District II was awesome! It was held Friday and Saturday at a local high school, which was very nice. I loved our director! His name was Francisco Nunez. He is the director of the Young People's Chorus of New York City and is very attractive! he was also very funny and nice, but also brutally truthful which is good when it comes to choral music. But it was a lot of fun and we sang a lot of great music from all around the world. We did this Japanese piece that was really hard. I kind of just made up the words during the performance. We were probably the weakest choir out of the whole festival, but that is expected because it is freshmen and junior girls only.

Today was a normal Monday. Nothing interesting. Lots of work to do, but that's okay because most of it's long term stuff. I was in a very good mood today if your interested in that type of stuff. I don't know why. I guess because it was an easy day and I got to hang out with Jon yesterday which is a rare and amazing thing.

Oh and also because I have started planning out my classes for next year which is a scary but totally exciting thing! Because next year I actually get to take classes that are going to help me in my actual chosen career path. No pointless math classes or gym electives (only one next year, but w/e). Psychology, anatomy (chem teacher suggested it since I'm going into psychology), music theory and senior year here I come! Except not really for another 1/2 year, but that's okay!

So today was super duper boring. Seriously nothing happened. I went to starbucks and got a skinny latte. "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Ten coolness points to your ego if you get that quote...
Ya I got nothing. Tomorrow's Districr II Honors choral festival so no class for me! woot woot!

Peace,

i meant to write yesterday about my oh so interesting Tuesday/ Friday schedule, but I got home at 11:30, so you'll have to wait until next Tuesday to read about that!

Today we had a snow day, if you've been watching the news in New England, I think you already knew that. I have no idea how much snow we got, but it is a lot. I'm pretty sure it's stopped...yep it did i just looked out the window. But i know the snow is almost piled up to the top of my fence, so there's a lot of snow. People say they don't want snow because we will be in school later into the summer, but I really don't care. I think we are done school on June 21st at this point, which is perfectly fine with me. June is a crappy weather month; it is always rainy and not really hot yet. And I really appreciate snow days because i don't have to get up at the butt crack of dawn (quote my dad, he says it all the time!) and go out in to freezing cold weather. and I don't have to worry about homework the night before. in June I am not waking up to freezing cold, but warmth. And if it is to hot, it doesn't matter because my school is awesome and is air conditioned. Oh and mentally for students and teachers, school is done in may so we are not going to be doing as much work (if any) compared to the days we would have been in school if we didn't have a snow day. SO ya, snow days are good.

I got to sleep in and I made chocolate chip pancakes and then i cleaned my room which was totally trashed because yesterday I couldn't find what I wanted to wear. I did all my homework and all the self assigned work i had for chem. We always get a bunvh of worksheets and reading/ Cornell notes assignments in chemistry, but they aren't due until the end of the semester. They aren't actually ever do they just have to be in your binder and looking like you actually have been doing work which is hard to make it look like if you haven't actually done the work. So having work not actually have to be passed in for a grade makes it easy for work to pile up. A couple of weeks ago me and my friend spent an entire day catching up on this work. I do not want to have to do that again even though it was fun my friend, it was still rather painful to get through.

After that was all done i decided to paint my nails. I didn't like the way my nails came out so i decided to take the nail polish off. I couldn't find any nail polish remover, so i used clear nail polish to get the black nail polish off. Then like an hour later, i found the nail polish remover. Of course :/

Yep that was my day, pretty boring but I got a lot done and I didn't have school so its all good!
