Forcing myself to do one more post before I go to bed…
My head is swimming, so much to do and think about… it gets hard to concentrate when I get like this.
Thursday I left my parents house and headed back to Seattle for the night since I had my acting workshop. It turned out to be a pretty fun class, we did improv the whole time, and it was cool to get some creative juices flowing. I don’t typically think of myself as very funny, but it’s rewarding to be able to work with a group of talented people that don’t judge, mostly because they’re making fools of themselves as well.
There are very few “safe” places like that any more. About half way done with classes, I need to get working on memorizing my monologues!
If I were to describe this day in one word, it would probably be “shredding”.
Now before your mind wanders off to wonder what that could mean, let me explain…
In an effort for this family to go “paperless” this year, we have started going through all of our old paperwork that we have been carrying around for years, (my boyfriend, Jason’s, having the majority of that load), and getting rid of it.
This has actually turned into quite an entertaining activity for Sofie, who has taken to putting things into our little paper shredder. In fact, she spent over an hour at it today. And hey, I’m not complaining! If it’s going to keep her busy and happy, I’m all for it. Plus! We’re getting rid of all of our paper clutter around the house, it feels pretty good. Soon enough, we’ll have an easy, paperless, streamlined life, and I think the environment will thank us for it.
Other than that, my first acting workshop/class was tonight! So I went out for a couple of hours this evening to attend. The members of the class were all introduced today and we did the usual “first-day-of-class-getting-to-know-each-other” type of stuff. I have to admit, I did have a good time though. It’s been a while since I’ve been a part of any sort of “class” or organized group of people like that, it took today’s experience to kind of remind me of how much I missed it. It’s nice to feel like I’m a part of a group outside of my family and working realm…
Looking forward to what we’ll do next week!
Well, I guess that’s it for today! I have a lot that I’m planning for this blog, especially in terms of expanding my writing and what I cover here, and I think it’ll be good, so I’m going to be working on that the next couple of days as well. Hope you all are able to stay tuned for that!
