Its been a while since I blogged. This is mostley due to the fact the I have been busy with school related stuff.

Youtube Gathering news:
Not a whole lot of new information. Go to for more information.
Screenplay news:
I'm making the move from screenplay to musical now. I've been planning on making this change for quite some time. For more information on that visit
I am quite tired now due to a lack of sleep. I've been doing a lot of composing latley due to the fact that I still have a TON of music to write for the screenplay/musical. I thought it might be fun to post a picture or two now. Enjoy! Hopefully I'll be back in full force this next week!

I can hardley wait for the Bay City youtube gathering! Hopefully a few people show up. I already know of at least four people who probobly going to be there. Other than that, I have no idea how many will show up.

Moving from a play to a musical

Do you think writing a play is hard? Well guess what...writing a musical is harder. As many of the frequenters to my blog know, I am writing a play. What you didn't know is that I am actually writing a musical. I originally just wanted to write the play, but as time passed I decided to turn it into a musical. Right now I am working on writing the songs, most of the lyrics have been written. But, I already know there will be changes. That's just what happens when you are a writer and composer. So far my parents have no idea that I am writing a musical, so they have no idea what all the noise is about. They'll find out eventually. I just want to finish the songs first before showing it to them the whole thing. My mom has seen the script, but doesnt know about the fact that it will become a musical eventually. I really need to get going now so I can work on some studying for classes!

Love ya all!

Today is my day of random quotes coming out of my mouth.

I swear this computer hates me. Maybe it's not the computer. Maybe it's the mouse. I could swear it's just one of those days that the world is out to get me. Sometime last night, I misplaced my dad's keys. I didn't mean to. It just happened. I spent the hour I was awake searching for them. I never found them. Not really. I didn't find them before I left the house to go to my college classes today. When I got to school and was pulling my backpack out of the car, I saw them laying on the floor of the car. I still don't know how they got there. As for the computer and the mouse. I could swear one of the two hates me. I can get both to work fine most of the time. But I occasionally have problems with the computer running to slow or the mouse not going where I want it too. I am not using my laptop. I'm using one of the school computers that I always struggle with.

I have bell choir rehersal tonight. Yes I play handbells. I love bell choir rehersals. Something new and interusting always happens during our rehersals. One week someone said "Next chimes the charm!". It's one of those bell things that Im not going to attempt to explain. I am a bass bell player right now. I can play anywhere, but I'm playing the medium sized bells. I love the bells I've been playing for the past semester. In a peice we are playing for Easter, the bells around me (including mine), get to play the melody. We sure do love that peice. I'm sure that if you were too watch us playing, you would be able to tell just how excited we are about the peice.

I arrived at school today at 9am. My first class today starts at 11am. It seems kind of stupid for me to be sitting here doing nothing more than blogging. But that's what I am doing. I'm blogging at 9AM in the morning. Why am I even up this early? Sometimes I wounder about myself. Why do I force myself to get up earlier than I need to?

I am sore from yesterday. I'm taking this fitness walking class. It sure does make you sore. If you love feeling sore I suggest taking a fitness walking class. But, if you hate feeling sore, never NEVER NEVER taking a fitness walking class. Just wait until you start walking across a floor on your butt. That sure does make your butt hurt. Let's just say that there is more to Fitness walking than just walking. My butt hurts from walking across the floor on my butt, my legs are sore from doing stairs at high speed, and I really need to stand up now because my but really hurts BAD! I think that's all the blogging I can handle for the moment.

Hopefully I'll be back tomarrow to blog again. Hopefully my but wont hurt anymore then, and my legs will have recovered. I think Ill be sure not to do any blogging from a hard chair on a Tuesday after Fitness walking EVER again. I'll probobly be blogging about a novel I have to read tomarrow for my Childrens Lit class that I havent started yet.

I love ya all!

I didn't know about this song until recently. When I found it a couple of days ago, I fell in love with it. I don't have much more to say about it.

This is also an amazing song! The musical talent involved with all of the songs from this concert was AMAZING!!! I am sure that this second song will touch anyone who has lost a friend/family member. I know it touch me so much the first time I heard it, and it touches me still.

Over the summer a good friend of mine died of stomach cancer. But to completley understand the story you have to go back to the fall of 2006. During that fall I had joined the adult bell choir. I had already been playing bells for two years, so I had no problems learning the music (which happens to be a level or two above what I was used to-which wasn't any challange for me). That fall a member of my church who plays the flute was going to play a peice with us. I had known her since I was in middle school. During the morning of the preformance Pam and I got to talking. I felt so much like I knew her better than I really did. That sunday was the last time I saw Pam. Within a couple of weeks I heard that she had been diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer. She never returned to church, and I never saw her again. That summer she died exactly a week before the fourth of July. Her funeral was the sunday before the fourth of July. The thing I remember was going to her funeral, and feeling so alone because I didn't know anyone there besides her husband and her daughter, who I both knew through the music program at church. I was always checking with her husband to see how Pam was doing. She wasn't doing too well, and was in some pain. During the funeral I met a few people I never knew before, and who I havent heard from since. I was sitting in a pew with a few of her friends who I had never met before. There were times we were all laughing at a good memory of her, and times we were crying. I've missed seeing Pam around. I still see her husband around church regularly. I am still apart of the bell choir. Just this morning we had a preformance and Pams husband was there. I couldn't help but remember Pam during our preformance when I saw him. Later this semester we are doing a bell dedication for several new bells we got, and we are dedicating them to Pam. During that preformance we will being doing a number for bells and a flute as a memory to Pam. So many of us knew Pam, so that preformance will mean something to all of us. When I die, the first person I want to see is Pam.

I am SO bored right now. I'm tired of studying, and I don't know what to do. So I'm sitting here staring at this blog, trying to decide what to write about.

Hmmm. What's been going on since I last wrote a blog about my life? There's been school, homework to do, studying to do, two hours of working in the church nursery every week (Monday nights), one and a half hours of rehersal every tuesday night with the bell chior, and anouther two hours helping with the teen/childrens bell choirs.

Working in the nursery hasn't been bad at all. That has been a lot of fun (well until about 9:30). At 9:30 on Monday nights I'm dieing to go home and sleep after my fitness walking class. The childrens bell choir knows me fairly well now. During one of their recent rehersals, they decided that I am an indian when I'm playing a part they need me to play on one of their peices (I'm malleting about six bells).

Playing with the adult bell choir at church sure has been a blast! I am by far the youngest ringer, but thats fine with me. The oldest ringer is (I think) old enough to be my grandma. Becky, Carin, and Devon are by far the next youngest in the choir after me (Becky is still ten years older!). Becky, Devon, and I have this natural chemistry.
