Wake up

In my life, I love you more

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

May The Road Rise to Meet You...

Thus, we have reached the end.

As of tommorow I will be officially done with high school. Forever. Oh man.

It's been a while since my last update (March!?) so I'll fill anyone who still reads this in on some things:

- I found out, (on my birthday no less) that I made it into Eastman! (See my last post) But, after a long time considering I chose Ithaca. I got a really awesome scholarship and I love the piano professor. So that's settled. But it's still nice to say that I got in =D

- We did Little Shop of Horrors for our Spring musical and I got the lead! That in itself was an amazing experience.

- Had our last two concerts of the year this week. Very sad and emotional...but life continues.

-Graduation is now less than two weeks away. Oh my god.

And that's pretty much what has happened in the last few months. I can't believe that the time is already come to leave...and never come back to the same people again. But at the same time...it's one of the most liberating feelings ever. To finally be free...that's what I've wanted for so long. And now it's here, and I'm ready for it.

I'm much better at updating my facebook, if anyone would care to add me, you can find me under Mikey Wade in the Rome Free Academy and/or Ithaca College networks. And if you don't have a facebook, you should totally go get one. It's amazing.

But Livejournal is always good when you need to vent. And that's exactly what needed to happen here. I hope that (if I do still have friends on livejournal) that you're all well and good =]

12 days til Graduation... =D

Procrastination, thy name is Mikey

well, not as long as it COULD have been. =]

So, here I am once again. I wish I could actually bring myself to update this more often, but the simple combination of how utterly boring my life is and the fact that i'm a lazy, lazy person create the logical solution. ie: no updates.

oh well, life goes on. =] So, i've been getting acceptance letters like Harry Potter, and it's great. I have to make a decision, and it's hard. My top three choices are Potsdam (Crane School of Music), Ithaca, and Eastman.


Crane: I already have tons of friends there. Actually, already can have a roomate if I want. They just completely remodeled their practice rooms with 141-brand new Steinways...amazing. Good reputation, nice town. Pretty affordable tuition.

Ithaca: Beautiful campus, and facilities. Awesome piano professors. Equally as reputable. Job opportunity already. Good food, as well as the best city/town.

Eastman: Conservatory. More friends in Rochester. Second to none professors, amazing classes. Competetive (i can be competetive, and I think it works for motivation sometimes.)


Crane: Completely in the middle of nowhere. Colder than a witch's teat. A lot of extra work to switch into the track of study that I want.

Ithaca: Expensive. No friends at all.

Eastman: Ridiculously competetive, to the point where I worry that I will have to go outside the school to find friends. Kids there can be crazy. Also, most expensive.


So that's my list, I guess. I'll say that I really, really love Ithaca. Crane also has a nice feeling in my stomach. But Eastman is simply amazing. I still haven't gotten rejected/accepted there yet, so maybe i shouldn't have included it. It looks like a 50/50 to me, but everyone else is like "psh, you're going to get in." I'm not so sure. 1200 applicants a year...they accept 140 undergrads. ridiculous.

School's going to be winding down soon. February flew by without a second glance, and I think March is bascially going to be the same way.

I can't wait for my birthday, next month!! =D

And now i'll go do that Eeeenglish homework. wish me luck.

yay senior year!

Wow, it's been so long since i updated. Livejournal's gotten way sweeter since then. blah what to say

I'm a SENIOR now, which is crazy...cause i remember when I made this journal when I was a freshman. And I used to post stuff crazy like every day.

when life was interesting, right? =P

Anyways, senior year is pretty awesome. I have no complaints really...my schedule is as follows:

1) AP Literature
2) Concert Choir
3) PE.
4) MVCC Government
6) Adv. Sociology
7) Spanish V
8) Concert Band
9) Symphonic Orchestra

I'm such a nerd for posting that stuff. But oh well. In case you ever want to steal me from school you know when to do it.

Life's been cool lately. My friend Anna came back from college this weekend and it was really nice to see her again. I miss all of my ex-senior friends. Most of them really like it, but then a couple are homesick. I wonder if i'll be homesick.

Speaking of college, I've started filling out applications and the whole 5719 yards. I am applying to:
SUNY Potsdam & Fredonia
College of St. Rose
Ithaca College
Nazareth College
Eastman School of Music

If anyone is applying to any of those, totally give me a shout.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower is my new favorite book. I can't stress how bad I wish for you all to read it (if you haven't been exposed to it's amazing already, that is).

Blah, nothing profound tonight. Oh well. Maybe next time. =]
