Quilt (a lil poem/song I'm working on)

I came up with this little song poem last night while I was supposed to be studying for my Environmental Science exam. Song ideas always get in the way of what I`m supposed to be doing, but I gladly welcome my ideas and halt everything I`m doing to write them down. Ya never wanna loose a song idea, especially a good one. One must be grateful for them, because the idea could just fly off and migrate to another songwriter`s head if it`s not welcomed to one`s heart and thought. I have no idea where my song thoughts come from, out of the abyss of my mind I guess, and yet when I process them, they make total sense and relevance to my life. But then again, no wonder haha, its my own mind.

 Like this one, after I wrote it down I thought gee, this is just  like my brother`s current situation (He is 19). Couldn't make up his mind about what he wanted to do in university or college, mainly because he just loved to party and spent no time giving his post secondary life any planning. Now he`s lost and doesn`t know what to do, going from job to job, a little frightened about his future. Sometimes my mom and I get madly ticked at him, because he`s not doing anything decent towards his future. But making this song I think I`ll cut him some slack and consider the fact that we can all get strayed in the path towards our future if we have no dream strong enough to devote our will to.

No matter how troublesome and indecisive a person is you can`t loose hope on them, they just need to find their personal calling. Not all will find it right off. And so it is with people like my brother, he has yet to dig up what fills his soul with sunshine the most, and until he does he will search and mess up. He just needs encouragement and love, though we give him lots I think, he just doesn't absorb it very well. Sure do needa work on my hope towards him though. Gonna do that hopefully, through this song.
Here it is:

``Troublesome Bouquet``

Oh that weak-willed darling
Keeps on changing, his mind
But I believe he`s on to something
Don`t you doubt it, he`ll find

The root and centre and the core of it all
What makes his heart, shriek with joy
Until he finds it he`ll stray s`more
Getting there`s the trouble, but don`t lose your hope

Trickle and trickle
Till the bucket is full
Sun shows its face
After the storm

Don`t forget that you`re a part of this Earth
If nature lives on hope, make sure
You don`t forget yours

Moon has its phases
Till it becomes whole
No heart is born
Knowing it all

Dream he`ll find the joy
That glues his life into love

Send good vibes down his road
Don`t block it, with negative outlooks

Dream your boy will complete
Not your dream, but is very own calling
Keep in mind his very heart`s yearning
To settle its restlessness

Tuck your thinking away
Bloom with hope for him

Yesterday my mom bought me some hot pink carnation flowers just for kicks. I was so happy to recieve them and I gave her just about five hugs and kisses. I love my mom, she never fails to surprise me, and in a way I'm not surprised she surprises me haha. Anyhow I loved the flowers lots. We have them in separate little bouquets around the house cheer up everything with flowery joy! So I decied to take some rather crappy webcam pics (because my camera is broken) with a little bunch of carnations to show you their love.
I bid you a beautiful day, and maybe some flowers to you on their way!

School is Almost Out : ]

School is about to end. I've got three more days left and two exams to write, tis my french and envrionmental science exams. Am I ready for them? Certainly not, but I've got the weekend to study, haha. Oh dear this school year has been so long, I am so very ready for it to come to a hault. I can't tell you how many all nighters I've had to pull this year because of the countless projects and assignments. Grade 11 has been the year of all nighters! Come the summer vacation  I'll ketch up on so much sleep; if I got the chance, I would sleep like sleeping beauty for years to make up for my lack of slumber! I am so very happy. YAAY!
So glad the end is near.


 And I can't wait for next year! My goodness I've got the most wonderful semesters next year, however one of my very clever friends would call it a "stoner semester" because I'll be taking the easiest cources. But I figured, heck...why not? Why take cources like grade 12 Functions, or Physics? I sure do respect all people who have the brains for those, but you wouldn't be ketching me taking those courses. Besides they're not a requirement for the college and university programs I'll be doing in the future. I decided I'm going to relax for grade 12 because its my last year. Thus I am taking two Music, one English, French, and two Photography cources. In total that makes 6; my seventh course counts as a repertoire jazz ensemble which I'll be singing in next year. I am so very excited!

I've also got some goals for the summer. I decided to write them down here so that I can look at them regularly and remember and accomplish all these things that would make my life wonderful.

Here they are:
  1. Get a job.
  2. Learn to drive and start geting my driver's licence.
  3. Maybe save up to buy an old 60's volkswagen van!!
  4. Grow my plants successfully with love.
  5. Save up and buy a new Nikon DSLR camera. (My feeble little Kodak camera broke)
  6. Buy myself a decent electric accoustic guitar and amp which I am very much in need of for gig purposes.
  7. Spend more time with my grandma and sew some dresses together.
  8. Loose some weight!
  9. Play many lovely gigs with my band.
  10. Go to as many concerts as I can!

♥ And so it shall be! Hopefully! God willing it'll be a wonderful summer. ♥
Have you any goals yerself? : ]

Brilliant Collaboration

I just had an idea...a rather brilliant idea. Wouldn't it be so incredible if the awesome, whimsical director Tim Burton got together with Joanna Newsom and did something together? I think they could make something epic if they collaborated on a project. Gonna dream about that now. :P
