"Make up your mind you have stories to tell...

Then make up you mind to be well." I have. (Lyrics by Brian Yorkey)

I don't see that much use for the writing I did here, so this will mostly be a place for following. I've moved to Blogger, where I'm aiming for writing that's a little more creative, thoughtful, and hopefully a bit more poetic. I might pop on once in a blue moon to write. If you're interested in what I have to say, here's the URL:

To be truthful: this was inspired by a longer, prose piece I wrote in April. I may post later, for reference. Read more...Collapse )

Quote that made me tear up
redstar402

"You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it. I've seen centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan, is... I think I love you. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine." 

I adored Stardust and, make fun of me if you must, cried during it. What a perfectly lovely fantasy-romance. And how she glowed when she was with him, lovvvvvvvvvvved it. And it poked fun at itself, allowing its own cheesiness.

B.A. in English/What is the world going to be?

I friended an optimistic quotes community on livejournal.  This popped (not pooped as I originally typed) up yesterday, my graduation day.  How perfect is it?!? We only part to meet again. / Change, as ye list, ye winds; my heart shall be / The faithful compass that still points to thee.-John Gay

So yes, I have a Bachelor's of Arts from Goucher College, cum laude, with Honors in English with a minor Communications & Media Studies. It feels good-I had my nice, long sob as my mom drove away from the college. What's nice is that I have almost no regrets. I worked hard and played hard and am glad I met every, single person I came in contact with.  It's like Meg - our Commencement speaker and my roomie of 4 years - said: we can learn from everyone.  College is that highschool sweetheart you need to leave: I love you, you've been wonderful to and for me, but I need to see other places. I'll miss you, let's stay on good terms, wish you the best.

Goucher has been simply amazing for me. Not perfect, of course, but that's where the lessons lie.  I really love myself, and want that for everyone. I realize my and others fantastic, unique, beautiful individuality.  I haven't lost my optimism as I sillily (made it up) thought I might. It's just more grown-up.  Early this year at the beginning of the school, I talked to my mom about how her mom was tough. Not just strong, but tough. I said I wanted to be tough. I feel like I've gotten tough.

And I have it good for undergrad: To continue bragging but to keep readers updated: this summer I will be the development/PR intern at the DC Choral Arts Society and in August, I will begin my 40-week, paid internship in the Public Relations Department at CENTERSTAGE in Baltimore.  And they're housing me.

So thank you, everyone. I'm so glad to have met you and that leaves no exceptions.  Goucher kids: Goucher's beautiful but let's the try and bring that beauty to wherever we go (A tip from my counselor) :-)

Attention everyone!

from my internship supervisor.

"Hi Sarah,
 
I hope your gearing up for your time with us hear at Arena. I know I am getting ready for you, considering the season intern's last day was today. Eeek -- what will I do!?
 
So I a couple things I wanted to go ahead and let you know about....

The second thing is that June 5th we will have a photo run for our upcoming production of The Mystery of Irma Vep (like the Miller run you saw). I'd love for you to be there for that as well, so if you are not booked yet that night, please mark your calendar."

So, what is The Mystery of Irma Vep and who is in it, you may ask? OK so you probably won't ask.  Well, the website says..

"Charles Ludlam’s hilarious Obie Award winner gleefully ransacks literary, cinematic and pop culture as it satirizes everything from Hitchcock’s Rebecca and Victorian Melodrama to The Mummy's Curse, the Brontës and Shakespeare...With dozens of lightning-fast changes, Brad Oscar (Tony-nominated on Broadway for The Producers) and J. Fred Shiffman (She Loves Me, Cabaret) portray all the characters men, women and monsters – in a gender-bending tour-de-farce"

Brad Oscar was the original Franz Liebkind (the Nazi playwright) and eventually went on to play Bialystrock.  Oh my god, you guys...and I'm getting some money for this? Well, shit, if this isn't just heavenly...and what's more exciting is that in some years, I feel I could be really damn good at what my supervisor (her title is Media Relations Manager)
 
:-D

For my own sake, boring for you
