All this talk of bad experiences yesterday has made me realise something – that no matter how tough life is, you’ve got those who will make you smile.
At Drama school, I have some who do just that. It’s important because when we get to our second year and perform a final show together next summer, we have to be strong and make each day count. Sure, we will have our good days or bad, but we need to always be with each other. Whither it’s cheering someone up when they have stage fright, help with stage movements (without arguing or getting annoyed with them) or just simply smiling and be friendly.
The other day, I felt extremely sick after I overdid myself. When some of my peers realised this, they came to the rescue. They brought me a glass of water to drink, fanned me, and poured water onto my neck to cool me down, checked to see if I was alright and stayed with me until my Dad came to pick me up. They’re really thoughtful to do this and they didn’t have to. But since they insisted, I could I say “no”? Poor Jacob looked in shock when one of the teachers had asked me to fetch me water. I could tell he was worried because he had never seen me sick before. Bless him, though; he’s got a heart of gold just like all the others who helped. 😊
However, it’s also important to consider standing up for yourself, which is the process I’m doing right now. It may not be easy but it’s the risk I have to take. You can do this, Georgina Latimer. You can do this! 😊
