So, growing up is pretty complicated. I can't really stress that enough, and maybe some people out there that are possibly even older than me that really wouldn't relate. But I can say that I've grown up fast. And not in the way that you picture a 17 year old to be grown up, but I mean my life, my state of mind, and the ideas of the path I want to take have matured to the point that I see a lot of nearly 30 year olds struggling to get to. And it hasn't been easy.
1) My April break really consisted of me sitting on my ass and watching 43 episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist on Netflix instant play. All my (3) friends were busy, and I was too lazy to call them to figure out a plan. I did venture outside a couple times, but they were mostly to walk the dog and visit my grampa in the hospital. I did buy new nerdy glasses frames, and they should be ready in a week. But yeah; I actually did SO MUCH NOTHING that I'm surprised I haven't developed a…
So my sister and I car pool once a week to the train station to get to school, though I only have one lab on said wednsdays I stay the extra time (i.e. the extra 8&1/2 hours until her class is finished at 8:30pm) to study. Well today is the OFFICIAL last day of classes before finals. I only had a lab practical and now, being in the end of semester stint of laziness, I am not studying but complaining about boredom. I am currently sitting in a computer lab watching youtube and stalking fb… Continue

Today is the last performance of God's Favorite. I have mixed feelings about it ending. It was really fun to do, but it's also good to not worry about it anymore. It's half and half for me.
Tomorrow, the bells are playing. This means getting up earlier tomorrow. The main problem with this is the fact that the cast party for God's Favorite, so I'll be up later than usual (though not as late as I was up last night, but still. However, I like playing with the bells so that…
I'm going to do something unusual today. I'm going to do this whole blog without editing. That way, you can see how many mistakes I make in a daily blog. On a daily blog. Yeah.
In other news, I'm cir currently in rehearsa; reheasal rehearsal (got it!) for God's Favorite. As such, I am writing this blog without my glasses. That makes thig things fun. We open this Thrusday. Or Thursday. I'm sure we;kk we'll be w…
It is currently 11:30 in the afternoon and I have 64% of my battery left. Let's write a blog!
So, my week is almost over and I am quite excited about that. Very soon I shall be on my way back home where I can relax and see friends. But first, I need to get through today. I have a grand total of 5 classes left. I also have choirs tonight (that is, bell and church choir), though that's actually something to look forward to.
On my Youtube channel, I recently reached what I think is an impressive milestone, 100 subscribers. While it's not as impressive as some numbers on the 'tubes, it is a number I've yet to reach until now. So, to thank all of my Youtube viewers, I made the following:
To thank those 100+ wonderful people, I decided to show my karaoke session from VidCon.

Today, I'm going to tell you about an interesting experience involving a play, three actors, a piece of furniture, and said piece of furniture breaking.
It was during Miracle Worker. There was one scene where Anne Sullivan is in her room with Helen, trying to get her to spell doll using sign language. Helen is reluctant to do so. At this point in the scene, James Keller was also in the room. For those who may not remember when I talked about this play a few days ago, the…
Sorry I haven't been writing much lately; I could lie and say I've been really busy, but really I've just been feeling rather tired. I had spring break this month, it was march 8th-12th, and I didn't do anything. I didn't even leave the house. The only cool thing that happened was I got left home alone and I made chocolates. Some were flavored with Kool-aid powder and some with Instant coffee. They tasted awesome, and I made more yesterday. Those ones had coconut…
So last night while I was watching Robin Hood on BBC America they had this commercial for Torchwood, one of the ones that features an actor. And it was Eve Myles as Gwen, running around and shooting things and saying in her fantastic accent, "I CATCH ALIENS."
It was pretty cool.
So guess what.
I am in a good mood, more so than I have been in AGES.
And do you want to know why? Of course you do. Or you don't, but you're going to find out if… Continue
Hello! Manda here....I have a question for the nerd fighters out there. My friend just got through a REALLY nasty break up(he broke up with her through a friend,on aim,and used the "I can't have a girlfriend right now" excuse...three strikes much?) and I was wondering where teenage nerd fighters hang out during their spare time. I wanted to have a little post-break up fun and hit on other single teens(14-17 perferably). If there are any particular places near the Pittsburgh area you know,… Continue

Hahaha, spring break! It's 10 am and I'm still in my PJs!
Ohh, the wonders of a vacation that has just started. Anything could happen at this point. Knowing my life, nothing exciting will happen (maybe I'll break my leg or something...).
But I do get to go to New York City next Friday! My mom, sister and I are going to see the Moth on Friday night and then some whatever-we-can-get-half-price-tickets-for broadway show on Saturday afternoon!
First day!!!! WOOT!!!!!!!!!!! I Had some problems getting the profile right, but now it seems okay.
Nothing really to say. Today is the first real day of my spring break. PARTY! Yesterday I had to stay home because I was sick *blahhhh*. Then that night I was feeling better *awsome*, and I got to go to NYC. New York is really the only place you can live a half way decent life. I went to Carmines, which wasn't that good acctually (if you want good Italian, go to Dominics in the… Continue

Hi to all my Nerd Fighter friends!!! I have had a challenge put out to me by my boss and I am contemplating on how to go forward with it...What do you think of this idea?
Starting next year we are going to be putting together funding circles, which will be a group of 15-20 people who will give a certain amount of money each year for three years. ALL the money that comes from the circles will go to buying raw cashews for the processing schools in Guinea Bissau and Senegal. The cool… Continue
When I first decided I had no choice but to take some time off between getting my BA and going on to some form of graduate studies, it took a lot for me to accept the fact that it would most likely need to be not one but two years because of timing issues. There are two kinds of programs that interest me, and each requires its own standardized test in order to apply to programs that offer the degrees. Law, which results in a J.D. (juris doctor) requires me to take the L.S.A.T. (law school… Continue
