Current mood: Better than expected.
Well the thing I was fearing most lately just happened. But now that the water works have stopped, I'm actually feeling alright. I'm choosing to be optimistic about the situation. Deep breathes have been very helpful. I've really been focusing on not what I've lost but what I've gained. It was the best 3 months of my life, that's for sure. Something he said made me reflect to past times we had shared and I realized that rather than losing a relationship, I just got one back, maybe the best one I've ever had, a great friendship. Sure I'm sad, but contrary to what I thought earlier, I think I will be able to move on, though it will be tough to ever find another guy that can measure up to great person that he is.

Oh, Virginia. You're taking this really well, better than I would be if I were you. Hang in there, m'dear.
I think you're giving him too much credit.

This is what I have decided about high school orchestra chair placement: It's very unreliable. When you factor in seniority and favorites everyone ends up getting screwed over. This year there's the faulty concertmaster fiasco and last year was my placement of near last second violin. This year I am shy first Violin I by just 8 chairs (making me ninth Violin I...), not that I was in anyway expecting to get first or even in the top four for that matter. If you think about it, you should be able to compare placement in honor orchestra to placement in RPYO saying as it's pretty much the same people, but for some reason you can't. I almost always win in RPYO and lose in elite school related orchestras. I just don't understand why teachers would allow seniority to alter their decisions. Isn't it their job to prepare us for the "real world"? If anything, by letting someone get a higher chair because of seniority they are setting him or her up for failure and in the process they piss off anyone effected. I don't think my placement was really effected by that but I'm still not satisfied with my chair. That's okay though. I've already started practicing the all-state music and that is the group that really counts.

I couldn't agree more.

Je pense que parce que les gens peux ecrire en allemand a ton blog, je peux y ecrire en francais, non? Et tu peux ecrire en espagnol.
Sí, puedo la prueba segura para escribir en el español. Carezco la experiencia los dos tiene aunque. Tim es muy mudo. ¿Sí?
Damn blogger program. I guess it's not compatible with Spanish tildes and upside down question marks. Oh well, you get the point.

This year we had one just completely out of the ordinary marching competition. The first thing to happen was we didn't have a bus to get to Carson on. So all of us students pilled into the adults’ vehicles and got there that way. That turned out fine. So we go and perform. It was one of the best shows we'd ever marched. It came time for awards and apparently there was something wrong with the addition and we never received the correct score. I never did find out exactly what happened there. Then we go to leave and Galena gives us one of their busses. That was super nice of them. Then Mr. Haskell and I quickly go to use the restrooms, and when we come back we are standing in front of an empty parking lot. That's right, the bus left without us. The band left without the director, and the boyfriend left without the girlfriend. How does that happen? All I could say was -- I can't believe he let them leave without me. He is so dead. Apparently he did attempt to stop them from leaving, though obviously his efforts were thwarted. To top the day off, when Mr. Haskell and I finally got back to Reno he didn't have the keys to open the school so I went home in my uniform. There never was a dull moment to say the very least.
To add on being left behind, the marching band had an awards ceremony last night to end the marching season. I received the "He's so dead! Award", and he received the "Where's the band director? Go! Award". Didn't see that one coming.

There was this link( http://www.politicalcompass.org ) in the school newspaper for a test you can take to determine whether you are democratic or Republican etc. So I took it and turns out that I am further to the left than I thought I would be. I guess it makes sense though since I am pro certain things that Christians aren't supposed to be. That doesn't really matter though since Bush does have Christian morals. Fine, make abortion illegal, see if I care, or if the women who die trying to kill their unwanted babies care, or if the unwanted children care. No really, go ahead.
On a more pleasant note, Reno marching band won second place(first out of the Nevada bands) in their division at the UNR competition along with best drum line and, surprisingly enough, best drum majors (however that happened). So hooray for Reno Marching Band.
I just got the Music for the Edge show Reno High Band will be putting on soon. I am so excited. It will be so much fun. Not to mention that I'm like the star of the show (rock on)! The music is like a synth rock band. Everyone should definitely make an effort to come and see the awesome show we put on.
