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.  🙂 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!!! 😉 Should be pretty cool when it’s finished!! 🙂

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!!


So i better get back to editing my book. Like i said, i’m almost done. 😉

Thank you all for reading my blog.


Happy Mothers Day Mom!!!! 🙂

It’s You And Me.

Yeah i know i haven’t written a good post lately. So i apologize. I’ve just been busy i guess. I’ve been having a good time though. Spending time with my friends at school, having fun in acadec. Loving life and music.

I sat first chair in symphony rehearsal last night and it was terrifying. I knew my music it’s just the fact that i got lost so missed my solo (which i also knew very well) and it made me sound like i hadn’t practiced my music ever. So yeah. But oh well. I still enjoy practice. I’ll just try even harder next week.  And be sure and practice a ton between now and then.

It is so freezing outside. I can’t see the beautiful blue sky. But it’ll all be okay. Today at school was really good. Like really really good. I gave my student council election speech ( i really hope i win ) and talked to some people that i really enjoy being around, and had fun in acadec. And finished the Grapes of Wrath (which is a very good book in my opinion, there is a lot of hidden symbolism, it’s intriguing. ) I’m just patiently waiting for them to post the outlines for the acadec curriculum next year so i know what songs they picked. I have a general idea which ones they’ll pick but i want to know for sure. So i’m waiting for that, like i said patiently.

I lost my iPod cord and it’s rather frustrating. I  need that cord, but oh well i guess i’ll find it in time.

I have my iPod on shuffle and am listening to every song on it gradually. Right now it’s on You And Me by Lifehouse. And before that it was on I Have Been Blessed by Martina McBride. Both amazing songs by amazing artists.

So yeah. I don’t have much more to say except that school is really going great and i’m really finding myself not being nearly as shy as i used to be, so that is just awesome! I don’t wan’t the school year to end. I don’t want to have to miss everyone that i go to school with every day! But oh well. It’s what, two or three months and then schools back in or something. Idk. I’ll live. Lol.

So yeah. I love my life.

I hope you love yours. 😉

Have a good night everyone.

Tell Me Why.

Well things are starting to make sense to me again today. Haha and most of it is because of the lovely Taylor Swift. I love her music. And it’s just making everything make sense for me today 😉 Thanks Taylor.

So this morning i ordered my new viola!!!! I can’t wait to get it. (It’s actually going to be a pre-owned one in as-new condition but i don’t care) It’s going to be amazing. I ordered it from . They have really friendly service and are just a great company and depending on how this viola sounds (i’m sure it will be awesome) i’ll suggest it to even more people then i am right now (honestly not many people read this blog a day; only about 6 or 7 on a daily basis).  Who knows when i get it i might even post pictures 🙂

Speaking of pictures.  They posted pictures from our Music Is… concert in the White Mountain Independent yesterday. Well i guess i can’t say pictures because it was only one picture. I’m just glad to see that the symphony is on the front page 🙂

This is Maestro Theresa Bailey, the conducter of the White Mountain Symphony Orchestra.  I have such a good time in symphony that i’m not even almost dissapointed that they did not put a picture of the rest of the symphony in the paper. Just the fact that i’m in such a recognizable group up here in these lovely white mountains is just amazing to me. Like i said in a previous post. I love the feeling of being involved in something bigger than myself.  🙂  And the fact that it is one of these Music Is… concerts that inspired me to be a musician in the first place makes it even more worth it. Maybe i can do what the symphony did to me when i was younger to some other little kid. Inspire them to play music. Lead them into something that can be so much bigger then themselves. Music is such a great thing!!! I really don’t know what i would do without it. It heals wounds, it ties people together, it inspires people.   Or at least it has done all those things for me.

I want to write another book.

This time a more, contemporary, young adult novel. I think i’ll start writing it soon too. I miss writing and there is no way i can wait till NaNoWriMo in November to start writing again.  I’ll start tonight 🙂

Maybe i’ll be famous for this novel.

The first one sure didn’t get my very far.

But this one.

I think i have a chance with this one. I have this idea in my head that could turn into something great. . Did i mention that i am going to hand write it so i don’t have to spend hours upon hours on the computer typing.  And then i can write my story wherever i want to. 😉 It’s a plan. I will do it. I promise you all. In fact i already have the first sentance written down.

Now for your thing to think about.

I have a theory.

Some of us are like ants.

Yes ants! The creepy little crawly bugs that are totally disgusting and seem to be everywhere during the summer time.

Some of us are like ants because, when we want to do something, if something or someone gets in our way, we don’t just give up and turn around. We keep moving forward. We find a way around our obstacle, and make it where we want to go because we really want to be there.

I’m telling you, some of us are like ants!!

But are you like an ant?

Do you have a good sense of indurance and determination?

So i now i have another theory. 

The people that are like ants are the people that know exactly where they want to go in life. What job they want to do. Where they want to be. How much money they want to have. Where they want to live. Whether or not they want kids. People that are like ants know all of those things. They know where they want to go so they try there hardest to try and get there. 

Not all of us know where we want to go in life.

But what about you?

Do you know where you want to go in life?

Are you like an ant?

Just think about that. Goodnight world.

I Think I’m Fallin For You.

🙂 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.  I just love being around them. I have never smiled so much in my life. I actually feel like i belong.  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 🙂 Goodness why did i do that?! Oh well. I’ll leave the classical stuff on there cause i love classical music,  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!!! 🙂

Here is 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 from 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 😉 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.  There are so many people in symphony, and they are all my family, my musical family.  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 🙂

Goodnight everybody! ! !

Just Keep Swimming

Well I have to leave to go to school in approximately 20 minutes or so. I am just gonna blog cause I am already ready for school and have nothing better to do. Well first of all I have an orchestra concert tonight with the high school orchestra, and then tomorrow night I have an orchestra concert with the White Mountain Symphony Orchestra. Both concerts are going to be AWESOME!!!! Have I mentioned NaNoWriMo yet? I do believe I have and let me just make an add on to that. NOVEMBER IS GOING TO BE AWESOMEx10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to write my novel and our instructor told us to tell people enthusiastically about it so here I am telling the WHOLE WORLD!!! Like the whole world actually reads it anyways. I’m pretty sure it’s just a few select people that only read it every now and then cause my numbers are up and down and up and down and all over the place there is no regularity at all. SOOOOO if you read this blog and enjoy seeing what I’m up to and what my views on things are then by all means direct your friends to my site!!! Please, really I didn’t mean the exclamation points I just got EXCITED. But please recomend this site to your friends, I only get maybe 2 or 3 views a day and I’d love it if that number were larger.

Well hey there Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down what do you gotta do? Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming.

 Au Revior everyone!!
