I've got to tell you something...whoa...amber is the color of your energy

Home early! Such a nice feeling.

I'm planning to nap before I go to school tonight for Mr. DHS.


Mark Medoff (Tony-award winning playwright for Children of a Lesser God...and writer of our Fall Play Stefanie Hero) came in to Company today to talk to us about writing plays (because we will be next semester)...for two periods. TWO STRAIGHT PERIODS. 90-ish minutes. Me and my attention deficit today were about ready to hope out of my chair and run straight into a wall. Oy, I could not sit still.

And then later I had a double-period APES class today too. AHHH!

The ADD-ridden youth of America cannot take this kind of pressure. *falls over*

So. I don't really have so much homework, besides the paper. So I'm going to go sleep now.

You're a good girl and that's what makes me trust you

My nap was fantastic. Truly. Yum.

Mr. DHS was funny as hell. God, some of those and utter fools! Runners up were Ben Levitt (Allie's boyfriend) and Greg Spero. Winners (they tied) were Judd Kiddie and Aron Rosenthal. Aron and I Senior Teach our Theatre 1,2 class together. And Judd's talent was amazing. He put together a Rubik's cube while being trapped in a box that he covered with paper to look like a Rubik's cube. Fucking hilarious. I'm still not sure how he knew the cube was done since it was probably pitch black in the box...but somethings are better remained a mystery.

Now I'm home. And as much as I'd like to just shower and go to bed, I should really write my STUNTS paper, and work on my holiday gifts for the friends. I have about 3 and a half of the 9 done...but I'm so busy for the rest of the week that I really should do them now. SO much trouble.

Last fell and you hit hard

Oh, and I got a letter from Indiana University today. I have been awarded the Faculty Award...a yearly scholarship of $4500. Sweet.

I will continue to get it (for 4 years) if I keep a 3.0 GPA. Good.

And I think I'm getting Mommy on my side. She's still not happy. She doesn't want to pay for anything more than $10000. And I don't blame her. That's a lot of money.

So I told her that I'd take out student loans on anything she and Daddy weren't willing to pay for. But that $4500 off will be nice. And it sure as hell beats the $1400 that Iowa would give me every year (only $5500 for all 4 years).

Cause no one's tried to give you what you need

I wrote my STUNTS paper. It's a bit crappy. And it's OVER TWICE as long as it should be. 4 and a half pages instead of 2. Whoops. But I had a lot to talk about...

Now, it's shower and bedtime. It's getting harder and harder to get out of bed in the mornings. *sigh*
