MUSICALS!!!!

broadwaybanner

Hi guys! So it’s been a while. A long while. A REALLY REALLY REALLY long while. Like 4 months. I’m sorry, it’s just the end of the school year is SO busy. Well, onwards!

So Imma be talking bout my favorite musicals. Let’s go!

  1. HAMILTON

images

(Right now one of my friends is cheering and the other is face palming. You know who you are.)

Hamilton is a hip-hop/rap musical based off the life of one of America’s founding fathers, ALEXANDER HAMILTON, and goes more in depth into his death (rhymes bruh) which was the duel with AARON BURR (sir).

I absolutely love this. The music is great, it flows so well, and the emotions are all ;agsmdifwpoaecj. It’s a great mix of action, betrayal, romance, heartbreak, and tragedy in one big 2 and 1/2 hour musical. All hail our savior Lin-Manuel Miranda for making this. Do check out the soundtrack. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR1jn8tfrLg

2. WICKED

13786-3

Wicked is a beautiful musical. It tells the story of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but from the perspective of the witches. Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Galinda, Glinda the Good, are actually best friends, rivals, and share the same love interest! It shows how the public’s opinion can give someone a bad reputation.

I got into this musical because we did a couple of songs at school, and I liked them. Now bam! I’m here. The songs are so good, and it completely changed my perspective of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. (Elphaba, go live a wonderful life with Fiyero) Here is a link to the soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL26061CE8F7C59F36

3. DEAR EVAN HANSEN

Last, but not least, Dear Evan Hansen. This takes place in high school. Evan Hansen has social anxiety, and he breaks his arm. His mom tells him to find someone to sign his cast. Evan Hansen also frequently writes letters to himself. One day Connor Murphy signs his cast, but also finds one of Evan’s letters, which mentions his sister, Zoe, who Evan has a crush on. Connor commits suicide, and his parents find the letter. Evan says he and Connor were friends (they really weren’t) and gets caught up in a tangle of lies.

This music tho. It so bootiful. I love this. It’s so relatable. There are so many upbeat songs, which hides the fact of a pretty depressing story. It shows how not everyone is perfect, and what reality does to some people. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLycFKrkRCmebsYLEMlXutryWDH97D258d

Previous Post: So…                                                                                                   Next Post: Blue Sky Tag

So…

ohhi

So… Hi guys. I know, I know, it’s been a while. Please don’t hurt me. *cowers away in fear* I thought that I might use this time to talk about EVERYTHING I have done during this time. First of all, HAPPY LATE CHRISTMAS/HANUKKAH and MERRY LATE NEW YEAR!!! During the holidays I went to Costa Rica (in a Spanish accent) and Panama. (not in a Spanish accent) I want to get a couple things straight. You have to try passion fruit juice in Costa Rica. No questions asked. You HAVE to. You also have to try ice cream. And hope you love beans and rice, because that’s their food. I’m not even kidding. Our tour guide (who is Costa Rican born and raised) actually told us. And in Panama, I saw………… THE PANAMA CANAL!!!! (bet you didn’t see that coming huh ;)) Here is a picture of how it functions:

panamacanal .gif

It’s really complicated. If you’re wondering what I got/did for Christmas, I relaxed in a hotel. Let me explain:

When I was in Costa Rica, I was with a tour system. We woke up somewhere from 5-6, go travel the area, come back to the hotel at 4-5, eat dinner, then sleep. And repeat. We stayed in each hotel for two nights. On Christmas Day, we were in Guanacaste, (hey that rhymes! on christmas day we were in guanacaste) which is this really beachy area which is warm and has a lot of beaches. (my english teacher is so proud right now XD) We stayed in a REALLY fancy hotel called the J.W. Marriott (ring a bell?) It was really fancy. Here’s a pic:j-w-marriot

I just relaxed here for 1 whole day. It. Was. Amazing. I came back from Costa Rica and Panama on December 31 @5 pm so I didn’t miss New Year’s. (ps i did nothing for new years. my parents were too tired) After two days I went back to school.

Now I have someone I need to thank. Her name is Blogtastic 417 (https://www.blogtastic417.wordpress.com) and she’s a good friend of mine. Thanks to her, I have gained a few followers and I have gotten nominated for my first award, Black Cat Blue Sea Award. So go check her out, ‘kay?

So, that’s all the time I have left for today. Two posts in one day. I’m proud. Oh wait, before I leave, I need to tell you something. One of my friends asked me. YOU DO NOT NEED A WEBSITE TO FOLLOW BLOGGERS ON WORDPRESS! All you need to do is create a wordpress.com account, which means you enter your email, and set a username and password. Here is a link to the official instructions. (https://en.support.wordpress.com/following/)

Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow my blog and I’ll see (write) you later!

(PS: We wish you a happy christmas, I wash you a happy christmas, I wish you some happy clothes, and a merry new yam!)

Trump Time

aaaadonaldtrump

WHAT’S UP GUYS!!! REALLY RED ROSE HERE!!! So, on November 8, 2016, Mr. Donald Trump was elected president. Now some of you are happy and some of you are sad and some of you are angry. I’m not going to share my opinion because, personally, I don’t want to be chased down and be burnt at the stake by the people who don’t share my opinion.

But do you know what I think is funny? The day after Trump was elected, people already began protesting against it and started screaming for his impeachment. HE HASN’T EVEN BEEN ELECTED IN YET! He has done literally nothing and people are already protesting. What bothers me is why are you guys protesting so much when you voted for him in the first place.

And then there’s all this news about the Canadian immigration website crashing. If you’re wondering which one it is, here’s the link: http://www.cic.gc.ca

People are already this eager to get out of the country! And once again, HE HASN’T EVEN BEEN SWORN IN!

And don’t mark this entire article as “Oh, Really Red Rose, you TOTALLY support Trump.” Once again, I HAVE NO OPINION!

I’m just saying this because whether we like it or not, Trump IS going to become our president. And remember, YOU CAN’T IMPEACH A PRESIDENT WHO HASN’T EVEN BEEN SWORN IN AS PRESIDENT!!!

Now, for at least 4 years, its gonna be…… TRUMP TIME!

WELL, MY FELLOW FRIENDS, THAT’S ALL THE TIME I HAVE FOR TODAY!!! PLEASE LIKE, COMMENT, FOLLOW, AND SHARE MY BLOGGY-WOGGY WITH YOUR FRIENDS!! ONCE AGAIN, I AM REALLY RED ROSE (who has no opinion on this entire election) AND I’M OUTTA HERE!!!

(Oh, also, I made a poll so you can vote whether you support Trump or not!)

Acronyms

 

aaaomgdog

WUG!!! RRRH!!! (WHAT’S UP GUYS!!! REALLY RED ROSE HERE!!!) As you can see from the obvious title and intro sequence, this blog post is about ACRONYMS. So for those of you who don’t know what an acronym is because:

A) You haven’t been blessed with my school’s BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, FANTASTIC, MARVELOUS vocabulary book.

B) Or you seriously just don’t know what acronym means.

Then here is the definition.

acronym /ˈakrəˌnim/ : a word from the first letters of multiple words

Still don’t know what it means? Here’s an example: OMG. Now you know what it is, right?

OMG and BTW and ROFLBMDJS are all examples of acronyms (Well, you might not know the last one but THAT’S OKAY!!) I seriously think some of these are SO overused. Because, think about it, you wouldn’t actually say FYI in real life. I mean, look at this conversation.

Friend 1: So you wanted to tell me something?

Friend 2: For your information, the meeting has been moved to Wednesday.

Friend 1: Why did you say for your information? Of course you’re telling me information otherwise you wouldn’t be saying anything!!

See. Look how weird that would be. And then there’s the problem of a person not knowing what an acronym means. For example, the classic LOL. That’s right CONVERSATION TIME!!!

Mom: Peewee (your dog who is really near to your heart because you love him so much) just died today. LOL.

You (who of course is very used to all this fancy-shmancy slang): Mom, how could say that?

Mom: Say what? I said LOL. Lots of love!

You (who is now horrified): Mom, LOL means “laughing out loud”.

Mom: Oops.

YA SEE! YA SEE! Sometimes acronyms can be really useless. But not OMG. OMG never gets old.

WELL, MY FRIENDS, THAT’S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FOR TODAY!! I HOPED YOU ENJOYED THAT ARTICLE!!! PLEASE LIKE, COMMENT, AND FOLLOW ME!!!! NOW I’M OUTTA HERE!!!!

(Oh, and ROFLBADJS means “Rolling On the Floor Laughing Because A Dog Just Sneezed.)
