Yesterday and today’s prompt on The Daily Post sounded fun to me so I thought I would do them for my post today!

Write a haiku about something that drives you nuts. | The Daily Post at WordPress.com.

Dishes are evil

Why can’t they just wash themselves?

They give me headaches

Not the best Haiku in the world but I hate doing dishes with a passion. Not a huge fan of cooking either but partly because there’s always dishes! If dishes would magically wash themselves, I would love to cook more.

What was your favorite class in college? | The Daily Post at WordPress.com.

My favorite class was definitely Acting class. I started off college as a shy Music Major and when I built up the confidence to try out for a singing/dancing group there, I also decided to try out an Acting class. For fun and because I always secretly wanted to and never had the guts. I fell in love with Acting and I look back and wish I had gotten into it sooner.

I still to this day freak out at the thought of speaking in front of an audience or giving a speech, but acting in a play? It makes me a little nervous but it’s the good kind. It’s an adrenaline rush. I love the feeling of getting to play pretend for awhile. When you’re on that stage, you are no longer YOU. All the problems in your life at the moment are pushed off on the back burner. Your whole focus is on your character and somehow taking on a new persona makes me forget that underneath the character, I am still ME in front of an audience speaking. The fear subsides. It’s a feeling for years that I wish I had known before. I had sang in front of people and had a taste of it which is part of why I loved and still love to sing so much. I had no idea that acting was even more a step up from that feeling. And when I was in A.C. Singers, my friends saw a different Sharon. The same girl who would barely say hi and I’m fine was on stage singing and dancing with a huge smile on her face.

I majored in Theatre because I learned that it’s not just singing I love. I love performing. I KNOW that I was born to be a performer.

Problem is, things in my life have kept me from going after my dream….but I guess that’ll be another post…

  1. I love your haiku! I hate doing dishes as I do all by hand. No dishwasher.
    I have to do all the laundry too, hate that.
    Vacuuming I hate too.
    Maybe they all hate me too.
    How to get over this I have no idea?

  2. Wow, you are very brave to get into acting! I am considered shy too and the thought of an acting or drama class scares me, but it sounds like something worth trying… 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy it!
