HELLO!

It’s been a while, for several reasons!

First, because in October I went home for two weeks (as I’m sure you all know because I probably saw you at some point in these two weeks).

Luzern!

Second reason, there has been so much going on that I honestly did not have time (or was too lazy) to write a new entry. But now I’ve had a lovely and very relaxing weekend so for the first time in ages, I’m in the mood for a new BLOG ENTRY!

So here we go, I have loads to tell you all, so get ready!!!

In the last two months, we’ve had quite a few performances, with two more to come next week. We performed the opening number from Rent on our school’s sixth form open evening (I also got to play the piano again). In the Christmas Sharing this week, we did the opening number again, as well as Seasons of Love, where I got to do a small solo which obviously was nice. We also did a Christmas choreography which was quite funny and included things like a slow motion section where we pretended to be people running into a shop to buy presents and a section where the girls all had to dance around Santa and in the end run off after him screaming. Next week it’s the Christmas Cabaret (on Tuesday and Wednesday) where we’re going to do Seasons of Love again and sing in the background of the finale. I’m glad when that’s finally over because the rehearsals are just exhausting because there are so many people and children there.

Back in November, we filmed that dance video that I mentioned before and it was a lot of fun but also incredibly exhausting (we started at 1 and finished shooting at halfpast 5, without a break!). Sadly, I don’t have a lot of pictures and none of me in costume because we did not have any time for taking pictures, it was that stressful. We just got to see the final video a few days ago and it’s really funny, I hope I’ll be able to get it somehow so I can show it to people who want to see it!

Also back in November, it was Fran’s birthday and on her birthday weekend, we had a lovely lunch in a restaurant in Canterbury on Sunday and on Saturday, Darren organised a murder mystery, which is basically Cluedo in real life, so everyone there had a part and you had to figure out who the killer is by asking each other questions. Everyone gets information on their characters so they know how to answer the questions and in the beginning everyone had to draw a number and one of the numbers had a cross next to it, meaning that you’re the murderer.

Guess who’s number had a cross next to it?

YES IT WAS ME! I was the murderer, which was slightly stressful because while everyone made notes and was busy figuring out who the murderer was, I had to pretend to take notes so I wouldn’t look suspicious and also make sure to hide the fact I’m the killer. Out of about ten people, only one of them figured out it was me, so by the end of the evening I was incredibly pleased with myself and proud of my acting skills. I was the young widow of the murder victim so I had a lot of fun playing that and it was an absolutely great evening!

And aalsoo back in November, Aniela went on a holiday for a week and while I wasn’t alone at home at night because Sandra from next door came over, it did feel a lot like that because she would come over quite late so I was on my own most of the time.

I absolutely loved it! I got a lot of homework and stuff done and also cleaned a lot. Once I also baked muffins (quite late at night but who cares?!) and then at the weekend I might or might not have bingewatched the entire last season of Teen Wolf (20 episodes, 40 minutes each, it was great). I only had a little powernap for half an hour in the early morning to keep me going, it was glorious, I tell you! Have a look at my bingewatch impressions, I think they’re very expressive!

 

In school, there’s not much new, we’re still doing Rent (almost done with Act 1 now!) and still working on acting through song. One fabulous thing we got offered are monologue classes on wednesday afternoons. I’ve been there three times now and it’s great and really helpful (partly because not many people bother to show up, which means private lessons with two professional actors for me!) There’s also a new fitness and conditioning class on thursday which I really enjoy because it just feels good to be doing something. Then, outside of school I’ve finally finally got myself together and found a ballet class to go to in Folkestone, on a Wednesday morning. I’ve been there twice now and I LOVE IT. Sadly, they have half term now, so the next lesson will be in the beginning of January and I’m already looking forward to it!

As you can see, I’ve been very busy and adding to that, I’ve also been researching and applying for universities and drama schools in England (and one in Scotland). I haven’t sent any of the applications off yet but I will probably send the first ones tomorrow because I’ve finally filled out everything and decided on the universities I want to apply to. There’s something very stressful about universities and the thought of all the auditions I’ll have to do!! But now that I have the monologue and ballet class I feel like I’ll hopefully be prepared enough!!

Random story: On mondays and tuesdays I need to get up at six thirty, and as mentioned in my last blog entry, I didn’t hear my alarm once. So now, with my new and really loud alarm tone, I felt very safe until last tuesday, when I woke up more than an hour after I was supposed to get up. It’s a bit scary how quickly I get so used to an alarm that it doesn’t even wake me up anymore (I’m not sure I’m too pleased about my “turning off the alarm in my sleep” skill either). So I was a bit late for school that day and now my alarm is so loud, I almost jump every time I hear it because IT IS SO LOUD.

Christmas is obviously adding to the stress slightly as well because there are so many people around everywhere and because I still need to buy some presents!! But not this weekend: Because I’ll be in Switzerland for actual Christmas, we had an early Christmas Dinner with Fran and Darren today, including opening presents. It was a lovely day and after eating, we watched Gremlins, which was funny because I just have this vague memory of it because I know I’ve watched it before, years ago. So we had a lovely day today.

This weekend has been awesome in general: On friday evening we went to an Unlimited Screening of the new Jumanji movie (Unlimited screening means it’s only for people with an unlimited card and it’s some days before everyone else can see it). The movies was fabulous and really funny, exactly what I needed after an exhausting school week! Then on Saturday, Aniela and I went to London, to the Royal Albert Hall, where we watched Beauty and the Beast with live orchestra. It was absolutely amazing and it just gets more emotional with live music. Yep, I had a great weekend!!

And no, I have not forgotten it: Although I haven’t made as much progress on my story as I did in September and October, I STILL WROTE QUITE A BIT! My word count is 119’789 words at the moment (I’ll probably get it to 120’000 tonight) and I’m still loving it, it’s just really relaxing for me and I can’t quite believe how far I’ve gotten in the story because for so many years, I’ve just kind of developed it in my head, so it’s just so exciting for me to see it all come together now and to see how far my characters have come and how they’ve changed!!!! I’m also dreading finishing it! There’s still quite a bit of story left, so I shouldn’t think about that yet but still, it’s gonna be quite sad once all of Lydia’s story is told and there’s no more because you obviously grow to really care about your characters (the ones that I don’t kill off anyway! Just kidding(maybe) πŸ˜‰ )!

Before the picture of the week (months?!?), I just need to tell you all to go and watch the movie “Wonder” because it is an absolutely amazing movie and it was so good that I forgot to eat my m&ms in the cinema because I was so taken with the movie!!! Also, because this might well be my last entry in 2017, I wish everyone a fabulous Christmas and New Year and I’LL BE BACK IN 2018!!!

I found it quite hard to choose a picture but because it’s so cold and rainy all the time, I felt like this picture would be very fitting:

This is me right after coming home, IT’S SO DARK AND COLD OUTSIDE!!

Loads of Selfies!

October 15th, 2017 by Pfluma

Bonjour everyone!

You might be surprised to find me writing another entry so soon. One of the reasons I’m writing it is because I should do homework but am a bit lazy… And because I’m just really feeling in the mood to write another entry!

I’m really enjoying school at the moment! On Mondays, we always work on Rent and I love it. Last monday we learned some new choreography (we learned some tango steps for one song, it was fabulous) and I think Rent is going to be great!

Before I continue talking about school, a little story: I’ve had the same song as my alarm for about half a year. And slowly, I kind of started going back to sleep after hearing it (this weekend I didn’t even wake up anymore, I just slept through it). Because of that on Tuesday morning, I woke up ten minutes after I was supposed to leave the house. But the fabulous thing was that, because I’m a very organised person, I always leave some spare time, so I have a backup plan. Because of that I didn’t have to hurry at all and managed to get to school on time (and even found time to get a coffee!) This made me very happy and I had a great morning!

Now back to what we’re doing in school: In our dance lessons, we’re doing a really fun project. We’re going to do a kind of music video around our school, showing different stereotypes at school. So this means we learn small sections of choreography (one as cool kids, one as nerds, as emos and so on…) and in November we’ll actually film it, so I’m excited to see the final video in the end!

In Tony’s lessons, we’re working on several things. One of them is acting through song, which is great because it will help me to not just stand and sing a song but act it as well. We’re also doing quite a lot of research but I love it because I find it extremely interesting! Just the other day, I had to research Andrew Lloyd Webber, which I thought was great and we’re also learning about different types of musicals (Jukebox musicals, concept musicals, book musicals and so on, there are loads!). And because we know more about that now, we get to sing many different songs in studio class, which I love too, because I get to know so many new and awesome songs and act them properly as well!

But you’re never alone on the bus for a long time, at some point someone else will get on!

When I’m not at school I go to the cinema a lot (so many good movies coming out at the moment!) which is just so relaxing and awesome!

When I do the washing up I like to listen to musical songs so her have some late night washing up impressions:

Today we also went to the clifftop cafe again and I took some really nice pictures, the sea looked beautiful.

Because I’m still writing a lot and I plan to keep doing so, I decided to always put some writing updates at the end of an entry (before the picture of the week) so here are some writing fun facts:

  • My main character’s name is Lydia (and this is all you shall know about the story itself for now)
  • I’ve written over 93’047 words so far (that’s 137 A4 pages)!
  • I have a playlist with 109 songs that I listen to while I write.
  • I sometimes find myself googling odd things when I have to research things for my story.
  • I usually write around 1000 words a day (obviously it can be a lot more if I have time and feel like writing more!)
  • I think it takes me about an hour to write 1000 words but I’m not sure to be honest because I don’t really notice the passing of time when I write!
  • I love when my characters develop a life of their own and totally surprise me by doing things that I didn’t plan.

I hope you enjoyed those facts, I’ll probably try and put some facts in every entry from now on, if I can think of good new ones!

Aaand here have the two pictures of the week, this time featuring Dan the Dinosaur!

 

 

 

Writing and writing and more writing!

October 7th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLO

Yes I am still alive! But sadly, the wifi is not most of the time which made it pretty much impossible for me to write a blog entry! But luckily it should be sorted in some weeks (and is obviously working at the moment).

I really have to go by pictures here because I don’t really remember everything I did! The followingΒ pictures tell me that I’ve been to London to see Jesus Christ Superstar in the end of September! It was absolutely brilliant and we were really really lucky with the weather seeing how it had been the week before we went. But there wasn’t a single drop of rain that evening and with a warm blanket, it wasn’t even that cold!

I’ve also still been writing like a mad person, at the moment my story is over 80’000 words long (which is 3000 words longer than the first harry potter book if you want something to compare that to!) I’m enjoying it so much, it’s a lovely way to end my day by writing some words every evening before I go to bed. So here have loads of writing impressions!

At some point, we had auditions for Rent! My auditions went well and I got good feedback from the teachers, although I didn’t get a main role. But still, I have a smaller role and I’m Vocal Captain which means I get to tell people off if they don’t sing the right harmonies. So I’m still really excited because Rent is just a fabulous musical and being in the ensemble is great fun too!!

Gru the pig helped me with my auditions (the teachers loved her!)

Last wednesday, I was asked to play the piano at an open evening of the Canterbury Academy. I basically just played for an hour at the entrance of the school, so people had something to listen to when they arrived. It was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed playing again and because I wasn’t the centre of the attention, there wasn’t any sort of pressure, either, so it was just great! The cutest thing that happened was a little kid running up to the piano wanting to play too. The parents apologised a lot when it interrupted me playing but I just thought it was adorable!

And before the picture of the week, some random pictures:

And here’s the picture of the week, it might look slightly familiar!

Be Lu!! Yes I’m still being Lu! πŸ˜‰

 

I AM BACK!!!

September 17th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLOOOOOOOO

DID YOU MISS ME?

I personally didn’t miss myself but then I do see myself everyday so that’s a bit different but who knows? πŸ˜€

Well, I have been back in England for two weeks now and I have grown used to everything again really quickly!

But let’s start at the beginning with a little story! (Yes, this is going to be in story form again (partly), simply because I’ve been writing a lot those last two weeks, I’ve written over 20’000 words on one of my stories!)

Once upon a time…

Luna went to the airport and bid goodbye to her family before embarking on her newest, dangerous quest:

Getting to Folkestone without losing any suitcases or missing trains (or planes).

Luna managed to get through security checks unscathed and then happily sat down, waiting for her plane to arrive. She was about to start listening to her motivating main character playlist on her phone, when she got spoken to by a smiling woman. Luna immediately got suspicious but decided to not yet reveal her superhero powers. It was the right choice. The woman had a simple quest for Luna, she wanted to know her opinion of the Great Zurich Airport!

No problem! Luna quickly filled out the questions and handed them back to the woman. And it was worth the time, as Luna got delicious Swiss Chocolate as a gift! Yay!

Feeling great because of the fulfilled quest, Luna spent most of the flight sleeping and listening to music to regain her strength for the rest of the demanding journey. At the airport, Luna, among hundreds of other heroes, found her way to the train station, where she had to wait in a queue for half an hour to get what she wanted: A ticket for the train. She did consider using her magic powers but then decided that it wouldn’t be fair on the other heroes, so she stayed in the queue and when she finally had her ticket, she went on the train where she spent the next hour, looking heroic.

Then, Luna arrived at London St. Pancras Station. Now she was on familiar territory, as St. Pancras had been the start of many of Luna’s great adventures. She got on another train, which was another great achievement (Let’s not forget here that Luna mastered the whole journey with a massive 20 kg suitcase and hand luggage!).

Then, finally, Luna arrived in Folkestone where she got her reward. The thing she had been waiting for all day:

A cup of tea.

And she lived happily ever after!

Chocolate Present at the airport!

That was the story of my journey but now let’s get serious! I arrived in Folkestone and it was absolutely lovely to see Aniela again and we did actually have a cup of tea and caught up on what the other one had been doing over summer. In the evening, we watched X Factor which had just started again and next day (Sunday) we watched Victoria as well. It’s so nice to watch these shows again because I still remember them from last year! We also went to the Clifftop CafΓ© on Sunday and I can tell you, the view from there is still as beautiful as the last time I was there!

I missed Scooonees

 

Beautiful view from the Clifftop CafΓ©

After a relaxing weekend I had to go back to school to enrol on Monday! I can tell you, it was much easier this year! The whole enrolling took about half an hour (and I actually managed to get my timetable that day!!) I spent the rest of the day meeting up with Theo and I was very happy to see him again!

Back on the bus!

On Tuesday and Wednesday I didn’t have school yet, which was really nice. Because I already have my Unlimited Card I obviously had to use it on my free day, so I went to see Everything Everything and The Limehouse Golem at the cinema in Ashford (it was great to be back there and both movies were very good!). Wednesday I just chilled at home (to recover from the cinema πŸ˜‰ ).

Happy on the train after the cinema!!

On Thursday, school started and it was quite annoying, actually. We still have to wrap up some Units from last year, which basically means loads of written work (not for me, because I finished most of it). But it’s still quite boring… So school hasn’t been that interesting these first two weeks but there’s one awesome thing that happened:

This year we’re doing a musical with all the Musical Theatre students (year 12 and year 13, which means we’re 50 people) and we got told which musical it is last Monday.

The Musical iiiiis….

Rent!

Rent? You might ask now. To be honest, I didn’t know Rent (I obviously knew it existed and kind of what it was about, but I had never listened to it) but I quickly changed that fact by buying the CD, listening to it and then watching the movie. Let me tell you, it’s totally depressing but absolutely amazing and I really love it! So I am very excited for that.

And hopefully, as soon as we finish all the written work, we’ll start doing more practical things as well. I am very excited for everything that’s to come this year. We’re gonna be very busy in school, I think! πŸ˜€

Other than that I haven’t done that much because I’ve just been relaxing in front of the TV or writing my story (I might have also gone back to the cinema to see The Limehouse Golem again…), so that’s it for now!!

Not quite, wait, I just need to mention here that the weather is really crazy at the moment! It’s really cold for September (especially compared to last year) and it rains all the time (but then it’s really sunny five minutes later) and it’s just very odd!

RAIN

Here’s my picture of the week, it’s the headshot we had taken at school last monday! πŸ™‚

By the way, this was the reason for the make up practise πŸ˜‰

West End Live!

June 27th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLO

First, I do apologize for not writing anything in ages but I genuinely sat down to write an entry last week. Then I checked my phone and realised that I barely had any new pictures and didn’t really know what to say either. Buut now I think I have enough together to write something new!

So first let me tell you what I’ve been up to in school: That won’t surprise you but we have been working on Mamma Mia a lot! πŸ˜‰ Rehearsals can get very exhausting but I still love learning the choreographies and harmonies! We are making a lot of progress and I Β think it’s going to be great!. I am soo excited for the performance!! )It’s already in three weeks!!

In a bit more than a week, we’ll also have our recitals (everyone sings two songs). I will sing Please Don’t Make Me Love You from Dracula and The Witch from Big Fish, which are both awesome songs. I love singing them and have been working on them for a long time now, so I am very excited for that too (and I’ll hopefully get someone to film it, so you can see it too!) πŸ˜€

That’s that for school! When I’m not there, I am usually quite lazy and watch a lot of tv shows but every now and then I do leave the house!

Once for example, I left the house to go to Theo’s to… WATCH TV πŸ˜€ We did a Harry Potter Marathon and it was awesome!! (and over 20 hours long) I stayed strong and didn’t fall asleep at all (Theo slept for an hour or so) and it was worth being totally tired the evening after!

On one weekend, Nora, Aniela and I went to the beach to have a barbeque and that was lovely too. I took some funny stone pictures then!

Nora and I also made muffins at one point! πŸ˜€

We went to a different beach as well where you can find parts of little fossils and spent some time looking for them. We found quite a lot!

Then we also had this one week where it was just too hot and the first thing I’d do when coming home after school is take shower as cold as possible (You cannot imagine how hot it got on the bus in the afternooon!!!!)

IT WAS TOO HOT (Also look how long my hair is!)

But luckily it cooled down a bit and now I’m fnally coming to most awesome part of this blog entry:

Last weekend, Theo and I went to London to watch West End Live. West End Live is a FREE (how amazing is that!?!?) two day long open air event and there’s just this big stage in Trafalgar Square and there are performances all day long (mostly West End Musicals like Wicked, Phantom of the Opera Les Mis etc) as well as performers doing solos. IT WAS GREAT AND SOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!! I LOOOOOVED IT SOOO MUUUUUUUUUCH!!!!

And because we already were in London, I felt like I had to watch a full musical as well so Theo and I went to see Book of Mormon (I’ve seen it three times already now and I still want to see it again and again because it’s the most funny and best thing ever!) πŸ˜‰

So that was my weekend!!

And now comes the part of our story that gets a little bit sad: (that’s a book of mormon quote by the way)

So yesterday was Nora’s last evening (she doesn’t leave England until Thursday but she’s spending the last few days at her friend’s place). It was quite sad and the house does feel quite empty at the moment. But luckily I’ll meet her in Canterbury tomorrow to properly say goodbye. I will miss her a lot!!

So here’s the picture of the week (month?) in honour of Nora!

 

I’m too lazy to think of a title

June 4th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLOO

First of all, for my fans πŸ˜‰ , who are sad because there hasn’t been a new entry, sorry! The first week I didn’t have a lot to tell and after that I was too busy to write one! But now the time has finally come!

The problem is that I don’t remember that much now, so I’ll have to rely on the pictures I took!

At some point in the last three weeks, I went to the cinema again (I LOOOVE MY UNLIMITED CAARD)

We also played a really intense game of Monopoly!

On one Sunday, we went to the American Gardens (I don’t know why they’re called that, though). They’re close to where Aniela has her bees so it was really easy to get there. Look at the looovely pictures I took!

On the last Wednesday before halfterm, we had another performance in the evening. We performed our Street Dance and the choreographies for the London performance (as a final rehearsal). It was so incredibly hot that day, it was awful! And we had to dance! IT WAS TOO HOT!

And theeeeeen on Saturday, the 27th of May! Finally we had our performance in London! In a proper theatre! A big one! IT WAS SO EXCITING!!

And after that, after 9 months (9 MONTHS!) I finally saw (part of) my family again!!! We spent a few days in London and it was just lovely and great!! We went to Camden Market, the Harry Potter studio tour, to Pizza Hut and to watch Book of Mormon! It was great!

Oh, and I also found the TARDIS!

I also saw Phantom of the Opera again (third time now) with Emil and it was amazing to just catch up with and spend some time with my awesoooome brother!

Here have another Clifftop Cafe picture because they’re just always nice!

That’s it already! I do apologise for this blog being really short and weird (at least there are nice pictures in it!) but it is quite difficult to remember what I did three weeks ago! πŸ˜‰

And don’t worry, I did not forget the picture of the week:

 

 

 

 

THE LONGEST WEDNESDAY IN HISTORY

May 14th, 2017 by Pfluma

BONJOUR

This week was so extremely busy for me that I actually have looaaads to tell you this time!

The week before that was quite normal, though, I just watched a lot of tv and had an exam AND a controlled assessment on the same day (Friday). On Saturday, we also went to a shopping centre which was nice.

BUT BACK TO MY BUSY WEEK!!

On Monday, we had a dance rehearsal the whole day for our performance in London at the end of May. This meant we just danced the whole morning (very exhausting). In the afternoon, we had to tie-dye shirts as costumes for one of the choreographies. It was quite funny, although I got colour on my hands and my skin didn’t like it much! It also looked like I had huge bruises and Nora and Aniela were really worried for a second before I started laughing! πŸ™‚

Then, on Tuesday, we had rehearsals for our minimusicals the whole morning. We tried to rehearse as best as we could without one of the main characters (Kai, who plays Freddie, had X-Factor auditions πŸ™‚ ). I also accidentally broke the retractable knive… Oops

Now, let’s talk about Wednesday….

I had to be at school at 9 for final rehearsals for our minimusicals. We did that the whole morning and sadly, I broke the knife (that Robyn had fixed the night before) again… Oops, I did it again… Luckily, she got her Mum to buy a new one, so Susan didn’t have to beat Freddie to death with her fists or her cane!

We finished at about halfpast 12, which gave me half an hour to have lunch before I had my second English exam from 1 to 3…

Getting ready to perfooorm (but feeling exhausted after English)

When I finished that exam, I had about an hour to get ready for the minimusical performance that was assessed. Then we performed it (it went quite well, although I was really exhausted by the end of it) and watched some of the other performances.

And after that, no, I still wasn’t allowed to go home, we had to do our final controlled assessment (just write 800 words about the performance and the rehearsal process) from what must have been around halfpast 6 to halfpast 7…

After that, I went to get some food, then took the bus home. Because it was already late (I left Canterbury at 9) there weren’t many busses in Folkestone and I just missed one, so I had to walk home (for almost half an hour…)

Byebye Suuuusaaan

So, when I finally came home, I felt sooooooooooooooooooooooo tired, I just fell into bed. I can’t remember ever having been so exhausted before!

Thursday and Friday were both normal school days and when I didn’t have school, I mainly used the time to relax and regain my energy!

Tired bus selfie

Saturday was an aaaweeeesooooome day!! I went to London in the morning, where I met….

Melanie!!

It was lovely to see her again, although she did force me to take pictures of her and Big Ben! πŸ˜‰ While we were waiting to take pictures, we saw a couple that must have just married.

This alone wouldn’t have been worth mentioning in my blog, but the funny thing was, that, as soon as the bride left, another couple went in front of us and all of the sudden, the guy drops to down on his knees and proposes to the girl (She said yes). It was really cute and Melanie and I had to laugh because it was just a really funny situation!

The couple

After that we had lunch in Pizza Hut and just talked. It was great.

Apple juice in Pizza Hut

And theeeen…. It was musical time!!

I chose Mamma Mia because I thought that it would definitely help me for our performance and it was really great seeing a show, when you basically know the whole script! I just love ABBA music, so it was really enjoyable, although almost a bit too loud (I was close to a speaker).

After that amazing day, I just spent today at home, actually learning lines and songs for Mamma Mia. πŸ™‚

And here the picture of the week, obviously featuring Susan!

SUSAN IS NOT AMUSED

Mamma Mia and Mini Musicals!

April 30th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLO (my name is Elder Price and I would like to share with you the most amazing book… NO LUNA STOP SINGING THE BOOK OF MORMON)

(I’m just warning you now, I’m sorry that some of the pictures are really big and some a bit distorted but it somehow didn’t let me do anything with them and I was just TOO LAZY to find out how or upload them again!) πŸ˜‰

I wish I had a lot to tell you but honestly, lazy luna is still around!

She has been quite busy and bingewatched all of Lucifer in a very short time and is now bingewatching Sense8 and almost finished as well, although she only started Β watching it some days ago… Oops…

But!! When forced to go outside, she still manages to take some nice pictures for her fans (aka family that is reading the blog).

Lazy Luna also went to the cinema again, she just could not help herself because the temptation is just always there now!

But now enough of Lazy Luna! Because as soon as she arrives in school, she turns into Less Lazy Luna!

Rehearsal time!

Less Lazy Luna, while still being quite lazy, actually does stuff every now and then! She sings and dances and acts!

School at the moment mostly means either working on Mamma Mia or on our Mini Musicals (which I chose as a title because it’s a nice alliteration).

EVIL TIME IN OUR MINI MUSICAL

Mamma Mia is definitely going to be fun, although I do have to admit that it is very cheesy and therefore sometimes a bit cringy to act! And in choreographies, I need to learn two parts because I’ll be Rosie in one performance and in the ensemble in the other one, which is quite challenging at times! πŸ™‚

I don’t have any Mamma Mia pictures, sadly, but I made some screenshots (you’ve already seen three of them) from a rehearsal video for our mini musical (that doesn’t have a name yet).

And so I have a bit more to write about, I’ll just tell you what our mini musical is about. We made up the story ourselves, although it is inspired by the Truman Show! In case you didn’t know, I play the evil mother, which is great fun! Here’s the story…

Once upon a time….

There was a girl named Paige. Her whole life was a musical and she sang and danced the whole day. She was very happy.

Mother (me) and Daughter, everyone’s happy!

What she didn’t know, though, was that her life was a tv show! Everyone in her life was an actor: Her boyfriend, her friends, her mother… And most of these actors didn’t even like Paige, they hated their job! But they signed a contract, so they had to stay. On top of that, they were scared of the person controlling the tv show, only known as The Voice.

Annoyed actors!

But Freddie, Paige’s “boyfriend” really loved Paige, so he chose to tell her the truth. Paige was shocked, but still decided to escape to the real world with Freddie. Her mom, Susan (that’s me) was not happy at all with that, though, and tried to stop them from leaving without having to stop the show.

She might even have succeeded but sadly, she started getting into singing her solo way too much, giving Freddie and Paige a chance to escape!

Holding that note for as loong as possible

She then sent the actors to the real world to get Paige back. Paige, meanwhile was shocked at how horrible the real world actually was. Homeless people, smoke, grey sky… The musical world was much better! The actors thought the same, realising that they preferred the fake world. They then lured Paige back by singing and dancing for her. Freddie reluctantly agreed to come back with her because he didn’t want to leave her. But then: Before he could go back, Susan showed up, revealing that she was The Voice, the person that controlled everything!

And she felt that she had to get rid of Freddie because he was the only one that might stop Paige from going back and being happy in the fake world. And because Susan was a very crazy and evil person, she killed Freddie.

EVIL MOTHER (I will have a retractable knife in the actual performance)

Paige witnessed this and was devastated. Susan did not really have any pity with her, though, and told Paige that she should go back and remember that they were still a family and so on. (in song form obviously!)

Paige did go back to the tv show but not willingly which is why Susan had to force her to still sing and dance happily (for example by putting her in handcuffs).

But hey! At least Susan didn’t have to cancel her tv show! And they (mostly meaning Susan) lived happily ever after!

Wait? Where’s the happy end?!

THE END!

Oh and here the picture of the week!

I saw that cute owl in a shop in Sandwich and it immediately reminded me of… MYSELF!

HOLIDAY HAPPINESS

April 17th, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLO

Do you want to know what I did during the last two weeks?

DO YOU?

YEEEEEEEES!

Because I’m not in the mood for a “normal” blog entry (on tuesday I did this, on wednesday this etc.) I’m going to split my holidays in different poems!

HAVE FUN READING THEM! (IF YOU DON’T HAVE FUN WHEN YOU READ THEM WE HAVE A PROBLEM!)

LAZY LUNA

Once upon a time

There was a girl called Lu

She really liked to rhyme

So she shall rhyme for you!

School was really exhausting

So Luna needed rest

She got up late in the morning

And did what she does best:

Sleep and read and watch tv

And sing and write and drink some tea

A 89 days Danish streak

That’s what Lu did for one whole week!

Lazy Luna in her natural environment

THE QUEEN OF STONES

What to do when you’re at the beach?

Swim or eat or write a speech?

“No!” Lu says, “that’s not the way!”

There’s a much better way to spend your day!

First, eat some scones

Then focus on the stones!

Build a tower

Hour after hour

And feel the power

Of the stones!

ANIMALS

Lu went to a magical place

called Kent Life

It was like being in Newt’s case

full of animals and wildlife

There were little lambs and pigs

And goats and owls and chicks

They were all really cute

Especially the goat that really wanted food!

THE WARDROBE

There’s a new friend in Luna’s room

It’s a lovely wardrobe with loads of space

It gives her room a sense of grace

It’s big enough to consume

All of Lu’s clothes and more

And it even has a door!

LONDON

London

Where the Musicals are

Where cars and busses are at war

Where thousands of people live and breathe

Where the underground is full of thieves

That’s where Lu spent a day

Having loads of fun

YAY!

NATURE

The sea is blue

Grass is green

Flowers: Yellow, Purple, Red

But I never knew

Β That the sea can be green too

(That’s a lie if you know what I mean

I just needed a rhyme to redeem

my abilities as a poet

Though after this I dread

That my reputation is dead)

CINEMA

Lu loves going to the cinema

And at least twice a month she goes

so she got herself an unlimited card

And can now go as often as she likes

once, twice, a hundred times…

Who knows?

THE SHUNNED PICTURES

“Luna”, some of her pictures said,

“You promised a poem every one of us’d get!”

Luna felt bad

The pictures were mad

So here’s the poem for the lonely pictures on her phone

they’re now really happy cause they know that they are known

PICTURE OF THE WEEK

There are many pictures but one always wins

It’s funny and awesome, the king of the kings

Beautiful, special and really sleek

Yes! It’s the picture of the week!

This water had an important message for me: BE LU! BECAUSE LU IS AWESOME πŸ˜‰

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEE

April 2nd, 2017 by Pfluma

HELLOOOOOOOOOOO

Sooo, on the 25th of March, we (Aniela, Fran, Darren, Nora and me) celebrated my birthday with lovely foood, an awesome caaake and Sweeney Todd (because I really wanted to watch a musical!).

I got so many lovely presents, have a look:

On Sunday, it was mother’s day in England, so we went to have lunch, it was really nice!

Monday was extremely exhausting! I had my English speaking exam (which just consisted of me talking about musicals and answering questions about musicals, so it was easy, really.) Then we had our Musical Theatre History Performance which didn’t go that well but now I’m just glad it’s over!

I stayed awake that evening until my birthday officially started!

My birthday was lovely, I got so many lovely messages and presents! I bought the three things I wanted and went to see Beauty and the Beast again in the afternoon! In the evening I had a great dinner with Anieal and Nora and we watched Fantastic Beasts and where to find them!

Theeen on wednesday, we had a performance in the evening (which was our assessment) and I got picked to sing a solo as well (that email was a great birthday present). My solo went really well and the two dances went okay as well. Some of my classmates were very eager to do my make up so I let them and had some fun while taking it off!

On Thursday, I suddenly found myself alone in the bus!

On Friday, I made awesome salad

This weekend, the weather was lovely so Aniela and I went to the clifftop cafΓ© twice!

We also went to see the bees twice, so here have the picture of the week!

I COULDN’T GET MY HAIR OUT OF MY FACE!
