In a week I'm going to this summer program for Shakespeare. I'm so excited! We're going to be studying one of his plays, performing it, and preparing a monologue for any future auditions. I get to meet people who will be into stuff I'm into. I get to escape this house for a few weeks. Not to mention the great Shakespeare studying.
I'm kind of worried though. I'm usually really quiet and socially awkward, but I don't want to be. I want to make a good impression and make a few friends. Not only that, but I'm worried I'll be too thrown off by all the new people and I won't perform at my best, especially during casting.
I also have to pick three monologues from which I will eventually pick one. I have about five in mind, but I don't know what to look for in them. One website said to pick one that plays to my strengths, but I don't know what my strengths are.
Also, my dad lost his job again. So now he feels insecure is moody, which is making my life difficult. I mean, he makes my life difficult when he has a job, but then the problem is he's condescending and arrogant, plus he's out of the house most of the time. At least I'll have this camp for three weeks.
