This past weekend was Homecoming Weekend at my school, which means it was also the weekend for Pigskin Revue (basically an annual musical revue).  My mom came to see me perform this year, which was exciting.  I loved having her around, even if it means I didn't participate in most of the Homecoming activities.  So yeah, overall the weekend was nice.  It's so weird that this year's Pigskin Revue is the last time I will perform with Sing Alliance ever, though. I have been in the group since spring semester freshman year, and for several months of every semester since then, it has pretty much been my life. But since I'm studying abroad next semester, I had to check off "Do not intend to return" on our Intent to Return slips a couple of weeks ago. It made me so sad! At least now that it's over for the semester, I'll have quite a bit more time.

Camp Name!

So, as I said in my last post, I'm going to be working at a camp this summer! At this camp, all the children's staff members have "camp names" that the kids call them by instead of their real names.  For example, some of the other staff members this year are Sandpiper, Tiger Lily, June Bug, Moonbeam, Cardinal, Timber, and Avalanche. At any rate, this means I need to come up with an outdoorsy name in the next week or so. Anyone have ideas?

In other news, Sing Alliance Formal was today.  As always, it was a ton of fun!  Although I didn't get a chance to hem my dress, so even though I wore my highest heels, I still kept tripping on it whenever I tried to dance...

Tonight was the last night of Sing, which meant we got the results afterwards. Sing Alliance didn't make Pigskin or win any awards.  It's pretty disappointing, but well, there's always next year. I can't believe the act is over, though.  This semester really is flying by.

I think I'm ditching church tomorrow to sleep and get work done. I didn't go last week either (my parents were here and we overslept), so I shouldn't miss it again, but I have so much to do and I know I won't be getting much sleep next week. So we'll see.

...was a beautiful day, albeit a bit windy.

...I actually got up before 10:40am (my first class on T/Th is at 11:00) in time to go meet with a professor to have him help me with a homework problem. Intermediate Jazz dance teacher was in a MUCH better mood than last class, which made it so much more enjoyable.

...Mike Huckabee (with Chuck Norris) was in town. He came around 3:30pm, but I had class until 3:10. I'm not a supporter (don't know quite who I support at this time), but I decided to go because I thought it would be interesting. Unfortunately, by the time I got there, they were out of room and so I was stuck in a hallway listening to his speech (well, half of it, since I got there a bit late and then people were too loud to hear it until some told them to shut up). So it was kind of a waste of time, since I can listen to a speech on TV or online.  Tomorrow, Hillary Clinton comes to town. I'm even less of a supporter of her, but I would still LOVE to go.  It's history in the making here, even if she doesn't win the presidency. And while I don't support her campaign, I do think its WAY past time we had a president who wasn't a white male. Unfortunately, I have class until 1:50pm (and really can't miss it), and she comes at 2:00. I'll probably head over anyway, but I'm pretty sure I'll run into the same problem.

...I personally had a pretty good performance for Sing! We weren't judged tonight, but we still had an audience, so it feels good to do well. And I think our group as a whole did well, too, though it's hard to say since I can't watch it while I'm performing.  Because it was not a judging night, we got to sit up in the upper balcony for free, as long as we were in costume. So I got to see the first (of three) acts before call time.  I could have watched the three acts after us, but I really didn't have time.

...I really shouldn't be posting on LJ (or be spending time online at all), since I have a ton of homework and I've already slept through my 9:00am class too many times and missed it twice when I was out of town.

Amazing how much better you feel and how much better you can perform when you have had enough sleep and you aren't feeling icky.  Ok, so that's probably common knowledge, but still, the contrast between my personal performance in Sing between last night and today was huge.

So...this is what consumed my life for two months! Video's on YouTube, so obviously the quality's not the best. Also, this is the first weekend, and we made a few changes by the second weekend. All the same, I think it looks great! I'm a yellow fairy, by the way, though you can't really see me...
