I haven't blogged in a couple days because I'm doing the play now! :D Our first performance was on Thursday and we did another one last night and we have two more today :) Then on Monday night we have our closing night one. :D On Thursday it was really fun and I was dancing backstage for about a half an hour straight because I was so chizzing freaking excited and it got everyone else excited too so there was a big group of random cast back stage doing the lawn mower, shopping cart, sprinkler and such. Then during my scene I was super scared and I couldn't breathe but when I went on I think I did okay :)
Last night sucked, it was good acting and an okay audience but there was LOADS of little mistakes. We'll do better today, I'm sure :D In like an hour I have to leave and get to the school because we have a 2:00 matinee today! :D I'm excited because a lot of my teachers and my sissy are coming today to the matinee so I'll do extra good to impress them all! :D Oooo, and last night I had no stage fright whatsoever and that's always been like my number one issue for performing. But after opening night I realized they're there to watch us and be entertained and amazed, not to make fun or judge, they want to see the talent we all have to give and they don't notice the mistakes as much as we think. I've been holding myself back my whole life because of stage fright but now I'm done. :) I know I might get it again once in a while but I know it will never be as bad as Thursday night, because I've finally discovered I can just let myself go now and silence a room with my energy. :) It feels really good.
I think it was Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday that it snowed. YEAH! It snowed!!!!!!!!! >:( I was angry, it's not even Halloween yet. We deserve at least another month of autumn. Or at least another two weeks, I mean, Thanksgiving needs to have beautiful multi-colored leaves on the ground, not obnoxious and stupid white snow. Now the weather is getting better (knock on wood) But I'm angry that it snowed in the first place :(
Hey!!!!!!!!!! Happy late birthday to Megan!!!! I hope you enjoyed all your presents and had an AMAZING day!! :)
I want to say that I love my school because last night it really felt good to have everyone complimenting my acting and walking around with Shakespeare caused tears :) It confirmed my dreams just a little bit more :P And I love my parents because they are the ones that handed this opportunity to me. :)
