The alarm went off at exactly six in the morning. When I actually opened my eyes, it was ten minutes to seven. How does time do that? You say to yourself “five more minutes” and it gradually ends up being an hour. So that meant I was already running a tad bit late.
I was zombie-walking to my 8:00 a.m. class, but I didn’t dread it as much as I thought I would. Then again, it was only the first day of classes and I, just like everyone else, have a whole week to go. From this side of the boat, I had a really good day and it was also very productive. The only thing in my mind right now is how to pay for all these expensive textbooks. Yet, I feel like I’m ready to handle anything Texas State has to offer, even if it means being broke.
Now, I would like to tell you a little about the title of my blog and explain why I am freaking out.
I don’t think you guys know this, but I am part of the theatre program here at Texas State. To me, being on a stage is just amazing and the feeling I get just as I step into the spotlight can’t be described. I am aware that this will be different from what I have done in the past and now as I sit here and write this I am freaking out.
See, tomorrow is my first general audition and I am simply terrified. I know this will go away tomorrow as soon I start my monologue and be the best that I can be but for now, you have a very worried teenager. I would like to say to everyone auditioning tomorrow to break a leg. We are all here for a reason so make it count. So if you are reading this please send me good vibes. Believe me, I would do it for you! I will tell you all about how that goes tomorrow. Right now, I need to go back and get ready for tomorrow even though it’s late and I have to wake up early. That is what passion does to you.
I really do hope you all had an awesome first day of classes. Have a really good week, guys! Go to your classes, pay attention and do the best you can do. This is what matters. I believe in you all. So, go out there and do great things because I am determined to achieve greatness with so many opportunities that are being offered to me. Best of luck, guys! 😀
