"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 have so much on my plate right now. My to do list (in no particular order):
-English book report
-Spanish book report
-Spanish project
-Bio project
-Bio test
-Bio homework
-Other homework
-Practice/learning lines for Crazy for You
-Practice/learning lines for one act
-College shit

The stress is getting to me, I have to admit, plus I'm still fucking sick, after months, even though it's just a little. I've resorted to odd methods to try and numb whatever this is that seems to be getting to me. So after today I've determined that taking Sudafed, Benadryl, and Tylenol at the same time is not a good thing. A lot of today is a bit of a haze already, and I guess I was acting a little odd today. Oh well. Sorry if I did anything stupid, I guess.

Oh, and I had to add this ).
It took me all of three seconds to do, but a few of you know what I mean by one comment. See, in Rent while they're on the subway singing "Santa Fe" there's this guy sitting there that looks just like my ex's dad. It's kinda creepy.
