Last night was the Senior Showcase for us. It actually turned out pretty awesome. Everyone was worried that something would go wrong with the scenes or something wouldn’t be ready but in true theatre-fashion, everything came together at the last possible minute. The Black Box was packed with a lot of people. Parents, family and friends were all there and a lot of ESM Alumni came to support...
Ahh, I Need A Blue Tie!
So tonight is Amy’s sweet 16. I thought I was done with Sweet 16’s like a year ago since I went to about 20 but hey, I’m actually kinda excited. It should be a lot of fun and it’s a good excuse to hang out with everyone. Anyway, she told me that I am one of her VIPs which means I have to wear blue and I walk in with another VIP (in my case, Taylor) and I’m not really...

Things Are Moving So Fast
This week has been insane. Everything is just like happening so quickly and there’s no time to stop and like regroup. Tomorrow is the Senior Theatre showcase and no one feels ready but I feel like it’s just going by in a blur. There has been a concert or event every night not to mention my pressing social calendar (haha). This weekend is just as bad and then there’s stuff all...
Did You Know...?
Did you know that in Saudi Arabia, gas is only .35 cents a gallon? Yeah, it made me angry too.
It's called an "iPod touch"
Okay, this is really beginning to bother me. Everyone I know that has an iPod touch calls it an “iTouch”. I’m not sure why it bugs me so much but it’s one of those things that caught on because it’s easy to say but it’s not at all correct. If you were a company and called it an iTouch, Apple can sue you. There was an article on Macrumors about it and...

Senior Cut Day
So this Friday (yesterday, as I’m writing this) was the first of a few “unofficial” Senior Cut Days. Granted, I’ve been making my own cut days for the past…2 years? Anyway, on Thursday everyone was excited because technically it was a Friday for us. I woke up at 10:00 AM and went to get Rachel. We decided to go to IHOP for breakfast. We got there and there was a huge...
The Arctic Blender
So I’m pretty tired, but I have to warn you. Don’t get the Carvel Arctic Blender. I got the “Peanut Butter Arctic Blender” thinking it would be like a cyclone and all it was, was awkward. Yes awkward. I didn’t know if I should eat it with a spoon or drink it with a straw. And the oriental man didn’t put enough peanut butter chunks on top. The end.
Phantom of the ... Goldfish?
Traci: Yay, phantom of the opera!

Today was unusually long. I felt like every period itself went short but the time between them and the time it took to get thru the day was really long. I know I just spelled “thru” incorrectly, but I’ve adopted that spelling as the correct one. It must be a stage manager thing - “Run-Thru” looks much better than “Run-Through” in my humble stage managerial...
I'm Not A Nerd, Dad.
Dad: How come you don't dance at these family parties?
Me: I don't really know, maybe it's because I don't know anyone.
Dad: Well, do you dance with your friends?
Me: Yeah, of course.
Dad: Oh, well when I was in high school, I was labeled as a nerd. Girls wouldn't even look at me. But as soon as I hit the dance floor, that all changed.
Me (Thinking): Wow, my dad just insulted me!

So today I went on a mad scholarship hunt. It was eerily reminiscent of college applications. It seemed like every website that offered a scholarship wanted you to sign up for their website or something. I must’ve given out my email to over 20 places. Hopefully it pays off. Then after I was done with the web ones (not all the ones I’m eligible for, because I was distracted by Dunkin...

Prom Night (No, Not The Dumb Movie)
So tonight is Junior Prom. It’s raining out right now which kind of sucks. I have to get dressed and put all the dumb suit-related nonsense on, figure out some cool little whoop or something for my hair and then go get people. I hope its fun, it should be (minus the awkward moments, slow dancing, and the soulja boy…which I forgot how to do, even though I learned it like two weeks...
Free Iced Coffee Day
So today was Dunkin Doughnuts “Free Iced Coffee Day”. So after school I kidnapped Kevin and took him with me. I had to go “out west” to get my suit anyway. So we decided to also hit up McDonalds which was apparently having free “Southern Style Chicken Sandwich Day”. After some debate as whether or not to go to Riverhead or Shirley, we decided (I decided) to go...

Tell Me When You're Not in Defcon 3, Okay?
So today was an interesting day. I went to school knowing it was going to be a long day and I wasn’t really sure why. The morning went pretty fast. Then I found out I had to work the concert tonight (well, in all honesty, I didn’t but I like that Raynor and Min rely on me). Anyhoo, I cut 7th, 8th and 9th and went to Taco Bell with Lauren and TJ. My gym teacher called my house and told...
I'm Very Much Done With School
It occured to me today (for the hundredth time) that I am very much done with the whole high school thing. I walked in to English and we were watching “Say Anything” (expect a full and probably negative review when it’s all over) and almost no one was there because of AP Bio. The rest of the morning kind of went like that as well. Most of my “legit classes” were...
Yeah, since when are you a blogger?– Rachel
Movie Review: Rescue Dawn
Okay, so in my boredom I decided to rent this movie called “Rescue Dawn”. I watched the trailer and was immidiately interested but I was hoping it wasn’t one of those movies that just has a really good trailer but actually sucks (which happens a lot!). Anyway, I rented it and started watching it. It was pretty terrible. I thought the effects were cheesy. The shots of the...
This Is Going To Be A Long Week
So I was just taking a quick look at my crazy OCD calendar and I just realized that there is some kind of event that I have to stage manager in the theatre every night. Half of them are dumb too. Like “Junior High Athletic Awards”. Give me a break people, do you really need a ceremony to celebrate the mediocre athletic abilities of a 12 year old? Whatever, I guess it’ll be...

So my mom had to go to the store really quick to get food for the week and stuff. Not sure why she picked Mother’s Day to do it, but at any rate she just came in my room and said “So, I’m going to take your car to King Kullen” since my car was on the driveway and blocking hers. Simple, right? No. I actually went outside, moved my car into the street and moved hers on to...

We Weren't Lost! I Swear!
Today was a pretty fun night. After this afternoon’s Mother’s Day Adventure and pointless standing in Carvel, the night ended up being pretty cool. TJ and I went to visit Whitney right before the store closed and then we drove around pointlessly, as always. We went to a 7-11 in Moriches and then ended up driving all the way to Rt. 25 and passed through Ridge, Middle Island, Longwood....
I’m standing in Carvel right now. Fun.

McDonald's Sweet Tea
So last week, I saw a commercial on television for McDonald’s new Sweet Iced Tea. I was all excited because, well, I LOVE Iced Tea. So today, with exactly one dollar left in my wallet from my exciting Mother’s Day Shopping Adventure, I decided to try it. As I was rolling up to the window, I looked over at my friend TJ who came along for the ride (we went to visit Whitney at Carvel),...
So, its 4:00 PM on the day before Mother’s Day and I still have nothing for my mom. I think I should probably go out and try to find something…right now. I’m kind of broke so this should be an interesting shopping adventure!
This is pretty awesome.
I don’t really know why this blog seems so cool but it really does. Maybe its the cool colors and stuff like that but I think I might use it.
