You paid attention during 100% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

I'm am truly sorry that it has been so long since I have updated, as well as being a long time since I have read some of your blogs. I repent right now and will do my best to get back into the swing of things.

I have been fairly busy lately, although really not any more so than is normal. I went with a large group of friends to see Karolyn and Sylvia's show on Saturday. They were awesome!! I won't try to gloss over some of the show but the girls were really good.

Today the weather is beautiful. I haven't been able to go on a bike ride like I wanted to, but the weather is still great. I love the springtime. All of my flowers come up, and life is so evident. I like the winter as well, but this is the time of year where every time the weather forecast is for below freezing weather, I get a little bit worried about my plants.

I love my family. This may seem like a rather duh sort of thought to those who know me, but it is so true. I do care for my friends, and some of them have become almost like extended family. When it comes down to it though, my parents and siblings are the ones who are always there when I need them, and I love each and every one of them so much.

Even though I often get annoyed with them, I wouldn't trade them for the world. This is a picture of me and my siblings at the zoo. We went I believe in January on one of the days when the weather was great.
Well, that is all for now.

I might as well go ahead and post since I sort of left things hanging. The last day of the musical was last Sunday. Michael was able to say most of his lines, however, I had to go ahead and sing for him. This was slightly less stressful than the day before just because I knew what was going on. During intermission though we had a little scare. Michael didn't know whether or not he would be able to say his lines for the second act due to his voice wearing out. I went ahead and read the first scene for him because he didn't really want the director to have to do it again. It went really well and he was able to do the rest of the show.

That was it for the show, I got nice gifts, lots of complements, etc... The next day I woke up sick. Blah. That is why I haven't updated until know. I have been rather out of it. The good news is that I am officially caught up with all of my homework and have none to do over the weekend. It is late so this is all for know. Signing out,


AKA The Perfect and Magnificent One.

Wow part 2

I thought yesterday was stressful, hah! Today was way more stressful. I got a call this afternoon that the lead in the musical who I shall now reveal as Michael was doing worse. When I got to the school to get ready I was informed that I would be singing the entire show. Wow, what can I say about that? Not that there was any pressure or anything, after all, this is only the entire show that we are talking about!! Michael was going to try and speak his lines but after the first scene he could barely whisper. Because of this the director had to read his lines, while directing the orchestra, while I filled in on all of the songs.

It was slightly crazy to say the least. We are still praying for Michael, it would be awesome if he could do the show tommorow, but we don't know what is going to happen. The show went well, but it was crazy. I would have to say my own lines for one scene and then race over to the other side of the stage for the next scene. We don't have a backstage area at all so if you need to get over to the other side of the stage you have to go all the way around.

I messed up a little several times, one of the horses is more like silk than milk, but nobody really noticed. We were able to make it through the show, but it was a crazy ride. I really don't think I realized how stressed I was until after I got home.

Well, that is all for now. I will update on how tommorows show goes. Hopefully everything will go as it should, but it seems that you never know around here.

Wow, can I go to sleep now?

Well, I wanted to blog and let those of you who have no idea know what is going on in my life. I can sum it up in one simple word. Musical. My school is doing Oklahoma this year. It has been a lot of fun but it has definitely been stressful.

This was opening night, and it went really well, but let me tell you what led up to it.

This morning we received a call that my good friend Chris had the stomach flu really bad. In case you don't know, Chris is in the musical. When I got to school there were quite a few kids worried about him. The director had one of the other guys in the show start to learn the part. I went on my way and delivered announcements like I normally do. I forgot that it was Friday, and on Friday we have mass, and that I was supposed to do the first reading. Whoops. One of the teachers covered for me, and it worked out. During mass though, the director of the musical took me aside and told me that I needed to go ahead and learn all of the music for the lead part.

The kid who plays Curly in the show walked into school this morning, and he could barely talk let alone sing. He was immediately sent home, and I had to go ahead and learn all of his music. There was a whole group of kids including myself who just skipped half of our classes today to learn stuff for the musical. Not only did they have to replace Chris's acting part, but also his singing and dancing.

Needless to say, everyone was rather stressed. After 6th period I had learned as much as I could of all the music. I was exhausted, so I went home and slept for the rest of the school day.

When I got to the school at 5:30 for practice, we had another problem. One of the boys in the chorus was throwing up in the bathroom, can this day get any better? I had everything worked out in case the lead needed me to sing for him. We took care of the kid who was throwing up and I got his solo.

When the time came to start the show we were all rather stressed, but as soon as we got on stage things started to flow. I can't say that everything went off without a hitch, but it went very well. I ended up not having to sing for the lead after all, he made it through the entire show. It all worked out, and we did end up having fun.

We really missed Chris, but it looks like he should be able to make it to the Saturday Performance.

I suppose that is all for now. Also, thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday, it was a happy birthday for sure.
