I was on the stage in front of about 50 people today.

I became a jail guard. I became a piece of cheese in front of a mouse. I became a prisoner trying to escape, which made the audience laugh out loud.

I was subtitling a Russian movie about gambling in Vegas.

I won a thumb-wrestling match for the first time after being defeated 50 times.

And I successfully assassinated the target and quietly walked out from the scene, which also made the audience laugh out loud.

These were all I did for my first ever improv theatre performance (Wikipedia). They were all I came up with on the spot, not planned ahead at all.

I never thought I could do something like this. But, after five weekly lessons since the beginning of February, I have become more spontaneous, being able to let my thought out without being judgemental about what I say.

It feels like the layers of my outer shell are peeled off one by one. And I enjoy seeing what comes out of the shell.
