12:25 am: I decided it was time for a real entry.

I don't know how much longer I'll be keeping this thing...honestly, it creeps me out that some people read this. But, I do like having it for my friends to read.

This week is pretty nice...sleeping in until 9 is really working for me. I don't understand why life can't always be this way...it's so relaxing. However, I have been so lazy this week...so maybe it is a bad thing. Good thing most of my teachers decided to close the marking period last Friday.

My countdown says 48 more school days until the end of the year...I think I can deal with that. Fourth marking period isn't that bad since the weather is soooo nice (usually). Sorry, but waking up to sunlight and nice weather makes me SO much happier.

I think I owe my "eskimo friends" a huge thank you. I've had a pretty crazy last couple of weeks, thank you for listening to me and always being there with your support. I adore you three!

Family from Ireland is coming out in 2 weeks, but they aren't staying with us for the entire time (thank God...). It's not that I don't love their company...it's that they have a baby and I like to sleep a couple of hours a night. I love babies...during my waking hours.

Ok, I should get back to my homework.

Who doesn't want to be Charlotte? I thought this quiz was cute.

Had a good day today...thought a lot of things over and I think I have what I want figured out...then I partied at Jenny's sweet sixteenth. It was the perfect rainy day.


01:18 am: Updates
This week (well, the stuff I'm willing to post here for everyone to see...).

1. Finally played with 2 o'clock band...and I honestly think 3 o'clock was the better opportunity. They sounded a whole lot better at the jazz fest than they ever had when I was there. I'm proud of them, I heard they got an outstanding. But, I can't beat my new flute section (Alaina).

2. Horticulture club was very...interesting...this week (please no one comment on what happened if you know what I'm talking about).

3. Been listening to maybe a little too much Damien Rice...if that is possible. It's just a nice way to cleanse yourself of your pain I guess.

4. Made peace with my flute...maybe I'll wait on the getting a new one plan. My flute has a really nice tone color...just a bad response.

5. Had fun at the jazz fest with my lovely friends...thank you for your support!

6. Stayed up way too late just spending time on AIM...not doing school work.

7. Started to get really blurry vision when looking at things that were close to my face...can't be good.

8. Parents decided they are still not satisfied with me as a person.

9. Woke up to sunshine : )

10. Got really disgusting blisters and cuts on my feet from wearing pretty shoes.

Well, you get the idea. In some ways it's nice to be back at school, there are some things I definitely missed over break. Is it worth the stress of life back at school? It just might be.

01:23 am: Lia is hilarious.
Sorry, Lia makes me laugh a lot at 1:23 am...

I didn't have enough room in my profile, but I needed to post this somewhere. (laughs again)

(Talking about people that we hate...such a rare conversation...)

TheObsceneGamine: Tim is elusive, with random appearances that are unpredictable and frightening
NorthernBelle07: lol ...lia...are you ok?
TheObsceneGamine: his teeth can saw through bone you know.
NorthernBelle07: lol omg....
TheObsceneGamine: just FYI

I'm not sure how funny this will be when...the sun comes out...but it's really stinking funny right now.

01:34 pm: Well, it's almost over. Spring break was amazing, probably one of my best ever...the only thing I regret is that I didn't get to go to the beach...too cold and not enough time. I think there are only 55 more school days until the end of the year (counting half days, finals, and those days where we come in a couple hours later as full days). It should go by pretty quickly.

Lia's sweet sixteenth was amazing. So many priceless moments...seeing her face when she opened Baby Mozart...I mean the iPod we bought for her : ), Scott in ballet costumes eating Lia's kitten, drinking that disgusting "coctail" you guys made for my dare, or Sam looking very "pretty" after his make over. Who would have thought truth or dare could be so much fun? lol. Lia - I hope you had an "excelent" time and I hope you enjoy your iPod!!!! 50 some days until my 16th birthday : ).

My favorite cousin is most likely coming out to see us this summer (she lives in England). That will be awesome...and something to look forward to. This summer is going to be amazing...but I still have to decide if I want to go for 2 or 3 weeks to Prague. Currently, I'm leaning toward 3 weeks...but I'm still not really sure...there are good and bad things about both choices.

Well, I'm off to go on a quick walk before the family gets here (fake smile),

12:59 am: Very long entry...sorry
Yeah, no school is definitely working for me.

Flute party was very fun, as always. I still stink at DDR and I still laugh uncontrollably at stupid things (such as "fru fru" and "catchphrase"). Erin posted lots of cute pictures of our fun on her xanga...the one where I'm doubled over laughing pretty much summarizes the mood of the party. Good times. See you guys next month.

James Galway concert was fantastic, no other way to describe it. Second row seats...omg. He TALKED TO US DURING THE CONCERT!!! Yeah, if only we could play the Faure Fantasie like him... I ended up buying a CD...which I had not planned on doing. I got my Furstenau piece signed by James and Jeanne (who is actually a VERY good flutist...and was a very sweet person, she even recommended a book to us {that we already had}) and my CD signed by him. When I gave Sir James my piece to sign...he looked at it for a minute and then asked Jeanne why they had never played it before. Watch out for this piece on his next CD (yeah right, I know). Probably one of the most memorable nights of my life.

I got my hair cut today. Nothing too interesting...just a bit shorter. Works for me.

I remember being at the beach this time last year. Wow, I can't believe it has been a year since then... My beach house is like my paradise...I find it impossible to be unhappy there. It's perfect...beautiful house, amazing view, awesome neighbors, etc. I couldn't think of a better place to be. Yes, I do think very highly of it...and those who have been there know what I am talking about.

Jazz band home show is next Friday. Shall be interesting. I still haven't been to a rehearsal...I think my parents think I've quit. Whatever. I can't bring myself to take concert band or jazz band seriously...and I know that's the wrong attitude. If any of you guys are still interested in coming, I don't think it will cost you more than a couple of dollars...and it would be really awesome to have you there. : )

Saturday will be a great day for many reasons. I'm very excited.

I <3 Clark Gable...

12:51 pm: Break is amazing.

I watched Gone with the Wind last night while eating brownies and talking on the phone. How much girlier can you get? It felt so good.

Highlights of Break (so far)

*"Playing" bass flute...I had trouble making noise...but I got about a one and half octave chromatic scale out. It was fun.

*Middle school dance party with Lia...we found all of the really bad music on my iPod that would have been played at middle school dances and actually danced (because no one danced back then)

*Shopping with Alaina and Lia...found some very "fru fru" things

*Saw the same guy that we saw at the mall in the food court (the one with the dulcimer) at my church playing guitar (that was really weird...)

*Actually had enough time to go to church so I could play

*Avoided my homework (although I have close to none this break)


Actually, I think I'll start getting ready for that. Omg, I'm going to faint. He's my: hero, idol, dream, .....

11:19 pm: Prepare yourself for an emotional entry...
So we finally made it.

I've been counting down to this for months.

Spring break.

I intend on enjoying every minute of it. My only goal is to come back to school happy and carefree...ready to complete the school year with success.

Lots of fun things to do this break...it should be a very fun time.

But, sometimes there is nothing like the comfort of your own home.

I finally get to enjoy waking up in my beautiful and sunny room. I get to appreciate the smell of the candles burning in the living room. I forgot how much I loved my house. This year has just been so stressful that I have forgotten the beauty of my life...and life in general.

This year just start badly. Marching band and school was overwhelming. When I think of marching band season, I think of sitting in my bathroom crying in the middle of the night because I thought I was a failure...and that happened every night. Then when I couldn't do things on the weekend because of band, homework, or just cathing a couple of hours of sleep...I was called anti-social. You have no idea how much that hurt. I felt like I had betrayed all of my friends...and I wanted to change everything...but hours and hours of band stopped me from doing so.

The above does not include semi or homecoming. I didn't want to go to either...with a passion.

I thought things would get easier after band ended...and they did. I just didn't take advantage of things. I learned how to procrastinate until the last minute on every possible thing. I also learned what living off of 3 hours of sleep a night felt like. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love my midnight (and usually later than that) buddies. Alaina and Lia, you guys make procrastination worth it every night. : ) I regret none of it.

I'm feeling extremely satisfied and happy right now. I'm determined to smile every day from now on.


PS: Oh, and I did finally decided that love not only can be selectively blind...it always is.

03:45 pm: Lesson learned today: Don't tick Mr. Hood off when he is tired, he might throw something at you.

One more day until Spring Break...and tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day! : )

Unfortunately, chem and social studies tests tomorrow...

I'll go study now...well, kind of.
