Auditions for the Annual Play

From Yesterday, Thursday, the 16th of January-

Today after school were the Auditions to the annual play my school will be having. Yup, will be. So this is the first one ^_^ Hence the mega excitement =D

So, we had a director called over from Icas, Humzah, and Kamil’s old school where they did their O-levels from. Her name’s Fiza, and she used to be their Literature teacher. Her hair reminds me of Khilji O.o

Now, the auditions were pretty random and all over the place. Like all the things we were told to do. It wasn’t boring like we just had to read out an excerpt from the play itself, or recite a monologue we’d prepared.

First, we were told to walk aimlessly across the auditorium. Then faster, and faster, and faster stiiill till we were nearly running. Then slower, slower, normal pace, then slow motion. Then at normal speed, nod and smile to he who you cross. Then it became, stop and introduce yourself while shaking hands. Some dudes bro hugged or fist bumped, and Ahsen was being all “unique” with his greetings and when I thought he was going for a handshake, he grabbed my hand like you would a lady in the Victorian era, and you a gentleman. And then I could feel him pulling his hand up, with mine too, towards his face- to kiss it?! I don’t know, and I’ll never find out, since the director then changed the exercise to something else, and he dropped my hand. Phew.

But then we had to walk around, and mime out reactions to what the director was narrating. Like she said you’re walking home, it’s a hot summer day. Or you’re bringing home good news to your parents. Or walking through mud. That sort of stuff.

Now, nearly to the classical auditions, she pairs us off and gives us a set scenario. We then had five minutes, more or less, to improvise dialogue to suit that scenario, and give it details, with stage directions, characters, acting, plot, a conclusion, the works.

I got paired off with Zara, and we were given a Maid and Mrs scenario where the two were complaining about their lives to each other. I was the American maid, Sally, working in a British household, with Zara as Mrs. Something Posh I do not Recall.

So, Mrs. Posh summons me, and commands me to brush her hair. I start combing away, and she starts talking about her cheating husband. I ask how she could possibly know that, and she runs off towards the dresser, and pulls out a lipstick that wasn’t hers. “It’s not even my color!” she exclaimed, to which I have both a shocked and confused expression whispering “THAT’s what she’s concerned about?!” to the audience. She then orders me to polish the dusty ol’ dresser, which I rush to do. She then complains about how he only got her sapphires instead of diamonds on this necklace. After that rant, I’m off to shine the silverware. NOW, she snaps at me, mid-rant, “What are you DOING? I thought I told you to comb my lovely locks!!” now I just have this “you’ve-GOT-to-be-kidding-me” expression, and try to say something, but she cuts me off with a “I can do all of this myself, easily! I don’t NEED you. Out, OUT!” and then she storms out of there. I lose my cool, and Sally the American Maid, burst out with a scream, then rushes off stage as soon as she delivers her final line- “You know what, I’m SO done with Britain! You can’t even find a single cup of decent coffee here!”

After which we had the classical auditions start. We were distributed the script, and were told to read out excerpts. I tried out as Alison, this maid with loads of lines, that gets hit on by Giles. (I didn’t know that until I read my last scene. It’s awesome. Just wait.)

I think I did a pretty good job, and I was satisfied with it. Let’s just see if I got the role or not! All I can do is hope >x<

Plus, before auditions the same day, Kamil- the prez of the Theatre Club- asked to sign me up for backstage. I told him, nah, I’ll be auditioning and acting. He said, “Just in case.” -.- “Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence!”

But I did sign up, after auditions xD I signed up for Set since Alya, and MehrNaz were a part of it.

Ayesha was signed up for Backstage Management.

Eeek, I checked my email- they asked for contact information, and I gave my email- and I didn’t get any new mail…

They should’ve sent me something by then, right?! I mean, it was the end of the day, and and they should’ve made up their minds…

Although I don’t think Miss Fiza was too impressed with me =/

Niiice going, Brian, I’m nervous AFTER the actual auditions -.-”

Err, I hope it goes wellllll >~<

Giving Twitter a Go (British Accent Addition)

soooo. yeaaah. i just joined twitter. again. i knoow, i already have (twice, so to speak) but the first one, i honestly was just messing about and mucking it all up [in case you wanted to know, im speaking im typing and thinking with a british accent. cuz i am a brit, and cuz i just watched half of (harry potter and ) the Goblet of Fire (my absolute FAV harry potter film). hence the sudden language shift…’mucking it all up..’] And i gave myself a, dare i admit it, google translated name. yesh. i did. oh, the shame x3 actually, i just find it funny that i did this 😀 i took my real name, google translated it to german (i was germany my entire eighth grade MUNning career and it stuck..) and used that as my username thing…not a great success. and my tweets were utterly ludicrous. 

Moving oon, i had to tie up loose ends and all that, by deactivating my old, second twitter attempt as i wanna recycle its username =3 follow me if anyone cares, and future-me do check out my old stuff like tweets and celebs ive followed. im sure itll be nostalgic and random and downright hilaaaarious =D its @ZeChocoLatte shoot. The I is for Irish.

*accent lost and utterly abandoned by now*

andandand- the second twitter attempt frizzled since i just followed loads of people and just never really tweeted. speaking of people ive followed, its pretttyyy random….ive got things like BBC news, and the Irish Post, the Guardian, and then youtubers like MarcusButlerTv, Jacksgap, Zoella, (noooo. theyre not aaall british >x<  ), Discasp/Casper Lee (ha! i told you soo! ^_^ ) , ConnorFranta, and then stuff like Pll, Sherlock, Percy Jackson and even the NBA and the Bulls. whaaat. knowing my basketball obsession with the sport, its ok, i guess. but i dont really care about any of the official games, though they can be fun to watch . i like the game. not the sport (does that make any sense at all? it did up here in my head…on this here screen it seems pretty stupid, confusing, and silly. huh. ) and considering my superb and completely existent talent and knack at this sport, yeah, this makes total and perfect sense…if i think about it, im possibly gonna end up following loaads of fictional characters and authors a lot more than celebrities (so far one =P ) and singers (1D <3).

speaking of singers and bands and youtube, i watched a 90s tag vid by JoeyGarceffa (new to his stuff, not a regular watcher or anything. it just showed up as a suggestion and seemed interesting so i clicked on it. meh.) and there was a debated question: N’sync or the Backstreet Boys? and ive never heard n’syns music before, and honestly, never even knew how to spell it or that justin timberlake was in that band until i googled it. i astound yall with my brilliance, i know. but the backstreet boys- heard of them! but i havent heard any of their music either…but what i do remember about them a lot is that my brother got this epic beyblade book thing on his birthday when i was like ten, and he eight, when beyblade was all the rage here (season 2: V-force) and it had all the teams and stats and names of members and stuff listed there plus other cool stuff (i must sooo go and look for that long lost book  treasure now…especially since i was rewatching beyblade (still season 1…sorry =P ) but i kinda stopped in between…gotta start off again. dont know when though, i started watching fairy tail…what? im so off track here =P anyways, there was a pun on the name the backstreet boys, and then my brother even told me of a real band called the buck wheat boys, i think..? i dont know. (when i was a kid i thought of yellowish bunnies with scary huge teeth in a field of wheat dressed in little striped purple suits. it was a scary image i had of them. never googled them. ever. still havent.) and so i time traveled and listened to a bunch of (maybe three) BSB songs and i actually like them, and as a kid i think i really couldve wouldve loved them. so yeah. dont know n’sync but i pick BSB =D and ive ot Straight Through My Heart (soldier down) on loop. all day. today. aaaah ❤

ive just unfollowed pll seeing as im a few episodes behind and just got a HUUUGE spoiler >x< so upsettiiiiing, aaarrrrgh. no spoilers and then bam, one through the official twitter. wth -.- =/ what has the world come to…

anyways, now ive forgotten my whole thing and flow( ha, as if. dont kid yourself) as to where this was going and what i was going to say…well.. guess thats all over with =/

tIiaN- Part I- Facebook

The Internet in a Nutshell (tIiaN)- Part I- Facebook

‘The internet is a vast and wonderous wasteland full of cats, raging people, and ponies. But mostly, cats.

Lets take a looksie, shall we?

One of the places you will often incounter on the internet is known as Facebook. It is a very dangerous place full of morons, idiots, farmers, and annoying people who belong on twitter because they are always using hashtags.

eeenayways..

The farmers have a disease which they will try to spread to you and they will try several times a day to make you one of their own. They will constantly come out of nowhere requesting you, yes, requesting not forcing, requesting you to become one of their own. No matter how many times you push them back, they will come back with even greater determination and eventually they will force you into doing it. They will strap you down, they will pry your eyelids open, and make you watch boring shit like (how) you have to attend to the cows and farms and crops every single ten minutes and eventually you may succumb to them or you may not. There are few survivors, many of which have lost their minds to this harsh punishment, some of which have managed to escape.

That is Facebook in a nutshell.’
