Well, I haven't written in ages. Let's see, since them I have succesfully compeleted MADAMA BUTTERFLY and HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING (which is rumored to be the best musical that Silverdale has put on, but that's not saying too much!). I am now at governors school. So, if anyone wants to e-mail me, just send a message to ralphie24601@hotmail.com.

Well, all I can really say is that I have been extremely busy and too tired to update. Sorry guys. Still in the Opera (Madame Butterfly), and that opens next week. Still doing HOW TO SUCCEED at school. That's going okay if we actually had more than 4 people who were freakin committed. Well, that's really about all the important stuff. I'll be updating alot during the summer when I'm at governors school. Well, good night.

Been busy/tired

mood: I should be tired
After I had finished teaching Elementary Drama, Christina and I decided to go out to get some ice cream (I actually got a chicken sandwich, but who cares). Anyways, I had a message on my phone asking me if I could be a replacement in next months opera with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera. The opera is Madame Butterfly, and I am now officially a chorus member. The chorus has a small part, but I thing it will still be fun...and also look nice on a resume.

HOW TO SUCCEED is going along steadily. Ummm... that's about it.

Well, nothing of any interest to anybody has happened in a while. Let's see... HOW TO SUCCEED is going pretty well, except one cast member (who shall remain annonomous) is drivng me insane! Went to Christina's church, and I like it.

So, here is my summer:
Governor's School- June 12 to July 9
Musical Theatre Camp (Illinois)- July 17 to either the 22 or 24
Hondurous- August 5 to 12

I will never be home! Well, I'm getting up early tomorrow to pick up Christina and Kelly and eat buscuits...I guess. The end.

P.S.-Does Su dislike me? I need to ask her.

mood: Once again...I'm tired!
Well, I got into Governor's School for the Arts. I was excited about that. Rhearsal for HOW TO SUCCEED seems to be going well. WE just need to get started on the costumes and sets. I guess that's about it. My life is pretty boring right now. I haven't been updating lately b/c I get so tired at night. I mean, I like passout everynight. Actually, that sounds pretty good right about now!

I haven't felt like updating lately   
10:11pm 28/02/2005
mood: not too happy.
Good things that have happened lately:
-1 of 4 to win a vocal competition
-Started rehearsals for HOW TO SUCCEED today

Bad things:
-failing chemistry and algebra
-not caring about failing chemistry and algebra
-parents constantly on my back about failing chemistry and algebra
-so many freakin' projects due and being way overloaded
-they gave away one of my dogs (Peeve) tonight. they tried to rationalize it by saying it wasn't technically my dog. I'm not really too happy with my family right now.
-chemistry test in the morning that I have to pass (but I probably won't)
-haven't caught up on my sleep in like a month.

So, basically, it sucks right now.

Well, life has been amazingly amazing lately...not really, but that's okay. Umm...I don't remember much of what's been going on since I last updated. I had like 8 zero's in homework. I got a water plant for my room (super cool, and don't copy me!). Oh, and they are giving away my dog Peeve to this lady who lives down the street from us. I was not happy. Not at all. I was so proud of myself b/c I was going to say some things that were uplifting at all, but I held my tongue. I'm going to see the Fantasticks tonight with Alanna and Cody. Ummmm....the end

Oh, chicken fingers....   
10:07pm 21/02/2005
mood: Woo-hoo
Well, I didn't update yesterday b/c I was tired. Nothing much happened yesterday. Went to church, slept, went to my grandmother's, went home, Mom wouldn't let me got to the St. Luke's youth group meeting, went to my church, sermon was pointless and played volleyball afterwards. That was it.

Today, we were off from school b/c of President's day. I met Gran, my mom, Patience, all my aunts, Scotty, Brian and my three little cousins at Northshore Grill to cellebrate Gran's birthday. It would like rain 20 minutes, and then it would be blue skies and sunny, and then rain, and then be fine... Anyways, my Aunt LeAnn and Aunt Pamela ordered fish. They said it was cold and aweful. So, they sent it back. Then, Cami and Ellie got their chicken fingers last. After both of them eating one, we discover that the ones they had left were completely raw on the inside. It was so gross. We're not sure if the ones they had eaten were like that, but it would be really gross if they were. After that I came home for a while. Then, I went to work an hour early. It was fun. I worked with Hayley and Lindsay. The night went by pretty fast. I guess that's about it.

We have some group coming to our school tomorrow, so we don't have class all day! I'm watching some movies tonight since I don't have to think tomorrow.

mood: Hairspray!
Yeah, so I've been Captain Slacker and haven't written in a couple of days. I honestly don't feel like writing that much this time...but that's okay. Nothing has really happened in the past few days worth mentioning. Actually, work was so much fun last night. Shannon and Jenna were acting insane, and all of us were dancing. The American Eagle girl enjoyed watching us. Oh, and last night, since Brandon wasn't home, Patience and I watched Halloween:Resurection last night. It lasted until 1:30 am. It was pretty stupid (can't compare to the first one), but it was still fun to watch.

Today, my mom, dad and I picked up Christina and Michael and we headed to Atlanta. Gran came with us too. We shopped in two outlet places on the way there. Christina introduced me to Rue 21. That is the greatest store. I got me 2 pairs of pants for a grand total of $10.50! I was so excited. I also got a sweater and some good costumes. Well, we met Tori at the Fox Theatre and watched Hairspray. IT WAS AMAZING! I mean, the girl that played Tracy was so freakin' incredible! Oh, and the mom was hilarious. I didn't care for Link's voice too much, but he was great still. I just loved all of it! Afterwards, Tori's mom was a little confused about when or where she was picking up Tori, so we just headed to Plato's Closet for a while. That was fun. My mom kept worrying and I thought it sounded like she was bickering. I know she didn't mean to, and I hope the others don't think she was (but I think they do). That's just the way she came off. After that, we headed home. Michael, Christina and I all fell asleep for a long while. All in all, it was a really fun trip! I don't know if I would want to audition for Hairspray anymore because of all the dancing, but it was great to watch.

This is going to be short because I'm really tired.

-Went to school. They had chapel talks today, but Ryan's was great! It was so pure. Also, Janeen wasn't in drama today, so I got to take over. It was fun...just like old times. That's about all that happened at school.

-Took Hannah and Elyse to David's Bridal for Hannah to fill out some papers for her knew job. Afterwards, we ate at Sonic while listening to Westside Story. I now know why there is the law of having only 1 person in the car with you at a time. I drive fine with just Elyse, but with Hannah and Elyse, I...well, don't.

-Ate at Las Margaritas. It was good and worth mentioning for some reason.

-Went to church. I fell asleep during the first part! I have never fallen asleep during youth. We talked about suicide when we seperated. That was interesting.

-Came home and watched Project Runway. It was really good tonight. I don't know who is going to win next week, but it looks really interesting!

I thought my teeth would be free...   
10:29pm 15/02/2005
mood: Darn retainers!
Well, I couldn't wait for it to be 9:00 this morning. When it turned 9:00, that would mean I had to start getting ready to go get my braces taken off. I kept waking up before 9:00, but I was too lazy to go ahead and get up. What was funny, though, I was late to the orthodontist! Well, at a few minutes after 10:00, my teeth began to undergo their torture! LITERAL TORTURE!!!! They couldn't take my braces off like normal braces. No, instead of twisting each individual brace off (like they do for the metal ones), they had to CRUSH mine because they were porcilain! Imagine, around 8 things that are a part of your teeth after being cemented to your teeth for 2 years being literally crushed to pieces by plyers. I had tears in my eyes. I have never felt so much pain. ANyways, they look pretty good. I didn't like go crazy and screaming. I was just relieved. But then I felt my permanant retainer on my bottom teeth and was handed my "removable" retainer for my top teeth. First of all, I wouldn't have chosen a permanant retainer. Braces were permanant for me! Oh, and I have to wear my other retainer 24/7. What's the point in getting your braces, b/c I was mistaken by having the idea that it meant that you would finally be relived of all the metal in your mouth. Oh no. It's just half removable and makes you talk like a deaf person and the other half feels like sand paper! Wow, I'm optomistic!

I went back to school. I was there right in time for lunch. After that was drama. I found out that another guy wants to play Finch, one of my dream roles. I don't know what to think about the situation. Tara is interested in being Rosemary. That would be fun. In English, we had a test. A "write 15 paragraphs based on the three vague questions I give you" kind of test. It took me around an hour and 15 minutes to complete. I also only finished 13 paragraphs, and one of those was dedicated to telling how awefull the book is. My paper was crap.

I locked my keys in my truck. My dad had to come unlock my doors.I was cancelled from working at Hamilton Place. I was kind of relieved. I went and rented Dodgeball again for Brandon. I rented The Gift because the movie clerk guy said it was good. It was actually really good...except Katie Holmes was a little revealing. It could have done without that. Well, that's about it. I'm going to go read the script to HOW TO SUCCEED now.

mood: NO MORE BRACES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did not want to wake up this morning. At all. But, I did. School was okay today. I some how finding myself in an all so familiar state every time I sit through an Alegebra II or Chemistry class. It is the state of knowing nothing and being overtaken by appathy. I hate school. We got the HOW TO SUCCEED... scripts in. That's exciting. We have a test in English tomorrow. I love how he told us today. If we questioned him, he'd probably fabricate some story on how he told us before we went to Washington. I have the hiccups.

After school, I taught Elementary Drama. They were kind of hyper today, but I think it's from all the candy. They're great kids. Afterwards, I went straight to work. Work went well. We did nothing. It was pretty slow. Talked to Megan/Bob for a while. Clara came in, too. It was so foggy after work that you could hardly see right infront of your car! It was crazy! At home, I watched a little of Josh Groban's tour on DVD (I saw it live, Boo-Yah!...I just squelched all coolness in me by uttering boo-yah!)

I GET MY BRACES OFF TOMORROW!!!! I'M SLEEPING IN AND THEN THEY'RE OFF FOR GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mood: Mmmm...more cough drops!
Well, I woke up at 10:30 (alarm) and decided to be at church at 11:00. After I had taken a shower, gotten ready, moved the van from behind my truck, picked out the cd I wanted to listen to, I was ready to go. I got there with 20 minutes left in the service. Alanna got her hair cut shorter. It looks really good. Afterwards, I ate at Chili's with the Weavers. That was very fun. After that, Karen, Alanna and I went to the Balloon Affair. One of Karen's good friends owns that place. Cindy is so nice. Alanna and I walked around Frasier for a long while. That was very fun. The rest of the time, we just hung out at the Balloon Affair, talking with everyone. They are all so funny. Alanna and I made Patience a Valentine candy/balloon thing. It was nice. Afterwards, I rented a couple of movies and now, I've just been home. Poor Snickers. She's so sad. I had to hand feed her tonight. I let Peeve in a few minutes ago. She is HUGE! I mean, she looks bigger than before I left for Washington!

(Leave a comment, ya dig?)

I was a little sleepy...   
11:30pm 12/02/2005
mood: Poor Snickers
So, I wake up, look at the clock and realize that it is 2:00 in the afternoon! I have never slept that late! I was very disappointed, but I really didn't have anything else to do today. I was by myself. Brandon and Patience had decided to go to Atlanta, and my Mom and Dad went out of town this morning. In think the reason for me sleeping so late was that medicine that I took last night. It has some weird side effects. Like, after I got out of the shower, the bathroom looked so much bigger. And I kept getting kind of dizzy. Other than that, I feel alot better. I don't know, it's weird. So, I just stayed around the house for a while. Later, I went to K-Mart to pick up some stuff. After that, I went to video park to pick up a couple of movies. Well, there was a $15 late fee on my parents' account, so I tried to open my own. They wouldn't let me because a)there can't be two accounts from the same address and b)I wasn't seventeen. The second one doesn't even make sense. You can rent a rated R movie when your 17!

Anyways, I went to Blockbuster to get a movie. I looked around for about 20 minutes. Brandon and Patience said they wanted to see Dodgeball, so that's what I picked out. I went up and applied for a Blockbuster membership. Well, I fill out the form and wait. I wait for OVER AN HOUR! Finally, this freak of a Blockbuster employee comes up to me and informs me that I have to be 18! After all that! Brandon and Patience both got cards when they were 17. I just want to know when Blockbuster became so exclusive? They rent out rated R stuff to like freakin' 12 year olds!

So, I go back to the other video store, rent Dodgeball and come back home. A few minutes later, Brandon realizes that Snickers' stitches from the surgery she had have come undone for the second time. Patience and I rushed her to the Emergency vet b/c tehy were the only ones open. 2 hours later, she is stitched and stapled, has such a big cone on her head that she can't lift her head hardly and she is on drugs that are supposed to mellow her out. My dog is high. Actually, she's really pitiful, and it makes me really sad! That poor dog. After we got home, we watched Dodgeball. That is the funniest movie! Well, I'm going to go.

Welcome Back...

mood: If I cough one more time...
Well, I have been in Washington DC for the past four days. It was extremely fun. I won't bore you with all the details, but here are a few:

1)Dick Cheyney drove by us
2)Went to the Holocaust Museum
3)Went to the Smithsonian Museums of Art, Natural Science & American History.
4)Saw the Constitution
5)Visited the following Memorials- Lincoln (my favorite), Roosevelt (my second favorite), Jefferson, WW II, Iwojima, Korean, Vietnam and I think I'm leaving out some
6)Found out that Hannah and I are amazing photographers.
7)Christina likes Oompa-Loompahs
9)Played hours of Madlibs
10)Got really sick Tuesday night with the viral thing that's going around (I think I might have given it to everyone else)
11)Toured the Capital with Zach Wamp. Half of the tour group got lost in the Capital and Mr. Wamp wasn't too happy about that.
12)Toured the White House (a lot smaller than it looks on television)
13)Went to Mt. Vernon.

Those were in no order whatsoever.

Like I said on #10, I got really sick on Tuesday. I felt like death on Wed. I felt somewhat better on Thursday. I actually felt pretty bad on the way home though. I still fell pretty bad. I went to the doctor today and he perscribed me this narcotic cough medicine. I just took it and I'm begining to feel it. I might pass out soon. Today's my dad's birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad! I'm bed ridden tomorrow under the edict of my mother. I had to miss the Valentine's Banquet with Alanna. I felt aweful about that. SORRY ALANNA! Well, that's about it!

Well, I passed out last night when I got home from Atlanta, so here's what happened:

-Met the Weavers at Silverdale and headed out.

-Arrived at The Fox.
-I looked at my program and found out that the ANTHONY RAPP was playing Seymoure!!!
-I freaked out.
-Called Su to tell her.
-Show was amazing. Anthony Rapp was so great, that words cannot describe him! Oh, and the Audrey was amazing too. They were both 100 times better than Hunter Foster and Kerry Butler!
-Met everyone in the cast except Orin (the dentist) and Mr. Mushnick.
-Got to talk to ANTHONY RAPP and got his auatograph!!! I also got to talk to Audrey. She's great. Oh, and the three girls were all really funny.
-Went to Lennox Plaza. It is humongous! Alanna and I went in all these designer stores (Betsy Johnson, Gucci, Etc...)And bought nothing. The best store was Urban Outfitters!
-Went home.
-It was one of the best days ever!

-My whole family is sick, so they made me go to church alone.
-Only fell asleep a little in church.
-Many errands.
-Went to my little cousin Joshua's birthday party.
-Came home and packed for Washington.
-Went to the Super Bowl/Mardi Gras party after running more errands.
-Party was great fun. Alanna won for best costume: The Mardi Gras Warrior! (Wig, Cowboy hat, and a pool stick as a sword!)
-Went to Wal-Mart to pick up more stuff.
-Came home and packed some more.

-Ate with Alanna and a few others at Show Gun for her birthday. It was so good. And it was really fun

-Went home.

-Went to work. It was good, kind of steady

-Came home

A lovely pre-lunch show   
07:49pm 03/02/2005
mood: full: the story of my life
Went to school. Nothing really happened today. It was Alanna's 18th Birthday! Yeah! We had another fire drill. Ummm...Oh yeah. Before lunch, we had the STD Slide show during our sex education! I saw this guy with a sore on his mouth. After that, I had to put my head down. I became very hot, my face felt flushed and I was very light headed and dizzy. I thought I was going to literally pass out. I can't handle that. Yeah, that's about all that happened at school.

After words, I came home. I slept for a few minutes. Then, I sang with my piano. Later that evening, a couple of friends and I went to Red Lobster b/c I had a gift certificate. I picked up Cameron and Elyse, and we met Michael and Ashley there. It was so much fun. We are so loud (well, mostly it's just me, but that's okay). Cameron announced my weight to the whole table and the surrounding tables. That was kind of embarrassing. We ate chocolate cake at the end. It was amazing. We all said, "I can't eat that, I'm too full." But when it came, we all ate it. After that, Elyse, Cameron and I went to Petsmart to pick up some crickets for Hugo. Then, I took Cameron and Elyse home. We jammed to Phantom, Ace Of Bace and then The Mammas and the Pappas. Now I'm home, and full.

I was making up stuff for the journal I had to turn in for leadership today. I wrote about my weight. I really put how I feel about it down on paper. I just sat there and read about it. I'm sick of it. I don't want to look or feel like this any more. I want to be skinny. I need to put mer effort into it. I'm ready.

We go to LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS IN 2 DAYS (and we're spending the night in Atlanta!) Then, I leave for Washington in 4 days! I'm so excited.

The only thing worth writing about for the past two days is that I saw:

He is freakin' amazing! The concert was amazing! It was at the Philips Arena in Atlanta. Brandon had bought me a ticket for Christmas. It was incredable. His voice sounds effortless! I'm so jeleous. Didn't get home until 2 in the morning, and I had to search for Hugo (found him in my closet in one of my shoes) b/c he had escaped. So, I didn't go to bed until 3 and my mom made me go to first period today. Nothing happened at school today. Okay, that's it. I'm tired!
