I'm going to post this publicly because I have very strong feelings about this.

On Christmas Eve, I discovered that my mom's side of the family is staunchly conservative.  And I mean, the "I will only vote Republican no matter what" type of people.  When I told my aunt that I voted for Obama she said something to the equivalent of "OMG WE'RE ALL GOING TO HELL, THANKS" and I got really pissed off.  In addition, I know a few other people who are just blinded by stupidity--some of whom believe that Obama is an Arab (and if he is--what difference does it make? I'm freaking Lebanese and I don't fit the stereotype perpetuated by other people :P), or a socialist, or anti-American.  It's scary what people will believe just by listening to people who lie or speculate on the news everyday.  As a people we have the duty to seek the truth in these things--and some people just simply don't.  They are prejudiced and ignorant, and always will be.

Seriously, and I truly mean this, if you aren't going to support the new president, and are simply going to sit around blasting him without even giving him a chance (I mean for crying out loud, he hasn't even been in office yet), then get the fuck out of this country.  Really, pack up your shit and just leave.  It's one-sided assholes like you that make this country worse off.  Why would you want Obama to do poorly?  To just blast him some more and pander to the far right?  You would honestly rather have this country go down the shitter for yourselves?  It's just dumb. 

Partisanship goes nowhere.  It solves nothing.  And trust me, if McCain was elected, I would be saying the same damn thing. 

Yes, I am a Democrat, more fiscally than socially, and I've taken careful thought into what I believe.  But if a Republican comes along this next election with a plan that I agree with and support, then I'll vote for him or her.  I simply just didn't see that this election from the Republicans.

And trust me, we could go on with this all day.  But it's too late--America has already picked a president, and all we can do is pray and wish him well.

Sorry, I just felt like I'd rant on this because it kept popping up.  It's amazing how some people are so ignorant.

Wow, does anyone read this anymore?

It turns out that I'm not going to be back in Dublin this summer.  I will be taking summer classes, practicing my ass off (I WILL make orchestra next year, and no one is going to pull me back), and hopefully working.

Who knows though, I may be in Dublin for a few days, depending on how things work out.  If not, though, you know where I'll be.

If you want to keep tabs on me, see my other blog.

Well, it's good to be home.

While I've been bored a lot, I've managed to make good use of my time by practicing (I think I've figured out a way to make my reeds not suck anymore), transcribing music (I'm arranging a version of Sinatra's "It Was a Very Good Year" for my grandpa's 90th birthday...my dad is singing O_o), and enjoying not having any papers to do or any preppy people to put up with.  It's nice.

How about you?

It's official.  I just can't enjoy life anymore.

I go back tomorrow.  And you know what kills me?

I'M FUCKING SICK!  Haha, wow this sucks.  I came home sick and now I'm going back sick.  And it's because certain people in our house can't cover their mouths when expelling germs.  In other words, I will be living on dayquil/nyquil until however long it takes to get this damn virus out of my system.

My audition is on Saturday in the afternoon.  Wish me luck, and hope that I don't suck because I'm sick.

More news to come later, when I'm all moved in and such.  Hopefully I'll be getting a job at the music library!  :)

Less than 2 weeks.  You have no clue how psyched I am...and incredibly nervous at the same time.

Got my A clarinet fixed, and it plays much better than before.  Auditions are coming up, which I feel somewhat ready for...but I'm also scared shitless, because we have six grads coming in this year.  Basically, I can't afford to suck.

My little sister gave me her school essays to edit.  As much as I appreciate the effort, just looking at them makes me want to puke.  I don't know where to begin.  *busts out red pen*

Certain women who are obsessed with one of my friends need to quit acting like whores and get over themselves (not directed at anyone reading this).  I will not put up with that shit this year.

This year is going to be a lot better...I'm living with a roommate that I can trust and tolerate, I'm taking a lot of classes that I like this quarter, my clarinet playing is getting better, and...I just can't wait for it all to begin. 

Mm, string music.

Not much going on.  Home is boring as usual.

Going to Tuttle tomorrow...w00t for $50 gift cards.

Gah...why is it that whenever I take my clarinets to get repaired, there's always some bullshit that comes with it?  I'm not waiting 3 weeks for you to do a 25 minute job.  Fuck you Colonial Music, I'd rather take it to another professional who won't make me wait a century.

A little less than a month to go...

Wow.  I really hate being in Dublin.

My life has no direction right now.  I don't fit in with any group of people, I couldn't get a job, and I just stay at home, practice and read all day.  And when I do get invited to things, I find it hard to say or do anything because they're people I don't see on a constant basis.

I don't know.  Maybe I should be a hermit when I grow up.  It wouldn't be far off from what I feel like right now.

Heh.  Never mind.

For some reason, it always takes me a long time to figure out that people really do care. 

I know that one of my biggest fears in life is being alone, but all I have to do is look around and see that I'm not.

If certain people forget the fact that it's my birthday today, who cares.  I have plenty of other people that care.

Fuck Harry Potter.  I'm 19 today, and that's all that matters to me.

Hasn't been updated in three weeks?  What?

In Toledo with family right now, will be back tomorrow

Dreading my wisdom teeth removal and my clarinet playing hiatus

Just...really not liking life too much right now.  Everything is moving really slowly again.  I'd pick Cincinnati over Dublin anyday.

Later.
