I have a lot going on. As much as I like being busy sometimes I think I take on too much. Right now I’m stage directing a play that has at least two weeks left to go and I am taking an extra course so I’m taking 12 credits, teaching, stage directing…oh! and the director also put me in the show. I enjoy doing everything single thing I’m doing but holy crap it’s tough to read and write while your making sure the scene changes are going well in the dark.
I think once this play is over I’ll be ready to focus on this semester but right now I have a list of props that we still need and we open in less than a week. I’m also thinking a lot about scene changes I was being yelled at all day by the director and it feels good to be back in my house where it is quiet and I can sit and just decompress.
I feel like I really need to do my writing and reading. I have to have a novel read by tomorrow evening and another 100 pages to read for Tuesday and then practice, reading writing and so it continues. I am not complaining I promise I signed up for all this but suddenly I feel like I went through a buffet and took a little bit too much of everything.
Right now I could really use a few things:
1) A hug from my other half
2) Someone to tell me I’m going to make it. (I am going to make it because failure is NOT an option)
3) A high five.
4) And a beer.
Well, I should go read. So much to do, so little time.
There is a song by Rilo Kiley, it’s old but it’s wonderful and one of the lines says:
“But you’ll fight and you’ll make it through
You’ll fake it if you have to
And you’ll show up for work with a smile”
This is exactly how I feel.
