This weekend I went to the school play, “Hair” with my friend Eli. The reason that we wen’t was because both of our teachers offered extra credit for attending and writing some things down about what you saw. I am very glad that we went to the play because I really needed the extra credit if I wanted to keep my grades the way they were. The play proved to be somewhat entertaining in my opinion, because by older sister’s best friend was performing as a major character.
The first thing Eli and I found as a dominant thing in the theater was the amount of fog in the room, along with the crazy hippie lights that filled the room. The fog moving in the light is almost hypnotic when listening to the tribal love rock music. All of the acting and singing was very well done and was quite fast paced and fun. The emotion of the characters was dramatic and showed the practice and effort that all of the performer had put in to the play.
Aside from the amazing singing and stage set, the story of the play was pretty interesting if you could keep up. it was basically about a bunch of hippies fighting against the war and everything else that hippies don’t like. At the end of the play I felt like I actually got to know each and every one of the characters, and it was weird seeing what all of the performers looked like without all of their silly costumes and makeup. I feel more appreciative of theater now that i’ve seem how much effort it takes to compose a play and perform it without making a single mistake, it is truly incredible! I am hoping to go to more plays and other events held by the theater group next year, they are a great time and sometimes even help out your grades.
Lacrosse is a huge passion in my life and I play it any chance I get. I haven’t been playing for that long, just one year with the local Santa Barbara Lacrosse program, one season at the terrible school San Marcos on JV, and now this year on the SBHS Varsity team!
several of the varsity lacrosse players decided to bleach their hair in honor of the San Marcos rivalry game, including Myself… On monday night I decided that I was going to bleach my hair and show my dedication to the team. I thought that getting a do it yourself kit would do the trick, so I had my dad pick one up at CVS on his way home. My dad began the process of making the bleaching mixture, that composed of powders, oils, and other chemicals that I was about to put in my hair. As My dad began to coat my whole head of hair with the toxic concoction of bleaching chemicals I has beginning to have to serious thoughts that I had made a very bad decision.
Once the bleach was in my hair I had to leave it in for at least 30 minutes, but I knew that wasn’t going to be long enough, so I kept it in for about an hour. After the hour was up my head was burning and I couldn’t wait to get in the shower. Once i did shower I couldn’t help to notice that my hair turned out golden yellow. I went to school the next day and got a tremendous amount of hate and extreme responses toward my hair. To fix this problem I though it would be a good idea to redo my hair to get rid of the yellow. Luckily for my one of my friends mom if a hair stylist that could do it for me for free and professionally. My friend and I both went in to his mom and gout our hair bleached, for me a second time. The trick is to keep it in for as long as possible and of course having salon grade hair products help too.
Once I was done with the process my hair was actually white! The next day people shared their opinions, on it like last time but at least they were good opinions this time
