AN INTRODUCTION TO 'A WEEK IN THE LIFE'

Friday, 27 March 2015



IF you've been following me on Twitter or Instagram you have probably seen a couple of my posts using the tag '#dlsweekinthelife' numerous times over the past few months. The hashtag is part of the efforts towards the promotional campaign for 'A Week In The Life' - a weeklong course I'm about to experience in a few days. This event is organised by DLS Productions, a musical theatre company I'm a part of. This event is in its second edition and will take around 40 students and myself to Margaret Howard Theatre College in London for a week of musical theatre training. I shall be introducing this wonderful campaign including an insight to the star studded tutor lists, preparatory work and an idea in general of what we'll be doing. If you're a Musical Theatre fanatic especially, I urge you to read on.

WHAT'S A GUILTY PLEASURE?

THE other day I was asked about my guilty pleasures. I stopped to think for a few minutes and then I came up with a small list ranging from TV shows and songs to food and habits. I've actually been thinking about this subject for a while now and inspired by some YouTube vlogs I've come across discussing this topic, I too have decided to jump on board and write about Guilty Pleasures. Lately this topic has been touched upon in televised media such as the dedicated episode of Glee. Watching this episode and seeing them perform some of my own guilty pleasures made me question whether a number of these pleasures are common amongst many. Has the concept gone mainstream with all this media exposure? If it has, would it still count as a guilty pleasure? Even more so, how can one feel guilty about something that they like?
