Hello,

man, talk about a crazy week. let's recap:

-well skool started last wednesday. my classes are relatively easy and lite. Only Music Theory AP and government are kinda challenging. other then that, my classes are good.

(first full week of skool)
monday: 7 classes + band practice till about 6:30. talk about a tiring monday x_x

tuesday: i had to skip 7th period tuesday to go to the dmv. i finally got my permit! =D so now i can start learning how to drive, and hopefully once it hits febuary, ill have my license. =]

wednesday: 7 classes and band booster meeting at 6. talked about alot of things for the band this year and met a few parents. got home at 8:30, did hw till 12 x_x

thursday: 7 full classes + afterskool sectional. after the sectional was the BLACK KEYS xD after the sectional, i went to chris's house to chill for a while, then headed off to the avalon at about 7 or so. met up with sammy, hilary, edgar, and mario. i must say it was an awesome show. we were freaken front and center! =D and they did all the songs i wanted to hear. so the show ended at about 11 and i got home at midnite x____x i still had hw so i worked till about 1:30-2 x______x note to anyone reading this: never go to a show on a weekday unless its the summer -_________-

friday: thank god. haha had class, then went to guitar center afterskool with dr. b to get new cymbals for the old drumset. afterwards, went with matt, teresa, and karen to matt's house to chill for a while. then went to UCLA with them to help matt's sister move stuff to her new dorm. went to this cool little pizza place in westwood, then moved stuff, and came home at about midnight. good bye matthew williams. good luck and have fun @ Poly =]

saturday: woke up at about 9 or so. went to johnny thompsons in the morning with shaun and mallory to get a new bass drum head for his drumset. little did we kno that it costs 53 fucking dollars for a damn head! >=O we left and went back to shaun's house, and used a different bass drum instead. after practicing for a while, we figured we'd go to guitar center to get a cheaper head. and we did haha. then went to mikie's to practice for a while, and went to gutar center....AGAIN -.-' haha came back, played a little more, watched a little tv and came home at about 12:30.

our demo is done! =D i must say i am quite satisfied with it =] haha if anyone wants a copy, talk to me.

overall, it was quite a busy week. i hope things ease up haha.

wut to look forward to:

-im moving in to my grandma's house in a week so my house can get completely remodeled.

-UCLA band day =D cant wait =]

-SAT's in october -____________- lets hope i get a better score then i did last time... i really need it.

hey everyone,

an update:

-had a full week of band camp last week. we worked our asses off practicing our fieldshow for 5 days. i guess the practice pays off. a few more new people came, which was great. we're working on a classical fieldshow this year, so i hope we pull off a good show. we did a hell of alot of marching practice for 5 days so that paid off quite alot. i just hope we can pull together before tri city and our parades.

-registration was tuesday. so me david and victor wang went during band camp. took fucking forever as usual -_- so my schedule as of now:

1. computer keyboarding o.O ???
2. contemporary themes (sutton)
3. government (chavez)
4. band (bartlett)
5. AP music theory (bartlett)
6. Alg. IIB (rapp)
7. Orchestra/Jazz Band (bartlett)

when i got my sample schedule, i was missing a first period. i originally wanted piano, but piano was 2nd period, so my counseler told me to come back when skool started to see if she could move me to piano. so she gave me computer keyboarding for now -__-

-friday was the last day of band camp. which was great, cuz i get to sleep in for a week and a half =P after band camp, a few of us headed over to pasadena's cheesecake factory for the birthday celebration of anita, susan, and manny =]we stuffed our faces with delicious food and awesome cheesecake =] happy birthday susan, anita, and manny =] hope u guys had a nice birthday dinner =]

wut to look forward to: so this coming week, im free....well kinda.... lol i still have SAT class BUT its only 2 days.

Hey everyone,

Recap:

-WE FINALLY RECORDED OUR DEMO! haha last sunday, we met up with chris's uncle and we recorded a 4 track demo. It turned out pretty well and it was alot of fun. I cant wait to see how it turns out after he mixes it. I realized how the recording environment is really different from the live environment. U get a totally different feel and its not the same vibe at all. I guess it's something to get use to.

-Went out of town for 3 days (monday to wednesday)and took a small trip to lake tahoe/reno. After a 10 hour drive, we finally got to reno and did this and that. It was pretty nice. Did alot of sight-seeing and i went jet-skiing in tahoe =]

-Thursday, did a little shopping for gifts with anita, then went to a farewell party for grace and a few of her friends.

-Today, went to see Talladega Nights with linda and june =] very funny =D

overall, it was a pretty nice week =]

wut to look forward to:
more band camp monday =]
damn...skool's starting soon =[ senior year x_______x

Hey!
well lets recap:

-busy as FUCK!! >< its like holy crap! ive never been hit with so much stress up the ass =I but its ok, things got better. Damn thinking about college 24/7.
Damn thinking about skoolwork.
Damn SAT work.

-its true, im a freaken senior now and everything's been slapping me in the face. Wut the hell am i gonna do after highskool? Wut if the Musician's Institute says i suck and rejects me? wut am i gonna do?? i kno it seems kinda lame i have my priorities set to one skool, but it would be a dream come true to get in.I've been doing alot of research and checkin out other skools. Nothing has beat MI's program. Its just everything i want out of music is in that skool. I just wanna send in my fucking application already and get it over with =[ i just hope i get better in time and i hope they like my audition tape.

-SAT work: SAT work has been up the ass the past few weeks. its funny, i only meet with this guy twice a week for 2 hours but the amount of work he gives me is insane! I've been up till two some nites. lets hope i score better then i did the last time...

-Band camp: well, something to look forward to.It was nice seeing everyone again. alumni, returning bandmembers, u make me happy =] so far so good. today was day two and a few more people came today. U freshman are so shy! xD hopefully they'll enjoy the program.

-We're remodeling our house! my mom told me two nights ago. i wish she told me sooner -.- i wouldnt have been so shocked. well i guess its good cuz we havent done anything to my house in like 10 years. we've just lived here and delt with our problems. So my dad's been on the phone every freaken night callin up contractors and all these people lookin for deals. The deal is, my stucco ceiling is gonna be gone =] new hardwood flooring =] demolishing the old and rebuilding 2 brand new bathrooms =] ripping my kitchen apart to build a brand new kitchen =] interior paint =] and my room is getting an extra window =] im excited! the slightly bad part of this story is......... the whole project is gonna take roughly 2 months....the earliest things can get started is early september..... so im most likely gonna live at my grandma's house by freaken ELAC o.o and the problem is i dont kno how to get to skool =[ my parents said it would be a huge hassle, so i gotta figure something out before skool starts. it is also quite possible that i will have absolutely NO INTERNET ACCESS FOR TWO FUCKING MONTHS!!! >=O I dont kno how hell im gonna survive. we'll see wut happens.

so wut to look forward to:
-Well its settled. Chris finally got a hold of his uncle and we can finally record our demo! so we're hoping to do so possibly next saturday. i cant wait =]

-more band camp =]

-im getting my permit some time next week =] cant wait to start driving already...

-i think i might be going on like a 3 day trip with my parents the week where we dont have band camp...

until next time..........

hey everyone,

the past 4-5 days, i've been in san francisco with the band on our spring trip. it was sooooo much fun. i had a great time.

so wut happened:

-thursday: left EARLY in the morning. literally slept for about 6 of the 8 hours on the bus x_x we first arrived at UC Berkeley for a clinic. got to meet the music director of berkeley. afterwards, we went to pier 39 for dinner, took a cable car ride around the city to get a taste of san francisco. afterwards we headed for our hotel, which was like an hour away from san francisco. the hotel was QUITE FANCY. each room was a freaken suite!

-friday: left in the morning for our clinic at Stanford. got to meet the director of Stanford's wind ensemble. afterwards, went to pier 39 for a jazz gig. super fun. i've always wanted to play on the street to get the feel of a street musician. it was great. after jazz, we explored the pier for the rest of the day, then had dinner at the pier, thus, heading back to the hotel.

-saturday: FESTIVAL the big day. got up early, went to foothill college for the festival. overall i thought it was pretty good. concert band, i've never felt so good playing our two pieces ever. it just felt so good. jazz band was alot of fun as well. percussion ensemble was awesome. after performing, went to lunch, then walked the golden gate bridge x_x damn it was cold there. i think im sick cuz of the stupid winds. afterwards we headed for the awards ceremony at Great America. we got silver in everything: concert band, jazz band, percussion ensemble. i was pretty happy considering the dramatic improvement from last year. afterwards, we headed back for the hotel.

-sunday: woke up at 5:30 x_______x we loaded the bus, ate and checked out of the hotel. we headed for pier 41 to embark on our tour of Alcatraz Island. interesting stuff. more then a prison if u kno wut i mean. after our tour we had lunch at the pier, went to buy some fancy chocolate, and left san francisco about 2:30. the ride home was ok, wish i got more sleep tho. watched remember the titans....finally -.- really good movie. got home at about 9. it felt good sleeping on my own bed after four days on the floor -.-

overall, it was probably one of the best trips i've been on. had alot of laughs and good times.

monday: super dead day, rained like a bastard. had rehearsal till 5:30

tuesday: same ol' same ol'

wednesday: meeting day=good day. i had alot of fun wednesday. we played an interesting coffeehouse on wednesday, hope someone recorded it cuz it was super funny. got out at 1 and took off to stuff my face with food. after eating, (no lie) i took a shopping cart to loc's house to pick up his guitar amp to use for rehearsal (u see the pain it is to not know how to DRIVE!?!?! >=O), cuz keppel's guitar amp is a guitar amp no more. arrived at skool at 3 for a 2 hour rehearsal (but it was a good rehearsal cuz it was fun music). came home and did hw till 11. the fundraiser stuff came that day and man, that chocolate is god. that same night, i stuffed my face with half a box. now i have to figure out some way to lose weight, cuz i think im gaining x______x ive been eating alot lately. gotta stop.

thursday: ok thursday i guess. regular day, had hot house till 6 then jazz till 8. fun music, tiring as hell tho x_x came home and did hw till midnight

friday: freeezingggg!!! shit! rehearsal got cancelled, so i am now home from this ridiculous weather. i have the worst headache known to man. a mixture of stress and the cold x____x
