I’m definitely forgetting a lot cause I’m subscribed to like 400 people but this is a good start
you say you’re really shy…if what you want is just the camaraderie and stuff of participating in a production but you’re nervous about the actual acting part, then you can always do stage crew! it’s just as fun as acting in the show but in a different kinda way!
however if your problem is that you really want to ACT and SHINE on the STAGE but you’re nervous about it, my advice would be to GO FOR IT girl!! the fact that you’re a shy person who has the instinct to put yourself out there is incredible!! there are so many people on this planet who are too invested and obsessed with the labels they’ve given themselves (“introvert”, “nerd”, etc…) that they let those ideas about themselves hold them back. but you’re doing the opposite. that’s so awesome
my advice for trying out: see if you can get the script a week or so before the audition. if you can, try feeling out the characters in front of a mirror. practice different ways of interpreting and reading the part that you have in mind. also during the audition, it helps to project your voice. but don’t take it too seriously! doing theater in high school is just for fun
also, my new year’s resolution this year was to do stuff in life that scares me. it sounds dumb, but that tiny cornerstone has really shaped my year. it’s about seizing those opportunities in life that arise every once in a while, ones that deep in your heart you know would benefit you but that you’re so so so nervous to pursue. that idea applies to this situation I think. take the plunge!!! and tell me how it goes!
:( anonnnn :( bb :(
ok let’s talk
I’ve found that the best way to find confidence in yourself is to know your own worth, and one of the key elements to knowing your own worth is finding something that you’re good at, something that makes you feel fulfilled. any skill at all. baking, putting on makeup, exercising, supporting the people you love, giving thoughtful gifts to others, hula hooping (lol). try keeping a list of the things you’re good at, big and small.
when you start to become attuned to these facets of who you are, you begin the process of showing yourself that YES, you do have value. yes, you contribute something to the earth. yes yes YES you do, you run this shit, let’s do this, nobody can fux w you, etc. I think it’s through the building of those little “hey wow I’m actually really good at this” moments that your feeling of self worth will grow and grow and grow, and, by association, so will your confidence
you can do this. i know you can. of course the road to being confident in who you are is a process, but isn’t everything? it’s okay to not get there in a day. it’s okay for your feelings about who you are to fluctuate
also take pictures of yourself on the days when you feel good about who you are!! not even just when you feel physically attractive (though that helps too), but on the days when you feel truly happy and your confidence is glowing right out of your precious face. look back on those pictures on the days when you can’t remember what it feels like to like yourself.
GOOD LUCK I BELIEVE IN YOU <3___<3
i don’t wanna elaborate cause it makes me sound like a salty hater! if you like tswift I have no qualms with that at all- she just isn’t my cup of tea
i’m not a fan :/
don’t hate me :/
love this question hahaha. it’s really funny you mention not liking “Drunk and Hot Girls” cause that was consistently my least favorite Kanye song FOREVER but I had a change of heart about it a couple months ago.
least faves… never really liked “Barry Bonds”. if we’re counting Watch the Throne, I don’t like “That’s My Bitch” or “Made in America” at all hahah
yeaahhh girl! that’s awesome!
here are some tips I’ve given in the past on this subject
but I think ultimately (and yeah I know everybody says this but it’s true) the best way to get comfortable and to start being authentic while vlogging is to do it over and over and over. each video you make will be better than the last one. you’ll start to grow into a style without even noticing it. if you feel really self-conscious, it might help to not even upload the first few- just do it for you and see what works and doesn’t work. make a short script about something that’s on your mind and see how it feels on camera. if the idea you’re trying to make into a video feels forced, ditch it. a better one will come!
don’t be too hard on yourself either!! I’m sure you’ll be great! :)
