The following blog has been reposted to my current blog to rid myself of multiple profiles and to also preserve the Idiot that was my 17 year old self.
While listening to some intensely bad music and some rather loud rock, I have decided to add a small but hopefully mildly interesting blog to this big, big blog.
After the last blog, I have found it quite hard to muster, yes muster, the energy to write another one. You know, long and full of information on a life that no one really cares about, apart from moi. Especially, when you find yourself on the computer at like 2am reading through past blogs and laughing at the "funny" things that you said. It is then that you realise, maybe my life isn't that interesting at all or it is so interesting that I don't care about anyone elses EDIT 10/10/10: Trust me, Caitlin. That is not the case here. and am rather self absorbed...I don't know about the part about not caring about other peoples lives, because to a degree, I do care. EDIT 10/10/10: Aww, here, let me get you your Nobel prize. Slightly. But the self absorbed part, yeah, definitely true. But hey, it fits what I want to do with my life rather well. In the Entertainment business, all you can do to succeed is be self absorbed. If you are not, then the chances are you don't really care about doing well. EDIT 10/10/10: Yes, if you want the wrong things from life. Wow, Caitlin. That was a really awful statement and I'm so thankful that you finally had a wake-up call a few years ago and now want different things out of life. Thank goodness for Time.
Anyways, this year has been good, but is passing quickly and at a rather good pace at the same time, so it is hard to tell, whether time is being wasted or well spent. I have been working quite a bit, I worked 5 days the other week, but since then she has slowly given me less and less shifts. This week I have 2. WOW! But I am saving a lot of money, and by saving a lot, I mean saving half and then dipping into my savings to extract more cash, which gives me no interest, so I am not getting any goodies in my account. Wah-ah. I say, Wah-ah.
Work has been good, I still get jittery when working with thy boss, but she is just so intimidating, because she is so good at what she does. But I know my deals and am actually getting faster and faster, though I supposedly short changed someone, which sucks ass. $20 dude! How do you short change anyone $20? It's just crazy. I will have to take better care of that next shift.
Progression is coming though. Last night Aaron taught me how to do the till, so that was cool. But it will take me a few more shifts to be able to do it by myself. But once I learn, that'll be so cool. Because it means, that I can help people close. And maybe one day will be able to close myself. Though I'm sure Beck does not trust me with that responsibility. And to be honest, not that I'd lie about, it's pretty much a fact, I don't trust myself with that responsibility. I still feel like a minion.
The SOE letters have come, now I actually have to get around to sending them back, so that is a bit scary. I'm feeling a bit panicky thinking about it. I'll just have to call Mum and get it sorted. I don't want to have to pay the deposit, because that will mean I'll lose all the money I've been saving in my account. So wah-ah again.
Charlie Brown rehearsals have probably been the most enjoyable of any show I've done so far. Though they have also been equally frustrating. Ideas and direction are lost quite frequently, so jokes are lost quite frequently. And we all seem to be getting annoyed at the Director, who seems in turn to be getting annoyed at us. Because, frankly, we are kind of acting like we know better. And in some cases, we do. EDIT 10/10/10: That sounds arrogant but hey, it's amateur theatre and I think some of the older members of the cast definitely knew better. But she is the director and we really should be nice to her. Once again I am the weakest link in the show. I can sing. I know that, but singing guy style is really hard. The odd thing is, I am getting the notes right, I just forget them when we all sing together, but they come back at odd times, like while cleaning a room I suddenly go: oh its ah la la, not ah la laa! You know? No? Well then be quiet and depart!!!
But it has been really enjoyable. Tracey cracks me up. And it is fun getting to know Luke, Heather and Jo. Jai is doing great, he's like the pride and joy of the group because he is the little one from Seniors who is doing so well. The only thing I do well is the stealing of the voice from the original soundtrack, so that isn't exactly a talent, more just like being a thief. But hopefully I wont be too much of a disappointment and you all will enjoy my performance.
Got the part of Mary in The Crucible, which is the part I wanted, and hopefully that girl didn't get the part of Abigail because she couldnt act. Seriously. And Abby has to be brilliant. The fact that when talking about her, I call her Abby, shows the affection I have for this character. She is not a nice person, but a great character. And during the auditions I was surprised by the love I felt for the character when all those crap people were acting her out. It was like watching a friend being tortured, that is the best way to put it. TORTURE!!!
EDIT 10/10/10: Caitlin, Modesty. Thank goodness you learned it.
I was pissed that Sarah didnt get Abigail or Mary, but then again kind of not for Mary, because I love Sarah but I wanted that part, and am glad I have it. But I felt really bad, and Sarah seemed a bit distant and I HOPE AND WISH that we are all cool. She will be brilliant at the part she did get, and I will have to work really hard else Tammy might take back my part - wah-ah! Wah-ah!
My Room is under construction, but I wonder if i should go back in there to live. Because a lot of good things have been happening while in the other room. Who knows? It will take me ages to get it together...
Anyways, the "short" Blog I was planning has turned into a long one, which I knew it would, but I knew I just had to get into the habit again. I was just out of Blog habit. And if I'm not going to keep a diary (because I haven't been lately) then thoughts must be recorded. Somewhere.
Hope your New Year is going well. Latro!
Love Always the Spiky Shooting Star and The Identical Bucket Mop.
O and BTW, Uncle Clayton has gone back to Saudi Arabia. So that is sad. But I got to go to the airport, and I was ever so excited! I love airports! I really want to fly again! I want to go to England so bad. I have to ring Gran today and organise something for next week. And Driving School too. I LOVE AIRPORTS!
