The Theatre Darling

Life and times of a first year theater student, wannabe actress and science enthusiast.
It’s snowing!

What better way to see the hometown?

Too bad I couldn’t take this back as hand luggage.


Reblogging my own photograph only to add I did later take back my great grandfathers typewriter as hand luggage. 

Funny how things go.

Wow.

So… this blog didnt go as well as I’d hoped. Blogging about something you’re actually doing is difficult. Half the time youre so busy doing that thing that you forget all about telling tumblr about it. 

First year is finished, done, over. I made it, passed with a good enough grade. Consumed more alcohol than my more body should be able to handle. Found a flat and a job. Became single. Made beautiful friends. And now I actually miss it. For the first time in my life I’ve found myself counting the days until summer ends. 

Anyway I probably won’t keep this blog up until then, I have another, slightly more known tumblr (typeehypee) that is a little more fun to work with. 

Until September then.

The Golden Shore - The Theatre Darling

This is the first one of the songs I’ve put up here that someone else on tumblr has recorded.  It was recorded by this person, http://thetheatredarling.tumblr.com/, and she did an amazing job, she really has a great voice!

If anyone else interested in recording one of these songs just send me a message and I’ll send you the chords and lyrics.

Okay so this is me.. its a little surreal. I have never let anyone really hear me sing before, or play guitar. These tend to be hidden things. Private Pleasures.

It’s all lies.

I thought for a long time that acting was about lying to people, but I am beginning to realise it’s about being as truthful as physically possible.
