2:30 am . . .

and I am up flipping through my government book trying to decide if I hate Gibson's true/false questions, or love them. The issue is that it takes me forever to decide if it's true or false but the upside is that I am really delving deep into my book and learning things that I have never known before. I am actually really enjoying my government class and am very glad I took it. (except when its almost 3 and i'm being a loser and not just answering a silly true/false question)

Missing my Babies

Its official! I'm having kitten withdrawals. I was over at Kelly's and Santi's house last night and was playing with their kitties when I realized just how much I miss my two boys -- Hector and Paris. I can't wait to see them over spring break... although they are not technically kitties anymore and are more like massive tom cats they will always be my kitties. =)

Rousseau's Confessions . . .

I am attempting to write an epic paper on Rousseau's sexual identity as portrayed in his Books of Confessions, but am having a horrid go at it. Right now writing is not the topic floating on my mind. Hopefully I will be able to write an amazing paper by Wednesday but until then I will just need to drink lots of coffee. Yeah for coffeehouses!

 We opened our play last night at union college. We are doing The Dining Room by A.R. Gurney. It went really well and I am loving it! We will be performing 5 more times. Our performances will be Saturday - 8pm, Sunday - 2pm, Thursday - 7 pm, Saturday - 8pm, and Sunday - 2pm. Everyone should come out to see it.

In these particular photos we are performing the birthday party scene. Everyone, except for Desi, on the far right, is playing a little kid around the age of 6. It would have to be one of the funnest scenes to perform and one of the funniest to watch.

There are 6 actors/actresses in this play and we each play 8 to 10 characters. Myself, Desi, Tori, Pablo, James, and Stephen.

Forsaken - By Janna Buttrick

To feel trapped
Stuck in a corner – with no escape
Helpless and wandering
Seeking in vain
Wishing and wanting
Waiting to be heard
But no reply is to come
Lost you shall stay
Left wanting
You become a ghost
                                                                                    To others
                                                                                          To self
                                                                                                To God
If there is a God
He is gone – leaving my life to chance
Mere roll of the dice . . . my destiny

Why should I hope?
Why should I pray?
To a God that has forsaken me
To a God that exists so perfectly in my dreams – reality, a twisted image of the dream

Tears fall
Heart beats faster
Head pounds
But self that is longing goes unheard
                                                                           Is left wanting
                                                                                Out of breath
                                                                                     Cold in the heart
                                                                                          Scared to death
Why trust?
Why wish?
Why hope?
For something, that like childhood dreams of Santa Clause
Is becoming the greatest let down of my mature life
To believe in something in vain
To wish on something unreal
To hope in someone nonexistent
Only hurts
Only breaks
Only tears one apart
In a moments time of being forgotten
I let go
And am LOST
Lost as the damned?
Lost from the lamb?
Lost as a child . . . tears streaming
Wanting to be caught up
Raptured in the moment of – happiness

HELP – If you exist . . . then show YOURSELF
Be real for once
For one – who needs a Father . . . who needs his Son
Please . . . HELP

Please . . . HEAL

Please . . . comfort


Please . . . PROTECT me
For I am lost
I am scared
I am fearful
I am a child
I am in NEED
I have been forsaken -- damned
