Well, production week started two weeks ago, and our last show was exactly a week ago. Ahh I've been so busy that I haven't had any time to update at all! So much has happened recently, so I'll try my best to remember what happened during production week haha. At first I was sooo bad! Oh my god it was actually embarrassing how awful I was. But eventually I got really comfortable with the music after listening to it a billion times on repeat and practicing after school. Monday through Wednesday was pretty intense. Run the show from 5-10 after school, but on the bright side, they provided us with a lot of delicious food :) Thursday was our dress rehearsal which went by pretty quickly and smoothly. Friday was opening night! Holy crap I was sooo nervous standing there before the show, looking out at the sea of people. For the past three years I've manned the spotlight in crew, safety tucked away out of everyone's sight, sitting in my little spot up in the catwalk, but this year I had to stand in front of everyone in the pit, right in front of the stage. Haha if I could barely do that, I can't imagine what it must feel like to actually be on stage! I'd probably faint from fright, which is saying a lot since I've never fainted before in my life. But that's beside the point. Anyway, it went pretty well! After the show, two former drumline guys came to congratulate me and victor on a job well done. They're both sophomores in college now, and I was surprised when one of them hugged me. I had the biggest crush on him a couple years ago when we went to school together haha. Then we went to TGIF's for food since we were starving, and I got this delicious spinach bread stuff and chicken with tomato and mozzarella. I was going to post more food pictures on here, but I decided that pictures of the show would probaaaably be more exciting (though I did include a picture of cookies from the cast party). I got a ride home around 1 am, and didn't realize that my car was still at the school until they were driving away, so I had to call and ask them to come pick me up and drop me off at the school haha, I'm so stupid. -_-.
