busy busy day...

I've got college visits to two schools today, Columbia and Roosevelt, we were going to be taking in the train but that's turned into driving.  Joy.  I love the train.  Especially being able to take it into Chicago.  I love New York City, don't get me wrong, but once a Chicago Girl always a Chicago Girl.

Been listening to some good new music, specifically the Naive Thieves and Manchester Orchestra, working on some more art pieces.  They're not much to look at, but it's good practice.  NT is a great band, embodying all the things we like about Hawaii without being overly cheesy or hokey or sounding like nevershoutnever!, whom I dislike greatly.  Manchester Orchestra, who recently put out Mean Everything to Nothing and is easily the best album of the year, is an excellent band hailing from Atlanta, Georgia.  Songs "100 Dollars" "She Found A Love" "Slow To Learn" "Wolves at Night" "Shake it Out" "Girl With Broken Wings" "Play it Again Sam! You Don't Have Any Feathers" "La-Di-Da" "Golden Ticket" are being heavily replayed. 

Also, if I'm going to jam to anything, it's going to be the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Theme Song" by Nerf Herder.  I am a major ninties kid. 

Kinda weird when you think about it, I prefer ninties music and style while my sister loves the eighties.  And gay black men, but that's a whole 'nother story.

Worked on cleaning out some of my grandparents stuff, took a buncha their records, including classics like Sunny and Cher, and Colonel Sander's Christmas.  I'm not even making that up.  And in addition to such timeless classics as that, they also had over forty records with the words "German", "polka" or "Polish" in the title.  If I count the ones with Christmas, it's over 100. 

I've picked out my monologue for the audition, now I just have to memorize it.  Shouldn't be too hard considering it's smaller than my first one.  But telling myself I'm going to memorize it has distracted me from doing any of my summer work, not that I would be doing it anyway.  I'm a terrible procrastinator.

Still getting ear-raped by my mom about the job hunt.  Course now she tells me she could have gotten me an internship at her office for 18$/hour.  Thanks.  But I'm going to be cut off/made to pay my cellphone bill when I turn 18 this year, which isn't unreasonable, so I'll be without a phone (which would be even more devastating if I did tell her I want a new iPhone for my birthday as I would just have to let it run out.) coming this school year, when I plan to be doing all this extracurricular stuffs.  Nice.  So, once again, I fail at life; why can't I just get a fucking job and be done with it?  Because I'm a rather useless person with all the wrong cards.  Check my previous entries, I don't want to depress myself again.

Other than that, life is okay.  Gotta drive the family to Iowa so my mom can drag us all around for her reunions.  I don't really care, I just want to drive for extended periods of time with my music going. 

Suddenly more unhappy then when I started this post,
