    Been a long time since I’ve been here! How are you? :)

    I love musicals. I just don’t know them by heart but I really love them. Not much musicals are shown here in our place. If there is, it’s just going to be about a historical event that once happened in our country. -___-

    It would be pretty cool to get to see all of those plays. I really enjoy them and I’m so glad that my city puts on free musical production once a year. If I ever get to that point I definitely want to go to at least a few plays a year. It would be a great experience. I particulary want to see Beauty in the Beast. It’s my favorite Disney Classic.

    That’s okay, I understand! Enjoy your vacation!

    This is going to be weird but I don’t remember the musicals I visit. I only remember what they were about. I’ve only been to a few (less than 5 actually). Musicals/shows in our country are very rare. -___- Maybe there ARE many shows in our country but it’s just that they aren’t very well-known which is why I don’t know about them. :3

    I love your layout, very pretty and eye-catching! :)

    My fiancee is 21 and she’s still in love with Lion King. I will admit that it’s very popular. Especially since Lion King DVD is still on display for like $30.00 when all the other movies are dirt cheap.

    I suck at math! I honestly just counted on my fingers for your security math code, haha!
