I had a lot of great posts lined up for this week, but all I really want to write about is what I did as I was walking home after my day ended. I live near a theater, just a couple blocks away, and have lived here for about two years never thinking much about it. But today were the sign-ups for a play. A special type of play where you don’t have to have any acting experience and it’s all created in one day. You go in at 10:00 am and at 8:00 pm that night you perform. With no experience whatsoever.
And guess what?
I signed up.
And I have no acting experience. Whatsoever.
It’s the ultimate acting debut, millennial style – “instant theatrical gratification.” Starting this blog was one of those things that I put off for a long time, because I knew that when I did, this sort of thing was bound to happen. I had to be prepared for the resulting rush that only comes when you start something new, and you put yourself out there, and you’re not quite sure what the heck is going to happen. And then everything is okay and you realize you don’t remember what you were so worried about in the first place. It’s a little like attaching wings to yourself and once you do that, you can’t help but want to fly.
