Thanks guys for all your well wishes! I will get to replying to comments, it's just been a busy week! Still getting used to the change in work schedule which, yay more hours but boo as it takes away my evening time. Ah well. Such is life.

Still not sure if I'm going to send in my resume to audition of not. I mean, it's SUCH a thrill to be invited to audition but at the same time? I haven't been playing as much as I had in the past and I don't know if I can actually pull it together before the 3rd, especially considering I'm studying for the LSATs too, and frankly, that's more important to me right now. So... we'll see. In happier news, after only 5 of my class sessions I managed to boost my score up to a 150. Booyah.

*points to icon* Extremely depressing what her scores were. *mutters darkly*

Two bits of Fandom News:
1. I'm reccing for [ profile] crack_broom this month, Remus/Bill. I already have a couple of ideas of what to rec, but if you guys have a favourite fic or piece of art, shout it out!

2. Am doing LMoM this year. I must be insane. But... I think it'll help my brain get off the insane plot kick it's on lately. Now, just so long as all my fics for this aren't 6k a day, we'll be set. I have a really neat overarching plot idea. HOWEVER. I want input from you guys. I want to do 31 different pairings/permeations. Thus, Remus/Lily, Remus/Lily/James and Remus/Lily/Sirius are three different pairings. So -- suggest! And if you run out of room, comments are brilliant too. :D

Uh... so maybe I should open my mail a bit more often.

I have a letter in my hand, from the Cleveland Orchestra, inviting me to audition for a substitute violin.


Holy. Shit.

I think I'm in a state of shock.

I suppose... nothing to lose by just sending in my resume... Just have a shitload of music to find.

Well, the list is up and I didn't get in. I'm not as disappointed as I thought I'd be. I'm really fucking pissed off.

1. The girl who is playing Jo -- couldn't even come to call backs as she was "at a performance out of state". So... because EVERYONE ELSE could be there, she gets a freebie and right in for Jo?

2. Three out of the four March sisters were cast from the girls who were up for Jo. So... how is that fair to any of us who had two fucking days to prepare other material for Meg? Whereas everyone knows the stuff that Jo has to sing, especially as the song to sing for callbacks was "Astonishing".

I'm really pissed off. The casting is horrible for this. No one is the right ages. None of the girls really LOOK alike and like a family.

This is absolute bull shit is what it is.

I'll tell you one thing. If I wasn't cast because they think I'm going to play in the pit and they need a violin in the pit (as it's a huge string show) they have another fucking thing coming.

In about 20 minutes I should, theoretically know the results of Little Women call backs. I've been obsessively refreshing the results page since... oh, since Saturday. JUST in case they decided to post it early. But now it's down to the wire and I feel ready to throw up.

Hopefully they're going to post this online right at nine and put me out of my misery.

I just... I'm very, very afraid I got my hopes up too high only to really crash and burn in a few minutes.

Can one give onesself an ulcer in twentyish minutes?

Happier news -- I arrived late to the love meme. I was in the other one and got a couple of nice comments. So -- here I am again should you feel so inclined.

It's 8:51am. Oh god. Oh God. Oh god.

thescarletwoman: (Theatre // The Full Monty :: Did I Captu)
Off to the callbacks that is. Once this whole experience is over I'll be back to replying to comments. I just have been really, really concentrating on preparing for this audition. Found out yesterday that the turnout was somewhere between 40-50 girls for 4 roles. And they're calling back 12.

So... yeah. *gulp*

Wish me luck! I'll be back with a full update on how it went. :D
thescarletwoman: (Theatre // Victor/Victoria :: World's a)
First of all, thank you to everyone for their well wishes. They... let's just say they mean the world to me. I'll answer more personally later, but I at least wanted to say thank you. ♥♥

Audition results come out on Friday. Consequently, this has been the longest week of my life.


I just got an email from Almi that... there are call-backs and I'm up for a call back. Which is most DEFINITELY yay.

However... I'm up for Meg, not Jo. This wouldn't be such a big deal if it wasn't for the fact that Meg is a soprano and I'm decidedly... not. Meg hits high Gb-s... Jo has one insanely high note, but otherwise, she's more of a mezzo. And looking at everyone who is up for Jo... they're all sopranos and all the ones up for Meg are altos/mezzos. So I don't get it.

I'm going to do it, of course -- but it just seems odd.

Thoughts or advice? *looks at seasoned actors around here* would you call/email and ask if there was a mistake on the call-back sheet? Or should I just go to the callback and see what happens?

Whelp... my audition is today. I've kept this under wraps because... I actually haven't said a word to anyone around here before a few days ago. I'm auditioning for our production of Little Women and I'm going for Jo. And I know the competition out there, but dammit, I can sing the hell out of "Astonishing"... so... we're giving it a shot. Good luck vibes will be muchly appreciated!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Hey guys!

I know I haven't been around much this past week and most likely won't be around much the next couple either.


I've been practicing my little fingers off getting ready for my audition. Which, I now have it confirmed: wednesday evening, March 7th at 6pm. EEEK! By the time night comes, my wrists are dead and not really up to sitting at the computer for an evening. I'm attempting to be super consciencious this time around and NOT doing anything that will get me injured before I go.

So this weekend is off to Cleveland for Honours Band. Yaye. And *cough* no, I haven't looked at the music but it'll work on the whole 'sight reading' part of the audition.

Then I'll be in bright, sunny, warm (heh. yeah, right) Winnipeg for the beginning of March. SO excited and I'll be able to update, so long as [ profile] rose_whispers allows me to steal her computer. ;)

Things are well and headspace is slowly getting better. My therapist absolutely rocks.

Love you all! ♥♥♥♥

Well, thanks to everyone who gave me good luck vibes today. I wish I could say they helped...

Alas, I have another shitty chair position. In fact it's the same fucking chair position I had last year. 8th chair; first violin out of nine. So guess who gets to learn the first violin parts of Shostakovitch 5th and Beethoven Fidelo Overture in less than a month?

YAY! That would be me. *cough* excuse the sarcasm.

I'm just really pissed off right now and in one of those, "I hate this school" modes. This is when I just thank my lucky stars I'm graduating this year and I'm going to be done and out of here by May 7th. (is it too early to start a countdown?) And if you're wondering why I haven't transferred... I LOVE the musicology faculty here. That is the only reason I've stayed.

So... by orchestra standings... it'll be a long year.

At least I have Company to look forward to. Thank god Dr Hartzell is running that. I get to play concertmaster for that. *pause* someone around here has their head screwed on.

And as for me... well, I'm skating this year. I'm doing the bare-minimum for everything and concentrating on my musicology degree. Apparently doing all the practicing I could over the summer did nothing (or else it was politics... which-ever you prefer...) so why bother? Thus... expect to see me around a lot more... even moreso than I was now.

Apparently (as per my card I just got from [ profile] thewlisian_afer) today is Waffle Day. So everyone, go out and eat a waffle. XD

In other news, I'm suddenly scared to death for my audition today. I was fine up through the past couple of days (though I think the audition is what put me in my mood lately) but suddenly this morning I got an attack of the nerves. I'm more prepared than I've ever been... and yet I'm scared to death.

My audition is at 1:10 and it's my last one for Oltman ever.

I'm going to need lots of luck today. *wibbles*

I think I need that drink... *glances at icon*
