So this is an acting class and I guess I've kinda had expirence so I'm going to write about that. First off let me say that this expierence I speak of is weak and limited. I did competitive speach in highschool if anyone here is firmiliar with the world of suits begals and stress on 6:30 am on saturdays during highschool you'll be in agreement that speech and debate teams don't really teach you how to act. Sure they claim to make you not shy infront of a group but that group is a bunch of people you'll never see. I guess thats why I've felt so scared in class so far. Sure I know a few people but getting graded for something I can't completely controll plainly scares me. I guess all there is to do is play by the one true role I learned on the speech team that applies to the real world and thats the first person who notices that you're embaressed is yourself.
So for my blog i sat and watched the girls club soccer game, and since i played in highschool all four years i love to watch soccer. Well anyways it started raining and this just brought back memories from my senior year when we played a team in a down pour. the touch of the rain on your skin and you run and the way it dripped off my semi long hair it all came rushing back to me. I loved the game and the girls team won and it was good, but the expereince was so real it just came back to me. It was like i was already back in the game makeing a run up the left side of the field for the flag to make a cross towards goal.
I really enjoyed that feeling exercise size as well. When our group did the spaghetti I really could feel it warmly slipping through my fingers. It seemed so real that it actually made me really hungry....good thing I ate lunch after the exercise..but for our assignment I sat while watching the Bengals football game and just listened to the crowd, they were going nuts. And I know how senses have such a strong tie to memories and while I heard that crowd it took me back to my very first Bengals game and just brought back all those emotions and smells....
