As the summer is soon approaching, I have been in the very long process of applying for internships and auditioning for something to do this summer. I applied to a plentiful number of theaters at the beginning of the year. Four months later, little theaters came back with updates, and most were not yet ready. It’s been difficult to wait. I am a very eager person and that has its positives, but also negatives. It’s painful when the nagging thought of waiting is always in the back of my head, but it’s so exciting to think of the possibilities.
As time keeps passing by, the dates that I was to expect updates pass. It drains a person to wait for something they so look forward to. I have been trying to cope with the long period and the aspect of this process I have no control over. Everyone in this position only hopes and wants the best. For me, it’s even more significant as this would be my first opportunity to grow professionally and be able to add things to my resume. To say you got such a high achievement is something to be proud of. To not let the uncertainty and the possible rejections not get to you is tough, mostly when for the longest time that is how it's been. Even if the unfortunate happens you still have to live. Even if it sucks so much, it seems like you will never have a chance, it’s tiring, and there is no point to it all, life has its ways. These opportunities will always be here and you grow from these moments.

Here’s to the future and to prove everyone, including yourself, wrong.
