Well.

Tomorrow's the play. I'm nervous. Am I the only one who's nerves are connected to their stomach?
I have four lines, but I wish I had none. I honestly wish I'd never tried out for this play! I mean it's been fun, but I am an extreme worrier so this has just been another thing to stress me out lately. I can't wait till I wake up on Saturday morning and tell myself that it's over. I would explain why I'm worried and all but I won't even get into that because I don't think you would understand. Even one of the people I'm closest to doesn't really understand.
Have you ever had that where people understand to a certain extent but they don't exactly get what you're going through? I'm going to stop ranting to you now because I don't need to burden you with all this junk ;P
Also thank you so much to HildaTreskie, and Raven for giving me some comments of encouragement which were exactly what I needed to hear at the time! Love you guys :)

  1. You can do it! Last year, no one wanted anything to do with our 7th grade play so I ended up having around the majority of the show! It was nerve wracking!

  2. You are very welcome, sis. :) It's normal to feel nervous and feel those stomach muscles cringe. I'm a worrier too, so I understand how you feel. You can tell us if you like. I respect your decision.

    I know you will do great. 4lines, that's super short compared to the lots of lines the other actors will have to say. You rehearsed it lots of times I assume and when the time comes, it'll come automatically. You'll see. And right after you say your lines you will feel so relieved to have gotten over with it. ;)

    So no worries, sis. You WILL do great! :D

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one.... :P
      The only thing with my lines is that I have to wait for an hour before I come in and then my parts are placed randomly so I don't do it all at once....
      Thanks though!

  3. I'm sure you'll be fine! Break a leg, and try some relaxing techniques, like deep breathing; telling yourself you're not nervous, you're excited; and focusing on having fun. :)

  4. Aaaaw, July. :D

    I think I know what you're going through, actually. I'm a lot like that, where I KNOW I can do it, but I'm always the worst case scenario person, like, "What if THIS happens? Or THIS!?? OR THIS?!?!?!?!?!" and then I curl up and want the world to go away. :)

    So yes. It's okay to worry. Worry away. :) I get sick to my stomach with nerves too. I have noticed though, that if you concentrate on the nervous tummy, the sick feeling tends to go away. Just concentrate on how ill you're feeling and you'll stop. It's a scientific fact. O_o

    God bless and good luck!

    1. Yay! Someone like me! That is exactly me. Just today I was talking to my friend about it and I said "What if someone yawns and everybody starts yawning?" and she was like "You are super worrying, calm down!"
      Really? I didn't know that works.... I'm not quite sure if it works yet..... I tried it a bit today during school while I was worrying about the play and it only worked sometimes....

  5. July, don't worry you'll do amazing. And if you mess up, it's called improve. And yeah, I get the whole they kinda understand but they don't. But I promise, you'll do amazing. :)

  6. Don't worry, July, I know you'll be great!
    As strange as it is, here's something that can help sometimes to relax the nerves. My saxophone teacher taught this to me when I told her I get nervus before playing tests and mess up in front of the class.
    Hold one nostril shut with your finger and breathe in deeply. Then breathe in deeply. Do it again with the other nostril. I know it sounds weird, but it can help you relax!
    Break a leg!

    1. Hmm, that is SOOO weird! I'll definitely try that tomorrow :)
      Thank you so much :)

    2. I didn't know that either. I gotta try it. Thanks! :)

  7. I can empathize, I am an extreme worrier. You may be freaking out before the show about forgetting your lines or tripping or something, but in your head, just tell yourself that you do know the lines.

    Hmmm, sorry. Not very good at calming people's nerves. Just listen to what everyone else said :)

    1. Yes that was exactly what I was worried about.... especially the tripping part because I had to wear high healed shoes and I've never worn those before really..... Scary!
      Thanks so much :)

  8. It's totally normal to be nervous, but you're going to be fantastic. In my first musical I only had three lines and I was incredibly nervous. As soon as I got onstage it all went away and I didn't want to leave.

    Just try to relax and have fun. You'll be swell. Break a leg!
