Cast list

Boy, what fun today was. I didn't get a part in the musical, atleast not a very important one. I'm choral group seven. Yippie. You wanna know what really ticked me off? Anna.

Ok, she got a Priscilla girl which is a SPEAKING Role. Its like a secondary character. And she starts complaining about it to ME who got NOTHING. She's practically shoving it in my face that she got a part. One, she's a freshmen and she can really make alot of enemies the way she's acting. If you are going to complain about actually getting a part you DON'T complain to someone who all they got was CHORAL GROUP SEVEN. You go and you complain to someone who got a lead because if you complain to someone who got a part smaller than yours you make them feel worse than they already did and you are also going to turn friends into enemies! In fact she shouldn't even be complaining at all. She should just shut up and be happy that she got a speaking part and cut the "oh, i wasn't expecting that!!!" high pitched crap. No one believes it, we know you're just being arrogant, shut up.

Oh and even better, that new girl tuba is getting on my last nerve in band. She found out that I don't know most of my notes BECAUSE I JUST STARTED IT THIS FLIIIIIIIPPPPPIIIIIIINNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG YEAR, and guess what? She actually had the AUDACITY to say, well mutter, "Why does he let people who can't play in band?" she is just soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lucky that I wasn't in the mood to even defend myself, I was too bummed out to even retort, but next band period, she's getting an earful....

Today. Sucked.

"Our" Group

I have mentioned it multiple times but you never who "our" group is exactly. So here's a list

1. Me (cuz I'd have to include myself in my own 'group')
2. Amanda
3. Tracy
4. David
5. Kate
6. Pumpkin
7. Eryn
8. Becky
9. Valerie
10. Bridget
11. Amber
12. Shawni

There are a couple others but they are kinda like in the group but not really because all the people listed above know and like each other and have a tight bond with each member but then there are a few newbies and a few people that are in our group that not all of us like but all put up with because other members of the group like them and there are people who were in the group but kinda just drifted and then others who were like vetoed out you could say (in other words, we kindly and politely told them exactly what we thought about them and they made the choice to leave the group on their own....(this may or may not have been exaggerated(OH MY GOD I just made a parenthesis INSIDE a parenthesis inside a parenthesis(inside a parenthesis, that takes some major talent (INSIDE a parenthesis, or just no life)))))

Lucky Pickle

I can't wait to open all my presents!!! Its so exciting! Underneath our Christmas tree there are like a zillion and one presents. I can't wait to open them all.

The title of this blog has to do with Eryn's christmas tree and no I did not just spell my own name wrong. I just spelled one of my best friends' names. In her christmas tree they always hide a porcelin pickle and if you find the pickle you are supposedly going to have good luck. Well, during study hall today, I somehow convinced Beidler to let me go and sit with Tracy, David, Hinkle, and Eryn and we started talking about the lucky pickle. Haha, I told her I'm going to come to her house and tackle her tree and tear it apart to find that pickle and then afterward I'd just walk out cuddling the pickle leaving a burning christmas tree behind me.

Me and my friends are nuts. About the only one of us who is sane is Amanda. Even she has her nutty moments such as "Thtop it you guyth! I'm thoking on my thaliva." That is a very interesting story. Amanda is supposed to be the smart one of our group, right? (I'll have to put down a list of who "our group" is then.) Well, in oceanography I had this huge peppermint stick and I broke off a piece the size of my pointer finger and it was about the size of a golden dollar wide and get this..."smart" amanda sticks the entire thing in her mouth WHOLE!!!! And we were laughing at her. It was about the most funny thing that ever happened in oceanography, then again nothing really fun happens in oceanography. Its pretty dull actually

Pep Rally

Oh boy, sounds like fun. I really hate pep rallies. I mean I don't mind the getting out of class part since spanish 2 is kind of boring but the pep rallies are really stupid and obnoxiously loud.

I'm really tired, I don't know why.

I brought in a poopload of pennies and two pooploads of silver. It probably wasn't enough to knock the seniors out of first place. The American Red Cross will be happy. Most of the Juniors and the Seniors donated at least twenty bucks of their own. Matt Juretic brought in two boxes of 25 dollars in pennies. Well, not much else to talk about right now.

Reading auditions

They are after school today. I am hoping that I can atleast somehow score ethel even though I know there is no way on earth I am scoring Muzzy. My auditions sucked beyond belief. I was reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally bad. I really want Ethel if I can't have muzzy or any other singing part for that matter.

Yea, she'd probably put me in the back up back up chorus, if there is such a thing. Well, I'm wondering if I can somehow still get my boyfriend to stay after school with me. I know he wanted to go out for a speaking part, maybe I can still get him to stay. I don't know, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

A book everyone should read: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Today is Cameron's birthday

That'd be my little brother. He is turning ten today. He's so excited about it. I kind of pity everyone whose birthday is in December because everyone has already gone out and blew so much money on Christmas presents. I could only afford to buy my brother one thing. I got him the star wars gun he's wanted for so long, so I'm giving that to him for christmas.

I finished my short story last night. Its kinda like a songfic( a story based off a song for all those non-writing obsessed people). Its called "Check Yes or No" which is a country song that i was ironically listening to when I came up with the idea for the story. I think my story is kind of gay. Most of my short stories are.

Oh my god, the new girl in band annoys me so much. Ok, if you are going to move to a new school and you are in band, the last thing you want to do is bash your own section. For example, if you move to a new school and you play tuba, verbally assaulting the entire tuba section, isn't going to win you any points. She started by saying that our tubas were nasty and needed to be cleaned and then she said that we needed help because all of our scales were terrible, especially F minor. OH WELL I'M SORRY I ONLY STARTED PLAYING THIS YEAR. Oh, but she didn't just stop there. She verbally abused the entire band. She went up to Jenny after we got our music and said, "At my school we were the top band in our state, y'all must be the lowest in your state because I played this music in sixth grade." I wanted to just accidentally beat her with my music stand, but only accidentally.

Oh and she wants to join marching band too. Now that really ticks me off. We have only ever had one tuba at a time since I was in eighth grade. Mia gave me her spot next year, she's doing baritone. So that tuba spot is MINE. I know there can be two tubas, but I was supposed to be the only one. That spot was supposed to be mine and now Miss. I'm so much better than all of you and my band was the top of the state and bla bla bladity bladity bla drone drone drone Wants to TAKE MY SPOT???!??!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!?!??!!?!??!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!


oh and to top it all off last night I got a letter from Susquehana university, I didn't get into honors band, instead I've been selected as the few honored alternates. That's all a lie. There are 175 people who have the exact same letter I have.

An idea

I don't understand why thinking of an idea for a short story is so hard for me. I was thinking about writing another one of those forbidden romances, like the one i wrote for a short story in ninth grade about an indian and a pilgrim falling in love, kind of. I don't really remember much about it. Yea. I don't have any ideas whatsoever, I'm not in a creative zone right now. I am basically all crapped out of cool ideas. I have already prewrote Perpetual Moments and its what would you call it, a trequel? Well, the third book in the 'Perpetual' series will be called Perpetual Heartbeat and Perpetual Moments does not end well, people will hate me for the ending. Oh well.

A sucky week usually starts off with a sucky day

My day was all ok until audition time where I totally choked. Yea, everyone can definitly say that they did better than I did. I sucked sooooo bad. But I came home and get this...I got home to a phone call telling me that I won four free hershey park passes for next summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god! I was cheered up after that. I mean, I'll still be in musical even though I sucked at auditions, I'll just be in the chorus. I want to atleast have a speaking part. That'd be nice. At this point I'd even settle for Ethel. Yea, I'm desperate.

Concert Evaluation

I figure that we are going to have to do one of these in band for a grade anyhow. The concert was AMAZING and I played a solo and actually did ok!!!!!! I was so glad!!!! The percussion did awesome! I sat there and was mesmerized by them. The Chamber Choir did good too! The chorus did awesome, especially in Hallelujah Chorus, we only practiced that once or twice and we had to have it memorized. I came home and was exhausted and went right to bed.

Of course, the one for band is going to have to be more detailed and i'll actually have to say things that could be improved and crap, but yea.

I'm in study hall right now and I had nothing better to do so that's where this blog came from.

I am redoing my course selection sheet because I did my last one in ink and I'm not sure if I want to take half of those.
Classes I'm definitly taking:
English Comp 1 and 2, congratulations Mr.Miller you're stuck with me another year.
Physcology and Sociology
Child Development And Parenting
Spanish 3

Classes I'm iffy about:
Preschool experience
Elective Sports
Analytic Geometry and Calculus
Independent Living

But yea, I want to take atleast seven credits, most of them being little half year things, then I'll like change entire schedules throughout the year.

Ok, that's enough writing for today.

My story cover

I just wanted to put this up. Its the cover to my fanfic called perpetual Moments, obviously you can tell that by the title. The Subtitle, if you're curious, is the lyrics to my favorite song. "Almost a Whisper" by yanni. Look it up on Imeem. I promise you'll love it or your money back. (By the way http://www.imeem.com/ doesn't charge you anything to look up music, or download it either.)

Amron (norma's name backwards)

Here he is, Amron and his mommy. Alaina is cuter. Soooooo much cuter. But Amron is a cute baby too.

Guess what????

I MADE COUNTY BAND! Oh my god! I can't believe it! I have never made county band, ever. I can't even make Honors Band! But I made county band!!! Oh my god!!!!!! Other than that there isn't much to talk about. Oh, Little Alaina is exactly One month One Week and One day old today. She's growing like a little bean and so adorable. Her cousin Amron was born not to long ago. I'll post some pictures of him in my next post I promise. I still think that Alaina is cuter by far. Him and his mommy. Alaina is more precious by far though.

Its not fair. I was on honor roll and now I'm not because of one stupid grade. Mr. Innes failed me on my spot check. So now I'm not honor roll because I have a seventy seven in band. Well that's not fair because I only started playing Tuba this year. I don't know much. It took me four months to get Violin. And that's alot easier than tuba. You don't need to have huge lungs to play violin. He might recommend me for County Orchestra. I can't wait. I'm signing up for County Band even though I know I won't make it I'm still brave enough to put my name on that list. So yea. Nothing else to rant about right now. I'm sure I will have something to talk about later

High School Books

What's the difference between a book termed "high school" and a middle school book? Make Lemonade by Virginia Euwer Wolff is termed as a "high school" book. Yet, its sequel is on the middle school shelf. Yes, Make Lemonade is about a teenage mother of two struggling to pay the rent and pay for diapers and the girl named Lavaugn that comes to babysit for her so that she could work. OH MY GOD TEEN PREGNANCY don't want the little middle schoolers reading that! Yet, they let the book Doormat on the middle school shelf? That is also about a FIFTEEN year old girl getting pregnant. And you know what, when the middle schoolers come up to the high school they won't have to read a book to get exposed to Teen Pregnancy, they'll see it everywhere. We have double the amount of pregnancies we did last year. So what does that say about Northern Lebanon? I don't blame the girls and I don't blame the guys, I blame them both because it takes two to make a baby. One of my best friends, Jamie, had a baby a month ago, I already told you this I know, and I also put up pictures of her. Another one of my friends thinks she might be pregnant. It just blows me away and some of these girls you wouldn't even expect it of! I never expected that of Jamie but I didn't blow her off because she was because I love Jamie and I love her baby and I even like the father. Jamie is an unusual story because usually the teen father leaves but David loves Alaina and Jamie. He's a good father and Jamie is a good mother. And Alaina is a good baby.

Ok, sorry for the rant, I just needed to get that out of my system.
