Episode 65: First Official Rehearsal

Woke up later than usual, but still got to George's seminar around the same time that I normally do, which seems to suggest that perhaps I actually need less time to get prepared in the morning than I currently allocate for myself. Hadn't managed to print out my written work for today, which is just as well, since after hearing everyone else who read, I'd have been really embarrassed to read mine aloud. I did volunteer to read a piece of writing towards the end, which was a rather interesting piece of scientific writing, if I might say so. Have yet to decide what area of science I'm going to research and write on, since it's difficult to find something that I know nothing about, precisely because it lies outside of my awareness, but also because I happen to know a fair bit about quite a few areas of science that would perplex the average person. Not bragging or anything, it's just the way it is. I mean, there was a point in the past where I seriously considered doing 'A' Level Chemistry, and my first piece of researched work in Primary 4 was on black holes, so you can't blame me for being a bit of a science geek. Shall have to give it some thought once I'm done with my 'Howl' essay.

We also had our first official rehearsal today for The Culture Project, which saw us changing venues several times because we hadn't actually booked a room, through no fault of our own. It was pretty fun, watching the actors interacting. The last thing they did was perform a sketch, portraying a Facebook profile. I thought that was really clever, the way they managed it, especially since towards the end, they were apparently improvising on the fly. I'm glad everyone's getting excited about the play, and I'm starting to have ideas of what the narrative of the play will be, but I probably won't hammer out anything concrete until December. That's because I am now trying to write my essay! Have managed to sort out the introduction, but I don't think I'll get much done by tonight, since my best work seems to be produced only under conditions of great pressure. Then I promise myself not to do it that way the next time, but invariably do. What I need is to fail an assignment and then maybe I'll learn my lesson.
