I was just reading the paper and it looks like we're going to get marriage equality in my state! This is very exciting. I was all worried about that kind of thing when I realized i was bi, and here only a few weeks later I'm getting all my rights! I just wish I had been able to help get the bill passed--I feel like i should have contributed in some way, even if these rights are something everyone is supposed to be born with.

My parents seem pretty serious about sending me to highschool, and I don't want to go! I like homeshooling, and it's not like I don't ever leave the house. Besides, I'd have to wake up SUPER early to get to school. And I probably wouldn't get to go with Allison, so I wouldn't know anybody except a couple of cast members who I barely ever talk to except on stage. Oh, well. I'm just planning to do the minimum amount of work on school and focus on acting & writing anyway, and I guess I can do that just as well in a brick-and-mortar school.

Yesterday I got the email from the Youth Theatre that I got cast in Grease! I kind of wanted to be in Beauty and the Beast (it's being directed by my fave director) but this way I get to do TONS of singing and dancing. Woohoo!

Today I'm going to TeenWrite, and I get to read part of my script out loud to the other kids. I'm going to give some of them roles to read, so it'll be really fun!

I should be doing school (but my computer's having a hard time connecting) so that's all for now.

A fitting title.

Yay!!!!!!! (extra exclamation marks) @marriage equality
Grr @high school- I've always wanted to be homeschooled, it sounds so much less stressful and much more productive. Consider yourself lucky you got a chance at it in the first place :/
Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!@Grease! (Yes, Grease outranks marriage equality. For I love musicals far too much, and Grease seems so fun :P)

Wow.woW

I

was in Grease once. It was magical
And I stage managed Beauty and the Beast last spring. :) Both are delightful, but if I had to pick one based on the amount of fun I had, I'd definitely say Grease. :)
