If you guys remember, I had my first theatre audition on the 21st January. It was in London, I live just outside London, which led to me getting three trains to the location. I was very nervous at first but when I met the producer, writer and other auditioners, I felt really relaxed! The audition was made up of a mix of activities and towards the end of the audition we discussed what ideas we had for the theme of the upcoming show about education. Overall, the audition was really relaxed and they were really looking for people who can contribute to the production and bring new ideas.
Last Tuesday I got an e-mail that I have a place to join the company!🎭 They sent me the session dates and I am sooo excited! I went to the first session on Tuesday and I had a great time. The majority of the session was about getting to know each other and doing some activities to get us more comfortable in the environment. What was really great was that we came up with a set of values that we should all follow such as respecting one another, being kind, respecting another’s opinions and ideas etc. It was crazy to realise that people in my audition didn’t make it and the producer said that we must have really impressed them in our auditions if we got a place in the company! This also means that I’m in the company for a year and I can get involved in the next three shows without auditioning😊
I received my mock results today and I am pretty pleased with my results. I got:
Media Studies: C
I’m not really bothered about my media studies results because the questions that came up where ones that we haven’t done in class. My Media teacher said that we should ignore the grade because we hadn’t studied the topics😂 I’m really happy with my Biology grade, I honestly thought I was going to get an E or D. I am ecstatic about getting a A in psychology because that was the grade I was most nervous about because I thought the mock was way too hard!
I’ve had quite a busy and good week overall, but I have a lot of homework to do this weekend.
I hope you guys have had a great week and please comment below what you’ve been up to!
Today was the last day I had to finish and render my opening sequence of my documentary for media. I’ve told you guys before that for media studies I’m making an opening sequence to a documentary about how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media affect young people. I’ve finished editing it and I have finally handed it to my teacher and I’m quite glad to say that I’m quite proud of it. I know I said I would show you guys but it’s on one of the school network folders and hopefully I’ll upload it to my blog next week. I’d really like to have you guys opinion on it so, expect an opening sequence to a document on my blog next week!
I’ve had such a good week, I’m nearly haflway through reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I’m enjoying it very much so far. I was quite a bit annoyed at Harry at the beginning of the book because of the way he treated his friends but I still love Harry☺️ if you were wondering, my favourite character is Hermione because she is hardworking, sometimes insensitive but she has everyone’s best interest at heart. Also, she is very loyal to Harry, who’s your favourite character is the books? I’ve been talking about Harry Potter a lot lately but I love the movies and this is the first time I’m reading the books and I knew I was going to love it!
I’ve got my audition tomorrow!… and I feel pretty relaxed. I haven’t been to this theatre before in London and I hardly know my way around London however, I know the route and in all honesty I’m quite excited. I haven’t been to a proper audition before and this will be a great experience. I know I sound confident now but I know when I get there I will be so nervous but I know that I will be fine haha😂 If you have any advice for me PLEASE TELL ME because it would be great!😂
I hope you guys have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to!
I have been bombarded with work this week. I’ve had 3 assessment in 3 days and I’ve got mocks coming up in January. I’ve been given a timetable for my mocks and I have 2 of them on the same day😫. I’ve been given a table of what could come up in my psychology exam and I have to go through 4 AS topics that I did last year. Also, I have to mention that my biology exam is 2HOURS AND 15 MINUTES long. It’s longer than any exam I’ve had at GCSE but for the real biology exam we have more than one paper that are at least 2 hours long. I’m glad that we break up for Christmas holiday on Wednesday and technically I don’t have to come in for periods 1 and 2 because I have a free period. Also, I need to get my secret Santa a present for Wednesday and I have no idea what to them! I’ve usually been quiete bad at finding the right gifts to get people as well lol😂.
Good news! I’ve booked an audition for a theatre in London, they said i don’t have to prepare anything but I should wear suitable clothes to move around. I’m mostly doing this for fun and to gain more confidence in myself. I think it will be a good experience and maybe I could do more in the future. If you have any tips or advice please feel free to comment, it would be really helpful.
Also, my mum and I are going to Manchester on Wednesday. If you remember from my previous posts, I live in my old city so I can finish year 13. It’s going to be great seeing my mum and brother again, I haven’t seen them in about 4 months. I really miss them but I’m trying to really focus on my education this year.
I hope you have been having a great week, please tell me what you’ve been up to☺️
