Last weekend was incredibly busy and exhausting and I'm so relieved it's over. Let me tell you about it. Well Friday morning at 9am I had to go to sophomore orientation. I really should have gone later that day because when me and my friends got there, the place was brimming with phonies and people who I dislike. Our whole school district is being renovated so we had to have it at the middle school, which sucks because I really wanted to find where my classes and locker is. Doesn't matter that this is my second year at the high school, the place is huge and most of my classes last year were on the other side of the building. So I feel really bad for the Freshmen who don't even get to see where their classes are.

After that, I had to go to the high school at 4:30pm because our varsity football team had their first game that day. We - the marching band (and the very best part of the game ;D) - performed our show (which was relatively short) and it was great. The best part, actually, was that WE ACTUALLY WON. 27 - 0. Which everyone was siked over because in actuality, our football team SUUUUUUCKS. Like, last year we didn't win a single game. So of course it's great that we won the first game of the season! We have a tradition where if we win, then the marching band gets to wear our hats on backwards. I just know it's going to be a great season now. And after that, we went home and some of us went to a bonfire at a fellow bandmate's house. I wish more people came - most probably went home and slept after all that exhaustion - but those who did go were super cool (we have some great Freshmen this year) - and it was a lot of fun.

Yesterday, I went to a carwash to raise money for my band student account (we're going to Disneyworld this year for our band trip). It was really fun. We made $720 total that day.

So yes, it was a very exhausting weekend. 

This weekend will be a little bit better but it will still be busy. September 1st the band leadership has to play something for the staff meeting, then I have to help at the U of M concessions. 
Then the week after that, school starts. 

Marching band just brings a whole lot of craziness and busyness to your life. It's a wonder how I survive with me being as lazy as I am.

Oh oh oh! I also forgot to tell you guys something! I got a job! Just a babysitting job, but still... it's fort the whole school year and I'll be able to make around $200 per month. alsdjaflsdfd I'm so excited! Maybe I'll be able to buy myself a new iPod before my birthday. Brb making a list of things I want to buy when I start earning money. xD Mostly band merch and books and camera stuff.

So yeah, that's it for now.

Angst, angst, angst!


School starts in less than two weeks and I have mixed feelings about it. Though I'm not too excited about all the work and having to see all the typical high schoolers that I would rather not see, I guess I kind of want school to start just so I can take my mind off things. Just so I can do my homework and go on robot-girl mode and just not have to think about anything. 

I don't know. This summer holiday went by so quickly I don't even remember anything, although looking back, I wish I'd done more than just loiter around the house on tumblr, etc. That's why I want to go back to school. Just so I feel like I'm doing something productive. This summer has been... rather angsty for me. It has been a summer of a lot of ups and downs and mood swings and I have no idea why. My parents have been pissing me off more than usual this summer. It's really odd. There are some moments where I feel like I could cry forever if I could, but I haven't had a good cry in ages. I feel like that is what I need. A good cry, and then I wouldn't feel like shit all the time. And nothing even happened. I can't tell if I'm just going through a rebelling, angsty teenage phase or if I'm actually depressed.

I also need to be a better daughter and help out around the house a lot more often.

Anyway, I'm sorry for blabbing but I just had to vent. Me and my first world problems. There are kids starving around the world and here I am whining and such. I'm such a horrible person.

Tomorrow is going to be busy day. From 9:00am-11:30 I have to go to sophomore orientation and then I have to be at the school at 4:30pm for band rehearsal and then to prepare for the football game, which will most likely end at 10pm.

And alas! Marching season begins.

What happened at band camp.


Today I went to the waterpark with my mom and Sophia. It was actually a lot of fun. It's the first time that I went swimming or anything of the sorts all summer. Now I'm thinking maybe I should have gone with them each time they went to the waterpark or went swimming. It's already starting to get cooler now.

I came home from band camp last Friday. WAH. So much work. Even more work than last year. I swear, if anyone tries to tell me that band couldn't be considered a sport, I'd have to fight back the urges to punch them. We have to learn some newer drills that we didn't learn last year, but aside from all the hard work, it was a lot of fun. I met some pretty cool freshmen. It's going to be a cool show, and a great marching season. We're going to be playing the songs Dynamite, Forget You, Respect, Life Is a Highway, and Jump In the Line (Shake Senora). I don't like the songs much, but I don't like most mainstream songs that play on the radio.  Even so, we'll make it cool because I have great faith in our band. These people are like family. Here are some pictures for ya!
