band

BrainStorm

I am officially in love with this song as it makes me feel so happy and have warm fuzzies inside. Renārs Kaupers did an absolutely amazing job in writing this song and performing it (as far as I have seen) except for his weird legs and huge eyes parts, it’s really endearing.

I think the lyrics speak to my heart for some reason, and just make me feel warm fuzzies inside.

Oh and if there are non-Eurovision fanatics reading, BrainStorm was a Latvian group from 2000 that sang My Star. I love it, I love it, I love it. I want to marry it.

Robb was nice enough to find a nice link to the video on YouTube, which was nice, but I would rather see the whole performance evening along with all of them since 2000 😉 *cough Tobias* :DD

Anyways 😀 I should be in bed as it’s 3.00 on the button, and I’m trying to alter my sleep habits so I’m more in my timezone and not Australia/New Zealand 😉

Random thought of the day, I forgot that it’s the national holiday on Saturday, and I also forgot that it was Thursday today, thinking it was Wednesday was quite embarrassing, oh well!

I will be doing a marching band performance (x2) on Saturday, so wish me luck to not fall flat on my face and ruin my instrument 😛 Bahh Canada Day… I would rather celebrate a more important holiday like Midsommartid :DD but people here are ignorant of other culture’s holidays.

Sigh, another reason why I’m trapped here!

5 Days ‘Till Beach

Wow the time has gone so quickly and there is only five more days until I leave to the USA for a beach vacation-weekend! Since I don’t want to forget anything, I am going to talk a little bit about it and make a To-Do list for myself to remind me of what I need to do!

I have never been to this part of the USA, since I had only ever been to Ohio and New Hampshire, so I don’t know what to expect really. I also haven’t been to the ocean at all, so I don’t know what to expect in terms of the beach and the water and such. It’s fairly far south, so it might be really hot (but I’m not quite sure what kind; hot and dry or moist and humid?) I will do some reasearch and hope to God that it doesn’t rain, because that would make me cry!

Okej, so here we go with the To-Do

To-Do List:
1) Get Haircut
2) Pack clothing (See To Bring List)
3) Go to bank to get US Funds
4) Talk to Jim about when I will arrive at his house and when we leave
5) Personal grooming
6) Get present for Jean
7) Figure out how I’m going to tan without burning to a crisp

To-Bring List:
1) Pillow
2) Bag / Blanket
3) Sunscreen
4) Towel / swim-shorts
5) Tanning shorts
6) Disco clothes
7) Toothbrush / toothpaste / shampoo / soap / etc.
8) Book(s) to read
9) Music (somehow)
10) Digi-Camera
11) Water bottle
12) Passport(s)

So if I forgot anything I will just add it to the list, so that I won’t forget it before Friday when we leave! B) *hops around* This is so exciting, and I can’t wait!

In other news today, I have a ban concert tonight for the opening of a new school, so I best be practicing my instrument sometime today, since I have like 5 hours to familiarize myself with the tunes, which are sometimes very difficult.

I was in the yard yesterday working very much, so I am quite tired today, but it’s hotter and I am too lazy to go outside, so sadly because I am not there, my parents are working slowly and no being very proactive. If I’m there yelling at them to keep going and telling them what to do, they work much better..

As someone told me one day: “Crack that whip osky!!” :yes:
