Today was our final performance of our musical. We had a great turn out with almost every chair filled. Our director also gave us seniors flowers and said goodbye to us since it was our last show, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up.
We all got photos after, and then proceeded to take the set down, I even got to take some parts home. After we had a cast party, and we also got to sign posters for each cast member to take home. We eventually got home and I took a shower and had something to eat.
It was such a fantastic part of my life. Hopefully this will be another great week!
Howl’s Moving Castle Love Quotes
I want to be honest with all of you, I’ve never thought that I would make it this far. Probably the main reason why im still here commenting is because of the support you guys gave me. All of you has the same dedication as me to be reading my comments everyday and that’s awesome!
It’s pretty sad that my time has almost come to an end but at least I get to meet a lot of nice people and got to experience some “internet hate” for the first time . It was such a fun experience for me. And Hey! there’s no time for crying because we still have 165 days to complete.
Thanks for being part of my journey :, ) and also i was just washing cars and i earned 4 dollars today, it’s okay i guess 🙂
