Smile... just cause :)

One of the greatest pleasures in life is making someone smile.

Whether it was because of a funny joke, a story, or something completely different. 

Another one of the most pleasing things is smiling yourself.

I don't care if it's cause you thought of a hilarious comment to say, you won a huge race, someone told you something funny, or just because you want to smile.

Smiling makes you happier.

People are naturally drawn to happy people, am I correct?

I mean, if you are drawn to sullen people who don't care what they act or look like, then that's absolutely fine.
A little weird, I'll admit, but fine.

It just seems to me that if you are in a situation where you don't know anyone, you are naturally drawn to those who seem happy.

Happy people like being happy.

Another thing is, when you are down or sad you should smile because I can say through experience that it can't hurt.

Although I know it's hard when you find out your favorite childhood toy has been sold in a garage sale.

I think smiling is good for the soul.
So join me...

Can you feel it?

It's cold.


Cold/koʊld/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [kohld]   
adjective, -er, -est, noun, adverb
-an unpleasnt feeling of chilliness
- not affectionate, lacking in passion

I hate cold. I love warm. Warm is so nice....
cold is so... cold.

How come there has to be 9 months of cold and only 3 months of warm?
Who thought of that??

I'm convinced cold is a result of the fall. (pun intended)

I just gotta say this,

I'll always know if I'm in heaven or not depending on whether it's cold or not. If it's cold, I know I'm not in heaven.

I'm so sad, you can't even comprehend it :'(



Jeez even now I'm cold.

It never ends.

Just keep swimming

Have you ever had the feeling where you want something so bad, but it seems just out of reach?

I really despise that feeling.

It's really annoying cause everyone is telling you that you can do "anything you put your heart to"

I really despise that saying, too.

It's like those people who can eat 10 gallons of ice cream and not gain a pound.
Just plain annoying.

GUESS WHAT?!?!?!?!


Hah gotcha. 

But seriously though, I'm so bored. 


m'I gniog ot lleps ym sdrow sdrawkcab won. Ahah yrt ot erugif tuo tahw m'I gniyas. I teb uoy t'nac. 

Try to figure that out =D 

They aren't just random letters if that's what your thinking. 

Oh, ok, so I'll tell a story now. So my coach is trying to change my stroke cause apparently I'm not "grabbing the water" enough... and he's standing there talking all obnoxious like and I'm thinking... "Really coach? Really? Don't be a rabid porcupine just tell me what to do!" 

Ugh.... he's like going on about how my elbow needs to be up and my arm needs to be down and I'm thinking like "Seriously, what am I? A Circ De Soleil performer or a swimmer?" 
I mean really. 

Haha if you're wondering where I got the awesome porcupine line it's from the best TV show on earth. 

Ahh... I love this show... so much hahaha =D 

Ok well I'm going to go now... bye!

I didn't think it was possible... but apparently it is.

I'm even more tired now then I was a couple weeks ago.


Coffee helps, vitamins are better. I just don't like swallowing those horse pills =/

It's like I'm walking in a daze...

You'd think I'd be ok since the weekend is coming up.

Well, I'm not.

I have a band festival on Saturday that'll last three hours. Ugh.
It should be fun though. Hopefully...

But ya, it'll be interesting to see what the crowd's reaction is.
Hopefully good...

....I'll need to take those horse pills for the festival....

 Oh well.

Phlo and Phil the Houseflies

     Phil and Phlo, the two houseflies, smelled something absolutely delicious coming from somewhere inside their house. It wasn't their house of course, because it was a human home, but they had lived there their whole lives.
     Phil and Phlo were uncertain where the smell was coming from, but they knew it made them hungry.

                “Look out!” Phlo yelled as the swatter missed her by inches. 
                “Phlo! Are you alright?” Phil yelled as his hearts drummed inside his tiny body.
                “I think so… AH!” the swatter came after Phlo once again and once again Phlo just barely escaped the clutches of death.
                “Let’s get outta here!!!” Phil screamed as loud as he could. Suddenly the two flies heard an ear-piercing sound that seemed to come from all around them. They flew out of the house as soon as they could and their ears  were finally relieved of the horrible noise.
                “What was that??” Phlo asked as she tried to regain her  breath.
                “I don’t know, but I do know that we are not going back there.” Phil replied angrily.
                Phil and Phlo flew into the sunset, never knowing what the horrible noise was, and wishing never to find out. They died three days later because naturally, that’s what flies do.

By Me :)

Star Trek

I don't know how.
I don't know why.
But this is the best movie ever. Period. No doubt about that.
I saw it in theaters, it was funny, it had action, and drama.
But, it doesn't come out to DVD until November 17.
I'm dying here. I NEED to see it again. NEED. Not want, NEED.
Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
It was great. It had 2 of my all time favorite movie lines in it.
Ahh... good stuff.
I don't know why this is my post. I didn't have anything else to write about so I thought I'd complain. It's funner this way.
PLUS... there was only one bad scene, which is good for movies nowadays. Ya know? Still, it didn't need to be in there, but oh well.
I'm very sad without it. I want to watch it really badly :'(
Oh well. Life goes on... for now.

So, how'd it go?

WELL.... actually....
It went rather well =D
We got a big round of applause, no standing ovation but those will come yet.
I'll post a video of us as soon as someone puts it up. If you wanna see us at all just go and look up YouTube and type in LGM and then click on something.
Great directions, right?
hehe of course they are :)
Anyway, we got a bigger round of applause than the other band, but they were still good. Our band clapped for them cause we try to play nice like that :)
But in any case, if anyone lives near me I probably have a performance somewhere near you if you are ever interested. And if you are it'd be pretty sweet if you were a person screaming "TIA!!!!!!!!"
You'd probably be able to see my face turn red as a baby's smacked bottom right there in the middle of the field. Haha.
Seriously though... you probably could...
Anyway... right now I'm at my grandmother's house in Ohio smelling the scent of the freshly baked dolce :)
haha that means dessert in Italian
Pretty sweet, eh?
It bugs me though. I mean really, can't she make something that doesn't smell and taste Iron Chef worthy?
Oh well.


I just realized that typing in LGM is no good... if you type in Little Green Machine Band you'll have results right away... sorry about that =/


Here's a link cause  I really do feel bad about it all... haha

I'll post later on how it went...

Welcome To The Jungle

Have you ever heard the song "Welcome To The Jungle?" by Guns and Roses?

I didn't. Until I had to memorize it.

It's interesting that my band director picked that particular song for this year.

Why? Because for me this year is going to be a jungle.

For the first half of the year I have 2 performances per week with my band.
And then for the second half of the year I have 5 A.M. wake up calls and practices with crabby seniors. Not to mention the 2 meets per week.

That starts right after marching band ends for the year (Novemberish) and ends in March (or April depending on if you make sectionals)

Then after that ends, I've got Aqua club swimming.

Then after THAT I have finals and stuff.

Then I'm done :)

Still though. I feel like I need an announcer...

Why am I so tired?

Isn't that just the universal question? Why am I so tired?

It's quite interesting how even after a night of a full 8 hours of sleep a human can be as
"out of it" as I am now. I'd study it, but... I'M TOO TIRED.

Something has got to be wrong with me =/ Oh well... hopefully once I start swimming up again I'll be more energized.

Our stupid school pool had to close the whole month of August.

Why? To save energy.

And yet... they keep the parking lot lights on all through the night... when NO ONE is EVER there.

Quite annoying.

I'd study it, but... I'M TOO TIRED.

I really do hate being sleepy during the school day. It really does bug me that I need to tape my eyelids up to stay awake.

Someone needs to find a cure for tiredness. Now.

Oh well.
