FireFlare77's Blog -- A New Musing

Postby Fireflare77 » Mon May 11, 2009 7:23 am

Blog Foreward:
I always come to this section thinking that I have a blog. Then I realize each time, with great dissapointment, that I don't. So now I do. But I should warn any potential reader who would be crazy enough to willingly delve into the inner-most recesses of my mind and heart that I am extremely... maticulious in detail (some would say long-winded, I say "maticulious"). The second thing is that I make a huge number of spelling errors. None of them are intentional or careless- I misspell a great many words. To make it up to the potential reader, though, I make my gramatical accuracy a key point in my writing. Finally, I'm thirteen. I'm almost fourteen. And at some point you may be thinking something that relates to my age. I can assure you, though, that for all intents and purposes herein, I may as well be at least sixteen. So, if you're still interested, by all means- read on...

Edit 9/27/2010: 15 Years of age, and at least 21 mentally (in most states)

5/11/2009

I should be using these last few hours of the gloaming to get something accomplished. I have a worksheet on the constitution and a small science project. But I find that unraveling life's mysteries through deep reflection and through reading deep works is GREATELY more fuffiling.

But I'm still here- still writing. Writing is my escape from it all. (Although, upon reflection, it isn't. The philisophical essence of an escape is my escape- the physical manifestation of an escape often takes shape in writing. One of my other callings is art. I do sketches in History class. I create fantasy scenes as well as geometric art using standard shapes.) Drama is one of my other two escapes- I'm an avid actor. Its my chance to be someone else. Last month, I was cast as Tommy Albright in Brigadoon (if you don't know the play, I would recommend looking it up. It might sound vain to describe the size of my part....). Anyway- my third calling of sorts is the search for answers through conversation. Sounds simple, right? ... Not so much. I may get a chance to describe that later.

So. Now you now a small portion of the abstract work that is me. Now for some blogging.

I'm sitting here, now, debating what to say... OK... I'll try.

We're into full swing with Brigadoon. My line memorization isn't coming along as best I'd hoped. On the bright side I have a little under a month to be off-book. On the even brighter side, nobody from the play will ever get to read what I really think of them. :idea: Does anyone think that it's unprofessional for an actor to have a crush on a fellow castmember? :headshake: But that may well be beside the point. And now I'm at another debate. I shouldn't say anything online when i'm so tired. At least in person I can deny that I've said anything... but here... not so much. So I may have to wait untill I'm more awake... or at least more sober... before continuing. :coffee1: It is at approximately this point, and from this point forward, that I've established a need for a caffine addiction as to regulate my sleep cycles. ...

And to think- I could have told the world any of the experiences that have shaped me, some of them actually worth reading, and instead I'm telling the world that if I'm not addicted to something already, I need to be. How sad is that?

Because this entry was so worthless, I promise to try to someday do better... *grimace*

Thanks for your time,
"Greg"

6/19/2009

We had another exausting play practice last night. It's one week untill opening and the director still hasn't totally blocked everything. And because time management has been "a little lacking," she's taking it out on the actors- namely me. I had myself (what I thought to be a well-concealed) breakdown because of it. She was ruthless in my verbal assault. Anyway, since today is my first day of no school, I've got several hours where I'm not expected to get anything done... that is untill she gets up. We've got practice five hours a night six days a week now. I've got the lead... *exasperated* And the assistant director is *coinsidentally* going over all the scenes with her (chorus) daughters in them that DON'T MATTER TO THE PLOT AT ALL! There are some scenes of mine that I haven't gotten to do on stage yet. And because there are two casts in the play, I've got to learn two parts with half as much stage time. How's that for a good production?

All this stress has proven to bring about a few good things, though. Coffe addictions are great- no sarcasm here. Iced mocca... *dreamy* And meditation. And bubble baths. What a simple wonder. When was the last time that any of you had a bubble bath? It's better than you think.

So... yeah- I'm stressing. But I'm pretending to be normal around everyone else. I'm a good enough actor to pull off something like that, right? Wearing a plastered smile?

On a happier note, the thirteenth was my birthday. I am now fourteen.

Yesterday was the end-of-year assembly. As a treat to our choir teacher who is leaving this year, the 4th period choir got up and sang "Seasons of Love" from Rent (her favorite song). In the 8th grade awards, I was voted "most likely to be on American Idol".

Untill next time,

Dearest Blog,

Sorry for the lag over the -insert obscure religious holiday- season, blog posting is back to normal now... If there is a normal. Opening night went well, with the exception of a few well-concealed blemishes that I, along with the other actors, helped to smooth over flawlessly. Night number two was even better, the absoulete peak of our show; or, as our producer put it, that night "like a snowball rolling down hill, gaining momentum". Well, aparently our snowball crashed into a tree on our closing night. I don't know what happened, really. It just went wrong. Relavant bits of scenes skipped, bits of song missing, even the band had a few glitches- HOW DOES THE GUY ON THE DRUMS MESS UP? (sigh) But anyway... Now that the play is over, there isn't so much of either type of drama surrounding me. That's a nice change.

My next greatest undertaking is my sketch pad. I've already posted the first of my works on the junior board, but I feel that you guys deserve a look also. This is the first sketch, it's not all that great. But having seen it's successors, I can gaurentee you that they are without a doubt better. So hang with me and hold out for the masterpeices. Just so that I don't put too much pressure on myself for a deadline, the most anyone should expect is once a week, should they choose to follow my sketches. I hope you enjoy the first one, "In the blindness of the night"

Untill that one time that comes after now,

NOV 2, 2009

Dear Blog,

Annoying and nauseating high school drama today. And not the good and theater-related kind. Apparently, I've been backstabbed. Big time. And now I don't even have the small pleasure of venting about it on the junior board because (guess what) he's over there now too. It turns out that he'd been reading the thoughts and feelings that I thought I'd been sharring with strangers and Lydia for months now. And he just told me today. That's the drama in a nutshell. But it gets worse. :nonono: That's just the kind of year I've had. The one person that I've gotten close to in forever. But this makes me glad in a sense. Learning some things about who to trust. I was
