Today has been a good day. I didn't have a quiz in literature and my theatre class was really neat today. Our awesome teacher showed us some youtube videos on children's television and what actors shouldn't do when acting infront of children. Saying "HEY THERE KIDS!" in an overly happy and fake voice will terrify them or make them think you are phony. My teacher actually gave this example in such a hilarious way that I was laughing for a straight 10 minutes. Then he showed us this video of the famous Mr.Rogers:

Am I seriously the only one who laughed watching this? I know it's terrible of me and I had no idea why I found this so funny and I'm a terrible person for doing so,  but when I saw this in class I was literally rofl and I swear half of my classmates thought I was on crack. My reaction went something like this during the video;
"He left so fast." *creepily stares into camera* as soon as we started talking about divorce." - I looked over at some other kid in class who's giving Mr. Roger's a dude WTH  look and I start laughing.
"I know a little girl and a little boy..." Laughs uncontrollably. I know this episode was made in the 50's but that doesn't make the way he says it any less funny.
"Are all GROWN UP things" - Dies laughing.

I'm not trying to bad mouth Mr. Roger's he was a cool guy and when I was younger my mom said I used to fall asleep watching him. I'm not dissing people who get divorces or children of divorcee's either. I just am not understanding why this was so funny to me today and I don't like things I don't understand.

As always art class today was productive as usual. At the beginning of class there is always a sign in sheet for us to write our names down on. Today I wrote my name in crayon with the color of  Razzmatazz. Now I did this for a few reasons.
1. I like color
2. I always sign my name in color whenever I have crayons or a colorful coloring tool with me
3. It's an art class. I thought art=color and color=good.

Well not in this classroom environment! Now I shared this lovely colored crayon with some of my other classmates and one guy even thought it was 'sweet' that someone brought in a crayon, because you know, crayons are pretty cool.  

My teacher did not find crayons or color sweet at all.

So I go to sit down at my table and she grabs the sign in sheet and starts flipping out.


Alls I can say is thank God nobody knew I was the bringer of the colored crayon or if they did thank God they didn't tell her. I really didn't think it would be that big of a deal, I mean it's a crayon, not a bomb. And it was in a seeable color, it was not laser light yellow! And from what I can tell I thought everyone wrote their names really neat.

She then starts screaming for another five minutes about how crayons are inappropriate artistic tools for the future artists of the world. Because everyone in that class strives to be a future artist. *sarcasm*


Lol. Stupid lady. I happen to really enjoy crayons! I shall now make it my mission in life to bring in a different colored crayon daily just to see her reaction! I always show up a few minutes early  (pretty much before any of the other kids) so I am going to set a crayon down near the sign up sheet every day and see if people actually write with it just to make her mad. If they don't then there is always colored pencils and marker and she said nothing about not using those. In fact I think I will bring in all three coloring utensils just to really agitate the crazy art teacher.

I Shall Drink Tea and Be Ensemble Like

I got a part in the ensemble for my college's musical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was going to go walk uptown for an appointment to have my eyebrows waxed and I just stepped out the door when the phone rang with an unlisted number. I was going to be super mad if it was a solicitor because I only had about five minutes until my appointment (which included walking on icy roads in which I could trip on and get brain damage) but surprisingly it was the director.

He started talking to me all serious like with a somewhat happy undertone which made me think "oh no, I didn't get a part, FML" but after I thought that for about two seconds he told me that my audition was fantastic and that I had a part in the ensemble!

Rehearsals start tomorrow and I am beyond excited to even have a part! However I will be checking out those cast lists just to be sure...


If anyone cares here are just some things I did with my life today! And even if nobody does care this is MY blog so I shall write whatever I wish!

1. Woke up at 2 pm. Which is strange because usually I wake up quite earlier than that.

2. Shoveled the driveway so it wouldn't look atrocious like our other neighbors and so my mom would be able to drive into the garage. During this process I seemed to have broken my hand somewhat or dislocated something because although I can bend my hand, it really hurts to do so! I guess I won't be punching people in the lip for a few days. =D

3. Made red flavored jello. That didn't turn out well. Who the hell screws up jello? That would be me. I lost the box so I put in 5 cups boiling water- stirred, then realized that cold water was needed somewhere beforehand so I put the bowl in the freezer for 5 HOURS. Yeah, let's not ever do that again!

4. Drank diet coke. A LOT of diet coke. Three 24oz ones to be exact! This has the possability of whacking out my vocal chords come tomorrow!

5. Watched the first half  of the SAG Awards. I read somewhere yesterday that both SAG and AFTRA are going to become one union and I hope that goes through, atleast for the actors sake. I have wanted to join SAG for awhile but the qualifications to join are pretty unavailable here considering where I live it's hard to get into one SAG related film let alone three.

But the awards were pretty professional I must say. I was incredibly shocked that the fantastic Kate Winslet beat out both Maggie Smith and Betty White. Her performance in Mildred Pierce was amazing though so it was well earned.
Oh and how the hell didn't Meryl Streep or Kyra Sedgwick win? I agreed with two of the winners (minus Kate Winslet)
Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series- Game of Thrones
Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture-Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2

That is it. Granted I haven't seen half of the movies nominated yet, but A Game of Thrones and Harry Potter are both fantastic. 

As for Modern Family winning, when they got on the stage the kids from the show gave the speech which was completely and overly stilted and rehearsed but it was nice to see the cast let the kids accept the award. HOWEVER that little acceptance speech clearly made me realize why this show shouldn't have won! It's seriously not that funny, or at least I don't think it is. Then again I've only seen two episodes (based on the fact that Tara Platt was supposed to be in one episode and Stephanie Sheh was in another) and I have an unbelievable disliking towards Sofia Vergara. The speech the kids gave made me facepalm rather than laugh. But who am I to be saying who I think should win if that's what the SAG members liked?

However, my favorite part of the night was when Betty White won for some lifetime movie and Julie Bowen   who was in the same category as Ms. White, took a glass of champagne after the announcement and drank it down. It was a lot funnier than I'm making it sound. In my opinion if you are in a category with Betty White or Meryl Streep you have no chance. 

As for the fashion?
My favorite dresses were:
Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco
Emma Stone

Viola Davis

Dianna Agron

WORST: It's not that beauty Dianna Agron looks bad, but her semi-simple pink Carolina Herrera gown paired with her updo leaves us wanting more ...
Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman who has taken much time off this year to be a mom wowed in her burgundy gown.
My two favorites for best dressed;
Julianna Margulies

Emily Blunt

Now we can't have a best dressed without a worst dressed can we?

Rose Byrne- This would be nice if it was a dress. But it's a body suit which is just wrong.

Amber Heard- Just not digging this dress what so ever.
Amber Heard
Heather Morris- This reminds me of a gender swap Batman.

Kristen Wiig- I saw this woman on television in this dress and although I think she is way too thin to be healthy this dress really sucks and the accessories do not do anything to help it.
Angelina Jolie at the 2012 SAG Awards: Kristen Wiig at the 2012 SAG Awards

Zoe Saldana- I just hate everything about this dress! I cannot wait to see Joan Rivers says about this.

 Below we have George Clooney's girlfriend, Stacy Keibler wearing a dress by Marchesa. As soon as she got out of the limo or whatever it was I said, hey! I think she stole Carrie Preston's look! Although the dresses are a bit different considering Carrie's is much shorter and has a v neck, I do believe that they are by the same designer.

Actress Carrie Preston arrives at the 2012 People's Choice Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on January 11, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

6. Downton Abbey- I skipped the last half of the SAG awards to watch this. This and Person of Interest are the two shows that I am fully obsessed with right now. If you haven't seen one of these shows DO SO! Go watch them right now! But anyways, last nights episode had to be one of the best so far this season. I feel so bad for Daisy and Mary right now it's unbelievable, especially Daisy because of what happened to William. Oh and Thomas is still a complete douche along with Mrs. Bates. Ethel's story line is getting pretty sad and if anything what I learned from this episode is don't mess with Violet (played by Maggie Smith) for she will always win.

Waiting Waiting Waiting La la la

So I auditioned for my colleges musical yesterday evening and for once I found the audition to actually be FUN. At first I was going to be the only person auditioning considering it was the last day to be accepted and I foolishly told the director that I WAS TERRIFIED (stupid me! You know not to doubt yourself infront of the people casting the musical!) but fortunatley a lady who works behind the scenes and I knew from my last theatre class auditioned with me as well which was a relief, especially during the singing part.

Speaking of the singing part, take a guess at what I had to do first! =P

Although I am in no way,shape, or form a singer I was quite proud of myself for actually having the guts to do it. The guy teaching us the music was super nice and the lady playing the piano was super sweet as well. I mean, they didn't even cut me off when I started singing that has to mean something right? Or maybe not, the 2nd verse of the song I was totally off pitch but I'm still pretty happy that I atleast took a shot at it. I listened to the songs beforehand and was actually glad to be doing the one I knew better than the rest considering that calmed me down A LOT and because the people were so nice my nerves went away pretty fast. The music director told me that I was enunciating a bit too much on one word when it should have been another and also gave me a few more helpful tips to keep in mind. Oh and FYI this musical is more about rhythm rather than sounding like the next Christine Daae which I was grateful to learn!

I had a lot of fun during the cold reading as well. I have only done a cold read twice or so in my life and although I think I rocked this part I'm starting to have my doubts, which I do after every bloody audition! I feel that I did pretty good during the first read, the director laughed and both of us went past our stopping place without him noticing. He then asked if I could do a British accent which I replied yes and then doubting myself YET AGAIN I say "I shall try my best." I thought I did OK during that scene despite the fact that I missed a line. After that the director said thanks for coming, you were awesome, see you on Tuesday, go home! Lol. Ok, he had a lot more to say and was a lot nicer than that but basically I went home after the audition and felt HAPPY. Usually after auditions I'm like asdfjkl;fgetrijuitgjgh! But it has taken me an entire day to now doubt myself so I think I'm improving with my SELF CONFIDENCEEEEE!!!!!!

Now it's just waiting until the cast list goes up on Monday. Three days. And even if I don't get a part due to my lack of singing ability or acting performance I will be ok. I gave it my best and I believe that I may have a future career as a curtain puller if I don't get cast and I am perfectly alright with that. It was a fun audition but now the anticipation for the list is going to kill me!

But because I am doubting myself let's look at all the things I did WRONG just for fun so I don't ever do them again!
http://www.geocities.com/gordonproductions/audition.html - Best website ever for newbs to theatre.

1. I do not think I made the director uncomfortable that's always a great thing!
2. I made excuses. I pretty much said to everyone "Haha! I'm not a singer!!!!!!" before the actual singing part happened! Mistake #1.
3. I said sorry about a billion times. Sorry I skipped that line, sorry I don't understand, sorry my voice Crackkedd Taylor Swift style!!!!
4. I did a choreographed routine while singing- alright I'm lying about that one. But I've always wanted to see someone do that. It would definetley keep my attention if nothing else.
5. I think the music director and a few others thought I was on drugs or something because I was smiling and happy throughout the entire audition and said thanks a bunch of times.

But other than those five things I think it went rather well. We'll see come Monday!

Monday, January 23, 2012


Why am I even trying anymore? Nobody supports me when it comes to being a theatre major or even supports me when I wish to audition. I have had to sneak out of the house before just to go to an audition so the director could tell me I wasn't good enough for that particular play. I have had to lie to my mom just so I could audition and be told no. I have auditioned about 10 times just so I could be told no. Not because of my lack of talent but because the director thinks I'm not pretty enough or look too young. I was told once by the guy that directed all the plays at my college that I did fantastic at the audition and have a bright future ahead of me, but I wasn't the person he was looking to cast. Instead a blonde girl who only had one theatre credit listed on her resume got cast in the role. Talent means nothing anymore. If you look like Barbie you are automatically going to be accepted into this world we call theatre.
So why am I bringing this all up now do you ask? First and foremost, I was forced to go to a family dinner tonight at my grandma's house. My aunt who works at a car factor asked me what I plan to do after college and I responded that I was probably going to go to a University in New York or California but I am still undecided. To anyone out there reading this do not tell anyone anything when it comes to what you will be doing after college. Same goes for the question of "What are you going to do with such a worthless degree?" If you respond to any of those questions in a serious way, the responses you get back will be something like this, atleast if you are in my family;
-You need to give up
-You're dream is not realistic
-HA! Good luck in New York! When you go to Brooklyn you'll get shot!
-You're not that great.
-You actually think you have talent?
-Why the hell would you ever want to go to NY or LA? You won't make it there people have more talent than you and have been doing this their whole lives. You are way behind them.
-Why would you ever want to move? You can get a job here!
Then to make matters worse your mom will say something like "She's MAJORING in teaching, but MINORING in theatre." I have no idea where that came from. I really do not get on well with kids and have no plan to teach them in the near future.
Once we left my mother and myself go to the car and she tells me how my major is an embarrassment to tell to other people because I more than likely won't make it. This wasn't the first time my mom encouraged me to give up. Nobody's happiness matters to others, it's as simple as that.
However, I will continue to take criticism with a light heart. I know directors do it so they can see improvement and determination and I do realize that I still have a lot to learn. I refuse to give up on my dream no matter who discourages me from reaching it and I advise everyone out there to do the same. You are better than what you think. Those who discourage you don't see how great you are because they more than likely gave up on their dreams ages ago. You have to power to prove them wrong. I have faith in every one of you out there.
On Thursday I will be auditioning for the college musical for the spring. I'm not much of a singer but I am hoping that because the college has a new theatre director and because singing skills aren't necessarily required with this musical, I will do good.

Baby GIRL!

Ah that kid must be new here. Things like this should never see the light of day. This whole video deserves a prison sentence. I feel like the world has been violated.

I'll keep it short. This guy is a sick,twisted, son of a bitch if he is not trolling. I appreciate different techniques when it comes to acting and sure, this would be a lovely speech to give if you were on Broadway playing a part in a show about Charles Mansons secret love life. However, this is the internet. The public does not appreciate real life borderline psychotic acts where others lives may possibly be harmed. If you post a video like that, your entire life will get destroyed. To quote someone from a youtube comment:
"Youtube is not for confessions of love, eyebrow raising, and camera rocking. It's for cats. Youtube is for cats." So if this was supposed to be a joke it wasn't a very good one.

Seriously, this guy isn't a future serial killer what so ever! Incase you decided to ignore the video above here is how it all went down;

This insane border line stalker of a kid is talking about how much he loves his girlfriend, or I'm sorry "Baby Giirrrllll" Briona. He shows his love throughout the video using crazy lines such as "You mean more to me than just anything, you mean more to me than golden diamonds mean to the greediest burglar." Because everyone knows girls love it when you compare them to unexistant diamonds of the gold variety that greedy burglars like to steal! He continues to say a few more lines like that which not only make me want to puke but also make me want to back away from the screen considering  he seems to want to jump through my computer screen and strangle me. I've never had a boyfriend but the attachment level of their relationship seems a bit unhealthy to me.

He also keeps rocking the camera back and forth and can't keep the camera straight to save his life which may be a good thing considering the stupid kid looked like he was NAKED in the video and many people are claiming that he is molesting himself which I shall leave to everyone elses interpretation. I am going to take a guess and say that the crazy murderous stalker had Briona tyed up to a bed in an abandoned house somewhere, hidden from view, and because this is his first attempt at rape, he was a bit nervous thus meaning the camera was shaking because of his 'nerves' which will be a really poor excuse for him to give when the cops show up... 

But anyways, this guy is a creeper, incase I haven't said that already. ;P  He unneccesaryly blinks for too long, raises his eyebrows in a sadistic way, licks his lips like there is blood on them, and pretty much has the smile of a serial killer. Not to mention he decided it would be fun to give his devotion for Briona an extra kick with the soft, creepy laughter at the end to seal their fate together.

Now I'm not sure if any of you noticed but this guy has an empty closet in the background which disturbs me. Maybe he emptied it so it is ready for when he kidnaps his baby girl against her will! Run. Run, Briona. Run away, and never return!!!

I am almost positive that this guy is a stupid troll looking for money and fame and that everything he said was fake and that there really is no Briona unless it is his cat. Although in my opinion, doing things like this for 15 minutes of fame isn't worth it and is a really pathetic way to get attention. I'm seriously hoping this entire thing was a troll attempt or that kid is in for a world of unfun at his school- same goes for Briona who I feel sorry for considering this guy emotes all kind of creepocity.

Edit: I love people who defend this kid. More than likely they are Twilight lovers. I shall now post some comments idiots wrote defending this messed up love!

"Seriously? Dom , seems like the sweetest person youll EVER meet , I'm 13 0k? And you all need to get over yourself!! You guys are jealous:P they are the cutest couple:) and all the girls would prob. LOVE him to say that to a girl:) everyone needs to be nice to them. BRIONA I KNOW HOW IT FEELS !!! :) I'm DEFFENDING you!! They need to quit!! MESSAGE ME BRIONA AND DOM!! -3" -
No young padawan. 'Dom' seems like quite the effed up specimen of a so called human being. Everyone can see that you are a minor by your atrocious writing and slang. Putting a 0 in place of an O does not make you sound groovy. It is physically impossible to get over one's self for people are born with only one body meaning playing leap frog with yourself is out of the question. I have seen cuter couples in the obituary's. If by cute you mean incredibly stalkerish then yes! I am a girl and I would be uber creeped out and file a lawsuit if he said that to me, not jealous. I am not THAT desperate. I feel that I am being kind to them by stating the reasons as to why this "relationship" will never work! If any girl out there wants a guy to say those things to them, I suggest some strong and professional mental therapy. For the person who wrote this comment, I am immensley concerned if you literally know how it feels to be stalked, especially if you are only 13 years of age.

stop with the hate, brionas a hottie and D's giving her the D. I think its cute. - Giving her the D. I understand completely...

what...you werent incredibly insane at that age? you are boring.- This comment had me rofl so props to this kid!

Briona also made a video response defending her lover!

This video isn't as viral as her boyfriends though. You're not living up to his expectations baby girl. I feel that there is a logical reason for her even responding to him. Anyone else see the tip of the shotgun and notice how her words didn't flow as sincerely as baby boy's? He totally wrote those words for her to say to the camera while putting her in a threatening situation.

Today was my first day back to college officially making it the spring 2012 semester! One more semester to go and I will be out of here!

Hoo Hoo


Anyways, this morning when I arrived at the college I saw four of my lovely friends which automatically made my day a bit more brighter and then I had to go to my literature class which I think has a strong potential to teach me something. The teacher seems really cool so far and I think will be great for the rest of the semester- the students not so much. Some girl who has the same exact name as me sat DIRECTLY behind me after arriving ten minutes late to class with her  boyfriend so I'm a bit scared now that said awesome teacher is going to have a problem remembering who is who but she hasn't messed up so far.

After everyone arrived in class we basically just said our name and had to get into groups to answer two questions. EASY questions. My group was full of potential victims for a pen-in-eye attack. We had to answer a question on the board which stated "What makes libraries different than supermarkets when it comes to the selling of books?" or something to that effect and the girl with my name stated that "The difference between the two is that supermarkets sell cool books such as Vampire Academy which teens can relate to. Libraries only have boring educational books and you have to wait for-ever for them to get a new shipment in! It took me five times until I gave up and just bought Twilight!"

Umm no little missy. You just need to shut up and sit down or I may have to relocate your bones in a very harsh fashion. How can teens exactly relate to Vampire Academy? Sorry to tell you this but most teens I know are not, and will never be, vampires.

Sadly two other GUYS in the group agreed with her!
Guy #1- Haha! You're right, the library is pretty dope! (ah yes, the dopeish library! A place where stoners get their fix while reading! *headdesk slam!*)
Guy #2- Like you I thought Twilight was really a great series >insert totally noticable flirtacious wink here< Libraries are cool but I only use them for the internet. What do you think? (indicating me)
In my mind: Oh you do not even want to know what I'm thinking... 
What I really said: "To me it seems that the library has more variations of books whereas a place like Walmart only seems to sell what's popularized in the market right now just so they can make a profit."

I was given blank stares and after five minutes it seemed that they agreed with me though I couldn't really tell because they were all too busy talking about b-ball or something stupid like that which I totally tuned out because I like my sanity.

After that lovely group discussion we had to read a poem in class, which was pretty simple to interpret and before we left she asked us what our favorite piece of literature is. This is where I almost died. Half of the responses were "I'm not much of a reader" or "I don't like writing" yes, because if you hate reading and writing a nonrequired literature class is the right choice for you!

And if that response is not bad enough every single girl in the room, I kid you not, said something about how "I's loves Twilight" or "Nicholas Sparks for the win!" Someone needed to just get an arrow and shoot my brain out along with my knee.
The guys responses consisted of "How reading sucks," "My favorite novel is SPORTS ILLUSTRATED,"(I wish I was joking too) and my favorite, from some obvious smartass freshmen; "Dr.Seuss." What is wrong with you illiterate jackasses that call yourselves people? Read a book! IT'S NOT THAT HARD!!! I would kindly donate you an 80 page book if I wasn't concerned that you would have a bonfire with it.

Then to make matters worse the teacher tells us that one of her favorite novels is Jane Eyre. Somehow my classmates faces seemed to be clueless as to "what a Jane Eyre is." She asked us if anyone had ever heard of Jane Eyre- my hand along with another lying SOB's went up. How do I know she's a lying SOB? Because I tried to have a conversation with her. She thinks the book is about blueberry picking in Trafalgar Square. Oh how I am going to love this class.

I then had theatre class and let me just say right now that a lot of theatre majors are not kind. One girl kept bragging about how she was the lead in the colleges play last semester and that she has acting experience so she knows about breaking the fourth wall because she is clearly an expert with everything related to theatre. I was thinking about giving her a dollar just so she would shut up but then I wouldn't be able to buy water which is needed for me to live and not sound like death.

I've had this teacher for a few theatre classes before and he's pretty cool. He asked us what types of theatres there are and because I took a technical theatre class last semester so I knew the answer and said "Procenium." I learned that saying any answer was frowned upon greatly by the other scholars in said classroom environment. The only kid who was in my technical theatre class that I wasn't a big fan of and was 'placed' in this class decided it would be a jolly good time to scream at me;
WAIT UNTIL HE DRAWS THE THEAAATRES ON THE BOARD!!! (pronunciation of stupid kid: thee-aye-teeeers)
Alright kid you need to calm down. I did not realize you were so passionate about chalkboard drawings of theatres, I apologize for killing the moment.

Overall the class was alright but Thursday we have to bring in a theatre game. I despise theatre games and I despise giving instructions for games that I despise outloud in a hostel environment.

Now we get to the funnest class of the day; ART!
I love painting and coloring and drawing and crayons and everything related to artisticalness and this class really let me show my creative side by being dictorial! The teacher is an absolute nightmare and scared me like there's no tomorrow. I will admit to being easily frightened but this lady was a demon from hell.

I walked into the class right on time because I was like a stupid freshmen and didn't know where the room was until a kind lady told me that it was held in the auditorium. Art class in the auditorium, I'm not sure how that's going to work out but ok...

So I walk in and this lady was standing infront of the class,arms folded, frowning, with a big overhead projector behind her displaying a depressing powerpoint with a gray background and big black letters stating ART DOES NOT IS=EASY! Now I can ignore the horrid two verbs next to each other but when you are a teacher with a PHD or whatever, not being able to from a complete proper sentance concerns me.

This nutcase began class by YELLING at us, saying that she isn't here to be our friend, doesn't wish to know our names, and if we have a problem with nudity then we need to get the hell out of her room! Now if that isn't bad enough, she started yelling at us "stupid teens" about cell phone policy and how if she sees our cell phone you will not be allowed to return to her class. Ever. I can understand most teachers cell phone policies because I agree that texting in class doesn't make you learn but to kick someone out of class for life is a bit strange and over the top. Mark someone down a point for the day is understandable but kicking someone out of class will not make the people paying for tuition happy, especially if the phone call was a family emergency or something related.

She also stated that she could care less about our personal life and if we have a question we can't ask it in class, we have to email the question to her because she doesn't have time for 'obvious questions' that can be answered by looking at the book. Speaking of the book, I learned that bringing it to class will not get your head chopped off! Some kids forgot their book and this is how all that went down;
Her: Who doesn't have a book today?
-half of the class raises their hand-
Her: Well those who raised your hands keep them up. You are all stupid. And do you want to know why you are all stupid? Because you did a stupid thing! Text books are needed for MY class, you are all so intelligent by not bringing one today! And to those who have yet to buy one, I can guarantee that you will fail my class. I know text books don't come cheap but that is why financial aid helps you jobless wonders pay for them!

Personally I'm not eligable for financial aid but I found that to be a bit insulting and possibly an inaccurate statement.

Later on after she was done ranting about how she hates her job or something like that, she told us to introduce ourselves TODAY ONLY for attendance purposes and basically all of the people were like "Hi my name is Joe and I'm majoring in business" or something to that effect and when it was my turn this is how it went down
Me: "Hi my name is ____ and I'm majoring in performing--"

Oh, alright then. I just thought stating your major was the normal thing to do because half of the class before me did it! I think it will take all of my energy just to not lose it in this class everyday. I am not fond of teachers flexing their meager power over the students like it's the only pleasure they get in their sad lives.

She then tells us at the end of class to write down some background information about ourselves which I can only guess my college is forcing her to ask us to do this. Or based on her previous behavior I could only assume that she wants this information to use against us! I only put the name of the high school I graduated from and now I am starting to think even that was too much.

This shall be an interesting semester.

Golden Globes

So I am a person who watches these type of award shows every single year and get disappointed every single year because the people I don't vote for always seem to win. However it seems that my luck has somewhat changed this year after The People's Choice Awards considering during that award show the two things that I wanted to see win for the categories of Favorite Movie (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows pt.2) and Favorite New TV Drama (Person of Interest) won. For me that was a new record, I think I probably voted 20 or so times just so things that I didn't like didn't win- because everyone knows 20 votes goes a long way!!! =P

Now take into account the Golden Globes, personally I despised it last year and thought Ricky Gervais was incredibly mean and unfunny. Luckily he toned it down this year, making his jokes a bit less mean spirited and he was barely shown throughout the rest of the night which I enjoyed.

I was happy about most of these wins. I absolutely adore Downton Abbey and cannot wait until the rumored third season. However I wish more of the cast was there to accept the award. I just saw on a news program that Elizabeth McGovern tripped on stage but I'm going to assume that she was ok considering I didn't even notice her falling until it was brought to my attention.

 I am also really happy about Meryl Streep winning for best actress in a drama because she is an inspiration of mine and she acted like she was so surprised about recieveing the award. I keep seeing stupid people on the internet saying that she's an "ungracious and unclassy bitch" because she didn't thank Margaret Thatcher. Not once in my life have I ever seen Meryl Streep act bitchy to someone unless she is portraying a character. And not once have I ever seen her be ungracious. Then again these are the people who relate The Golden Globes to politics. But either way, how about we never diss Meryl Streep ever again unless we want to lose all of our teeth. She is atleast capable of putting on a flawless fake British accent! (take note Madonna.)

As for the other awards I really liked, Morgan Freeman is a given considering everything he is in is automatically going to be fantastic. Sidney Portier and Helen Mirren gave him the award which he was uber thankful for and gave a fantastic speech. Helen Mirren stated beforehand that she had a few glasses and wants to be in another movie with Morgan. Apparently "There's no reason Miss Daisy couldn't have been English." I swear if Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep were in a movie together it would be a hit.

Peter Dinklage won for A Game of Thrones which I must say is a great series based on the novels by George R.R. Martin which are great as well. His acceptance speech was unrehearsed but he get's points for mentioning Martin Henderson who was paralyzed by a dwarf tossing. =(

Kate Winslet was another one of my favorite wins despite the fact that I was rooting for both her and Elizabeth McGovern. I was a bit upset when Jessica Lange beat out Maggie Smith for American Horror Story but just because the show looks good I'm going to let it go this time. Kelsey Grammar was also very gracious during his acceptance speech and I've been a fan of his since Frasier.

The Artist won three awards and I now feel strongly obligated to go to the movie theater and see a silent film in 2012. The rest of the awards I could really care less about.

Now for the fashion at the Golden Globes, Nicole Kidman hands down get's best dressed for me, wearing Versace.

People keep saying Evan Rachel Wood is one of the worst dressed but at the before the awards she told everyone she loved her gown by Gucci and because of that confidence I love it too.


Emma Stone seemed to love her Lanvin dress as well. If you love your dress and don't care what people say about it, you get props.
Elle Macpherson's gown was terrible in every way and when she was presenting it looked like she was having trouble walking in it.

However to me, Lea Michele had to be the worst dressed of the night.

That's pretty much it. Hopefully next year's Golden Globes will be just as good, if not better.
