I'm not going to pretend I'm happy about this.

There's this theater company near me that is going to be putting on the play "Alice in Wonderland" and I really want to audition for it, but my mom isn't letting me because it takes a while to get there and rehearsals go until pretty late at night. I'm just really frustrated because the only thing that I'm doing right now is one class, once a week, for an hour. Not to mention the class is filled with a bunch of six graders who seem  to be there just to socialize while I'm actually trying to get something out of it. They always end up wasting my time (which is almost nothing to begin with) by talking and fooling around. 

You always hear about how the big stars today have been acting since they were like 7 and have been in this and this and this and this before they even stepped into high school. I feel like I'm just wasting a huge chunk of my life when I could actually be going out and getting acting experience.

I was in a play at school not too long ago, but I was cast as a really small part and for most of the rehearsals it would kill me that I wasn't doing anything but singing while I saw a bunch of my friends going of and working on their acting parts. It made me think "why the heck am I even doing this if I'm obviously not good enough?" I told my mom it was driving me crazy and she told me that I should just quit if it's really that bad. But I couldn't quit. I physically could not let myself quit. I knew it was at least SOMETHING and I couldn't just leave. It was the smallest part possible, but I knew that at least I was on the stage doing what I love.

I really don't know what else I can say.
