Now, you might be wondering who this, if you know the team here on this blog. Don’t worry, I haven’t hacked into the blog and now hijacking it *evil laugh*, I’m actually a new member to this team.
So, hi everybody *waves*. My name is Bethany (but I also go by the name Beth) and I live in England. I’m 16 going on 17 (hey, Sound of Music reference) and I’ll be posting on this blog as well as my usual one here which is very exciting. Usually, I’m going to be posting more creative writing themed posts but as it’s my first, I thought it would be better to introduce myself so you’re not confused as to what is going on.
The theme for this month is “transform” which is such an interesting topic. As, this is serving as an introduction post, I thought I’d discuss what they word discuss means to me.
As I hear this word, probably the first thing that comes to mind is it relating to my acting. Although I’m very quiet and shy, I love to act. Of course, acting means that I have to transform into different characters that are very often different from my normal personality. For instance, in my devising performance for my GCSE Drama exam, I had to play the role of a bully, one who was making fun of someone for reading. If you know me, even a little bit, you will know that this is very different from my usual personality, especially being someone who loves books. I tell you, it was a hard roll to play and my friends bring it up a lot, saying that they shouldn’t get on the wrong side of me.
I think over time, personality transforms in a sense. A lot of people who I’m friends with, say that I’m like a completely different person to who I was five years ago. Travelling back in time five years ago, *plays that magical music which is used when we get a flashback in a movie or TV show* I was suffering with really bad anxiety. I had been bullied the year before by my best friend at the time. I wouldn’t talk to anyone, preferring to keep to myself. It got to the stage that I refused to go to school and would often throw up due to my anxiety. Fast forward to today, I have managed to work on my anxiety massively. Yes, my anxiety really does have good days and bad days but that’s still such a huge achievement. I enjoy going into school and have a really amazing group of friends. So you see, I’ve transformed as a person too.
Anyway, that’s going to end this post. I hope you enjoyed it and look forward to my future posts on this amazing blog.
