Great experience, Great time.
After 100 days of slogging our life out doing props, practicing for calefare scenes, playing around and angst-ing about, it's finally over.
It feels weird to see the amphi so clean and spacious, without all the platforms blocking the way. I can still feel the blisters and callouses that formed on my palms, a memory of the hard work and pain we had carrying the platforms and ramps. The bruises on my arms and legs are like a reminder of the many times I knocked into the props, or when the props knocked into me. All the weird bug bites from the wood in the amphi still itches and I wonder if I'll ever get these bites again. I miss the finger/ hand-painting that we did for the daozhang's gifts, just because we couldn't find paint brushes. All the weird accents we adopted just for the fun for annoying people that couldn't stand it. Having breakfast together before going to UCC, shushing people in the waiting room, eating like crazy, writing spam mails and stuffing them into daoju box in the green room, bumping into Kairou while walking the passages and making friends with all the other huangcheng people. The feeling of excitement when we hear the house curtains opening, getting high watching the video before the start of the show, presetting and dancing like a rave during xu mu, acting like retards running across the ramps and the platforms while shouting "Zhe Kai!!!". Stage left: Getting shushed by Ruijie, Kokleong, KangChuen and Zhihao backstage, playing Fuzzy Wuzzy with Minyu, Kim, Wabo, Xinying, Aaron and all the others. Poking Ziyao, getting niao-ed by Chengjun and mimicing lines with Dingyi and Tingyi. Seeing seniors standing up and singing Chang Yi Shou Hua Chu De Ge with us during xie mu (that really brought tears to my eyes).Staying overnight in school after gongyan and destroying the props. There are just too many things to name.
All these will stay in my mind and heart forever.
Huangcheng made me lagged in my studies; I'm behind schedules like crazy and I feel so detached from the world sometimes. But it gave me opportunities to meet great people, learn skills I might never ever try, test my endurance and understand what it means by sweat and tears. Staying in school until late at night and returning home to sleep immediately, I will miss that feeling, for sure.
我爱黄城， 黄城 爱我。
