I just can't wait...


Excitement's overtaking your body. Every muscle is tense. You're wondering if maybe you're going to puke, but then you just tell yourself to relax. You make yourself move around the props settled on the floor and stand where you're supposed to be, ready, waiting. There's a squeak as the curtains slowly start to draw away. You look out. There's people out there; lots of people. And they're all looking intently at you. Your lips start trembling as you begin to speak, saying the words that you've memorized by heart. By the time you're almost done, you've given the cue for somebody else to come and join you in the spotlight. And then there's finally the time to escape behind the back curtain. But it's far from over. You know you'll have to go out again. But at least you survived the beginning.

I've been in tons of plays, and I'm not joking. My parents always made us do stuff like plays so that we wouldn't be so scared in front of people. (I'm naturally shy....) And now? I love acting, love it with all of my heart. I see an actor doing a scene in a movie and all I'm thinking is, "Could I do that? Could I make those emotions go across my voice? Make my lip quiver? Make my voice sound like that?" Sometimes I even test it out in my room.

And, usually, I find out I can do it, too.

I'm so excited. A week from today, I'm going to be trying out for another play--the first in what seems like forever. Actually, since like the beginning of last year. (*horrified silence*) I'm sooo excited. Not only am I going to be doing something that I absolutely love, but I'm going to be doing it with some of my favorite people!! :)

I'm super psyched.

I. AM. SO. EXCITED.

I'm just hoping that I don't get sick or something. But this is a big thing for me. I love it. I'm not really sure WHY I love it. Maybe it's because I'm pretty good at acting and memorizing, it's fun to be around the awesome people, you get cool costumes, and then at the end of the week you get to show everybody all of the hard work that you've been doing.

I don't know. There's just something that draws me to it.

Please pray that I'll be able to bless others through that week, whether I'm in the play or not, and that I'll serve Him in everything that I do. :)


And, by the way, Britt, I got your personalized story already started. :) I'm really hoping that you'll like it!! I'll post it [on one of my blogs] as soon as I get it done, OK? :)

Later gator.

Over and out. ;)

  2. I just really wanted to tell you this and I was going to say it in my last Cathrine Weatherbane post but I forgot so I'll say it here, Ariella sort of turned out to be like you're characters because I always sort of pictured her as being you I don't know why it's just how it came out so in case you were thinking that that's why that's the way she is :D So you're in my book after all.

  3. I totally know what you mean! :) I love acting, but don't really like standing in front of a bunch of people.
    I hope you get the part! :)

  4. Ooh ! how exciting! I love to act too, but I really, really dislike cheap little plays, so when the opportunity came to act in one of those a couple years ago, I passed it off. Bigger plays are much better :) I'll be praying!

    1. Well, what do you mean by cheap? Like homemade? I've been in lots of those. I just love acting of any kind!! :) (Of course not if the play etc. was evil or something. But if it's good, even if it's small, let's go! =D)

  7. Ooh, how exciting!! Acting and singing are my beloved guilty pleasures; I'm not amazing at either (unless I'm in the bathroom in front of a mirror with the door shut when no one is home) but I loooove being in plays (and/or musicals). I started six years ago and I'm still with the same company... we finally started renting a theatre for performances. huzzah! I'm going to a public school next year though and the company I'm with is only for homeschoolers, which is sad... I'm going to miss it dreadfully! One of my bestest friends is in another company though, and I'm planning on joining it. A new adventure, how fun! I wish you all the best with your auditions. I know how nerve-wracking they can be, especially if you haven't had one in a while! You'll definitely be in my prayers. (:

    1. That's so cool that you get to have your own group! :) I'm sure you'll do awesome if you join the other group!! (Once you become public schooled...) I really wished there was a drama group here. Oh well. =P

  8. Hi Storyteller!
    Fun!

    We were wondering if you could do a blog design for us?? (Preferably not over e-mail)

    If you could that would be great!
    Just let us know if you will, and we will tell you the basic stuff we want!

    2. Hi!

      We just made ourselves a header that we really like. We don't know if you could do this, but we were thinking- A nice light(white pattern) backround, and a cute little button. Just kind of a remake of our blog that goes with our header. What can you do? =D

      You are amazing!!
