Student Play Festival

Guess it’s time I filled you in…  I really should be working on a self-portrait that is due tomorrow.  However, if  you know me you’ll know that it is utterly impossible for me to focus on something for long periods of time for certain things.  Some things I can do but tedious things like shading my boring face just ticks me off a bit.  Sorry for leading by a bad example but I’m the procrastinating queen!  Need lessons?  Leave a comment.  Anyway, back to my story!

At PIUS…  Yes, PIUS.  I know how everyone hates the school but get over it!    At the end of the year after the big shows are over we have the, (drum roll) Student Play Festival.  It’s a series of short plays that are written, directed, and acted by students.  When you audition (any year can audition) you audition for all of them and they cast you in (if any) the one they’d like you in.  This year there were six plays.  I got called back and casted for Maccichi Zulu.  It’s about two lions that are in love.   So, there are two actors.  The lions are called Anshus and Dae.  I’m Dae.   The play is interpretive, so it tells a story using only movement and sound.  THERE IS NO TALKING.  It’s pretty cool and I’m having a great time.  It’s less intimidating to act in front of students, then some hoytie-toytie director.  It’s like hanging out.  Hope all my friends are having fun in high school.  You can do it!  I beg you to survive, it’s almost over!

I get out MAY 24th!  I’m so excited.

TALK!  I know you’re all out there.  If I can do it, you can do it.  Call me.  I’m lonely. JK

Love you all.  Blessings,

Madelyn

Bare Feet

I get in trouble all the time fore never wearing coats and refusing to wear socks and shoes out of the house (aside from school.) I don’t know what my deal is. I love the feeling of cold grass, dew, sand and sidewalk on my feet! Is that wrong? In my opinion, that’s how it was. Not that I’m calling myself a cave woman or anything but thats how it was back then. People didn’t go hunt down mammoths in Nike’s and Adidas’s! Hmmmmm… I going to have to think on the subject a little longer but all in all I don’t think its wrong to be bare feet or to hate socks or to dislike shoes. Its the gypsy coming out in me! That reminds me… I wanted to share a song with you… It’s one of my favorites. Gypsy by Shakira. Tonight I’ll try to post that song on my blog! “Ta Ta my friend!”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

How are you all? Well, I’m as peppy as ever… Though, these braces have been somewhat of a disappointment… I mean I couldn’t eat the chocolate covered strawberries at lunch! Whatever, who cares about food? With braces, eating isn’t ever fun or with pleasure. It’s more of a stupid task. They do feel cool though, and their hurting less!
I love St. Patrick’s Day… If you don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, you have the responsibility to remain happy for the remainder of the day! There is something about St. Patrick’s Day that makes it my favorite! Maybe it’s the green, maybe it’s the shamrocks and luck, and maybe it’s because of my Irish heritage but I just love it! Chicago loves it so much, they dye the river green! (I’ll get a picture tonight.) So long folks! I’ve got rainbows to ride and leprechauns to chase!

P.S. Aren’t these socks, cool?



Daily Fun 1!

Hey, everyone!  I’ve been inspired with that Daily Monster blog so in response I’d like to do a little daily thing-a-ma-jig of my own!  Not to worry though!  I am not breaking any rules of copyright…  I’ve put my own twist on it.  To take part in these adventures watch my video for instructions and use the hints included to help you out with the question which in today’s case is a riddle!  Good luck!  Don’t worry, I’ll play it easy on you today.  Remember, thy who comments first with the right answer gets a treat!  So go on!  What are you waiting for?

Riddle: What travels around the world but stays in a corner?

P.S.  Go Lindsey Vonn!  (I love the olympics.)

Forensics…

I guess theres nothing else to write about, is there? Well, anyway its not like I cant write a post, I made a vow to myself never to skip a day without a legitimate excuse so here it goes! I’m kind of frustrated with my schedule! Every school activity has to be on a Tuesday or Thursday and those are the days that I’ve got something downtown. (extra curricular) I mean, I’m not asking for the world to change for me but it would sure be nice if something was on a Wednesday or Monday. How do they expect Forensic members and Volleyball members to practice at the same time? How do people with other things going manage there schedule? I mean, I’m pretty good at managing my schedule and sacrificing stuff that I don’t need but I can’t give up orchestra and I want to do Forensics and Volleyball! (Orchestra is on Thursdays. Ironic, huh?) I guess I’m just going to have to settle for the private meetings with Ms. Wells and get to whatever practices I can. Hopefully there not all on Thursdays from here on out. Any other day! Come on! Plus, I have to start all over cause the rules have changed from last year. Over the summer I worked on my storytelling piece for this year but now we cant make up our own piece anymore so I’m left searching for a good author… Thats all, nothing but frustration. Got suggestions?
