I think these yearly updates are good for me. :)
Hello again, livejournal. We've been estranged for some time, I see...but you're still as welcoming as the first day I met you. With your friend's pages and enchanting profiles, who wouldn't love you? :P
Sadly enough, me. It's been far far too long since I last updated! Here is my life from where I left off!!
-I graduated high school! It was crazy windy, but it was joyous none the less. I would have to say singing the alma mater was life changing, and just getting that diploma. Finally. hah!
-Then, I had an amazing summer of adventures. I was in Seussical and Anything Goes at the Capitol Theatre in Rome, where I partook as a terrifying lion and tap-dancing sailor, respectively. Kayla and Greg (besties) were in it with me, we had a rockin' time. :) We also took a trip to NYC before me and Greg left for college, to see Spring Awakening. It was incredible, to say the least.
-Enter college!! College in itself is an experience. I've met so many crazy, interesting, entertaining, wonderful people. It's funny, you leave from home and you miss your friends from home and your family...but come the end of this year, I miss my friends from school a ridiculous amount. It's kind of like Ithaca is my home, too, y'know? I had many ups- meeting all these awesome people, focusing on music entirely, and being inspired by my professors to give way more musically than I ever had before. At the same time, there were the downs, when what I gave wasn't enough, or I had a tiff with a friend, or when I was simply feeling alone- but both the ups and downs I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. I can feel the pulse of my life- and that's amazing.
Coming home, I wonder how much I've changed as a person. Because my friends from home definitely have. And they're not bad changes at all- they're just changes. It's kind of like a very familiar jigsaw puzzle, where you have only one piece left to put in- thing is, the piece you have doesn't fit. You've got almost the entire picture, but it's still not entirely there. At least, not yet. I have a feeling with a little more time this summer things should start to be a little more of the same though. :)
At the moment, I'm a little pensive. Like I said before, I miss my friends from school terribly. :( Especially ones who I've only recently gotten to be friends with...
I want to just live LIFE with them for a while.
I want to experience things that I haven't gotten to experience with them yet, but I'm stuck in a house miles away from where they live. I want to watch stars with them, or go lay in the sun and talk about life, about dreams, about anything really that could bring me closer to them. It's rough feeling that way and not being able to do anything about it. I still love my friends here, but part of me still wants for the others...I would love to just put them all on an island together, so I could live with them all at once. That would be glorious. hah!
I've also had fleeting thoughts about why exactly I wanted to go into music- but then I realize that there's no way I could do anything else and still feel satisfied. I think one of my greatest fears is that I will forget that feeling. The feeling of being moved so much by music that I simply can't think of anything else worthwhile. Not that there isn't anything more worthwhile in life, because there ARE other things...I just place music very highly on that list. :P
ahhhh, well, a ride is here for me. HOPEFULLY, it won't be another year before I type again...but if it is, I'm sure I'll have a lot more to say. Much love to anyone who is reading <3 <3
