So I just got home from rehearsal for Students on Stage-a group of short student written and directed plays- it's rather SNL-esque. The play I'm in is called In Sickness and In Health, it's about a marriage counseling session for fictional characters, I'll be playing Jessica Claus, which i'm incredibly excited about. Rehearsal was a wonderful end to a not so wonderful day.
So I was going to include a little rant about why the day was not so wonderful, but I read it over and realized I sounded incredibly whiny and the things I was complaining about are rather inconsequential. Just a bit of friend drama and school woes, and I feel better since I vented to friends who aren't responsible for the drama, so instead I'm going to talk about how excited I am that there is a half day of school between myself and Christmas break. I plan to do a ton of reading and movie watching and music discovering. I still need to find a few gifts for some friends and am heading out to get that done in a little bit. I need to find really awesome gifts, one friend already gave me my gift and as if I wasn't already aware that she's an amazing person, her gift made it even clearer. She got me a vegetarian cookbook for college students, one of the chapters is titled "avoiding the freshman 15" which I'm sure I will greatly appreciate next year.
Aside from making delicious meat free food, the prospect of college is really exciting to me. I'm really looking forward to living on my own rather than depending on my parents, I haven't really felt like a child for quite some time, so I don't care much for being treated like one. There's also a chance I'm romanticizing the idea of the first few years after college. Call me crazy, but I'm kinda looking forward to surviving in some cheap little apartment with very little money, (picture Pieces of April) I'm quite low maintenance, all I really need is a bed, my beloved lap top named Lolita, and a kitchen and a bathroom. Oh, and a coffee maker of course. But romanticized or not, I'm sure it will be better than living a life that somebody else chose for me.
So that's what's going on in my head right now. Peace!
