No, folks, I'm not talking about PotC3, I haven't even seen the second one yet.

I'm talking about Pan's Labyrinth.

I just finished watching that movie and I think it is the BEST EVER!!!!!!

The detail, the graphics, the gore, the plot, it was great! I loved the ending, though it was very...saddish. Given the time period, I'm not surprised.

Kind have come up with a list of warnings though:

--squeamish people STAY AWAY
--Do NOT eat while watching this movie (learned that the hard way)
--If you are a sentimental person or a pacifist, this probably isn't the movie for you. The setting is Spain, 1944. WWII ended in '45, didn't it?
--If you are annoyed by having to read subtitles and can't speak Spanish (or French?), you might be a little annoyed at the fact that this movie is not in English (or whatever language you speak).
--If you must eat or drink while watching this movie, make sure it isn't rare steak or red wine.

As for me, I loved this movie. The white creature creeped me out, but it was great. I'm speechless at it... Srsly...

Recap for Friday...

Yesterday was a happy, yet kind of sad day.

I literally finished a class really early, so I get an automatic pass. I still have to do work on something else in the computer tech class, but I don't have to worry about passing any more exams.

I got a 94 on the hardest Chemistry exam that I'll ever take in that class, save the final. Seriously, people would be lucky to get over a 90 on that test. I luckly passed the atomic theory portion 100%, which was what I was most worried about.

I also got to see Bye Bye Birdie last night! The high school Musical Theater was putting it on, and I must say, it was casted PERFECTLY. I know a lot of the kids in there. It was great. Hannah's excited about being in it next year, while I'm stuck in Drama 1. (Excuse me for wanting to get my sciences done with first)

Meanwhile, I'm still confused on the Jordan front. Someone managed to figure it out and confronted me about it. He was the same person who figured it out last year, and still confronted me about it... Gee, deja vu, much?

But enough of that. What made me so mad is this. The parade that the band is supposed to be performing at is next Saturday. We haven't marched, or even picked our songs yet. While I'm assuming that they will be the same songs we did for Loyalty Days, I bet you people are going to want a different change...

I'm in the finals for house_las!! Congrats to iluvroadrunner6, who took third place, and good luck to keeper_of_stars for the final round. May the best man woman win.

I must go do relaxing stuffs. Farewell...


Fic: Significance

Title: Significance
Rating: PG
Pairing: Chase/Cameron
Summary: With Cameron coming into the ICU with a head injury, waking up with amneisa, and not knowing who Chase is at all, Chase finds potential for a new beginning.
Notes: Written for house_las, the prompt was remember: the crappiest prompt on the face of the earth IMO. Also, this is my first Chase-centered story.

SignificanceCollapse )


Let's start, or rather, end this day with a nice, civilized shoutout. ETHAN ROCKS!!!!!

Lost? Okay, let me explain. Ethan is the lead drummer in the band. Today was the Fine Arts assembly that we got kept in about two minutes after school was out for. The choir sang, the band played, the guitars composed, the Drama Production teased, and the drumline did a percussion thing.

Well, they started out with the cadence, went into another cadence, and the quad toms did their small solo. Ethan went out and did his EXCELLENT solo ON TWO SNARES!!!!!!!

Now I see exactly why he placed third in state.

Now, because others asked for this kind of thing, I have it for them too...

eryslash rocks!!!! Her drawings are EXCELLENT, she's very nice, and just so amazingly cool! (You owe me, by the way...) :)

keeper_of_stars! My greatest competition! Her writing is so great, very discriptive, and evokes wonderful images in the mind. She's really nice, sweet, and so cool I can't think of anything else!

Now, not much else to say. My Jordan sphiel will wait until it's not so hot in this idiot house and I can stand to sit in front of my computer. Farewell...


Well, the voting polls for house_las are up. At this point, I'm just happy that I got this far. I'll be happy if I get into the finals, but if I don't, it really doesn't matter at this point. The prompt--remember--was a crappy excuse for one, and in my effort to not write something cliche, I left my comfort zone.

Not to mention, this is coming up on the end of the year. I've got Finals, term papers, and overall, I have to do some serious talking up in order to get what I need for next year. I can't afford to spend so much time on this kind of deadline competition writing at a crucial time like this.

My register time for classes next year is the 30th. I'm planning on taking French and English to begin with, and go into my sciences Winter Quarter. Hopefully, I can get my transportation issues in order by the time classes start. I hate not being able to drive...

I owe, someone... God, I'm so behind, I can't remember anymore... babykid528? A letter meme, she gave me O. Kind of a hard letter, since I really can only think of a few things that start with O that I like... I'll get on that eventually.

And since eryslash made such a super cool post telling everyone how cool I am, I have to do the same.

1. Reply to this post if you want me to tell you how cool you are (or, if you swing the other way, I can tell you how crap you are if you prefer that kind of thing)
2. Watch my journal over the next few days for a post about you/a post that includes you in it and why you rock my socks
3. Post these instructions in your journal and give your friends a much needed dose of love and adoration.

Well, I have to go and do something for now. Homework for Chemistry or something... Farewell...



I owe eternal thanks and probably my first-born to deelaundry for emergency beta-ing my LAS piece...

Hannah finally came back...about half hour ago.

She kind of forgot to tell me about the Armed Forces Parade that was happening today. The parade that her brother was marching in. SO as soon as she came back I pretty much killed her, and then resurrected her, and then she looked over my fic for a final combing.

I just sent in my fic to house_las. I'm guaranteed third place this round, but I am really trying to go up as far as possible. Luck to everyone.




I have 4 hours.

Four frakking hours to finish my LAS entry and edit it.

Neither of my editors are able to be contacted by me at the moment.


I might need to pull the emergency beta card, as passes are out now.

Details to come.



My Provider

Title: My Provider
Summary: In the midst of looking for House, Wilson happens to find something that he wasn't supposed to see...
Ship: House/Wilson
Rating: G
Warning: Extremely sappy. "Cute," in the words of my editor.
Author's Note: Could not find my beta at all on this. I am not kidding. Originally written for candycanedreams, my quote was "I always told them." --Wilson. Here is the obscenely sappy result of that... Enjoy!

I didn't know you wrote poetry.Collapse )


Wow... Just...wow...

Okay, I need to ask this. Who has been to the Pit of Voles lately? A few of you? Okay...

Any of you check out the DBZ fandom lately?

No? You're not into anime, okay. Well, you might just want to check this out for a pretty big laugh. This dude has some serious issues...

For those of you who don't feel like taking the trip into fanfiction.net at the moment, let me give a narrative.

There's this idiot in the DBZ fandom who has been posting all this crap about how he hates this person called Flame Rising or something like that. It's utterly rediculous. Geez, he's posting them too fast for them all to be deleted, and he is probably the epitome of a "troll".

Geez... I have to laugh at this. Farewell for now...



English paper due tomorrow... Haven't even started on it. Frick... I'll go do that now...

As a sort of happy front though, I did get my candycanedreams fic done. Very short, quite sweet, even though I think it is WAY too sappy at the end. Eh, I'll let my beta say for herself...if she'll EVER GET ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't heard from her since beginning of last week. Kind of worried, since house_las starts up tomorrow... If I were any good with graphics, I'd make up banners for third, second, and first place winners, but I suck with graphics... All three people remaining in the competition are guaranteed at least third place, which I think is nice, because we at least placed.

I might be getting a job at, of all places, Starbucks. It is better than McDonalds, I'll admit, and actually, it is probably the best place to work around here in this middle-of-nowhere town.

Well, I have a paper to type, and my stalling tactics are likely to have me failing. Farewell, all...


A little trip dowm memory lane...

I just woke up. My "empty space" just grew to twice the size it was before. I can't go and do my "broomstick routine" because my fingers are shot from yesterday, when I did it for about five hours total. I feel reminiscent, so I wish to tell you all a tale; a past life, before LJ existed for me... Bah, it's just about a year or so ago...

Once upon a Freshman Year...Collapse )

Yeah, interesting trip down memory lane. I'm convinced to not have this blow over like last time. Convinced. As in, it won't happen.

Farewell folks, I'm off.

Crap Crap Crap... Recrap? No, recap...

I'm not on amphetamines, I'm on SPEEEEDD!!!!!! *spasm*

I have an empty space. My writer's block is back in full swing. It doesn't help that I have tons of stories that I need to get to writing. candycanedreams (that is now accepting all ships you're welcome keeper_of_stars) has their fics due on the 18th, and I haven't even started on it yet... GAH... I have an idea, but writing has just escaped me right now.

house_las starts up next week. I was enjoying the break that we got. It gave me the chance to get my school work situated and my college classes decided. If I get what I want, I'm taking Eng 101 comp. and French at the college next year, US history, drama, and a few other unimportant classes at the HS. I wonder twhat the LAS prompt is. I don't want to have to back out. I pride myself in having gotten this far. If possible, I want to make it all the way to the finals, which this may well be. Eh, third place is better than not placing at all, but still. I'm shooting for the top in this. I'm sure I can make it. I find it ironic that what I consider to be my biggest competition is one of my friends. (*coughkeepercough*)

At the moment I've been working on and off on my next original ficlet, A Measure of Trust, based on the Parade last Sunday. I needed something to write, and I guess this came into my head.

Let's see, I have the first draft of my Poe essay due on Monday, and English teach says I need to expand on my thesis. Wonderful... Gah, I have too much on my plate right now, and current events seriously aren't helping...

I aced my chemistry exam, 100% entirely. YAY!!!!! It was EASY...

Need I move on to the so-called "Empty Space" that has taken over my life? Need I give the hint that it has everything to do with the awkwardness of the parade in Long Beach? Need I mention the name? I don't really need to. The point is, because of the events of last weekend, which all blur into vision, I've started spiraling out of control again. Yes, again.

Okay, Monday through now has been kind of awkward for me. I guess it's my sentimental self that I've been trying to drown coming up for air, I don't know. The point is, I'm remembering the semi-huge crush I've had on this one guy since last year. Mostly because of the awkward proximity that happened during the dance. Overall, I'm confused, I guess. Now I feel kind of...empty...

Hahaha... What's ironic is the fact that I used to laugh at people who felt stuff like this. After all, who in this world could get so hung up over something as superficial as love, which wasn't really love at all, but only the illusion manifested by lust? It's HIGH SCHOOL for crying out loud. Nothing here is ever permanent. Friendships break up as people leave the city, or even the state for colleges around the world. I only know of a few relationships that have survived high school and managed to still remain as such five to ten years after the fact.

Emptiness is a good word to describe it, I guess. I'm confused, with no idea what to do, and what path to take. The awkwardness continues with his sister being the second hornist in the band, sitting right next to me every day. I want to tell him, but I have no idea how to predict the future, no idea how to gauge his reaction. I'm so freaking tired of having people speak for me though, all because of my modesty cowardice in such matters...

Eh, I have to go and figure out what I'm going to do... Think it over in the shower or something. I'm out, farewell...

PS It does NOT HELP with the songs I'm listening to right now... GAH

Loyalty Days...what is that again?

Okay, so I got to sleep about 1 AM Sunday morning. I had to wake up four hours later. Yeah, not really good.

I managed to do it though. I woke up, and we left home at about 6:30. I definitely brought a pillow along.

So I get on the bus and sit up front. No one I really like is sitting next to me, so I move to behind Aerie. In front of her were two flutists, and next to them was Jordan, trying to sleep. So I put in my ipod and follow suit.

Could not sleep. The bus was uncomfortable, I couldn't get my feet in the right spot, and everytime I started drifting off, I would get this strange dream where someone was trying to wake me up, so I woke up.

Aerie tried to wake me up when we got to Long Beach, and I nearly socked her. It's not my fault I have a sleeping reflex!

We were standing around for about three hours before we even started marching. After we started, it was about a half hour long, so I was really out of breath by the time it ended. You see, I can't play mellophone, so I was standing out there with my French horn on a saxophone neckstrap that my stepdad bought for me the week earlier. It was heavy...

Jordan was my right guide.

Man, this is starting to sound like last year with Aaron... Before you ask, it's a long story that I really don't feel like getting into, but I probably will eventually...

The front row kept on pissing me off, because the two trumpets would swerve instead of actually keeping in line and I had to keep in line with them. One of the trumpets kept messing up the freaking song, so I was mad. The trumpets also kept false starting us. Drum Major would move, and then they would move without the command.

Yeah, if it makes the trumpet players of the world feel any better, only two of them showed up, and those were the most annoying of the set. I'm not blaming them because they're trumpet players... The right guide trombone kept getting off step, so Jordan couldn't play for half the parade because he wasn't sure if he was in step or not...

Quad drum player put in his solos, as well as messed up the cadence a few times.

All in all, we STILL got first place in our division. Our division only consisted of three bands, but I don't care.

After the parade, we were let loose to do whatever we wanted, so Aerie; her uncle; Tom, the drum major; and I all went to Subway. After subway I found the arcade an managed to play a round of PIU, so I was happy...

Ride home.

Jordan, Tom, and the flutists I mentioned before were all playing a question game so I kind of joined in. We played that for the rest of the ride home.

And there's the parade. Today's aftermath recap to come later. I'm tired of typing now... Farewell...


Weekend Recap...of sorts...

Well, to those that are interested, I already went into my incoherent, half-asleep review of Prom, now I'll go in-depth about the details...

I started getting ready about 2 hours before I left, mostly because I had not much I really had to do. Make-up, hair, dress, and mom insisted that I wear perfume, but I opted for her violet lotion instead.

I do have pics... And this hardly looks like me... Behind cut for those of you who are not interested/have dial-up...

pics...Collapse )

Yeah, that was kind of strange for me. I felt like a barbie doll...

Anyway, Aerie picked me up at 7:30, we got to the place a little after 8-ish. And then I was bored.

I kind of felt really silly in my dress, as everyone else's was all fancy and had a train, and all that stuff, but I do also like my dress... I saw Veronica and Sarah, so I was happy.

It was stupid. The idiot DJs would NOT STOP playing hip hop... I hate that music. So I was an idiot and started dancing in my heeled boots the first song I was really able to. My feet still hurt.

I managed to get into a couple of poker games (the theme was Casino Royale, after all), but I have no idea how to play Texas Hold'em, so I was lost.

Found a few more friends, in the order: Angelina, who I haven't seen in AGES. She went to the college through Running start so she hasn't been at the school. Jordan, the guy I've had a small crush on since mid-last year, but haven't acted on. Virgil, the boy I hardly know from fourth period, but he seems nice enough. Sarah joined along so we all danced to rediculous songs.

When the next slow dance came along, I felt like asking someone, but I couldn't gain the guts to ask Jordan. I'd try, but then I would start hyperventilating and run away. Sarah caught this (she's had a small obsession with him for about 4 years) and told him that I was upset and maybe he should ask me. Luckly, she didn't say why I was upset. Slow dance was over by then... It was something fast, and as soon as I saw them coming toward me, I ran.

It was actually really cute. He walked by and said hi. I looked at him, kind of confused, and then he walked back. He said that he couldn't find his dancing partner, so he wanted to know if I wanted to go out there and dance with him... I look to Sarah, who winks. So I accept, and he leads me down to the dance floor. I had no idea what the hell I was doing so he positioned my arms and then we started doing this mix between a waltz and a jig...

The song ended ten seconds after we got out there. He bowed, I bowed (at least I think I did), and then I briskly walked out of there. I headed straight for the bathroom, where I nearly ran into Sarah. We were in there for a while, I was freaking out.

Veronica comes in and says it's the last dance so she should probably find her date. I follow her to the dance floor, and I'm looking on, because I feel like asking someone, but I have no idea who to ask. Then Virgil walks near me.

I think fast, and I go up to him. Swallow my embarrassment and ask him. He accepts so we start dancing... It was a slow song, and we were out there for a while.

The last song was Bohemian Rhapsody. I was happy. After that, Aerie and I left.

Okay, this is a little long, so I'm going to do Sunday's parade in a seperate post.



Recap? Prom will do...

Yes, I just got back from prom what must've been about an hour ago... Picspam of dress if you want, but otherwise, no.

Saw a bunch of friends there. I mostly hung out with two of my friends.

Danced with two guys...embarassed because my friend had to ask one of them for me. I was really nervous. The song ended about ten seconds after we got out there, so that really sucked. Eh, the worst part is that I get to see him all day tomorrow (he's my right guide in marching).

Second guy was someone who I hardly know, but he sits across from me in fourth period. This time I asked him, and he said yes, and it was a slow dance, and I was really kind of embarrassed because I'm really short and I didn't have my boots on, and he's really tall...

Last song was Bohemian Rhapsody. I was happy because I actually knew the words this time...

Tomorrow is parade in Long Beach. Three hour bus ride. My feet hurt. I have to wake up at five AM. It is 1 am right now. I'll give a more informative recap tomorrow probably after I get home(at 10:00). I have to deal with the guy I was too embarassed to ask directly being my right guide. He plays Alto sax... He's a senior...


Okay, I'm not hyperventilating anymore. Good night, before I go on the Three-AM-Rants that Hannah is prone to...



Fic: Cycles: Discovery (3/3)

Yes, it's true. No, you're not dreaming. I finally got off my lazy ass and finished this WIP. Enjoy.

Title: Cycles: Discovery
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: House/Wilson
Summary: Wilson's hiding something. House wants to find out, but is it really worth the risk? His actions are familiar, yet different, but it isn't until he sees the eyes that he knows that it's really Wilson.
Notes: Originally written for the long known we_take_five challenge, my prompt was karma, though this only loosely relates. It only fits that I posted it tonight, don't you agree? Final part of series.

You don't need your pitchforks anymore...

Yes, I finished Cycles part three at 12:30 this morning. Emergency beta (hopefully) will mean that this is up by Wednesday night for US peoples. That's kind of what I want, you know, because May 2nd is when this chapter takes place... It's only fitting.

I'm going to bed now, and hope that I don't fail my two quizzes tomorrow...

Prom is on Saturday. Should I go? I have a dress...but it's in the next town over...the dance, that is, not the dress...

I'm reciting the Highwayman tomorrow. Yay...

Night. I'm going to sleep.


Writer's Five...

I think I'll do this for Kara this time around...

Hope you enjoyed!


I can't get enough of the memes, can I?

Another interest/icon sphiel, this time from topaz_eyes


Threepeat. In case you haven't met yet, I introduce you to *fedora* icon. I love fedoras. They are cool. They make you look cool. And mysterious. And overall dark like. My mom got a fedora from whoknowswhere and I immediately went on a picspam with it. I liked this one best, so I doctored it a bit and used it as an icon.

This was more of a spur of the moment thing. Because of something Hannah said to me over IM, I needed a facepalm icon, and fast. I didn't have a fandom facepalm icon, so I put the digicam to use and made one of my own.

What are you wearing? I guess I'm way too OTP obsessed when I'm reading this and hoping this conversation would actually happen. He's talking to Wilson, by the way...

Interests time:

Archery: I love archery. Now if only I was talented enough at it to get my own bow and arrows. I'm okay, the Renassance Faire was enough to prove that, but my aim is off somewhat. Okay, this is another bit of proof that I cannot let go of traditional ways. I would much rather use a bow than a gun.

Claymore: OOOOHHHH!!! Claymore!!! Well, there are two ways to read this. One is the manga called "Claymore", the next is a type of sword that I find really cool. The claymore is a Scottish sword used in the medieval period, a two-handed sword with a nearly 4 foot long blade. The blade is narrow, and the sharp edge is on both sides, as it is with nearly all medieval blades. I have a somewhat replica of one carved out of wood. I usually use it for Halloween and fighting with my friend...

Ocarina: The ocarina is a type of egg-shaped pan flute that has a really cool sound. I heard one in a movie and I've wanted to play one ever since.

Fic: Gathering (Original)

Title: Gathering
Rating: PG-13

I hope you enjoyed. This bunny came to me this morning...
Okay, it's a huge news story in Western Washington. An innocent kiss between two girls gets caught by the school security cameras, gets WAY overplayed and causes the school to invade both girls' privacy and get their parents involved. The parents of one girl transfers her to another district.

Okay, homosexual or not, this was WAY overexaggerated and the school should not have even gotten into it. But instead, they take it the wrong way, bring RELIGION into it, and cause a huge mess. If this were a case of a boy-girl couple making out in the hall (like I see all the time), none of this would even have been CONSIDERED.

This is high school, by the way. Thought I should mention that.

Anyway, get this, the father of the girl that was forced to transfer goes on a RADIO SHOW the NEXT MORNING and talks about it! Saying yes there has been evidence of homosexual behavior for a while. My question:


Why, why, WHY is it that you just can't leave people alone?! I am so freaking infuriated, I have no idea what to think anymore. It's another reason why I so easily despise people.


more meme-time!

Yeah, I'm just going around and telling people to find interests of mine they find interesting... karaokegal this time...

Icons first:

My only repeat, I'm surprised. Okay, I already explained this, but who cares? I love fedoras. I wanted to freak out my dad by making him think I cut my hair off, and I liked the expression in this one, so I went to paint with it and doctored it a bit (you lucky iconmakers with PS) and thus, it became an icon...

Oh, the Drunk!Wilson... Oh, made by the great eryslash, this is a really nice picture of...Wilson drunk! I believe the episode is "Kids" or something to that extent, it's the episode where Vogler leaves, and House puts on a huge celebration. And come on! Isn't Wilson cute here?

The only question left to ask: What are you wearing? Um...yeah...pretty much... OH COME ON!!! In the original scene, he's talking to Wilson. You can't help the implications behind that. Nice to think that's really what they're discussing... :D

Interests now:

Football: This is the American version, mind you. I would have spelt it correctly had I meant European style. Okay, Seahawks fan, here. Well...I'm a fan for a lot of teams, just not Chicago... I dunno. For the longest time I really didn't know what to think of football since I didn't know the rules, but when you live in a household of die hard fans as well as play music at high school games, you tend to learn to like it. It's the only televised sport I'll actually watch, besides gymnastics and ice skating...

Swords: At any one time in my room, I am within reach of at least one bladed object. Now that'll tell you one of two things, depending on how you know me. You can say that I'm either WAY too paranoid for my own good, or that I just love swords. I'll take both answers, but 99.99999% of the time, it's the latter. Swords fascinate me. I don't know, I just can't get out of the past, I guess. Times of fantastical knights, samurai, and whathaveyou. Swords are cool. Guns are not, in my opinion...but that will just get me into an off topic discussion that I don't need to get into...

Kimonos: Another bit of proof that I cannot leave the past. I own two kimonos. My most often worn one is purple. The other one is more of a yukata. Anyway, I don't know. I just it's the traditional/formal person in me. Not to mention that a lot of the designs are really cool. I like kimonos for the same reason I like Chinese-style dresses. They look really cool. :D


Meme again...

For deelaundry, comment and I'll pick three icons and three interests for you to elaborate on...

On the icon portion:

Simple. Me wearing a fedora.... I love fedoras, they're cool. Mom ended up getting one from somewhere or other and I immediately did pictures that were originally supposed to scare the crap out of my dad with him thinking that I cut my hair. I liked the expression in this one, so I used it as an icon...

Default icon... Uh, I'm a writer. I saw this icon, and I fell in love with it immediately. Usually I can't stand it when people bother me as I write, so this seemed appropriate. Not to mention, wouldn't it be nice if House wrote fanfiction about himself? (and Wilson)

All In. You have to love Wilson in this episode, and he's wearing a suit! Aww! No, but Wilson + tuxedo + poker = I <3 U!!!!! Enough said.

On the interests side of it:

Oriental-style clothing: Okay, you know those Chinese-style dresses that have the tight-hipped skirts, beautiful designs and color pallets, and usually the slit up one side? For an example, look behind cut...

How could you NOT like that? I have a purple kimono, I want one of those too. I just think they look really cool...

Companions of the Night: It's a really good book by Vivian Vande Velde. It may be a bit on the short side, but it's a great YA vampire novel and I could read it over and over. Reccommended if you're looking for a vampire novel that's high on suspense, but low on gruesome action...

DNAngel: Oh, no. You've got me started on anime. Wonderful... Okay, excellent anime/manga series created by Yukiru Sugisaki about a 14-year-old kid who is in the middle of a potentially dangerous love triangle. Because he has a crush on one girl at school, and because he carries the curse genes, he turns into the legendary Phantom Thief Dark every time he thinks about her. Not to mention, if you're watching the dubbed anime, you have Vic Mignogna voicing Dark. Can you get much better than that?

Okay, back into seclusion and trying to finish this cursed outline. Happy House-watching East Coasters....Farewell...

God Dammit

Yeah, I have a 5 page essay that I'm skipping out on at 11:30 at night so I can recap my weekend for you...aren't I nice?

Okay, Saturday was the Concert/Sightreading competition in Port Orchard. Overall, I think it went pretty well. There were some songs played that I particularly enjoyed, listed behind the cut, because not everyone is as much a band geek as I.

The last three bands (besides us) I didn't get to hear because we were warming up and doing the sightreading portion. Bainbridge (Braindead) Island performed one of the songs we were also performing and I think we out played them by a longshot.

Overall, our grade was a III which is good. I thought we would get a IV, but I guess we were better this time around...

Our sightreading piece, Three Celtic Miniatures (I don't remember the composer), was a pretty tough piece. The beginning was a low, complex rhythim that I would have enough trouble with without the added idea of going from an Eb to a low G... I played first horn for this, and I'm happy with the playthrough. Our grade was a III-, but I'll live. It was a II last year, but in defense, it was a much easier piece last year.

To change the subject, and for the record, I hate group projects. Each group member was supposed to email me with their portion of the group essay, but only one person got back to me. The fact that I have to fabricate the rest of it infuriates me.

Well, I need to get started on that essay before I fall asleep here. Farewell...

The Facts

Who am I?

I am Kara, compulsive writer with chronic writer's block, musician who suffers from constant dealing with amateurs, student who has to deal with idiots everyday...

Most of that's here is my life and my writing, my rants and my declarations of other people's idiocy, my music and anything else I feel the need to put here.

I have two friends, Katy, my beta, and Hannah(AKA Wilson) my editor...

If you wish to friend me, go ahead and do so, but post in my most recent entry telling me the reason or I'll go over to your journal and ask you why you friended me...

So, go on and take flight...
