The beginning of the end
This is the time of the year when you start to feel – well, that it’s getting over. Soon. Very soon. Things just wrappung up quietly around you.
This week, for me, was marked by two relatively big blows – thursday, and, well, tonight, with some continuity between them.
Thursday was my last Warwick Rev rehearsal (I dare not say ever) – as well as my last proper DMed show at the Student Cinema. The Science of Sleep was awesome by the way. But as I said, the beginning of the end.
It went on Friday, with my lovely Oxfam friends throwing me a surprise thank you party – I can’t believe, in retrospect, that I fell for the trick the manager used to keep me in the shop. As if he needed one. But it was really really nice and very much appreciated.
Saturday. Two of my housemates have now definitely left, and I’m home alone (but my third housemate is coming back tomorrow :-) ). I see lots of people from WiM again. [geek moment]And it is the first part of this year’s final episode of Doctor Who – which, for the first time since… Daleks in Manhattan (!) watch without John or pizza. Fortunately, Stu was there !

Sunday, aka today. What it all built up to. The Piazza concert! Now that was awesome, and we had lots of people turning up and enjoying themselves, despite the rain – and quite frankly we sounded great :-) and people laughed at the drama and (unexpectedly) at the dance. I have rarely had as much joy as during the encores of So Good and My Redeemer. But it was also the last I was seeing of lots of friends. So after the concert it was lots of hugs. So fellow Revvers, thank you for these two terms, that I have been able to enjoy so much with you. You will always have a special place in my heart.
And right now, I’m typing from the office of the Student Cinema, where the last L3 show of the year is being done – Full Monty is on at the moment – and the very last WSC show is going to be on tuesday (the outdoor screening of Ice Age).
So yeah, I am feeling quite emotional at the moment. But I’d rather have it this way than wishing it were over more quickly.
To all my friends – carry on doing what you’re doing, because you’re just the best!
