Also. You all need to go see Drive.
It is absolutely brilliant.
Mass Transit is officially doing Weezy.
Best surprise of the day.
Artistic Bucket List.
I am working my way through “The Artist Way,” which is possibly the most fantastic book about regaining yourself as an artist. In leu, Ash and I made a artistic bucket list for the semester. Here are a few: Present something at a poetry slam Broadway Dance Center Birdland Joe’s Pub Underground Jazz/ Swing club Find a restaurant where you sit on the floor and eat with your...

Check out this cast done at the Public Theatre because its making me cry that I missed it. Irina: Meryl Streep Konstantin: Philip Seymour Hoffman Sorin: Christopher Walken Nina: Natalie Portman Shamraev: John Goodman Polina: Debra Monk Masha: Marcia Gay Harden Trigorin: Kevin Kline Dorn: Larry Pine Medvedenko: Stephen Spinella Yakov: Henry Gummer Reason number 134 why I need to...
Hell yes, yankees clinch.
I saw Contagion.
All I did was think about Microbiology and Leslie Martinelli the entire time. If I wasn’t in theatre, I’d want to work for the CDC.
My Drama Bookstore Acting Edition Club card is...
Buy ten plays, get one free. It’s been less than a month since I started my new card. True life: I’m a theatre major.

It’s for Lysistrata…. Yeah, no.
Note to self:
When she asks you “what’s devised theatre and what’s the triangle shirtwaist factory?” Don’t respond in essay format including historical facts and complete definitions of devised and environmental theatre.
Well, that had to be one of the worst essays I've...
I don’t know how much I can give away about the set list. But let’s just say its filled Adele, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and perhaps N’Sync. But whose giving anything away?
I'm challenging myself.
From now on, during the week I will not go on Facebook or Tumblr till 10pm and will only go on for an hour. I need to be more productive.
Drugs Roll & Sex Rock
Guess who got into Mass Transit?
They went so well. Thank God I did Songs for a New World because they had us breakup into parts and only played each part once then we would have to sight sing in our group. Insane. But after “The River Won’t Flow,” “Your Love is My Drug,” the ballad, was rather easy so I got to switch between tenor 1 and tenor 2, getting to sing more times. But I was surprised at how...
I got a callback for Mass Transit!
I’m so freakin’ excited! Mass Transit is an all male a capella and they are epic! I was surprised on how many guys there were at the audition!I thought there was no hope at all. Still waiting to hear back from Vocaholics, fingers crossed.
Having friends in high places (an unnamed friend)
Unnamed friend: Check out this video. This girl just got cast in the Godspell revival and she's not even that good.
Me: No. She's really not... You are unreal. How did you find this video? There are like 200 hits on this, she's a complete no one. Do you just google this stuff, or..?
Unnamed friend: No. I'm not THAT much of a creeper. Hunter just sent it to me.
Me: Wait.. like.. Hunter, hunter? Hunter Parish?
Unnamed friend: (like its nothing) Yeah.
Me: He emailed that to you? You know him?
Unnamed friend: Yeah. You're forgetting I worked with him for a while. He's one of my really good friends..
Me: Like Hunter from Weeds?
Unnamed friend: Yes. I still haven't seen that show yet. Hahahaha.. But anyway isn't that girl awful?! I mean how did she get cast? I've been laughing about her all morning. Can't wait to see that train wreck....
Cold sores. I hate them

Pop. You know my voice. Suggestions?
Educational Theatre. It’s like that Gallatin of Steinhardt.– Lindsay Skokan.
Sometimes I wonder why I'm not pursuing a musical...
then my tap professor says things like “Well, I don’t give many A’s. I mean, Lady Gaga, she was stephanie at the time, took my class and she got a B. ‘needs to work on that foot work,’ was the note I took on her. So if she got a B, you can get a B, mhmmmkay?” And I suddenly remember how ridiculously pretentious some people can be and am incredibly happy I am...
It's thundering. And lighting. I'm on the 21st...
Writing my essay to go abroad.
This is for real. Update: I hate writing essays when I have to talk about myself.
The most amazing morning ever.
My two classes- Tap and Jazz. AMAZING. Tap was a bit more difficult than I had anticipated, but maybe its because I took intermediate tap when I’ve never actually taken a tap class before. Smart ideas? I think not. But Skokan and Cat are in the class, so I love it. Then there is Jazz. Which is the most amazing class ever. Its a jazz, hip hop and ballet combination and its the most insane...

I have never sobbed uncontrollably during a movie...
But I just watch the documentary entitled “The Suicide Tourist,” which made me do as such. Apparently, there is a place in Switzerland that not only does assisted suicide legally, but also accept patients from all over the world. So this PBS documentary follows a man, Craig, who is diagnosed with ALS and is paralyzed besides his ability to speak, during his last few days before his...
