Illness & Injury! Last day of August!


Every time a show ends I completely crash! On top of the adrenaline crash, I caught the famous 'back-to-school' cold. It was very bad timing. For the injury part, on Monday I was helping teach a group of people this audition dance for Annie and I didn't put on the grip tape on the bottom of my character shoes. I landed on the leap and my ankle slipped and rolled under. Great way to end August...sarcasm...gotta love it :)

And yes...I am in 'Hipster' glasses...yes...I am using a Power Ranger blanket...and yes...that book does say 'Stuff Hipsters Hate' When I ordered it at Barnes & Noble this was the conversation I had:

Me: Hello
Worker: Hi, how can I help you?
Me: I'm looking for a book.
Worker: Alright, tell me the title and I'll see if it's here.
Me: Alrighty, the title is "Stuff Hipsters Hate"
Worker: (laughing) Really now? (Looks at my clothes) Okay. (types it in to his computer) It should be in the humor section. (Leads me to the humor section)
Me: (laughing) Isn't it ironic how someone's "way of living" is in the humor section?
Worker: (laughs his head off) You people are too funny!

Let me explain the clothes. I was wearing grey oxfords, dark wash shorts, plaid shirt with my hair in a high ponytail with a ribbon and my glasses. It didn't really help the case.

I can't believe I've been doing this blog for 2 months now! :D I'm loving it!
Hope you all have had an awesome August! Let's have a super September! Yes...yes I did just do that :)

A Chocolate Fix

On Thursday my brother and I went to this candy store in downtown Carmel called the Simply Sweet Shop! There were these adorable candy bars that had the funniest boxes! So I bought two: The Ultimate Balanced Diet and Girth Control Chocolate. It was so funny showing my parents making them look twice at the box :) The chocolate is delicious and I am excited to get the other boxes :) They'll just be fun to have in my room!

On another note, tonight is the last night for Hairspray which is the show I am in! Our ticket sales are almost sold out! :D It'll be an awesome night!

Great Day!

I had such a great day today. Plain amazing! Woke up and since it was a late start I was able to sleep in and catch up on some long lost sleep :) Then, I took a test first period in psychology and felt like I got an A! Made me feel so good! Next, I had SRT and drew a cute little picture which is the one up top. I didn't get to finish it though so it's not colored completely (It says Teeny Tiny) Afterwards, I had choir and we were having auditions for solos for the song "I Can See the Light" from the movie Tangled! AHH too cute! I'm proud of my solo and I'm hoping something great will come out of it :) Lastly, I had applied music were we got our first solo assignment! I was given one of my all time favorite songs which is "A Part of That" from the musical The Last Five Years. It's such a great and sad love story (: After school I went to Barnes and Noble to look for a book called "Stuff Hipsters Hate" My friend recommended it to me because apparently I'm a hipster hahaha! Who knew? Apparently all my friends did. They didn't have it at the store but I did order it and I will own it in 3-4 business days! I'm kind of hesitant to read it...

So that was my greatness of the day! I hope yours was just as great!

Tuesday Tunes!

Today after school my brother, Karl, and I went to hang out at this used book store called Half Priced Books! Along with books they sell games, dvds, cds and records :) In my room I've designed each wall to have a certain focus. I have a theatre wall, photography wall, dream wall and now I can start my record wall of some of my favorites! 

Each were only 50cents and I was so happy for my choices! I got Paul McCartney's Pipes of Piece, Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge Over Troubled Water, and two classic Broadway shows I love: Cabaret (Joel Grey and Liza Minnelli) and Jesus Christ Superstar! 

When I own my own house I want to have a music room that holds my piano, guitars and any musical instruments. The walls will be covered with record covers and I'll have a record player and a dance floor :) It's a bit ambitious but I wanna make it happen! 

How was your day? I hope it was great!

We Are Cupcake Warriors!

Oops I did it again! Haha ;)

(Taken with Instagram)

Both of my brothers and I made white chocolate and milk chocolate molten cupcakes :) They weren't the best batch I've made but they were still pretty tasty! Very chocolaty which is how I like it haha! 

This weekend has been completely busy with Hairspray and teaching classes and now I'm helping with choreography for the next show Annie! I got bruises from teaching the girls the audition dance to "Hard Knock Life." :P My knees kill haha! How do those little girls do it? Anyways, Sunday was nice and relaxing. Everyone for once was home and the kids had a fun little jam session!

We played songs from Mumford and Sons, The Beatles, Adele, Death Cab for Cutie...and the list goes on and on and on :) I'm helping my brothers learn how to play their instruments...slowly but surely (:

How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one!

Theatre Thursday!

For those of you who don't know me, the one thing you need to know about me is...I'm a really big theatre nerd :) I live, eat, sleep theatre! Whether it's dancing, singing, acting or even backstage you'll always see me involved in something theatrical! I'm in love with everything Broadway!

Right now I'm in a show called Hairspray the musical and we've opened the new Center of Performing Arts theatre here in Central Indiana! It's been an amazing run so far starting last Thursday! There's still two more weeks to go! I'm actually rushing to get this post done so I can head off to the theatre for the show tonight!

Here's a picture of me and the cast in Hairspray! :D I'm the second one far right. Don't you love my dress and wig? (: 

Hope you have an amazing theatrical Thursday everyone!!! :)

Wacky Wednesday

Welcome to Wacky Wednesday! :D

I wanted to show you guys all the wacky things in my life! Well...I couldn't do all because then this post will be way too long! Haha :) Anyways instead of all I'll just show you some of my favorites! 

Picture #1 is of me and my favorite blanket! It has polar bears and penguins on it and I got it last Christmas when my friends and I did a white elephant party :) It's soo soft and warm, which I love! and once dog was attacking me! For some reason he doesn't like it when I use this blanket...strange dog haha :)

Picture #2 is the beginning of my 'hipster' glasses collection! 2 awesome sunglasses and one prescribed pair. I love love love my glasses 8D YAY FOR NERDS!!!

Picture #3 these pens went out of style a couple of years ago but I still love them! They're so cute and adorable! It's like they their own little personalities. 

Picture #4 is of my little drawing doll. I love making it do cool poses! Right now I made her do a 'S' for Sharmaine! hahaha...yeah...I'm not too clever :)

Picture #5 lastly (my favorite) Is my panda hat! If I could choose a nickname that was a kind of animal...I would choose panda! :) I've been telling people to call me panda without giving them an explanation why so they just look at me with a confused face...hahaha...I also have a panda ring!

Hope you all enjoyed and had a great Wacky Wednesday!

Teeny Tiny Tuesday

Going along with this weeks theme I'll talk about the tiny things in life that I love! :) I'm 5 feet tall (and a quarter of an inch) So I love a lot of little things like me! 

Picture 1 is of my brand new ukulele! Well actually my brother Karl bought it to be like Charles and I playing a string instrument. He wanted to be unique by being the one playing the ukulele. It took him a really long time to learn some chords but took me about 5-10 minutes to figure out three songs. Yeah...I love music :)

Picture 2 is my all time favorite necklace. I got it at Forever21 for a really good price! It's a mini camera (since I'm obsessed with photography) It isn't a real camera but how cool would that be if it was! But I still love this necklace even though it can't really take pictures!

Lastly picture 3 is my puppy, Ollie! He's teeny tiny (especially after we cut his hair) and I love him! He's three years old and a total lap dog. He looks scared in the photo because he was trying to bite my face off and got distracted by the camera noise on my computer :)

So how was your Tuesday everyone?
Hope your weeks been great so far!

Manic Monday

I think I'll be making this weeks posts titles with alliterations :) 

(Photos from

It's only Monday but I already wish it was the weekend. I've had such a busy day today! Of course today I had my hard classes. After school my brother (Karl) picked me up and we went to get an envelope at the post office. Then we went home to pick up my other brother (Charles) and had a sibling bonding day in Indianapolis. I found the perfect pair of heels that look like booties! So I'm buying them after my work on Saturday :) It'll be great because I'll be taller with shoes that don't look like heels! Anyways, we went home and I made a chocolate souffle! SOO DELICIOUS.

While waiting for it to finish baking, Charles and I began our co-op mission with the game Portal 2! If you love video games you should play this one! It's so amazing :D Now my family and I are starting our Monday show list. Starts with Warehouse13 then Alphas and last Degrassi. Gotta love my nerdy shows! 

Those pictures make me miss summer so much :(
Have a great rest of the week!

Film Withdrawal

...I'm on a withdrawal :('s been weeks since I've had time to be able to buy more film and take pictures. I have been completely swamped with theatre and music and school. Luckily I've been saving up my money from work and I'm close to having enough money to buy this beauty! The Sprocket Rocket :D It's a 35mm camera with a wide angle lens! It's amazing and I'm so excited to get it soon!

Here are some pictures I took a while ago with my Diana F+ also know as Parisa :) told you I name my things!

Hope you're all having an awesome weekend :)

I'm Late I'm Late!

School started on Tuesday! You'd think since it's the first week of school they'd start you off easy...boy was I completely wrong! My school goes on blog classes so this is my schedule:

Blue Days:
Spanish 3
Honors English
Algebra 2

Gold Days:
Blue and Gold Company (Choir)
Applied Music

First day of school was a blue day. As you can see all those classes aren't exactly easy. I had homework in every class. Gold days are luckily a breeze! But on top of all the homework I'm in a show. So, right after school I have to do homework then rush over to rehearsal. 

Speaking of is the opening night of the show I'm in, which the name might be strangely familiar to most of you. HAIRSPRAY! Yup :)

So those two pictures up top basically represent my how I've felt in the past few days. Soon rehearsal will be over and I'll be able to get into the hang of things school-wise and be able to manage everything else :)

Talk to you soon...maybe haha :)

Last Day of Summer 2011

Tomorrow I have to go back to school :P I'm not too excited about this especially since this summer has been 'infinite' to quote Charlie from Perks of Being a Wallflower :) But on the other hand I am excited to get one more year closer to college :)

Also, in this post here I talked about how my friend Elizabeth was going to make a feather print maxi skirt into a shorter skirt for me to wear to school! And she finished!
This is the Before:
This is the After:
Yes, this will be my first day of school outfit! I'm super excited :) Thanks Elizabeth!
You guys should definitely check out her blog Colour Me Fashion. She has a DIY my skirt!
 Can't believe summer's done :(
Hope your summer was as eventful as mine!
What was your favorite part of summer? :)

Their Golden Times

Here's my mom
                                                                   and Here's my dad                          
and Here they are together! <3
Here are the pictures of Their Golden Times

I'm starting my first 'blog series' today! As you can tell I'm calling it 'Their Golden Times'. 

My mom and I decided that since my brothers and I are getting older we should make a scrapbook for each kid instead of just keeping all the photos in a large box. So, as my mom and I separated the baby pictures according to the kids I happened to stumble upon some old photos of my mom and dad! With each picture came a story. What they were doing. Who they were with. How old they were. Someday in the future I want to go to the Philippines and visit these places :)

The first two are what started it all. Polaroids of my mom, Milaflor (which means millions of flowers) next to tropical flowers, and my dad, Carlo, working. The next two are pictures of my parents on some of their many dates. The the last two are just precious. The one of my dad if of him singing The Old Gumbie Cat from Cats when he was the president of his schools show choir. (I guess it's in the genes:) from 1987. He was 24 in the photo! The one of my mom is at their farm and on the back of the photo was small writing that said 1982. She was 18 in the photo! 

Hope you all enjoy this blog series :)

Last Friday of Summer 2011

 So, today is my last Friday for 2011's summer vacation! My friends and I decided it would be fun to go to the mall for the day and hang out! The first photo is of me and my friend, Sarah, when we found some pretty epic hats. They were so cute! Then, Elizabeth and I decided we both wanted to try on this dress with what I believe was a cotton candy design. Haha! It definitely didn't work on either of us :)

Afterwards we went to Joannes where Elizabeth bought her material to make a dress (which she will be putting in a DIY post on her blog) Then we went to Goodwill and I found this adorable feather printed maxi skirt that was pretty big on me for $2.30! Elizabeth is also going to be doing a DIY project on that skirt for me :) She's taking it in 2 inches and making it into a shorter skirt because a shorty like me can't wear maxi skirts :P Haha! So I'm really excited for her upcoming posts!

Now I'm off to a 'Before school starts' bonfire with friends!

Hope everyone started their weekend great :)
