Making Room

Well hi (:

I'm tired. I'm thirsty. I'm unmotivated. I'm distracted. I'm experiencing mild writer's block that I think I could fix decently easily by just... writing anyway. But here I am, spilling my thoughts to whoever it reaches on the other end of this thing we call "the internet."

Club Grad was the bomb. Seriously, I had a killer time. You'd think something with the name "Club Grad" (emphasis on the CLUB) would have lots to do with drinking, dancing, and just... things I don't like to do, but who would have thought there would actually be innocently fun things involved as well.

Well... I did. :] That's why I went. And I'm sure glad I did, because as I said before, awesomeness. It was pure awesomeness. :)

Let me some up the night for you with the following: free pizza, free all-play arcade, slushies, a deserted dance floor we had all to ourselves, private karaoke because no one else wanted to, and Jackass 3D.

Hells. Yeah.

Oh, and friends. Lots of friends. (:

I was beaming. It was sweet. Now, however, it's Tuesday night and I'm sitting at home typing up this blog entry because I'm outwardly avoiding what I should be doing. I should be working on my "Short Story," I put that in quotations because mine is not so short. I'm reaching eleven pages after formatting it correctly (taking away double spacing, it's easier to write it that way).

As my cousin Tisha would say, "hurrumph."

That pretty much sums up how I feel about my not-so-short-story. I really should just kill the main character now. It's dragging on! I'M DONE WITH IT!



On the bright side, I have no other over-due, pressing assignments. AND I have a spare to catch up in, which makes me wonder why I'm so behind with my short story in the first place.

grumble grumble grumble.

As for my music endeavors, I don't really currently have any. This makes me down. BUT last night I was playing piano for quite some time and it got me stoked about my album again.

I would like to work on it this year, and not wait till I'm out of school, but you know... there's this thing called "life" that tends to get in the way. I don't want to use that as an excuse either, but it really is the truth of the matter.

My dad has his own work to attend to, let alone helping me with mine. I'm still in school, and it seems evident that there's a lot that comes with that (especially this year). It really only leaves the occasional weekend to work on anything. But then there are school projects, such as our Drama: Film and TV Anti-Drinking and Driving Commercial. That's this weekend. As well as this competition I'm in. Every other Sunday night downtown it's the Vancouver Island's Got Talent Competition. And then there's prepping for that. And then there's fitting in time with friends and family, and

AHHH. That's the life I was talking about.

But I'm not giving up. It will happen. I can make room for something I'm in love with.

I should just marry music and get it over with.

;) lol

This gives me the sudden urge to play my keyboard.

I'm off!

Typical, regular teenage stuff.

Hi :)

I know. I'm posting again! IT'S EXCITING!

I feel like I've had no time to over the past few months, but hopefully that era is dead. I think I shall make the time. I mean, I'm only sixteen. One thing I do have is the freedom to decide what I want to do with my time. I'm not held down by any jobs or responsibilities.

Right now, is the easy life. And I'm going to savour it as much as I possibly can!

Things are going well. As I said before, it feels a bit hectic- busier than last year, but this is my last year of high school. I'm taking classes I really want to take, and I'm enjoying what this last year has to offer. I'm not worrying about anything else really.

EXCEPT for this competition I'm currently in. =P I've made it through the audition and first preliminary round of Vancouver Island's Got Talent. Next Sunday is the second round, so WISH ME LUCK. :]

If you'd like to come out to a show (next one's October 24th) visit my website for more details.


All in all, I'm taking it easy. ^^

I'm being a sixteen year old (seventeen in a month!!), going to school, playing music, seeing friends... you know, all the typical, regular teenage stuff. :]

Tomorrow's Club Grad, which is the epitome of "typical, regular teenage stuff."

Imma live it up. ;)

New grade, new experiences, new vlog :)

Well hi there (:

It's been a while since I blogged last, and things are going pretty... great, actually =]

Grade twelve has been awesome so far. I love all of my classes, and have met some very cool new people. I have a spare now (a block with no class), and it's proven to be quite useful and very nice to have a break in the day. ^^

Usually, I go to starbucks and do work, but on one of my spares last week a lot of friends decided to join me, so we went to the park...

:) May I present to you part of the grad class of 2011. It still feels weird saying that.

This picture already makes me sad that it's all coming to an end. It's hard to believe, let along imagine what it's going to be like.

But before graduation comes, there are many other things coming in the immediate future. Like Halloween, my seventeenth birthday :), Christmas, hopefully some more Coffee Houses at school, prom (oh boy)...

And this weekend is "Club Grad" at silver city. Now that, I'm pretty excited for. An ENTIRE night (literally, all night long) of movies, friends, food, laughing, and shenanigans. Oh, and Jackass 3D, which I'm literally scared of.


But it'll be fun, just as long as I don't fall asleep!

Since this is my grad year, I'm going to make it a point to document it. Wether it's through pictures, video, blog posts, diary entries- you name it, it's going to be remembered.

Speaking of documentation, I've finished another vlog! I added onto it last night, since I've gathered more footage to include.

It's called "Life and Music" and it's in the style of "Life is Awesome."

You can watch both of them on my MobileMe account. :]

I'd love to be able to put them on YouTube, but since I used songs that aren't my own, there are copyright issues. It's silly, but it's the way it is.

So, enjoy :)

Till next time

xx Karly.
