My first blog post. And I have no idea what I’m doing.
Exceedingly proud and anxious for this opportunity to open myself to my friends, my community and a bunch of strangers. Who knew this is where I’d be after two years returned to the theatre. I didn’t. But have faith and hold true, this is going to be an adventure for the both of us.
I’d like to begin by saying in the ‘middle’ of this post – a dog came into my theatre’s green room. His name is Wilson and he’s probably the cutest puppy that could possibly be owned – a golden retriever who resembles Dug from Up.
The above is probably the epitome of how these posts will go moving forward – it’s the perfect example of my writing style. A continuous stream of consciousness. Broken up. Nonsensical. Entertaining.
I apologize going forward whether or not any of it makes sense because it most likely will not. I don’t have a plan. I don’t know what I’m doing. Several of my friends have blogs and they have plans and drafts and things to talk about.
What am I going to talk about? I don’t know. Let’s think about this together, shall we?
- What do you want to get out of this, or rather – what do I want you to get out of this?
I’d like you to understand and gain some insight into how a director comes to be – how the decision occurred (as well as why) and how I am going to move forward in my career.
- What do you want to see me write about?
This blog will primarily focus on things that improve and clarify my vision as a director. What inspires my costume designing for shows – why is that green so important to the show? (Trust me, it is extremely important to have the right green – it’s a tricky color; blog post coming soon).
- Why is she talking about her trials with graduate school again?
It’s important to understand the time management, proper planning and introspective thinking that occurs when directing – and aside from those persons who get paid to do it, it’s usually done on a volunteer basis. On top of their regular jobs. I have technically two jobs – I work full time for a financial firm and I am a full time student earning two graduate degrees. It’s a lot of time and dedication that goes on in the background of my real life.
Eventually I’ll be done graduate school. I don’t know what I’ll do with all of my free time. Probably have even more time to dedicate to my theatric endeavors.
I think that’s a good start. I hope you’re excited. I’m nervous but excited. Did I already say that? Probably, but it’s still true and even more scary as I get ready to click update and submit!
