my new friend, Leslie recently read my other five facts you might not have known about me, thinking it was going to be “fun and cute” facts… what she got was a soul baring confession : / she wasn’t prepared, though the fact i am Korean should have been plenty of a red flag warning. So I scavenged my brain and so i got these facts. so without further ado:
I guess there are things people don’t really know about you for a reason. I’m talking about the obscure facts that are not really shared not because it is hard to fit into a conversation but deep in side its hits a nerve and strikes a chord of the heart strings. Also, I think that sharing these things time to time is good. Good for the heart and good for the soul.
Its…er…healthy I guess.
I also think its brave and I’ve been inspired by one, Lauren Candia after reading her five facts to share five of my facts that most people don’t really know about me.
But the thing about me is that I over think and I needed time to sit down and really write it out and explain, because I’ve been told sometimes people can’t really understand the jumps I make in my head. So here it is:
was insane. NaNoWriMo started yesterday and already i am so behind. not a great start.
things are going to get busier for me, as i start book club again next week- i am hoping that i can make a pretty steady, structured meet this time and take a proposal to the city center and see if i can open up a book club funded by the city because from what i have heard, the library does not do anything like that.
REHEARSALS WENT WELL! it was the second week of the rehearsal week and we had a run through and everyone told me that i was brilliant, even though i didn’t believe everyone’s comment, it was really amazing to get such a positive feed back from all the senior actors and directors. one of the best comments i received was, “you weren’t even on stage, it was just your voice but i was laughing so hard cause you delivered them so well”- made my week.
made some friends in writing club- i’m still planning that poetry reading/ fund raiser night. its more difficult than i thought it’d be, but no matter i am still working on it!!
i am excited for the coming week- i am off book and i am ready to go with the more physical aspects of the acting.
money has been tight… nothing new there- and my dad hasn’t been well physically or mentally. My grandmother has been getting steadily worse, so we’ll see what we’re going to do.
i’ve learned to take the good with the bad together, not to simply focus on one thing but all of them together as a whole. its easier to swallow the bad bits that way and better to ground you down to humility and reality.
rehearsals went well, i think- i bonded kinda with my cast mates and directors and i am excited for next week
poetry reading went well, they had a lot more questions for me than i thought they would- at one point i lost track of the questions so i just went, “poetry is awesome hashtag win” … and i did the little hashtag sign with my fingers… because i’m lame
ANYWAYS i am almost off book on all my scripts- which isnt much i admit, but still i am pretty excited. one of the plays is now confirmed to be set in the 50′s- so im looking forward to all them poodle skirts
it was fun and at the same time i was ridiculously nervous. i’m not sure why i was so nervous, it was just a read through but i feel this constant anxiety like “oh fuck, they are going to realize that they mis-casted and they need someone else” Continue reading →
