This week has been very crazy but very fun!
On Tuesday, I got to leave school early to head to my first-ever author event! I took part in a writer's panel at Maple Woods College, where I and five other authors read excerpts from our books, answered questions, and talked about writing to an audience. It was SO MUCH fun and all the other writers were super nice. Then, we had a booksigning (my first ever!) where I got to meet some new fans and friends. I absolutely LOVED it and cannot wait to do something like this again.

After the event, I headed straight to rehearsals for my Coterie show! I watched rehearsals for the play I wrote, "Letters to Romeo and Juliet." My actors are absolutely fabulous and I cannot wait to see the show on Sunday! After this, I had rehearsals for the play I am performing in, "Literary Armageddon." You can purchase tickets for Sunday, May 4th, at 7:00 at the Coterie's website.
Next, when I got home, I found out my Vistaprint order had arrived! I got a Swept to Sea T-shirt and Phone case.
Then, on Thursday, I attended my tech rehearsals for these plays. This day was a little crazy because it was also my final day of my Audition Lab classes, and it was the day I had to audition before the Coterie's artistic director. My audition went pretty well! I did my monologue, sang, and then performed my pantomime piece. I really enjoyed this!
After my Coterie activities were over, I changed into a dress and ran over to my school's award banquet. There, I received the Student of the Year Award!

It was very cool.
All in all, I have had an insanely busy week, but I wouldn't trade it for a thing in the world.
