Too Excited!!

   So, I have a class at about 2:30 today in the Creative Media building.  Now, as you all know by now, I've been acting since literally Kindergarten, but after Beauty and the Beast, I slowed my roll.  I decided not to major in acting because acting is such a fickle field: you can act or you can't.  Taking classes to improve that is awesome, but getting a degree in it is kind of scary in my opinion, so I opted for a degree I'm pretty sure I can get a job in incase acting fell through.  This time last year, I was auditioning for a senior project film-"Knock'em Dead."  I was cast as an extra, filmed for two days, and then never heard from anyone related to the project again.  I think something happened with the location, but whatever.
This is what I'm sitting under!
Well, this History of Magic and Witchcraft class is the first one I've had in this building, but I instantly loved the place--theater style posters with lit borders, big flashy lightbulbs like on a greenroom mirror, the works.  The place feels like home away from my Science Hall home.  Well, I've found myself a little place to sit in a hallway beside an information desk.  There is only one other seat here, but the one I'm in makes me invisible to the person behind the counter which is preferable.  Well, as I sat here doing some homework, another guy took a seat in the other chair and chatted with the invisible desk man (IDM).  Then, another guy came to talk to IDM, except this guy was talking about working behind the camera as a non-major!  Something I'm also very interested in.  I nerded out a bit and eavesdropped, but eventually got a "you need to talk to this person" response that I felt a bit meh on. 

   Then, as the Non-major walked away, the seated guy (SG) mentioned that he needed guys like that to be in his production.  I instantly couldn't help myself and essentially said I was an actress and I'd love a role.  He enthusiastically asked for my email and I equally so gave it to him.  I also offered to help with backstage work, even making sets if needed and he said it would be filmed on a theater set which is my home turf!  Squeeeeee!!!  Hopefully, I can get my name out there as a non-major actress who's hopefully more available and (hopefully) less of a diva than most acting majors (one of the top reasons I didn't want to continue acting).

   So, I am waaay too happy not to share this shred of hope with you all!  Hopefully, we'll hear more about this soon!  Also, tomorrow I'll probably be doing an art stream as I draw the Me+Free Valentine's Day Special which is Fallout themed!!!

See ya all later!!! <3 <3

Back to School :(

   Welp, time for my hardest semester yet.  This semester I have 17 hours, I'm moving houses, trying to make a streaming/YouTube career, and trying to survive.  This semester will be hard, but I hope I can make it ;-;  Mon-Wend are my hardest days because I have all but 1 of my classes.  Fridays are free, so those will most likely be stream days.
    In good news land, my Japan Crate has arrived and the 1upbox and Lootcrate have shipped, so hopefully, those will all be here this weekend! 
    I hope everyone is going to get through the school year with me!  <3

Fire at the Disco! Fire at the A-Part-Ment!

    Hello hello my lovelies!  First of all, I want to mention how I've had a sudden surge in views which is awesome!  So far, this is the most views I've had since January of last year, and we're only 10 days in!  Plus, we've now reached over 20,000 views!!  Wooooo!!  :D  I guess you could say....this blog is on...."fire?"  Eh?  Eh?  Title nod?  No?  Also, as I look at my intro, I realize I sound a bit like the Phone Guy from FNaF?  Weird....

From Target!
Anyway, let's get to talking about that cryptic title beyond my terrible pun!  Firstly, no, there was no fire at any Disco at I know of, buuuut there was one at my new apartment.  As I've been mentioning in my videos and the year summary, I'm moving to a small apartment.  WELP thaaaat's been delayed!  A fire started somehow in the ceiling with some insulation catching fire.  Luckily, no one and nothing was hurt/damaged aside from the roof and a bit of the floor.  Even luckier (more lucky?), the insurance will cover new wiring, flooring, ceiling repair, and even a paintjob for the little place!  Basically, it's going to be nice and shiny when we move in!  Yes, I just said we!  You all are coming with me on a grand adventure!  In the meantime, I'm mentally designing the tiny room.  I'm thinking of buying a few gaming posters and I did buy a cool arrow sign to hang up on the wall either behind the couch or maybe in the little kitchen!  The repairs should take 3-4 weeks, so don't expect to see the new place in the next video. 

     Next Video?  Oh yes!  In the past few vids, I mentioned that I'm contemplating switching crates!  This month, I'll be receiving Loot Crate, 1up Box, and the LootAnime Mega Crate (courtesy of Jaimi!) and will be doing a nice long comparison of the three liiiive on twitch.  Those sorts of things usually come on the 20th, so that's probably the next big video until the vlog I plan to do on moving day! 

    Also, school begins for me on the 20th as well ;-;  Boooo, I know.  Until then, I've been enjoying my break--playing some Binding of Isaac.....not moving....that's about it really!  I'll most likely NOT be streaming again (or at least not streaming any games) until the new house.  I might, however, finish streaming my Star Wars/comic art because that's an easier setup.  Furthermore, if you guys really want to keep up with the random parts of my life, follow me on twitter, or watch that little sidebar on the right!  Otherwise, that's about it for today!  I'm going to go to bed now XD  Goodnight everyone!  Hope you're all enjoying...whatever is going on with you!  <3

Why Talking About Star Wars is Hard

  One thing I was thinking of last night was the way people talk about the Star Wars series.  I have noticed there are a lot of confusing ways to address the films/sets of films, so why not look at those for fun huh?  This is not a comprehensive or even serious list, just something I thought of before bed that I hope you enjoy ^^  Also, if I missed anything that you guys have heard that's confusing, weird, awesome, etc, leave a comment or send it to me on twitter @Alias_Lea!  I don't think there are any spoilers in here btw!

What People Say What It Can Mean What Can You Say Instead?
"The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. movie" The X movie to come out, or the X movie in the chronology. "Episode 1, Episode 4, etc." or "The Phantom Menace, A New Hope, etc."
"The first ones" The first 3-6 to be released, or the first X number in the chronology. "The Original Trilogy" (IV,V,VI), "The Prequels" (I,II,III), or the Original six (or something more catchy).
"Star Wars" The entire franchise, latest movie, or Episode IV? Depends on context???
"The Clone Wars" Episode II, the event in canon, the 2003 animate series, or the 2008 animated series? "The Clone wars movie, the old clone wars show, the new clone wars show."
"The Animated Series" Droids (1985), Ewoks (1985), Clone Wars (2003), Clone Wars (2008), Rebels (2014) Name of show/see above
"The New Ones" This will soon include not only VII, VIII, and IX, but also 3 (or more) spinoff films including Rougue One. "The Sequel Trilogy" (which sounds a little lack luster to me. Any better ideas?) and "The Anthology or Spinoff Movies/series/trilogy."
"The Bad Guy" The Emperor/Chancellor Palpatine, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, General Grevous, Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett, The Sith, The Empire, Stormtroopers, The First Order, Hux, Kylo Ren, The Supreme Leader, Jar-Jar Binks, George Lukas, etc. etc. etc. ..........
"The bad guy from..?"
"Star Wars Christmas Special" A fate more painful than the stomach of a Sarlacc Nothing.  Forget it's existence.
