I have decided to audition for Regent's Got Talent this year and my talent of choice is stand up comedy.
Ahhhhh why am I doing this!? My audition is tomorrow and I am so nervous. For almost all of my life people have told me I should be a stand up comedian but I don't know if I have that spark. I love telling funny stories or responding to people in a way that makes them laugh but I don't know if I can do that on a stage! In the past when I have intentionally tried to make people laugh it didn't pan out well.
My biggest fear? What if I am not funny? What if my life has been a lie! I don't know what I'll do if I go to my audition and no one laughs. That is like a stab in the heart. THE HEART! I mean I know how to act on stage. I did that in high school.
Wooooo I'm for real freaking out. Hopefully all will go well. It will all go well! I'm just going to get up there and tell it like it is.

One of my best friends is getting married and she asked me to be in the wedding!
I went to high school with Patricia and I remember talking about our weddings back then. It is funny how back then was only 2 years ago. Coming into Regent she said she was excited for the good Christian boys and she certainly found herself a good one.
Weddings are so exciting. That is the one of the things I have learned so far in this short experience. There is so much planning to do and so many chances to be creative with little details! I love the whole idea and process of it all. At this stage of my life I know I will have a long engagement so I have time to plan all this cool stuff out.
Anyway back to the bridesmaid stuff! I was there when Patty P. picked out her wedding dress which was such a delight. Unfortunately I won't be able to be there for the bridemaid's dress picking because I have work the night they are going. We will probably be wearing grey dresses because her color scheme is yellow and grey but I really hope we wear yellow. Yellow goes nice with my skin color but whatever is picked I will be happy with! To get in bridesmaid shape I started working out. I'm hoping to lose 20 pounds by April with the plan of losing 2 pounds a week! I'm just super excited to be in on such a great occasion.
This has already been and will continue to be so fun!
