Oh my gosh, I have to do it! I thought it would be a fun experience to do with friends, and also a way to capture my high school experience on film. Something to show the kids one day! At that point, I was kind of shy and not really into boys yet.
I was late with all that. I was sort of removed. I was just starting to get into the whole popular, boy, boyfriend, party, drinking scene.
So I was more on a periphery at that point, which is good. It allowed me to concentrate on school and things that were actually important to my future.

The timing was such that I really felt that that was what I was supposed to do with my life. I had just gotten cast as the lead in the musical. I was loving it.
I really felt that God wanted me to kind of pursue that more in-depth, so I definitely had those aspirations before the show, and being cast really reaffirmed that for me. Acting and being a celebrity was never really the path I wanted. It was a popularity thing. It was the cool thing to talk about.

I think for the most part, it was accurate. I mean, we were all friends, and it was high school.
