I saw Twilight at midnight!

I know, I know. I have gone on and on enough about this movie. You are probably SO sick of reading about it. You're probably wondering, "is this girl insane?". So I'm not going to say much. Shocked? You should be. I'm not gonna give anything away. But I am going to say that I am not the most obsessed Twilight fan out there. Let's just say that the midnight showing was crazy! Anyways, to sum up my entire experience I will just say...

It was fantastic.
go see it.

Twilight: 4 more days!

I would like to take this time to say that in just FOUR DAYS I will be going to see Twilight at midnight! I'm going with my sister and one of her friends. I am SO excited! Tonight we're going to a Twilight movie premier party at Borders. I'm very interested to see what they do at these kinds of things. I'm so obsessed, heh. I am going with one of my best friends, and it's fun to be obsessive with her. Although, I'm kinda afraid that we're going to walk in and be the only people that showed up. Hah, that would be SO embarrassing. 

So I just wanted to remind you that Twilight is coming out this Friday (11-21-08). Can you tell I'm excited? 

Also, sorry I haven't had much time to blog lately (explains why my posts have been so short). I would post some reviews, but I haven't had time to read anything. Maybe I'll post a review on The Odyssey when I'm done reading it for school. 
Have a good week!

shows for The Secret Garden

So, I found out that my show dates are Thursday, December 4 at 6pm and Saturday December 7 at 1pm.

Maybe you've noticed that I don't seem very excited? If so, you're right. This play has caused me to wonder about all the other acting opportunities out there. I have been so focused on getting roles at my school, but maybe it's time to branch out of my little bubble and try something new. Plus, I just don't know how much more stress I can handle from the plays at my school (Emily and Traci, you know what I am talking about).

Just a thought, who knows?

Things are so crazy right now! Time is just moving too fast, I wish everything would just slooow down. Anyways, I thought I would give you some updates on what's been going on in my crazy, hectic life.

The Secret Garden is really coming along (as the performance nears on December 4). I was REALLY worried about it at first. A week ago, nobody knew their lines and our director was threatening to cancel the play (yikes!). So on Wednesday and Friday she had cast 1 run through the play, and it was basically an audition. If you didn't know your lines, then you were pretty much out of the play. Also, how well you perform determines the amount of shows you get. But, everyone did amazing! I have been dreading this performance for months, because I knew how bad it was. Now, I am so excited! Everyone did such a fantastic job, it's actually coming together. Emily Ficken is doing such a phenomenal job playing Mary, I'm so proud of her. Unfortunately, I am in cast 2, which means my "audition" is this week. I don't have a huge part, so there is really not much I can mess up. But, I'm praying that it all goes well..I don't usually do very well under intense pressure! I will let you know by Thursday how everything went/what shows I got.

I have decided that I can't do NaNoWriMo. I REALLY want to, you have no idea how much. It's just not very realistic for me right now. I have so much homework and school stuff to do, it's insane. I figure that I can't really have much of a career as an author if I flunk out of high school (not to mention the fact that I also wouldn't be able to get into college), so I really need to focus on my school stuff. I've been feeling really behind lately on my writing, I feel like I just don't have time to write anymore, and that makes me feel kind of sad. I mean, this is something I really want to pursue..sometimes I just feel like maybe it won't ever happen. But the other night I found a Bible verse that really encouraged me. It's from Hebrews 11:1 and it says," Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." I was like, wow, this completely applies to me! So no matter what ANYONE says, I know I am going to be an author, one way or another, it's going to happen. I just know that writing is what I was meant to do, I can't even explain it..I just know. I'm not exactly sure of the journey, but I am certain of the destination. But for now I am going to focus on school, whether I want to or not.

Oh, and can you believe that Twilight is only 19 days away!? I feel like screaming I am so excited! Tickets are on sale at some theaters for the midnight release. I am debating and whether to get them now, or wait. There is a theatre REALLY close to my house, but they said that they won't even know if they will have a midnight release until a week before. But, there is a theatre kinda close, but also kinda far away. It's like 15-30 min. away from my house. They have already started selling tickets for a midnight release. So, I am not sure if I should go ahead a buy those tickets or wait and see if the other theatre has them. But if I wait, then the other tickets might be sold out! Any ideas? Oh, and I got a Twilight shirt! It says "Team Edward" on the front and on the back it says "What if I'm not the hero? What if I'm the bad guy?" I love it!(Thanks Sami)

Ok, my last piece of news. And it's the most exciting (for me at least). Sarah Palin is coming to Raleigh and I am going to see her speak, today! I'm super excited, I love Sarah Palin. I'm hoping that I can actually get in, thousands of people are turned away from these kinds of things all the time. Yikes.

So now, I'm off to do homework for the day, fun? I think not.
Have a good weekend!
