I just thought I'd let everyone know I'm still alive. I'm probably not going to be writing here much anymore, if you haven't noticed but I'm going to try and check my friends entry page a lot more often from now on.
I still can't keep up! I'm really sorry. I did try for about a day to keep up with my friends page if not my journal itself. As you all know I failed. Some parts of LJ are being blocked by the parental controls on one computer and all of it is blocked on the other, the only way I can see everything is by getting one of my parents to log me onto my regular account. Which is hard to do. I'm going to talk to my mom about getting LJ unblocked on both of my parental controls accounts so wish me luck! I miss talking to people who know what I'm talking about!
On a happier note I have discovered a new series I love. Anyone read Twilight? It's amazing! Though the Werewolf is really annoying. However Alice, one of the vampires, is really great, and for once the main character is someone I really like! Oh, and I'm going to make a prom dress for next year based on one from the book. I hope to start keeping up with everyone soon.
Yikes! bratty_jedi tagged me for the 5 by 5 Favorite Music Meme. I'll do my best but my favorite music changes almost every day with a few exceptions.
Rules of the game:
- list your top five favorite musical artists.
- list your top five favorite songs from each artist.
- tag five people to do the same.
Hayley Westenra (she has been one of my favorites since I was thirteen so I don't think that's going to change any time soon)
Dell'amore no si sa
May It Be (her version is, if possible, better than Enya's)
Beat Of Your Heart
Who Painted the Moon Black?
With A Little Help From My Friends
She Loves You
A Hard Day's Night
Englishman In New York
The Book of My Life
Fortress Around Your Heart
Behind Blue Eyes
Boris The Spider (this should be Ron's theme song!)
Only Hope (this is the original version)
Adding To The Noise
Not sure if that's really true but it's as close as it's going to get!
Now I'm going to tag: bjolly4ever, wielderbeatzero, thraceaddicted, </font></a></font></a>da_angel729
I know I said I would update a few days ago, but I got the flu and almost fainted during my concert on Tuesday.
However I do have some important things to tell you. I'm making a short film about Fans for the "Art of Partnership" category in a local youth film festival. The plot is about a group of super heroes known as the "Fan Girls". So part of what I want to happen in the movie is that the we have to get as much help as possible(this is the big climax of the story) so one of the 'Fan Girls' goes online to ask for help. I was hopping that some of you would be willing to post a response to that entry pretending it's real. Anyone willing to give it a try? It will probably be next weekend (I have to work out all the details with my co-producer first).
Any way have a happy Valentine's day!

OK so I really haven't been anywhere, I just have been avoiding the computer because I can't handle the distractions it provides. However I'm going to try and balance it and school work. Wish me luck.
I really need to go to sleep now however so I'll be back tomorrow.
All hope is lost! So today my mom said that I could go to New York, but over spring break not this year. I was naturally upset as even I knew there was no way they where going to stay on Broadway that long, they do have other things to do. So I went to see if I could find out how long they would be on Broadway so I could try and convince her to let me go earlier, only to discover that I've been all worked up over nothing, because Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp are only going to be there until October anyway and there is absolutely no way I can get there before then, I mean it was a stretch to get there before then end of the year. And if they aren't there then there isn't any point in going, I might was well wait for the tour to make it's way to the west coast like I did for Wicked.
If only I had seen it when it first came out, waiting is the only reason I'm in this situation. If I'd seen it when I first heard about it I would have known about this with plenty of time to plan, I could have come up with a way to save for the trip instead of spending so much money when I was in England. But it's no use now, I can't do anything about it no mater how much I wish I could. IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!!! There I said it. Sure it's childish, but I won't apologize for it, it's how I feel and I can't change that, no mater how much more difficult it makes things. I just wish I could go.
I am totally addicted to RENT now. I didn't think it would be that great even though people kept telling me how wonderful it was. Boy was I ever wrong. I thought it would be weird because all the descriptions of it make it sound really weird. But it turns out that as soon as I sat down I got so into the characters I didn't even notice it. And the music is amazing!
Out of all the characters I probably relate to Mimi the most. She can be very outgoing but she really is quite vulnerable when it comes to emotions. I really relate to the way she reacts when Roger leaves, I can understand that feeling of abandonment.
Oh and I've found out that two of the original cast members are on Broadway for RENT right now. I really want to see it but it's all the way in New York and even if I could get there tickets are impossibly expensive (at least for my budget). I'm working on a plan to try and talk my mom into taking me over Christmas but it probably won't work. We're suppose to be at Lake Tahoe then anyway. But I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to go! So wish me luck on my doomed quest.
Sorry it took me so long to update by the way, my internet has been down and I couldn't get on the computer yesterday until it was to late for me to write anything even remotely coherent.
By the way is anyone even reading these? If you are please just leave a comment saying so, it would be wonderful to know if anyone is actually listening.
Isn't it wonderful how the little things in life can make you so HAPPY sometimes? Like the mail. The mail can be such a wonderful thing sometimes. Today in the mail my copy of the July/August issue of Cicada got here (and I don't really care that much that it's a month late all of a sudden), as did a post card for Alyssa in Virginia. She chose one with a picture of a black statue of a guy dressed in robes for me because she said it reminded her of Darth Vader (she also said that she wanted to climb the statue, the packages of colorful, striped noodles they sell at the cheese shop made her very exited and no she hasn't met anyone named Rachael). I was very disappointed about the last bit because I think bratty_jedi would get along very well with Alyssa.
She also mentioned that she thinks her sister was racing me to see who finished the Harry Potter book first. So far I've finished before anyone else I've talked to. Except maybe Isabel but that's not fair because she lives in Ohio and there weren’t as many people at her release party so she got the book like six HOURS before I did. Therefore, if we do it by number of hours I have a much better chance. I'll have to ask her that when I call her today.
Also I am very happy because my baby brother was really sweet and bought me a croissant when he stopped to get a sandwich on his way back from swimming. I LOVE croissants almost as much as I love Jelly Bellys, pepperoni and black olive pizza (especially Greek style), and Peanut butter Cups.
This was a pretty pointless entry wasn't it? Oh well, I'm on vacation; you can't expect me to take anything to seriously. I'm more likely to take it Sirius-ly! OK lame pun I know but I can't help it. That's enough silliness; I'm off to take a shower and head to the library, TTFN!
PS. or maybe I'll just sit here and be lazy. That sounds like a very good idea right now.
I'm bored. The french student who was staying with us left yesterday morning and the dog I was pet sitting went home yesterday evening and my friend Ella slept over last night but she's gone now too. And my mom's at work and I'm still mad at my brother for being nasty about video games yesterday (though I will have to fogive him as he is designing and building a lightsaber for me, he just came in with a drawing of one of the ones he's going to make). I do have lots of books to read but I don't feel like reading about royalty right now and I'm afraid to read Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice because of the way some people reacted to it. Oh and my friend are all doing stuff as far as I know. Alyssa is in Virginia for a camp kind of thing at William and Mary. And my dad has done nothing but make fun of me for the past week so I really don't want to talk to him. So here are my choices:
A) work on typing up and re writing the story I started in eighth grade and see if I can continue it
B) Work on my still unfinished Metamorphic moon fic
C) Work on my Spy story
D) Read Sacrifice anyway
E) Go play Knights of the Old Republic
F) Start my re-read of the Harry Potter series (still not sure I can do that without bursting into tears)
And with all these choices I'm am going to have to go with the least constructive, the video game. I can't help it, it's fun!

WARNING: if you haven't finished Deathly Hallows don't read any further!
Remus and Tonks didn't deserve that. They where finally happy! They didn't get to see every thing they had fought so hard for come true. And Teddy is now going to grow up without any parents, just his grandmother and godfather.
My mom says I shouldn't take it so hard but Lupin has been a really big part of my life since I was eight years old, and Tonks has been a sort of alter ego for me since I was twelve. She represented everything I want to be in a way. I just don't know how I can not 'take it hard'.
