Time has sure past by pretty darn fast. I can not even begin to comprehend how much has happened to me in the past year…or eighteen for that matter. I finally graduated high school, and not a moment to soon. I do not think I could handle another year in the death hole they call the public school system. If I had to do one more useless and completely idiotic assignment…I swear I would have burst. It really is a relieving feeling being done. I hadn’t really thought about it before but I am now officially an adult. Although, I feel like a little kid still. Perhaps it is the theatre that creeps into my life that allows me to keep my imagination. Graduation was a neat experience that I never want to “experience” again. Two hours of names and incomprehensible speeches was enough for me. There are a few things that I will defiantly miss in high school, mainly the theatre. I have many friends that I will leave behind to pursue their different goals in life. I will really miss competing in District and State Drama. Those tournaments showed me; hard work, dedication, humility, and the power of the ensemble(which to you none theatrical fellows is a lot like…Teamwork…”there is no I in Team/Ensemble). I will also miss some of the teachers I was able to have…while others I will surely forget gladly. All in all though, High School was a darn good time…and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I guess you could say that Alls Well that Ends Well…Shakespeare knew what he was talking about. Cheers!
Beauty and the Beast was also a wonderful wonderful time! I am extremely sad that it had to end. Playing the Beast was a once in a lifetime chance. I do not know many people who can say that they were The Beast… It was one of those things that I will be able to look back on and know that I accomplished something so neato.
Here is a video of me as the Beast…and singing! I absolutely hate watching myself act and sing…so I personally do not like it. But, the parents said it is good…
Thank You to all of my family for helping me along the way! I am the person I am today because of you guys! Especially Mother and Father who are the best Parental Unit a Child could ever wish for!
