Holiday Breaks

Well I'm glad to be out of school, but I am really missing my friends and cousins. I haven't seen any of them in months! (My friends from my old town i mean) There was a chance of going to my grandparents house for New Years and seeing some of my cousins, but my mom couldn't convince them to go. Sigh. I really wanted to talk with them. I'm glad I can keep in contact through e-mail but it is defantly not as good. My family is really bad about seeing people during vacations. We haven't seen anyone for Christmas in ages, and no one wants to visit us out in the middle of nowhere. A trip that should take 3 hours (starting at my grandparents house) takes 6 because the roads are so windy. Ugggggg. It was a pain when we first moved here and had been in the car for 2 days. Its too bad we don't live closer to family. I don't care about the weather of an area as much as who we are by. Everyone lives too far away for a casual visit. And the people who are closer don't have any kids my age. All my cousins that are my age live around 15 hours drive time away. The nearest airport is around 2 hours away, and thats not a fun drive. *sigh* We definatly live in the middle of nowhere.

ok, so I'm working on writing this song. The only problem is I have writers block. I've got the melody line and the left hand (written for piano by the way) that goes with it. But I can't come up with any cords or side melodies to go with it. Its very frustrating. I've listened to music and looked in my music for ideas. The only problem is I find sounds I like (chords, etc.) but they aren't in the right key. I think I need to change the key because it has a ton of sharps and flats in it. I'll just make most of the sharps accidentials (sharps/flats in the music by the note instead of in the key signature.) I think I'll try to make an accompaniment to go with it too. Probably in flute since thats the only other instrument I know how to play. But I've always wanted to play the Saxophone and Gutair. I guess I'll have to learn those another day. Maybe I should take private lessons in college. Hmmm...

Its Almost Christmas!!!!

I love breaks! I can't wait until Christmas break! Two whole weeks! I've been waiting for this for ever!!!!!! Too bad I still have half a week. Ugggggg. And I have to give a presentation tomorow. Wish me luck!
For some reason, and probably an accurate one, I have a hunch that no one is gonna read this. Oh well, I don't really care. Though if no one reads it that means I'm typing to myself. Ok.... strange thought. I know this picture is kinda random, but thats ok. Its a pict. of my brother and my x-cat. When we moved we couldn't bring our cat with us. I miss u Pepper!!!!!!!! ( I know, such an original name!) :P see ya!

I think my computer had a mind of its own. Sometimes it lets me log on to my blog, sometimes it doesn't. Like yesterday it wouldn't let me on, but today it would. weird/ annoying. These pictures are of my family on our trip to the coast for Thanksgiving. I took the scenery picture. I'm planning on (eventually) putting it in my room. I really like to take pictures, and this was too amazing of a place to not take a picture.

Its Almost Christmas!!!

Wow, its been a long time since I've written. Sadly, not much has happened. I've adusted to my new town, and I am now learning street names! I know, sad. Its been like 6 months. Wow. It dosn't feel like its been that long.Tomorow night I'm going caroling with a bunch of friends then coming back to my house for mexican hot choloate! I'm way excited.

I can't wait till Christmas. Its my favorite holiday, right along side my birthday. I don't just love getting presents, but I love giving them. I'm making my brothers and sisters cool gifts. Actually, I'm buying one because we drew names from a hat and thats the person we buy for. I got my youngest brother. It was really easy to buy for him. He's three a few days after Christmas, I just got him some cars. I would tell you what I am making for my other sibs, but I don't want to risk them reading this and finding out.

I wonder what I'm getting for Christmas? My wish list isn't very long this year, so I might get everything on it! I wished for a new blow dryer (my old one broke), clothes and books. I know, I know. Books? But the libary here stinks and I need something to read. I think that if I didn't have books to read my life would feel empty. That or I'd be really bored all the time.

It has snowed alot since the last time I wrote! I thought we were going to get a snow day this week, but nope. Sigh. Oh well. Mabye next time!!

P.S. sorry if the different fonts bug you. I had way too much fun with it. :)
