So one of the things that I was "priviledged" to experience for the first time is: auditions...but, at college. We arrived Thursday afternoon. Before the night was over, I had signed up for choral auditions and for Annie vocal auditions and movement auditions.

So Friday came, and while I wasn't really nervous about the choral audition, I was a little jittery. Needless to say, I feel fine about my audition. It wasn't perfect, but it was the best I could have done under the present circumstances :)

So then came Saturday, and with it the Annie vocal auditions. I wasn't even jittery about this one..I was planning to sing Never Fully Dressed, and that's no big deal, and I had picked one of the monologues to read, and that was no big deal. So I went, and sang, and read, and it was no big deal. I think I did fine.

And this afternoon I have movement auditions. I'm not really concerned about these auditions either. So I guess the purpose of this post is to tell you all that I am staying busy and finding groups to audition for, and it's not really not stressing me out :)

jenna, stop procrastinating and give the good people an update!!

Alright...I'll begin to fill you in.

I am at school - Harding University - and I begin classes on Monday. I just got here on Thursday, and already I have auditioned for the choral programs and for the homecoming musical, Annie (well, the vocal audition...I have "movement" auditions tomorrow). I am moved into the dorm and mostly settled. My roommate, Molly, is fabulous...we are currently jamming out to Justin Bieber.

Okay...I'll continue later.

over for now

And, just like that, it's over. Well, the show itself isn't over, but I am now relaxing in the basement, sipping tea, waiting quietly until curtain calls. I believe I have been in at least one show on the OAT stage 8 out of the last 10 years. This is my home. I love the people here. I love the ugly mountains painted on the basement walls. I love the creepy artwork in the dressing rooms. I love the nasty rug that is always super grody. I love the smell of the building. I love the bat that makes appearances from time to time.

I'm really looking forward to working with new people with new ideas in a new space with new smells and new quirky things. I'm just really, really going to miss being home.

I have yet to cry. I had thought that I might cry on stage, but in the heat and adrenaline of the moment, I did not.

It's not over, I keep telling myself. It's just over for now.

So, in the near future look for some blogging on the following topics:

- Little Prairie Bible Camp

- college approaching much too rapidly

- the Crucible..yeah, I know, you're sick of me blabbing about it, but I can't help it!

- maybe I'll finish posting about our June vaca...we really did make it all the way to Deer Valley!

...and some other stuff. I'm at the theatre now, waiting around until it's time to go back on stage.

I love my life.
