Today, at my school, we had the opening night of our production in which I act. None of my family or friends came. Basically, after 3 long months of hard work, the only person to "congratulate" to me after the show was the head of the theater department, who just wanted to tell me I was doing it wrong. FML

I hope you were doing it because you like acting, not because you like attention

I've been acting for all my life. I haven't had my family come see a single show since elementry school, when it stopped being cute. Classic "we want you to be a laywer or something" bullshit. Before I had my car, I had to WALK to the theatre for rehersal because they wouldn't even drive me (I live in the country. No sidewalks, no blocks, it was tresspassing through 2 miles of cornfields everyday)

But you know what? I did it. And every rehersal I worked my ass off. It never mattered that nobody was there for me, I loved theatre. Yeah, I had to watch all my friends with smaller parts and half my talent getting bouquets of flowers, but ya'know what? It didn't bother me. Because theatre isn't about getting induvidual praise. People see a show to be entertained and it takes a whole of a cast and crew working together perfectly to put a good show on. And THAT is whats important. Was the show, as a whole, good? Did the cast, as a whole, get applause? Then you should be happy.
Quit yer bitchin'

  • A lot of people will spout off the tired old cliché that the destination isn't as important as the journey itself. Well, what if you're on your way to the Playboy Mansion then?…
