Today was my last day of high school. I just don’t even know what happened. I was doing so well keeping my cool, then it came time to say goodbye to the Mary Harrison Center. For those who don’t know, the MHCC is the sanctuary for all of the theater kids. It is our home away from home. All of us, at some point or another, have had a first in there. First kisses, first broken hearts, first bit of stage-fright, first time meeting friends, first time vandalizing, everything. And now it was time to bid it farewell. I’ve had so many memories in that place, it would take forever to count them. I just hate how last night, our very last performance on that stage, was ruined by a shitty music teacher who thinks he’s hot shit. It was a MUSICAL THEATER class, and we weren’t even allowed to dance. WHAT? Instead, we were forced to stand there and look pretty. Look mister, i don’t know who the hell you think you are, but it is not your place to tell me that I can’t enjoy my last performance ever. Screw you. I hope you end up getting fired. Today in my first period class, I literally threw myself onto the stage and just laid there. I was hugging it, and it was hugging me back.
It wasn’t until I entered the auditorium and really stared at the stage that I realized what exactly was happening. All of us that were there explored it’s every nook and cranny one last time before we turned away forever. It was like a movie. We hugged, we cried, we explored, then before we left, we turned back to stare at the stage one last time. Goodbye dear friend, it’s been fun. I will really miss you :’(
After I came home from Disney, I immediately made a list of things I miss about it. These things make me smile when my days are dreary. Some of them are quotes or things that might not make sense so if something seems weird or you want to know more about something, ask me and I will gladly share my story :)
