I've written a speech in an attempt to win a free trip to New York. One of my speech and debate coaches, Brett, approached me about the competition a couple weeks ago. I'm only competing against about a dozen other students, all from within my county. The topic of the speech is how the UN is having a positive affect on today's youth. If I get first place then I get an all-expense-paid trip to New York. Plane tickets, hotel room, food-- everything. I have to present this speech on December 1st. This would be a wonderful opportunity due to the fact that I want to go to New York Film Academy. Wish me luck :)
I haven't posted in a long time and a bunch of stuff has happened. First of all, I chopped off all my hair, as you can see on my homepage. Second of all, I had my first speech&debate tournament a couple of weeks ago and made it to finals with my impromptu. I'm also in a play and I have a lot of lines and stage directions I have to learn. Oh, and I'm entering a film contest with my buddy Colin. I'll try to post more often!
Recently I've been getting really annoyed with my hair always falling in front of my eyes, so although the last time I attempted this was a disaster, I decided to cut my own bangs. I don't think it looks too horrible, results?
Cutting my bangs made me want to chop off all of my hair again, and I'm debating between doing that or continuing to grow out my hair so I can get the A-line I've been wanting since last summer. Thoughts?
Anyways, today I practiced my duo for the first time today with my partner, Zach. I think our piece has a lot of potential, we just need to nail the accents. Here's my favorite line from our duo:
"...It is too simple.
Life, if it's like anything at all,
is like an avalanche.
To blame the little ball of snow that starts it all,
to say it is the cause,
is just as true as it is meaningless."
