Words from My Head: Poetry

Life from the Eyes of Robyn

Sometimes I think we care too much,
But other times, we don't care enough.

You control your life,
Make choices,
Take risks,
Follow your own lead,
Decide for yourself,
and love with every bit of your being.

Learn who you are,
and above all--LOVE who you are.

A New Road to My Life: College

Starting school at Westminster College, has honestly been a blast. I've never been so excited for a new experience (except maybe going to Scotland), and this one has not disappointed! I'm ready to begin the journey to a double major in Art and Psychology!

Classes for this semester include: Beginning Painting (Oil Painting), Intro to Philosophy (one of my favorite classes so far!), Intro to Psych, College Algebra, Yoga for Wellness, and Transitioning to College. I'm also taking an institute class on the New Testament.

My roommates are the bomb! They are all so nice and chill. No partiers here--which is definitely a good thing!

For my philosophy class, we have to choose "character exercises" to do for 2 weeks each--the first ones I chose are: write a short poem every day and write your life history. I will be posting them here. The point of these exercises are to help our own character grow and build internal goods-compassion, ect...

For today's poem:


The tiniest tear drop of dew,
Can be seen on the smallest leaf.
But if we do not notice,
is it still there?

There's A Monster in My Closet

This past week, I had the great opportunity to perform at Kingsbury Hall in There's a Monster in My Closet! It is a musical and I played the Mom and Jamie, the experienced Dreamweaver. The cast was fantastic and I got to do a show with my brother, Steve again. I also was able to be in a show with Jacob Houser and Cassidy Oldroyd again. I was originally in Three Penny Opera, with them almost 2 years ago.

Here are some pictures from this week:
                                                               My mom wig!
Our closet. 

Artistic photos of dressing room-go. And Penny, I know I wasn't supposed to take photos in the dressing room, but I was the only one in there and they are only of lights and costumes. 

Pre-show music-Chorus Line



Before-too happy.




Photo fail, that I actually kind of like.

That's how hot I look after a show.

"Smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeding you? Smelly cat, smelly cat, it's not your fault!"

Thank you Phoebe from Friends for that lovely song.

My family and I are living at my Grandma Brown's house, and we have two indoor kittens that are mine and Wendy's. They are almost 2 years old and are completely black. Their names are Indiana and Stitch. This is Stitch. She is really small, and very skittish. Stich is getting better though, she doesn't run away if someone walks into the room. This is her surprised face!
This last one of Stich is my favorite. She is so sweet. This is Indiana. She is not fat, but not skinny like Stitch. I named her Indiana because she loves to explore (Indiana Jones).

Indiana loves to get into everything. She loves fresh water, food and snacks. Indiana does not like to be held but loves to be petted.          
                                        This is her sassy pose.

Taking a nap on my bed while I do homework.
And last but not least, we have Fire Mage. She is one of the cats that live at Grandma's. Cloud Paw also lives around here, but we haven't seen him lately. Fire Mage loves getting her picture taken.

Youth Theatre Conservatory Takes Over The United Kingdom

In August 2011, I was given the opportunity to travel to London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland. I performed with a group called Youth Theatre Conservatory in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you don't know what that is, well you need to google it. It is the largest arts festival in the world. The Fringe is a great festival and I had so much fun there. Over 10,000 shows are performed in about a month's time. Wherever you go on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh there is a show performing, in every nook and cranny throughout a large portion of Edinburgh. Here's some pictures and moments of the trip:
This is a dress I saw in a store window. I saw it and thought, "I NEED THAT DRESS." But of course, the store was closed.
Nyssa and I had some great adventures throughout the whole trip. One of those adventures was trying to find clothing stores in London. Nyssa and I looked for at least 30 minutes and we still could not find any. We finally found them, but only because we got into a cab and asked the taxi driver where to go. This was a door we saw on the Royal Mile. Nyssa is a master modeling woman!
This is a close in Edinburgh. It's like an alley but for walking. It is on the Royal Mile. This certain close is very important to me because this is where my ancestors lived. I think that is so amazing that I have been where my ancestors walked. Well, that's all for now. I will add more in a couple of weeks.

It's Springtime For Hitler and Germany--Actually It's Springtime for Utah

First off, let me apologize for not posting in FOREVER. I haven't written in FOREVER. And well, I need to do some more blogging! Well, it's springtime. And for Utah it means changing the weather every other day! I love it so so much...NOT. Yesterday it got up to 70 degrees, which I was extremely wonderful! Today was a little bit cooler, but not as great as yesterday. I looked out the window and I saw the most beautiful apricot blossoms, so I decided to go out and take some pictures! Here are a few:

Update: Unfortunately my Grandpa Brown passed away on November 14, 2010. I'm glad that he can be with his Heavenly Father and his earthly parents. I will always miss him dearly.
When I wrote this, my Grandpa Brown was in a home for people with Alzheimers.

 I was I love my grandpa B. soooo much! And I finally got to see him! It was great to see him, and he was even himself sometimes. I loved it, and was just so happy! I love hearing about all the memories he has. He is just an interesting man! Even thinking about it almost has me in tears. I just have a couple of lyrics to tell about my grandpa and how amazing he is!

I'd Give it All For You
No, I'd give it all for you
I'd give it all for you by my side once more
Oh, I'd give it all for you
I'd give it ‘cause the mountains I climb
Get higher and higher
I'm running from time
And walking through fire
And dreams just don't come true
But now there's you

God knows it's easy to hide,
Easy to hide from the things that you feel
And harder to blindly trust
What you can't understand

God knows it's easy to run,
Easy to run from the people you love
And harder to stand and fight
For the things you believe

There were oceans to cross
There were mountains to conquer
And I stood on the shore
And I stood on the cliff
And the second before I jumped
I knew where I needed to be

Oh, I gave it all for you
I gave it all for you by my side once more
Oh, I gave it all for you
I gave it ‘cause it's harder to touch
The things that are dearer
I love you too much
To trust something clearer
I know I fell too far
But here you are

For Good
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you:

Come What May
Come what may, come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste
It all revolves around you

And there's no mountain too high no river too wide
Sing out this song and I'll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather and stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time

Come what may, come what may
I will love you until my dying day
Oh come what may, come what may
I will love you

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place...

Come what may, come what may
I will love you until my dying day

I just love how music expresses how I feel so perfectly. And I know that this is all happening for a reason. I am growing from this experience.
