My name is Tara. I am a freelance opera director. I sometimes think I may be the laziest person on the planet, but surely that can't be so, right?
I am in that difficult time when I have about 1 million things I COULD be doing, probably SHOULD be doing, but there are not any imminent deadlines. The show I am working on is mostly prepped, and we are in rehearsals. There is plenty of time for said rehearsals (barring something insane) so I am not really stressed about it. The show that IS a bit of a stressor does not go into rehearsals until mid-September, so I have plenty of time to freak out about that one (which I do, continually). I have done the bulk of my homework for that one too... now I just want to get in a room with the singers and see what we can make work!
Then I have 2 major shows later in the season. I have picked at those a bit but don't feel too pressured. So... here I am. In that strange no man's land, waiting on inspiration. Getting the procrastination part of the process over with.
This is what I have done today INSTEAD of working on opera:
- Went to Home Depot at 8am to exchange some mini-blinds. Again. This will be my 3rd set in as many days.
- Did a load of laundry.
- Hung mini-blinds.
- Put away tools.
- Watered the crepe myrtle tree I decided to plant just before Houston's sweeping drought.
- Checked all my bank accounts.
- Washed dishes.
- Made some inquiries about a sublet in nyc for my boyfriend.
