Week 7 - My Master Life Plan
Week 7 - My Master Life Plan
Posted on July 14, 2017 by Kelsey Ervi

Hey followers,

I embarked on this adventure as an Intern with hopes that I would get by with minimal abrasions and leave WaterTower without being on someone’s s**t list*. After seven weeks, I think I’m doing a pretty okay job because Joanie said, “I’ll miss you!” to me when I left for Austin for the weekend. I think we might be best friends? More on that later.

One of the good things about my internship is that it has morphed into a new escapade. Since Joanie returned from the TCG Conference to lead WaterTower’s artistic mission, there have been opportunities for me to branch out and experience other areas of the organization. I looked into hanging lights with our Master Electrician, but I get crazy vertigo when I’m in high places. I thought about helping the production department with scenic build, but I can’t do a push up (yet) so the heavy lifting would be problematic. And as we learned a few weeks ago, my week-long experience in leading an artistic staff didn’t pan out, so I had to take my talents elsewhere. This being said, I’m thrilled to share the news that this week I accepted a position at WaterTower as a Front of House Associate!

I’m super excited because I’m two months out of college and my master life plan has been going pretty well:

Step One: Apply for internship
Step Two: Woo Kelsey with my phone interviewing skills #Diction #CrackJokes
Step Three: Accept internship, move to Dallas, and get a toll tag
Step Four: Be nice and tell people you like their shoes
Step Five: Hope internship can turn into real job
Step Six: Apply for real job within the Company
Step Seven: Woo Kyle and Kayla in interview for said job #EyeContact #CrackJokes #ReciteAlphabetBackwards
Step Eight: Accept real job, befriend the ticketing software, and begin scheming next life move

We’re nearing the end of week two of Hit the Wall and there’s some good stuff cookin’ in the rehearsal room. This week, we’ve been doing group movement exercises because (spoiler) there is a club dance scene in the play. We’ve also been learning some fight choreography because (spoiler) there is a riot in the play. Joanie is a very talented director and I feel like I’m becoming a talented assistant director by osmosis.

Also! I’m not the only blogger in town, there’s a new weekly vlog that my friend (and Hit the Wall cast member) Joshua Gonzales is doing called “Running Riot” which will come out every Wednesday for the next seven weeks. Thanks to our friends at Broadway World for partnering with us! You should watch the vlog and then in the comments encourage Kelsey to let me make my blog a musical vlog. Because musicals are the #future.

This has been a good week for Tiff the Intern and also a good week for Tiff the Box Office Girl. I’m excited to work here for longer than the summer because the people are cool and the art is #life.

Thank you for reading this blog.
