Hey guys, so this post is probably going to be really short as it’s late and I need my sleep as I promised myself that this year I would work towards a happier, healthier me… blah, blah, blah you’ve heard all these kinds of things before.
Anyway, I thought I would just give you a short post explaining a little bit about what’s been going on in my life lately and why I haven’t been posting as much as I normally do or as much as I would like to. As I’ve said before, I do have tons of ideas kept in a notebook that keeps getting updated everyday but it’s just finding the time to actually write the posts. I don’t really want to become one of those bloggers who has the potential to write some really amazing posts and actually writes posts that could be amazing but are actually just decent because they couldn’t or didn’t commit enough time to it. Now I’m not saying that people are lazy as I know how busy life gets, I’m just saying for me personally, as a blogger, I would rather wait until I had the time to write an incredible post than try and make time in my day for it only to have it turn out half the quality. But I am hoping to start a bit of a Blogging Tips series this month where I will talk more about my thoughts on good blogging skills/tips etc. in an attempt not to sound big-headed as I in no way am (and I hope I don’t come across that way!).
Last month (July) was actually a pretty exciting month! I had some great time with a few friends both in person and over the phone. I seem to have become much less socially awkward around people I don’t know all that well this summer and have been spending quite a lot of time getting to know people which has made me really proud of myself.
I started rehearsals for my youth theatre’s summer play and that’s going really well! I learnt all of my lines this morning and I am just really enjoying being in the show. The play isn’t the best one we’ve ever done and I don’t really understand it all that much but it’s still fun and it gives me an opportunity to socialise during the summer which I didn’t used to get all that much and I really hate being socially isolated in the summer. I used to hate the summer exactly because of this fact and since joining my youth theatre I look forward to it continuously after summer ends and before it starts again. It’s going to be a great show! I can’t wait until I get to see a full run through. This year I don’t have all that many lines and not as many as I usually get (again, not trying to sound big-headed) but I actually really enjoy the parts I have and I think I’ve been learning a lot more about acting from having smaller parts, as crazy as it seems. I guess it’s because I only have a very limited amount of time to actually enjoy being on stage doing what I love, so I put a bit more effort into it.
Another exciting thing that is going to be happening in my life very soon is that I’m going to be making my own short film, which is something I’ve never done before and I have absolutely zero experience in it but it’s for course work and is something I really want to do. It’s going to be a lot of hard work and effort especially given that there are lots of other units within the course which are going to be difficult, but hopefully it will all be worth it and I’ll have an amazing film and a qualification at the end of it! Very exciting!
Tomorrow I’m going to be posting my July Favourites post so keep an eye out for that! Also, let me know in the comments if you would like to see more Life Update posts!
