Trust Me.

I have to say this before I forget. I've been thinking about it for awhile now....and if I don't say it now, I will forget. I do theater. I love it. My first play was "Grease" in 8th grade. Since my first show, it's just been something that I love. And the other day, I was thinking to myself, "Theater is all about trust." And I think that's why I love it so much. I can't trust a whole lot of people in my life. They are few and far between. So the fact that I can go into a room and perform with a cast of people that I trust is such a comfort to me. And when someone breaks that trust, it's really scary to me.

I TRUST people to say lines to me so I can say my own.
I TRUST people to work the light board so I may be seen.
I TRUST one of my fellow cast members to NOT punch me in the nose every night.
I TRUST everyone to do their job.

I take this so seriously because it's so personal to me. The stage is where I feel most like myself. Isn't that ironic? But it's my family up there, my home. A very special director once said to his cast, "I love you guys. But I love the theater more." Honestly, at first, I took that the wrong way. But now...I think I understand.

Don't mess with my home. Or my family. Trust me.

Today we got it.
Today we know what we are.
And today I found out new things. And I realized things
that I already knew. And I did routine things
that I do everyday....
And I'm thinking.
Constantly thinking.
That the things we do today,
prepare us for the people we are becoming tomorrow.
But today, I know. I know myself.
And I've memorized you.
Let it not be tomorrow.
Not yet.
I can't learn new lines yet.
