Taking things a day at a time

"I'll keep you my dirty little secret"

Last night I played Rock Band for the first time, and "Dirty Little Secret" was one of the songs I played. I only played the drums, which is a lot easier than the guitar. That's for sure.

The first week of school was tiring. I got way too cozy with going to school for only two days last semester. So now going four days is just, real tiring. I also dropped math, so I only have two classes, again. It's a waste, I admit it. Because I'm barely getting any credits out of the way. But seriously, that math class was so lame. Fractions?! I still can't get over that. Hopefully I'll place into math 100 when I retake the placement test.

From my two classes, I kinda have a lot of homework to do this weekend. For Hawaiian we have a test on Monday already, with a shitload of vocab words and phrases we need to know. Also, we have to memorize this dialogue piece and we have to say it in front of the class with a partner. Then for art we gotta read two chapters and then draw a flower with oil pastels. That's gonna take a while, just because I'm finicky with my art. And oil pastels get real messy. :/ No bueno.

I'm thinking of rearranging my room. Partially because I'm thinking about what I would be doing if I was returning to Linfield. I'd be moving into my dorm/apartment right about now and getting situated and settling in. I fucking miss that. God. So I kinda wanna do that with my room, change things up a bit. It's been the same way since I moved into my current room, which was sophomore year of high school.

I just love furniture and decor stuff. I mean, don't you? It's exciting. Looking around at new stuff, decorating your walls and buying matching sets of sheets and stuff. Then organizing. OH, ORGANIZINGGG!! I LOVE IT! Just for fun, I went looking at some furniture sites and found pictures of pieces and room designs I like.

I like the bookshelf around the head of the bed.

This is a pretty cool vanity set.

All the shelf space is awesome in this bedroom design. I have a lot of stuff.

If I could have this exact bedroom set up, I would take it. It's also got purple in the color scheme. Bonus!

But of course, no money, no space. At the very least I want to paint my walls. But I'd have to put the primer on the wall. Then put the coats of pain on. I mean, it'd be worth it in the long run, but it's expensive. And I'd have to find the time to do that.

Meh. Anyways, I'm off to the Greek Festival. Kinda pissed because mom wanted Mika and me to wait until Steven was done with work so they could go. Like I fucking care. I would've been fine catching the bus, but noooooo. We had to wait for that douche bag. And I KNOW that they're gonna expect my dad to pay for them. Assholes. Whatev.

I really like the blue polka dotted bedroom. I pretty much like everything about it. I would take that bedroom just the way it is. It would be cooler in Rainbow... but I like it none the less.

I love IKEA! For reason like that. I got a new desk from IKEA... it's tiny, but I like it. A lot. I love the bedroom sets from there. I always look when I am there, even though I won't be buying that kind of stuff.

I love organizing. Especially when it comes to things like school stuff. I have to say, sometimes I wish I still lived in the dorm. I miss setting everything up and getting your room the way you like it. Oh well... At least Ben said I could hang up all my posters in the office... so that's a bonus.

So, what's the greek festival?

Oh... P.S. I kinda figured people would still figure out who I meant, but I felt bad naming names and stuff. I don't figure you or anyone else reading my blog will say anything... I am just frustrated with all that.

I really like rock band. I played with Steven. So, I am pretty excited about that!

And I love Jonai! That is tooo funny. Yes, typical Disney. But at least they were famous before the tv show. And I still think they are cute :)

Yesterday is the only Beatles song I can play on the piano too lol.

The greek festival sounds really cool. I love good greek food. That would be really cool to go and see. I would be all over that! That's also really cool that you and your family goes to it every year! My mom and I have stuff that we used to do...

Yeah, you will have to take a picture of your shirt. I would like to see it.

I think it was smart dropping the class and just trying again with the placement test. At least you didn't just settle.

Yeah, who knows, I might like my religion class...I'm hoping I like it, it would make it a lot easier to sit through I'm sure. It's 4 days a week!

I'll definitely let you know how auditions go. We met one of the freshman today. His name is Chris, he seems pretty cool.

I love Amber Tamblyn. I've only ever seen the first few episodes of Joan of Arcadia. I actually saw that she had a book coming out. I'm thinking of buying it.

What kind of art project do you have to do? Oil pastels are messy, but they're fun.

Anyhoo, I've always LOVED looking at room decorations and whatnot. I've always wanted to have the ability to paint my room whenever and however I want. And I love all the bright colors. The shelves would be so awesome to have as well.

How was the Greek festival?
