"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be the blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king. "

- J.R.R. Tolkien
Christmastime is Here!

And it's busy busy busy! Well, not extremely, but it feels that way. Finals were easy-shmeasy and I got a 100 on all of them except APUSH, of course. But I got a 94 so I have all A's!

Also, I got into NHS. Ha, but apparently no one got rejected. Whatevs, hopefully it won't be an added stress though.

I was more successful than I thought I'd be on my Christmas shopping. I spent about 25 bucks on 8 or 9 people. And I payed for one of my friends gift basically for a friend (I cheated and used a Giftcard). One of my gifts for my friend fell through but I'll get her something else. I just need to get gifts for family now! But, I have no clue what to get any of them. I'll think of something. And I need to get started on some of my friends gifts that I'm making. Ah! It's going to be a busy week.

Also, I am going to audition for Little Women at the Houston Family Arts Center!! It would be a dream to come true to be in that play! I'd really want to make one of the sisters, even though I know the chances are small. But I feel like I was made to be in this play. Although, if I could ask for one thing in my life, I'd ask for a bigger range in my voice. I mean, I like my voice fine, I can hold notes for a while, but I don't have much of a range. I mean I can hit high notes... but not very well. Ya know? And musicals (especially this one) usually have big ranges. But you know, if I could just be apart of this play.. I'd be happy. So we'll see!

Merry Christmas! (:

"The Joy and Thrill of Being a Hit in a Smash Play"

At least, I think that was the quote. Anyways, FD & MSND went awesome! It got really good reviews! And, I have a lot of fun. Like really. I enjoyed the part more so than the character, but it has been one of my favorite to do. (I mean, comedy isn't really my type- I'm more drama, but I loved making people laugh). And, I guess, now I know I can be in a comedy. Haha. But, anyways, I'll miss it.

UIL is coming up and I am really really really really really excited. I hope I get a part (knock on wood.) Wish me to break a leg! (ha, I don't know how else to say it). Anyways, though, I don't need to worry about it just yet... I still have Christmas Break! Which I'm sooo excited for. I'm trying to get a lot of use of out my Cheesy Christmas Sweater, haha, so every party it is mandatory. Lol.

I also am going to give a lot of gifts this Christmas. I hope. I only have one gift in mind to give to one of my friends... it's kinda expensive but I am going to get it for her anyways cause I know she'll love it! But, I think I'm going to go to Hobby Lobby and get people some stuff there or make them like memory boxes or something along those lines. I'm hoping for cheep! I'm really excited for this christmas. I really want to get everyone gifts, and I wish I had the money for it. But, I'll do the best with the little I have.

Merry Christmas!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I've been meaning to. But I am so excited for the holidays! And yesterday was the best day I've had in a long time! It snowed pretty much all day (or, the whole school day) and it snowed hard for a while. I hung outside all during theatre and we were dancing and singing and it was just really fun!

This semester is almost over. It truly has gone by so fast. And that means, only 3 more semesters of highschool!!! Although, the closer I get to college, the more scared I get, and the more I have no clue where I want to go or what I want to do. I mean, ideally, I want to go to NYU to study theatre, but it's kinda too late for that. (The auditions are insane and competitive). There are colleges I'm looking at, but I don't know where I am going to end up going and I don't want to go. I don't want to take the SAT, but I know I need to. It's all just happening so fast.

The play is this weekend, so you should come! And tell your friends. It's going to be good. I'm a little nervous but, then again, I know it's going to go fine. I can't wait for it to be over so I can get a little break. And then, UIL. I so hope I get a part. (knocks on wood). I hope I get a part I'll really enjoy. We shall see!
