I am stressin out because I just got pulled over in Indiana for speeding which is bad enough, then I was told my liscence was suspended in ky and I wasn't allowed to drive! I held it together through the ticket part but when he said that I broke down! after about 5 minutes of absolute bawling on my end he looks at me and goes "I'm a very busy cop and I need to head the other way for about two hours... you're not gonna be there when I get back right?" to which I shook my head and drove off. I'm still shaking!!!! how can my liscence be suspended? I haven't done anything!!! somebody was on my side tonight for sure though!
In keeping with my new years resolution I will update about my American Idol experience...
When I found out that the auditions were going to be in Louisville I considered auditioning knowing that I didnt really have a chance in hell... But I thought about it.
Saturday night I went over to Freedom hall with Amy to check out the line...there wasnt one... so I registered.
I got there Monday morning with Amanda at 4:30am for the auditions, after only having slept for 2 hours the night before. We stood/sat in line outside freedom hall until 8am. I have no idea why we were in line this long and couldnt be inside... we totally could've gotten there at 8 and it wouldn't have mattered.
From 8 to 9am they made us do all the screaming stuff you see on tv during the audition round. for example, we had to film american idol: welcome to louisville ky like 8 times... it was kinda annoying but kinda fun too.
When it was time to actually start the auditions they explained to us how it would work. Basically you would get called by section and they line you up in groups of 4 to perform for the producers. if you get a "golden ticket" at this round you go on to audition in september in front of the famed simon, paula, and randy.
there were tons of rumors going around like you only got ten seconds to sing... that each judge booth was looking for something different (i.e. if you were actually good, if you were goofy, if you were really bad, ect.) and if you didnt fit that you didnt get through... booth number 12 never let anyone through... and so on...
at this point in time i had to be at work by 3pm mind you and i was nervous i wouldnt even get the chance to audition.
and then we waited... amanda and i were close to each other in neighboring sections... and i sat with her while we waited
we met some idol hopefuls in line and inside and tried to have conversations with these people.
I met one of those people who swear they are the best, the next american idol, talk huge game, but then cant sing... i thought they didnt actually exist...but they do...
i got a phone call from my boss saying i could come into work at 5 which was great news because it gave me 2 extra hours and the way it was looking i would definately need it!
as we were watching the auditions they were giving out several golden tickets, especially towards the beginning and we felt hopfeul that we might actually have a shot at making it through. but as the day went along the number of golden tickets we saw slowly dwindled
it got to be 3pm and i realizd that i needed to leave at like 4:30 to make it to work by 5 and the odds werent looking that great. i was beginning to think i had wasted a whole day for nothing. then i got the idea to trade tickets with a parent or friend who wasn't auditioning from another section so that i could go in that section... finally i found a willing parent to trade with me and i got to go two sections ahead, which was the break i needed.
in my group of 4 were some interesting voices. one girl was really bad... one was pretty good... and the dude could sing but didnt have a pleasant voice... our judge looked kinda angry and had a british accent, she smiled at me twice and i sang the longest before she cut me off which i guess is a good thing, but overall her attitude did not look promising. no one in my group made it through, which i expected. i hadnt expected to make it the whole time so i really wasnt disappointed unlike others. i knew if it were meant to be then i would have made it. i wasnt upset or surprised or anything like that.
i am really glad that i did it though. it was a fun and exciting experience overall and if it came back to louisville i would probably do it again. i doubt that i would travel any length to audition becaus thats just too much. the experience was much more plesant than louisville idol i must say. and i congratulate anybody that made it through to the next round! it was definitely a fun experience i wont forget anytime soon
Well this story must first start off with saying that I hope that everyone had a better 4th than I did.
First I had to work in the morning which is never fun times, however I had planned a party with a good friend (who never showed up mind you) and I knew that fun times were to be had.
I went and bought food in preparation for a small cook out prior to an evening of drunken shenanigans... due to rain there was no "cook out" but rather a cook in if you will, making burgers and hot dogs on the stove. The food actually turned out pretty good and there were enough people there to have a decent evening.
All was well.
Until someone arrived... lets call her Shanessa...
Well shanessa is..well used to be a pretty good friend of mine until the 4th... when she stole my medication from me... which happened to be Adderall(read the second part of that link to find out more info)...
to say the least I was pretty pissed off... At first I didnt know who would possibly take my meds... then by process of decutive reasoning and a bit of heavy circumstantal evidence I realized it could have only been shanessa. I was pretty upset.
At the time I was so hurt(because a friend would do that to me) and angry(because I had my shit stolen!) that I didnt even know what to do. So I called the police and unfortunately there was not much they could do at the time.
After the police left Shanessa darted for the door like the house was plagued with zombies... at that time those of us left realized that all of our wallets had been cleaned out as well.. cash only of course...
Luckily my adderall was discovered behind the piano (where shanessa had been crouching, coughing, rumaging through her purse not 20 minutes before). I was extremely grateful that my adderall had been recovered but was still pretty upset about everyone elses cash and the fact that it was stolen in the first place.
Lesson learned... Dont invite shanessa over to party anymore... keep purses with you at parties.
what are the odds that you would show up the book i must read for class... history class for that matter, i mean really they must be 1000 to 1 and i picked up that book... grrrr how irritating it is to read your name every 5 minutes but then again its kinda nice... it reminds me of the good ole days ...*le sigh*
Something happened a week ago yesterday that might be the funniest thing in the entire world...
Molly and I (I say "I" but I havent put forth my part yet) bought somewhere around $400.00 worth of meat. Thats right... We have spicy chicken, lemon chicken, regular chicken, chicken fingers, honey dijon chicken, filets, sirloins, tbones, hamburger patties...and I know Im missing some...
Why? You might ask? Well... we both decided that we were getting such a good deal we couldnt pass it up...and we would be able to eat for quite some time... Both of these have turned out to be true so far which makes this really funny thing pretty good...but still absolutely hilarious... Who else could have gotten themselves into this odd situation but us... So now we have a freezer full of delicious meats of which we have been eating every night...and its pretty cool
The mandatory course list post: MWF: 12-1 Music Theory III M: 3-3:30 Piano 6:00-8:30 Social Psychology 8:00-10:00-Choir W: 11-12 Voice Lesson TTh: 9:25-10:40 Abnormal Psychology 12:15-1:30 Western History II 1:40-2:55 US in the World (a social justice class with Bob Lockhart I am sitting in on, thats right no credit)
I also open at the YMCA every Tuesday and Thursday which means 5-8:30am. I have work study MWF 8-11am and I work most nights at rite aid... I am already kinda tired ha!
I got out of bed really late because my alarm clock has broken and I cannot afford a new one at the moment.
I feel sad, because Sarah and Britney are complete bitches. They told everyone I have an STD, just because I slept with both of their boyfriends on Saturday night.
I'm so stoned.
Last night I had to shave my entire body. Apparently, the lice that I caught from Amanda's friend are really hard to get rid of. I look quite strange with no hair and eyebrows. I'd post pictures, but my webcam is broken.
I want to tell the world to get fucked.
I am really annoyed at the assholes who are livejournal spies....keep your damn mouths shut you whore
Today, I got a digital camera! Yes! but i still cant afford an alarm clock
I want to say thanks to the world for absolutely fucking nothing! You all suck. I feel so alone, no one ever reads this journal, or even comments to let me know that I'm not suffering alone. It's cold here, and I want to die, but I cannot figure out how many of you to take with me when I go.
I went to the doctor yesterday, and he said I have bipolar disorder, which makes me different enough to be interesting, but the same as all the other cool people with bipolar disorder.
You should all do this quiz! It's amazingly accurate. You just put in your name and birthday, and it will tell you next week's lottery numbers.
That's enough for now. But I'll leave you with a tip for how to kill a mouse-ka-teer

OK so In the past 48 hours Ive slept 4 of them. Im so exhausted. I hate being behind on things because it never seems to get better. I am behind on homework and projects, sleep for sure, and work study. So Im trying to get all this stuff done and the homework seems to suffer the most..unfortunately, that and class attendance...on that note...I am contemplating skipping my 3rd theory class in the past 2 weeks today....2 mondays in a row and im just soooo tired i need to sleep but i need to go to class too...so i dont know...we'll see....anyways last night there was quite the mayhem going on ...and amid it, i invented 3 new shots! One of which i cant remember...but the other 2 I can, and they are good! The first we named "runts" because it smelled like them....but its a wee vodka, with a wee midori, and hawaiian punch...the other needs a name still...but its a wee vodka, a wee midori, and a wee sweet and sour...its causes this great effect of clear - yellow - green in the shot glass, its awesome looking and tasting! but it still needs name....any ideas?
but anyways instead of being smart and sleeping i did that....sooo once again screwed for sleep but fun times none the less....
anyways this morning i went into the Y to work at 5am as usual...well its lap swim until 8 when an aqua aerobics class comes in, well its around 90* on this pool deck and the water is usually between 84 and 86...so its not a cool area right...well there is a door behind the lifeguard chair that you can open to get a breeze going...so i usually do just this...never opening it enough to effect the water or air temp mind you, so the members shouldnt even notice...and they probably dont...but they see it...so they want it shut because "its cold"....fucking babies, it is not cold, its hot and im sweating and to the point of passing out....its very annoying to deal with this constantly...they get pissed too when we have to turn on the water because "its cold"...yes it comes in cooler than the 86 degree water you are sitting in but its not cold...it drives me nuts....anyways, this guy went off on me this morning because hte door was open...the door is always open! and its not wide open....its cracked enough to flow the air...so like all of 5 inches...now granted the door was open more than 5 inches this morning but had he asked me nicely i would have narrowed the gap...instead he starts yelling at me....i was sooooooooooooooo mad....im still mad...iam not taking that crap from anyone....there was no reason for him to be so rude to me like that...so im talking to the uppers about it later...and if something does not happen through them...something will happen through me....and then there will be real problems...
YAY for good days (and blonde moments if you saw this before edited!) first, I got 3 new suits in the mail, much needed I might add (I hope they arent too big though) Im talking to lots of old friends like out of the blue Im hanging out with new friends, again out of the blue I worked my butt off but didnt fall asleep, and i got a shift "relieved" from me (I just hope Im not in trouble because of hte way i went about it) I feel like Im actually on top of things again for once! I made it to work on time....from owensboro in an hour and a half...ususally 2 hour drive...go me! i got a bunch of new clothes! I had my first test tube shot and it was neat! hehe Now I just need to clean my room.... hehe
So I have to read 2 books, write a paper on one of them, record my voice, and practice piano all before 10am....
as of right now i am half way through one of the two books. and i am exhausted. i hate procrastination it kills me, literally
i have a feeling that the recordings will be put off until later, but i have an idea of what i want to do so that helps.
im just hoping the paper turns out ok because its definately due today.
as for the nose ring, its not too bad, i think its a wee infected though. and im pretty sure that AT has seen it and with no response....so maybe thats good? As for Barry, Im not sure yet, i have my lesson today and we'll see what he says or if he says anything
my aunt is coming to see me thursday and im pretty worried about her seeing it too....damn people who dont like nose piercings lol
