Goings Ons

So what has happened since the last time I decided to update this thing? Not a whole lot. The usual beginning of the year adventures. Two weeks ago, Audrina attended the Regional Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. This is a conference for theatre majors in college to go and attend workshops, the actors can be judged on monologues that they present, and designers can take a show and get judged for it. This year, Audrina took her set design for The Water Engine and Mr. Happiness. These were two plays by David Mamet and they were performed here at Clarion in October. Here is a picture of Audrina's display.

There were a few other set designs that were there, but Audrina won! This means that she gets to go to Washington D.C. in April for the National Competition. There will be seven other set designs there for her to compete with. Her award is officially the Barbizon Award for Excellence in Scenic Design. Along with the model of her set, she took pictures, all of her draftings of the set, and even a microphone that she made for the show because she also built some of the props. Here is a picture of the model of her set.

( I have no idea how she does this...I mean look at the tiny chairs!)

Needlessly to say, she is pretty psyched and nervous at the same time. More to come on that later.

Not too much has happened with me. I'm still waiting for my teaching certificate and my diploma. I've been graduated for almost a month and I don't have either one yet. How do they expect us to get jobs when they don't get us the necessary paperwork to apply for them. Every district that I would apply to requires me to send them a copy of my certificate and everything but I don't have either one yet. I would like to start working so I have some sort of income but as of yet, nothing.

So there's a little of what's been going on here. Not much as you can see.

You should write more about yourself and less about me.
