Adventure in Babysitting/Going Home

I am going home for Thanksgiving tomorrow afternoon.
I can't wait.

yesterday i babysat for the Blondells. Now as soon as i could get the boys to agree on a plan of activities, we took off on their bikes. we were heading to campus and there is big hill on the way down to campus. Nicholas and William raced on ahead and went down the hill while i helped Simon make his way slowly and safely down. When i got the bottom I was shocked and scared to see William sitting on the crub crying. His bike was going too fast and it slid on piles of leaves on the side of the road and he crashed his bike. He was really shaken but it was only a few scrapes and i knew he'd be fine. so as soon as i could get Nicholas to stop talking and William to calm down we started back to the house. As soon as we got back to their house i called some of the neighboring faculty until i got someone on the phone. Luckily, Mrs. Brothers answered and came over to help calm down and clean up William. She was just what he needed, a motherly figure to help bandage his scrapes. After she left, I made the boys smoothies and very quickly they were ready to go out again and do something else. So we went to the park and played soccer until their parents got home. it was quite an adventure, but it was fun. the Blondell boys are crazy fun kids you just gotta love.

tonight i preview my car plays to Mitch. I perform Casey's at 8:20 tonight and then my group performs mine at 9.
I'm a little nervous about it. I mean i feel that both are ready, but i'm still nervous.

Amber's Senior Project

I saw Amber's senior project. It was amazing.
She blew me away. She really did a fantastic job writing, directing, and acting in her show.
It was about many universal questions about God and a young women's journey seeking love. it really moved me as i could relate to many parts personally. and it inspired me to think about my own senior project (not to come for a little while...a couple years...).

i have also recently watched the movie "Billy Elliot." Whenever i watch this movie i am obsessed with it for at least week.
I really want to dance now too. I have decided i am going to take a dance class with Vicki Finlayson next semester. I still need to tell her this and to talk about which one i should take. i also am sure that dance will somehow be a part of my senior project.

i can't wait until i can really get under way on the car play project. i can't really invest too much until the directing scenes are done on tuesday. i'm really excited about being able to have a chance at directing. i'm not sure if i'll much good at it, but i'm gonna give it my best. and i'm also really excited to be acting in Casey's car play. He is soo creatively amazing.

I went to Knott's Scary Farm. Twice!!
It was a lot of fun. I went for my first time with Hayley on a Friday night. It was a busy night and that made it really fun. I could watch as the monsters would scare group after group of people. I loved the mazes and meeting all of Hayley's friends who work there.
here are some pictures:
