Your least favorite song– Anything and everything Justin Beiber has or will sing.
A song that makes you happy– Stacy’s Mom. It’s just such a silly song, and it reminds me of when I did cheerleading, because they always played it at competitions, before the awards.
A song that makes you sad– Because of You- Kelly Clarkson It’s a sad song, and it reminds me of my mom.
A song that reminds you of someone– Every song reminds me of someone. I have an internal playlist for every one of my friends.
A song that reminds of you of somewhere– None. Songs don’t remind me of places, because places aren’t important to me. it doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you have people you love around you.
A song that reminds you of a certain event– This One’s For the Girls- Martina McBride. Reminds me of my first day of high school.

So, I decided to do I Could Have Danced All Night for my audition, as you know. So I’ve been listening to a bunch of versions, and guess who also sang this song?
- He’s dead.
- You Love him.
- He was one hot biscuit when he was younger.
Yes, Frank Sinatra. It’s actually not that bad, considering it’s a total girl song.

I’m looking forward to a few things, actually. Preperations for the musical start this month, for starters! I emptied my phone battery by watching a bunch of videos of songs i want to do for auditions. I’ve narrowed it down to five songs:
- What You Own- Rent
- Tomorrow- Annie
- I Could Have Danced All Night– My Fair Lady
- I Feel Pretty- West Side Story
- To Sir, With Love– To Sir, With love
I have found karaoke versions of the first two songs, so those are more likely to get chosen right now, but I’ve only been looking for a day or so. I filled up my calender yesterday with my friends’ birthdays, sleepovers, and Musical preparations. Once the schedule for our class’s second show, it’s going to be even more full, the poor thing! But it’s worth it, because I love acting, I love my friends, and I love the Music man, which is this year’s musical, in case I forgot to mention that earlier.
I am also looking forward to turning 18, which is 4 months from today. I’ll be a grown up, finally! And a couple months after that I’ll have my license, and I’ll be two huge steps closer to freedom!

Hmm… A time when i was most proud of myself? In 2010? The musical. I am not a very ‘out there’ kind of person. I can’t stand the thought of someone judging me. So for me to stand up in front of friends, family, AND strangers, singing and dancing? Kind of a big thing for me. I love singing, so much so that if I’m around people who would not enjoy an impromptu concert, I mouth the words to myself. But for some reason, I get nervous around people, and on a stage. Same with dancing. I’m pretty good with choreographed dances, but combined with the stage, and the singing… It just is way overwhelming. But I did it! I got up there and sang my heart out, and danced until my feet hurt really, really bad.
Yeah, either the musical, or this year in Algebra, when I finally understood what it was we were doing instantly. Moseley even used MY paper as an answer key! MY PAPER!
I never thought I’d find an all time favorite song, let alone on that was popular with other people my age (We as a whole have shitty taste. it’s okay. Embrace it!), but I can’t help but love Just the Way You Are. Bruno Mars has always amoosed me, ever since they were on Saturday Night Live, but I was pretty much indifferent, as far as songs go. But this song is pretty much perfect. It’s my go to shower song, my go to sad and wanna feel happy song, my everything song! Such a good song, so cute. The fact that Finn sang it to Kurt has nothing to do with it, surprisingly enough!
I love music. Be it hard rock, pop, or even classical, I eat it up. Well, minus what my friends and I have dubbed ‘poser’ music. You know. Rap… R&B… that stuff. It’s the one thing my whole family, all corners, love and agree on. Other families have reunions, and games nights. We sing. In the car, in the house… anywhere and everywhere. And we’re pretty good, if I do say so myself. My aunt even auditioned for American Idol this past summer! I base most of my relationships on how musically compatible we are, for God’s sake. I know that if I hand a friend a flashdrive and say, “here, give me your music.” that I’ll enjoy a majority of it. And i know that singing is the only thing I have that is a constant in my life. I know I’m not amazing. Hell, I’m probably not even great, but it’s what I have. I’m sad? Throw in some Rascal Flatts. I’m feeling broken hearted? Some angry Kelly Clarkson. I’m happy? Anything from the 90’s. There’s a song, artist, and genre for every mood. It’s that stability that draws me like a moth to flame, or a blind person to sound. As corny as it sounds, music truly is my life. It connects me to what makes me, me. Sorry if this seems insanely random, and rambling, bt-dub. It’s midnight, and I’m SO drained, it’s quite sad, really. So I’m going to leave this here, before I go crazy! Bye!
So, i was searching for this band i’d heard about in passing a few weeks ago, Dogstar. and guess, just guess who’s in it? (well, was in it.) Only my most recent celeb crush, Keanu Reeves!! i somehow missed out on the knowledge that he was in a band. how, i don’t know, but i did. so of course the first thing i do is google the hell out of it, trying to find somewhere where i could listen to them, and guess what? they’re good. like, even if i didn’t know who he was, i’d buy the cd. it’s kind of like… early simple plan meets… like, a super watered down seether. it’s really good. i must say, i was surprised. i don’t usually like music done by actors/actresses. it’s a personal pet peeve of mine.
