Merry Christmas!!

God, I honestly have no idea why I meriting this post right now.
I mean writing. Damn you, autocorrect.

Plus, it's 2;30 am. I didn't mean to put a semicolon there, but yeah, it's really goddamn early.

I just can't fall back to sleep. So I thought blogging you guys a Christmas post would help me gfall asleep.

That one wasn't autocorrect. But I think you get what I meant. You're smart like that.

So, merry Christmas. I probably won't remember typing this in the proper morning, so I'm posting it now. 

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night('s sleep)!
See what I did there?

Sleepless, yet not in Seattle

As the title suggests, I can't sleep.
I'm just too excited!!!

Tomorrow is the first time I'm seeing my boyfriend after out first date, and I'm just too excited to sleep. I want to sleep, because then tomorrow will be here faster, but I just can't.

Dilemmas, dilemmas...

I also want to sleep because I'm tired. Still, sleep just won't come to me!

Sleepily excited,
~RJ

General Update

Since I haven't posted in a while, I decided to update you on my life.

Last week (Oct. 7-11) was Homecoming week, and Saturday was the dance. Some weeks ago, I got up the courage to ask the guy I like to the dance, and he accepted.

Last night (as I'm typing this. I really mean Saturday.) was the most magical night of my life. My date (not sure what to call him since I don't want to use his real name on here) and I met up at my house for pictures, then went out to dinner, then hung out at his house for a bit since Mom made us early reservations, then went to the dance.

We slow danced a couple times(amazing), danced crazily for a little bit(I finally know someone who likes to dance like me - awesome!), and sat in the cafeteria away from the noise for most of it, since it was really loud and crowded in the gym. 

After the dance, Mom picked us up and dropped him off at his house...
(This is where the best part starts!!)
I walked him up to the door, and on the way I asked if I was his girlfriend. He said yes, then put his arm around me. And once we got to the door, we hugged.

I got a boyfriend!!! Yay!!! ETERNAL GLEE!!!!!
-----
About half an hour ago, I texted him to ask if he wanted to hang out tomorrow, but it turns out he already had plans to hang out with one of his friends, and I can respect that.

Even if said friend is Marcus Antonius Estupidus, as I call him. Cause I think the kid is an idiot. But still...

With eternal glee(and a boyfriend!!!),
~RJ

More from Bean's Band Camp

Band geeks playing keep-away with a baseball cap. Had me in a huge giggle fit for like 10-15 minutes.
The red blur in the first pic is the hat.
---
Ugh. Lost quite a bit of the post cuz I didn't save it. Grr.
---
I have my schedule! It's insanely simple, and there's a pic below to prove it!
See? So damn simple it hurts!! I might ask Bean later if that's normal. It doesn't look right!!!

Kyle is about to cry according to some people like Bean and... I gotta check my alarms, brb.

Back now. Had to adjust an alarm from 7:30 pm to 7:30 am.

I don't like the songs we're playing for our first show. I just don't!!

Gonna chat with Bean cause we have a break now.

Bean said my schedule is actually rather normal. But it looks TOO simple!

Kelbo doesn't know what a brony is. OMG.

Giggle fit ensued because Kelbo played a weird ringtone. And Adam made a weird comment.

My shoulder is pained. I need a shoulder rub or an ice pack...

Bean's Band Camp and Scheduling Confusion

Okay, so the schedules are available for viewing. On the computer, that is, not the skyward mobile app. Trust me, I tried to find it.
I will look on the computer ASAP, and tell u when I do.

Today is the second day of Bean's Band Camp. Yesterday, I had trouble curbing the instinct to do what we did at actual band camp(say "hut" when attention is called, say "hit" every four counts instead of every eight, etc.) but I did pretty well with very few mistakes. I'm kinda wanting to show Bean some of the marching things I learned at band camp, but idk.

Tomorrow is the house warming party. Bean will be coming(I asked yesterday), along with multiple other people. A few of Mom's friends, at least one set of neighbors, all that good stuff. Probably--er, no, MAYBE-- some relatives as well.

The washer here is really loud and it scared me at first. I thought it would explode or something. Now I'm used to it, though, so that's all good.

On the subject of band, we have three less people than last year. And I don't mean that we lost three seniors, I mean between the seniors leaving and the freshies incoming, we have three less people than last year. Thirty-three people will be in our band.
Comprised of:
Four flutes, six clarinets, four alto saxophones, one French horn, two oboes, one tenor saxophone, one Bari saxophone, four trumpets, three trombones, one baritone, two tubas, and five percussionists.
The sections with losses in membership:
Flutes, clarinets, and French horn.
Sections with gains in membership:
Saxes, trumpets, and trombones.
The other sections either gained as many as they lost(oboe, percussion, baritone), or just didn't gain or lose anyone(tenor and Bari sax, tuba).
Technically, we shouldn't have lost a baritone, but he seems to think he's quit. Luckily, a new freshie(and its a GIRL!!) came up to take his place. Yay for low brass girls!!!

I just had to put three exclamation points there.

While we're on the topic of band, for jazz band I'm gonna be playing the trombone! I'm pretty damn excited for that, because once I've got it down, I'll be the low brass master!!! Yeah buddy!!

It's About Time...

...To be getting back to school!

Quite frankly, I'm really rather excited to be going back to school. I get to do band and hang out with Bean, I'll be getting to know (... um so there's world history, English, chemistry, and speech) five new teachers. Granted, I already know a bit about one of them, so yeah.

I'm taking nine different classes this year. And they are:
Band, world history, English 2, Spanish 2, PE, speech, drivers Ed, chemistry 1, and Algebra 2. Out of those nine classes, I have ten different teachers (there are 3 PE teachers, and I have a different one each semester. 2 semesters), and I already know 5. I've mentioned at least 2 of those five, Bean(band) and Smithy(algebra 2).

If I can, I'll live blog the first day, or the second and third days(A and B days, block schedule, remember?). So look out for a post on the 19th, since I'll either have a live blog or a post saying I didn't get a chance to live blog that day and I will the next 2 days.

I only know for sure the placement of one class in my schedule, band, since its always the same no matter what. I will definitely get my schedule the first day, but if I happen to find out earlier, I'll tell you. If I don't, it'll come on the 19th.

August 8-10, from 3-5 pm and from 7-8:30 pm, I will be at Bean's Band Camp. That is what I'm calling it from now on.
There, we will decide the color of this years band shirts, get the freshies up to speed on marching, and see how well the drum majors can handle us.

I have been working on getting prepared for another year of high school. I haven't gotten a school supply list yet, but I have written down what classes I have with what teachers, and yesterday I made multiple attempts at a map of the school. I'll try again later, maybe tomorrow if I have nothing to do, but I'm taking a break for now. At least I got the general shape of the building down by using an aerial view map and drawing the building's different roof sections. I even color-coded it by the purpose of the section underneath the roof bit!

I'm gonna relax a bit now, check Facebook and twitter perhaps. I had fun updating you!

Look for more posts over the coming weeks!

Bye,

Novel Ideas

I want to write a book. I have wanted to for a while, but an old episode of NCIS gave me more inspiration.

Though I have no idea where to start. Maybe I'll convince Tom to set up the hammock in the backyard so I can sit there and think. I don't know, maybe.

No hammock. And I remembered that when I try to write things I usually get writer's block. Also, if I based a book on my life it would be boring. I have a boring life. Who wants to read about teenagers with normal lives?

I could take the more interesting parts of my posts and try and piece them into something awesome, but I don't know how that would work.

Oh, and I'm sorry I didn't blog every day at schol bowl camp. I was very busy having fun and learning things.

Aaagh! Breakthrough!

A novel in blog posts! I've seen similar done before with journal entries, so it's possible to do. I mean, my best writing is on this blog, so it only makes sense, right?
And I'll base some characters off people I've blogged about, just with either their blog-nicknames or names I make up.

I'm gonna look through old blog posts for ideas...

Bye!
