Well Mondays here again and it’s the start of another interesting week for many of you I’m sure anyway I’ve started my Stanislavsky course and it’s going well so far I had to read this essay about inner impulses and inner actions I also wrote over most of it mainly to show I’ve got some interest in what the essay is talking about no I’m joking I found it very insightful reading the course is also very interesting so I’ll see how it all turns out.
As many of you may or may not know I went to the crystal palace spa in London last Friday it was a bit tricky to find I have to say because it wasn’t obvious as to where exactly it was located even though myself and my mum who I went with were following the directions from those map stands that are often in busy London areas the treatment itself was fine I did feel a bit like an oven door as they scrubbed your body first before using a soap in order to cleanse and clean the skin which is basically in a nutshell what a Hamman treatment is.
Initially I had reservations as I was a bit taken aback when we were greeted by these two lines of beauty therapists I remember thinking I know I said I wanted to be in the Rocky Horror Show but I didn’t mean I wanted to be in it late on a Friday afternoon and we had to go downstairs underneath where they had hair and nail treatments going on so that was a bit odd but on balance it was fine I mean it was a Group-on voucher thing so at least we weren’t having to pay full price or anything I’m pretty reluctant to say that I would go back but myself and my mum are planning to go to the Sanctuary in London so I’m sure we’ll both love that.
My evening drama group’s started back it was on the same day as my Stanislavsky course so Thursdays are going to be very busy for me at least for a while but my Stanislavsky course finishes on 5th December but my evening drama class finishes on 12th December so it’s a bit longer in terms of time and everything the only thing that I’m having reservations about is the fourth week of my Stanislavsky course we’ll be doing emotional work and that also means we’ll have to cry in front of each other I’m assuming but the thing is if I’m genuinely upset then I’ll either wait until I get home before I start crying or I’ll carry on with my day and then later on when I get home I’ll let out the tears but I’ll have to cross that bridge when I come to it otherwise if I can’t then I’ll be known as the ‘dead inside’ girl who can’t evoke emotions to cry at will if required.
Anyway I’m sure it’ll be fine if necessary I’ll just have to say that it’s something I find hard to do but I’m sure my tutor on the course will be able to help me with that he seems very nice and very passionate about what he’s teaching which is nice because you don’t get many teachers who are like that well maybe one or two but then tend to be very rare and also because they’re really good they often get snapped up by another school so they don’t often stay for very long either.
I’ll be posting some new blog posts throughout the week so keep reading and thanks to everyone who is bearing with me and following me on Twitter as well.
Well as promised I’m posting another insightful blog post for you all to read of course I went along for my vocal lesson today and it was fantastic I had a very creative afternoon I have to say plus I came away with a lovely recording of me singing a cover of In Case by Demi Lovato it’s actually the first time I’ve heard a professional recording of myself singing because I’ve tried to record myself before on previous phones that I’ve had but obviously there not as good as having proper recording equipment.
Anyway I’ll be starting my introduction to Stanislavsky course which is very exciting and then going to my drama group in the evening hopefully the tube will be working alright and there won’t be any delays that mean I’m having to wait around for ages but I’m sure it’ll be fine I’m also hoping that I won’t have to wait too long for my bus into Bromley for my drama group but if I leave on time which I always make sure I do that should minimise any problems transport wise and then on Friday I’ll be going to the Crystal Palace Spa in London at four pm so that’ll be nice I haven’t done anything like going to a nice spa for ages so I’m looking forward to it.
I’ve also ordered a new dress from boohoo.com I know what your all thinking but it was only six pounds so at least I could afford it that should arrive by Friday they’re usually pretty good because I ordered a dress from them for my birthday and that came in time so fingers crossed it arrives in one piece and the correct size no I’m sure it’ll be fine I’m just being paranoid.
Then of course at the end of the month I’ll be taking part in the theatre showcase with my cousin which is very exciting at least I’ve been to the venue before so I know what to expect I just need to refresh my memory about how to get there but it’s not that difficult it’s just a matter of taking the correct route and not going round the houses because one of the ways you can get there is by overground and then by tube which is fine but obviously takes a little bit longer than just getting an overground and changing so that your only going a few stops on the tube I’ll work it out I’m sure.
Anyway I’m going to have a quick snack and then start thinking about what I’m going to cook for dinner.
Well Monday’s come around again I’ve been brainstorming ideas as well as applying for more jobs which is what I was doing last week but I had a very productive day today and then of course on Wednesday I’ll be going to my vocal lesson with the professional vocal coach in the afternoon plus my twelve week Stanislavsky course starts on Thursday and my drama group starts back in the evening it’ll be lovely to see everyone and it’s going to be very exciting to start a new course even if it is for twelve weeks.
Just in case you were all wondering the christening I went to the week before last went very well and it was lovely to see my cousin who I’m going to be doing the theatre showcase with I ended up wearing the dress that I wore to my cousins brothers wedding but I looked suitably stylish and I managed to have my hair cut and coloured in time for the event (not bad hey), but the only downside was that my another auntie of mine had rang the night before on the saturday saying that she wanted to travel up with my mum and myself so we said that was fine, anyway she sends this text message saying that my her daughter and her daughters boyfriend were practically leaving for the christening and they were all going to get breakfast in town I wasn’t really surprised but it was annoying that she didn’t have the courtesy to ring us that’s her decision I guess.
But at least I’m not having to bump into her everyday can you imagine how awkward that would be, I suppose that’s the advantage of being a blogger it means that you can either hideaway in a cafe for a while or type up your blog post at home first and then go for a nice walk somewhere anyway I’m also going to be heading off to a lovely spa on Friday in the afternoon so that’ll be nice it’s another birthday voucher that I didn’t realise I had but at least it’s still valid so I’m going to go with my mum she needs it by the sounds of it the amount of Pilates classes she’s been teaching I’ll definitely need it after Thursday I can tell you.
Well I’m going to check my emails and twitter feed before pre-heating my oven so I can make dinner.
I’ll be posting some more new entries hopefully this week if not I’ll try and put them up over the weekend.
As usual Monday’s here again but at least the summer break isn’t quite over yet so that’s a good thing well for the people who are still on holiday it is, anyway enough about that the weekend wasn’t too bad actually and yes just in case your wondering I did order a takeaway on Friday but I didn’t watch a film because I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to watch but the programmes on TV were ok so that made up for my indecisiveness then saturday was actually quite a busy day for me it was still relaxing though I went for a lovely walk in a very nice park which is fairly near by with a couple of friends then we had a lovely lunch together and then decided to walk around the gardens of the picture gallery which was opposite the park, I was so tired when I got home after all that walking that I didn’t wake up from my afternoon power nap until five.
Then later on in the evening I watched my DVD of the Rocky Horror Picture Show for the sixth time I don’t know what it is there’s something about that film that makes you want to see it again even though you’ve seen it hundreds of times before I suppose it’s the same scenario with the play because that can get quite addictive especially if it’s being put on at a theatre near to where you live.
Anyway speaking of plays I went to see Sweet Bird of Youth at the Old Vic theatre up in Waterloo with a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for a while it was nice to catch up actually it was fantastic to watch and the setting of the play was just right because you felt as though you were part of the scenes being played out on stage plus I got to watch Kim Cattrall for three hours and as I’m a huge Sex and the City fan that was just an added bonus plus I’ve never actually seen someone famous in a theatre production before so that was even more exciting.
Moving on from the excitement of theatre I’ve been applying for more jobs by the way I applied for four more last Friday bringing my total up to fifteen unfortunately one of the jobs that I was quite keen on I didn’t get but at least they had the courtesy to reply to me and I know that they’ll keep my CV on file for six months so hopefully something else will come up who knows really it’s just a matter of being patient I think and getting your CV out there that’s the main thing I think.
But I’m looking forward to the christening though this weekend on Sunday it’ll be my second one as the first one was for my cousins daughter I’m still trying to think of what to get their son for a christening present but I’m sure I’ll come up with something I’m not even sure what I’m going to wear actually I’ll have to have a look and see what I’ve got otherwise it could be a perfect excuse for me to go shopping!! if not online shopping even though I shouldn’t but I’m sure I’ll look suitably stylish at any rate whatever the outcome.
Anyway I’m going to head off now and make dinner I’ll be posting some more entries throughout the week so keep reading.
