Why is it that I feel a little ashamed to admit that I am embarrassed by how much I love Katy Perry? I can't resist her music. It's so catchy and fun. And completely irresistible. Kinda like combining purple and orange. Now a year ago, I would have been horrified at these two colors put together. But when I was looking for some summery tops, I was automatically drawn to this particular top. It doesn't look like anything I have in my closet.
Today, I pack up a suitcase full of props- four Marilyn Monroe dresses, high heel shoes, blonde wigs, fake lashes, fake boobs- to drag along to theatre class. Our still untitled play will premiere Thursday morning, and we are hard at work getting scenes worked out. The premise, just in case you've been following along and waiting with bated breath, is pretty nutty. Marilyn Monroe injures herself and has to help find a replacement for the film she is working on. Hilarity ensues as an obsessed fan, an alcoholic slut, a nerdy bookworm and a cross-dresser each battle it out for the role of a lifetime. Sounds amazing, right?
I've really been in my element this week. We had an essay due which I enjoyed writing way more than I should have. A quiz today that I aced. I got to play director and boss people around. I am in my element! I really love being a student, maybe more than being a teacher. Sadly I haven't figured out how to make a sustainable living as a full-time student. Any ideas?
