Part One of...?

It sure has been a while, Killjoys, but I'm back and (maybe) better than ever!

My sister and I went to see MSI at the end of March, and it was amazing! Even though the only other show I'd been to was Pentimento/Dads/Reggie and the Full Effect, I must say MSI was the best show I've attended. The Bunny The Bear opened the show, and people were a lot less enthusiastic for them. I, however, tried (and succeeded!) in getting into it. They are a good band, but I was more enthusiastic for MSI.

By the way, does anyone know the name of the blonde guitarist for The Bunny The Bear? I met him after the show (pictured here) but I didn't get his name. I just think he's amazing because:

1. He can sing.
2. He plays guitar.
3. He screams.
4. He's really cute.

Can Anyone Do Me a Favor?

Okay, some of you know that I have a Deviant Art Account, and those who do also know that I am not very active on it. Still, I want to start posting some more of my work on there and get some coverage other than from my mom and sister. I have a few drawings done, and I posted one of them on there a few weeks ago. Could someone look at it and see what you think? The link is below.

It is Killjoy related... *hint hint*

There will be more of them posted soon, whether you like it or not. I mean that in the nicest of ways, of course.

Stay shiny,

I Just...I Can't

I just wanted to express my excitement to someone...

MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE FOLLOWED ME ON TWITTER!

Even if they unfollow me, I am excited because they follow me for now. YAY!

I didn't even have to sacrifice any babies for them. :)

Stay shiny,

Oh Boy...

So much for daily posts. Sorry it's been so long, but I've just been so busy!

Work is going well, school's going okay, and the musical is actually coming together. I know, I'm just as surprised as you are! Given my complaints, that is. This week is the opening, and I'm actually pretty excited. The first show was supposed to be tonight, but it was cancelled because our basketball team made it to District Finals. Instead, we will have a very short rehearsal. I mean, I'm proud of our boys and all, but I wish we didn't have to cancel a show.

Go Big Blue, right?

Scrapbooks Full of Me in the Background

Let me get one thing straight: Theater is my life. Singing, performing, and acting are three things that get me through the day. There is no better therapy for me than performing a song in my room, belting it out with all the emotion and depth I can muster. I don't want to work at McDonalds for the rest of my life. I need to act. It's not a want, but a purely unadulterated need. If I'm doing something other than acting with my life in twenty years, slap me in the face and bring me to a casting call.

School Spirit?

It is finally Friday. The school week is done once again and I sit here waiting for rehearsal to start. Now we had a pep rally, and...well, it pretty much sucked. It could be because I am so fucking tired, it could be because I haven't had any coffee yet today, or because it just plain sucked. I also didn't appreciate getting yelled at (not just me, but the entire high school) for sitting down during the alma mater.

Quick thing: I usually try and get pumped up. All the administration and pep club are trying to do is make people excited about something. Also, while I'm excited to get the hell out of here I do actually tolerate my school most of the time. I'd say I love it and am proud of it, but I'm just not feeling the love today. Today, though, I am just so freaking tired and not looking forward to work. :(

Earbud Split

We all listen to MCR, but it is kind of cool listening with only one bud. To be specific, it is cool/annoying to listen to "You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison" with one bud. It is cool, because you only hear half of the song. Unfortunately, it is annoying for the same reason. There are actually a few songs that do this, but that is the one I've listened to most recently.

*cough* MCR is on shuffle *cough*

My sister and I found this out sharing earbuds once, but I unfortunately have no choice this time. I lost my good pair of earbuds, so I have to use the pair with one blown out. :/ Hopefully, I can make it to Wal Mart to get a new pair.

Excitement!!!

There are only 11 days until my sister and I go to see Reggie and the Full Effect! I also found out the other bands that are going to be there: Pentimento and Dads. I am not familiar with these bands, but I just got both of their most recent EPs so I can familiarize myself with them. From what I've heard so far, they rock!

Quick Question: Is it bad I wasn't really familiar with any of these bands before I bought the tickets in November, but wanted to see them because of James' and Frank's affiliation with My Chemical Romance? In a way, they just led me to other bands.

However you become a fan, right....right?

Always with love,

Props and Mayhem

There are two reasons this one is titled "Props and Mayhem":

1. It is my favorite song by Pierce the Veil.
2. I am currently listening to it on repeat, the reason being it is the only one I am in the mood to listen to.

This week went by quickly! I kept myself busy this weekend with cleaning, drinking coffee, and fanfiction. For one, the house is finally freaking clean! That pile of laundry by the back door? Gone! The living room? Clean! My room? I just need to make the bed when I get home. I am pretty damn proud of myself, basically. Hooray for productivity!

I Failed

Midterms were this week, and I didn't think it would be too bad. I was wrong.

I think I did pretty well on the Spanish midterm, but I just know I failed the Chemistry and Calculus. If I'd have just studied, I might've done alright. But, no. I chose to squander my time with fanfiction and television. I have no one to blame but myself.

Today was the second half of the Calculus midterm, and I knew I wasn't going to do well. Not only did I not study, I didn't know what to study because my teacher has been out all week due to a family emergency. To top it all off, the sub's phone started ringing in the middle of it and he had no qualms about answering it and having a full conversation while we were testing. I just...I can't.
