      Wow.
      Random, eh?
      Unless you live in my world....
      :P
      How's it goin, eh?

      Today went by pretty fast for a Monday, if I do say so myself. Had a stupid test in Social Studies today. Sorry, Mrs. Seymour, but I learned about how the Candadian Government works back in grade 6. Only, of course, to be showed up in grade 8 when I read a book called How to be a Canadian, Chapter 14. The chapter was entitled "How the Canadian Government Works." You turn the page, and you see a blank page. Except for in the middle, where you see two little words that say "It doesnt."

      One of the best books I ever read....

      Did nothing but have arm-wrestling tournaments in band today. The teacher, Ms. Tebay, was in a practice room, working with the 20's and 30's on their major project for the semester, arranging a song of their choice for our band. (I'm doing the My December remix by Linkin Park next year.)

      My arm still hurts... :P

      No choir today, which sucks. Except of course for Ryan and Tara, who have solos in the next concert. Whatever. It's all cool. I just look forward to choir all the time. Choir is awesome.

      SONG OF THE DAY TIME!:
      American Idiot by Green Day..... just because it's an awesome song...
      ------------------------------
      Don't wanna be an American idiot.
      Don't want a nation that under the new media.
      And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
      The subliminal mindfuck America.

      Welcome to a new kind of tension.
      All across the alien nation.
      Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
      Television dreams of tomorrow.
      We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
      Convincing them to walk you.

      Well maybe I'm the fuckhead America.
      I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
      Now everybody do the propaganda.
      And sing along in the age of paranoia.

      Welcome to a new kind of tension.
      All across the alien nation.
      Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
      Television dreams of tomorrow.
      We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
      Convincing them to walk you.

      Don't wanna be an American idiot.
      Don't want a nation controlled by the media.
      Information nation of hysteria.
      It's going out to idiot America.

      Welcome to a new kind of tension.
      All across the alien nation.
      Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
      Television dreams of tomorrow.
      We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
      Convincing them to walk you.

      Feel the power of uneventfulness...

      Got lots of sleep last night, 2am-11am. I woke up and my brother's party was still going on. Fortunately, my friend Shawna called me up and we went down to the new mall... not the welfare mall or the good mall... the new mall... Clearwater Landing. I caught the bus downtown and met her at EB Games.

      That place is amazing. Games lining the walls completely... this is exactly what my area needs.

      Unfortunately, Shawna came in as soon as I stepped in the door and told me that we were going to her place. I would have liked more of a chance to look around, but whatever.

      She had just bought Sonic Heroes for her PS2, and we basically played that all day.

      And that's where we stand now. I'm at home, my brother is sleeping (finally), and I need to come up with a song to post...
      Motivation by Sum 41.... just because it was the song playing on my Windows Media Player.
      --------------------------
      What's the difference of never knowing at all?
      When every step I take is always too small.
      Maybe it's just something I can't admit but lately,
      I feel like I don't give a shit

      Motivation such an aggravation,
      Accusations don't know how to take them,
      Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
      Concentration's never hard to break it.
      Situation never what you want it to be.

      What's the point of never making mistakes?
      Self-indulgence such a hard habit to break.
      It's all just a waste of time in the end.
      I don't care so why should I even pretend.

      Motivation such an aggravation,
      Accusations don't know how to take them,
      Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
      Concentration's never hard to break it.
      Situation never what you wanted

      Nothing's new, everything's the same.
      Keeps on dragging me down, it's getting kind of lame.
      Falling further behind, there's nothing to explain.
      No matter what you say nothing's gonna change my mind.

      Can't depend on doubt until the end.
      It seems like leaving friends has become
      This years trend and though I can't pretend.
      Im framed to be this way
      It's not the same but who's to blame.
      For all those stupid things I never said.

      Motivation such an aggravation,
      Accusations don't know how to take them,
      Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
      Concentration's never hard to break it.

    • My feet hurt........

      14 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Mornin all!
      Hows it goin?

      Loooooooooooooooooong day today. Woke up at 10, and just hung out till 1:30. At this point in time, I went downtown to sell Chocolates to help fund my Band trip to Europe. There are two malls in Fort McMurray:
      The Peter Pond Mall (The Good Mall)
      The Plaza 2 Mall (The Welfare Mall)

      Guess what mall I got stuck with? Let's put it this way.... we only sold 8-three dollar bars in the course of two hours. So...
      3400 (the cost to go to Europe)
      -1800(my deposit already)
      - 24(The total amount of money I made today)
      1576 dollars to go to Europe!

      And my back hurts.... My job is to wash dishes at Boston Pizza. Which is fun, on non-busy nights. Of course, tonight I encountered my first busy night. Constantly leaning over a sink for 5 hours washing dishes hurts the back. Oh well.... I guess It's worth $10/hour.

      Right now, my little brother and 6 of his friends are hanging out in my living room watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Unfortunately, it's his birthday party tonight, so there's nothing I can do to kick them out.

      SONG OF THE DAY!
      Superman by Goldfinger.......... Random song from a CD my co-worker Bob played on the shift tonight.
      -----------------------
      So here I am
      doing everything I can
      holding on to what I am
      pretending I'm a superman
      I'm trying to keep
      the ground on my feet
      it seems the world's
      falling down around me
      the nights are all long
      I'm singing this song
      to try and make the answers
      more than maybe

      and I'm so confused
      about what to do
      sometimes I want
      to throw it all away

      so here I am
      looking older all the time
      growing older all the time
      feeling younger in my mind

      I'm trying to sleep
      I lost count of the sheep
      my mind is racing faster
      every minute
      what could I do more
      yeah I'm really not sure
      I know I'm running circles
      but I can't quit

      and I'm so confused
      about what to do
      sometimes I want to
      throw it all away
      controlling everything in site


      I'm feeling weak
      I don't feel right
      you're telling me
      I have to change
      telling me to act my age
      but if all that I can do
      is just sit and watch time go
      then I'll have to say good bye
      life's too short to watch it fly
      watch it fly
      ---------------------------

      Well, that's it for me... I'm gonna go...... do something..... involving sitting and/or lying down....... because my feet and back hurt.

      I'll talk to ya all later
      P/O, rüster dudes

    • Finally Got Our Act Together

      14 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Woah! There's people in here.......

      Time tends to fly by when you're:
      a: Having fun; and
      b: Bored as hell.

      But hey, might as well tell you about it.
      In band, there's this crazy guy. He plays string bass. His name is Lane Cherpowick. An example of his crazyness... One time, in Band, Lane was chewing on something. Now, the conductor, Ms. Tebay, thought it was rosin. Rosin is the stuff that they use on the String Bass Bows to make them sound good.
      Ms Tebay: "Lane, are you chewing rosin?"
      Lane: "No..."
      Ms Tebay : "Are you chewing gum?"
      Lane: "Yes."
      Ms Tebay: "YOU'RE CHEWING GUM IN THE BAND ROOM????"
      Lane: "It's rosin."
      Class: *Blah!*
      Ms Tebay: "Eeeeww. Spit it out."
      Lane: *Spits it out*. (sure enough, it is rosin) "Aawww... that tasted good, like butter." *Picks it up*
      Ms Tebay: "Dont' put it back in your mo--" *Lane puts it back and starts chewing it again.*

      Right, crazy. Lane, it tastes like butter because it's made of animal fat!

      Anyway, he's always been a fan of my instrument, the Euphonium. He think's it's hot. He said he wanted to marry me so he could get closer to it.

      ...

      Anyway, moving right along to the meaning of the title of this entry. In Drama 10, we work on a project called a "Collecive Creation," where we tell the story of something relavant to Teen life. We've been working on this since late October, and we've gottnen nowhere. We've had to rewrite absolutely everything so the teacher, Ms. Shiels, would be happy. Today is the day where we all pitched in and got stuff done.... 7 minutes, to be exact.... out of a needed 40, but it's a start, right?

      I was suposed to be going over to my Mom's place tonight (my parents are seperated), but that didn't happen. She got called in for work at the last second. So I'm hangin' out here.

      I'm glad I have to work tomorrow night. (I'm a dishwasher at Boston Pizza.) It's my little brother's birthday party. BIG FUN!

      Having nothing better to write about now, here's the song of the day:
      Going Under by Evanessance.......Going Under was suposed to be the title for our Collecive Creation, but since the rewrites happened, it dosen't fit anymore.
      -------------------------
      Now I will tell you what I've done for you
      50 thousand tears I've cried
      Screaming, decieving and bleeding for you
      And you still won't hear me
      (going under)

      Don't want your hand this time, I'll save myself
      Maybe I'll wake up for once
      Not tormented daily, defeated by you
      Just when I'd thought I'd reached the bottom
      I'm dying again

      I'm going under
      Drowning in you
      I'm falling forever
      I've got to break through
      I'm going under

      Blurring and stirring the truth and the lies
      (so I don't know what's real)
      So I don't know what's real and what's not
      Always confusing the thoughts in my head
      So I can't trust myself anymore
      I'm dying again

      I'm going under
      drowning in you
      I'm falling forever
      I've got to break through

      So go on and scream
      Scream at me I'm so far away
      I won't be broken again
      I've got to breathe
      I can't keep going under

      I'm dying Again
      I'm going under
      Drowning in you
      I'm falling forever
      I've got to break through
      I'm going under
      (going under)
      Going under
      (drowning in you)
      I'm going under

      Today: Social 10, Science 10, Band 10/20/30, Drama 10 (x2). Nothing after school on Fridays.

      Wow, there's still people in here.....
      P/O, all.
      P.S.: Have you seen my website yet?

    • Another *YAWN* day...... sigh....

      14 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Hi all!

      First off, I want ALL of you to go to my website and take a look around, find out more about me. Sign my guestbook even! Have a blast, they'res some cool stuff there! Oh, and in case you don't want to click this insanely long link, here's the address! www.angelfire.com/ab7/bjtc/index.html . Moving right along....

      Just as the title says, it was a very uneventful day today. Donated 50 items and 10 dollars to the food bank drive at our school... I think that boosted us into first place in the school-wide race, at 16.5 items per student, at 29 people in my class. Ms. Walsh's class is coming up close, I think. It'll be a tight race.

      Went over to my friend Tanner's place today after school, with Shawna and Jackie, because I had no Improv today. The coach had to go to the hospital for some shots, and if she came back to lead a meeting, she'd be too stoned to try and controll 7 crazy teenagers.

      Anyway, all we did over there was play some DDR Extreme and, well, hang out. It's amazing how close a bunch of friends can get without actually going out with each other.

      NEW FEATURE IN BRENNAN'S JOURNAL! Posting a song everyday, because I have nothing better to do, and I want to occupy more space on my Journal.
      Today's song:
      Miracle of Miracles from The Fiddler on the Roof. My favourite song from the play, that my high school theater troupe put on last weekend.
      -------------------------
      Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles.
      God took a Daniel once again.
      Stood by his side and miracle of miracles,
      walked him through the lion's den.

      Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles.
      I was afraid that God would frown.
      But like He did so long ago, in Jericho,
      God just made a wall fall down.

      When Moses softened Pharoah's heart,
      that was a miracle.
      When God made the waters of the Red Sea part,
      that was a miracle too!

      But of all God's miracles, large and small,
      the most miraculous of them all,
      was that out of a worthless lump of clay,
      God has made a man today!

      Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles,
      God took a tailor by the hand.
      Turned him around and miracle of miracles,
      Led him to the Promised Land!

      When David slew Goliath, Yes!
      That was a miracle.
      When God gave us manna in the wilderness,
      that was a miracle too!

      But of all God's miracles, large and small,
      the most miraculous of them all,
      was the one that I thought would never be.
      God has given you to me!
      ------------------------
      Today: Social 10, Science 10, Band 10/20/30, Drama 10. No Improv.

      I'll talk to ya all later!

    • HEEEEEY! IT'S WENDSDAY!

      14 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Wow..... it's been a loooooong time since I've updated this thing....

      So, here's what I got for today...
      Yesterday, there was this Music Association concert. I'm in the Choir and the "Senior Wind Enseble." (Senior Band)
      I had this cold last weekend..... since then, everything has cleared up... everthing except my sore throat, which, after the rest of the cold left, can be called Laryngitis (I lost my voice).
      That didn't affect my Euphonium/Baritone playing in the band. Unfortunately, my voice went to crap. I went onstage, and I needed to LIP SYNC the songs. Which sucked because I'm the loudest person in our 18 person choir. I love singing, and I'm embarrased and mad that I did that........ I would have rather not been on the stage at all. So the choir thing went to pot.
      Otherwise, we "sang":
      Silent Night, Silent World (A 'remix' of the traditional Christmas carol, except to the tune of some random Largo symphony.)
      Tell It On The Mountain (A Jazzed up version of the traditional Christmas carol)
      The Snow Begins to Fall (A bad karma song indeed. Ever since we started rehearsing this song, we've had heavy snowfalls EVERY NIGHT! The bad part? We're singing it for the music festival, that's in MARCH!........... cool song, though)

      In the Band's set, we played:
      The B flat minor scale as a 5 part round (MINOR SCALES SOUND SO COOL IN ROUNDS, BECAUSE THEY'RE SO EVIL!)
      Creed (Our daily warm up song. Nice and cheerful.)
      Pocahontas Meledy (Just Around the Riverbend, Savages, Mine Mine Mine, ummmmmmmmm..... I know there's more. (note on Savages : MUTED TRUMPETS ARE SO COOL!))
      Into The Storm (by Robert W. Smith, my favorite composer.... if you're playing a song by Smith, then you know you're in for an awesome ride)
      Christmas Rock (Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree + Jingle Bell Rock)
      Sleigh Ride (Featuring our 68 year old artheritic diabetic Drama teacher cracking the whip)
      Hark! The Herald Angel Sings (Featuring the Superintendant of Public Schools conducting)

      Today wasn't very interesting. Social Studies 10, Science 10 (Double), Band 10/20/30, Drama 10, Choir 10/20/30

      P/O, Rooster dudes! (& dudettes)

      One big happy brass family....
      For those of you who dont know, the following instruments are in the brass family:

      French Horn
      Trumpet
      Cornet

      I'll start things off with a quick question... I play Baritone/Euphonium, and I'm having problems with my spit valve (which, unfortunately, sits over my crotch), and it's leaking every so often...
      We sent the instrument with the bad spit valve to be repaired, and I'm using another one while I wait.... which happens to be leaking as well. Does anyone know of any quick-fixes for my spit valves so I don't have to go around school looking like I've pissed my pants?
