First off, Will learned a new word. He learns new words all of the time, so usually this wouldn't be blog worthy. However, the new word made me think about my own life. What is it? Wal-Mart. I think I've been going there too much lately.
Secondly, we went to Salt Lake to visit Temple Square with Dallas' family last night. Don't get me wrong, I like Christmas lights as well as the next person, but why do we torture ourselves with cold to walk around the grounds when we could sit in a warm car and drive through Thanksgiving Point? I only say this because it seems like every year the goal is to see how quickly we can make it through the grounds and back to the car. We did have some good laughs (mostly thanks to the warm parking garage at the Olive Garden).
Lastly, I performed a monologue for my Shakespeare class yesterday. This normally wouldn't be a big event if it weren't for the fact that I hadn't acted in 5 years. I can't believe it's been that long. I performed a monologue from King Henry VI part 3 that a sweet student Maddie at DHS competed with this year. I have wanted to do it for a long time, so when the option was open to do it for my final project I took it. It was awesome. I even loved the fact that I forgot a line and was able to keep going without it totally throwing my focus. It was fun to discover a totally different way to do it than Maddie did. I think I've grown a lot as an actor (and I use that term loosely my friends) in the last five years just by watching and having more life experiences. (It has also helped to take a Shakespeare class and actually understand what I'm saying in my pieces more clearly). Performing reminded me of why I love being on stage so much. It's a feeling you can't get anywhere else. You're so nervous and frightened, then you perform and you can't wait to do it all over again. Maybe I will audition for some of the Timpanogos Valley Theater Company productions coming up... I just want to feel that again. Some of you know what I'm talking about.
