High Schools Are Slacking On What They’re Famous For…Actual Fights

What happened to the good old days where crowds of excited and screaming students cheered and booed during fist fights? I loved those days, and although I don’t want to be in one, I was looking forward to High School to watch some great action. During today’s lunch period, a crowd of High Schoolers gathered near the cafeteria and made a big commotion. What for you ask? Of course, a fight. But wait! There’s more! It’s a dance fight! Oh God, kill me now. Who the hell would get excited over a dance fight? Yes, it is entertaining, in its own way, but why would there be an immense crowd, with screaming and excited students? Some High Schooler was actually video taping it. What-the-hell? High School is really getting lame now. A dance fight is cool, but don’t get me riled up just for a dance fight. Now that’s just annoying. The hilarious part about it all(if it isn’t already clear)? One of our school security guards came by (10 minutes after it started, mind you) and just watched. When one of the dance fighters hit the other, she was like, “No hitting”. Oh God, so lame. And I’ve never seen an actual fist fight before either. I’m so dissapointed. Have you guys ever seen one before? I bet it was wonderful. I hope you share the experience with me from a comment. By the way, I’m not even sure if there’s another way to communicate anyway on this site. lol

Is My Band Teacher Going Crazy Or Am I Actually Getting Better?

As you might know, maybe not, I play the flute, and yesterday, I had a test. I don’t think I’m the least bit good at playing the flute. Well, at least I can play individual notes, unlike some of my classmates, but I don’t want to be “not the worst”, I want to be good. So anyway, whenever I have tests during Band class, my heat gets heated up. Seriously, I can feel the heat around my skin. lol I was like that the whole time, and when it was my turn too. If you didn’t already know, in band classes tests work with one person going at a time. So it was my turn, and I practiced before class started and I thought I wasn’t that bad, but I got nervous and when I started playing, my mind went blank. I was doing okay, but when I hit the rest, the next notes were off the metronome. Yeah, you heard me right, I had to play by the beat of a metronome. Actually not that hard, when it’s played slowly, which thank god it was. I stopped then and said out loud, “Aw, I had it.” I was going to ask for a redo, but my teacher let me play from the rest. I did okay after that. But God, was I pissed from my pause. I thought I did horribly all together, but I actually got 100%. Maybe my Band teacher was on drugs or something. lol I would’ve been okay with a 90% or something, but he gave me all 100. Insanity. I don’t think I actually did that well. Who knows? I liked playing the test song though. It had new notes that we just learned the other class period though, so I was worried. During my practice, before class, I made a system on how to change keys during the song, and I thought I had it down. My trip after the pause pissed me off. Thank God for good days. I’m actually enjoying playing my flute now adays in class. It isn’t so bad, but maybe that’s because I really am playing better, who knows.
My older sister has been playing the guitar for months now, and she’s wonderful. I don’t know when she was ever bad, except maybe the first week. But after that, total success. She says it’s practice, and maybe she’s right. I don’t know. I still can’t believe how well I’m improving. I’m enjoying playing my flute more than ever now.
What kind of instruments do you enjoy? Any you hate? I’ve heard people tease the banjo, but seriously, what’s so wrong with it??? I wouldn’t take it, cause it looks so ameatur, but besides that, I don’t think it’s so bad. Do you guys play any instruments? The flute was my first actual instrument I’ve played, proffessionally. I played a plastic flute in 3rd grade with my Music teacher, but it wasn’t for the whole year, so not so severe and proffessional. If you play an instrument, love one, or hate one, come share it with me on a comment now. See ya. 🙂

The Japanese Language

I’d first like to apologize for being gone for a week. I couldn’t come up with anything, or remember what I had planned. ^^ But today for school I had to choose next year’s classes. I really want to take a language class, and I’m greatly interested in the Japanese culture anyway, so Japanese is something I want to learn. My family wants me to choose Spanish, but…I don’t know. It just seems kind of…something everyone else is doing, so why not me, for the hell of it? I want to make my own decisions, and Japanese interests me so much.
So Japanese is my first choice, then there’s some others, but I don’t think you want me to blab on about it all (unless you beg me to ^^ just kiddin) Like I said, the Japanese culture is very interesting to me, and the language isn’t that bad either. It sounds empowering, and, of course, since I only know English, it sounds distant, and unknown. But not in that, what is that? Kind of thing, like Spanish, or those other ones. I think Philipeno chat sounds super annoying. Spanish is cool, but Japanese seems more distant, more unknown and intrigueing. Plus, to write the language is making art itself. Look at this:

The top letters (Japanese writing) means Inuyasha

It’s from my favorite anime, Inuyasha. I’m not sure what one symbol means, but with the Japanese class, maybe one day I will. Ha. It seems that my choices for classes nowadays have become based on this one anime. Truly incredible, unbelievable even. I chose band, my flute, in the hopes that I could one day play music from this anime. Now I’m taking a language class in the hopes that I can be better aquainted with this anime once I complete the class. Mmm…Are you into anything that has given you the drive to make a decision that could change your life? And classes aren’t something to fool around with, yet I’m making rash decisions based on it. Hehe I can’t help myself, I’m too in love with the anime. Speaking of which, I’m gonna go now and watch the newest episode now.
shonensunday.com is the place to go for the newest episodes, now called Inuyasha: The Final Act. There’s other animes there as well. I’m off now! Goodbye! 😀

My Reaction To Blood

Sometimes I can handle seeing blood, but sometimes I can’t. In real life, I can probably take it, if it’s not too much, but the description of blood or seeing it in a movie makes me feel uneasy. Like during English class, we were reading a passage that described a husband as the wife’s “red velvet cake”, and how she murdered him was how she “cut her velvet cake”. It was disgusting. My legs went all numb during that reading. I couldn’t stand it. Then while I was watching Jennifer’s Body, when the band was “sacrificing” Jennifer, I couldn’t take it. My legs got all numb and I just managed to walk into my room. Seriously, I banged into the wall on the way there. Even watching Saw, the movie where that guy got his gut cut up, even while he was still alive. My stomach got uneasy during that part. I can’t take that kind of thing, watching or reading the gruesome details of that. It’s sickening. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Maybe all this has to do with my fear of knives. I describe the situation here: https://soulthecolorpurple.wordpress.com/2010/02/01/seeingknifescream/#respond
I don’t know what’s wrong with me, I just get uneasy during those situations. What do you think about all this? Post your comments here.

Last night, my older sister was playing with me in the kitchen. She took out a huge knife, and I literally screamed, and I could feel the organs in my throat vibrate. It was like, in soprano mode or something. You know what the funny part was? I remember every single thing I did before that moment, but when I saw that knife, I don’t even know what I did. Did I just close my eyes and scream, or look at the knife and scream? I got no clue. haha Well anyways, my dad was in the kitchen too, and he looked at me in disbelief. My neighborhood is super quiet, and my voice could probably be heard everywhere. I can’t help it though, I just can’t stand looking at knives. It freaks me out. Whenever I see one, I just scream hysterically. It’s weird, yet funny at the same time. Even when my sister grabbed a butter knife from a cake box in front of me. I gave out a scream and scurried back. Also when I watched Jennifer’s body, when she got “sacrified”, my legs got numb. I saw the knife they were going to use, and I just couldn’t take it. I can just imagine what I would be like if a burglar came into my house and brought out a knife. I’d frickin scream, and that would be the last noise I would make. haha I can’t help it though. I’m not like, irrationally afraid of knives, it’s just a reflex of mine to scream when I see one.

That’s my story. I can’t quite tell if I actually have a knife phobia or paranoia towards knives. I don’t think it’s either, and here’s why:

Phobia: 

an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situationan

Paranoia:

a thought process heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion

Which do you think I have? Is it neither, the way I think of it? What’s a good word for it then? The symptom I have, the natural reflex I have towards seeing a knife? Comment your answer here.

My Music At The Moment

Posted in about purple, music with tags , on January 13, 2010 by Purple

Just to change the subjects of the day to nice ones: Music. Everyone likes SOME kind of music, right? Well, 99% surely has to. The rest got some problems. lol Just kidding. But anyways, I’m always changing to different kinds of music, and I’m not even sure about the types. LOL I’m serious, I can’t categorize all that stuff. So the band I’m into now is Three Days Grace. OH…MY…GOD. Yup, it’s that crazy insane goth or something music. If you know the type of music, please comment it. What? You don’t think they’re not bad? Check their pic out:

Three Days Grace band members

THAT’S them. They look like frickin goths. lol But I’m only into certain music of theirs, mostly about pain, suffering, problems with the self. I don’t feel like listening to happiness, lost lovers, the like. I want to hear music concerning my soul, how I feel at the moment. Their music has this certain strength about it that makes me feel like I could go into action soon. Like my favorite is Animal I Have Become. It sounds so awesome. It’s about you being an animal but you don’t want to be one and you’re telling someone to help tame the animal within you. It’s so deep. Then another one I enjoy is Break. It’s about…man, I can’t describe it. It’s like how you feel at the moment, not normal and such. And it’s saying that if you don’t like that way of living, break away from it. There’s also World So Cold, but it’s about your lover leaving you and now you feel all detached and etc. I don’t neccissarily enjoy it, but if I don’t pay attention to the lyrics concerning the lover, it sounds cool, the music and beat etc. Another of those is No More, which is basically not wanting to live in fear anymore and you’re telling someone else about it, telling them to give you a reason to stay in the world in which you just live in fear. I don’t know how that neccissarily connects with me though. It just sounds cool I guess.

Well, enough of that for now. Do you know about music? About the different types? Do you sing? Famous? Used to be famous? Know someone in the singing biz? Know someone that makes music contracts? I know a person like that, but I’m too young to start singing. So do you have a favorite singer/band? Whatever is music related, shoot in a comment. 🙂

My Instrument

I think it’s time to give you a little info on my instrument, why I chose it, what’s going on in Band class now. Well, here’s what my instrument looks like:

It has numerous keys, see? And each plays something different. I’m not sure if it’s the instrument, that it’s damaged or what, but I just realized that I can’t play well unless I press hard on the keys. Youch. Like during class, we were playing some stuff, and when I pressed hard on the keys, the tune just sounded so alive. I was so astonished that I lost my place! lol Well anyways, the reason I chose to play this marvelous toughy is because I like the sound it made when I listened to music during an anime. lol Well, it does sound nice, but now that I’ve tried it, I realize that it’s the most beautiful-sounding, most wonderful and enchanting, most HARD TO PLAY INSTRUMENT IN A BAND. …What the f***!? At the beginning of the school year, when we were picking out our instruments, my teacher said that the flute was the easiest to play! But now!? Ugh. Super hard. It does sound wonderful, but it’s just too hard to make it sound like that. I can’t understand all the notes in a song. It’s so hard. Then switching during eighth notes!? Yeah, it happens! So hard. I’ve only mastered the 5 basic notes, while we’ve been taught like 5 other ones. XD (crack up in a psychotic i feel horrible for myself kind of way) My teacher said it’s easy to get an A in class, as long as we show teacher that we have improved. But it’s so hard, I hate it. Then the teacher mentions that we seem to not want to play, that we always ask when the bell is gonna ring and such. xD Well teach, we only go over one number out of the 20 we do a day for only a minute or two! How the FUCK are we supposed to learn all this shit so fast!? I’m not the usual swear kind of person, but this stuff pisses me off. I do NOT want a bad grade, and I feel that it is just a week away. I hate that fact. It’s excruciatingly painful. I can’t fail, I just can’t. I won’t stand for it. I don’t want one, I…got tears in my eyes. 😦 And no kidding, I really do have tears. The thought of failing, the thought of staying back a grade, it…so painful. 😥
