Der Apotheke

A collection of geekery and feminism.

A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well - or ill?

East of Eden - John Steinbeck (via classicbooks101)


Just wrapped up my first run as a principle in a musical… in the local community theater… Take that as you will.


Super stoked that the professional photographer’s photos were uploaded onto dropbox today, only to go online and find out that I am only in the group photo. In a cast of over 50, that means I am approximately the size of a postage stamp even when the photo is blown up to the size of my laptop screen.

I know this is a petty little problem, but just one freaking professional photo showing me up a little closer would have been nice, you know? I mean, I was Eponine in Les Mis, for Pete’s sake, not chorus girl #4. As an ensemble member, I expected and understood when this happened. It made sense. I just thought it would be different when I made the jump to principle. Turns out, Marius, Gavroche, and Adult Cosette were shafted, too. Really, really disappointed in how that all worked out.

Bet you $10 that when I’m back in ensemble, the photos will all be of the leads again. Oh well.


Trying to see the silver lining: at least there aren’t any pictures with unflattering angles. =D

Regardless, I had tons of fun and got to be onstage every weekend singing one of the best angsty. unrequited love songs ever. I will just live with my backstage photos and get geared up for the next show.

"To love another person is to see the face of God."
