Next Entry

Starting off...

So I guess this is it, the first entry. It's funny, I had plenty to say, but now it seems to have vanished. I hate that. It seems to happen a lot, whether it be something fun, or a certain melody, or what I was supposed to do today.
It being my last day off for a while, I had a lot of things to do today. Laundry, homework, cleaning, everything that's been waiting for a week. Did I get any of it done? Of course not, though I did chop up that certain squash that had been giving me dirty looks for a week. I hate sarcastic vegtables.
Something cool happened in orchestra today. We were through the 1st movement of the Beethoven 7 and all of a sudden I was so happy. The music was fast, like a jig, and it hit me that that's why I love music. I love the emotions it evokes, how a simple melody can make me smile or a plantitive note can make me cry. When I play something, I get caught up in the feelings, and let myself forget about everything but the note I'm playing. It's like I can leave the world behind and simply exist.
Sounds silly, doesn't it? It's hard to explain, you have to experience it before you know.
We got out early, so I'm in the library, passing time before I have to go to handbell choir. Thought that since I was here, I might as well start this thing.
I always thought a journal was supposed to be private, but I can see why the idea of relative anonyminity (?) would appeal to me. Having read my friend's journals, I understand why people have such a fascination with this. I don't know how much I'll write about, but who knows.
That said, let the fun begain. (And the peasants rejoiced, yay.)
