Your Deepest Desires.

I stole this tag from Bleah Briann. ^^; You can read her post here.
So pretty much, you share 7 likes, 8 hates, and 1 love... in that order.
Here's how I did it:

I like that feeling of excitement when I get a package in the mail, right before I open it
I like the scent of baking apples and cinnamon
I like having deep and meaningful conversations with the people I care about
I like when the Boyfriend holds me close and doesn't let go
I like diet soda
I like when people take the time to write me a letter
I like those days that just seem so unbelievably perfect
I hate when I get anxiety attacks for no reason
I hate when I leave all my good pens and pencils at home
I hate when adults are condescending toward me (and my peers)
I hate fighting
I hate when people tell me that I just HAVE to listen to a certain song or artist, but flat-out refuse to listen to anything I suggest
I hate when people try to put God into a box
I hate when winter lasts for more than its allotted 3 months
I hate coming up with so many things I hate :(
I love everyone who is reading this. :')

Now link this tag up to me, and then some other bloggers people you admire:

Little Shop of Horrors.

"Shing-a-ling, what a creepy thing to be happening...♪"

I have been very busy lately!
My school is putting on Little Shop of Horrors. It's so exciting! The Boyfriend is playing Mushnik (laughs). I love it because he has to wear a mustache and a fat suit!


And I'm on the crew~! A stage ninja, as I call it! I wear all black, move swiftly and silently across the stage, making objects disappear (and appear)! It's actually an incredibly fun job. I play an important part in the show, and I get to hang out backstage during those few songs where I have nothing to do! I've taken a ton of pictures.
Dan puppets Audrey II (the plant).

Josh (fellow stage ninja) feeling Mushnik's tummy.
And, of course, I get to hang out in the green room, where all the fun happens! Last night a bunch of the stage crew gathered in there and played around with the spare props (laugh). And a few days ago The Boyfriend Rick Rolled Shapley (a friend)! It was hilarious, I've never seen anyone do that in real life before.

Ian: Logan, get Shapley! Tell him there's something cool in the closet! *hides in the closet*
Logan: *comes back with Shapley*
Shapley: *opens up closet door* Wha-
Shapley: "NOO!"
I have the video up on Facebook. XD

Messing around in the green room before the opening show.

Paula and me, waiting on set for the show to start.
I'm wearing Dan's hat here, I think it looks quite good on me. :P

We had a preview show for the school on Wednesday, opening night was last night, there's a show tonight, and two more shows tomorrow! Then we're done! :( I don't want it to be over, though.... I am definitely signing up for Les Miserables, which happens to be the next show the drama club's putting on. :D

Running Up That Hill.

Let's see.... Soothing music, Arnold Palmer, something decent in my stomach for the first time today, tablet at hand.... I think I'm ready.

My apologies for not posting. How many times am I going to say that?

Life has been amazing lately. Ups and downs, yadda yadda yadda. The trimester is already coming to a close.... This makes me very sad, I wish time wouldn't pass by so quickly. I'm trying to keep a grasp on it, but sometimes I get distracted and forget, then I turn back around and a week, or two, has already passed by. Maybe a month, even.
One thing I am looking forward to regarding the new trimester, though: a new lunch. I'm hoping I'll get the same lunch as my good friend Rachel, I'd love to be able to actually spend some time with her. I want lunch with all of my friends, of course!

I've begun drawing more seriously once again. I took a break for a few months where I took pictures, but now I'm really going to try to do both. And if I can't, then I'm concentrating on the pencil!
The drawing above is a preview of something I've just started working on.

"What is the matter with these people, these people who won't stop fighting, won't stop hurting each other long enough to see that a body is a thing of beauty, is a miracle of rivers and oceans and islands and continents contained within itself?"
-All Rivers Flow to the Sea by Allison McGhee
I hate war.
I've begun, very slowly at first, but now faster and faster and faster, to see small changes within myself.... And I guess now those small changes are building up and changing me and making me a new person.... Not a different person, a new person. I guess I'm changing myself. I've noticed myself becoming a pacifist, accepting aspects of me that I was unable to accept before, I'm educating myself on religions.... And not just organized religions, but beliefs in general. I've found myself eating less than usual, but I'm also exercising. I've lost some weight, reading more, building new relationships.... I've become more tolerant, more open-minded.... Which also leads to more confusing, but I think I have most of it sorted out.
In other words, I'm growing up.
I never thought it would be quite so wonderful, so.... Freeing.

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill...
