Just an RP blog. I have no affiliation with Glee, Ryan Murphy & Co. or Chris Colfer.
Well, no not necessarily, but—like you said—you see what I mean. There’s nothing wrong with a little R&R, I just figure people have all different definitions for what that means to them. As long as you’re working it off, I suppose a bit of a binge here and there isn’t so bad; you seem to be in pretty good shape so it must be working for you. Not wanting to buy new clothes is definitely good motivation though. Ah, I see. I just have only ever had one dream so I think that’s why I can’t relate 100%, but it’s good that things seemed to fall into place for you. Many aren’t so lucky. You seem to have found a good amount of success at something you love to do, so that’s all that really matters. I can’t speak for your own voice or skills on the stage having never seen or heard them, but it is a rough business; there isn’t a role in every show for every person and it can be very hard to find that perfect part.
Yeah, that show’s on my list as well, as a matter of fact—I really need to get back to the city once my run with the show is done to catch some of the new ones. Well, thank you. I’m certainly not ashamed of it, but appreciate the compliment. I see. Well, I suppose that’s fair enough and I may not have room to talk since my so-called friends are the ones who twisted my arm into making this. It’s not that I don’t meet people or anything, I guess they just thought I need to…branch out more or some other ‘reason’. Honestly, I wasn’t really listening.
Yeah, I know that. Although I know there are plenty of roles the could adapt, no one is willing to take that risk anymore, which id fine. I get it. But that’s a big reason I went into fashion instead because I knew I wouldn’t have a problem fitting in and being successful there. But Broadway will always be a passion of mine, even if I’m not actively pursuing it. Seriously though, if I can’t get up there before the run ends I’m not above getting a bootleg somewhere just so I can see it in some fashion. Yeah, I don’t question him, I just do it, though at this point it;s proving to not be all that bad. Even if it is a little weird.
Do you get to bring anything hone? Nice to meet you Kurt. Oh, I’m a graduate student at Brown University but I also am a part time barista at Starbucks until I get a teaching job.
I mean, I can but I usually don’t. I donate a lot of the extra stuff because there’s no reason the less fortunate shouldn’t be able to dress fabulous either. Oh, that’s awesome! What kind of education are you wanting to go into?
Yes, it will make me happy. Thanks for agreeing! Alright, alright. That would be amazing, yeah! I’d love to see the view from your house. Yup. Not fun at all. But very necessary. I managed to get most of my assignments done, though, so that’s one less thing to worry about when I come home. I’m staying at the Metropolitan by COMO, it’s right on the oceanfront. That would be amazing! I was planning on calling a taxi, but if you’re free to give me a ride that would save me some money, and I’d be super grateful.
Well, occasionally I let my stubbornness go by the wayside, lucky you. By the way, sorry I had to run out on you after I dropped you off at the hotel. My boss called and apparently someone not being able to measure themselves for a suit qualifies as an emergency now, who knew? Sometimes I question why I work for a bunch of crazies. Anyways, how’s Miami treating you? Been anywhere besides the beach yet?
I suppose it just cuts both ways—even those of us who love to keep busy and work still need a little bit of a break every now and again. Though, I rarely just sit around even when I do have time off; I just don’t think I’m wired to be much of a couch potato. Oh. No, eating an entire cheesecake—while it might be equally disgusting and a little impressive—is not something anyone’s body needs. Ah, interesting. That’s certainly an impressive career, I’ll have to thumb through the next issue more carefully and look out for your column. A full ride is a tricky thing to say ‘no’ too, I can understand that; I just personally couldn’t think of a single thing that would pull me away from my dream. Then again, I’ve been working towards one career almost my entire life. That’s something I do miss about New York though—getting to go to shows on a semi-regular basis. It was especially great since I usually knew people in them so I could get good tickets or come back afterwards. There’s a good theater scene out here and, obviously I’m in a show right now so it’s not so bad. Is it? It’s one of mine as well. I’m playing the part of the Wolf—not the biggest role in the show but still plenty of potential to be a scene-stealer which is something I like to think I do very well. Yikes, I don’t know what I’d do if one of my parents thought I needed to meet people so badly that they ended up making me an online dating profile.
I don’t think sitting still makes you a couch potato, but I do see what you mean. And I’m aware how bad it is, but unfortunately sometimes you just need cake. But I’m sure to work it all off pretty fast because I can’t afford to buy anymore clothes for something that preventable. It was my dream, but so was fashion. And then I scored an internship turned job at Vogue and everything just kind of fell into place. Really, it probably worked out for the better since most productions have no roles or even ideas for what to do with someone with my weird range, but such is life. That’s awesome though. I really want to go see If/Then so I’m hoping I get to go up there soon so I can finally see it. Idina is the queen, after all. That’s a good role for sure. I wouldn’t be ashamed of that role in the slightest, not that you are. Well, I made the profile but my dad insisted I stop working so hard and try not to end up alone for my entire life, so here I am.
Still. I’m buying you dinner. I’m sure the novelty only last so long. I’m sure I’ll be able to soak it up whilst I’m there, but I certainly wouldn’t want to live around that kind of arrogant perpetually-shirtless surfer-dude. Wow, you live on the beach front? That must be gorgeous. And have some gorgeous sights ;) Yeah, packing, and just… Y’know. The usual. Working - I have to work twice as much this week to make up for the days off I’ll be having - grocery shopping, finally doing my summer assignments… Y’know, all that jazz.
Fine, if it’ll make you happy then I guess there’s no harm in that. But I get to return the favor before you leave. I do live beach front and all the views are very nice, you’re right. Maybe I’ll be nice and share the view and make us drinks or something, but only if you want to. Oh, yeah, all that not so fun but necessary stuff. But hey on the upside there’s only two more days left. Where are you staying? And do you need a ride from the airport or are you just renting yourself a car?
I guess… Maybe I will go. I haven’t really decided yet. I’m sure! It’d be fun. I don’t know anyone in the Miami area, so having a familiar face to show me around would be nice. I insist. We’ll go to your favorite place and I’ll buy you dinner. It’s the least I can do for wasting your time and making you take me places I’m sure you’ve been a thousand times.
You aren’t bugging me and I approached you, so your arguments are invalid. But really it’ll be fine, great even. The change of pace from overly arrogant muscle heads that think they look good will be refreshing honestly. The appeal of seeing all the quote on quote hot guys on the beach loses it’s appeal when they actually come and try to talk to you, trust me. Not that I’m saying I don’t still people watch from my porch. Living beach front does definitely have it’s perks, after all. I’m rambling. What have you been up to other than packing, I’m assuming?
Well I mean, most people go with their friends, or significant others, or kids so if I went alone I might look like a slight pedophile. What? No, I’d love that! I’d love a guide. Pretty please? I’ll buy you dinner if you show me around…?
No, you wouldn’t look like that at all. It’s Disney world, not a carnival. Oh…um, are you sure? I don’t want to overstep or intrude or anything. And you don’t have to buy me dinner, if anything I should buy yours since you’re the one traveling here.
Being in a show is a bit of a demanding job so I knew what I was signing up for when I chose to pursue theater; I’d probably go absolutely insane if I had too much time off anyway. That sounds pretty nice, I’ve always enjoyed traveling and those are certainly fun places to visit. Vogue? Well, that’s pretty impressive—do you write a column for the magazine or? I am, as a matter of fact. I’m currently playing in a run of Into the Woods through September here in San Francisco. Why’d you give it up? I suppose I just can’t imagine doing anything else—I’ve been singing and dancing since I was small, it’s just what I know. Oh, so you’re the one I heard about whose dad made him the profile.
That’s true, though I’d probably go crazy if I didn’t get a break once in a while. Either that or I’d eat and entire cheesecake, and no one needs that. I’m a field rep for big events and fashion events part time, but I do write for the magazine pretty much every issue. Sometimes they don’t need anything from me, so that’s when I get my breaks I suppose. I gave it up mostly because I got a full ride to Columbia and that’s an offer that would be extremely hard to turn down. However, I do still go to shows in New York and I’m always keeping up with the industry like my inner theatre nerd always has. Oh, that’s one of my favorite shows! Who are you playing? That would be me, yes.
You work at Vogue? That’s pretty cool! Anyways, I’m Tina.
I do! It’s pretty awesome, I’ll admit. It’s nice to meet you, Tina! I’m Kurt. So what do you do?
