Well, I got my Gorillaz figures last week! <3 They're so cool and I will eat them! 2D's head falls off like every three seconds, but I don't care, I love them anyway (2D is my favorite, but don't tell the others). Now I'll have to make a bunch of retarded videos with them and completely soil their glory and dignity. 

We had the talent show on the 9th... I don't remember if I wrote about it or not. But yeah, it went really well. It made me really realize how much I want to be famous. I want to be able to do that every day, to stand on stage and make the things inside come out in words that people actually respond to, I want to make people feel the music like so many people have done for me. It's almost like a zen thing for me, being on stage and singing like that, seeing the way people react, making people actually LISTEN... for once not just being the weird kid in the back of the class... for once actually being in my element. Every time we have a talent show or choir concert, every time I sing, I feel like I'm exactly where I belong. So, I don't care how it happens, or when, and I know I'll also be writing, but I really want my job to be to stand there on stage night after night and sing. And to have the power that being famous brings you... the power to make a difference, and to change things that need changing. People listen to you when you're famous. People CARE about what you have to say. 

Which is why I'm really hoping the band will work out. Even though singing is what I love most, I still love my bass, but I'm not that great at it. And then Natalie doesn't have a drum set and can't afford to buy one, we're all still in school (well, I graduate in 2 months, but then Natalie won't be graduating for 6 years, and the others have 5 years to go). None of us know how to play our instruments, besides Sammy who rules at life. And we can't afford a recording studio... and my lyrics are messed up to the point where they're so cryptic that they make no sense. XD I'm not complaining. I'm just trying to figure out our obstacles. Oh well. Somehow, no matter what it takes, I know we'll make it eventually. Because we've already declared ourselves the world's greatest band (LAWLZ), and that's a little too big of a claim to make and not try our asses off to get somewhere, even if we were joking when we said it.

Natalie decided that we're called Second Dimension, by the way, without anyone else's input. She's a nazi, but we love her XD

Blah! So anyway, Sammy was over here last night, so Britt and I had a jam session with her; meaning Sammy rocked the keyboards with ridiculous amounts of skill that I had no idea she had, Britt backed her up with guitar chords she made up, and I sat there with my bass being a worthless pile of flesh. This whole band thing isn't working out as well as it should, because we never all get together at once to practice, Natalie doesn't even OWN a drum set, much less know how to play, we don't even have a name, and I suck at bass so bad that I shouldn't be allowed to hold such a sexy instrument. But we won't give up. Even if we do suck. Even if my bass lines sound like repetitive shit. It's still fun and amazing, and I've never gotten such a kick out of being in a band before.

But yes, I'll continue to update on our band's situation as it progresses, not that anyone gives a flying shit. XD

Going to Hastings today (maybe) to pass some dead time. Working on a story that I'll probably never finish, but it's so much fun to work on anyway. Unable to use complete sentences right now. There's a beaver puppet on my desk, and it squeaks when you squeeze its head. His name is Sykes. He is my lovechild. 

THE SUN IS OUT! SWEET JESUS IT'S NICE OUTSIDE! It's such a nice day. I think I'll have to take a random jog around the block. And my strawberry lotion smells so good I almost drank it this morning. God, it's good. It's so pink. Pink is the color of the gods. But orange is better. Most of the snow has melted. I'm going off on random subjects today. 

I think I'll talk to my counselor and drop Algebra 2 so I don't have to take math my last semester of high school. And because I want Mr. Kemkes as my Psychology teacher, because he is badass. And because I want to take Animation 2 instead of Horticulture. I banged your mom. 

Love love love <3
