Planned and Unplanned

Last week, I took two breaks. One planned: Spring Break; The other unplanned: A blogging break. It's been a while since I've gone a whole week without posting, so it feels a little strange. But, since I've been making a habit of doing my little "catch up" posts lately, I figured it would be okay if I just did another one of those today.

My spring break was GREAT! It all started when I saw Viewmont High School's production of CATS. Let me just say that I was thoroughly impressed. To be honest, I was not looking forward to it much, I mean, the show is weird. It can't be denied. But I thought Ms. McGuire and those kids (am I old enough to call them kids now?) did a fantastic job.

The rest of the break was spent working (only for 2 days though, woohoo!), playing with my family, finding my summer job (I'm doomed to be a janitor. Boo.), 2 trips to the dentist, 1 trip to the doctor, and 3 trips to the mall. I bought a lot of fun things that I'm really excited about! (I should probably try to get over this shopaholic business though...)

I also spent 6 hours of my Friday watching the Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth. It's such a beautiful story. I love it. And I love the way they talk!! I wish people still talked that way. For example,
"...My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." - Mr. Darcy.
Although this is the point when he very arrogantly confesses his feelings (though he tried to be rid of them and it's much against his better judgement) for Elizabeth, I still love the way he put his sentiments into words. The elegance and beauty of the way their words are strung together strikes me every time.

Also, over the break, I had some very strange dreams. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say Donny Osmond, Michael Jackson (the black version), my old choir teacher, and various other random people frequented my dreams over the break. And don't ask my why, cause I couldn't tell you.

As for being back in Logan, I have some mixed feelings. I was excited to come back, yet dreading the thought of being thrust back into the real world. Thank goodness today I didn't get any homework, but I'm sure that will all change soon enough.

Woohoo for Spring Break! And for the Spring season finally being here! At least, I think it is! I mean, I no longer feel the need to wear my boots, gloves, or coat! Let's hope it stays that way.

Don't you just wish we could find men like Mr. Darcy? Sigh...I love him. Cats was so impressive, much better than I thought it would be! It was so fun to see you there! :) And I'm so happy you had a fabulous break. Love ya!
