PEP BAND! (and other stuff I am not excited about)

Well. Guess what? OK, fine, admit it, you guys are never gonna guess “what”. So I’m just gonna tell you! I’M FINALLY DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE! (Kind of!) I JUST SIGNED UP FOR THE PEP BAND!!!!!!! (That many exclamation marks wasn’t exactly needed, but I’m not the most enthusiastic person about signing up for optional stuff either.) Well, the Pep Band like a band thing that plays music for da sports teams (arrogant people, I tell you.) when they’re playing their game. I don’t see how that will help actually, but I love playing the bassoon and Darcy’s joining as well (after a series of puppy eyes and PLEAZEEEEs, she didn’t really intend to sign up.)! She plays the clarinet. Typically in a typical band class she sits on the second row and I sit on the third row next to the former-alto-sax-player-and-now-plays-bari (baritone)-sax guy who I hates basically for being really talkative (and a terrible singer, who loves to sing at the most random times. Not to mention he sings “The Barbie Song” *you know who you are*) and the other guy on the other side is in da sports team. The teacher said that we’re gonna play stuff for the sports team, so I suspect we’re gonna be a more like a cheerleading-band which plays the more band-ish songs. Well, it’s a thing to look forward to, since we only have band on Day 6 now (Which means 1 day out of six dayzzzz!! NOT ENUFF.) and the rest of the music days (Day 2 and 4) are all General Music!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I like playing the bassoon waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay (it really deserves that many a’s) better than singing, mainly because I don’t like to sing in front of people. You may notice that I do not exactly excel at socializing with people, much less performing in front of people.

Owl City

I’ve been randomly drowning myself with Owl City music (Not News) lately so I’m probably gonna bombard you guys with random Owl City song’s random lyrics randomly (NEWS! Definitely ) in parenthesis ( () <——— These thingies) in the following sentences AKA paragraph which will not be about the PEP BAND thing and more like about the stuff that’s new in school, therefore new to me (Symphony of silver tears, sing to me. and soothe the ring in my ears…Lonely Lullaby) – I TOLD YOU I WAS GONNA DO THAT. 1. Mandarin is getting harder, I mean, like, of COURSE Mandarin Class is gonna get harder when I go up a grade, but we have a mini-quiz for five words every DAY. We have a whole packet of (I’d like to make myself believe, that planet Earth, turrrrns sloooowllyyy…Fireflies) 1,200 words. ARGHHHHHH! AKA me screaming. 2. Math isn’t getting any harder. THAT WAS NOT EXPECTED. At least we’re still learning about  PLACE VALUE, which you really can’t expect it to get any harder during the primary years. I know because I had 5 years of EXPERIENCE! (I don’t know about Middle School.) But honestly, I never feel (Dear God I was terribly lost when the Galaxies crossed, and the sun went daaark, Dear GOD, you’re the only north star I will follow this faaaar… Galaxies) like the math is challenging. Meh. 3. Guided Reading books are boring. They’re not actually THAT bad, but I just felt like rereading Inkheart, but they give me a book about Benjamin Franklin. Now that’s a bad idea, isn’t it. We also need to TAKE TURNS (A grass blade flashed with a gleam as it slashed open a moonbeam, and I stared back breathlesslyStrawberry Avalanche) READING OUT LOUD! As far as I know I really HATE reading out loud, especially when I’m reading something I didn’t want to read in the first place (say… that Benjamin Franklin book was a good example of what I didn’t want to read at the moment). Well, seems like the teacher’s saying “DEAL WITH IT, TORI” again this time. *Sigh*  4. Flocab songs suck. First of all, rap songs aren’t my thing. Second of all, refer to Number One. I DON’T LIKE THEM, except Alligator Sky (Owl City song duh.). (So here’s a reference: Where was I when the rockets came to life, and carried you away, into the Alligator Sky…Alligator Sky) 5. I am running (We were alone on the road driving faster, So far from home we were chasing disaster… Dreams and Disasters) out of things to say.

Fangirls

Hi. Here I am again. With terribly nothing to do. Maybe I do have something to do, like check my school handbook to see when schools back again… fill out forms for the next school year… It’s like everything is evolving around school, even during summer holidays. Part of me is telling myself to take a picture of the clouds outside because they really look really cool, part of me is telling me that I’m not supposed to take pictures of clouds on my phone… and I have lots of pictures of random plants already. Not to mention that the lane I take everyday from school to home has lots of hanging plants, which makes it look like it’s a new world on the pavement. My post is going nowhere. That’s what I do when I try to post a fangirl post on my blog, or blogs, or bloggeds (Bloggeds is not a word, but I do have lots of old blogs on Blogger which I have abandoned, I think I will never provide it’s links.).  Mind my limited vocabulary, my original intention for this post is to talk about my small fangirl about all things Owls and Owl City. Like, songs. (*Insert loud taunting female voice shouting “STUPID”!) I don’t actually know much about Adam Young, OR his Owl City tour concerts team… well you know how much of a fan I am. It’s like a family tradition in my… well, family. We all have favorite songs and favorite artists and different fangirls… but we’re never actually interested in what that person is doing, or anything about them (Yes, so basically everything we know about them is their name and gender.) I have no idea how to fangirl! (OH NO! The cloud is GONE!) Well my concept of fangirling is bouncing around while listening to the songs so….nothing!

Guess that! This one’s really obvious. Whoever guesses it first in the comments get a very special e-mail from me! (Ya! Then we can be pen pals for like, ten years or something!)
