I've Been Distant

Journal Entry: Fri May 8, 2015, 3:16 PM




I'd apologize, but I don't even think anyone is reading this, haha.

I've been taking a lot of trips to New York, both with my family and by myself. Since January, I've been to New York 5 times - 3 times by myself, 2 times with my parents. I'll be going back within the next two weeks with my dad to see Hedwig again. I'll be going back to see It Shoulda Been You at some point, then back again to go see A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder again in June. I'm hoping to attend Broadway Barks in July and see a show that day. Then I'll be seeing Les Mis twice in August - for my 21st birthday and (hopefully) again for Ramin Karimloo's last show two weeks later.

By the way - I got to meet Ramin Karimloo this past Sunday. It was fantastic. My 5th time seeing the show on Broadway, yet it was just my first time meeting Ramin. It was spectacular.

Other than that, there really isn't much going on.

I'm sure I'll post another journal again in... what, 3, 4 months?

Edit: Here I am with Ramin.

Alone

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 3:50 PM




That's what I'll be on Saturday. Alone in New York City.

I'm taking the train in o spend the day in the city. My dad has to work, and my mom has no interest in coming with me, so it's just going to be me. I've decided to see Les Miserables twice that day. My tastes have really changed over the years. I used to outwardly scoff at musicals while privately coveting the classics - The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I used to only be about rock.

Then Les Miserables came into my life, and everything changed. I'm obsessed. 100% obsessed.

This is something I've thought about doing for awhile. Not the going to shows aspect, but just spending a day alone in the city, hanging out. The musical aspect came into play after I last saw Les Miserables in August. I never thought I'd see it twice in the same day, but we have Grandma and her Christmas money to thank for that.

I'm so excited, but I'm also terrified. I have no sense of direction whatsoever (except in Marco Island; I know where everything is in Marco Island, and I'm only there for 1-2 weeks a year), you see, so this could end up very badly. My phone does not have reliable GPS, as it dies very quickly if I even open the little app. My iPod only would work if I was constantly connected to WiFi. So I'm just hoping not to get totally lost.

Here's hoping it all works out.

OH! I'm also reading the unabridged version of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It's over 1,400 pages long, and I'm about halfway done. The goal is to finish it on Friday. Again, wish me luck, because it's not an easy book to get through.

Radio Silence

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 27, 2014, 12:08 PM


Lots to update on since I haven't posted a journal since sometime in November.

I finished my NaNoWriMo novel with 197k words. Not the 200,000 I was hoping for, but whatever. It's so much more than my original goal of 100,000! I've already started work on the plot for the sequel because I'm so excited about all the ideas I have for it.

Florida was absolutely fantastic. I didn't have a single horrible day there. Not once did I cry because Pop wasn't there, which was astounding because I thought I was going to be a mess. It was such a great two weeks. It sucked a bit when my aunt, my cousin, and my cousin's fiance left the first week because I had so much fun with them. All the inside jokes I made with them made no sense to my parents, who came down the second week, and I had no one else to play Uno and ruin friendships with. But I still had a good time with my parents. Dad and I went to see Mockingjay at the movie theater down there. It's a fantastic place to see a movie because they have a full menu in addition to the usual popcorn and candy you find at a theater. So we got to do dinner and a movie all in the same spot!

Christmas was good. I got pretty drunk on Christmas Eve, which made for a fantastic time for myself and my family. More alcohol on Christmas day, but it was spaced over so many hours that I didn't get nearly as drunk as I should have. At my grandmother's house, she tried to shove nine people at a table that's essentially made to sit six at the most comfortably. So Chris, Laura, and I took a table into the Christmas room (what we call the front room because the Christmas tree and snoring Santa have been out for the past five years) and ate in there. Then we played Uno and ruined our relationship even more.

Tonight, I'm going to see Patent Pending with Andrew, which is always a good time. I'll also be spending New Year's Eve with his family since my mother decided she didn't want to do anything this year. Another night to get pretty drunk, which will be great.

So how's everyone else doing?

Yep. Hit 100,000 words just now. I'm currently at 101,771, actually.

But I still have half an outline left to go, so clearly I'm going to be working on this thing until perhaps 200,000 words.

Sorry. Won't be able to enter.

I'm not sure what "facing" the first place winner means.
