Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo




I used to be a bit of an actress. 'Used to,' you think, your eyebrows creasing in mockery.

Our Grade 8 production, Glimpses, featured a series of spotlighted soliloquies.

My part? The cheerleader-esque cool girl.

It couldn't have been more outside of my comfort zone ... and so much closer to the girl I wished I was.

I was dreadfully shy back then but acting let me become someone else, step into a fantasy world where I could be who I wanted to be.

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go was the finale song for Glimpses. And we all had to dance.

I remember it like it was yesterday. Just like I remember every word to this song ... no matter how hard core my rock 'n' roll has become.
