I'm proud of my gaydar. I had a girl who I'd pegged as un-straight? Turns out she's unstraight. But... she's an 8th grader. -.- So she's not very datable at all, even though if she were my age, she totally would be. And the sad thing is? I wanted to be able to do mentor-y for someone the way my seniors did for me... but she's more experienced than me! It's kinda sad...
Okay, see that title? Yeah. Someone actually said that to me today. HOLY SHIT.
Shax. Shakespeare. Twelfth Night. At my school. OMG! So, I went to Shax rehearsal today b/c I'm teching and needed to take notes on lighting ideas, etc. And I'm excited to maybe maybe design and certainly hang lights for this show. ^^ But omg the show was so great!
I have to start giving my journals more interesting titles. Even if they have nothing to do with the subject matter. That one does, though. I love chorus so so so much, it's fantastic and we sound so great and it's such a great chance from my previous chorus and I just love it so much!
Hah! Told you I'd be back! Sorry if this stretches out the page a bit, I found these hillarious. I'm gonna make some motivational posters of my own very soon. Most Buffy related. Possibly some about Oasis ^^
So. I've got a friend who's a bit screwed up. She seems really innocent, but... her parents are horrible and they really fucked her up. She had a period of anorexia, she routinely climbs on rooftops, she cut, and she tried a cigarette... but said she wouldn't do it again. Well, surprise surprise; she did it again. SHIT. So, um........ any advice?
Yes, I intentionally left a comma out of the title. That's how it's supposed to be read ^^ Anyways. There's a guy at my school who is absolutely amazing--not in the drop-dead gorgeous way or anything, because I'm not, plus I'm the first to admit I don't appreciate that stuff all too much on guys, but... he's just so incredibly nice, and sweet, and fun, and energetic, and sincere.
I'm suddenly remembering all the things I did when I was infatuated with her. I thought we had something so amazing. I started being obsessed with tacky love songs because she was. I started wishing she would say those things to me. Oh my god, it was pathetic. Sometimes love songs and their ilk can be really good and honest and sincere... And So It Goes is a reasonably good example.
Oh. My. GOD!!! I just went to a theater workshop thing with Robert Lopez and Lin Manuel Miranda! (They are, for those of you who don't know, the writers of Avenue Q and In the Heights, respectively, and alums from my school.) And OMG IT WAS SO HAPPY!!! I know I'm a geek, but SQUEE. They are both so ridiculously awesome, and they're both Sondheim fans, and it's just so fantasmagorical! SQUEE!!!!
Hey, I mean, Llama has the Gaily News. My title isn't nearly as clever, but I want a regular feature too! May change to "Your Music Geek Moment with Gaynow" or something of the sort. Meh. 'Tever. And so I present to you: Reasons Gaynow Loves the Internet, post one:
I'm such a music person. Music is such a huge part of my life and of who I am. I love music.
But I see all these people, in YouTube comments or elsewhere, who have been moved to tears by music.
And that's never happened to me.
Had Esther's b-day today. It was fun. Hung out with the UnSems. Except they might join seminar, and I still have random guilts about quitting it because I don't know what I'll do with my life as a day job if I want to write stories and music. Argh.
Oh. My. God. FANTASTIC song. I've been listening non-stop. It's true. So true. *sobs*
Ooooookay. I, um, I, uh, wow. Wtf. Yesterday I went to Xanadu (it was so-so and over-miked) with two friends, and they came over to my house before-hand. Yeah, I've given up trying to anonimity on this site, I just hope that no one I know finds this. So, Ellis and Lindsay (both straight-as-an-arrow girls) came over, and so did Chris (straight guy) who was on the subway with us. And...
Okay, so. I feel like a bad person for it, but I have to admit that I HATE reading badly-written things. If someone just declines to hit the shift key, and so it's all lower-case, I'll still read something... not so much if they left out all their apostrophes, but I'd still probably read it. But when I see a piece of writing or a forum post with a bunch of r's and u's and that sort of stuff...
