sparkleandfizz: This is a good thing. She’s number three on my favorite Eponines list. Thank GOD its not Taylor Swift. Theatre gods do exist.
So Em and I had nothing to do.
We drank wine and looked up the number one song on every year of our birthday and made a playlist. Best idea ever. Let’s take a look at my playlist: 1992- Baby Got Back, Sir Mix Alot 1993- Can’t Help Falling In Love, UB40 1994- I Swear, All 4 One 1995- Waterfalls, TLC 1996- You’re Makin’ Me High, Toni Braxton 1997- I’ll Be Missing You, Puff Daddy & Faith Hill...
What is my life?!
My recent google searches include: G-Unit Blood Mary Recipes Metronome Tracy Chapman I’m sorry. Does anyone else not think this is hilarious?
More wine and tea.
No. I’m not an alcoholic. Or a 50 year old menopausal woman. Its just that this tea costed me 80p and the wine £2.30.

This makes me so nervous.

All I want to do is have a post run stretch or abs or something. Every time I go for a run, I come back and my roommate is still here. Doing nothing but playing World of Warcraft. Whatever hour of the day- 8am, 12pm, 8pm, 11pm- he is playing this game. I just want the room to myself for one half hour so I can play music and finish working out. Or at any point. Every time I come back, he is here....

While I read the first gothic lit book published, entitled Vampyre. Something about this combination doesn’t work too well together.
Just received my free roundtrip JetBlue ticket.
They fly to Aruba. I found $68 a night hotel. I’m tempted to just take a long weekend for myself… But really. This is a very real possibility.
Just flew through three acts of a Shakespeare I’ve never read and actually comprehend everything that is happening without the use of No Fear, Sparknotes, or reading the footnotes. Finally feeling accomplished in my choice in Dramatic Literature as a minor and as an actor. Now to the other 10 plays we read this semester!
Seriously considering a room transfer.

"Do what scares you the most."
I have to say, it was the best advice ever given to me. Funny thing is, I can’t actually remember who told it to me. It just stuck in my head, “do what scares you the most.” In some ways, I abandoned this advice when choosing to go abroad. I mean with all the places I could have gone, London was the only place I could go and still, potentially, graduate a semester early and...
I am a champion when it comes to buying books.
I just downloaded Kindle for my laptop and successfully purchased all of my Gothic Literature books free of charge. Hollah, hollah, don’t spend a dollah! Then I purchased all my Shakespeare books for about 20£ less than I would if I got them at the bookstore. I still have yet to figure out my Ethics class, but the plan is to never purchase another book that I don’t want to keep for my...
Things that excite me:
First day of classes. Receiving syllabi Quick recaps of Syllabi. Gothic Literature: Field trips to cemeteries. Close reading on Dracula. Shakespeare Text and Performance: One play a week. Filed trips include shows at The National Theatre. The Globe, The Swan (Stratford-upon-Avon), and reading a play entitled “Tis Pity She’s a Whore” (not a Shakespeare play, which is strange...
Boom. See you in the Superbowl again, Pats.
I look forward to our rematch.
And so it begins,
the onslaught of Patriots fans bragging their win. Seriously, if it wasn’t for the poor kick, it could have been a different game. I hope this game makes you realize that you’re not as strong as think you. Prepare. You know I’m a Giants fan but regardless of if the Giants or the 49ers win this division, you should not think this year’s Superbowl is in the bag.
Signed up for my day trips,

It literally kills me how much Malvolio is just shit on at the end of the play. Literally, every character just chews him out. I know so many Malvolios in my life and if only half of what happens to this man could happen to them, then Karma would finally be all caught up.
I have to do something about this bed situation.
Seriously. NYU London beds are the most uncomfortable things I have ever slept on. Its like having springs in your back all night long.
This was seriously one of the greater days.
Oxford or Cambridge?!
We get three all day excursions paid for with NYU London. However, with my Shakespeare class I already get an all day excursion to Stratford-upon-Avon, so I actually get four all day excursions! So far, I’ve chosen: Stonehenge and Bath Dover Castle and White Cliffs Stratford-upon-Avon The real questions is: what should my last one be?! Oxford or Cambridge!?! I was originally leaning...

This is getting out of hand. But actually. And I hate this show. Its on my list of “musicals that should be collected and burned from history” list.
I need to read a play.
That’s really what I’ve missed this winter break.
