I feel like I’m back in school
This week, I was to find and memorize a new monologue (I part of a scene from Ferris Beuler’s Day Off), continue working on last week’s monologue from Good Will Hunting (it turned out to be almost 4 minutes) and I continued reading How to Get the Part…. So far, this acting thing has been pretty intense and that’s exactly how I was hoping it would be. I feel like I have a lot of free time since I only work till around 4 and it’s good that I have something to fill it. I mean, I would be reading a lot anyway–I’m working through The World According to Garp and a few other books–but it’s nice to be learning a craft. I just hope I continue to improve from week to week.
Another low-sleep Sunday night
I probably got around 3 hours of sleep last night and I don’t have a good reason at all. I was in bed by 12:15 and then I spent the next six hours tossing and turning. I’m sure I got a little sleep, but I could remember looking at the clock at least once an hour during the night and I’m not a light sleeper, so it takes me quite a while to get back to sleep once I wake up. Anyway, I’m going to bed early tonight for sure.
