Girls go to college to get more knowledge... [19 Dec 2008|09:41pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

What? I got into my first choice college? That's fantastic!

That's right folks (folk?), I am set for the next for years. Now I just need to see how I'm gonna pay for it (feel free to offer money, I will take it). My mom picked me up early from school (because I kinda didn't have any more classes) and she brought a letter with her from Pace. "It's not it!" I exclaimed but she said it was. It said "You are accepted" right on the envelope! That means my mailman knows I got into college, cool. I haven't heard about the honors college or any scholarships yet but I am still super excited and can't wait for the fall.

WOOOHOOOOOO

Six Months Since Last Entry [14 Dec 2008|02:44pm]
It's been quite a long time since my last entry. Annnd...nobody reads this anyway. It's mostly for me to remember all the supa-fly stuff I do (i.e. seeing Naked Boys Singing!).

The cast list just went up for How to Succeed and I'm dance captain which makes me really happy. I of course didn't get a lead but that is a) because there are more talented people than me at school and b) because I'M GOING TO ISRAEL IN FEBRUARY! I'm excited. I'm also excited for this show. There has already been some drama surrounding the casting of the show but I'm happy for everyone and I'm happy about my part so I don't really want to get involved with it. Except I kind of am because I'm in the cast and friends with these people. Wah-wah.

Since my last entry [title of show] opened! and closed =( on Broadway. Rachel and I went to see it three times (the last being on closing night which Carrie attended as well). Closing night for [tos] was and amazing experience. They called it a pep rally and it certainly was. Everyone was screaming and cheering (us included) and crying. I hope it goes Off-Broadway (at New World Stages) and will run for a verrry long time there. And if it doesn't I'll sill read the [blog] obsessively and go to every event they are at.

I have applied to college and should hear from my top choice in about 2 1/2 weeks. I hope I get in! Once I do...I'll just stop going to school. Oh wait! I already have. I was sick the past two weeks and didn't really go that much. Oy. But only one more week to make it through and then VACATION! FOR TWO WEEKS! WAHOO!

I planning on majoring in Women's and Gender Studies. What do you do with a degree in WGS? Well...I don't know. But I hope to become a civil rights activist (for LGBTQ and women's reproductive rights). Do we still need activists for women's reproductive rights you ask? Yes, yes we do. Take a gander at this. Are you surprised? I'm not.

Why didn't anybody tell me Bare was so amazing? I didn't get to see it when it was playing here. I just watched the whole thing on-line and you should too!

YPT Parade opened last night. It's actually good which is frankly surprising to me because a few days it sucked. Not individually, everyone is actually very talented. It just wasn't coming together. But it is now. Yay.

I am Mrs. Phagan Saturday at 4 and Sunday at 12. Cultural Arts Playhouse. 714 Old Bethpage Rd. The last YPT show in the building. How sad. The new building is a whole 5 minutes closer to me however, WHOA!

I went to school one day this week. Oh well. Lotsa work to make up next week. At least I won't be getting home at midnight everyday again. My mommy bought me a Webkinz. Cute. It's a polar bear. I'm so hip and cool.

Kiss Today Goodbye [07 Sep 2007|08:37pm]
-I have been back to school for three days and I am already exhausted.

-Rocky is coming along...We have a lot of work to do and we haven't blocked everything yet but I like everybody and um it's Rocky. It's never been this amazing, perfect, flawless performance.

-I start dance class on Tuesday. I'm excited. I haven't taken class in like two years. Wow. I'm going to audition for the dance dept. at Boces. I essentially told my parents I was going to do this, I didn't ask. Why? Because they said I couldn't go. But when you say you're going to drop out of school...they tend to try and keep you in school. I know it would make me so much happier and frankly, I'm not going to lose anything from not being at school the whole day.

-I have a ton of homework

-Today in math we went over triangles. Sine, Cosine and Tangent. I learned this in eighth grade. Sweet.

-I have a rehearsal from 10pm to 12am tonight.

-My school is way overcrowded. We're not even that big. We just don't have enough space for everybody. The hallways are a nightmare to walk through.

-Teaching Hebrew to third graders is going to be an adventure.

Grr @ my school [18 Jun 2007|07:28pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

So because of ASL I'm not in AP English. I will not accept this. It's not fair. French also conflicts with it. If they don't make another AP class I am raising hell.

I also don't have O'Hagen for health :-\. Yea, my schedule isn't really so great.

0/1 AP Physics (hopefully changed to AP Bio)
2    ASL 4H
3    Math BX2
4    Gym 135/Free 246
5    Concert Choir
6    English 11H
7    AP US Hist.
8    1st Semester Health/2nd Semester free

So the first day of school = no free periods *uch*

Tomorrow (or Wed) I'm auditioning for Music Man at the Suffolk Y. I'm hoping for Zaneeta.

NYC Gay Pride March on Sunday? Comment if you wanna come/are going.


Bitten, SJP's line at Steve and Barry's is AMAZING! I just dropped a ton of money there. The prices are great and everything is fantastic. I also got a bunch of books @ B&N. Today was just a nice shopping day. I also got an interview for Sex, etc. It's a magazine and a website that has teen writers. I had to fill out this application and Sunday I have to go in for an interview! I am SOOO excited. It's a paying gig peeps. WOOHOO! Life is beautiful.
I got a 91 on my Global regents. Not bad for not studying at all lol. Hopefully I got a 3 on the AP test considering I studied my ass off for it. Never taking another AP class again. Crap, I'm taking 3 AP's next year. Love the summer hw for it.

Is it really necessary to have AP hw over the summer? [13 Jun 2007|07:22pm]
[ mood | cold ]

I have four packets of AP US History to do over the summer. Oh yay.

I don't know what I got on my director's book for theater. Rachel got a 100 though, how crazy is that? Yay Rachel!

I got tips. My nails look really pretty now.

Tomorrow is blue day! I hope it's hi-liter blue like I wanted but I'm sure it will look amazing with my black hair. Won't it be fun audtioning for The Music Man with blue hair? I think so.

Still trying to convince my mom to let me take that tap class at Variations. I kinda want to do the ballet camp too. We shall see. It sucks not being able to drive

Maybe I'll do the audition class at CAP?

I need to get my permit. And find time to take driver's ed. Ew.

Good luck to everyone taking the Math B regents tmrw. Try not to kill yourself.
Me = so glad I'm terrible in math and don't have to take it for another year

American Sign Language and Chem regents left. Then I'm a juniorrrr. Only two more years left in the horrid place. My school district sucks. Really and truly.

Weekend of Parties and Shakespeare [28 May 2007|05:13pm]
This weekend was amazing. I'm so glad that I had this party and I love all the people that were there and shared it with me (and I wished that a few people were there who didn't come). Thank goodness All's Well That Ends Well is over. I love the cast but the experience is not one that I will treasure for ever. Thanks to a certain person. Who shall not be named.

Found out some interesting news last night. Intriguing really. Heh.

About a month and a half until I go to Kutz. Can we say excited?

I turn sixteen for realz on Friday. AHHHHH.

I think Fiona Apple and I should have children together.

I had this really weird/long dream last night. Emily was my sister. She got droven to therapy and I had to miss mine because of it. I threw a big fit over it but then Eve took me except we were two hours early. It was better than missing it completely apparently. I also auditioned for Janet in Rocky Horror at CAP. I had to run around and scream for the first part of the audition. Hm. Well.

I need to go to CVS. If my parents don't get up...I'm going to have walk. I'd rather not. It's disgusting out. Yuch.

<3 PEACE

sunburn [15 May 2007|07:00pm]
Yesterday I decided to see if I could tan so I didn't put on sunscreen. Wrong. I burned. Not very badly thank god. But today, a bunch of people told me I had a sunburn on my back. I know! It's my back. I can feel it. I can even see it in a mirror. I am quite aware that my back is red.

Drama was difficult as well. My director really has it in for me. He will not leave me alone. I have one of the smallest parts in the show and he still picks apart everything I do. Do the leads who don't know they're lines get chastised? Not so much. But me, the clown. "You can't dance like that" "You're singing can't be nice" or the simple "You can't do that". Well, what AM I supposed to do? He doesn't tell me. How am I supposed to know? I also hadn't eaten all day and I was shaking and had I headache. But rehearsal got short because he needed to go somewhere.

The AP Global test is on Thursday. I can't wait for it to be over. I got a perfect score on the first half of my American Sign Language regents. So I still have a good chance of getting 100. That makes me less nervous also. I'm not really worried about what score I'll get on my AP. I just don't like not knowing the answers to questions and not being able to think of anything for an essay. I'll study some more. But if I don't know it now, I'm not going to.

One month until the end of classes. And I only have to go in for three days of finals. I can't wait until summer. No homework to worry about. No getting up early the next morning after a late-night out. Awesome.

An Update of Sorts [28 Apr 2007|11:11am]
[ mood | artistic ]

42nd Street is going very well. Those costume changes are a killer though.
Two more shows left, come and see it!!!

My grades finally went up *yay*

If you don't mind missing half a day of school on Monday, I have an extra ticket for a Spring Awakening/Degrassi Verbal Mash-up event. Rosie O'Donnell is hosting and Zach Braff is a special guest star. The casts of both shows are getting together to talk about the issues that come up in both shows. I really don't want to let the seat go dead so let me know if you are remotely interesting and I'll give you the details. [edit] I found somebody! Yaaaay!
[edit AGAIN] Lost that somebody. Lemme know NOW if you want to come

I'm bummed that I can't do Grease, but excited I get to go to Kutz this summer!

AP exams are coming up. Review class starts Monday. Ahh.

I need a haircut. And a job. No time for a job or a haircut. *bummer*

Bitch of Living [13 Apr 2007|10:43pm]
My days are so hectic lately. Hopefully things will cool down after All-State and after 42nd St. opens on Thursday. I'm unhappy and extremely happy with it. There are many things that aren't finished (or started) and we all sit around doing nothing a lot. On the other hand the dances we have done are amazing (although I still need to practice up my wazoo) and all the lead tappers are working their asses off to do them.
If nothing else, come see it for the fantastic tap dancing.

It really stinks when at the time when you need the most sleep, you can't get any. It's too cold during Shakespeare rehearsal to sleep even though I don't do anything the entire time, so I sleep for the hour I have before I dash off to 42nd St. and then when I get home after 10 I have to do all my homework and study and such. And then, you know, I go to school at some point.

But, would I change anything? Not even for a second.

I'm excited to do Coffee House. I've never been. Funness.

Boo to the dates for Spring Kallah. I've been to one Kallah this year. Def need to get on Reg Board so I can be like "Actually, those dates suck. Change them" Rawr.

Sam, Emily and I went to the city yesterday. We got student rush tix for Spring Awakening. People from the cast are starting to recognize me, my mom told me I was a stalker. Oh well. I love that show. I really want to see Company, A Chorus Line and Les Miserables though.
Passover tonight. Oh my. Not looking forward to it. But before that, I have rehearsal. Woot.

>Spring Awakening was AMAZING as expected. Next stop: On stage seats. Jonathon Groff totally hit on Sam, totally. I love it.
>I was really expecting a snow day today. School was hell to get through. Thank goodness I'm not in the school show, a tech rehearsal would have killed me. I came home and slept for 4 hours.
