I Guess I Should Update Again!!

I guess it has been along time since my last update and surprisingly alot has happened! So i guess I should start in May!! So, the week after Spring Sing we had our Jazz Singers Show. It was alot of fun just being able to sing everything we have done this year. I don't know why, but performing means so much to me and the quartet just meant alot to me this year. Our quartet was amazing, our blend was amazing and our chemistry was great!! Not to mention we had the best vocal coach!! Patty is one of the most incredible people I have ever met. Not only was she an amazing coach, but she was like a mother to us.

As a Tradition in choir we have the usual "Cry Day Friday" and yes it was a cry day for me, mostly because I was saying goodbye to alot of people. It wasn't a "Goodbye Ill never see you again" , it was a "I'm really gonna miss performing with you". For me performing is everything and some of the people in choir I've been forforming with for 2 years, so it is gonna be werid not performing with them. That day Dr. B had us sing one of our songs "Grateful" and there is a line in where it says..."I've got a family of friends", as I looked around at everyone there and realized that the friends I had made were my family. I can honestly say that I have made my closest friends in choir.

Moving on!! The week after that....I GRADUATED!!!! Yes, i feel so lucky that I finished my degree at EAC in 2 years. I dont know how I did, but I did!!! Its funny though, cuz apparently there is a reason why I need to head back in the Fall, I dont know what that is yet but I cant wait to find out. Anywho, graduation was really cool since this time I graduated I actually got to be with my friends instead of being seperated like we were in high school.

Disney...not so surprised :)

Another fun thing that happened...LACEY GOT MARRIED!!! Lacey and Pat got married and they looked sooo happy. A few of us to the road trip to see them. It was a very fun trip. So funny story, we get to St. Johns and saw a reception outside and thought "Hey we found it!" so we are walking in and I see the bride kiss the groom, but the groom wasnt Pat. We quickly realized that that wasnt their reception. Laceys was actually down the road alittle more...ooppsy :)

Well since the summer has started alot has been going on. Im currently the Head Swim Coach for the Stapley Night team and i LOVE IT!! Nothing beats getting a tan while doing something I love. However, the biggest surprise of the summer is Tiffany and Jeffs wedding!! Which is being pulled off in less then 4 weeks!!! yeah thats family is CRAZY!!! But Im very happy for them, they are a very cute couple and I have never seen Tiff more happy :) That my friends is how things have been. It is crazy but GREAT!

My Crazy Life!!!

So I know its been ages since I have updated, I have been so busy with everything that I havent had the time to actually sit down and do stuff. I guess Ill give you and overview of this last month.

At the beginning of April, we had our usually Spring show and this year the show was "The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee". It was such a fun show to be apart of. My character was Loggaine Shcwartzandgrubbunier and she was so much fun to play. She is a girl with two gay fathers and she has sooo much energy bottled up in her little 10 year body and she doesnt know what to do with it. The easiest thing about her was having a lisp and acting awkward :) The cool thing about this show was the fact that we had audience volunteers every night and they spelled words with us. For the most part it was sooo much fun, except our last show our volunteers were HORRIBLE!!!! One of them gave me a headache becuase he pulled on my hair sooo hard. However, our last show was cool because my sister was one of the volunteers and she sat by me which made it soooo hard for me not to break. All in all the show was alot of fun, however i was soo happy when it was over.

A week and a half later was our Jazz Singers tour. It was a rather short tour, but it was alot of fun to go to Mesa with some of my closest friends and perform. However, it was pretty draining because we did 5 shows in less then 24hrs. It was a very entertaining tour including our blonde moment on "Blonde" ...."Shoe be" oh priceless moments!!! I realized on this tour how much I gonna miss quartet, we have a great chemistry as a group and we have a blast together. Ive thought about doing it again but I dont think I will because...a) i hate waking up early and b) I dont think anyone can top this years group!!!

A week later we had Spring Sing!!! Oh my heck, I have never been in a more physically and emotionally draining show before. If I counted correctly, I sang 30 songs for this show. Yeah, my voice is sooooo dead right now, I woke up this morning with a really manly voice even more so than Im used to. Anywho, everything about this show was great!! Except for the fact that the girls quartet had to go right after company, and we were soo dead tired from company we barely had enough energy to pull off "Cuz I'm a Blonde" but somehow we did it!!! Our Company set was alot of fun, I have never danced sooo much im my entire life, I dont know how i pulled it off, Heck i dont know how all of company pulled it off but we did. I have to say my favorite song was "SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS", partly because Lauren ROCKED as Mary Poppins, I dont know why Bishop didnt have her do it before!!! Anywho, the company set was great except for our little sound mishap we had on Saturday but I think we covered it well. I think the hardest part of this show was realizing that this was gonna be the last time I perform with some of my dearest friends. Needless to say, I cried alot these last few days, it was kind of embarrassing. It was really a great experience to have all of my sisters sing "The Lord BLess You and Keep You" for the last night. Im gonna miss choir sooo much next year. Howvere, its not just the music that im gonna miss, it gonna be the friendships that i have made. I know that my plan is to come back next year but things could change so I decided that I would treat this as my last Spring Sing.

Here are all the Company girls, we had such a blast this year

These are some of my closest friends in choir

The one person that Im gonna miss the most is Lauren, she helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and has been a great example of always laughing at life even when it gets so hard. Im so grateful she decided to come back and do choir one more year. Singing the "Lord Bless You" was sooo hard, we both were crying the entire time.
Its gonna be werid to do it without her next year.

Its werid to think that Im graduating in 2 weeks, these last two years have gone by soo fast! I'm still not sure what I want to do with my life but I know im gonna enjoy life no matter what happens!!
