My Life's Ambition

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a big broadway star. I missed my chance. They are coming out with a show on MTV, where they have cast the next Elle Woods for the Broadway show of Legally Blonde the Musical. I missed the tryouts for the show. I feel like I have missed my true calling in life and my dream has been crushed. I have come to the realization that I will never actually be a famous singer/Broadway star and I am deeply saddened by this thought. I know that it might be a little dorky to have the dream of being a broadway star and especially starring in a cheesy show like Legally Blonde, but it is my dorky dream. I always wanted to go to NYU and major in musical theatre so that I could have a job where I get to be cheesy everyday. I just want to spend my life singing and dancing and being overly dramatic.

Ever since I saw the movie Legally Blonde, I fell in LOVE with Elle Woods and her story. She starts out with a narrow view of life, herself and relationships. She only thinks that the superficial things in life are important but throughout her self discovery, she grows into a strong, smart, and capable woman. Eventhough her initial persona may be superficial, Elle is not selfish and has a good heart. Elle is very intelligent despite what others think of her. She wants to be a winner, but never acts immorally to get what she wants. Elle will not do anything that would jeopordize her character. Elle grows throughout the plot and realizes that she can do anything that she puts her mind to. This is such a feel good story that you can't help but to fall in love with the storyline and character.

Needless to say, Legally Blonde the Musical is my most favorite thing in the world!! It takes two of my favoite things and puts them together. The music is so much fun and perfect for the story. Everytime I listen to the music, it makes me feel good. I know every single word to the entire play and often practice being Elle in my car and in my room when Reamer is gone. If anybody ever wants to see my production, please let me know. I will be happy to show you. Champ enjoys watching, so I think that others would enjoy it as well. It angers me that I missed my big break. The part of Elle Woods would have been absolutely perfect for me. Oh well.....Even if I can't be a famous Broadway Star, I can always pretend (and entertain my dog).

Sign me up! I must see this awesome production you've been denied of to the world and Champ has been so blessed to witness! You are Elle in so many ways! Now just add a little song and dance and you've got it! = ) ~amy

:( I'm sad too! I know you would be an amazing broadway star. One of my favorite memories of you was singing us to sleep when we would stay over at your house. Do you remember singing "On My Own"? I thought about you last year when they were choosing the new Danny and Sandy for Grease. I was SO obsessed with that show... I watched it on my wedding night! :)
Don't count yourself out yet, you never know what the future holds.
