Oh Canada!

Ah...tonight is closing night. I cannot believe that Toronto went by so quickly. It is the strangest thing because all of our other five weeks stops felt like five weeks. But this one felt so short! I am going to miss it here in beautiful springy Toronto! So many fun things happened here! Just a few days ago, me, Matt, Christy, Andy, Ben, and Blake went for high tea in our hotel. It was so much fun and as we were sipping away at our tea and nibbling our finger sandwiches, Christy had us all go around the table and say what our favorite part of Toronto was. A lot of us shared the same feelings and memories...making new friends with the awesome Dog See's God cast...and some not so much such as having a 24 hour Tim Horton's available haha. (I do not like TH at all...sorry Canadians) But one thing was definitely a major consensus...Niagara Falls!

Last Monday, Matt, Andy, Ben, Gabby, Julie D, Kimiko, Lucas, Anthony, Claire, and I woke up really early, rented cars, and had a fun-filled day at Niagara Falls. It was so much fun! The falls are absolutely GORGEOUS and so much water! It was awesome to see, cause I had only ever seen it in pictures and movies like Superman! So we had a wonderful lunch overlooking the falls and then walked around and explored. We found ourselves eating candy from the Fudge Factory, looking at the falls from the ground up on the Journey Behind the Falls tour, and having the living daylights scared out of us at the Horror House, Nightmares. Oh, and a lot of comments have been going up about my comment that blackberries are crunchy. Let me tell you all what I meant by that, because after thinking about it, a crunchy blackberry does sound like a seriously bad one haha. The crunchiness that I meant was the seeds. You know how as you eat a blackberry or a raspberry, you feel the seeds too? That is what I meant, like I had to crunch on all the little annoying seeds in the berry. Just needed to tell you all that yes the blackberry was soft and squishy...but I did not enjoy the hard teeny seeds that I had to crunch on haha. You guys should check out our Niagara Falls Adventure videos! Part one is up right now on Totally Trucked and part two should be coming out next week so you guys will finally know what happens at Nighmares and you'll get to see if any of us had any luck at the casino!! Plus the falls at night and a lot of random singing. I'll tell you all about the second part of our day after the video comes out!

Tomorrow we leave for Providence and then Boston after that! These next few months, there is so much to look forward to! My family is going to be coming out in Pittsburgh to see me play Ilse! Oh, actually I haven't officially announced it on my blog so now I will! I will be performing as Ilse in Spring in Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday and Sunday May 30 and May 31 for 
both the matinee and evening shows, and also in Louisville, KY on Tuesday and Wednesday June 2 and 3! I am very excited about being able to go on for Ilse 6 times. It is a very weird life, being a swing, because going on once for someone, or even twice is sometimes tough because you don't fully get to develop your character. You are still getting used to doing it, and kicking out the excited butterflies, so after the second or third one, you can really buckle down and learn a lot about the part, and actually do it. So I will finally get that chance with Ilse and I cannot wait! Hopefully some of you guys can make it out! But anyway, my parents, my aunt, and my brother and sister are coming to Pittsburgh on the Thursday before and staying through Monday which will be perfect! I will get to spend time with them, and they'll finally get to see me in a role (they've only seen me in the chair of rock). Yay!!!

Omg! I was so excited to hear someone else actually hating Tim Hortons! I live in Canada, and TH is absolutely EVERYWHERE and I think it is absolutely awful! So you don't have to worry about offending us, about having 24h th open everywhere!

Hi Krystina!
I love the excitement your blog posts exude. I'm glad you seem to be having a great time with the show and experiencing the different cities! I didn't get to meet you at the stage door today, but would have told you I thought you were amazing the times I saw you in your chair, but also as Thea! You did a great job with her character! All the best for the future and enjoy the rest of the tour! =)
