My Dream in the Year of Tiger

This year, I will run for money. Specifically, this Saturday I will run for
RM8, 8888 (no seriously, you'll be chequed as such), I can't wait to count my ringgits away if I win it. Want to run for some ka-ching as well? Click here for more details.

Here goes;

I aspire to make theater as my sideline. I don't know how I'll do it, but I'm hoping through knocking the right doors, this dream will become more realistic each day.

I don't aim to be Shakespeare overnight. Yes, I know it takes more than good grammar and good attitude for this. Some manipulative literary skills are (for some reason) sure winner. Something about not being able to read the obviousness of the plays intrigues/excites people.

It seems like the weirder the play is, the greater the response. Think Phantom of the Opera.

I am going to work my way around theater and be involved in theatrical writing in whichever way possible. Like, writing a sentence or two perhaps? Shove it to some emails and hopefully I get to see a couple of plays by the end of this year. Take notes, and maybe learn a thing or two. Least two - what to write (worldly issues and cheating hearts are favourites) and how to write them in a way both the mass audience and unique others will appreciate it. Serious business.

It's going to be so an artsy fartsy experience I might just get myself a beret and play dress-up while I'm at it. I know it's nothing extremely ambitious like bungee jumping or migrating somewhere else, but you see, I'm hoping.

I knew finding those weird looking masks fascinating when I was kid was a sign. $$$ sign damn right.


Oh well, let's see what the year of the Tiger will bring for me.

Love & peace,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.
