Madness, Homework & Lazyness

With a reather hearty week about to go in pure madness has reached a weekly thing.

On Monday's I am doing work with mum, yesterday I had English, Maths & Science. Luck was on my side because I got 80% in  Science. I normally despise the subject and will hide or reject to do it. But I kind of acted more grown up about. I gave it a try and I seem to getting the hang of science but next year I plan dumping the subject altogether! English also went well *aside* as always. I have to admit I really love Maths & English because they're two subjects I use practically everyday. Maths I use for my business & English, well, I used to do a lot of proof reading for a magazine I worked on. Auto correction has been stuck in my head ever since, which will be a bonus for the English course I plan to be taking in a few months time! Exciting!
On Tuesday's I do work with mum & in the evenings I go to College Street for my arts award. In gold you have to choose two artforms. I have chosen Photography & Jewerly Making. There are a lot of parts to this award. I understand I will have my ups & downs but it's never hard, just simply a challenge!

On Wednesdays I do work with mum & sometimes we might go in to town or on a walk.

On Thursdays I have to go to Matlock in Derbyshire, to take my sister to drama. I normally go shopping with family while we pass the time. This week, my sister has a presentation. We are going to a what a school would call a 'Parent's Evening' which as much sounds fabulous this will be my first time out of there drama school seeing something with the new little generation of Home Educators. I am really looking forward to it.

On Fridays possibably working with mum & Allotmemt with my lovely & amazing friend Izzie. You should defiantly visit her blog: an adventure in homeschooling

On Saturdays I have 'free time'. Which means I can do whatever I want :)

On Sundays I have Drama at Junk Shop Theatre Company.

Bring Me Sunshine | Life as a Musical Theatre Student | #1

Studying and training in Musical Theatre is an absolute dream at the moment, I may be a bit left footed when it comes to Jazz, but even when something doesn't go right we give it the jazz hands.

The students are lovely and so talented, it feels weird to be the eldest and occasionally having to (literally) catch up! During my Fine Art studies I was sort of the 'middle aged' student, but the eldest was 47 years old.

To catch up, what's been happening this past month?
I had the opportunity to participate in Lucy Suggate's 'Swarm Sculptures' at Nottingham Contemporary and rehearse in the amazing new Dance4 studio in September.

I also had the fantastic opportunity to go to my first premiere of 'Hood' in Nottingham for a pilot episode for the TV series starring, local singer/songwriter Josh Kemp and a fellow friends and actors, Adam Guest and Mik Horvath.
It was so wonderful getting to finally catch up with them and would like to personally thank them …

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | Anita And Me

In absolute excitement, I have been so happy and very fortunate to be back performing as Ensemble with Touring Consortium Theatre Company again in 'Anita And Me' at Theatre Royal Nottingham 14th to 18th March 2017.

THURSDAY | 9th March 2017


It's the first rehearsal, I am always nervous before meeting people but the fact I already know four of the ensemble members makes it just that little bit better,  Michelle Smith, Estelle Smith, Alice Gee and Marcus Whybrow who were also in A Tale of Two Cities back in November 2016.

I have to be honest, it felt a bit weird to be going to the same rehearsal venue where I'm involved with two stage productions which ironically are being toured around the UK and each of the show's are exactly ten days apart - I'm currently involved with this production (Anita And Me) and The Grapes of Wrath.

We have commenced rehearsals on the beginning scenes where myself, Alice and Marcus have to run on stage cause chaos in Tollington with t…

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | A Tale Of Two Cities |

You may have noticed in previous weeks, the very delay in posting covers, vlog's and also posting updates! The past two weeks in November have been immersive and utterly incredible.

💖 THURSDAY & FRIDAY ( 17th & 18th )
💖
The rehearsal day had arrived, since finding out my audition was successful in the summer, I had been eagerly counting the days down.

On Thursday (17th) the ensemble also know as the Two Cities Twelves, introduced each other  - luckily I already knew some of the cast ( Mike Newbold, Marcus Whybrow, Michelle Smith and Alice Gee) from previous productions and also as friends but I was certainly thrilled to meet and perform with more like mind and lovely local actors and actresses.
We commenced rehearsing on some of the scenes including 'The Hanging' - which reminded me strangely of my FMP (Fine Art - Final Major Project) earlier this Summer after creating my two five foot puppets.


On Friday we commenced rehearsing the next scenes including my pe…
