Yay! Lotsa stuff to talk about.

First, the results of my audition are in, and I made it! Woo! I'm rather amazed because my audition went SHIT.... I got so nervous I was shaking and screwed up the final movement of my solo, then couldn't find my note to restart it for a good few moments, then finally found it and finished it. Then sight-reading... yeah there's a thing called a key-signature, right? Well I forgot ALLLL about that and started playing. Mr. Chunn was like, "Ok hang on... I think if you'll look at the key signature you'll like the piece better." Then he put a piece in 6/8 time in front of me and there were lots of 16th notes in it... and my brain was panicing so badly that I really couldn't play it. He put a different 6/8 piece in front of me and I could play that, so he told me to go back and I was like "Uhm... I really don't know how to count that...." And he was like "Well we can teach you that." I left the audition thinking that photography might not be so bad after all... but then I got the letter saying I made it. Yay for me! Now I'm just nervous because they were obviously banking on something, and for the life of me I can't think of what.

In other news I had a job interview and thought it went great, expect I havn't heard anything in a week. I'm planning on calling tomorrow to see...

And in further news, I had an eventful weekend, cuz Saturday was the Unofficial Beta Psi goes to Mongolian BBQ trip, and from there I went to [personal profile] soulless_lover 's mom's house to visit her. She's still in a bunch of pain, but the surgery went well and did what it was supposed to. I gave her a wee little devil ducky I found, and we watched the Chronicals of Narnia with her niece. It was a good film in the way of Edmund=Drake, but I felt SO cheated by all the damn Christian imagery. *sigh for that* Other than that I really liked it and we had a good time watching it. After that we talked for a while, and then it was getting late so I drove back home. 

A storm woke me up at 6:30 am, and so I decided to get an early start on my single person roadtrip to [profile] pet_23 's house. It's so far the farthest I've driven on my own, and it wasn't so bad on the way there. The sun was out and it was really rather fun. I felt like I had freedom to just the open road taking me anywhere I wanted to go. When I got to her house she introduced me to Supernatural. Yeah. I'm OBSESSED now. Not to say I'm done with Buffy/Angel, FAR from it, but the appeal of Dean and Sammy... mmmmmmmmmmmm. We watched 15 episodes of it, ending at 1:30am when I got there at about 12:30pm.... with a short break to go and get new bowls for her doggy from Wal-Mart... in which we were both slightly tired and unable to speak properly... and came up with a wonderful new word for "evil". "DARRGG!!!" I don't even remember how it came about, but Darg became the new catchphrase of the weekend.

Darg. adj. meaning: evil. "Dean was all DARG in Skin and he was HAWT."

The next day we got up and went out to eat for a while before coming back and watching the remaining episodes... and Hell House is my favourite so far, just because of the pranks. Though I'd have to rate Home really high up there, as well as Something Wicked, cuz Home was gutwrenching, and Something Wicked was full of Dean angst. Dean's my favourite now, though I can't say I don't love Sammy, but Dean's personality is so much better. *hides from Pet* He's just... hot. Plus the fact that Jensen and Christian Kane are RL friends makes my insides go melty. Sooo then we started burning DVDs for me because Pet's just awesome like that, and spent the rest of the night talking about naughty-wrong-lustful wincest fantasies.... and I got beaten by a pillow cuz I couldn't stop from helping Pet's "non"wrong thoughts become wrong. Heh heh heh. So then we finally fell asleep and I had to leave by 1:30pm, so I woke up early and packed, before Pet woke up and we said goodbye. 

Driving back at 80 mph in pouring down rain through Pennsylvania's mountains sucks. I don't think I could have done it if it had been night, because I could barely seen anything half the time, and I freaked myself out twice going too fast around a curve. Then I started channeling some Dean, and relaxed. Maybe if I'd been in a '67 Chevy Impala I could have relaxed further..... but we won't go into carlust. 

Annnnyway. Yeah. Thursdays, 9pm. Watch it. Only 2 episodes left in the regular season. I think that's about it for now. Good night!

Hurrah. I'm in a good mood. After a horrible joint meeting (bitch must die) and a pretty good active meeting, a bunch of us walked across campus to a car, then drvoe to the stadium and trespassed on the 50 yard line at about midnight. Then we discovered the new walking bridge over Rt. 261 and stargazed for a while, then walked back to the summit east parking lot and talked until 1:30am. Made me really happy cuz it was fun. The only downside was that I lost my house and mailbox key sometime during the fun.... so now I have to search for them when it's light outside. 

In other news, after a shitty spring break full of angst, stuff is better now... and I can't remember if I said anything about it in my last post, but it's worked out for the most part. Still recovering slightly, but feelin good for the most part.

I've fallen head over heels into any pairing involving Lindsey/Christian Kane after realizing how in love with him I really was. God I love that man. I spent all last night digging up old and new fics and RPS involving him and am planning on doing more tonight.

I also realized how much I miss RPing... especially slash rping, so I'm applying for a new RP and learned that the old Hogwarts one I did during highschool is still running, so I was considering applying back there again. I have lots of time on my hands and really really miss forum based RPs. Plus the Hoggies one will be cool if it's the same people running it- they were my first real internet friends and they introduced me to lots of roleplaying/anime stuff. It's through them that I learned what anime was and the one girl got me heavily into Rurouni Kenshin, which I'm still into. 

My kittens are getting bigger and Bailey's voice has changed... Drake's falling behind in the puberty department, but I'm sure him voice will change at some point.

Oh and I've learned how to cook! Ash taught me how to make packet meals while she was here and emily taught me how to combine lots of random stuff to things and still make it taste good. I've made a packet meal on my own, along with my first marinade and even successfully made myself a hamburger from my old molding of ground beef. I'm so proud of myself!

Plus, Tami showed me where I could download a dvd burner thingy and now I'm able to record clips straight to my computer so I can actually start learning how to make my own vids! I'm SO excited! I just have to decide what clips I want to use in the 2 songs I've already picked out, and record them and then learn how to put them together. Hurrah! 

The only scared thing is that my audition for switching to a Music Education majour is next saturday and I havn't practiced since before spring break. But it's kinda sad that when I really think about it, I won't be too unhappy if I fail. I'll just go on to photography or photojournalism or something. I'm kinda on the college trial program. I'll try about 40 things until I find one I like.

Oh well. Time to look up more Lindsey slash. Hurray! 

(I even made my own icon)

So it's been a while. I made a list cuz there's alot.

First off, the KSU Men's Basketball team became the champions of the MAC tournament this year and went on to the NCAA. That was amazing. At the MAC championship and almost having a heart attack because they let Toledo come back to be within 3 points of tieing the game. But we won and watched our fans charge the floor and celebrate. That was cool. What was cooler was going to Michigan for the NCAA! We had been hoping it would be someplace far away like San Diego, CA or something, but it actually turned out to be good that we only went to MI because not only did we have a load of fans come, but we lost in the first round against Pitt. It was sad having to come back home after only 2 days, but it would have been tons worse having to go back home after only 2 days in San Diego. Even though we lost, our men fought valiently, the refs needed to be shot, and KSU still had an AMAZING season.

As for Kappa Kappa Psi- The candidates are active now, yay for them!! I'm slightly concerned that my little doesn't seem to like his nickname, but I suck at things like that, and it was about all I could think of. :( I'm excited about a D&D game that my one Brother is planning on running for us, cuz I've never played Eberron before and I think it will be fun. Also, the NCD convention was last weekend, and other than having a fever for the entire time and a couple other Brothers getting sick, I had a blast. I went to 3 workshops by myself, (which was kinda sad) participated in them, and really really enjoyed Reading Band this year. Last year it was stop and start, this year we played every piece in our folder all the way through. It was a 100% improvement. We spent alot of time with Toledo (Oh no it's Beta Rho!) a little time with Akron, and enjoyed mingling with brothers from all over the district. Plus the night before convention I had the KKY district council camp out in my apartment, and I believe my cats had a blast in keeping them awake. (Sorry!) I was sad to see the council go, and wish for the best for the next one, because it will be hard to top the Year of the Cock. ( ;) ) Plus MA's final report made our entire chapter cry... In other KKPsi news, I'm planning on running for office next year, though I'm not entirely sure which one I want to go for yet... and it depends on whether I manage to get a chapter office first. 

My kittens are growing. Alot. Both of them have little fat tummies sticking out now, and Bailey managed to get one front paw through his collar. If it had been just a little tighter and in a different place he could have possibly strangled.... which made me have another breakdown and they're not wearing collars anymore. Maybe when they're older. They also killed their first spider, and I was slightly surprised to find myself feeling pity for the spider... watching two kittens torture this little arachnid to death made me realize that Death by Kitten could possibly fall under Cruel and Unusual Punishment. 

[personal profile] soulless_lover has a kidney stone, so love to her, and hope for a speedy recovery. Though she's sitting in my living room right now... she'll possibly see this later ;)

[personal profile] kidcyclone is also currently in my living room, and I made my list about a week and a half ago, so this area was supposed to be reserved for how excited I was going to be to see her, but I think I'll change it to how much I love her and hope she's having a good time.

Job status: None. Application status: 4 submitted. Debt: $1200+. Hope of getting job: Not so much.

"Money?" (that's what's written on my list.) I can't remember what I was going to say about it other than I've got none and owe my mom $1200. A job would be nice. Is there a patron saint of Job Applications?

Spring Break ends in 3 days. I've decided to become a Music Education major... interesting anecdote about that. I've always wanted to be one... I didn't want to leave high school because it meant growing up so teaching was always a possibility. I loved my band director best out of all the teachers I ever had. I've wanted to do this. The Beta Omega class was very supportive... my own Little helped me apply for an audition and has given me tons of advice and info. I announced my plans in a joint meeting and got an applause from TBS (they're all Music Ed majors). I announced my plans in a KKpsi meeting and got groans. I told [personal profile] kidcyclone and she was all for it... I told my mom and she groaned. Why is it that of the 3 people/groups that I care about their opinion most (my Brothers, [personal profile] kidcyclone, my mom), 2 out of the 3 are not supportive and everyone else was more supportive than I've ever seen? Oh well.

Drama needs to be prohibited from the world. I could say everything I'm thinking, but I think I'll save it for a notebook because it could hurt about 8 or 9 people if I just vent and don't consider what I'm saying. I'm sick of fucking drama.
