But in all seriousness, I'm back after an unplanned hiatus! I apologize to the - 4 people that read this blog. To put it simply, I was off the Internet machine because my depression flared up (that makes it sound like it's a rash or a bad case of cystic acne, but lol), and when it does that, I try to stay off social media/electronics in general. Instead, I watched television and read a few books (expect a blog post on that).
Anywaaaaaay, I am able to cross two things off my 101 in 1001 list, which is why I'm writing. On Tuesday, the 25th, I saw Colleen Ballinger's Miranda Sings show, and met her for the second time (with more than 1.345 million combined subscribers, I consider her pretty famous).
For anyone who doesn't know, Miranda Sings is a character created by the lovely Colleen Ballinger, poking fun at Internet singers and those trying to acquire fame via YouTube. Don't let Miranda's atrocious singing fool you, though. Colleen is a very talented singer herself, and earned a degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. Colleen also has a YouTube channel, entitled Psychosoprano, which has nearly half a million subscribers (I actually like Colleen more than Miranda, don't tell on me).

The show was FANTASTIC. I saw the show last April, but so many things were different. That's one of the great things about the Miranda shows, they're always evolving, but still incredibly entertaining. This time, I was able to meet the majority of Colleen's family (Rachel, Chris, Jess, Bailey, Jacob, and Parker), whereas last I only met Josh (not complaining, though!)
Here are some pictures (I took these all with my iPhone, so I apologize for the cringe-worthy quality):
She sang Love is an Open Door from Frozen with Jake.
I love how Colleen incorporated her awkward childhood pictures, as she calls them, into the show.

She literally took the shirt I bought out of my hands and started signing it. Precious.
