Amazing!

So today has been pretty good. Finished cleaning my disaster of a room. Got some good practice in on the viola. ย Now i’m just watching the moths all swarming on the outside of the window trying to get in. That and listening to my best friend Emily’s AWESOME song! I just love it.

The link to the vid on youtube is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNUBr_WQq7E&feature=player_embedded#!

I can’t help but listen to it over and over again. ๐Ÿ™‚ It may only have 2 views on youtube right now but that doesn’t make it any less AMAZING! I don’t have much else to say except that I CAN’T WAIT TILL THE WMSO CONCERT SATURDAY!!!!! IT’S GOING TO BE SO FUN!!!!!!!! And i’ve sold almost all of my tickets that i was given to sell! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Which in itself is totally fascinating. ย I’ve sold about 65$ worth of tickets as of right now. Which is very cool.

So i found my old book of poetry i wrote in my, um not so happy phase, and oh my goodness most of them are so depressing. But i will keep them. Something to look back on, and there’s 78 of them. No way i’m going to through them out.

It’s amazing what you find when you actually clean your room!

And then there’s the fact that i’m greatly anticipating breakfast tomorrow morning, because i’m making homemade waffles and strawberry syrup. Yum should be super good. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can’t wait.

Well i’m getting rather tired, so i think i’ll go read a book and get ready for bed. So have a good night everyone!! And go eat a Symphony Bar. They fix everything. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lol. Good ole white mountain symphony jokes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Goodnight.

11 Is My Lucky Number.

So 11 right. You may be asking yourselves. Why 11? Well your questions will soon be answered. 11 is the number of WMSO concerts I’ve been in so far! And they have all been great! I love playing in the WMSO. I think it’s a great experience to have at my age. I’m 16, i’m still in high school, and i’m in a symphony orchestra. I just think that’s awesome! Maybe you don’t find it quite as awesome as i do, but still. ย ๐Ÿ™‚ Doesn’t matter.

I hate allergies. They are bugging me so bad right now that i want to go crazy! I just hate allergies, they flat out suck. But oh well, life will go on i am sure.

I am in the process of RE editing my book, and i’m almost done!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Should be pretty cool when it’s finished!! ๐Ÿ™‚

So yeah pretty much i love my life, and hate the wind.

Love music, and hate allergies.

Love writing, and hate editing.

Love school, and am annoyed with most of the people in it.

Love blogging, and hate how my views per day for the past week has dropped to zero!!

Lol.

So i better get back to editing my book. Like i said, i’m almost done. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you all for reading my blog.

and

Happy Mothers Day Mom!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

EMILY YOUR FACE IS BACK!!!!!! :)

So last night symphony was amazing. I had so much fun. I just love being there it just makes my whole day worth it. And i got to sit first chair again :). That is always so fun, and on top of that we got new music!!! I love getting new music it’s so much fun to play something absolutely new to me. WE HAVE FOUR VIOLAS NOW!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ IT’S AMAZING. I’M SO GLAD TO HAVE MY BEST FRIEND BACK IN THE VIOLA SECTION WITH ME!!!! And Ms Bailey was definatly happy to have her back as well!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes i know what i’ve been saying so far is super happy, but i have to say what i am going to say next.

The symphony is in a real bad possition, we don’t have much money and we are in a real tight spot. We truthfully don’t haveย barelyย anyย money in the bank. Just like everywhere else in the state, we are in trouble. So please, i’m trying to get the word about the symphony out there as much as i can. I am even adding a new page to my blog purely about the symphony, and how to give donations and buy tickets. Please everyone we need all the help we can get.ย  Ifย  you want more information about the symphony and how to donate and/or buy tickets just visit the symphony page on my blog, and i’ll have all of the information you need there. But if you have more questions just email me atย  jojolindseytohelpthesymphony@gmail.com. Any of your ideas and help will be appreciated.

And after that grim paragraph i feel subjected to cheer you up a bit!!

I’m sure in your life you have heard at least one viola joke. You know the mean ones that aren’t even that funny, mostly saying that violas are never in tune and aren’t good for anything.

I have read plenty of them in my time.

And right now is THE TIME WHEN I COULD GET REVENGE AND POST SOME REALLY GOOD VIOLIN JOKES!!!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut i’m not that mean, and i know some really great people that play the violin.

And blonde jokes.
Nawwwwww those aren’t for me.

All in all.

I’m not a joke telling person!!!!!!!!

But i guess you got to c sharp or you’ll b flat. ๐Ÿ™‚
(All the people laugh and you hear the drum set do there thing)

Have a good afternoon everyone ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Think I’m Fallin For You.

๐Ÿ™‚ So today has been excellent and frustrating at the same time. I love being around the people i am around all day. They make me smile and they just make my day. Just being around them in general makes me happy.ย  I just love being around them. I have never smiled so much in my life. I actually feel like i belong.ย  And trust me it is a good feeling.

On other topics.

So i went off on a random tangent and deleted most of the popular music off of my iPod and put all of my favorite classical music on it, and now i wish i wouldn’t of done that. So i’ll probably put it back on there after i’m done here ๐Ÿ™‚ Goodness why did i do that?! Oh well. I’ll leave the classical stuff on there cause i love classical music,ย  but i will try and put most of my contemporary music back on there cause i really miss it ;). Oh well music is music. And i love all of it.

I can’t wait till symphony practice thursday because we get our new music :)!!!!!!! And this concert is going to be a lot easier then the last concert. This will be our local composers concert. I hope that sometime in either the near or distant future that i will write a piece for symphony orchestra and that the symphony would play it. That would just be amazing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here isย a pic of the symphony at our concert on March 6th. It was an amazing concert. No i am not in this picture. They always seem to leave me out ;). Oh well. Tomorrow the White Mountain Independent will hopefully be posting pictures from our Music Is… concert so i’ll try and put them up once i find them :).

Have a good nigth everybody.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Well i just got back fromย a WMSO concert and it went amazing. I just absolutely can’t wait for the Music Is… concert on Thursday. It’s going to be amazing. I just love playing for all of the little kids, AND i get to sit first chair!!!! I guess i can mark that off my bucket list ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m so excited. I just love playing, and Maestro Bailey just makes it all worth it. When you’re done playing a song and you look at her and she’s smiling, you know that you did well. And that is a feeling that i just can’t seem to describe. It’s a feeling of accomplishment and something that is not replicated by anything else. I love symphony, and i love feeling like i’m involved in something bigger than myself.ย  There are so many people in symphony, and they are all my family, my musical family.ย  We all work together every Thursday night and every concert. We all work together as a whole, to create music. Something that is universal. And something that is amazing. Without music i don’t know what my life would be. I just wish that there were two of me so that i could be playing my viola and watching the performance at the same time. That would be amazing.

Music is a part of me.

I swear music notes run through my blood.

When i’m playing everything just seems to fit together. Especially when i’m playing surrounded by friends and other people who love music, and performing. When i’m surrounded by such talent, that it makes me want to play music for the rest of my life. And i am going to. Nothing will stop me from playing my music, EVER! I’m going to make it my life, and no one will ever change my mind about that. Music make my life make sense. When i was younger i could only imagine playing in the White Mountain Symphony Orchestra. And now i’m a vital member. It’s just amazing. And when i graduate high school i will hate to leave it. I’m just glad that, that won’t be soon. I still have all of this year and the next two years. And that’s good, because i’m not ready to leave.

I really love music.

It is the most amazing thing in the whole wide world.

It connects all of us.

I’ll never forget the memories i’ve made in the WMSO.

So wish me luck.

‘Cause i’ll be doing this for the rest of my life ๐Ÿ™‚

Goodnight everybody! ! !

Symphony Tonight

Well symphony practice tonight was awesome. I am so excited for the concert on December 11th and 12th. It’s going to be great!! If anyone wants to come just comment on here and I will send you info on getting tickets. The White Mountain Symphony Orchestra is just amazing this year, and this concert is going to be great! If you want to come though you need to get your tickets a.s.a.p. because it’s reserved seating this time so if you want your seats together with your family you have to get you seats soon.ย  Ahhhhh I’m so excited this is going to be great! Well on other news I did a very kind dead after symphony practice tonight. So the story goes like this. We are standing in the lobby of NPC waiting for our ride to get there when this girl in a wheel chair asks me if I could help her with by putting her wheel chair in the back of her truck after she gets in. I of course said yes (how can you say no and why would you say no in the first place) and walked out to her truck with her, while she is excitingly talking about the symphony and how she can’t wait for the Christmas concert. Then she gets in the truck and I put her wheel chair in the back of her truck just like she asked, and we tell each other to have a good night. She was the friendliest lady I believe I have ever had the opportunity to meet, and I will gladly say I am proud of myself for helping her. It made me feel good inside. Then it made me think. If everyday we helped someone who needed help (holding the door out for someone doesn’t count for we should do that anyways) then all of us would all around be happier people. If someone drops some papers in the hallway by all means help them pick them up. It’s not that hard and after you do it, trust me you’ll feel good about it. Helping people is an amazing feeling and you can not replicate it. . . Well on other hands I need to re-string my viola the strings are worn out and need to be replaced. I get to start writing my novel in like OMW (oh my word) 2 days or something like that.ย  So really really really soon. After I start that I might not be able to post much but I will try. It is super cold outside right now. Like seriously 24 degrees. Crazy it isn’t even Halloween yet.ย  Well may all of the people out there that are sick get well soon, and my everybody have a good Friday tomorrow!!!!!!! Au revoir and remember, HELP SOMEONE!!!
