Here comes Bozo!!!!

I am the youngest grandchild on my mom’s side. I loved to be the center of attention. I was always dancing around and singing and putting on little plays. There is a family video of me running around my house when I am like four years old, I am yelling “Here comes Bozo” over and over again, one of the times I fall down on my face. I learned at a young age I loved to sing, I loved to dance and I loved to act. I learned shortly after that, I can’t dance. I have no rhythm at all. I took tap, ballet and dance when I was little but that was about it.

When I was in elementary school I used to sing and dance in our basement. Some of my favorites were Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. I used to sing at the top of my lungs and spin around and dance. I had a lot of fun in my old basement.

I have always loved to sing. I am not the best singer but I sing from my heart. Noah thinks I am a good singer so that is all that matters. I was in choir all during school. When I was in seventh grade I went to a singing competition. I got a first place medal singing Candle on the Water from Pete’s Dragon. I still love that movie and that song. It was fun to compete but I was so nervous. My school also competed in a school wide competition. I think my choir got first in that one too. I still have those medals somewhere. My dad wanted me to be a singer when I grew up and got me a karaoke machine for Christmas when I was in the 6th grade. I had it for a long time. I am not sure what happened to it. I enjoyed being in choir in high school as well. It was my favorite class. Now I just sing for Noah and when I am bored.

I also wanted to be an actress when I was little. I loved to act and play pretend. I loved to put on plays. My favorite place to act was at my grandparent’s house. I think it was because they loved to hear me and see me. My favorite play to put on was about the hired girl that my grandma made up. My mom enrolled me in acting classes. Two of the times I didn’t like the teachers because they were rude. One was really old and smelled really bad. I decided it wasn’t the right environment for me to be in. So, I sought learning elsewhere. I went to a acting class where we put on a play at a real theater. It was fun. It was an interesting class.

I also went to Girl Scout camp the kind that you stay for two weeks at and I did the acting camp. That was a lot of fun. We did a bunch of Broadway scenes. I was in The Sound of Music and I also had other parts that I can’t remember right now. I got to say the best line in the song It’s A Hard Knock Life. It was You’ll stay up until this dump shines like the top of the Chrysler Building. I acted in a off Broadway version of Annie. It was so much fun and so nerve wrecking at the same time. I acted in other plays too.

When I got to high school, I really wanted to take drama. I was looking forward to it for years. I got in the class and I failed to realize, I can’t act. I could act theoretically but I would be so nervous that I would just freeze. I would forget my lines or my monologue. I still to this day can only remember a few things about that class, something about my thumb and England. As much as I didn’t like acting I had lots of fun in that class. I thought about taking Drama 2 but I decided that was not a good idea so I went to my counselor for a schedule change. I was also in the Drama Club, not sure why now. Oh I know I had a huge crush on this guy when I was a freshman. He was a big actor. Really though I liked the idea of acting but not actually doing so. I did make some good friends in that class though. I didn’t do any plays in high school. I didn’t even try out. So, I never became a famous actor or singer. In case anyone was wondering.
