The first two days have been exhausting, exhilirating, and euphoric. For example, last night there was a scene where the Teachers are in the lounge for recess. It was the last setup of the night for me, and it involved setting up numerous lights. As I was setting up, the cast were doing a read through in the green room. Once I had lit the set, we blocked the scene and tryng to figure out where everyone goes was a bit hectic. **EXHAUSTING** We rehearsed then shot the scene. **EXHILIRATING** After the final take, the cast spontaneuosly broke intothe song, "A doe, a deer, a female deer....." Everyone danced, laughed, and frolicked!!! **EUPHORIA!** More to come from inside THE TEACHER'S LOUNGE! I LOVE MY LIFE!!! love, me, J.D.
