I’m doing this for the enjoyment, but I feel like that is what high school is for. I feel shows are more for theatre majors. I mean it’s educational theatre, seems kinda serious to me. Obviously, theatre majors enjoy what they do, but i’ve been thinking a lot lately. Maybe college theatre isn’t the place for me because I’m not a theatre major or even a minor.
Anxiety for this audition is mounting and thats the reasoning behind the second guessing, but at the same time its not.
This is the dream i had last night, its kinda long so if you’re not interested, scroll down quickly haha. Sorry if some stuff gets repeated, i wrote it down just as i woke up and wanted to remember as much as possible, so i didn’t revise much.
Okay so it was like a movie that started at the end then you rewind time and you see the events that lead up to that and then you re-watch the end. FDR was there for some reason. So it starts with FDR driving his car through our garage and through this building or something that was across the street from the house. Our house had a 2 car garage facing the street. It was white inside, very nice, wood flooring. The back yard was a steep hill leading to a lake I think.
So anyway, he drives this car, an old black thunderbird, through our garage door into the other building and some sort of explosion happens. It was like an explosion of water when he hit the window. He sacrificed himself and told us to go, though I don’t remember where it was we should go. Then it started over.
There was me, a blonde girl, my mom, Paul Goodrich, and maybe some other people. We were on an island or something and we needed to get on a boat to safety, similar to the helicopter scene in I am legend, except we rode on giant tankers. I contemplated swimming across since there was some land in between to rest on but decided it a bad idea. The reason we were leaving is because some sort of zombie apocalypse was happening.
Then I was in the white house mentioned earlier, so obviously I made it across the river. Light was something we needed. It was like if you didn’t have light, you would turn into a zombie within a few days. It was always said that when a light bulb went out, there was one less from a million light bulbs now left in the world. I imagine the human numbers were dwindling fast. We were either in the US or the UK.
I remember going so a class or something with the blonde girl and we sat in a circular room. Actually it was a religious service because she was praying on the way there.
Then I was back at the house. It was almost dark, but still very visible outside, and a light popped out and my mom shuddered and said the saying. Chad Wolfe was outside in his car with mark Hartman maybe and Geoff Alpizar. They were possessed or something, they just had this weird look in their eyes. They just sat on the street in the car for a bit. Then they drove through my garage and smashed the cars in it. They just left after that.
Then I was in a car with some guy, FDR I think, looking for some gang or something. We found them but went back. Then it was like the events started happening. We were in terrible danger since our house was exposed, so we needed to leave. FDR drove his care and I don’t know where we went, I think we just watched.
That’s my dream. It probably doesn’t sound too bad but it was pretty terrifying being in it. I mean living in a zombie apocalypse and all. Although, I never really saw zombies. Weird .I’ve had a lot of vivid fucked up dreams lately.
Theres a resort near wisconsin who always does a free opening day for skiing and snowboarding. When will it open you may ask? UH TODAY! I am so freaking pumped right now. I’ve gotten 3.5 hours of sleep. Seeing that it was open today = instant surge of energy. Paul and I just raged through the dorms in excitement. It’s gonna be a hell good day. Snowboarding, here I come!
I’m not sure if anyone else feels the same way I do, but I really miss that day of auditions for the musical. Everyone has so much energy and the hallway is absolute chaos. That day, last year, was one of the most fun days I’ve ever had.
I wonder if auditions will be similar to that up here at Northern. I guess I’ll find out in a few weeks :D
I just feel like my mind isn’t really being actively engaged, like I’m kinda lulling through this semester. I want to be challenged by things I’m passionate about. luckily, the future holds these challenges for me.

theatre seems the most challenging in my mind currently. I have to prepare a piece of a song and bring the sheet music to my audition. one issue, I don’t know how to read music for singing… this ought to be interesting. Auditions are in 20ish days, I’m already nervous and second guessing.
