Whoa..it's been about a century since my last update. Not like it's causing anyone pain, but I'm just saying.

I'm not going to talk about anything from the distant past...just the present and recent past.

Things have been going pretty smoothly. I don't have school this week being that it's midterm week. I had to go in for Spanish today and on Thursday I have pre-calc..ew. I'm really thankful about having this week off because my Hofstra audition is on Saturday and I really need time to practice. But I have to play less than I thought for that audition which is a good thing. I'm not fretting much over it. Honestly, I feel secure about it and I think I'll be fine...that is, if I don't let my freaking nerves get to me.
I just can't wait for all this audition business to be over with. I'm so damn tired of playing the same four pieces everyday. It's not that I dislike them, but I want to work on some new stuff.

Anyway...I made a list of some changes that I'd like to make this year...
-Excerise more...preferably jogging
-Do more art
-Read more
-Stop feeling intimidated by other people
-Eat less crap
-Sleep more
-Clean my room more often
It's pretty basic and general..but you know, a few simple changes can go a long way.

By the way, I watched Little Miss Sunshine a few days ago. It's really good...one of my new favorite movies. I definitely reccommend watching it, it'll put you in a good mood if you're not in one already.

Yesterday was siiiick.
I got to stay home from school to see The Color Purple! =D Uncle Frank got free tickets from this guy and he wanted to take me for my birthday. So he convinced my mom..and she let me.
I took the train ma'self and when I got to Penn Station I got a bit discombobulated. I usually go up the staircase near Starbucks. But this time the train stopped near a staircase on the opposite side and after walking around like a confused fool for 10 minutes, I managed to discover it.
So anyway...the show was beautiful. It was really amazing. The music was great. I loved it. The only thing was, our seats were really far away and there was an annoying group of kids behind us who wouldn't shut up. HOWEVER, during intermission we just scooted on down to the unfilled seats, which were VERY good. So it worked out fine in the end.
After the show, Uncle Frank thought it would be cool if we got 1/2 price tickets to see another show. So we decided to buy tickets for Company which I loved! I really enjoyed the music and I loved that the performers played the instruments onstage. I was amazed at how they played wind instruments and sang without fainting.
Well...going back...before the show we were trying to figure what to eat. Eventually we just decided to hell with it, let's get McDonald's. It was actually quite a snazzy McDonald's if you ask me.
Right after we went to the Virgin Megastore which is always fun. We both wound up buying Fame...only $10!
Yep..that's it. I thought it was pretty sweet that I got to see two shows in a day while I barely ever get the chance to see any shows.

You Belong in Greenwich Village

Avant garde and bohemian, you're quick to adopt new ideas and lifestyles.
And while you're a bit less weird these days, you still have a "live and let live" philosophy.



You Are Sunrise

You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.

What's with this Tower Records going out of business nonsense??
Where the hell are we supposed to buy cd's now? I know we could buy music online and everything, but I find it more enjoyable to be able to go to a record store for music. The only other places I could think of are Best Buy and Target. But Best Buy's kind of far and Target barely has anything.
I kind of had a weird attachment to Tower Records. I'll really miss it.
But on the bright side...they're having humongous sales.

Yeah so...
I had a pretty sweet weekend. The downside is I had to take the SAT's. But on the bright side, I don't have to take them ever again. I feel like I did really well on the reading parts, but I think I bombed the math. Grrr math, you're always bringin' me down!
Anyway...I got to go to the city afterwards, but I didn't get to see the Grey Gardens thing. It was too late. We were going to eat at this Chinese restaurant called Congee Village, but it was mad crowded. I think that was the most bizarre menu I have ever seen. Some of the things they had were goose intestines, pork stomach with porridge, frog, fish head, and snails (I didn't even know Chinese people ate snails)Those are all things I would never even want to sniff. Well, since we couldn't go there, we got Korean food which was really good. I never had Korean food before and I was pleasantly surprised. After that, we went to the movies and saw Little Children which was amazing. It was a little disturbing, but I really loved it.

The first five people who decide to respond to this post, will get some form of art, by me, about them. I make no guarantees about quality or type, but I will assure that I will give it good effort and that the art will be individual to you, so if you get a mixed CD or some sort of painting doodle, yours is the only one like it. The only catch, of course; as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own journal as well.
