Random Day

Today (well, technically yesterday but hey, I’m still up) is the anniversary of 9/11.  We all know that.  I’m not sure if I’m thankful that I remember where I was and what I was doing on that day or not.  I talked to someone today who made the comment that while she still thinks it’s terrible, it didn’t have the same impact on her as she was in 5th grade and didn’t really understand what was happening.  It’s strange knowing what I know now and seeing the hatred and violence that is sparked from fear and lack of understanding.  It’s more than a little sad.  I am a religious person and it is painfully obvious that these are the tools used by Satan to upset God’s plan for his children.  In and of itself, that’s not a problem.  The problem is that we choose to let these tools to destroy ourselves and each other.  Anyway, I think I am glad I remember it because it is a life moment I will never forget.  What happened then and what it means to me, then and now.

Also, three great quotes today:

In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying.
  - Bertrand Russell

A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.
  - Anonymous

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.
  - Oscar Wilde

In other news, 1) I got extensions.  I LOVE them!  Pictures to come soon!  2) My family went to see the traveling production of The Lion King tonight at the Capitol Theater.  Freaking amazing show!  And afterward, our friend Anthony (who plays a gazelle, hyena, grass, dancer, etc) took us on a backstage tour!!!  Pictures to come of that too… They may or may not be contraband… :D

Two Months… Ok, Nearly Three Months Late

My cousin Lauren tagged me in a blog post well, nearly three months ago and even took the trouble of leaving me a message to check her blog because I was tagged.  I feel a little sheepish to admit it, but I didn’t really check it until recently.  For a minute though let’s be honest, I don’t even take the time to write for my blog, let alone read all of the blogs I can’t get fed into my Google Reader.  In any case, here we go.  10 current things about me to share.

I bought a condo.  It is awesome and I LOVE it!  I finally got my living area put together so now it’s onto the guest bed/bathroom so I can rent it out and make some money on it.  That’s the idea anyway.  :)

My life is a mad house.  I am trying to do marketing, be a makeup artist, look for a career path I want to take, be a good employee at our office and get my house put together.  All while I would rather be outside in the sunshine… Well, it was sunny at one point.

I am getting extensions.  I think it will be fun having super long hair again.  It probably won’t be like that for a super long time, but I am excited anyway.  (Pictures to follow… At some point.)

I am back in voice lessons!  I love doing vocal training!  I always seem to learn so much about myself when I sing.  I also discover loads of emotional issues that need working on, but that’s to be expected I guess.  In any case, I am really enjoying it!

I am trying to get back into the swing of things and get into more shows.  I auditioned for The Drowsy Chaperone but I didn’t get in, so I’m going to audition for Christmas Carol.  I would like to perform again.  I miss it and I think I’m good at it, so I’ll just keep auditioning.  :)

I really like teaching.  This is an entirely new and seriously weird thing for me.  I taught as part of a kid’s summer theater program this summer and LOVED it!  I think I may be moving in that direction in the near future.  Who knows.  Unfortunately, I’m pretty limited on what I can teach, so then again it may be a while yet.

I am pretty amazing at throwing baby showers.  I’m just saying.  If you want a fun baby shower that isn’t too game oriented and still leaves everyone feeling like they participated and had a great time, I am the one to throw your shower.  Also, I am super awesome at decorating.  ;)

I work at a haunted house.  It’s way fun to do the makeup out there, but I hate being scared.  I won’t even go through the show and I KNOW everyone in it!  It’s kind of weird, but we can just look past the irony there and move on.  If you like haunted houses you should totally come through though!  :D

I am a quarter of a century old.  It’s not as bad as I was worried it would be.  Actually, as it turns out I really don’t care much how old I am.  I have done some pretty cool things in my life and I’m going to do a lot more.  Hooray for me!

One of my favorite things EVER is go get flowers.  For an occasion or randomly.  I love it all!  Even though some people think it’s a waste because they just die eventually, I think they are beautiful and they can cheer anything up.  They also usually smell nice and they make people happy.  They also don’t make me get fat… Like candy does.  Moving on.  My favorite flowers are snap dragons, lilacs, and daisies.  I really love getting any flowers, but those are the best.  Roses are amazing too!  I got a really great bouquet of roses and hydrangea from my awesome friend Jen recently and an amazing 2 dozen long stem red roses from my parents as a thank you.

The beautiful bouquet from Jen (not my picture, but a good representation)

Also not my picture… Pretty though!

Anyway, that’s it for this blog.  I love everyone so whoever wants to do this (if anyone) you are it.  Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to bed now.
