At last.

Semester One is over.
It’s 5AM and I’ve just come back from an amazing day/night with my class + program lecturer.

That is all.

Finishing A Show

A post about our last show of “6 Characters in Search of an Author”! The last show is always to most emotional / nostalgic for me because… c’mon, LAST SHOW. We’ll never get to do it again! Then the next day you wake up with what I would call a production hangover and you go, “Is this real life?” and then on Monday (today) you’re like “Back to reality WHYYYY”. Being in show is where I’m the happiest. And most tormented and depressed and excited and hungry and sleepy and hyperactive. And they’re not bad feelings.

So. #OOTD on that day! (I need a full length mirror -_-)

Dress from Le Derpina, outerwear from JEANASIS, earrings from Taiwan, and I wore my Lowry’s Farm boots.

Then, you know, the moment I got to the theatre it was a flurry of warming up, putting costume on, doing hair and make-up, running around in fear, excitement and anticipation, too busy for photos! I’ll post production photos soon!

Dex, Yibao, Naina.

This is the only picture I took of people in costume that day. Yeah, I wore that, too. -sucks fats in-

After the show we all went to Bali Lane, to a place called “Nabins”. IT’S SO COSY.

Warm lights and carpets and drapes!

Georgia!

We were in a room upstairs with low tables and we sat on the floor. Very very comfy and snuggly though it smelled vaguely of feet. Probably accumulated over the years.

On our side of the table…

Fries, onion rings, calamari, fish, drumlets!

Post show-hunger, y’know?

We just sat and chilled off our production.. stress. Haha.

Yes, everyone was all snuggly and collapsed. I would have fallen asleep there.

Here, have some happy couple pictures. Hahah.

Gokul + Shaf
Kristina + Rafael (Raffles lolol)
Dex + Qiao Sen

I edited Dex/Qiaosen’s picture first, which is why it looks brighter and the colors are less yellow. Then I couldn’t be bothered anymore haha.

 Silly pictures from the rest of the night.

Then on Sunday, I went to watch COMPANY with Sherri and Wendy! Sherri and I met for dinner, which made us a little late for the show! >_< But we made it inside before it started!

Top – Lowry’s Farm / Skirt – Cotton On / Shoes – Lowry’s Farm #

Yes,  you can see how the cleanliness of my room deteriorated from Friday to Sunday. I ALSO LOVE LOWRY’S FARM SO MUCH. -sob-

COMPANY was lovely, it was really nice to see the LASALLE graduates and catch up with them for a bit after the show. We missed supper with them though – had school the next day!

I got home, got a bit restless and decided to play with makeup before I showered.

THEFACESHOP – Blusher, Primer, Compact Powder.

I love getting new makeup. Yeah, my mom brought this back for me to try. The primer has been so awesome – WHY HAVEN’T I USED PRIMER BEFORE? Your face gets silky smooth!

Nekkid 2 – Urban Decay

This isn’t new, but it’s my favourite palatte of all time. Wendy has Naked (1) but Naked 2 has more matte shades I guess?

It was a good hair day. ^.^

Before

10 minutes later…

._. Well. At least I was going to shower after that.

Yeaaaahhhh this is why I choose to experiment before doing anything. I love awesome eyeliner styles, but I don’t have a steady hand. And it always turns out asymmetrical. Okay, my eyes are asymmetrical but BAH it never looks nice on me.

Yeah. No, Steph. No.

Well, I tried.

Off to do research for my essay. -deep sigh-

Until next time…

Pirandello and Packages

Oh yay – first (official) post in my new site! I still have loads to edit on the ‘blog’ section, getting everything organized, but have some life updates! I also know I should be working on my essays, but y’know, heh.

So today was the opening night of the Year 3 Acting show, “6 Characters in Search of an Author” by Luigi Pirandello, directed by Natalie Hennedige from CAKE. The  process was different from all the previous shows. A 70ish minute show with all 12 of us mostly on stage – Different. A whole different ball game. I had problems with my character at the start, trying to find a fiction that was interesting enough so I wouldn’t space out on stage. I would say Grotowski’s psycho-physical actions helped a lot. Thanks Adam. Haha.

Every time I’m back in the theatre the more I’m sure this is where I’m meant to be.

So yes, before opening night we had an open dress, which was the run where people from the Acting/Musical Theate/T+P/lecturers would watch our run. It was like all open dress runs – warm, loving audience.

Today’s #ootd. It was a pretty awesome hair day. I also need to invest in a full-length mirror. Haha.

Anyway, dressing room pictures!

Sherri and Wendy, with their hoodies.

The entire cast got opening night flowers + chocolates from Natalie! Ahhh why is she so sweet? -sob-

Wendy, bear hoodie, flowers. I feel the need to put on a Scottish accent a la “Brave” whenever I say the word “bear”.

Anyway, opening night was good! I thought it went pretty well! ^_^ I also went home to… PACKAGES IN THE MAIL YAY!

Charmed episodes, Dark Shadows (from HollywoodClicks.com, a very nifty DVD rental site, I’m still unsure on how I feel about it),  a top, kitty dust plug on my phone, my postcard back from Adam (class exercise), and cookies my mom bought! #happy

Look at the widdle kitty on my phone! :3 N’gawww…

Alright, back to trying to do my thesis reading and intercultural theatre essay. -deep sigh-

Wish me luck.

All that jargon.

Well, I survived the move to my own domain. I really do have Scott L from GatorHost to thank – I was up till 4AM trying to move wordpress to a domain. I still have issues with the table width of the ‘blog’ section, but it doesn’t seem to be working. Anyone with experience tweaking wordpress themes?

The site definitely  isn’t where I want it to be yet, but it’ll do for now.

Tomorrow (or today) is the open dress for “6 Characters in search of an Author”. I should get to sleep.

I also need to catch up on my thesis readings.

 

Until then,

If You Forget Me – Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

Memorizing text for Suzuki.
