I drank two and a half Smirnoff Ice’s and managed to pass a new milestone: throwing up when inebriated. Check.
Starting weight: 162 pounds (December)
Current weight: 127 pounds (August)
Goal weight: 118 pounds
After realizing that I’ve really let myself go during college, I decided to finally get my life together and start eating less (and healthy) and exercising more. Ironically, the reason why I wanted to lose weight was because I couldn’t fit into any of my cute clothes and now I’ve lost so much weight that now most of them are baggy. The heaviest I have weighed is 162 pounds during December but didn’t take a photo then. But overall, I’ve lost a total of 35 pounds and hope to lose my last ten pounds so that you can see my abs. My original goal before the start of the school year was to weigh 137 pounds and I’ve definitely surpassed that goal by 10 pounds. I’m feeling excited and definitely a lot better about life!
I hate some of the people in this music department so much that this past week I’ve been ready to shove my middle finger down at least five different throats. I understand we’re stereotypically supposed to be quirky and different from other majors, but that doesn’t mean you have to behave in such a ridiculous matter that I’m embarrassed to stand next to you in public gatherings. No. Shut up and sit down. Socialize on your own time and not in a setting where people need to get things done. Some of the people my age need to understand that it’s a competitive world out there and being “quirky” to the point of not accomplishing things for 15-20 minutes could make a helluva difference if you spent that time in a practice room. I’m not saying I’m guilt-free, but the amount of time some people spend pulling off crazy antics or behaving in such a shitty disposition…it’s all in bad taste. I’m just stressed out over how my standards could actually be crumbling beneath me because others in this department are lowering them for themselves and others.
nights like tonight remind me why i’m with you
Me: I've only had this piece since Tuesday, I don't suck.
Me: I suck. Maybe I wouldn't suck if I didn't miss that day of practice back in 2007.
Me: *nails passage* WATCH OUT HOROWITZ
Me: I could play this two days ago. Why can't I play it now?
Me: Maybe I should take off my ring.
Me: I CAN PLAY AGAIN!
Me: *messes up* Nope it's just me I'm bound to be a failed musician I will never have enough money for an apartment of my own let alone a family.
Me: *succeeds at passage* I can do this!
Me: *messes up* No I can't...
So my school is fighting back against this principal
August 14- Principal Rich Thomas, in a senior class meeting about new rules and policies, when explaining the new phone policy, said “I don’t care if your Aunt is laying on her deathbed, you aren’t getting your cell phone back if we take it.”
Made a male student change out of his tank top in front of the school in front of him and at least 50 students into a shirt that followed the new dress code.
August 15-on- Constantly scans hallways, walkie talkie in hand, searching for students to either A. Give tardies to or B. Send to the In-School-Suspension room (ISS).
August 19- Pulled approximately 50+ female students from classrooms to be sent home over wearing gym/running shorts, made the girls who weren’t old enough to drive, and who’s parents couldn’t bring them clothes sit in ISS the rest of the day, even though this was many of their first EVER offenses.
August 20- Sent Mariah Adams home for wearing the outfit included in the picture attached.
Side notes: Was fired from Scott County High School for discrimination of the LGBTQ community members of the school.
Is forcing all students to wear lanyards with IDs to get into school.
Gives ISS after 4 total tardies in one semester, giving us 0.007% success rate in not going to ISS. With a total of 150 tardies within the first three days of school because of new, non-relenting policy.
Has expanded ISS room from capacity of 15 to capacity of 40 students with knowledge of the fact that he would be sending multiple student there for menial reasons every day.
And he also was fired before from another local school. LGBTQ Nation sent him a letter and sued the school: http://www.lgbtqnation.com/assets/2013/02/021413_Scott-County-Prom-Letter.pdf
The local news network has gotten word if the large amounts of chaos in the school and the nauseating dictatorship he’s made of our school.
We’re located in Perryville, MO. Literally and hour and half away from Ferguson.
Signal boost this, it’s important
Why is Missouri getting so shitty all of a sudden.
An Orchestra Keyboardist’s Bag O’Tricks
I know it’s a lot of text crammed in there… >_<
Playing in an orchestra can be intimidating for a solo instrument like the piano! But there are so many little things you could do to get different sounds. These 10 slides only covers the more common ones. If I were to go into the specific and detailed stuff, it will never end.
Please note that this is solely for piano as PART OF THE ORCHESTRA rather than a solo instrument as in a concerto.
