I’ve just finished watching Wim Wenders’ “Wings of Desire”, which was beautiful beautiful and it just left me “deep in feeling”? You know, instead of deep in thought. I don’t know what I’m saying.
People have been so nice and kind and warm to me. I’ve been receiving many compliments for my performance on “Mamma Mia!” and I just want to hug them all tightly for being so lovely. I’m so thrilled people enjoyed the play. I guess I just wasn’t expecting to receive this kind of feedback. Or I barely thought about it.
At first, this play was simply about getting three grades, just about rehearsing, and presenting and done, three easy grades. But it wasn’t so easy, and it became about more than just getting those grades. I got closer to some classmates and to my English teacher who is just so cool, seriously. I stepped out of my comfort zone in a couple of ways and overcame some of my shyness. I sang in front of so many people!!! and it felt nerve-wracking but mostly very nice.
I wasn’t expecting the play to impact me the way it did. I think I’d like to take this thing seriously, maybe try and see if I can take musical theater classes, or at least dance classes or singing classes. I don’t know!!! I don’t know. Maybe I’m just trying to find something else to dedicate myself to while I’m out of gymnastics, something new to feel passionate about. Something to really look forward to.
