Currently I’m pouting and wishing I was on vacation somewhere. It’s Spring Break, but Dad isn’t really able to take us anywhere what with us just having bought a new car. I’ve plenty to do at home and around town, but still. I have on the Whiteout Playsuit by Sabo Skirt and the Lola Cruz Rhinestone Mesh Toe Ring Sandals. I’m sporting a beautiful golden bronze color, (fake tan bottles FTW!) and I’m pretending that it’s warm enough outside to be wearing what I’m wearing. Actually, the weather has been pretty darn great, althought it’s been raining on and off as it always does in April. Sunday it was like 27º!! Weather’s fantastique.
And I don’t even know how I survived,
I won’t make it down the road with on headlight.
No, I don’t even know if I’m alive.
Woah, without you now
This is what it feels like.

Yes, I’m aware that the song is rather depressing…. my mood is probably way too foul for the beautiful weather I’m seeing outside. The grass is finally green, and the cherry willows in our neighbor’s yard are budding with pink. We drove by some gorgeouss (why do I always write it with two s’s? it looks wrong without them somehow… normally I’m all hooray for spellcheck… but no thanks) blooming dogwood trees yesterday, and I can’t help but let it remind me of the dogwood at our old house. ‘Twas a lovely thing, we were always coming home from church on Sundays and climbing on it in our nice clothes. That always upset Mama. Ah, us *laughing*.
So, I wrote a memoir for school! Although I’ve already submitted it, I keep remembering more ideas of childhood stories to put into it. I never realized how much I forgot about being a kid. It’s honestly a lot of fun to do, it’s very funny how much I love to write about myself. In any case, I got a fabulous grade on it, so I’m happy. Also, yesterday, what with my being on Spring Break, I decided I have time to get a few books. Therefore I stopped by the library and picked up some classics that I’ve heard a lot about but never actually gotten around to reading. Mayhaps I’ll write a review for one of those. So that is a breakdown of what’s been going on.
I did Alan Hineline’s Sleepy Hollow Ballet with the costume department at the Whitaker Center last Saturday. That was a blast, seeing all the students, meeting some of them (all the guys are really good looking haha) and helping out backstage. It was definitely a new experience. Also, despite the fact that I know what goes on behind the scenes, that evening I went and got tickets just to see it, and it feels magical, despite all the stress that actually happens backstage. Thankfully nothing went wrong, so it wasn’t an extreme amount of pressure.
Glad to be back! Happy Easter!
