just a short one...

okay, I don't have much to write today...honestly, I think I'm out of thoughts...again. Okay, so the thing is, my friend thinks that I'm gonna be a scientist someday. Let's just say that chances are, I'm not. Okay, okay, so when we had to take a career testy thingy at school, my top three were Paleontologist, Marine Biologist, and Microbiologist. They are all some sort of scientist. Later down the list I had Doctor, Zoologist, and Mathematician. Um, yeah...I have got to be the ONLY teenage girl on the planet who scored "Mathematician" But so for forever, my friends have been thinking that I'm gonna be a scientist....this MIGHT be because I love all things parasites, all things animals, and all things, well, science. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT I WANT TO BE A SCIENTIST! Okay, mini-rant yeah, that all i've got today....

Top 10 Reasons Why I Can't Wait For School To Start

Okay, I'm bored out of my mind so I give you this!
Top 10 Reasons Why I Can't Wait Til School Starts
10) I hear that my English teacher is really nice.
8) Jazz Band.
7) Junior Vocal Group
6) Musical
5) Math homework
4) English homework
3) I like school!
2) I get the good choir teacher this year.
1) HOMEWORK!!!! :)
Okay, you likely think I'm insane because I want to do homework, but I really really really really miss homework. I have no life, so I live for homework and school. I mean, what ELSE am I gonna do? Also, I have a nice busy life during the school year, and I HATE IT during the summer because I have NOTHING to do...this leads me to color code 10 copies of my schedule which I don't really need...and then go on the color code my brother's schedules for him. SEE WHAT SUMMER VACATION IS DOING TO ME???? It is causing me extreme bordom that can ONLY be caused by having to go multiple days without homework...

Fireworks/of the day junk/weird dreams/other

Okay, so yesterday I got to watch this fireworks display because it was going on at the soccer field near my house. It was amazing, and not just because they actually got good fireworks this year. It was amazing because it just always is amazing to go to an abandoned playground at 10:00 at night. It just is. Ya know why? Because it's COLD out! And I LOVE the cold. Plus it was an abandoned playground so while I waited for the fireworks to start, I could sing as loud as I was weird, I added this part to a song that I'm writing and then it just CHANGED KEYS! It was really cool! Okay, so I see I have to put up today's "of the day" stuff:
Quote of the Day: "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"-Wayne Gretzky
Bible Verse of the Day: "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."-Romans 12:2
Word of the day: Camera (just say it!!! it's FUN to say!)
Question of the Day: If pigs really could fly, then what kind of expression would people say?Book of the Day: "The Mind & the Brain" by Jefferey M. Schwartz, M.D. and Sharon Begley.
Number of the Day: 1096....just because.

Okay, that was the "of the day" stuff. Now I'm gonna babble on about the quote of the day. Okay, so the quote was "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take" WHY do we have that quote in the band room? Because I honestly don't get that. I mean, it would suit in the GYM but the BAND ROOM? Maybe I'm over thinking this but in music sometimes you don't play notes because YOU AREN'T SUPPOSED TO! Okay, I'm just gonna stop right there and not get into the whole said "whole"...that makes me think of "whole rests"....which makes me think "upside down hat"....which makes me think about the super cool hat I saw online yesterday...SEE? I can't be trusted to babble because then I start sounding really rediculous! Whatever....while we are on the topic of band (we got there from...sports? gosh, I'm obsessed) I have to tell you about the FUNNIES DREAM EVER that I had last night! I had a dream that this one guy in my class who hates band was gonna be in band this year playing OBOE! And the dream was really funny because his oboe was WHITE WITH PINK POCADOTS! YAY!!! So I had a good night's sleep dreaming about pink spotted oboes. And then I had a dream about an alto sax player at my school switching to oboe...but in my dream she forgot her oboe so she had to play PRECUSSION!!! Okay, so now I'm DREAMING about band? Gosh, this is not when I was obsessed with Harry Potter I had Harry Potter related dreams EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA! By this point I am likely scaring you, so I figure I should just shut up now....

More On Today's Quote

You know what's really weird? I'm just sitting here, feeling perfectly happy. And I don't even know WHY I feel so happy. The funny thing is, that's okay. I don't know why I'm blogging right now. I don't particularily care either. Hmmm...I never really got into today's "quote of the day"...I guess I could do that now. Again, here is today's quote of the day: "If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is." ~John Louis von Neumann. Okay, so I only heard this one today, when I googled "math quotes"...yes, I actually went LOOKING for a math quote. I guess what it's saying is that earthly things that are unnessary really are easy compared to life. People often say that a certain aspect of life is tricky, but imagine all those tricky things smushed together to create our lives...THAT is called complecated. is complecated. More than complecated, it's hard. Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes life really sucks. But that just makes the good parts seem even better. Some people think that they can sum up life in a sentance. Some people think that they can sum up life in a paragraph. But you know what? I'll try to sum up life in a word: Completastic. Okay, so it isn't a "real" word, but I needed a new one. Okay, so you may have noticed that I combined "complecated" with "fantastic"...because those are the two words that describe life. Complecated but fantastic. Some people hate life. Some people love life. Some people say that the world is their playground. Some people say that the world is their science lab. I say that life is completastic and that the world is a TV show. I watch the people around me, but I kinda feel like I'm just watching. Maybe that's why I don't care about what other people think, because I don't always feel real. But you know what? That's okay. Right now, I don't care what people think. But I do feel real. Very real. The thing is, I don't live in reality.


Okay, so this one time during band class the teacher was talking about how some people relate certain colors with certain I give you the list of how I color-coded my schedule!
Social Studies-Blue
Speech-blueish green
Bible-Dark green
Choir-Dark blue
Chapel-Dark purple

Okay, so that is my color coded school I'll give you the colors that I relate to the months of the year!
January-Dark bluey purple
May-sky blue
June-Watermellon pink
August-cat barf (yeah........I don't like August much)
November-REALLY light blue

Okay...since I'm really bored, I'm gonna tell you something kinda weird...In math class when I see numbers, I always hear in they aren't numbers, they are notes in a B-flat major scale...which is kinda weird of me. And whenever I do the alarm code or whatever for my house, I always sing it....the numbers as they would be in a B-flat major scale...Which I guess is kinda weird...and then in band class, I hear notes as's weird.....but does this happen to anyone else?

oh no...

None of my friends are in my french class. I'm gonna fail french. Not even kidding. I mean, last year I only got 87% in french overall, but that's with my friends doing all the group assignments with me...and my friends are REALLY good at french...without their help on the groupwork my grade would have been 73%. Which is REALLY bad for me. Okay, so of the day stuff:
Book of the Day: The Dictionary....
Quote of the Day: "If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is." ~John Louis von Neumann
Bible Verse of the Day: "For with God nothing shall be impossible"-Luke 1:37
Number of the Day: 4. Because a) they are cute b)they are fun to draw and c) I have french four times a 6-day-cycle.
Word of the Day: "Arithmatic"....sorry, I'm just in a math mood today....

Okay, so that's all for the "of the day" junk....I think I'm out of junk to talk about...

Friday, August 22, 2008

Sorry, I'm just REALLY bored...

Okay, I lost count. Is this the third or fourth post today? Yeah, I have no life. So I'm just gonna write some poetry:
There once was a man with a dream,
To invent a new kind of ice cream.
He started with chocolate,
To put in his pocket
Then his pocket was no longer clean.

So off he went to the store,
For there they have pockets galore!
He bought just a few,
But in them was poo,
So he ended up being quite poor.

He decided to use the phone,
To talk to his friend, Lome,
They argued a bit
There was lot's of wit!
Still, he ended up getting a loan.

So then he got back to work
After waiting for his coffee to perk
He used some cat pee
To make some new tea
And that was the end of his work.

Yeah...i am THAT bored...I just wrote that now, and it's not supposed to make a whole lot of sense so don't expect to understand the deeper meaning because there is none. Anyways, I have the MOST ANNOYING LITTLE BROTHER EVER.....He was playing my oboe without my permission!!!! And it's MY oboe. That I payed for with MY OWN MONEY. My oboe costed 200 dollars!!!! PLUS I had to pay for oboe reeds! Which are so expensive! Okay, so by now you are likely not gonna read EVERYTHING that I've been babbling about today....which makes sense, I've been doing TONS of babbling today. But you know what? I'm not done with my babbling. Because I have something to say. You know how I had deleted "this" blog about a month ago? Well, I was kinda almost looking for a freash start...Is that any different from going to a new school? Because all I want right now is another chance at a first impression...Because believe it or not, EVERYONE at school thinks I'm weird...and they say that like it's a BAD thing...There is just one thing that I've never understood. Why do people say "weird" like it's BAD??? It's GOOD! It's weirdtastical!!! If anyone can answer that question, I will be amazed. Because people think that different is wrong and I don't get why that is. I mean, usually when someone calls me "weird" I say "thanks!!!"...and that irritates them SO MUCH!!! It's SO FUNNY! Because they just don't get it. They don't see how people who are weird have SO MUCH MORE FUN! But somehow, I don't want everyone to be weird...because then weird gets a normal and we're back where we started. It's not worth the effort. People are idiots and life sometimes sucks. You know what? I think that right here, right now, I'm gonna say what I think life is. Life is JUST LIKE an oboe reed. Sorry, but it's true. Because oboe reeds don't work perfectly at first, just like how it takes time for life to get going to something worth living. It takes practice to get sound to come out and even longer to get people to listen. Which is just like in life how when we are teenagers, people don't listen to us because we "aren't old enough"..I mean, I wouldn't use a fairly new reed that I'm breaking in at a concert! But eventually I DO need to use that reed. I don't know for sure, but I think that life is just like an oboe reed.

Of The Day Junk

Okay, so I'm gonna do some "of the day" stuff...Okay? So, as everyone SHOULD know (as this is my third post before lunch)
the quote of the day is: "Oboes have the right of A"
bible verse(s) of the day is: Psalm 1:1 "Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. 2 But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. 3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. 4 But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind. 5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly. 6 For the Lord watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction."
Usually I would start ranting about the deeper meaning of that, but I'd say it's fairly self-explanitory.
Song of the Day: "Where Is The Love"-by the Black-eyed Peas
Book of the Day: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.
Instrument of the Day: OBOE!!! Because it totally has the right of A!!!

Okay, that's all of the "of the day" junk that I can think of right now...It will kinda rotate from day to there will be different "of the day" stuff every day...otherwise I might run out of things to say!

Something Other Than Band

Okay, after my last post you have ever right to call me a band nerd (please, band GEEK is so marching band and band NERD is so much more concert band)....Yeah, I'm still in band-mode. So now I need to say something worth saying because I'm sure that EVERYONE knows that OBOES HAVE THE RIGHT OF A!!!....At least you should if you read my post from an hour ago. So I'm gonna make a list of why I'm weird and proud of it!

-I will randomly start screaming the number "169" into the phone...don't worry, people are actually on the phone...I don't yell into dead phones...

-I practice oboe/clarinet more than most people think possible

-I go through obsessions like crazy...Harry Potter, Band, Pickles, Sims2, Neopets, Westerblog....let's see....I think I'm finally done obsessing over things.

-I have actually yelled "THE METAPHORICAL LIME SHOES ARE GOING TO ATTACK METAPHORICAL GREENLAND AS SOON AS IT MELTS!!!" My band teacher heard and now thinks that I'm insane...but he thought that anyways...

-I own shoes with clay on them....guess who put the clay on them? Yeps, that would be me.

-I think about things that most people don't think about...(quotation marks come to mind here)

-I over-think a LOT of things...(again...quotation marks anyone?)

-I randomly know that the square root of 97969 is 313...don't ask how I know that, I just DO!

-I LOVE math...always have always will! Which explains why I spent a good few hours trying to see how far into Pi I could memorize....

-The whole thing with table legs...ask away, it's an interesting story!

-I emailed someone the word "oboe" so many times that it took 10 minutes to scroll down the page....this was a while ago....

-Mudbowl...(emily-wa, you should remember THAT email)

-I randomly rode my bike in the rain in the middle of the night for no reason in particulare.

-My obsession with shoelaces...I actually collect them...

-After reading "So Yesterday" by Scott Westerfeld, I will randomly go up to people and ask if I can take a picture of their shoe...but that isn't the weird part...I've actually asked someone that and they WEREN'T EVEN WEARING SHOES!!! Fun times, fun times...

-I read my text-books for school and randomly do math problems from the math one...

-Paint + shoes = fun!

Okay, so that's just the tip of the Q-tip, but whatever...I'll get around to writing more weird things I do later...

I'm Smiling (and ranting)

This morning I woke up and the first thing I thought was "I've got my old blog back, life is good" question is HOW did I get my old blog back. The thing is, when you typed it in before it said that you couldn't make a blog with this name. Yet, somehow I have my old blog back. Yesterday evening I decided I wanted to make another blog. Usually I would have gone onto my new account, but I had a feeling that I should make use of my old one. And then, just joking around to see the computer's reaction, I typed in somecoolthoughts711 to see if it would let someone make a blog called that. And it did. Even thought it wasn't supposed to. So I am so happy right now. Life is perfect. 20/20. Because lately it's been a bit more like 1/20....not even kidding, I've been keeping track. So I'm perfectly happy...I'm not sure if I've ever been this happy before. So now I need a quote for today (by the way, I'm still kinda in band camp mode so don't hold something this corny against me) so the quote is "Oboes have the right of A"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of my favorite quotes BECAUSE IT'S TRUE! But did the conductor GIVE us oboes the right of A??? NO! She gave the CLARINETS the right of B-FLAT!!!! And everyone knows that OBOES are supposed to tune the band to A! Well, the woodwinds anyways...And it didn't matter than THE ENTIRE OBOE SECTION wrote "Oboes have the right of A" on our stand-tages...SHE JUST IGNORED US! Maybe that's because 2/3 of the oboists were new (in other words we weren't even supposed to BE at the camp...I haven't been playing of the required year) and the other girl hadn't practiced all summer...So the oboe section kinda sucked, but STILL! IT'S TRADITIONAL for OBOES to tune the WOODWINDS! DUH! And the clarinetist played the LOWER octave B-flat...and EVERYONE knows that you're supposed to use the UPPER octave! DUH! I mean, when I played clarinet (there was no oboe in the band) I ALWAYS tuned the band (okay only the woodwinds) and I KNOW that you're supposed to play A not B-FLAT (b-flat is used to tune the brass) and either way it HAS TO BE THE UPPER OCTAVE!!! Okay....I'm gonna stop ranting now...And I'll calm down and go out of band camp mode...But you know what else rocks? I got THREE new reeds yesterday and they ALL work PERFECTLY!!! And in case you don't know, oboe reeds are really expensive (10 dollars per reed) but they are really picky...And one teeny tiny glitch could cause them not to work. And so having THREE that work is AMAZING. So I'm pretty happy. In fact, I think I'm so happy that I might clean my room today! I'm serious! But I'm perfectly happy just blogging here for the rest of my life. What else is there to rant about? OH! I have another quote from band camp! "If your weekly shower is on Saturday, could you do it tonight?"...that's what our MATHTASTICAL conductor said on thuresday, the night before the concert. Then the camp coordinator said "Sure mrs. Lee, I'll take my shower tonight"....even thought she was totally talking to the students! He was joking (I think) and it was SO FUNNY...and then there was the whole "oboe stick of death" thing that I'm not even gonna get into...Let's just say that there was a lot of talk of ninjas and samurais...not even kidding...if you can guess WHY that would be, I want to hear your theories. Because they are likely wrong. No one could POSSIBLY guess why the conductor told us to be a samarai...this lead to the oboe section giggling about oboe sticks of death...and cowboys...I would try to explain that, but I don't get that one either. Okay so now I should try to get some thoughts going...even thought I just woke up half an hour ago. Rain. It's raining outside...I'm getting magical shivers right now....the kind you get from music...Because "the rain dribbles a musical song...a whole orchestra of music. The thunder applauds it, the lightening takes its picture. Some people love the summers rays, but I perfer a rainy day..." That's part of my poem that I wrote forever ago...but I can remember that. I can't remember the other verses, except this one "The winds thrashes the trees, showing their freedom. Sometimes freedom can kill things, but if life doesn't end it will always be old and never be new. Some people love the summer's rays but I prefer a rainy day"..........why do I remember these two verses in particulare? Probably because I agree with them the most. Maybe someday I'll find that poem again. Because poetry is meant to be found, not hidden. Wow....that was amazing. Okay, I've got to end this post here, but try to remember something. That life sucks sometimes and sometimes you feel kinda dead. But really, I think that sometimes us acorns have to be replanted into another pot so that we can continue growing. And so maybe that can be a little destructive, but it creates new life in us and new opportunities. On that note (I'd say it was more like a 1, 4, 5, 8, in concert B-flat, but that's just me) I'll go and eat breakfast...maybe...actually I want to clean my room...

Just Me Again

You might be surprised to find this blog here...the truth is, I missed it like hell. I hope everyone sees this. I have a quote for today..."Freedom has a way of destroying things"-Specials by Scott Westerfeld...yeah, I've used it before, but now let's think this through. Does freedom have a way of destroying things? In a way I think "yeah...I would know"...mostly because I am such an expert at ruining my own life. But is it REALLY our freedom that destroys things? Are we really, truly free? The thing is, there is a lot of sin in the world. And sin is a chain. So as long as we are living in a sinful world, are we free? I would say that the answer is no. Simply because we aren't free til we die and go to heaven. We are trapped inside our earthly bodies and inside our own sin. We aren't free. We are surrounded by people...none of us are free. Maybe the greatest freedom in life is the one freedom that we so often deny ourselves...the freedom to be ourselves. When we are ourselves, do we destroy things? Yes. But the truth is, I've destroyed a whole lot more as someone else than as myself. And you know what? I made a list about what I learned today, so here it is:
1) I can be stubborn...really stubborn
2) The phrase "I don't know" is just a stupid person's way of avoiding the truth
3) Oboe reeds only cost 10 dollars...not 15.
4) I can wear skinny jeans and look good in them!
5) Protesting books made into movies is a REALLY stupid idea.
6) That not having thoughts in my head is VERY unsettling.
7) How to spell "mathematicain".
8) 2 more ways to use a nail-board thingy
9) That my better judgment is kind of non-exsistent.
10) That I've said some mean things that I now find are insulting ME.
11) That depressing music actually puts me in a good mood (but i kinda already knew that)
12) That the number 12 isn't really stalking me...I've been stalking it.
13) That I have GOT TO read my Bible more...if you find a verse on being yourself, let me know...
14) Sometimes people change and it's scary. Very scary.
15) Social Studies class sucks...not even kidding.
16) That most stores at the mall actually have really good music.
17) Math is stupid.
18) School Schedules really aren't that exciting.
19) When you don't follow your heart, it might deside to pull you along anyways.
20) That I've always been a robot to society at heart...always will be.

I don't agree with all the things I learned and you know what? I don't have to. I don't agree that I'm a robot to society at heart...definetly on the surface, but not at heart. At heart, I am most definetly a.....well, I don't know what I am at heart. All I know is that I love God no matter what. It doesn't matter what the world says to me, I'll just suck it up and go in whatever direction I feel like going. And you know what? I feel so happy right now...I feel at home. Because I used to have a blog just like this, but I deleted it. And I regret that decision. So I'm trying to fix it. From this moment on, I'm gonna not screw up my life more than neccessary. Here me, when I say that for now on I'm just gonna be myself!!! That for now on, the world has no hold on me...that I'm FREE! And guess what? This freedom is not gonna destroy things. This freedom is from God, and so all it's gonna destroy is evil! Right now, I'm so happy that I could fly! So live life, have fun, but at the same time, constantly search for something more...because you know what? You just might find it.
