So… That’s Surgery, Doc

Wow, has it really been almost seven months since I last published? Blog fail! 😉 I figured I should get this post, at least, out the door before 2011. It was mostly written in September, so there might be some things that are no longer true. The vast majority of the text, though, is not publish-date-sensitive. Hopefully more to come, filling in my summer at the very least. I now know what it’s like to go through surgery. Thanks to my former appendix for the lesson. My family planned a vacation to coincide with my brother’s college graduation in August.…

A Summery Summary: Cherubs

I started writing this on August 22, 2008. I should have started about twenty days earlier and finished at least by the end of the year, but I’m really not good with publishing on time, am I? Oh well. unfortunately. This one’s for you, Margaret. 🙂 I’ve preserved as much of what I initially wrote as possible. Inevitably, there are gaps; I can’t do much about that, but hopefully the incompleteness will motivate me to be better at getting these things done in the future. A lot can happen in five weeks… And I mean a lot! Let’s see, what…

Summer 2009: Theatre, Theatre, Theatre

This post took a long time because 1) I was moving the site, 2) I was doing lots of college applications all at the same time, and 3) I spent too long waiting for media from other people that never came. Once I bought my domain and started setting up WordPress in late October, I didn’t really want to publish any new posts at the old site. I didn’t want to publish anything at the new site either until everything was set up properly, and I only in mid-February because I wasn’t through with college apps until mid-January. So sue…

Summer Not Quite as Booked…

I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately. I’ve been distracted (so what else is new?) by homework, SimCity 4 (which I actually succeed at now), and (the largest offender) being sick. Writing has definitely taken a back seat, but I have some things I definitely want to blog about when I find the time. This one is just the most breaking. Sometimes things are too good to be true. Remember when to the Musical Theatre Extension at Northwestern? Turns out that was a mistake. Let me explain. (I’m still in the theatre program; just not the Extension.) In…

My Summer is Officially Booked

Well, it’s official. I have something to do for this summer. As I said in a recent canned post (the one ), I applied to two summer programs this year. Both of them have admitted me, and I’m going to accept the invitation to attend the theatre arts program at Northwestern University‘s National High School Institute. It’s funny, because I didn’t technically complete the application requirements for the program I wanted to do (the Musical Theatre extension). They let me in anyway. Which means I have a seven-week commitment this summer. Update (05/07): The letter was mistaken; . From the…
