I’m so close to being done with my first year of college and to be honest I just want it to be over. I am tired. I am sick. I just want to be done with finals and be at home. I do not want to pack but it’s a necessary part of the year ending. So much has happened this year. I’ve met some amazing people while I’ve been here and as much as I’ll miss them I know I’ll see them next year. I really miss my friends back home and I hope that I can see them when I get home because I really need them. This year has been tough but it’s been fun and I’ve learned a lot about myself and others. It’s been a year and about a month since I’ve been with my boyfriend and I couldn’t be happier. He is really the best thing that happened to me and I can’t wait for our future. He is amazing. I’ve become more confident with my work. I am my toughest critic and I always will be but being here has reminded me why I love this stuff in the first place. I’m a performer and a theatre kid for life. I love it. It gets hard and sometimes I sit and wonder am I really doing this? But I get so inspired and excited about things and it keeps me going. I am looking forward to the summer. I am still searching for a job which is pretty upsetting but I am staying hopeful. I auditioned for Beauty and the Beast today and I have been very sick so I was pretty worried about my audition but I ended up doing better than I thought and I got in. I can’t wait to start auditioning for roles and rehearsing. I’m very excited to be working with David in one of my favorite shows. Next year is going to be incredibly busy. I am going to be an RA and it’s a big year in my department involving juries so I will definitely be busy with my floor and auditions and classes. It’s been a crazy year and it was a great experience but I am so ready to just go home.
