Well, Oliver is over, and I had a blast. I went to my friends prom last night, and that was a lot of fun. So I'm running on about an hour and half of sleep, and lots of caffeine.

I got to dress up, eat fancy food at a fancy restaurant, ride in a limo, and dance the night away (on the dance floor and playing ddr at the after party).

If I had posted this about an hour ago, it would have been far more interesting. At this point though, my brain is kind of dead. I have to get up at 8 am too. Gasdfgjh.

I feel like I'm missing something, and I'm not sure what it is.

It is spring. That is my excuse.

Also,I'm having a horrible time cracking cs2. Maybe I should just start from scratch instead of trying to frankenstine with the program and crack coming from different places... bah.

The show actually went remarkably well this weekend, considering the disaster on Friday.

And I have decided I want to stage manage again. It's so much fun!

Well. That could have gone better.

I couldn't hear the cast until the second act when they gave me a monitor.

Boy For Sale was a disaster of a set change. We haven't yet run through the whole show without stopping. Well, now we have no choice...

The lighting cues were slightly screwy, especially at the beginning.

I need to keep kids behind that first curtain when stuff is happening in front of it so I can actually SEE my cues.

I need to make notes to myself in what order things happen, as in when curtain comes first and when they open and when lights come up.

I'm going early tomorrow night to work these things out.

It will go better. It will. It can't not.

I'm a little exhausted to say the least, and my brain seems to be taking a break. I have to get up in the morning.... I need to be able to concentrate better tomorrow night. I'm in pain for standing so long... but if I sit down I will lose concentration. I feel a little twitchy. Natelie... I understand. I was strangling the air tonight. But I think I knwo what I'm doing now.

I'm going to go eat and sleep.

Self, break a leg tomorrow... and don't worry. It will all be ok.

Man. I should have started teching sooner. I dunno. I guess last time I did a show it wasn't in my interests. I like being a leader person though, and in my possition as assistant stage manager, I am a leader person.

Yeah. I've never done tech before, and I'm assistant stage manager. I've been assistant music director for most of the show, but a few weeks ago Beth, the producer, came to me and asked if I could sub for the stage manager for the first weekend of the show. I had never done it before... and I said yes. I figured, what the hell, I can learn to do anything, and I've been aroudn the theater long enough. I was a little... terrified? though. But so far it's been awesome. I've just kidna fallen right into it. I think I've foudn my second theater calling. I don't know... maybe I should be a director. SInce I am capable of almost every aspect of the show. I ended up in the makeup room tonight, cutting a wig, and giving makeup advice. I warmed up the cast in vocal warm ups last night, and I helped set, and wrote down light cues tonight. I can do it ALL! Mwahaha. I got to run around in all black, wearing a spiffy head set. Yes. Spiffy. I get to do it again tomorrow night(firday), and saturday... But this time I really will be in charge, as I will be the only stage manager there. I will be calling cues, and telling people where to go. I'm having WAY too much fun with this.

I seem to have hit it off really well with the light guy too. Not the light design guy, but the one who I'm going to be sayign my cues to. He's my buddy.

Man. Why is it when I'm about to be moving across the country in LESS than a month, all the boys come out of the woodwork. Because that's the way the universe works. Oh well. I gots my mojo back. I'm having a blast. It's spring. That's all there is to it.

You know. I'm a sentimental fool. Always have been. But at least I know it. And I can observe it from the outside. I'm endlessly entertaining to myself in that way.

I have ideals that all come from my favorite tragic love stories. There is something about tragic love I've always found really appealing, as if only in tragedy can you understand truly how much you love someone. And maybe that's true. I don't know.

I think, to some degree, I have experienced what I hope for in love stories. And I will again. Probably many many times. And they will be tragic and painful every time. but I will also grow every time. And I can look back through each story like I'm reading them in a book. And know that they weren't just somethign I read, but something I lived, even if it didn't have any "happily ever after". But when have I ever been very fond of "Happily ever after"?

Pain and love are such incredibly similar emotions.

Now that is how you end a dry spell. Lia is in a good place. and boys are fun. Lia got some woyaya :P



Man, being the Young Adult at this conference was awesome. I got to chill with the youth, hang out with everyone I love, but I also got a hotel room, and a shower, and no con rules! It was pretty sweet. I was able to wander Harrisburg, do what I felt like without feeling guilty about "not being a responsible role model" for the younger youth. I had no obligations other than the blessing, and I just had a good time. A real good time. It was very much like a mini GA. a really mini GA, but a mini Ga nonetheless.

I've come away with an uplifted spirit, recharged energy, and a revitalized ego. I have so much energy, and I'm ready to take on everything I need to do before I leave, and I think, now, I'm even ready to take on leaving. I mean... I'm not leaving to nothing after all, I'm leaving to be part of something greater than what I have here. I think that's every reason to be excited.



p.s. Lia gets to go to prom this year too. Now how bout them apples, Mr. Universe.
