Hey everyone.

So I'm cosplaying Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle for Fanime. I ordered my wig awhile ago and it still hasn't come. @_@ It's not at that point where "OMG it's definitely lost!" but according to the tracking number it's been sitting in China "waiting to dispatch" for six days and I'm starting to get paranoid.

Does anyone have a silver wig with bangs they could lend me/sell to me. It needs to be roughly shoulder length.

So my school put on a production of Into the Woods via Downstage (the student production company).  I saw the show and, to be honest, it was relatively mediocre.  There were some VERY unfortunate mis-directed moments and generally the talent just wasn't there. 

BUT.  Into the Woods is one of my favorite musicals of all time.  It might be my favorite. 

As I was watching the show, I realized that what's so beautiful about Into the Woods is that every moment in that show is a metaphor for a turning point in your life.  Anyone can watch Into the Woods and find themselves in a character or a song, and it changes every time you see it, depending on where you are in your life.  Usually these moments come with copious amounts of tears. 

There are moments in the show that you'll only really get once in your life. You might understand what the other songs are about, but you'll only really feel these moments once - and that's when you're going through what the song's talking about.

My moments?

I've burned myself out.  I really have.  All the rehearsal, all the work, all the class, all the stress, I've officially burned myself out.  And it's manifested itself in the form of a damn nasty cold.

It started on Saturday with me getting a bad cough and the worst headache I can ever remember happening.  The next day I thought I felt better, but the symptoms started coming back with a vengeance that night.  My cough got worse, my headache loomed once more, I generally felt like crap.

I'm taking a sick day today, which is of course, the last thing I want to do.  I hate missing classes and work, but right now I feel like I'm breaking down and if I don't take a day to rest I'm going to fuck up my body even more.  

I have so much work to do - spending the day reading and doing conference work in bed.  Handled housing for next year this morning, hopefully my group-petition will work out.

I really want to go home.  It's sad, I love my school, I love all the work I'm doing here, but I'm just so overwhelmed and all I want to do is go home and rest.  

/goes back to bed.

Go get yours!

Also, can I get a head count of who's coming on Friday at 7:30? :X

We're going to probably be doing pizza, so please bring some money ($5 should be enough).

Came back in this morning, I'm hitting the town! ^^  Can't wait to see you all!

Flight's Delayed.

Don't know for how long.

I sorta hate this state and its...




Change of plans - managed to get my flight changed...

Staying at my Aunt's until then.  Generally upset, but there's nothing to be done. :(  *sigh*  I guess I have lots of writing/watching LOST I could do...

Hey guys! Thanks for leaving me birthday wishes and whatnot. :)

Yesterday was awesome on so many levels.  So many of my friends came to my party (so many that some of my claustrophobic friends went to the other room XD).  We all ate,drank, and were merry - it was awesome times. <3

Someone said "wow, 19 is kinda a sucky age, you can't really do anything new or anything" and I was like "no way!  This a great birthday because last year I didn't know any of you, and now I do!"

A lot of my old friends from school and home texted me or wrote on my FB to wish me happy birthday.  :3 I just love the idea that we never lose a friend really - even if you drift apart because of distance, the bonds are still there. 

Speaking of old friends - I'm coming home in less than a week!  WHOOPIE!


Party at my place:

I tried to accommodate everyone, but it was (obviously) very tough.  What do people say to March 19th, Friday night?  (I need to double check to make sure this is okay, but right now the weekend of March 19th-21st is looking most choice).  I know the 20th is the ALA picnic, but I'm pretty sure it's super local to my place, so we might just be able to come right from that to chill at the Doolittle abode.  I'll of course need to talk to the corresponding parentals to make sure it's okay to have this party, but I'd like to have a set date for them before I randomly propose this.  So are y'all free on that weekend?

Second job might not be happening. 

That's a sizable chunk of income down the drain if it falls through.  I'll know for sure after spring break.

Well, guess I gotta go find some other way to scare up more cash.
