Introduction

I will always remember going to the RSAMD (Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) 2004 summer school. Although I had been to summer school each time it is a new experience. It almost gives you the feeling you get when you are going up the 1st slope on a roller coaster, your looking forward to it but you are also scared, that's the only way to describe how summer school feels. It ran from the 12th of July to the 16th of July 2004, and it was from 10 am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. During the day we got a morning break at 11am and it lasted 15 minutes, we also had an afternoon break at 3.30pm and it also lasted 15 minutes. We also got an hour at lunch (from 1pm - 2pm) where we could either go into town and buy our lunch as long as we had brought in our permission slips to say that we were aloud to go out for lunch. Sadly I had forgotten my slip the first day so I had to ask people to go and get me some lunch and bring it back to me, but luckily almost everyone at summer school is very nice and only to happy to help. ...read more.

Finally as the recording was ending it said that I was to sit on the Chair of Understanding in The Visionary Council. This was all so new to me, but I went along with it, it was fun. We spent most of the first day getting to know each other and what our final performance would be. The theme for this summer school was the Olympics. At break I would go and find people that I had already known and through them I would meet new people and through them I would meet even more people so it wasn't long until almost everyone, even the people that were in different groups, all knew each other. We would normally just sit in the small booths that line the junior academy hall, and we would talk and mess around, there would be the occasional people chasing each other but it was all for a laugh. At the end of breaks the mentors would have to normally come and chase us back to class for we either forgot about the time or we were just being lazy. At lunch, apart from the first day, a few of us would go to Burger King or Greggs the bakers or McDonalds or similar places and we would then either sit in and eat or ...read more.

Conclusion

I was so nervous but I shouldn't have been, we were great. We had a huge round of applause and I was so happy and so proud of myself, we all were. After the shows we all got to just sit about and muck around. Near the end of the day we all got handed a balloonthat was the same colour as our group and we all went out on to the steps at the main entrance of the RSAMD. "Don't stop me now" by the group 'Queen' was playing full blast and many people came to see what was going on. I was in such a good mood for I just had 1 of the best weeks of my life, but I was so sad and scared that I wouldn't see any of the people that had became my best friends ever again, but I was proved wrong, I still see them almost every weekend. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my week of summer school and I found it a great and rewarding experience and I also made many great new friends and I do not regret it one bit. It also taught me that I can be a confident and smart person when I want to and its fun doing things that people wouldn't normally do. ...read more.
