Does there always have to be a title?

November 28 2005

Yeah, who isn't prepared for Saturday?

That would be me.

And why is this?

Because, for some reason, Mr. Hearn decided that the time would be better spent sight reading, instead of actually working on the specified pieces of music.

So the question is, can I get this music learned, on my own, by Saturday?

Uhhh, I'm guessing not. I am trying out for governor's school for voice, though...That's pretty darn exciting, if you ask me.=)

Bored, bored, booooooreed....

November 04 2005

Yeah, is there any other way to put that? Didn't think so....

Wow, my last entry was a month ago....And band is finally over, so I have my life back. But apparently I'm sitting at home, bored (about to resort to...dare I say it.....voluntarily going to the coffee shop) so having my life back may not be a good thing.

It's quiet. Really, really quiet.

Can you guys tell i'm bored?

Fall Retreat was awesome. Hey, if you ever get a chance to go to New Frontiers, do it. The zipline/30 feet in the air obstacle course rocked, as did the live game of "clue" we played, and the scenery was amazing....I love being constantly reminded of how awesome God is.

Okay, I asked this on xanga, too, but what in the heck is "maxin"? It's in the fresh prince's driving me crazy.

Haha, we should have bonfires more often. And people shouldn't make fun of other people when they get mugged....=P

It's FALL!

"Now, this is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside-down...."

No, that has absolutely no relevance to anything going on whatsoever . It's just been stuck in my head all day, so all you lucky kids get to read it.

Fall Break=very fun. Oh yeah. Even though I'm like, "WHAT?? IT'S THURSDAY??" It's still been fun, just waaaaay to quick in passing.

I'm supposed to be making churros tomorrow with Cathy, Stephy, and Erin, but I have yet to talk to them....except for Stephy....and then we're supposed to go burn things down at Stephy's house....*maniacal laughter*

Fall Retreat on Friday!

Families are weird.

September 24 2005

I've found that, with my family, you find out more if they think you have no idea what they're talking about. Especially if they think it's a secret. And they just keep avoiding the main word of the conversation, but keep talking about it, all the while thinking I have noooooooooo idea what's going on.

Oh contraire.

If you've ever wondered what it's like being the youngest child, look at it this way. You are always, always considered naive. It doesn't matter what they thought your siblings understood at your age, your way of thinking, to them, will always be the equivilant of a twelve year old. That's just, the way it works. In my family, anyway.

So yeah, that was kind of random.....

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire comes out TWO DAYS before my birthday!!!!

~Rachel =)

Competition Today!!!!!

September 17 2005

Dude, I'm excited.....Hendersonville! Newton!

I've really missed this....I don't think i've missed it this much before....

*dances* Yeah, i'm in a good mood....and I'm going to be extreeeeeeeeemely hyper allllll day.....=D

I love you!

~Rachel =)


September 13 2005

What's wrong with phusebox? It's acting funny....

The Afters are a really cool band. You should all go listen to them. Oh, and if you haven't read Eragon yet, you should read it. Then Eldest.....which I still haven't finished......*talks to Kelly for an hour and a half about possibilties of book*
Man, I'm a dork.

And I still have homework. So, until we meet again....

Oh yeah, Sound of Music is a realllllllly good movie. =D

"And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity and
I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go, promise I’m going because
I gotta get outta here
I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I gotta get outta here
And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, I’m begging You to be my escape."

I'd post the whole song, but that'd take up a lot of space. That exactly what i'm feeling. No questions asked, hands down...great song.

~Rachel =)

I'm taking over my bathroom.

September 04 2005

Sharing a bathroom with two brothers didn't work, so maybe now that one's gone....

Haha, yeah, pretty sure I spent like an hour of my day pacing around my room and muttering ideas about how to change my room and how to take over my bathroom. And I finally washed my car! *dances*

Siegel has a winning streak! Siegel has a winning streak! haha, I loved the way the paper worded it-"this is the first time the third year school has won consecutive games". I wonder if we get better than blackman if they'll still hate us so much =)

I have so much to say, and no words to write it in. So in that case...

~Rachel =)


August 28 2005
The One Ring......TO RULE THEM ALL!!!!!

Oh man, Flash animations are waaaaay too much fun.

Junior year=super mondo amounts of homework. This weekend alone I had a history paper to write, a spanish poem to finish, Etymology definitions, and history info to read (which I still haven't done). Last year I think I only had homework on the weekends like 3 times.....=P I'm not really complaining, it's just surprised me.

Watch it. it's amazing.

Grace's party=mucho fun. First spaghetti Factory trip, first laser quest game...hehehehe....very, very fun. =) Plus, our waiter looked like Ewan McGregor from Moulin Rouge, and we got him to sing....well, he did a little bit. =P Plus the funny looks we got from the crazy people in Nashville for wearing prom dresses made it more interesting....

~Rachel =)

i'm finally back!

August 25 2005

haha, just finished my last summer reading card (Their Eyes Were Watching God) the day before it was due. I think I have some kind of disease that doesn't let me get things done until the absolute last minute. I'm serious, it's alllllllllllways the night before. If I try to do it earlier, I'll get distracted. Oh well....Stephy has it too....maybe we both just like stress. =P

Rachel has seven classes this year! Of course you would have already known this if I updated more than every two weeks....but stilll. Yay for etymology!

Maybe it'll be easier to write this weekend when I'm not dead from writing the plot of a book where all that happens is the stupid girl gets married every three seconds....

G'night, dearies.

~Rachel =)

Welcome back to dial-up.

August 12 2005
Yeah, pretty sure my brother was paying for our high-speed, so now that he's wonderful, click-and-it's-there, mondo-fast internet is goooooone. *tear*

Band camp really wasn't so bad. Our music for our performance really wasn't that bad (i'm so proud of my freshman!!!) but I know a couple of my lines could have been a loooooot better. So we'll see. Dude, we already have like 40 sets down....that's almost all of last year's show.

I like my schedule, so far....they switched my alg/trig early day math to a regular class because of size, and completely dropped my world history, which I need, unlike the math. So....I'm trying to drop the math, get my world history in like it's supposed to be, and the best part? I'M GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE EARLY DAY ETYMOLOGY!!! Yeah, pretty sure i've been wanting to take that class....yeah, i'm a dork, but I really think it sounds cool.....

See you muffins later!
*for Caitlin and Sara*
AIDA!!!!!!!!! *does hand motion*

~Rachel =)

You Are the Stuffing

You're complicated and complex, yet all your pieces fit together.
People miss you if you're gone - but they're not sure why.

What Part of Thanksgiving Are You?

yeah, i thought that was funny.


July 31 2005
Okay, waaaaaaaay too many people have xangas. I found one friend, and then it led me to like 20 others. Yeah, no exaggeration. Soooo......liking phusebox a bit now.

Yeah, my internet's deciding not to be evil anymore...yay!

Dude, I'm a dork. I *laughs* miss marching. Sad, isn't it? Just promise me you won't think differently of me now.....

I think we scared the few freshman that were actually at the party. Yeah.


~Rachel =)

The internet is EVIL.

July 29 2005

Yeah, pretty sure the internet's down at my here I am, updating from the always oh-so-eventful coffee shop. (come visit me!)

Freedom is only a day away! Yeah, with band camp, then more daily coffee shop routine! *throws party* no, seriously, this calls for celebration....

Clarinet party at Krista's tonight. Hope enough people show up, considering someone *coughs considerably loudly* forgot to put the day on the info sheet......oops. I thought red bull increased concentration? maybe not. =)

I got my car back today!

Gotta go...
~Rachel =)

Kid's Castle+friends+cupcakes+band=fun

July 26 2005
Yay for eventful days!.

Dude, our new music is awesome! I really think I'm going to looooove this show. And pre-camp.....haha, standing between freshman telling them they're marching wrong while holding a very full, very cold water bottle. hehehe.......we'll see. =)

Oh yeah, my car? After breaking down four times, not to mention getting it a new alternator and battery, it is now brought to our attention that it's...just.....some....stupid.....pulley.
Oh well, at least it's not a new radiator and stuff.....very, verrrrrry thankful for that. *answered prayers*

Okie doke, think that's all for now. See you monkeys later. older brother is moving out..... Friday

~Rachel =)


July 25 2005
Whoah.....this is weird ....Rachel has a phusebox! Okay, this is a lame first entry, and I'm still keeping Xanga....but we'll see how this goes, shall we?

~Rachel =)

Okay, to update.....this is awesome! I can't....stop....clicking! haha, okay, official announcement-

Tomorrow. Kid's Castle. 1:30. BE THERE. Bring pizza money! That is all.
