well the band newsletter came in today. There is so much music to be memorized by the time band camp comes around, especially since I am going to be gone for the next 3 weeks. Band camp starts 2 days after I come back, so those days are going to be pretty hectic. On top of all that I still have to read 3 books for English, take notes on them, do a bunch of latin homework, and outline 4 chapters of U.S. History [5 pages of notes each] and answer essay questions for that. Yay AP U.S. History [not]. After all is said and done I might not be able to do band anyway. Darn that block scheduling. They have AP Latin 3 and Band during the same class period. Last year if you didn't participate in marching band you couldn't do symphonic band, and vice versa. I hope I am still able to do marching band, especially after all the work I have put into it. I am a section leader this year and if I can't do band then I will have a big problem. This doesn't just affect me, it affects others too, like Megan, Patrick, Trent, Liz, and others. If the Board of Ed. doesn't change their mind on the scheduling I sure hope Mr. Palmeter does. They also put Calculus in the same period as Band and Latin. Thank god I am only in Pre-Calc this year. This school year should be pretty stressful as far as classes go. I am signed up for AP U.S. HIstory, Honors Geometry/Pre-Calc, AP Latin 3, Honors English 3, Band, Chorus, and I was supposed to take Chemistry at QV. I hope I can fit all of that into my schedule.
Tuesday is drawing nearer and nearer. I am getting really nervous for court. Well, actually I'm more apprehensive. My mom has been lying about alot of serious stuff and I'm nervous she is going to start lying during our hearing. I am so mad at her right now it's unbelievable. Some of the things she has done these past [almost] 2 months are going to take me a long time to forgive. Eventually I hope my mom and I are able to have a better relationship. Although I don't see that happening in the near future, I hope it happens at some point.
Our [megan and I] going away party is tomorrow. Very excited for that. There's going to be about 40 people there and it should be pretty fun. I can't believe I'm leaving in a little over a week. There is still so much to be done. I am going shopping for clothes on tuesday, but there is alot of stuff that I would have never thought of, like my own hand soap. Yale doesn't have hand soap in the bathroom, go figure. I also need to bring my own phone, my own lamp, and a fan. On top of clothes and things like that I am also bringing my guitar and possibly my clarinet. I'm not really sure yet. Yale is going to be so much fun. It's going to be a good de-stresser too. 3 weeks of not having to deal with anyone's crap. =] I love getting mail [hint hint] so people should be cool and send me letters.
One big problem of the summer is financial problems. Even though I have almost a full time job I am having trouble with money. I have to pay car insurance, my cell phone bill, car repairs, and put gas in my car. My car is going to need a new transmission soon and I don't know how much that is going to cost me. I also need to buy clothes since I had to get rid of alot of them. Then there are the random expenses, such as going to the movies or going shopping with people. Then I need to pay for my license test next month. So excited for that! I go for my license on August 13. If all goes well I should be able to drive myself to and from band camp. Also, I don't have to go on the bus anymore =] . That means no more Earl! woo.. Everything is coming up so quickly, but hopefully all will go well.
