"Life is a stage, and we are merely the players." I'm sure you've heard that quote at some point or another. As someone who loves performing, I can relate to this. But is your life a play worth watching?
Last Friday, I performed in my school's one-act play, Butterfly. I was the lead, and I was sooooo nervous. I was jittery for hours before the play. But time didn't slow down. I got my hair and makeup done, and donned my costume. At seven, I stepped on stage, no longer an American teenager, but a Japanese geisha in the midst of World War II. I inevitably mad mistakes, and, according to my parents, the play was hard to hear (gyms have very bad acoustics). I had thought I had done well, but I still knew there were things to work on before competition.

Last night, (November 7th,2009) I whent to a Barlow Girl/ Super Chick concert with Vota playing also at Webster MA...basically funnest night EVER!
I LOVED it!! all the bands were amazing, I was freaking out when Barlow Girl came out, as they are my favorite band! lol
I hadn't heard of Vota before this concert, but before the concert I listened to them alot and watched all their podcast before the concert and I REALLY like them, they are great musicicans.
I had heard of Superchick before, and listened to them also, but never liked them as much as i do now! they are such a fun band, and have really upbeat songs, but also some nice quite songs too.
Ever since i found out i was going to this concert, I watched all their podcasts on their youtube, and listened to them like crazy, and searched them up on google and read all about them:) Their performance was SO awesome, and they also had a great message, and I could really feel the precence of God in the building.
Just cause my arms are red with blood
And have scars that will always show
Does not make me a freak
Or make me suicidal
Just cause I have scars
Don't mean you can judge me
When you don't know the other half
You have yet to give me a chance
To show you who I really am & what I have to bring
You don't know what goes on inside
The pain & hurt I feel; that's eating me alive
You don't know these things because I cover up my feelings
Of the strife & regret that fills my life
With a mask; I wear this mask to cover the weeping from deep within
Only to make you think Im a happy-go-lucky girl
But the actual truth is far from that
But what you don't won't hurt me
Cause I know how JUDGEMENTAL you can be
I wrote this poem last night; cause I could not get this one incident out of my head it actually happened on the bus a few weeks ago.

Im an angel with broken wings
Waiting for someone to patch me back up
Hard to believe the way I've been living is so deadly
Waiting to kill; slowely and silently
Like a snake stalking it's prey
A shadow that will never go away
Just waiting for the right time to strike
The darkest time of the night
When there's no light &
you think you can't win your fight
But it's still to hard to give up
Since I've come so far
I have people that I know I can trust
But it might not be enough
I wrote this poem about a month ago. I've actually had a dream kind of about this(not really) Idk; you can tell me what you think
My dream, I was on a street corner drunk & high as can be and I was surrounded by these dark shadows. The dark shadows were coming at me, attacking me from all sides(front,back,left & right). Finally I fell to my kneens and there was a bright light. Then I woke up
