Tonight, I finally saw No Country for Old Men, which is one of the most brilliant, suspenseful, intense, and efficient movies I've ever seen. No word is uttered unnecessarily; no shot is unclear. The performances, writing, and directing are INSANE.
I recognized the woman who plays Llewelyn's wife, Carla Jean, right away as the actress who plays Peter Pan in one of the most magical and tear-jerking movies ever, Finding Neverland. She was fantastic as Carla Jean, so surprisingly strong.
Late last night, I was at the house of one of the actresses in the play I'm dialect coaching. I looked around, all of a sudden, and thought, "Who the hell are these people? What am I doing here? When did this happen?"
Two weeks ago, my life was pretty much 180-degrees different. I had to distract myself from totally dissolving into panic.
The thought occurred to me tonight too, also while at rehearsal.
The good news, aside from the sleep I'm getting and the DVRing I'm doing (which are both excellent additions to my life), is that UT Austin has officially confirmed my complete file. I can check back in as often as I want to see the status of my admission.
I started this blog 31,556,926 seconds ago. A year goes by real quick sometimes.
I was thinking of writing something commemorative to mark the occasion, but I think the monumental event of moving has eclipsed this moment in time.
