Hello Humans of the internet! I hope that y’all are doing well and wonderful things are happening in your lives. I’ve been very blessed over the past few weeks and have had a surprisingly few number of dysadventures. I suppose if you want to look at it another way, I’ve been cursed with a lack of things to write about. For today I wanted to just have a little life chat. My life has been primarily theater (hence the title being a quote from Hamlet).
Because I’m currently spending most of my free time in a production at Circle Theater (our local community theater) I think I’m going to post just on Monday for a few months. Not that anyone particularly cares one way or another, I just like to say it to someone so that I hold myself accountable. It’s really exciting to be getting back into theater, I haven’t actually acted in years. I’d almost forgotten about the rush of excitement you get from stepping out on stage.
I know that acting isn’t for everyone, but I think it’s for way more people then you might think. There’s this idea that you have to be outgoing and that the people who like to be the center of attention are the ones who like to act and are good at it. I don’t know how true that is. Yes, there are outgoing people who are great actors and there are people who like to be the center of attention who make great leads. But, there are also a lot of quiet people who do a great job. In some cases a better job. Acting isn’t really about being the center of attention or being outgoing. It’s becoming a character as convincingly as possible in order to tell a story. Anyway, if you’re quite or shy, but think you want to try theater, go for it. If you’re loud and outgoing and want to try theater, go for it. Don’t let people’s preconceptions influence you.
Now, I’m going to go play Sims until I fall asleep because my amazing boyfriend gave me Sims4 for my birthday. (What could be better than a guy that accepts your love of video games.
