It's been a while since I've last post. I've been busy busy busy!
-Went to Do Work. Really really good. It's still been on my mind, the things I've learned and could apply, it's hard because you have to work from the inside out and before you can make a difference. But, I'll keep praying.
-Went to a D-Now at my friends church. I'm so glad I went. Not only was it good and I learned more from it, but I got to hang out with some girls I haven't talked to since freshman year or even junior high. And I got to get to really know them spiritually and just catch up. I had a lot of fun. It was weird becasue they're all in a 'group' or whatever and had been to these D Now's before, but they were welcoming and including me and so I really enjoyed it. And we had some good talks, I think. I met Jimmy Needham too! Got his autograph/picture (which is somewhere.) And I met Price Hill (a independent band that played for the weekend.) Talked to them some too. They were really nice and cool. But, overall, great experience.
-We blocked the whole show for UIL. And it's awesome!!! I love love love the ending. And I'm improving, which is good. The show is actually pretty much together (I mean, there is still a lot of work- but we mostly have all our lines down, blocking is done, cutting is basically done, we did the show in 52 minutes yesterday-we have to get it down to 40 by UIL, so that is really good) and we still have 6 weeks ish to make it better! In 4 weeks we go perform for Lucien (I think he's the theatre director for UT or something like that) and he will critique us and stuff. I'm nervous about that but it'll hopefully be good. And then our show is March 26. Ahhh!! I'm so excited!!
-School is getting tough. I have a 78 in English and it's bugging me because I keep getting bad grades on quizzes/ there is only one major grade in there that is a 75. We have another major grade coming in, but if I get a 75 on that one... it's going to be bad. I can't fail a class because I can't get kicked out of UIL!! (KOW) I just hate how they don't grade Major grades until the last week of the six weeks because you can't ever know until there is no more time if you'll be safe or not. Just pray for me, I guess!
