The first major time I tried something new. Where I can look back now and see a very significant change in my life would have been joining theater. Im not an actor, though I did have some killer auditions in where I scooted across stage on my knee confessing my love to who would later be the Sound Crew Head. I joined theater on a whim. I started by taking the Technical theater class as my Fine arts Requirement for High school, then the next year taking the Tech II class cause I had a free period I needed to fill. Just loved the class and the work we did. That is when we did work. Sometimes it would just turn into a 45 minute life lesson type class.. I assume mostly everyone has had a teacher like that at some point. But from that friends came and experiences that I'll never forget.
The most recent thing that I tried was auditioning for a Audio theater with the local Radio. Very nerve racking but at the same time vaguely familiar. I never acted, or voice acted. But I really enjoy the group mentality. Everyone having a job, though it may not be the same job as the person sitting across from you. All of your work, and their work comes together to form a product that people can enjoy.
What is something new, or old that you tried that changed you?
TLDR: Joined Theater in HS. Loved the work space. Auditioned for Radio Theater recently. Whats something new you tried that changed your life?
