6 Spellers// Spell.

Busy busy [11 Jan 2005|10:17pm]
My my, today's been busy. I had P.E., but we were doing volleyball so it wasn't too bad. French I had a quiz, but it was super easy. I had a test in Math, and that kinda sucked, but then I had a Study Hall. I spent the entire 70 minutes taking notes on Modern Theatre for Theatre Arts - my plan was to cover all the people mentioned, then places, vocab, etc. I spent all 70 minutes and 4 1/2 pages writing just about people! It was so strange.

Then I went to this stress-buster thing. Because of exams, the faculty decided we needed to de-stress, so we had a Fun and Games section and a Body, Soul and Mind thing. You had to take one of each. There was dodgeball, massages, manicures, board games, poetry, etc. Today was my Body, Soul and Mind thing. I had made a few of my friends sign up for Improv Theatre with me - it was strange, since I was the only actual 'theatre' person who chose it. But I got down to the Green Room where we were supposed to have it, and neither Susong, Anderson or Beej had ever agreed to do that. So we ended up helping my Theatre Arts teacher prepare for the One Acts tonight. I put up signed posters of Broadway shows (which was a holy experience for me, because the original cast had signed them...I may have fainted from happiness) in the hallway.

Two of my friends came over to get ready for the One Acts - the theatre ensemble of juniors and seniors in my school put on a bunch of one-act plays in the spring. Anyone in Theatre Arts (myself included) is required to not only see the show, but write a paper on it. My friends and I were planning on getting homework done before going, but we didn't feel like it so we watched Dogma instead. Great movie. The One Acts were really, really good - I'm looking forward to writing my paper. My outline, so far, is over three pages long. Ugh.

So that was my day. And that's why I haven't been able to get on here until 10 at night.

Woah... [10 Jan 2005|05:05pm]
Okay, so I did not know this, but Maria told me today during SAT that Idina apparently broke her ribs while perfoming on the 8th, and so she couldn't perform yesterday, for her last performance ever. But she came back and did the very last scene...in a red tracksuit. Odd, eh? You'd think she'd at least pick green. But anyway, that made me very sad and I almost started sobbing (but not really). Well, at least she went out with a bang...

The One Acts are tomorrow. Jackie, Andrea and Claire are coming over before...we're gonna study! Yay. And I can't go on Wednesday too, like I planned, 'cause I'm gonna be with my dad. Blagh.

And I get to do the Improv Theatre 'cause Tanaira decided to sign up too! Yay! *dances* For a second I thought I'd be stuck with Board Games...

Idina... [09 Jan 2005|11:18pm]
Just wanted to make a special little post in honor of our love, Idina Menzel. Today was her last day of being Wicked. For over a year she has ben our Wicked Witch of the West, our little Green Girl of Oz, and our Elphie. I can say for a fact that she has impacted so many people because of what she's done and who she's portrayed. And as cheesy as it is, I believe it to be imperative...


I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you..
Because I knew you...
I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore...

Like a comet pulled/Like a ship blown
From orbit as it/Off it's mooring
Passes a sun, like/By a wind off the
A stream that meets/Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way/Dropped by a
Through the wood/Bird in the wood

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better...

And because I knew you...
Because I knew you...
Because I knew you...

I have been changed for good.

Banner thingies! [09 Jan 2005|07:24pm]
My friend made these cool guys for me; she's gotta hot program on her computer that makes pretty banner thingies. Love them! (let's see if they work..)













(You gotta highlight the last one 'cause it's wonky...it'll work fine if it's against a dark background, it just doesn't work well on my LJ)

I'll be editing this if I need to use some other coding thing. But I'm gonna see if she can make me more; you're welcome to use them, but mention me, eh? ^_^

Question for whoever feels like answering: Is the field trip during Spring Break include BKLYN or DRS? 'Cause in his last e-mail Susong said we were seeing DRS, but that's contrary to what he said before. Alex is confused and doesn't know what to do.



(Either way, she is going. ^_^)

La... [07 Jan 2005|02:31pm]
La. So I had the Theatre Arts test today - some parts were easier than I thought, some were harder. I got an 87, which is good considering, but I had hoped for a 95. It's just because of one stupid section. But this one girl (I won't say who...) was being very irksome. I won't say anymore because it's back to talk behind backs, but she was not helping my morning. And apparently the headaches I've been having are stress headaches....AH! I don't like that! GO AWAY, EXAMS!
Spell.

School continues... [06 Jan 2005|05:20pm]
Well, Exegesis is over, which is HAPPY! I feel pretty confident about my presentation, but I know my paper is worth shit. Oh well.

But now I've got a Theatre Arts test to study for. Ugh. It never ends! I really wish Theatre Arts was on Monday instead of tomorrow, so I'd actually have time to study. And now my mom wants to go out tonight and get a duvet cover with me. I have no time! But if I don't go, she'll get all pissy. It's so very annoying.


...And now I must go study.

*sick* [03 Jan 2005|11:00pm]
I think I might be sick. My head hurts like shit and behind my eye actually stings, and my stomach keeps having these moments of ickyness. Not good, considering my stepdad had a stomach virus for the past week. Blargh...

[01 Jan 2005|07:14pm]
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Well, it's been a pretty awesome year, I have to say. I hope y'all can say the same. As of now, my resolutions include breathing and blinking, but hopefully I'll get more creative after some sleep.

Took us about 10 hours to drive home, 7 of which I was sleeping. Yay.

I think I'm going deaf. Seriously. I've been listening to Rent for the past, oh, 48 hours, and now my left ear is ringing. Again: Yay. But I have been listening to Rent, so that makes me happy. La Vie Boheme is now officially my second favorite song. The first is the love of my life, By My Side from Godspell. Not only is it a truly beautiful song, but I sang it when I performed in Godspell. ^_^ Shibby, eh?

I don't know if anyone around here's heard of Gregory Maguire - he's a writer, known for Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Mirror, Mirror, and Lost mainly. Well, Wicked is now the Broadway musical that resparked my interest in musical theatre; I made a point of reading Wicked, and was given Mirror, Mirror last Christmas. Well, this past Christmas I was given Confessions and Lost. I've finished Confessions; it was a pretty great book. And now I'm smack in the middle of Lost. It's interesting - all the books but Lost are fairy tales rewritten from a different perspective, and much more in depth. Wicked is about the lives of the Witches of Oz; Mirror, Mirror is about Snow White, and Confessions is the story of Cinderella from the eyes of one of the stepsisters. They're very interesting books - I highly recommend them.

Wow...I've been babbling, apparently. Pardon me, I seem to last lost track of sleep. But I've got a large appetite for insomnia right now, so I think I'll be fine. ^_^ Nighty night.
Spell.

Au revoir... [28 Dec 2004|10:58am]
Well, I'm off. My dad's coming to pick me up in about 20 minutes, and we're going up to New Hampshire for New Years. I've got cousins up there, and we always try to go see them for New Years since we don't really see them any other time. I'll be coming back on the 1st, since I have school on th 3rd. Ugh. I have a paper to write for English, and a paper to rewrite (yes, he wants us to literally rewrite it) for Theatre Arts. And guess what? I forgot the paper at school that has his corrections on it. So I have to try and remember what he said. How. Fun. And I think I have Theatre Arts first thing Monday.

Plus I have to finish the Jacques-in-the-box project for French. But that's fun, so I'm not dreading it. And I can finish it on Sunday when we get back. We had to research a Jacques (I chose Jacques Cartier, the explorer), answer some questions and write some sentences in French, and then....make a Jacques-in-the-box! Literally. I made the box out of pink post-it notes stuck together. Then I'm gonna get a small slinky, tape it to the bottom, and tape a picture of Cartier to it. Voila! Jacques-in-the-box! ^_^

And I have to admit, I am obsessed with my new Rent CD. I saw Rent on the 21st, and got the soundtrack for Christmas, and I cannot stop listening to it! If you don't know what Rent is, find out. ^_^ If you do, snaps for you. I wanna be Angel. If ever I do Rent at a community theatre or something, I am going to insist on being Angel. Or Maureen. Or Joanne. Or the Seasons of Love soloist.

Or anyone, really. ^_^

Well, I'll see you in the New Year! *hugs and kisses*
