I moved my journal to another blog so that it could be separate from everything else. Also, I never really post anything here (other than the journal) so you can probably disregard this blog altogether... i don't know yet.

I'm visiting the Randall Worleys :)
We're already having great fun!
I love my family...

Opening weekend went really well... except that I got sick from the stress levels during Tech week... so I could barely sing on Friday and Saturday.
I drank lots of hot tea with honey, and God gave me a miracle: I made it through all three of my shows this weekend without the complete death of my voice!
I'm happy with how Friday went with Blake, since we had never really rehearsed together (I'd been on with Tommy during tech week).
Saturday afternoon was a fun show... even if it wasn't quite as good as opening... I seem to have more fun with Tommy (maybe because he pays a little bit more attention to me on stage?). hmm...
Sunday afternoon was odd. When Blake and I kissed at the end of De-Lovely, we got cheered by people... it was unsettling.
To my readers... the few that I have... If anyone knows who did that, I'd like to know. Currently, I'm guessing that it was Blake's friends in the audience... but I'm not sure...
Thank you to all the people who came to see me :)
And if you HAVEN'T seen me yet, and you want to, I still have two more shows:
Thursday, September 10 @ 7:15
Friday, September 11 @ 7:15
CONTACT ME NOWWWWWW! ;D
While the drama onstage is great... the drama backstage is getting unbearable.
There are too many cliques, since this is such a huge cast.
Girls are crushing on guys.
Guys are ignoring girls.
People are depressed because of other problems.
Some people are trying to make people feel better.
Shows got mixed up.
Lines got "stolen"
There are so many rumors.
On a happier note:
I've made new friends in just the past couple of days.
I made up with someone (no more misunderstanding)
I've found who my real friends are.
I've had a heart to heart with someone who I didn't really talk to before.
The best thing is: Today is a new day!

I'm going to die.
I can't fall back asleep.
I have school today.
I have rag rollers in my hair. They're falling out. I'm scared they won't look as awesome as my pin curls did last week... but oh well... we'll see.
crap. now the cat is scratching my window. I'd better go let her in.

School is coming. It's about to hit me full force. This will probably be the hardest year of my life (educationally speaking).
Will I survive?
I will survive.
OH, and come see me in Anything Goes, please. If you are coming, let me know sooner, rather than later. Thank you.

I'm packing for Pine Cove!!! I'm super excited!
One problem: I have a cold again this year. :(
My trunk seems to not be as full as it was last year. I'm slightly worried that I'm forgetting something.
my theme night stuff.
my nice clothes for Friday
stuff to write with/on
makeup and straightener for friday.
stuff to take showers with
stuff to put my hair up with
swimming suit and trunks.
toothbrush and toothpaste.
trash bags (for wet and dirty things)
body spray (mmm!)
other items for cleanliness
some just in case stuff
a big water bottle
does it sound good to you?
I hope I didn't forget anything!
I can't wait for this week! It's the highlight of my summer every year!
This year I'm especially longing for it, because I need encouragement. This week will give me encouragement!
God has a plan! know how I know? this has been the course of 2009 for me:
found a mentor
went to SLU
worked at Mission Kids' camp
and after Pine Cove, more action.
I can do anything with God's help! I'm finally starting to get out of this rut!

It went SOMETHING like this:
Tommy - "I really am sick! I even have green snot."
Jamey - "I'm not hungry anymore."

Lately, I've been having a difficult time with life. It's all because my youth group is dying. I feel worthless. I feel like no one cares about me. I feel alone. So alone. I'm making this into a big deal that's all about me. It shouldn't be that way.
I know God is working. I see it. I know He is going to do something great. I just wish it would happen already! This world is too messed up. I can't take it anymore.
I read Ecclesiastes tonight. I'm glad I did. I saw that Solomon felt the same way I do. There really is "nothing new under the sun." I take some comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one to ever feel this way. The world was just as messed up in Solomon's day as it is now.
The problem is that people generally (and I'm definitely including myself here) try so hard to be happy, without help from anything except themselves and the world. Like Solomon said in Ecclesiastes, living that way, depending on the things of this world to make me happy, is meaningless. Life is meaningless without God. Without Him, all my efforts to be happy are meaningless. I will never be happy if I don't look to Him. God created people to enjoy the world and be happy, but we will never enjoy it to the fullest if we don't have Him in our lives.
I'm convinced this is true.
Now how do I get out of the rut of my human nature and live like this!?
