Balancing Act

10.21.2009Let me just tell you this week has already been intense and it's only Wednesday. It's tech week for the play I'm in, which is super insane. For those of you non-theatre people, tech week is the week before the first show where all of the lighting, sound effects, music, props, etc. are incorporated into the show and boy it's stressful! It's the week where everyone in the show, cast and crew, learn how to work together to make the show run smoothly.

Unfortunately, this means long rehearsals. Tonight, however, is our last rehearsal which means tomorrow night is our first show with an audience! Jeepers that's scary! We'll be fine though; we've been working hard for a long time and it's all starting to come together.

And unfortunately for me, this week has also been busy with schoolwork. I've got some studying to do because I have two exams and a presentation next week--Chemistry and French exams and a French presentation. And, I'm starting to get more time consuming projects in Video Production, like our one-man-band interview and field footage that's due on Tuesday. Luckily we have tomorrow's class period to work on those, and I'm hoping I can get it all done during that hour and fifteen minutes so I don't have to worry about it this weekend.

But, don't worry. I'm used to all of this hustle and bustle with school and extracurricular activities and although it gets stressful at times, I like to be busy. Not to mention it has taught me how to multitask and work under pressure and has forced me to be organized with my time. Speaking of time, since I have a little right now I think I'm going to take a quick nap before dinner--got to rest up for tonight's rehearsal!
