Googling hair

I've been having loads of fun googling such topics as "1920's bob with bangs," "chin length bob with bangs," "bob with bangs," "1920's makeup," and "Clara Bow." Here is what I've come up with. Hair is probably too short for what the costumers (ahem, Laura) want for Mayzie, but I love this picture anyway. Again, too short for Mayzie, but I adore it :)

Little bit longer....

Here we go. I think this is what the costumers want...Laura said to look for the pictures with the scarf in her hair, and I'm assuming this is what she meant.

This is cute...

If it was up to me, my hair would be cut like this - especially the bangs, I love the bangs - but Laura might say that it was too short :) After the show, I'm going to have it trimmed into a pixie. It's going to be fabulous for summer...my hair won't take three hours to dry after swimming!

day nine

Favorite classic book: Little Women.

And that's all I'm going to say about that. I'm not even going to post a picture.

day eight

I'm not really doing too well with the whole posting every day thing...

This one was hard.

Day eight: an author that I don't like.

Myself. Now, before you freak out and call a therapist in for me, it's not that I don't like myself as a person...I am fearfully and wonderfully made :) I just don't like myself as an author.

I've been trying to "write a book" for the past several years. The plots always turn out sounding stupid, and the characters always turn out shallow and flat. I'm going to keep writing, but I think it'll be a while before I turn out anything that I'm proud of.

Favorite author: Madeleine L'Engle...I say this because I like every book of hers that I've read. Yay L'Engle!! :)

Lesson learned: LOG OUT.

the real miss jenna kay, not her obnoxious little sister :)

btw...I love my sister, no matter how obnoxious she acts ;)
Yes,Jenna I will now sign you out because you forgot to!(no matter how fun it is posting on your blog when you are at choir and don't know what I am doing!)
Your Loving Sister,
<3 Rebecca <3
Wow,bloging is fun!!!
Well, I think Jenna needs to remember to log out of blogspot before going to choir practice!!!HAHAHAHAHA!!!


I don't post about my extended family very much, which is stupid, because my extended family is awesome and would probably result in some super amusing blog posts.

LtoR: Becca, me, Rachel (mom's first cousin, but we treat her like she's our first cousin), Nickie (one of our real first cousins), and Clarissa

Do you think we all look alike? Because I think we do.

days 5 and 6

favorite protagonist: Does Snape count? If so, then Snape.

Book you had to read for school and liked:

Frankenstein...one of my favorite books!! I read it in school this year and fell in love.
Two best things about doing British Lit this year: discovering my love for epic poetry and gothic novels :)

I'm beginning to see a pattern in these posts about books...pretty much every post is about a book that I consider a favorite.

day three..

Most memorable (not nesessarily inspirational or life-changing) quotes:

"If he loved with all the powers of his puny being, he couldn't love as much in eighty years, as I could in a day."
-the charming Mr. Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights

"Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent."
-Doyle in some Sherlock Holmes tale

So you know how Clarissa broke her ankle two weeks ago, and that was the first broken bone in our family ever, and we were like, "Great...first broken bone in the Light family, a month before Seussical. Fantastic!"

Well, yesterday, Rebecca hurt her wrist. Really hurt her wrist...like, it's probably broken. The radiologist is going to look at the x-rays and let us know hopefully today.

So now I guess it's my turn to break something...I'm thinking something big, like my neck, so that I can get more attention than my gimpy sisters. Haha.

Stay tuned for more encouraging health updates from the Light house!! I'm going to go wash down a couple calcium tablets with a large glass of milk, then put on a bike helmet, wrap my body in bubble wrap, and stay in bed until I have to go to the theatre for rehearsal :P

day 2 - 30 days of books

Best cover art - The Great Gatsby

It's iconic and loud. I like it.

Not the greatest picture...sorry.

30 Days of Books

I found this list on facebook. You're supposed to create an album named "30 days of books" and each day, post a picture in that album that cooresponds with the list...but I'm going to do it my bloggy blog, not facebook.
Deal with it.

I'm considering today "Day 1."

I just finished this popular series. Don't laugh at me.

Various other facts concerning the aforementioned series:

My least favorite of the series was book 4.

My favorites are books 3, 6 and 7.

Favorite characters: Lupin, Sirius, and Snape.

(I have trouble picking just one favorite of anything.)

I wasn't expecting so many people to die. It was a wee bit depressing.

I cried at two specific moments in book 7.

So, basically, I'm going to look like this...
Haha! I can't wait :)

confession of the day

I love (the movie) Black Beauty.
I don't know what it is about it.
I just adore it.
I love Sean Bean in the first five minutes of the film as "the farmer."
I love love looooooove David Thewlis as Jerry the cabbie. He's wonderful. And he has gorgeous hands.
I love that I used to watch Black Beauty over and over at my grandparent's house, but I didn't really know what was going on because I was six.
I love the music. It makes me want to cry.
I love that that Black Beauty doesn't die in the end.

So, there ya go. Confession of the day: I love a semi-cheesy horse movie that was made in...

Fun fact! I just found out that Black Beauty was made the year I was born.

I guess most everyone has heard by now: Clarissa broke her ankle. She gets the prize for first broken bone in our family.

She was complaining about how she will miss the next two ECDs because of her cast.

I think she should just find a muscular partner that can carry her around.
