Quitter, thy name is Brandon.
Today I parted ways with the CentreStage production of Sarah, Plain and Tall that I've made such a big deal of in recent weeks. It was quickly becoming obvious to me that I was having serious (insurmountable, even) problems with my lines, and it wasn't going to get better. It really was a fool's exercise to accept the role in the first place my first role in community theatre: a lead role in a play I've only heard of as a Simpsons reference, taking place in a community far away from where I live, with an incredibly short rehearsal schedule that seemed to conflict with everything I do, and a performance schedule that took my whole summer away.
Why did I say yes? Because I'm that guy who can't say no.
Well, not anymore. This time, I said yes, and then I let other people down in a bad way. And I don't think I can do that again.
I feel like such a crappy person. :-/
