Helloooo everyone and happy Monday!! So a lot of really cool stuff has been happening these past few days and will be coming up in the near future, so I want to share all of it with you in this Monday Update: Exciting Occurrences Edition! Grab a cup of coffee, kick your feet up, and enjoy an early morning post by yours truly:
Exciting Occurrence #1) School starts today!! This semester at Tri-C, I’ll be taking Ethics, French, Comparative World Religions, and History of Civilization. I took French in high school and I was very good at it, however, because I had no one to speak it with, I lost a lot of my skills. I’m really looking forward to relearning everything that I lost as well as all of the new subtleties and nuances my class will teach me. As many of you might remember, I’m an Athiest – so why am I taking Comparative World Religions? Because it sounds interesting, sue me for it! Just because I’m a nonbeliever doesn’t mean that I’m not fascinated by the ways other people worship, so I think that this course will be a lot of fun. Similar to my religions class, I think that Ethics and History of Civilization will be a great learning experience as well. I’ve always loved history and I’m excited to explore the worlds of philosophical thinking even further with Ethics! I think that this fall semester is going to be my best one yet and I can’t wait to see what Tri-C has in store for me!
Exciting Occurrence #2) I have an audition for a play called The Boys Next Door tonight! After performing in the film, Beat The Heat, the acting bug bit me hard and now all I want to do is get back into theatre again. I browsed through the internet looking into possible auditions and unfortunately I was too late for almost all of them. BUT, I found the audition for the play that I’ll be trying out for tonight right in the nick of time, so I can’t wait to give it a shot. The audition is a cold reading, which is great, because getting into a character quickly is a major strength of mine. I also prepared an oldie but goodie monologue of mine as well, just in case! The play sounds very intriguing, as it focuses on mental health issues – which is right up my alley! There is only one female role available, so I’m really hoping that I have what this company is looking for! The only problem is, is that the theater that the play will be held at is quite far away from me, but if I get the part the drives will be totally worth it! Wish a bitch luck!
Exciting Occurrence #3) Similarly to the last Exciting Occurrence, I also have another theatre related update! I got word of a one act play festival happening this fall that is looking for original pieces to stage. Lucky for me, I wrote a play in high school, so now I have to go through and pick out two or three short scenes from the play that I think are the best and find a way to piece them together so that they fall in the ten minute range. Dwindling down the play to something so small is going to be a challenge but I definitely plan on giving it a try!
Exciting Occurrence #4) I have a boyfriend!! HURRAY! 🙂
So there you have it, this week’s Monday Update: Exciting Occurrences Edition! What is everyone up to this week? Who is starting back at school soon? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
