"Why are you still in the bed!"

So I just finished reading Othello, and I love this play. It is so intense, but I can't help thinking of this video. Enjoy!

The Lords of Agamoth Concert

My friends Shredstin and Jeff have an awesome band, and they had a concert at Kiwanis Park in Provo, UT on June 4, 2010. Here are some videos of the performance.


This is their Voldemort song:



And 'Outer Space':





and 'Girls Don't Appreciate World of War Craft'







They are great. At then end they dubbed me an official Lady of Agamoth (along with other Lords and Ladies), and let me tell you, it was a supreme honor.

Charles Dickens?


So I was just getting started reading the next Shakespeare play on my list "All's Well That Ends Well", and the cover looked normal but then on the title page I saw this:
Charles Dickens? Really? I am going to treasure this book forever!

thus far without mirrors...

I have learned that the more you try to avoid something, the more you notice it. There are reflective surfaces everywhere! It was super hard up until yesterday, but now it's starting to get easier.

I've also realized, that the less I look in the mirror, the less I care about my appearance. By Saturday, I'm going to look like a wild woman!


Plus, I keep braiding my hair because I know I can do it without looking in the mirror, so my hair is crimpy and puffy like Hermione, but not as cute as this picture.



Yes. I am going to look like another person by the end of this week. Should be fun!

I also realized, that I rely on the mirror to make sure my outfits are normal. I usually push the edge of normaility anyway, but the mirror keeps me from going completely off the wall. I love colors and patterns in my clothes, and the mirror keeps me from having TOO MUCH color and pattern. Today, my outfit is a hodge podge of missmatched patterns and colors. yup. Sorry to anyone who has to put up with my appearance for the next few days, cause I dont' have to look at it!

Week without mirrors...Here we go!



So, I started my week without mirrors today!
Saturday was one of those days that the mirror was just not my friend so I felt totally ready for this challenge. Then I woke up 10 min. before I had to be to church, and the temptation was strong. I just had to tell myself. You don't need to look at yourself just to see how tired you look. You'll still look just as tired.

Another challenge: there are so many reflective surfaces EVERYWHERE! the window of my car as I'm getting in, my computer screen as it's starting up. It takes A LOT of will power to be consistent at not looking at my reflection.

I didn't realize, just how much I look at my reflection subconsciously all the time. It's like an it's I can't scratch. This will certainly prove to be a grand adventure!

Happiness is.............

Ice Cream!





The head of my office just came around with a little radio flyer wagon with ice cream and cones and passed out ice cream to all of the student employees! Seriously, the sun is shining and we get free ice cream? Now everyone is walking around with ice cream cones, juggling eating between taking phone calls, and it is delightful! Who'd have thought something so simple as free ice cream could change your mood?

My first oil painting! 


The Plateaus of Love


After 2 1/2 months of serious flirtation, William Shakespeare finally got up the courage to hold my hand. Needless to say, I was thrilled.

Beware.....

The Ides of March are upon us! And in honor of 'Julius Ceasar' here is my favorite scene from the movie 'Mean Girls'. Enjoy!

dancing through life...

Today I did something hard. Here is the video to prove it. Whoever says a dance major is a cop out doesn't get it. This was my Composition class midterm- and it was difficult for me. Mostly because I am a VERY abstract choreographer- and emotion is hard for me to portray- and that is what I was assigned to do! This piece is based off of the poem 'The Harbor' by Carl Sandburg. I hope you enjoy- if not, we can still be friends.



And here is Heather Gemperline's solo- so beautiful!
