Day 2 - 2:42am

>> Friday, September 11, 2009

Just got home from work. We were doing an inventory count and as that all has to be done after the store closes, I had to stay late and help supervise. Now I'm home and even though I have to be back at work in about 8 hours I'm too wired to go to sleep. My mind has been racing all day long with things I can do and "next steps" I can take to help get back into the acting and music scenes.

I actually got an email today from Equity Showcase Theatre - a very well-known theatre/film school in Toronto that has been teaching classes and workshops for a really long time. I've taken courses there before (back in the day when I was right out of college), and the classes are always taught by working actors, directors, or other professionals in the business and are sometimes really hard to get into. There's a couple of fall session classes that sound really interesting to me, but part of me is really intimidated by the thought of being in a theatre class environment again. It's been so long, what if I've forgotten everything? I need to decide soon though - registration deadlines are looming and I know from experience that most of their classes will fill up quickly. Should I do the Classical Theatre Lab, or just sign up as an observer? Or, should I forget Equity Showcase altogether for now and just re-take the actor's introductory course at Sears & Switzer? (another acting school that's really good that I've taken classes at). That would be more comfortable for me - more like dipping my toe into the cold water rather than jumping right in.

Hmmm . . .

I would take the introductory one at Sears.....everything will come back to you ...you will feel more confident ...enthused, excited etc.
You can take the other next time,with more confidence & determination.

I agree! Plus, if you never take the risk you'll spend much time after wondering what would happen if you did. What's the worst that could happen?

You have nothing to lose and much to gain! Go for it! YOU can do it cause through Christ all things, big and small are made possible. Made... easy! Yayaya wooo:)

Go for it. Either one I think would be helpful. Get your feet wet, awake inside you that which has been asleep for a while. I am so proud of you Suzanne!
