It has been 4 months since I made one of my life’s major decision to come to London for a 6-months Acting Foundation course. Yep, at 26! And yes, I am the oldest in class but that doesn’t stop me from learning.
Maybe escaping home was a way of forcing myself to grow up. Perhaps spending heaps of my savings on a course that doesn’t reap its benefits immediately was a promise I made to myself to ‘chase your dream’. I’d admit: At that time, I was worried more than being excited; constantly second-guessing my decision despite telling everyone that I’ve made up my mind. The real truth? I did reconsider when people told me it was a ‘foolish decision’, or ‘why do you want to do that?’ and the typical ‘Is it worth it?’.
Now I left 2 months on this amazing course before I return home. For the first time ever, I truly feel that it’s a time for me to wake up. It was a good 6 months of fantasy and I’m due to fall into reality soon. But more than ever, I’m recharged and excited to see what lies ahead of me.
Wait for me, world, I’m coming!
