Now I know this is shocking news to everyone so brace yourselves: There is a new boy to which I am focusing my affection. My new Foreign Attraction is two to three years older than me though age doesn't matter much. He barely believed me when I told him I was only 16. He is a freshmen at UNR and a very handome violinist. He is one of the nicest boys I have ever met. He is sweet and charming and I know he was flirting shamelessly with me last Saturday. I used to not really look forward to Pops rehearsals but now I have something to look forward to. The next rehearsal cannot come soon enough.

I sure hope it's right.

Hahahahaaaaa...I love double fortunes.

Someone surprised me today. You really never know when someone may rise above their normal expectaions and really give you hope. I just never expected to get the encouragement that I did today. It was a very positive day for me. I hope days like these keep coming because I am going to need them if I am going to make this happen.

Throughout the last few days I have been taking a survey among the boys in my chemistry class and those who happen to stumble into the class room. The statistic I came up with is quite interesting I think, yet not really too surprising. Eight out of nine high school boys have engaged in a certain natural activity in the past week. Some of the individual results I received from individual people were surprising but the over all result was not. The purpose of the survey was to prove a point and I think I proved it quite adequately.

Your survey has aided my attempt to come to terms with reality. I have, unfortunately, a long way to go.

I can remember that in elementary school I was always constantly ostracize. I never felt like I really belonged there. However, there was one boy who was always very nice to me. I can't think of a single time when he upset me. I always thought of him as my best friend, but on top of that he was the first boy I ever had a crush on.
After third grade I left that school because of financial issues and began attending Public school. I can't say that I missed my first school a whole lot, but I sure did miss him. I've thought about him periodically since then, but never really had any faith that I'd see him again.
A couple days after Spring break during a testing period, I was signing in on the attendance sheet and noticed it had his name down. Of course I was thinking, it's probably just someone else with the same name. I only knew about half the kids in the room. So I was looking at the kids in front of me (we were sitting in alphabetical order and his name comes a little before mine) trying to see if any of them looked like him. Now keep in mind that I hadn't seen him for 7 years and people do change over time. I'm looking and I do see one that kind of looks like him. And I'm staring at this kid trying to figure out if it's him or not and the more I look at him the more I think it's him. The next day comes and I still hadn't gotten the courage to go and talk to him. I sat there after I finished my test thinking I owe it to myself to find out if it's really him.
Me: Is you name...
Him: Hi Virginia. How's it going?
I swear it's like something out of a movie. Childhood friends reunited! I thinks it's the coolest thing ever. What are the odds that out of every high school in Reno, we end up at the same one, especially since when I knew him I didn't even live in Reno. Every time I see him I go and talk to him. I guess I've kind of been trying to figure out if he's the same boy I knew 7 years ago. Now he's wearing wranglers but I still see him as the boy in the red Lion King sweatshirt.

I think it's cute how I have names for all of my male love interests. I do this for two reasons: (1) I don't always want that person knowing I'm talking about them and sometimes I don't want anyone to know who I'm talking about for that matter, and (2) I like to keep a certain amount of ambiguity within my thoughts. For example there's Prince Charming, and Other Boy, and I will be adding Previous Love Interest, and who could leave out The Cutest French Horn Player I've Ever Seen(that one isn't so vague..too bad).
Of course that entire intro was just to set myself up for talking about - what else?- boys.
Prince Charming has some definite character flaws that would be very difficult to handle. I will refrain from mentioning them. But also, I was talking to him today, shocking, and he mentioned that he doesn't date. Well, I'm not really sure I would want to date him anyway. However, I was slightly disappointed. Now I feel like him as a possibility has been thrown out the window. Is this goodbye for Prince Charming? Stayed tuned.....
I have recently lost much of my tolerance for Previous Love Interest, and this had caused me to drift away from him a bit. I am very saddened by this because many of my high school memories are shared with him. Of course we are still friends but I just feel like through the last couple weeks we lost something.
Then there's the Other Boy. I fall for him again and again every single day. I wish more than anything that somehow every time he tells me that he's not attracted to me that he were lying. That would make me extremely happy. But back to life. That's not how it works. Que pena.
Now if Mr. French Horn could have just fallen in love with me at Allstate then my boy problems would be temporarily cured. I'd get to date The Cutest French Player I've Ever Seen and I wouldn't have to worry about the above three at all. Too bad that didn't happen. Demasiado malo. I may never even see him again. How sad is that.....?

Yeah, I noticed that too. What's the deal?

I was exploring the Bands Of America website just now and I found the calendar showing who the conductor and soloist for next year's Honor Orchestra of America is going to be, just to discover that Christopher O'Riley is the soloist for next year. Recently I have developed what you might call an obsession for Christopher O'Riley. This just makes the post from earlier today all the more incredibly true. It is my goal for the next several months to prepare something perfect for this audition because it would mean the world to me to make it. I mean I might as well audition. What's the worst that can happen, I don't make it. Well I think I owe it to myself to try, and that's exactly what I intend to do.

I know I've said this before but this time I am so serious, I am going to start practicing all of my music more thoroughly. Tonight when I found two midgets sitting in the front stand of the youth symphony I had a break through. Everything people have been saying to me through the last year finally sunk in. I want to go to a conservatory, I want to study music, it's hard work, and If I really want to achieve my goals I need to work harder. Well a couple of annoying midgets sitting in a chair that could be mine if I worked hard enough is unacceptable. So this is where it starts. I turn over a new leave now.

I know that this sounds strange, but I wish that I were still in Elko. Last week was the most fun I've had in a very long time. Staying up late with my best friends, playing great orchestral literature, spending every waking moment with the coolest kids I know, and I could never forget, meeting Fred Stone, the cutest French horn player I've ever laid eyes on. I wish more than anything at this moment that I could relive those 4 days again. Too bad it's back to reality tomorrow.

I just got back from my dad's house in Fernley. I walked into my room when I was there and of course there was an Easter basket waiting for me. Every year there is always something incredibly strange that Cathy has found on sale at Cosco or something in my basket. It's these things I think I look forward to the most, even if I do end up throwing them away or giving them away, one or the other. This year it was the knockoff brand robin eggs and the questionably flavored FruitFlashed brand fruit chews. Now if you have ever had a true Robin egg, you know that the correct brand for these is Whoppers and inside the colored shell there is your typical malt ball. I'm not sure if these want-to-be Robin eggs even consist of chocolate. I don't think this is chocolate, well, I hope it's not. And instead of the typical tannish color malt inside, the malt part takes on what ever color the outer shell is. Aside from all this they just taste bazaar. On to the fruit chews. I think they are supposed to be like Now-and-Laters. I'm not quite sure how old these are because they are rock hard, first of all. Second, I am reading orange flavored on the front but I'm actually tasting a variety of mystery fruit. Yup, she never fails to discover the oddest Easter candy ever. Of course I do have some of the typical chocolate marshmallow bunnies and of course the Russell Stover Peanut Butter Giant bunny. Do they really think I can eat this all?

I have absolute faith that through some Herculean burst of strength you will somehow, albeit at the risk of great personal sacrifice, manage to eat all of your Easter candy. Something about that way that you can describe the inner molecular structure of the one and only "true" Robin's Egg leads me to trust you implicitly when it comes to Easter candy consumption.
