Dear Readers,

I just got home from my final dress rehearsal before opening night tomorrow! This week has been exhausting, but I can’t wait for tomorrow. So much of my family will be in town that they might fill up the gym by themselves! (Not really, but still!) And my wonderful best friend Callie will be coming to see me and staying for the weekend. I am so so so excited. This show has been really stressful at times, but I’ve made a lot of new friends and I love playing Cinderella with my totally awesome Prince Charming ...

Week 29

March 28, 2014 10:56 a.m.

Dear Readers,

So, it’s the beginning of tech week. And that means next week is dress rehearsal week. And that means opening night is a week from tomorrow! I’m excited and nervous and anxious and happy and sad all at the same time. This week has been a little crazy, but nothing compared to what next week will be like. I’ll be practically living at the school until the show is over, and that means it’s going to be really hard to go to the Y. Weeks like this are when I’ll have to be ...

Week 28

March 21, 2014 1:55 p.m.

Dear Readers,

I just got home from a Zumba class at the Y with Gracie and it was awesome! I had forgotten how much fun Zumba is, and we were laughing enough to give our abs a double workout. If you’ve never taken it before, I would definitely recommend it. Even if you’re not the world’s greatest dancer, the class is just fast-paced enough that you get a good workout, but not so fast-paced that you can’t keep up. Finding new ways to workout makes getting active so much easier!

In other news, (extremely exciting news ...

Week 27

March 17, 2014 2:45 p.m.

Dear Readers,

This week has been really great so far: minimal stress, rehearsals are going well, and not too much homework. All in all a bit relaxed. The most exciting thing I’ve done is attend a cardio kickboxing class with my friend Gracie. And let me tell you- that was crazy. I was sore for days and the school secretary was there and totally showing us up. So, rather than delve into my embarrassing lack of kickboxing skill, I’ve decided to give you a “tour” of my lunchbox. I figured that suggesting you eat healthy can only get ...

week 26

March 06, 2014 9:49 a.m.

Dear Readers,

So I’ve learned some interesting things this week, and I’m going to share them with you. I’ve learned some things about myself, my friends, and general healthy living. Ready?

First, this week I tried getting up early to go to the Y before school. I assumed I would totally hate myself in the morning, but I was so wrong. I’m not exactly a morning person, and meeting my friend at 5:30 sounded like a fate worse than death. However, once I got there, I loved the feeling of accomplishment I had for the ...

Week 25

February 27, 2014 3:50 p.m.

Dear Readers,

Since rehearsals have started up again, I’m getting really busy. Add that to the fact that scholastic bowl isn’t over yet, solo and ensemble is next weekend, we just started a class novel, and we had a paper due this week … yeah, my free time is pretty much nonexistent. But I’d rather be busy than have nothing to do, so I’m not really complaining!

So, at drama this week, I was talking to my friend Gracie about how she’s been getting in shape, and I thought you’d like to hear about it ...

Week 24

February 21, 2014 3:05 p.m.

Dear Readers,

So I had an awesome trip to Oklahoma! The college visit I went on (I still can’t believe I’m old enough to be looking at colleges) was totally fabulous, and I’m really considering that school. It was wonderful to see my family and my friends, not to mention all the new ones I made! I cannot wait for this summer when I get to go back and visit.

So I did end up going prom dress shopping, but unfortunately I didn’t find a dress I wanted to say yes to. But do you want ...

Week 23

February 13, 2014 4:04 p.m.

Dear Readers,

This past week was one of the most fabulous ever. EVER. I got the role of Cinderella in the spring musical, and I’m totally thrilled. I’ll remind you closer to time, but you should definitely come see it!

Now, as if being Cinderella wasn’t fabulous enough, my mom came to our P.E. class this week as well. Not for a lesson, but to weigh everyone and check their progress. Would you like to know how much I’ve lost since the last time they came to weigh us? I’d be delighted to tell ...

Week 22

February 06, 2014 9:07 a.m.

Dear Readers,

I’m writing this on yet another snow day! I don’t think we’ve gone a full week since we came back from winter break, but I’m not complaining. Everything is going really well, and the most exciting thing going on is Cinderella auditions (if we have school) tomorrow! Even though drama season takes up all my free time, I honestly wouldn’t give it up.

So this past weekend I took a lot of my clothes that either didn’t fit or I kept but never wore up to a consignment store in Champaign and ...

Dear Readers, I didn’t realize there were so many of you! I honestly thought the only person who kept up with this blog was probably like, my Granna (she deserves a shoutout for always reading and complimenting my blogs). However, this past week I was told by a surprising amount of people that they had been keeping up with and enjoying my blog. Thank you for that! ☺

Gratuities aside, I’d like to give you a few helpful tips that I have recently learned! Here they are in a convenient list form for your enjoyment.
