Dorianne spent the years after Stoneybrook in NYC, training in acting in AMDA. She graduated alongside her Paul, her boyfriend since high school, now fiance. The wedding had to be put off several times as both got cast in off-Broadway plays. They wound up having a quick wedding on a night they both had off, knowing that as they built their resumes, they would only be more and more busy. Their commitment to their work was rivaled only by their commitment and love for each other. Dorianne still dreams of playing more classical roles, but is content where she is. She and Paul have been able to settle down some, moving to a quieter town in their home state. When she isn't working on shows, Dorianne volunteers at a local community theatre.

If I weren't taking care of pre-college things with Paul, I don't know what I'd do. Living in Manhattan may be rather daunting... but as I won't be alone, I don't expect any major problems.

While we were in the city this past weekend, we went to see The Phantom of the Opera. Absolutely marvelous. I cannot get over the fact that we'll be living so close to all these wonderful places...

Sometimes I find myself expecting to wake up. I do wake up, but on the very next day, and only to realize once again that this is no dream.

The play was a complete success! For five days, that was all that was going on. It was surreal, enchanting. After the final performance on Sunday the cast went out to celebrate. Paul insisted I stay in Stamford with someone, as it was an ungodly hour to drive at, so I ended up staying with him. I would assume the implications are sufficient and I need not go into detail.

I haven't much to say in what concerns the past week. We've been visiting family and the like, but all in all it's been rather dull. I must do something about that, but I've been... tired, I suppose, since finishing up with Twelfth Night.

I'm beginning to become nervous about the play. I can't seem to help it. Everyone has been very supportive, though, especially Paul. He's such a wonderful person. I'm glad we're together.

Less than seven days!!

My Thursday afternoons have now been set aside for helping Corrie Addison work on her acting skills. (She's such a sweet girl. I'm so excited about this!) Then, at four thirty, I go on my way to Stamford. The costumes should be done this week, actually, so we can finally begin dress rehearsal. I can't believe we'll start performing soon!

Paul and I are going to try and find a place to live together in NYC. Thinking ahead never hurt anyone, except perhaps Viola, but it worked out for her in the end. Oh, and of course it hurt Juliet... although that wasn't her fault.

Well. We'll be living together, most likely.

I'd best start getting ready for rehearsal. I have a feeling there will be more traffic than usual today.

This is it, this is the end of a lifelong journey, the fulfillment of dreams and, perhaps for some, nightmares. Expectations will be met and exceeded, and we will all be able to look back on thirteen years of our lives and cherish what was good.

It makes me sentimental just writing about it.

I have my regrets about this year. While I don't want to take back any of the time I spent acting, I would have liked to spend more time with my friends here, in Stoneybrook, and maybe get to know some of the people I only know by face. But, well, things can't always go the way one wishes. I think that's life's way of challenging us to go beyond what's in front of us, within our reach.

And we have the summer, so who's to say I won't be making new friends and getting together with old ones before I leave?

I'm excited about AMDA. Paul is going, too, so we'll be able to stay together. I hope our relationship lasts. I enjoy being with him very much. I wonder if... I shouldn't think about that now, what with all that there is to be thought about. Time will tell!

I look forward to a very active summer, both here and in Stamford.

Twelfth Night has been an interesting experience, and one of the most entertaining by far. The play itself, as a comedy, gives room for much amusement, but oh, seeing Madeline's Olivia slowly fall in love with my Viola-Cesario is too fun! Fortunately, Bradley looks a bit like me, so the twin situation is at least somewhat plausible.

I can't believe I'm almost graduating. I've been looking forward to attending AMDA since I was accepted, but, well, Stoneybrook is home. Even if I don't always like it. I'm going to miss everyone terribly!

I've got to buy some carnations for the hall table. Pink ones. Mother doesn't like those much, but I'm sure if she sees them she'll be convinced.
