Warning! Musings of a Top Secret Twlight Fan

Song of the Day: Americano by Lady Gaga

Yes. As you might have guessed this is where I am going to tell you, my ADORING fans, about my trip to the "city" of Forks, WA. This is the sign that you pass when you are within the town limits. Right as you are coming up to this sign there is a visitor's center that has two bright red, old pickup trucks out front. One of them has the license plate of Bella and is the one that Stephenie Meyer based Bella's truck on in the books. The other red truck that looks slightly more new is the ACTUAL car that they used in the movie. It was pretty cool and of course I have pictures next to it. I then took my little journey into the vistor's center and let out an audible chuckle. The walls were covered with Twilight posters and all around the store was pictures, postcards, and t-shirts. We decided to get a map from the lady at the desk who told us that we should sign the guestbook and put a pin the map. Today alone they had 4 pages full of people that had visited and it was only one in the afternoon. The map was packed of pins from all over the United States to the world. It was pretty amazing and we decided to go find a bigger store in the center of Forks.

So we drove into the center of town and there really is one stop light and a hardware store. All of the other stores pretty much have to do with Twilight and it is pretty hilarious. Stores that sold prescription drugs claimed to be Bella's First-Aid station. We decided to go into a store called Dazzled by Twilight. This was the big fan store in the town and it was pretty crazy. There were huge fake trees and twinkling lights on the ceiling and green grass-like carpet on the floor. There were more cardboard cut outs and tons of t-shirts, sweatpants, jewelry, magnets, and tons of other things that just made me laugh when I saw them. After walking around and seeing funny shirts I decided on one that said "Give Blood. Date a Cullen." I thought it was funny and it was unique-ish.

Our next stop on my secret dork tour was La Push and the Quileute Reservation. We drove all the way down La Push Rd. and passed by a house that stated that thats where Jacob Black lived. There was even a motorcycle out in front. Once we were in the Reservation there was a sign that said, "No Vampires allowed past this point". It even had a sign that said treaty line. Once we got to First Beach I started to really get excited. One, it is absolutely beautiful and even though the water was super cold the view was absolutely breathtaking. The other interesting thing that happened was a lady that lived on the reservation came up and talked to us for about 15 minutes. She was an honorary member, which meant that she wasn't native american, but she had lived there since she was little. Let me tell you she was quite the character. She was telling us where to find the best shells, how to skin a 43 lb salmon, where to make cheap money on the res, and she also loved my earrings that I got in India and said that she had a pair just like them that she got in Tibet. Yes, she was a hippie but she was telling us that she loved living there and she had been living in Seattle for 20 years, so she told us that her love for this place was some special. As we were leaving the guy she was with, who was Native American, told me that he loved my earrings and that he could catch fish with them. I REALLY wanted to take pictures of him because he looked like he had one of those faces that had seen many crazy things and that he would have loads of stories to tell. I didn't want to be rude but I kept thinking about what sort of things this man saw. My mom and I were super sad that we couldn't take a picture of him because of their tribal law.

Tonight I am staying in Port Angeles another place that was mentioned in the Twilight books. There arent't as many places here as in Forks but there is another Dazzled by Twilight stores and supposedly the restaurant that Bella and Edward ate at called "Bella Italia". All-in-all it was a fun, dorky trip but my favorite part was when I saw three 40-year old money with matching shirts that said that they want men that can sparkle. It was pretty hilarious and it pretty much made my day.
Tomorrow we are off to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. I am excited to see some more flower gardens and just to go to Canada in general. One week until it is wedding central!
Lots of love and vampire blood. Diva.

Shakespeare in Love

Song of the day: She is Love by Parachute

Highlights: basically everything that has to do with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

So where you last met me I had had a wonderful day in San Francisco. Well a lot has happened since then. But instead of writing a long post describing my trip to Ashland I will sum it up in a few bullet points.
~Went to the Maybeck church in Berkley.
~Drove on the coast of California. Saw the ocean, which was beautiful. It took forever because we were on windy roads.
~Stayed in a hotel that promised ocean views. Guess what? They didnt exist.
~Drove on some more windy roads in the woods on the way to the Redwoods.
~Drove THROUGH a Redwood.
~Explored a river in the forest.
~Almost DIED driving down the mountain
~Met some cousins I never knew I had and they were super awesome.
~Arrived in Ashland, OR.

Now onto the super good stuff. So we woke up early in the morning and got ready to go on our backstage tour of OSF. They told us the history of the festival and just how many plays they did in a season. Theatre friends, listen up. In the height of their season they are doing 12 plays at a time. Their season runs for 8 1/2 months. Not only are they doing 12 shows at a time they are doing about 3 to 4 shows in ONE THEATRE. You know what that means. They have to change out the sets before every performance. That means that all the sets have to move easily and be stored, so you can imagine the type of space that these theatres have. It was absolutely amazing and I was about to come out of my pants. So after our tour we ate lunch at Grilla Bites which was a all organic place and it was very tasty. Then we went to a store called the Renaissance Rose. It was amazing and I got a beautiful blue masquerade mask that I am going to wear for Halloween. It was just too cool to pass up.

Fast forward to the evening where we saw Henry IV, Part 2 in the outdoor Shakespeare stage. The stage was beautiful and the show was pretty good. It was Shakespeare and I enjoyed seeing it and the actor that played Prince Hal was very convincing and very cute! So after 3 hours and a coronation later we drove back to our hotel. Earlier that day during the tour we had heard that most people who come see more than one show and we were thinking that maybe we should alter our plans and see another show. I was hoping that we could see The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere, but it wasn't playing for the matinee time slot. So we decided to go see an original play called Ghost Lights. Now let me tell you that I have not seen a more amazing play in a long time. It was absolutely believable and I cried along with the actors. It was about Jonathon Masccone who was the son of Mayor Masccone who was assassinated in San Francisco. In the play the main character was battling with the loss of his dad which happened when he was a teenager and directing Hamlet. This play opened many floodgates for him and it was amazing to watch it unfold. It is kinda hard to explain but you will have to trust me that it was absolutely breathtaking. At the end the cast got a standing ovation and the lead actress was crying. I could tell because I was in the second row. I loved it and I am so glad that we stayed an extra day.

So then we made our long drive up to Portland which is where we are now ready to begin our new adventure! Below are some pictures from my trip so far. Enjoy! Diva.

 These are the sutra baths that I went with Will to go see. These arent the baths but I just really like this picture.

Me on the coast of California in the middle of our crazy drive.

Woo! Ashland!

Chinatown, Hippies, and Friends

Song of the Day: I Got You by Leona Lewis

Highlight of the Day: spending time with my best friend.

As you can probably tell from the title, today was the big tourist day and we saw a ton of things and did even more walking. We took our little trip to Chinatown and once we passed through the gorgeous gate my mom and G-ma spotted a shop full of trinkets and scarves. 30 minutes later we emerged with chopsticks, scarves, statues, fans, and lanterns. Our next mission was finding the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. Our tour guide told us that they made tons of fresh cookies and that you could get them in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. After asking many people and walking through little streets we found a line of people waiting for fresh cookies. This cute little man walked through the line with a smile on his face and handed our WARM fortune cookies that were flat. They were so delicious. So we decided to buy chocolate and vanilla cookies with fortunes and ones that were flat without fortunes.

Our next point of interest was Haight-Ashbury which was where all the hippies used to live. We are talking REAL hippies, Janis Joplin was one, and it was pretty cool. There were tons of stores selling loose clothing from different parts of the world, tattoo parlors, and stores selling marijuana. We saw some pretty interesting people and enjoyed all the colors which made us them buy even more things. Bracelets, earrings, saris, and hippie shirts. So once we got back on the bus I headed off on my own to take the train back to Milbrae to spend the rest of the day with my dear friend Will. After talking to his mom and spending some time with Bandit we headed off toward the Sutro Baths on the Pacific Ocean. They are ruins of old salt water baths that are literally right on the ocean. There was an easy way to get day to the baths but according to Will that was the boring way to get down to the ocean. That was code for the SAFEST way to get there. Of course we took the route which required me to hop over a wall and try not to die on the dirt cliff that we were walking down. Once we safely made it down the baths were pretty cool and I even got to go into a cave. The cave was almost pitch black and thankfully Will went in front of me because he got to fall in all the little holes instead of me. Of course that was my evil plan all along! After the baths we drove around the outskirts of San Francisco trying to think of where we wanted to eat. After about 20 minutes we decided that we were going to eat back where he lived. It was a fun drive which consisted of tempting fate and try to get all the green lights and seeing where his grandma lived. After about 45 minutes of silliness the place where we going to eat was closed! Grrr. So we ate delicious pizza and hung out until I had to head back to my great uncle and aunt's house. It was one of the best days I have had all summer!

Next time you will all hear about our crazy trip by the ocean and seeing the Redwoods!
Love and Kisses, Diva.

The French Avant-Garde and Turtle shaped rolls

Song of the Day: Fade Into Me by David Cook

Highlights of the day:
~Meeting Will at the BART station and getting to see his mommy and ADORABLE puppy Bandit!
~Discovering the painting "Music" by Matisse. (There will be a story and a picture later in post.)
~Taco Food truck!
~Turtle-shaped bread
~Ice cream at Ghiradelli Square

Funniest moment you ask.....this picture right here <------------------------------

Let me tell you this story about this picture. My G-ma got us this bus tickets for a sight seeing bus in which you could hop-on-hop-off at different locations in the city and see all the main sites. This sounded like a great idea but ended up being kinda a pain in the butt. So we got on the bus at Union Square and then took it all the way the fisherman's wharf. The wharf was a typical fish place and was SUPER touristy. I mean on a Friday in a beautiful day in the summer there were tons of tourists everywhere but this was by far the worst. So we walked around and decided that we were going to have some bread from this factory called Boudin. That's where I got my turtle shaped bread! It's cute and I will put a picture up later. Then we decided all we cared about was chocolate so we walked towards Ghiradelli Square and found FREE chocolate...yumm and ice cream. By this time we had to walk back down to the wharf and catch the last bus tour back into the city. We got there in time and then had to wait for the bus to come. After three buses came and went that were the same color and company as the one we got off on they finally told us that we could get on one with an open top. As we were sitting in the top of the bright blue bus I looked up at the clear blue sky and noticed that there was the fog rolling into the city. I didnt think anything of it and enjoyed my ride for about 20 minutes. Then came the bus ride from hell, which brings us back to this picture. This is my mom and I on the top of the bus with tiny sweaters freezing our asses off. We got stuck in traffic for an hour and then it took another to get back into the city. Let me tell you I thought I was going to die. But it was pretty comical because my mom looked like a turtle.

OKAY. So now I am going to tell you the story I MADE UP about a painting that I saw in the exhibit at the SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art). The exhibit had paintings from Matisse and Picasso and was pretty cool but so NOT my style. Until I saw this painting I just knew that I had to give all of you what was going on during this painting. First I will give you a picture of the painting. Then as you are reading you can refer back to the painting.  I will be narrating it to you like I am a very snooty museum curator.
  Now this is Matisse's most priceless work "Music". I know what most of you are thinking that it has only one element of music but it doesn't matter. As most of you know an artist can do whatever the hell he wants and everyone will still think that it is the best thing in the whole entire world. However this painting is not about the man with incredibly short arms playing a tiny violin, this is about the two women sharing an intimate moment. Their names are Clarice and Jezebel. They have just found their new love and Matisse was their gay artist friend. He saw them hanging out at the park and told them that he would love to paint them free and friendly. So he told them to wear simple white dresses, let their hair blow in the breeze, and go at it for a solid hour. They had no problem since they were being allowed to express themselves when usually they were bring stiffled by their husbands who are the two naked men in the front of the picture. Matisse is making a statement encouraging women to embrace their natural desires and tear down the men in their lives. I am sure you have all heard of the saying when you are complaining that you could be playing the worlds smallest violin. This means that nobody cares about what you are feeling because you are a huge baby. Matisse is suggesting the first husband of the brunette, Clarice, is whining and Matisse basically told him "Wah"and that he should just be happy for his wife. The other man is just so embarassed that he just wants to disappear. What will his mother think when she finds out that his wife LOVES OTHER WOMEN! EGADS! Matisse was a big fan of women and this painting was basically the reason that women decided to burn their bras and rule the world. Women we owe everything we have to dear Matisse.

So I hoped that you enjoyed my interpretation! Tomorrow will be about hippies and chinese people and my time with dear William Crowley and Bandit!
Til tomorrow! Diva

A Diva's Adventure in BoyLand.

Song of the Day: Firework by Katy Perry

Today's post will be a story that I decided to write for all of your. I hope that you enjoy this very special post that I am doing for all of you.

Once upon a time there was this gorgeous Princess named Amelia. She was super talented in the arts and all the princes in the land wanted a chance to be able to dance next to her at the monthly balls. After one of her parties she decided that she didn't want to be a prince and decided to stroll the local market for a peasant boy. One of her friends told her that she should try meeting someone that she knew. So she decided that even though she had no idea what this peasant boy looked like she would give him a chance. So with the help of all of her friends she decided to go out and find the best dress to wear on her rendezvous with this peasant boy. So the night of, she got all dressed up and her friends told her that she looked absolutely stunning. When the carriage arrived she happily hopped on and drove the the local tavern where she was to meet the boy. The whole way there she was thinking about all of the things that could possibly happen. As she walked into the tavern she looked for the boy and saw him across the room and she gasped at way she saw. He was dressed as a wizard! A princess could never date a wizard, it was forbidden. Sadly he had seen her so she had to try her hardest not to be put under any spell. Thankfully he was the most boring wizard that he had ever met. She tried so hard to do everything that she had been taught in school. How to smile, how to seem interested, and most importantly how to graciously decline meeting with someone.
"I'm sorry, but as I am princess I can't really be with someone like you. Another peasant might like you but me I think I will stick with my balls and my princes, even though they can be crazy." Princess Amelia waved to her servant and she quickly ran to her carriage. As soon as she was inside she let out a huge laugh and was automatically grateful that she didn't fall under the spell of the wizard. When she got back to the palace late that night she called all of her friends into her room. She told them the story about her night and they all laughed and she told them. "I will never be ungrateful for what I have. Ever."
So the princess went to her next party with the brightest dress she had ever worn. They played her favorite song, she danced all night, and she most certainly will live happily ever after.

Aryan poster child and Top Castings

Song of the Day: E.T. by Katy Perry

So I have had a pretty interesting couple of days. I was at the gym the other day minding my own business when one of the personal trainers decided that he was going to talk to me. I was right in the middle of watching Maury and I was kinda annoyed that he bothered me and my T.V. show. He started to ask me how long I had been going to the gym and I told him every day (go me!) and that made him look stupid because he said that he had never seen me there before. I laughed in my head and gave myself a mental point. He then asked me if I had gotten my free consultation and I said no so he decided that I should have mine. So I followed him to the little tables and had a whole conversation with him about losing weight. He also asked me what I do and he tried to get me to do a British accent when I told him that I was a Theatre major. I did one and then he tried to do one as well and it was preeetty bad. Then he decided that he wanted to test my strengths so he gave me the hardest workout I have had in my life. My whole body hurt and at the end he told me that it was SUPER expensive so I told him that I would have to ask my parents and I tried to get out of there as fast as I could. Before I could leave though he had taken my keys and when I tried to get them back he wouldn't give them back. I just looked at him and pretended to be amused and then he finally gave them back. Then I got into my car and laughed hysterically. Little Aryan Poster Child tried to get this Latina Mama. No. Freaking. Way. 

Next on the agenda is the fact that I joined a casting company. I had recently submitted my picture and resume for a Lane Bryant print ad and they said they loved my picture and that they were going to submit me for it. It is pretty exciting and everyday I get to learn about castings and submit myself for as many as I want. I think it is a good opportunity and it makes me super excited. 

NOW....3 and a half weeks until we leave for the West Coast and a little over a month until I get to be in two weddings! Until next time...

You're from a whole other world, a different dimension...Diva

Living in Limbo

Song of the moment: Someone Like You by Adele

So here I am waiting in Limbo. I am currently counting down the days til I have something to do and somewhere to go. I have exactly 28 days til I will be leaving for the West Coast on my adventure with my mum and g-ma. Until then I am stuck at home where I can't work or dance or anything really except work out and unpack my room. Both of these things are great things to do but I am getting a little tired of it. Plus today was pretty bad because I don't have anything from Netflix and although I got one of the Seasons of Friends it was the next one so I have to wait for Season 8. I already watched 4 seasons of 30 Rock. I read 3 books and I am halfway through the 4th one. I have two more that I have to read but I know that that they wont take long to get through. Sigh.

The good thing about today was that I just got some really good advice from two people today. One was from a woman who I look up to so much. She told me that I fully capable of anything that I put my mind to and that she knows that I will be blessed no matter what I do. Thanks momma Hilary! The other person was my friend Lacey who I haven't talked to in forever. I love this girl soo much and we have had some great times. When I was complaining (she didn't know that though) about my life she was like "well I guess this is a good time to reflect upon your life at Prin". I thought hmm, I haven't really done that. It was just a simple statement but it just made me realize that I should be giving way more gratitude than I am doing right now. So here does one HUGE gratitude fest.

Tonight it will be for one group of people. My theatre family. After my audition at Disney and applying for my first job at a charter school teaching dance (cross fingers), it has made me realize that without all of you I would never be where I am today. You have made me loved and cared for and when I thought that I was going to be single my whole life, you told me that I am worth it and that nobody is thinks you are more beautiful than you. You made me laugh at all the stupid that you did from putting that stupid doll in dressing room and scaring the crap out of me, filming dramatic videos under a spotlight, playing improv games, watching movies, rocking out at dances, belting musical songs at the top of our lungs, and always getting naked. You also made my cry from laughing too hard, from all the times that you hugged me when I was upset, when I had to leave all of you, and right now as I am giving gratitude and remembering the good times. You all have truly changed my life and I would not be the person that I am today because of you. I don't need to name names but you know who you are. Even if we weren't the best of friends I have loved getting to know and grow with you.

God Adele, why are your songs to amazing. Seriously check out Someone Like You. Ladies, Kendi and Kirsty, you guys should know that this song is how I felt that one night when we were all a wreck. That's probs why I am crying so much. Auuh. Anyways, thats the first of my gratitude.
For now...
Only yesterday was the time of our lives...Diva

Wake up call

Song of the day: All that I'm asking for by Lifehouse

So as some of you may know I went down to Disney World in Florida 3 days ago. It was wuite the trip. I had to get up early on Sunday morning and drive 10 hours by myself. I didn't mind the drive because I got to think and listen to an awesome book on tape. Incarceron was it's name and I got so excited one time that I almost drove off the road. Whoops. Anywho...I got done to the Schiffli's house and quickly went to sleep.
In the morning I woke up at 6 and started to get ready for my audition which had a sign in time of 8. This meant that I had to leave the house no later than 7:15 so that I could get a good spot. So I got there at 8:05 and after looking in the wrong place 2 times I finally found where I was supposed to sign in. Now there are many things that I had thought about that audition and how I thought that it was going to turn out. Let me tell you that everything was WRONG.
ONE: I thought that it wouldn't be too crowded because how many dancers really seriously wanted to dance at Disney.
~~~~There were around 200 dancers there at the auditions and all of them were crazy flexible and had their game faces on.
SECOND: I thought that because it was Disney they would look past things like physical appearance and notice the talent and passion you had because it is Disney and thats where dreams come true.
~~~~I know I am not amazing but I didn't even make it past the first round. The choreography wasn't hard at all and I did it well, BUT they had a certain type that they were looking for. Oh well.
THIRD: I thought that because I was kinda a big shot in college that OF COURSE I would be an obvious choice for Disney.
~~~~Everyone had big shots and think the same thing. I met a ROCKETTE, who was super nice, but still a freaking Rockette. There was no way I could compete with that.

So you can imagine that I was thinking what the heck am I doing here. So as I put back on my regular shoes, took off my number, and drove away from the rehearsal facility, I started to call the number of people who wanted to hear from me as soon as the audition was over. I told them all the news and they told me great things such as, "When one door closes, 10 more open", "Your fabulous and I love you", "Guess you will doing Haunted Houses", "There is always Chicago!" (that last one made me laugh). At the end of the phone calls I decided to go to Downtown Disney to just look at all the happy people at Disney and figure out what I was going to do with the rest of my day. I decided to go home that day instead of sitting at the house and waiting til tomorrow. Around noon I was back on the road making the 10 hour trip back home. Even though this meant that I was driving 20 hours in two days, I knew that it was totally worth it. It gave me time to think about my life and I came to some conclusions.

One: I LOVE dancing and I am just going to have to take more classes and kick my own butt.
Second: I was meant to go to that audition so that I could get a wake up call and realize I need to be doing things EVERYDAY to get better.
Third: I don't ever want to be a bum.
Lastly: I have the BEST friends in the world.

So I am going to take on the world one step at a time just like Chandler did the day of his wedding to Monica so that he wouldn't freak out and run away. Next kinda secret but I hope that Jay is excited. Til next time...
All that I'm asking for is that you need nothing more...Diva

Just keep swimming...

Rolling in the deep by Adele

Yesterday my family and I, plus Trishie my brother's girlfriend, went on a spur of the moment trip down to Chattanooga, TN. The drive wasn't too long, only 2 hours, in which I spent reading Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. It is supposed to be a very good book and movie so I am excited to get through it. When we got there the sun was shining and it was a very HOT temperature of 94. The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga is pretty big and is a large brick building with glass triangles on the top for the habitats that are on the roof. After getting our tickets we walked over to the Ocean Journey building. In between the two buildings is a little river made by cement in which tons of little kids were splashing around in. I miss those days when I could just run around without any pants on and play in the little stream. Sadly I now must have this thing called decorum. Pity.
As we took the escalator up to the top floor and into where we could pet sting rays. It was cool and I loved watching the little kids go crazy when they got to touch their slick, soft skin. Watching Trisha touch them was funny as well. After we tried to touch all of the fish we went into the Butterfly Garden which made me super excited. I LOVE Butterflies. There were so many of them with so many different colors patterns including one that was mostly black except for two small pink heart shaped patterns on her back. She was definitely my favorite. I also got to hold one which was amazing. Apparently the butterflies loved me because one as landed on my back when I was trying to get a picture of a black and blue butterfly. We spent a long time in there because Shea really wanted to catch one. From there we moved inside to the tanks where they had all the types of animals that live in an ocean and TONS of jellyfish tanks.
Then we walked over to the River Journey building which was what I remembered when I was in the 2nd grade, the last time I went to the aquarium. First, you go to the top of the building and work your way all the way down through the different levels. We saw turtles, otters, snakes, seahorses, trout, catfish, manta-rays, and so much more. After we were done with both aquariums we walked over to the Imax theatre to watch a movie about the Ultimate Wave. It was a movie about surfing and the ocean in Tahiti. Shea loved it and I have to admit it was pretty cool. Our next stop was then the River Gorge Explorer. It was a super fast boat that took us down the Tennessee River to see the wildlife and take a trip on a fast boat down the river. It was fun and crazy. The boat could go up to 50 mph super fast and because of some cool technology it lifted out of the water. The not cool part was that when it stopped, it stopped fast and lowered back into the water super fast. That freaked a lot people out at first but then we all got used to it.
When we made it back to shore, we all went to eat at Cheeburger Cheeburger. By the time we were down eating we were super tired. Shea, Trisha, and I slept the whole way home. When we got home I stayed up and watched some 30 Rock, but at 11 I crashed. It was a great day to bond with my family.
Today I am off to the Opry Land Hotel to take my HEADSHOTS!!! cant wait!
Til tomorrow.

Don't underestimate the things I will do...Diva

Senior year in a Nutshell

Song of the Day: Born this Way by Lady Gaga

So...long time no see. Last time you heard from me it was after my first audition for Tartuffe, which was the first day of Senior year. Today is two days AFTER I have GRADUATED from college. It is so crazy! I am just sitting at home in a blazing hot house, because the air conditioning is BROKEN, waiting for something to strike my fancy. It is day one and I think I am already bored. Great. BUT here is what happened to me senior year...CLIFF NOTES version!

Tartuffe: Got the PART! woot. I started off the show and I killed it. Best Cast. Best Director. Period.
Dance Production: AMAZING! Choreographer. El Tango de Roxanne. Prostitution. Really intense dancing/touching/things that make my dad want to SHOOT my dance partner.
Theatre house: BEST PEOPLE EVER!
A Tale of Two Cities: JEEEERRRRYYYYY! Got a featured chorus role opposite one of my favorite men. First collegiate show of the musical. Met the writer! ACTF guy loved my screaming. Check.
Chekhov Technique: LIFE-CHANGING. So much crying. So much growing. Love that class.
Friends in general: I love ALL of them so much and its crazy to think two of them are getting married in August. Make that FOUR of them are getting married in August.

It was an amazing year and that doesn't even sum it up in the slightest. BUT I am excited for my next adventure! In less than a week I will be auditioning to be a dancer at..............DISNEY! Best thing ever! So on June 13 I will be spreading my wings and flying towards my career and hoping that all ends well.

So today I am going to be going to the library and getting some books on tape for my 10 hours drive down to Orlando. There is also a haircut in my future and you know what that means.
HEADSHOTS!!!!!! New ones for my audition on Monday. So many things to do. Oh and did I mention that I have to unpack all of my things my college. My room is so small and I have so much stuff. Plus I have to figure out where to put a 4x4 painting of me and Dana. Good times. Well I'm off for now.
Baby I was born this way...Diva
