I'm a singer and actress. That's what I am. That's what I have always been. The last three singing auditions I have had have been denied. I didn't get a spot in my school's talent show. I didn't get a solo in the next choir concert. And I didn't get the lead singer role of a friend's short film they needed vocalists for. I love singing. And being told you aren't good enough for something as stupid as a talent show.... It hurts.
I don't know how to do anything else. It's who I am. It's what I do. If I can't sit professionally or be able to act on a stage or on camera, I don't know what I'd do. Anyone who meets me and here's me talk about theater or music, know how wrapped up I am in it all. What no one seems to get is that it's my only career options. I'd feel wrong doing anything else. It wouldn't be right. I'd regret doing anything else everyday for the rest of my life.
(I'm starting to realize that if I continue with these true confessions, you fans/readers will know everything about me by the 15th post.)
