Have a lovely weekend, I'll write soon. Summer time is here! ~Oriena
Let me start off with how wonderful and crazy-awesome life has been lately. I can not even begin to fathom what has happened over the past week, let alone the whole entire school year. Last day of high school has come and gone, just like that! In a blink of an eye, my four years of adolescence has escaped and the people have grown. My time here is done, completed, finito! Looking back, the first thought I had was, "Wow how everyone has (physically in appearance) changed! We don't look like 14 year olds anymore whoo!" and the second thought was, "When the heck were you able to drive, and you! Oh my god. (the realization that we are now technically grown ups and all, that we can actually drive, it's still strange to me, I don't know why). These funny and weird thoughts aside, I really loved high school and the group of people/friends I had the chance to get to know and enjoy school with, it was like the closest to a 'safe heaven' compared to my last school. But I know I'll even love university and life beyond just as much, if not more. No matter what, I'll still say high school was definitely one of the best times of my life despite the obvious cliches. In two weeks time, I will be known as a graduate and that's it. I'll never see these folks again, and that is a huge drastic change. We all make it through within time, but when the end comes, you really do not want it to change, considering how easy it was until now :) I feel sentimental, but it's the truth. It's just the beginning now.
here. This was a moment worth documenting on the blog as well, and I just want to say that, dream do come true but only when time will tell when it actually happens. Patience really is the key here, and never give up on them. This may be a small goal to reach, but if the small was reached and done, it'll save room for the even bigger ones - either way, each dream is special and worth it. Don't let them go so simply.
Who doesn't love Broadway? And better yet, WHO DOESN'T LOVE THE TONYS? It's amazing, outrageous, crazy and cool filled with the theatre world's finest alongside celebrity presenters as well. But more importantly, the musicals and the ensembles behind it.
Lastly, let's not forget who's hosting? NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, FOUR TIME TONY AWARDS HOST (back to back including this year), after tomorrow it will have been Neil's fourth time as host! Can you believe it? That's amazing, and I honestly can't think of who would possibly be a better more perfect host that NPH himself. The amazing actor/magician/performer is absolutely hilarious, charming and jazzy - all around perfect as a host. Honestly though, I don't need to further praise him because this man has hosted numerous award shows before, he's a pro already no need for anything else. Everybody should just make NPH the host of everything, trust me, ratings will go up!
Moving on, predictions! Although I don't live in New York (oh how I wish!), I do follow talks and shows of the Broadway world (thanks to amazing places like the infamous broadway.com). Currently the 'new' favourites of this year appears to be: Annie, Matilda the musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Cinderella just to mention a few. So I'm just going to shout out the plays/people who I think will win, skipping most of the categories because there's just so many; I'd already be happy enough with some of the awesome plays/people winning something.
WHO'S LIKELY TO WIN?: MATILDA!!!, CINDERELLA!!! LAURA OSNES!!(amazing actress, she's practically flawless)
*Notice how the exclamation points are the ones I want to win. The rest, honestly? I have no clue, last year's line up was more my faves.
But the performances this year during the show, oh boy that beautiful line up - Here's to hoping they will be spectacular!
Let's see who wins! Catch the TONY AWARDS tomorrow night (June/9) on CBS @ 8PM ET w/Host Neil Patrick Harris!

Until next time, have a lovely weekend!~ Oriena :)
Hola! Nope, I'm not speaking in spanish, but a lovely greeting nonetheless. It has been a while since the last posting, and since I've got a spare moment -Here are some things I just can't stop loving, maybe it'll spark some of your interests?
Have a Lovely week! ~Oriena
A little of Grumpy Cat funniness & type/text phone cases:
Diving into the prom craze (x):
Seeing Darren Criss in Concert soon when he comes to town, so Show People (via Broadway.com) interviews are always a win! Especially when it features some popular broadway boys/girls:
Current Tunes obsessions, as usual a mix of alternative, top 40 and this time -a lot of She & Him, because like many others, I can't wait until Volume 3 comes out on May, 7 (tuesday)! Perfect songs at a perfect time of the season:
Have a Lovely week! ~Oriena
This semester I'm roughing myself out to try my hand (and brain) as a lawyer -sorta. I have no desires to become an actual lawyer, nor am I suddenly going to become interested and obsessed with law/politics. I was left with no other choices but to take a law class to earn the last credit I need (which I am still in the process of until June in case anybody is confused); I'm just hoping I don't fail.
It's a tough subject and quite a heavy course load, but as I got into the class setting and started cracking the books and really try to understand it step by step, it has become fascinating! Sometimes I forget that when in doubt, use your logic. I've realized that there are a lot of topics within law that related to the knowledge and interests that I'm often so used to. It is true that law and english/media correlates with one another, but when you simply think about it at first, they really seem like two different worlds, and they are, just two different sides to one subject of the world. Law is the more hard hitting and serious side while english literature is the softer and lighter and nicer side to things. In the end they are both necessary skill sets or knowledge that we all need to know a little bit about. Now that I've set myself into the mindset of a lawyer or a mindset filled with the ins and outs of the politics and law world, it's aiding the side of my writing skills.
Sure the subject of law is out my league but it's a great skill/knowledge of something to have. By dipping your toes into things that are "out of your league" it might actually be of great help for your future or just how life is. It's never bad to have and collect extra skills, just be up for the challenge.
Like they say: Try something new! It may surprise you, whether it'd be new foods, trends, styles, subjects, ideas-anything! Don't become those people who eat and wear the same things everyday, spice it up!
Have a lovely week! ~Oriena
Before you knock it, hear me out. Who talks about motivation while you're having fun with spring break and relaxing (in what's very likely some tropical place like cuba or cancun)? Haven't you ever looked forward to a vacation/long weekend where you tell yourself "I'm totally going to complete this this this and still have so much fun at the same time", "I'm going to practically build rome in day with the amount of work I'll get through now that there are 3 days off!" -something along the lines of those perhaps?
Well I have, and I'm pretty sure so have many others. Here's the thing, does your motivation actually falter once you start vacation or does it falter by the end of your time off? I've been meaning to get a few assignments in while still trying to accomplish the list of movies I wanted to see since break. So far I've done neither and it is already Day 2 of the long weekend. So what does this mean? My motivation falter once the realization of "hey, I don't have to do anything and still have so much time on my hands to do all the fun things I want to!" and instead I procrastinate and actually do what's really important (in this case, my assignments due by Tuesday) and save my fun list of movies I have yet to watch back into the to-do list for the next free time off. This is where motivation falters once the vacation starts and only picks back up by the end of my free time off to finish what's necessary. Yet the entire time inbetween was all wasted and spent of doing pointless things, like scrolling through tumblr or something.
Then there are those people who are superbly motivated in the first few days of their time off and then fails time itself when the same realization of "doing nothing" hits them, and viola! Procrastinate by the end.
So how shall we tackle these bad habits? Or at least attempt to not loose focus and motivation so we can enjoy what is left of our vacation time? Time management, prioritize and certainly schedule yourself.
Here's an even better idea, place the motivation right in the center of your vacation time. Since the failure is always either at the beginning or end right? Then let's place it in the middle. Do nothing for the first day, then take the middle chunk of your vacation time and spend 80% of it on the things that needs to be accomplished. Work towards finishing quickly enough to save time for the near end to still end your vacation with enough time for enjoyment. It's a good try, take these suggestion if you will.
How have your long weekend been playing out? Have a lovely week! ~Oriena :)
The sun is shining and it is certainly a beautifully bright day! It's officially break and this is just a small post before more posting to come this week (except it won't be a lot quantity wise, but surely quality). I'm just falling it love how the weather is turning up, a little glimpse into spring don't cha think? Here's to hoping, since it's currently 12 degrees Celsius WHAT?! :)
Have a lovely week ahead! ~Oriena :)
Here's a listen to the brand new diddly/song courtesy of the genius that is, Michael Buble. Words can barely explain how much I love him, his music and everything. With the added bonus that he's Canadian that is. Can't wait till the new album comes out, but until now, enjoy the happiest "break-up" (supposedly) I've ever heard. He is just a bundle of sunshine ain't he?
Have a lovely week ahead! ~Oriena :)
Just a small post, check out mother nature this past week -yowza!
Anyways, I've got a test coming up on friday and I still have to nail my presentation with some avid debating (in which I am seeking redemption on right now!) before the entire week ends. BUT, what awaits for everybody is SPRING BREAK or as the Canadians call it, MARCH BREAK! So I'll definitely post more during then, but right now I'm on a bit of a stressy level with trying to barely ace a subject that's not so much my forte. See ya soon!
Have a Lovely week ~Oriena :)
