Quite a lot has happened today. There was an art fair downtown, which displayed some extremely fine paintings, sculptures, and more (and provided free soda), managed to work some, and watched Shakespeare In Love, a movie that I adore. However, I think the most important happening today was the distress call of a friend badly in need of romantic advice. I would like to state at the outset that I am usually called upon as a confidante and therapist for many of my friends, so this is not totally unexpected nor surprising. It took over half an hour to set things straight (or at least on a steadier course), and gave me time to consider my own love life. Or rather, lack thereof. I often counsel my close friends in these matters, and yet I seem not to able to maintain (or start, for that matter) a relationship of my own. I cry during movies, I'm a hopeless romantic, and yet just can't tell myself were to begin.It's not that I have a problem talking to girls; on the contrary, the vast majority of my friends are girls. (I would like to mention here a: my extreme objection to the terms "weaker" and "gentler" when referring to the female gender. In my experience, they tend to be anything but weak and much less gentle than my male cohorts and I. And b: I in no way mean to exclude male prospects, but none have been revealed to me as of yet.) I just seem to make friends, and I get too scared to risk that prior relationship in taking the next step. Of course, rationally thinking, I am only 15, and I'm not working against a deadline or something. All the same, that doesn't stop me from wishing life were more like a John Hughes movie. Thank you for bearing with me through this post. I realize this won't mean squat to most of y'all reading this, but gosh darn it, it's my blog and I can fill it with all the messed-up teenage emotions I want.

The last few days I've been going to the beach to hang out with my fellow homeshoolers. As a result of extremely cold water and extremely hot sun, I am extremely tired and braindead. I've started prepping for next year's drama group, the last performance of which i filmed awhile back. In my fantasy world, we'd perform things like Clerks and Rent and Moulin Rouge, but barely any of us can sing properly, and besidees most of the audience are parents and grandparents, so those ideas get shelled pretty directly. More realistically speaking, I would like The Philadelphia Story, Little women, and for something Shakespearian, maybe Much Ado About Nothing, or maybe the Comedy of Errors. To close up this post, I'd try to qoute Puck at the end of Midsummer Night's Dream but I can't remember it and I'm too lazy to go upstairs and get it. So, goodnight.

Yes, I know I haven't posted anything for a week, but I've been busy doing three important thing: Working, Hanging out/partying with my friends, and recuperating from both. For lack of a better topic, I'm going to rave about the album I picked up yesterday: Rock Steady by the band No Doubt. The style of sound on this album ranges from pop (Platinum Blonde Life, Don't Let Me Down) to reggae (Start The Fire, Underneath It All, Rock Steady) to a sort of R & B (Hey Baby, Hella Good, Waiting Room), but throughout all of it there is a distinctive feel to it that keeps the No Doubt-ness of the album. And It is just plain fun to listen to and move to. And I realize as I finish this that this post won't mean much to anyone who isn't a music critic, either amateur or professional, or a fan of the music, but I don't really care.
