"Sleep no more..."  
I got tickets today to see Macbeth starring James Mcavoy and Claire Foy! My spring break this year falls right when the play is up in London so my mother and I will be taking a quick trip across the pond. This is the one year that for ONCE I won't have a billion assignments in the spring so time to take advantage!

I'll also be in London during the time Peter and Alice by John Logan starring Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw is running. Tickets are madly expensive at the moment so I'm debating on this one. It's not like Macbeth tickets were dirt cheap but I've never read nor seen anything by Logan whereas you know, SHAKESPEARE. The plot of Peter and Alice centers around two historical figures I've been interested in for years but you know that ticket prices are high due to the play's stars rather than perhaps the content. The play itself won't be published until March but perhaps I can read it first before making a decision.

I've been so consistently put off by romance that I've actually spent years not searching for romance, but rather searching for ways to try to want romance. Eventually, I realized how completely stupid that was. It's still difficult not to feel weird about genuinely not wanting that when the entire rest of the world seems like it's losing its head when it doesn't have it, you know? But ah well. Different strokes for different folks, and all that. Be who you are. That's what counts the most anyway. :D

I'm sure there's a chance he has a lovely personality as well. But until you can confirm that, talk away about how perfectly wavy his hair is.

I've found there is a general possibility of these things going one of two ways with the people who look sad. They are either (1:) fantastic, amazing, maybe shy but beautiful people once they realize someone cares enough to coax them out of their shell, or (2:) horribly bitter people with a secret anger that lashes out when anyone attempts to speak to them. I am hoping he is the former, but I suppose I won't know until actual communication has been had. AUGH, WHY MUST THIS BE A ONCE-A-WEEK CLASS?

I think traditionally it tends to be straight men who often talk about having muses who are often women.

You know what? You're right. I can't right now think of a single popular character who had a muse and was also a female. I suppose, given that particular inclination, a male muse would be entirely possible. Men are just so much nicer to be around when they aren't super-stereotypically male. I hope that's not rude to say. I guess I just tend to like people who defy expectations in some way.
