My Graduation. Bath Spa University on the 21st July 2017. Yep, there I was with my three housemates who became three of my closest friends. Don’t we look fabulous?! We had our ceremony in Bath Abbey; anyone who has been to visit the historic city will know just how grand it is. If you have been to a graduation before, you’ll know that, usually, it is very respectable and you watch and applaud with appreciation for all collecting their degrees. Not us. A mix of acting, drama, music and theatre production students caused uproar, but in the best of ways! Cheers and whistles at any joke a professor said or for our friends as they collected their certificates. It was the last time my forty eight classmates and I would be together for a very long time.
It didn’t register me then just what was happening, as I knew in two days I would be back out of my home in Cornwall for seven weeks of entertaining children and dressing up as a giant bear, so my mind was just on my next step of something I’d been doing every summer for the past three years. Since starting that month of entertaining, I have been all over the place, literally and figuratively; being alone on tour, trying to find what’s next and making changes to what I’ve known for twenty one years of my life. Adulthood: it’s terrifying, but I know I can do it.
This is my first blog post so thanking for taking the time to read it, or at least, up to this point. With it, I hope to document my journey, my hobbies, my beliefs and, maybe one day, advice that you may appreciate if you’re an actor, singer, dancer, entertainer or otherwise. If you’ve got a goal, you’ll reach it. I know what my goal is, and it may seem a bit like more of a dream at this stage, but I know it’ll come if I work hard enough for it.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to seeing you here again soon.
Keep Smiling! X
