Tonight was my third acting lesson and I was pleasantly surprised at my progress. More specifically, I was pleasantly surprised at my instructor’s evaluation of my progress. We only had time to record and critique the monologue from Good Will Hunting, but he seemed genuinely satisfied with my progress and with the work that I put in since my last session. I wouldn’t say I “nailed” the monologue, but I think I did very well considering how little experience I have–this was my first recorded monologue–and I was pleased to hear my instructor say that I am definitely ahead of where he expected me to be at this point.
I’m excited to continue working and I hope to see more improvement. In fact, I fully expect to see improvement from week to week; if I don’t improve, that would indicate I’m not working hard enough. I don’t think that’ll be a problem, though.
