I really need to update this more.

Sorry that I’ve been MIA for so long. Life kind of took over. Since my last post I’ve been loving life, spending a lot of time at the Library with my readings, writing essays and jetting off to New York City for the weekend…

New York City. It was only the most amazing experience of my life. I don’t think the city tops London for me (I will never be able to get over the fact that NYC is in the United States), but my Broadway, aka HAIR exxperience was beyond words. We met, tammed and took pictures with the entire cast. We met our IDOLS. At the show we DANCED and SANG on stage with the cast and many other audience members and we sang the last minute of Let the Sunshine In with Will Swenson’s arms around us (us being Ally and I). That moment on stage will forever be the happiest moment of our lives. At stage door that night (we went both Friday and Saturday…we had to meet Gavin Creel!) Allison Case showed up to get on the bus with the rest of the cast to DC for the National Equality March on the following Sunday. We didn’t think we’d meet her so seeing her there was one of my highlights of the trip. She’s so wonderful and I hate that she’s injured, it truly breaks my heart. Oh, and Caissie Levy (our fellow Canadian in the Tribe) is amazing, wonderful, spectacular…she’s every positive adjective in the book. She recognised us when we ran on stage after the show on saturday and both nights she talked with us for at least 5 minutes and it was amazing and ahhhhh.

I could go on forever about how wonderful they all are… I have to force myself to stop.  But honestly. Best night of my life.

Since then I’ve been doing a lot of essay writing, dealing with broken down computers (agian), the usual. I bought one of those mini netbook things because the idea of relying on library computers for a month again stresses me out, so it was worth the $250 I spent yesterday afternoon.

Anyway, I must go get ready for my favourite class ever now (autobiography seminar… I love everything about it; the topic, the prof, the discussion, the fact that it’s a 25-person seminar and not a 100-person lecture…).

peace, love, life.

BLOG. EVERY. DAY. APRIL.: A project started by Young Adult novellist, Maureen Johnson for her desperate fans (and in promotion of the paperback release of her most recent novel, Suite Scarlett <– go buy it…it’s awesome), in which she’ll blog every day for the month of April. Many fans are joining her in this quest of daily documentation.

I am one of them.

April, I believe, is a good month to do this. Yes, it is busy with all the final exams and such but, in all honesty, it is really significantly less busy than the rest of the school year.

You see, tomorrow I am handing in my last essay for the year (hallelujah) and then all I have are four final classes and then I’m basically free (aside from hours and hours of studying an entire year’s worth of material for three separate final exams) for summer until, of course, when I start working on May 4th. Since all I’ll be doing throughout April is studying at home/Stauffer Library/Starbucks, I figure that I can take approximately 20 minutes out of my day to tell you, my blog (because no one reads this anyway) [EXCEPT FOR MY LOVELY, LOVELY, FACEBOOK WIFE JAZZ! LOVE YOU DARLING!] , what’s on my mind.

Sound good?



Well, wish me luck as I embark (along with about 100 other people) on this miraculous journey of beda.


Hello again, friends. I forgot about this little ditty that’s on Maureen Johnson’s original blog post about BEDA. It makes it more…official, I guess.


I commit to this idea and am determined to create something EVERY DAY in April, including weekends. Every day, I will find something to say. I embrace the reality that there is always something to talk about, if you are willing to take the time to look for it.

Samantha H. Porter promise to blog every day in April

Fun, right?
