So, I really don't post here ever. But I read my friends page still and am involved in some communities. I wasn't even sure if I was still considered anyones "friend" on here. But I thought that I would update a little bit, just in case.
Well I'm a sophomore now in school, studying Vocal Performance and Music Education. I'm planning on dropping my ed major at the end of this semester because I really don't play on teaching k-12 anymore. I'd love to become a voice teacher at the college level, and a education degree isn't need for that. Performance experience is needed. And that's what I want to do now.
I'm going to Europe this summer. For 5 weeks I'll be in Austria studying Music in Salzburg. I literally cannot wait. It's going to be a blast.
I've also been experimenting with video a little bit. Check out my Youtube account:http://www.youtube.com/user/ohjustjake
I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but I like to dabble in everything - photography, videography, music, you name it.

I've started a new journal. It's going to be one for college, because this journal has been highschool and middle school, and I'm pretty much ready to move on. I'm also going to try and take lots of photographs, because I got Photoshop on my Mac now, and I can't wait to play around with it more. So once I make this new journal, I'll announce it, but I'm not going to post the link. You'll need to contact me to get the url for it, because I'm not handing it out this time. It will also be friends only. I can't wait to get started.

I'm making my college choice tomorrow. All I have been doing lately is debating about it, and then I'll be like "well, I don't have to to decide this now". So I don't. But tomorrow I am.
I also think I'm going to go to Fredonia this weekend just to check the campus out one more time. If I can find a way to get to Potsdam in the next couple days, I'll do that too. It's be nice to see both campus's again just to reassure myself.
And just to make this entry like all my others - I haven't written here in a long time. But that's because I'm not so into LJ anymore..

Ever since coming home from All State, I have been so obsessed with vowels and dynamics. I cannot help it. The conductor (Dr. Andre Thomas = love) was very picky in these two areas, and would not allow us to continue in each piece until we got it right.
Anyway, I cannot wait until college. All State just reinforced my want to be a chorus director. I cannot wait to start earning my degree and finally getting a job that I will like.
I'm conducting a song in chorus now. I hope i don't lose friends in the process haha.
And.. how long does it take to get over someone? A day? A month? A year?
This is awful.
I like being vague.

Last Thursday through Sunday, I was in Rochester at All State. At first, I really couldn't wait to go home. By the end, I wanted it to be so much longer.
All State was such an amazing experience. Plus, my conductor was a conducting God - he was so amazing and we sounded so good because of him. I learned so much from him in 4 days than I have with other people who I have been around for years.
As always, it was very emotional for me because I'm such an emotional person. I'm pretty overloaded on my emotions right now. It sucks. I'll get through it, eventually.
I also got accepted into All Eastern, which is in March. I'm pretty excited for it because my friend Kim (who i met at Fredonia camp) is going to be there too. So at least I'll know one person.
And there's a whole lot more going on, but I"m not going to go into here because I've already have written too much in my journal. I'm sick of being sad. But I can't help it.

Once tagged by this entry, the assignment is to write a blog entry of some kind with six random facts about you. then, pick six of your friends and tag them; no tag backs.
1) I have a huge fear of permenently ruining my voice, and having to go into sign language as a career.
2) I sometimes think that I'm a better singer than I really am.
3) I really enjoy drinking soda out of the big 2 liter bottle.
4) I'm scared about going to college.
5) I'm also scared for my sister.
6) When I go to bed, it takes me a while to get comfortable because i hate when I can feel the back of my shoulder blades on the mattress. Now if that isn't random, then I don't know what is.

So, I don't "blog" anymore. Oh well.
I've been so busy too. I rarely am ever just sitting at my house. The whole month of September is kind of a blur, because it was by so fast. Homecoming was so early, so building the float was so hectic. There was so much drama that went along with it. Apparently, a majority of the class didn't like our idea for the float, and wanted to do something else. So we have float meetings. And who shows up? Just the officers. Nobody ever showed up about not liking the float, other than Eileen, but she's an officer (but maybe not for long).
We did get the float done though, and we had some good turn outs at our float buildings once or twice. But it was hard to get everyone there because everyone works and were getting their senior pictures done also. And Elise got sick with bronchitis and pneumonia, so it was hard to have meetings since they were at her house. We ended up getting 2nd place, the Juniors got first. They did Monopoly as their theme, but they didn't use like any "flowers". I mean, it's not in the guildines that you have to make flowers, you just can't have any bare wood showing. But they just paited everything, where we covered our whole thing with flowers and spray painted our design over it. I believe that ours was more creative, theirs was just bigger and in-your-face. Oh well, at least we broke our Third-Place-Curse.
And work is so hectic. I've almost quit twice. But last night and Tuesday weren't bad. I mean, I'm still learning, I guess. But everyone there is just to stingy. But I've found the people that I like to work with, so I try to stick around them. I'm going into The Beef tomorrow to see if I can get a job there though. My friend Kaitlin told me to go in and talk to the manager there about jobs, because their hiring and there's a chance I might just get hired on the spot. I was just thinking about quitting the Old Library and just workingn somewhere else, but now I'm thinking about getting a second job. Then if I feel that I can't control both, then I'll quit the one I don't enjoy as much. Agh. I hate work. I wanted a job so bad, and now that I have one, I just complain about it.
My senior pictures were good, and I'll be picking them up someday in November. A lot of people who went to the company I went to didn't like how their pictures turned out, but I actaully really liked mine.
And now, I'm just relaxing. I don't really have anything else coming up other than Homeless Huskies, which I should try to find a box soon. I was just going to schedule a college visit on that day, but it's my senior year, I might as well go, right? I'll deal with the cold, unless it's REALLY cold. Then I'll have my mom write me a note. There.
Okay, how bout that for an update?
