Dear Britt, this week I've been #5
|I loved shooting our autumnal outfits yesterday!!|
Just reading about how proud you are of yourself and your classmates makes my heart glow.. Can you imagine my glowing heart?
What a great feeling and state of mind are you in right now. And I am so excited to see where these auditions will get you. Because I will be the proudest friend in the world on the night of your premier.
This week has been a really good one. I am finally at a point where I actually realise I am studying at the Theatreschool of Amsterdam. And that it is the only school I could be at right now.
My classes went great, I have learned so much, my head explodes.. And I have had the loveliest after school chatty- kathy sessions with my classmates.
I am slowly starting to realise that I am good enough for this school.. Which is weird because I've already been here a couple of months. But it's more like I finally know how much I'm already capable of doing and what my actual base is, when it comes down to acting, singing and dancing. There's so much I want to explore and try, just to see how much it fits me and my (theatrical) personality. And I get 4 full years to do that with teachers who want to teach and inspire and classmates with so much talent and drive it's overwhelming.
I got so much energy from going to school this week. But after reading & studying Hamlet and Brecht songs and writing monologues all week I was so happy to finally spend time with my family on friday. And to have some quality-time with you.
My sister and I don't see eachother for days and then all of a sudden I'm home before midnight and it all gets a bit confusing. We're still trying to figure out how to compromise on the weekends.
I live in the Hague but I'm alive in Amsterdam (how dramatic.. but you get the point) and knowing that I will be moving out soon is both scary and exciting.
I cannot wait untill I have my own place in Amsterdam and that going home actually means I am going back to spend some time with family and friends and not just because I cannot sleep at school.
I am going back to trying to fit in as many things of my to-do list as possible within the next hour.
Love you lots. Kisses on your elbows,
