It's a leap of faith when you believe there's someone out there


I'm horrible!!!

Happy Birthday, Pixie!

Sorry I'm a day late, but I hope it was fabulous!!!


In other news. First real day of school done. Whew.

Feeling better about it, I suppose. Things weren't terrible.

First day of crew! Oh my god, am I hurting!! My back aches because we were cleaning the woodshop, which is trashed from construction and probably won't be in total working order until the end of the year. Little by little!

Then! We had to move and install seating risers. Those fuckers are heavy! I think I'm going to keel over. And tomorrow's going to be pain. Pure pain.

This might help me sleep well tonight though!


I had lots of emails in my box when I got home, though! Or, well...5. But they weren't junk!

And thanks to my lurker, Abby, who informed me that Bree Sharp has a new record out. Ooo! I was just talking with some friends about how after "David Ducovney" her career seemed to die. And now a new album. How exciting?


Won't be able to go to crew tomorrow.

And I'll have to leave to go to my sister's later. So, driving at night. *sigh*

Because the Senior Teachers have to decorate the Theatre board, so we are all going to Haley's house after school. Oh well.


Rehearsal starts Monday. I mentioned to Eric that I was going to try and pick up AWARE (again) and Earthworks as activities while continuing crew and rehearsals. He said it probably wouldn't be possible, especially if I'm SMADing (Stage Managing and Assistant Directing).

So I said that if I were to SMAD, that would definitely take priority and I would ditch the others.

He told me I should definitely sign up if interested.

AKA...I'm probably going to be Stage Managing the Fall Play. Woo!!!


So yes. Today was good.


OH!!! And Chorus trip!! We're going to New Orleans!! Granted it's no Caribbean cruise, or a trip to Europe. But it's better than Nashville! Or Toronto, for that matter. [:p to band!]


Also, I started reading Ishmael during my free periods (all 3 of them today). It's very good. I recommend to all.


Yeah. So it was an eventful day. And right now, I'm really thirsty, and a tad hungry too, so I may go shower and grab dinner before writing my English essay.

Oh yeah. My only homework tonight? Write a one-page personal essay (single or double spaced) about my room. AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Piece of cake.

    Michelle Branch, Leap of Faith (in head)

To her that ain't nothing, but to me it's everything

A few more things:

-My hands are so dry from all the dust and concrete powder in the woodshop that they are splitting open. Ouch! So dry, but lotion hurts the wounded skin!!

-I'm really liking my Outdoor Adventure class. It's such a random group of people, but I can basically get along with all of them. Today I talked with Ellie and Hillary.

-I still hate my English class...

-I adore APES. It seems like it's going to be a lot of fun. A bunch of work too, but all hands-on. It's exciting. And the class is about as close to a Social Studies course and as far from a Math course as possible. Score!

I'm showered. Feel clean and tired. Must write essay. Then maybe bed.

Mommy's making me a pizza for dinner. :)

    My song [aka "She Talks to Angels" - Black Crowes] head
Baby you're a big star now

Our love was comfortable and so broken in...

Gail: *swears she isn't listening to this song on repeat*
Gail: . . .
Gail: *lies*
Gail: ...okay. So maybe. Just once.
Gail: *cough*
Gail: . . .
Gail: FINE! Twice!!


So. I finished my English essay. One full page, single spaced. It's about my room. Biggest pile of unpolished shit ever. But that's what Weatherby wants...

And I don't know what I'll do now. Maybe read?

Hmmm...Blonde or Ishmael?

Or just hang around online? Whatever.

Words can't describe my love for this song. Truly.

    Comfortable - John Mayer
Baby you're a big star now

I'm faking, I'm aching, mistaking lust for love

Love this song.

Thanks that was fun, don't forget, no regrets
Except maybe one, made a deal not to feel
God, that's dumb

Everybody knows the deal fell through
I was hoping I could just blame you
When was is that I became so soft?

Read more of Ishmael. A lot more. At this rate, I'll be finished in a couple days. But my weekend might be pretty packed, so we'll have to see.

And I was raving about it to Jason, who read it last year and since he saw that I bought it for APES, has started rereading it. We've made plans to have a big discussion on this, and politics and religion.

I'm so incredibly excited.

I can't remember the last time I liked a book this much. The last time a book made me feel excited. Seriously fantastic.

Read it!
