Following on from last night's post about Telethon '77, I realized that it's also been five years since the 2004 Law Revue - what I consider the critical turning point in my time at university. I also realized that I didn't join the choir in primary school until 1994.
So let's chart this.
1994 - join the choir, start doing school musicals. Confidence boosted when at low point.
1999 - do the Mount A/Padua musical. Dozens of new friends, confidence and self-esteem boosted when at low point.
2004 - do the UQ Law Revue. New friends with whom I am still friends with and whom I consider my closest circle. Confidence and self-esteem boosted when at critical point.
This has led me to a realization. Every five years, I get involved with something that's successful and ultimately takes my life in a new direction, opening me up to brand new people, relationships, opportunities.
Which means I'm due this year.
What's coming up?
The Complete First Season shows.
And now we wait.
