10 THINGS TO DO WHILE WAITING TO HEAR THE RESULTS OF AN AUDITION
- Watch Buffy on Netflix
Because Buffy. I don't think I should have to give more of a reason for this. It's Buffy. It's excellent.
2. Clean your messy messy room
There is a chance I have avoided doing this, citing having a cold as the sole reason. My room currently looks like an episode of Hoarders.
3. Text your boyfriend and plan your next holiday together in epic detail
SO EXCITED. Pass the suncream and the travel scrabble, we're off on some adventures....
4. Teach yourself to learn a new accent
I have tried and failed to learn New Orleans, Welsh and Arabic today
Universal wishlist yourself into a state of near frenzy, then weep when you realise your room is not made of bare brick and full of gorgeous mis-matching vintage furniture and that you can't be bothered to make yourself a vegan superfood bowl for dinner in perfect colours and will probably end up having an egg bagel.
6. Budget for the next million weddings you're going to
Answer? You can't afford any of them. Begin working out ways to make home-made gifts and try to work out if you can dye the last dress you wore so no one will recognise it. Try to work out ways to hitch-hike to the weddings and stay at the wedding venue for free, in a tree or something.
7. Plan everyone's Christmas presents
Because it's June, which in Irish Catholic family terms is December 10th. And that means making roughly 30 wonky but heartfelt Christmas gifts.
8. Try and count the number of people you know getting married or having babies
Give up and watch cartoons instead to calm down the realisation that no one is horrified by the youth of your friends who are getting married/having babies because THEY'RE NOT THAT YOUNG AND NEITHER ARE YOU. Hide under duvet.
9. Make career plans
Have to stop because you keep factoring in this job you're waiting to hear about and that is too dangerous
10. Check your email about a million times
Obviously not for the audition results. For other stuff. Like....uh....oh! A notification from Amazon that your new belt has shipped! That was it. Sure.
I'm a lost cause Reader....
