I tend to over think a lot, currently im worrying about this drama thing i need to try and get into theyre looking for 15, 16-18 year olds to form a new drama group called 100% young producers at a performing arts venue in town. Ive done plenty of drama work (i started when i was about 10 and im nearly 18 now) and i got an A in my final piece in my drama BTEC, so ive acheived more than i ever even thought i could (i thought i was rubbish in drama but apparently i werent). Im very worried about it because im scared of rejection, even though i know, logicly, that ive got lots of experience and that i can do it.

So thats what on my mind... Along thinking about cheese which is my favourite food

Im thinking about this theory of mine...

If there was no music (I know its not really possible but for the sake of the idea pretend it is) we would all be a lot smarter. How much time is that little voice in your head singing a song? Can a tune "stuck in you head" subtract from thinking time? And if that time was spent thinking rather than singing, would it impact our intelligence? No real way to find out, but its something to think about.

^ Although, yes, music certainly can be a distraction, it can also be beneficial to learning. I've noticed that certain students naturally adept at musical skills can associate facts with a song and then more easily remember those facts because of the music they were associated with. I always finds myself humming tunes - often Frankenstein's monsters composed of chords from multiple genres - and frankly it can help put me in a better mood. Being in a better mood can help with learning and keep a calmer head to better settle things. Not to mention, music helps many of us not die of sheer boredom at times.

I can't list all of the things that race through my head. I probably think too much about things. It doesn't often help me learn more or understand better. Often it just makes me second-guess myself or just wander around in lala land. While I love thinking and love the capacity to question and imagine, it can be a curse. I mean, just having all these story ideas, game ideas, ideas in general and no way to implement them can cause severe madness.

I guess earlier I was reading Native Son and noticing the similarity between it and Crime and Punishment. I had to look up search results and find articles and essays just to ensure I wasn't mad. (My foolish mind lacks good long-term memory. I already need some refreshment on Crime and Punishment just as I did Jekyll and Hyde. Reading novels in class allows them to stick in my head better than on my own, it seems. Thank you, teachers.)

Oh, and the elections have been on my mind as well. The prop.s mainly. That's what taking a politics class will do. It's funny, the last time I took a class concerned about politics as much as this one was the first time I voted for President four years ago. Now I'm taking another one and we have another election and I get to look back on the results of my first election. Now all these classmates are having their first elections and, if I were cynical, which I often am, I could say it draws parallels with my own personal four years. Looking back. I wish I didn't sign up for another term in the House, but if I'm lucky I'll win and finish my term limit with a tired grin.

I'm thinking I will be glad when this election is over because I am sick and tired of the prop commercials... seems as if they took all the money spent for advertising their point of view and put it into the federal government funds... we would almost be out of debt. What a waste of money.

And as far as music... when I am on a job site and working alone, I love to have music going on in the background... I think I work harder while "singing" along with the songs.

Thinking mostly about the lyrics of the music I'm listening to.

Currently I'm thinking about my drama audition I did last Tuesday.

Moving into high-school has gave me a boost of confidence. In year six I hated to read aloud, I hated drama and I didn't like contributing to class discussions but now I'm confident in drama, can read aloud and love contributing in class discussions. A few week ago I performed Shakespeare's MacBeth in front of my class which, I have to admit, was extremely terrifying and embarrassing. I think I did okay but I messed when it came to being one of the three witches Afterwards my drama teacher patted my shoulder and looked at me saying "Chloe, your Miss. MacBeth speeches were absolutely amazing!". Going home happy I was thinking about the acting career and if I would like it or not.

The next day I saw a poster up saying 'Hamlet auditions Tuesday, year 7s welcome'. I went to them auditions were we would show miss our acting skills off. Now I'm thinking if I did well or not... Hopefully Ill be in the all clear!
