The beginning, that's everyone's favorite part right? No not really. Its a scary thing to enter and new group of people. I am a shy person but i don't let those word describe me. I love to laugh and play however its hard to open up to people. Like Mr. Hanks said, no one really wants there ideas to get shot down... I want to set a goal for every week that passes. I want to get to know one new person every week until there isn't one person left to say hello to. I encourage every one to try this.. don't be afraid to speak up and say something, because if you say nothing your voice won't ever be heard. I'm out enjoy!!!
Man...(shighhhh) this was probably one of the most hardest things I've done this year. I loved watching everyone do there thing... i will never forget the cat and chicken because they were SOOO FUNNY!! i couldn't stop laughing...At first i was scared, i didn't want to do it because i have massive stage freight. alli wanted was not to be last and to just get it over with ASAP.. as soon as there was no one left to go my stomach dropped... i now i was next... getting up there everyone was so nice and sweet but i could feel everyone's eyes watching me as i made a complete fool of myself. However, i had fun and i believe that that's what made it better... S/O to my group for having my back before i got up there...but any who i'm out
Regarding your Group Mimed Performance: You remained physically engaged throughout! Yet, I'm looking to see you remain mentally involved as your character. What would your character be thinking in that moment?
I'm black and i'm back
My character is simple, its just me. I cant be describe because in different in different areas of my day. i act accordingly depending on how i feel around the people that are around me.
i wanna describe this character by telling the story like in the movie the great Gatsby the only way he told his story was writing it in a book and reading it as he wrote it but people really don't understand that he's more writing the book then it happening right then and there....
i will be preparing to do this by finishing writing out what i'm gonna say. having the emotion that i felt at the time of the monologue i'm writing and being for real about everything i say so i can have everyone watching feel the way i felt and feel.
i would like the feedback of knowing if i did better on what i asked last time if i did what you told me to understand about getting into the character and not just being there as a somewhat character.
Regarding you Monologue Performance: You did a great job of remaining in character despite the rowdy audience you created with your very funny script. You only broke once, which is giant considering how into and vocal the audience was. Great planning and execution of a young character's thinking. I'm impressed with the story writing and the acting. Keep it up. Next step is translating these lessons into more subtle characters.
Wow last week in theater i finally over came the fact of being shy in class ... i hope??
I was very scared to go up there and present my monologue because i don't really get up in small spaces and make thing bigger. i mean i am a funny outgoing person but like my mother always told me there's a time a a place for all that and i feel that drama isn't the place ... i really like this class and it is giving me chances to find and see different parts to me an i really like the fact that no one had nothing bad to say i hope??
i had a lot of butterflies in my stomach after the first person went because i already had known that i was going next even though i pleaded in asking him to please let me go later in the day but that's okay i guess... i would say hes just pushing me to do better witch i find a great way o bring me from being immature all the time. but that's all i'm out ... till next time
collage time .. i love it ohhh sooo much. I have crated the collage of a life time CARTOONS !!! yess everyone's fave thing to see. My set design is a town called toon town like cartoons but without the car yes i did that. One of the color seams i really wanted to go for was black and white like this one movie i saw and how everything was black and white until they tried new things in life and they gained the colors of life. my set design is coming together slowly but surely but i think i might have a problem ill keep working and see were i get after i finish. I would say the move of my set design would be playful live and out of color. I apes love the shapes that come from words and characters that coming from words is so funny and cute at the same you can only image the progress that it will have i love it and i hope everyone will to...... im out
I was not sure if i needed a blog but i can see that im missing one so here we go ....
you would never image the day i just had but lets forget about it ... i need to get this off this chest.... to much drama and not enough mamas

college is the big aha yes the place after high school were everyone think they will be free an party and enjoy more then what life have to offer.
well they lied
my thoughts about college yes yeah yeah its to be better in life but that's exactly what they said about high school ... a chance to enter a educational space safe and sound...i hate high school.. it has never been safe and sound, so that's what you think college will be...
i know i know I've been negative this whole time but its me getting to the point... i'm 100% going to college i wasted to much time thinking and debating about what to do and what more to do... but lets remember we our all supposed to take life one step at a time and these are mines
1: i'm going to college
2: i'm gonna pass ever class with passing grades the first time
3: i'ma do it all on my own for sure
4: i'm going to community then straight to Uc David college whoo go Aggie's...
5: In college i'm going to study child development and then more in that area
6: After college i'm going to work hard to get the job of my dream( top secret)
7: finally i'm going o do my best in life....
for everyone reading this .... long story short whatever you put your mind to i promise, you can do it... don't every let anyone tell you can't because you can.. write your own story and don't let no one else do it for you.
i'm out peace
stay PLUR my frinds
A costume i can remember well would be the mascot for the fire hill high school. I believe i saw this maybe sometime last year in august. I was most deff not wearing this, it toots was a different brave person. The part being played was a fire. To me there wasn't a lot of details to the outfit ... from my opinion it was just made out of orange, yellow, and red fathers. i thought it was a bird to be honest until some one quoted me because i couldn't stop laughing because the thing was so ugly. the only reason it would stand out would be because i laughed so hard at the ugly thing. week 14
awe the dear sir shakespeare.... nah i didn't find out about him until i came into this class i mean I've heard people say some of his words and what not an i heard about it on movies but NOPE this would be my first. People fall into these types of plays because it about love and romance i think thats about it.... when these no tv and no cell phones people think aye what the heck lets go see this play and then they get emotionally invested in the play...i this taking the emotion that comes with the play and using it to act out the right way without laugh will be good to take from it and getting into more of my character tuts about it. I'm scared kind of because i think besides the lines that i have a big part to do an i scared because i think i could mess the while thing up.
i was asked these two questions. One that i have no clue how to answer but the other i do. Is the Greek and roman theater alive today... my answer is ... every time i go down town i see people dressed an acting and or i see a man working his pupets and hanging out on the corner trying to make some one so yes i think that they are still alive today. I think that is gonna be hard but it will be worth every bit of it so ima give it my all week 11
Regarding your puppet play performance: You did an excellent job with the alteration of your voice, taking on the lower register for your Prince! Was was great was that you changed your voice, but we could still hear you. While is was silly, try to contain your laughter so you don;t break character!
Time to get down to business.. " The Final Scene".
As a group we are preforming Annie the musical but only like two song from it.. we are doing like lip singing and acting it out like they did in the movie. Some i'm so ready .. nah i lied i am completely not but shh don't tell. using the space provided i plan on using every last bit of it... you know what they say the bigger the better witch is so true. some of the thoughts i had in the being about the play would of been that the girls i'm doing it with many be not intersected in doing it and wouldn't really want to so that kind of is still on my mind but besides that i'm just thinking like how are we gonna do all this an i think were doing it this week so its kind of nerve racking on some levels but there's always a way to do it. influences would be that the song of hard knock life was stuck in my head that day nothing to much. i am hoping the audience don st think we some fools but i kind of want that like a silly twist to it but we will see how it goes. but yeah that's pretty much it.
Regarding you final scene: So Annie didn't work out in the end. Seems as though the group dynamic worked against your idea. Remember that in theatre it's a "Yes, and..." business. If those around you are not on board, it may be time to adjust the thinking. Also, it important to consider those you choose to work with. Are they going to aid in you success, or bring you off your game? These lessons are true in every element of life. For your part of the performance, you were true to for, acting with confidence and great character. In fact, you've really grown in this over the last months. Perhaps just confidence or ease in front of this class? You managed to make it happen, and for that I'm proud of you.
