Classes, Plays, and Friends

Seeing as how my smoke alarm just went off for no good reason, I figured I'd take some time to write down a few things that have been going on. My living room and dining room are complete and looking fantastic. My room's still a mess, but I'll be getting to that soon.

Classes are going well. HUM 410 doesn't scare me quite as much as it used to. However, I'm geting really annoyed with Survey of World History. For a 200 level class, it's too heavy. Plus, it seems to just add more busy work to the mix and I don't like that. The professor's nice and all, but I don't think he's used to teaching at a college as small as Warner (being an adjunct). I kind of wish I was back in Music Theory, but I'm taking Counterpoint, so that makes up for it mostly.

I'm, once again, involved in Play Production this semester (though I can't actually take it for credit anymore). The play this time is "The Good Doctor" by Neil Simon, based on the works of Anton Chekov. It follows a narrator (supposed to be Chekov himself) through a series of vinyettes. I play two characters: the first, an old man in "Too Late for Happiness" and, the second, a sailor in "The Drowned Man". The first one, I actually wasn't cast for, but the original casted person dropped out due to health issues, so I was asked to do it because Gary (our director) knew I could sing. The second one is absolutely hilarious. The premise is that the sailor tries to get a man (the narrator) to pay him three rubles to watch him drown for entertainment. The entire play is very witty and off-kilter humor that can only be expected of a combination between a Russian satirist and Neil Simon. Even if I weren't in it, I'd recommend seeing it. It's wonderful!

Other than all that, I've been doing a lot of introspection lately. In particular, how I relate to my friends. One thing that I simply had to give up on was the idea that anyone would ever seek me out. As much as people should, they won't. So, I've been working on seeking out the friendship of my friends. I'm working on pursuing their friendship, but without pushing them. I hoping this experiment works because I've got nothing left after this.

Anyway, it's late and I have class and work tomorrow.

That play sounds wonderful! I wish I lived close enough to go see it.

Have you not been posting much, or am I just not seeing your posts? It seems like I never see you on my friends page.

410 isn't as scary as it is made out to be. I found it somewhat boring.

I'm so glad you got cast as the sailor! You did a great job with it at tryouts.
