I went to my first acting/musical class on Monday. We only have eight people in the group, and usually you have to have 12 or the class is cancelled, but hopefully, we'll still be able to make it go. I really we can, because it sounds like it would be a whole lot of fun. We'll be able to sing duets, play out scenes from musical, mess around with songs, work on theatrical numbers and presence on stage... everything an actress like me needs. It also sounds like its going to be a pretty go-with-the-flow, play-by-ear, have fun type class. This is what I've been looking for! Something fun and musical. So yeah, I really hope it ends up going. Please. *crosses fingers*
I finished The Mark of Athena today and just about had a heart attack. I set the book down all calm, went about my life like I wasn't scarred, acted normal. Then it hit. And suddenly I was emotionally freaked. First I was like
Then I was like
WHY PERCY WHY???
I made Myself breathe. *relax, relax...* BREATHE!
I can't breathe, I'm DYING! DYING!! Did you not just read what happened to Annabeth? What Percy Did?? this is not okay! This is never gonna be okay!!
So then when I had to munch on chocolate and wish I didn't have so many depressing stories in my life. Even my book are getting hard. Why am I drawn to heartbreak? Why can't I find something that doesn't make you want to cry? Or scream? Or want to flail and run into a wall? WHERE IS THE HOUSE OF HADES????
I took my almost-three year old niece out yesterday and we collected and cracked several bowls of pine nuts. Its been a very long time since I've actually spent ours with shells between my fingernails, so when I woke up this morning I had this strange tingling. In my fingers. You know that funny feeling you get when you've been breaking nuts all day? It feels prickly and tender. Kind of like when you take to the monkey bars after months of winter. Only its pine nuts and finger tips. But it was worth it, because today Sammy -my niece- knows how to crack nuts between her teeth. "look auntie Bella! look what I can do!!" I watched her crack that nut, and even with my tender fingers I was pleased. I'm the best aunt ever :)
Also, I am currently making fandom pictures for my pins and should have pictures by the end of the week. Don't judge me. I've been busy with Algebra and tests and the basics of professional public speaking. I haven't had a LOT of time for fandom pins. BUT I WILL FINISH THEM! And soon!
Okay.... I'm sort of have no news left. And we are watching a highly amusing Leverage and laughing at Elliot's violent cooking. So now, I will say goodnight and have a good time with my favorite thief team. Stay tuned, I'll be back!!
