Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse











The cast of Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse in New York city met the press today with a little preview.


Goodness, how I love this movie. And now it is a STAGE SHOW!!!! Of course they changed lyrics/added songs and characters and stuff (as expected) and honestly, it doesn't seem bad!


And yes. Yes that IS my boyfriend Jeremy Jordan as strike leader Jack Kelly. Don't his arms look nice?

Linger Trailer

This is the video trailer for Linger by Maggie Stiefvater. Linger is the sequel to Shiver. I got Shiver for my birthday on Wednesday and I am almost finished (I am trying to not race through it, and it is difficult).

I have read Maggie Stiefvater's other books Lament: the Faerie Queen's Deception and it's sequel Ballad: a Gathering of Faerie and they were both amazing.

I am so excited for Linger to come out! Anyway, Maggie Stiefvater made this trailer with paper cutouts, frame by painstaking frame and it is absolutely beautiful. Watch it, you won't regret it!

The beach

Went to the beach yesterday with Jessie, Becca, Emma, Anthony, Richard, and James. Sooooo much fun. We made a fire and roasted things like hot dogs and marshmellows. Jessie, Emma, Rich and Ant went in the water and body surfed the huge waves.

I did not. I am not an idiot that seeks frost bite.

California dreeeeaminnCollapse )

Then Rich, Jessie and I sat huddled on a lifegaurd stand for a while while the rest of them played tackle keep away with a football. We didn't even realize that they got kicked of the beach when it was too late to legally be there anymore. I thought they had just taken the stuff to the car.

Overall, a really fun day.

I'm just bummed because I have to go to work tonight. Bleh.

*sigh*

It's been a while hasn't it? This is probably going to be a slightly boring post. I'm not really back in the so-called groove of writing journals. Also this is being written with my iPhone.

Lately I've been really really wanting a few things:

1) a new job.
It's not that I don't like my job. And it's not that I'm not grateful for it. Maybe I'm just restless. I don't know. But I know that I don't want to be a cashier at Target for the rest of my life. Or even for the rest of this year really. I would love to work at the renovated Fox Performing Arts Center.

2) to lose weight.
I'm just tired of looking like this. I want to be normal already. Ugh.

3) a boy.
Well I am a girl. And who wants to be alone for the rest of their life? I guess that should really be MY boy, not a boy. I just want God to bring him to me already. Ya know?


And moving on... I've gotten into a couple new fandoms lately, but I'm trying not to become obsessed like I normally do. The fandoms are:

1) Leon Jackson
I guess he's not really a fandom, but you know what I mean. In case you don't know Leon is a lovely Scottish singer. He won X Factor in the uk in 2007. And I love him.

Picture!Collapse )

2) Andrew-Lee Potts
Again, I know, not really a fandom. But helloooo, he's lovely! I saw him in SyFy channel's mini series Alice. He played Hatter. It was amazing.

Pictures!Collapse )

3) Primeval
Okay so obviously I want to see more of Andrew, so I watched his tv show. (and by the way, why does the UK get such better entertainment than the US?). I am now loving this show! Plus, I mean come on, Andrew-Lee Potts!!

And Picture! Collapse )

And oh yeah. Jonathan Groff is gay. I'm really having a lot of emotions about that right now.

Woot!!

I got an iphone! So I can finally use lj again! Btw I adore this thing.

Anyway, I am sooooo sad. Jonathan Groff is gay. He came out a few days ago. I was so hoping he wasn't gay so that I could move to New York, be in a Broadway show with him, he would fall in love with me and we would get married. But alas...and now I am broken hearted.

Oh, my new phone's name is Sirius Black. He is purtty and shiny black and lovely!!

Okay

This is my first post about my writing process. And I have decided to make it public. I don't know why. Anyway, here goes.

Up until now I haven't really posted anything about the fact that I write. Other than my old fanfiction link that is now removed. I think it is because I suffer from a whole lot of insecurities and I don't like to let people in too easily. But someone said that you have to be a writer to be a writer, so tell people that you are a writer. Okay. My name is Jennifer Quinones and I'm a writer.


That's actually a little scary. Do you remember the first time you told someone you were a writer? Not that you wanted to write. But that you were a writer?

Anyway (I'm working on not using that word as much, I swear), I have been working on my first novel for a while now. Mostly just planning and stuff like that. And then I started writing page one. I had to write it out by hand because I didn't have a computer and it's been a little slow going. I'm only on page 59. And that is of hand written, lined notebook paper. Now that I have a computer I have started transferring it all to typed pages, but now I have this annoying block. And the stupid internet keeps distracting me. It's really pathetic.

But I am a little proud of myself. 59 hand written pages is more than I have ever done on ANY other project. I always start things and then I think of something new and start that and so on. But this time when I have an idea I just write it down in a separate notebook and continue with what I am on.

I have also never been as passionate about any other project. And obviously that is the key. I truly love my story and my characters. I mean, I loved my other ideas too, otherwise I would have trashed them from the beginning. But this story has stuck with me for so long. I had actually started writing it before (it was going in a different direction then) and my computer died before I had a chance to print a hard copy or even back it up. This idea and story has stayed with me even when I as suffering from horrible depression and didn't even want to THINK about writing. It was always in the back of my mind, nudging me to let it out.

I really feel like, if I just finish it, even if it isn't good, I'll have finished SOMETHING and it will be easier to finish other things.

The thing that really scares me though, is what if I'm not a good enough writer to tell this story? What if I should get someone with a lot more talent to do it justice. I love this story so much that I don't want to be the one to write it if I won't do it to it's full potential. I just want this story out there, I think it needs to be told.

Can I do it? What if I can't? That is such a scary thought, because I really really want to be the person to write this story. I just hope I'm good enough.

Wow

It's been a long while since I posted anything. It feels weird. But anyway. Here's what's up:

I've been reading a lot (esp Jane Austen, I love Northanger Abbey and Mr. Tilney *sigh*)

I found out something about my family that I had already guessed, but once it was confirmed, I felt sick to my stomach and I wished I didn't know.

Went on a roadtrip thing to Texas for my sister to audition for Spider Man the musical. Don't even get me started on their shady-ness and their publicity stunt. Using poor, hopeful girls just because they can. I am so mad.

I loved Texas though. It is so beautiful (besides like, El Paso, no offence if you live there). I want to move to Austin or Texas hill country.

I turned 21. I don't drink, so it doesn't really matter.

Saw Celtic Thunder in November in LA, going to see them again in November.

Eh, actually, not so much going on.

Okaaayyyyyyyy

I'm really nervous. I have an interview for a job tomorrow. It's just at the Target where my aunt works, but hey a job is a job. And I love Target. I'm just really nrevous about the interview part. I'm not sure I do too well with those.

I am AMAZING at tests and stuff, just not...talking to people. It's strange though, because that is what my job was for over a year. but that was different because it was over the phone.

Anywho, I've been working on my novel which still doesn't have a title. I'm really excited about the direction it is going in. I'm really horroble at titling though.

I'm so tired of dumbness. I don't really know where THAT came from, but it just seemed like something I needed to express. More so, I am tired of dumb people that are truly nowhere near as intelligent as I am, trying to make ME feel stupid. Um...please. It's not that I am cocky about my intelligence or anything. But it is the ONE thing I am confident about, and then when people that are dumb and don't understand logical concepts try to make it seem like I don't know what I'm talking about, I get really annoyed.
