Well, I haven't made a post in a while, so...I thought I would make a post. Cause I'm brilliant like that.

I'm back at school, thank God. I'm finding it really hard to get back in the habit of classwork, though. I like...three out of four of my classes. My professor for Psychology of Gender is just incredibly obnoxious.

The big news is that I got cast in a really awesome role in the first Todd play, The Lower Depths. I'm really in love with this character. It's funny to say that, because she's a total bitch most of the time, but I really feel like I know her and understand why she is the way she is. I mean, that's incredibly basic and necessary for an actor, but I found this connection really quickly. Probably because, on Sunday, I spent about an hour and a half on three pages of text that was a very emotional, vulnerable scene with my lover who basically breaks up with me. No matter how tough and hard you may be on the outside, it will always hurt when you're in love with someone who leaves you. You can't ever protect yourself against that. I just really love Virginia. She's this hard, broken, damaged woman, but she was born with nothing. She married this landlord for security, he's an awful, controlling bastard, and she finds love that leaves her. She's a survivor. And it just makes my heart ache for her a little.
