Lordie, I haven't updated in over a month!! I've been seriously busy with this stupid musical and two dance classes and softball and algebra, plus all my church stuff. It's caught up to me; I slept for about 15 hours on Saturday. Fifteen. 11:41 PM--10:00 AM Friday night, and then 3:45-7:30 PM Saturday afternoon. I had exhaustion or something; I just had absolutely zero energy, which is the worst feeling in the world. And today, I have a sore throat, so I had to stay home from school today, which actually sucks because I had chorus today and I have make-up work. I HATE MAKE-UP WORK!!! Especially algebra make-up work. Bleahhhhhhhh... >:-( While we're on the subject...I got a 67% on my midterm. I swear, I don't know why anyone would want to teach this crap. When I did my four-year plan with Mrs. Kohls, I think I specifically requested that I not have her be my geometry teacher next year.
This musical that we're doing is really pissing me off. We're doing "Guys and Dolls", and it would be great if the actors knew what they were doing! Grace Flaherty (Adelaide), Aly Marks (Sarah Brown), and Ian Ferrell (Sky Masterson) know what they're doing, along with Stros, Nik and Scott, but Jay White (Nathan Detroit), who is pretty much the main character, along with the crapshooters, is/are totally screwing up his/their part! He/They never remember his/their lines half the time or his/their songs and it throws everyone else off and it takes forever to get through one scene (confused yet?). I cut him some slack in the beginning because he is the lead, but now, it's just getting ridiculous. And the Mission Members don't get to do anything! We have the most boring part in the entire thing. The one song we have is in a march tempo, which is the most boring tempo, the rest we sing with the rest of the cast; we don't dance, we only march; none of us have lines, except for one girl, and it's only because she's a senior and therefore, it's her "last hurrah", as Mrs. Korn put it. Which is cool. I don't have a problem with that. If our performance weren't two weeks away, I'd just drop out. And Josh had his own solo, which REALLY pissed me off because he wasn't even on the original cast list. He spent the lunch period the day the list came out moping, then whined to Mrs. Korn, who let him in. However, that solo is now Jay's. Whatev.
On a lighter note: I MADE MADRIGALS!! YAYZ!!!!! AND SO DID NIK!!! I like Nik a little better now; he's not quite so immature anymore. I mean, he still has a ways to go. But you know what? Maybe I do too. And Josh made it, too. I swear, what the heck is Mrs. Korn playing at??? Josh can't sing to save his life! He doesn't know the meaning of posture, vowels, or support. Good god. Maybe he'll get kicked out. I'm also kinda mad because Hanna, Jackie and Daniel didn't even get to try out.
So much for a lighter note.
Brandon Funk may now go die. I canNOT believe I was ever in love with him. He is such a jerk. I was looking over the old entries thinking "You know, you're an idiot. As soon as a guy strikes up a conversation with you, you fall head over heels for them! What is wrong with you?" I wish Kasey went to my school. And not only do I have to see him every morning by our morning hangout spot and play practices, but his sister, who is very nice, plays on the same softball league as me, so now I have to see him on Thursday evenings. I CAN'T ESCAPE!! *claws at wall* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
I just realized: I loved him at the beginning because he wasn't jerky at the start of the year. I guess he changed. Or I changed. Whatever. I don't care.
So in short....I WISH THE SCHOOL YEAR WAS OVER!!!
OMG, The Outsiders is my new favorite book/movie. I got a copy of the book, and I wanted to rent it from Blockbuster for Mom to watch, but it was out. Sodapop is my favorite. He is soooooooooooooooooooo cute. Here's a pic:
Revel in his mysical beauty.
Well, I'm feeling better. I shall try to update more often. I'll probably be able to once this besotted musical is over. Until then, hasta luego, or whatever.
