Yume Nikki

No, this is not a journal entry about Yume Nikki, rather, it is that I remembered that LJ existed and need a way to stay active. So, I'm going to start using this as a dream diary. It's kinda hard to do this during the week when I'm trying to get to school, so expect a post mostly on Saturday or Sunday.

I have not posted in forever...

Well, marching band starts next week. I got the drill, we gave each page a name (Bubblez, MOAR BUBBLEZ), and I highlighted the trumpet section on each page. West Side Story is going to be nice and I'm looking forward to a great season.


It's been too long since I last had an entry.

So today was what I shall call one of the highlights of my Junior year: a lock-down that lasted for 2 1/2 hours. I was in the bandroom the whole time along with 7 other people. Boy that was fun.
The cause, a janitor from another school district who was fired at the start of the school year and was considered armed and dangerous. However, he was apprehended with no shots fired and nobody was injured.


That was deadly

So, today was the final performance of the 2009-2010 marching band as we marched down mainstreet in potentially lethal conditions for the Memorial Day parade.
As stated above, it was deadly. The temperature had risen to at least 33 degrees Celsius, and we were marching in full uniform. By the end, no casualties, but some near fainting.

Happy Memorial Day everyone, here's Igor Stravinsky's re-harmonized version of the Star Spangled Banner


A Birthday Party

Although it wasn't really his birthday, I went to a party today in celebration of a friend of mine's 16th birthday. (Before I start this next sentence, I'm getting tired of calling the person who is now my girlfriend of two months "she/her") Even Shanna was there. She called me corny, but she was okay with my corniness xD
A fire was started in my friend's backyard firepit and that's where I stayed for the remainder of my time there. It was cool, a bunch of people just chilling out by the fire, then the honored one's mother came in with finger lights. Some of the idiots who had them threw them into the fire. Two things happened when they were thrown in

1. They caused a mini-explosion
2. Because they were made of plastic, they made the smoke emitted from the fire toxic

Well, otherwise, it was really fun

I can't wait for this Monday's parade :D

Fanfiction: Do you love it or hate it, or are you totally indifferent? Why?
Fanfiction should only exist if it's something the author would do. For example, I consider the movie Sherlock Holmes a fanfiction; but, it followed plenty of things Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had already laid out. Holmes is a genius who likes to experiment, Watson tags along and is sometimes amazed (not exactly positively amazed all the time) by Holmes actions and words. However, unlike Doyle's stories, Holmes meets the culprit while they're committing the crime, and the criminal is executed. Later though, he supposedly arises from the dead. Unlike the typical who-done-it stories, this was a how-did-he-do-it story.
