Well it’s the middle of the week and the end of the week is nearly within sight on the plus side though the sunshines still here so fingers crossed it lasts for the weekend anyway today was just a typical wednesday really as I’m sure it is for most of you but at least I got to have a lovely walk outside in the sunshine, before going to the supermarket to pick up a few bits so that was good there’s something about wednesdays and sundays, as well it’s as though they’ve been designed to be mundane and slower compared to the rest of the days in the week.
Never mind my drama groups back after the half term break tomorrow it’ll be lovely to see everyone plus it gives me something to look forward to, we’re working towards our informal showing which for myself anyway will have to be the twenty seventh of march as my mum has got someone to cover her class that night, but anyway I’m sure it’ll be fine either and the full show isn’t until July so if we don’t say have as many for the informal showing that won’t necessarily matter as we’re just performing in the same room where we do the class.
In case you were all wondering I haven’t heard anything from the bag and photography shop that’s just up the road from me I been checking my emails and phone but so far nothing I’ll give it a couple more days and if I still haven’t heard anything then I can just put it on my CV as experience if necessary but I have applied for a Marketing and PR assistant job with a company called the Charity People so hopefully something might come of that now I’ve refined my marketing and general CV’s I’ll let you all know either way.
Anyway another thing that happened to me today was that my cat managed somehow to lost two collars the second one I’d obviously not secured enough but the first collar I’m not sure how the cat managed to take that one off as I had secured the first one enough so that the cat wouldn’t be able to take it off so easily but never mind I’ve put another one on the cat for now so hopefully this one won’t get lost but you never know with animals.
Thanks for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting the link to this blog post onto my twitter feed as well.
Well it’s Tuesday, the middle of the week is nearly insight and the sunshines here at last in February!! Looks like springs not going to be too far behind us fingers crossed the summers nice it’ll be lovely to finally wear something summery rather than having to wear a coat every time I go out. Anyway last week for most of us it was half term mine was fairly busy but not just the right amount otherwise I get bored or easily distracted one of those two, I caught up family but it was just my auntie who lives down the road from me, she wanted me to help her with some restraining techniques that she had to learn for this course that she was doing at the school she teaches at so that was interesting.
Then at the weekend on Sunday I finally managed to hand in my CV to this shop up the road from me it’s a bag shop and photography studio but it’s very nice inside, my hairdresser very kindly mentioned me to the girl who runs the shop she seemed nice so hopefully that might come to something it’ll be part time but that’s fine it’s kind of what I’m looking for really, obviously if somethings more permanent then you can structure other things around it but I really don’t mind so fingers crossed she said she’d keep me in mind, so who knows really I’ll let you all know if I hear anything.
Moving slightly I’m kind of a little bit further in finding a dress for my sisters wedding I know what style I’m looking for but I’m not sure where I’m going to get the dress from I could order it online but then you have to wait a few days for it to come, but then again I’ve ordered a couple dresses from the same website that I got my 21st birthday dress from and both of them came relatively quickly, so I might order something from them but then again I’m sort of looking for something a little bit more grown up not too grown up, but just something that says ‘I’m a sophisticated young lady’ plus my sisters dads going to be giving her away so I’ll need to look particularly fantastic that day, then there’s my hair and make up as well but once I’ve found, ordered and got the dress I’ll be able to start thinking about possible make up looks.
I’m sure I’ll look fantastic but not too over the top I can’t up stage the bride of course that’s an unwritten rule when it comes to weddings upstaging the bride is a definite no but I have offered to help my sister should she need anything I might try and ring her actually and see how she’s getting on and whether I can help out at all with anything. Also the venue she’s having the wedding at is really nice so it should be a really lovely celebration plus it’ll be lovely to see her and my nephew as a page boy I’ll definitely have to get a picture of him.
Thanks again for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting this link onto my twitter feed for you to have a read of.
Well it’s officially Friday and of course the weekend is within sight plus there’s some sunshine around which is great just in case you were all wondering I unfortunately didn’t get the job in the supermarket that I was interviewed for on Monday but never mind I’ll contact their HR department for some feedback and I’ll take it from there.
Anyway I went to speak to the volunteer people that I mentioned in my previous post it was very disappointing I filled out the registration form, I was asked what I was interested in and I talked about my interest in theatre and marketing as possible volunteer avenues that was fine until they produced a ring binder file that was full of plastic folders containing their volunteer opportunities I had to sift through them and picked five as possibilities before they were photocopied and that was it I was annoyed because I could have just stayed at home and looked up volunteer opportunities on the internet.
I took the ones that I had home with me threw away the ones that weren’t any good and then contacted the ones that were possibilities so who knows I also spoke to someone else from the volunteer organisation again on the phone about the pathways project so hopefully I should get a phone call as my landline is now back up and running after ages and ages of emails and phone calls.
Never mind I’m just going to have a nice rest of the day and then order a pizza later and maybe watch a film I think so that’ll be nice at least there’s the rest of weekend to look forward to and my course as well on Sunday afternoon it’ll be nice to do something therapeutic well for me anyway at least I’ve got a funny story that I can laugh about later on.
Moving on very swiftly from all that I’ve been forming some ideas for my sisters wedding in July I can’t wait it’s going to be amazing also there’s my full performance with my drama group on Thursday evenings to look forward to as well it was lovely to see everyone last night and the session was great I think the informal showing at the end of march is going to quite good but we’ll have to see how it goes.
Thanks for bearing with me and continuing to read about my crazy random life I’m going to head off now otherwise I’ll be sitting here all day and before I know it it’ll be five o’clock.
Well it’s Thursday and the weekends nearly within sight and of course the weather doesn’t look like it’s going to improve well at least for today it’s meant to on Friday apparently so hopefully we’ll get some sunshine for the weekend.
Elsewhere in my crazy random life I’m going to my evening drama group tonight it’ll be lovely to see everyone again as I missed it last week due to a personal matter I did miss it as I really love going to the group and I did wonder if I should’ve maybe gone a bit later but it was definitely the right decision in that situation for me not to go.
Anyway tomorrow I’ll be meeting with the volunteer people so hopefully that might come to something otherwise it’s a good reference point to give me some ideas about the areas that I’d like to volunteer and maybe work in it’s also the day that I’ll hear about the supermarket job interview that I went for fingers crossed so who knows I’m just keeping an open mind about it really at the end of the day it ‘s good experience.
Weekend wise I’m not sure what I’ll be doing on Saturday but I’m sure I’ll end up doing something I always do then I’ll be going to my voice course on Sunday which I also missed last week because the transport system where I live was up the creek so it would have been a complete nightmare to get up there and get back home again it was nice to relax and have a quiet Sunday but hopefully fingers crossed the transport system won’t be too bad I’ll look up my route for Sunday either later today, tomorrow, or Saturday so I’m sure it’ll be fine.
In a strange way it’ll be interesting to see how the rest of my voice class got on I’ll be intrigued to hear about what they covered last week I’m sure I’ll be brought up to speed either way it’ll also be interesting to see what they think of the tutor after the second week because she’s very theatrical and I personally love people like that because I’m a creative person but I know that not everyone gets on with people who are theatrical as they can only take them in small doses but it’s hard to tell as it’ll be finishing soon.
But knowing me though going back to Saturday night very quickly knowing me I’ll probably either end up watching a film or watching my Sex and City box set which I’ve got back into recently in away I kind of relate to the character ‘Carrie’ as she writes a column and I write a blog I also find it really entertaining and funny as well especially the episode where the character ‘Samantha’ gets really drunk at a couples party that her, ‘Carrie’ and the other character ‘Charlotte’ attend.
Anyhow I’m going to head off now otherwise I’ll be sitting here all day and before I know it’ll be five o’clock and the whole day would’ve gone plus I’ll be late for my drama group tonight and I’ll be in a major rush to get there.
Well it’s the middle of the week and it’s raining but luckily the last two days haven’t been that bad so I can’t complain too much.
In case you were all wondering I didn’t get the audition for the old vic community company never mind like I said I’ll just put it down as valuable experience on my Acting CV (Yes I do have one!!) anyway on the plus side I will be doing an informal showing at the end of march with my drama group on Thursday evenings and then a full performance on the stage in July so that’s very exciting it’ll be amazing to be on the stage again I was kind of hoping that we would do our show on the stage again so I’m glad that we are.
Another exciting piece of news that I have for you is that my sister is finally getting married in July don’t worry it’s not going to clash with my drama group performance it’s on a completely different date I’m really happy for her because she’s been engaged to her lovely partner for such along time well it seems like it and I was also hoping that one day she would get married, she’s not having bridesmaids which is fine of course but I’ll be the on call maid of honour so that’s alright.
It also means I can start looking for an amazing dress I’m already looking online for ideas so hopefully I’ll find something simple but with a little bit of sparkle maybe as it’s going to be a late afternoon ceremony with a party afterwards at the same venue so it’ll be very informal I can’t wait to see my nephew dressed as a page boy he is going to look so cute it’s his birthday soon actually I must try and remember to get him a card in time for it that’s something I’ll get onto tomorrow when the weathers a little bit better.
I’ve also volunteered my services as a co-wedding assistant so I’m wondering how much I’ll have to do but I don’t mind it’ll be fun really I’ve never been really involved with a wedding before I’ve attended two weddings but it’s nice to think that you’ve played some role in the special day. I’m also wondering about how I should do my make up I’ll need to look for something that will transfer into evening or something that I can add onto for the actual celebration afterwards.
Anyway I’ve bored you all enough I’m sure talking about my sisters wedding celebration but I’m just going to add this one last quick thing before I move on the only downside is that my sisters dad will be giving her away so of course I’ll need to look suitably fantastic I’m thinking of having hair extensions again so I’ll make sure that I’ve booked my hair appointment well in advance of the celebration.
Moving on as promised elsewhere in my life on Friday I’m going to meet with some volunteer people at twelve so hopefully they’ll be able to find me something ideally I would like something creative like being involved with the marketing for a theatre but I don’t mind volunteering in a shop or something like that anyway its also the day I’ll hear about a job interview that I went for this monday just gone it was for a customer assistant role in a supermarket I think I did well in the interview and the lady who was interviewing me seemed to like me but it’s hard to tell really who knows I can always put it down on my CV as experience if it doesn’t work out.
Thanks for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be putting the link to this blog post up onto my twitter feed as well so you can all read it later if you want to.
