It feels like Monday today since this is my first school day this week. I attended a conference on underachieving gifted students on Monday and Tuesday in Iowa City. It was a good conference with a lot of helpful, interesting information, and the speaker is a leader in the field. But, it was basically two whole days of her standing at a podium and talking at us. It was a lot of information to take in... my brain hurt when it was all said and done.
Monday night was the first night of Pippin rehearsal. I had a pleasant surprise... my friend Tom and I are going to be the Lead Players. The Lead Player is the role that was done by Ben Vereen. We're going to split the lines and do the songs in harmony. I'm really excited!
Tonight after school, I have a radio audition for FTD. It's a radio commercial for Mother's Day flowers. I did a spot for Maverick Trucking Company a couple of weeks ago. Radio voice-overs are super fun and easy to do. I almost feel bad for getting paid to do them... but not that bad. ;)
I survived 5th grade orientation last night. It was actually painless, so I shouldn't have griped. I'm going to have a small 6th grade class next year... I think only 8 students. But, the class after that is already up to 20, so that's good news. Can you say job security?
Last night after orientation, I walked with my friend Stephen, and then we went over to some cast friends' apartment just to hang out for a little bit. It's kind of like we all had withdrawal from being apart since Sunday. That will end tomorrow night when we perform though, and we'll have a busy weekend with 5 shows. I hope our attendance is better... come see the show!!!!
