How do you decide between walking away/letting things happen and fighting for what you really want?






...I'm having a hard time drawing to a conclusion.

Spring Awakening is closing.

http://www.broadway.com/Spring-Awakening-Sets-Broadway-Closing-Date/broadway_news/5013750

Honestly, totally saw it coming. With the string of shows that have closed in the last couple months and SA doing horribly in the last..5 months? It would only be a matter of time til they officially announced it.

On that note, although I haven't even paid any attention to what's going on with the show nor have I really cared or listened to it since about May; I'm still saddened by the news.

Spring Awakening has meant a lot to me over the last year and a half and will continue to be. I can't even begin to tell you what this show has done for me. The story has brought me to tears, made me laugh myself to death, and reminded me how much hope can be possible despite the grimmest tragedy. The music itself has been incredibly theraputic for me. Literally, just yesterday after a horrible few hours, I went on drive to run errands and just blasted "Bitch of Living" in the car and sang to the top of my lungs. When I came back to my apartment, I felt immensely better.

Besides, the artistic aspect of the show, I will never ever forget the original cast of this show. It was my first time ever seeing an original cast of a broadway show and I instantly connected with every single one of those people. As actors, I respected their incredible talent and was in complete disbelief that people my age (and younger) could be so talented. As human beings, the cast still remains some of the nicest people I have ever met. From the cast, I did discover the amazing John Gallagher, Jr. Him by himself has meant the world to me, especially in his music. He introduced me into the universe of Old Springs Pike, who are now The Spring Standards. And those three people, in terms of music, have meant so much to me.

So, I just wanted to thank Spring Awakening for helping me find me. This and RENT are without a doubt the two musicals that have changed my life.

This song is absolutely beautiful:

"Picture This"- The Spring Standards
Picture this
Many years from now
Me and you and you and me
And the two little children
They wake up and they help you with breakfast
I wake up to the smell of your perfume
It brightens up the morning
And I say

Picture this
[Picture this]
You and me and me and you
Living together happily
Never a dull moment
And I say
Picture this
You and me and me and you
Living together happily
Never a dull moment
Picture this

I lean over and I give you a kiss
You smile
The kids pile on top of us
We wrestle and they're laughing
I'm tired but I still play with them
And I say

Picture this
[Picture this]
Me and you and you and me
Living together happily
Never a dull moment
And I say
Picture this
[Picture this]
You and me and me and you
Living together happily
Never a dull moment
Picture this

We get old together
Live our lives in full
Me and you
You and me
Living till we're old and yet somehow young

In my heart you seem so bright
and in my heart you seem so beautiful
And in my heart I'll always love you
But sometimes I still think
Picture this
Picture this
Picture this
Picture this

I thought it was time for one these.

So I'm about 6 weeks into my first semester here at Washington State University and I can safely say that they have been without a doubt the best 6 weeks of my whole college experience. For once, I actually feel like I'm a college student. Although there are some aspects I do miss about Western, those mainly being Jennie, Malia, and Marcy; I'm quite content here at WSU..more than I ever thought I would.

My classes are challenging but not too overwhelming at this point, I'm able to manage my time well enough that I can finish all my work and still have to play.

I'm a school where there's legit football team, and school spirit actually exists...maybe too much at some points haha. Oh and even though I am a Cougar and I apparently "bleed Crimson," don't worry I'm not going to get into that whole rivalry thing. Yeah, of course, I'll always root for my school but I'm not going to turn my nose up every time I see the color purple. Even if I did do that, I have a fantastic reason..those bitches rejected me in the first place. :)

I went from a life in Silverdale and also in Bellingham, pretty my whole life in general, where I was seriously lacking some testosterone presence, even simply in the friend department. Cut to here, my circle of friends is nothing but incredible, amazing guys. As much as I miss girl talk sometimes, I will have to say hanging out with guys 24/7 gives me great insight into their psyche and also, it just makes things so much more simple. I'm quickly learning that there are just good guys out there and that's that. They're all so sweet, genuine, and respectful. I didn't think it was possible to be in Pullman and not only have while being sober but have people so supportive of your decisions. Plus, it completes my all of the above that I can turn to Jamie and have huge discussions about film and then go over to Jared and have deep talks about fucking awesome The Beatles are. And the fact that I can walk down the street and see one of my best friends anytime I want to is perfect.

And I would also just wanted to acknowledge something about James freaking Ryan. That boy is seriously my soulmate and I don't know how I lived without him all these years.

With all that being said, I'm somewhat content with my life..although I should probably try and a little bit harder in school haha. Even though I'm enjoying my time here, I can't wait to go home next weekend. This is the longest I have gone without being home and I've actually been able to tolerate it. It'll just be nice to getaway for awhile. I mean, even paradise gets old.

I love even when he messes up, his lyrics are a thousand times better than any of the crap that the Jonas Brothers to pass off as music. And this is just a great song. But seriously, when he messes up is pure brilliance haha.

Anyone want to lend me about $1000 so I can go to New York in November? PLEASE LET THIS TRANSFER TO BROADWAY WITH THE SAME CAST DURING A PERIOD WHEN I'M ACTUALLY IN NEW YORK. PLEASE.


I apologize for all the caps but seriously. Seriously.

My beautiful and extremely talented Tracie Thoms is going to be the final Joanne! Goddamn, it makes me even SADDER that I can't see RENT one last time. I love that woman, she was my favorite part in the RENT movie and she is just freaking incredible in Death Proof. FOUR FOR YOU TRACIE THOMS!
