Thanks to Tiffany at TheTiffanyTree for tagging me, and I am going to tag all of my followers, because they are fabulous!
Okay, so there are about twenty minutes left for me until the New Year. While I'm typing this, at least. You know what I find interesting? Technically this isn't a New Year for me. A full year is on my birthday. So shouldn't I be saying Happy New Year and giving people New Years cards on their birthdays? Do you understand what I'm saying? It may be coming out in rambles, but I am on a laptop and I don't feel like taking more time to paragraph everything nicely(as if I actually do that normally). This laptop also means that I am not going to be able to take the time to post photos.
Everyone makes such a huge deal about the New Year and has New Years eve parties. I personally don't find it to be such a huge deal. The biggest thing I look forward to is dressing up nicely, and maybe some cookies. Right now I am wearing a button-up plaid shirt(blue, grey, white and black), a blue lace tank top underneath, black skinnies, converse and silver hoop earrings. Just what I would usually wear on a normal day. Although, I guess this is a normal day. I brought a notebook along with me on this trip, and I am writing a bunch of things in it, so I'll post some of them on my blog. Not all of them, because some of them are more personal than others. *giggle*
Two Thousand and Eight was filled with many different things, and I'm sure that I could make a wonderful poem and fill your mind with thoughts and intrigue you. The problem is, looking back on 2008, a lot has happened. I've changed a lot, yet I'm still totally the same. What a weird concept, yet, it's true.
I am going to be going now, because there are about 12 minutes left until the new year, and I'm going to go and PAR-TAY. Well, not really. I hope all of you had a great time and unless I'm lucky and can get on the computer again, have a great beginning of 2009, and make sure you wish everyone a great day!

In my last post, I mentioned something about bleeding. Well, now you will hear the story, and see a few pictures! The photos are small, so it isn't that gross or anything like that. I was recently performing in Seussical The Musical and in the song 'Here On Who' I have to climb down a ladder very quickly, and then go onto the main stage to do the rest of the song. It was probably my sixth or seventh time doing this, and each time I got down I would have a moment where I wave to the people on the other side in the wings, and they would give me a thumbs up or something of the sort. This time around, I went down the ladder and I skipped a few steps, but didn't take notice when I felt like I had scraped my knee, as I had done it that afternoon. I went onto the stage and kept on doing the number, and then when I had a chance to sit down at a part of the song, I saw a..sort of bubble on my knee, and I saw that I had a cut on my knee. There wasn't much I could do because the song wasn't over yet, so when we all stood back up, I quickly wiped the blood on the back of my hand and continued the scene. The song is longer than 5 minutes, and in the fourth minute I was standing downstage and I was singing out to the audience when I felt a warm liquid trickling down my leg. The cut was stinging a bit now, but obviously I just continued with the scene. After the song was over, I walked offstage and when I got there I quickly wiped the blood on the back of my leg where it would be less seen. I had a scene about 15 seconds later, so after doing that and two more songs, I walked offstage and the guy who was playing the Cat in the Hat got me some water and some wonderful girls got me some napkins to wipe my leg up with. After the show, when I got home, I saw that the cut was pretty deep. This only made my fear of heights worse. Below are three photographs of my leg. Aren't my heels just darling?
I really want fairy lights for my bedroom. I don't think I'm going to recieve any as a gift though. Oh well. My doorway looks nice in this photo taken this summer.
I always go on about how I love dancing in the rain, and here is a photo of my wet footprints all over after I had jumped around in the rain. My feet look so small! This was taken a while ago, probably June.
There are only two things to say about this picture, and that is International Music Camp, and emotional.

I was tagged by Sticky Kitten at http://stickykittenz.blogspot.com, so thank you ever so much! Getting tagged is so fun!
The rules: Share six things that make you happy and tag six amazing starry-eyed bloggers! Easy enough!
1. Seeing someone you haven't seen in a long time
I am going to tag:
I will blog really soon after this, but I just want you all to know that I am still alive and well(and bleeding).
Oh, and before I forget, thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments on my last post! Fifteen comments may not be a lot for some of you, but for me that is SO cool!

You can always tell when two people are best friends because they're always having way more fun than it makes sense for them to be having.
Reading is sometimes an ingenious device for avoiding thought.
if you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind wanders.
It's not what i feel for you, it's what i don't feel for anyone but you.
Just because it's not what you expected, doesn't mean it isn't everything you've been waiting for all along.
I hate missing you, but I love having you to miss.
and all I want now is to keep on walking straight into something I could adore.
if you hear that someone is speaking ill of you, instead of trying to defend yourself, you should say, "they obviously don't know me very well, since there are so many other faults they could've mentioned."
This is really cool to listen to. Some of the songs sound so different from the finalized versions and the workshop ones.

I don't think of myself that much, do I? I surely don't talk about myself a lot, at least compared to the average amount someone else talks about themsevles. Maybe it seems that way, but I don't. I wouldn't want to anyways. Who would want to talk about me all of the time? It would be pretty boring. But then again, if you are on the phone, what else are you supposed to talk about? The weather? Well, that doesn't interest me much. Most of the time, on the phone, I talk about my life, and the person I'm talking to talks about theirs. We discuss what is currently going on in the lives of us, share funny stories and things like that. I don't really know what else I'm supposed to talk about. Maybe I just have terrible phone skills. "Thank you for calling me here on my cell phone, this is Erin Meagan, how can I help you be awesome?" What a load of fun that would be.
I'm not in the best mood right now, so I'm going to make a list of things that make me happy. Glitter, blue christmas lights, daisies, mario kart double dash, the rain in the summer, amy diamond songs, giant pretzels(cinnamon sugar), putting my feet up at the kitchen table, harry potter, a good discussion, getting and giving compliments, scented markers, laying in the grass, walking along the shore, dancing to a song while singing along to the lyrics, concerts, honeydew, belgium chocolate tea, the weekenders, letters from camp, massages in choir, french fries with vinegar, salt and ketchup, wearing dresses, cramming a bunch of people on one object(like a couch), having someone read to me, chess, picking apples and peeling them, drawing a picture that actually looks good, getting and giving gifts, dance rehersals, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, cake, milkshakes, photography, lists, winnie the pooh, having a good laugh.
That cheered me up, a bit. Did you know that the real name for brainfreeze is sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia? Isn't that fun to say? PC vs Mac. What do you choose?

This set is titled 'fruit cup' and I just love how the red and green pop with the otherwise more 'conservative' colours(except they aren't conservative at all). I also love the flash of animal print in the scarf!
The title of this set is 'the love isn't nearly as equal as i'd have hoped' and I can totally see myself wearing this with my hair straightened and just left down. I like bright colours, and those 3D glasses are a definete fashion staple. I just don't recommend you wear them in class.
The title of this set is 'you don't want to know..trust me" and I like it because I love the colours orange and purple, except those colours don't look so good on me. I have a tank top similar to that one, and I LOVE the clutch so much! Cupcakes are fantastic.
I named this set 'he's a sweet talker..and i'm breakable' and the earrings are adorable! I love food-based clothing and accessories! The shorts make the outfit pop, and the animal print is great! Of course, underclothes are a must, and I just love the colours of the bra and UNDERWEAR. Not panties. Or thong. UNDERWEAR. Yeah.
The title of this set is my name, Erin Meagan, and it is pretty much almost everything I own, or close to that. I own the shirt, and a yellow headband, brown hair extensions, that phone(or at least before it got run over), black bow flats, argyle socks and a kathy van zeeland bag. I wish I had yellow skinny jeans.
This set was dedicated to all of the Nerdfighters, and it is called 'won't you be in nerdfighterlike with me?' and I love so much about it. I love the orange and blues together, and how the colour of the tanktop is in smaller detailing in the skirt. The camera is cool because it is orange.
Who wouldn't want that t-shirt? This set is called 'it was all in your mind' and I just love how everything goes together nicely without looking set up.
I think that's enough for today. I've seen a lot of people do blogs like this and I just thought, why not me? So tell me your fashionista stories in the comments, or in a blog post. I'd love to hear them!
I'll see you on the other side of happy,

A French writer named Marcel Proust found a questionnaire called "An Album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc." and he made a bunch of these questions popular and people called it the Proust quesionnaire.
