Things have been going pretty well. School starts in about 3 weeks and that alone makes me want to throw myself out the nearest window. I really can't do it. I refuse to spend another nine months inside of a High School. I do not want to have to put on pants, I do not want to eat the confusing lunch food, I do not want to associate with people I dislike every. single. day. And I do not want summer to end. Not just summer break, but the actual season. UGHHGHGUGHEIG.
I got a job. It's at this burrito place and I really hate it. First of all there's a huge communication barrier with my coworkers. They ask me the name for something like a napkin or whatever and then they make me tell them what it is in Spanish. Now I'm alright with that even though I'm horrible at it because we can both learn something from one another. But then they want me to tell the name of it in french, the language I took this year. Alright, I got a C in that class, luckily we spent almost a whole quarter on a 'restaurant' unit so I know a few words. But I honestly don't think that any of us are ready to be multilingual, but they insist. They remember French easier because it's a lot like Spanish, and now a few of them are on Duolingo learning that instead of English. So now they're speaking to me in two languages I don't understand.
Plus the customers can be super rude. I think because the majority are tourists they feel like they're owed something. Like I promise I'm trying my very best to be nice and get your order correct I'm just really bad at both of those things. I promise that's a gluten free tortilla. Yes we will pay for your bill if you're rushed to the hospital because of it.
I'm working because I need money. Not just so I can go to maverick when I'm sad and binge on nachos at 11 at night, but because of a New York trip. Lately I've been really obsessed with drama and acting. I love it a ton, and I'm going with 12 other drama kids to New York. It's going to be the best thing ever. We'll see Broadway musicals, be trained by professionals, and see all the amazing things there. I am beyond excited. I'm praying we can see Alexander Hamilton, the musical I've been obsessed with, but that's a really big request. Plus, Sebastian Stan lives there, and I know I won't see him, but I'll be SO CLOSE. MAYBE EVEN SPRINTING DISTANCE.
Summer has been pretty good. I went to Bancroft to spend some time with my family and I really loved it. I went to a Twenty One Pilots concert about a month ago in Salt Lake City which HAS MADE ME COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY INFATUATED WITH EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEIR SONGS. I kid you not, I have listened to nothing but their albums since. And Alexander Hamilton. I mean I liked them before but now I really really like them.
This coming school year I want to switch up a few things. I don't know if I'm going to be playing any sports. I want to devote as much time as possible to acting. I'll be able to maintain a job, volunteer to help direct two children's plays, be in both the fall and spring play, be more active on here, devote more time to school, and volunteer at MCPAWS AND PLAY WITH THE DOGS AND CATS THAT ARE LONELY AND NEED LOVE OMG.
Anyway, just wanted to catch up and by that I mean yell at you about the latest obsessions I have and complain about my life. Okay so scratch what I said at the beginning I will definitely be clearing out some painful older posts but I will fill them with new ones I will like at the time then grow to loathe and then delete as well! I hope everyone has had a great summer.
