Torn

Man, I'm a blogging machine. (That, or I have tons of housework to do and I'm the biggest procrastinator ever)

Looking ahead to the new year, there are a few things I'd like to do. One is, of course, continue on with my small group/Bible study. I love those folks! I couldn't imagine a week without them! I'd also like to help with my church's Alpha program. Alpha is a "come as you are and ask what you'd like" introductory course to Christianity. It's really a great program, and I've been wanting to get involved for a while now. Finally, in the spirit of trying new things and capitalizing on my hammy personality, I want to take an acting class. I actually found one that's resonably priced and starts in January, too!

The only catch? Every one of these weekly events happen on Wednesdays. AAARRRGGG!!! I don't want to have to choose! Of course, in reality, I couldn't do them all anyway, cause if you factor young adults in there, too, every other Monday, I'd have something going on four nights a week. Insanity.

This acting class looks like so much fun. I've never been in a play before (if you don't count the Sunday School Christmas pageants), and I only took drama in grade 8. I don't know if it's the higher-than-usual number of plays I've seen in the last while or what, but I have an itch to act, mostly cause I think it would be such a gas!

Anyone want to take the course with me? Details are here. It's the first course, called "Acting for the fun of it" (Though I may end up going for the improv course on Thursday nights).

ps. Elaine: I don't have your email address: send me an email (use the link in my profile) so I can add you to my address book. BTW, thanks so much for the card - your kind words meant a lot, thank you. Now quit lurking, girl! I know you're here! Leave a comment! ;)

While I can't be there to go acting class with you, allow me to be the first to cheer you on - hoo-ray, girl - good for you. You'll be great.

I think you would be a great actress although I have nothing to back this up except a feeling.
Maybe you could get some people together and start your own acting class. Or get some people together and convince someone to run an acting class when it works for you. And possibly works for the other people you get in to take the class with.
Acting is about being creative so be creative and do it.
And when you and your group are touring Canada and you get to a hick town that's really cold and windy all the time I will come and see your show and say I knew that girl when she was just starting out..

An acting class! That sounds like so much fun! Well, actually I would lock up and stand there frozen, because I'm a big scaredy cat when it comes to being in front of strangers. But you know, if I were a different person entirely, an acting class would be so fun!
