If we're being honest here, I didn't know what to expect at first. I interviewed for the most part, in order to be a part of a nationwide known School of Theatre, Arts and Dance. I wanted to be a part of that sense of community and now that I'm here, I can full-heartedly tell you I am so blessed to be receiving this education. Also, I never really thought I could be a teacher until I got here and right now becoming a theatre teacher is my main goal. Not only do I get to improve on my skills as an artist, I am able to learn how to teach and to teach well. That creativity is far beyond making a meal, or choosing how we dress. Creativity can be broadened and strengthened just as a football player practices until he/she is good enough, and even then still has learning to do.
Being able to constantly learn everyday is both a love-hate relationship. Well, I wouldn't exactly say "hate". Being able to learn about something I love is extraordinary. I learn something new about my craft that I didn't know about or think about yesterday or the day before that. The dislike factor is how time consuming things can be. I'm fairly decent at time management, and even now I have to triple check that I have everything done just to be certain. When teachers in high school tell you to not procrastinate, just don't do it. When you get to college, you will understand why.
My advice is this: I've learned so much in the three weeks that I have had classes and I cannot wait to continue learning more. When you think about what you want to do for the rest of your life and have a steady career with, do something you LOVE. I cannot emphasize that enough. Doing something you love gives you the motivation to do your work and do it well. Don't be afraid to take risks and no one ever said you have to stick with it. You have the rest of your life ahead of you that is in a "work-field" of some sort...make sure you want to spend the rest of your life doing it.
