It's a quiet Monday afternoon, I'm sitting at my computer amongst piles of used tissue, glasses of water & old iced tea bottles and clothes and unfolded laundry strewn about my bedroom...
What a pretty picture.
Spring break is over. I wouldn't be able to tell if it weren't for the return of cloudy weather, lack of facebook status' and quiet unease that surrounds me now. I'm at home, on a school day, because I am sick. Again. I know, it ain't right. It's not a sickness like the one I just previously experienced (you know, the one from HELL), just a ferociously runny nose paired with perpetual sneezing. Compared to what I went through about a month ago, it's quite lovely. Instead of being bitter, I'm thankful.
I'll be better before you know it. I'm planning on returning to my scholastic endeavors tomorrow. And no, I don't know why I'm so speaking so indulgently formal right now. You'll just have to go with it.
I'm really starting to feel like I'm graduating this year. The reality of it is actually beginning to kick in. All the graduation forms that need to be filled out, the preparations for the grad song (Not Giving In, which we're auditioning next Wednesday), prom dress shopping. That's right, my cousin, my mum and I finally did the deed. For me, it only took one store, one saleslady, and the first dress I tried on to pick mine. That may not sound smart, but I knew exactly what I was looking for. And I found it for a ridiculously awesome price in my size on the sale rack as a part of a sample sale in the colour I wanted, in the style I like- everything. It's perfect. :]
Yeah, things are getting serious. It's all really happening. And like I said, I can actually feel it now. It feels real- crazy, but real. :P
I've got about two and a half months of high school left and sure, a lot will change, but I think a lot will be the same- but better. For me, graduation means more time for me to do what I want, and that's music. I'll be playing like nobody's business. I'll have more time and energy to dedicate to everything revolving around that. And take my word for it, there's a lot. Being an artist; a musician and being in charge of that is running your own business. My craft is my business. And when I graduate I'll be able to put everything into that.
I'm excited. :) It's exciting! All the possibilities... Heck, I'm looking forward to this summer! ^^ It's my favorite!
I'm looking forward to what's to come. I'm looking forward to my last days of school with my friends, the graduation ceremony, prom, sunny weather, recording, experimenting, meeting new people, traveling... the list goes on and it's constantly expanding.
And I'm looking forward to sharing it with you, my loyal blog readers. :-) I've been blogging for... over two years now? And I don't plan on stopping. I've been blogging less partly because I'm writing in a journal everyday and partly because I can be lazy, but this is something that's good and something that I want to keep going.
I'm not going to promise that to you, or guarantee that I'll keep doing so, because things constantly change. But this is certainly a good thing I have going and like my music, my best friends and family, blogging is something I've naturally stuck with over the years, over periods of change- it's helped get me through those times; those changes. And that is so valuable to me.
So, thanks for being apart of something so great. :) Let's keep it going!
Will write soon!
Much love & appreciation,
