Despite the opinion of, my theme song is NOT “Independant Woman” by Destiny’s Child. I KNOW what my theme song is, and have decided to post the lyrics. I tried looking for a midi, but I should have known, by the title of the song, that I wouldn’t be able to find one.

You Can’t Win (From “The Wiz”)

You can’t win
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game
People keep sayin’
Things are gonna change
But they look just like they’re staying the same
You get in
Way over your head
And you’ve only got yourself to blame

You can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

You can’t win
The world keeps movin’
And you’re standin’ far behind
People keep sayin’
Things ‘ll get better
Just to ease your state of mind
So you lay back
And you smoke that smoke
And you drink your glass of wine

You can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

You can’t win
You can’t win
No way if your story stays the same
You ain’t winnin’
But it’s nice to see you
I’m awfully glad you came
Better cool it
‘Cause it ain’t about losin’
Then the world has got no shame

You can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

You can’t win
You can’t win
You can’t break even
Ain’t the way
It’s supposed to be
You’ll be spendin’
Your little bit of money
While someone else ride free
Learn your lesson, refuel your mind
Before some turkey blows out your flame


Portillo’s cheeseburgers are my weakness. I could be totally and completely FULL, and still eat a cheeseburger from Portillo’s. Ohh man I am going to Hell for it.

The biggest plothole in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is Jeannie. Think about it. She never goes to class, she just walks around in the halls, and then says that if she ever ditched class, she’d get caught. Then she tells Charlie Sheen that her name is Jean, but her friends call her Shauna. What’s up with that?

I think starting next week, American Idol should work like this: you call in for who you want OFF. If they’re votin people off, that’;s the way it should work. Seriously. Carmen needs to leave. I can’t believe she hasn’t ever even been in the bottom three. I also can’t get over how much she looks like Kara Edmark. Too bad Olivia Newton-John wasn’t there LAST week to hear Carmen’s rendition of Hopelessly Devoted To You. I voted for Clay again last night. The final two are so gonna be him and Ruben. No question.

Drew wants to come to prom with me. He’s let me down so many times, I am worried that I will spend $90 on tix for prom and post prom and then he won’t show up. I told him that’s how I feel and he said he’s sorry I feel that way. It’s his own fault. I decided that if he wants to come to prom with me, then he is going to have to pay for it and I want money in the mail before I buy the tickets. Otherwise, no way.

According to I am worth exactly: $1,501,054.00.

You are now listening to “Seasons of Love” from Rent.

Two days ago I had a dream that I called Casey’s house and his mom told me he was in the hospital because somebody tried to assassinate him. Last night I had a dream that we were married (same ages we are now) but he like didn’t pay any attention to me. This is sooo frustrating! I SWEAR I don’t like him.

I watched Grease in Spanish subtitles today. “Pussy wagon” is just “carro sexual.” Hahahahaha.

I was finally able to change the time zone on here. Hooray.

There were only 5 of us in gym today, on account of Sound being in Nashville. It was me, Melody, Katie Berns, Michelle, and Julian. We walked around for like 10 minutes before finding out that Miss Campbell didn’t bother showing up. We were right about to go to choir when this gym teacher asked us if we were in Miss Campbell’s class and then took us to Mr Geary’s class to join them. Taylor Tortorello is in that class and I have never talked to her before but she had invited us to join them. She seems really nice. I was tempted to ask her is her sister and Casey are still going out, but I didn’t. Why do I even care? Ugh! Anyway, because it was a REAL gym class, we actually had to work. Ugh. I almost passed out. No joke. At 12:35pm, Melody goes “Oh man! At noon there was a walkout to protest the war! I am pro war, but we totally could have gone to that!” Grrr.

I spent lunch drinking LOTS of water and laying on the floor of the band room, because I was about to pass out. Ugh lunch is gonna suck again tomorrow. Almost everyone went to the cafeteria. Eric Neissner recorded himself playing on the piano/keyboard and then pressed play and jammed to himself on the drums hehe. KARIS, COME BACK FROM NASHVILLE!!!

I am so glad FRIENDS was a repeat tonight, because I would have missed 20 minutes of it due to them reporting on stupid protesters in Chicago that are blocking traffic. They kept saying the same thing over and over again for 20 minutes. *Shakes fist*

I watched this new show “On the Spot” that started tonight. It is supposedly improvised. Umm one, you can totally tell that the improvised stuff was totally rehearsed and two, whoever taught those people improv, should be killed by firing squad. I can’t even give details of the show, because just thinking about it will make me throw up.

AquaraChik: you’re smart—what do you call it when a line of people with guns stand in front of you and shoot at you?
TuuvanEQ: firing squad or firing line
AquaraChik: God bless you, andrew cole
TuuvanEQ: he blessed us all with my birth

I tlaked to a girl from Zionsville Royalaires. She was relaly nice. I told her how much I appreciated their show. She had to go because she had to write a thesis paper for Royalaires. I’m glad we don’t have to write papers for Lights!

BTC14: is she hot?
AquaraChik: she acts like me, you don’t want her
BTC14: your damn right
BTC14: haha

Gage X Swordz X: welcome to war
AquaraChik: ya know, i wouldn’t feel wlecome, had it not been for your IM
Gage X Swordz X: good

I forgot to add the other day that Zionsville did a short reprise of “Run, Freedom, Run” (which is STILL in my head and was so good that I want the Urinetown soundtrack now). George turned around and said to me, “That song ended twice!”

Melissa Plucinski said that Mr Neubauer said that Mr Raab (one of the judges at the invitational) said that if Lights had competed on Saturday, we would have won the women’s division. I have a VERY hard time believing that.

I voted for Clay again last night. Ruben was awesome too, but Clay is my boy. I told Carly the other day that I think Carmen sounds like her and she goes “Really? I think Carmen sucks.” And I REALLY wanted to say “exactly,” but I didn’t so I said “Oh. I’m sorry.” It made me feel bad for saying anything. I can’t get over how much Carmen looks like Kara Edmark. But seriously, I can’t believe Carmen has gotten as far as she has. I can’t believe that SIMON picked her for a wildcard. And the fact that two people have been voted off and SHE IS STILL THERE! What’s up with that?! And she totally BUTCHERED “Hopelessly Devoted to You.” Ugh she makes me mad!

So back in November, Neubauer said that Sound is singing Pledge of Allegiance, because by the time they get to competition, we’ll be at war. Well it looks like he got his wish. They leave for Nationals at midnight tonight. I still think singing the Pledge of Allegiance and Living in America, and having a HUGE American flag as a backdrop is saying to the judges “If you don’t give us a lot of points, you’re saying that you don’t love our country.” And I wish he could have picked two other songs instead of those and to lose the flag too. Well, whatever. We’ll see what happens with Nationals and their other comp next month.

I had a dream last night that I had, in my possession, a stuffed animal that belonged to Casey. He came to my house (Which didn’t look like my house) to get it. I gave it to him, and he started to leave, but then he turned around and came towards me and kissed me. And it was….amazing. I don’t understand this. I don’t even like him.

So yesterday was the invitational. Anderson-Highland arrived at 6:15am—more than an hour early. Then they stood in front of the bear booth and demanded that they start selling them an hour early.

I took the Leading Ladies to all their places. I can’t take Cassie and Lauren. All they did the whole time was argue and complain. I felt so bad that the Leading Ladies had to listen to it. Then after they were done with performing and video viewing and pics and stuff, the mothers brought food for them and Cassie goes “Man, all we get is one measly (sp?) meal ticket.” And I said “Cassie, don’t complain.” and she goes “Jeez, you need to take a chill pill and quit nagging.” That was the last straw. It was not even 9:30am and I left and never set foot in that room again.

The first group I saw were The Faces. Oh my gosh. They were so good, I almost started crying. I am so upset that Amanda (Soloist in Roll Jordan) didn’t win for best female soloist. The first note in their whole show gave me chills. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. I’m’a see if it’s not too late to buy a tape of them.

Mr Carroll still choreographed Zionsville and Rolling Meadows. Blah.

I saw Frank and he said “Hi friends” to me and Hayley and I was like “So I’m your friend?” And he goes “You don’t have to be if you don’t want…you act like it was an insult..” And I was like “it was” and he walked away and didn’t talk to me for the rest of the day. Thank God.

I saw Dan Clark and he started talking to me, and then Frank came up and started talking to him and Dan stopped talking to me mid conversation. Then I was walking and saw Brian and HE started talking to me and someone else came and started talking to him and he walked away from me too!

Then I saw John Cape. Who had no facial hair and claims it was an accident. John Cape really is a genuinely nice person. I don’t think he has ever been not nice to me. He actually took like 5 minutes to have a conversation with me. God bless him.

I saw everyone, except Courtney and Kristen. Brad Hawk was even there. Valerie was there and she just kept looking at me the whole day. The only time she talked to me was to say that she needed help finding Kimmie Edmark, who didn’t talk to me either. Valerie makes me mad.

It turns out that the whole thing with Ricky on his sn last month at 5am on a Saturday…it was someone else on his sn. So he didn’t block me either. I Ricky.

Casey DeCaluwe’s cousin was there and she told me that he went to Germany to play soccer (Well, I suoppose it’s not called “soccer” there) and messed up his back and has been in the hospital for a few months. So I guess he wasn’t home this week anyway. Poor boy; I hope he’s okay.

Lights went to warm up and Neubauer goes “You guys are singing in tune.” We rocked the hizouse. We went right before prelim awards, so more people saw us than Sound. We got off stage and all the alums were sittin up front and John and Ricky said good job on my solo and so did Brian (George had to host his group so he wasn’t there). AT some point and time during our show, I saw Brian whisper something to someone next to him. Me, having a bad memory and being paranoid, said to him “Did you whisper something to someone during my solo or was I seeing things?” And he said “uhhh I think you’re seeing things.” Then he was like “No, I did whisper something to someone. I said your solo was horrible.” So I smacked him. And he was like “Oww that hurt!” I really didn’t hit him as hard as I could. He’s such a baby. Brian, if you’re reading this, I love you . This girl from Faces came up to me and said we were really good and she was glad they don’t have to compete against us because we would beat them. Yeah right. We were awesome yesterday, but we could never beat the Faces.

Katie Berns rushed up to me before the beginning of finals and was like “I was looking for you!! There were 3 guys in the hall and one of them asked if they had seen Mundelein and the other two said they had seen Lights, but not Sound. The one guy asked if we were any good and the two guys said yes and there was one soloist who had brown hair and was singing about a mountain that was really hot.” That’s me!!!!! I wish I knew what school they were from.

The best part of the whole day was during Sound, right after the costume change, I turned around to see reactions and John Cape, Valerie, and Frank all had their jaws on the floor.

I was really impressed with Zionsville. They were awesome. They totally sucked last year and won. They got second runner up this year, but they were up against tough competition. Faces won women’;s Grand Champ (best vocals) and Anderson-Highland got 1st runner up and best choreo. Mixed was 3rd runner up Eisenhower Blue Island Express (Johnnie Campbell best male soloist in a show and 3rd place soloist form solo competition), 2nd runner up Zionsville Royalaires, 1st runner up Crete-Monee Cavaliers, Grand Champs Anderson-Highland Singers (who sang Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?). Crete totally got ripped off. Nobody got on stage to celebrate with Anderson, because we all thought Crete should win. Though I am hearing that there was a tie between Crete and Anderson and they had to decide who should win. They should have just announced the tie. I heard from the hosts that Anderson were all stuck up anyway. I love Crete, they’re so nice.

It was the first day of the term today so we got out at 1:15pm. Which is good, because that meant that we should be out by 10pm. They gave us from 1:30-5 to decorate our rooms. I must have been in mine for 20 minutes total. I can’t take Cassie and Lauren arguing and refusing to get along. Ugh, I am in the outcast room. Nobody likes any of us. And Clinton (person, not showchoir) is next door to us cuz he has Rolling Meadows New Directions. I feel bad for everyone from Rolling Meadows. They get four rejects and Sandy. Well there’s nothing wrong with Sandy. I spent about 45 mins talking to Erin Laurel. I also talked to Sandy for a while, as well as Kimmy. Oh and Ashley Scarbrough was there. After we were done with our room, I went to look at the other rooms and found Karis. She seriously IS my kindred spirit, it’s freaky. (I figured out how to make private entries, and if I had time, I’d take one to express my complete and utter contempt for Frank Stanley). SO then we went to the cafeteria at like 5:15 and waited a half hour for our pizza. We ate dinner and the rooms were judged. Then at 7 we got called to do a sound check. They also needed to check the lights. And they needed to see Sound and Lights. Haha it’s so confusing. When we went, and I went to do my solo, I heard “Go Jami.” But it wasn;’t George, it was Jimbob. Which is odd because George is the biggest supporter of my solo and Jimbob doesn’t, like, talk to me. Then afterwards when I asked George how I sounded and he totally walked away without answering. Well tomorrow I will definitely be screaming “Jimbob is hot,” instead of “George is hot.” There are wireless microphones, so I thought I wouldn’t have problems if I used one, cuz that’s what happened at Manteno. Well I was wrong. So afterwards, I practiced. I should be fine tomorrow. Please God. Well I gotta go to bed. Have 6am call time, gotta go to bed. Still have to shave my legs and stuff in the morning. Blah. I am so lazy.
