1:34 am - Has it been over a year? Or just a year?
I want to update before the end of the year.

I'm watching Soap, and there was a murder. A bumbling cop announced everyone who was a suspect, which was everyone in the Tate and Campbell family, one at a time. He announced that Benson, the butler, was a suspect and gave the reasons as, "well, one, he's black," to which Benson replied "That's fair." I lolled.

I live in NYC now. Just finished my first (terrible) show. Second one opens and closes next week. I have a few potential auditions this week, if I can get out of work. I work at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company as a hostess. And I pass out flyers at TKTS and around Times Square promoting Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson (so good) and A Life in the Theatre (not so good.) I live with Brian, who's visiting WV for Thanksgiving because he has a life. We're both in an acting class with Joan Rosenfels, which I love.

This week I spent absolutely too much money. Starting tomorrow I'm going to stop spending so much on food. I need to live within my means, because I think I'll be able to support myself completely if I work at budgeting. But yawn, budgeting, amirite?

Trying to learn how to live my life.

Missing John Lennon.

Remember LiveJournal?

Thanksgiving break has been odd. Very nostalgic. Kinda weird. Pretty sad at times. Happy, too, though. I didn't have much friend-time, besides with Joe. I don't know what I want to say about it. It's weird to get away from school. It's so easy at school to forget about everything else and to seclude yourself into a little world - in fact, it's nearly impossible not to do so. So I guess coming home and not having to work every day all day (granted, I should be doing more work than I have...) allows me to reflect - sometimes on things I don't want to reflect on. It even just allows me to think on things I don't think I want to think on. I think. It allows me to remember how things were a few years ago and makes me wonder where some friendships have gone. It makes me wonder if I've made right decisions or if things I feel are really how I feel. It's got me allllll mixed up and I don't like it much. But it also allows me to have fun with family. And seeing Joe was a lot of fun. I guess I should be grateful for the life I've lived and experienced. For the friendships I've had. I should be thankful for them and how they've shaped who I am, yeah? Things in life are just so transient. It moves so fast and you have to make such quick decisions that change your life more than you know. And my frontal lobe isn't even fully developed yet. I shouldn't be allowed to make decisions of such magnitude. But every decision is of such magnitude - just make decisions for me. It's almost my birthday.

I love my friends. I love the ones I have now. I love the ones I've had before. I love the ones who I had before and still have now. What would I do without them? Find new ones, probably, and still be happy. It's something I learned this summer: we can go anywhere, in any situation, and find people to be happy with. We can go somewhere for six weeks, and leave with new best friends. It's heartbreaking in a way, though, because everything is so transient. It's happy, too, though, because happiness has been brought into your life. I just wish I could live twenty different lives - devote each one to a different group of people, a different way of living, a different location, a different occupation. But I can't. So how do I reconcile this with having one life?

That's that. I'm not going to talk about too sad things. Remember Livejournal?

Happy 2009!!!!!!!

You thought 2009 was going to be livejournal-free, didn't you, Maggie_Mae128.  Wrong-o.

Let's see.  This semester's fun so far.  But I'm sickies.  Matt comes home in two months and four days.  22 months ago he entered the MTC.  Weeeeeird.  That's all I ever say about it.  Semester's busy.  Auditions in Birmingham, auditions in North Carolina, Urinetown the Musical, studio scenes and monologues...but so fun!  I hope this sick crap goes away, though.

Today I walked back inside the CAC after saying hi and goodbye to Geoffrey Insch, who's going on a mission to JAPAN!  Crazy.  Phil came out and I said, "hello, Phil." and he glared back at me and said, "hello, Taylor, how are you?" and I said, "well, I was fine until you gave me that stink eye!" which made Dreamboat laugh.  Then he looked at me (yes, he looked at me!) and said, "don't worry, it's just his computer."  Siiiiiiiigh.  I told Brittany I was going to write it in my diary, and this is the closest thing, at the moment.


What else do I want to remember right now?  I write songs a lot!  With my friends, Matt (Webster) and Brian.  I'm so excited for Matt (Boy-of-Choice) to come home and come visit and play music with us.  I think that will be the best thing ever.  I hope he visits me.

"Life can be painless, provided that there is sufficient peacefulness for a dozen or so rituals to be repeated simply endlessly."
 - Kurt Vonnegut

And that is what my life is!  Same classes, same friends, same social activities, same sayings: For to, you knew, I'm mad, oup, OMP, The Home Alones, Al Sharpton, My father always told me..., Concessor talks, sip sip, ject ject, Dove Under-Arm Unscented Body Spray (It's basically water - but we'll throw it in for free - as long as you buy the bottle...), Into the Woods game, coloring game, and so on...

And then I come home to a wonderful house full of wonderful people who I wonderfully love.  I'll miss it.  Because I don't feel overwhelmed - I have my room.  And if I'm lonely - I have downstairs which always has at least Texas, you know?  And Emma's bed.  I'm going to go steal a blanket. 



Ok.  See, it's worth it to have a livejournal still.  Right?

I had a funny dream last night about Matt. I guess somehow I had a time machine but instead of traveling through time it just traveled. But it was a time machine because I had to do the thing with the lightning and the clock tower. Anyhow, I went to Argentina with a few other people - Leah Zeller, Matt's mom, My mom, and a few others I think. We all went our own ways. I met Matt and we'd talk but we'd keep in mind all the rules and try to follow them. We tried not to be alone together - I don't know, it was just really funny. But really nice, even though we had to be very careful. I talked to him. And just hearing his voice talk only to me was the strangest and most wonderful experience ever! And I told him that and he said, "oh, I probably shouldn't be talking only to you." or something. Ha. Oh well.

Anyhow, I get to talk to him on Christmas!!!! That's two weeks! Yay. And I got into Urinetown: The Musical, and that goes up April 17th or so, and guess who'll be back then? You guessed right, if you guessed at all, and correctly. Matt! And I get to go to Florida later this month. And I get to do a play in a day in January. And I get to go to Birmingham, AL for SETC auditions in March and have an entire rehearsal process with a bunch of my best friends and - these months are going to fly by, even if I don't want them to. And then Matt will be back and then things will get really really scary. And I'm open for whatever will happen, and I've loved the past almost two years, but I'm still excited to be out of this state of limbo.

Joy, though. Joy.

So today I went to my step dad's dad's house for his b-day dinner. He's now 78. That's the same age as Paul Newman. Paul Newman doesn't look a day over 65, I think. Awww, it's sweet, I've known Paul Newman since he was 77. sigh.. we go way back.

I tried to give my car a hug while I was driving it. It didn't go as planned. Though there wasn't a plan. I tried to hug my car, but I turned on a bunch of signals and such - I sent my car the wrong signals. We're just friends. I tried to hug my car? and I just ended up hugging part of the dashboard. You know, the part that curves up around the wheel? It was nice. I love the Foc' I am so glad I have it back.

I'm off to bed, finally. Stupid real-classes with your stupid real-homework...

I should quit being judgmental. Ok?

I got in a play, that's good. It's going to be in the Clay, which I'm also excited about. I'm excited about this semester in general. The work's all going to be really good and fun and...yeah. Good.

Still miss Disney lots. But it's getting better and I'm seeing things more clearly now, too - church today was awesome. Really. Thankfully.

Still miss Joe lots. I'm glad I get to talk to him. I don't get to talk to him every day like I used to, but at least I always have the opportunity, as long as it's after 5 or the weekend.

Still miss Matt lots. But I'm not as good at writing as I used to be. But just a little over seven months, man. I'm nervous. People change lots in two years. Have I changed? Hey, tell me how I've changed since April '07.

That's all. Oh. And just be happy, please? Ok, THAT'S all.

Oh my GOODNESS I missed Rory so much!

And I highly appreciate a friend who remembers all the random inside jokes from summer '05. You don't find that often.

I hope he really visits this time.




Auditions = fun, actually. Callbacks = also fun. Hopefully successful, as well. We'll see.
I miss Disney like no other. Withdrawal like crazy. Kristina actually listened to most of my spiel, which was nice of her.
I dropped my phone in the toilet today. Ees ok now.

New story!

Tonight I went to Pleasure Island to Adventurer's Club and the comedy warehouse or whatever it's called with some friends from work because I'd never been. And while we were at the Adventurer's Club there was this guy in front of us talking with this woman. Then he started talking to us, so the woman turned around and when she saw me she stared at me and then gasped and said, "WE RODE YOUR BOAT!" And she turned to her friends/family and said, "guys, look, it's Taylor!!" and she gave me a hug and they talked about how great I was. I'm famous.

Work work work. Work was fun. I like work. Today at work? Huge rain storms. We went 101 while I was out on the river, so when I came back in, I let my people go, then I drove the boat back into maintenance and had to put tarp things up and do a bunch of stuff so I got sooooooaked. Then we played Disney Trivia with the people stuck waiting in line. My morning boats were really really good. I drove my first boat 6 times before getting out - that's over an hour of just doing boat trips. But it's so FUN. If only I could stop losing my voice?
It feels so good to be able to talk to Joe all the time now.
I am going to see a movie with Bobby. Bye!


Also.
I'll try to remember the creepy things people say to me. Or do. Or the funny ones. I really should write them down.
-ok I was at merge and this five year old just walked past me and calmly threw his mickey toy in the river. So deliberately. It was funny.
-umm an older woman said her name was Taylor so we must be related. She told her husband and he said I was beautiful so I must be related to him. Then he went on telling me how pretty I was and asked if I was thirty. I gasped and said I was only 20 and he said, "Well I thought it would take at least 30 years to get that beautiful!"

I can't remember any other specifics right now. But they're all wild. Also, who commented? Show yourself.

BlehBlahBleeBloop.

I went with Dad to the ESPN club today. While in the area, I went to MGM, rode a few rides (Tower of Terror twice) then went to Epcot and saw the British Invasion. That's about it, but it was fun. I don't have much to write about. I miss Joe soooo much. I missed four calls on Saturday because my phone was dead. That's so ridiculously upsetting, but whatever. I'll be able to talk to him next weekend, hopefully. I'm happy because I work tomorrow. Ummm, and that's about it? Robbie called me today, because it's been fifteen minutes since he called last week. Oh, and today was the first time I went on Tower of Terror since SPRING BREAK OH SIX!!! Ok, bed. Sorry this was lame-uh.

Sometimes I get into a terrible terrible mood and can't get out. And I feel such guilt for making other people deal with me which just makes things worse. Then I don't know how to get out of those moods. Or, if I do, I don't do it because either I'm lazy or it's too daunting or some other excuse, and I don't. And it seems that nothing is going my way. And it feels like I'll never get out of that mood and I want to be self destructive and think maybe everything I think is wrong and maybe nothing's right.

But I need to realize that I have so many blessings. And more than two people to talk to. I talked to my parents today about a lot of stuff. And it was really really neat. I'm glad I did and it helped a lot. I get to work at Disney, even if it's not as much as I want. I get to spend time with family. I get to go to California. And hey, next year? I'm going to visit Jorday in New York, ok? And have fun, ok? And I have my whole life ahead of me? And I shouldn't get so freaked out over things.

And I'll be able to talk to Joe next weekend.

9:01 pm - Yipes.
Hey, I loooooove working at Disney.

What if I just stayed, guys? And just didn't do Studio? Would that be ok?

Also:

"Then we had to take off the hood and gas mask and do jumping jacks and stuff with a ton of TEAR GAS going off. So I couldn't open my eyes or stop coughing or anything. It hurt so so so much. But it was awesome at the same time."

haha

"Also, I wont see Shannon for almost a year I realized. Sucks :/"

das for you, Shayno.



I also got another letter the other day that had been lost in the mail and rained on and such. No bite out of it, though. Dumb US postal service. Awww, waaaaaahhhh we have a bajillion letters a day waaaaaaahhhh. Anyhow, this is from that:

"I would never die for any entity such as country, group, etc. ... But I think (because I guess you can't really know exactly what you would do in some situations) that I wouldn't have a problem putting myself in a dangerous situation in order to keep safe another person. No doubt anyone I know or care about. ... once I get done with all my training I'm gonna volunteer to be on the first tour sent out. THAT MEANS that every 16-18 months, I would spend between 60-120 days deployed. ... Well I gotta write my mom! I love you and I'll call you soon. answer your g*dd*mn phone next time."



Ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

10:08 pm - I always miss the first call. I guess it's trad now.
No Matt email. And I missed Joe's call because I got to my phone 2 seconds too late. Suxx. So much.

But -at least he called? And this is only the second time there's been no Matt email - the first time he was incredibly sick and passed out. So I shouldn't be worried.
