So, today is Sunday.
I have a ton of stuff that I should be doing. But, it’s now almost noon and I’m just now getting around to this. Oops.
Date: September 15, 2013
Days Spent on Project: 210
Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC
Person I would have sent it to: Marni.
That first summer at NHSI, I wasn’t the only Faculty Associate hired; there were a total of 10 of us. Marni was probably the one that I got along with the best personally. Thirteen years later, despite feeling like I probably spent the most time with her outside of class, I can’t remember her last name or what college she was going to or what about theater interested her.
It feels like a lifetime ago, the summer of 2000. I mean, I was on a completely different track then… I still assumed I’d pursue acting or dance or performance after college. I had just started to turn my focus towards design. I hadn’t yet thought about grad school or life after college or what city I would move to or what it meant to work as a theater artist.
Like I said, I was a completely different, partially unformed person then.
Music I listened to while sewing: I’ve found a playlist on Spotify for The Drowned Man, the new Punchdrunk production in London. Since I can’t get over there to experience it firsthand, I can at least listen to parts of it…
And it sounds like it would be so so so good.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: I’ll be honest with you right now. I’m more than a little disoriented and scattered right now.
In my life, I’ve got this production of Hamlet I’m slogging through. I’ve got this web-series that will start filming in 13 days, for a total of two weeks. I’m going to Providence, RI tomorrow morning on an ungodly early train for a design meeting and rehearsal on a third show. I have a project that will happen next May that needs some serious attention very soon. Then I have these Cranes.
That’s five projects that are pulling in different directions. (They’re even going to pull me to different states!)
No wonder I’m at a loss.
I’m not even going to try and be deep right now. I just need to get moving. It’s almost noon and I’m still in pj’s and I have a list of things to do that isn’t getting done!
Cheers and enjoy the day. It’s really Fall here!
