the technique class is heating up with more emotion as we add in activities. we're getting to the point where we have to get more in touch with our true feelings, not just the unguarded reactions we use to deal with things everyday. we see that we use sarcasm, laughter, dismissive responses to avoid conflict and how we really feel about things. another thing is that we have been taking the exercise for granted in that we know it's an acting exercise and act accordingly, instead of treating every new moment uniquely.
it's pretty hard for me to stop being self conscious and just respond to my partner; i hope i'm able to find my true response to it soon enough.
