      I went to see Pirates 3 on Thursday evening, it was pretty amazing. My best friend and I dressed as pirates :-) It was awesome.

      School is out, finally! Now my busy summer starts! WHOO! :-S...

      Anyways, not much else to say...goodbye.

      I'm bored, here's a journal entry...even though...no one reads my journals..other than a few of you...and I've not been on here enough to make friends with people...other than a few of you.

      6 days of school left for me..I'm SO happy.

      This journal sucks...goodbye.

    • Once upon a time...

      There was this girl, who never made journal entries. Sound like anyone you know? Yup it's me. It's been forever and half since I've made a journal entry. I've been quite busy, I've pretty much had a choir competition every weekend these past 3 months, and lots of rehersals during the week. Which gives me no time to do anything. And when I was online I never wanted to do anything but check my e-mail.
      Choir is over, band is over, jazz band is over. I finally get a break! So now I get to think about summer! I'm going to Colorado, California, Showchoir camp, and maybe on a family vacation. The rest of the time I will be working. So I'm not sure if I'll have time to do a lot of journal entries.
      What are you all doing for summer? Hopefully something exciting!

      Have a good day!!

      Eh, not really. So just thought I should make a quick journal, 1) because I'm bored, 2) I have nothing else to do.

      I hate sponge curlers...they suck. For choir we have to do that... smiley4.gif

      FIRST CHOIR COMPETITION IS THIS SATURDAY AT COLUMBIA MO!!!! I'm excited smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif Just Kidding, it got canceled because of the ice storm that is happening this weekend...and then the snow coming in later. It has been rescheduled for March 3rd
      FIRST CHOIR COMPETITION IS NEXT SATURDAY AT PLEASENT HILL MO!!!! (maybe this one won't get canceled)

      Eh, that's about it.

      Bye smiley12.gif

      I should probably make a journal...seeing how it was last month that I last made one. Sorry everyone, I've just been busy...and not up to making a journal...

      I did make a journal on Christmas...yet I forgot to post it...I know I'm pretty smart...I had finished it..then left the room...came back in and closed everything..

      So here's the updates!

      Choir: Eh, pretty good...solo contest is coming up..I just got my music, even though I was supposed to have it about 2 weeks ago...the choir teacher never gave it to me. I'm kinda mad about that...I have to have my songs memorized by the 3rd. Other than that...competition starts the week after we get back from break! Yay! I'm not really too excited about it though...I'm really sick of being in an all girls choir.

      Band: I hate concert band

      Recent: I am working at a local store in my town called Perfect Touch/Hertzbergs Furniture. I'm doing inventory, but I talked to the lady about having a job there...she said she's not hiring at the moment, but she would call me as soon as she needs me. I've been working there since Tuesday, and I'm pretty much sick of it.
      My dog died today..I'm kinda upset...actually I'm really upset, she was a good dog...she got hit by a car...I guess or else that's what I was told...

      Current Problems: Well I'm out of physical therapy, been out since the beginning of the month, and my hip...hurts. I've been doing my exercises..and it just makes my pain even worse..I really don't want to go back to the doctor...and my parents don't believe me on how bad it hurts...so I'm trying to fight off the pain.
      I've been thinking about my grandma a lot lately...it's kind of depressing..
      I have too much time on my hands, I need to find other things to do...

      Guys: I don't like anyone, and I do not want a boyfriend, it's too much trouble, I'm too busy with school and choir right now, I don't need/want a boyfriend.

      Electronics: I got music videos on my iPod! My brother got an Xbox 360, it's fun to play on. That's pretty much it...

      So What I got for Christmas:
      Converse shoes, shirts, comforter thing, socks, lots of Jones Soda, iPod accessories, jazz piano cds...and some other little things...
      What'd you get?

      Eh I guess that about ends it...

      makenzie22

      Hey All, So I thought I should make a journal...it's been awhile.

      Choir: Learning Christmas music, so it's not all that fun. I'm just excited for competitions to be starting up after Christmas.

      Band: I miss marching band SO much...concert band really sucks. But right now I'm only in band 3 times a week, because I have physical therapy in the morning (talk about later)

      Musical: Is over...now I'm in the play The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, except, not really...I was until I got replaced because can't be there for two performances..lol oh well...I'm still gonna go to the rehersals to be there for a friend.

      Guys: I like one, but my parents don't like him...even though he's amayzing, and I like him a lot...too bad for them...I mean it is my life...right??? smiley6.gif

      Recent Problems: My hip...is like screwed up..I have streched ligaments...and I have to take physical therapy to make them stronger..and well I've been doing physical therapy for about a month..and it's not helping..it's hurting...so I might have to have surgery... smiley2.gifsmiley4.gif

      So that's about it...Everyone have a good Thanksgiving smiley12.gif

      So it's been awhile I suppose...Here's what I've been doing...

      Choir: We've been fighting, arguing, hating each other...but in the end we're getting along. Tomorrow we perform in front of our community...and well our costumes didn't come in...so we just have to wear formal dresses. It was kind of upsetting. Oh well. This weekend I had District Honor Choir...it was fun...but I've lost my voice....anyone wanna help me find it?

      Band: We've had competitions every weekend except this past one, and of course I had something going on. This weekend is our big competition...at MU, we have to leave at like 5:30 in the morning...WHOO! Then other than that...we're working on Veterans Day music, then I don't know what we do after that...

      Musical: We're doing Suessical the Musical, and I'm Mrs. Mayor Who, and so that's starting to come together a little bit...we perform in two weeks...our main role...really can't sing...

      Currently: I'm watching sleepy hollow, and it's pretty much freaking me out. It's the one with Johnny Depp.

      Guys: I feel used by one.


      'tis all.

      So it's been awhile since my last post. Nothing much has happened.

      Right now I'm getting ready to leave for drumline and choir practices.

      I'm section leader of second sopranos in choir now...I was super excited about that smiley0.gif

      Band had our first competition 9/30 it went okay.

      I've decided to use white strips now, which are in my mouth...they're disgusting..but I wanted to use them because antivan is coming up and I need to look beautiful for choir!! lol

      We're supposed to be tanning for choir... smiley4.gif tanning beds freak me out...so I'm using tanning lotion...it smells good smiley1.gif

      That's all for now..I need to go..

      Later Days smiley12.gif
