|my yard in autumn? mhmm.|
My life my life my life.
You would not believe. You would not believe how crazy it's been, how many ups and downs and interesting and hard and wonderful and funny things that happen that just keep life chock-full and insane.
October is a much friendlier month than September, I've concluded. September kind of dumps school on your lap and laughs when you try to protest that summer shouldn't have ended yet. October...October just smiles and gives you a hug. It gives you a hug when you're laughing, and when you're crying, and when you're too busy for either. (creepy? it's just what came to mind okay, gosh. besides who wouldn't want a perpetual hug...or is that just me...awkward. I'm going to stop now.)
This girl is taking 17 credits of just thrilling college work (for those of you that don't know: that's a lot). I'm blowing my own mind. Besides that I have the play--oh gosh sakes, the play. I don't think I even told you guys about the play! I'm incredibly rude, can you ever forgive me?
So! Back in...oh gee, I don't know when that was. August? Yeah, I think August. I auditioned for The Legends of Sleepy Hollow ("Legends" being plural because it is a mash-up of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle and unlike you'd think is quite hilarious) with my dear little community theatre. I got a small role, Marta, one of the village girls. Basically I get to stand onstage and make eyes at the boys the whole time. So it
Also, I love theatre. Just...adore it beyond words to express it. I'm in the process of looking at colleges to apply to and figuring out programs and what I want to study, and while I'm not sure if it's something I'll keep as a hobby or do in college or if I'm really any good or how impractical it is, I really really just want to do theatre forever and ever amen. It's my passion. I love it to pieces.
School and theatre--those are the two consistencies in my life, with many other things thrown in. Things like:
-absurd amounts of pumpkin spice lattes
-getting lost and laughing over it
-chilly mornings on campus that turn into breezy perfect afternoons
-oversleeping/traffic jams causing me to be late to class
-making new friends
-daydreaming about a week long nap
-long phone calls (my favorite)
-stargazing on the roof
Okay, over and out, friends. Have a smashing week. (...but don't really smash anything; I really don't recommend it.)
ps--your encouragement and feedback on my last post was just so overwhelming. I couldn't have imagined with how personal it was to me that it would have touched so many of you, and...yeah. thank you. thank you.
pps--this girl is on tumblr. say whaaat. I'm not sure if I really understand it (though I will say that Rebekah and her tumblr are like my heroes in life). I think it's going to teach me how to be an old cat lady, right?
