Merry Freakin' Christmas!!

Despite the title, this Holiday was actually pretty good.

Also, before I go on, Happy Holidays/Solstice/Christmas/etc, etc. Hope you had fun if you celebrated! And if you did not.... well that sucks.

Anyway, my mom and I ended up going to my aunt's house for Christmas eve, which was pretty damn entertaining. Since it was also my cousin's birthday, we were celebrating double. So there was cake, extra-presents and lots of pictures. Also, lots of candles on aforementioned cake- which was hilarious!

After the cake (which was delicious) and after the paparazzi hit, people got to open presents. This was mainly for the younger ones, who got lots of presents! I really hope my little cousin liked the monster truck I gave him! He was all happy with all the new toys and games he got! It was so refreshing to see someone who hasn't gotten this holiday ruined for them and that everything is so shiny and new, still. It literally put a smile on my face.

Like this: : )

I was also able to give my mom the little dolphin necklace I bought her. I was so happy I actually was able to give gifts to people this year! Normally, I can't even give anything to anyone 'cause I'm broke as hell, but this year (although i am now a bit stretched, money-wise) I was able to buy stuff for people! Haha!

Afterwards, we were coerced into playing Loteria for like three hours. I made and lost like five bucks and then recovered two. My cousin, however, made like eleven bucks! That kid is gosh damned lucky! Haha! Like I told him, when I buy a business, he's going to run it. Lol

Later, when we got home, I got to open the rest of my presents- which were awesome. In total (so far), I've gotten a beautiful watch, a stainless steel Swiss army knife, a Remington electric shaver, a set of Lady Gaga buttons, a thermal shirt, and a Fifteen dollar Spencer's girt card. I love em all! : ) I haven't raked in this much during Christmas since I was like ten! I especially liked the shaver and the knife! And my mom got me the watch as a way to remember her when I go away to New York or wherever I transfer to. It was so sweet. : )

Well anyways, I just wanted to wish all of my readers a Merry Solstice or whatever you guys and girls celebrate!

Have a great day and hope you open lots of presents! : )

Be My Poland, Please?

Oh dear. I've neglected my blog for so long! : o

It's been so long since I posted! Last time I did so it was four days before my birthday...

Which went great, by the way. Thank you for asking. Even though you did not ask. Haha! But yeah, my actual birthday landed on a Wednesday so I was unable to celebrate my birthday on the day it landed. I had to go to class. Which wasn't too bad. Afterwards I hung out with one of my best friends and went out to eat, so it ranks pretty high in the birthday scale. Later on, on Friday during my acting class Livie brought cupcakes to celebrate Ivan and my birthday, on which we gorged until I was as sugar-high as a five-year-old left unchecked in a candy store. I'm not kidding on how sugar-high I was. Then, on Saturday, my and my friends went to go watch Burlesque, which is a really good movie. mainly because of the music, but I digress. It was money well spent, until the people behind us started talking and I had to regulate. But it went well. : )

Finals were a certifiable disaster. Right after my birthday week, finals started. I had three essays to write, which I did. I had to bust some serious miracles to finish my paper on Celtic mythology and had to turn in my final essay late. I worked some magic (out of my seriously depleted magic bag) to finish my analyzation of Machiavelli's "The Prince" in one night. I had some serious sleepless nights. The first night I had no sleep, a final and then no sleep again. Up until Sunday, I was not afforded decent sleep. The only good thing about that week was my meetings with my group. Lol! They were awesome. : )

First off, on Monday, I took a few hours off to meet them and go costume shopping. The entire event was fruitless and we found nothing (except my Halloween costume for next year, but that's next year. Lol) but it was so much fun! And then on Thursday we met to practice in which Cliff bought us food, I pretended to work and we practiced- kinda. Then we took a whole bunch of pictures whilst posing on my mac. With my mac, not on my mac. Haha! After that, me and Sabrina went to the Hat. : ) Friday was our performance, which did not go as well as we had planned. But it's all good. My second presentation I had to find a replacement for my partner (who was sick and was unable to make it) so Livie stepped it and it went great! The professor was really impressed, despite the group issue we had previously encountered.

I'm seriously hoping I pass all of my classes! I messed up a bit, but at the moment, I am beyond caring! I just want to pass, so I don't have to re-do any classes! : (

So today was the Academic Decathlon Christmas Party- which is this gathering my former coach always throws for her former and current teams. Which is really nice of her, btw. Anyways, I was able to spend a lot of time with my former team mates, whom I all really missed! We've all just been so busy that we haven't had time to communicate! But it was all fun! I dazzled people with my skills at "Battle of the Sexes," ate some cherry tarts, and played a really hardcore game of "Uno." I'm not kidding when I say Hardcore. We were backstabbing one another and when one player managed to get one card we all teamed up against them. We made alliances, we made enemies, Mari was my Poland- it got crazy! Haha! It was awesome and I would so do it again! : D

Also, I so fucking excited! Coug came back from Yale! I was so happy to have her back that I visited her in the goddamn rain! Hahaha! I even slipped in her back yard cause of some issue with the roof- don't ask. We spent the time watching this documentary on the Deadly Sin of Pride, funnily enough. It's extremely ironic that particular episode was played on that day, seeing as we're both so vain. It was like the perfect episode for us to watch. Then we watched this show about Salon makeovers and criticized the participants- all in all it was very fun. Then before I left we somehow made a song using Garageband something very techno-y and rock-ish. we kept remarking on why we had not done that before so it might be something we wish to pursue... : )

Okay, my hands seem to be very tired from typing. Lol! I will stop here. Although I will try to blog once every two days, if not every day! : ) Now that I don't have anything to do! Hahaha!

Untitled by Nobody

I had my first audition today! : )

I auditioned for the ELAC production of "Stage Door" and for a one-act play by Woody Allen called "God." I really hope I get a part! I swear, I completely fell in love with the character I read for "Stage Door". The character's name is Keith and the director told me I was supposed to act like everything is about me.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I do that all the fucking time!! Haha! So I acted like I normally would- and they really liked it! Or so they told me. I really want the part!! : )

The second audition, which I did randomly, I believe went really well. They gave me a scene at random, so I ended up playing Hepatitis, the writer in Woody Allen's "God", which I read about an hour ago, and it is fucking hilarious!! It breaks the fourth wall, without really breaking the wall. Oedipus references, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Iliad, and a whole bunch of other things were touched on. I'm sure if I was looking and knew the more obscure references, there would be a shitload more!

I loved today! And Livie was able to audition, too! So we might be able to be in a play together! Cross your fingers for me!! Lol! I really want a part! I wonder by when they'll let me know...

Now for random videos:

Don't fuck with the Gaga! Lol! I fucking laughed cause of this video- so fucking much! It's hilarious!

Favorite Lady Gaga parody:

A Ke$ha parody:

Hope you guys liked the vids!

Also, read "God", you'll enjoy it! : )

Keep your fingers crossed for me!!
