“Time to doubt

To break out

Its a mess

Time to grow

Time to go

Adolesce

To young to take over

To old to ignore”

In less than a week I will be 18 years old. I’ve been looking forward to being 18 for as long as I can remember but now that its so close i cant believe it. I’ve gained so much life experience in these last 17 years namely surviving a car accident, living on my own for short periods of time, surgeries, bad relationships, death of close friends and family… Most of which all happened within the past year… All this makes me wonder, what do the years ahead of me hold? Knowing that I was able to get through the challenges that I’ve had makes me feel ready for anything that may come my way.

The quote above is from one of my favorite shows, A Chorus Line. First off, DON’T watch the movie version. Secondly, if you haven’t seen it try to catch the current tour. I saw it when it came through Houston and (even though i have very high expectations for this show) i thought this cast did fairly well. Thirdly, you should go rent and/or buy the movie, “Every Little Step”, which documents the casting process of the recent Broadway Revival of the show. I’ve always particularly liked the Montage Sequence in the show. Each character describes making that transition into adulthood… what I’m going through right now. Ever since I was young I could tell i had a lot of maturity for my age but i’m now getting to the point where i’m actually becoming an adult. i’m not just acting like one. its a scary and exhilarating thought. knowing i don’t have very much longer in my teens is crazy. i feel like i just turned 13 yesterday.

i guess my theme for this blog entry is no matter how old you are to just enjoy your age. Embrace it and enjoy your life. Each day we can find amazing things.

thats all for now…

Smoothies with G

Met up with G the other day for smoothies at Bubble Island.

This girl rocks my socks.

She could be the next woman president if she wanted to.

But she’ll settle for being a fantastic Harvard graduate architect.

note: g and i were being headband models together. i was wearing olga by lovetaza and gina was wearing kelly-white by kedesigns. both stores are highly recommendable!

love always!

something i’ve always wondered

One of my favorite opening songs in a musical is called “Another Op’nin, Another Show” from Kiss me Kate. In the song, there are these lyrics,

“Four weeks you rehearse and rehearse.

Three weeks and it couldn’t be worse.

One week-will it ever be right?

Then out of the hat its that big first night.”

What i’ve always wondered is, what about two weeks?! whats wrong with week 2?! well tomorrow is two weeks before cinderella opens and i know im not the only one stressin about it!
