It’s 10 o’clock, and I’m in my room waiting for the cafeteria to open.. bah, only one more hour now, so hang in there! I woke up at 8, which probably had something to do with the fact that I went to bed at 10 p.m. yesterday. (6:30 a.m. workouts tend to do that to you)
Today I’ll move all my stuff into my new room. Oh, I think maybe I forgot to tell you why — there’s a water leak from the window in the one I have now. (Which shouldn’t be a huge problem, given that it only rains like four days each semester here — but I’d rather have a room without mold in it).
Last selfie in this room:
Yesterday I went to the movie theater to watch “Paper Towns.” I’m almost embarrassed I haven’t already seen that one — It’s getting kinda “old” now. Usually, I watch every movie that comes out within two days of its premiere… I don’t know which of the two are the most embarrassing actually… This past summer I was simply too busy, and the tickets were very expensive in Norway. So I better catch up now that I’m in the US! It was okay by the way, not as great as I had been hoping for, but ok.
Hmm… So what else is new?
I actually performed my monologue yesterday too! (It’s been pushed forward twice, but yesterday I finally got to do it). And it was great, I really loved it haha! Here comes a confession: I did actually want to become an actress when I was younger. And back in 2012 I was just a plane ticket away from moving to LA to study at Lee Strasberg Film and Theatre Institute… But when that didn’t work out, I almost forgot about everything that had to do with acting — up until now. So in case you wondered, this is not some newly discovered interest. But to any new readers, the real reason why I take acting classes this year is so that I can take the directing classes next year.
Since my last update I’ve had a meeting with the Athletic department at Augie about the video I’m going to do for TV in November. So the interviews and shoots for the next few weeks are all settled. I also took some headshots of my friend Charissa’s grad school applications. I’ve never really done “professional headshots” before, but I think they turned out pretty well.
I should get dressed and head for brunch, so talk to ya later!
