Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise

My favorite song's lyrics:

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day

Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing
A vow that all betray

For the passions that thrill love
And take you high to heaven
Are the passions that kill love
And let it fall to hell
So ends the story

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light that gave you glory
Will take it all away

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day
Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing

perfect boy, imperfect me

"He should have messy brown hair, an English accent, like the same stuff as me..."
This is an inexact transscript of a conversation I had around midnight at a sleepover a few months ago. Here's a description of J, a boy I eat lunch with each day:

The Poems of Lady Jane Grey, 9 Days the Queen of England

This account is from the anonymous Chronicle of Queen Jane and of Two Years of Queen Mary.
‘...was there a scaffold made upon the green over against the White Tower, for the said Lady Jane to die upon....TThe hangman went to her to help her therewith; then she desired him to let her alone, and also with her other attire and neckercher, giving to her a fair handkercher to knit about her eyes.

as yet unfinished

The frosty air bit her nose as a small girl in a grey woolen coat hurried down the street, struggling to keep up with her wizened companion. Ever few feet the old woman would look back and scowl at her, interrupting the steady plunk plunk plunk of her walking stick. Then she would turn and continue on her way at an invigorated pace, leaving her charge to huff and puff her way along behind.

too bad

so my friend A has lost all semblance of a personality. It's like she's become high school, you know? Everything is centred around school, even if that's not what she's talking about. And I wish I could talk to her about my life but that would mean coming out cause I HAVE A CRUSH ON A GIRL!!!!
...And there's really no way to talk about why I like her while making her sound like a guy. Ya kno. Cause she's a girl.

IS

Is the passing from this life really so mournful a thing?
for truly, every moment we are passing from one world into another,
never to see the former again.

The Fox Within

Today in Comp Mr. Richards had us write about what animals we are most like. I wrote about a fox, because I look like one (my face is kind of angular and I'm always serious-looking) and we're both good at adapting. Also because I'm a loner, just like a fox, but I didn't say that. I rarely give legitimate reasons for personal things when I'm writing in class.

:(

So It's 3:03 & I've only been up a couple of hours, I'm still trying to wake up. Highschool really takes it out of a person.

wednesday

Well, the 1st 2 days of school were pretty good. I made it to all of my classes on time, made acouple of friends, and learned some Spanish.
Oh, and interesting tidbit--my geometry teacher (he's quite a character) was the sergeant in charge when they found Matthew Shepard's body in Laramie. That must have been a fun day at work. :(
I'm watching The Nerdist's time travel episode. Those guys get some pretty cool guests.
Hm...nothing else really interesting going on. But extra points if you can tell me who my picture's of! :)

A Day in the (Rather Uneventful Really) Life

Got up around 10. Drank the last of the milk with instant breakfast in it.
Got dressed by noon. When I got out of the shower I found a note saying my parents would be back in 4 hours, so I took advantage of that time to finish my home work and watch the season premier of Doctor Who, which I somehow forgot was about to happen (but thankfully recorded).

Uh-oh

I just looked at my calendar and my fall/winter auditions are the same day as the 1st day of school. Which is closely followed by school play auditions. Which are closely followed by my grandfather's surgery. Which means I'm going to have 2 weeks of non-stop work, in school, on stage AND in the hospital. &%$#@#&$@!!!!!!
Oh, and did I mention I'm starting an excercise program too? I'll have to bring the stairstepper with me when I go to visit Cowboy Grandpa. :P

New stuff (life is changing)

So highschool is starting soon. I just went to orientation and it seems like it won't be too bad. I even made a friend at lunch afterward! She just moved here from Texas & she's in the gifted program.
Oh, and I decided to try out for Drill Team in the spring. I didn't transfer to this district in time for the summer tryouts, so I'm going to start working out and stretching so I'll be sure to get in when tryouts roll around again. I've always loved dancing and wanted to wear a uniform, so it will be really fun I think. The team is super good--it's won all sorts of state championships.

Congrats, Leon!

I was just on Facebook and saw that I had a friend I didn't remember having named Leon. When I went to his page, I saw that he was actually an old friend from the theatre who I hadn't talked to in a while--a friend who had just come out as FtM (I had formerly known him as N, a girl who had taken me under her wing the first time I volunteered as a camp counselor and always comes to my shows).
It made me feel really good to see that I'm not alone, and I'm really proud of him. The comments on his coming out post were quite supportive too, which is encouraging.

Goodbye, Ellen, Nails & the Dancing Girl

Well it's over. No more Julie of the Wolves. *Sigh*
Here's an interesting question: Have you ever been less than a foot away from a beautiful girl while she's changing? It's an interesting situation to be in--thank goodness I won't have to deal with that anymore. (Although I am proud to say that I did NOT peek!)
She wasn't the only person I felt akward around. This kid, K, from my cast kept making eye contact with me & looking away really quick, and I could feel this weird connection between us. I wish I had talked to him a little before the show ended.

my quality of life

...has improved drastically recently. And as far as I can tell, it's directly linked to my parents laying off all their employees. Now they can work from wherever they want to, they don't have to deal with a lot of doofusey employees & they've hired me as a part-time editor! Their stress has gone down so much that my mom and I actually went a WHOLE DAY without fighting. And she laughs and gets all bantery all the way to rehearsal, which is a long walk through the city at 8 in the morning.
