i just want to understand - June 3rd 2009, 11:21 AM

I started off a big off today, but it got better, I had drama and drama to me is like chocolate, it makes me feel good and puts a smile on my face. Usually. Well, today it was raining, no big deal though because I like the rain. But I was waiting for my friends, because we like to stand around in the rain because most people won't come out and we were wearing the school waterproof jackets (you know the slipper 'don't put in dryer or it will melt' jacket?) and I was just waiting for them to come out at recess, but they didn't end up coming.

Not to mention the fact that this morning I walked to school by myself, no big deal, but really I wasn't late to pick up my friend, it seemed she just "wanted to leave early" today. I don't know, maybe I'm paranoid.

But in Drama, I was, you know, feeling better, but we're working on this play and we are a bit lost in it. I personally feel completely lost because its an area I know little to none about. But I did study it at Drama Camp a bit. Anyway, I was calling on what little I knew from that and... it just... lead me down, I thought I was doing ok, getting the character, miming stuff I didn't have at hand and trying out a character I felt safe in. But no, apparently, and I quote "I recall too much on drama camp", I just dabbled in on it for my character.

*sigh*

I felt really down after that, and then I thought, 'nah, won't let this bring me down' so I tried a character I could pull bits and pieces from tv, books and movies to give it a more 3D feel. But that FLOPPED. I was terrible, I put on "a terrible fake american accent" which I didn't notice, "I dumbed myself down" the character was narcissist, completely and UTTELY in love with her lover and herself... I thought if I played a little dumb, but sweet girl it'd work.

Anyway, while I was at school, I was doing this performance, and because I'd learnt my lines and my partner and I had done a pretty good job, I thought I might talk to someone else about drama, so I asked her, because I knew she did this outside of school drama thing like I do, "Oh, so what's your like? what do you do?" Thinking she'd like to talk about it because I heard her talking about it earlier, "It's... good...we do...stuff." She had replied, "Oh... ok." I said, and then she walked off.

Did I piss her off in any way? I dunno. I actually like her as a person, she's herself and she ACTS fantastic.

Am I doing something wrong? Pissing people off some way that I don't notice?

Hey there Tedra (awesome name, by the way),

I don't think you're doing anything wrong, or anything that might upset someone. Sometimes people can actually just be stunned by people being nice and talking to them and respond in an uncalledly gruff way.

I'd try not to let other people's bad mood, despite your trying to maintain a good mood, get you down. Know that you're doing what you can, and that's something to be proud of and happy with.

And by the way, about the American accent - being American myself and having heard at least fifty different native dialects and slants, I'm pretty sure that by at least trying to do an American accent you most likely hit one of them

Hey Tedra,

It just sounds like it was an off day. It's okay. Every off day has a good day that comes out of it later. It's Newton's law :P

Thanks guys, it's just be an off week and mum realized today when she said "Hey how was your day." and I replied "bullshit." She didn't say anything, just hugged me and thats what I needed I guess, to know that my mum was there for me. But this morning there were some chicks that were making fun of me, I must have seriously pissed them off for them to go to all the trouble of REALLY insulting me.

But, I dunno, I'll get through it eventually right? High school is just really, really tough on me.

Hey Tedra,

I'm glad to hear your mom was there for you. And no, you actually don't have to have done anything. Sometimes people get really immature and insecure and decide to deal with it by making fun of other people to make themselves feel larger in comparison. Just ignore them.

Yeah, you will get through this eventually And trust me, there are way better communities out there that'll be even nice rather than tough to be a part of.

So hang in there
