So how do you make sure you're the one to get the next big part? Get some professional training at an actors' workshop!

Acting Workshops - What Do They Have to Offer?

Acting workshops often provide you with similar skills as drama class but they're taught by professionals who know what it's like to try and break into the acting game. You'll learn great auditioning tips, improvisation skills, how to work on your stage presence, and techniques to get more comfortable in front of the camera. Even if you've starred in your school's drama productions, it always helps to flex your acting muscle with new peeps in fun, new situations.

Acting Workshops - Who Can Take Them?

There are tons of acting schools across North America that offer a variety of classes and programs to everyone interested in the biz. Some schools may only offer summer programs for teens, while others have weekly classes. Teen classes are usually open to peeps ages 12 through 18, and there are specific kid classes for the 7 to 11 age group too. This way you get to interact with students who are at the same acting level as you!

Acting Workshops - How Much Do They Cost?

A four to six week acting workshop ranges from around $200 to $400 US. Most workshops will have classes once a week for a couple of hours per class.If this seems too pricey, see if the school of your choice offers drop-in classes or discounted programs. You could also find your own teacher to help you learn how to act.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
