photos for this blog.
Hopefully, I'll have something more interesting to write about in the next blog. Encouraging I know. For now - it's back to playing the Sims!
