I'll think of a topic once I start typing. I just haven't posted one in a while, so I need to.
And sorry if I haven't commented on anyone's anything, I haven't been on much.
Well this summer's been kinda boring. Ish.
Went to my beach house for the first weekend and just kinda hung out with my cousins, celebrated my grandpa's birthday, my aunt's birthday, and father's day (all of which happen to be the same day). Tbh, it was pretty boring. My little cousin is obsessed with video games and complained about me not having any, and the cousin my age who came is slightly antisocial (my opposite, lol).
I think it's the 29th that I go to Italy. I can't wait. I should be studying some Italian my grandma sent me, but I'll save that for the plane ride. I'm probably the whitest Italian guy there is, lol.
My dad bought some $2 Food Lion lemonade. But it's really good. There's more sugar than lemon in it, which makes it yummy. (endrandom)
I still don't miss Byrd. I mean, it was really fun and all, but Godwin seems like it'll be so much... better. I'm still kinda pissed about how faggoty the administrators were this year in stealing all of our privileges throughout the year. It'll be weird next year having so much more freedom. And I doubt I can be trusted with that much freedom :P
Next year will interesting socially for me. I've made new friends here at Byrd, but then I'll be with my friends from Gayton, also. I've kept in touch with a lot of them, so it'll be interesting to see them again and see if some people I know now make friends with them.
My mom's a bitch. I mean, really. She's keeping me in the house as much as possible. I mean, she has to run out of excuses sometime. My hands hurt from practicing the piano while being stuck inside. I guess my piano teacher will be happy, as I learned a lot of Fur Elise, the first 2 pages of Toccata in D Minor, and finished a sonatina.
So yeah. That's all I can type before I fall asleep on my PC. G'night y'all.

"May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hands."
-Irish blessing, song we're singing Friday.
I really don't want to leave Byrd. I mean, this is only my second year here, so it really doesn't feel like I've been here that long. I've made new friends and had the opportunity to do so many new things here, that I don't want to leave it all. But I really don't want to stay either. The no-window environment with much varying temperatures from room to room gets a little frustrating after a while. I know it won't be that different next year, but I'll enjoy the change in scenery. Kara and Gabby will be going to Tucker, so I won't see them anymore, as I don't do much outside of school with them.
Godwin will be amazing, though. I mean, the choral program is amazing, and I can't wait to be in the men's ensemble (a group that's just being put together this coming year.) The drama program is amazing, too, and I really want to do some play or musical next year. I'm pretty sure I'm not a good enough actor to make it, but I guess I'll find out.
We'll have so much more freedom. Unlike this year, where we gradually lost our privelages throughout the school year, for reasons that were beyond our control. I'm sick of being victim to the slave-like treatment we recieve at Byrd. It's like we're not humans, just a herd of cattle that they try to control.
But the decision has been made for me. I'm leaving Byrd and entering Godwin next year, whether I like it or not. So, I'm going to try to make the best of it.

Just finished a sonatina at my lesson today, I'm pumped to play all 4 pieces at my next recital.
I'm freaking scared of learning the piece she gave me, you'll definitely recognize it when you hear it:
It's not all that hard, but it's got a reputation to look difficult. But I'll trudge my way through it. I got two weeks to learn it.
