So...about that whole posting once a week thing...I promise I'll do better :)
Finally Christmas break! We got out of school last week, and I managed to get through the semester with a 3.75, and a 3.77 overall GPA. One semester to go...
And with that semester comes the thesis project. Designing/building six corsets for the beautiful play Intimate Apparel by Lynn Nottage. Set at the turn of the century, it centers around Esther, an African-American seamstress looking for love and meaning in her life. I'm already building the rehearsal corsets for the beginning of the semester, and this weekend has been devoted to getting renderings done. (Pictures to be posted soon.) Fred, my mentor and the lead designer on this show, and I went fabric shopping this week and found some absolutely lovely fabrics to use for the corsets. I've also gotten my application in to To Write Love on Her Arms to make our preview of the show a benefit performance. This gives theatre a chance to not only touch the lives of those who see it, but also others who need our help.
As far a applications...I need to still write cover letters. This is one of my biggest road blocks, because I always doubt myself when I do something I've never done before. I suppose it's time to just bite the bullet and get to applying. Looking at two touring jobs and two regional theatre jobs. I'm kind of leaning towards one of the regional theatre jobs (Wardrobe Supervisor!), but I've also always wanted to tour...another let go and let God moment...which I'm constantly working on. Daily prayers are getting easier since I signed up for Daily Bible Verse emails. They are the first thing in my inbox every morning, and since I always check my email when I wake up, it makes God the first thing I think about. Not too shabby of an idea, if I do say so myself. :)
