Last Christmas...

Last Christmas I gave you my heart

But the very next day you gave it away

This year to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special


I really like illustrating songs :) Haha

It's almost Christmas
& I'm pretty excited
I love Christmas :)

It really is the most wonderful time of the year :)

Today was relaxing...
To say the least!
All I did was sleep & watch Christmas movies :) <3
I also scheduled my financial aid day for college :)
So, I didn't waste away completely.

Have a happy Wednesday :)

The Pathway to Freedom...

That's what you think...

Oh well...

I love being on Christmas break.
Yesterday was my Secret Santa gift exchange with my friends :)
I got a new argyle sweater & three pairs of argyle socks.
I couldn't have asked for a better present :)

I've got an orthodontist appointment (my very last one to be exact)
I was supposed to have one Monday at 7 AM...
But when you stay up late with your friends, it's hard to get yourself up in time...
Thank goodness my mother wasn't angry that we had to reschedule... :)
After that, I'm going spend the day with my Papa :) <3
My Nana has appointments to go to & my cousin Krissy was supposed to stay with him...
But she's stuck in London right now :O
It'd be nice any other time if it weren't so close to Christmas!
Then, I'm going to lunch with some fam :)

Veronica & I are having roommate bonding time :)
We're gonna bake cookies!
& Then all the girls are going to Wadsworth for the Basketball game.
We'll be doing some "Grizzly Huntin" & cheering on the guys :)

The Christmas season...
It always seems so jam-packed! :O

My Sweeney Todd mini musical group went thrifting for costumes!
We were very successful!
We also had a photo shoot for our program & poster :)

Back row: Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney, Johanna, Anthony
Front row: Toby, Pirelli, Beggar Woman
 After that...
I went to Target with Gea & we got some of her senior pictures printed
That I took :)
& She liked them a lot... which was awesome :)

& Even later...
Ranchel Marie & Gea and I had a mini Christmas party :)
(Ranch & I totally had footie jams on :) :) Haha)

Pretty entertaining day, huh? :)

In on recent news...
My long-lost friend Oh-Jayy & I have rekindled our friendship :)
It's pretty stellar news, actually.
He & I devised a plan on my "Pathway to Freedom" today.
I have faith that he'll come through :P

I love rekindling friendships :) Haha

Now that you all know my entire life story...


Have a happy Tuesday! :)

While Everybody Else is Getting Out of Bed...

I'm usually getting in it...
I'm not in it to win it,
& There's a thousand ways you can skin it.
My feet have been on the floor...
Flat like an idle singer.
Remember winger, I digress...
I confess you are the best thing in my life.
But I'm afraid when I hear stories about a husband & wife,
There's no happy endings, no Henry Lee...
But you are the greatest thing about me.
If it's love...
& We decide that it's forever,
No one else could do it better.
If it's love...
& We're two birds of a feather,
Then, the rest is just whatever :)

I love this song :)
I saw Train perform it live... It was awesome.

Well, I think it's safe to say...
That I'm going to be sad when the Christmas season is over :/
But we still have plenty of time :) I mean, five days..
That's a lot, right? Haha.

On Thursday...
I found out that I have to get my wisdom teeth out...
ON THE 30th!!!
That's kinda short notice... *sigh*

I'm just gonna have to make the best of it!
It won't be so bad, right?...

If my secret Santa gift exchange with my friends :)
I'm pretty excited.
We've been doing 'em every year.
BUT! This year is special because we combined two groups of secret Santas together :)
It's gonna be good :)

Well, I don't know what else to say :)
Things have been going well.
I've had a pretty interesting 2010 to say the least :P
I'm pretty interested to find out how I'll fair in 2011... :)
Don't worry...
I should be able to blog a couple more times before the year is out!
Especially if I'm gonna be bed-ridden for a while after my surgery.
Have an excellent Sunday night everyone :)

Sing Noel...

Sing Noel, Noel, Noel...
Last night was my first choir concert in four years :O
& Ironically, it's my last... well, of the "Christmas" variety anyway.

The concert was so fun.
I honestly don't know why I wasn't in choir all four years of high school...
I don't have "regrets" per say, but I wish I had done it :) Haha

When it came to the point in the concert where the seniors get to turn their stoles from orange to white...
That part got to me a little... & it really got to my mom :P
She's not going to be able to make it through my graduation!

My cousins Randy, Paul, me, & my brother Danny :)

Today was the last...
Day of school for 2010 :)
Which is pretty exciting!
Once 2011 hits... The time is seriously drawing nearer... :O

Tonight's gonna be...
A good good night :)
It's Friday.. which means BASKETBALL GAME! :)
It's away at Tallmadge tonight & my friends and I are going.
We haven't missed a game yet! :)

P.S. Christmas is almost here! Isn't it exhilarating?! :D

It's the MOST Wonderful Time of the Year... :)

It was our first snow day of the year :)
We only have three a year now.. until we have start making up days...
That's not going to happen for the seniors hopefully! :) Haha

Things have been crazy lately!
I feel like I haven't blogged in ages!

Well, time to play catch-up :)

For Musical Theatre class:
It's mini musical time!
That's when we get in small groups & put on a show.
But there's a catch! We only have 20 minutes to put on the show, while incorporating all different aspects of a musical: singing, dancing & acting!
My group is putting on Sweeney Todd :)
We're pretty darn excited to say the least! Haha :)

We're going thrifting soon to find our costumes! :) <3

Has been pretty decent.
I haven't had much too do for it lately & my mom has been questioning my lack of homework... Hahaha :P
I'm definitely not complaining :)
Also: We had a snow day today, so that was great news!
& We only have three more days of school left until break :)
Oh! & Thursday is my holiday choir concert <3

Today I spent my snow day watching Christmas movies! :)
I love Christmas :)
So much...
No one has any idea :) Haha

I'm glad I got a chance to write a little today :)
I should have more time on my hands now to write :)

Insomniac Take 2...

I'm so tired...
& I want to go to sleep...
But I just can't :P

& I'm so tired and bored that I thought I'd share :)
This might be my most insignificant blog yet... Ha

Oh well :)

We're Off To See The Wizard....

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz...

The Lion, Dorothy, Tin Man, and Scarecrow  heading into Oz! :)
If anyone missed it, my lack of blog posts was due to my hectic schedule.
I had rehearsal every day & there was just never enough time.
I had a pretty nice experience though.
It was hectic nonetheless.. But what show isn't?

Our show sold out so quickly that half the students didn't even get a chance to see it!
We were happy though, because of course, being a program of the arts, we definitely have our struggles with money & keeping afloat!
Since our levy failed though, we'll see what our status is next year!
Musical Theatre is a class at school during school, which is when we learn our stuff
(Before we start after school rehearsals that is)
[& Those start three weeks before the show opens]
So, yeah... That's basically the status on that one :P

Maybe some of you had the chance to see it!
Or maybe you've seen shows of ours in the past?
They really are impressive for high school shows.
It'd be a real shame to lose something like 'em...

I'm graduating & won't be here next year, but my brother is only a freshman... and I want him and everyone else to be offered the same opportunities that I was able to have!

Like I said, we'll see!

Me [Left] My friend Gea [Right] :)
We were Jitterbugs :)

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving :)

What in the world happened...

Whatever happened to chivalry? 

Does it only exist in 80's movies?

I want John Cusack holding a boom-box outside my window

I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. 

I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me

I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. 

Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie... 

...Preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason

But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life. 


According to the majority of the human population, yes, chivalry is dead, but I still have faith.

I have faith that someday, someone will throw rocks at my window :) Haha. I mean, it's not like I have a whole lot of time left, but I still have faith :P

This is what happened after I saw Easy A (For the second time) Haha.
I'm obsessed with the 80's all over again :)
& I really want this to happen :P

So, blog readers, you all have the inside scoop :)
You're more in the know than anyone else :P
So, feel important :)

So, that's the story of my life right now.
First person at my window with a boom-box wins :)
Haha... not really, but you'd sure be ahead of the game :P

Dang all this lack of chivalry :P

Catch Up Time...

I've been stinking at this blogging stuff lately.
I did so well during October, and November came around and I had Musical Theatre every night and things just got hectic.
Hopefully you'll all understand :)

I guess you'll all need to be caught up!
We had a really fun MT spirit week!
It was nerd day... :) Hahaha. Check out them suspenders :P Haha

Anyway, the show's coming along... But not as smoothly as I'd like to see...
We have two rehearsals left... and we haven't finished one of the dances & the scene transitions need a lot of work... not to mention we'll need to learn the curtain call still!
I'm trying to have faith in our abilities to pull something together...
But I've never been this nervous about a show before...

Not to mention having really lengthy rehearsals & having homework and school stuff to take care of.
This next week will be the craziest one to date.
.. Maybe.
But still, we'll do it.. I know we will.. We have to! :)

Aside from MT craziness... Nothing's really happened. I haven't done anything besides live at the school and work on Wizard of Oz stuff.. or the school paper.
Hello EIC, that's me :)
[Editor-in-Chief].... :) Hahaha

I went in to school for a half-day last Friday :P I was so exhausted from practice & I had the worst migraine.. Ewy!

*Sigh* Just thinking about everything that's going on gets me so stressed out!
You wanna hear the most adorable thing ever!?
So, my most fave sophomore ever had to bake cookies for her german class and she set aside a couple for me & wrapped them in foil & wrote on top: "Gina: Deep breaths and everything will be okay." :)
Seriously. My day was so crazy and I just felt so stressed & I looked down and noticed there was something written on the thing she just handed me when we happened to see each other in the hall. I got a little teary & really thought that everything WOULD ACTUALLY be okay :)

Isn't this sooo nice & thoughtful?!

Seriously, it made me realize how little gestures can really affect someone's life...

I'm so tired... I had to get up at 9:30AM... & I still have to write a 2-2.5 page paper for tomorrow... Ew.
So, I'm leaving you all with this nice little update on my life.
It'll hopefully hold you all over for a while, cause I have NO idea when I'll be writing again... Haha

Workin' 9 to 5...

So it's 10:20 am right now...
and I've been here at the school since a little bit before nine.

We're just working on a bunch 'a stuff.
I'm gonna be here until 5:00 PM...

We do get an hour break for lunch though...
So don't think they're starving us or something like that.

This show will hopefully be pretty good...
We've just got a lot to learn in twelve days (Which is when the show opens)
So, perhaps it'll come together throughout this next week when we have rehearsal from 6PM to 10PM.. Woo!... :/

I've been sitting here forever & I'm not really doing much...
But my throat hurts really bad :/ So, I don't really want to spend eight hours singing.

Don't worry though, I brought my Snuggie with me! :) :) :) :)


If any of you are planning on being bored any day from November 18th to the 21st, you should definitely consider coming to see the Wizard of Oz :) It's gonna be good... Well, especially our set. I don't even want to admit how much money we spent on it.

It's gonna be swell... once things actually start coming together.

I'm so tired...
I'm celebrating my birthday with my dad's side of the family tonight :)
That'll be nice :)
I get to see my K-Grand <3 She's home from OSU! :D

& Then after that, I'm hanging out my friends :)
Not like we don't do that every weekend though :)

You have no idea how much I love senior year!
I probably get one thing for homework a week... MAYBE!
It's pretty fabb :)
I also love that I got almost all of my academic classes out of the way early on so I can take it easy this year :)

This blogging session is basically a rant... after Musical Theater is over, I'll be much more happier and cheerful... I promise :) Hahaha

My terrible mood right is on roll-over from yesterday & the day before... Hopefully things will be better soon :/ *sigh*

We're learning more songs right now...
So, I mean I suppose that's good...
But I don't wanna...
and I just got back from doing a song again... the one we know very well.

Oh, well...
This day can't get too much worse.
I'm out of complain-y things to say :P Haha
