Video and Singing.

I put together a little video of how I study and prepare for TMAs. It’s not that fascinating, but I show you what my course books are like:

I have spatial synaesthesia, which means I have a pretty good mental calendar. However, this calendar only operates on fortnights, and so much stuff is happening recently that I have given in and bought myself… a Filofax!

I’m actually really excited about getting it (I bought it off eBay), it’s super cute, look!

Last Sunday, I got an unexpected invite to go see Derren Brown’s show Svengali. One of my best friend’s sister is the manager at the Alexandra Theatre and she had some complimentary tickets left, and I got invited! This made me ever so happy, because I worship¬†Derren Brown and the only reason I hadn’t booked tickets to see Svengali was because my mom preferred to go see Legally Blonde (which we do have tickets for). We could have sat in the stalls but we went for the dress circle; what fools! Haha but seriously, he was amazing. I want to marry him. But he’s gay. Oh, such a waste!

In other news, my job has roped me into singing at the Stratford Fringe Festival¬†on Saturday 28th. People are going to pay to come see me sing songs from musicals. Like, what?! This job is just insane but I’m taking it in my stride! I’m uber excited, even if I end up only performing for my parents and 2 other people :mrgreen:

And to top it all off, my local newspaper (Solihull News) have phoned me and want to put about me in their Entertainment section! Haha it’s all so insane. So I have no idea when I will be able to study because I have far too much to do at the moment, but it’s all good!

First video blog – an overview.

Oliver! is over! We had a standing ovation on our last two performances and a NODA rep came to visit us backstage and said the performance was ‘as close to professional as you can get.’ We might win an award from them which I understand is very prestigious so fingers crossed! Here is a picture of me in one of my costumes, for your amusement:

And now for something different; a video…

Good Lord I hate watching myself. You would have thought after studying drama for so many years I would be over this by now, but no!

The lighting is terrible in this video, and for that I apologise. My bedroom has pretty rubbish lights and one of the bulbs has gone. I really ought to get on at my dad to fix that. Anyway, here is my video, which is a sort of an overview of things I have written here previously.
