Theater Conservatory Confidential: Second Semester, or What you Will

Eli Diamond heads once more unto the breach!

In two days, I will be flying back to New York, thus beginning the whole adjustment phase again. If there’s one thing that I remember hating the last time I came back, it was readjusting to life over there. When I’m home, I have plenty of food, a really comfy bed, and I don’t have to worry about waking anyone up ever; after all, it’s my room, my rules. But soon that will all change again, as I need to head back to my little room for another 7 weeks before I return for Spring Break.

This isn’t to say I’m not excited for the new semester. I’m excited to jump back into my work, and excited to get back to seeing all the people I met last semester, but the first week back is going to be painful. I’ve had a wonderful break in the city, and, even though it was a little bit too long, I’m going to miss it. I’m going to miss being able to go to my favorite cafés and reading. I’m going to miss picking up milk tea from the random stores around the Sunset. Most of all though, I’m going to miss my parents, friends and girlfriend.

It’s been a hard time getting used to seeing everyone again, and I just wish I could spend a little bit more time with everyone, but that’s kinda how things have to go. I go away, but I will keep in contact with all of them, especially my parents, who I developed a newfound appreciation for. I spent a long time going from person to person this break, making sure I didn’t miss anyone, and of course, I did miss quite a few people. I feel really bad, but I hope they know I’ll see them over the Spring/Summer Breaks.

While I was here though, I was able to apply the technique to a reading I was a part of, and it helped me realize that even though I love where I am with the technique, school’s definitely been missed. I cannot wait to dive headfirst into learning the technique for my second semester. I have a lot to learn, and hopefully a lot I can bring back to San Francisco during the summer.

The first thing I need to do though when I get back: Laundry.
