Thoughts

Sure... the Vision's Hazy

I'm making an attempt to put together a list of all the various theatre productions in which I've been involved. This is primarily for my own benefit so that, someday years in the future, I can look back and actually remember where all my time went in high school / college... but it also might be useful to use as a resumé-type-thing for any theatre-ish people who might want to hire me / check my credentials / whatever.

Anyway, I quickly discovered it's a task which is far more difficult than originally anticipated. I've helped out in a ton of productions, many of which I only faintly remember. Puzzled After digging through folders of old programs, searching what sparse Internet resources are available for the theatre companies with which I've been involved, and looking through a bunch of all photo/web archives on my computer, I think I've put together a fairly thorough list.

If anyone has any corrections or remembers anything which I didn't mention, I'd like to hear about it. Also, if you remember anything at all about the shows surrounded by question marks, let me know. Smile

I'll go back later and add a description of my involvement with each show.

If you have a few minutes, take a look and let me know if I missed anything.

 

Up, Up and Away

Humorous enough that it was worth stealing (from Matt's away message):

Why am I experiencing the stress of college to end up doing the news in a town smaller than the one I am currently living in? Needless to say I am going to drop out of school, start my own video production company / community theatre, and cast myself in all the lead roles. I wonder where I got that idea from?

Gee... I wonder who he's talking about? Sticking out tongue

 

Just write, already!

So I put a link to this blog in my AIM profile. If you came here via. that link, you should bug me to update this more often. I have this problem with "laziness." Hopefully, if I get motivated to write in this thing on a regular basis, my composition skills won't atrophy any more than they already have.

See, that's the problem with being an engineering/technology major. Your math skills get exercised so much they look like Schwarzenegger while your English skills wither away to nothing. Believe it or not, at one time I really enjoyed my English classes. Sure, composition was a drag because I'd always procrastinate till the last minute, but being able to express one's thoughts in a coherent and creative manner was fun. (Well, at least, it seemed fun... it could have something to do with the sleep deprivation due to writing all those papers at 3 AM. Wink! )

Anywho, sometimes I wonder if it might have been a better idea to go into a more "creative" major... probably not an "English" major exactly, but something more like communications (tele?) or theatre. I guess I'd have the opposite problem if I had made that choice, though... I'd be able to express myself creatively, but I'd never get a chance to do the cool "play with electronics"-type stuff from this degree... and I'd miss it just as much as I miss having a real creative outlet.

So, instead, I try to use my work at MHS with the choir as a creative outlet... and what happens there? I get stuck dealing with administrative BS to try to get equipment fixed/replaced. That's not creative. That's not even interesting. That's the type of stuff that makes me want to quit... so, I'm looking for somewhere else to pretend that I'm creative. Maybe it'll be this page... maybe...
