School holiday full of surprises
Tue, 17 Jul 2012 1:07p.m.
After asking several people from school how theyre holidays have been going, I have heard a lot about 'partying up' and 'enjoying the single life' for the holidays. Its all a boring cliche now. Im pretty sick of hearing it. I've given myself a mission. I am in search of someone who will tell me that they've been doing something spontanious. Last week, I unexpectedly spent the day with 'the Brown Brother' (Joshua Iosefo), while he was being interviewed by John Campbell. I got to learn more about the television industry which I'm quite keen to get involved with in the future. It was awesome! http://www.3news.co.nz/Mt-Roskill-Grammar-prefects-inspiring-speech/tabid/817/articleID/260423/Default.aspx I went to my school ball with a beautiful young woman I used to go to intermediate with. I was enjoying the fact she was having a wonderful time and I was really hoping to get somewhere 'special' with this girl... But that was a fail! However, that moment of dissapointment turned into a moment of absolute GLORY after recieving a call from dad telling me I have officially become a big brother to another Samoan baby boy. 7lb at 6.20am. I couldnt wait to get to birthcare and meet my new bro. He was named after his Nana who passed at the beginning of the year. Ive enjoyed watching my 3 year old brother adjust to the fact that he is no longer the center of attention.
For the last week of the holidays I passed my learners license, FINALLY!! I spent the remainder of the week going to The Massive Physical Theatre Company Workshop to upgrade my drama knowledge, learning more about the physical theatre and NZ theatre form. It was awsome to experience the physical side of theatre but I struggle with being shutdown on the spot. After devising a short peice in a short time frame and performing it to strangers, the tutors really do attack you but they make their point and in the end, they give you constructive criticism and let you do it again. Just taking it in and listening to what needs to be worked on really helped me to expand my knowledge of physical theatre. I was killin it these holidays!!'
Now thats a REAL school holiday!! School this week! Feeling refreshed and ready. AlofasPolyboy
