Almost the Last.

So it's the second to last show for "Almost, Maine" and I honestly feel like just crying. I have loved this so much it hurts.
After a semester long break of doing nothing creative I was so thirsty for something to challenge me. Probably hungry too. Yeah, I was hungry and thirsty. And when I finally got the opportunity to audition I threw myself in and magic happened.
I will admit, the part I got was not the part I wanted. But I got to be on stage with my best friend Scott and that was pretty cool. He was so excited. Like more than excited, but I'm not really sure the word for that. So just imagine that feeling.
I decided to be happy that I could be a part of something, at least.
And then finally (I don't remember which rehearsal it was) I got excited. I got excited to be speaking, to be silent. I got excited to hear about a snowball. I got excited to sit on a bench with Scott every freaking night.

Honestly, I'm on stage for all of 5 minutes. And honestly, it's been my favorite 5 minutes I've spent in a really long time.

Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. It's been a blast.

But a special thank you to Pete.
Thanks for waiting me.

Best Friend

Best friends are soul mates.
No Matter how much you speak,
You listen to me.

Okay I'm really sorry that I have left my blog unattended once again...but I'm busy. And a lot of things just come before me writing my thoughts down on the good old web. And in all honesty, if you want to know my me.

Okay so I just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower for the second time in my short time here on this earth. And I feel like I read it for the first time. Okay a little thing about me....whenever a book is getting turned into a movie, I try to read the book before I see it. Emphasis on the word TRY. But so far, I'm doing really well. I bought my own copy this time and marked it all myself. In Purple Pen. And some pink highlighter. But mostly Purple Pen. That just seemed right. So whilst marking in Perks with my Purple Pen I just got to thinking about the first time I read it.

It goes as follows:
My new friend Scott Zaborski asked if I would want to read it. At this point Scott and I didn't know each other super well (like how he had a super cool hidden talent which I won't spill here, and how his first name is NOT Scott. That on kind of blew my mind.)...but I was allowed in his room sometimes and I knew that was a pretty big deal. So he had explained to me that Perks was his favorite book. So he asked me if I wanted to read it together. I was so flattered that one of my first college experiences was about to happen. Dorm life. Scott explained to me that I had to mark in his books when I read them. And I think I read Running with Scissors before this so I kind of knew the drill. (Waterlogged that book.... :/)
But the thing with that book was I was the first one to mark a lot of things. So it was cool. But when I opened was like magic. There were so many notes in the margins!!! It was like I was actually reading it with people. And that was so beautiful and collegy to me. For a few times, another best friend came to read too. His name is Michael Johnson. I was the luckiest girl in the world. Being in a too small dorm room, sitting on a too small twin bed, and reading a book that mattered.
I honestly think I was so caught up in the college experience that I must have missed very important parts of this novel. Because reading it this week, I just caught on to so much more. It's perfect. And logical. And emotional. And raw. And beautiful.

And infinite.

Since reading it the first so many things have happened to me.
So many people have affected my life. Maybe I have affected their lives too. And maybe that is why this book was so different to me. Maybe I'm different.

For the better.
But I would just like to let the world know how grateful I am for Scott Zaborski. Not only for showing me that amazing book, but for being the best friend a girl could ask for. I love you. And I don't know where we will end up But I do know that:
(Choose your own adventure!)
A. You'll be in my heart.
B. I have been changed for good.
C. I was enchanted to meet you.
D. Some things you'll do for money, some things you do for fun. But the things you do for love are going to come back to you one by one.
E. We could be heroes!
F. And in that moment I swear, we were infinite.
G.Arches at 2 in the morning was one of the best mornings ever. Ever.
H. Listening to the Perks Soundtrack in the Canyon with you is my favorite.

I've been a horrible blogger as of late. Maybe that will change. And maybe it won't. But the beauty of that is: it's my blog and I can do whatever I want all the days :)

Well the summer has come and gone and school started today. I had a really great summer!!! I lived somewhere other than my normal home. And it was kind of an adventure. I strengthened some friendships, made some new friends, and made some adult choices that were really hard. I learned a lot. Made some mistakes. Made memories. And I think that's all you can ask for a summer really.
School started today and I WAS SO EXCITED! I bought my school supplies. I got some new clothes. I was too excited to even sleep. I just love to learn I think. And after a summer of being lazy AND working hard, it was so good to get back into the groove of things.
But more than that I decided that this was a time to be grateful. Because honestly, I tend to take things for granted.
But I realized something. I'm so blessed. And I honestly don't take enough time to thank everyone for how much they mean to me. Including my Heavenly Father. So I am trying to make that more of a habit in my life. To say thank you.
I was so excited to start school because I realized it's an amazing opportunity to be a student and study whatever I choose. Maybe to even go to school. So I've decided to be thankful. Thankful to be alive. Thankful to have a wonderful support system. Thankful to be Just Lisha.
