That's that.

We've finished all our performances. It's been the most amazing week in ages, and I've been in like 7 newspaper articles. Because I'm cool like that. Here's a pic from one of them:

From the left: Me, Sofie, two other chicks I can't remember the names of.

Other than that, my feet are falling apart. Not sure why. And we've had the nicest weather in ages this week. Which just made everything more perfect. I wish I had a bunch of pictures of the place. Oh wait lol I do.

This is the outside the building. The red thing you see straight ahead is a cafe. That gray thing over the building itself is also the building. It's a big building. "Grieghallen". This huge space here is where we hung out. Just chillin' in the sun. Watching skaters skating. Having coffee and cigarettes. It was seriously awesome. Here's the inside:

Or, that would be the audience. Room for about 2000 people, if I'm not mistaken. The acoustics were great.

Pedals and shit. Don't ask me why that guy is lying on the stage curled up in a fetal position because I really just don't know.

Behind the stage. Note: Not the backstage. Picture of our backstage is coming up.

The guitars and basses that were used in our performance. The black one furthest back in the triple Hercules stand is mine. His name is Oliver. You see him, right? No? K.

Backstage for musicians only. This is actually not an actual backstage, but a performance room. But we got to use it for chilling out and warming up and stuff like that. Oh, and there were also 7 dressing- and makeup-rooms. Luxury much?

Now that we're done with everything, I feel really empty, you know? I'm probably never going back to Grieghallen. I'm never performing this musical again. I'll never be acting high and doing some lame moves while singing "Aquarius" like our choreographist told us to.
(While we're talking about her, I'm not very convinced she's completely mentally healthy)

But heck, I mean, I did this last year as well. I felt the same way, and I survived it. It passed a couple of weeks later. I almost feel bad about not still feeling empty about that, but oh well.

On another note, after having this experience, I know I really do want to work with music. I love being on stage performing in front of a bunch of random people, and I don't even know why, because it does sound utterly ridiculous. I've completely lost my stage fright. I think that's the very best thing I got out of this.

I'm going to go sleep now. I've been working non-stop from about 10am - 10pm every day, including weekends, for 10 days. I skipped school today. /sohardcore.
I don't really want to go back to school at all now. Just really proves that it's over. Going back to my normal, boring day-to-day life. Oh well. I guess it's the way it's gotta be. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. You wouldn't believe how much you bond with the other people involved, even if you don't talk to them much.

I'm gonna go watch some House now. Later. :)))))

That sounds pretty AMAZING I wish there was something like that here (so I'm going to kill you from jealousy) ps: I'm being serious.
