Now I'm in: Oslo
I'm feeling: content
We've been working on a play at school now, the past six months (you might know that I attend a drama high school) and yesterday we had the premiere!!!
Now... we've all been a bit upset with our teacher and the play in general. It's a modern play called "Illyria", written by Bryony Lavery in 2000. It's about a conuntry called Illyria where there's a civil war raging (it's quite similar to the way eastern european countries have been). We follow a reporter who goes there to write an article about the war.
Now, at first I didn't like the play and definitely didn't want to do it. Then I got the worst parts in the play, so I wasn't really happy.
But after a while the play grew on me and I started liking it more and more, mainly because we made some good stuff for my parts. =)
Then it went downhill again. Always when you approach the premiere you start wondering if it's a good play or not. I started really hating the play and hating the teacher...
But then came the premiere. Our audience gave us lots of praise and told us it was really well done, so now I'm really happy about it again!!! We played two shows today and they also both went well. I'm really looking forward to showing it to my friends and family now! They're coming to see it on Thursday. =)
On a completely different note.. I've decided what I want to do when I finish high school in June!!
First I'm going to a "Folk high school". Those schools are boarding schools that you stay at for a year and study a subject you find fun and interesting. There are no exams or tests, just fun! It'll be nice to have a year of relaxing. Now however, I don't know which school to choose! I got in to one where I can study the US and go on a month long trip there. That would be great, as I've really wanted to visit the US for a while now. Or.. I could choose another one where I'd be studying art for a year and I get a 3 week trip to India. There I'll also have one of my best friends at the same school. Hmmm.... A third choice is a Theatre/Musical school. I will choose that one if I get in, but I haven't gotten an answer from them yet. But if I don't get in to that one, which should I choose??? PLEASE HELP ME!! I really don't know which one I want...
Anyway... After that one year, I plan on going to Britain to study at a university. I'm hoping to get into Queen Margaret's University College in Edinburgh, because they have a really good drama school. One of Britains best, I've been told. But, as chances are small of getting in, I'll also be applying to other drama schools as well as applying for different subjects at that school. I'm crossing my fingers that it'll work out!!
I mean... Edinburgh... Not only do they have a castle, speak in a beautiful accent, but they have JK Rowling!!!
Who could ask for more?
