Tonight is about preparation and relaxation. I am forcing myself to go to bed before midnight. i am cutting my nails to a respectable length and covering them with a layer of clear lacquer. I am packing my handbag full of scripts, books, pencils, a change of shoes and a copy of my application. I am going through my closet while praying to the wardrobe gods to shine their light on the perfect interview outfit. I went to the gym and produced worthwhile sweat. I am watching a movie that always, always, always makes me smile (and contains the best brit pop soundtrack). I am working on Judas, which helps to remind me no matter what there is work I enjoy. I have eaten a wholesome balanced meal. I haven’t had a drink in over a week. And I’m remembering to breath.
And tomorrow. I wake up real early. I sit on a train for 5 hours. I have lunch with a friend while talking about Christian theology. I sit in front of a panel and talk about myself and dramaturgy for forty-five minutes or so. I make them all see how much they want to work with me for the next three years. I get back on a train for 5 hours. I return to my bed.
did you get that dear friends and loyal readers? Ten hours on trains. Jeeze.
