Another week flies by...

Dang it... where is the time going? It's already been a week since I've last blogged about anything. This just shows how boring my life is right now. Nothing new is going on, just working through some prep work for Creation and the lake, and just making sure everything is ready to go. I really have nothing to say, so I'm just going to leave it at that for now, but if something comes up, I will let you know!

Hello from my back porch

So, it's summer time, which means I spend my evenings/nights on the porch, watching the stars, the moon, and whatever i can find on netflix... And tonight, it happens to be "Then She Found Me" (2007) with Helen Hunt, Bette Midler, Matthew Broderick, and Colin Firth. It's the story of a New York schoolteacher who hits a midlife crisis. Her husband leaves her, her adopted mother dies, and her birth mother, an eccentric talk show host, comes to find her. The story unfolds into a comedic tale of love, relationships, and what happens in between, aka a courtship with the father of one of her students.

Wow... I should do that for a living... watch movies and write a synopsis. Okay, anyways, what else is going on right now... I have an organ gig at Frederick Pres. Church on Sunday, and I have marching band camp tomorrow, and I couldn't be more excited!!! I love band... I know I'm a dork, and I love Drum Corp, aka, band on CRACK!!! One day soon I hope... I will be the conductor of Phantom Regiment. It would be AMAZING!!! Maybe I could actually work for them once I age out, or I'll get an amazing band program of my own.

That brings me to another great idea I had... I want a symphonic orchestra at whatever high school I work at. I want to be able to play pop songs, show tunes, and other amazing arrangements on top of the traditionally amazing orchestra repertoire out there. Picture, a concert of show tunes, and other pieces that require a singer, or a group, and that concert would have amazing effects that would require it to be outdoors, say on a stage on a football field... Basically, go watch a Celtic Woman dvd, especially one of the ones where they are outside, at slane castle, or at Powercourts Garden. That is something I would like to do with an amazing group of high schoolers.

Wow, this is completely random, but I'm glad to get this on paper/blog/internet/whatever.

ANYWAYS!!! Everyone have a good night/week/summer or how ever long it is until I post again!
