I finally updated all of my music on Alphonse (my computer) and put the new iTunes on Alexander (my iPod). It's weird... I found that I have all of this music I didn't even know I had! Songs like Stairway to Heaven are on my computer... and I have no memory of buying or downloading them. I mean, I'm not complaining! They were probably just on some giftmix that a friend gave me and I forgot about... but nonetheless.

Also, I forgot to mention... I'm employed! On Friday of AnimeNEXT I got a call from AMC Theatres at 68th street, I went in for an interview on Monday... and this coming Monday, I start training to be part of the Film Crew at my favorite movie theatre! I'm pretty excited. I'll actually have money!  8D

I finally got to go fabric shopping yesterday, so I've been sewing a ton yesterday and today, to the point where I would say that the main part of my Ginny Weasley cosplay is done by this point~ I'm pretty pleased... it's gonna look pretty good, too!

I had other stuff I wanted to post about, but I forgot it. Back to more sewing, I suppose!

Today (after I got over not going to homecoming... that comes up later) involved seeing my best friend for the first time in over a month and a half? Possibly even more? But yes. It involved Wesley, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, and Beauty and the Beast. Today has mostly been a good day.

I didn't get to go to my high school homecoming though. It's kind of pissing me off. I set my alarm to get me up well in advance of when I had to be there so I could get up, take a shower, and get there in time to see my friends. It was supposed to be 10:00 AM. But then (I assume that this is what happened as I wasn't entirely concious at the time) my alarm went off, I was about to get up to go to homecoming, and then the past three consecutive nights of me getting less than four hours of sleep reached over, turned off the alarm, and said "Oh, no you won't." And I woke up at 2:00 PM. It just wasn't happening- it's an hour long trip to the school, and it ends at 2:45. So I didn't get to go to my homecoming. Which kind of really sucked.

So I took a nice long shower in a shower that wasn't entirely disgusting, shaved, found my cloak and put it on and mentally prepared to pack it so I could take it back with me to college. I then called Wesley, and she came over and we got to hang out, which made it better. It didn't replace the experience, but it was still really awesome, and it made me feel better.

And then, later on, after dinner with my family, my mother, brother and I went out to the Ben and Jerry's scoop shop on 104th and Broadway, got ice cream... and then came home and watched Beauty and the Beast which we had recorded on the DVR. Andandand... sldfjsdlkjfsd DISNEY. You all know my deep love for classic Disney movies. This is one of them. slkfjdlkjsd IT'S SO GOOD I LOVE IT. I'm still squeeing.

Also, hhnnnnggggghhhh Belle's dress in the dance scene I want it. If I had the skills, I would make it, but I don't... maybe one day I will though, because it's so gorgeous.

Aight. I'll go take my squeeage somewhere else.

Oh, and for those of you who are from the U.S. on my flist, happy Thanksgiving! (It's past midnight, that's fair game.) And if you're not from the U.S., I hope you just have a generally awesome day. Because we all deserve generally awesome days. Also, because it means that the holiday season is coming up, and no matter what religion you are, those are always amazing.  :D

WAITWAITWAIT, one more thing. You know what's awesome? You know what's really, seriously awesome? Chanukka comes early this year, and my parents told me what they're giving me for the holiday, because they say they need my help picking it out... THEY'RE GETTING ME A KEYBOARD!! Not a computer keyboard, a piano keyboard. This makes me so happy inside like I can't even begin to describe- I've wanted one for the longest time so I could play at college (the practice rooms in the music building are always full) and now I'm getting one, and I'm so happy about it, it just... makes my life pretty much complete.  XD

Wow. You know what? Do you guys have any requests? It's essentially the beginning of the holiday season anyway, and I love doing things for people, especially around this time of year! Be it a fic request or... whatever! Within reason, obviously... but if it's something I can do, ask me for it? I really want to do something for someone to share my happiness and make someone else's day, and I love you all, so... yeah. That's a thing. You should all totally take advantage of it~

I love this feeling.

Well, we may not have made it to the World Series. But we still had a pretty good run this year.

...And we'll get it next year~

(I so highly doubt that Robertson will be among those getting there with us, though. Damn, it's pretty safe to say that he kind of blew three of the games we lost this series for us. And if the Yankees don't sign Cliff Lee, I will be shocked. Just sayin'.)

But yes. It's all good. We still got next year!

...And it's still a ton of fun being that girl, walking around Massachussetts with a Yankee cap on, during the postseason.  XD

In other, non-baseball related news, I finally tagged my entries from the past few months, when I just didn't want to bother doing it. I'm so proud of myself for catching up on those!

Tomorrow (well, technically today) is Hetalia Day. And I won't be there. Which is just strange. But... I'll be calling in to it, so I guess it's all good. And for the rest of the day, time I would have spent at the meetup, I will be introducing a friend to Hetalia, which is incredibly appropriate, and going to see The Social Network. (Which I really don't have the money for, but... I've just heard that it's so good.)

Lastly, I was looking for movie soundtrack music the other day, and I somehow ended up registered with Pandora. I don't know how that happened, but I now have a movie music channel on Pandora, and I love it. It's now playing one of the themes from Star Trek: 2009, and that just makes me all kinds of happy. (The saddest part is that I can visualize in my head exactly what's going on in the movie when this particular theme plays.  XD)

So I went to go see Next to Normal on Broadway yesterday.

It was... well...

The basic idea of the musical is that it's about a family trying to deal with the mother's literal insanity. No, she's actually insane. Delusions, severe depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder... she's got a lot going on. And her family is trying to deal with her mental problems.

This subject is very... relavent to me. I won't go into details- not online- but it's relavent.

So there's the mother, who's insane, the father who's trying to cope with being her husband, and then her daughter. Her teenage daughter. The one with the excellent grades, who has to be perfect and get into a good college and everything, as WELL as deal with her mentally disabled family member...
And then she sings a song called "Superboy and the Invisible Girl."

Now I will admit that I cry at fiction all the time. But at Next to Normal, starting at that song, but continuing for the rest of the musical... I just broke down. It was technically a school trip too, since it was paid for by the school, so I was surrounded by my classmates, and I can usually control myself- especially around other people. But I couldn't stop myself. I just kept crying... it was gross by the end. But I couldn't even stop the tears from coming.... It's so intense, and it cuts you right to the core like a knife, and it's a tear-jerker to begin with, but then when you add in how relevant it is to me... I just broke down completely.

...I loved it. You should go see it. You should REALLY see it. It's incredible. I won't go see it with you though. As much as I loved it, I don't think I could take it again...

*sighs* It's been over 24 hours, and I'm still emotionally drained from it. I think I need a hug. And something sweet and sugary.

The good news: I'm babysitting tonight.

The bad news: I'm babysitting tonight.

The neutral news: I'm babysitting tonight.

No, not really gonna explain that one.  XD

By the way, for any of you who remember the whole thing I posted about with my "friend" two posts ago... well, he still hasn't changed. At all. He's acting as if I don't exist, although that can't last- we have too many mutual friends for that to work. But... today, after lunch, one of my friends who normally sits at my lunch table (although he was doing something else during today's lunch), one of the ones my "friend" said really hates me, came up to me and said that he heard that someone had gone off on me, and how that's "fucked up" and "not cool" and he's "gonna talk to some people about it." And... it's just nice to know that people really don't hate me. I mean, I already knew that, but... it's nice when people really and openly care for me~

Ooh, one last thing- [livejournal.com profile] ghettospellwork, I admit I don't really know Dark Shadows. But you talk about it so often, I recognized the name... the other day, outside of Lehman College, there was one of those mobile clinic mammogram whatever centers... and it came from a place called "St. Barnabas Hospital". Just thought you'd enjoy hearing about that~

Really last thing- screw what anyone else says, Taylor Swift is awesome, and You Belong With Me is one of my new favorite songs.  8D

THEATER PEOPLE ON MY FLIST WHERE ARE YOU.

So. Last night I went out to the ~*theater*~! (I love living in New York.) I went to go see the final preview of Promises, Promises (it opened tonight!) with Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth. Meaning? I saw an awesome Broadway show last night, which included Kristin Chenoweth.

And then, naturally, I hung around the stage door afterwards, and got both of their autographs. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT I HAVE SEAN HAYES' AND KRISTIN CHENOWETH'S AUTOGRAPHS. Yeah. Just sayin'.

I also got to dress up all fancy and pretty too.  8D

...</ bragging>

No, really, I'm done being obnoxious. I promise!

For you non-theater people on my flist...

Been watching Spice & Wolf recently, and it's... aiight. It's not awesome, but it's not completely terrible either. Of course, I am more than slightly biased because J. Michael Tatum speaks for pretty much all of it. It's a little confusing and weird, and I'm not entirely sure what's going on half of the time, but the characters are fun (Especially the money-dealer!! Oh man, I love him.) and I absolutely adore each and every VA in it. I mean, I usually adore the FUNimation VAs, but still.  XD

I'm probably going to go to Trinity College, come fall. Unless I get into Brandeis, since I was wait-listed there, but... it looks like it's gonna be Trinity.

Sakura Matsuri is next weekend!! Show of hands- who's going/excited?  8D

I had my show today, which was cool, but I realized... my last show with Kids 'n Comedy is next month. That's so weird... makes me feel so old...

Also, just one last thing I wanted to mention. It was pointed out to me in my last entry that some of the stuff I said about self-esteem and people who don't have much of it either potentially was, or flat out was hurtful and insulting... and I just wanted to say I'm sorry for that. That's not at all what I'd intended, and if you were hurt by that, I feel so horribly, I can't even begin to express it. You all mean the world to me, and I feel awful that I might have even potentially hurt any of you. I don't even know what to say, so just... I'm really, really sorry.  :/
arthoniel: (The Daily Show- TDS: We put the anal)
Did anyone see last night's (Wednesday night's) Daily Show with Jon Stewart? The whole thing about the Representitive being on Glenn Beck was just beautiful. Just sayin'.

I would say that Soul Eater needs to stop eating my brain. But... I can't really make myself think or believe that, to be honest.  XD

I feel a bit weird though. I haven't RPed in... ages. Several weeks at least. Save for GMSN, but... I don't know. I love RP, I do!! I just... I've been watching new animes instead, and I've gotten exposed to new things that I've been loving (obviously,) I've watched some of the series that my friends have been incessantly pressuring me to watch... and I'm not held to the... I don't know, I'm not tied to my tags. I don't have the obligation to go online and respond now because so-and-so is expecting a response right now at this minute. I may or may not go back and play some characters over at [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun, but... it's been nice, being more productive on actual projects I want to get done, going on Facebook and talking to my friends more... I guess what I'm saying is, I've enjoyed being me more recently than I have being someone else.

I've been playing piano more recently too. Like, I've been trying to learn how to play this piece better, from Romeo X Juliet- it's just so pretty!! ...Yes, I play anime music. Or at least, I try to. But then also... I also got a new songbook (8D !!) and... in addition to singing the songs in it, I've also been trying to play the songs themselves. I always at least play the chords, but the legit songs themselves as well... I'm not very good at it yet. But I'm trying~

Also, a small con but the first one of the con season in on Saturday- SpringFEST!! I'll probably wear Misa... but I'm really excited. Yay cons!!  8D

Lastly... a number of people on my flist have been feeling badly recently. I won't say who, or why or anything of that nature... but I just want to make sure that you all know that I love you, and that if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm always right here for you~ Not just those of you dealing with hard times too- all of you. I just wanted to make sure you all know that. Because it's true.
arthoniel: (Phoenix Wright- I just kicked your ass)
I don't even know- I've had a combination of A River Flows in You and Total Eclipse of the Heart stuck in my head for the past few hours, but I don't really mind. They're both just awesome songs. (Yes, I am well aware that A River Flows in You was the original Bella's Lullaby, but it was written way before Twilight. And besides, that doesn't stop it from being an absolutely beautiful piece of music, or change the fact that you should all listen to it.)

I had a day off today, and it was amazing. I was supposed to spend all of it writing, but I ended up sleeping until about 12 instead, then I read for a while until about 1, and then I spent the rest of my time until 5 (when I finally started catching up on my writing) playing DDR and Guitar Hero. I have no regrets.

I just found out that I can get YouTube on my phone. I suppose I can kiss whatever productivity I had before goodbye now.  XD

Oh, and apparantly there's a con in New Bruswick- at Rutgers- called Mokucon on December 5th. Oh, and it's free. So I don't even know how I'm gonna pay for train fare or for stuff in the artist's alley and dealers room and all... but FREE CON = WIN. Oh, and Vic Mignogna is going to be there. sldfkjdlkjfsljf VIC MIGNOGNA. Just sayin'.  XD
