I Call A Do-Over

Life'sNotFairPrincessBride

28) Something You Regret

So one thing that I regret…I try not to dwell too much on the past and wish for do-overs. After all we only have one life:

RelientKOneLifetoLive

But if I had to pick one thing…hmmm…I know just what it is. Time to go back to 2009!

Back to the Future

So when I was in high school I did theater. Yep, I was  theater geek.

the wolfman play acting stage

I did musicals and plays. It was a lot of fun and taught me a lot of skills for public speaking and presenting. If only employers appreciated it.

JobInterviewSingMusical

So one play I was in, a made a BIG mistake. In fact it is one thing I regret and wish I could do-over.

clueless mybad oops

So I’ve done a post in the past on how I have had some guys like me who I don’t like. Most of them were a bit creepy in the fact that they were extremely clingy and always trying to be next to me.

No

Now I had one guy who was my¬†friend, but like we found out in¬†When Harry Met Sally¬†that’s a hard thing to do, and he liked me. I wasn’t interested in him as we were too similar in our personalities. It would have turned out very bad.

No thank youhowaboutno

So we both tried out for the school play, as we both enjoyed the theater, and won some of the lead roles.

Double double yay

The only problem? Our characters were in a relationship.

Spoke too soon

So as our characters were together, Patrick, my friend, started to blend fiction with reality and started thinking we were together.

Overly-Attached-GF-Marriage-Proposal

Just kidding. He wasn’t that intense.

Anyways, he started acting really possessive. He¬†¬†started to treat it like we were together; trying to plan out dates¬†and didn’t like me talking to other guys. This started to make me really mad.

I don't think so

This made me very upset. I didn’t like the way he was treating me, so I did the only thing I could think of. I spoke to the director.

I told him what was happening and asked him if he could speak to him on it. Tell him he noticed that he was taking the play a little bit farther then he should. I told him I needed help because it was making so uncomfortable and hurting my ability to perform well. He said he would talk to him.

Finally something GOOD!

I was so happy that everything would work out. The next day however, I the director¬†told me that he decided not to say anything as he thought anything he said would harm Patrick’s¬†performance.

Ryan-Gosling-Oh-No-You-Didnt-Half-Nelson

I was¬†so upset. And I continued to be uncomfortable. Unfortunately, this really hurt my acting as my scenes with him weren’t as good as they should have been.

uh-no-gif

I just couldn’t add to his fantasy that we were “really together”, when we weren’t.

Stop stop it now!

I wasn’t¬†horrible, as¬†lucky for me our characters, while in a relationship, were having some problems. ¬†So I was¬†okay…

Mehsleepyhollownotimportant

But not fantastic like I could have been. In fact, that director was so mad at me, that he never worked with me again.

boohoo_zps058c9fe1

Now I am more mature and to able deal with such an issue, I realize that I was actually the whiner in this. If I could do it again I would do it much differently. I would have just ignored his attentions, and continued acting well.

I-got-this-reaction-gif

But unfortunately I was a teenager, and we all know that teenagers do not have the best common sense.

NothingThatcan'tbeunfixedcommonsenseMissPettigrewLives4aDay

Oh, well. It was a mistake, but we just have to move on and learn from it.

So it’s that time of the year again!

Happy-New-Year

It’s time for our year in review! This is a time to reflect on what the past year held for us, the big posts, what’s new, and what you all seemed to like the most. ūüėÄ Something I did this year that I have never done before is post every single day, in fact I have reached my 300th and 400th post in this year.

Double double yay

So even though what I have listed below may seem like a lot, especially compared to the previous year’s reviews, this post is actually only covering a few things. You really should check out the year yourself. To start at the beginning go here.

heading-banner11970857801243195263Andy_heading_flourish.svg.hi

1) The Views

DisturbWhileRead

This year I had 31000 views!!!! Isn’t that amazing! I had only¬†9,542 views last year, which means this blog has widely grown! I have all of you to thank along with twitter and the good people at Buzzfeed who have been using my pics and linking them back to me. The top viewed day was October 11, in which I posted my review of¬†Scream 2,¬†It’s Happening Again, Isn’t It?: Scream 2.

heading-banner11970857801243195263Andy_heading_flourish.svg.hi

2) The Number One Post

Princess Leia

The number one post this year came during my 30 Days of Disney (see #17) in which I wrote about my favorite Disney princess. Since Disney has acquired Lucasfilm that makes Princess Leia a Disney Princess, and, in my opinion, the ultimate one. To read more go to A True Princess.

Second place went to a post from my first Valentine’s Day countdown,¬†Fulfilling the List: A Walk to Remember. In third was a post from my 2013 Halloween countdown,¬†I Saw Goody Osburn With the Devil: The Crucible. In fourth place a post dedicated to my sixth month anniversary,¬†Happy Anniversary. And rounding out this list we have in fifth place, a post all the way from my first holiday countdown,¬†Horrorfest,¬†A Monster Race: Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf.¬†

3) The Followers

Thank-you-in-many-languages

So this community has really grown in numbers and I can not describe how pleased I am about that. We have gone from 14 followers in 2012 to 42 followers in 2013, and are now at 169. That’s amazing!

heading-banner11970857801243195263Andy_heading_flourish.svg.hi

I started a new category this year called¬†Quotable Quotes. These are different quotes from books or sayings that I just absolute adore. Since I’ve added it, I’ve had a gazillion of them posted.

With 2014 we saw a return of the¬†Chinese New Year post, but it being a bit different.

11) Verne’s Back

TheReturnoftheLivingDeadVerne-PosterArt

2014 saw the conclusion of the Verne Saga. Some of you may have read my Verne Saga, but for those of you who have never heard of it before, Verne was a guy who kept hitting on me and never leaving me alone. Everytime I thought it was over, he’d pop up again. Although this last sighting was the very last one…I hope.

13) Honoring Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice Book Cover

Two years ago¬†marked the 100th birthday of¬†Pride and Prejudice and I was hoping to do extensive posts on the book; going over the novel, reviewing books based on it, movies, TV series, etc. Unfortunately, things happened and I was unable to continue. However, I did pick it up this year, and here are the posts I did on it. In¬†Flu Season¬†I talk about how Kitty is treated unfairly. In¬†Just Can’t Get a Break¬†I discussed how worse off Mary has it. In¬†First Impressions,¬†I talked about all the wrong things Mr. Darcy did when he was introduced to everyone. In¬†Oh NO YOU DIDN’T I wrote on Elizabeth’s reaction to Darcy calling her “tolerable.” In¬†The After Party, I wrote on how one always discuses what went on during a dance when it has ended. In¬†An Assembly Such As This, I reviewed Pamela Aidan’s first novel in the¬†Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman series. Be assured there are plenty more to come.

Now when I was working on going through the novel, I decided it was unfair to the rest of the works to ignore them all. So what I have decided is that I am going to try and do all at the same time. Reading so many chapters in one, and matching that in all the others. Of course, along with doing books based on, films, etc. I have already started on Sense and Sensibility. 

sense-and-sensiblity

I have so far done only one post on it, A Family Affair, but there are plenty more coming. I also will be doing something on Emma as December 25th marks her 100th birthday as well.

In Love With the ’80s (Pink Tux to the Prom)

Music With it Giles Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The music of today sucks. You know what’s awesome, music of the past, things of the past. Things…of the ’80s!

80s

I love the ’80s. The fashion, the movies, the music…It all is so cool. I would love to go back in time and visit.

NostalgiaforWorldNeverKnown

This shouldn’t really surprise any of you out there as I’m constantly going on about it. It also should be no real shock that this is one of my favorite songs:

In love with the 80s Relient K

In Love With the ’80s (Pink Tux to the Prom)¬†by¬†Relient K

I can’t find much information on the creation of the song, but it clearly was created by one who loved the ’80s. I just love the music and lyrics of this piece. In fact my senior prom escort joked about getting a powder blue tux, like the one in¬†Dumb and Dumber and I told him he could wear one like that (I think they are cute), as long as it¬†didn’t¬†clash with my dress. He chose to just go in regular black.

So it was Jeremy in 1983,

In his ocean pacific tee,

Who got a bloody knee,

On his skateboard,

In the halfpipe,

In the backyard,

That tuesday night.

And I’m only gonna pierce my left ear,

And I’ve been working on this mustache all summer long,

And my favorite band will always be tears for fears,

Psych Tears for Fears Shawn Curt Smith

And I’m gonna to wear a pink tux to the prom, a pink tux to the prom.

Cuttin class through the first four windows,

He’s drivin fast because he never did a thing slow,

And I look up to my big bro cuz in the eighties all the ladies grabbed his

hands and couldn’t let go.

And I’m only gonna pierce my left ear,

And I’ve been working on this mustache all summer long,

And my favorite band will always be tears for fears,

And I’m gonna to wear a pink tux to the prom, a pink tux to the prom.

Do, do, do-do, do, do, Pink tux to the prom, [x2]

I am gonna wear, a pink tux to the prom,

Live without a care, what can possibly go wrong.

When you’re the president of the breakfast club,

breakfast club

And you’re not hesitant to fall in love,

To fall in love with the eighties, to throw it away

to fall in love with the eighties.

I am gonna wear, a pink tux to the prom,

Live without a care, what can possibly go wrong,

I am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom,

Live without a care cause you threw it away to fall in love, with the eighties..

Do, do, do-do, do, do

A great song that I hope my fellow ’80s fans enjoyed as much as me. ūüôā

Here I Go

Clint

 

Well here I go, the second to last post on our “Getting Over a Heartbreak” list:

relient K_birdan_hi

30) Here I Go by Relient K

So here we are, another Relient K song. I think if you look at the whole list you’ll see a majority of the songs are either¬†Journey¬†or¬†Relient K. I can’t help it! That’s what I was digging after my break up.

So the reason why I put this second to last on my “Getting Over a Heartbreak” series, was that I thought It really expressed how one feels after you have been through everything and are 100% over that other person.

Over You

But over in the sense that you aren’t angry, you don’t care about that other person, you have completely moved on and are just focusing on what is coming next in your life. Enjoying being yourself and being alive. Here I Go!

Yeah!
Oh, believe me I have tried
to work this out from the inside
then I finally realized I need to move on with my life

MoveONRelientK
Gotta make something happen
not just sit around and wait for it
this place is like a prison I think I’m going to have to make a break for it
whoa-o here I go it’s like I made it for the first time
whoa-o here I go and I think it’s the first time I felt alive

RelientKCan'tWaitMakeitHappen

Yeah! Alive!
I’ve been so depressed I’ve been let down
been pushed aside been pushed around
there’s one thing that I need
something you can’t take from me

SeventhDaySlumberI'mworthMore

Gotta make something happen
not just sit around and wait for it
this place is like a prison I think I’m going to have to make a break for it
whoa-o here I go it’s like I made it for the first time
whoa-o here I go and I think it’s the first time I felt alive
whoa-o here I go it’s like I made it for the first time
whoa-o here I go and I think it’s the first time I felt alive

Move up, move on
you blink I’m gone
we only have one life to live
I’ll live it now
you have no doubt
I’ll prove you wrong
this is the only thing that I know
so here I go

whoa-o here I go it’s like I made it for the first time
whoa-o here I go I think it’s the first time I felt alive.

25) The Lining is Silver by Relient K

This song comes off the album¬†The Bird and the Bee Sides,¬†the same CD that¬†Up and Up came from. The title of the song comes from the idiom¬†“that every cloud has a silver lining”. Which means that you can always find good in bad.

Now the song takes it in a new direction. It does cover that in bad you can find good, but also that the silver lining is in you. You are the good in the bad situation, it resides in who you are. You are golden, you are awesome.

Awesome

I found my new black shoes
While cleaning out the bones left in my closet
They were there with the bad excuse
Bon Voyage
Bye thoughts

Bye thoughts

And I found a back up plan
I’m grateful that I didn’t have to use it
But it’s made of real good friends
Bon Voyage

Friendship

Isn’t it nice to know
That the lining is silver
Isn’t it nice to know
That we’re golden

Well I found a list of flaw
That I saw in myself and other people
And I threw it away because

Isn’t it nice to know
That the lining is silver
Isn’t it nice to know
That we’re golden
Yeah we’re golden
Oh

When it all falls apart and you can’t see
The forest for the cemeteries
Isn’t it nice to know
Isn’t it nice to know

Isn’t it nice to know
That the lining is silver
Isn’t it nice to know
That we’re golden
Oh

Isn’t it nice to know
That the lining is silver
Isn’t it nice to know
That we’re golden
Yeah we’re golden oh

I found a love in me
I always somehow knew that it existed
It just needed to be set free
Bon Voyage

Isn’t it nice to know

Over You

don't care

 

So here we are, another step on the “Getting Over a Heartbreak Series”. With:

Daughtry+-+Over+You+-+5%22+CD+SINGLE-412225

20) Over You by Daughtry

Daughtry is named after the lead singer, Chris Daughtry, one of the winners of American Idol (one of the few people who have gone on to do something.) In 2006, he and Brian Howe, music producer, wrote this song Over You. The whole concept of the song is that someone has been dumped and they are broken and feel that they will never love again.

neverfeelagain

But then, after you spend some time grieving that relationship you get over the person and move on.

“You’re with somebody for a really long time, and you pretty much think that this is the person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, and then they drop the ball on you. Then you think it’s over, your life is done, and then somebody better walks in.” -Chris Daughtry

So the music video is about a girl who struggles with alcoholism and ends up causing the death of her boyfriend. Afterwards, she goes to Alcohol Anonymous and gets over her addiction. I actually didn’t really like the music video, I thought it didn’t really evoke the song. But that’s just my personal opinion of course.

I really like this song after¬†Move Along as it states how hard it is to move on.¬†Up and Up and¬†Red Rubber Ball are still moving on completely being 100% over that person, but aren’t quite there yet.¬†Over You,¬†however, is. It’s done and the person is over you.

Now that it’s all said and done,
I can’t believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down,
Like an old abandoned house.
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath.
I fell too far, was in way too deep.
Guess I let you get the best of me.

DaughtryOverYOu

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should’ve started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I’d doubt you,
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I’m slowly getting closure.
I guess it’s really over.
I’m finally getting better.
And now I’m picking up the pieces.
I’m spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through,
I got over you.

DaughtryOverYOu

You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should’ve started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I’d doubt you,
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I’m slowly getting closure.
I guess it’s really over.
I’m finally getting better.
And now I’m picking up the pieces.
I’m spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through,
I got over you.

Well, I never saw it coming.

And I never thought I’d doubt you,

Well, I never saw it coming.

And I never thought I’d doubt you,
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know.

I guess it’s really over.
I’m finally getting better.
And now I’m picking up the pieces.
I’m spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
Well I’m putting my heart back together,
‘Cause I got over you.
Well I got over you.
I got over you.
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through,
I got over you.

And that you’re through:
