The Difference Between Drama School and Any Other School, Anywhere

We are in the thick of graduation season here, hence the long absence. I assure you, blogicide is not about to occur.

Conversation overheard today between two students getting out of the elevator, after the casting for end-of-year plays was posted:

Drama Girl 1: *sniff. sniffle.* (wipes raccoon eyes)
Drama Girl 2: Listen. You should absolutely be upset. Go talk to [the Academic Director]. It is totally acceptable for you to be crying right now!

I think I’ll ask my friends in pursuit of their MBAs if crying is as encouraged at their schools.
