My Mini Tribute to Acting Up.

Today is an "I miss Acting Up" day.
In AU, I learned many things.

If it's not yours, don't touch it.
Top of your intelligence.
Be cheerfully flexible.
Fake it 'til you make it.
Be a team builder
Leave it better than you found it.
Always auditioning.
Laurel is center. 

But, I'd say the one rule we pretty much kept all year round was:
Leave your ego at the door.
I know you're thinking, "That's not true"
BUT I will tell you. It wasn't until the senior banquet each year, that we realized that other people in the group actually owned normal clothing, and knew how to brush their hair.
It was impossible to have an ego when you looked and acted the way we did.

Anyways, I'm super missing my Acting Up family, and here are a few of my favorite photos from my three years in Acting Up, that I think exemplify our lack of ego :) 
And some that are just swell.




I miss this.


 Sophomore Girls (above)
Even though we obviously weren't all sophomores.. we always just referred to ourselves as the sophomore girls.

Airplane Buddies! (left)
Meg and Mare always flew next to each other.

 This is the time that we skipped World of Color and rode Tower of Terror 8+ times.

 Cong-a-Long-e-Bong wearing my ears. 

 
Acting Up always has the best boys.

My attractive best friend.
He's gonna be SUCH a good missionary with that face. 


This was when we performed The Three Little Pigs in Da' Hood.  

"INDIANS!"  

So there was this girl.
And she went to see her bishop.
She was wearing one of those suits that protects you from bees.
And the bishop said.
"I think you misunderstood when I called you to be the beehive president." 
Isn't that hysterical?
Oh, Aubs.  

 Tradition.

 Singing in the vans. Always a must.
Aren't we attractive? 



This is the time Maddie slapped me in the face with a tortilla.
And she yelled,
"TORTILLA!"




These are the days.
Strengthen our brother.
Help each other home.

I'd say that aside from leaving our egos at the door, being cheerfully flexible and faking it 'til we made it... the number one thing I learned in Acting Up was to help each other home. 
And we did  :)

Yep.


If you want to be happy, be.
