acting is hazardous to your health.

acting is hazardoud to your health.

well, at least to my health. i don't know what it is, but i seem to be an injury magnet in my acting class. first it was a swift kick in the shins, then i got slugged in the ribs, and today, someone elbowed me in the side of the head (all accidents, but still... give me a fucking break).

have you ever had an elbow slam into your head? it SUCKS. it hurt really fucking bad for about 4 hours, i had to hold an ice pack to my head for half the day, my brain all but stopped functioning, and i didn't even get to do any work in my damn acting class!! it was really fun when my head started swelling... it's not really noticeable, but i have a bump on the right side of my head that is so sore and sensitive that i can't even run my fingers through my hair without wincing (washing my hair tonight was really fun).

i was rather proud of myself, though.. wednesday is my busiest day (i'm on campus from 10am to 9pm with a few sporadic breaks), and even though all i could think about was popping about 10 advil and crawing into bed, i stuck it out... i went to all my classes and didn't ditch work.

i guess my issue is this... i stayed in school an extra quarter to take this class, and i keep having to sit out because ovezealous freshman keep fucking hitting me. i mean, you can get into what your doing, you can give 100% to the task at hand, but that doesn't mean you disregard your concern for the saftey of those around you. i mean, the first few times it wasn't that big of a deal, but i seem to be the only one that's getting injured in class and i don't know how i'm suppposed to work on my acting if i'm worried that i'm going to get slugged.

hm. i wonder if i'm going to be able to sleep on my side tonight? let's see......... OW. guess not. ;-(
