Hi guys! Qui here, and ITS BEEN FOREVER! Ok maybe not forever, I just don't post as much as Padme does.
Anyway, today, I went to a ceremony for boyscouts and they did this thing where they read from scripts. It was their way of telling us what they did over the summer to earn merit badges and stuff like that. They did it in a scripted way to avoid them rambling and people getting to bored with it. So techincally it was made to make the whole thing less..."painful" but for me as an actor it was VERY painful. Oh my gosh.
I guess I can't really sympathize with people who don't speak or act well, just cause I've never been that person. But, it was KILLING ME. The whole time I was thinking things like, "Cheat out! I can't hear you you're mumbling! Read it with more feeling? There should have been a beat there. That was too long a pause." etc. etc.
So, good for them for actually getting up there and doing that, but still. Maybe I'm just kind of snobbish about that.
Any updates on my acting stuff? None. I've had NONE. It really upsets me, and I feel sorta empty inside. ;-; I'm swamped with dance and school and then my brothers do alot of other extracurricular activities. I'm pretty pathetic. I search the web for monologues and I preform them in front of my mirror as if I'm doing it for an audition or drama class or something. *sigh* I can barely watch movies or tv without getting jealous of the actors. So yes, I'm pathetic.
Lets talk about something happier? Dance! :D I love dance! Both of my dances are beautiful, and as are the songs. For contemperary we are doing Winter Song by Sara Barellies and Ingrid Michaelson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67xr_KKPTHE) and then for ballet we are doing "Veni, Veni, Emmanuel" which is O Come, O Come, Emmanuel in latin. It's totally accapella and very pretty.
Well, thats about it for me today.
