A is for Acting.
With a theater minor... it's obvious that I enjoy acting. Why? I'm glad you asked.
1. There's something about performing for an audience... and I love it. When I can really feel the emotion from the crowd- whether they're laughing from the comedy, feeling the suspense of the action, or teared up from the bitter moments, that's how I know I've done my job right. It's funny because in most cases, on the stage under the bright lights, I can't see the audience. So how do I know how they feel? Oh trust me, I feel it. ;)
2. I love being able to become anyone or anything. Acting gives me such a thrill because I can delve into another person; find their characteristics, background, feelings, thoughts, quirks, hopes, etc. AND on the other hand, being able to see through another 'person' helps me to learn so much more about people and the situations that they get into than I could ever learn by myself.
3. I would like to think that I'm good at it. Don't get me wrong- I don't want to walk the fine line of pride, and I know that I still have more to learn in the craft, but I like that I can be really pleased with my own performances. I like that I can feel good about a job well done.
I like to act. I love to perform. I hope to continue to act in theater on the side as my life progresses.
