Maybe it'll be okay

Yesterday the cast list for Romeo and Juliet went up. Yesterday I walked to the theater and legit thought it was the longest walk of my life. Yesterday I found my name on that list, but not the part I wanted.
For a split second I thought that I had a chance to do something that was unexpected. (Which I don't think should be unexpected...) Yesterday I was super bitter, because in my mind, we had the chance to do something incredible. Something different. Yesterday I was feeling so mediocre. Incredible average.

And then I realized...
It's going to be okay. I got the part of the nurse. AND IT'S FANTASTIC! Today I'm stoked! Today I'm excited to start rehearsals. I'm excited for this cast, because I think everyone is gonna be so wonderful together. Today it'll be okay. It's going to be a great production, and I'm so grateful for this opportunity. Thank you to all of you who congratulated me. I have the best friends and family a girl could ask for :)

Let's rock it!

xoxo, Lisha

Being alone is hard.
Being somewhere new is harder.
Making new friends is fun...ish.
Having friends already here is heaven.
Missing my peeps back home is harder than last time.
But I'm strong.
Stronger than I thought.

And that is comfort.
Enough to keep me sane.
