You make me want to SHOUT!!!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to tell you all that I got the internship at Marin Shakespeare Company for the Summer!!!!!

I found out on Thursday and am dying of excitement. I will be taking classes on all things Shakespeare and then be in the Ensemble for their first show King John which is a rarely-done history.

So if you live in the Marin area, come by and see the show. It runs from July 6 to August 12.

That's all for today!

Kick off your Sunday shoes

Happy Easter all of my readers!

I hope you are having as good of time as I am.

So here's an update on all of the great stuff I've done throughout my break.

On Friday, I had a reservation at a restaurant called Founding Farmers which serves organic American style food. It was unbelievable. I had the Farmer's salad and butternut squash ravioli which just rocked my world. So much better then dorm food.

Then as I was on the Metro on my way to Chinatown, I overheard one of the stranger conversations in my life. This lady was talking about her "non-sexual boyfriend" named Shoe and her friend named Bird. I have never heard anyone with those names before.

Then I wondered around Chinatown down to the Mall and the weather was beautiful, but a little windy. Then I went to the Washington Monument which was actually my first time being down there. This old lady had me take a picture of her in front of the monument.

Friday night was my first time having the dorm to myself and I watched the movie Nowhere Boy about the story of John Lennon before the creation of the Beatles. It was quite a beautiful movie and I am not even a huge Lennon fan. Then the greatest thing occurred, Mean Girls was on TV.

Saturday I went to the matinee performance of Eugene O'Neill's Strange Interludes at Shakespeare Theatre Company. It was an amazing show. The best part was that I had paid twenty bucks for a bad seat up on the mezzanine but when I got there, they told me that they were giving me a better seat. I ended up eight rows back from the center in the Orchestra. I was so excited. It was a long play and had been cut down from seven hours to four hours. It reminded me of Downton Abbey a little bit. I would recommend anyone go see it.

That night, I watched Dirty Dancing and got so excited singing "I've Had the Time of my Life" that I decided to listen to the original song from Footloose. I've never danced so manically and it was 1:15 in the morning.

Today I celebrated Easter by going to the museums again, like last year, and then got a great meal at District of Pi which serves awesome pizza. I was very my vintage 1950s dress and people kept staring at me which was a little uncomfortable but great. Now I am just chilling in my room and I have tomorrow off.

I hope every has a great day.

But I would not feel so all alone


So as usual, I have not been posting anything because this semester is a real kick in the ass. But if you read my blog last year then you will understand why I can finally post again.

It's Easter Break!!!!

I celebrated my first day of break by going to Georgetown and got food at Sweet Green and went shopping around (but bought nothing). Tomorrow I plan on going to lunch at a place called Founding Farmers which has organic food. I am very excited.

I stumbled across this really cool bakery today that would fit well in San Francisco. It's called Baked and Wired because it serves coffee and baked goods. The whole store makes plays at the term "baked" and makes references to 420. Hence why it will fit in well back in California. Everything about Georgetown in so beautiful, I love it.

My shopping today consisted of buying stuff on my new favorite site, Pinup Girl Clothing. I plan on buying my dress for my cousin Aileen's wedding from there and the stuff I bought is what I have been lusting over for awhile. Also excited about this.

It will be very nice to relax for the next few days. I'm going to see Strange Interludes at Shakespeare Theatre Company on Saturday and am very excited. I've heard it's good.

Well that's the low down on my life. I have three weeks after break and then I am done with my Sophomore year. That is so scary!

Well, I'll keep you updated on my break. Hopefully it will be loads of fun. Now I am relaxing watching The Aviator after TWO Lifetime movies. They are ridiculous but addicting.

On another note, today I was leaving a bookstore and an old black man loudly said "Oh My God, Hello!". I said hello back and kept walking. It was kind of odd but flattering.

Well, Bye-Bye!
