OH HAI ELLJAYS. I HAZ NOT SEEN YOU THER.
My attempts to speak in lolcat fail, obviously. Also, hi everyone!
You see, I'm updating because I decided to create a new livejournal (since this one hasn't seen human contact in more than half a year); but then I realized that that is lame, because I can just start updating this one again. That way, I wouldn't have to re-add everyone, recreate my layout, et cetera. So... hooray? Yes. I just don't want to abandon elljay completely. Having a basic account after having a paid account is rather distressing, though. But, it appears the advertisements that plague most basic accounts haven't found me yet! Hah! That is some bullshit by the way; putting ads on people's journals is awful. I mean, ads on websites in general piss me off, but on actual journals? Guhhh.
Anyway, I won't make a long & detailed list of my summer vacation/beginning of the year exploits, and instead I'll just give the highlights:
I was in a terrible production of Into the Woods this summer, despite the fact that it was with the Willows Theatre Company, which is usually incredible. That was rather disappointing.
But the, at the end of summer vacation, I went on a road trip to Seattle with my friend Tyler to see the preview shows of Young Frankenstein (which was completely incredible, by the way), and basically just hang out in the most glorious city west of New York. Also, it was quite fantastic to have someone like Tyler to help me stalk Sutton Foster/Roger Bart/Megan Mullally. It was pretty fantastic. But then school started 3 days later.
Now: JUNIOR YEAR. Gahhh, I have no energy anymore. Taking AP Psychology, AP US History, AP Language/Composition, French 3 Honors, Pre-Calculus, and Chemistry plus being a president of Red Cross Club, belonging to several other clubs, plus being on the improv team, plus devoting 3 hours after school to the drama production... basically, I implode daily. Which is partially due to my constant meltdowns concerning college admission. It's bizarre to think that some people I know arn't even thinking about it... wow. But anyway, yes, I survive on miniscule amounts of sleep, supplemented by semi-dangerous amounts of caffeine. Yay.
But, anyway, it's THANKSGIVING BREAK this week (well, only 4 days are left, but...), which is fantastic. Me and my family (plus Tyler) were going to go to L.A. over break, but various family emergencies prevented that from happening... so, I'm stuck in Benicia for all of break, which kind of sucks, but I've managed to make it vaguely amusing. Like purchasing the entire first season of Flight of the Conchords on DVD! Yay! It's my absolute favorite new show (note the icon).
So, yes. How are you all (my collective LJ flist)?
