Helping to shoot YouTube videos.
The borrowing library.
If everyone's phones are taken away but you are allowed a camera, what do you do?
Catch tiny fishes under the dock, of course!
Meet Thumper, the camp's residential bunny.
Creating props for the show.
Stage lights are pretty, especially when people are under them and you see this little aura of light outlining them.
I will first clarify one thing beforehand: this is not one of the heavy posts I promised to post about. They are currently sitting, and for now, I will let the two posts nurture and grow until they have grown to their potential.
Have you ever, for a day, or sometimes a certain period, go home super tired—but feel content of what you accomplished at the end of the day that you sleep quite peacefully? Lately, this is how I have been feeling. I’ve been studying as much as I have been playing hard. I have been talking to a lot more people, which taps out all the energy. In the back of my mind, I never thought about reaching out back to my computer—unless it was to do Spanish homework over the weekend.
My mind is spinning and my thoughts are in a tangle, so I will try to sort out what I can.
A lot has happened since I have been gone. I went on a youth group retreat out in the middle of our state, staying in cabins, singing “Amazing Grace” in the showers at midnight with friends, and playing live versions of actual apps such as Fruit Ninja, thus the photo of the smoothie, Ombreish Fruitilicious.
Besides that, the production that I’m in, The Phantom Tollbooth, had opened. We only had one dress and prop rehearsal, all on the same day, and I had to miss much of that day because of a choir concert. Behind the scenes, I have been helping several of my cast members shoot videos for their YouTube channels—one of them is about theatre kid problems, while the other is about a creepy lady with a funny name.
There’s also been a lot of talk of auditioning for the next show, which I am excited for but have been working up to as well—I would love to audition and receive a lead, but being the lead would be great, I guess, finally growing as a performer.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I am a bit scared and excited for what’s about to come. For now, I’m content with that.
