My Hartt application has been submitted. I applied for college. :)
Church, Lesson, Quintet, and GHYWE…. Haven’t been home for more than half an hour since 10:30 this morning. Wooo. English essay, Calc HW, Hartt Application. Wooo. My life is so exciting.
I think I’m ready…. Today’s two hour lesson (yikes) will either confirm or deny. Stress level is about to go up………
One week left.
Music Theory… ready Composition Interview… 1 done, 1 almost done, 1 in progress Audition… almost ready.
Dunkin Donuts gift card, Subway gift card, multiple tins of brownies, cookies, and the sweetest card ever from my parents….. Something from Ellie is getting sent tomorrow…. Math department dressed up with a Shrek thing, English was clowns, Social Studies was pirates….. Today has been pretty awesome :) Now I just have to find time to have enough of a social life to see an R-Rated...
stop to think.: this is for you. →
tehsaxplayer: VINNY LAMONICA THIS IS FOR YOU! “Musician” Long tones Whole notes Resonate away Secrets Memories Compositions Music Fill my brain Gasping breaths Low A Brass and woodwind Lower register Words of our journey Spoken through bells Friendship’s invisible shield Confidence trusted with you Best… AWWWW :) I love Kate so much.
As we all apply for college,
I am constantly relieved that I know what I want to do with my life. I am relieved that I have always had this passion, and always had teachers who pushed me farther. If I didn’t…. I’d be like so many people, who don’t even know what they want in life, and all they know is that they need a 4.0 to find out. I love music, and I am so ready to spend the rest of my life...
I am sixteen, going on seventeen.
Friday :) And Thursday is International Hug A Band Kid Day, aka my excuse to hug everybody.
WOW today was tough musically...
In band, we recorded for Disney, and we did the Holst aka massive Vinny solo, which was REALLY stressful, and then for Men’s Chorus, Joe can’t sing so it was like…okay, time for Le Miz… aka MORE Vinny solo, except in a register that I can’t sing in. Ho lee crap.
KATIE JOHNSON, YOU ARE GOING TO DOUBLE REED DAY...
I am going to go as an oboist and Kat and I are going to drag you with us, and we will have lots of fun. Sound good? Good. :) P.S. I love you.
carefreehighway: deathbyfruitsnacks: I felt the need to say that it puts a huge smile on my face when I see that you like my stuff. :) Oh, just like that.

I Think I Can Handle This.
November 6: UNH (A School) November 25: BU (B School) December 4: UMass (C School) December 11: Hartt (A School) January 4: Central (C School) January 29: Ithaca (B School) Starting off strong in less than two weeks….. great. Out of these schools, I like UNH and Hartt. BU…. I hate cities. Ithaca…. my mom will only let me go that far away if nobody else accepts me. ...
I love when my quintet coach can't go to...
Because naturally, everybody turns and stares at me. I am then stuck picking what we work on, figuring out what’s wrong, fixing it, and then deciding what we do next. Literally, EVERY time we finished a piece or movement, everybody turned and looked at me. Pressure at its best. :P

UNH = First Choice College
All of that stress was unnecessary- Hartt will not take me for Education and Composition. UNH just keeps looking better and better, and Hartt just keeps looking worse and worse.
So my Hartt application is due two weeks earlier...
Yeah, Naviance lied. (Naviance is the stupid program EO makes us use for college crap) Now, I have a week and a few days left to write this thing. If I have to submit scores with it….. then I am SCREWED. Time to get cranking on my scores. Oh, and only two weeks and one day until my UNH audition. WOOHOOOOO Ohheylook, I just checked. WEEK AND A HALF TO WRITE TWO MORE PIECES.
I love Tumblr.
Such a simple thing, and yet it makes us so happy. There was so much purple today :)
Are YOU wearing purple tomorrow? You should.
In case you didn’t know, it’s for all the gay harassment stuff that’s been going on lately. Yeah. You should all reblog this, and spread the last-minute word.
I LOVE SINUS INFECTIONS!
They are SO much fun!!!!! And I loveee the nasal spray and I loveee the massive pills and I loveee having to catch up on school work…. not.
Quintet makes me love bassoon so much.
Such a fun instrument to play…… :) I wish I did more with it.
I love when people talk about me and a friend...
And it was at Relay For Life. That’s just sad.

KELSEY DUTTA JUST COMPLETED MY LIFE.
I just ordered The Willson Suite by Robert W. Smith. She found a copy. It’s out of print, and it’s my dream piece. HOLY FUCKING CRAP THIS IS EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted...
I loveeeeee Fnugg. And I got to hear it LIVE by Oystein Baadsvik. He is SOOOO good at tuba, it’s ridiculous. If you have never heard Fnugg, look it up. Trust me.
I need a theme to compose about.
I want to write a multiple-movement piece for a large ensemble, whether it be a band or orchestra. However, it’s hard to write multiple movements without a guiding theme… an example being a storm…. you have powerful movements, the calm in the center, and then it gets to its worst…. The storm theme is overdone, so I’m looking for a new idea…. all ideas are very...
Tumblr is blocked at school.
I got internet on my iPod, and got really excited….. and then I couldn’t open Tumblr. Not okay. Also, my school’s Tri-M (music department honor society) needs to learn that a “quarterly Tri-M event” is not going to a French dinner and performing. Buttttttt that’s what happens when all four officers are in French.

Jazz Band always proves to be interesting.....
You are creeeeeeeeppppppyyyyyyyyyyyyyy sometimes…. haha
I loved this weekend, but I am sooooo not ready to get up at 5:15 again….. ewwwww. College > High School
Best weekend EVERRRRRR
I love UNH more and more every time I come here. :) Hartt has some serious competition…… Well, I’m going wherever the money is, so I guess I won’t have to make the decision anyways. And Ellie’s friends are all nice and they feed me and help me not get lost and take me to silly classes like Making Babies, which I recommend to ANYBODY who goes to UNH, because that...
Uno mas dia de Nuevo Hampshire. :)
I love four day weekends.
I love UNHHHHHH
Off to lunch soon, then Ear Training and Jazz Band and Marching and then the concert and then tomorrow is all the Euph stuff….. so much fun! And I ran into SYMS people… Kyle and Seth… yeah. Not that I ever talked to Kyle, but Seth said hi, even though we don’t talk… how nice of him to do that. I wish more people did that… people I hung out with and now...

You are so easily pleased.
I love music.
SO many wonderful things have been going on with my musical life. That seems to be the only aspect of my life that’s going well, but WHATEVER because music is my life. All of this college stuff, Hartt stuff, my lessons, EO stuff, Ashford…. ALL going so welllllllllllllllllllllll :)
