I don't think I've mentioned before, but I"m directing Godspell for the crew for Good Friday. It's been a huge task, but things are going great. I couldn't ask for a better cast... they are so talented and so excited and enthusiastic... it's totally humbling for me. Amazing how a small idea could transform into something that is so much fun, though a TON of work. I'm floored by these people who have stepped into the roles and just take it on full force... who knew the crew was so talented?
I've gotten a little flustered by some criticism we've been hit with, and some negative words, but I think Godspell could really bring Jesus to life for some people, so we push on and hold our heads high. Just hoping I don't lose any more of my cast at this point. It'd be a huge hit without each of them, who add so much to this project individually and as a great ensemble. I feel so blessed by these people and look forward to each rehearsal. 4 weeks to put on a show is quite a task, but I think we'll do great! :)
On top of that, my job is just a huge energy sucker. It's going well, minus tifts with a co-worker on a daily basis, which I'm trying to push through with integrity and without freaking out on them. I just find myself totally worn down at the end of the week. Probably mostly because all of my spare time is divided between Godspell, youth group, ship events, and the ward when I can get down there, not to mention sleep.
Sleep has been a big issues lately though. I think the major part is caffeine intake. I've been watching that a bit... also the book I'm reading just took an intense turn which has been taking over my dreams a bit. Sleep has not come easy, and when it does, the dreams are insane, but I'll take what I can get. Without sleep, man am I an ugly person... I try my best, but it's pretty rough. Yesterday, I was just delirious by the middle of the work day. Thankfully I was able to go out and play Frisbee and go to dinner for a friend's birthday with energy.
Anyway... I'm realizing that this post is starting to sound delirious...:) I slept in today, and I've been working on my budget for the last 2.5 hours, so my brain is fried. Hopefully the rest of the day will be nice and chill: )
I just wanted to let you guys know what's been up with me and that after Easter, I"ll be working back in Reception again for a short time, so hopefully you'll get lots of posts from me coming shortly;)
