Bad Hair Day #1
Freshman year of college, highlighting hair with Shannon, my next door neighbor. Shannon became like a sister to me that first year and although we grew apart in the following years we never completely lost touch. I'll never forget the fun times I had that first year.
Bad Hair Day #2
For some reason I thought it was a good idea to bleach my hair Freshman year. Why didn't anyone talk me out of it? Ah well, I was young, I was in college, and it was the late 90's. I suppose that's the thing to do, eh? We've all had our share of hair bleach gone wrong (right Spenc?)
Bad Hair Day # 3
Meet Melanie. Melanie is a Morman. Melanie is a white girl. And yes, you are seeing correctly--Melanie has long braids piled on top of her head. This picture was taken at the end of year theater banquet and I wish I could say Mel had that hair for this occasion but no, she had this hair for many months prior. Hair Fail.
Sarah! I have adored this picture for years, probably because we look like a couple. Sarah was one of my favorite people that I met Freshman year and I'm so happy to be talking to her again. She's a frequent visitor to BriTunes so a shout out to Sarah!
"Pride" and Prejudice
At the time do you think any of those two boys with me were gay? Nope. Now, do you think any of those boys with me are gay? Both. When I first started at USU theater I was the only 'mo in the department and by the time I left it was littered with them. I started the trend, I did. This was taken before a performance of "Pride and Prejudice" where I played about fifteen different characters. Captain Champagne being one of them. Look at my hair--it's like a frickin' perm.
This Halloween is memorable to me because it was the one year everyone was being lame and didn't want to go out. I remember Annette flip flopping between going out, and staying in, going out, staying in. In the end we all threw costumes together and went to the HOWL. Here I am with Amanda who is a lovely yodeler. Or goatherd. Or Sound of Music character. I'm not sure.
I met many people who helped shape my life in college, but no two influenced me more than Kevin and Adrienne. They were always supportive, constructive, and taught me more about myself as an actor and a person than anyone I came across in my four years at USU. For that, I'll always be grateful! This picture makes me laugh because I was SO SICK. It was the last week of school and I had mono. I remember going to this party and wanting to hang so bad but I couldn't stop feeling like I was going to pass out. It looks like I'm embracing them, but I was probably just leaning on them so I wouldn't fall over!
Fat Girl Fever
Jamie and I would occasionally have fat girl nights where we would get food and watch bad movies. This particular fat girl night was memorable because we bought a container of whipped cream and then bought about ten random items of food and dipped everything in the whipped cream. Candy, crackers, jello, cheese, carrots......so gross. At the time it was delicious and looking back it's hilarious--best of both worlds!
Best. Story. EVER.
I love the zoo. Every summer I would convince everyone to come with me, even though nothing had changed from the year prior. This particular year I was dating Blake, and he had just had knee surgery so we rented a wheelchair to wheel him around in. Well, after a while he wanted to walk so we each took turns riding in it. Towards the end of the day I was pushing Heidi and we came across some railroad tracks, where the little zoo tram would ride on. I stopped, left Heidi on the tracks, and walked away. For some reason we all thought this was the funniest thing in the world. I think what made it so funny was Heidi's reaction to it. It's moments like those I wish my life was a reality show so I could go back and play the video. Love you Heidi!
