Hello followers, readers, bloggers, people, aliens, or however you classify yourself,
It’s already time for me to leave to New York. I feel like it was only yesterday that I began to fill out the application. I’m so excited to be in New York and study theatre arts; it’s like a dream come true. I remember being so envious of those kids who got to study at some sort of performing arts camp, and now I get to be one of those kids! I am extra excited because we have a two hour vocal session with New York’s best vocal coach David Stickland, and a three hour acting session! It’s like a real dream come true. I’m also really nervous because it’s New York, the city of lights. There are a lot of crazy things that happen in New York, or at least that’s how it’s portrayed in the movies.
There are so many things that are running through my mind. The Hmong soccer tournament just ended and I had to help run a booth; therefore I couldn’t get organized and my trip is in two days! I haven’t even packed anything yet, and there are still so many things that need to be done. I have to make sure I don’t forget anything, make sure Miley (my dog :D) is well taken care of, and rearrange my posters in my room since I just bought three new posters and I need to make space for them.
I’m so worried about my trip. My mind has been playing a lot of ‘what if’ games with me; like what if I miss my plane, or what if I get lost in New York. My mom kept saying “What if you get lost like that naughty kid in ‘Home Alone 2’ and get lost in New York?” Thanks mom for making me even more worried than I already am. That has also got me thinking, what if I really do get lost in New York? Making new friends is hard, especially for an awkward turtle like me. I’m so socially awkward, how will I survive this?
Until next my fellow anonymous creatures, let’s see how I handle this challenge!
