“I’m holding for a hero til the end of the night/ he’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast and he’s gotta be fresh from the fight”.
I have that audition tonight. I’ve practiced my song a couple of times. I only have prepared 18 bars of ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ from Footloose. I hope that’s ok. If they ask me to sing something else I’m not sure what to do. I don’t really know any of the songs from Tommy like well enough to sing at an audition – is that bad? No it’s not good or bad. I just want to sing the song nice and good and not worry about whether I get in or not. Cause it doesn’t matter. If not then I’ll get the next one. And so on and so forth. Not sure what to wear to the audition or if I should straighten my hair or how early I should leave. I do have a somewhere to be after the audition so I hope the auditions won’t run too late. I don’t want to say that I’m not nervous because I worry that even uttering the thoughts called ‘nervous’ will stir the echoes. I absolutely loved Oprah’s lifeclass about letting go of anger that I just watched. So good. My favorite quote is goes something life ‘don’t roam around the mind without adult supervision.’ The most profound part of the webcast for me was when they talked about how when you get angry you can become your 9-year old self. That’s exactly how I am when I’m angry. When I am angry I am not a 26 year old but pretty much a 2 year old. I’ll have to watch it again when I am more able to hear just how again to heal that sometimes angry inner child I live with.
