Conclusions to the spring

piano.jpgWell, I took my last final today (I only had two, of course). We did a scene from Terra Nova. It went pretty well.

It’s also the end of the school year. All, well, most of the kids will scatter to parts unknown to chill out for a couple of months or get a job or take more classes at a school closer to home.

I’ve met a lot of great people since August of last year. I’ve been in several shows with them. I traveled to NYC with them. I’ve partied with them. I’ve laughed and talked and laughed.

And I’ll miss them.

I’m doubly sad ’cause there’s a really good chance M will be leaving me too. It would be nice if we had a chance for “us” time this summer since the last semester has been so crazy for both of us that we haven’t had much time together. But she’ll probably be interning somewhere. There’s nothing definite yet, but she’s got a couple of leads. She really needs to intern for her career and I support her in that.

But it’s gonna be lonely at home this summer.

Luckily, there’s the summer musical at SCT. I love my SCT peeps. I’m really looking forward to it. Auditions are in a couple of weeks. My first ever stage audition was for the musical last summer. Read about it in part 1 and part 2.

I still can’t believe how much I have learned since then. I’ve had three acting classes from two great teachers. I’ve been in several different kinds of shows. It has been so great. I still don’t know how I didn’t ever start acting/performing sooner.

I was talking to one of my new friends today after the advanced acting final and she couldn’t believe that Story Theatre last November was the first play that I ever did in my life. We didn’t know each other at the time and so it was very self-esteem-boosting to hear that she remembered my performance and thought I was an old-hand and also considering she’s a very good actress herself.

Who knows what the future holds? It’s exciting and I can’t wait.

  1. Can we just talk about how I am continually blown away by your on stage talents? Never doubt for a second that you don’t belong in the lime light; nay, sir, that is where you shine.

  2. I know what you’re saying and I appreciate it.

    Though I don’t like to limit myself to the lime light, I prefer any citrus-flavored light 😉

  3. Hey Kary. I’ll be here during the summer, d00d. And Kristin’s already gone. And I know we aren’t MARRIED, but we… probably will be. heh. I’m watching the seconds tick away. but uhh… we can be together. Don’t think that just because me and Will are gay together it doesn’t mean that me and you can’t be as equally gay together. I mean, I watch Reed Martin and Jess Winfield onstage together and I see closeness between them. I see love zip zap zopping across the stage. And I want that for us! I- … okaaaay… Awkward tent. Nevermind.

  4. Hey Kary, You know your peeps at SCT love you too! And I am sad to hear that Mandy is gone this summer (I read ahead) – cause we were sure going to get her in the ole lime light too! But you have auditions just 6 days from now (next Monday and Tuesday – ut oh, you will be gone Monday… but don’t worry, I know the director)! So the fun will start again soon. Love ya, Kid!
