October: Craftmania. begin dating Billy.


December: break-uup / play goes up / finals / possible closing of business (which looks like it wont) lose wallet...gain new identity / meet poets / hang out on lancaster st and fall asleep on marble st couches

wow. it's very odd to look at an entire year like that.

Anyway. Sad news. the North Shore music Theatre, where i grew up and worked at and loved and all that jazz might be closing its doors forever Jan 11. Guess thats the nature of the business ive chosen for myself.

And if you ask me about Gaza, I will respond the same. Don;t ask me about Gaza. I don't want to give the "Jewish perspective" on it. I have my own opinions and they are complicated.

Having friends that you can just hang out with, who don't have any expectations of you at all.

...who understand when you're working three jobs and are a student and need to just do nothing and relax.

or pass out on their couch...;)

First off, I'm slightly sickish. It's worse at night and in the mornings but my tonsils are the size of large marbles. Kat's sick too so she sneezes at me and I cough at her. It does mean that after I get Kristin's kids sick tonight, I am going to return home to be sick alone...

Second, I am awesome!! Broad Meadow Brook Audobon Society and Higgins Armory are both going to be at Craftmania!! Things are really looking up for that event.

Third, look what I can do ::does a handstand::

Fourth, I had a really great fall Worcester morning yesterday. i went to the farmer's market on Chandler and then the Mediterranean market. The weather is just turning now and I think I'm finally excited about fall. I got some great bread from the breadman at the Farmer's Market. You guys should check him out. Currently enjoyed roasted garlic bread....mmm

I really do think I've finally made Worcester my home. I feel like being at WCC has helped me become a strong part of the community. It's nice not just to rely solely on your school to be your community but to be able to give back to the community.

Fifth, I am scared that our nation is not going to last another week, let alone another year. Things are so messed up right now and not even if Obama is elected will everything be fixed immediately. I think I need to take all my money out of the bank and hop in my car and drive to Mexico. Who's with me? I'll get a job on a farm, learn Spanish, and won't look back.

Sixth, I really like being a photographer. Somebody should really let me take their picture.

Seventh, What's better, Organic Choices Bear or Seasonal Depression Bear? I am playing in Shaughn's game tomorrow night as well as a LARP!! I've been trying to be more creative in my free (whatever amount of free) time. It's hard in a way because I am having problems concentrating on books. I can do poetry pretty easily, lots of Heaney and Neruda.

Eighth, I've been throwing myself into a little project. I collect articles about arts education and policies related. If you know any, or read anything, please send it my way. I have an abstract project in my head.

I've been visiting with my niece and nephew for the past couple days...

Oh they grow so fast...Home tonight to see Billy-Boy and friends if anyone is around. I've been neglecting everyone so much. bad krafey, bad!

Don't worry. In about a week's time, everything will go back to normal. I'll be different. A more fulfilled human being who smiles more often but I'll also be more available to hang out.

I had a weird dream last night that tom's mom, who was not tom's mom in real life caught me drinking in tom's room in the middle of the woods? she asked if i was seeking therapy...odd. i also told tom in my dream that i was over him which was hilarious because he didn't believe me. but tis true.

there was more to the dream i wish i could remember...

One of my fellow actors from the Rebel Shakespeare Company passed away. She was extremely talented, kind, and I'll never forget her.

I have this one moment in my head of when we were must have been Hamlet. We were backstage getting into costume. She was playing either Rosencrantz or Guildenstern and I was playing Ophelia. It was either her first or second year in the program, her brother had been doing it before her).

It was one of the last shows and she told me how much she had looked up to me and that when she used to see her brother's shows, she would say, "I wanna be like Kate Rafey" to herself.

I don't think anyone has ever said that since lol.

I hadn't talked to her in years. She dated 2 of my friends and days before she passed. One of them was David who told me he had met a girl that knew me and I remember telling him I was unhappy with the way I had heard through the grapevine she had been treating the other boy. (I still feel guilty about saying that). I found her LJ and wrote on her wall making a joke about how she was stealing another one of my men:

holly! its kate! how are ya? hows life? i see your stealing another one of my men! ;) joking!

hi love! it's been far too long
i'm a theif? :( i try to be good, really i do!

The next night, she was hit by a car in Swampscott, along with another girl and passed away the next day. I was already at a pre-college program and could not attend the funeral.

I hadn't seen her in about a year. I didn't think it appropriate for me to go.

Four years later, I am still terrified every time I cross a street. I still think she was the perfect Audrey and a most beautiful person.
