Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote a journal entry. So you guys may have noticed that even though I will occationally fave or comment on something, I haven't been that active lately. Well, after Disney (which was AMAZING, by the way, I could rant all night about it but I won't), I didn't really have much of a break from work. I had time to sleep the night I got back and into the next day, but that Monday after I was right back at school That first week back, let me tell you...I got more and more tired as each day went on. Everything is a bit of a blur since to be honest. The jazz band, symphonic band, percussion ensemble, and wind ensemble was all busy getting ready for the annual Collage Concert. I only just got back from the last concert tonight. I play trumpet in the jazz band and wind ensemble, both being the audition-only bands (symphonic anyone can join, and percussion ensemble is obviously percussionists only).
I feel like I should explain Collage to you guys. Basically, it's comprised of three concerts for three nights, each concert comprising of so many different acts. We have part one with so many acts, intermission, then part two. The acts include both band and choir performances, plus small acts that people auditioned for. It's limited to choir and band students, but it's tons of fun And at the end, for the finale, all of the band and choir kids get together for a final song. It's the same one every year, Battle Hymn of the Republic.
I am feeling so bittersweet right now because I only have three more weeks of high school, and the last of my "final times" doing this or that are all coming at me at once. The band stuff I will miss the most. It's been a huge part of my life sinch sixth grade, even more so since Freshman year. I made so many memories, and now the last ones will be upon me before I know it. Nostalgia is like, my best friend right now, because it keeps popping up at me...
Anyway, sorry, I'm going off tangent again, I just wanted to thank you guys for still sticking with me And I promise, once I graduate on May 23rd, I will be getting all my art stuff taken care of My art trade with , chapter thirteen of One of Us, and the 2000+ pageviews thank-you piece(s). Don't worry, I haven't forgotten (far from it), I've just been so busy I hardly ever have time for art (apart from the occational doodle in the middle of class...shh...it's our secret!!). I've been feeling extremely guilty for not putting up anything new in nearly a month...over a month if I don't count my application. It's not that I don't want to put stuff up, I just can't find any time to.
Maybe I can post a giant piece comprising of the little doodles/sketches I've been able to do? Would you guys look at it if I did?
Hope you guys have been doing good, and aren't too upset at my lack of putting stuff up, and *fingers crossed* I should be able to get back in the swing of things once I'm done with school!
Thanks for reading-
