It's so cool to see the way Lucas and I improve over time. I like seeing how the tension of the scene heightens with every practice. We practiced the scene yesterday, and we both gained a better understanding of the subconscious thoughts we have with every line. Prof. Lingafelter gave us thoughts to keep in the back of our mind so that each line is like a "punch" to the other person. This method really helped a lot with becoming grounded in the scene, and that in turn helps Lucas because it is then easier for him to respond to me with grounded emotions!

One thing we struggle with is understanding our emotions in the scene. I think I need to constantly physically picture someone I personally know through that hospital door. I need to think of a time in which I defended someone close to me for this to work. Also -- I sometimes compare my scene with other people's scenes and start to become insecure that I'm not good. But I throw these thoughts in the garbage can because we are making progress and our scene is going to be great!

Since this is our last blog post, I want to say thank you to everyone for putting in so much effort and making this class fun.
