I have recently realized I have a great love of sail boats.
It’s the only kind of transportation my heart really understands, and that is beautiful to me.
It kind of sounds like flying.
Learning to sail is slowly creeping in to my life goals list.
Some spur of the moment poetry from yesterday.
I would like to write more.

Teddy Geiger taught me to shade faces.
I still can remember how excited I was after I went to his concert in Vancouver. I was in my pink and green face and me and my mom waited outside for hours so we could get good spots. I was buzzing, so hyper, when we came home, and I got out my journal and wrote about everything. Then I drew that first picture. Thats the exact moment shadows clicked for me. I couldn’t draw them, and then I could. While I was still in Vancouver I drew a couple other Teddy pictures. It’s funny how sometimes you really can pinpoint when something snaps in to place, you didn’t understand it, and then you did. I don’t listen to Teddy Geiger much anymore, but I’d like to do that same drawing a third time, to see how my artistic skills have improved since then.
Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. it’s like forever, always changing. for any of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. you can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. what you have to decide is how you want your life to be. if your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?

I feel at home on stage.
Tonight was a great show.
I think my math teacher would appreciate this.
This reminded me of treasure island. I don’t much care for cars or trains or plains or ferries, but sailing boats, theres something beautiful and strong and wild about them. I’d like to learn to sail one day, it would be one of the biggest challenges I can imagine facing, I’m a little scared of all that water, of being trapped somewhere, but I’d love to just see ocean in every direction, see a world I’ve never seen before.
that theatre kids have had exclusive clubs. I’ve always loved plays and musicals, and when I was younger I was in a sort of awe of the actors in them, in some ways I still am. Now that I’m in a big production (relative to all the other plays I’ve been in at least) I still feels that there are exclusive clubs. However now I realize that just being in a play doesn’t make you a member in good standing, some people are really tight and others are sort of accepted while some are simply disliked. There will always be a food chain. I’m not at the top, but I’m not at the bottom either, and I’ve made some great friends in the production of Treasure Island. Some cast members are simply friendly and accepting of everyone, which seems much more professional than forming cliques, in my opinion at least. However, I want to be sure to mention that the entire cast has done an amazing job in this production and they all seem to be nice people. I’m just nitpicking now. The show was great tonight, and its probably the most fun I’ve had doing a play.
