Since originally I promised some musical-themed stuff, I thought I could make a blog post just because I love it.
I love musicals! I have met or gotten closer to so many of my friends, and they provide me with a big dream to strive to acheive. I love the scary rush of nerves and energy that occurs when something goes wrong, (since it is live it is nearly impossible to have a show without one panic or another) the bonds formed between cast and crew, and the stress, anxiety, and impatience that takes hold during tech week. Throughout my high school experience I have tried out for many shows, and I have gone from having a 0% success rate of being cast freshmen year, to a 75% success rate in just the last 9 months. The longest I allow myself to be upset about not getting cast is twenty minutes, then I pick myself up, review what I can do better and move forward. I have to make sure that I will not collapse on myself now and instead develop my inner toughness, which will arguably be the most important skill to have if I actually get lucky enough to follow my dream!
