1. Show about Selfies

 Our fall play at school this year was entitled, Selfie. A 45 minute show following 8 high school seniors through the toughest times in their lives. Our director split us up into three different casts, so with about 30 teenagers running around you know their were bound to be selfies.

 I was the new girl to school this year and since I've always been passionate about acting I figured there was no better way to make friends! 

 When I went in for auditions I was so freaking nervous. All of those kids were so talented. I was a freshman in a room full of upperclassmen, there was no way I was going to beat them. 

 As each person came back from their audition my hopes of getting in got smaller and smaller. They were all raving about how well they thought they did. When it came to my turn I gave it my all and I guess it payed off because the next day when I went to look at the cast lists, I found my name in bold letters next to the character of Morgan. 

 I was thrilled. I could hardly even talk. My hands were shaking as I turned to the girl next to me and said, "So this is going to sound stupid, but do you know where the director's classroom is." 

 She got this bright smile on her face and says, "What cast are you in?"

 "Yellow." I replied and she smiled again.

 "Me too! This is going to be so much fun. Come on, I'll take you up."

 I got my script and thanked the director for choosing me and the next day I showed up for our first read through.

 This show was the best thing I've ever been a part of. We became a family through three months of rehearsals, set building, and dinners and when it ended we never stopped being a family.

 The night this picture was taken, it was a show night and it was also my birthday. The first cast was in the middle of their performance and my cast was getting ready. Hair, makeup and of course selfies. What a way to calm the pre-show jitters. 

 We were all lying on the floor and someone called out "SELFIE TIME!" and everyone close enough poked their head's in and she pressed the button. The next ten minutes consisted of texting the picture to everyone and then sharing it everywhere. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and any other social media available. Now I'm sharing it with all of you.

 In a show about selfies you learn a lot about yourself. I learned how to love a group of people more than I love myself. I learned that it's okay to trust other people besides yourself. And most importantly, I learned that if people are really your friends they will love you for you.

 "It's not about what other people think of you, it's about the image you have of yourself." ~Morgan
