The end of the end

My humble minions, I fear that our relationship has come to an end. This chapter of my life is now closed. This ship has sailed. The fat lady has sung. Elvis has left the building. Okay, okay, enough with the madness. But, that’s kind of how I feel about everything. It still hasn’t sunk in...

From dancing to essays

Woah, I feel like I just stepped out of a whirlwind — this week has been absolutely insane. But, all in all, not too shabby. First off, let me talk about prom. Prom was fantastically fantastic. My mom was nice enough to get me the perfect dress (purple and black ballgown, fyi), let me get my nails ...

This teacher is a rare gem; a person able to inspire students about the seemingly uninspiring- this attribute alone is what transforms a humdrum educator into an amazing one. This teacher is funny — so funny that the ideas being taught are actually accessible for comprehension. Not only that, but th...

The beginning of the end

So, in case you didn’t know, prom is this weekend. Yeah, that’s right; one of the most infamous events of my high school career is just around the corner. The idea of my senior prom is still a little alarming to me. I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m not excited or anything. In fact, ...

On Wednesday, both the wind ensemble and symphonic band went to Wentzville Holt High School for their competition.

Conflicting emotions

So, I think it’s safe to say that if you’re a faithful reader of my blog you know about my current love life. You know that there is a guy and blah blah blah romance yada yada yada. What you don’t know though, is the stress that I think it’s starting to put on my friendship. You see, I have a be...

I am woman, hear me roar

April 18, 2012

Guys, I have some huge news for you; I am officially a woman. That’s right folks. I am now 18 years old. Old enough to vote, buy cigarettes, lottery tickets, adult movies and old enough to go to big girl jail. To be completely honest, I still find it all a little nuts. I mean, I just feel like I...

You know that ooey-gooey feeling you have when you like someone and you realize that they like you back — you feel like you have been transported back to the sixth grade? That’s how my Easter break went. You see, I had mentioned quite a few blogs back that I kind-of, sort-of, maybe had begun to ...

Hell week, here I come

April 3, 2012

So, it’s only Monday and I’m already exhausted. This week is going to be my own personal hell week, and to say that I’m dreading it is an understatement. You see, the week is already off to a bad start considering that I got maybe three hours of sleep last night. I feel like a walking zombie - ...

The students who performed well would be the lucky ones deemed qualified for state competition. The district competition serves as a gathering place for band members with talent; e...

Luke warm welcome

Alas, spring break has come and gone. I never knew two weeks could be so long, yet so short. It was long in the sense that I am currently brain-dead. The extent of my brain inactivity is the equivalent of returning to school after summer vacation. Let’s just say, I misspelled my own name this morning. W...

Spring fever

March 8, 2012

Good golly, Miss Molly, spring break is on the horizon. Thank you baby Jesus, because I feel like a zombie. I cannot verbally express how excited I am to be able to sleep in. To be able to bum around in my pajamas. To be able to hang out with my friends. The feeling I have as this week fades away is...
