Talk about mixed feelings! So stressful yet SO exciting! You have an opportunity to show a director everything you have to give. You get to pick your favorite material and have an excuse to show off! Once you leave you think, “That show would be fun to be in, but I would be okay if I don’t get the part.” Then you get a call back and go through that process. You’re given a cold-read to make whatever interpretation out of it that you please. You’re feeling awesome and the new thought is, “I HAVE to get that part!” Then the waiting period between then and when the cast list is put up! AGONY!… Well now that I have ranted about my night, have a happy week everyone! :]
I have discovered today that I have spent far too long away from home and I am extremely home sick. Do you ever have one of those days where you can’t stop thinking about spending time with your family? That’s all I’ve been able to think about today so I figured, why not blog about it right? I’m a Musical Theatre major here at WWCC and right now we’re working on opening a play this coming weekend. With all the rehearsals and everything there has been no time to go home for a weekend. Sometimes you just need your mom right? I am in one of those times, but no worries! She’s coming to see me next weekend! :] The point is, it’s okay to feel homesick, nothing to be ashamed about.
All through my Jr. High and High School years, all of my teachers always pounded into our minds to not procrastinate. I never really took that to heart and I wish I had! I always put things off until the very last second, then I get all sorts of stressed out about everything I have to get done in a tiny period of time. It really is no fun for anyone! Learn now and make a habbit of forcing yourself to do things early, it will make life so much easier.
My good friend Tasha Newman has informed me about “Spirit Day”. It’s a day to wear purple, like Erase the Hate day, and support all the kids out there who get bullied. There is more information about it on this Facebook link, so check it out.
Also, Tasha will be at a table in the Atrium at the school on Thursday October 20th passing out some pamphlets, candy, and ribbons. It will be a good time so remember to stop by when passing!! :]
So, I was hitting up YouTube for some inspiration for my choreography class, (yes that is a class here! They basically have everything!) and I stumbled upon this choreographer. She is amazing! Check out her page and watch some videos. If that doesn’t make you want to move, I don’t know what would! Also, I challenge you to watch these videos then come up with your own dance! Post it on Facebook, YouTUbe, your own blog, anywhere! Put yourself out there! :]
Well for my first post, I wanted to get the word out about Erase Hate Day. My friend posted this on his Facebook wall and I think it is an awesome thing to support.
Erase Hate Day is a day created in honor of Matthew Shepard, who, on October 7th, 1998 was tied to a split-rail fence and beaten to death by two men simply because he was a homosexual. Help spread the word that hate gets us nowhere! All over, spread love and peace and let everyone know that we can make the world a better place if we just ERASE THE HATE!
WEAR PURPLE AND WRITE ERASE HATE ON YOUR ARMS TO SPREAD OUR MESSAGE. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS! POST THIS ON YOUR WALL! TELL YOUR SCHOOL! GET EVERYONE INVOLVED! SPREAD THE WORD AND ERASE HATE!
Everyone deserves love no matter your race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, etc. Help us spread the word that HATE IS NOT OKAY.
