Well, I suppose an update is in order. bwha

I really excited about this semester - I really like all of my classes, and on top of that I'm in a lot of small chamber ensembles including a chorale group. I never thought I enjoyed singing this much. But yeah - I plan to REALLY focus on my playing this semester with Dr. Thompson back and all. 

I think a really cool part of being in the music program is you grow really close to the people around you. You can always count on seeing them the next semester, since you practically share the same life. 

Another thing I noted about being away from home - I can focus more on controling these horrible physcological problems I've inherited from me dear ol' mum. Nothing hear seems to ignite it as much as home did. Although I'm misunderstood in my attitude a lot, it's nothing I can't seem to handle or let get to me.  

ANYWAY. Tomorrow is my Bday and my parents are coming down Saturday to take me, Chelsea, Chelsea, Jack and Mike (who is hitching a ride down - FREAKING AWESOME) out to dinner. It shall be an AWESOME weekend. :)

DUDE. People haven't written in so long my entire friends page is freaking empty. goodness folks. 

School is going well...I've gotten used to the music school trying to slam you down every chance they get. They can just kiss my ass. :) Yet...I love the music school.

I was practicing for my jury the other day and it's absolutely amazing to play with a piano accompaniest. Nothing better. 

Tomorrow is halloween, and we've been encouraged to dress up. I can't wait. Chelsea's really gotten into the mood of halloween since she just scared the SHIT OUT OF ME by placing a fake spider in my bag. I screamed so fucking loud...I hate spiders. *shudder* She also put a fake tongue on my laptop...stupid whore. hahaha

Of course with college comes the social disorder, and I'm waiting for a crash. I've never fallen this hard before, and it scares me. I don't know what to do, and anyone I talk to doesn't know either. My hearts being messed with and I take most of the blame for letting it be. I wish I could be more open about things.

On the bright side of things, I absolutely love college. It's weird how fast Morgantown can become your home. 

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
and though you're singing, god believe me
Your memory will carry on
You'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The end of world is waiting

Your romances you reel in from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all!
So paint it black and take it back
And let's shout aloud at prayer!
Defy unto the end we hear the call!

So carry on
We'll carry on
and though your singing, god believe me
Your memory will carry on

And carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches

On and on we carry through the fears
Disappointed faces of your peers
Take a look at me
Cause I could not care at all

Do or die
You'll never make me
Because I won't
You'll never take my heart
And though they try

They'll never break me
They want it all
They wanna break this heart

I won't explain
Or say I'm sorry
I'm not ashamed

I'm gonna show my scar
Give the chair
Now while I'm broken
Listen here!
And listen to me!

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're singing, god believe me
Your memory will carry on
You'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches on!

David Bowie will be a guest on Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants, playing a character called Lord Royal Highness in a show that will air next year. Bowie, 59, said his 6-year-old daughter, Alexandria Zahra, is a huge SpongeBob fan, and they watch the show together. Bowie, whose songs include Fame, Young Americans and Space Oddity, was previously the voice of Boz in David Cage's 1999 Omikron: The Nomad Soul.

That's one episode I will NOT be missing. lol

College is still awesome. It's getting harder but, eh. What ya gonna do? I finally got my jury piece and I'm excited cause it's a Beethoven piece and freaking physco. I'm not nervous yet about it, but I am nervous about coughing up the money for a piano player, which is going to be way over one hundred...god damn college might as well just tap your veins. 

I've become slightly addicted to practicing, which is good. I've never enjoyed practicing as much as I do, perhaps because my sound is so much better and it doesn't frustrate me lol.

I never would of thought so, but college is SO much better when you have good friends. :) They make the experience. 

I miss back home cause I didn't get my chance to come home this weekend. WE GOT A NEW PUPPY. :D I'm so excited.

I've got a New Age girl (tell us what she's like)
Environmentalist girl (does she ride a bike)
She has a crystal necklace (does she spend a lot of cash)
Though her vibes are rather reckless (she's heading for a crash)

Oh her flowing skirt is blowing in a transcendental wind
And she wonders without knowing where did we begin

You know, she drives wind car (how does she like it)
It doesn't get her far (why she doesn't bike it)
But it gets her to where she's going
I don't know, I don't know where that is
I wish I knew
I don't know where she's going and I don't know where she's been
All I know that lovin' her has got to be a sin

Today was awesome. I thought this week was going to suck but it has started off nice. I have a bunch of tests this week cause of midterms so I've been freaking out, but Chelsea, another Chelsea, Jack, Joe, Tim and I went to eat and stayed at the cafe for like 2 hours just goofing off. It was a blast and it somehow managed to lower my stress level. Then we came home, decorated for Halloween and colored pictures. Now my attitude is BRING IT ON, WEEK.  haha

And for some reason I'm incredibly excited about Halloween. I hear it gets really crazy here at that time. mwhahaha. AND! Theres a possibility that I get to be a muskateer! mwha! One of my dreams just might come true...

Anyway, I'm still looking forward to the weekend. :) 

I remember feeling low
I remember losing hope
I remember all the feelings and the day they stopped

We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent

So its been a while since I've updated. (for me anway) :P 

Things are going pretty well...getting good grades an all. I'm very nervous about my piano midterm cause my teacher sucks and I can't understand a word she's saying. I guess I'll manage though cause Chelsea has been helping me. History believe it or not is like my best grade, lol. On my last test my teacher actually wanted to keep copies of my essays for future records. I was like schaweet!! 

The random pains in my ear have become more frequent. It was ringing the other day (which is completely normal) but then my hearing all together phased out for a couple seconds and all I could hear was a distant drone. It freaked me out enough to tell my mom so she's getting me a doctor's appointment. It shouldn't be anything serious, but it never hurts to check.

I was prepared to write a long ass update on how my last week has been, but I decided I don't feel like it...maybe another day. Basically, I've really gotten the hang of things at college a lot better. I've also decided that I'm willing to wait for some things that I normally would be very impaitent about.

Where love is planted O there it grows
It grows and blossoms like a rose
It has a sweet and pleasant smell
No flower on Earth can it excel

O love is handsome and love is fine
And love's a jewel while it is new
But when it is old it grows so cold
And fades away like morning dew

I was walking down the hallway of the CAC the other day, and some random guy was playing Ziggy Stardust on his guitar. That's when it passed through my mind that the CAC is probably the coolest place on earth. 

Anyway, Chelsea and I were talking the other day about how the lives of music majors suck. Everyone agrees but we all say the same thing. "Our lives suck, but we love what we're doing and it makes everything worthwile." That doesn't make much sense unless your one of those people who sleeps and eats outside practice rooms and lockers in the CAC. 
I just got really pissed off the other day...our tests are already REALLY hard compared to basic classes and the guy who makes our theory/aural tests told the teachers that "they weren't grading it hard enough." WTF! Are they TRYING to make it as hard as possible? That really bothers me.

Earlier today I was eating my lunch consisting of crackers in front of my locker and Jack came buy. :) We talked and joked for a while then Chelsea^2 came buy and we talked/joked some more. It was fun. But I'm horrible at this stuff and on the walk home, I was ready to throw myself in front of traffic. I wish SOMETHING in my life could be easy.

Pretty Please?

I've nothing much to offer
There's nothing much to take
I'm an absolute beginner
And I'm absolutely sane
As long as we're together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same

Had you been there tonight
You might know how it feels
To be struck to the bone
In a moment of breathless delight!
Had you been there tonight
You might also have known
How the world may be changed
In just one burst of light!
And what was right seems wrong
And what was wrong seems right!


I feel my soul on fire!


My world if he's not there!


The color of desire!


The color of despair!

So let me tell you about my night...

Next door was doing shots and my roomates drug me over  with them...It was fun to say the least. After one, I decided that vodka was the nastiest thing on the face of the planet. But that really didn't stop me from taking two more shots. It's a strange appeal...
Anyway, I didn't get drunk and they were surprised I could hold so much for my size and owing to the fact that it was my first time. However, I did get tipsy. That feeling that the whole world is rocking back and forth and you can't walk in a straight line. It was kinda fun cause it felt like I was in one of those fun houses. lol. So, everyone else took like a million shots and still wanted to go out. (Matt took a shot of everclear on fire and still wanted to go out - yes, he came over this morning with burn marks on his face.) We left (by this time I was actually pretty good - only a few stumbles in me) to find a frat house but Matt was so lost he merely ended up taking us in a circle, and over a roof. So they went out to a club and Christina and I went to WVU's "Up All Night" in which we got food before catching the "drunk bus" back to Pierpont. 

We went out to breakfeast this morning and I can proudly say I woke up with no headache. :) Anyway, lots of stupid stories to laugh at. 

Overall, I'm glad I did it and I had fun. Taking shots with close friends who truely care about your well being, and yet still know how to have a blast. 

And the best news? I TOOK PICTURES. They'll be up as soon as I get them developed and use up the rest of my film.

Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In Time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle
