Subject:wow
Time:2:06 pm.
so it's been over three years since i've updated this journal. i have a blog on Blogspot, but i haven't updated it in a couple of weeks. i'm wanting to get really serious with one or the other, but i'm not real sure which one to dedicate my time too. LiveJournal is good because it's easy to connect with people that you don't necessarily know outside of LiveJournal, which i feel isn't really the case with Blogspot. but i don't know, it might be kind of easy to make friends with a blog. regardless, i'm going to debate this and do some preference searching, and then decide. so i might be hanging around some more (and i'm sure if this pops up on any one's friend list thing, it might be kind of surprising for you. but maybe not. we'll see)

Subject:man...
Time:11:23 pm.
well, i leave tomorrow and i talked to a few of my friends from back home. i remembered that my cell phone was in the car from the trip to the beach so i go and get it and i notice that i have a voice mail waiting for me. so i get it and listen and it's kristen telling me that dusty's corp might not be marching at the drum corps show i'm going to this friday. :( major bummer...i've been looking forward to seeing how far they've come since i've seen them last. we're still going though either way, but i hope his corps'll be there. besides, i miss hangin' out with that kid, it'd be cool to see him again.

i called dustin, but no one picked up. so i left a message.

i also talked to katie-lynn. it's always cool catching up with her and stuff, she's all over the place. she's gonna get up around 6-7am and go white water rafting, so it sounds like she's gonna have a lot of fun tomorrow. hopefully she'll stay safe too, i know that can be dangerous.

and it turns out...today isn't the day we find out about who our new band director is. it's gonna be next monday, the 28th. uhhh! so much anxiety over this, i wanna know already!!!

well, that's basically it. i'll see you guys later.

Subject:update!
Time:6:34 pm.
Mood: tired.
man, i haven't updated in a couple of days..so here's what's happened:

on Sunday we did the whole swimming thing, which was just okay. i tried really not to taste the pool water because it was a community pool, and you know...but yeah, the water was really salty and just...gross. and it was like 85 degrees or something so you didn't really cool off very well in the water. later at night we went to a chinese buffet restaurant place for father's day. it was really really good food. but later that night i got really sick...my stomach was totally killing me and it kept me up for a while, but i eventually fell asleep. so yeah, i got better. :D

yesterday, ummm...not much happened really during the day. later that night me and my dad went to the place where he plays pool on mon/tues. nights. i didn't really want to go, but i leave on wednesday and i wanted to spend some time with him cuz i don't really see him that much. it turned out though that the team he's a part of wasn't playing last night, so he played a couple of people and we left early. pool isn't really my thing but my dad really likes it, so i try and support him with it.

and today was the beach again. it was really hot and the water was actually really cold. it rained a lot last night so that might be why it was cooler than usual. at the non-beach it was pretty boring and the beach beach wasn't much better really. there weren't any waves at all, i was so bummed. :( but that's cool, i got some sun out of the trip so that's cool.

not much is happening tonight i don't think, but we'll see. we might get a movie or something, i dunno. i thought i'd update for all of you guys though since i haven't in a few days. later.

Time:9:06 pm.
Mood: relaxed.
today i went to the beach again, this time just with my dad. we got to the beach about...1:30pm and only stayed for about an hour and a half. it was pretty cool though. i'm not really burned or anything which is good but my burn that was there is just a little more red now. tomorrow we're gonna go swimming at a family friend's house so i won't be in the sun for a couple more days after tomorrow. i'm sure that once this sunburn goes away it'll set into a tan and, hopefully, i won't peel. on tuesday we're gonna go to the beach again. it's the day before i leave so that should be fun.

other than the beach i haven't really done much except for hang around the house. earlier we took my dad's truck and my step-mom's car and put air in the tires. it poured down rain in the middle of it all so i got soaked. but oh well, i'm all dry now. :D

Subject:so...
Time:11:17 pm.
Mood: lazy.
haven't updated today so i suppose i'll go ahead and do so.

not much really happened...i'm still burned but it's going away pretty quickly. it doesn't hurt at all except for around my waist where my shorts started. but that's cool, it'll go away. we're supposed to go to the beach tomorrow but i dunno if i should, we'll see how i am in the morning.

anyways, today apljuice4myfrnd guided me to a really cool band named goodbyetomorrow. i've only heard two of their songs but i really like their sound and stuff. the two songs at www.purevolume.com/goodbyetomorrow aren't perfect quality, but you'll get a really good idea of what they sound like from the two songs. i recommend that everyone who reads this checks them out, i think they're well worth it.

and other than being online today i haven't done a thing. pretty normal day for the summer for me.

uhhhh i really need to start reading The Iliad. this is getting ridiculous!

Subject:what an awesome day it has been
Time:8:53 pm.
Mood: hot.
man oh man i couldn't have asked for a better day today. today was the best day i've had the whole time i've been at my dad's so that's completely awesome!

first, i got up really early like...7:30am and my dad's like "joel, beth's getting ready to go the beach, aren't you supposed to go with her?" and i just kinda groaned a response and thought "we're not going to the beach until 11:00..." so yeah, i don't really understand why my dad came and woke me up so early...i went back to bed and woke up around 10:15-30am and put my boardshorts on and basically drowned myself in suntan lotion.

anyways, we get to Sebastian Inlet State Park and we go to the "non-beach", i'll call it. it was basically a low area around the docks where people can go..it's seperated by a big line of rocks and stuff and it was a place where a lot of little kids go. so, since my little sis was with us, we went there first. the non-beach kinda sucks unless you wanna just lay out or float in the water or snorkle, but i didn't have much of a desire to do the first two and didn't have any snorkle gear or anything. so i decide to get a pool float and float around in the water. after about 20 minutes, these two women go "hey, do you wanna see a manatee? there's one right over here, come look!" so i went over there and we all pet the manatee. it was really cool. i mean, i saw some at Sea World, but it was completely different seeing a wild manatee and petting it. like i said, really cool.:) it came back later with a friend, but word had gotten around and people were just crowding them, so i kept my distance.

at about 2:00pm, we left the non-beach and went to the beach beach. when we got there i looked at the waves and i thought "now this is what i call a beach." the waves were HUGE i haven't had that much fun at the beach ever just diving into the waves and letting them catch me when i was swimming towards the shore. they were pretty powerful, i almost lost my shorts in a couple lol! but yeah we stayed there for about...oh...2 hours or so, it was great. there were a lot of really good surfers there too and it was cool to watch them ride the waves.

and so i get home and get a shower and at first i was like "wow, awesome, i hardly got burned at all." ....

OH MY GOSH i am so burned!! haha it's like a full body thing too...you can tell EXACTLY where my shorts were..i've never been burned on my stomach or chest really but i got it this time. but that's okay, it doesn't hurt all that bad, i'm just really really hot! whew...

so at about 5:00pm katie-lynn gets online. we talk for a bit and she says that she is "very satisfied" with the band director interviews. for those of you that don't know about the whole band director thing at my school, read up on it here.Collapse )

so yeah now that you know the background, our school is interviewing directors interested in coming to Easley. the principal asked three kids from the band to help interview because she wants to have student input, which i think is really awesome of her. they interviewed two people on Tuesday but no one really thought much of them. and then today they interviewed two more people and from what i hear, either of them would be perfect for the spot. so mrs. garrison, our principal, ordered those two from who she thought would be best and if they couldn't get hired, who would be next best. she's sending the list to the district and they'll run background checks and hire according to her recommendations. we'll know on tuesday who will be our new band director. i'm so excited you have no idea. this year is looking better and better!

AND after that, i go to collegeboard.com. now, i'm thinking "well, my SAT scores will be up tomorrow so i'm gonna see what the whole 'send scores' thing looks like." so i log on to my account on there and go to my send scores area and my scores are there! a day early, woo! i passed my goal of 1200 and made a 1230, i was so freaking excited!!! my scores split like this: Math/610 (highest Math score i've ever gotten) and Verbal/620 (tied for highest Verbal i've gotten). so i've done the best i've ever done on any kind of SAT, so i can't complain AT ALL. i think a 1230 will be a good score to send to GA Tech on my application, so i'm all excited about that now. go me! lol

aaaaand that's about it. today was full of stuff to do and i had a blast. hopefully tomorrow will be just as good.

Subject:crazy...
Time:5:10 pm.
Mood: surprised.
i just went back and read my LJ from the beginning to now...and i don't really like what i read. :(

i used to be so different. i started this LJ about January and so much has changed since then...it seems like i used to be really oppressive or something like i had a lot inside of me that needed to be released.

but i don't feel that way anymore. i mean, there's still times that i don't really tell people how i feel when i'm down or whatever, i'm never that way for very long anyhow, but when i started this LJ...up until around March, things were really crazy with me. maybe church has changed me, maybe hanging out with Dusty has changed me, i dunno.

but i like the me i am now...and i don't think i'll be missing the old me.

Mood: bummed isn't a choice.. :(.
i don't really know why but i feel pretty bummed right now. maybe it's the music...maybe it's the fact that i'm really missing my friends right now..i dunno. but it sucks. :( it's nice that i have people to talk to online and all, but it's even better when you actually talk to someone..you know?

did that make any sense at all?

man i really need to read The Iliad. i'm so slacking on that. argh!

Subject:errr....well...?
Time:11:13 pm.
Mood: SURPRISE....
man, there's really not that much to update about today...i'll try and see if i can be random and make it interesting.

let's see...this morning..i woke up. (wow.) it was about 11:30am, which is pretty good for me during the summer. got a bowl of cereal and checked my e-mail, etc. no one was online, so i got offline and went into the living room and did something. i can't really remember what.

yeah, so far, i've been distracted atleast 4 times from updating...i wonder if i have ADD?

wow, it's figures after i said that i'd go do something else. i just downloaded AIM+...but i don't really have a reason to. all the people i talk to online have the sn i use now anyway, so yeah...i've been thinking of getting a new one, but i dunno. i wanna think of a cool one, but i'm not good at that stuff.

for some reason i just remembered something from surfing lessons. lol it was pretty funny. abby had a hold of me and my board and she was gonna give me a boost when a wave came by (since none of us knew how to paddle into waves yet, you know). anyways, a group of girls came into the water kinda off to our left a little and abby says "here, i'm gonna aim you at these girls and maybe you can get a date." it was really funny and made me think "well, i didn't even have to say anything about not having a girlfriend. i guess i just have "I'M SINGLE!!!" written on my forehead."

honestly, there were a couple of girls there i wish i would've talked to. you know how when you walk by someone you're attracted to in the mall or whatever and you look back to see if they look back at you? it was kinda like that at the beach...oh well.

i called Katie-Lynn today. our school is getting a new band director and one of the school secretaries called a few of my friends to come in and help interview three band directors that are interested in taking the spot. i'm so jealous. i really wish i could've been home, i might've been called to go and help interview. :( oh well. anyways, Katie-Lynn was called and she's gonna go and i talked to her about that for a while. she wanted me to help her think of some questions to ask, but i wasn't much help. we ended up talking for a couple of hours about stuff from band to friends to memories to next year (a Senior...i still can't believe it's already that time) to college and careers. it was a really cool conversation. i'm glad i have friends like her to talk to about stuff like that.

although...it really made me wanna go home. :( i miss all of my friends, but i think a lot of them will be gone on trips by the time i get back, which sucks. either way, i'll be going to Atlanta for a drum corps show the friday after i get back, which doesn't suck. i'm getting really excited. i hope my ticket gets home soon.

sky, you got me hooked on this song. i downloaded it and recognized it when i started listening to it. i also downloaded This Bitter Pill. i used to have this song, but i cleared all of my mp3s a long time ago and never downloaded it again. it's really sad...his voice cracks a lot towards the end like he's starting to cry. :(

i think i'm gonna make a CD before i leave with some songs that'll remind me of being here. i really like Florida...i'm definitely gonna miss it when i leave.

i just wish i KNEW PEOPLE HERE!!! every day i struggle to find something to keep my mind occupied. it's getting kinda hard. :(

well, that's about it...this is actually one of my longer entries and it's completely random. maybe i should do this more often.

Subject:surfing lessons and soreness (take 2)
Time:11:51 pm.
Mood: bored.
well, i was in the middle of updating this and started zoning out or something, so i started doing other stuff on this browser and i lost what all i had typed. :( so i'll try again. it'll be more brief this time.

woke up about 8:00am to go to surfing lessons and we got there around 9:15. no one was at the pavilion yet, but a few minutes later the instructor's got there, John and Abby. they were really cool and were really patient with everyone, so that was good. there were only a few people with the whole lesson, but no one really around my age. well, i mean, there were a lot of girls my age at the beach, but yeah, that's completely different. :P

so we practiced pop-ups today, which is timing when you need to actually get up from laying down on your board to ride the waves. it's so much harder than i was expecting it to be. but it was still a lot of fun. Abby mentioned how people are usually exhausted before the end of the lesson, but i was fine the whole time.

then i got home...after i got a shower and put some lotion on a couple of burns, i went straight to bed for like...4 hours. haha. i was really tired and now i'm kinda sore in some places, but i'm pretty good. i'd definitely be dead if i went again for a lesson tomorrow, so i'm gonna hold up and wait until Tuesday again. i know i definitely wanna go again, but it depends on if my dad decides to just buy a beat up long board so we can all go whenever. it'd save money...but i really don't know all of the basics yet, which i'd probably learn in just one lesson. i caught on pretty quick, so if it's just me or two other people, i might be able to move on to tougher stuff after lunch break or something. i don't know. either way, i'll still be having fun and hey, it's the beach. you can't complain.

but yeah, i definitely had a ton of fun. i'm really glad i went. surfing is definitely something you can get addicted to, seriously. it's crazy to think how John and Abby give lessons every. day. how awesome would that be?

been kinda thinking today...which is fine. i like thinking about stuff, but sometimes it gets a person down, you know? but hey, that's how you grow as a person, i guess...

This may be the last time that I write for long.
Can you hear me smiling when I sing this song...for you...
And only you...

Will need me now?
You'll find a way somehow...
You want it, too...
I want it, too...


the two best parts of the song. awesome.

Current hair: like my LJ picture thing, only dry, not wet.

Current clothes: my shirt from The Varsity, GAP boxers, awesome pair of Arizona Jeans (they look expensive, but they weren't!)

Current longing: my friends/a girl i can call my own(not property wise...bah, you know what i mean)

Current desktop picture: my dad's computer is just a blank black background, but mine at home is of a guy breaking out of captivity. kinda hard to explain, i'd have to show you.

Current worry: a couple of things really. 1) will i like surfing lessons and if i do, do i want to let my dad spend the money for me to go more than once? 2) is my Kennesaw ticket gonna be sent to my house or my dad's, and if to my dad's, will it get from there to my house on time?

Current favorite article of clothing: ummm...either my board shorts, "i heart sloths" shirt, or my really worn shorts with the rips and holes.

Favorite physical feature of the opposite sex: it's a toss up between eyes and hair. eyes because i always get chills making eye contact with girls with nice eyes and hair because it's nice to run your hands through. *sigh* i miss that...:(

Last CD that you listened to: either my mixed CD or MxPx - Before & Everything After

Favorite place to be: though Sam's answer of "in any loving embrace" was really good, i'd have to say hanging out with my friends is mine

Time you wake up in the morning: anywhere from 10:00am - 12:30pm usually. during the summer/weekend anyway.

Current favorite word/saying: i'm stealing Dusty's of either "You win some, you lose some." or "The bad things in life make the good things better."

What is the first thing you think when you wake in the morning? "what time is it?"

How many rings before you answer? however many rings before the caller ID says who it is.

Future daughter's name: i haven't really thought about this...hmmm...i want an original name. something cool. my friend knows a girl named Sabra, which is pretty cool to me.

Future son's name: not to copy you Sam, but when i read Genesis and saw Asher, i thought it was a really cool name.

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? nope...sometimes, i sleep hugging a pillow though. does that count?

If you could have any job you wanted, what would it be? a job that i could go to everyday and never get tired of. i think Aerospace Engineering would be like that.

If you could change anything about yourself what would that be? some things from my past..some past decisions (or lack thereof) on some things. that's about it.

Who do you really hate? really hate? nothing. dislike? i really don't know until it comes across me. i'm not one for grudges or anything really. i guess i dislike hypocracy and lying, but i've done both, so it doesn't really mean much i guess. OH, i REALLY DISLIKE guys mistreating girls. ugh, that makes me so mad.

Favorite number: my lucky number is 3, so i guess 3.

Been In Love: hard to say sometimes...somedays i think i have, some days i don't think so.

Do You Have A Job? Job? yeah, i bag groceries for $5.75 an hour. not bad for starting pay.

Do You Like Being Around People? of course, i'm happiest around people.

Are you for world peace? i don't know...it'll never happen, i know that much. not in this world, anyway.

Do You Have A "Type" Of Person You Always Go After? girls that like to have fun with a guy that will make them happy. it's so strange, girls say that they want a guy that they can have fun with and make them happy, but i've found so few. where are they all?

Want Someone You Don't Have Right Now? oh yeah. and you know what sucks the most? i have no idea who that someone is.

Are You Lonely Right Now? with the last couple of questions and the fact that i can't hang out with my friends and the song i'm listening to, yeah...i kind of am. :-/

and that's it...i started this at...8:04pm. wow, it's 9:46 now. that took forever.

...was an excellent movie. if anyone like Tim Burton, then you probably have already seen this movie. if not, you'll really like it.

heck even if you don't like Tim Burton or you don't even know who he is, you should rent the movie or whatever and watch it. it's 2 hours long, but it really doesn't seem like it.

hmmm...not really sure what i'm doing this weekend. i might do surfing lesson(s?) and i think we're going to the beach. i hope so anyway, i'm long overdue to see the ocean.

well, that's about it for now...i guess. later.

Subject:Sea World and Blockbuster (what a pair)
Time:7:53 pm.
Mood: temperature wise..or maybe..:P.
today was Sea World! and it was pretty cool. all of the dolphins and manatees had marks all over themselves though, i felt so bad for them. i didn't get to touch anything, which was pretty disappointing, but i hadn't really thought about it until now. i could've touched a dolphin or a sting ray i guess, but that's fine. oh man, the sting ray tank smelled SO. BAD. it was disgusting. we walked by it like 5 times too, i thought i was gonna get sick. we washed the whole Shamu thing, which was pretty cool. everyone got wet but, of course, the people around us. which sucked. it had to be atleast 90 degrees all day. we also got to see a whole bunch of penguins. ha, there were so cool. my favorite part though, by far, was Kraken. it was one of the best rollercoaster's i've ever been on. i don't understand why it's not in Islands of Adventure though with the Atlantis/Poseidon area, though. it seems like it'd be more fitting there. but either way, it was awesome. it wasn't all that short either, and it seemed to go a lot faster than most rollercoasters. the first drop was one of the better ones i've experienced.

after we got home, my step-mom really wanted to see a movie, so i went to Blockbuster and rented Big Fish. i don't know much about it or whether it's good or not, so i guess i'll have to wait and find out when i watch it tonight. i also rented Need for Speed: Underground (FINALLY!). they actually had it this time. when i went up to the counter, the guy started freaking out and asking me where i was at in Underground mode and what kind of car i was racing with, etc. then another guy in the back joined in and started talking about his "fully-loaded" Mitsubishi Eclipse and the like. then a customer started talking about a completely different game and the guys behind the counter looked at him like they were thinking "Dude...that game sucks."

and yeah, that's my day so far. i got up at 8:30am and we didn't leave until around 10:30am, which was almost 3 hours later than we were shooting for. but it all worked out well in the end. we were definitely ready to come home.

i'll probably update after Big Fish. it was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Original Score" so the music must be really good. that's a plus!

Mood: mellow.
well, not a lot happened today...i mean, it kinda did, but anyway.

i saw Shrek 2. it was really funny in some parts. i guess i liked it a little more than i liked the first one, which is good. sequels usually SUCK.

and i finished The Last Samurai a few minutes ago. the ending is really sad. :( but it was an incredibly awesome movie. i wish i could see more good movies like that all the time. it was kind of bloody in some parts, kinda like Troy, but it was completely bearable.

tomorrow is Sea World. AHH! i don't know what to think really, i hope it's not way geared towards younger kids. i still think it'll be fun though.

oh, before i came to my dad's, he said that there was an article in the paper about taking surfing lessons in Ft. Myers. we called the place and 1 lesson is $130. 130. Dollars. yikes. my dad said i could still go though, so i think i might. he even said i could do the whole training thing, which is 5 lessons for $500. 500. Dollars. holy cow. i don't think i'm gonna do all 5 though. i think one is good enough for now, and if i decide i really like it, i'll see about going another time or two. i just wish it weren't so much money. :( i guess it doesn't really matter since i'm not paying for it, but still...i don't want my dad to spend a lot of money on me. not really sure why, but i just don't. anyways, the lessons are from 9:30am until 2:00/2:30pm. really long lessons.

ummm...that's about it, i guess. we have to leave at 8:00am tomorrow morning, so i might go to bed soon. i dunno.

Time:11:04 pm.
Mood: sore.
well, i'm not done with The Last Samurai, but the first 105 minutes is totally excellent. it's got a great story line and the music is really captivating, too. i'm not gonna finish it tonight, but i will tomorrow.

other than that, i haven't really done much today. i'm kind of sore from working out, but after tomorrow i think i'll be alright. i think we're going to the beach tomorrow, but i'm not sure. i know we're definitely going on Friday because dad has a federal holiday on that day because of Ronald Reagan's death. and we're going to Sea World on Thursday! i'm kind of excited for that. they have a rollercoaster there that looks really cool, Kraken. so we'll see what happens.

well..i'm off to read some journals.
