So recently I was talking to my mom about my plans to do Acting/Musical Theatre in college and she knows how much I love it. But she seemed so unsupportive for once. She said: “What are you gonna do when you can’t pay the bills?” I can waitress, I can teach. She said “You’re an incredible actress with ridic stage presence, but you can’t sing or dance as well as you can act.” I mean, my voice is really developing and I really really want a voice teacher. I’ve tried to belt, but it hasn’t worked, but I learned yesterday I could, and I have a mix. Now, she understands why I want to take 4 dance classes. (Though she’s making me choose 2). I just want to do what I want that makes me so happy but not a lot of people are supportive. Why?

College-Musical Theatre and Acting

So I’ve offically started the college search. This is crazy. I know that I’m doing to Musical Theatre/Acting in school. I’m going to do what I love, because you only have one life to live and I’m gonna do what makes me happy. Also, college is a lot different than high school (Duh). But there is no more favoritism bullshit in college theatre and they want different types. In the world, they are 500 ingenues but only of me, you know? I’m unique and different and I’m beginning to like myself more. 

Here’s my college list SO FAR:

  • AMDA
  • NYU
  • Pace
  • Juillard
  • Ithaca
  • CW Post
  • Point Park University
  • Carnegie Mellon
  • UArts
  • Boston Convoservatory
  • Emerson
  • SUNY Cortland
  • Marymount Manhattan
  • Wagner

About my future

So..as junior year is upon me. I’ve been thinking a lot about my future. About what I want to do about college because in the next year, I’ll hear the word college every second. I’ve decided that I am going to school for theatre. I’ve debating whether to just go to school for Acting or take the risk for musical theatre. I was debating because I know that I am a very strong actress so I would prob get into more schools if I just did Acting. But that’s so boring and not who I am at all. That was the “safe route”, and I never do anything by the safe route. I know that MT is what I love to do more than anything. I mean I’ll prob apply to one just acting. But MT is what I love to do. I will become a better dancer, I will take 4 dance classes (no matter what you said Mommy!) and I will be a great singer, and I will be happy for the rest of my life. I will not settle and become a teacher because you make money and it’s a stable job. Fuck that shit. I will be happy. I will perform the rest of my life and be the happiest person alive. Here’s to hard work, a lifetime of auditioning and happiness.
