It’s been almost two days, and my voice is still sore. I had a thought at one point maybe I had some sort of cancer, but that was mainly just be fearing the worst. I have been gargling salt water and popping cough drops all day, and it somewhat got better. However, it still hurts to swallow and eat things, not hurt so much where I don’t do it, but that uncomfortable pain is there.
In other news, I missed my friend’s show the other day due to my feeling sick. However, I don’t think I’m sick, but I do think that the mind is a powerful thing, and that thinking makes it so. So to avoid feeling any worse, it’s been my mantra all day that I’m healthy, and that I’ll be fine tomorrow.
I want to do my demo reel soon, but with a sore throat, I don’t wanna over strain my voice, I’m pretty sure the soreness is from over using my voice all day on Saturday. Even so, I have several different auditions I need to get done, as well as the demo reel I want to complete before I leave for college on Saturday.
Oh yeah, I’m leaving for college on Saturday.
I’m really excited, actually, it’s really weird to be going to college in New York, but a good weird. That good surreal-I’m-one-step-closer-to-my-dreams weird, but I think I am making the right decision. A friend of mine from Florida contacted me, and we are going to start writing to each other, which I’m really excited to start doing, god I miss her. She has two older sisters who live in New York, so I am almost certain I’ll see her again. I kind of only really miss her from that college, her and some other friends in the Theatre Program, otherwise, I’m glad I’m gone. Florida is…interesting.
I’ll probably write about my experiences in Florida some other time, this is mainly just an update sort of post about my life. Speaking of updates, I’m also getting my complimentary Mac book from my college tomorrow. I actually have a pretty busy week ahead of me, what with last minute hang outs and such. I kind of wish I did it earlier, because I just want to pack and get stuff done for school, but in all honesty, I’m probably going to do that like, the night before.
