shit gets done at the National Gallery

I went to the National Gallery with my friend Connie today! It was great fun. The only downside of the day was the rain but we got through it. I loved the gallery. We saw Monet, Van Gogh, Degas... ahh it was amazing! I actually got a lot done and I think I can move forward with my project now so that's great :))) I always feel knowledgeable and clever at galleries, they just give off that vibe to me. You know, walking around gazing at beautiful compositions, sketch book in hand. This summer I think art galleries are a good place to spend some time. A few pics to enjoy!
~speak to y'all soon~

whatcha eating there, a big bowl of procrastination? thought so. - my revision timetable


 you've probably guessed from the title - it's one of those days. Those nothing-y kinda days. Hey don't look at me, I did a maths past exam paper this morning! I'm planning on continuing the day as my revision time table says but I'm feeling kinda full from the very long lunch break I just had so...

It is such a beautiful day today. The sun is shining, the sky is blue. It looks like summer outside and it's making me feel really excited! Because of the days' beauty, I went around the house taking a couple of snap shots here and there. In my opinion, everything just looks so much nicer in the sun and at the peak of day. So enjoy! I would have taken a pic of my outfit but I've stayed in my pjs all day ;;)) hope you're enjoying your day where ever you are!
Enjoy these pics too, ~PEACE OUT~

I bet your week wasn't as full on as mine

I was SO busy that I lost all sense of time (meaning I literally had to stop what I was doing and ask myself what day it was)
So I haven't really talked about it on here, but I'm part of Uncover theatre at the Albany and we just finished our show called PHENOMENA which took place over three nights: Thurs 12th, Fri 13th, Sat 14th. It was legendary!!! I had soooo much fun doing it; all the hard work really did pay off. What I would have given to be in the audience to see it myself!

We have been rehearsing it since late 2014, but we did a scratch show of it in early 2014 which was just displaying the idea. It went so incredibly well - a few technical fuck ups, which did cause me to get so angry to the point where I cried backstage - but that doesn't even matter because the mistakes made by the """"""professionals""""""" just made us young, non-professionals look professional, and we were because we handled the mistakes too well for words. We smashed it, and we're taking PHENOMENA on tour!
On the 26th of March, we're performing it at the Battersea Arts Centre for a festival (!!!!!!!)

OK, so my week starting from the 9th went like this (bearing in mind I was at school everyday which finishes at 3.25pm):
  • Monday: 5.30-9pm rehearsal.
  • Tuesday: 5.30-9pm rehearsal.
  • Wednesday: 5.30-9pm rehearsal.
  • Thursday: performance
  • Friday: performance
  • Saturday performance + valentine's party woop!
Then on Sunday 15th, me and friends held a suprise birthday party for our friend which was really fun. We watched a movie, talked, ate pizza and cake and just enjoyed eachother's company! here are some pics from it. :))))))

   


So yeah, this week has been pretty full on. But I can't help smiling when thinking about it. It's been such a good week. Performing, hanging with friends, music, dancing, pizza - what could be better? And now it's half term! A WHOLE WEEK OFF. I'm gonna try and do some revision but I'm also going to give myself time to relax and stuff. Hopefully I'll be blogging a lot more (::: ~Stay cool, PEACE OUT~
