I read the email wrong. The Coronation Ball is in the next 3-4 weeks, but they don’t know the date yet. The actual pageant is on the 24th o January.

Tomorrow, Monday, I have rehearsal in the evening at 6, but I think I’ll throw a workout in the middle of the day or in the morning, if I can get up early.

Tuesday is crazy busy. Tennis class 8-9:30, but I leave at 6:45, work 12-4, but I leave 11:45, and rehearsal 6-8, and I leave for that at 5:30.

Wednesday is work 12-4 and church 6-9:30.Maybe a workout in the morning.

Thursday is rehearsal 6-8 and nothing on Friday. But I’ll try to go running.

Yep. Nothing too exciting for me this week. Just the usual. Work, tennis, and rehearsal.

This blog is starting to be just an anything blog.

I’m brainstorming a longer post. It will be up soon.

Finished the first two rehearsals of A Christmas Carol! And it was actually kinda fun. The first scene I’m in is about 2 minutes long. I think I might end up falling off stage after that scene. I am running in circles for half of that scene. The next scene I;m in is nearly the last one, after Scrooge wakes up and he asks the bot to buy the giant turkey at the butchers. I’m in that scene for like 45 seconds. I need to have all my lines memorized by next Monday, in 3 days. I don’t know if I can do that. I have such a hard time memorizing things. Horrible time.And I only have 13 lines in the whole play. You have no idea how nervous I am. I get scared just thinking about what the performances will be like.

The only plus side I can think of right now of this is that I can take some new head shots and pictures once I get my costume and I figure our how to do my hair. It will be a really good thing to show that I can do different looks and time eras.

I picked up an extra shift on Saturday, 8 hours closing.

In 10 days, I’ll be traveling or in San Diego at my brother’s Marine Boot Camp Graduation. I really, really hope I don’t have rehearsal that night. I think I’ll just say I can’t go to the rehearsal. Oh. So when Jordan is here on his camp break, I am stealing him and going to two movies with him. Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Chasing Mavericks. I went to the first part of Breaking Dawn with him at midnight, so we are going to go again with our older sister. The movie Chasing Mavericks is about surfing.

I have some serious exercising in my future. I don’t remember if I said it yet or not, but I got the coronation ball date. It’s in January and I have been slacking. I have more time than I thought, however. I thought it was going to be 2 weekends ago, but now I have almost 3 months. I’ve already lost 5 pounds, but you wouldn’t know it if you saw me. It’s only 5 pounds.

Anyway. I’ll be going to SoCal soon, and although it isn’t for acting, I’m still excited to go.

I was planning on not being in the winter play of A Christmas Carol put on my MPA. Like, I was planning on not. Not just not doing it, but planning on not doing it.

I was at tennis and my mom comes up and says Paul Tischer, the director, specifically requested I audition for a part that hasn’t been filled yet. I really didn’t want to, but I did. I went against my older sister and my mom and I got the part.

I am now playing the part of Ruth in A Christmas Carol. *sigh* I know it will look good on my resume and I am going to do it. But after my bout of stage fright on the last show I did just a few months ago…

And, I have lines. About 8 or somewhere around there.  I don’t mind having lines in a movie or on screen, but it is so different in stage. The audience is there watching you. In film, the audience isn’t there. They see a recording of your best performance. If you mess up on stage, that was that. You can’t try again.

Not my dream in acting. I want to be filmed.

I don’t want this to be a bad experience because I have stage fright. I just need to think and believe I can do this. And I will be right.

Let’s see how this pans out, shall we?
