We had a warm-up show of sorts last night, as guest performers for another group's show. Performed two of our pieces and had a chance to get used to the stage again. Today is our actual stage rehearsal, so I'll be spending the entirety of this afternoon and most of this evening at the auditorium. Day off tomorrow, for which my feet will be most truly grateful, then regular classes and rehearsals Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Dress rehearsal Friday night, day off Saturday (except for my actual job) and the show Sunday. It's crazy, but I love it. Also, it's doing a great job of keeping my mind off the fact that they haven't yet announced the winners of the short story contest I entered.
And I love my girls. Anyone who's ever performed with a group of any sort (music, theatre, dance) knows the feeling of camaraderie that comes of pulling off some sort of artistic feat together. Over the rehearsal months I practically live with these girls. They are wonderful people, dedicated artists, and true friends. They are also some of the toughest people I know.
