Why I Love Theatre (or In Memory of Robin Williams)

Ever since I was a kid, I loved to put on a show. As I got older, I grew more shy and only did a few shows, years apart. My high school only puts on musicals, so I never auditioned, as much as I loved the shows, as I’m not very confident in my singing. Halfway through my college career, I decided to just dive in and am completing a Theatre Minor for now. I was on the run crew for our production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and it felt like I never left the stage. It was a fun, albeit tiring, experience and I can’t wait for our Fall Season to start! I also recently finished the intro class, covering everything to do with theatre. One of our assignments was to prepare and perform a monologue of our choosing. The new iPad commercial featuring Robin Williams’ famous monologue from Dead Poets Society recently aired and made my choice for me.  The response I received from my professor and classmates was like a welcome home. I realized that day what was always true; I am an entertainer. I want to make people laugh, maybe cry, and shock them. More importantly, I want to take them on a journey. What better place to start than with children? My middle school drama instructor hosts a summer program at our local library and this past summer I had the opportunity to co-direct. It was an amazing educational experience! I hope to work with children in theatre in the future and this was the perfect start! The kids were great and I can’t wait to do it again next year! So I dedicate this post to a funny, witty, loving and inspirational man, Mr. Robin Williams. Without him, I might still be a miserable Communications minor. May all the love for him that he couldn’t see on Earth, bring him peace and a smile in his Heaven.image




i’m a whole inch taller than this and i still feel the pain

Couple of inches SHORTER. I feel your pain.


man, i like you so much i see fucking stars when you smile
i always try to hide my big dumb goofy grin when i see you

i can’t remember when we first met
i wish i did
i wish i could do it over again
so we both wouldn’t forget

maybe it seems like we’ve just always known each other

that sounds nice i think

i’m jealous of your shirt
it gets to sit so close
you don’t feel shy

damn, i just want to go to the beach with you
pick flowers with you
eat pizza with you

Off-list for a bit, catching up on things I was too young to read. #BTBchallenge


"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".

Indubitably. =D

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).
