It's been a long while since I last updated this. Lots has happened; some things I might go into, others I'll keep to myself because a public blog isn't the place for it.
Not too long before the 4th, I was convinced to be a part of the city's musical, Brigadoon. I'm a dancer in it, plus random filler and whatnot throughout it. So far, it's been really fun -- it distracts me from other matters after a long day, and I welcome anything that will raise my spirits these days. We're set to perform (and hopefully perform well) August 15, 16, & 18 at 7:00, with a 2:00 performance on the 16th. Four shows total. Four new experiences for me. Yes, this happens to be the first thing I've done involving singing, dancing, and theater all rolled into one.
Brigadoon won't be my last, though. As in my earlier blogs, I'll be in Macbeth too. Word is finally going around that practice will start in the first week of August. I seriously can't wait. This summer has dragged on too long. Too much drama, too many bored days, and too much brain-deterioration. I gotta do something "intelligent" before I snap! I haven't had a talk with smart people about smart stuff in too long a time. So someone, anyone: talk to me. Tell me about that cool new gadget you found surfing around online one day, or about how you think a plant perceives time. Sure, being fun and crazy at a party is fun, but after two months of that, you'd get bored. Nearly anyone would. So please, let's talk and have a different kind of fun for a change...
..Well, the 4th was awesome, as always. The fireworks were great. It always gets me when I think that a bunch of flammable chemicals packed into a 3- to 7-inch ball can be shot into the air to explode above our heads with a massive concussive blast, just for pure enjoyment.
But, that feeling lasted for just that one day. The week leading up to it, and the few days after the 4th, felt like the longest in my life. Mark down one thing I won't say more about here, for the sake of many people.
So anyway, I've been sitting here doing other things while wondering what to say here, and can't think of anything. I'll try to remember other things and post em.
