Phantom of the Opera

well Justin and i went to PotO on the 2nd. it was his fathers day present. it was absolutly beyond amazing! we both enjoyed it, though justin didnt like the woman behind us kicking him every 5 minutes. we had front row mezzanaine seats that were great! i really hope we can go to at least one show a year. it was great to get out just the two of us and also to have an excuse to get dressed up! though there was a couple there that made me giggle it looked like they were gonna go to prom! she had prom hair and everything. so long story short best money spent in a long time!

heres a couple pics.

justin and i. yes he wore a 100% wool coat in 90someodd degree heat!
squishy face!
the cast at the end.
the veiw from out seats. you could see everything!

life lessons

i posted this on my myspace but i feel like posting it here also

i stole this off a bulletin by mike. no idea if you wrote it or not but ill give ya credit!

1) Life is constantly changing - resolve to change yourself in order to keep up :)

2) We spend too much time worrying about stuff that we cannot change whether we worry about it or not so... resolve not to worry (do not confuse concern and worry though - learn the difference/know the difference.

3) Stay positive ALWAYS!! no matter the circumstance, it's usually never really as bad as we believe.

4) No matter how hard life is for you, someone is going through worse and that's the truth.

5) If you hit bottom, don't be despondent, afterall, there's only one way to go from there and that's... UP

6) Laugh at yourself often - it's self theraphy.

7) NEVER be afraid to state your opinion - a word of caution though - It's not WHAT you say but HOW you say it.

8) NEVER be afraid to NOT follow the crowd, as a matter of fact, LET THE CROWD FOLLOW YOU. Be prepared, however to be labelled a rebel, b*t*h, etc.....

9) The only person who has to live with you is Y-O-U so live your life in a manner so that you can look yourself in the eyes in the mirror.

10) Based on 9 above, don't place the source of your happiness in anyone's hands but your own. Others can bring you joy, be grateful for that but let the ultimate joy be within you.

theres some good lessons in there!
