Esther, Hannah, Rachael | seniors (plus cool things)

Let me introduce you to three of the best girls I know.  From left to right, Rachael, Hannah, and Esther, and darling, each and every one of them.  Hannah and Esther have been part of my "fantabulous fivesome" group (myself and four other friends) over the past many years, and they are like two peas in a pod, really closer to sisters than best friends.  Rachael is Hannah's sister, and as they were all graduating at once, I say, why not have pictures together?

Also to start off as incentive you should read all the way through this post because there's cool things at the bottom yup. (you can do it. this is not bribery. I have faith in you.)

Off we went gallivanting about the wood and down by the reservoir.  Something I find really funny: Hannah & Esther are super super close, and yet holding hands made them super super uncomfortable.  It was absolutely hilarious.  They did it for about a minute and then were like, "no. no we don't do this." ahaha.

Esther has cool sunglasses (and she knows it).

If you knew Hannah, you'd know that one of the first words that comes to mind upon hearing her name is joy.  Hannah is full of life and love for her Jesus and for people around her.  Her heart is as big as her smile and her laugh is one of the best sounds ever.

Esther is hands-down one of the classiest people I know.  She is driven and she is caring and she always has your back.  She's really deep and is someone you can trust and pick up with right where you left off, no matter how long it's been.  

Rachael is an absolute sweetheart.  She gives the best hugs and is ready with a smile for anyone, and you seriously can't help but laugh with her when she does.  Also, the love she and Hannah have for each other is just so so sweet to see.

Love these girls a lot.  (Also they have good senses of style, amen.)  Also you wanna know a good feeling?  Going to a grad party and seeing your photos printed out and in everyone's hands.  Yeeeah, that's a good feeling.

In other news, those cool things!  First off, school is school but guys I'm studying theatre and I love it so much.  Seriously, I walk out of my theatre classes and I can't help but smile because we talk about nerdy theatre stuff and it's just what I love.  So I'm soaking that all up and trying not to drown in homework and focus on the fact that somehow God was nice enough to me to let me do what I love best.

Secondly, and if you follow me on any other social media you may know this, but guyyyyys I'm in a theatrical production of Les Mis√©rables. (!!)  I auditioned last week (where ahem I sang better than I've ever sung in my life before or since) and got called back (seriously guys getting called back for Les Mis is going on my resume) and got to sing Cosette really badly (too high for my range) and found out the next day I was cast (as women's chorus, so...lovely lady, worker, townsperson...with a few solo lines!) and we had our first rehearsal the day after that and wow this cast is so talented and I'm so flippin' excited.  This is like a major life dream being fulfilled. wowow.

So that's the most exciting thing in my life right now.  Welcome to rehearsals four times a week and no social life, Jenn.  If I start to complain, remind me that I asked for this, okay?

xo, meeee

    Les Mis.... oh my goodness, that's so exciting! I happened to be listening (actually, watching a Christian high school's performance of it on youtube) today and was just thinking how much fun it would be to be in it! Haha, Cosette. Would love to play her but I'm in the same situation.. too high for my range. But congrats on getting in!!

    Les Mis!?! That is so exciting. A family that I have known for quite a few years is really big into theatre. The whole family got cast to play various parts in our local Les Mis production (they're just that you). and since we are such good friends, he secured us four tickets....paid for! I mean like DUDE! //so happy//
