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.
