General musing - I watched Red Dragon yesterday and I can now say with absolute certainly that Hopkins is wonderful in that whole film series, if you can call it that.
If I were on my laptop, this would be a read more but I’m not so it’s not and this is going to be long. Things have happened: last, last Thursday I had a LAMDA lesson and Ian said my monologues were coming on well (!!!), the next day this Opera singer came in and did a ‘master class’ and she said I had theatre potential! That was so lovely, I really think I’ve improved since she last saw me three years ago. Last week is a little bit hazy and that’s probably not a good sign. On Saturday I went to the Guildford School of Acting open day and it was nice apart from the glares from everyone, I get that’s it’s a competitive industry but nothing’s happened yet, kids, calm down. It does seem like a lovely place though. I could’ve missed it altogether though. My train was delayed and my dad (as a signaller, it would be odd otherwise) was talking to the guard and he convinced him to let people off at Finsbury Park, he’s the absolute best ever, everyone who got off essentially had me to thank, you’re welcome. My friend passed her driving test today and I’m super proud of her and I feel like I should book my theory test but that would make everything quite real and that’s worrying. Everything is. I’m applying to non-UCAS places next week (terrifying) and submitting my UCAS the week after (even more terrifying). Excuse me whilst I laugh nervously/ weep profusely.
Today was super nice. I went into town to do some things (i.e. giving Topshop all my money, as per) and I got my first pumpkin spice latte of the year (!!!) and walked to the park and drank it whilst listening to AM and going out of my way to walk on crunchy leaves. I bloody love autumn. I also did some driving when it was pretty dark and that was somewhat relaxing, one of my L plates flew off though (oops). Yesterday my form tutor and her daughter came in and oh my lord she looks like a cabbage patch doll, so adorable. I’m now slightly worried about Thursday because I haven’t learnt the beginnings of my monologues (I vaguely know them so it should be fine) and I’m also worried about Friday because I’m part of a master class with this opera singer and she’s super dramatic (I’ve had one with her before, I’m not just making assumptions here) and I’m singing I Could Have Danced All Night and she’ll probably make me dance around. On the plus side, I might (huge emphasis on the might there) get my braces off tomorrow, which if it happens will be great because the inside of my upper lip isn’t enjoying them right now.
