arthoniel: (Pride and Prejudice- *uncontrollably exc)


God, I'm such a whore.

...No, really. I'm gonna be a massive whore.

Although, I suppose the more "politically correct" way to say that is... I'm playing Bianca in the upcoming Hold Thy Peace at Brandeis University's production of Othello.

So. Like I said. I'm such a whore. And I'm so excited.  :D
 


arthoniel: (Baccano!- Deep thoughts by Issac and Mir)


Random musings since my brain is not in a place where I can write out full paragraphs and stuff.

-I love my high school. I love going back to visit. Especially since so many of my friends there are younger than me, and thus, still there. But I'm glad it's over, and that I'm in college now.
-My Disney Pandora channel is giving me less and less actual Disney. First it was all the songs from Disney movies that I liked... and then it became covers of those songs by other people, which wasn't ideal, but wasn't bad... and then it was Glee which I couldn't dislike, but wasn't quite what I was going for... but now, getting an actual Disney song is significantly rarer. And that's not cool. I'm considering deleting the channel and just starting over with it again. Because... I have not had a Disney song for the past, like, seven songs. (I'm listening to it now, if that wasn't already obvious.)
-Someone truly awesome made marshmallows, and gave me a bit of them. They were amazing and Earl Grey flavored and I loved them. The only thing about them that makes me at all sad is that they are gone now, and I no longer have any. But they were still really super cool.  :D
-I recently got an idea for a new stand-up sketch that I think could be really good if I can just refine it some. And by some, I mean a lot. But it's a really good idea, and I really wanna work on it.
-I absolutely adore my HTP friends. Some of us went out to see Julie Taymor's film adaptation of The Tempest, and it was very much made of happy. It's the trippiest Shakespeare that I've ever seen. But oh my god, so good. And then I saw it with some of my favorite people ever, and it just was very much happy tiemz, and I love all of you. (Yay being vague with names and identities on the internet!)  <3
-In fact, in general, I have been getting a lot of love recently. An almost disproportionate amount of love, but... I'm feeling very happy in general with life right about now. I love my friends, especially now that I have friends who respect me and show me their affection, I love the holiday season which helps bring all of this out in all of us, and I love all of you. All of you. You all help make me this kind of happy, and it's just wonderful and... I don't really have words for it in my slightly brain-dead state, but... I'm very happy, and it's you guys who bring me to this level of awesome.  :)
-Whoa. I guess I can do paragraphs a little more than I thought I could.
-Walking will be happening a lot tomorrow as I walk from my house all the way down to the fashion district and back to get holiday presents... and I don't want to pay train fare. But it's good for me! It's good exercise! ...Besides, it also means that if I don't spend all of the money I've allotted for holiday presents, that is ample excuse for me to let myself go to Jamba Juice with the rest of my money and get their limited edition Berried 'n Chocolate flavor smoothie, which is just so good and I love it.
-Equals Three is awesome. It's a web show on YouTube, and... yeah, just YouTube search Equals Three and watch it. It's really funny. And should you care, I can post links to my favorite episodes from it. I mean, I have literally cried from laughing because of it. ...Also, the guy who does it lives in New York, just down the block from a friend of mine, so you just know that it's awesome.
-I've finally seen all of Firefly. slkdfjdslkjfsd IT'S SO GOOD. I really wanna get the DVDs now too... but yes. It's just such a good series. And Nathan Fillion is a beautiful, A+ human being.

...I've gotten to the point where I'm just rambling about the first thing that comes to mind. Also, Go The Distance just came up on my Pandora channel, so I'll stop now.

But yes. TL;DR... I love you all, you guys. You make me very happy. All of you.  <3


arthoniel: (Heroes- Gonna hafta choke a bitch)

sldjfkdjfldk DAMMIT, EMOTIONS, WHAT THE HELL. YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU, BUT... REALLY? REALLY?? Just. What the hell.  B|

^ No, I will not explain that one. Not yet, anyway.  >D 

IN OTHER NEWS.

Number of words I am behind on my NaNoWriMo: ~10,000
Amount of time I have to catch up on it: ~0
Percent chance that I will do it through sheer force of will because it's a challenge now: OVER 9,000%

Also... so Winter's Tale ended on Sunday. I honestly have no idea what to do with myself now. I spent so much time with it, I honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do. And I wasn't even one of the leads!

(Incidentally, if you're friends with me on Facebook, there are some pretty pictures of it posted from our photocall. There are pretty dresses and gorgeous sets and lighting and sldkfjdslkfj everything. You should check it out.  8D)

Seriously though, I'm really kind of... lost. I guess I can catch up on my NaNoWriMo? Either way though, that doesn't matter as much. What matters is that I had the most amazing time doing it. Everyone involved with it was just so extraordinary like I don't even have the words, and I love them all to pieces. And I'm sad that it's over. I don't want to not play Perdita again... she was such an interesting person to be. It's alright. There will be other shows. But this one... I'm so glad it was my first here. I can't imagine having done a better first production, ever.
arthoniel: (Ouran- Realistic Kyouya)

It's about 3:30 now. I just got back to my room about 50 minutes ago. I'm getting up early tomorrow (well, I guess, today) to meet my parents for brunch. But I can't complain- I can't even come close to regretting tonight. The very thought of it is ludicrous.

I can't even begin to express just how much I love Hold Thy Peace. Some Creative Writing major I am, huh? But they are all so amazing. They're seriously all among the most intelligent, interesting, funny, awesome people I've ever met. Every single person in HTP is extraordinary.

And then the fact that I can even entertain the thought that they might like me too is one of the biggest honors I could ever recieve.

We all had dinner tonight at IHOP and it... I would have to count it among the best nights of my life. I just had so much fun, and I got to be with all these amazing people, and... and they all make me so happy.

For those of you HTPers on my flist, this means you too.  <3

...Aight. The fact that it's late at night, and that I'm listening to my shiny new Disney channel with all of it's over the top cheesy and awesome love songs is probably affecting me. So I'll stop gushing now.

But being at Brandeis has made me happier than I have ever been on a consistant basis. And HTP is no small part of that.

In ending, I leave you with these small pieces of awesome:

"Now Jove afford you pants!
To me, the difference forges dread.
Your greatness hath not been used to pants!
Even now, I tremble to think that your father,
by some accident, should pass this way as you did.
Oh, the Pants!
How would he look, to see his pants, so noble, vilely bound up?
What would he say?
Or how should I,
in these, my borrowed pants,
behold the sternness of his prescence?"

"Oh, but sir, your pants cannot hold,
when 'tis opposed,
as they must be,
by the power of the king!"

I need a more Shakespearian icon. In the meantime, I suppose Sebastian Michaelis will have to do~

HEY, YOU. YES, YOU. If you're anywhere even remotely nearby the Boston area this weekend (i.e., the entire Northeastern United States), then... THIS APPLIES TO YOU. (My apologies if you've already seen this on my Facebook or DeviantArt.)

Hey, everyone. Look at your weekend plans, now back to mine, now back to your weekend plans, now back to mine. Sadly, they aren't mine, but if you got off of Facebook tonight and tomorrow at 8, Sunday at 2, and went to go see The Winter's Tale instead, they could seem like mine.  Look down, look back up, where are you? You're in Bohemia with a man getting eaten by a bear. What's in your hand, back at me. I have it, it's a necklace given to another king's wife by a king. Look again, the necklace is now flowers. Anything is possible when you go to see The Winter's Tale and don't stay on Facebook. I'm on a boat.

8D

...No, I'm not overly proud of this parody, why do you ask?

Fff, I'm 7,000 words behind on my NaNoWriMo- I was gonna novel today since I haven't done anything, but after a super busy week... it's been nice to just not do anything today.

arthoniel: (Death Note- Can I have your autograph?)

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot.
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.

I wonder how many people will actually read this? )...That didn't work as well as I had hoped for getting the reminder that I am exactly one hour and seven minutes too late for signing up for some of the classes I really want to take next semester, and I won't be able to add them until the next semester starts. In other words, I'm a moron. That, and I have to do a thing for my UWS that I really don't want to do, and that's in addition to my paper that I'm currently writing. So. Um. Yeah. That wasn't entirely helpful.  -_-;;
arthoniel: (Pride and Prejudice- *uncontrollably exc)
AHAHA TECH WEEK.

Also, by the way.

IN THE PAST 24 HOURS I HAVE:
-used a screw gun
-gotten into a really selective Creative Writing class for next semester.

One of these is awesome. One of these is ridiculously creepy. CAN YOU GUESS WHICH IS WHICH?  8D

Seriously though, I GOT INTO THE CREATIVE WRITING SEMINAR!! *does a happy dance*
arthoniel: (Default)
Oh, hello there, meme that I forgot to do yesterday. I guess I'll just do two of your categories today to make up for it!

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot.
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.


Day Two: Nine things about yourself.

1) I have been told that I "come on very strongly." Basically, what that means is that I'm a girl, but I have ~*confidence*~, which most people just aren't used to.
2) I'm comfortable in my own skin. I like who I am, both inside and out. That doesn't mean that there aren't things I wouldn't change, but I like myself.
3) That being said, I don't think I'm a good person. That is not synonymous with me hating myself, and that doesn't mean that I'm a bad person. I just. Don't think I'm a good person.
4) I could totally use a hookup right now. I have the self-restraint to not go and hookup with the first person I see. But if I were at a con or something, and the other person understood what I wanted? I could really use a hookup right now.
5) I said that I'm confident. That doesn't mean that I don't like people verifying that I'm pretty/smart/that people like me.
6) I am an actress/writer forever. It's what I'm going to do once I graduate and everything. People don't realize the power that the entertainment industry has over everything, but wields enormous influence, and... damn, what I wouldn't give to be able to be a part of that.
7) I have such a thing for accents, oh my god.
8) I have no idea how I got to 8 things about myself, I know I've just been rambling, I can't imagine that any of this is interesting, but the only thing I can think of now is that HEEHEEHEE, 8 IS PERFECTLY SYMMETRICAL IT'S SUCH A WONDERFUL NUMBER, IT'S ABSOLUTELY AND PERFECTLY AESTHETICALLY PLEASING.  ^_^
9) This is my favorite number, when I'm not being taken over by Kid-like obsession over symmetry.  XD

Day Three: Eight Ways to Win Your Heart

1) Be attractive, cute, or incredibly charming/charismatic. I know it's shallow of me, but there does need to be a physical attraction there. On occasion, this can be subverted by me having a really good time with someone, but they have to be a lot of fun to hang out with... and even then, they can't be unattractive.
2) Share at least some of my interests. We gotta have something to talk about, right?
3) Be able to put up with my immaturity. Or even match it. I love it when people can match me for sexual references, puns and innuendoes!
4) Be informed. Someone wouldn't have to know everything about everything that's going on in the world ever, but at least know the basics of what's going on. If you don't know, at a minimum, who/what Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and/or SNL are/is, you're doing it wrong.
5) Along that same vein, be at least socially liberal. I hear anything homophobic, discriminatory, or pro-life, and we have an issue.
6) Don't be a bandwagon jumper. If you have a popular opinion, then that's not the problem. But have a reason for it. If you're the kind of person who will hate the Yankees because they win a lot, or because you're sick of Yankee fans, then you can shove it. If you hate the Yankees because you were raised in Boston, or because we beat your team specifically, then I understand, and can deal. But don't pretend to be the other team's biggest fan just because they're playin them. </ rant... but nonetheless a real point>
7) Do something sweet for me. Don't creep me out by buying me tons of stuff after I've known you for less than a week (true story), but if you just remember little things, (i.e., if I'm in a show or something, and you go see it/ask me how it was if you couldn't) then I will absolutely melt.
8) Be a good kisser. Again, I know it's really shallow, and I suppose it's not entirely necessary, but... helps. and is very nice. And is appreciated.  XD

In other news, Winter's Tale tech week starts tomorrow, so if I'm not really here... that's why. Just so you guys know.  :D
arthoniel: (A:TLA- Imminent Death Alert)

Oh, hi there, Winter's Tale! What an awesome little show you are there~

Hmm? What's that? You go up in a week? Oh, hahahahaha, you're so funny, Winter's Tale! You're really, really funny!!

What? You weren't kidding? We really do have opening night in a week? Y-You know, it's not funny when you do that...

...We really are opening in a week. Right

......'Scuse me while I go have a mini freakout at my first show in college (I'm not counting the 24 hour musical, because I wasn't concious enough for that) opening in about a week.

IN OTHER NEWS.

Do any of you know the sitcom The Nanny? Because my roommates love it, and marathon it practically every night they're not out partying. And I hate it. It's just... not all that funny. It's not terrible, but... it's far from have-it-on-every-night funny. And it makes me want to stab a knife through our TV.

I'm still only a day ahead for NaNoWriMo, and my word count has to increase exponentially for this to work this year. And it will work this year. It just has to.
Although I was novelling earlier today, and I discovered a whole new layer to one of my characters that even I didn't know existed. It was kind of awesome. I mean, my main, Emily, is literally me. But now, I think Nick is my favorite. I'm just sayin'. I kind of love him. It's too bad he has to be a douche later.

So I introduced a friend of mine to Death Note. It was kind of beautiful. We were both in my room, hanging out on my bed, and I showed her my Light pillow. You know, the one where he looks like an Abercrombie & Fitch model... and is wearing as much as one. And she looks at him, and literally goes "oh wow." And I showed her the first episode, and she agrees with me in that she just loves looking at him. And I feel very accomplished and awesome. Just sayin'. (No, she has not seen the potatochip scene yet. Only the first episode. She hasn't even seen "L..." "Kira..." "I will hunt you down where ever you are hiding and I WILL eliminate you." "I am..." "I am..." "JUSTICE!" yet.  <-- *Did that entirely from memory, without even having to think about it. It's kind of sad. And awesome.*)

Lastly, I will leave you with a quote that someone awesome reminded me of that I felt deserved sharing with all of you:
"Banan."
"Little more!"
"Banananana- DAMMIT!"
My friends and I are incapable of saying "banana". <3 you, Nat~!  XD
arthoniel: (Star Trek- Bondage Fun Time)

So, I briefly mentioned in my last post something about being incredibly happy right now.

I'm currently in New York City again, and will be until 2:00 PM Sunday afternoon.

I think that should clear everything up.

It really doesn't matter that I was here last weekend. I love my City... I can never be here too much.

Plus, when I have to leave on Sunday, I'm going back to school where I'll meet up with the rest of my Winter's Tale cast, and we'll talk to this chick who's a Harvard alum, and has written several books about Shakespeare- and she's coming specifically to talk to us. It's pretty cool. I'm pretty excited.

But for now? I'M IN THE GREATEST PLACE IN THE WORLD.
arthoniel: (Star Trek- Bondage Fun Time)
I could have spent this entry talking about New York Comic Con and New York Anime Fest, and what I thought about it. I was there this weekend, after all, and I do want to write something about it.

I could have spent this entry arguing about how annoying my classes are, and how studying is irritating.

I could have spent this entry discussing how awesome the people in HTP (my school's Shakespearean group that I'm in- it stands for Hold Thy Peace, and it's super special awesome) are, and how much I am really and truly beginning to love them.

I could even have spent this entry going off about how I have really, fully, finally, completely, and truly begun to fall for Neil Patrick Harris, particularly in How I Met Your Mother, which I am also seriously getting into.

But no. I can't do any of that. Because my brain has been completely taken over... by this:



Can't type due to laughter either? Don't worry, there's no need to. I completely understand. You're welcome.
