Spring makes me really go boy crazy. Fair warning to any males in my vicinity over the next few weeks.

Other than that, I’ve been crazy busy lately. I’m in a show right now. La Bete. It’s going to be hilarious. It’s my first non-musical pretty much ever. I’m also working on an informative speech for my Speech class. I’m doing it on upcycling. The bright side to the boring speech part? I get to make plenty of pretty new stuff for visual aids!

This particular set is made of an old issue of the Nashville Scene. (: It’s a basket and an unfinished (for now) flower. I’m pretty proud of both.

That’s all I have time for now! Expect more soon!

That was today. I feel so nice. Today was so long, and tomorrow is going to be even longer, but for now, I’m really okay. I was up at 7. I had an 8 AM class, which I had to leave early so that I could sing in chapel with Mads. It went really well. Surprisingly well, even. The rest of my day was pretty uneventful. Classes, lunch, that sort of thing. Until 6. At 6, I went to auditions for the show La Bete. It’s a comedy written by an American man and set in 17th century France. It’s all rhymed couplets. Yeah.

At auditions, there were only two of us. There’s another night of auditions tomorrow night, but I feel like, right now, I have a pretty good chance. I just feel that it went really well. I’m really excited to see how it turns out. Either way, I think I’ll be good.

After auditions, there was a little thing called the Trevecca 72 Hour Film Festival. The way it works is, one night, everyone who wants to be involved shows up to a meeting and draws a random genre from a hat (or something like it– you know). From the time they draw, they have 72 hours to write, cast, shoot, and edit a short film. Yeah, it’s as hectic as it sounds. Well, my friends decided to participate. They drew the genre “action.” Well, I was asked to participate, along with an amazing cast and crew made up of people we love. ┬áThus began “LARP- The Movie.”

Now, for those of you unfamiliar with LARPing, that means “live action role playing.” Yeah. Well, we made a film completely about nerdy friends playing D&D and LARPing. It was hilarious and badly made, but it was great. It was so wonderful. Really. I’ll post it if I ever get it. Anyway, after all the films are shown, they give awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Film. Needless to say, we didn’t win Best Film. Which is okay. We did, however, take home both the Best Actor and Actress trophies. Trey won for his bad guy character (which, by the way, was really great) and I won for my awkward, socially inept love interest character.

Now, keep in mind, there were maybe three actresses in the entire festival, but I still felt pretty cool.

My night is far from over, as I now have work to do, but I feel good about it right now. Have a good one, guys.
