Confession: audition is one my absolute favorite words! When I hear it, my heart speeds up a bit, and I remember all the auditions in my life, from middle school through adulthood. The memorization of a monologue, the waiting for my turn to get up on the stage and show ’em what I’ve got, the excitement of finding out which role I’ll play. Yes, I’m an artist, and theatre is my favorite way to express myself. You might not know this about me because I haven’t auditioned for a play in about 7 years…until now! This past weekend, I auditioned for a role in Pride and Prejudice at our local arts center. And I got the role of Lady Lucas. It’s a small part, but I had written all over the information sheet that I was too busy for a large role, so I’m not surprised. The first read-through is tomorrow evening. I couldn’t be more excited!
In other news, I’ve made a goal to run two miles a day for the rest of this month. It’s going well so far, and gives me hope that I can continue with some sort of exercise on a regular basis. I’m running on the treadmill, which isn’t my favorite, but I’ll be able to run with the jogging stroller once the older boys are in school. Now, that’s something I’m looking forward to 🙂
