I decided it's time to write this. I have been composing an entry on myself and my inner workings for some time now, and now seems to be the perfect time to actually sit down and put it into fruition.

I realize that this is very TL;DR for a lot of you, so I at least split it up into segments.

Not feeling so hot right now.  The worst part, though, is I can't figure out why.  It's been hot here the past few days (it hit the nineties yesterday and today).  We got new windows put in yesterday, which required moving a lot of furniture, which brought up a lot of dust, which has made my allergies go batshit.  And on top of that, my Dermatologist put me on new meds, since the Minocyclene wasn't really doing the job, and this new stuff (Bactrim), is a Sulfonamide, which can cause some pretty serious side effects, and a lot of people are allergic to it.  The worst part is, most of the people who have allergies don't show any signs of them until they've been on the meds for at least two weeks, which sucks.  I just have to take them for now and hope I don't break out in hives a few weeks from now.

I've got a lot of new music, mostly from random fanmixes people have posted.  I should upload some of my new favorites.

Evanna Lynch makes me love Luna Lovegood even more.  Her voice is so cute.  Having an Irish Luna is so perfect.
So, I have decided to do a friends cut. Don't worry, about 90% of you are staying. The only people I'm getting rid of are those who aren't on LJ anymore, people who I don't know (or forgot who they are), and people who have locked me out of their entries anyway.

Basically, if you care enough to be reading this and still know who the heck I am, chances are you're staying. If I did cut you and you wanted to stay, feel free to comment on this entry and I'll let you back in I guess.
My cat is staring at me.  Not like regular staring, a death glare.  I really don't know why.  I keep telling her to stop, but it isn't working.

I'm sick again.  Stomach, migraines, body aches, general yuck.  My anxiety and paranoia are worse than ever.  Ugh.  I think it's a cabin fever-like reaction.

I miss high school.  I had unlimited access to my friends.  Now I feel like everyone's so unaccessible and  they're all too busy to talk to me or hang out with me.

On a better note, I might be getting a new car soon.  My current one has been giving me a lot of problems, with the wheels and the brakes, and now the AC's busted.

I have been watching House non-stop for the past forever.  No, I lied, I watched Family Guy yesterday, and I'm watching Will and Grace right now.  But I have been watching a whole bunch of House.  Basically I'm hoping that watching that much will get my creative juices flowing and might get me to start writing again.
Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
- Underline a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

Too much TV! )
So, adding injury to insult, I fell today on the way back from anatomy, and ended up having to go to the emergency room. Luckily my wrist is sprained, not broken, and I have to wear a brace for a few weeks.
Why is it that showtunes can make even the shittiest, ugliest days so bright and pretty?
Something about 19 is just so odd. I mean, I'm not a kid anymore, but I'm not really a "grown-up" either. That term has never really sat well with me, considering I was fully grown by the time I was twelve. Nineteen is nothing. I can already vote, smoke, and (pay to) see boobies, and I still can't buy my own booze for another two years. Big deal.
I'm 19. It's so weird saying that. I know all the Rentheads on my FL have "Light My Candle" stuck in their heads now.

In other news, I got my laptop back, but with a new hard drive, so I have spent the past few days setting it back up again. My mother severed her Achilles tendon and has a cast on her left leg. The doctor said it could be on anywhere from six weeks to six months, and after that she'll have to wear an ankle brace for the rest of her life. She's been trying to get used to it, but she's still having a hard time.
Saw Clerks 2 at noon, the first showing available in Millbury. Pretty sure there were only about four girls in the entire theater, which was pretty funny. Amazing movie, I must say. It was probably the only sequel I've even seen that made mention of the past without being the least bit cheezy. I am going to be seeing it again, probably a few times in the next few weeks, at least once with the commentary Kevin's supposed to be putting up on Monday.

I named my laptop. His name is Mark Cohen, Marky for short.
Jay-Zeezer.com is very amusing.
Just so everyone knows, I got my AP Bio results today.

I got a )
This is so surreal.
It's too early
I'm not ready for this
I'm not ready to say goodbye
This can't be over this soon
Took the last of my finals today.
Derek's graduation Saturday and party Monday.
Then class trip, rehearsals, class night, graduation, and bon voyage party.

And then it's all over.

"There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today"

Merry Rentmas bitches!
Ten years ago today, a great show opened on Broadway. This show embodied not only the spirit of a generation, but also the voice of a culture. It not only addressed the issue of AIDS in society, but also homosexuality, homelessness, and gender roles in society. It dealt with love and loss in the East Village of New York, touching on many subjects thought to be taboo in the stage world. The characters were diverse: Mark, a Jewish filmmaker; Roger, his former junkie rockstar loftmate; Benny, a Bohemian-turned yuppie; Maureen, the filmmaker's ex-girlfriend, a performance artist, and her lover Joanne, a black lesbian lawyer; Collins, a gay philosophy professor, and his lover, a charismatic transgender street performer named Angel; and Mimi, a smack-addicted S&M dancer. This modern interpretation of La Boheme touched the lives of so many, including myself.

I now consider myself a Rentitarian (Larsonian, Order of St. Collins). We are a group that follows the gospel according to Rent. Today is Rentmas, the holiest day of our calendar.

More information about the show, including its history can be found here and here.

Thank you, Jonathan Larson. These truly have been 5,256,000 minutes of love.

I did it!

I went through with Day of Silence after all. Really, it was quite liberating not speaking for an entire day. I only made one slip-up, but I caught myself pretty quickly. Overall, I am very proud of myself, and I count this as a personal triumph.
I cried so much yesterday. It was so odd seeing everyone bawling (especially Dave!). I gave out so many hugs. We were all a mess, the music room was FULL of tissues afterwards and we had to start 15 minutes late to pull ourselves together. Meghan gave all the seniors really cute decorated frames with our pictures in them and special messages. It was really sad and happy at the same time. The cast party was a blast, music and karaoke, then we had an impromptu afterparty at Heather's with another game of Spin the Bottle (not the entire cast this time, maybe about a dozen or so of us), then off to Nathanael's for the senior sleepover. We watched Ten Things I Hate About You and started Sin City, went to sleep about 4 and woke up around 9 and played hooky. We went to IHOP in Shrewsbury and then they were going to go play baseball, but I came back here to do some work (which I am yet to do! EEP!)

I'll post pictures from the last few days when Photobucket decides to cooperate.
I'm doing this now, before I leave, because I'm not going to be back for probably another 24 hours.

This afternoon is my last show ever. I woke up crying, and I still am. I'm an absolute mess. I never want this show to end, because that means it's all over. The time I've spent with the theater kids has been the best I've had in my entire life. I seriously don't know where I'd be without all of you. I doubt I'd even be around if it weren't for the stage. This is by far one of the hardest days of my life, having to say goodbye to this forever. So much has happened to me because of theater, good and bad, and I am forever indebted to all of you for being yourselves and being so great. I love all of you more than anything in the world, and I'm serious.

Goodbye theater. I'm going to miss you.
Tonight was amazing.

I love you all.

And the stupid thing I was gonna do? Put off until tomorrow (I hope)
