I am back from my extended stay in LA. Gaining some experience out there was priceless. It really clues me in to my likes and dislikes. Experiences that highlight what your goals are are critical to all artists.

The new semester has started and already has my head spinning. There are so many possibilities this semester. We have show to put together in less than 8 weeks, a possible trip to ACDF in Louisiana, and a possible trip to France. A tour in France would make this year more exciting and wonderful than ever.

Hopefully in between all of this I can find some time to update my blog, and continue being creative. My creative outlets are dancing, drawing, playing the piano, and taking photographs. If I have to force myself to find time for all of these things, then I will. I have too many ideas swirling around in my brain and I need to get them out so I can see them.

The biggest news is that I was cast as a principle role in our production this semester. There were about 6 big parts that were cast. We are putting on a variation of The Wizard of Oz. Our version will be called The Wyos of Oz. All of the music will be played on stage by the band The Wyos. It is going to be an abstracted version of the original Wizard. I was cast as the equivalent of Glenda the Good Witch. I am excited to create a character and try my hand at a little acting along with my dancing. This will be a great experience and wonderful challenge for me to take on.
Good things, good things.
