Blogger Switch Over!
kira902k
I guess this always ends up happening in the end!
I've switched over to blogger! I've been meaning to for a long time, but I finally got around to it!

So, I won't be posting any more on this site. My new blog can be found at...guess what:

www.kira902k.blogspot.com ! Such a surprising web address, I know.

Anyway please go check that out! Toodloo!

Doctor Who UnRanted
kira902k
Okay, so this post is actually going to be short, I'm just writing it to say that my previous post about Doctor Who was totally wrong, and I didn't mean most of it. I know I'm just backing out of what I said, and I don't mean to do that. I will explain.
Once again, I know that it's just a TV show, but I feel really bad about what I said.
I wrote that at 3 am last night, immediately after watching an episode that just frustrated me. I really didn't mean it. Everything I said about the Doctor always picking young, hot girls and making them fall in love with him only to break their hearts, well, I know that I was wrong. The Doctor is a much deeper character than that and he feels so much pain every time he has to leave one of his companions behind.
The Doctor is such a lonely person and because of who he is, he can never keep a companion forever. They always have to leave him at some point, and it pains him a lot.
I was wrong in mentioning Sarah Jane because I'm sure there was some backstory as to why he had to leave her, and I'll probably find that out as I watch season 4. I shouldn't assume. I realize.
Also, I completely regret using the word 'womaniser.' because that is really the last thing that the Doctor is.
Anyway, I'm not going to un-say everything that I said in my last post, just remember:
Every single thing I wrote in my last blog post about Doctor Who has changed, except for me loving the Doctor and Rose being together. I disagree with everything else.

If you want to hear more about how wrong every thing I said was, please please read Maddy's comment on my previous post, and my response to it. Basically says and explains everything. Maddy is amazing. :)

Yeah, so I'm sorry. I hope I didn't hurt the Doctor's feelings! Hah! He's great and I was a totally rude, judgmental, assuming bitch in my last post.
Hahah. Yeah, I'm making a big deal. I just feel bad. Hahah.
Okay.
Post done.
:P

Doctor Who Rant
kira902k
Okay, so really quick post to rant about Doctor Who.
If you haven't seen up to Season 3, don't read this!



NOTE: If you're reading this, you should know that I wrote most of this without thinking, and I didn't really mean a lot of it. Please read the what I posted the day after this one (up there ^^) because it explains a bit more. I was just ranting here, and I'm totally wrong! :)

It pisses me off SO much that the Doctor always asks young, pretty girls to come with him. I mean I know that I should get over Rose, because she's gone, s'far as I know. But the Doctor and Rose were meant to be together. They were soulmates. So very very perfect for each other. And, okay, she's gone!
But after Season 2, the Doctor could have waited at least a little while before picking up another chick! But no, the second he meets Martha, he thinks, 'oh, hey, she's pretty! Maybe I she'd be fun to flirt with! I could make her fall in love with her, even though I'll never actually care about her feelings because I'm still in love with Rose!' I mean, I'm not defending Martha, I actually really don't like her and I'm glad she's gone for now, but seriously? The Doctor is such a womanizing flirt.
But that's not even what bothers me the most! What bothers me is that he doesn't think about his former companions at all. He just ditches them (or they get separated or whatever,) and then goes on with his life, picking up new girls. Erg! I mean we got a glimpse of this when we met Sarah Jane in season 1 (or 2). She was all depressed because he'd left her to grow old, and then found a new girl. Imagine how Rose would feel if he saw him picking up woman after woman?

Haha, I know, I'm totally crazy. It's just a TV series, and they're not real people, whatever. But still! I'm a sympathetic person, and I feel the emotions for the characters.

I just watched Voyage of the Damned (first one of season 4) and I was so upset how right away, he asks that young woman (kylie?) to come with him, and then at the end when he has the choice to take a smart, wise old man with him, he immediately turns it down, saying, "I travel alone."
Yeah, sure you travel alone. Unless you're a young, hot girl, then you can come with him. Rawr!

Now, that being said, let me clear this up. If the Doctor showed up on my doorstep, I wouldn't refuse him. You kidding me? I'm in love with him. But that doesn't stop me from seeing that he is a bit of a flirt. In a bad way. Still, if I could choose one thing to happen to me, it'd either be that I get an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, or that David Tennant shows up on my street. Coming for me. :P

Oh, and one other thing before I end this silly rant. I hate how he has kissed both of the other women he traveled/potentially traveled with, but he never really kissed Rose. I mean, sure, at the end of season 1, him and Rose have the most epic kiss ever, but she doesn't remember it after, so it doesn't really count. But then in season 3, Martha gets a kiss from him, and in Voyage of the Damned, he gives such a passionate kiss to Kylie.
The only reason this pisses me off is because I'm obsessed with how great Rose and the Doctor were as a couple. They were just perfect. And in all there time together, they could have had such an amazing romantic relationship, but instead, it was always hidden even though they were both clearly in love with each other from the start.
Seriously, there are only two people the Doctor could be with, and I'd be happy. The first is Rose. The second is me.
Oh and actually, the Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness would make such a good couple! It made me so sad when I found out Jack had a crush on the Doctor! Because he would never get him, and he would have to live forever knowing that. And they would have been so freaking awesome together. :P

Rant over.

I'm sorry. For anyone who actually read this, wow. You're either dedicated to my blog or as freakishly obsessed with Doctor Who as I am.
It's okay if you didn't read it all. This was mostly for me to vent my frustrations.
Wow, I talk a lot.

In other news: NaNoWriMo is not technically going well. As in, I only have 12 000 words, but i should have 25 000 by the end of tomorrow. I'm still proud of myself, and I've been working relatively hard on it. I should spend more time on it though, I know that. Ah! I haven't read in this entire month because every free moment is spent writing. Or doing homework.

Okay. Good night.



NaNoWriMo, Stress and Such.
kira902k
Hi! I'm in class, and I finished all my work but instead of working on my NaNoWriMo, which I should be doing, I'm blogging instead. Oh well.
This'll be very short because I just have 15 minutes to write it.

So.
NaNoWriMo. It's been very stressful and I'm only halfway to the point that I should be at right now. I have 8817 words, but I think I'm supposed to have 16000 words by now! To be fair, I did miss the first week of it because I had way too much homework to even consider starting.
I'm planning on spending a few days this weekend writing. Today is Wednesday, and I have no school tomorrow or Friday, so this is like my friday, only better because it's wednesday. Win!
Yeah, so my NaNo story keeps jumping around a lot. I started in third person and decided on page 4 that I'd rather write in first person. So that's changed. Also, I really want to change it to present tense, but I think it's too late to do that.
It started as a sort of tween/YA realistic fiction about this girl who was obsessed with a guy, but I realized that that was just cheesy and shallow, so I made it a bit of a Mystery novel. Now it's starting to become Fantasy (ghosts, and such.)
Oh well. xD

Yesterday, I went to the library after school. I've only been there a few times, but it was really fun. I went by myself and I just hung out with the books and my own novel. It was a nice place to work on
NaNoWriMo. I enjoyed it and will probably go back to write soon.

In other news, I made a new Harry Potter fandom friend online, through the HPA chat room. Her name is Kara and she is superawesome. :) I love making nerd friends. :D

Oh oh and you know what sucks so much? Ugh, it makes me so mad. So a few days ago, my brother accidentally left his facebook logged on on his college radio stations computer (where he normally hangs out) and while he was at work, his friend went on his profile and pretending t o be him, she said all these disgusting things and made him announce that he was homosexual (which he's not, and it's not even a bad thing except that she said it so vulgarly.) She changed his profile picture to naked men and did all these horrible things which totally freaked all his friends out.
I'm so mad at her! What a bitch, honestly. I'm obviously some one who spends a lot of time on the internet, but sometimes when things like this happen, it reminds me of how dangerous it could be.
Anyways, just sharing. I don't want to sound like one of those lecturers who come around trying to tell you that the internet will ruin your life, but I will say that you should be careful about logging out and about who you share your passwords with. Just sayin'.

Yeah, so that's it. Lots of homework,
NaNoWriMo stress and stuff, but now I have a long weekend and I intend to write, watch Buffy, watch Doctor Who and write more. I'm excited.
Also, I'm hopefully hanging out with my new IRL nerdfighter friends on friday. =]

That's it. Wish me luck with
NaNoWriMo. And for anyone else who is doing it, good luck! Keep it up!


Best wishes,

alex



Super-Fast Catch-Up Blog
kira902k
Hi! 
I haven't blogged in forever! I'm so sorry. I keep meaning to, but I just never get around to it.
Now I have so much to talk about (Finland!) but I still don't have that much time, even now.
First of all, I am officially doing NaNoWriMo starting November 1st! I have no plot idea and no characters but I'm hoping that if I just start writing and I don't stop, something interesting will happen.
Hopefully, Maddy, Christy and I will be able to have some skype chats about how are stories are going and keep each other motivated (and maybe do word wars and stuffs). I'm excited!

In other news, since I got back from Finland, I have had absolutely no time to do anything. I haven't read any of the blogs that I usually read and I barely have time to keep up to date with YouTube and Facebook happenings.

What's been keeping me so busy, you may ask?
Homework.
Oh, and musical rehearsals!
Our school musical (the Music Man) has finally started and this year, for the first time, I'm proud to say: I GOT A PART. Like a real, legitimate, I-have-a-name-and-a-personality character! And  I will finally get a script! 
The script is a very symbolic thing for me. This is because since grade 7, I have been in the school musicals but i have never once gotten a role that was bigger than ensemble. And ensemble doesn't get scripts.
So year after year I've had to watch my friends or brother get handed scripts, and I never got one for my own.
That's going to change!
My character is Maud Dunlop if you care to know. Very minor secondary character, but good enough for me. Also, my friends who thought they were awful actors got really big roles and I'm so happy for them! =D

Also, this video is adorably amazing and all I can hope for in life is that a guy will one day do something like this for me. Also, Kristina is such a lucky girl.

Okay, super-quick kind of pointless sum-up of my trip to Finland:
it was super fun, I finally got to meet all of my family on that side.
We spent a few days on my godfather's island, sauna-ed a bunch, and had to use an outhouse.

Went shopping in Helsinki. Bought amazingly adorable heels and a cute dress.

Saw my godfather in a Broadwayesque musical at the Swedish theatre. Got to go backstage and hangout during hair and makeup and while they rehearsed. Got to hang out with the actors afterward. Besides the fact that the musical in and of itself was amazing (it was called PlayMe and it was all in Swedish. Check out the video on that site. So professional) we also got to go BACKSTAGE at a professional theatre. One of my lifetime goals has officially been checked off.

Hung out by the sea in Inga at my family friend's house. Went to an old old castle from the 1300s, and got to explore inside the castle (which was very much intact) without being bothered by anyone else (its not tourist season, so it was technically closed.) It was so cool.

Took a 2 hour cruise-ship-like ferry to Tallinn, Estonia for a day. Saw the sites. Bought an amber ring. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Not to mention hanging out with my grandma and great aunt. They are so cool.

Basically, my trip was amazing. Maybe I'll go into more detail later. Probably not.
Also, the guy next to me on the plane to Finland smelled really bad. it was horrible. 8 hours. Gah.

So yeah. NaNoWriMo!
W00t!

Oh and Halloween!
My Sailor Mercury costume is almost complete (I need blue knee-boots or some sort of substitute, and gloves and a gold thing.) I'm wearing it to school on Friday! =D
And Saturday night I'm going to Rocky Horror Picture Show with a huge group of my most awesome friends! I'm so excited. And yes, if you must know, I am dressing up as a prostitute, to some degree.
Oh and I'm so excited to dress my awesome gay friend as a transvestite. Fishnets, corset, and a lot of makeup. :D!
Hope that doesn't freak you out! I'm so excited!

Okay! Hopefully I'll blog soon! Good luck on starting NaNoWriMo if I don't blog before then. :D

Best wishes!

Edit: I just remembered something else I wanted to talk about! On Saturday, the Harry Potter Alliance had this super awesome event called Wrock4Equality where Harry and the Potters and Draco and the Malfoys played two concerts during the day (in the morning and afternoon) that were both streamed live on ustream, and between shows, people who were in Maine went around knocking on people's doors informing them about Proposition 1 (which, like prop 8 is to make gay marriage illegal) and trying to convince them to vote agianst it. The people who were not in Maine, however, called people who were in Maine through callforequality.org and spoke to them about Prop 1!

I never ever thought I'd be brave enough for this, but there I was, sitting on my computer, listening to wizard rock, making awesome harry potter friends through the livestream chat, and TALKING TO PEOPLE IN MAINE ON THE PHONE! Random people! We had a script that we followed, and a question sheet that we filled out. But I am so proud of myself, if I dare say it! I only hope that it helped, and people vote against Prop 1!
It was such an amazing experience, virtually hanging out with these awesome people and doing good for the world. My mom was just mad that I wasn't doing my homework, but I was so proud. :)
The HPA is amazing.
Also, they need people to donate 10$ to them through this site before 3 pm tomorrow, so they have the chance to win 1000$ to help their charity thrive.
DO it! :D

Sorry for talking so much. You guys are awesome. :D


Of Flights and Farewells
kira902k
Heeeello! I just finished watching Eastwick. As a show, it's not that great, but seeing as Darren Criss is in it...well, it's amazing.
I know, I know. I'm such a fangirl. But in all seriousness, he was pretty awesome in his 3 scenes in the Eastwick episode. I'm excited for more. :)

^ I wrote that last week.
Okay, so this post isn't actually as dramatic as the title makes it out to be, I just couldn't resist the catchy alliteration. :P
Wow, I've really gotten out of the habit of blogging. That is bad. I still think about blogging a lot during the day, but I just never actually make the time to do it.
There was so much I wanted to talk about, but I have absolutely no time.
I guess the most important thing is:
I'M GOING TO FINLAND TOMORROW!!!! SQUEEE!

While this is an awesome phenomenon, it is also causing a lot of suckage in my life right now. For example, this entire week has been one of intense stress and nerves. Because I'm going to be missing a week of school, all my projects that were due during that week or when I get back have to be done before I leave.
This includes writing a reading response, preparing for and doing the first math test of the year, reading 200 pages in French and summarizing each chapter with 200 words (in French), and so so much more.
Thus, stress.
And lack of sleep.

On top of that, my teachers have been adding to my piles of homework daily. So now, every day I'm going to have to put my enjoyable, adventurous, relaxing, exhilarating trip  to my homeland on pause, and work on my school work. This is sad.

Why do the important things always happen on the days that you miss?!

So, yeah. Finland. I'm traveling alone, which is terrifying. I've done it before, but only to Chicago. This time I have to transfer in Ottawa and in Frankfurt. I've never been in either airport. And supposedly the Frankfurt one is huge. I'm scared. :(
Oh, and seeing as I've been whining and complaining this whole blog: you know what else sucks?
I'm leaving at 3pm Thursday this time, and arriving there 3pm Friday there time. I love an entire day while traveling. That's kind of depressing.

Oh oh oh. In stupendous news: I went to the Mika concert last night! It was amazing, obviously.
This is the second time I've seen him in concert and the first time was only better because I had floor seats right in front of him. I guess it's kind of bad that the first time I saw him was the first time I saw anyone in concert because now everyone looks so bad compared to him. Seriously, I'm not exaggerating, he is one of the best performers. He has so much energy and he really knows how to work the crowd. I was dancing so hard the whole time.
Also, concert shirts:


Okay, so I've gotta go because when my mom gets stressed she gets really annoying and argumentative, and we're currently having a "discussion" (that involves shouting) about the size of my suitcase. Seriously, she wants me to take this tiny bag. I'm going for EIGHT days. Not that I'm materialistic (okay, I am, a bit. At least I'm aware) but I need my stuff. Rawr!

Okay, so hopefully I'll be blogging from Finland! I'll write some stuff while I'm there so I can post when I get back to internet-land. (we're staying on my godfather's island in the Baltic Sea for a few days. =D)

Yay! I finally successfully blogged!
See ya!
Wish me luck with packing and flying. And not getting sick! (I always get scared that I'm going to get sick on trips. Knock on wood!)
DFTBA!

An Update. And Boys.
kira902k
Hi! I haven't blogged for a really long time, and I really don't have time right now, but I'm going to do it anyways.
Just not very detailed.
So lately, I've been obsessing over Alex Day's album Parrot Stories. l haven't actually bought it yet because I can't decide if I should order it or buy it on iTunes, but I absolutely adore it.

There's one set of lyrics that is just...my life.
"There's people out there in the world like us, who have chemistry and the common sense to act on it. But, who needs simplicity in this candid game of hearts, we'll just keep on dancing 'till we tear ourselves apart."
The guy that I like, who I have liked for forever just never seems to get then hint that I like him. And we are friends. And we clearly have so much chemistry. But we just don't seem to have the common sense to act on it. If I were optimistic, I would say "Who needs simplicity?" And I would just keep dancing. Except, I don't want to continue getting torn apart.
So yeah, my life.
Also, I've definitely advanced in the boy department. "The Object"--as I will refer to him as here -- and I really seem to be going somewhere sometimes. And then not.
I don't know.
Honestly, guys. They drive me crazy. I don't know what to do with them.
"--men what is it about them? Can't live with 'em or without 'em!"
*musical nerd jokes, musical nerd jokes* *turns camera side to side*

Okay, so last week, I went on a three day trip with my school. It was supermegaawesome.
Yeah, okay, I just brought something up that I don't intend to talk about right now. I'm just too tired, and I really want to read a bit before I sleep.
But I will talk about the epic trip later. Consider it a cliff-hanger.

Also, I still haven't thought of a solid NaNoWriMo idea. But I will.

Goodnight! DFTBA

OH OH. p.s. The GREATEST thing happened last Tuesday! I was at school and I overheard the words "nerdfighter notes." Immediately, my head spun around until I found the source. A pretty Asian girl in grade 9, and a sweet guy in grade 9. As I approached, I heard the words, "I can't believe you haven't read harry potter."
Enter, me.
"WHAT?! You haven't read Harry Potter?!"
Boy (Patrick): Haha, no.
Girl (Annie): I KNOW, RIGHT?
And somehow from this, we started talking about nerdfighters. and harry potter. and the Parselmouths. and anime. and conventions.
and ZOMG they are my new best friends. It's fine and dandy when you MAKE your friend into a nerdfighter, but when you MEET someone who is as obsessed with Harry Potter and youtube as you and you completely start squee-ing and talking about wizard rock, then you know life is great.
These guys are in my school. And I never knew.
I'm so excited!!!!!!

OKay, i g2g, friend drama. love you!

 



We Are Golden, Finally
kira902k
Hello. So if you follow me on twitter than you would know that finishing my video for the Mika competition was not an easy task.
And just to prove it, I kept a log of my last 24 hours working on it.

Here you go, my chipper log:

MIKA VIDEO EDITING LOG:

Saturday, September 19, 2009:

The video has to be completely edited, processed, and uploaded tomorrow. I’m going to be working on it all night until it is perfect. The following is a log I’m keeping as I struggle through post-production. The video must be complete and uploaded by 7pm tomorrow:

11:00 pm: continuing the editing process. I’ve got to put together about one minute of footage.

11:30 pm: . My energy is starting to go. Would really like to be watching Doctor Who ‘round about now.

12:08am: Dammit, I’m out of purple nail poli—erm, hello there. What? I should get back to work? I am! Yeah. No, no. I’ve been working! What’s that? Painting my—no,no. Editing only. Yes, sir. Yes.

12:43am: Surprisingly, I’m still awake and working. Only problem is, I think I’ve just about run out of clips. Uh oh.

12:47 am: program crashed for the third time. Painting nails while computer fixes itself.

12:58 am: thinking about how bad “All About Steve” was. Ughhhh it was hilariously horrid.

1:06 am: Given up for the night. With 36 seconds left, I think I can complete it tomorrow.

Gah.

10:49 am: just woke up, ‘bout to start editing.

11:21 am: so near the end, I can almost taste it. Must…finish…video…

11:42 am: program crashed for the fifth time.

12:13 pm:  I haven’t even had breakfast yet.

1:09 pm:  I may ACTUALLY be done. I’m too scared to finish it though…what if something isn’t perfect?

2:58 pm: I am about to implode.  Two hours later and IT IS STILL NOT DONE. Sooo...many...TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. GAAHH.

3:03 pm: 93hewtsfdicxfsoknsla

3:24 pm: much tears and shouting later: nothing’s been solved.

3:37 pm: (the following are extracts from my post on Sophie's facebook wall) Sophie, i'm sorry....I have spent the last 2 and half hours trying to get the freaking movie published, but WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER IS A PIECE OF CRAP AND IT DESERVES TO DIE A MILLION DEATHS.
...
no, seriously, i am so freaking disappointed in LIFE right now... And now I've killed myself editing this monster and I was FINALLY satisfied, I was prepared to be proud of myself, but apparently that's not going to happen. 
I'm sorry. We wouldn't have won anyways. FML. 
(you can see how I can be quite melodramatic at times)

5:16 pm: (a later message to Sophie):  Wait, I may still have faith in humanity! 5 hours later and my mother, the miracle worker, has managed to make it work! ...


And thus it is. Here is the video I have been stressing over, that we spent weeks working on:

I've gotta say, I'm pretty proud.

In other news, Maddy and Christy are both going to do NaNoWriMo, and I'm starting to consider it myself. Last year, I only heard about it on November 2, and I tried to do it, but I hadn't had any time to prepare and it was just a big fat fail.
My problem is keeping motivated. I don't know if I can actually do it. I have to think of a good plot and then I have to actually be able to keep it going.
Hmm.

Also, October seems like its going to be a great month for me. Here are my plans:

October 1st, 2nd:  I get to be a kind of councelor for the grade 7s on their leadership trip to a camp! I'm going with my best friends, and it's gonna be awesome. :)

October 3rd: I have tickets to see the Dalai Lama talk at the Bell Centre! So excited.

October 13th: Mika concert!!!

October 16th: (hopefully) going to Finland!!!!! Squeee!


How great does that sound? Not to mention Halloween... :)

My dad is from Finland and I used to visit every summer and it was practically a second home, but I havent gone in 4 years and I reallly miss it. Luckily my dad is going to Spain on a business trip and he's going to be visiting his family in Finland and we thought that maybe I could miss school and fly out and meet him for a few days! I really hope I can :)

Okay, sorry for this overly long, probably dreary blog.

DFTBA,

alex


Fails, Crying, and Short Stories
kira902k
Okay, I'm going to start this before I have a chance to change my mind.
There.
First of all: auditions for the musical went horrendously. They were singing auditions, and as soon as I opened my mo
uth, a sound like a hyena dying filled the room. I was momentarily perplexed by this sound before I realized that it was coming from me. The three teachers (the choreographer, the director (both sitting behind a desk), and the particularly handsome musical director (behind a piano)) were all sitting expectantly in front of me, like judges in American Idol, so I knew I couldn't stop. I barely made it through the song when my eyes filled up with tears. I managed to hold them in though, as the attractive musical director looked at me in fake appreciation, a disgusted smile pasted on his face, the choreographer mumbled a "that was...good," and the director stared at me in complete horror.

After a few moments, the director said, "Did you think it was a bit...high? Chris," he turned to the musical director, "do you wanna lower it a few tones, and maybe play the melody along with her? Alex, just give it another go, okay?"

I commenced again, my voice
wrought with embarrassment. The second time through was slightly better, though not by much.  "Good," the director nodded.
As I walked quickly out of the room, the tears exploded. I hate being embarrassed. More than anything. It was awful. And not just that, now I'm probably not going to get a decent part in the musical, even if I do get in.
Anyways, that was just the beginning to the horrors that day. I.e., I had to go to "rehearsal" for the play that I didn't technically get into, and since I was already on edge due to my fail audition, I wound up crying to that director in his office.

Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm not a cry baby who can't deal with her situations. Tears just happen to come, not only when I am sad, but when I am frustrated, hurt, embarrassed, and worst of all, angry.
So, you know, it adds up.

ANYWAYS. On to more important things, that matter more. (redundant?)

Recently, Kristina (italktosnakes) said this on her blog, "I also appreciate letting my inner child out and reliving all of my favorite stories with my best friend in a foreign country."
This just sounded so marvelous to me, that it is now a new goal in my life: to be in a foreign country with my childhood best friend, and be children again.
I'm excited. :)

In other news, I finally may have thought of an idea for story. Which is good because I need to write a "significant piece of creative writing" for English class (I have until February though.) My idea is going to be partially based on the morals from Paper Towns (complexity, many layered people) what I think Liar is about (I never read it, but a girl trying to find her identity), one of John Green's videos, and hopefully original ideas from my mind.
I'm excited. :)
Anyways, my computer is threatening to die on me, so I guess I better wrap this up.
Life is okay. At the moment, I am feeling...7on the happiness scale. Basically, no reason to be sad, but no reason to be happy. I'm content, I guess.
Also, I finnaaalllyy started a dance class. All last year I tried to find one, but I could never manage to find an english speaking dance class at my level. I adore contemporary, but due to my schedule and stuffs, I'm signed up for a kind of hip hop jazz class. Our number is going to be about vampires.
I'm excited. :)

According to this post, I'm quite an excited child.

Okay, that is all. I will try to blog more. It's so hard to start, but once I do, I talk for hours. xD
Love y'all. :)

DFTBA



Video of the day:

I love this version :D Darren is soooo beautiful and talented and fuunny. And the rest are all amazingly adorable and hilarious and awesome.

Toodles! xxx

I can't decide whether or not to post a blog today, but I guess I will, seeing as I've started.
Charlene Kaye. Ever heard of her? Me neither. Until yesterday. She's a singer and I only know her because she works in collaboration with Darren Criss a lot. Anyways, I just found her music and I'm in love!
Here's one of her amazing music videos of a song she sings with Darren. (his voice still makes me drool. xD)



Great, no? Anyways, today was a hard day. I was beyond exhausted for some reason. I'm the kind of person who needs a lot of sleep, and I've been going to bed at 11:30 and waking up at 7:00 all week. That;s so hard for me.
SO anyways I was basically falling asleep all day at school today, and I had an endless headache.

Lately I've been reading Anasi Boys by Neil Gaiman. It's great. I really wanted to say a quote from it here, but I can't remember what it was and I can't find it in my book now. *fail*

Monday was a bad day. I had my summer reading book test in English class. We were given 40 minutes to complete it. The teacher explained how we had to answer two of the six given questions about our books. I proceeded to write frantically. I completed two whole pages answering my two questions for Feed, and I was really proud when the teacher said we had eight minutes left. EIGHT minutes? To write answers to two MORE questions about Slaughterhouse-Five. I quickly scratched down some crappy answer before the teacher took the test away from me.
Then he started laughing. "Alex," he laughed, "oh, Alex, you're only supposed to answer ONE question per book!" And he walked away.
I'd written two GREAT answers for one book and one crappy for the other! ahhhhh -headpalm-

THEN I got in trouble because my french teacher decided that my shirt was too low-cut and my skirt too short and she sent a message to the dean and made me change. MY SCIENCE TEACHER WAS WEARING A MORE LOW-CUT SHIRT THAN ME! I WAS NOT INAPPROPRIATELY DRESSED! eeerrrrg.

Otherwise the week was okay. Ish.
I had auditions for the play (Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin). I thought I did well. I was really hoping to get in. It sounded great.
Cast list went up today.
I'm not  in it.
I didn't have much time to feel bad for myself though, because my friend who has been dying for this role hadn't gotten in either. And she wants to be an actress when she's older. So I had to hug her and comfort her as she cried. Whatever. Next time?
ALTHOUGH, there is one point in the play when Picasso visualises his painting, "les demoiselles d'avignon" and there is supposed to be some sort of image/projection of it placed on stage so the audiences sees what he is picturing. Chris, the awesome director of the show decided that he would get four girls to dress up in beige bodysuits and pretend to be the painting! And i get to be one of them! Recreate a more abstract version of this art! I'm excited for that, at least. It's like two seconds stage time, but still.

Auditions for the musical are on Monday. "The Music Man." I'm excited.

OH. One last very important thing: my super awesome Drama teacher has decided to start an A Capella group. She says we get to choose what songs we sing. Me and all my other drama-nerd friends have joineed and we plan to make this exactly like Glee Club! We're going to sing Don't Stop Believin' and Rehab and stuff. Maybe there will even be a bit of choreography, because the teacher running this is a great choreographeer as well.
So we're verrryyy excited for our Glee Club! =D

There were a lot more things I wanted to say, but I've talked a lot already (about rather boring things) and I'm still exhausted (thus the messy writing.)

Have a good friday!
