Music: Really just all of the music that I could find on YouTube
Mood: Too tired to actually be functioning without sugar
So, sorry it’s been a while, I’ve been rather busy, and have been procrastinating my posts for MONTHS! I promise I am the QUEEN of procrastination 😦
I managed to get into a show!!!! Yep, what a concept. I am the lead antagonist for once which is exciting of course, but I really need to be on the ball for this, meaning a CHARACTER JOURNAL!!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about doing it online for a while now, because typing is easy for me and much faster. So, here’s to emotion, theatre, and roles!
Since today was just a read-thru, (first rehearsal), so my character (and I!!!) didn’t get too challenged. Here goes. Don’t judge me for the crappy writing, I’m still learning and would love any comments you guys could give me!!!
Greetings, my name is Shan-Yu and I am 38 years old. I have dark brown hair, yellow eyes and a muscular, giant figure. I’m quite brilliant, actually. When I was a child I lived with my Mother and Father in a clan in Mongolia. When I was 9 years old, I was forced to move in with my betrothed’s family. Meanwhile, my Father was poisoned, so I went back to claim my title as family leader. My half brother happened to think that he deserved to be the leader of our family. He really thought it right until the minute that I killed him. Poor, ignorant child. Well, even I have to admit that I felt a little guilty after I ended him, after all, he was the first to die to allow the great Shan-Yu to lead, and definitely not the last. Nor the greatest. That would be the last that I would ever feel the pathetic emotion of guilt. Regret and guilt are so pointless, there is really no point to reliving the past in your mind, it distracts you from all of the things you could be doing in the present. Like, invading China for instance.
Well, that’s all for my character journal today, more tomorrow and pretty much every day for the next 2-ish months. I’m excited, but already getting lazy, really didn’t want to do my homework today, and it was just read-thru! How am I going to survive when I’ve got Mutual, and blocking/singing rehearsal? I’m almost glad that we only have a short time to do this show (only a month ’til opening night, although to be fair, we’re only doing a few scenes out of it), but at the same time, I am scared, since I’m going to have to do a lot of work at home for this show!!!
Good thing I’m friends with the stage manager.
I met a new girl at school today, she was really sweet and had green and purple hair! Those colors look really good together sometimes! We had a tornado drill in Gym class today, and I always hate those, although I am glad that we have them, I can’t imagine what it would be like to not know what to do in event of an actual tornado!!!
I’m really super tired though,
