Things that are infuriating:
Doing taxes returns from another continent. This situation is screaming for a coffee and a valium.
Théâtre de Complicité and Simon McBurney-
I need to work for you. Dear God, if there is one thing I want to do in this world, its to work for you.
Just finished figuring out my schedule for classes till I graduate. As it stands right now I am going to finish off my last semester senior year with a major in Educational Theatre and a minor in Dramatic Literature as a part time student with only 7 whole credits. Student teaching a few times a week and Drama in Education II. Talk about saving money and getting a start on your life.
I'm a Buddhist. I'm a nudist.
Teetering on the line.
About three weeks ago I went to go see In the House of Bernarda Alba set in Iran. I was excited to see the show because, if anyone knows the story line, I thought the issues were relevant to Iranian culture. Instead, I was offended as it was a bunch of white girls making such a bold statement about not only Iran, but Islamic culture. Every actor, except the lead, was white and wearing the hijab...
Nothing. Seriously. Nothing.

I'm writing this paper a whole week early.
And I have three books out from the library on how to direct Shakespeare, Brecht’s Brecht on Theatre, and a whole book of critical essays on Midsummer Night’s Dream. And I’m actually not dreading it at all like I have for any other essay this semester. Things I need to incorporate into my future: acting, directing, Shakespeare/ Elizabethan history.

Best run EVER.
New record. 3.52 miles at 27:10. That’s an average 7:45 minute mile. Feeling GOOD.

London, this is so not like you and I’m totally okay with that.
Woke up. Not at all hung over.
Surprised, elated, grateful, shocked.
I can’t give much away, but… One of my professors works with Punchdrunk Theatre (the creators of Sleep No More) and they are trying out a new project. They were looking for volunteers to try it out so naturally I had to go. Basically, they gave me an iPhone and you run around a landscape for 6 or more hours to find clues. Every time you find a clue it leads you to another station in...

aliru: According to a new study from Middlesex University, not many participants could distinguish correctly between quotes from British “Lad mags” and quotes from interviews with convicted rapists. This is really disturbing. If you think that rape culture and violent attitudes toward women don’t exist, read this now.
Oh Lord. Now this paper.
I’ve been dreading this moment for the past week.
You're welcome, again.
I don’t mind clutter. I don’t. I just mind dirt. I don’t want to live in a space with bits of onion on the ground. So probably about four or five times a week I wind up doing every dish in the sink. Its not that I care if you leave your dish in the sink, but honestly people, just clean it up in an hour or so. What you don’t realize is that we only have one cutting board,...
Very vivid lucid dreaming.
I’ve always had lucid dreams before, but last night was something new. I even started asking the people in my dreams if there were real or just in my imagination. One person, who I know well, told me that they weren’t sure if she was real or not and then proceeded to tell me what time she thought it was; “its 5:30am,” she said. I woke up immediately after and looked at my...
Womp. False alarm.
Apparently it costs £110 to change the name over on the ticket, which is ridiculous. I was looking into going to Ireland over spring break and could get roundtrip tickets and hostels for a full week for that price. So, I’ll just wait to go to Ireland over spring break.
I might be in Ireland this weekend. Let me say that again. I might go to Ireland this weekend! One of my friends was going with a bunch of people for St. Patty’s Day. One of them dropped out and they offered me the FREE FLIGHT. I don’t know if I’ll have to pay for the hostels or not but whatever. A free flight is a free flight. I’ll have to miss three classes, but I could...

It feels good to be needed.
I really appreciate that you emailed me. It feels great that you want me to perform with you again. You are great. I literally just can’t live in Rhode Island another summer. I’m so sorry. But then, back in NY, all the theatres only want me as a SM. There is something so so wrong with this. Its time to start making the name I made for myself back home in nyc.
I will be so happy if I just get one thing done...
Just one of all the things I have due next week. Because so far all I’ve done today is do a tiny bit of research, steal toilet paper and fill out my housing form.
I was going to get my gym membership today,
then I woke up with the sorest arms I’ve ever had. I actually can’t extend them all the way. I just don’t understand why it took 48 hours for me to feel soreness. I work out on Wednesday, I can’t move on… Friday? On the plus, the swelling on my wisdom tooth has gone down and I no longer talk as if I have cotton balls in my mouth. I guess the pain had move somewhere...
Slept for over 11 hours
woke up to the most painful wisdom tooth ever. The whole side of my face is swollen. Ohhhh Lordy. I need to get this taken out!
On waking up early:
I am finding, more and more as I get older, that the morning is the most spectacular part of a day. Its not even noon yet and I have gone for a 3.5 mile run, made breakfast, cleaned my room and kitchen, showered, found some new recipes, and went grocery shopping for the week. It seems every morning is filled with possibility. Its the very beginning of a new day. Its like a mini New Year. You can...
Lazy, rainy, London Sunday.
