Long Live, and it’s all coming back

This is my BFF Hannah. Her clothes match my blog.

We arived at the Junior High with a whole team of last years students. The dedicated students that brought me mounds of joy last year. I haven’t talked to most of the people on this team in a while, but as soon as we walked through those doors as almni, it was as we never left. Still family, but as teaschers this time.
Hannah and I got there first, and as we were waiting a couple of friends walked in that we hadn’t seen in a while. Well, of course we ran as fast as we could so that we could exchange hugs. Well as I was runing in my cowboy boots I rolled my ankle. Hard. I lymped over to them and exchanged hugs. I shook off the pain. Maybe it was the fact that I was so excited to see them, or that I was so excited to relive the memories of Dinner Theatre, or the fact that I am a gymnast and I am used to shaking off pain, but none the less I shook it off and acted like it was all good and dandy. And it was! Well…kinda… helping was a blast today. I remember the feeling of stress at this point in time last year, and all the help the high school students were to help me get ready to perform. Today we were the ones who got to be the directores and we were the ones to help the students fix their scenes. It was fun. I even performed my scene for everybody and I can’t even tell you how good that felt!
After that we made ginger bread houses {actually we made hotglued-grahm-cracker-houses} It’s a tradition with our family, and the Daniels family. We tried real ginger bread one year, but with 9 kids, grahm crackers are the way to go. We built some funky houses this year! It was fun.
Well, here I am in my bed icing my swolen ankle. Yippe! Probubly sprained.

So I had a request by the girl in the picture above to do a post disecting a song that is very dear to us as a theatre class so here it is!

Long Live
By Taylor Swift
 
 

I still remember this moment
{Dinner Theatre 2011}
In the back of my mind
{I am always thinking about it}
The time we stood with our shaking hands
{Right before we performed}
The crowds in stands went wild
{HUZZAH!}
We were the kings and the queen
{Litterally, we had a queen}
And they read off our names
{As we walked in at the start of every performance}
The night you danced like you knew our lives would never be the same
{At the end of every performance…we danced.}

You held your head like a hero

{Because we were confident, and ready.}
On a history book page
{Because Shakespeare wrote the best history books.}
It was the end of a decade
{Our 10th year in school (including Kindergarten)}
but the start of an age
{The start of our lives.}

Long live the walls we crashed through

{We all had to get out of our comfort zones}
While the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
{For a moment every eye was on us}
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
{Never forget the things we did}
And bring on all the pretenders, one day we will be remembered
{We are actors, and don’t for get us}

I said, remember this feeling

{The feelings we had about this class}
I passed the pictures around
{I scrolled through my facebook pictures}
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
{watching dinner theatre in years past}
Wishing for right now
{The day when we get to perform}

We are the kings and the queens

{We had a Queen Elizabeth}
You traded your baseball cap for a crown
{shakespearean costumes}
When they gave us our trophies
{Applause}
And we held them up for our town
{Final bow}

And the cynics were outraged

{The principal didn’t like us too much}
Screaming, this is absurd
{Because we didn’t do sports}
‘Cause for a moment a band of thieves
{We stole the show from the athletes}
In ripped-up jeans got to rule the world
{It was all about us that night}
Long live the walls we crashed through
{We all had to get out of our comfort zones}
While the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
{For a moment every eye was on us}
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
{Never forget the things we did}
And bring on all the pretenders, I’m not afraid
{Bring all the actors together. I’m not afraid}

Long live all the mountains we moved

{We accomplished some pretty big things}
I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you
{This was the time of my life}
I was screaming, long live the look on your face
{That look of pure joy. We all had it}
Bring on all the pretenders, we will be remembered
{Never forget this acting class}

Hold on to spinning around

{The final dance}
Confetti falls to the ground
{these moments become memories}
May these memories break our fall
{When this has to end, it will live on in our memories}

And you take a moment
Promise me this
That you’ll stand by me forever
But if God forbid fate should step in

And force us into a goodbye
If you have children someday
When they point to the pictures
Please tell them my name

Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how I hope they shine

{my final wish to all my theatre friends}

Long live the walls we crashed through

{The things we accomplished}
I had the time of my life with you
{This was one of the best prarts of my life}
Long live the walls we crashed through
{We all had to get out of our comfort zones}
While the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
{For a moment every eye was on us}
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
{Never forget the things we did}
And bring on all the pretenders, I’m not afraid
{Bring all the actors together. I’m not afraid}

Singing, long live all the mountains we moved

{All the things we went through}
I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you
{I had the time of my life overcoming fears with you}
And long, long live the look on your face
{That look when we realized we were finially done}
And bring on all the pretenders, one day we will be remembered
{One day we will be back together, and we will remember the memories}
Now if you want to know about the song for the rest of the year listen to this one
 
 
 
 
 
So here is the story of my 9th grade year. The year I became a theatre nerd. That time may have passed, and I may never do theatre in school again, but I will never forget, and it will always be a part of me.
