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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Avengers Assemble

So I’m sure some of you are wondering what happened to the fandom posts? Why have I stopped doing them?

Well, I wanted to do a post on how great I think Cecilia Gray is. She not only liked my review of her book Fall For You (Jane Austen Academy #1). After that I stopped as I was feeling kind of under the weather.

WakeUpNoThankYou

I was feeling tired all the time, but that grew into a headache and sore throat. But then on Thursday morning I couldn’t hear out of my right ear.

OhNOthisisgonnabebad

That’s it, I need to go to the doctors. I wanted to put it off as I hate doctors, but figured I’d better go and get it looked at.

doctorhatedoctors

I know it takes forever!! So I had to wait, and wait and wait and wait and wait…….

I'mwaitingPrincessBride

Finally the nurse saw me and it turned out that I had an ear infection and a fever of 100.3. It was funny as after the nurse took my temperature, she asked me if I knew I had been running around with that high a fever.

uh-no-gif

When I was younger I used to get fevers of 103 & 104. 100.3 is nothing.

So the doctor finally saw me and gave me a prescription and sent me on my way. I had been waiting forever, but the actual time of the doctors was like 10 minutes. How is that fair?

And then you have to wait an hour for the pharmacy. Yuck.

So there was one big problem with being sick. I had tickets to see the Avengers: Age of Ultron, the midnight showing.

AvengersAgeofultron

Oh yeah!

Oh yeah!

But you know what? Being sick wasn’t going to stop me, yep I was going to see that movie even though I had a fever and could hear out of only one ear!

thinkGeek

That’s because I’m a true geek and hardcore fan.

Fangirl

When I got to the theater, I was the only one in my party. You see, since I’ve moved back home I don’t really see people my age. There was one guy I befriended, but he wanted to move on to dating, and I wasn’t really interested in him. So there was no one else I knew who’d be down for a midnight showing.

When I went to turn in my receipt from buying the ticket online, they guy asked me all shocked like-“only one?”. I felt sooooo embarrassed.

So embarressed

So embarressed

Like Josie in Never Been Kissed when she wants to go on the ferris wheel. It made me feel like a loser.

no friendsneverleavehouse

But that was short lived as I’m okay being alone.

And I was really excited to see the movie.

excited

So now you are probably wondering what I thought of it. There were some things I had a problem with (one particular death of which I won’t say but thought was stupid to have!!!!), but on the whole I loved it and am seeing it again tonight.

AvengersAssemble

I actually am reserving the rest of my thoughts for a later post. As Tony Stark and Bruce Banner create not one but two creatures, you can argue that this is a horror film, mad scientists creating monsters. So I will be bringing back the Avengers: Age of Ultron in October, during Horrorfest IV.
