decision time

On Monday I sat in the bowels of Zellerbach waiting for my acting class to start, fidgeting in my folding chair, sadly turning down Ben-jammin’s offer of Junior Mints by thinking of what a fatty-fat-fat I would be if I ate them, listening to conversations flying across the room about what show was this weekend and who was in it. The usual.

Then our instructor arrived, and we started class by circling up and listening to him read select passages from books that follow Stanislavski’s method of physical acting. At various intervals, he punctuated our intellectual storytime with his recurrent statement that “Acting is action,” then, at one point, the admission that there were parts of his life he probably wouldn’t have gotten through without art.

I think we could all relate.

He talked about how when you feel like shit, it’s really easy to do nothing, but how doing nothing makes you feel even more like shit, and how you have to get up and do something, anything, as long as it’s active, and it doesn’t matter if it’s the wrong decision because you can find out later. The point is you can’t sit there thinking about how miserable you are. You can’t even sit there and think about what to do. You have to just do.

And then he segued neatly into the next topic.

There are a million different ways a person might brush his teeth in the morning. The student rushing to an 8 AM class looks different from the old man with only four teeth left, who looks different from the hypochondriac, who looks different from the guy preparing for a first date, who looks different from a vampire. An actor’s job is to figure out which of those actions looks best for the character, and to decide to do it, and commit to it, and execute it. Committing to an action is the difference between a half-assed actor who looks like he’s acting and an actor who looks like a human reacting to a situation. When an actor doesn’t decide on an action, it’s just a body onstage with words spewing out of it.

And the lesson of the day was to Make The Decision. Action brings things to life. If you’re rehearsing for a performance or if you’re lying on your couch eating your way through your third pint of Ben and Jerry’s, decide on an action. Commit to it. Execute it. Try something new. Fail spectacularly. You’re not going to get it right every time. You’re not supposed to.

I mean, I don’t think this is a novel idea or anything, but it is so true, and so hard to actually follow. But sitting around moping and letting your self-critical thoughts eat away at you (while you eat away at your ice cream) is probably the worst thing you can do to yourself when you feel like shit.

So here’re three pieces of internet gold that help me deal:
And when those just don’t cut it for me, I have my own personalized Sad Trombone List, which includes but is not limited to the following:
  • Go to Union Square and get lost in the crowds. People-watch.
  • Buy cute underwear. (This perhaps explains why I have 40+ pairs of cotton underwear.)
  • Eat donut holes and old fashioned donuts. (Or whatever your favorite is.)
  • Take a bath. (Because I can’t remember when the last time I did was.)
  • Pick a musical and sing along to every number.
  • Go for a swim. Be sure to wear lipstick.
  • Watch videos of laughing babies on YouTube.
Recently I’ve been doing a lot more crying than is probably healthy, and I'm sick of it. So starting today, I am going to try to make conscious decisions about what I am doing with my time and then follow through on them, and I will stop wallowing in miseries past and wondering what's wrong with me and instead be present and conscious and responsive, in the hope that fully engaging in the life in front of me will prove an effective way of making my own luck.

chest monster

I always feel a little awkward wearing any of my Harry Potter t-shirts because 1) it's really geeky, and 2) there's a face popping out of my chest. (A la Harry's chest monster.)

(I don't suppose the book reference makes this any less geeky.)

Above, clear plastic headband: Claire's. Gray cardigan: Uniqlo. Harry Potter t-shirt: Hot Topic. Denim shorts: mother's + scissors. Gray argyle tights: H&M. Brown oxfords: Payless.

Above, I'm pretty sure this is only 3rd day hair, which is sad and kind of gross.

this is just to say

I think there's an episode of Hey Arnold! in which Mr. Simmons reads a poem to the class that's a parody of the William Carlos Williams poem about plums in an icebox, but using tomatoes instead. (Maybe.) In any case, they were delicious.

what else is blossoming?

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

Confession: As much as I enjoy schlepping with the boys, I like looking like a girl way more.

Seasonal shopping?

I have a question for all 2.5 of my readers.

I know people change moisturizers and pile on scarves in the winter, and I know it makes sense to buy season-specific clothing like swimsuits for summer, but I've noticed that I find myself buying more secondhand items in the summer and more new stuff in the winter. Maybe it’s Christmastime consumerism that makes me crave new knitwear, new party dresses, and new shoes when it starts getting cold. Maybe it’s because people have more garage sales in the summer, or because I have more time to scour thrift stores when I’m not in school. I don’t really know. But I do know that I always lean toward secondhand in the summer and shiny-new in the winter, so my question(s) is (are) this:

Does anyone else do this, or am I just really susceptible to holiday shopping itches? Do you gravitate toward certain types of shopping during summer as opposed to winter?

put it away

Definitely having a What The Hell Am I Wearing moment in this outfit, but I do love this sweater dearly. Alas, the proportions are so wrong here:

Above, sweater: mother's. Cal t-shirt: Cal Student Store. Cargo shorts: hand-me-down Old Navy. Black nylon leggings: Rite Aid. Socks: gift. White canvas shoes: Payless.

Speaking of proportions, I should really get a long skirt a la yellow to try the silhouette out. I also don't actually have any high-waisted skirts. Or pants with legs wider than straight-leg. Or an actual waistless shift dress.

Mabye it's because I secretly fear them... especially the pants.

It's been a long time since I've had only one picture per outfit, but I just realized how similar these two looks are, so...

mike check

I was going to wear this to rehearsal:

Above, coat: delia's, gift. Skirt: secondhand, gift. Tights: H&M. Flats: Steve Madden via Ross.

And was debating wearing my costume shoes (thanks, Kim) so I wouldn't have to carry them:

Above, shoes: borrowed.

But it was way too warm and the heels made the skirt way too skanky, so I changed into this:

And some guy named Mike tried to walk me home.

Lesson of the day: Just wear pants.

H&M purchase from a couple weeks back:

It looks sort of fantastic, but when am I going to wear this?

(Do you do that? Buy things you're never going to wear? I'm especially guilty of this for dressy dresses and high heels. Seriously, I need to stop pretending I'm a socialite who gets invited by expensive people to charity events where we eat huge organic salads and tiny pieces of filet mignon and cheese platters and sip water harvested from virgin clouds or something. Although if I only shopped for the life I actually live, I'd have a closet full of sweat pants and t-shirts. I think I have now justified my purchase.)

berkel berkel

This is what I wore to watch Ching in Theatre Rice's Local Warming, which served as a reminder of why I harbor a burning, unrequited love for David Ives. ("Jeremy was lying in missionary position on my carpet. He'd had an affair with that carpet, so at first I thought they were copulating.")

Above, white v-neck tee: Hanes via Target. Cardigan: Uniqlo. Pink plaid skirt: Nordstrom Rack. Tights: Nordstrom. Flats: Steve Madden via Ross.

P. S. Thanks, Joce, for eating with me at Berkel Berkel, which I think is really good but yelp doesn't, and Liz and Jessie and Jeff and the really funny token white guy in the improv troupe for a good time.

be prepared

As my apartmentmate and her friend were making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and watching the Improv Everywhere video of pantsless people, it occurred to me - if I were ever to participate in Improv Everywhere's pantslessness, or if Berkeley had a pasty-skinned, tighty whitey version of UCLA's Undie Run, what would I wear?!

My underwear drawer needs life. But I told myself I wouldn't buy any more underwear this school year, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed and hope that I keep my pants on until the end of this year. In the meantime, I'll put these back on the shelf...
