A Night With Philadanco & Mannequin Modeling

Hello, all : ). Sorry I've been MIA for a while, lots of things going on, but I'm back for good. On Friday, February 6th, I went out for dinner with the family (California Pizza Kitchen), and then we went to go see Philadelphia Dance Company (Philadanco). They were really good, I was impressed. Whenever I see dancers, I always wish I had stuck with dance *sigh*. But it was a good night.

On Saturday, like I previously mentioned, I did a mannequin modeling event at a local mall. My group did Bandolinos, and we basically sat in the store window for two hours. It was a lot of fun though, especially watching the reactions of the people passing by. And, the two people who work at Bandolinos were so sweet. The event went well, and next up, we have our Spring runway show, and runway shows are always my favorite : )

After that, I went to a party (it was a busy weekend!), and did homework on Sunday. Throughout last week, I just worked on a lot of projects, and I was lucky enough to have a four day weekend last weekend. I did some shopping, since I needed a dress for a dance on Friday. It's semi-formal, so I didn't want to be Homecoming-dressy or party-casual. However, I couldn't find any good dress that was in between, so I settled : /.

Then, today, I received and OVERWHELMING amount of college mail, just those ones you get through Collegeboard when you get you PSAT/SAT scores. I mean, I usually just get a few each week, but lately I've been bombarded with emails, and today, I came home to find this:Crazy, isn't it? This is the most mail I've ever gotten in one day. Could ths be considered harassment? Massive assault? Overwhelm-ation? Haha, okay, I'll stop. My ramblings are done.

A Cause NEAR and DEAR to me...

As much as I care for starving children and melting icecaps, I need to recruit everyone's help for a cause that has just a teeny bit more of an impact on me at the moment.

As some of you may know, I've been working my BUTT off on my governor's school applications for the past two months. I FINALLY handed everything in on Monday, intent on crossing my fingers when the acceptance/rejection letter arrived on April 17.

However, earlier today, funding was cut for the Governor's schools... meaning that they aren't happening... at all. Which, is ironic that they decide to cut it the day that all the applications are due.

This means that me and 4,000 other Pennsylvania students have lost countless hours of sleep, missed many parties, and failed numerous tests (MIDTERMS!) just to have a shot at the Governor's school.

Clearly, this is an issue, which I why I NEED YOUR HELP. Please call this (the governor's) number--- 717-787-2500--- and urge for them to not cut the Governor's school. Do it whenever you can, every call makes a difference, and they DO listen. This is all over the news, and many of the alumni have been trying to work something out.

It's just a phone call, and it would mean a lot to me and a couple thousand other teenagers from Pennsylvania. I know I'm kind of rambling, but this really means A LOT to me.

Please contact PA Governor Rendell: 717-787-2500

Also, for more info:


On a lighter note, I have a mannequin modeling event on Saturday : ) I'll try to be back regularly starting next week. Bisous, loves.
