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?
