I think it’s really hard when you’re and athlete of any kind because there’s a really small time span and window that you can really be great and be successful before your body just decides to shut down. So part of me, yes, misses the aspect of rehearsing and preforming and being on stage but the other part of me has kind of moved on from it and realized that there’s more to life than just the stage and preforming. I wasn’t making money, is like the real thing, so yeah, it was hard. It’s a difficult transition going from something that you do every single day of your life to completely quitting cold turkey. You have to find out who you are without that part of your life. It can be really difficult for sure.” -Ali Prochaska
