Here we are, on the couch. Staying up until all hours of the night to watch a musical, write a post, knit a scarf, eat ice cream, etc.
I’m done with the first semester of my senior year. I dyed my hair blue (and then black). I’m directing two shows at once. I got through Urinetown alive. I DYED MY HAIR BLUE. I hung out with Ana Gasteyer, Dane Laffrey, and Michael Arden. I sang for Victoria Clark! I made latkes with my fellow Jews. I went to Holiday Dinner and didn’t look half bad. I pulled the WORST all-nighter in order to get a bunch of work done for David Montee. I GOT INTO COLLEGE!! Exciting stuff.
On the personal side, things have been a rollercoaster. I’ve had a lot of ups, but a lot of very serious downs. I’ve practiced forgiveness, but I’ve also practiced stubbornness. I’ve tried to be happier about the way I look, the person I am. I’ve tried to overcome demons.
I’m going to New York for the second time this year next week, with my friends Mark and Julia, all by ourselves. I don’t believe that we are actually going to do this. We just bought our tickets to see Fiddler on the Roof.
I watched Merrily We Roll Along. I am listening to “We Kiss in a Shadow” from The King and I. I’m up far too late.
I think I’m going to be alright after all. After all, I’m still just me. Me, me, me. No one can take that away.
