Just wanted to say again that I'm no longer posting entries on this account... I'm using movabletype installed on my dad's server, at http://www.cdmo.com/sarahfromstaller/blog
. If you want the entries from there, just add ohmygoshman
to your friends list. I have something like 25 friends of this account and only 11 people reading ohmygoshman, so I just thought I'd post it again. Or you can just ignore me. Either way :-)

Body: Hello everyone. It will be interesting to see who responds! I told a guy that I could find 300 people who believe in gay marriage before he could find 300 people who do not believe in gay marriage. If you believe in gay marriage, please copy and paste this onto a blank e-mail form (leaving off the headers). or repost it..
Add your name and send it to your friends and family or repost it. If you happen to be the 300th person signing this, please send it back to, Andrew Nelson. His e-mail address is: Rnbowzrok4evr@aol.com Thanks!

Hmm... so moveable type is fixed, and my dad's server guy is my new God. This could mean I will be posting at http://www.cdmo.com/sarahfromstaller/blog
once again, though I'm actually rather indecisive at the moment. It mostly depends if I can get an RSS feed going so you can all still read on lj, otherwise nobody will read, no doubt. ;-)
"Look, the bells rang, they really rang. They weren't magical bells for lovers full of rum and music on a make-believe island. They rang to tell us what time it is."
Hmm... and yet I watched the scene where Sarah falls off the fountain into Sky's arms 3 times over... Such a conflict-inducing holiday. (No, mind hasn't changed about anything, I just definitely still have a silly little romantic bone in body, and it desperately needed to watch Guys and Dolls tonight)
Happy Singles Awareness Day!

My dad and I went to the NARAS
Grammy party in the city last night, which sucked in a big way... we actually ended up leaving after about an hour and going to the Mariott Marquis for dinner, but the real reason I'm posting is because I wore a new dress (which I bought yesterday morning after staying up all night at Staller, but that's another story), and I have a picture, and since it's such a rare occurence, I figured I'd share.

Nice day... lighting class was awesome, as always. Got stuck working at Staller when I wasn't supposed to, which means at this rate I'm never going to get my hours in at the theatre department shop for class, but my teacher sorta laughed when I explained this to her, so I guess I'm not in serious danger of failing or anything. Afterall, I'm SarahfromStaller. Anyway, the interesting part of the day was Dennett's lecture, which I swear I will go into in another entry when I'm more awake... which really means I'll forget or not have time or whatever... but really it was a good lecture, and Dennett is really interesting and worth reading if you're at all into philosophy and science and where they intersect. (If you've never heard of him, probably worth reading his essay Where Am I?
, though he's written many other, more interesting things, but that's what blew me away in the first philosophy class I ever took, at the age of 16. So be it.) And then I went to the cafe and we had a lighting design class party, which really was me, Julie (our teacher) and Kat (a theatre student who isn't even in our class), and it was good times. And then I dinered with Wilbur, and now I'm home, it's 2 AM, and I have to be at Staller in 8 hours. As much as I love my sleep, the best days seem to be the ones when sleep ranks really low on the priority list.
Anyone here on myspace.com?

I was going to write another LJ entry about how great life is and how much fun I'm having and how I worked my first industrial yesterday, blah blah etc etc, but I just read my friend's blog, and it has yet again hammered home those things that every few months I feel it's necessary to harp on. My life is awesome, and I still don't understand pain. And yet, I'm still ridiculously attracted to all the people who feel it so intensely... And the smoking, drinking, drug using, whatever, is not really that much different (though maybe less socially acceptable... or is that more socially acceptable? Not sure...) than the friends-on-meds thing I used to always have such a problem with. And I keep trying to understand, and I probably never will, but I want to. Maybe I'm just too complacent. Life is meaningless, let's have a good time is a perfectly acceptable answer to me. And I'm, as usual, not complaining that I don't have enough pain or anything ridiculous, I just can't help but wonder what I'm not seeing. Maybe everyone else is just trying to cut off their own hands or something, and I've just got more sense than that... (I keep hearing my mother's voice saying "if your friends all jumped off a bridge...")... but I doubt it. I don't have nearly that much faith in myself. Yeah, I'm awesome, but I don't think I have all the answers to life, the universe, and everything (well, other than 42). It just hurts me to see people I love hurting so much (and I'm talking about a lot of people, not just this one whose blog I read.) Maybe that is my own personal version of their 'pain'. I don't really feel it directly, but I have a very deep-seated desire to go around giving everyone hugs and trying to make it better.
Also, said person has the whole need to define him/herself by being in a relationship, and that's a mindset that I guess I've understood at some point, though not entirely and certainly not anymore. This rant I've done recently, but I guess I feel at least more sympathetic to it, if I don't understand it, because it really does cause people a hell of a lot of pain, even when they're completely aware of the situation. Why do we so desperately need something to define ourselves by? And why is it so often another person? Even for me, ms. don't-want-a-relationship, I still do the same thing. I was struggling with this whole concept back when we had the mini west-reunion, because I kept thinking that none of my own friends know "Sarah from Staller", which, really, is who I am now, for whatever that's worth. I'm not the Sarah I was 2 years ago... Staller, and the theatre in general, but mostly Staller, have changed me, and when I'm not with my theatre friends or people who don't know me as that, I feel kind of lost and don't know how to explain myself. Not that theatre is a new context for me, so at least there's some connection, but I've lost touch with all the other contexts I once felt so comfortable in... "Sarah the straight-edge, straight-A student" just isn't it anymore. But anyway, better to define oneself how I do than need someone else in my life to know who I am or where I stand.
As usual, I'm not sure I've said anything, but so be it. You know, I'm really getting sick of livejournal, and I don't know why. I think I need to go back to Ohmygoshman, if I can ever get myself to reinstall Moveabletype.
