Did I Mention that I'll Miss You?

I was in a play last week, and you've heard me rave about how fun it is to be on stage, but the best part is the people. The cast is my extended (and crazy) family. When I first started working with them in Pride & Prejudice, I considered myself on the outside looking in, but now, after two more years, I feel like we're close in a way that regular friends aren't, because we've worked for something and created something together.

This makes me sad. I'm sad because I'm really going to miss them when I go to public high school next year. This fact will end my existence as far as I'm concerned. It was my parents' decision, and I fought it but eventually I wonder, what's the point? I'm not going to change anything anyway. And sometimes, when I cry myself to sleep at night, I wonder if maybe I really am a theatre person because I am so dramatic.


  1. Oh Melissa!! How Jealous I will be of all those lucky people you will be going to school with. Don't cry yourself to sleep. Think of all the new friends you will make. Oh Melissa!!

  2. I totally understand what you mean. I used to do a musical theater team near where I live. While I was only in it for 2 years (some were in it for 7!), we became a family. We called each other family, and while we loved each other like family, we also fought like family. All through it though we all knew we would be miserable if we ever got split up. However, two years ago, our director had to close it down because she was moving. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. I still miss everyone, but I joined another drama group with my home-school co-op and now I have another family.

    Will be praying for you as you transition to public school next year! I know it will be hard, but God will bring you through it!
