Worst. Valentine's day. EVER.
I got up this morning and went to school, where I had to do twice as much work as usual.
Next, my dad yelled at me and I locked myself in the bathroom and cried, and he didn't even notice.
Later, I have to go rehearse for what could possibly be the worst part I have ever had in a play. And my fave director gave it to me! I don't believe it. I worked my ****ing but off for him in Cinderella when I had to babysit the 5-year-old fairy (who shouldn't have even been in the show) on- AND off-stage. Then I was cast in a ridiculous, poorly-written show FULL of little kids and had to sing every one of Barry Manilow's songs while wearing a sack that made me look like a penguin. I even showed up and performed AMAZINGLY when I was so sick I could barely walk, and now I have a part that the 5-year-old campers I direct (for no pay) every summer could handle.
I have spent the last 8 years vollunteering and acting for these people, and they repay me with a made-up character and 5 scenes (out of, like, 20). I know I'm talented. During the only show I had a big part in, the guy who's in charge took me aside once and told me to expect more starring roles, and that I was talented, and even mentioned a possible acting career. So where are the roles?! I am committed to the theatre and my career. But if I get into the Chidren's Theatre play I'm auditioning for, I may have to drop this play. :(
Oh, well, that's all I have to rant about for today.
