Okay so...first real entry in a long while.

Well, to start off, school is going well. I've been sick a few times this semester which has put a damper on things, but I've gotten through it. I've been making a lot of friends out here, but none that I'm really close to at home. I guess it's kind of hard considering I've been so close to all of my friends at home since at least freshman year or high school.

A little rant about school:
Topic: WMU theatre department.
I am an art's management major with a focus in theatre administration and with a minor in non-profit leadership. You may want to take a breath before saying that out loud. Pretty much with that, I plan to start out in non-profit theatre development and work my way into non-profit theatre management and eventually open my own non-profit theatre. A lot of non-profit I must say, but I hope with that, I can somehow help people? I don't know how non-profit theatre can possibly help people...but with the title "non-profit", it reassures me that I AM helping people...Anyway, back to the task at hand, I attend Western Michigan University. My major is currently in the theatre department here (obviously since it's theatre administration). Arts management is a program here specifically designed for student's needs. Pretty much it means I have specific classes I need to take my freshman and sophomore year pertaining to theatre, management, and non-profit. After my sophomore year, I meet with my adviser like it's my job and we both agree on classes for the market I plan to pursue. That is one of the reasons I selected WMU's program. Another reason is when I was being interviewed, I was informed that WMU's theatre department was ranked in the top 5 of the nation...wow. That's pretty intense if I do say so myself. So, here's me: I get to WMU all excited to get involved in the department, do all of these wonderful things, and...well..you know...get some good experience. I mean, we're in the top 5....As we are five shows into the season..I sit back and I think to myself...Where is the talent here? I feel like I go to a different school. I don't see "top 5 in the nation" caliber shows here. Quite frankly, two out of our three shows have been...shit. I'm really starting to question who ranked us in the top 5 and if I am really where I need to be.

I mean don't get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for the program and I see the potential...but the finished product is not what I hear it should be. The faculty is amazing, our tech program is phenomenal but our productions...suck.

Maybe we're having a rough start? Maybe this is normal for the first semester? I just don't know and I'm extremely worried. I guess the only thing that I need to be worried about is getting those tickets sold and getting those seats filled. Which, not to be...big headed...but the arts management suite (spelled sweet because we're awesome) managed to sell out our first two productions (they were the good ones) which consisted of 15 shows.

Eh, maybe it'll get better next semester. But for now, I must get back to my 21 page paper that is due in...13 hours. Yea, buzz kill.

So I've decided that I should use this thing more often. I've been keeping a lot of things bottled up inside lately...and I feel that it's best to let it out somewhere. PS this song fucks me up...

So here we fall, and here we break
and all that we had, is now just a mistake.
I guess it got boring and old,
So what have you done, you left me alone

You got your things, you got them all,
You know thers nothing you wont have,
and Im afraid I dont got the cash,
to keep you happy, and Im upset,
cause you show me the ill not free, that you need big fat limosenes,
to keep you high, to keep you safe, keep you in love.

What if i change for you, then will you see me, still with you.
I 'd never do it; Im no fool.

So here we fall, and here we break
And all that we had, is now just a mistake.
You look so young, feel so misled
And your stuffy friends have gone to your head

You got your things, you got them all,
You know thers nothing you wont have,
and Im afraid I dont got the cash,
to keep you happy, and Im upset,
cause you show me the ill not free, that you need big fat limosenes,
to keep you high, to keep you safe, keep you in love.

What if i change for you, then will you see me, still with you.
I 'd never do it; Im no fool.

Honey Im not you.

I walk away, thinking back to the days, that I held you close
with your puffy white coat, and you told me joe, I could never let go
"I need you more, then life it's self", and the rain poured down
and I kept you dry, and I took the tears fallen from your eyes, and the snow came down
and I kept you warm, and I kept you safe from your daddys dorm, when he said to you
that you cant see me, "all those pools boys got nothing good to be", now they got to you,
and what do you say, you want some rich guy instead of me.

What if i change for you, then will you see me, still with you.
I 'd never do it; Im no fool.

I'm glad that people find it cool to use my livejournal as a monologue at a party and act them out in front of everyone.

Especially when they are one of your ex-boyfriends.
