Morning Person


What?!?! You’re a morning person?!?! Morning people exist?!?! Yes, I am a morning person, and right now I’m a four in the morning person. I wake up this early every day. I usually don’t have any time in the morning because I shower, do my hair and makeup, get dressed, eat breakfast, do last minute homework, that kind of thing. However today, I finished very early. Therefore, I decided to write to you guys.

I guess that I’ll just do an update because I really don’t know what to write about. So, if you look to the right at my milestone, you will see that today is a milestone because I get to find out what part I have in the school play. That may not seem like a big deal, but to me it is. I love acting because I can be someone else. On stage I’m not Ivory Lace (haha the fake name I made up when I was 12 and decided to be anonymous). I get to live a million lives through acting (and through reading but I’m talking about acting haha), and it’s incredible. It’s also a great way to escape any problems in my life. Not to run away from them, but to just get a breather. Acting allows me to take a break from the issues plaguing me, and then I can go back to my life refreshed and new and ready to tackle the problems. Acting is a release for me. It’s very nice to do stage combat, that releases a lot of anger haha. Just a nice fake slap, or sometimes the director tells you to actually slap the person (softly). It’s funny, I’m a very nonviolent person, but I always end up the person who has to slap someone in shows. So to sum up, acting is amazing.

Moving on haha. Okay, tonight is also my chorus concert, and I’m very nervous because it’s my first holiday concert with select chorus (a chorus you have to audition for and not everyone gets in). The holiday concert isn’t the first concert, but there are three traditions that are hard to uphold. Firstly, we start the night out by singing Christmas Canon and we walk through the audience with fake candles and that’s the only light in the entire room. Next we do our songs, then the select orchestra comes on stage and we do a song with them. Lastly the orchestra and chorus invite anyone who wants to come up on stage and sing with us to do so. The song that is always sang is Halleluiah. I don’t know if any of you guys know this, but that song is incredibly hard to memorize and even harder to actually sing. So yeah, very difficult to uphold these traditions. Oh and then tomorrow we do our concert (minus the Christmas Canon and the orchestra songs) in front of the whole school, twice. We do it twice because our school is too big to do it all at once.

Wow, if you didn’t know from previous posts you know now, I’m a theater nerd. I love acting, singing, and dancing. Well, on that note I’m going to go. Alright, unless I post (yet again) before Christmas, Happy Holidays.

Creative Cat


By now you guys should know that my hobbies and talents tend to be on the creative side of things. I write, I sing, I dance, I act, these are all things that require a certain amount of creativity. While those are my main hobbies, I also like some other creative things. By that I mean that I really enjoy art. Art can come in many forms. The basics are paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, and so on. However, dance is an art. Music and acting are also arts. I love the arts, but I’m not skilled with a paintbrush by any means. I can sketch a little (meaning that when I sketch people can tell what it’s supposed to be at best) and I really like working with oil pastels. The art I make though is no still life, nor portrait. I make representational art (abstract and surreal). When I draw or paint or sculpt, I prefer to make something that makes people think. I want people to wonder what the meaning behind my art is. (I also like drawing cartoon people for fun haha.)

You’re probably like, why the heck is she telling us this?? Well, the reason is that I’m trying to show you guys my other sides. I wanted to branch out, so my blog could touch all kinds of people. If you read my last post then you know all about my idea. The main point of me telling you about my artsy side is because I want you to know that if you need someone to share your artwork with, I’m your girl. I appreciate art, however I don’t appreciate obscene pictures. So if you’re going to send me art, make sure it’s pg. If you want to share you’re art with me (I hope you do!!) then email me at adviceateleven@gmail.com 

Even if you don’t want share art and you just want to talk, I’m cool with that. Email me!! Haha, okay this creative cat is out

Classes, Take 2


Okayyy so for those who have read some of my earliest posts, you may remember when I took classes during the summer a few years ago. I took Asian fashion classes and short story classes. Well, now I’m going back again. This time I’m taking stage combat classes!! For you who don’t know, I love acting. Sometimes in plays and movies you see two characters fight. That’s what stage combat is. It’s hitting, kicking, pinching, choking, pulling hair, stabbing, and oh so much more without actually hurting the person. Usually you don’t even touch the person. I’ve taken stage combat classes before; however these classes were shorter and taught by my middle school drama teacher. (She also happened to be my Spanish teacher.)  The classes I’m taking are at a collage and I can not wait. It’s going to be so fun…….. I hope. 

Of course there are the jitters and butterflies. The other kids won’t like me, I’ll actually hit someone, I’ll get made fun of, I’ll get hit. Yepp that’s just a few of the fun thoughts flying around in my head. My trick to overcome some of these thoughts, I don’t be me. It sounds weird but I’m an actress. So I just act like someone confident, or flirty or cunning. I can be whoever I want. Now there’s always a chance that someone I know will be there. In that case I be my shy, mousey self. However, I have a plan B. I wear clothes that make me feel comfortable and some-what confident. I also do my hair and makeup in ways that I like a lot. 
I should tell you guys to be yourself. I should say that if you be 100% yourself, you won’t get made fun of. But I’m a teen, and I’ve been bullied for most of my life, so I know that sometimes, being yourself doesn’t work all that great. Some people don’t care if they be themself and people don’t like them. I’m so jealous of the people who don’t care. However, I do care, so I fake confidence. 

Some people don’t agree with the whole fake confidence thing, but it works for me so. Anywayssss, I don’t feel like writing anymore soooooo,
