Last weekend I auditioned for early consideration for the Young Actors' Institute, one of the best acting programs in the state. It is super intensive and very exclusive--they only let in 25 people at most, and I am the absolute youngest end of the age range (21 being the oldest). I auditioned against 16 other people for early placement.
I'd been waiting ever since to find out if I was accepted, but no one called my contacts and I flubbed my monologue the second time I performed it.
Today my mom got the call--I got in!!! I was so certain I had failed, but I did it! I'm so proud of myself. I never thought that I was very good at acting, maybe just good enough for my youth theatre, but this means that I'm good at what I love. And now I get to get even better!
All in all, a pretty darn good day. :)
