Done.

Hello everyone! First thing’s first: goodnight and goodbye…to the performing arts extensive intrusion into our life. 😉 Hey, y’all! AMEN! I took music (me too on this one!) and theater appreciation (and I might as well have taken this one with all the events I’ve been to ;)) this semester, and it meant I (we, because AJA is AMAZING) had to attend 7 (two of them got me bonus points) events between the two classes.

It was intense, with three (four if you add the non-academic event ;)) events within three days one week. I’m so thankful to have AJA and our other friends that tagged along to go with me so I didn’t have to be lonely while doing it. I don’t know what she’s talking about. I did it for the bonus points ;). Really, it was a wonderful time. Too wonderful to do justice more than simply providing you with a list of what we went and saw and came back to speak of.

 

  1. A Classical Music Concert Thing Sang by A Brilliant Man with Piercing Eyes
  2. War of the Worlds

  3. A Group of Students Performing Music Made with Drums and Percussion Instruments I Did Not Know Existed

  4. Threepenny Opera

  5. A Modern Jazz Concert That Made You Contemplate Your Existence And Long To Be  A Musician Despite Having No Musical Ability

  6. Phantom Lady

  7. That Harry Potter Thing I Didn’t Go To Or Understand The Purpose Of But–Ooh! Pretty Orchestra Music!

  8. A Christmas Story

Ahem. All of this to say: WE ARE DONE, KIDDOS! WE ARE OUT! WE ARE FREE! THE END. Just two more weeks until the semester dies! Truuuuue, and then it’s winter break and we have all sorts of fun stuff planned to do. It will be WONDERFUL.

Later, y’all. Drive safely. ❤
Keep your bows moving and your costumes changing! ❤ 😉 😛 O.o 🙂 😀

Check the Wondertasks – January 7, 2017

Hey, y’all! Hello! (First thing first, I’d like to congratulate you for making it a full week into the new year. Amen. I hope it’s going well for you. Now…)

 

At the beginning of winter, we made a list of things that we planned to accomplish before winter (or at least our winter semester break) ended. We have the list, and were going to analyze which ones we did or didn’t complete. (Spoiler alert: things got done.)

 

Below is our original list of things we intended to do. To the right of each item, in all caps we will inform you of which things were done.

  1. Decorate a tiny Christmas tree that may or may not be alive. (DONE – and if you haven’t seen it, check out our December 24, 2016 post 😉 )
  2. Bake all the things! (seasonal and unseasonal) (DONE, though we don’t quite have cookies out our ears, we discovered cookie butter AKA MAGIC IN A JAR)
  3. Meet up with old friends, and eat lunch, and get all the coffees!!! (DONE – we even did this three times over #) )
  4. Make a million and two words. (Okay, not quite literally, but either or both of us writing large chunks on our current writing projects over our winter break is definitely a goal!) (DONE, I wish it wasn’t too much work to add up the actual amount because it was a lot (a grand total of: 51,265 to be specific))
  5. Ice skating with my younger brother who will probably make us look like baby giraffes because he is naturally that balanced and coordinated sometimes. (DONE – this was a TON of fun, even if ACG had to be a responsible driver and not break her ankle and I may or may not have accidentally danced circles with said little brother. (Good news: no injuries occurred.))
  6. See the anthropomorphic movie Sing at some point between now and January 8. Yesssss!!! (sorry to cut into her point but YES (It’s actually ACG’s idea, but I’m on board… We saw Moana this past Thursday, so it’s her turn) (DONE, The movie was actually more sad than it looked in previews, but it was great along with Moana)
  7. Wear flip flops as many days of December as possible, because why not? (DONE – Ha! ACG did wear flip flops. Granted, this is the first weekend it’s been below freezing here, I think @) Sighs @ Alabama. )
  8. Wear sweaters as many days of southern December as possible, because why don’t we have normal seasons? (DONE, Even I wore a sweater at least two times, so I consider this a huge success)
  9. Spend as many days as possible with your Best Friend before the c-word rears itself again. (DONE – even if it was not as much time as I wish we could have, the time we got to spend together was amazing and I feel so, so lucky. Same, it was wonderful.)

If you were keeping track, there should be one teeny tiny detail that is standing out to you. WE DID ALL THE THINGS! We did, and I am a little proud of that fact.

 

There you have it. Until next time, keep your lists on the inside of the bucket and your chicken fingers in the cage. 😉 😀 🙂 😛 O.o ❤ 😉 😀

 

It’s bitter out there (and also cold! ha…haha) so don’t forget to drive safely during the potential icy season and be kind! ❤

Rockabye Lullaby

Hi! Hey, y’all! So, most people that are in school are out for summer break right now. Of course, there are some crazy humans who take summer classes, but we’re talking about most people.  For most people who are still in school, summer is a time of freedom. Even those with jobs, often are only working part time. This freedom makes it a little easy to get out of routine. All kinds of adventures happen, but one thing tends to be common with everyone: sleep schedules turn a 180.

That is exactly what has happened to the two of us. We were going to be responsible humans and try to keep some semblance of good sleep like the baby-adults that we are.

That lasted until about the beginning of this week (maybe seven weeks? give or take a few days). For vaguely concerning random pain, I was given a steroid injection, which I’d like to blame most of our lack of rest for. Since, you know, ACG and I are attached at the brain apparently. #) Of course we are. Friends that don’t-sleep together stay together. 😉 I wasn’t given a steroid shot, but I was still up, because, well, AJA and I are tight, and why not stay up for most of the dark hours together?

Really, though, for reasons other than being baby-adults we are going to try to get back on schedule, because we also like seeing each other during the daytime, too. True. And that’s sometimes a little hard to do on a continual three to five hours of sleep. Yeah, that’s not a long term functional process for anyone.

So, to everyone who is partying all night and sleeping all day, enjoy it. One day you’ll have to be more grown-up, do things during the day, and sometimes stay up too late for the occasional party. If you’re one of the ones who’s never stayed up all night at least once a week on any given summer, please try it sometime. It’s a great time (great might be a stretch, unless the company is right forgot that modifier, whoops).  

 

Keep your pillows in the garden and your sheep in the kitchen! 🙂 ❤ 😀 😉 😛 O.o

Drive safely, which can only really be done on a proper amount of sleep. 😉 ❤

Tradition Runs Deep

Tradition. Rich, deep, and all encompassing.

 

Hey, y’all! Hopefully last night was the start of a new tradition (we can already say it was the celebration of a very old one–98 years to be exact!)  for at least the next few years. I hope to continue past that, but ACG can ditch if she’d like. 😉 Thank you very much, few is not specific. I plan to hang around.

 

It was great and a ton of fun. The music was great and so were the costumes. The nuns and the witch were the best part. 😉 Also the kicking plot of one of the shows we saw. The cowboys (I preferred the king… the first king… the purple king)  and references to other musicals weren’t so bad either. 😀

 

I have to say it was a terrific experience, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to see the shows…three times. #) Also, I’m thankful for ACG driving safely to come see them with me. It was phenomenal, and even if I have only seen it once, I don’t think I’ll forget it anytime soon.

 

So, keep your thumbs in the air, and your mighty cows in the trophy case. 🙂 😀 😉 😛 ❤ :O 🙂 O.o

 

(And in case you didn’t catch it, drive safely. <3)

Previously UnAired Post: “Winter Wondertasks”

Hey, y’all! Hi! *waves furiously* (Yes, it’s one of those nights.) So, last week we were wordsmiths. Tonight, though, we want to share with you a more “action based” set of ideas. Ideas that might chill you or that you might just find very chill ;). That was a bad pun (doesn’t mean I didn’t laugh). We are going to share with your our list of top December/winter-bucket-list-ideas, so they should be very chill.

  1. Decorate a tiny Christmas tree that may or may not be alive.

  2. Bake all the things! 😀 (seasonal and unseasonal 😉 )

  3. Meet up with old friends, and eat lunch, and get all the coffees!!!

  4. Make a million and two words. (Okay, not quite literally, but either or both of us writing large chunks on our current writing projects over our winter break is definitely a goal!)

  5. Ice skating with my younger brother who will probably make us look like baby giraffes because he is naturally that balanced and coordinated sometimes.

  6. See the anthropomorphic movie Sing at some point between now and January 8. Yesssss!!! (sorry to cut into her point but YES (It’s actually ACG’s idea, but I’m on board… We saw Moana this past Thursday, so it’s her turn 😉)

  7. Wear flip flops as many days of December as possible, because why not?

  8. Wear sweaters as many days of southern December as possible, because why don’t we have normal seasons?

  9. Spend as many days as possible with your Best Friend before the c-word rears itself again.

That last goal is my absolute favorite. 😉 But to reach that goal, she has to drive safely as you all should. ❤ (This one was a stretch. My apologies…)

Keep your goals sober and your eyes wild. ❤ 🙂 😛 😉 😀 O.o
