Thanksgiving is suppose to be about family. Where you sit around a table with your relatives that you haven’t seen in a while and catch up, maybe share some past times, tell some jokes, just have a great time. I think that hasn’t happened where all of my family were together since I was really little, and damn do I miss that. I just miss every holiday being with my family. All of my family. But now I’m sitting at home babysitting my little brother applying to colleges while my mom and step dad are at work til god knows when. I just think the meaning of Thanksgiving in my family has severely dropped and I don’t like that one bit.
I saw this show at Texas Thespian Festival 2010, and I have to say it’s been my favorite. This show is so deep and has so much meaning. I was bawling majority of the end because it just makes you think about life and why we are here and our purpose. I have to say it was pretty depressing, but I’ve never thought of anything like this until I saw that show. The performance was just absolutely incredible also. Actors were phenomenal, damn they are so talented. I’ve never walked out of a theater feeling like that ever.
It’s a bitter sweet feeling. I’m happy because I won’t be as tired as I am anymore and I can pick my grades up, I also won’t be so stressed out…thank god. I’m sad because I’m going to miss being around these amazing people. We are all here for one purpose and that’s because we love to put that art onstage. They have become my family and I will be losing my family in less than a year. It’s rather scary and depressing knowing that next year this time around I won’t have all of those people to lean on and run to. I’m seriously going to miss it. Even if I say I hate theatre sometimes. I feel like I’ve met the most incredible people in my life. Theatre is like a little brother. As much as he annoys you, you still love him no matter what and will always love him at that.
- Me: My mom just pulled up in this really nice car and told me it was mine. So I jumped in the front seat and she then told me it was a rental...
- Shelby: Don't feel bad. Like a month or two ago, my parents told me to go look in the driveway, so I go sprinting out of the house and I see a vacuum cleaner in the driveway with a note that says, "It's just like Hocus Pocus!"
