Vagina Monologues #1

So by the title you may be wondering what I am going to be chatting about for today’s post, well I can tell you, I am in a play called “Vagina Monologues’ by Eve Ensler and honestly even though we have only done a few rehearsals I am absolutely loving it!! Getting to know the cast is one of the greatest parts because they are all such wonderful, kind and empowering women- I have never felt so proud to be a women before. And yes, me writing all this on my blog will never do these ladies justice but I hardly know them yet I feel so closely connected to them in many ways…

In the first rehearsal that I attended we had to tell our best story and our most embarrassing, as these ladies know these quite personal stories about me they know me better and some people I have known for years, because of the personal level that we get to in some of our anecdotes!

Today, my day of writing this, we had to write a true story about ourselves and it could be about anything, unknowing of what would happen with it… One of the girls must pick a story and read it aloud in front of us all but oppose the emotions of the story so happy turns sad and vice versa etcetera etcetera. When I heard my story be told in a different light, I wanted to cry, now I don’t know if that is because I am typically emotional recently or the fact that my story being told in a different light was so fulfilling and make my best day ever seem even better than it did before, it was well performed and I feel like my wanting to cry was of happiness from remembering that day!

As well as talking about my rehearsals I would love to share some stories of my own that I have always wanted to write down but never known where so I guess here is a good place to start? I have many different things to rehearse for at the moment and the processes and stories that come from these I want to share not just for you to read but for me to look back on in the future, as ultimately, I made this blog as a place for me to look back on not to gain views because I have done a current trending tag (tho occasionally I do love me a good tag). I want to talk more about myself and let myself be who I truly am, after all, I’m behind a keyboard not confronted by people if I was like this in person. Although, it is still weird to me that people I know do read this blog because I completely forget about people reading this and just want to write. So after blabbering on for a while I am gonna get writing about myself and let me know what you think about this little (what I hope to be) series about my rehearsals and show process and to hear more about me as a person!
