Skin & School
My skin has been breaking out lately. i mean, it's not that obvious to the public, but it is to me. and it's annoying, because, well i don't want to brag but i have freaking awesome skin and now my chin and upper forehead and nose are all....i dunno. not smooth.
Anyway, back to school today. It was better than expected. Sigh, that doesn't mean I want to go back tomorrow though!

Well, fourth quarter starts tomorrow. I guess it will be good because that means the end of block scheduling, and we will have activity period three times a wekk as opposed to two. My goal for 4th quarter is to do all of my homework. I've seriously been slacking off on it all third quarter, and, that can't really be good for me.
anyway, easter has been fun. lots of candy. isabel suprised me for a visit =D what a cool girl.
I guess that's all i have to say!

This is a great song.
Well, this journal has had a great run. I've had it since sixth grade. Since my first "boyfriend"; it has documented my life so much. From 12 years old to 14. That's pretty long. I've been commenting less lately. I think I should stop it. I think that I'm going to print the entire thing out, and retire this journal pretty soon.
Anyway, just a head's up.
I spent the last 3 days with lilly and cassie. so immensly fun, lol, dont' even ask. it was phenominal! Love those girls so much. They're like sisters.

Ok, so, it's name time again. I like the name Kurt. Except it reminds me of Kurt Cobain, which is very, very sad. Sometimes he spalled his name like "kurdt". I sort of like Kurdt better.

makeup brushes and ghetto talk
So. Today was alright. It was pretty much like every other day...ah, so mundane and average. Sometimes I just wish that sometihng exciting would happen.
Anyway, I'm going to sounds like a total dork when I say this. But. Today I was really excited because my mom got free cosmetics with this foundation she bought, so I totally got 2 free lipsticks, an eyeshadow, makeup brushes, and a makeup case from estee lauder. score! then i organized all my makeup and went to violin.
my violin lesson was cool. im excited to practice the duet with melanie more because i know that my harmony rocks now.
anyway, now that i'm all clean from my shower and moisturizzzed, i gots to go. yaay, ghetto talk!

homework, sickness, and shaving my legs.
School really isn't that bad, if you just do your homework. I mean. Homework is a bitch, I know, but if you just...complete it, than you don't have anything really to worry about! That being said, I should probably start on my homework, but, whatever. I'll do it later, lol.
My sister is sick. She has some lung thing, an infection, so she's busy in her bed recouperating.
I sort of like shaving my legs. It makes me feel like im accomplishing something, plus, they feel very smooth afterwards. And i like putting lotion all on them because then they're even more smooth. I <3 my legs, lol. That's about it for this weekend's entry.

Im jelous of whoever Shaun White's girlfriend is. Sigh. He's so hot! Why do I like guys with long hair? (more importantly, mind you, why do I like Chris if his hair isn't nearly as long as I like it?) lol.

What I Think.
I saw Zach today. I was riding in the car with my mom, and he was unloading grocerys. His hair was way long and he got really skinny, alas, i only saw the back of his head. So many he grew a beard, too, but i find that unlikely. You know, at first i was like OMGOMGOMGOMG. And then I realized that I'm only reacting becuase i feel as though I have to. It's ok. I'm ok! And that's the beauty of it, people. I. am. o. k.
In other news, i think the people don't give boys enough credit.
In even other other news, tonight is my orchestra concert! ahh, I love orchestra. I'm very excited/nervous because i hope we don't screw up.

I'm sick of all of this bullshit that I constantly have to put up with in my house. All I want are motherfucking rules. Rules! But can anyone give me rules? Can anyone give me consistancy? Can anyone give me some sort of mutherfucking comfort without yelling at me for wanting RULES THAT PEOPLE FOLLW? NO!

I think I want to be athletic. I mean, I like my body, it's pretty nice. But my team was getting killed in basketball and I couldn't help but think what a little excersize would do for me.
Yesterday I went to Melanie's and worked on our solo and ensamble peice for awhile. omg, my harmony is so freaking hard. i'll have to practice it like crazayyy. anyway, after we practiced we made brownies and ventures over to Tina's to ask for an egg because we only had one. We were like "um..can we have an egg?" ahh, it was the coolest.
today im just sort of chilling out and not doing homework. reading my new Allure magazine for the 700th time and talking to my boyfriend and Isabel. Ah, the life of Courtney is so eventful! no, i lied. hahah.

My Top 5 Favorite Bands/Artists (And Why)
1)Mindless Self Indulgence
I like this band because they (this sounds cliche)...but well, they don't care what anyone else thinks of them. And the lead singer sings SO high. God, it's amazing. Plus, their bassist and drummer are both girls, which ROCKS, because most of the time those insturments are played by guys. MSI's music is un-like anyone else's. Electric, upbeat, not particurally something to dance to, but you want to understand their pain, always. And then sing along. My Favorite Song: Clarrisa and Kill The Rock
Wow, I love them because they're lyrics are amazing. Each line flows into the next so honestly. The music is added around the lyrics. Their sound is really organtic. So like, raw. Favorite Song: Mine's Not A High Horse and New Slang
They're so popular, but I liked them before anyone else so HAH. ALl of their songs are dramatic and grab your attention. They're creepy! My favorite song from them is Andy, You're A Star
The lead singer of this band has a really direct voice, and I don't like it. But everything else about their music rocks. Does that make sense? If they had another lead singer, god, the possibilities would be endless! <3 stellastarr*. Favorite song:My Coco and A Million Reasons
From a white girls' perspective: his lyrics are amazing. And he's hot. and his music is intense and fun, and just...the ultimate rapper. I love rap! Favorite Song: Breathe In Breathe Out

SO. Isa is in military school and doesn't like the guitar. BUT. I RECRUITED JOEL!!! So now Joel is our guitarist, Will is still obviously the bassist, im the lead singer, and we're going to recruit Matt Dzerinski for Drums.
I'm pretty excited! Still need an awesome band name, though...

haha. I'm so cool...
I'm like...really into music. It's good! I wish I was in a band. Jeremy is going to get a drumset, but Will wouldn't want him in our band. And then, Isa would have to learn how to play guitar. Sigh! Boys.
See, see how cool of a group they are?

Boring, boring, boring stuff.
Today was actually quite productive. I woke up at 10:45 and went to Starbucks with my sister for breakfast. Then I came home at about noon and CLEANED MY ROOM. Wow, I never realized that I have so many bras. After everything was ceaned, I went downstairs and did my homework.
Well, let me tell you, that took a whole lot of time. Like, 2 and one-half hours? Everything was relitivly easy except for math, because it was equations. Seriously, I had been getting great grades in math, and then what happens? Equations come along. Well, damn them to hell. Anyway, I finished all of my homework at 4:15. It was soooo early for me! I am actually quite proud of myself. Way to go, Courtney, way to go.
Um, so now I'm online and was working AHEAD on my e-congress packet. The packet is due THURSDAY, and I'm more than half-way done! Maybe being a good student isn't such a bad thing, once you get the hang of it? Oh well. It will be nice to wake up tomorrow and not do homework.
Anyway. I have play reheral all next week from 3-6. That should be tres tireing, but it's all for the good of the play! Man, I hope it will rock as much as last year's play. Guys and Dolls was the best!
And now I'm off to watch t.v
