runawayskellum: Toph, Sokka and Aang on a crime spree (Default)

Hello Dreamwidth! It's been a while since I posted, and I thought I would update.

I started a blog over at wordpress.  I've been writing about my decision to go to drama school - or, at least, my decision to try to get into drama school - but sometimes I get distracted and write about how Theresa May is ruining my life.  I've been going to a weekly class at the Conservatoire and auditioning for things and going to see shows and ~networking~, it all feels grown up and a little unreal.

I also got a new job, also at the Conservatoire, so I'll have fun being there six days a week for the next year.  I had to sit  a written test to display my minute taking skills and I negotiated with HR over my salary.  Then I got a part in a play (profit sharing! That's almost like getting paid!) and turned 26.

I went to a reunion for the drama group I went to as a teenager.  It was pretty surreal.  I don't know whether I'm more weirded out by the people with successful acting and production jobs or by the people with babies and medical degrees and commercial pilot licenses.  We sat around singing three-part harmonies (me with my eyes screwed up because harmonising is the hardest thing in the world to me, urgh) and slowly working our way through songs from the shows we'd done together until there were just a few of us left, the oldies, singing mangled Gaelic hymns.
