      If anyone is going to be in San Diego this weekend, I'm going to be around for a couple of hours on Friday for the Nerd HQ Firefly panel and on Sunday for the Nerd Brunch/Zac Levi panel. My schedule didn't allow for me to attend CC itself, but if anyone else is gonna hit up those events, let me know. Or just stop by LA and hang, that works too.

      My star is AWOL, and my money goes to silly things like rent and food these days so this kind of heart will have to do.

      Since I made the announcement on here, I just wanted to mention that my trip back east has been put on hold. Some of my classmates are having financial aid troubles and I'm staying in Cali over break to help them raise funds and such. Such is life and all that. I'm not too bummed, though, seeing how humidity and I don't really get along. It's much nicer out there in the fall. Anywho, I'll keep y'all posted if it gets rescheduled.

      Stay sexy, kids.

      Iiiiiii wasn't sure until a couple of days ago if I was going for sure or not, but plans have been firmed up and it looks like I'm gonna be in the New England area visiting some old friends the last week of June. Throwing that out there! smiley1.gif Pretty excited, since I've never really been up there before (Philadelphia being the exception). Soooooo if anyone out there wants to hang, hit me up and we'll see what can be arranged.

      In other news, I'm so happy with life that it's almost disgusting. I'm not used to this - even when things are stressful, even when I'm broke, even when things go horribly awry - everything just feels so right. I keep having to remind myself that this is really my life now. Feels like a dream, except I know that in the morning when I wake up it'll still be here.

      Also, a group of us ran into Jay Chandrasekhar walking to dinner on Sunset and I made him laugh. Dude is rocking a serious 'stache. That was awesome.

      I hope you're all well and full of reasons to smile. We all deserve that much.

      ...hi guise.

      There's really no good way for me to summarize what the past year has been like for me so I'll just say this... I'm sure as hell the happiest I've ever been.

      No, but really. Since we've spoken last, I had microdiscectomy spinal surgery on the herniated L5 lumbar disc (that every doctor insisted for the past year would "heal on its own because you're so young" - BITE ME) which was immensely successful. Everyone who loves me has told me that since then, it's like they finally got me back. From June '10 to January '11... well, I really wasn't myself. I tried to be, but there are some kinds of pain you can't fake the smile through. To put it mildly, I've grown up. If you haven't spoken to me much since before last summer, then you honestly wouldn't recognize the young woman I'm turning into. For once, I'm... well, genuinely happy. I'm pretty sure the last time my happiness was this genuine was the first time I saw The Lion King.

      So, what else? I got into Musician's Institute in Los Angeles... which, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it (seeing how pretty much everyone outside of the industry IS unfamiliar with it) it's a contemporary music college - pretty much the only one in its class. I'm in the Vocal Performance program with a transition into Music Business coming in a year, and being here has only confirmed the suspicions I had in high school that it was everyone else who had fucked up priorities for telling me that I had to be just like everybody else.

      Oh, and then there's that. I moved out, living with a roommate in Hollywood. I love living someplace that never sleeps. Some people get lonely in a big city. I dunno, I'm a city girl. I can really connect to the humanity of it all.

      And then there's my classes. The kind of performing and the kind of resources I'm being exposed to after FOUR DAYS of classes are incredible. I just got here and I know I'm going to be immensely stressed out by the sheer volume of what I'm about to take it, but I honestly couldn't be happier. Stay tuned; it won't be long before I've put a band together. For now I have my eye on Fearless Records for my internship at the end of this, but in a year and a half? Who knows where I'll want to be.

      For the first time in my life, I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. I love you all - if you're ever in SoCal, come hang out. Rock'n'roll, baby.

      We'll wear this moment like its tattooed on our hearts

      and tonight will never end, and I never could forget

      you were my best friend.

      It was us against the world and we were filling our lungs

      with songs only we heard, just screaming to the sky

      there was nothing but us.

      But we fell out, broke down as our smiles turned to tears...

      Losing you was like losing the best part of me.



      Love you guys. Sorry I'm never around anymore. It's just as well. I'm not really me anymore.
      Looking back at old pictures of my friends and I... I swear, our smiles used to be brighter.
      I want that smile back again. Being without it is the loneliest feeling in the world.
      I'm just not so sure I remember how to smile and mean it.
      If I didn't have my music, I'd be lost. It's my last anchor to reality.
      I hope your lives are going well. You all deserve that much.

      ...that its 4 in the morning, I'll give it hell.

      So I had this big beautiful journal all typed out and then my dumb ass goes and refreshes the page without clicking submit... so I'm just going to give the EXTREMELY abridged version.

      smiley9.gif Had a terrifying morning in the hospital. My body is a traitor and a jerk and I want a new one.
      smiley9.gif I have amazing friends. Went to the first party Saturday night that I've been to pretty much since my back went bad at the end of last semester and the guys were so happy to finally see me out again that they reserved a couch for me to stretch out on (since I really can't handle standing up anymore for longer than 10 minutes) and defended it for me all night. I am a blessed, very loved girl. I figured they'd be irritated by my lack of mobility. I gotta tell you - you find out who your friends really are when the chips are down.
      smiley9.gifOctober 28th-31st, I'll be out in D.C. for this with my big brother. If anyone else is going (since I don't think any of you live around there, unless my brain is not working properly again) let me know. It's going to be, in a word, fucking incredible. Plus, I adore D.C. So it's a win win even though it really means there's no point in a Halloween costume... unless I go as a tea-partyer. Haven't ruled it out.
      smiley9.gif Anyway, only other imminent travel plans are the usual - Kir and I, LA blah blah blah. Can I just move already? Orite, my back. Otherwise, I could. Fail.
      smiley9.gif People should come to San Francisco and visit meeeeee.
      smiley9.gif Chuck, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, counting down to South Park... life is entertaining again. Also, REACH.

      That's all. I hope your lives are going well. I'd elaborate on stuff more, but... fuck it. If you wanna know what's going on with me, read my tumblr. Or just pay attention on facebook. I love you!

    • I've got friends in highly low places.

      "Rance Burgess is just a man. And I won't let any man take what's mine."

      So, as you may have noticed, I don't really update this thing too much anymore. I suppose I ought to do that - though, for future reference, any substantial writing I do is up on my tumblr. Link at the top of my profile. Or here, for you lazy bastards of the world. But, since doctors and my mother alike have threatened my life if I don't lay still more often, I find myself on my back with nothing to do but watch movies on my brother's server and think about stuff practically every second I'm not working.

      I've discovered I'm terrible at sitting still. I get stir crazy and think of something to do - cleaning, organizing, writing, singing, driving about running errands, whatever. Which is ironic in and of itself, because in highschool I'd have killed to be able to do nothing but lay down all day.

      Speaking of being on one's back, my jobs are killing me. My bosses are both aware of my condition and despite this, they give me pretty much no quarter. The problem is that I'm too hard a worker. I grin and bear it until I literally can't take it anymore so they figure they can keep making demands of me and it'll be okay. But it won't be. I reached my breaking point this week. I'm not going to end up in a hospital bed over this. So I'm not sure what the solution is, but I can't keep this up. I know that much.

      Socially, things are good. My friends are wonderful people whom I love very much, and will be very sad to leave in 3 months time... and yet, I'm so excited for my move that there are no words that can really explain it. Everything I've worked for, everything I've dreamed about is waiting for me and I've realized something about myself that everyone around me has always seemed to have known. That potential that I used to hate hearing about, that something that sets me apart from my peers - well, I'm at peace with it now. I'm going to take over the goddamn world.

      What's more, is that I'm really excited to go back to school. Studying something that actually matters to me. Surrounded by people who don't get confused or look at me like I have 3 heads when I tell them that music is the only thing that I really care about. I know, every kid says that. But for some of us, it's different. It goes beyond passion to the point that my lyrics are the only way I can really express myself and feel like I've said what I needed to say anymore. I want my music to matter to some kid who is just as lost as I was. And I'll finally be in an environment where I can make that happen. I know none of you have heard any of my songs, because I'm so damn picky about them, but you will. Soon. And I promise you, they're pretty fucking good. Some of you are even the subject... for better or worse. Bahahaha.

      So basically I'm spending the remainder of the year living it up with my friends (I've created a bucket list of shit I want to do while I'm still in the bay area, since it finally hit me that I'll be leaving this place probably forever. I mean, I'll visit all the time but it's different, you know?), healing (because who wants to start a new life as a cripple?), apartment hunting/job hunting (so that all that shit isn't dumped on me when I relocate in January) and working on my music so that I'll have a rough product to work with when I get to school.

      But now, kids, I gotta run. Visiting my nephew, Aiden. We always nap together... apparently I'm like tryptophan to the little guy. I swear, he's the cutest baby in the world, even if his father is a useless sack of drug-dealing cowdung. Matter of fact, his mama just called me. "Hurry up, he's getting fatter by the moment!"

      I want a kitten. I shall get one when I move.

      I love you all. Have my babies? I have great genes, promise.

      TL;DR Life goes on. I'm a boss. You're sexy and ilu. TOODLES.
