I'm a 19-year-old theater major, my emphasis is in scenic design. I take things day by day. I'm a believer in acceptance and compassion for all. I have an addiction to Harry Potter, Lilo and Stitch, black and white movies, anything theater or design related, and everything Disney. My hope is to become a Disney Imagineer. Even though I'm still figuring out who I am, what I want, and where I'm going, I wouldn't trade my life for anything.
Richard Brody on why modern acting asks too much of performers: http://nyr.kr/1gT34GP
“An actor’s attempted excavation of her own deepest and harshest experiences to lend them to characters adds a dimension of self-revelation (even if only to oneself), of wounds reopened and memories relived, that would make for agony in therapy.”
emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
this is important because so many people don’t know this
