Hello all!

I got a new LiveJournal...

http://www.livejournal.com/users/bassoon_crazy/

but it's basically for my random stupid crap on band.. here's an example...

Hehehe, it's completely true.

I love band so much I'm going to have it as two class slots in my senior year (in other words the year after this upcoming one)... Yup, so basically I'll get to pick a second instrument! What will it be?

Bassoon or french horn...

you know this would be a really easy choice for me, but I don't know that bassoons can be played as second instruments... :(

I talked to Arlie about this and this should explain what I'm talking about for anyone that strangely cares enough to read this... xD

"In high school if we make a higher band of the three, then we get an oppurtunity to take another band class and learn an second instrument straight from learning the first note! Isn't that awesome? I just don't know again, that this is possible with bassoons...they're like really complicated."

Why my obessession for bassoon is clearly defined I've kind of set it off for the far future and not right now. My procastination skills aren't very good... so... What if I NEVER get a bassoon? O_O I'm sure I'll get to it...

but this is a very hard choice for me if bassoons are allowed for second instruments, because I need to know that I can play the bassoon, while on the other hand I never plan on buying a french horn... (I can rent one of the two a semester for $50) So this maybe my only chance with the french horn.

But my goals are kind of crazy.. buy a bassoon? master it? What if I get it and can't play it..what am I going to do then?

I love both instruments, but this is a very hard decision, I'll close in on a result when I find out if bassoons can be played as a second instrument.

If you read this I'm surprised... thanks for caring about my senseless babble of stupid crap. :D

Stuff...lol

Well, I'm dissapointed with what's going on at Mike's... One person leaves and I'm happy, but then another leaves. Why let someone else's actions control your own? There are other people there to like. When Jas left, did I leave? NO. and the forum is still really fun...

Anyways I have marching band in a few hours, I'm really tired...but..I'll live, I hope, lol.

Overall good day. :)

Pride (my marching band) practice was a lot better today. I was seriously considering quitting before I went today but I decided to wait a day and I did better. Not the best but better.

The only downside was I had to sit out because of my eye...it was bothering me, I'll be wearing a hat tomorrow. lol

and Evil Rocker Chick is gone!!! YAY!! well she's not gone, she's basically worse then me, I doubt she's gone, she's a lier. and exactly the kind of guitar player that I HATE. I'm glad she's gone...but she'll be back, meanwhile I'll enjoy it though. xD

Whatever it is holding me back it won't be anymore! I'm not going to let me be less then perfect...

I'm delving further into my love for classical music... It's so awesome! All of the instruments, it's so nice to have a variety of instruments playing at once. :D

Power to the classical musicians and lovers!

I suck...

It seems to me that in life I can not do anything right. Something is always holding me back, and I'm really tired of it. It makes me less then par on everything I do...

I'm sick of life, I'm sick of marching band, and I'm sick of whatever it is holding me back...

Day 1

Jul. 27th, 2005 | 08:32 pm
mood: tired tired

OMG...such a mess. That's what today was.

Well, I woke up at 7 am, and I had to leave and make it there by 8...I made it in late, lol. xD Embarassing. but then we went outside and marched for a while. I made a huge improvement there today, I think. I was really bad at the beginning of the day, but by the end of the marching part I was improved... :D It was nice outside, in the 60s and a breeze. Wow I couldn't have asked for a better temperature for today. but it wasn't a painless day. After marching we had lunch and such. I sat with my friends in this coved building area! So no one annoying could find us! Believe me there are some annoying people... After lunch we went inside and played our song memorized for the last 4 hours... but then we had to play it by ourselves in front of a director...that wasn't something I'd call good, because I was really nervous and didn't do my best, but he did complement me on the progress I've made this year so it's all good. Even though I know I can and will do much better.

Well that's today, basically. lol

A sad day...

mood: indescribable indescribable

I love mikeInside's forum, I love the internet. I don't know where I'd be without it...This last year I have become a more social person, even in real life. I have made tons of friends...

But I have now made a set goal...and being on the internet 24/7 isn't going to get me there. I know that, it's obvious, but it's a hard habit for me to break. If I ever want to play bassoon in a professional orchestra I know what I have to do...stop being lazy and become awesome on every instrument I own currently. Yes, that is trumpet, clarinet, guitar, and flute. It's a long road, and most of the focus has to go on clarinet...because that's my main instrument. But I heard flutes really help you play bassoons. Because they have the same embachoure? Yeah...So I have to learn how to play flute...

and then there's marching band, sucking up all of my spare time. My summer vacation is now over... Tomorrow it starts, from 8 am to 4 pm...I don't know how I'll live...but I will, I just have to practice tons and be up and moving a lot. Instead of sitting here on this computer...:(

Positive look on guitars?

I don't know, maybe I might like them.

My parents have got one, and they gave it too me. It's cool, I guess. I really wanted to play bassoon. but maybe guitar can help me in bass clef? I KNOW I have to know that before I play bassoon...

Like my new Layout? Hehe.

Stupid Arguement.

Jul. 23rd, 2005 | 02:40 pm

Ugh, it only got worse, but now it is locked. Thank you God!

All they wanted to do was change my opinion on rap! NO! you can't do that! I dislike rap and you can't make me think otherwise! So stop thinking! It's like saying your religion is the only religion, it's rediculous, other people think other things. I can't believe that topic. This one girl said that she could post whatever she wants, yet she tells me not to post in that topic. Is that not hypocritic? That topic...ugh... Thanks to them I dislike rap even more now.

and that one girl? Insulting bassoons...saying they suck not even being able to spell it. Well, I doubt she has ever heard one, it was all fake.

I'm sorry, to my family. That they want me to play guitar but I won't. They all love it, I DON'T! Does my opinion matter the least bit? My grandma said she'd buy me a guitar but not a bassoon. that's... I don't know. You can't make me play guitar! and you can't make me not get a bassoon. it's my life not yours! I'm not going to waste away my life playing an instrument I don't even like. BASSOON PLEASE.
