Academy for the Dramatic

Candace is finally leaving to go to The Academy for the Dramatic in New York City. This is quite a drastic change for her, because she has always lived in San Fransisco, CA. Will Candace do amazingly in school? Will she do terribly? Maybe some certain guys will be able to help her find her way.


1. Leaving Cali



 "Is that the last of it?" my dad called to me.

 "Ummm..." I started as I looked around my room. "Yep! Looks like it!"

 "Hey honey," my mom began, "Are you sure you don't want to take this?" she said holding up a picture of me and my used-to-be boyfriend.

 "Do you want me to take it?" I asked her.

 "Well if it stays here, it gets thrown in the trash, and you will never see it again. If you take it with you, if you ever wanted to, you could pull it out. I don't know, it's up to you." mom finished, as she kissed the top of my head.

 I don't want to throw it away, memories ya know? But also because of those memories I want to throw it out.

 I stuffed it into my bag, and ran out my door, to the car.

 "I will never forget the time, when your mother and I carried you threw that door from the hospital! You just had the cutest little eyes, and the prettiest smile, and you had only been on the Earth for 3 days! Come here!" my dad said, bringing me in for a hug. It was really awkward, but still sentimental. I hugged back as best as I could, but he was kind of holding my arms to my sides.

 "Dad, that was 20 years ago. I get it, sweet, cute, innocent, baby Candace, but it's time to move on!" I said to my dad, holding his shoulders, and looking straight in his eyes, watching them water, and almost explode.

 "I promise I will come home for Christmas and Thanksgiving, and that's not too far away! I love you, and I will be fine on my own!" I said trying to calm him down.

 He simply nodded his head, and took out the car keys, and opened the car door, climbing in.

 "Mom! It's time to go!" I called to her. She came running out of the house, closing the door, and jumped in the passenger seat of the car.

 We started to drive out of the driveway, and on to the street. I then realized that this would be the last time for a very long time that I would be seeing these things. I took out my iPhone 4S and plugged in my headphones, turning on my music. I quickly navigated to the One Direction Midnight Memories album.

Let's get one thing straight. I'm not a "fan" of One Direction. I do like their music, and I like, well, there faces, but I simply don't care for them.

I started thinking about school, and the friend situation, and grades, and classes, and all of that other "junk" that is supposed to make you a better citizen in this society, in really, any community.

At the moment, I don't really have any friends. Unless you count my mom, and my... cat. You see, my ex boyfriend would always be spending time with me. In a good way though, being sweet, funny, not trying to take me away from my life. In fact, if I had told him that sometimes I needed my space, he would probably apologize numerous times, and calling me every 30 minutes to make sure I was okay. Pretty pathetic right?

Anyway, I don't have to deal with that anymore! We have broken up! And I'm fine on my own, I actually kind of like it, I can get things done that I want to get done, without having to worry what others think.

I really am going to miss this town, this state. Nothing like livin' in Cali! At lease I'm going to New York. The Big Apple! The Heart of the Country! I just want to get started.
