‘Weight of the World’ – Erasure


TODAY, Maggie wasn’t too talkative, and the day was awful.  I spent much of it with Jodie, Jonny and Will, being depressed and bored.



The KLCA programme is now out and we’re in that.  I’ve pretty much designed the posters and Maggie’s going to finish them for me.


I must admit I got pissed off today when Donna was swanning around saying she was the play’s producer!  We’re BOTH producing this bloody thing, but today she came out and said she’d done most of the work on the show, citing the scheduling, the KLCA meetings and contacting local radio.  OK, so she spoke to radio (though without any consultation with me as to what we might want to say to them), but I outlined the schedules and told her what I wanted in them and I was at all the KLCA meetings.  As far as I was aware, she was now Assistant Producer.  God!  THE CHINESE PLAY is my production if it’s anyone’s.  I’m also annoyed that there’s very little else going on in BTEC at the moment, so Larry wants to chuck some ‘floating’ people into the CHINESE PLAY team.  God!  I’ve a good mind to give Donna and Larry a piece of my mind; I feel like kicking off some serious hell!


Kat’s left the cast, thank god!  So has Sharon Fielding – and Darren Marsh might too.  The others are all happy to stay.  Kat’s role will be filled by Emma Goddard, because – once again – we are getting on well as friends.  Good, eh?



There also seems to be some kind of schism/division in the Performing Arts group again.  People seem to be falling into factions for some reason.  On one side, it seems to be: me, Jonny, Jodie and Will.  On the other, it seems to be: Sharon, Kat, new girl Marita, and Donna.  Those without a ‘side’ seem to be: Kenneth (who’s his own soul), Tracey, Jolene, and Daniel (who’s been a bit of a snotty git this week).


And while that seems to be happening, there are rumours that the Drama Department might be holding an awards ceremony + lunch at the end of term.  Hope so!  I think.
