Day 11: Something you always think “What if…” about.
This is a fun thought. I guess the biggest is what if I have is: What if I had gone straight to college from high school for Musical Theatre? Originally when I was leaving high school I was auditioning to get into a theatre program, but after my grandfather became ill I made the decision not to go, and instead to stay home and help my grandfather. I would be his chauffeur and runner for two years before he would pass away, and while I would not lose that time with him for anything, I do wonder what I might be doing now if I had gone ahead to college.
I honestly think that I would have continued in that major for a year or two, and then would have changed to English. I think I might have ended up living in Columbus eventually anyway, but possibly not. I also love Chicago, so I might have ended up living there instead.
I do not think that I would have been this amazing success and be on Broadway. I am too logical for that. If I had kept moving through the musical theatre major I would probably be teaching theatre at a high school somewhere.
There are so many possibilities there, but really it doesn’t matter. I feel like I am working to get back to my path, and to become that person I might have been.
