I really need to update my icons.

So I might be using DW more after all, if LJ keeps going down.

So uh...hi! :3

I've been in a funk for the last few days, but I think I'm coming out of it--I actually did some work today, so that's a good sign. I hate when I get depressed, and hopefully I won't feel that way again for some time.

I'm going to be taking two classes this summer, so that'll keep me busy to an extent, and then hopefully I can get a job as well. I need money really badly, and I hate asking my parents for handouts.

Apparently, I have to audition for a certain acting class I want to take, which is...frustrating and nerve-wracking. :/ But the rest of my classes look decent to me.

I hope people are doing well. <3

I like how every once in a while, I will be like "wow, I need to update Dreamwidth"...but then I don't. So I apologize, for those who are subscribed to me. Or maybe you don't really care, lol.

Life's pretty decent right now, thankfully. I'm pleased with how things are working out, even if I'm stressed out sometimes.

I hope people are doing well. <3

I still dream

So I took my driving test for the first time last Saturday and failed it, le sigh. I'm taking it again this coming Saturday, hnnngg.

I've been feeling tired from school and finals, but at least I still have enough energy to get out of bed in the mornings. That's a good sign, and I hope it stays that way.

This summer, I'm thinking of working for a performing arts camp somewhere in the area. I think it would be fun. :) Hopefully I can get a job like that.

I got out a French workbook from the library, and I think I'll try to work on some of the exercises over break. I really love the language, and I'd like to refresh my knowledge of it.

I wish more of my friends were on Dreamwidth. I think it's a much nicer site than LJ. :3

this is your life and there ain't no way out

I suck at making this an activist-y blog. Bleh. Lately, I've been in sort of a bad place, and it's hard to even read articles about various oppressions. I think it's all the stress from finals and stuff.

So, yeah. Maybe this should just be a regular journal. I dunno.

a quick update

I've decided I'll do a links roundup-type post soon. :) Just letting people know in case they care, haha.

So like I said, I want to turn this into an activist-y blog. But I dunno where to start. Should I just do link-roundups and commentary? Should I post personal experiences? What do people think?

good girls go to heaven

Idk I felt like updating here instead of LJ. Too bad no one will read this, lol.

I changed my DW name! Apparently, I'm in a Kate Bush mood. :3

Last night I was feeling under the weather, but I slept about 11 hours, and now I feel a lot better, except for a scratchy throat. There's a wine-tasting tonight at the library, which might be exciting, and I'm glad I feel well enough that I can go. Knock on wood, though.

Anyway, I've been out of the loop re: activist stuff, but I kind of want to use this journal for political/activist-y type things. My LJ will be more personal (it's flocked), but this journal will remain public unless I feel the need to lock entries for whatever reason.

Also, if anyone cares, I have a tumblr, in case anyone wants to follow me. I feel like I don't post a lot of anti-oppression articles on there, but that's mainly because no one seems to do trigger warnings. :| I have a few followers who have suffered traumatic events, and I don't want to upset/trigger them, so that's part of the reason why I won't reblog stuff about certain subjects. I mainly reblog/post broadway stuff, picspams of my favorite tv shows/fandoms/ships, people I find attractive (lol shallowness), and pictures of cats. :3

I hope everyone is doing well. <3

la la la

hey yo

I should probably update this more, because I really love DW. It's just so quiet over here as compared to LJ. D: But I think it's...idk, more interesting here? People seem more willing to engage in analysis and deconstruction, which is good, imo.

So this is just a post to show that I'm still alive, and that things are going all right in my life.

a freckle on the nose of life's complexion

It's not even June yet, and I'm already bored, haha. And stressed about internships, too. Ugh.

Anyway, this entry is really about nothing. Hm. I should find a way to make my life less boring.

little bird, little bird, little bird

I overdosed.

But I'm alive. That's what counts, right?

I guess I need some advice. If anyone has anything, can you IM me @ looks like sodom? I'd greatly appreciate it.

nightswimming deserves a quiet night

I'm really stressed out due to finals/me almost failing my math class/doing extra credit for another class/my room being a mess/not having a lot of money/etc. I am not stressed out about the play I'm in. Funny how that works. When I do things I love, I don't get as freaked out as easily about them.

I just wish I could do them all the time. Just act and write poetry as much as possible.

Speaking of poetry, I might post some of my stuff here. Would people like that, or does that seem too navel-gaze-y? I mean, I like my poetry, but I realize I'm not the next Sylvia Plath or anything.

Also: I'm sort of lonely, sometimes.

signal boostage!

Hey, I want to tell everyone about a good charity you can donate to--I was told about this one a few years ago, and I try to donate to them every year.

Oyate is:

“a Native organization working to see that our lives and histories are portrayed honestly, and so that all people will know our stories belong to us. For Indian children, it is as important as it has ever been for them to know who they are and what they come from. For all children, it is time to know and acknowledge the truths of history. Only then will they come to have the understanding and respect for each other that now, more than ever, will be necessary for life to continue.”

I donated 10 bucks, which is the suggested minimum. I think it's really important, so. :)

Hope everyone has a good weekend! ♥

sing a song of forgetting, again

-- I feel a lot safer updating here than Livejournal. I'm not sure why. I think I might want to move to DW permanently, but I don't know that many people on here. oh well.

-- I did my hair like Natalie Dormer today, with a braid in the front. I am pleased. :3

-- I got into a debate about mental illness with someone on LJ, and they actually apologized. It was really nice of them to own up to their privilege, and it was a relief for me, because I didn't have many spoons for the argument.

Idk what else to say. I've been using a lot of "I" statements in this post, and it makes me feel self-centered.

my mind is as clear as country air

Oh good Christ, I can't sleep. :| So now I'm awake at 5:30 AM, with a busy day ahead of me. :|||||
I shouldn't have had that energy drink earlier this evening--it got me too wired. And I can feel myself crashing, now. Ugh.

This entry is pointless.

-- I have a crush on a freshman guy. >.>

-- I also have a crush on Lea Michele, because damn she can sing. And is super pretty. >.> I seriously can't stop staring at this icon, because she's so hot. fjdsahfjdsa.

-- I got cast in another show--A Pinter play, this time, called Mountain Language. It's very good and I'm excited.

-- I feel more comfortable updating this journal than my LJ. Weird.

-- I need to get laid.

if you believe they put a man on the moon, man on the moon

I'm sitting here, waiting for my dad's birthday dinner (cooked by my mother) to be done.

Some thoughts/things:

--Should I watch the new season of Doctor Who? I've never seen the show, but I kind of have a crush on Karen Gillan. And I keep hearing people squee about it. :3

--I really am thinking of getting a tattoo. So yeah. Hints, tips, average prices? Any help would be nice. :)

--I've sent my resume and cover letter to four different theatre places already--hopefully I'll hear back from one of them? I really need an internship this summer.

--I downloaded a bunch of R.E.M. and I am very pleased about this.

Uhhh, that's all. Sorry for nothing political this time around; maybe next entry or so? ♥

it takes so long to see what you've been missing

I've been listening to Passing Strange a lot tonight. It's a great musical (like, really fucking great and it should never have closed), and it means a lot to me. It's very raw and emotional, and kind of rips you to shreds by the end, which is what I love about it. I like theatre that really fucks with you, and tears apart any preconceived notions you have of the world.

That's part of the reason why, as an actress, I really like playing disturbed/disturbing characters. I like unnerving the audience, and I feel someone with a mental illness, I can connect with those characters on a certain level which I find emotionally rewarding for some reason.

But yeah. Passing Strange=awesome.
