NIDA and HARRY POTTER!!!!!!

The 11th-13th of July were the best three days of my life. (and has the font changed on this thing?)
I'll explain it day by day.

Monday (11th): My first day at NIDA. There were only 5 people in my course, including me. We were doing Writing Doctor Who. So, on the first day we just met the Tutor and each other then studied different genre's and actual Doctor Who scripts! We got to read through the scripts and be the characters which was REALLY fun. We also got to watch bits of different episodes. Plus we found out what we'd be doing for the next 2 days.

Tuesday (12th): We started to write our own 5min Doctor Who adventures! It was actually really difficult creating our own adventures, aliens, planets and trying to make sure the characters were in character. We also got to watch a few more bits of episodes.

Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning: My mum's friend picked me up from NIDA and I went back to her place for dinner and to get ready. She had made me the most EPIC cloak EVER!!!!!! We had a couple of hours to kill so we watched the first part of The Deathly Hallows. Then we got into our outfits (I wore a black shirt that had the Slytherin crest on it, my jeans, odd Converse, my awesome cloak, a homemade wand, a witches hat and neon purple hairspray) and headed into the city, we got to the cinema at 11:30pm and went to get our online tickets. It was INSANE!! There were people everywhere, like, hundreds of people dressed up, about 5 screens were showing HP. Almost everyone was dressed up (for all those fellow Starkids, there was even a Rumbleroar and a Ron Weasley witha blue headband!) and I was seeing it in 3D. Guess what? My 3D glasses were HP shaped! When we got into the theatre, before the movie started 2 random people started having a wizarding duel. It was epic!! By the time the movie had finished it was 3am!

Wednesday (13th): My last day at NIDA. I got to NIDA running on 4hrs sleep and some chocolate. That morning we met the actors who were in the other Doctor Who class, there were only 6 of them, they were going to act out our scripts for us. So we spent the rest of the morning finishing our scripts. Then at lunch we sat with the actors and we all ended up being really good friends. I also ended up having a coca-cola and some more chocolate to keep me awake. In the afternoon, we all went back with the actors and we were given the actors we needed (it was decided earlier that day) for about half an hour to work with and figure it out with. Then the actors performed our mini episodes that we had written and directed. It was an AMAZING 3 days and I made some brilliant friends :D I hope I'll get to see them again.

Sorry for not updating sooner. I hope you are all ok :)

    It's good to hear you had a blast! I could not help but smile when I read your post. Thank you for posting!
    I hope I will have time to chat with you sometime.
    I have not done much in teh way of writing fanfic. But I have written plenty of mediocer poems. It has been fun! I think Octa is so glad to not have so much pressure of being the only one writing poems that he actually likes my poetry. (or so he claims) :P
    I tried to write a poem for him. I think someone with more skill should hav done one long ago. After all, he is writing a poem for everyone else! :D
    Now I want to do some poems for the other people I live and care about.
    Well. I have to go now. Take care my friend! Hope to chat withyou again soon!
    *hugs*
