Hilary-Ann: people generally consider Gandhi to be a good person, right?
Hilary-Ann: and saint Patrick, he was pretty good too.
Teresa: yes, generally
Hilary-Ann: that settles it! I am going on hunger strike.

One time, I couldn’t remember what the ambulance was called.
And I said hospital bus.

My capstone project binder will be put together and turned into my professor by midnight tomorrow. It has been a long, stressful, painful, and fun process. The run of the show was fun, but I can honestly say I am glad it is over. The time spent in toil outweighs the time spent in laughter. Everyone seems much happier now that this process has come to an end. Not the ideal experience, but every experience is valuable. Am I proud of my work? Yes and no, but I will leave that for the private reflection paper.

This Wednesday passed, I performed in the understudy run as Peter Pan. It was very thrilling (“Peter loved to be thrilled,”- JMB), and in many ways it felt like a culmination of all my research and preperation (with the exception of lack of direction and concept, and an adaptation that varies widely from JM Barrie’s script). It meant a lot to me to see my family and friends there, as well as so many strangers that we needed to add seats! I have to complete my personal character interpretation (how to adapt JM Barrie’s Peter to the Peter that I see in this adapted script), and write a reflection paper regarding the experience. The understudy run was thrilling and successful. Many people told me that I was “born for this part”, and I felt very natural onstage. There wasn’t a moment that I was aware of myself as an actor; only as Peter. It was a moment of truthfulness that I have never experienced before, and will never experience again. In a way, I am very sad that my work on Peter is over, even though I now have to go into tech and the run of the show. I am very tired (this rehearsal process has not been ideal) and I just want to get through this week as quickly as possible. I must move on to bigger and better things!
