I've missed this

Hello again.
same picture, I know, but I like it, so I decided, why not? :)

So, I have missed this. A lot. But I have not had time for it and so I am pleased that I had a break.
Guys, I have been in a theatre production of Next to Normal, and it is simply the most incredible show. It is a musical, and it is the most powerful one I have ever seen or been a part of. It's not your average jazz hands musical, this is raw, and powerful, and emotional. It won a Pulitzer Prize for being the first musical to deal with mental illness. The music and the script are incredible, (seriously, if you ever get the chance to see it, do, you won't regret it) and I have been lucky enough to put the show on with the most amazing people. I have made some amazing friends doing this, and I just feel so lucky. Because I have always been one of those people who has not that many, like one or two really close friends, and then a couple of other people that I know well. But now I have my friends from school, and my awesome blogging friends, and now my friends from theatre, who just make me laugh, and laugh, and we have the best times. :) Especially one person I didn't know that well before the show, and now we are good buddies, and I am so pleased that I got to know him.
But anyway, sorry for rambling a wee bit. It's after one of our shows at the moment and I'm just feeling pretty good, plus it's the first day of the holidays. I will be returning to normal blogging now, with a great unknown post on wednesdays and another post in the weekend. I've missed you guys!!! I'm excited for the rest of this year, especially seen as I think I am getting closer to knowing what I want to do next year, which you will know if you have been reading my blog for a while that that is something I have been struggling with and why I started my great unknown series. But I will talk about next year in another post, which will finish off the great unknown series. :)
Now you're all caught up, and I think it's bedtime for me. (So glad to be back!)
