As of this moment at midnight on the 14th of august, 2013, I will be leaving for London in 1 day. I have created this blog so you all can follow me and my adventures every day for as long as i retain your interest! But I also should add that I am writing these words down as they come into my brain, and I am not going back over them to check for any of what i consider arbitrary spellchecks or grammar checks (although my mom would disagree about the importance of these things.) This is a place to just spew at you as much information on my trip as I can, and if that means that sometimes youre going to have to decipher what seems to be almost shorthand, i am very sorry. haha
For those of you who do not know where I am going or what I am doing, here is a brief explanation and a schedule of important dates on my trip in the U.K.:
I will be both looking at colleges and taking a course at a university for the duration of my stay. The colleges I hope to look at are:
RADA (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts)
The London School of Film, Media, and Performance (Through Regents college London)
LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)
LIPA (The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts)
The Central School of Speech and Drama at the University of London
Second, I will taking the ¨Acting: For Camera¨ course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland! I am so excited to be a part of my first university intensive, and being 17, i will the youngest in the course! Being able to learn from graduates and teachers from the school, I hope to come back with so much knowledge about my craft, and I am both open and ready for it.
If any of you do want to keep up on what I´m doing without having to check up every day, you can check up on important dates in my itinerary!
