If This is a Dream, Please Dont Wake Me Up!!!

I've been waiting for my chorus teacher to post who will get into concert choir for next year. If you didn't know what concert choir is, its basically a higher level chorus that you have to audition in front of the teacher to get in. You have to know solfedge ( do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do) you have to know rythem counting and thats hard to explain. You have to know how to count beats and know your notes and most of all you have to have a good singing voice. There are limited amount of people who can be in it. 7 people for each voice part and there are 4 voice parts but the mens parts are spilt so there are still only 7 men in the choir. only 2 or 3 people get in each year because senoirs are leaving and some people drop. This meant if I got in I would be 1 person chosen out of the 20 altos to get in. Thats a 5% chance.

This has been my dream since I got into highschool. I knew that this was around the time she would post. So today I asked her to sign my corse selection sheet and it said 'full chorus' and she signed it. So I said to myself "Ill just have to try for next year." Today, the same day she signed my sheet she posted the list. I didn't even bother to look at it until my friend Simone said " Congrats Heather'" and I was like " what are you talking about?" and she said I made it. I immediatly smiled and said " no i didnt, no i didnt" until my eyes met that list and it said Alto's ( voice part ) and I followed the names all the way down until I saw Heather Lord. I cried. I cried so hard because this is my dream this is what Ive wanted for two years. I did it. I went in to my chorus teachers office and HUGGED her. I said " G ( because her name is Mrs. Gibson and we all call her G for short) You tricked me" and she said " I wanted it to be a surprise. I didn't want to give it away" and she wipped the tear off the side of my cheek.

I called mom and I was crying and she thought it was something bad. But it wasnt. Shes proud of me. That itself is a good feeling.

Being in concert choir gives us so much more previlages. We get to go to disney world by raising money and singing in the park somewhere. We get to meet the governor and sing for him at special occasions( how do you spell that?). We can do many more festivals, like barbarshop ( which is March 15th if yall wanna come to it at my school, Im not really sure what times or what it cost, but family gets first dibs on tickets so let me know if you wanna come, its a saturday). Its amazing. Im so excited. Love and support thats all im askin for.

And...just for laughs


This is day one....

Thats my magnetic patch at an angle

This is my pink wall after we painted over the magnetic patch. Only really strong magnets hold lil flimsy ones wont hold very well.

This is my beautiful bed and patrick (scotts brother is laying on it and getting boy germs all over it)
Ill have more for you guys later.....


My computer is wicked gay and wont let me post pictures of my newly painted room! SOMEONE HELP!!!!!!

I got or should I say my mother got, a drivers ed packet today in the mail because I start in less then a month. Some things I think I will keep in the glove compartment because I think Ill have to reminded her of some of the things the packet says like, " Give them plenty of practice time" and " Be patient with them " and " Teenagers love praise and encouragement, give them plenty" and " Let them be responsible for their own decisions while behind the wheel" Stuff like that.

I also got my "out of class" drivers log so I can start getting my hours in now, If someone would just take me for goodness sake!!!! I NEED 20 HOURS OF AT HOME PRACTICE PEOPLE!!!! 16 hours total with my drivers ed teacher. Thats 36 hours which means thats a day and a half total!!! goodness gracious.

Thats the first!!!

let me first off tell you about my freshmen year so you dont get confused. Last year I was taking college english 9 like I was supposed to. Well I failed second semester and didnt get a half credit for it so this year I had to make up that half credit. That means this semester I was goning to have an advanced college english 10 and a college english 9.

So heres how my shedule was so I could make up that half credit

1st Semester

period 1= Chorus
period 2= advanced college english 10
period 3= P.E
period 4= French
period 5= Algebra 1
period 6= Advanced college U.S history
period 7= Science 9

So last year I didnt take science for some odd reason. That wasnt my decision! So this year I started taking science. Well I bombed that last semester so mom, my coucilor and I agreed to start fresh with science next year so I could make up my english credit from last year. I only need two years of science so ill basically be craming it in to my last two years of school! So this was my schedule for this semester.

period 1= chorus
period 2= advanced college english 10
period 3= study hall
period 4= french
period 5= Algebra 1
period 6= Advanced college U.S history
period 7= College English 9

So today I was sitting in my english 9 class and she was going through the homework and all of a sudden she looked at me and told me I needed to leave. So of course I asked her why 'cause I didnt do anything. She told me that this class was way to easy for me because Im way to smart. I was WHOA okay thats the first! Ive never heard of being kicked out of a class for being smart. Then she sent me to quidence to go into a higher level class. Which meant that my shedule would change once again so this is my shedule as of now

period 1= chorus
period 2= Advanced english 10
period 3= Advanced english 9
period 4= french
period 5= algevra 1
period 6= advanced vollege U.s history
period 7= NO CLASS FOR ME I GET TO GO HOME!!!!!!!

Yeah I get to go home at 1:10 now instead of 2:05. I know that it makes no sense why if Im that smart I couldnt have passed english last year and now Im getting moved up a level. Im not ashamed of failing last year because this year I am determined to do better. Last year just was not a good year for me. This year I am taking responsibilty for what I screwed up. On the plus side I get to go home early =]

So much to tell you ♥

I got my report card today and I have a total of 9.5 credits from my freshmen year and the first semester of my sophmore year! GO ME. I figure if I do well and pass all my classes for second semester I wil have a total of 11.5 credits. I cant wait until next year though because the shedule is changing. We will have four or five classes a day and getting a full credit for each instead of just a half. We also will have diffent classes each semester so we can get up to 8 to 10 credits a year. I need 22 credits to graduate and I can graduate one semester early if I wanted If all goes well!

Also I just started reading a book called " The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" By Mark Haddon. Im reading it for my English class and I just started reading it on sunday and I finished it last night. She gave us untill february 15th to finish it. Its a book about a 15 year old boy named Christopher Boone who has Asberger symdrom which if you didnt know its one of the seven types of autism. It starts out about a dog that had died and he tries to find out who killed the dog and then it turns into something so much more than that. During most of the book I forgot I was reading about a teenager. It felt like I was reading about a 7 or 8 year old. If you didnt know, children or adults with autish usually are very smart however, they have issues with the world like christopher doesnt like his food touching on the same plate, he doesnt like to be touched, he doestn like certain colors, he doesnt like loud noises or a lot of change etc etc. The list could go on and on and thats what makes the book so interesting. Just seeing how he is able to cope with the world around him while he trys to do things his way. Its hard to explain but its deffinatly a book I recommend.

Last night I also went to lowes to get paint for my room! Im painting it tulip yellow and Magdas pink. Its a really pretty color pink. Two walls paralell to eachother are going to be pink and the other two walls paralell to eachother are going to be yellow. Mom thought it'd be a good idea to get the magnetic paint just like Alyssa. Haha.

Also, I dont know if I told you this already but I deffinatly got into drivers ed for March 4th. I got all the paper work and stuff. Im excited! But now I need to find a job =[ Ill probably be taking after my cousins and work at wendys....
