Worn Out

I'm getting a little better at keeping up with my blog... of course, talking bout it last night at Serena's house would never have anything to do with it right? lol.

Am finally done with the Music Festival at ECC, which went smoother than we all thought it would, but now the normal week is going to be a slow drag compared to what we had.... I can't believe Debbie made 600 cookies, and we sold most of them... I only say that because we got to eat a few...lol.

Back to school on Monday, and am in no way ready for it... lol. Not only do I have a paper and a rough draft due, I've not worked out for a week due to spring break and the fitness center being closed, lol, so I'm going to have to get back into the swing of all of that as well. lol.
And mom's pestering me to pic my last two fall classes....yech....don't wanna....not really interested in any of them, and it's hard to find classes that I already have prerequisites for and that will fit around the other classes that I do have picked out already, and since I already registered for those, I can't change them...well.....I could, but it would be a huge pain... lol.

Back on speaking terms with my bro and sis (for now) lol, which is good.

Other than that, I'm just worn out and can't wait for this semester to be over.....lol.

Going, going, gone....

Crazy...what else would I do? lol.
After the International Day at college, which went really well, was the first concert for the ECC Community band, Jazz Band and percussion ensemble.
Mom came and got some pics, mostly of the back of me and she took a video of the last song that we performed; which was Just a Closer Walk with Me.

Tha's the video, which I put up on Youtube.

Finally get Spring Break from the 23rd to the 27th, although my boss Debbie is making me work at Cafe Central on Friday and Saturday for the college's Music Festival that they host every year....so tha'll be interesting and I'll probably need a shrink after it all.

Saw "Once on this Island" performed by the college's theater group on Thursday night. Jess went with me and we enjoyed it. It's a Caribbean folk tale that the Little Mermaid was originally derived from. The group performed very well.

Our next band concert is May 11, 2009. A monday night, only 4 days after my b-day. lol... i can't believe that I'm almost 20! It's almost scary...lol.

Kourtney had her b-day party yesterday...I had fun. lol. Got to shoot Bro. Brian's 22 gauge handgun...I'm not too big on handguns, but that one was nice...lol. Then I shot the 20 gauge shotgun...not bad, for only one shot.....of course when Bro. Brian saw me this morning he teased me about being Annie Oakley...lol.

Really annoyed with my bro and sis, but won't go into detail on that, but they're both mad at me and mom. I'm not taking them anyplaces anymore. It's just not worth the hassle.
Then with Miss Kenzie arguing and backtalking all the time. I really need out of the house, school's not enough because I'm always worried bout something, or having to deal with a deadline. I just need a break with no worries or deadlines, which is why I'm not thinking about that dentist appointment on Thursday night.....lol.

Thas bout it for now.

Recent news in the world of craziness

Work has been going well. I am enjoying it and have made several new friends, and a few casual aquaintances.

School itself is the hardest issue. Keeping up with my homework is a little hard at times, but only cause I am so forgetful. Especially for Oral Communications, but tha's mainly because it's a seperate website that we have to use for all of our assignments.

Just recently volunteered at the college for the International Day, and am working on the 28 & 29 of March in the Cafe during the Music Festival that the college has every year.

First concert is this Wednesday at the ECC theater at 7pm....and I'm dreading it a whole lot >_<

Almost done with my Foundation Seminar class, Wednesday being the last day, so that'll help a bit. I'll be able to work out earlier in the morning and get to work earlier, which means more time on the clock and more cash in my pocket...or rather in my accounts. lol

I suppose there is more...lol..but I'm off to bed now.

* the pic is one of the 'trading cards' from International Day, it's me dressed in the Japanese traditional yukata. *
