Back with a new project.
Today marks the start of a new project: fresh faces, fresh moves, fresh start.
Day one of rehearsals always gets me really nervous. How will I measure up? How will I cope? How will I fit in?
That, combined with the excitement of learning something new, is a potent mix.
I can’t go into much now – Rehearsal #1 is still 3 hours away. But the buzz is certainly kicking in.
How is this experience different from starting out at Dream Country though? Well, I will not be mentored by Char for one. And that essentially means zero familiarity and maximum anxiety. Also, Bestie is out of town for this entire duration with limited to zero contact with the digital world… which just means I’ll have to pent up all the goodness and badness of my days to come until he returns.
My nights have been wrought with all sorts of bizarre dreams. Shakespeare printed onto retro rock-styled t-shirts, lost objects found, people crowded into spaces too small… Please, all of you, fingers crossed for me!
That said, I’m headed off to Koh Samui on a four-day mission with my cameras. Already, I’m beating myself up over the 4 rehearsals and 2 French classes I am missing. Again… my high school ghosts are catching up with me. “How can you skip town? How can you miss lessons? That’s truancy!” I know. I have too many voices in my head and I give them too much credit.
In the meantime though, I know I still have to lay the Berlin spirits to rest. Right on to the next post!
