Prompt Side Story

I'm Jill, a 23 year-old stage manager tackling the city that never sleeps, but I left my heart in Italy. Currently pursuing my MFA in Stage Management.

I am a/an: theatre nerd, feminist, Potterhead, Whovian, Gleek, Gemini, student, Tribute, writer, Slytherin, and dreamer.

I love coffee, Emma Watson, Jesus, chinchillas, Pitch Perfect, quirky office supplies, Percy Weasley, good books, meaningful art, thrift stores, musicals, Clémence Poésy, cover songs, The Big Bang Theory, Chris Rankin, Fleur Delacour, opera, puppies, late nights with good friends, Criminal Minds, Naya Rivera, PostSecret, equality, Grey's Anatomy, Neil Patrick Harris, the smell of new books, Karen Gillian, campfires, Disney, ink-stained fingers, Marcus Flint, Rebel Wilson, Skins, Princess Tiana, mixed drinks, Oliver Wood, Once Upon A Time, the smell of old books, How I Met Your Mother, and intelligent people.

I believe that anything can be accomplished through hard work, that true love does exist, that God don't make no trash, that it's better to do the right thing and be hated than to sit idly by, and that caffeine is a miracle drug.

No, it’s not theatre if there’s no audience. It’s therapy!

Bored onboard means selfies.

The hoarder in me hurts. I just recycled ten years worth of stage manager books that I’d been filing.

Hi there! So I am a current junior in college and am looking at grad schools for stage management and was wondering if I could ask for your advice on a few things? Such as: did you go right from undergrad to grad? How much professional experience did you having going into grad school? And other things like that. I only found your tumblr because I am really interested in Columbia's program. Let me know! Thanks!

So, I went to Grad school straight out of undergrad. I had a handful of professional experience under my belt and a LOT of educational. However, there are people in my program who had only done three shows prior to starting at CU. 

It’s about presentation and WHY you want to go to graduate school. 

Columbia is great because of its location and who the professors are. 
However, I was also a huge fan of CCM. 

I hope I helped. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

My darling, you are allowed to fail without being a failure. You are allowed to make mistakes without becoming one. More opportunities will present themselves, you will find hope again.
