Introversion and Trust

Dear Summer, Today I got to see many of my friends in real life instead of on a laptop screen. After being in quarantine for about 2 months, it's been hard not being able to see my friends instead of on a screen. Although, it has also shown me that I am definitely an introvert, ha! I learned that on calls like Zoom, FaceTime, friends! and Microsoft Teams I am more comfortable talking and it doesn’t feel like a chore. Sometimes when I am having a conversation in normal life, I get nervous and think that what I am about to say will not be accepted by others.

Onstage Mishaps

Dear Summer, Since I haven’t embarrassed myself enough to you yet, I have decided to write about my awful onstage mishaps from the many musicals that I have been in because I have nothing better to do during the summer and this waiting period. I didn’t have many mishaps when I was an ensemble member in the beginning of my musical journey, but I had many mishaps when I was a named role.

Meet Me!

Hey everybody! My name is Aubrey and I started this blog for fun over coronacation as letters to my dear friend Summer. I’ll start out this blog by introducing myself and answering some FAQs! Grade? I will be finishing my junior year in May 2020 and my senior year is going to start in August 2020. Favorite music? I like to listen to so many different genres, this is so hard! I like listening to Bethel music, Sleeping at Last, Taylor Swift (specifically Red), and Musicals. Right now over coronacation break, I am really loving listening to Lemonade Mouth. It brings back so many good memories! Favorite Podcasts? I love listening to podcasts on airplanes, long car rides, and going on walks. My favorites are: The Sleeping at Last Podcast, Frick Frack, Head in The Clouds, The Bear and the Swan, and The Church Stories Podcast. Favorite Fast Food? I really like this local fast food restaurant called the Olive Oil Grille. But, I also really like Chick-fil-a (the blessed chicken) a
