Rehearsal- Please Start!

Could someone please inform my rehearsal schedule for West Side Story and Antigone that they need to hurry up and start? I feel theatre deprived.

By the way, I got a script for Antigone yesterday and my part (Ismene) really isn't as big of a character as I thought. Discovering that was kinda awful. 

Something kinda wonderfully weird happened today, though. I looked in a pocket in my back pack that I never use, and I found an unopened pack of tic-tacs. Instead of being freaked out, I gladly excepted them as an early birthday gift from my backpack. Under the assumption that unopened equals not poison, I ate about the whole box of them today. How else am I supposed to keep myself awake in Spanish?

I can't tell you all exactly when (you know, avoiding stalkers) but sometime in the future I will be going to New York City for the first time EVER! *throws confetti* Unfortunately, I won't be able to see a Broadway musical (darn budget) but I'll probably end up stopping at every theatre I walk by and just staring at it. For three hours.

I need who ever has been to New York before to suggest fun things for me to do. Please comment with ideas! 

And now for a photo of me with my head in a wreath-

Whatever you do, don't order room service!

My mom was on a trip recently and had to stay in a hotel. If you've ever been a hotel, chances are you've seen the little cards that they put on night stands with the name of the person who cleaned your room.

Upon returning to her room, my mom was greeting by this fun little surprise-

I don't know about you people, but I'd be checking out before I saw this through my peep hole-

Oh Sally...

I think we've all been down the road of crushing on someone so hard that it's more of an obsession than a crush. One of my friends (lets pretend her name is Sally) had one of the biggest, most obsessive crushes I've ever seen.

The funny thing about this is that even though the guy is three years older then her, Sally is about a half a foot taller than him.

Another funny thing is that they met over a bowl of cheese. No joke. Their first conversation was while our class was cooking something and everyone was gathering their ingredients. The conversation was as follows-

As you can see, they're definitely made for each other.

My brain was just sat on by a sumo wrestler.

Or so it felt.

It's just my luck that as I tried to get at least a few hours of sleep before going black friday shopping, I get a massive headache that wouldn't even let me lay down, let alone sleep. It was a weird sort of headache- it was mostly just pressure, and depending on how my head was positioned, it would hurt more or less. It was really bad when I laid on my right side, but then I would roll over to the middle and the pain would lessen for a moment, but then come back, full force.

So I found myself in a miserable game of  'How can I sit to where my head doesn't feel like it's going to explode?'

Around 1 o'clock I gave up and went downstairs to get some ibuprofen. 

Let me tell you, when you mix sleep deprivation, head pain, and a very dark kitchen, you're not going to get anything good. Especially if you're as crazy and paranoid as I am and you can't even go near the window because there aren't any curtains and you automatically assume a serial killer is out there staring at you. 

So I got the medicine, wildly sprinted up the stairs to escape the imaginary serial killers, and after about twenty minutes I FINALLY fell asleep.

And then I had a dream about a serial killer. 

Guess who didn't sleep for more than twenty minutes last night.

Some Friends of Mine...

I'd like to introduce some of my friends from school whom I've convinced to join blogger. 

I think having some followers might motivate them to post more, so check them out!

Salinna's blog- Rawr I'm a Dinosaur 

Nick's blog- Navi's Blog

Cameron's blog- Forever My Own 

They're all used to Tumblr, so everyone give them a warm Blogger welcome!

Ask Abby Answers! (#2)

Here it is, back again since everyone wanted it. No video this week, but I'll still answer the questions.

Lexy- I was just wondering who you trust with everything and who you go to when you need a shoulder to cry on or whatever? 

Well I have a few really close friends and of course my family, so I don't really have anyone in particular. 

Justin- What's your absolute dream role in any play? 

I haven't seen enough plays to have a specific dream role, but it would super fun to play the lead in an play I wrote because then I could really portray the character how I imagined it.

Fiona- How do I feel comfortable being myself?

First off Fiona, you have to realize that there is one YOU. And you were born to be that person. It sounds really cliche, but it's so true.  Here, I found a few quotes that might help you-

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
― Dr. Seuss

“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”
― Judy Garland

“If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So all in all Fiona, just be yourself! The moment you just forget about what other people might think of you, I promise you'll be happier. 

Claudia- Whenever I talk to my bff, recently she doesnt ever listen to what I'm saying. She only talks about whats going on in her life. And when I bring something up thats going on with me, she doesn't even pretend to care, or even just ignores it all together. I feel like I dont matter to her anymore. Help?

It would be really easy for me to just tell you to forget about her and find a new best friend, but I know that's not how this works at all. Unfortunately, sometimes when you're really good friends with someone, they might start to take you for granted. I suggest you talk to her about it and make sure she knows how you're feeling. You know, because she can't change if she doesn't know what she's doing wrong. But whatever you do, no matter how upset you are, don't make her feel like you're attacking her about it because that can never end well.

Sarah J- Your bangs are really cute! How do you cut and style them? What products do you use? And btw I love this whole ask abby thing, I feel like you should put it up on youtube or something, you would get popular. 

Thanks! It's really not difficult to style them, all you do is cut them to a length about an inch past your eyebrow, and then swoop the bangs over to the side you want them to be on. Then trim them so they're a little shorter towards the middle of your face and a little bit longer towards your ear. Then what I do (because my hair is naturally wavy) is straiten them with a hair straightener and curl it in a little bit at the ends (you can do this with a straightener) just so it swoops to the side. And I don't really need to use any product on my bangs, but I guess depending on how your hair holds being straightened, you might need a bit of hairspray. 

And I don't think I would take this to YouTube because it's much easier to just type it out instead of doing a video, the videos answer will be only for the weeks with less questions.

Dave- Do cheezits contain nicotine? And why are you vegetarian? 

After extensive research on the nicotine content of Cheezits, I've come to the conclusion that Cheezits do not contain any Nicotine. I'm sorry.

And to make a long story short, I'm a vegetarian because I like my animals alive. 

Well that took me an eternity to type.

Breanne Düren - "Gold Mine"

I LOVE this song! The music video is a bit odd, but nonetheless, I love the song.

Ask Abby Again? How about no...

Technology right now is making me want to just quit modern civilization and live in a cabin in the woods for the rest of my life. 

Blogger can't even manage to upload a two minute video without problems. 

Not cool, Blogger. Not cool.

So you can go right ahead and say goodbye to 'Ask Abby' because there is absolutely no convenient way for me to continue to answer all these questions. 

I'll answer all the questions that were sent to me already just through email, and that will just become a contact page from now on.

Sorry guys.

Good news!

Unfortunately the musical auditions didn't go too well (I'm still in ensemble)

But I also auditioned for a another play and got the second biggest female lead! 

I'm going to be Ismene in the play "Antigone" 

It's great because it's the first serious play I've ever been in, all of the other's I've done were comedies. 

Anyone heard of it?

West Side Story!

I know I told you all a while ago that I made ensemble in my school's musical. Well unfortunately that musical was canceled, but my school is now doing West Side Story.

All the people who were cast in the first musical are automatically in the cast of West Side Story, but we have to re-audition for lead roles. Auditions are tomorrow and the girls have to sing "I Feel Pretty" and "One Hand, One Heart."

If you haven't heard the songs, they're both sung with really high notes so I'm not sure how I'm going to do with them. So...I guess we'll see.

But I watched the movie for the first time a few days ago, and I can't wait to be a part of it.

New Layout!

The header is actually my own handwriting.

So what do you think? 

Abby Noel 

Friday, November 11, 2011

New Layout? I Think Yes.

I'm kind of starting to hate my layout, I've had it for so long. 

I'm thinking of getting something lighter and happier-looking. 

I seriously hate even looking at right now, it's just so....Bleh.

Thoughts? Do you think I should change it?

Ways to Entertain Yourself at the Bus Stop

One of the worst parts of my day is when I have to brave the cold and stand at my bus stop. I was thinking, and what makes it so bad is how bored I get. Most days I have my iPod to entertain me, but today my iPod's battery was dead and I forgot to charge it when I woke up. So there I was, facing one of the biggest dilemmas of all time- How can one entertain themselves at the bus stop?

#1- Eat an elaborate four course meal. 

#2- Paint the scenery.

#3- Karaoke. 
This might not make the neighbors too happy, but on the bright side, it'll keep anyone from wanting to kidnap you.

I guess they do things differently in Spain...

I took my Spanish midterm today and one of the questions had some interesting answer choices. To someone who didn't know a lick of Spanish, it might be difficult to choose the right answer. But if you know the vocabulary, you'd just have to be stupid to get it wrong.  

 I'd like to test all of you to see if you can figure out the answer to this question. To make it easier on you, in case you don't know what the spanish words mean, I've drawn pictures that might help. 

#24- Fill in the blank.
Ella cocina la cena en _____
(She cooks dinner in _____) 

A) La Estufa 

B) El Techo 

C) La Ducha 

Go ahead. Think about that the next time your mom cooks dinner.
