A week as an alto

Last week my choir director thought it might be fun to shake things up a bit and move me and a few other people around. One minute I was a soprano, singing the highest notes in the class (thank you very much) and the next i was moved to the lowest and weakest section in the choir- the altos. I was completely devastated. I was scared for both myself and the sopranos, because being the loudest in my section, they would need to step it up without me. not trying to brag or anything. but with the support of my friends i made it through the week, strengthening the altos as i accepted the challenge. On Friday though, she moved me back to the sopranos where the help was truly needed. I am back to being a soprano one, where my voice belongs.

BTW isn't this weather amazing?

Hola bloggers!

Its been a long time, so this is just an update.

Camp was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it was!
Life Changing!

School started 2 weeks ago and i love my classes. I have all pre ap classes including algebra. Oi. That class is not much fun, but i love it anyways. My favorite core class is Us history though. US history is so much fun plus the teacher is hilarious. We watch funny videos in the middle of our notes and we learn a ton.
Now my favorite class is choir. that class is amazing and i have it at the end of the day so we have something to look forward too. Karate is definitely whipping me back into shape. but its fun.
I have a lot of classes with my best friends so its great.
8th grade is definitely going to be a great year!

2 days!

2 days full of waiting. 2 days full of packing. 2 days left of boredom. 2 days until camp!
Its a bitter sweet feeling- Knowing that i'm going to have the best week of my year and knowing that i will be away from my beloved friends. I will miss them dearly.

This is why i am sad. But i am also nervous. Nervous for acceptance, nervous for the weather. Nervous that i will forget to pack something insanely important. Nervous for my brother who will be attending the towers just across the road from me.

I ask that you guys will keep us in your prayers as we head off to camp this sunday.

I will miss you guys!

friendships and journeys

Over the years i have aquired a multitude of friends- many who i could not live with out. The hardest part of friendships is leaving them. Even if one of my friends leaves only for a short time i can get anxious and mildly depressed. Time seems to drag slowly on and i can't wait to see them again.

So i embark on a journey.

The journey always begins with package. Which means luggage. Which means a trunk. This year i got a green trunk. It was a little plain so i got paint. I am not the most artistic person in the world so i got stencils which did not help at all. painting wasn't the best idea i've ever had. I think i'll stick with stickers. ;)

Camp is still a few weeks away but i can't wait to start packing. thats the best part of pre-camp.

Hopefully my journeys will pass the time more quickly. If not, god help me!

so a while ago i posted a video of nigahiga called how to be ninga. Here is another video by them - How to be gangsta!

New Beginnings

Many times i get a tune in my head, though i have no clue what the name of the song is. The same with words that seem to flow together like they were meant to be a poem. This is the birth of a song. I write these words down and try my best to find a fitting tune out of my mind. I look for more words to compliment the original lyrics, but usually nothing turns up.I will stay awake for hours trying to find something, when eventually i will fall asleep. these thoughts and words will be lost in the endless space of my mind or forever doomed to my notebook where they don't get the chance to be heard. I start again. Another song. A new beginning.

I honestly have no idea why i wrote that. I had nothing to write about, so i decides to write about that. Ok see ya!!!!
