Sorry I have not posted in a while. Recently I went to a three week acting camp in the beautiful CO mountains; staying with my best friend from Kansas and her family. Five of us in one small cabin smaller than my bedroom. The camp was amazing, I always loved theater since I was little. It's a very open minded community and I met a ton of new people. When I started living with her family, things were fine and normal, but once I realized my best friend's and her mom's relationship. Things got tough. For one thing her parents don't necessarily appreciate her singing career, which is what she wants to do. Her mom is also very closed minded and contradictory. She snapped at me plenty of times, mostly about food. "Do you want some of our food?" "Don't tough our food." She was quite something. Tis went on for a while.
One day I called my parents ballistic, asking them to come and get me, which they didn't because after talking to them they agreed it'd be best that I stick it out. I asked them to call her to tell how I'm feeling. She got mad and asked my parents to pick me up, as well. "My heart can't take it." She said to my mom. She was really a piece of work. Saying how much she wants to go home and yet how much she loves it up here ad wants to live in CO.
When my parents arrived before the performance, she decided to come and talk to my dad. She said she felt used by me and I was unappreciative.Also that me and my best friend should have no contact. My dad was agreeing with her and I thought he wasn't supporting me. Then my mom explained that he was trying to defuse the situation instead of make it worse, for the sake of my best friend and I's friendship. My best friend Morgan meant so much to me and I wouldn't want to lose her.
The day after I got back I got a text from my best friends mom, asking me to delete all of their family members numbers I had and for me not to contact them at all. It'd be best for our "family" she said. What a witch!
At the end of this trip I learned how to deal with people, very different than the people I'm used to living with. Also how to deal with closed minded, angry sour people in the world. No body is gonna get me down, because I know when what's right and what isn't.
