The guy who’s directing Les Miserables (I’m AD-ing, and he was my high school theatre teacher) told me to stage Javert’s suicide. I flipped, because obviously it’s a big deal of a scene.
Anyway, I was working with the actor today and I was all nervous and awkward and the director was onstage doing something else and I looked at him and I was like, “Do you have any input?” And he looked at me and said, “Nope. This is all you. You can do it. You know you can do it.”
And even though I graduated high school years ago and I’ve directed several plays on my own, it still made my entire life to know that he thinks I’m capable of staging such an intensely dramatic important scene.
I mean, I knew I could do it. It’s just nice to be reminded every so often :)
Sometimes, I force myself to drink milk by buying cookies.
eat poorly, go to parties, dance,
drunk text your ex, kiss your friends,
smile at strangers, draw flowers on math notes,
hug your father, watch movies with your mother,
write poetry, talk to boys at gas stations,
hug your pillow, sing into brushes,
collect seashells, make bracelets,
pull at flowers, end friendships,
make new ones, buy fresh fruit,
forget your homework, put your feet in the river,
go to the zoo, pretend you’re a lion,
bathe in sunlight, hold hands with shy boys,
forgive others, forgive yourself,
laugh, scream, run,
There are years that ask questions and years that answer.
greentreerealm asked: Sooo I had a dream where we were in a car accident with a drug dealer on the run. We were safe; but when the cops showed up to arrest the dealer who ran into us, the dealer asked one of them, "you're not gonna shoot me are you?" The cop then took the clip out of gun, said "of course not", put it between his teeth; and said, "it's a metaphor." We then looked at each other in our wrecked vehicle and busted out laughing >.< Clearly, I've had too much internet >.<
