I'm in Sandusky. I like the new place a lot... my parents have this amazing view of Lake Erie and Cedar Point out of their bedroom window. There's also a balcony and the bedrooms are huge so it's pretty cool. The backyard to this complex goes right into the lake. We went down there but it was hella windy so we didn't stay long.

Kitty had a pretty tough car ride up here. She meowed and meowed until she came and sat on MY lap, when she stopped meowing almost completely. It's because I am the cat whisperer. We tried to drug her with catnip before we left Grandma's... and it worked for a little while... but once the Cat Taxi came along, she sobered up pretty quickly.

Allison, you HAVE to go to that NYC workshop thing tomorrow. DOOOOOOOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTT. I mean, do you NEED any other reason than because *I* am going?? :)

Please, all. I am in love with the song "Flowers in the Window" by Travis. If any one has this song on their computer, will you please send it to me? Thanks. :)

I had the best workout ever last night until I got really sick and had to stop. It was weird. I was RUNNING (I usually jog) and wasn't even tired, then I used the elliptical... and then I felt really sick all of a sudden at .97 mile and had to get off to go throw up. It was so sudden. I couldn't believe how much energy I had and then I threw up. I was FINE after that, but it was so weird.

I'm going to have to work Saturday-Monday, which sucks, but I don't have too much time left at the OG so I guess I can deal with it.

I talked to Christy today since she's going to LA tomorrow. I gave her some "cool place" tips.... because I am COOL. MUCH cooler than some other people who still DO live there and may remember the cool places better than I do....

First off, I need to say a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Lave. She's the coolest.

I saw "Winter's Tale" again last night from one of the best seats possible. I liked it even better this time. I guess you could say that I ENJOYED act 1, rather than just "put up with" act 1. God, we have some really great actors at this school.

I went to work today. It was.... fine. I also turned in my TWO WEEKS NOTICE!! I mean, the last day we can stay in the apartment is the 13th, and I obviously don't want to work the night before I have to move, so I kind of had to. I talked to 3 of my managers to see if we could work something out for this summer, but it's just going to be impossible with the rehearsal schedule for Porthouse. They said I should probably be able to come back in the fall as a host (I won't have the availability for a server) without a problem if I want to, which is good. We'll have to see if I CAN.

I am NOT going to sleep through all my classes tomorrow. I won't do it.

Tomorrow night I am going with my mom and Jen to take kitty up to her new home in Huron and finally getting to see my parent's new place. I'm excited. We're totally having a slumber party. I'm coming back in time for that NYC workshop thing on Friday, though.

And finally, although these are not as good as the ones Autumn took on Haven's camera, some pictures from Sunday at the Interbelt.


"La Vie Boheme"

Patrick, Haven and Tim in "La Vie Boheme"

Bryan, Brooke and Jessie in "La Vie Boheme"

Kelly singing "I Can't Do it Alone" from Chicago

The quality kind of sucks on this picture, but I really liked the song ("Mama I'm a Big Girl Now") and the girls who sang it :)

Me and Brett, who was about to touch-a touch-a touch me (I was too red from the burn to do the classic bra and slip, so I wore some kind of negligee instead)


Haven singing "Out Tonight." I told her she was a "natural born stripper."

This is just ridiculous (John as Angel from Rent)

And finally, the amazing Allison Nacht singing "The Wizard and I."

Tuesday, April 25, 2006

Last night I went to see Vincent's pseudo-Inside the Actor's Studio which was funny is a weird way. ie, I laughed at the reactions John had. Although, I did enjoy the poetry he wrote. I usually hate poetry, too.

After that Ryan Washabaugh and I went on an adventure to visit Alana in Youngstown (she was stopping there for the night on her "Stuart Little" tour). It was so nice to see her. It was also really fun to hang out for such a long time with Ryan. We went to the Waffle House and played some jukebox songs about hash browns and stuff.... it was fun. I was very happy to step away from the norm for a couple of minutes.

And then I slept until 2pm. I definitely didn't want to do this... I missed Theatre History. I woke up and practically had a panic attack because I was so mad. I don't even know how it happened. I slept through 3 alarms, 2 phone calls and a text message. I NEVER do that. I must have really needed sleep.

After Musicale I went with Chris and Autumn to eat and THEN, in the computer lab, we decided that next Friday we are renting a KSU 15 passenger van and driving to the nearest Sonic Burger, which is in Athens, Ohio. As Dix Huit knows (since I made us stop at one in Oklahoma), I love Sonic Burger and am fascinated by its mysterious nature. We have 3 spots still open for our trip.... WHO WILL MAKE THE CUT!?!?!?!?

I'm going to see Winter's Tale again tonight. I want to see it from a non-ushering seat so I can actually SEE what is happening... and I need to go do that like... soon. So... bye.

Monday, April 24, 2006

please note: I was not fishing for compliments when I said "they make me feel bad about myself every day." In MY mind it was kind of a throw away comment... but thanks to those who HAVE said something because you helped take away the edge from the bad dream I had last night and made my day that much better. :)
I feel like so much has happened since I was able to use the internet last. To me... at least. I don't know about everyone else.

Ok... so I guess I'm lying. Especially since on Friday after I went to work all I COULD do was lay around my apartment in my underwear because wearing regular clothes hurt too much. I felt better on Saturday, though, so it was worth it.

I ushered and then watched "A Winter's Tale" on Saturday night. Despite what the cast had been saying, I really liked the show. Yes, the first "non-Shakespeare" act was kind of... slow.... but I mean, everyone did a VERY good job. Ernie, Caleb and Ryan were HYSTERICAL and I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't help but laugh when Cleric got killed by the bear. I was trying so hard not to that my eyes were watering. The costumes were... unbelievable. Everyone looked just beautiful. After the show was the little party where they had cookies and stuff... and what I thought was milk actually turned out to be cream. I don't know why I thought they would have milk at a fancy party. Probably because it's like I'm 5 years old half the time. Anyway, I drank it, and then Allison was like "put some coffee in that cream!" and there wasn't any coffee left!!! Oh, Alisa...

After that I went to the cast party for a LONG time and then I went to bed. At 5am.

Yesterday after work we had a quick rehearsal for the AIDS benefit and then we went there at 10:30 to get ready. It ended up being really great! We made over $330 and a lot of people seemed to really like the show. Allison, Haven and Kayce were especially amazing. I'll have pictures if Autumn posts the ones she took on facebook... which she probably will at some point. The girls in my major are so beautiful that I feel bad about myself EVERY DAY.

Today I have to work... and I hate it. Always and forever.

Friday, April 21, 2006

My body is ON FIRE. Damn this fair skin!

It'll turn into a tan eventually. But man... it sucks soooo bad right now.

I was trying to get my coworkers to come to the AIDS benefit on Sunday without seeming like I was a stripper... which was proving very difficult. Work was so stupid today. I was in smoking, and since CLOTHES alone hurt, of course moving hurts, so being in the section furthest away from dish was just.... a bad time. Plus, I didn't make like any money and I only work lunches ever anymore so... I hate it. Hopefully I won't have to work there much longer, though.... and hopefully the sunburn stops hurting.

I talked to Alison a little today. She had a couple of friends from BG die in a plane crash over Indiana last night. I felt really bad. I guess they were really close with John Glann, too... I think they all went to Indiana University together for a while or something.

TK wrote Bryan a note about "Violet" and referred to me as "Alyssa." Jeez. I don't think I can take it. It'd be one thing if I didn't know her that well or something.... but really? Five years, my adviser, I've been in 4 of her shows and she doesn't know how to spell my name? It's so easy! It's JUST like it sounds! A Lisa. One Lisa. Sigh....

I've been used to it since the first day of kindergarten... but it still bothers me.

Ok, it's about time I rubbed aloe lotion all over my body and cried over the pain I caused myself.

Thursday, April 20, 2006

Hahahahaha!!! THIS is why you should have seen "Violet"!

What is it with me and appearing in my underwear in plays?
I've been thinking a lot about my life and myself the last couple of days, in part because we just read "A Doll's House" by Ibsen and also because I watched the last episode of Sex and the City with the commentary on (I really wanted to find out the name of the music playing when she finds her Carrie necklace). It's been kind of... awful. Actually. I don't NEED to say any more if you've read "A Doll's House" or watched the last episode of "Sex and the City" and you can understand where I am going with this... and I probably SHOULDN'T say more regardless of your knowledge of these things... but I probably will. But not right now... I think I need to gather my thoughts a little more first. I've been writing a lot at night in my book (as internet access is a thing of the past in my life) and it's helpful and terrible at the same time.

I didn't think "Violet" was the best production in the world. There were a lot of parts that I REALLY hated... but from the Violet vs. Preacher scene on, I was really... into it. And yesterday especially for some reason. I mean, I was just a mess. I knew that this show got to showcase a lot of stuff that I normally never get to show at Kent, which I liked... there is something about watching someone you really admire stand up for YOU. Not for the company or the show, but for you. I don't know if I've ever experienced that kind of emotion before. I just felt like I was FINALLY recognized here. I keep saying how I am painfully aware that this might be the only leading role I have at Kent (although I hope not... because I really like "Hair"), so I'm glad that I was able to do something I really don't have the chance to do a lot.

And Bryan, forward me that email. :)

The glands on one side of my neck are swollen. I hate it. I don't know why.

I DID start getting a bruise on my cheek yesterday, so I decided, since I wanted to anyway, to use the coupon I had and go tanning to help make it less obvious... and man, I am so burned. I was only in for FIVE MINUTES, too. I'm gonna have to go today to do my sides... I knew this was going to happen, but it is going to SUCK until I have a base. My poor skin...

I also dyed my hair last night. It didn't quite have the desired effect as it was supposed to. I mean, it was supposed to be RED.... not redly tinted. I like it ok, and I'm actually kind of glad because this will clearly last no longer than a week, so when I dye it for real I know I'll like it.. but still. I'm kind of pissed about it.

Oh... and this is great. So, as you all know "The Chronicles of Narnia" are my favorite thing. Just... period. So, I rented the movie last night and what should the first preview be for.... but THE TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION DVD OF "THE LITTLE MERMAID"!!!!!!!!!!! I was so exicted that I cried. I mean, it wasn't supposed to come out until 2008... but it's coming out THIS YEAR, baby! And not just this year, but in OCTOBER, aka MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!!!!! AND it's less than 6 months away!!!!!!!!!! I am just so exicted and thrilled. What a great surprise. :)

Wednesday, April 19, 2006

The show is over. I think it went okay. I got hit for real today by Dan and it hurt so bad! I'm afraid I'm going to have a big bruise on my cheek. Most of my friends were there today which was nice. I like it when I know people in the audience.

So, my audition yesterday went really well. REALLY well... she said "We'll have callbacks sometime in the next month," which could be... you know... anytime. But the director seemed to like me and the music director REALLY liked me, and I was last, which I always like... so hopefully everything goes well and I get called back and the callbacks go well and I get cast because that would be amazing.

Yesterday I was talking to Ben outside his Winter's Tale rehearsal and Otto walked by in his bear pants... and I said something along the lines of (or what I WOULD say, now, if it were a perfect world) "He should exercise his rights of the Second Amendment." Now, ok, this is not funny at all because
A. You probably weren't standing right there
B. You don't know why Otto would be in bear pants and
C. You may or may not know what the Second Amendment IS...

But, trust me, it was EXTREMELY funny. And yes, I did steal it from a t-shirt. But it worked so well!!

And buy me that t-shirt.

I don't know what I am going to do now that my show is over. I have been in rehearsal for SOMETHING almost every day this year. Now I have two months of... nothing... with some hopeful callbacks in there somewhere. Oh. Well, there is the AIDS benefit but after THAT... I'm gonna be at Family Video A LOT.

(as if I'm not there a lot as it is...)

Oh. And my voice was fine last night despite all the worrying I did. :)

Tuesday, April 18, 2006

Today is a scary, scary day. I have to sing in studio, I have to do the show and then I have to audition for L5Y right after the show... and all these things are going to happen in the span of about 5 hours. That is going to be a LOT to take vocally. I mean, it'd be one thing if it was ITW... but it's Violet... and I sing almost every song. I suppose if I can do the show two times in a row as I did on Sunday I should be fine... but it's still scary.

And, as we all know, I NEED to get cast in this show so my audition has to be AMAZING... so I'm sure you can see how this is a scary thing.

Anyway, the show went well last night. I mean, as good as it's going to be, I guess. I have a pretty intense 5 minutes toward the end.... A couple people IM'd Cleric to tell me that I did a great job. You know... because "Loony Lagomorph" and "Slceostyle" are such similar screen names.

Plus, we look so much alike

I mean, yeah... I can definitely see it.

I had a HORRIBLE dream last night. The end.

I am in a different world today. I think it's the whole "worried about keeping myself vocally decent" thing. I just have so much to SING in such a short amount of time. I'll be fine... I mean, I HAVE to be, and it's not like I've ever had problems before, but there's a first time for everything, I guess. But NO! There won't be a first time for that TODAY!!!!

So, on Sunday at like midnight, I am performing in this Equity Fights AIDS benefit at the Interbelt (along with many of my friends) and you should go. I'll definitely be singing "Touch Me" and will be getting molested which is apparently what the people like to see so.... you know. Go see it. It's a good cause, anyway. Only people who like AIDS aren't going to be there....

Here's a couple more pictures to make this post less boring:

Violet and the Old Lady singing on the bus

Me as Jack's Mom and Griffin as the Steward. God did I hate my costume.

Monday, April 17, 2006

So, Easter was good. My mom made a ton of cookies.

Last night we ran the show twice. We cut a ton out and are making MORE cuts tonight (which I am kind of worried about just because.... we're performing tonight) but we have to, so... we have to. I can't believe that I sang that whole show twice with only a half hour break between. I am definitely feeling THAT today. I'll have to drink some honey tea or something. We were there until 1am. It kind of sucked.

I did get out of work today which is great because I probably would have never made it to my show on time if I would have had to stay.

My parents are moving tomorrow. That's exciting. Everything changes so much anymore...

Ok, I need my tea and to shower and get ready and everything. Woo.

Saturday, April 15, 2006

Last night I went to a party. It was fun. This morning I woke up at 6-something am, thought I was late for rehearsal at 9, turned off my alarm, got out of bed and got half dressed, then realized it wasn't even 7am yet and went back to sleep. It was a good thing I got a phone call at 9:15 otherwise who knows how late I would have been to rehearsal. I mean, I was still half an hour late, but I would have been much later.

Sometimes I am surprised my voice can last this whole show. My "southern accent" definitely does NOT last the whole show.

I have to work at 3 and I really wish I didn't. I would ask to be an extra but this month seems to be going waaaaay too fast and I need money. I hate that.

I think I am going to have to quit the OG relatively soon. I mean, I knew I would when school starts because I won't have the availability they require but I may need to... in May. Whenever I leave my apartment before Porthouse starts. I was so mad at work yesterday because it was 4pm when my last table left and I didn't get sat again, but they wouldn't let me leave until 5pm. I could have actually made it to rehearsal on time yesterday, but no... I had to stand around doing nothing for an hour. I really hate it there.

I might not get to update tomorrow because of Easter and my lack of internet in my room, so if I can't until Monday, here are three things:
1. Go see "Violet" if you want 6pm on Monday and Tuesday, noon on Wednesday (call or email me if you need more info)
2. Happy Birthday Allison Nacht!!!!!!!
3. Happy Easter

Cookies will be allowed back in my life very soon...

Thursday, April 13, 2006

My "Violet" bio. Because I like it.

Alisa is very happy to be playing the title role in this
production of "Violet." Last seen as Jack's Mom in "Into the Woods"
she feels it necessary to clear up the very disturbing relationship
between herself and John Moauro. She has played his lover, his mother
and now, once again, his lover. Oedipus had nothing on us. A self-
proclaimed "mass transportation fanatic" she also enjoys reading
children's literature, kitties and cinnamon graham crackers covered in
chocolate ice cream. Alisa is filled with dismay over the fact
that she and Ryan Washabaugh have never been in a show together. This
summer she'll be having the time of her life at Porthouse Theatre
where she'll be rounding out her "God Musicals" by appearing in "Jesus
Christ Superstar."

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

It's so lovely outside. I mean... cloudy and rainy but still lovely. I am really looking forward to school being over and being able to buy a blender or something. Yes, surprisingly enough, buying a blender and school being out for summer DO go hand in hand.

I feel really skinny today and I thought to myself "WHY did you put on make up and look so adorable if you were only going to go to the eagle's landing computer lab where no one will see you?" I don't know, Alisa... I just don't know.

I am having faux-Easter dinner tonight at Grandma's! Woooo!

Tuesday, April 11, 2006

ARGH! They changed the "Last Five Years" audition date but didn't ever post it on neohpal or on their website... so how was anyone to KNOW this?? So NOW I have to pull some major strings and cash in all my EvB/Weathervane favors to see if they can help me out... because I definitely CANNOT make it to the date they changed them to. This sucks... boo. I hope I can do it. I did say I'd do anything to be in the show... I guess I'm gonna have to prove it.
I am so nervous right now. My stomach is all... in knots.

We got our theatre history tests back. I had, by that point, convinced myself that I failed it so that I couldn't be disappointed. I got a C, though, which is good, since I passed and it's a DECENT grade and I don't have to retake the test... but I'm really unhappy with my work on it. I was unhappy from the moment I handed it in... although I got good scores on both essays she wrote "Pretty superficial analysis of the two plays" after my first one. I mean... I KNOW... I just had nothing left when I took that test. It was like I was dead or something. I could barely read the questions because I was so tired. I feel BAD for letting her down with a C. I'm glad I care about school again.

Sigh.... Trent from PITNB got his hair cut at Rudy's. That's where *I* used to get my hair cut. :( I loved Rudy's. Sometimes I think about buying a plane ticket to LA just so I can get my hair cut there. I obviously won't, because I don't have ANY money let alone money to do something ridiculous like that... but I definitely miss it. He was also thinking about living in the Archstone complex... where *I* used to live!!!! Ahhhhh! I feel like I might have to stop reading the site since it is making me so... homesick.

Yeah, I said it. :(

Violet's going a little better. I totally am "perfecting" my little Baltimore Catechism prop. Oh yeah... it's gonna be great.

My audition is tonight. Good luck, Alisa.

Monday, April 10, 2006

I finally saw "Brokeback Mountain" last night. I was a little too stunned to cry at the ending. I kind of didn't like it as much as.... everyone else. BUT, let me explain. I just hate Cowboys. I don't hate the gays, but cowboys... yeah, I hate them. So, it's hard to like a movie about something you hate (I also hate moves/books about wolves).

Another thing I hate are the two guys who occupied my table 44 for four hours today and left me.... $4. It HAD to be $4, as there were just so many variations on "four" in the last sentence. Anyway, the guy was the first customer in the restaurant and needed to sit somewhere near an outlet for his laptop (what a pretentious bastard). He said "Ok, I'm just going to work until my friend gets here." I asked when that would be... he answered that it would be in FORTY-FIVE MINUTES. Now, this guy is a bastard. There's nothing else to it. By sitting at my table for 45 minutes, he was basically taking money from me (as I could have had at LEAST 4 more tables sit there... and that would have been another $16 or so) and he SAID "I'll tip you well." But $4 is NOT A GOOD TIP FOR FOUR HOURS!!!!! I even had their stupid calamari comped off the check. I was... livid. Especially after they stayed another 45 minutes after I had been cut and every table around them had been set up for dinner. Everything went wrong at work today in the kitchen... appetizers were taking 25 minutes, the soup was cold... I was already pissed off, but this made it so much worse. I almost confronted these guys when they came out of the restroom. I haven't been that mad in a really long time.

David Hamlin, I hate you.

Anyway, I got home and ate some cereal (my milk expires tomorrow and I want to use as much as I can so it's not wasted) and made some mac and cheese for later, watched one episode of Sex and the City, went to school and talked with Jon Mazur for like... 40 minutes in the parking lot (I think I got sunburnt) and now I'm just hanging out until rehearsal. And rehearsal.... is scary.


Because Bryan is torturing me. Torturing me by not only making me do stage kissing in Violet (I HATE STAGE KISSING!!!!) but also by making us devote AN ENTIRE HOUR TO IT at the beginning of rehearsal. WTF??

I KNOW I'm going to have to get over it... and it's a stupid, irrational fear.... but man, I soooo do not want to right now.

I am in such a bad mood. Sorry... I guess.

Sometimes when you google people... you get really funny results.

Sunday, April 09, 2006

I watched "Walk the Line", "The Terminal" and some Sex and the City last night, among doing other things like... going over my script for Violet. All three I liked... although "The Terminal" was kind of... silly.

Ok, so I bought one of those 4 gallon cheap ice cream things and this was a really bad idea because I can't stop eating it. My freshman year during the first week of "spring", all I ate was ice cream for that ENTIRE week. It was a good week...

As I was watching SATC I realized something: I am not a memorable girlfriend. You know why? Because I didn't screw any of my boyfriends up mentally. I have, however, been "the girl after" in my last two relationships. The cool, nice girl who gets to deal with all the problems that these OTHER girls created. First it was Hillary, then Becky... and it just seems so unfair that these losers threw something really great away because they were still obsessed with some girl who totally messed them up. Well, *I* want to be remembered! I want to be the one that every other girl has to be compared to. I want to be the one who is talked about so much with new girlfriend that she knows every stupid thing about me without ever having met me. But... I can't. Because I am not a bitch... and I'm too nice to screw someone up.

Maybe I should just stop dating guys who have been screwed up by their past relationships... because it is starting to screw ME up. Well.... maybe that was the plan all along. They got screwed up by some girl, so they'll screw up another girl to "get even with the world." I'm just.. not AS screwed up as these guys have been. Perhaps I am stronger... yeah... that's what I'd like to think it is.

It just sucks that you have to be the awful one to be remembered...

We have rehearsal in like... an hour. I'm a little scared.

Saturday, April 08, 2006

Usually, when I don't update, it's because nothing has happened. Or because something AMAZING has happened and I haven't had time to get online. This time it is the former.

Yesterday we were sooo busy at work. I took like 20 tables in almost 6 hours. I made only a little over $60. That's like $3 a table. Do you see why the OG sucks? Because of soup and salad. People are NOT going to tip more than $3 on a $15 check.

We tried a run through on Thursday night. It was... difficult. For me. I feel like it'll be ok, though.

Ok, so if you're not a regular viewer of my myspace page, go to it, now. Jenni has made the funniest pictures ever in my comments section.

So, my sister's car got broken in to AGAIN. They stole her CD player. I guess it's not THAT bad, though, since the last time they stole all her CDs.... so it's not like she had anything to play on the CD player. :/

I bought Ramen noodles. Can you believe that? I always swore I never would. But when you're as poor as I am you kind of have no choice sometimes.

I have OFF tomorrow! I can't believe it!

So, not only did I get approved by the acting faculty to audition for "The Last Five Years", they said that if I am cast... I don't have to audition for the fall shows at Kent. This is AMAZING as it is breaking like a million BFA rules... or, well... 2. But still! I was soooo happy because I would be so upset if I had to turn down Cathy to play that old woman in Cabaret. That would be like... my worst theatrical nightmare ever. So, please send good thoughts or prayers or whatever my way for Tuesday. :)

Some people who read this seem to be under the impression that I moved to LA to be an actor or "make it big" or whatever. I didn't. I never had any plans of staying in LA forever... I KNEW I was going to have to move to do what *I* wanted to do.... but I moved out there to be with Jim. That's why, when he left me, I moved back here. There was no point in prolonging everything. I only want to move back to LA so bad because I'm constantly rethinking what I want to do with my life... and because it's much more... awesome... than Ohio.

Last night I watched this badly made C.S. Lewis "biography" movie that was stupid and also... amazing. It made me think a lot about my own life and how no matter how hopeless everything seems, relief is just around the corner. And that relief... is even better than what came before.

Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Bryan canceled rehearsal tonight which I am soooo thankful for, as last night I fell asleep on the floor because I was so tired.

I missed the 01:02:03 04/05/06 thing because I was fast asleep by that time. Oh well. It's not THAT big of a deal.... and what would I have really done, anyway?

So, I had that medical thing today. It was kind of fun, actually. I got to spend a lot of time by myself laying down, I got to pretend I was sick... both fun things for me.

I'm going over to my grandma's in a couple of minutes to have dinner with her and mom and Jen. I'm excited.

Wow.... I am STILL really tired. At least I get to sleep in tomorrow (by "sleep in" I mean until 9:30). Hopefully this will make me... better.

I really, REALLY love chocolate. And I can't wait until this summer when I move scaffolding with Jessie, sing duets with Dan, and Allison and Ali and I can be friends and hang out WITHOUT studying for theatre history! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

I am so f-ing tired. I was tired to begin with yesterday and in such a bad mood at work and then I had to do a LOT in rehearsal... and then we were up until 5:30 studying for this stupid test. :( I was so.... sad. And it was impossible for me to memorize the dates. EVERYTHING else I was good on... but not the dates. Unfortunately there were like 12 questions on dates. I was reading the first question like it was in a different language because I was just.... so tired. The essays were good and I know for sure the other multi-part objective question was 100% correct... but man... those dates killed me.

After that I was supposed to have an exam in earth dynamics, but he moved it to Thursday which is good and bad.

I finally got to hear Kayce (the other most beautiful person I've ever known in real life) sing today in studio. Two hours of sleep and she was still amazing.

Here are some pictures from Griffin from the post showcase party.

Lauren was trying to open a bottle of wine and she was having some problems...

K-Fed and Britney all cleaned up

Me and Dan.... allowed to be friends again.

We have rehearsal tonight where hopefully more cuts will be made and then tomorrow morning I have to go become Joanne Presley. Hahaha... it's gonna suck so bad.

I need a nap.

Monday, April 03, 2006

So, two things have happened since my last post of importance:
1. I got thrown a major class registering curve ball because the sign language class (during the time I NEEDED to take it) is already closed... so I registered for the 5:30-7:10 class, which could have a million different conflicts.
2. I found out that I had been cast at Porthouse in JCS this summer and that the email was sent last Wednesday, but I had no idea.


Oh, and studying for theatre history last night was a hot mess. I'm really confident on the commedia/servant/king stag question, confident enough to BS the melodrama question and confident on the romanticism aspect of the Hernani question (but not so much on the Hernani part because that play SUCKS), but the objectives? Objectives WHO? It's bad. We were doing so well last night... and then.... I don't know what happened. So NOW we're gonna have to stay up again all night tonight. This is really...sad. For me.

EDITOk, this important thing also happened:

So, I DID go to see "Barbie, Live in Fairytopia" starring one of my good friends, Erin, in Columbus last night and it was so great! I mean, I know it was a children's show, and I was definitely looking really weird to be the only sort-of adult there without a kid, but Erin did soooooo well and the costumes were so beautiful, the set was amazing, ALL the cast members sounded incredible... it was just really nice and I am so happy for her to be part of such a huge thing. And to be playing Barbie... how awesome is THAT? It was their first "real" day of performances (they did some previews before yesterday, though) and her family was there and they took me out to eat at Max and Erma's. They were all so nice. Erin has such an incredible life. She said "It's so hectic though!" (She has a ton of interviews and stuff to do ALL the time) but I asked her if there was anything else she would rather be doing, and of course she said no. It was so nice to see her.

I'm at the rec center right now, as I feel like I will never have internet in my apartment again. We are having a theatre history study session tonight at 8, and I'm going to do some research online for a while. Our test is on TUESDAY (noooooooo!) and although I have studied some already, it is nowhere near as much as I SHOULD have by now. I knew this would happen. I wish she wouldn't have put the test the first day back from break.... sometimes I think she is actually trying to kill us.

We're also going to have Violet rehearsal pretty much everyday until the show opens.... although Bryan, I have to tell you that on April 11th, I am going to have to be very late. You'll understand later.

Man, I kind of need to stay up all night tonight to study for this test. I REALLY don't want to be up as late as we were last time the night before, so I figure I'll just do it tonight, if possible. Tomorrow is also my class registration day, one of the happiest days of the semester for me. :) (Because I am a nerd.)

MOST of our servers this morning were an hour late because they "forgot" about the time change. Last night while I was reading my Brockett I thought about "forgetting" also, but I figured a lot of people would be doing it anyway, and it would be bad if EVERYONE did.

Time to research romanticism and Hernani. :/

This update will say nothing because I want to go see Barbie live at 5pm and kind of need to leave... now. Bye. :)
