...so yea, if you've seen my latest post, then you knew how busy I was gonna get. You also probably figured out why I was offline for a couple days. Because if I had been online for more than a few minutes, I would have been distracted. I was online from school, but I was doing homework. :-p So...sorry guys! You guys have been pretty good, though. =)
Wednesday started off well enough with my jazz class, and then home for a break. Then I had my quiz, which turned out slightly better than I had thought!
....and then there was the taping. The drive there was a little long since there was traffic on the way there, and it was raining! D'oh! I knew I forgot to bring something...an umbrella! :p But that was minimal. The show went very smoothly, and I thought I did an excellent job...much better than the last taping. Everyone was on that day, my facial expressions were dead on, my kicks were very well, and I even got a prize. :p Even during our "live commercial," I thought I did a good job rushing things when I saw the people in the back spinning their arm around, motioning that I needed to pick up the pace and end the scene soon. It was quite funny. =D All in all, very good taping...although when I thrown down in the last segment, my glasses kinda got bent, but I bent them back in place, no problem, right? So they were slightly bent, but I got them back, and all was good. Of course, I had to take my glasses off anyway, since it was raining quite a bit after the taping, and it would be pointless for me to leave them on while it's raining outside...ESPECIALLY since I didn't bring my umbrella. So after a couple slices of celebratory pizza, I got to my car, and when I tried to take my glasses out of my pocket....
...drop, snap, crack...AAAAAAAAAH! I was giving Ben a ride back to the apt. for the "production meeting/viewing party" and his reaction was, "Uh oh....."
Yeah, my glasses broke. =( The irony was that they didn't break during the taping, but they broke AFTER the taping! LOL, I thought that was kinda funny at the time, but then I realized....I had to drive in the rain! Eeeep....so I borrowed Ben's glasses and kinda taped mine together after that. Of course, there was mads amounts of traffic, so I went 20mph most of the way. The drive there was no problem, and I had to take my laptop in my bag for "Dumb Luck." Anyway, I saw the shows from the previous couple weeks, and I thought I did well. The show I really wanted to see was the one from a couple weeks back where I thought I did a HORRIBLE job....
the show actually turned out very well on tape. There was one segment where I thought it didn't go as well....but the news scene turned out MUCH MUCH better than I thought, and that made me feel worlds better, kinda like a small monkey on my back. So, hurrah! We also got to see the show we just taped hours prior, and that turned out SO well, except that last throwdown didn't come out as well, and the kick was bleh...but overall, VERY WELL DONE! I was quite happy about that. However, I knew there wasn't a chance in hell I was going to be heading to the "WML?" stage show since it was already 7:30pm by the time we saw the last show, and I would have a little trouble trying to make my way through the night-time traffic....especially since my glasses broke. So, everyone stuck around and we discussed ideas for upcoming shows; looks like there's going to be a lot of upcoming parts for me in the episodes to come. Hurrah! I also talked to Bec about my little situation going on with "you-know-who," and she actually gave some excellent advice thatI hadn't thought about.
So after a lot of talking, it was almost 10pm, so I took off from there, got my free ice cream, thanks to Yahoo, and headed home when there was no traffic on the road. Fortunately, it wasn't raining as hard, AND I took side streets all the way home. I used Colorado Boulevard as my starting point, and then went through Pasadena, hit Route 66, and I was good from there. There were maybe 2....3 cars on the road? Yeah, I did get home quite late that night, and by the time I got home, I needed to think, "Well...what the hell am I gonna do NOW?" I had class in the morning, a huge headache, and I needed to study for a quiz that got moved to Thursday. ACK!
Fast forward after the weird dreams that were church-related, and I wake up early....not to study lines and study for the quiz...
I had to go see an eye doctor since I needed replacement glasses, but the three places we went, the doctors all had the day off.
Fortunately, we went to the Quick-Fix place, and I had to have my glasses soddered together. Even though the colouring of the frames is now slightly different, they are back together....although the frames are a bit crooked...so now every time I put on the glasses for an extended period of time, I get dizzy, or I get a headache. So....I need new glasses..or contacts! You know, everyone at the show says I should really get contacts since you could totally read my facial reactions better, and I tend to talk a lot with my eyes and my face, really. So...I'm considering getting contacts, which would be awesome, I think. Anyway, I had very little time after my glasses were temporarily put back together, so I got ready quickly, then went off to school for Masque....and that is something I shan't speak of.
I didn't do badly, but not that great. I did adeqaute, yes, adequate. I was decent enough, but not spectacular enough, so that kinda hurt me a tad, but I had to brush it off and get ready for the quiz. Studied some for that. I also had to turn in my reflections and my observations from my classroom visits, which I did...and my quiz turned out to be a LOT easier than I anticipated, so hurrah for that. After that class, I was drained...so I went home via Mission Blvd. Getting home from school is very easy on side streets, since it's mainly one main street. Anyway, I rested up some, finally got back online, even if for a short time, and then ended up going to Mosaic since I was exhausted, and kinda sick, so I didn't see Maribel. Mosaic was great, though. I didn't want to use my glasses, especially since the church is just a straight shot up Euclid Ave. So I went to church, had good times, very good discussion. It was nice. Next week, we're going bowling as a club; I'm so excited! After that, I went home, went to bed early, and had an eye appointment. Methinks I shall be getting contacts soon. So, we shall see about that.
....and now we are here....35 minutes before I have to leave for my one class of the day, which I love. So, I shall get ready for that, and I will talk to you guys very soon. Have a great day, everyone!
