Back to the norm....

So the house sitting thing is over and I am back to living at home, which doesn't completely suck...Yet.
I have been talking to Jens about school again. He wanted to know why I am not going to a conservatory if I am going to go to school for theatre. I tried to blame the whole thing on, my mom and he told me not to. He said that he knew that part of it is my mom, but there was something more and he wanted to know what is was. I finally told him that I was scared. I was scared to take the risk of a conservatory. At a conservatory, all you do is theatre. At a college, you are able to explore more. I didn't want to be tied down to theatre. The thing is, I am already tied to theatre. I know that I am supposed to do theatre. God has given me a passion and desire to do theatre. It would be a waste and wrong to not try and better myself in the area that God has gifted me in.
I have decided to go to LaGrange College for at least a year and then apply to Julliard in NYC. I need to be challenged. Jens told me that his biggest fear for me is that I will go to college and be in a theatre department where I will know more than the other students and be on the same level as my profs. I do need to be challenged. If I am not challenged, than what's the point?
I am excited about this new plan. It's a plan that I should have had all along. Lots of prayer is still happening, but I know that God is going to guide and direct me. I feel Him calling me into theatre. I know that is where I am supposed to be. I have the bug. Bad. I haven't been on stage since July. It is now January and it is driving me bananas. I have an audition on Wednesday night. It's for OLIVIATOWN at the Springer. I have auditions at CSU and LaGrange in Febuary and March for the drama and voice departments. Fingers crossed. Pray that all will go well.
