My Favorite Part Is The Bloopers

The famous Hollywood sign

When I was a little girl I had so many dreams. I wanted to be a vet, a fashion designer, an author, a singer an actress and a pediatrician. My mother was always supportive of my dreams. She advised me not to be a vet because it is not really marketable in Kenya. When I was obsessed with becoming a fashion designer, she spent three hours straight on E-bay bidding on a fashion designing book. When I moved on to wanting to be an author, she bought me my own mini laptop so that I would stop hogging hers since she was always busy with school. I finally settled on becoming a pediatrician because I love children and I had a passion for medicine. The real problem came when I said I wanted to be a singer and actress.
I remember very well how my passion for singing and acting came into play. I had a childhood friend who really loved watching Hannah Montana. For some reason I never really liked it. Whenever it was about to come on I would just change the channel. One day she cornered me and forced me to watch. From that day I was hooked. I loved the thought of pretending to be anyone else but you and actually getting paid to do it. I also loved singing and to this day I tend to believe that I have a good singing voice.
I broached the subject with my mom. Knowing her, she would be ready to get on the next flight to Hollywood, California to try and get me a good acting gig. She threw me for a loop when she disagreed strongly with my newfound passion. She told me that she would support any other dream that I had. I just had to stop dreaming about stardom.
So I decided to stop dreaming of acting and singing. I settled for becoming an author. I actually almost got one book published by the time I was ten years old, but that’s a story for another day. One thing never changed though. My passion for the acting craft grew with every television series that I watched. It was a fire that would never fully be put out.
My favorite part of the acting business was and always will be the bloopers. These are the mistakes actors and actresses make in the process of performing a scene. I live for bloopers. They show us that nobody is perfect and they are pretty hilarious. I have always wanted to make bloopers of my own. To this day I still would not mind acting. I have a pretty good memory and I can change to be whoever I want to be as dictated. I can be the shy girl next door. I can be the pompous queen bee. I literally can be anything I set my mind to. Also, I can cry on demand.
I still think about what life would have been like if mom had supported my acting dream. I would probably be rehearsing my lines for the next episode of your favorite television series and making bloopers with my co-stars. But when mom says no you just have to accept her answer. No matter what happens though, my favorite part of the acting craft will always be the bloopers.
