"Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining."- note to self (via acidicmoons)
Things I will forever be upset about:
1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me
3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised
4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be
5. I don’t know for sure what house I would be in
6. I don’t know the specifications of my wand are.
7. I’M NOT A WITCH

"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.- Stephen Hawking (via elinaynature)
It matters that you don’t just give up."
me: instantly jumps to worst possible conclusion
As a stage manager, I feel like the highest compliment you can give me is your trust.
Directors trust that I’m writing it all down, facilitating communication, coordinating the group and that once the show opens, that I will keep the show running as intended
Designers trust that I will keep them involved with the goings-on in rehearsal, that their artistic visions is upheld with every performance.
ASMs trust that I am delegating fairly, not going to overwhelm them with work, micromanage them or throw them under the bus.
Actors trust that I am advocating for their safety when they cannot, that I am preparing or overseeing the preparation of the rehearsal hall, dressing room, and stage so that they do not have to pull focus from their work to worry about a prop being tracked or a broken refrigerator in the green room.
Crew personnel and technicians trust that the paperwork and information I give them is accurate and correct, and that they will not be unfairly blamed for mistakes that are not their fault based on decisions and actions made from my paperwork.
I trust all of these different groups as well, and they all trust each other.
Trust makes good theatre happen.
