WHAT'D I MISS???? Why I Disappeared, Life Updates, and Gifs Galore

I’M BAAAAAACK!!


Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent from the blogger world lately. I know I know I have failed please forgive me. Aside from a few posts going up, I’ve been nowhere to be found. SO WHAT HAPPENED? Was I kidnapped by aliens and forced off of social media? Did my computer die and I lost not only wifi but my mind??

.....nah.

It's much less dramatic than that, actually. From the eighth until Sunday, I was in the glorious Sunshine State- Florida.

Guys, I want to move there.

It was fabulous. We spent most of our time in Disney, because I have a family full of Disney nerds. We all love it, so take us to a castle and we are very happy people. Prepare in advance- the photo spam is coming. Because even in Disney, you gotta #doitfortheaesthetic. At one point my Dad turned to me as I was frantically snapping at a sunset, and he's like, "You take photos of everything! You'd take photos of a cup if you thought that it was 'aesthetic'."

Yes, Dad. Yes, I would.

(I actually have multiple photos of cups from this trip, now that I think about it. Huh.)

My family started asking me if I wanted a photo before we ate anything. XD It was great.

Gosh, I'm rambling. Moving on.

Anyways, as a result of this, I’ve gotten SUPER behind. On, like, everything. Blogging, social media, LIFE IN GENERAL. It’s grand. So I’m currently working on catching up on ALL of your lovely blog posts, comments, and various posts on Instagram and Twitter. I’m slightly exhausted just thinking about it. I started scrolling through my Blogger feed to see where I have to start, and it's crazy. BUT I'll DO IT! I'm determined to read all of your lovely posts. 

If you've sent me a message, or I said that I would get back to you and I didn't- I'm so sorry! I've been trying my hardest to keep track of everything, but something might have slipped through the cracks. Please send me a message or leave a comment reminding me!! If I've forgotten to do something for you, it's not intentional, I promise. 

So tell me- WHAT’D I MISS??

Would I be me if I didn't include a Hamilton gif?
I really want to catch up as quickly as possible. So, catch me up! Leave me links! I WANT TO HEAR ALL ABOUT YOUR LOVELY LIVES. I feel like I've missed so much, so please- help a girl out!

In other life-y news, the auditions for my school’s musical (Music Man) were yesterday- basically the most important audition all year.

No pressure or anything.

It was a long day. I ended up changing my monologue at 7 yesterday morning, and literally spent at least two class periods trying to memorize it. I still can't remember what my English homework it. (Probably should check that.)

For all the fellow theatre nerds who are curious, I did Emily's monologue to George from Our Town, and sang the first part of Burn from Hamilton. I really liked both of the pieces a lot, even though it's basically the most stressful thing ever. I was absolutely convinced that I would forget the monologue, or crack on a note or something. 

BUT...it actually went fairly well:) I wasn't perfect in my audition by far, but I didn't horribly bomb and..I actually got a callback! It was my first-ever callback, and I was beyond excited. Like, pretty sure I could have just started crying on the spot haha. XD My friends tackle-hugged me, and I was freaking out. Anyways, I ended up getting to read for Zaneeta at callbacks. I won't know if I got the role or not for several days, but I'm just glad that I got the opportunity to try. Whatever happens, happens. :)

Anyways, enough about me- tell me about YOU! HOW'S LIFE? WHAT'S NEW? WHAT HAVE I MISSED? LET'S CHAT!

    1. It was very fun! I think I'm meant to live in Florida- the weather is perfect. XD EEP THANK YOU!!! I'll definitely let you all know very soon ;)

  2. YAY welcome back!!!! I really want to visit Disney (or even Florida!) sometime, but I think it would be more fun in December, when it is not like an inferno of heat. haha

    I need to start taking more pictures!! I would love to get a smartphone soon so that I don't have to lug a big camera around, because that is usually my reason for not taking any pictures. :p

    1. It definitely would be a lot more comfortable in December. The heat wasn't HORRIBLE while we were there, but it was pretty harsh a couple of days. I can't imagine going in July. O.O

      Having a phone with a good camera helps SO much! It's a lot easier:)

  3. Disney? And you didn't sneak me in your suitcase? Lol, just kidding!

    Can't wait to see more pics! :)

    With love and all joy,

  4. Congrats on the callback! HAMILTON! And I'm very similar. Except in situations where I feel that my need for the aesthetic is just a little disrespectful to act on(for example when I visited ground zero where the twin towers fell), I'm always snapping the artsiest pics I can manage.

    1. Thank you!! Yeah, there are definitely some situations in which it just isn't appropriate to take photos, but the majority of the time I'm constantly snapping away:)

    1. I actually have never read it, but I loved that monologue so much that I'm going to read the whole thing soon! Thank you so much!!

      Haha, I did! :)

      The cat gif is seriously making me so happy XD ♥

  6. YAY YOU'RE BACK I was kind of wondering where you were comment-wise but I didn't want to be that one person that's sending you annoying Pinterest messages (although, I kind of already am) all like "where are you and why did you leave"

    DISNEY IS MY FAVORITE. But so expensive and crowded if you go during the wrong times. I've heard September is an awesome time for going tho. My choir is planning on touring and going to Disney in LA this year

    1. I'M BACK! SORRY ABOUT THAT! I felt really bad not being able to keep up with everything. (Although I was kind of like 'I wonder if they actually know I'm gone" XD) YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MESSAGED ME YOU'RE NOT ANNOYING! I love talking to you! :)

      September is definitely one of the best times to go. It's warm, but it's not HORRIBLY hot, and the crowds are manageable for the most part. Ooh, really? That's so much fun!!! :)

  7. WELL HELLO! The food and picture thing is something my family does too, they'll ask if i want a photo before they ruin and prettiness with the fork.

    1. HELLO!!!!! ♥ It's so sweet when they do that!

      I loved reading about your college experience! I'm so glad it's going well for you:)

  8. Ok I hate the play Our Town but I think I know the monologue you're talking about...the one where she says goodbye to Grovers Corner as she goes to her grave? ASDFGHJKL; IT'S SUCH A SAD MONOLOGUE!!!!! In fact, I think I've done that one before. But I do so many so I honestly have no idea XD

    Also, you need to post the pic of you and Piglet on here ;)

    I love youuuuu and I'm glad you're backkkkk and CONGRATULATIONS ON CALL BACKS! eeeeeeeee!!!!!!

    1. No, it's actually not that one. It's the one where she's talking to George, saying that she used to like him but now he's a terrible person. XD

      I shall ;)

      EEP I LOVE YOU THANK YOUUUU! ♥♥♥

  9. Dude, I feel you! It's not even funny how far behind I am on everything. But hey-Disney would be so worth it! I hope you get the role! Sounds like you did fantastic!

  10. GRACE ANNE. When you quoted your dad I laughed out loud!! That's exactly something my dad would say, and that's exactly something I would do!!

    Also, I LOVE MUSIC MAN ;)) If you get a part (if that's even the right wording?? I have no theater experience so...)I am SO gonna find a way to come see your play. I hope you had the greatest time in Disney!!

    1. XD YOU GET ME!

      Oh my gosh, I WOULD ABSOLUTELY DIE IF YOU CAME. Like, I'd probably just start bawling. SO YOU SHOULD TOTALLY COME! (And yes it's the right wording:) ) Thank you!

  11. Grace, if you think you are behind... I've been so absent for the past month. I know I can't completely catch up, but I'm working that way too. It wouldn't been easier tonight if I hadn't watched three episodes of New Girl...

    DISNEY WORLD!!!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE DISNEY AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PICTURE OVERLOAD!!! (fun news, I think I'm going this spring.)

    And you haven't missed much from me. School and editing and ballet and church and BCM and family and catching a breath keep me busy. A post went up today, though, featuring a Wicked shirt!

    1. New Girl is always worth it though;)

      I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE PHOTO OVERLOAD EITHER! Oh my goodness, really??? That's so exciting!!! :) ♥♥

      I loved the post- and the shirt! Wicked will forever be my favorite:) It sounds like you've been exceptionally busy, but I hope things are going well for you:) ♥
