Sitting in Convo

For the sitting exercise that we given at the end of class i decided to sit in Convo and see how people acted with one another. The thing is i noticed that most of the people in Convo were not looking at each other when talking. There eyes were on the new TVs Around them. When they did look down from the TV it was usually to look at there phone. In the five minutes i sat there i also watched the people coming into Convo, in that time i saw 20 or more people come in talking or texting on there phones. These are just examples that the human race is becoming more dependant on technology. As more convenient and help full as technology is, it is numbing our communication skills and lowering our social skills.

First day of class

This class is by far the only class that is doing something that I wasn't expecting. I expected us to come in, get a script, start reading it and being told what we were doing wrong. I wasn't expecting to do games and start with the fundamentals of acting.

Tuesday's class really helped me loosen up also and made me ready for the rest of the day. I think I may need some coffee though to get me ready for this class. I'm really looking forward to what the rest of the semester will bring.
