Road Rage and Acting

Thanks a lot for the response on my previous post! Every single vote helps, so please know that it’s greatly appreciated.

Right now I’m sitting inside the yearbook office preparing my final spread for the 2015-2016 edition of Edda. I also just finished up my two last papers for the semester. My 17-page script analysis of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, that I’ve been dreading for weeks, is finally done. I don’t like homework, but the only way I can make it disappear is to actually do it, so I always end up working ahead of the course schedule — which in return gives me an early summer vacation, yay!

The other day, Karen, Brittany and I were talking about love and relationships, and I said that I wasn’t sure I’d even have time for a relationship right now. Then Brittany said: “You’d have time — if you didn’t always work three weeks ahead of your homework.” I guess she’s right… But since my love life is non-existent at the moment I might as well, haha.

Now I should head out to my car and run through my monologue while driving to Wal-Mart. That type of multi-tasking may seem rather odd to some of you, but the thing is that I have to go get some groceries, AND I have my acting final on Saturday. The piece I’m performing is so loud I can’t rehearse it inside the dorms — unless, of course, I want someone to call Campus Safety — so the car seems like a more appropriate rehearsal location. You know, if someone pulls up in the lane next to me they’ll just assume it’s a severe road rage going on, and that’s pretty normal, right?

Oh, you think acting is weird? Yeah, me too.

But I love it.
