Sam- Appreciation 11-29-15
Sophia and I love going to plays, recently we went to see Almost Maine- and one thing I can say is that my feels are still broken. The play is about a little town in Maine that's so far to the north it's almost in Canada, and almost in the United States, Almost. The story surrounds the relationships of the people in Almost Maine, several adorable couples that not only tug on the strings of your heart, but rip them to shreds. I won't give too much away about the play, but Sophia and I really recommend you go see it yourself.
Seeing this play made me think about how hard some people work, to not be recognized for it. The students putting on this play did an amazing job, however going to the play you can see that some people didn't go to appreciate the actors, just to have a night out with friends. Dear people who talk during performances, LEAVE THE EARTH, I ASSUME WHEREVER YOU ARE THERE IS A DOOR, USE IT, LEAVE.
Sorry for my little angersplosion there (yes I just made up a word deal with it), but these people work so hard to put on a performance of something they are very dedicated to, just for people to make fun of it and never bother to give them a chance. It's the same thing with high school bands, you will be at a pep- rally, the football team will be announced, the entire stadium freaks the fuck out. You would expect the same kind of reaction for the band kids that work just as hard, sometimes harder, but what you get is the small low clap of the people who appreciate the band, or from the people who just kinda feel bad.
I think all people should be recognized for something they are passionate about, and love doing, no matter what it is. If you love playing the recorder with you nose, good, you're awesome for caring about something *Claps*. If you love to chase leaves and dress them up like they're pets, congratulations that you were actually able to do something with your life *Claps*. Everyone deserves to be appreciated for doing the thing they love doing (except cannibalism and murder, then you really shouldn't be clapped for at your psycho school) , so don't put yourself down if you aren't clapped for as highly as the football team, just be happy that there are people clapping, and I always will be, even if I am not there :)
Have a happy day/week/month/year/life/beyond
LOVE SAM <3
