I'm still here
Dear God it's been forever since I've updated. This semester is non stop fun....I can't take it anymore. I'm going to try to start updating a little more, but finals are coming up soon...and now the holidays so we're gonna get slammed at work. ugh.
I wanted to let everyone know that I got my tattoo, not the cross I talked about earlier. Too expensive. I ended up getting "scars/cuts" on my left wrist. This is symbolic in the way that our open wounds allow everyone to see who we are inside, and what we've been through in our lives. I love it. I got it this past weds. It's amazing. Small yet beautiful.
Just wanted to drop by...and let you guys know I'm still here. Miss you all!

This past week was the worst ever. except one thing went right, that was the My Chemical Romance concert. It rocked!! Gerard is amazing, and absolutely hot when he's sweating...*drools* My friend Stella had the best time!
What sucked about this week was that we found out monday that another of our family friend's passed away last Saturday. He had been suffereing from cancer for 8 years on and off. He had just gotten a clean bill of health, and Saturday morning he passed away. I guess he got up walked around that morning, but then got tired again and went back to bed, but never woke up.
Jim, I know your up there playing the "heavenly" slots...better be winning some big bucks. You are a guardian angel to me. My teddy bear I miss you!
*sigh* I guess it's true. When it rains, it pours.
Miss all of you. Sorry I can't update as much, but like I've said a billion times, this semester is jammed packed. I'm trying to catch up!

I can't believe it, I haven't updated in like a week. School has been nuts right now. Thank God I got a break for a couple days, no homework YAY! It's so much stuff, but I love it and I guess I wouldn't have it any other way.
Music theory, now that's a crazy class. We're going to be analyzing Beethoven's 8th&9th symphony. I have to get the sheet music that has every instrument on there. How cool is that?!?!?!
I also started my voice lessons last Friday. Anna is a great teacher, and I'm very happy that she is my voice teacher. She's tough, but, she's amazing. I love it so far, and I've only had two classes.
Tomorrow night...I'm seeing My Chemical Romance with my friend Stella. I'm so psyched. GAH!!! I can't wait!!!!!
so..now I have something to say. I will only say this though. I did tonight, the one thing I promised myself I would never do again. Not because of feelings I have, but because of wanting to remember what it felt like, why I did it in the first place. And to tell you the truth, it still feels as good as when I did it the first time...."the scars remind us......"
I swear I have more homework in a week than I did in a month of High School. I'm going crazy. I can't do it....too much of Harmonic Minors, Melodic Minors, intervals. Oh and then there's piano, writing, and more intervals and scales.
*bangs head on desk repeatedly*
Oh well, it's my major, and my love. I'll do it....and I'll learn it...and love it!
So, two years now that I've had my beautiful car. *sigh*...it seems like yesterday I was at the lot picking her out...hahaha....such a good car too. *pets it* I bought her a seat cover...has a skull on it. The box said it's the Grim Reaper, but he really doesn't look like the Grim Reaper...whatever..it's cool.
My other big issue I'm thinking over right now is I'm getting my first tattoo hopefully in the next couple months. I want it on my forearm, and it's a cross for sure. But...here's the two ideas I'm thinking of:
1. Gothic style cross with skull on there. Vines w/thorns wrapped around the middle section of cross, blood dripping down. Kind of representing, the crucifiction of Jesus, and death. My religion and beliefs kinda mixed together.
2. Gothic style cross but only with the vines and thorns...blood dripping. This represents mainly my religion. (my mom came up with this one)
I could always put the skull somewhere else, but I don't know. *sigh*
Well, for now i"m gonna work on my writing assignment. let me know which one you guys think is better.
I just wanted to tell everyone that I'm sorry I haven't been posting or commenting as much. It isn't that I don't want to, or am not reading your entries. I am...and i'm trying to catch up with all of you. This semester is just so hetic. Music theory litterally takes up every spare time that I have. I know a few have removed me from friend's lists...I'm sorry. I hope you understand why I haven't been on.
I am reading, even though I'm not commenting. I love you all...so I'll be on when I can..and definately comment as much as possible. Or that all these damn intervals and scales will allow me.

Labor day weekend. Meant for relaxation...BBQ's with the family....and just doing nothing.
Homework is the first thing on my to-do list which I have managed to skip over until tonight. I have to do it. Old Navy has been my life the past couple days, and also listening to my new Cd's. YAY!
Well, one CD isn't "new" persay. I finally got Green Day's American Idiot....I love it. Wake me when September Ends is such a great song...it's my 2nd favorite from the album.
I got the QAF season 5 soundtrack...mostly cuz Personal Jesus by Marilyn Manson is on there....and I just love that scene that it goes to. hehe...but really the soundtrack is really good. So far, Season 3 and Season 5 are my favorite seasons and soundtracks.
It's amazing...the show ended almost a month ago, and I still giggle when I hear songs that were on the show. Carolyn was behind a "kinnetic" truck and had to call me and tell me about it. This show will always be apart of us...how cool is that??
Alrighty..off to do 9 pages of scales....writing, fixing, etc.
My God school is really taking up all my time. I haven't updated for a few days.
My classes are so cool. I'm learning everything and anything about music. I'm learning piano, tons and tons of theory, cool songs with choir. And hopefully soon I'll be starting my private voice lessons, which will end with a recital at the end of the semester.
I'm keeping busy and it's wearing me out. I have lots of homework, plus work. I'm beat. But hopefully my body will get use to this and I won't feel as run down in the coming weeks.
Gas....ah yes...the thing that fuels my car. I'm putting on about 40-50 miles on my car a day. Which may not seem like a lot to some, but for me that's a big deal. Now with gas prices going up because of wonderful Katrina....this is going to be great. I'm gonna go broke. But all those poor people in LA...my god...it's scary.
Well, off to do homework. Later!

Wow...it's been a while since I updated.
Well, the exciting is that my life is boring.....grrrrrrrrrrr.
School...ah school...came back and bit me in the ass. Yep..I'm back....and yippe fucking do. Thank God it's all my music classes, so yeah...but shit this stuff is going deeper than ever...which is good, cuz that's what I want, but still. I'm gonna go overboard all the theory and crap.
So...that's the big exciting thing this week. YAY....bleh

So..yeah....I ended up going to the concert....IT FUCKING ROCKED!!!!!!!!!
30 seconds to mars and H2O opened for the Used. H2O is a band from the Hard Core NYC scene...so it was a little different, but they are really good. 30 seconds to mars...not a huge fan of theirs, but they are really good live.
What can I say about the Used that I haven't already said the other two times I've seen them. They rock...that's all there is to it. They opened with Take it Away, and ended with Sound Effects and Overdramatics....which is my favorite song on the album. They played I Caught Fire, Belimic...all the good songs...which they don't really have any bad songs.
My dad drove me up there, and went with me. He had a good time, 3rd time seeing the Used for him to. He loves just going to listen to the music...we didn't get home till 1:30am...we drove to and back from Phoenix. But it was so worth it.
Of course who could go to a Used concert and not have a cool story to tell. So yeah, Bert was going on about how they've been to Arizona a lot, and how great of a crowd we are. Then he started thanking the fans, well while he was doing that some chick flashed him...he's all "hello" and then he said" you aren't even legal yet. Don't be flashing 16 year old titties..put them back until your legal." I was laughing so hard. Then he's all, "as I was saying before I was so rudely interuppted by 16 yr old titties"....hahaha..I just thought that was hysterical.
Anywho..I rocked out, got a shirt, and had a great time! Wish everyone was there with me.

Tonight is the Used concert. I hope that I can go. I think my dad's gonna go with me. He's been to see them with me twice already, and he does like them...so we'll see.
I'll let you guys know!
