Oviedo Polo Camp [21 Dec 2006|09:27pm]
[ mood | tired ]

So the majority of my week has been spent at the Oviedo Aquatic Center. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to be exact. The camp was pretty hard, by virtue of the fact that for nearly 7 straight hours I was in the pool doing drills and not really being challenged. I did however become friends with 4 new people. And as is typical with me, they were all 4 girls, and girls from different schools. Schools far away. Kim, Lauren, Ariel and Alyson. They're nice. We had a tournament today. My team won both games. Low scores though. Last night I drove all the way to Casselberry to go to Steak 'N Shake. I hope Kim was happy lol. She has a bad ass santa hat. It's from Victoria's Secret. And it was only 10 dollars. I want one. If anyone needs last minute ideas haha, get me one of those. I may go back out there tonight for shits and giggles. All the coaches were really nice. I miss the ones from Navy though. They were fun. I'm gunna go sleep now.

"The glass isn't empty. It isn't full either. The glass is broken. It is broken because nothing lasts forever. Eventually, that glass will be knocked from the table, or shelf and shatter; never to be put together again. The moral in this story is that nothing lasts forever. Everything must come to an end sometime, so cherish the moments you do have."---- (roughly) R. Eric Simpson.

It's funny how often that philosophy from the philosopher band director can be applied. (and yes I realize the redundant nature of that statement.) Not only in the band arena, where the concept was first thrown onto us freshmen, but in relationships, friendships, and hell, just the day to day monotony most of us call our lives. Our big long chat about band, and the nature of the main problems we've been having brought this story out. Granted I knew Denver would talk about it, as he told me before it started, I didn't think it would be recieved so well. this was a story that was told to us once at the very end of our freshman marching season. It was amazing to just see the faces of the freshmen, sophomores and juniors. They started out very confused as they had never heard the story before, and suddenly they were told their opinion was wrong. But such was the way of Mr. Simpson, The Philosopher. When the moral of the story, or the reasoning behind such a seemingly harsh statement, was finally revealed, a look of utter understanding crossed over the whole of the band. All of us seniors knew what it was about, but I still think that hearing it again, seeing it being shared with a new group of students,brought something out in us. I'm pretty sure that most of the students in that room today came out thinking at least a little bit differently. And if they don't now, I hope they do soon.

The point of this story of a story is that as the date of Lauren's trip up here draws closer and closer I can't help but recall that story. "The glass is broken. Nothing lasts forever." The moments that I will hopefully get to spend with her will be ones to be truly cherished forever. The moments I spend with everyone will be. I can't wait.

This one's for you Mr. Simpson. The Ever Philosophizing Band Director.

Yesterday was the district championships for water polo. We lost our second game to Cyrpess Creek which knocked us out of state contention, which in turn knocked out my hopesof seeing Lauren. Oh well. You win some you lose some. I just lost two. Prom was last night too. That was interesting. Fun though. And I got my slow dance with Kiki. :-)

Today was pretty good. Worked on some treading stuff, mainly for deep water training at Wet N Wild. I start training on May 17th...woot. Mowed the lawn, and went running. I did like 3 miles...sadly no puking. Which means I didnt push myself hard enough. Anyways, I came in from that and saw that I had a message from someone. It turned out to be the girl I couldnt take my eyes off of yesterday. the girl I told to flip into the diving well lol. We talked for a bit and I called her later and we talked for about half an hour. That made me happy lol. She's pretty cool. Then I watched Donnie Darko. And let me tell you, that is one messed up movie. Good, but reeeeeeeeeeally strange. Great music too. Anyways, I'm out like a trout.

Just got back from bowling with Gary and Kevin. Me and Gary are now in competition. I'm ahead 5 games to 2. I'm thinking about posting this chart of wins and losses from week to week in the bandroom. If we're allowed. I won with scores of 97, 147, 120, 168 and 134 (9 frame game) respectively. Go ahead. Add up the scores. It's kind of comical. I may go next weekend. Come along if you want to watch me and Gary. Or you can bowl in the lanes next to us. but it's me Kevin and Gary on one lane. No more lol. It's fun to watch...you know you want to...

Stupid judge gave us an excellent. We nailed the crap out of it. Whatever though. It's his perogative. This has been just an amazing week. Enough said.

I'm going to be honest on here for the first time in a while. I'm really happy with where I am right now. Me and Hayley are back to good friends I suppose. Felicia and I are ok now I guess. I sort of talked to Lauren tonight. That was good I suppose. Met a girl at polo who seems nice. Polo has been a blessing. It doesn't leave me any time at all to think about anything. But I need to go to bed. I'm satisfied. Finally.

So my friendship with Lauren seems to be shot and I don't think she thinks it is. Which sucks because I still love the girl. So much for her going to prom with me I guess. Oh and did I mention I've apparently gone from amazing to just awesome?

this has been the worst weekend of my life. Without a doubt.

This weekend has pretty much blown. Any plans I had ended up getting shot to hell. I stayed at home and watched MTV and the Discovery channel all weekend. I ate an entire pizza by myself on Friday night, and sat at home alone eating McDonalds last night. Sure I had some interesting conversations, and I sort of patched things up with Felicia only not, but on the whole, this weekend was probably the worst of my life. I've been listening to the same song for a day and a half. I saw Underworld on Friday...only it was by myself. Me and Danny were suposed to hang out...he never called..which means I missed the movies with Shannon. Today is the only day that I have any sort of plans...but they probably won't happen either...big surprise. Ugh I'm just tired of all of this. Someone needs to call me.

Brave - Aid XXI....what can I say. Very impressed with the wonderful jobs done by Sarah Fisher, Sam Ciullo, Emily Smith, RENT, Coach Kay, (VEEEEERY MUCH IMPRESSED BY) Rachel Meek, Adam Chong, Q Phi G, Kelly and Kortney, Cold Equations, The Guidance Counselors, Gail, Trombowned Debra, Dorothy and Lydia, and The Bravettes. I was highly unimpressed with stix. Personally I found the pre- act performance well....boring. It was ripped directly from the intermission performance from Blast!, and was nothing more than a cadence. What happened to solos? Also, in the act itself, bringing in a tuba, and playing a rap song? NOT part of what stix...(or should I say STYX?) should be all about. The last thing that irked me was turning on the lights for the end. That is just wrong. Don't be afraid to try something new guys. Copying old stuff and playing cadences is not very impressive. With that said, and my rant complete, I leave you now.

I wanted to kick Mike's ass at lunch today. For his comment about Bijan. And I quote. "In the dictionary, suicide is between shit and sympathy. He's not getting either out of me." DOUCHEBAG! The part that made it worse was everyone's agreeing with him at the table. Fuck that. I regret not just punching him in the face right then and walking away. Bijan was my friend, and Mike had to be an asshole. Fuck you.

[ mood | melancholy ]

Pretty crappy day. I mean I didn't really know Bijan that well, but he sat in front of me in Summer School for 3 weeks. He was my friend. Reading what Sammi has written, she knew him so much better. Better than I ever did, but there's still that feeling of loss. A feeling that won't go away for quite sometime. Everybody that was in my summer school class knows who he is, and they were all touched by him in one way or another. Me personally in part from his take on the class, and how bad it was. We shared something to laugh about, even if it was mostly my lack of intelligence. I was devastated when Tyler pointed out who's name it was on the letter, because I had lost a friend, like I said, not a really close friend, but a friend nonetheless. I feel lucky to have met Bijan, and it's hard to believe he's really gone. We all miss you.

Anyways....this was a pretty good weekend. I ran on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or around 6 and a half miles total. Not bad. Didn't do much of anything outside of that. Went to dinner at Danny's last night. Felicia is being a complete bitch. Thank you God for not letting things work out between us. she's a two faced liar with no heart or sense of decency. Not to mention she can't spell worth shit. When referring to the shoe, it is spelled "HEELS" NOT"HEALS". And tomorrow has never been spelled tomarrow, and NEVER WILL BE.

On a lighter note, played T.V. Scene It with mom and Hayley. I finally won a game. Go me lol. Melissa called me tonight. Gotta love new friends. Anyways, I'm off to watch the television.

ne word, that's all was said,
Something in your voice called me, turned my head.
Your smile captured me, you were in my future as far as I could see.
And I dont know how it happened, but it happens still.
You ask me if I love you, if I always will.........

Well, you had me from "Hello"
I felt love start to grow the moment I looked into your eyes,
You won me, it was over from the start.
You completely stole my heart, and now you won't let go.
I never even had a chance you know?
You had me from "Hello"

Inside I built a wall so high around my heart, I thought I'd never fall.
One touch, you brought it down
Bricks of my defenses scattered on the ground
And I swore to me that I wasn't going to love again
The last time was the last time I'd let someone in

Well, you had me from "Hello"
I felt love start to grow the moment I looked into your eyes,
You won me, it was over from the start.
You completely stole my heart, and now you wont let go.
I never even had a chance you know?
You had me from "Hello"

Thats all you said
Something in your voice calls me, turns my head
You had me from "Hello"
You had me from "Hello"
Girl, I've loved you from "Hello"
