Are there any skills or talents I’m not utilizing?
I love acting. My first acting gig (it’s valid) was when I was 5 years old. We were doing The Cat and The Fiddle and I was…..brace yourself…..the dish AND the spoon. I remember being in that costume and when I heard, “….and the dish ran away with the spoon.” I took off running. I may have even screamed as if I was scared. All I remember was everyone in the audience was laughing and clapping for me. In elementary school, I volunteered to be in every after-school play I could. It was fun and for a loner like I was, it was a way for people to see what I do with my dolls all the time; create characters and act them out. Middle school and high school was all about improv and I found it to be extremely challenging, but fun. Then college, I wrote scripts and plays and even co-starred in an indie film. Once I left college, I left acting behind me.
Acting allows me to put myself in someone else’s shoes and give them a voice. I learn a lot about people not only by observing them, but pretending to be them as well. Acting was something that I felt I was really good at and at one point in my life, passionate about. Maybe I’ll find an adult acting class or take up improv again. Who knows? I may end up being Server no. 2 on the next season of Empire.
