#1: Who I am

Hello, my name is Bryce Bowen. I’m an 8th grader at Shelburne Community School, obviously in Shelburne VT. I am the one who spends my time singing and memorizing lines. I’m the one who is comfortable being on stage. I’m the one who is comfortable being in the spotlight in front of a crowd. I’m the one who is okay not being myself. If you haven’t gotten it yet, I’m an actor. I enjoy acting on a stage in front of a crowd. I also enjoy music, which also drove me to musical theatre.

I’ve always enjoyed acting since as long as I can remember. I didn’t develop my love for music until I was older (the end of 5th grade). It makes me feel happy when I’m on the stage. And something about not being myself is just appealing to me. It’s fun acting out different characters because you get to experience the life of that character, and I love that. I really love everything about it. That’s why I do it.

Though I’m not a big fan of stepping out of my comfort zone a whole lot, I am the one who wonders what other activities or hobbies feels like. I imagine the feelings, and yet, I can never make myself do it. But then, someone pushes me, and encourages me to do it. It’s usually my Mom who pushes me. And for that, I now know what a lot of things feel like, and I’m even more happy I’m doing more than just imagining some of those feelings.

I have been described as funny, organized, and kind. I personally think those do describe me because I have heard it a lot. But don’t be mistaken, I’m not as narcissistic as that comment sounded. I would like to think I’m humble, but I’m not sure. I am a generally happy person, I like reading, and swimming (though I’m not good at it). I like listening to music, and making it. I’m in my school band and chorus. I play the Baritone Sax. I’m social at times, and a lone wolf at others.

Thanks for reading this!

Hey! I'm an 8th grader from Vermont. I used to live in Georgia for 7 years. I enjoy swimming, biking, reading, acting, singing, making music, listening to music, archery, and much more! I've been described as organized, kind, respectful, funny, and easy to get a long with. Along with singing and acting, I also play the Baritone Saxophone in the school band. I am currently 13 years old, but I'm am close to 14. I have 5 brothers, 1 sister, 2 nephews, 2 nieces, and over 10 cousins. It's a pretty hectic family, and I'm the youngest out of most of them. And don't forget, read my blogs, and for now, thanks for reading this!

    Hi Bryce. I’m Bob Uhl, a teacher at Tuttle Middle School in South Burlington, and I’ll be a reader of your blog entries for WTS. I appreciate your honesty here in talking about your comfort zone. By definition, it’s *uncomfortable* to leave that zone, and encouragement is often helpful. Chances are you’ll be challenged this year to expand your comfort zone, as well, and it’s my job to be there for assistance if you need it. Feel free to reach out with any questions or ideas you may have throughout this course. You may not have any specific ideas about topics to explore yet, but in time you will! I look forward to working with you, Bryce.
