only fun

Katie on her 12th birthday, last March.

Tonight, I will discuss only fun topics. The happiest moments I'm having lately are at the theater. Other areas of my life are causing angst and worry, but onstage I am completely content. This is very wierd.

I auditioned for the play to branch out, do something that scared me, and gain confidence. I've always felt awkward in front of big groups of people, so I thought it would be, as annoying teachers from high school liked to say "a good learning experience".

What I didn't expect is that I would be having so much FUN. I can hardly wait for rehearsal nights (even though it's great to have a night off, like tonight). It's stressful, crazy, confusing, and wonderful. I'm learning so much, like how to trust myself and other people, conquer the fear, and just enjoy it.

Other fun things to ponder:

Joss Whedon's (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Firefly) new series Dollhouse. They all kind of look plastic and odd in this photo. Back off the Photoshop, people!

Coraline, a stop-motion film based on Neil Gaiman's novella:

And this cute and creative site. I find myself wanting to own a plush toilet, stick of butter, and angry slice of toast.
