So I was just invited to dance on Broadway in Mary Poppins with my old dance crew
But it costs so much money to be a part of the training (it costs $1,200 alone to just stay and be a part of the company in New York for the first four days we’d be performing), and I can’t afford any of it, so I can’t go.
Oh gosh. Oh, I’m going to go cry now.
I could be a poem
if I wanted
but I’m more of a
hanging in the corner
There is beauty inside of me;
it just takes great care to see it.
You say I was a hurricane
and maybe I was.
I had to keep moving
run out of fuel.
Drizzles are what hurricanes
Put down your umbrellas
and stop chasing.
I didn’t need someone
to weather my storm.
“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of songs.”
One thing that I avoid as much as possible is people seeing me without makeup on
I’d been an ugly duckling for so long, so since I finally started putting on makeup at fifteen and people started NOTICING me, there’s been hardly a day I HAVEN’T had it on.
But, it’s a beautiful morning, and NOTHING IS GOING TO SCARE ME TODAY, so…
So, I’ve already told you about how I’ve moved to a new house, BUT GUESS WHAT I’M DOING TO MY ROOM.
I’m painting Disney Princesses on it.
Well, truthfully, they might not all be Disney Princesses, just my favorite animated characters (like, Odette from Swan Princess, and Crysta from Fern Gully, or Thumbelina), but I’ve painted over the brown of my room to a real pretty white AND I’M BEGINNING TO DRAW ROUGH DRAFTS.
(Can you see Pocahontas in the corner?)
It’s going to be WONDERFUL, I hope!
What if no one that I love
ever falls in love with me?
