I guess it will be nice to go back to school, then she won't be able to bug me about my room. Yes yes, its a titty bit messy, but who's isn't? besides lindsay's) on the yay side, no school again tomorrow thats three wonderful non-school days. Yay for poopy weather that doesn't kill us. Sure, as soon as we all get our stuff in our room and organized, we have to haul it all out again b/c of FRANCES. Stupid. Ever notice how stupid is such a funny word? hehee just makes me laugh when I look at it. on yeah, what about IVin? who names theese hurricanes and who tormented theese people as children.

Hey guys! I haven't been on-line in such a long time it seems like it's been forever! I just have been so busy I just haven't had time to get to the computer. But anyways I guess the latest news with me is that on friday I found out I was accepted to Interlochen Arts Academy! (I can't believe it, but I am sooo happy)I didn't really tell anyone that I had auditioned last winter, I have been waiting all year to find out and I didn't want a lot of people to know.
I have been soooooo busy! I have had like four days to get all of my stuff and fill out like a hundred forms. I got my lab top yesterday so I still will be able to e~mail and do this journal thing. And I got all of my room/bed stuff today (I had to go to 3 different malls to get everything!) Then tomorrow I'm going to go get my cell phone, all give it to you all when I get on line next time. Plus I have to go to my old school tomorrow! I have to return my books and say goodbye to some friends. So yeah I'm like freaking out1 I leave Wednesday night!
Well, I have to go but I hope everyone is doing well!

my dreams [01 Sep 2003|01:33pm]

[ mood | quixotic ]

labor day and the sky is gray and the air is chilly and the rain is incessant. it is 1:30 and i'm still in my pajamas. i'm downloading the new version of AIM which is silly because i hate AIM and also they will come out with a new version in about 20 minutes. but oh well. i'm taking a break from cleaning my room. i decided to clean my closet.......and after i finished listening to jewel pieces of you and u2 rattle and hum, i got all the clothes folded/hung up, all the shoes lined up, and all the crap on the other side spread out in piles around me and on the shelves. meanwhile, back in my room.....

but i've got to finish it because it makes me hate being in there to have it so messy. i have two laundry baskets of clean clothes, one containing nothing but light blue polos, navy blue shorts, blue socks, and twin-size sheets that no longer are sandy. (i can't believe 3 weeks later i haven't emptied that laundry basket.) and there are piles of books and papes everywhere. my rice application, my oberlin application, my rochester/eastman application, my peabody application that wants an essay on my most important musical experience. no-brainer.....yet how to write it?

i've had a series of interesting dreams the past few nights. friday night, i dreamed that interlochen was a circus training camp. it wasn't really at interlochen, but it was definitely interlochen. and i was training to do the flying trapeze. it was pretty sweet-- i climbed up this ladder and then swung down this trapeze. then i rode this crazy bike thing around the tent.

saturday night i dreamed i was on the cross country team again and we trained in the halls of some random high school. and we ran through the rain. it was trippy.

last night i dreamed about robert....we went down by the lake but it was this weird lake in my uncle's backyard. it had strange scary creatures in it and it was really more like a stream. the creatures looked like sea anemone or those weird singing seashells in the little mermaid. the sun was setting so the trees and water looked really pretty then i went back to stone which was really the cafeteria at my elementary school to get dinner and they wouldn't give me food even though it was sitting right there in front of them because it was after 6:45. so i went to the salad bar and the lunch ladies yelled at me and chased me away and when i went back outside with the stolen salad i couldn't find robert.

now to go hang out with my cool friends baermann, klose, rose, and weber!
i think i'll assign my mood to jo's favorite lj mood

i think that if people have a journal (robert, valerie, megan, andrea........) they should write in it!

[29 Aug 2003|04:46pm]

so i'm sitting there in calc.......zoning out.....she was going on about the horizontal asymptote of this one problem, and i was daydreaming about interlochen of course. and i felt something on my back....very subtle and gentle....and all of a sudden i was back at interlochen, in kresge, listening to the copland clarinet concerto, with walter's hand on by back. i seriously thought that my acute memory was providing me with some sensory details. it wouldn't be the first time.

then my math teacher starts looking at me. i thought she had figured out that the glazed look in my eyes meant i was not in the class and was instead suddenly remembering something i'd actually rather not (my god, how do i get myself into things like that....i still don't understand....) and then she said "this can't be good." i realized the entire calc class was looking at me. i reached around to feel my back, realizing that someone HAD indeed touched me and that everyone else knew something i didn't. a sign fell off my back......kick me....the wonderful prankster eric was being himself as usual. the entire class started
laughing. i told him that i KNEW i'd felt something but thought i might be going crazy. because that is entirely possible.

so anyway i miss you all so much that it blows my mind. how can two months mean so much? is it fate? was i destined to meet you all? why did it happen and then end? is it chance? like in history today-- the great divergence-- was it fate or was it a happy chance like jack goldstone says. and what should i do now? dwell on it? keep it alive? or simply hold it as a one-time thing?

something else that scares me is that as the first summer receds in the distance, its meaning changes. it is weird to think that the meaning of this past summer will change. i don't know, i think in some ways that really has to do with the fact that i'm not entirely who i was that first summer. and some of what was the same both summers is a representation of the parts of me that are the same. and some of wht is different is me changing. and some of it is other people changing. i don't know. it's too much to ponder. i have had a ponderous day. mostly i am discontent with school and people at school and some of my classes and i miss you like crazy. like craaaaaaaaaaaazy. i don't have enough contact with you. i miss seeing you at breakfast, after photo, and all evening. like a routine. my routine now is kind of lonely......wake up to be the only one in my room, get ready for the day alone, drive to school with siblings, sit in a large but silent group while announcements are read, go to class wher i sit and listen to lecture or else do something that is of much less value to me than anything i did this summer, go to lunch for 30 minutes which is nothing, more class, and then........go home. check email. go running. take a shower. alone. i miss the companionship. the knowing that someone would always be there to chill with. to wander, to sit in the grass, to play open 5ths in C major, to go down by the lake, to shave our legs in the sink.............anyway i'm turning into an emo kid.

i love you all

k this one is better [28 Aug 2003|01:22pm]



Once upon a time there has a young MUSICIAN named TIM. He was SINFULLY STALKING in the HILARIOUS forest when he met EVIL PETE, a run-away DRUG DEALER from the CREEPY Queen PATTI.

TIM could see that EVIL PETE was hungry so he reached into his NALGENE BOTTLE and give him his ANNOYING YELLOW JELLO. EVIL PETE was thankful for TIM's YELLOW JELLO, so he told TIM a very SHITTY story about Queen PATTI's daughter ANDREA. How her mother, the CREEPY Queen PATTI, kept her locked away in a STONE CAFETERIA protected by a gigantic CHIPMUNK, because ANDREA was so ECCENTRIC.

TIM CACKLED. He vowed to EVIL PETE the DRUG DEALER that he would save the ECCENTRIC ANDREA. He would MASTURBATE the CHIPMUNK, and take ANDREA far away from her eveil mother, the CREEPY Queen PATTI, and MARRY her.

Then, all of the sudden, there was a WEIRD SUNSET and EVIL PETE the DRUG DEALER began to laugh. With a puff of smoke he turned into the gigantic CHIPMUNK from his story. CREEPY Queen PATTI RAN out from behind a BADGE and struck TIM dead. In the far off STONE CAFETERIA you could hear a PIANO MUSIC.

This is hilarious.... [28 Aug 2003|01:15pm]



Once upon a time there has a young MASSAGE THERAPIST named PETE. He was SINFULLY MASTURBATING in the FUNNY forest when he met EVIL TIM, a run-away MUSICIAN from the HEINOUS Queen LIA.

PETE could see that EVIL TIM was hungry so he reached into his NALGENE BOTTLE and give him his ANNOYING HUMMUS. EVIL TIM was thankful for PETE's HUMMUS, so he told PETE a very SHITTY story about Queen LIA's daughter ANDREA. How her mother, the HEINOUS Queen LIA, kept her locked away in a CONCERT HALL protected by a gigantic HORSE, because ANDREA was so ECCENTRIC.

PETE LAUGHED. He vowed to EVIL TIM the MUSICIAN that he would save the ECCENTRIC ANDREA. He would LOVE the HORSE, and take ANDREA far away from her eveil mother, the HEINOUS Queen LIA, and MARRY her.

Then, all of the sudden, there was a WEIRD ECLIPSE and EVIL TIM the MUSICIAN began to laugh. With a puff of smoke he turned into the gigantic HORSE from his story. HEINOUS Queen LIA PLAYED out from behind a UMRELLA and struck PETE dead. In the far off CONCERT HALL you could hear a MOANING.

Epiphany [21 Aug 2003|10:52pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

Life isn't about keeping score.
It's not about who you've dated, or haven't dated.
It isn't about who you've kissed, or which guy or girl likes you. In fact, it's not about grades, money, or colleges.
Life isn't about if you have lots of friends.
But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about how you feel about yourself. It's about sticking up for your friends.
Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence.
It's about what you say and what you mean.
It's about seeing people for who they are and not what they have what they have.

Most of all, it is about choosing to use your life to touch someone else's.

INTERLOCHEN 2003-thank you so much for everything. You've each touched my life in more ways than you can imagine. I love you and adore all of you.

Tears* [21 Aug 2003|09:25pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

WOW, everyone is just living their own lives aren't they. I miss you guys sooo soo much! I can't even explain.

So I started school today, DEAR GOD SAVE ME! Everyone pray that I am accepted to the academy, please! Christian was accepted today and he was offered 25,000 dolars in financial aide...wow, I'm so jealous.

But, I hope everyone is great...I noticed Patti is still up to par in her stalking quota and Genevieve seems to be doing well with her russian composers :)
Which reminds me! Does anyone have Davorak's 9th symphony and Prokofeiv's Grieg piano piece on CD or mp3?

But, I hope all is well in the Italian Family Interlochen Veteren's lives.
