“I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they’re here. If they like their jobs. Or us. And I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It’s like looking at all the students and wondering who’s had their heart broken that day, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report due on top of that. Or wondering who did the heart breaking.”—
I almost let go. I felt like I just couldn’t take life anymore. My problems had me bound Depression weighed me down. But God held me close, so I wouldn’t let go. God’s mercy kept me, so I wouldn’t let go.
My sister is graduating High School in June and she wants to go to a performing arts College. She has been in so many plays, modeling shows, and musical performance I know she is going to be great where ever she goes. This weekend she had her first college audition for a musical theatre program. I was soooo nervous but she definitely broguht it! She sang 32 bars of “My Favorite Things,” did a monolouge from “The Colored Museum”, and had an interview with one of the College Reps. We had to wait in the next room while she auditioned and when she started singing we could hear her big voice and we were sooo proud! She’ll find out in 2 weeks if she will be accepted. But I know she will :)
My friend wants me to stay over night at Occupy Baltimore and Im tempted. But the below 30 degrees weather doesn’t really motivate me to do that. I really want to go and interview some people to get individuals perspectives of what they are there for and what they think they are accomplishing. Ill think about it today and decide what Ill do tonight.
