Man, WordPress is so fancy! The stats tracking is particularly bananas. Bordering on Orwellian, even.
So, Chicago is going very, very well. Turns out my fears were unfounded, and I am not doing a shitty* job as Mama after all. The feedback I’ve gotten has been…overwhelming. Superlative upon superlative. Which I do not know how to handle in the least, so I’ve mostly spent the past weekend bouncing around like an idiot, blurting out a series of flustered “thank youuuuuu”s in a panicky falsetto. Poise: I should work on it.
(It’s meant so much, though. There were so many people I was hoping to impress. Fellow performers I’ve admired; new-ish friends who have never seen me really do my thing. This weekend felt great.)
(I’m pretty sure letting go of my natural tendency for self-deprecation and admitting to being kind of good at something means that I will for sure suck real, real hard this coming weekend. IT IS THE WAY OF THINGS.)
Spring Break next week, and then I dive headfirst into Το Κίll α Μοckίngbίrd rehearsals for ΤheαtгeWοгks. I hope my kids are cool. I hope the crew is cool, as it seems most of my favorites are working the overlapping Sunsets αnd Μαrgαrίtαs instead, which makes me über-sad. I also hope I manage to survive the four student matinées what the hell.
…good to know that having a new blog in no way makes my posts more interesting.
