I Found a Blog!!

You know what I just realized? I have a blog. You know, that I write on. Maybe I should write things on it... But in all seriousness, I have a very good reason that I haven't written anything on here since November. You guessed it, my dog ate my computer. Okay, that was the worst dad joke ever. It was really awful. Hey, at least I found something I'm good at...

Actually, these last few months have been the busiest and greatest I've ever had. I've traveled all over the country, performed in my first and last high school musical (it was not High School Musical. Sorry to disappoint.), and have done general senior-y things.

Along the way, I really kind of learned about how much I missed out on during my freshman and sophomore years. I've also taken a lot of pictures. I'm thinking about opening up a little gallery so the world can witness me in a maid outfit. Yeah, you read that right.

I'm really grateful that (even though I did nothing my first two years of high school) I did everything I possibly could these past two years. I'm so glad I took every opportunity because I've learned so much about myself. For example, I probably should never wear a maid outfit again. I've also made the most amazing friends along the way. Friends I wish I had all four years because they're honestly some of the most incredible people I've ever met. So thank y'all for these last few months especially. They've been awesome.  It's cheesy, but then again, so is pizza. And pizza is delicious.

Okay, now I don't know where I'm going with this...at all. Anyway, I think I'll be writing a lot more lately. I really miss it. Now that I found it again, I really have no excuse not to use that blog. And, like that weird chick from Mean Girls, I just have a lot of feelings. And I want to meet Tina Fey. So yeah, I'm going to write some more soon. Stay tuned!

On School

School started a week and a half ago. This year, I'm faced with the typical new things, like classes, work load, schedule, and teachers, but I have also (re)joined the choir and the speech team, and we have a new volleyball coach. While I am excited about all of this new stuff, I can't help feeling like a scared little freshman, not knowing what to do at all and diving into whatever I can while screaming bloody murder. The start of school makes everyone feel really scared, agitated, depressed, or all of the above, I think, and I am most certainly no exception. I have been very mopey and angry and screamy and cry-y lately, and I have definitely been taking refuge in God, music, coffee, and exercise now more than anything. While I sit here, once again stressed and not helping myself by procrastinating and writing a blog post, I just wonder if I'm the only one who feels this way about a little thing like school. I'm sure I'm not, because there are billions of people ou

Cameron Crowe Ruined My Life

Believe me when I say that it pained me to type out the title to this post. Cameron Crowe is one of my very favorite filmmakers. To me, a guy who can write teenagers who are real people, really capture the full spectrum of human emotion, and incorporate a great soundtrack into his work is a real genius. Though it initially made me feel warm, fuzzy, and hopeful, a recent late night viewing of 2005's Elizabethtown  ended up making me a little nervous. I realized that Crowe was just like everybody else. Now, this probably doesn't make sense to those of you who admire his work. As a writer and filmmaker, Crowe definitely has a unique voice and vision that helps his work connect with all kinds of audiences. That's precisely the problem. Last week I wrote a post about how movies are only a reflection of life and not actually true to life itself. In the post, I mentioned that filmmakers are just one person with one perspective, and that is absolutely true of Crowe. In Crow

Be Smart

It still shocks me when people tell me they no longer go to the movies, but even I was surprised that I went to see a movie twice in one week. Yes, I am no stranger to a repeat trip to the theatre, but  Booksmart  hit me hard. I very rarely see a new release that rockets to the top of my list of all time favorites. In fact, I don't think it's happened since I saw Whip It  10 years ago. If you haven't yet heard about Booksmart, it's an original, funny, empathetic take on an old classic. Two best friends want to go to a party after four years of a solely academic high school career. What it does differently from movies like Superbad (which I also love, by the way) should and will change the genre forever. The two leads ( Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein ) not only land every joke and win you over immediately, but they also communicate the weird and wonderful world of female friendship through their performances in a way I've rarely seen. They don't compete,
