Youtube Nonsense.

So a lot of people have been posting things on their channel talking about YouTube and how their accounts aren't in good standing.
I wanted to get myself out there - and obviously, this isn't the only way I'm planning on doing so, as I've only got about two people who actually care about checking here XD - and say that were something to happen to my account, I do have several other external, nonYouTube accounts that I can be reached at as well as two backup YouTube channels (I'll provide links at the end of this post).

I'd be really grateful were you to add at least the first of the two backup channels - as I don't plan on doing anything with the second unless things become really desperate.

I'd also like to mention that I do have ONE STRIKE against my account and that it is from early January of this year. Not to mention on a video I made when I first started my account back in 2006. Because the strike is so old, I'd like to offer that as a soother to those who are only just getting strikes now. If you've got more than one strike, however, I'd begin to worry,.

Here are steps for seeing if you've got strikes against your account:
Go to YouTube.
My Account.
Manage My Account.
Copyright Status.


And here are the links for my external accounts and backup channels:

Writer's Block: Don't Call It a Comeback

"I'm not the loser here, that would be you my dear sir, with your social failure, your asshole tendencies, and everything else you do. I mean at least I have some sort of a life to live." 
The French term "l'esprit de l'escalier," which translates literally as "the wit of the staircase," refers to those perfect, clever comebacks that you only think of after the fact. What's the best came-too-late comeback you've ever had?


Soz. Time for me to talk about what's going on in Leahland!!

This past Tuesay (6 April), I got a call to audition for both Cabaret and Hair, at Circle Theater!

Circle Theater = one of the local theaters of GR (they put on mostly musicals), and the home of multiple directors such as Tom, Shelley, Chris, and many others.

I'm auditioning on Friday, and I'll be singing "Gimme Gimme" from Thoroughly Modern Millie.

I also have a collection of many, many other music.
Which I thought was quite fantastic.

And a few weeks ago (two? 21 February) my twentieth birthday!
I had a bit of mini party with my family, excluding my (now pregnant) older sister Sarah and my brother-in-law Josh. 

All in all, I'm having a rather fantastic time. The weather has finally warmed up (there's a change!) and windy. And to make things better, I'm hanging out with Garrett this weekend! 

Lovelyyy :DD

(Auditions are on Friday the 9)

Writer's Block: Chatty

How horrible is that I don't have texting?
It's soooo un-typical. I know someone's thinking "she's nineteen and doesn't have texting? WTF!"
Can I retaliate with "it's no my fault"?

...didn't think so.
I dunno, I wish I could text instead of having incredibly awkward phone calls. Especially with my phone, since my call drops pretty much ALL THE TIME. Also, it's awkward calling people for the first time, I dislike it majorly.

  That does take out the personal element though. 

  For the record, I use my phone to call and probably still would if I had texting... it sometimes works better. I think texting is better if                
it's something quick and simple, then you don't have to wait for the ringing, or get the awkward position if you're calling a home phone      
and the person you're calling isn't home. So i'd probably use texting more if I actually had the option. Which I don't. 
Do you prefer texting or talking on the phone?

Writer's Block: AKA

Hmmm, the story behind my username, that's a good one.
It's actually a bit of lyrics from the song "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who.
It says"No one knows what it's like / To be the bad man / To be the the sad man / Behind blue eyes / No one knows what it's like/ To be hated / To be fated / To telling only lies / But my dreams / they aren't as empty / as my conscience seems to be / I have hours, only lonely / My love is for vengeance / that's never free / No one knows what it's like / To feel these things / Like I do / and I blame you / No one bites back as hard / on their anger / None of my pain and woe / can show through... " 

I just thought that the lyrics to the song, the bits about "dreams aren't as empty", " love is for vengeance", and "behind blue eyes" fit me really really well. The lyrics (especially the "but my dreams they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be") really ring true to my dreams of grandeur, while as my conscience seems to be empty capturing my bipolar and aspergers. 
And "blue eyes" was something that stood out since I have blue eyes. I also added angel to my username because I think it adds an element of my star tendencies. 

Here's a link to the actual song, for anyone that's interested:

Writer's Block: Dream Trip

I saw this "dream trip" question thingie and couldn't resist.
It's very me.

I love traveling. I really wish I could do more of it since I suffer from severe wanderlust natures, but I've never really had the time or money to really do much of it, though if I could I'd disappear somewhere for a weekend at least once a month (maybe even longer).

But if I could go anywhere in the world?
I'd love to go backpacking across Europe, though it's wicked expensive, but it looks amazing, sounds amazing, and I really want to see a musical on the London stage :) the accents are wicked amazing. A lot of my friends are also over there, so I'd love to have a chance to actually like meet them or see them at some point.

Sorry, I'm a loser for answering this. But no one probably cares enough to read this anyway XD

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
