"All you need is a dollar, and a dream" - The lottery
The lights on me, my heart starts to beat five times faster. I've been working so much, so hard for this chance. I open my mouth and suck in air. "Ladies and Gentlemen, here she is!"
This is the part where I perform my heart out. I sing, I dance, and I put on a good show.
"Good bye Paris!" I scream to the adoring fans. I had a good show. I head to the hotel to get some rest. I catch a jet to Los Angeles the next morning. I'm having the time of my life.
Have you ever dreamed the near-impossible? Well, as you can tell from that introduction, I have and always will. I want to sing, and dance. I want to be friends with the rich and famous and get invited to after parties. I want it more than anything.
Well, not anything, I guess. I want good grades badly too. I want to go to a good college, but this is my escape from reality. When people ask me what I want to be when I'm older, I don't say, "Well, I'm thinking of being famous. You know, sing, dance, maybe even act. That's a promising career."
Face it. Nobody would call that a promising career, right? They would laugh in your face, or make fun of the kind of person who would say that. No matter how many roles you've scored based on your talent in singing, nobody will actually listen to you. It's a tough world. You need a "back-up plan".
No matter how smart I am, no matter what courses I take in school, I will always have a burning passion for the performing arts. I fell in love with it when I was little, and never dropped it since. I take chorus, and I try out for plays. If it includes singing, I'm in.
I have just started to love acting. It all started last year. I tried out for a play that included many older kids, and like any other person would be, I was nervous. When I went in and actually sang, the musical director smiled, asked me if I took singing lessons, and when I said "No," was amazed. I waited anxious to see if I would get an e-mail saying I was in. That night, nothing happened. When I came home the next day, I noticed that my mom and my sister both had huge smiles. My mom told me the good news. I was in the play! The next couple of months were amazing! I learned so much and made some new friends. We all had the passion for acting and singing in common, and I was not the odd one out. That was were the real passion begun.
I realize that it is hard to make it big, but I really want it. I believe that if you want something badly enough, you will get the will power to achieve it.
For now, I'm just a normal girl, sitting here and writing for you to read. This is not just an article, this is years of a dream being expressed. I know I'm just a normal girl, and I'm willing to accept that for a while.
Until then, this is OhEmGee34 humming a tune and smiling . . .
