Kari goes to Lincoln, England
I got up and went to radio workshop and seminar. We had to go into another room and listen to a couple of packages and pick one to do a radio show about. The one that both groups picked was the one about musicians in America and how they sing differently in order to make it into the American market. They needed someone to interview and both of the groups thought that I would make a great interviewee. The other group ended up using someone else but because my group had four people and we all had to pick roles. Harry was the BA; Danielle was the producer and Dave the presenter, so the topic matter at hand and me not having a role made me a perfect interviewee. While Harry and Danielle were working on writing cues and finding music and such for the program Dave and I were working on writing the script. We thought that we had to have it finished for next week and then present it in next week's seminar. We were sitting in the studio when Annabelle walked in and said that they had already gone through their program. That's when I started freaking out because we had to get done in 5 minutes and we didn't have that much of our script written. When we went back into the main studio where our group always meets, Chris' group went and there wasn't any time left for our group to go so we would have to go next week. I was so relieved. After radio workshop instead of having the usual seminar we had the lecture that was missed on Monday. I talked to Jason one of the other Americans before class and I hadn't talked to him in about three weeks. It was nice to catch up with him. The lecture was mostly about our live programs that we would begin producing soon. After lecture I came back and had lots to work on before my play run through that evening. I came back and started getting ready and when I used my hair dryer I blew up my converter. This was no good. This meant that I couldn't use my straightener. I really wanted to straighten my hair so I borrowed my flat mate Viv's straightener. I really like her straightener because it has a super long cord and I can stand in the bathroom and straighten my hair. There is no outlet in the bathroom and the cord on my straightener is not long enough to reach into the bathroom. Viv's has a super long cord and it was really nice to be able to look in the mirror and do my hair instead of straightening parts of it and then walking into the bathroom to check how it looked. It was 7PM and I was reading through my lines before rehearsal when Elli stopped by and asked if I wanted to go to the Shed for a quick drink before practice. I told her I didn't have much time and she convinced me to come for a quick drink because I hadn't really seen any of my flat mates in about two weeks. It was a really fast drink and then I had to head off to practice. This was the first time that we had ever run through the whole show and it was really fun to watch and see the other scenes that I am not in coming together. I am really excited for the shows and think they will be a lot of fun. After rehearsal we went out together as a society and this was a first ever. We started out at the glasshouse and it was really nice to chat with the others outside of practice in a less formal environment. I really like these people; they are a lot of fun. A bunch of the group headed off to Ritzy's but there were a few of us who had to finish our pitchers first so we stayed behind. The people that stayed were Ben, Stacey, Jamie, Toby, Ian and Sarah and there might have been someone else too. I think we ended up staying at the glasshouse for an hour longer. I liked the group that stayed and we had a nice chat. Then we walked to Ritzys and met up with the rest of the group. I had a lot of fun at Ritzy's. There are three different floors and we were all over the place. It was a nice change because usually when I have gone we have only stayed on the second floor so it was fun to move around. I had a really good time and want to go out with the play group again sometime. My flat mate Elli was there and so I walked home with her.
