Motivation to take action

 I had a gig yesterday night at my mom's friend's cafe. The crowd was really nice, and the energy I got from performing made me want to do it more! I don't have a band behind me, which would be nice. Ya know, have a more full sound and what not. I've got some stuff in the works though :)
 I need to get more motivated. I've had such a drive about me for the past 3 days, and now it's wearing off :( Kinda like coming off a sugar high.

I didn't get the whole "double date" memo.

 Last night I went and saw the roomate. My friend, Lindsey, and I were like the third wheel out. I don't know if that was our other friends intention..... But Linds and I ended up being sandwiched between two couples. Yay for them being romantic in the movie theatre!......
     Anyways, the movie was good. I was expecting it to have more scary parts, it was mostly story and then the very end was the climatic part. And the climatic part didn't last that long. I also didn't like the love interest. He squinted too much...
 whoops... forgot to take off my keys...
Adam didn't go to the movies with us because he was back at his house entertaining guests from his Eagle scout ceremony. It was a nice ceremony. There was a slide show at the beginning showing his "trail to the Eagle" and it was cute. It kinda grounded me to see what his life was like before me, haha.
 The Goodwill ball is tomorrow and I am sooo excited! I'm for sure taking pictures of the outfits!
 I really liked the detail on this vest.

The third day of Hell week was animal day. I told my inductee to dress up like an elephent. I was envisioning her stuffing her shirt and making a trunk, and she came to school like this.... At least she was showing an effort, right?

Date night

 Last night was a wonderful night. Why? Well, because my wonderful boyfriend treated me to a date night. We went to dinner at a place called Pico Rojo, and afterwards we saw some senior theatre projects at a high school known for it's theatre. It's not that often that we get to go out on dates, being in high school and all, so it's nice to be treated by him.
     The senior projects were enjoyable. The kids at that school are so talented, it's really inspiring. It makes me want to become more involved in theatre. 
     I tend to want to be good at many things, I've been realizing. It tends to get frustrating. For instance, I want to be a recording artist, but also a great choral singer. Then I want to be a great actor and musical theatre performer. I also have a longing to be a dancer, but then I'm also in a pipe band. I need to focus in on what I want to do, make a decision. Lately, I've been yearning to become a recording artist the most. There's just so much potential in me, I just need to figure out where to apply it.
 Tonight, my plans are to go to Adam's Eagle Scout ceremony. I'm excited about it, not gonna lie. It's supposed to be a big honor and such, and I'm proud of him.

How they Sing about love

 This outfit is from Tuesday last week. I really like this top. It's from Frederick's of Hollywood though.... Which is a lingerie store... :)
 There's not much going on in my life right now. I didn't have any homework tonight, which is a rare occurrence. I really want to get started on some sewing projects, the pile of things I want to hem or take in is increasing while my motivation is dwindling...
I got inducted into the Spanish Honor Society tonight. Pretty cool stuff. I came in right as the ceremony was starting because I was in a time crunch. I had a college class today that ended at 6:45, and the ceremony started at 7. Buttttt, it was all cool. Apparently Senora said that "she looks cute even when she's late". Haha

 I went shopping for the goodwill ball yesterday, and I got some superb stuff, I gotta tell ya! MC Hammer-esque pants and a Striped cropped blazer ( I was told it looked like something Beetlejuice would wear) For those of you that don't know what the Goodwill ball is, it's basically an event put on by a club I'm in, where everyone goes to a thrift store and buys an ugly outfit
 This is what I wore last year :)

Moving right along, Tuesday of last week was mime day for the thespian inductees.
 Here's my boyfriend with his inductee
 My inductee had to dress up like a member of the blue man group and do a performance at the end of the day with all the other inductees dressed up like blue men group members. She made me proud :)

As you all know, Monday was Valentine's day. It was also mine and Adam's 10 month. Monday was also the day I was reminded of how romantic my boyfriend could be. Story timeee

Alright, Monday, we had off of school. Yay for me, right? I'll spend all of Valentine's day with him! Well, not so much. Adam had a rehearsal for a senior project he's in scheduled that day from 9 to 2 at a school like, 45 minutes away. Well, I wasn't that bummed about it actually, because that meant I got to sleep in later, and be well rested when I got to hang out with Adam later in the day.
     So, I had the mindset that I wouldn't be hanging out with him until later, no big deal. He had other plans for that though. At 7:30, I'm woken up by my boyfriend, flowers in one hand, a teddy bear in the other, and a giant smile on his face. I love his romantic side :) Definitely the best Valentine's day ever:)

The air

 Sooo, Valentine's day. This is the first Valentines day that I have someone to celebrate it with. It's been pretty awesome so far, I must say, considering I was woken up by A. In my room. With a dozen roses and a little bear. I was in my pajamas and had disheveled hair, but he didn't care. It's also our 10 month today. He's a pretty awesome kid, I must say.
I wore this last Monday, during Hell Week. On this day, the inductees were assigned to dress like their inductor. This was my inductee's attempt at dressing like me. Points for trying....
 I was hoping she'd at least wear a high waist skirt or something! Tights, a vest, a scarf! But it is what it is.
 Hopefully, I'll be going out on a date later tonight with A. :)

It's all for the stage

 I'm busy busy lately. I finished my comp I paper, and I'm turning it in today. I have to catch myself up on two lessons of math before Thursday so I can take my test and be able to pass it. I need to fill out forms for induction into the Spanish Honor Society to be turned in by tomorrow. I need to get my Thespian induction stuff in order, andddd I need to clean.
 So, my school system is a tad bit stupid. At the beginning of second semester, I was put in English 3 honors, which I requested not to be put in, because I'm enrolled in Comp I at my community college. That class satisfies my english credit, so I don't need to be taking an extra english class at the high school. They put me in one anyways.... And took away my Pre-Calc class, which I need to fulfill having a math credit, so I can graduate and move on with my life blahblahblah. So, I sent in a schedule change form, and waited for my new schedule. And waited. Last week on Friday, one of my friends came up to me and told me that my math teacher had been marking me absent. And I was like "that's weird, because I never got a schedule telling me that I had that class". Turns out I got switched into the class and I never got sent a new schedule. Stupid.
 I have to have all my thespian induction things put together by Thursday to give to my inductee by Friday. I decided that I'm making her be Peter Pan for character day. I bought her stuff to make a hat for me. We also make them do challenges, and one of the ones she'll have to do is make a scarf for me. I bought a white square of fabric, some pearl like beads, some black beads, and some.... cool beads. I hope she's creative! I still need to figure out an animal to make her be for animal day. Any ideas?
 Today I also signed up to be a belly-like dancer in my school musical. I didn't get a lead, so I'm trying to get as many little parts as i can! Haha.
