I'm going to be grinning every time I write it -- in any form.

I am easily amused.

Do you have class in the morning? :O

I know I said I'm alternating every day, but I'm doing Underdogs for fun while I write my synopsis draft for Sticks and Stones for class Friday. It is so boring I'm procrascinating.

I'm doing the scenes from the print out.

I still haven't got any idea for the ending. I'm hoping Vampire Diaries will give me some.

Still wish I could see the show! I'd totally be a squealing fanboy. Break a leg.

Gaaaaaaaah rehearsal just ended and I don't have enough time for my costume changes and me and Without Love was a mess- nay, the entire second act- and we don't have anymore rehearsals, the show starts Friday, I'm not ready and the costume changes are completely different and I don't know how I can do this, I feel ready to vomit at every moment because no one in this whole fucking show knows what they're doing and it's a mess and I have The Lion King tomorrow night and I'm just going to vomit all week from the stress.

Sorry, Tally.

Spring break is in 3 days. I just want it to be here already! So much homework, quizzes, tests and exams all of a sudden... And I don't feel like doing any work. It feels like it should be spring break already. Ugh!

WHY CAN'T IT BE SPRING BREAK RIGHT NOW?!?

You can do this Tally!

Our senior play we had almost an entire week of snow days two weeks before the play (our tech week). We got screamed at by our director a few days before the show because no one knew when to go on, one guy constantly forgot his lines, and there were constant problems with moving the set around. Our play had to be two hours. Our first dress rehearsal it was three and the last it was two and a half.

But we rocked it. Everything will come together. I'm sure of it. *hugs*

I miss writing. I miss that feeling when inspiration strikes when I feel like there's a balloon inflating inside me and I'm going to explode if I don't start writing immediately. I miss feeling like there are so many words inside my head that I can't get them out fast enough. I miss laughing and crying and hurting along with my characters.

Morning...

My school play of the Lion King is today (I'm Scar, and that's part of the reason I've been so stressed. I have not even made it home the past two night because I've had dress rehearsals for two shows).

But gaaaaaah Hairspray is so stressful. Community theatre problems? You can't threaten to fail people when they all of a sudden decide they don't want to be a police officer in 'Welcome to the 60's' because it's too stressful to put on a hat and jacket in five minutes- never mind that us leads have costume changes under 45 seconds!
