Abundance, Charity, and Goodwill Toward Men!

Hello All, The title of this blog post does not only encompass the name of the solo which I will be singing in the musical production coming up in my life, but more importantly, is my overall desire and hopes for this crazy stupid world we live in! Life is crazy. In so so so many ways. I don't even know where to start. The recent re-election of president Obama came quickly and suddenly and I realize that most of those around me are struggling for optimism, and solid ground. It's funny to me.. how everyone is freaking out. I understand that things have been hard the past four years, and that there were some decisions made legally that were questionable. But in the end, Heavenly Father's will was done concerning what needed to happen at this point in time. It's simply our job to hold our heads high and to keep moving. We're in for a lot of crazy things over the next four years I imagine.. but we can't let down now. Now, more than ever, we have to realize that it's time for us to bring our A-game and follow the commandments more fervently than ever before. We can't afford to get lazy and complain. I realize that I already made this statement on Facebook, but I say one more time as did President Thomas S. Monson, "The future is as bright as our faith." We need not fear. Everything will come around in the end.
Alright, next topic! So... school is crazy! I'm still trying to stay afloat in theory and do my very best in all that I do. The Christmas Carol is coming along just swimmingly. Yes, I said swimmingly. Hahaha! Man, I am such a freak about being in theatrical productions! I can't describe how much I love being in them. Once I am dedicated, I am dedicated for good. I've been working hard in the costume shop this week, and can't wait for the polished and finished product! Here is a little sneak peak, I play a sandwich board man at the beginning of the show before I get all Ghosty. I love it, personally. I'm a nerd.
We open three weeks from tomorrow, I can hardly believe it! What's next on the agenda, do you ask? Well.. a lot of things. Let's take it one step at a time. First off.. me and Trent have been ring shopping at a frequent rate lately. Crazy! I feel too young for this! And on Friday... is our five month anniversary for dating! I can't believe that it has flown by so quickly. I love that boy with all my heart, and I have loved every single moment that we've shared together. <3
Next! Once the Christmas Carol is over, I am on to a new stage adventure! I plan to audition for Legally Blonde the Musical with Queen Creek performing arts. I can't even begin to explain how much I love this production. AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is one of my all time favorite shows, which I did get to see at gammage when it came through, and can't wait to see again one day! The show is going to go up in the time period of rehearsals beginning at the end of November, and going up in January. So fast! I can't wait though. And luckily, it will be over before the semester even really begins. As Meg Clifford once said, "This show is like pink cocaine!" I can't get enough. :)
Once Legally Blonde has ended, the semester will have begun shortly after. In reality.. a semester of school won't really be starting for me. I have decided to work full time for my parents down at GMS, and I am hoping to save and store away some monies. I am so thrilled to take time to do personal things that I need and love without having to worry about the homework. HALLELUJAH! I am planning to continue taking voice lessons, but more than likely from a new source than I have been. I am waiting to see if I can budget enough, but I am hoping to take private vocal coaching from a well to do professional voice over, screen, and stage, actress. I am becoming very serious about my performing, and I have big goals. My next mountain to climb you ask?...
That's right kids.... I aspire to be hired on with Disney to perform in the Magic Kingdom. I think about my childhood and how much I loved it, and how somehow I have managed to never lose that light in my life. I think of how much I love to perform, and how much I love putting a smile on the faces of others. I aspire to perform in one of my favorite places on earth, and to bring joy to others. It may be a long road, but I intend to be there one day. One step at a time. Well Journal, this has been quite a wordy post. But it has been quite some time, and I needed to get it all out! Life is sweet, and I know that with faith, it will only get better. I am so grateful for all of my many blessings, and give thanks to my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ. Without them, I would be nothing. All my love, Calli
