This is less hindsight than it is perspective.
Seeing movies with Isaac while he’s drunk is kind of the best.
I do not look like Isaac’s new boyfriend.
The worries about rankings and privacy are just one of the many reasons I wouldn’t suggest doing this sort of project to just anyone.
About a year ago, I saw Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog at Funhouse Lounge. The man playing Dr. Horrible was good. He was really good. So good that I went from repeating my usual “I could do it better” in my head to having to admit that he was capable of things I wasn’t.
My date told me that he was exactly the kind of friend I needed to make in the Portland theater community. I laughed.
Tonight, I got to see him perform this role again and as close as we have become since then, I saw his character and not him on that (beautifully tiny) stage.
I consider this our friend anniversary until I take the time to find the exact date, Isaac. I love you, dude.
I don’t always go to dinner with strange men who pick me up on my way home from the grocery store, but when I do …
As soon as I felt that anxiety telling me I shouldn’t go that I definitely had to, but it still felt like riding up the hill to the Saint John’s Bridge just to get out of my apartment.
I still can’t draw Isaac to save my life.
If you think I never shut up about this stuff online, you should talk to me in person.
Hustling and making connections is always going to be the hardest part of theater for me. Anxiety doesn’t make it any easier.
