Some friends you guys turned out to be. I honestly thought at least one of you would understand, but you didn’t. Looks like I’ve been replaced.
Thanks for nothing. I can’t wait to get out of here.
I hope it rains.
omg agreed. Community is wonderful… <3

Until then, peace out.
Good things today.

You are sincerely one of my best friends. Everyone sees you as flawless. Who can blame them? You pretty much are. You push yourself to your absolute limit and never give up on your beautiful dreams to help people. We’ve had endless talks about our futures and the things we long to accomplish, talks that I couldn’t have with anyone else because they simply don’t understand the amount of drive and ambition we have inside of us. We’ve bonded through mutual classes and our music. We understand each other on the deepest levels. People say you’re going to change the world. I believe it. You’re creative, driven, involved, a leader, and everything that it takes (and more) to become a successful leader in this crazy world. I hope you get in to every college you apply to, and I hope that you run for political office, because we’d all vote for you. You’ve been through a hell of a lot. More than people know. But you push through all of it without complaint. I feel closer to you than almost anyone else here in this small town. Emily Andre, I love you so much! You will go so far. If I could someday become half the person you are, I’d live a pretty great life. <3
I WILL stay optimistic! Yesssss! Waiting to hear back from CYSO. I heard our letters come in tomorrow. Yes. Awesome. >:)
Get me out of here. I don’t know what my problem is, and I’m pretty sure no one can help me. This is ridiculous.
ah, thanks, Em. you’re wonderful. <3
I know the ACT isn’t everything, but when all of your friends do better than you, your parents aren’t happy with your score, and you’re disappointed in yourself, you feel kind of low.
I made the two top ensembles in the Midwest Young Artists, and I will (officially) be continuing my position as the drum major for the Marching Sequoits for the third and final time.
Senior year- bring it on. But until then, I’m ready for the summer ;)
Edit: Awwwwww :D
Great weekend. Shitty day.
Prom with Jordan was awesome. I was lucky enough to have Anna do my hair/makeup and it looked amazing. Pictures were fun; mom was able to make it to take a couple of ‘em and Zack was also there. <3 It was raining so pictures were inside, but that was just our luck. Our “group” that would sit at our table sat on the last bus. It wasn’t too long to the Grand Geneva and we took pictures the whole way there. Everyone quite literally danced the night away and my sore calves are a result of the crazy night. Afterwards, a bunch of us went over to Paul’s house for some serious video-game playing. :) Once we got tired, everyone crashed at my house. The entire night was filled with laughter and good-natured fun. I had a blast, and I’ve definitely never danced that much.
Stupid People (including myself)-
I was heading over to Iza’s to pick her up for dinner and have catch up time. I turned left onto Lake St. and pulled up to the stop sign. As I was about to go, I saw a car coming from my right and stopped. Realizing I had pulled up too far, I backed up without looking or accelerating, and hit the lady behind me. I asked her if she could back up her car to see the damage. She wouldn’t and insisted on calling the police. Great. Well, after some inspection, not a single scratch was left on either car. Both my parents came to check it out. It was a waste of everyone’s time, especially the cop’s, to file this as a real accident. Yet she insisted on calling the police. I now have a court date and two tickets. I wish people were more understanding, but you can’t exactly pick and choose who you back in to. I can only hope that no one has to go through this annoying experience like I did today. >:(
Thankfully my parents are good people and understand that kids make mistakes. <3
If you’re a working classical musician or are studying to become one, you probably find yourself having to justify that peculiarity to many people.
Or to yourself, even.
I’ve studied music at several places—one of them quite famous—but am finishing my undergraduate degree at a college mostly focused on aerospace engineering. I made the decision to study there because it was local and affordable, and because the faculty and other students are remarkable people, a well-appointed artsy island amid a vast sea of tech.
Some students from other parts of campus are genuinely surprised to learn that our school has a music department at all. “Why would you major in music—what can you even do with that?” they will ask me.
“Well, why would you want to be an engineer?” I might reply.
