Which Disney Princess Are You?

You are Belle. You are strong, deep, and you are not a slave to petty superficial things. You are independent and allow yourself to see inner beauty without sacrificing your values. You are almost too good of a person.

Which Female Action Hero Are You?

You are Princess Leia. You are down-to-earth and stick to a rigid sense of ethics. Nerds may lust over you, but everyone looks to you for your grounded logic and intellect.

What Kind of Guy Will You Fall For?

You would fall part for the bad boy. Get a good lawyer, because you will fall for someone from the wrong side of the tracks with charm, looks, and all the moves down pat. Look for your future guy in bars, clubs, and on the dancefloor--he's the shirtless one with the tattoos.
You would fall part for the geek. If you're looking for love, consider spending a little more time studying up in the library. To you, there's nothing more attractive than intelligence, shyness, and kindness; your future love may have four eyes and zero social skills, but he'll make up for it in brains and heart.

Lol.

Thesfest was awesome! We won 3 out of 13 events and just in general had a really good time. The last play we saw was The Visit, which I highly recommend. I have to go now, but I'll talk a bit more about it later.

started tonight.

I love it! It's so low-key, and I get to work with dogs, and clean, and be by myself, and I'm so excited! Yay!

I'm also exhausted. Tomorrow's thesfest, so I probably won't post again until I get back. see you sunday!

ugh. Sooooo tired.

TP'd the girls going to stte last night--got like 4 hours of sleep. It was a lot of fun (I loved it! I felt like Santa, only more awesome!) Not feeling well on top of it.

Opening night was tonight--it went pretty well. I got flowers! *happy*

NaNoWriMo is going well--right now I'm a little behind, but not like I was last year. Not to mention that I've got some momentum going. I feel pretty good about the story, actually.

And I got a job! At the vet center I applied to last week! I start on Thursday!

Yay!

*snore*

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favorite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

This definitely isn't everything, but...it's something.

Rurouni Kenshin, Gokusen, Original )

Was cast as the part of Justina in the play. I'm pretty happy with it, even though I wanted Elisenda. The only problem I have with it is who is actually playing Elisenda--I'd pick almost ANYONE in drama over her, including several guys. She is SUCH a bitch. *sigh* But I'll deal with it. It's mostly set in stone anyway, so that's that.

play audition tonight. It went okay, a little better than okay, I guess, but not perfectly. I was pretty happy though.

I really want to get a big part this year; I don't want to be either of the leads but I do want to be their mother. I actually have a chance, for once. XD Being a senior and all.

Callbacks are tomorrow, so I'm crossing my fingers.

In other news, I finally finished the oneshot! YES! So now, I'm editing, and then I'll post it here, and then I'll edit some more, and then it goes to FFN.

I deleted "One Taco Short of a Combination Plate" because it was a piece of crap. It was a TON of fun to write, but, like the Finding NemoRK crossover (In which Kenshin, a single dad, has a fight with his son, who then promptly gets kidnapped, and so to find him he teams up with an amnesiac shihandai who's been kicked out of her dojo, a bunch of nomad rebels (two with spiky hair), and a chain-smoking policeman and his two sidekicks who refuse to use a sword to save him), and the three thousand words of nothing but Kamatari and Misao talking, it doesn't deserve to be online.

It was fun, though.

Swimming was okay tonight, but yesterday it was BRUTAL. My thighs are unbleievably sore. *sigh* Moving, let alone walking, kicking, or getting out of the pool, is a huge effort. As soon as I post I'm going to a hot shower, which I may never come out of.

And yes, I ended a sentence with a preposition. I'm in too much pain to care.

Please, please, please do [livejournal.com profile] spook_me! This is a Halloween spooky stories challenge. Signups start today, at the website, so please check it out! I did it last year and it was fun. XP

School started today...I already have a crapload of homework, so online may be GOOONE if I want to survive senior year. 169 days left, give or take a few. *agony*

I realized something recently. I like spending time with my dad. With Maman, we talk all the time, but with Dad, we don't talk as much, though we do talk. I like talking to Dad, for the most part. We think alike, and it's a lot of fun. Yesterday we went to lunch and then watched 300, which we both really enjoyed, despite the gratuitous sex scene in which Leonidas has a crapload of stamina. But we had a lot of fun. I love hanging out with Dad; I want to do it more often. On the plus side, he might come to Rome with the Latin trip, which would be great fun. I'm so excited for this year, despite the massive class attack. It will be a good year, I think.

They play, as I said I would talk about it, is A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings, based on the story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's going to be really cool, I think. I'm excited for that, too.

Time trials are over. My goal this swim season is to lose weight. I am SOOOO fat.

You Are Indigo

Of all the shades of blue, you are the most funky, unique, and independent.
Expressing yourself and taking a leap of faith has always been easy for you.


Thespian retreat yesterday. It was a blast. Yay! More later, maybe.

Tonoght at play practice I had a huge fight with a girl I've known since seventh grade. I've never really liked her, though most of the time I've been mildly friendly towards her, even though I think she's a self-righteous kind of girl and she dresses far too risque for her size--it's not that she's fat, but she's tall and has some meat on her and is really sort of pretty, but...she shouldn't be wearing skirts that short. So, more like she needs to stop deluding herself and wear a size bigger.

But I digress. My problem with her is not her fashion sense. It's the fact that she's a self-rightwous bitch. But she's friends with a lot of my friends, so I was always friendly with her anyway.

But tonight we had a huge fight--it's been building up, and I've always just kind of rolled my eyes when she would tell me to shut up in US history or whatever--getting angry over it takes to much energy and makes me the bad person (though sometimes I did interrupt her because I'm a little self-righteous too, sometimes, and I thought she didn't know what she was talking about--she's not the only one at fault)--and...thought the amount of emotion it took was huge and if one of my other friends hadn't been there I'd have backhanded her...so I was in tears after I left (Thank God I didn't cry in front of her).

But now...and even after I stopped crying, I feel really liberated. I don't have to be nice to her anymore, and I don't feel bad about not really forgiving her or anything. During our arguement, she cited being sick and on her period as a "Don't fuck with me" kind of thing, and I told her I didn't give a flying fuck because your period comes once a fucking month and no one else gets a break when they're sick, so deal with it (which is totally true--I'm never going to back down from that). But anyway, I don't feel bad about it, and she was avoiding me but I'm definitely not caring, and I'm serious. I don't care. I didn't skirt to the other side of the hall when I walked past her, I didn't leave the room just after I walked in because she was there, and apparently a lot of our mutual friends in drama were kind of expecting it, because they're okay with it. Even her best friend, who, oddly enough, I really trust, was cool with it, and understood my point of view.

So I feel happier than I have in a long time. Because, I think, now I don't have to pretend. And that's very, very good.

In other news, it wonderfully rained all day today and I'm exhausted because of 6-7 hour play practices each night, but whatev. It's almost over, and I like drama anyway.

Play practice is URGH. And while I have internet connection at these 6 hour wonders, the school's wireless has blocks on it. *sigh*

And when I'm not at play practice or doing homework...I'm watching Gokusen.

The J-dorama. Shut up. But no, it's really great because it's so funny. And you totally know how it'll end, and the show's perfectly okay with that. It doesn't take itself seriously, which I love. And Shin is FUCKING HOT. Seriously. Right now I'm watching the Graduation special, but I'll finishe it in the morning because I'm tired now.

So...now I definitely ship Shin/Yankumi. Because it's fun. And Shinohara is definitely gay. I've decided this.

Last night it rained really, really hard. GB and I went out and played in it for like 20 minutes--we were soaked to the bone, but it was SO MUCH FUN. I'll be playing in the rain until I'm 90.

I'm going to bed now.

Night.

I'm the understudy for the Nurse in R&J.

It makes me feel good, because even though a lot of seniors and juniors like myself did the part well in callback, our director--who did IHSSA--trusted me to do the best as an understudy. The thing is, the girl playing the Nurse is a tad flighty, so I might actually have to...do it, you know? But even though it's TONS of work, and with my job at Dad's place and AP exams coming up I'm already beginning to feel swampoed, but I'm still honored. It feels pretty damn good.

:)

And I got a 100 on the CW2 sotry I wasn't expecting to do well on. :) That makes me feel good too.

Good thing #1: I made callbacks.

Good thing #2: Moises Kaufman--author of the Laramie Project--came to speak today.

He was fantastic. Some of the things he said--I wrote down some of them, but I don't have my book with me at the moment. I just wanted a quick post. I'll edit later. But they were amazing. He was funny, poignant, involved the audience, well-spoken, friendly...and every word that came out of his mouth was just perfect. He was so eloquent, and he has so smart. He knew what he was talking about, but he still let us dictate the discussion. I loved it.

What's more, at the beginning he asked us how we felt about the play, how the controversy affected us, why we thought it did. I raised my hand at one point and offered a 15-20 second blurb about how we don't like what we don't understand, how we're afraid of what's different. Lots of other people spoke--no one touched that topic, we were onto other things--but I thought they spoke much better than I did. However, an hour later, when he signed my play poster, he told me, "You're a writer."

I thought he'd seen me writing or something, so I kind of blushed, and nodded, and thanked him, and then he said, "When you spoke, you were so eloquent and right away, I thought, 'she's a writer.'"

The blush was going full-on by then, and I said, "Thank you, I actually want to be that when I grew up."

And he said, "You are. A writer. And I needed to make sure you knew that."

Well, I hadn't thought I could turn any redder, and I thanked him again, profusely, and that was that.

But it made me feel soooooooooo good. I'm not an eloquent speaker at best; I'm rarely an eloquent writer, but I love to do it, you know that. And that was the nicest compliment I think I've ever gotten. So right now, I feel so unbelievably good.

MOISES KAUFMAN TOLD ME I WAS A WRITER! EEE!!

I can't stop grinning.

this feeling is so odd...I like it, but it's odd.

Just got back from The Rat Pack: Live from the Sands at the Civic Center. Basically it recreates a night with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Dean Martin from when they had a show at the Sands in Vegas.

Oh.

My.

Stars.

The man playing Frank--Chris Mann--sounded and acted exactly like the real thing. By the end you couldn't belieive it wasn't Frank. It was really, really eerie, in an awesome way.

I'm not as familiar with Sammy Davis, Jr., but my parents say his actor was even closer to Davis than Mann was to Frank, which is terrifying. The guy playing Dean Martin didn't sound like Martin as much as the others sounded like their counterparts, but he had his actions down pat. That was eerie, too.

But it was excellent. Really excellent. I had a great time.
