piper tour donts

something that is not so fun on piper tour:
getting sick!

wednesday around...oohhh noon i started feeling bad. then on the way to dinner (in the literally on the way) i had keith pull the van over so i could throw up.

and that happened a few more times that night.

luck for me dinner was at a doctors house. so he gave me medicine and i slept at their house that night.

woke up at 12 noon.

went to WATCH the last two piper shows.

then we came home.

tomorrow we have another day of pipers in memphis!! im glad i feel well enough to actually participate tomorrow.

innercity highschool theatre kids....should be fun ;-)

couch vs floor

as me and austin were sitting on the couch tonight, we noticed a fun little trend (well, a trend of that night anyway)...
on the couch (and kevin was on a chair), were sitting the single people
on the floor/"the sea" as austin called it, were all the couples
...well thats not true, courtney was on the floor...besides the point
anyway. that was the observation. "couples" on the floor, single people not.

it was an interesting observation.
also interesting was my comment afterwards which mentioned me needing to hang out with new people...which i of course was kidding. but still. sometimes i just wonder when it will be my turn. i wonder how much longer it will be for i join "the sea." i wonder what events in my life will lead me to someone who i can sit on the floor with.

but, while i might make sarcastic remarks when my friends say cute, gushy things about their growing relationships, i am honestly happy for each and every one of them.
it makes me happy to see the 'couples' that are forming. because they fit. the people are good together. they complement each other. they are happy and with good people, and knowing that makes me glad for them. they deserve it. they all deserve it.
and i also like that we are all friends. that we are forming a wonderful group and the relationships are building it up instead of tearing it down. it is so good to see and be a part of a group of friends like the group i have.
i wouldnt trade them for anything.


this weekend was my roadtrip to michigan to see RENT!!
jordan unfortunately couldnt come because she got sick, but we printed off a picture of her and took her everywhere we went :-) so she was there in spirit. haha. the trip was LONG. and the snow once we got up north was PLENTIFUL (and annoying when needing to drive). but the show was GREAT. and the trip over all was GREAT. it was all very worth it.
this was one of those trips that you hear other people talk about and wish you could take yourselves. and we actually took it!! exciting!
i like that musical alot. cara and i are even planning on seeing it again in may when it comes to dallas.
i love my suite alot. they are the best girls to live with!

now its over though, and back to school.
so off i go.
back to life

the object of my affection

for those of you that have seen that movie...

...i kinda know the feeling


my life

Sunday, February 15, 2009

i couldnt ask for more

so yesterday was valentines day, and closing night for my show!

my valentine was austin jenkins, and my day was pretty perfect :-)
it started off by getting to sleep in till noon, which was awesome in and of itself.
then i woke up to notes on my mirror and a bag of kisses in my fridge from my valentine.
he wrote to leave my car in the ulrey parking lot by 1:30 and when i got back from doing that, i had more notes/quotes from him and instructions to be back at my car at 2.
so i got ready, and did as told.
when i got to my car at 2 i found a notebook on my windshield.
it contained a mix cd and instructions for the day.
(i also found his car for me to use, because he saw that i didnt have a cd player inside my car)
for all of you that have seen "elizabeth town," he made his own version of that for me (and since i LOVE that movie, it was wonderful!!)
the first thing was to just listen to the first track on the cd, and relax, close my eyes, and enjoy it. so i rolled down the window, stuck the cd in, and did so. it was "trapeze swinger" by iron & wine, and it was beautiful.
then it told me to turn the page :-)
i proceeded to travel to: the back of the reynolds (where i found a lovely poem),
the harding academy swing set, where i swang for awhile (which is one of my favorite things to do EVER),
i then went to kris and kevin's appartment, where i found the next thing/clue. and went back to car to listen to the cd and read what he had written me. which was the "alphabet of megan" and was 26 adjectives, and something written about each ones application, and it was beautiful. i could have cried :-P
then i went to the underground were we finally met and he had my favorite subway sandwich (sneaky jordan, figuring this out), and a sonic drink. so we had lunch and then watch "paris, je t'aime" which was an odd, but good movie, i will have to purchase it for myself.

It was wonderful!! i was so giddy pretty much the entire time. kris and kevin can attest to that fact when i went in asking for my next clue. haha. i loved it

we finished the movie about 5:30, so i had just enough time to grab my clothes for the last show and go see my mom and brothers who came in to see it.

then i watched the last performance of the show that i directed. i was so proud. it was really good :-) the whole process was stressful as ever, and i have definitely learned some things, had fun, had not fun, have things that i have learned i need to work on, but it was good. my cast was great, and my stage manager was amazing and kept me sane :-)

soooooooooooooo yeah.

pretty much it was a great day

and now that the show is over i will have a life back and NOT have rehearsals all the time!! yippee! (and the best part is, i see everyone in my cast usually on a regular basis because we are all friends anyway, so thats good tooooo)

AND this time next week we will be driving back from detroit after seeing RENT!!

the show went very well!
i am so proud of my cast and i love them and think they are great, and hope they dont hate me for putting on that director hat (especially towards the end) and being pretty straight forward....but i have always thought they were great and awesome! that is why i cast them! and i couldnt ask for more!!

sooo yeah.
opening night is done
that is a really good feeling.
now i just have to make sure things keep running smooth....because now its an actual show and everything is done and set and....yeah.

oh man


im just happy about it

i hope those theatre tales are true

ya know how they say that if you have a bad dress rehearsal that you will have a good show??

well, i sure hope that is the case tomorrow.

tonight was dress rehearsal and...yeah. i almost started crying twice during my show (not that good kind of crying)....and i dont think ive ever been as stressed...

well, i get stressed alot...but this is pretty intense.

this is my grade! my grade!!!!
based sooo much on this i have no control over...

my life....



i will be a happy person when its over (unless i get a bad grade...then i will be an eternally bitter person)

Sunday, February 8, 2009

and so it begins

so today started show week.

too bad school wont stop for this occasion.
too bad we dont have another week of rehearsal.
too bad sometimes i have to wait for my cast members to stop their own private conversations before i can continue to direct them.
too bad that in 3 days i have no more control over what happens in my play because they will be performing it for paying audience members.
too bad i havent been able to do laundry since i've been here...cara told me today that she might just end up doing it for me this weekend because she knows i have no time to get it done. haha.
too bad i have a test tomorrow in internet communication, and i have no idea what that teacher talks about in this test should be fun. since i know nothing about anything he says. internet communication="WHAT?!"


after this week, im going to see RENT with my suite!
at the end of this week i am doing valentines day with a friend :-) im pretty excited about it. i have no idea what we are doing, but ashley said he has told her part of it and she said i will like it. so thats cool.
after this week i will have time to do school work. and hang out with friends. and sleep.

done complaining about life now

missing him

so i just went to ex-bf's facebook to say hey (we are still friends, im not crazy stalker)...sometimes i really miss that boy. i mean, i am definitely ok with being just friends, and i know that is what needed to happen. i could see that pretty soon after breaking up.

still, sometimes i miss being with him, and miss what we had. we were friends before we dated, and so becoming closer just made it better. i liked that. i liked that he wrote music. i liked that he loved god. i liked that he would tell me he liked my hair when it was all crazy and messy. i liked that he used the word gorgeous when he complemented me. i liked that he was cute. i liked that i was dating someone i have had a crush on since 9th grade. i even kinda liked that we had dated before in h.s. i liked that the future didnt freak me out with him.

i liked all those things, and i miss all those things.

sometimes i just miss him.

but i am glad that we are still friends. and im glad that i have all of those things plus so much more to look forward to when i finally find that person i will spend forever with.

the day i find that is a day i am looking forward to.

until then i suppose i will miss him every now and then, be content with the joys my life currently has, and pray god doesnt wait too long to put that guy in my life
