Peeling wall "mud" out of my nose hairs   
08:30pm 12/07/2004
mood: accomplished
I have gained a lot more respect for construction workers. Sure their creepy when they stare you up and down and honk their horns when they pass you on the street, but their job is not an easy one. They have to work grueling hours in the sun, lifting heavy objects, scrubbing, beating, and doing whatever possible to get insubordinate tools to make something magnificent. (All the while being under paid to do it.) Why the sudden sympathy for the common laborer?
Well, for the past three days, I have been assisting my aunt renovate her house. And when i say renovate, I don't mean the pantie-waist kind where you just add a ceiling fan and slap on some new wallpaper, and call it new. I mean hard core renovate, to the beams, like a skeleton. (But she's much farther along on it now, just textured the walls and preparing to paint them.) Oh, but sweet Mother of Jesus, it is no easy task to clean up after texture people, especially stupid ones, the ones who don't cover the areas that are NOT supposed to be textured. I've done nothing but scrape "mud" as they call it off of windows and doors and showers, and sand it off walls, and then vacuum it up, until yes....there is so much white dust in my nose and lungs, that it would be safe to say that, *cough* I think i have the white lung. Anyway, that's enough about ranting about my wonderful house building experiences. And the truth is I really enjoy it. I love to see the transformation of an old home, almost to the point of condemned, becoming something new, to start a new chapter in life (this was the house my aunt grew up in). And helping my aunt when she needs a hand. That is such a good feeling in itself, there can't be anything better in the world.

Ok i would like to show some recognition to absolutely wonderful people in my life right now:

Jackie, for sacrificing herself to eating lunch by her lonesome bc some of my friends are having issues with me. And for always being there and talking to me about anything and every thing. And for helping me get to know an absolutely yummy boy ;).....can't thank u enough for that one. Picnic Saturday!!!!!

Hillary, bc she thought about coming to school when she was sick just so i wouldn't be alone in dance. U r beautiful and make my day so much brighter. How do u follow the leader ? Maybe i sud ask Miss Kepper to show us..... again....

And to all of the wonderful theater people, u r magical and i love just to sit and be around u, or chase bouncy-balls through the class room, or listen to Katherine Gee just talk, and the list goes on and on......

I love people and i cant stop it!

I went with Jackie tonight and ate at Galaxy Cafe, and we had a really stupendous time. One of the major sources of fun was Jackie herself. Don't believe me? Well check out these quotes first and then decide for yourself.

"Hey u now how ur teeth r warm?" (she then preceded to rub her cold fingers across them) "And the saliva is warm too, but then ur hands smell bad. And your teeth r sharp too, so the pain of rubbing your fingers across them detracts you from being cold.

"Three o'clock. A member of the opposite species." (referring to a curly headed boy)

"Hey we sud eat the sweet potatoes like different animals."

"oooo, crotch wedgie."

"the milk is separating us."

*and here is something that was terribly ironic- today during lunch i was eating a grape and i dipped it in some mayo from JAckie's sandwich. She was really disgusted by it. ANd now for the ironic part- the sandwich she ordered was a chicken salad burger, and it had grapes in it. Life foreshadowing, as Jackie put it.

THe food was "unique" as Jackie put it, and that i was a slow eater. But we were still hungry after we had our um, interesting, and one extremely bland sandwiches. So we went and ordered some sweet potatoes, which turned out to be really good. Too bad we ate them with forks and half of them ended up on the table..........oooo, some good advice. don't put ur napkin wrapped silverware under a tea despencer...when someone is filling their drink. Sorry about that JAckie.

hey if u like sweet potatoes go eat at Galaxy Cafe. If u like normal food, don't.

Today was an ordinary Saturday. I woke up late (ok 8:30 isn't all that late) and had a delicious omelet and cinnamon roll. After breakfast i continued my day by taking a nap. I tell ya, i'm one exciting person. By 2 my need for sleep was diminished so i got up and ate some left over pizza. Wow. Anyway, while i was sitting in my room i looked out my window and looked at how lovely the outdoors are. I realized that i haven't spent time outside since before In to the Woods. I desperately wanted to go for a bike ride, but alas, there was no air in my tires, and after one bad experience trying to ride a bike up a hill with no air, i knew that that was out of the question. So i convinced my mother to take a walk with me and Tikka (our dog, an adorable Papillion) and we strolled down the street talking about life and my grandfather who is sick in a nursing home. My mother is such a strong person, and i thought about how lucky i am that she is in my life. She talked about her childhood and her parents, and a realization came to my mind. I have two parents who care so deeply about their children and that they are happy. My mother on the other hand, was raised on a farm with a father who drank too much and was never there for her. But she saw what alcohol could to a family and she wanted to better herself from that life. She moved out when she was 18, and was dependent from there on. I admire her so much for that, and i would be perfectly content to be just like her.
What to do?

First of all i would like to congratulate everyone who made callbacks!(and good luck making the show) And second i send my sympathy to everyone who did not. I myself felt like a piece of my heart had been ripped out; theater was the one thing i thought i was good at, and then when i didn't see my name on the list i was crushed. This was how my whole day went, me feeling sorry for myself, but after i had a little pity-party for myself, i felt much better. I realized there are so many other wonderful things that i missed out on every day because i had theater after school. I have a loving family that i haven't had time to spend with in weeks, and can take my time enjoying life. Whether that is eating a snack of cherry tomatoes, watching the sun set (breath taking) or just to have time to sit and do nothing. I can't remember when i last did that. OOoo, and CSI is on tonight!!!! What a perfect evening.

But after awhile i start to shake and, oh the searing pain!! (I know i complain to much) Oh! and all of u with fabulous mothers or fathers who brought food tonight, please thank them for me. It was really wonderful to have something to eat and not starve to death for 6 hours. Any way all of u wonderful ppl in the cast that i adore, gets lots of sleep tonight, and don't forget to wear ur costume!!!

Ello Poppets!
This morning i woke up to sunlight streaming though my windows. It was the most beautiful thing i have seen in a long time, because with theater and school, i have found that i get very little sun exposure. And then my day continued to get better with a warm cup of coffee, omelet and cinnamon rolls. Mmmmmmmm, sticky! How could something that tastes so good be so bad for u? Oh well, i will just get fat, but at least i will be happy! ahahaha. Anyway, it's about time that i got started on my gobs of hw. With the play this week i see a serious decline of sleep and an overage of hw coming my way.Ahhh! Maybe i will get it done so i will have some time to go and bask and play in the sun! As it was once said in oklahoma, " Oh What a Beautiful Morning oh what a Beautiful Day". I couldn't have said it better myself. So my dear friends, i will depart from u now, but don't worry i will type more later (bc i know ur dieing to read more! hehe). GO OUTSIDE AND ENJOY THIS WEATHER!!!! Oh and one more thing. Thank you Jackie for making me this wonderful journal! And read my information if u want a good laugh (Jackie helped with that too ;)!)
