I've thought about what sage words I wanted to share with my fan (hey, Rachel). How can I perfectly capture the past decade? I wanted to bid my 20s adieu with some style. And what says style more than (bddddddddddd--that's my drumroll) -- a TOP 10 LIST FROM MY 20s!!! (3 exclamation points totally warranted). I've decided to recap the 10 most memorable moments from the past ten years of my life. Narrowing it down to 10 was tricky...because, let's face it, I'm awesome. But, narrow it I did.
I'm going to post three a day...you know...because...I don't know...stop with the interrogation...geez.
We'll start with 10 and work our way down (not sure why I'm using the pronouns we/our...maybe it's my 30 year old brain losing its way).
10. Broadway Bound: I likes me some musical theater. I have a playlist on my IPod entitled: Broadway Beats. Also, I love to sing dramatically, which I know may shock you because I am not a very dramatic person (somewhere my mother is rolling her eyes). I am totally an eyes-closed singer, which makes singing while I drive an interesting adventure. In my early twenties I got to be a part of two amazing musical theater productions: The Mikado and Into the Woods.
The Mikado was my first (and, sadly, only) foray into community theater. My super awesome, super flamboyant voice instructor got me to audition, and I am so glad he did. I got to meet and work with some very talented, very gracious, very awesome people. Also, the name of my character: Yum-Yum. Oh, and I played a Geisha. Oh, Gilber and Sullivan...you crazy guys.
Into the Woods was put on by Spring Arbor University and directed by my very awesome, very flamboyant voice instructor. There's something about being part of a theater ensemble. You bond very quickly with people you may have otherwise never developed friendships. Everyone in that cast was incredible, and, to pepper some Swayze on this, I had the time of my life.
