If it's your dream, gofor it. No matter what anyone says. Get on that stage(;
That's all I want too! I'm 12
If it's what you really want, go for it.
If you want to be an actress, then do it. the only think keeping you from it is you. Its not a crime, its not stupid. Just do it
Evanna Lynch, who played Luna in Harry Potter, had only been in school plays and had no experience and her mum didn't want her to audition for Harry Potter coz she thought she'd never get it. But she did, out of thousands of other girls. Follow your heart.
It's not stupid. Acting is my favourite thing to do. Getting to be someone else is the highlight of my day. If it's what makes you happy, make it happen. Don't think about what everyone else will say. Do it for you. <3
Okay at first I read "I want to be a bad actress...so bad"
But now that I read it correctly, all I have to say is...you're the only one keeping you from this dream. You can't be shy.
Oh my goodness isn't acting just the most wonderful thing in the world? Plus, there are so many ways to be an actress/actor or even involved in theater that no one even thinks about. Trying out for school plays is a great way to get experience and improve, but once you're out of school, it's not a huge thing to anyone else. Once you've used those plays to improve, start looking around for things you can do in the community. Where I live, we have a ton of community theaters, so I don't know how easy that will be for you. There are also other things you can do to get your name out there. I'm currently studying to be a theater teacher so I can earn enough money to live, but still have time to do theater outside of work. I'm also currently writing a musical. A lot of actors and actresses start out by writing themselves into a script, so that's another option. Breaking into the acting business isn't as hard as everyone makes it out to be. Now if you wanted to be famous, that's a whole different ball game.
I believe you can do it though. :D I think it's great that you have such a wonderful dream.
See if your school puts on plays or has a theater club. If not, then look around the local area and see if there are any opportunities there. Siting in your room wishing won't get you anywhere, no matter how badly you want something. You have to take action and be proactive.
Don't let anyone else try and tell you what to do with your life. You can always start out by being in community or school plays. There are people out there just like you, but just remember that it's your life and others can't tell you how to live it.
Okay, I'm a little older than you, but don't worry, you're not the only one. Acting is the thing I want to do too. :) Anyway, anyone who calls you silly is probably jealous. Ignore them. If you truly love it, keep going, because in a few years, you'll be so above those people! Hope this helps. :)
Honestly, try. Try your hardest to make it up to them, what you did was awful, but if you really love them and want to be a part of their lives, I'm sure with enough time and effort, they'll forgive you.
My mom left me when I was little...I took over her spot and practically the mother figure for my brother. Now my sister is leaving me...
Maybe you should've thought about what would be missed and the commitments you made?
i have a half sister named kyla... i dont know her cuz our dad left both of us with our mothers and never looked back
Why do you say you didn't know she was pregnant like that makes it any better? You still left your wife when you both had a daughter together already that you obviously knew about. You'd be very lucky if they forgave you.
You have to decide whether you really think it's worth contacting them or not. You would have to be pretty damn apologetic though
Just try. You owe them that much.
You won't know until you try. Just don't get your hopes up.
This post kind of hit home for me because this really reminds me of my own father. My father left when I was three and my mother was pregnant too. I almost thought you were him. But that was twelve years ago, my mother was pregnant with a boy and not a girl and my father's name is not William, nor is my name Kyla or Danni. I think it kind of depends on what kind of father you are to them. My father lives on the other side of the world and he calls like two times a year at most so I kind of hate him. I think that if you'd at least try to be there for them, they might forgive you. I know that I might. I don't know you or your daughters though, so I can't really speak for them. So, just try to be there for them and show that you care, visit them if you are able too. Good luck.

I don't think that they should be expected to forgive you. They probably didn't have the easiest time after you left and you are basically a stranger, so you can't expect them to just treat you like their father. You should at least contact them though, at the very least they deserve to know who their father was.
Sizes and boyfriends do not determine someone's beauty.
Maybe the feeling is mutual for her.
story of my life...
I agree with what others have written, and I don't know if this helps, but I really love these songs and they have a great message...
Amy Macdonald - This Pretty Face
TLC - Unpretty
Maybe they'll help you realize why your sister wishes to be more like you, and you more like her.
Beauty doesn't define happiness. I studied positive psychology and I can send you scientific researches to prove that it doesn't. Though I don't think it would make you feel better.
So let me explain it like this. Do you know why people become obsessed with plastic surgery? When they do their first one they experience a large amount of happiness that is short-lived. They become addicted to that feeling and they go for more surgeries in order to feel like that again.
I know it's not easy being the one in the shadow, but don't focus on things that will make you happy short-term. Try to achieve something that will please you in the long run. Take your sister as an example; being pretty and having perfect life didn't make her happy, did it?

It's a typo... she meant to say she but she said he. That's the only way it makes sense.
Wait, HER boyfriend says he wishes she was more like you? That's... what.
Also, don't be so sure your sisters life is so great. I have a 23 inch waist, I've had a good few boyfriends/things in my life. Am I happy? By a therapists definition not even slightly, in fact I'm probably a suicide risk. It's easy to assume that one's life might be easier because they have the looks and the guys, but happiness isn't that simple, unfortunately.
My advice would be to try to stop focusing on the material things. Try to make your MIND happier and prettier, not the physical you, if that makes sense.

nothing to add. OP's sister can have whatever she wants, the risk of being unhappy is still there.
This is wrong. Screw them. At least you know what happen. since i won't be there to support you and give you hugs, just stay strong
You need to go to the principal about this NOW. If he/she refuses to do anything, go to the board of education. This is WRONG.
What the hell is wrong with that teacher if people automatically assumed he'd had sex with his student after seeing her in his car? That's just weird.
On a seroius note, are you sure people qenuinely believe that rumour is true? If you've tried explaining the situation with your sick mum, why wouldn't they believe you? Maybe the students just find the whole idea funny and don't actually think you've had sex with your teacher; other teachers' behaviour confuses me, though.
Talking to that teacher might be a good idea, OP. The situation you're in affects him as well so he'll probably be ready to help you.
Those other teachers won't listen? They should be fired.
Your teacher must realize this is going on. I think that he needs to stand up to the other teachers and show them proof that he is innocent. He could be fired or arrested if this rumor gets out of hand.
the reason I would have been sad would have been that she preferred getting the lipo on herself instead of helping me out of my so much bigger problem. my mom and i are both overweight, we both weigh the same, but still she would offer it to me instead of insisting getting it herself, and i love her for that. i can't understand how your mom could do this...

Weight does not determine if you are fat or skinny. Muscle weighs more than fat.
Edited a year ago
Fat is both an adjective and a noun. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fat
The more you know...
don't be discouraged, be motivated! don't just aim to be skinny, aim to be healthy!
It is your mom's body. If she wants to get liposuction she can, it does not mean that she doesn't like you. That being said, being obese can cause a lot of health risks. It puts you at higher risk of type two diabetes, some cancers, and all kinds of other horrible problems. You should try to start a diet and exercise regime to lose some of the weight.
