WHEEE!!!!!!
HOLY SMOKES!!!!
I HAVE A CHANCE AGAIN AT CONCERT BAND!!!!

How so do you ask?
Well, I looked at the audition materials again just to stare at its hardness and the window was open and I noticed something new...

"The percussion auditions for placement in the Wind Symphony, Symphony Band
and Concert Band will consist of the following:"

Aka: The stuff I have been working on is the auditions for all three of the bands and its ok that it is hard!!!

In other words, I COULD MAKE IT INTO CONCERT EVEN THOUGH I AM BAD AT THE MUSIC!!!

Just might want to get Log Cabin Blues down pretty good so I dont make myself look like an idiot.

WOOOHOOOO!!!

My life [08 Aug 2006|10:44pm]
So, I have quite a bit to update about.
First off, the major things of today...
AP SCORES!!
so since I was at Troy high to practice, I decided to swing by the main office to see my scores, well, I got the envelope with my score report...
English Literature     3 (oh well, but at least i waive out of my english requirement!!!)
Calc BC                     5 (and thus an ab subscore of a 5)
Physics - E&M          5 (Woohoo!!)
Physics - Mech         5 (WOOOOHOOOO!!!!)

So yeah, that is happy, 16 credits! and no more just physics, physics class granted physics will be in my career, but i wont have a class just based on physics

And second thing, I am not moving in on the 23rd like other msuers, I am moving in on the 22nd. Why you ask?
I am in transitional housing. aka, I have 2 roommates.
Well, my mom survived. Roommates are Mollie and Morgan. Hope I dont get them mixed up...

And in other news, I am dead for getting into concert band.
Why may you ask?

I found the music online yesterday for the audition that has a note dated june 19th... people have been practicing it since then are bound to be better than me. At least I have the mallet part down and practically memorized, and the tom part i rewrote(so it is no longer full of 32nd notes...), and hopefully while everyone is off at band camp i can get into the band room and bang on the tympani. Should be fun.

Except for the solo/etude... Considering I am trying to learn log cabin blues by august 26th when it took andrew a year to learn the peice.... well, at least I will know how quickly i can learn a tough peice and i am working on my sightreading skills...

Anyways, at least there is hope for spring semester.

My room is a mess too... Packing up your stuff when you still have to live in your room is hard... but oh well, i shall succeed!!

Well, bed time, 8 hours of work then heading off to troy high to practice some more!

I BROKE A DRUM STICK FOR THE FIRST TIME AT CHURCH REHEARSAL TODAY!!!!!!
i can't believe it!! i finally broke a stick!!! although it was on an electronic drumstick and i noticed it when i was hitting the snare drum with my left hand.... my left hand stick broke, how often does that happen? the right hand plays more and you would think a stick would break in that hand first.... oh well, i broke a stick!!!

Oh, and make sure to remind me that if i am at home from 6-8:30 on wednesdays, yell at me to go to school. cause i know that the band room will be open then and i can play on a mallet instrument and not lose what mallet skills i have.

Anyways, gotta get to bed now cause i have work in the morning. Work is interesting, and i like school days a lot better... a lot shorter than 8 hour work days, plus you see friends more.

And i am running into this problem.... when are you able to call adults by their first name?? in my church band, all of them all older than me, some just younger than my parents, and some were my teachers.... do i call them by their first name like everyone else? or call them mr. or mrs. such and such? at what age can i call them by their first name? and at work of course everyone is older than me, but do i call my bosses by their first name or last name? so hard to tell because they are my parents age if not older. Ahhh soo confusing.... since i am 18 now would i be able to be considered an adult and be able to call other adults by first name or still go out of respect and go by last name???

anyone with any opinions please respond.

making this public so others who aren't my lj friends have an oppertunity to become my lj friend/give their opinion.

WHEEE!!!! GRAD PARTY INSANITY!!! I DONT WANT MY MOM GOING CRAZY BECAUSE NOW I AM!!!

WOOHOO! my cousin becky had her 2nd child this morning, its a baby girl! Welcome to the world Molly Elizabeth!

And what do you know, when my mom came back yesterday she said congrats on getting into penn state and now you really have to get a job in the summer.... cant we celebrate for now that i got in??? arg... oh well... bro is way to concerned about my life and saying that if he wants to get a job and he is in sports, i should be able to manage to get a job... in the words of a most excellent teacher... "you have to work your whole life, why work now when your parents are supporting you, have fun now, cause you have your whole life to work" dont remember which teacher said that, but very true. i mean this is supposed to be the best years of your life, why waste it working when you have your whole life to work?

anyways, off to try calling my cousins becky and jason to congratulate them. gotta feel bad for becky though, molly was born at 5:50am and you go into labor a couple hours beforehand and then people are going to be visiting all day today... man, not going to get any sleep at all...

later all you crazies

nosila: on a tile floor?!?!
nosila5956: that's crule and unusual punishment, man...

they did a lets see who is in what room, calling off names thing the first night at 1:30..... that is am...
but there was a computer in the room and i spent a half hour trying to figure out the password, but then found a loophole in the system so i could get online =P. i felt like alison and her mad computer skillz. but i got online and that was the important part (got to get my neopet interest and check bobandgeorge.com sign on to aim)
the concert was interesting, i messed up sooo bad, but oh well, it was a hard timpani part that i totally messed up on... about a fourth i did wrong...i got lost.... that was bad.... luckily i found out where we were... and i messed up my solo... wahhh. oh well

it took three and a half hours to get back home, no stops, the roads were terrible, it took us 2.75 hours to get there with 3 stops... food, gas, rest area.

You Are 11 Years Old



11





Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.




alison's reaction: no... i didn't call that... not at all...

hehe, cake and ice cream is awesome at parties...



Your Element Is Earth



You excel at planning and strategizing.
You could be a champ at chess or Survivor.

Well grounded, you are able to be realistic and rationalize.
On the inside, you have a hard core. It's tough to phase you.

You are super productive, and you are able to think anything through.
Focused and super charged, your instincts are a good guide for your next step.




i would go on the alaskan cruise even if everything was not all planned out because i love alaska and want to visit there!

la....



You Are a Seeker Soul





You are on a quest for knowledge and life challenges.
You love to be curious and ask a ton of questions.
Since you know so much, you make for an interesting conversationalist.
Mentally alert, you can outwit almost anyone (and have fun doing it!).

Very introspective, you can be silently critical of others.
And your quiet nature makes it difficult for people to get to know you.
You see yourself as a philosopher, and you take everything philosophically.
Your main talent is expressing and communicating ideas.

Souls you are most compatible with: Hunter Soul and Visionary Soul




me except for expressing and communication ideas, terrrible at that....

so thats all for now, have to go read geometric dimesions and tolerancing for final, since we did all that stuff last quarter...

Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Honor band [05 Dec 2004|12:03am]
[ mood | tired ]

Ok, quick update before i go to bed...

i got to play a cool timpani part because it had six notes in like 14 measures and then repeated itself and instead of using all four drums to avoid major pedal work, i had fun using the pedal and the timpani are actually tuned cool and i could assume the losted note was what it was supposed to be and the highest note was what it was supposed to be.

Anyways, i had fun staying up til two watching two movies saturday night. It is a totally different experiance to sleep in a dorm with college students than doing a summer program where you stay two weeks in a dorm with someone else who is also clueless.

Everytime someone would open the door and come in during the movie, i would think it was my dad telling me it was time to go to bed.... But instead it was a college student and that was kinda weird to me.

Oh and this probably will not sound at all like me, but the guys are way cuter/hotter in college than in high school.

Oh and the drum section at Albion has such fun and i was glad that the honor band was able to play a song with them and rehearse with them because it was sooo much fun.

I wish i didnt have to leave...

anyways i should got to bed, i have to get up at like 6:30am today.... will add more later

now to get that stupid annoying constricting way too much flare at the end dress.

EDIT: Now after the concert, when getting out of the concert i notice red marks on my arms. the cause? the stupid dress... so now i got red bruises, or else the blood has been pushed to the surface or else it is almost a scab like thing and i blieve i might have bled if i tried to do more things with the dress on.... for the albion college thing, i am sooo bringing a fancy shirt and pants just in case i could wear that instead/want to wear that instead.

Alison came over to my house on saturday and she helped put up the christmas tree. which she now hates/despises/doesnt like how it is set up. Anyways, she installed mozilla firefox, which is different than internet explore but i am getting used to it, at least i dont have to refresh a million times for an update.....

*was reading last update* wow that was 14 days ago and i am still wearing the emu clinic wrist band. too bad i will have to take it off for thursdays concert, would have been cool to wear it for the albion honor band. oh well

been playing neopets alot recently, lots of fun, lots of time used playing it.

Albion college high school honor band friday! yay! going to have fun putting together a concert in two days. i signed up to recieve info about wayne state honor band. i think i am addicted to honor bands now... i have a new college requirement it seems, has to have music be a major or minor, too bad that kinda kicks out mich tech and purdue<-has a bands and such, but no majors for music i believe. why must all the good engineering schools only focus on that and not consider that a person is split and loves both engineering class and band class(when i actually am challenged and playing and not playing songs that i have heard and played since 8th grade *cough*sleigh ride*cough*).

*insert crazy song here* that was sung sooooooo much when alison and i were together last saturday, that seems to be my new theme song. it pops into my head alot, exspecially when parents go crazy.

EDIT: oh yeah, when alison came over, she put this cool backround up for me. *looks at old journal entries* it only took her almost half a year to come over her and do that. the entry where i said she would come over and put one up is dated June 2.....

So sad that i didnt get into EMU's honor band, but it doesnt really matter now that i got into Albion College honor band!

I wonder sometimes what in the world nutting writes in the recommendation letter, because well, my playing skills i dont think are good enough... but hey, i got in!

Oh, since it is two days, they are having us sleep in the dorms.
