Exams, Monologues, and Literature, oh my!

Part 1: Exams

Yup, it's that time of the year again. Exam season. And you know what? This time the grades that I get actually count for something. As in, if I do well in these exams, I've got a place at one of the UK's top universities. If I don't, then I'm screwed. So yeah, pressure. Here's to hoping I can get that AAB!

Part 2: Monologues

My audition monologues may not have gotten me into drama school, but I don't want all that hard work to go to waste. Following exam season, I shall upload renditions of my four favourite monologues: Hippolita from 'Tis Pity She's a Whore; Titania from Midsummer Night's Dream; Rosalind from As You Like It; and Queen Margaret from...well, pretty much all of Shakespeare's histories, but more specifically Henry VI Part III

...Remind me why Juliet is the Classical monologue that everyone knows and jumps at?

Part 3: Literature.

I'm considering starting up a series of posts, yet again, after exam season, discussing my responses and interpretations of different plays, poems, and novels, everything from Young Adult to Gothic Horror. These interpretations and 'essays', if you will, will be open for any students, such as myself, to use as sources and critics for coursework. I'll mainly be doing this to improve my essay writing skills between 6th Form and Uni, but I understand how hard it can be to find literary critics with alternative or otherwise out there interpretations of texts.

And now this is in a blog post, I guess I have to commit. Permission granted to e-slap me if I don't pop up again around August time

P.S- My Blogger commenting is really glitchy, as in, I can't respond to comments. Sorry guys :(

  2. Hi Alice,

    How can I contact you? I do public relations for Mike & Ike candy and I was wondering if I could ask you to share contest information with your readers?
