Marching band has been my life for the past 2 weeks.. and there wasnt too much bad about it.
When 8-5pm practices started last thursday, we began to learn the show, and surprisingly, the drill was alot easier than it has been the last 2 years. Well, it wasnt a piece of cake, but having T.J., the new marching instructor there made everything go along alot smoother. Band really started to get started last week when the dreaded 8am-9pm days began. Marching in the morning was always a breeze because most days we didnt use instruments and it was very cool and usually overcast outside.. which is a blessing, considering it is Georgia in July. The mellophone section sounds wonderful, the rookies are hilarious and we all get along. Pedro has been doing an awesome job as drum major... if only the rest of the band would follow him for most of the show. The band sounds alot more brassly, considering there are now 11 trumpets, compared to last year's 7. Everything is just g r e a t.
Even tho I miss alot of my friends who quit, sometimes I dont miss them as much because band is alot different this year, and I kinda enjoy it alittle better. Alot of the freshies are hilarious... especially the trumpets. Also I love finally be an upperclassman, because that means im always closer to the front of the dinner line.. yum yum.
By thursday night, we had learned all the drill for the whole show.. which is amazing. Esp. compared to last yr when i think we only knew about 1/4 of the show... thats just wow. Everyone has this feeling that maybe this year we wont totally suck at competition. Our performance friday night for family and friends went great too. I think i saw tears in Pedros eyes after the show.. he says it was the best we've ever done... in 5 years. =-D after getting home at 8:30, I went to go see the Village at 9:30, but that show was sold out so we ended up going to the 10:00 one.... along with one third of the band. Its kinda funny because I think it was like a drumline/pit outting thing, although Aaron,the drum captain didnt want to go. But I think i convinced him to go after Pam asked me if I were going, and I said that I wasnt even invited, so I angrily asked aaron why he wasnt participating with this section.... The movie was great, I loved it, and yes I did watch most of it. The twist at the end was kinda predictable, but surprising at the same time...
It was nice to finally spend some time with aaron, since the last 2 weeks had been band, and before that I was out of town for a week. Monday the 26th was our 9 month anniversary.. kinda odd, because sometimes it seems like its only been 9 weeks but then other times it seems like 90 years. Next week his grandparents are going to FL for week and leaving him at home by himself the whole time. But then its not allowed to leave the house or something.. except for band. SO i think I might pop in a few days next week and surprise him. Tuesday I'm soposed to go and get my license, but my mom has been very bitchy and yelling at my lately for having a dirty room, so shes threatend to not let me go and get it once or twice. but I know she wants me to get it, so I wont have to depend on her for rides anymore.. just her car. And anyways I wont be driving to school yet because I still havent taken driver's ed... idk i guess procrastination.
Last weekend I got the college talk from my dad. He asked me what school I was looking at, and I told him that I was undecided, and apparently that is the WRONG answer... ooops. After that response, I got a 20 minute speech on how I am going to Auburn Univ. to become a good ole War Eagle. My stepmom's family bleeds burnt orange and blue, so its implanted in me. Also my dad is building a house and moving to Alabama this year *only 20 minutes from campus* so he says its good if I go to school there, because If i live on campus, its not too far from "home." I'd love to go there, because its a good school, and I think that I do want to do marching band in college, and besides FSU, UGA, or Tech, its one of the only marching bands I'd die to march in.
I'm very bored right now... there is absolutely nothing to do at this house.. besides clean.... *cries*

I'm waiting for my lunch to be delivered *cooley's pizza* so I might as well write a little.
Its been a long time since I updated... lets see... what have i done in the last week.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning i spent hanging out with my cousins in TN. My cousin Simone is like one of my best friends. Me and her manage to laugh about some of the stupidest things, and I really enjoy spending time with her. We spent most of the time gossiping about her many boyfriends ;-) and my one and only lover boy. On tuesday we went to this park to have a picnic and to walk in this water thingie, and saw this ugly ugly ugly woman in the water with this old ancient gross bathing suit on. Plus she had this dikish hair cut and her pubic hairs were showing... and just to top it off, she had on black socks while walking in the water. It was such a bad bad bad sight.... *cries*
I came back home wednesday, only to pack our clothes and get everything together for our mini vacation to Orlando on thursday. We left late thursday night and got there friday morning, and we really didnt do anything friday besides going to Wal-mart and laying around the pool for awhile. This was the family reunion, on my mom's side. So i saw alot of my distant cousins *like our grandparents are cousins*. Again, I spent some time with Simone. Friday night we hung out til midnight just talking and wishing that I had a car and a license so we could get away from the resort and find somewhere to go that wasnt infested with our relatives. On Saturday, I went to Universal Studios... not Islands of Adventure, just Universal. I enjoyed it because I'm always a sucker for those cheesy rides like Terminator 2 3-D, Jaws, and the Jimmy Neutron Nickelodeon ride... which was BA. By far the best ride was The Revenge of the Mummy..finally an inside rollercoaster that doesnt suck ass. But i was disappointed in the MIB ride...it had the longest line in the park *besides Shrek 4-D* but then it was like the buzz lightyear ride at disney... sucky suck suck. And then there was this cool fireworks show over the Lagoon... that was nice. And just to top my day off, I stopped at starbucks in City Walk on the way out of the park. And i was offered tequila shots... so that boosted my confidence, especially since Aaron told me a few days ago that I look very young.
Sunday we ate breakfast and then left on our way back to the good ole GA. And this woman hit the back of our car at one of the toll stations to get onto the FL Turnpike... crazy drivers. Then to top it off, we were stuck in traffic for 4 hours outside of Macon. because there was this 12 car, 4 tractor trailor pile up. When we finally got home at midnight, we had to take our rental car back because my mom wouldnt have a chance to turn it in tomorrow because she would be at work... so that meant I had to drive my moms car *ALONE* following her to Norcross. So i was breaking not one, but two laws.... driving with a learner's and after curfew... im so dangerous. It feels so liberating to drive by myself... I cant wait til August 3rd... I better ace that test in Lithonia. Even tho i wont have my own car, Ill have access to my mom's car when shes home... so it all gravy. And it seems like I'll be riding the big yellow cheese wagon first semester atleast... so that stinks.
Yesterday was the first day of band precamp.... yippeeeee. I spent some time with some ppl who I havent seen in a while... Jordan and Rachel. =-). The weather was very comfortable but the bugs were out like drones... and the air conditioning was out in the bandroom... make it 85 degrees plus humidity from hell. My section had 100% attendance... all 4 of us. There seems to be some good chemistry between the high brass, so thats awesome. All we need to do is to get some of the rookies to talk a little more. I see potential for this season.. g r e a t. But the worse thing is that I miss my friends who have quit... Eric, Becca, Kathy, Spencer, Ben, and Seth and the seniors *esp. Pam... that college girl*
Well I need to call jordan and see if he can give me a ride to the school later today for Day 2 of band hell.
||[03 Jul 2004|10:55pm]
Its a holiday weekend and wow.. everyone is outta town. Kathy is in Penn, Rachel is at mrytle, and everyone else is off vacationing and stuff. And Haley is at a party... i should call her soon to see whats going on over at Rashad's.
Right now im talking to Micah and we realized that we both have this hate for people who go to brookwood.. especially the jews, except for the one kid that was on micah's baseball team and goes to his temple.
Today I dragged my family to borders because I had my gift cards and I need to get my summer reading for LA. These are the books i got-
Dubliners by James Joyce
Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
I guess i'll choose one to read... they all seem kinda interesting. I've got a comedy, a collection of short stories, one about a prosititute and one that seems like some sort of love story... if anyones read of any of these tell me what u think about em.
TOmorrow is the fourth of july... i guess ill sit at home and eat ribs.. yummm..
Yesterday I had a great birthday. Aaron took me out to Applebee's and then to see Spiderman 2. Spiderman was a good movie, but I thought the special effects seemed very poorly done. In most of the fight scenes it looked almost like a video game, especially when Dr. Octopus was throwing around Mary Jane... but I guess movies cant be perfect. After the movie i dragged him into Ross because I just wanted to look around, but somehow he ended up buying me 2 cute halter tops. Well i was going to get them but he insisted on paying since it was my birthday... I love that kid. It was soo funny because as i was brousing he was all hyper and stuff and said some comment about how it was like shopping with his mom because I said i was going to only look in one section but ended up spending an hour there. Aaron is a great boyfriend and he made my 16th birthday a good one.
It doesnt feel any different to be 16, even though i feels like it should because of the privileges and responsibilities that I've gained overthe last 24 hours. I can legally consent to having sex in the state of GA, and I can get married to.... but I'm not rushing to the alter anytime soon. I can now get my license, but my appointment isnt til august 3rd. And I dont have a car nor have I taken driver's ed yet... so I cant drive to school next year either.
The summer seems to be coming to a end and its depressing... First, band camp is getting sooner and sooner... everyday i look at the calendar and notice that its only like 15 days away... and as soon as that ends it always my reminder that school starts in a short 2 weeks. Also, I bought those summer reading books.. *sigh* I love to read, but reading makes me think of school. But then i'm kinda anxious for school to start because (hopefully) Ill have mr. newton again, mrs stimmel, and some other hard but challenging and totally worth it teachers.
I'm listening to my randomly shuffled on WinAmp and the first song that aaron and I ever slow danced to came on... made me feel all gushy inside.
I cleaned and vacuumed my room today/last night and its kinda refreshing to be able to see the floor again. Also i realized that my hair sheds like crazy because there was a ton of hair on the carpet by the mirror... really gross.
I figure that I'll go finish organizing stuff or go start one of this Brit Lit books..
Lets see how multilingual i can pretend to be...

I dont think I've really updated this week.. so lets get to a recap.
Monday- Marching Band get rained out an hour early, so aaron and i went to waffle house, afterwards I went over to Haley's House, where I spent the night. At her house, i was introduced to the great game of ISKETCH!! I always love hanging out with haley... shes so funny, and her family is like mine... its my second home.
Tuesday- Haley and I went to bruster's and to go see stedford wives with Rashad. I hadnt met him before, althought I had heard tons ( mostly good ;-)). He's a cool kid. very funny and pretty hot too! Stedford wives was absoultely hilarious, yet strangely creepy at times. But I loved it, and I'd go see it again.. and i SOO want it when it comes out on DVD. Now, you go see it.. now! After coming home from the movies, I went home.
Wednesday- Haley and I decided that we wanted to go to 6 flags on wednesday since it was one of those bring a friend for 10 bucks days.. and since haley has a season pass and I am a friend... it just works out perfectly. So after my mom got home from work wednesday night, i headed back over to haley's house.
Thursday- Haley and I got up earlier than we normally do to get ready for 6 flags (8:30 am). We ate breakfast, or well haley ate most of my cereal because half way through the bowl i realized that i really dont like milk and cereal.. especially in the mornings. So haley and I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches... (of course while sinigng the song too) for everyone to eat if we got hungry so we wouldnt have to buy tons and tons of food. So then Me and Haley, Kelsey and Cristene, Ian and Ashley headed over for a day full of F U N at 6 flags. Haley, Ian, and I rode every rollercoaster.... Haley and i are wild ladies. Rollercoasters are the shiznit.. and I was soo happy to have haley to ride them with me. We went to go ride superman a second time so that we could sit in the front row, but we got rained out.. sat in the rain for like 40 minutes to realize that it was gonna take hours before the rain would stop and the tracks would dry, and it was about time to leave anyways.. so Haley and I are going to come back after she gets well from surgery and ride superman again. We decided that the georgia scorcher is a good coaster, besides the fact that it mades ur groin hurt like hell... beware guys! But thursday was an awesome day to go, because there were practically no lines and the weather wasnt hot at all. I think the longest line we stood in was for Thunder River, which was like 40 minutes. So we leave six flags around 7 and bring pizza back to haleys.. where we all dry off from being caught in the rain then me, haley, kelsey, and cristene play clue... and i was CLUELESS. I hadnt played the game in bout 8 years, and i had forgotten all the rules.. and I sucked majorly. And then I went home.
Friday- YAAY its my birthday.. finally 16!
||[26 Jun 2004|12:00am]
I took this off of heather's Xanga, and im very bored and very awake... so I'll do this to take up some time until aaron calls...
( Random Survey.. once againCollapse )
||[21 Jun 2004|12:20am]
Try to understand there's an old mistake that fools will make
And I'm the king of them, pushing everything that's good away so
Wont you hold me now (I will not bend I will not break)
Wont you hold me now
Just hold me close to you, just hold me close to you
Just hold me close to you, just hold me close to you, to you
DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL CONCERT!!
Friday Haley surprises me with tickets to saturday night's dashboard confessional concert @ the gwinnet arena as her birthday present for me.. shes is so cool.
yaay.. so this is how the night went.. Haley came to pick me up and my house, and we took a picture of us in our cute clothes.. well i was cute bc i had on these new red flood pants and a blank sleevless shirt. So then Haley's parents drove us up to the gwinnett arena for a night of fun.. and i had my disposable camera ready to go.. we walk up to the entrance and there's this huge line. and haley and i were like.. omg i hope we dont really have to wait in this.. so we just kinda merged into the middle, and got our bags checked for digital cameras, stud belts, and other controband weapons of that sort. So then we finally get in and buy our tshirts.. and head for the floor.. only to be told that we need to go back to front door to get some freaking wrist bands.. so then we climb back up the stairs and have this strange guy put on our wrist bands. So then Haley and I sit on the floor.. anticipating the first band... yaay i was so excited.
The Get Up Kids- I knew one or two of their songs, they were very energetic, nice sound, awesome drummer.. who looks kinda like dylan godlewski.
Thrice- Not my kinda band. They were good.. and a few of their members were hot, but their music was very punkish and I couldnt really understand the words to their songs, but it was still okay. and they had a great bass player.
And finally,... what I had been waiting for.. and they didnt come on until a little before 10.. DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL! *faints* I knew they were going to be good, but oh my Lord.. they are an awesome band. Nevermind the lead singer is the most beautiful man ive ever seen in concert with tatoos up his arms.. his voice is heavenly. Being the music geek that I am, i was fascinated with their whole lineup of guitars... I think Chris (lead singer) had 4 electric and 3 acoustic.. all so pretty and Scott had 4 basses, and John had 2 acoustic and 2 electric.. or something close to those numbers. Not to mention the awesome drum set and the 2 pianos on stage. The first song, Chris sang solo and acoustic.. sooo pretty. And then for the next hour and a half.. everyone was rocking out.
I really had fun last night. Haley, thanks for the birthday present ;-) Of course my ears were ringing until about noon today.. but eh I dont care.. i had so much fun.
And next time Dashboard comes through ATL.. everyone should go see them, because its worth it. Their music sounds better live, I think because you actually hear bass, piano, and drums.. so its more "rockish" and a few songs even reminded me of Something Corporate. (another band that i want to see in concert) Also I must say that Dashboard are great performers.. like their show is worth seeing. Because there are plenty of bands out therewhose music I love, but their show isnt really worth going to.. but dashboard puts on a great show...
I am offically in love with Chris Carraba.
(dont worry, aaron is already jealous.. i was telling him about the concert when i got home and i kept saying "omg it was so good.. ahhhh" and he was like.. STOP HAVING AN ORGASM!.. silly boy)
k, its gettiing late.. sleep time!

that last entry.. i meant to write about some other stuff, but idk.. i guess i just stopped writing or something.. and then i forgot to finish it. Well right now im working on getting the motivation to make a new layout for this thing... blue is starting to get annoying... and I have the time, because its summer, I just dont have the ambition within me

guess whose back.. back again...
Sorry, i just heard that song on VH1's- Best Week Ever. I dont know where VH1 came up for the idea of this show.. but omg its so funny.. All these comedians and people.. making jokes about celebrities.. how can u not love it?
Ronald Reagan died last week... he wasnt exactly my favorite president. Like all presidents, he did bad and good things. God Bless his soul, but its time for the nation to move on. He had Alzheimer's, which is a horrible disease to live through. I dont know how it feels to not know yourself or anyone else, but i'm whereever he is now is ALOT better than him still being alive.
||[10 Jun 2004|08:09pm]
SO i havent really updated for a while.. i posted this long survey yesterday.. the results were pretty interesting..
So whats up Tamara, you may ask?
And I would say.. jack shit.
(sad, isnt it)
Right now I'm listening to my UGA Redcoats CD... i am such a band nerd.... speaking of band, thats most of my life. Aaron called me at 8 this morning, saying that Barnes called him and cancelled our "leadership meeting" at his house this weekend. So that left me free for most of the day. At 1:00 Aaron and i went to the movies, and since I didnt feel like seeing Shrek or Harry Potter, we say "Breaking All The Rules". It was a funny movie.. with Jamie Foxx and Giselle Union.. and omg Morris Chestnut.. hes is so sexy *drools* It was kinda special that I hung out with him today because Saturday he's taking the ACT and then going on vacation to Florida for a week with his dad and grandparents.. he's excited because its going on vacation but then i get the feeling that he doesnt want to go.. because its gonna be him and parents and grandparents.. poor kid. And since mine and his parents are against overnight trips.. no vacationing time for us.
After the movies,. we walked up to Mah Jongg Chinese restuarant.. the food wasnt the best either. They were closing for lunch and about to get ready for dinner as we walked in, so i got the feeling like they were rushing us out.. oh well, food is food.. and it tasted decent, so I ate. After that we went over to hibbet sports because i need a pair of shorts for marching band... yaay my maroon colored shorts!
Walking to the chinese place I saw this sign on the door of big league barbers that said- "Receptionist Wanted. great job for a student, afternoon hours, $7.50 per hour" .. and i was like.. OMG I should apply for that. Now I shall make a pro and con list for why I want that job..
1) Receptionst- not too demanding, something I can do, that doesnt require too much manual labor or intellectual genius.
2) Afternoon hours- depending on the hours, my mom could take me to work when she gets home from work.. almost perfect. And i wouldnt be working like 10 hour days, so I would still have time for my boyfriend, friends, family, etc..
3) Great Job for student- If i could get off fridays and some saturdays, and not have to go in til about 7 on tuesdays and thursdays... that would fit into my schedule during the fall with school. And i can work everyday during the summer except for monday nights and the last 2 weeks in july
4) The pay- $7.50/hour I dont think i need to say much about that.. its 2. 35 more than minimum wage, and I could really use that much money to pay for some of a car.. and with me getting my license in August, id have a little bit of money saved up to contribute to my car fund.
5) A Job is a job.. it gets me out of the house. my mom always says how I need to find something to do with my time because Im always complaining about how bored I am... and a job seems almost perfect.
1) I dont know anyone who works there, so its a new place to work.. but I like getting to know new people and places, so maybe this is a pro..
2) It's a job.. its means coming in when I dont want to, and all that other stuff.. =-/
3) My mom is against the idea of me working. Especially with me getting a not so great grade in Alg last year, my mom wants me to focus more on my grades.. but I think next year will be better.. and right now its summer. so there is no school work to worry about. And she always brings up the idea that- "I dont want you to work, because as soon as u start working, your never going to be able to stop, so I want you to wait as long as possible before u even think about that"
4) Me with a job that gives me money probably means that I wont get allowance anymore from my parents.. but I'm willing that have allowance taken away if i can get a job.
Hey.. lookie there... pros outweigh the cons..
I think its time for me to have another serious talking with my parents about ur baby entering the work force.
Now That I think about it, this is really ironic. Most people are sitting at work, wishing that they didnt have to work.. while I'm sitting here wishing that I can get a job. I think im responisble enough and I'm ready to get out there and make some money for myself. Its hard to describe it, but I have this drive inside of myself to do well on my own. I hate relying on other people. Yea, sure, im 15 and i have to rely on my parents, but i kinda want it to be just a little easier on my mom. She's a single parent raising 3 girls, and i know its realy hard on her.. especially financially.
It's 8:00 on a thursday.. isnt there soposed to be something good on TV around this time?

It feels so good not to wake up at 5:17 everymorning to go to school.
*takes deep breath of the smog filled grayson air*
Friday was graduation. It was... well as fun as graduation gets. Sitting in strange chairs on the floor of the freezing gwinnett arena isnt the most interesting thing. BUt the floor was super freezing (because of the ice underneath) so I was hoping that maybe my spit from the spit valves would freeze, causing a dangerous patch of ice, causing injury to certain woodwind player... *grins*
But there were no injuries, or ice patches.
After graduation, aaron and i got into a car wreck.. nothing serious, no was hurt. We were coming out of the Publix shopping center onto Cooper, by the wendy's and there was a car in the turning lane going into the parking lot. Well, aaron went to make the left turn as that car hopped out of the turn lane and continue to go straight.. so the cars collided. Thank god no one was hurt or anything.. just some car damage. Well on the van the whole side door was screwed up, but surprisingly on Aarons civic just the paint on the front bumper was scraped off.. kinda weird. And the people driving the van were like russians who didnt speak english, from Massachuttes, and didnt have proof of insurance on them.. not cool. The cop told aaron the accident was his fault because they other car was on the main road and we werent.. which his grandparents disagreed with... so aaron got a "citation".. no biggie.
Saturday I sat at home until Pam's graduation party. I had a really nice time... I love hanging out with my goofy friends. And Johnny is the ultimate scattergories partner. I met some new people.. like alex, nick, rob, pam's cousin from TX, and kathy ;-)... nice kids.
Sunday my mom took me and my sisters roller skating.. yes roller skating is still cool. I had fun hanging with my sisters.. some good quality time is fun. I tried to bring the boyfriend along, but he mumbled something about not knowing how to skate.. blah blah blah.
Monday my family and aaron and his mom went to the Atlanta Jazz Festival. Lots of fun. Jazz music is cool. Also there was food, and ice cream, and cars... *drools over the Cadillac SRX* After going t the festival, me and my family went to Ted's Bison Grill... I have a new found love for Bison Burgers. They have some of the best service in Atlanta. That's where I wanna go from prom dinner next year. My burger was so big that I couldn't eat it all... most of it is sitting in the refridgerator, waiting for me to eat it from lunch/dinner.
Today is the first day of *rookie* camp... yaay im so excited for band.. 4 mellophones.. ive heard! But Allie wont be there this week.. *tear* I cant wait til this afternoon...
Now I need a shower.. and by the way.. "ban the tube top tonite"

PASSIONATE LOVER. You love to love, always looking
for a relationship. You cannot live without it.
Your lover must be passionate and you want
that you and your partner melt into each other.
He/She should not try to take the domination .
You dont want a relationship without passion,
and the sexuality plays a big part. The first
moment you meet him/her is one of the most
important. There has to be something between
you , you cannot explain. From the first moment
on everything must fix. But when this passion
disappears you disappear to. For you it is
better to leave than to see your love
PLEASE VOTE, I want to know what you think about my
quiz, I worked hard on it.You can always
message me or tell me how I can improve that

This morning I woke up too early (9:30), and then i started to clean and wash clothes and that kinda thing.. and then i got kinda bored so i watched some quality talk shows... Jerry Springer is amusing.
Later, Me, Aaron, my 2 sisters and aarons grandma went out to chik fil a for lunch.. I love his gma, shes so nice for taking us all to eat. =D
RIght now the temperature in my room is higher than the one outside.. this isnt right.
But the other rooms in my house are perfectly cool.. damn this bonus room.

Ive realized that is sucks that im 15, without a license, and without a car.
July 2... its coming soon! and then i get my license on Aug 2.. w00t.
So i'll be sitting around the house this summer.. someone call!

Ahh.. it seems like its been forever since I last updated.
Today was the last day of school... THANK GOD!! it seemed like this year went by so fast. By far, it was the best yet, and i really enjoyed being a sophomore, but damnit, it feels good to be an upperclassman! (c/o `06) Last week we got schedules for next year.. its in my AIM info but i might as well put it on here for the billions of random people online to see that yes, i am going to die as a junior at the grayson high school.
1- Wilhoite- Senior Gifted LA- yaay for british lit.. anti yaaay for hard teacher
2- Barnes- Symphonic Band- yaay for french horn section.. anti yaay for Brad quitting
3- Beers- Latin 2- yaay for Latin two, and the awesomeness that shall come with... anti yaay for mrs hawkins not teaching latin.. damnit i hate french! but then again this new guy is cool (as she tries to convince me) so it should be an interesting year in latin.
4- Newton- Adv Alg and Trig.. yaay for Uncle Russ!! yaay for my senior friends being in my class. Aaron, Christie, and Joseph!.. anti yaay for math.. its not my friend.. but then again i do like triangles, so this should be interesting.. and there's a chance that the newton might not teacher trig next year.. so i hope he keeps this class!
5- Stimmel- AP Physics- yaay for the stimmel.. i heard that shes hard, but shes super nice and a funny lady... anti yaay for physics- the subject just doesnt make me excited... it envolves math.. so..ummm.. not looking forward.
6- DeLong- AP US History- yaay for history (my fav sub) but anti yaay for DeLong.. hes a hard ass, right winged teacher.. this should be interesting. But then I have a group of my fav liberals in my class- Ashley, Micah, and Rachel.. so I think the democrats should start a revolt against this evil delong and dethrown him from his tower of terror over Grayson.
I did well on my finals.. passed them all but math.. barely passed math with a 72, but eh, atleast I passed.. and next year im taking a college prep level math class, so it should be a little easier on my math defecient brain.
To celebrate the last day of school, Aaron and I went to see "Envy" at the movies today.. i must say it was piss your pants hilarious.. everyone should go see it... well maybe not piss your pants, but if u get bored.. go see the movie for a good laugh. I mean.. how can vaporizing shit not be funny... two thumbs up for Jack Black and Ben Stiller.. and also the girl who played the chick with Terett's Syndrone on Deuce Bigalo is in the movie.. shes a funny one. ..."Where'd the shit go?"
I also went to Band registration today.. im going to miss all my friends who arent doing MB this year.. *starts the funeral march music*- Eric, Becca, Ben, Spencer, and all u other homos...*grabs a tissue*
But then I was talking 2 pedro this evening, and hes so excited about band.. as i am... and yea.. its gonna be awesome. but first we have to get through graduation on friday at the gwinnett arena *shoots myself during Pomp and Circumstance.... slits my wrists during my 59 measures of rest in Pachelbel's Cannon.....kills the rest of the band during the other 5969 sucky songs we must play*... and last, not least.. *kills the chorus during the Alma Mater* <~~ Yes, i can spell that latin phrase, it was on my final today! ;-)
I'm going to start back to writing in here more often.. since I have nothing to do during the summer.. besides marching band on monday evenings during June and the first weeks of July.. but then band camp starts, and WOO LAH! I have a life.. who would imagine!?!
The week before precamp starts, im going to DIsneyworld for a family reunion.. this should be interesting.I should try and bring the boyfriend with me.. so i can keep sane and not kill my country hick relatives from Alabama or the nothern ones from Michigan.
I really should start hanging out with friends more often.. i need some friendship in my life. Anyone wanna come bathing suit shopping with me sometime this week.. i need something to wear in chlorine water during the summer.
Anyone going to Thurman's pool shin dig tomorrow? I dont think i can come, because Ive got the younger clones of myself to look after..and by the way, Kathy- Ashley wanted me to tell u that ur invited... ummm yea.. I havent talked 2 u today, so I hope u read this before 3 tomorrow.. *cough* im sorry for not getting this to you earlier.
Well, im off to call the boyfriend.. or do this marching band scavenger hunt.. because I want my gillians gift card! (hhaa.. i already won 5 at the band banquet... i will go to Gillans sometime this summer and RULE)
Later whores.. leave some comments... u know the kind telling me that im so sexy and that u wanna hang out with me soo much this summer.. and that im so adorable, and u want my boyfriend and u think we're so hot together, and how I should rule the world...
And this song im listening to (Story of the Year- Until the day I die) is.. umm interesting. Its one of those songs that keep me from listening to the radio.. see, if I listen to the radio I would hear it 40 times an hour and make me tear out my ear drum, so now im just not listening to the radio until the novely of this song goes off..
I leave u with these lyrics.
When I am down, and oh my soul so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.
Josh Groban is my new hero.
*melts over his overly awesome voice..*

I havent updated in what seems like forever. I guess ive spent more time sitting in my room staring at a calculator, piece of paper, and a Alg 2 book then I have online the last month. .... i hate math, and that subject will be the death of me
Lets see if i can sum everything thats happened in the last mont into a paragraph or 2.
Aaron and I are going strong.. almost 7 months. I really, truely do love that nerd, and hes such an awesome person.
Last 2 weeks of school are here.. im so excited for this summer.
THis week has been awesome, and here's why-
Monday- Got elected to Junior class student council =D
Friday- At the band banquet, the leadership team for next year was annoucned.. this will be AWESOME-
Drum Major- Pedro Paz
Assistant Drum Major- Kim Tingle
Color Guard Captain- Erin O'Brien
CG Squad Leader- Brittney Snyder
Drum Captain- Aaron Plummer
Band Captain- Heather Simmons
Flute Section leader- Kim Tingle
Clarinet Section leader- Rebecca Manor
Low Brass section leader- Alex Johnson
Trumpet Section Leader- Keyan Rahimzadeh
Mellophone Section Leader- Tamara Poole
Band President- Heather Simmons
Band Vice President- Blake Peerson
The leadership team of next year is going to kick some serious ass. Im so excited about everything. I'm sure Barnes had some hard choices to make, since there were soo many awesome people trying out for not alot of spots.
I am so happy for Erin, with making color guard captain. I know she loves color guard and she was so shocked when she got captain.. especially as a Junior. I know shes gonna do great as their leader, and make next year's color guard the best yet. And also it was so sweet, because Erin's mom was crying.. awww..
And especially.. i am so proud of Aaron. Earlier this year he was so pumped up about being eligible for drum captain. And at one point he was even wearly because he wasnt sure if he could take on the responsiblity of leading 23 drummers.. but now hes over his fears, and ready to take on his senior year as drum captain.. omg i am dating one hot sex drumming beast.
OMG I AM A SECTION LEADER *screams* Next year.. ahh so great. Keyan and Me as section leaders.. and Pedro as drum major!! Pedro looked so genuinely happy to be drum major.. and i was so excited, i stood up with rachel and aaron and clapped and screamed for my favorite Brazillian whore. I know he has great plans for the band next year.. and i place alot of my faith in his leadership skills. last year he was my squad leader, and althought it wasnt perfect at times, I realized that everytime he did for me and my section worked out for the best.. bc i truely do believe that we are the most disciplined and focused section of the band.. thanks to Pedro and Patrick.
