Beautiful Day

"It's a beautiful day; the sky falls and you feel like it's a beautiful day. Don’t let it get away."

The trip was probably the most fun I've had in awhile, I felt completely stress-free (except before the competition, of course), and I haven't felt that way in forever! It was amazing, and I shall explain everything in this post: (so it should be incredibly long) :)

I had to get up at 4:00, went to the school at around 5:45, then we left at about 6:30, I think. We rode in the charter bus (a very fancy bus) until about 11, where we got out to go to the Capitol. Luckily we did the most boring thing first, so it wouldn't end up being a very anti-climatic trip. We did a scavenger hunt there, and we split up into groups of four, with my roommates and one of my guys friends, which lasted for not that long, we left probably after an hour, and ate lunch on the bus. Now, I should mention, that I got the "worst" seat on the bus, behind him. Yep, you may be thinking "How could that be the worst??" Well, he shakes his leg without thinking, and he's tall. So my entire seat was shaking for most of the time we were on the bus. But it was fine. :)

Enough about him (for now, at least). After we left the Capitol we went to the Natural Bridge Caverns, which you can read about here and see some pictures of it. It was amazing, though our orchestra director said, since it was underground, that it should be cold. But no, it was ridiculously humid and hot. But it was still fun, and it was so amazing down there. :)

After that we went to the hotel, where we got ready to go to dinner, and organized all of our bags and stuff in our rooms. We went to a Mexican restaurant, where after we could go shopping, but of course our table didn't get finished until much later than everyone else's, so we didn't get a chance to shop. :( Our food came out incredibly late, and they forgot to give us menus when we first got there. Which I don't know how that happened. But my friends and I (my roommates) just joked around and came up with a ridiculous amount of inside jokes. :)

After that we went back to the hotel, which we got lost on the way there (we got lost many times during the trip).

We woke up at 5:30, went downstairs and ate breakfast, came back upstairs and got ready for our competition. We did amazing there-we got a superior rating! Which is the best you can get. :) Both of our orchestras got superior, and we both did an amazing performance, but not our best, I'm almost positive that everyone wanted to burn that music we had played it so much. We left for the hotel after (and got lost, again, trying to find our way back to it). When we got back we went back up to get ready for SeaWorld! It was a ton of fun, we went on all of the roller coasters that were there, and I found out my addiction to them. I used to be terrified of them, but now I love them. My friends and I also go to pet a dolphin. There was a "morbidly obese" one there, whom I thought was adorable. Then after we went to see Shamu (because you have to when you go there (;) And a few other shows.

We left there and went to dinner at a pizza/gaming place. We went go karting and played all of the ridiculously lame games that were there. It was a ton of fun. :) Though, I know think that that guy I mentioned way back in my old blog (click here! and ignore the blog title, I never changed it back. :P) likes me. I'm almost positive now. He wanted me to play a racing game with him, which I sucked at, by the way, never let me drive, ever. And, I don't know, I just get that feeling, y'know? Different then what I felt with him.

Then we went back to the hotel, where my friends and I prank called our guy friend's room, then we went up to their room and hung out for awhile.

We got to sleep in for a bit longer then we did the day before. We woke up at around 8, then went downstairs to eat breakfast. Luckily, my friends and I got the last three seats to our guy friends table, which was all guys, including him. The girls that usually are attached to them gave us dirty looks as they passed, it was pretty great. :)

We went to the Alamo, which I was disappointed. We didn't get to see the basement of the Alamo. (; Hah, just kidding. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click here to see the movie on YouTube. (I think it's part 6.) It's one of the most stupid movies ever, just thought it was kind of funny. :P

We didn't do much there, just walked around and went to the gift shop. It was pretty cool. :)

Then after, we went to Six Flags, which was probably the best part of the trip. We went on a butt load of roller coasters. Well, as much as we could go on, because the lines were so long.

At 8 we went to our awards ceremony, where we got three trophies from the competition on Friday. It was a ton of fun.

Then after that we went on one last roller coaster, probably the worst one you could go on at night. :) First, you go backwards, up really high. All the while you're looking down, able to see how high you are and feeling like you're going to fall out. Then you go forwards really fast, then when you get back up to the other high point, you go back down backwards, then forward again. Probably one of the best rides that I went on yesterday. :)

We took an orchestra picture right before we left. *Note to self: remember what happened there.* Not going to post about it, it's nothing bad or embarrassing, don't worry. :) It did have something to do with him.. (;

Then we left Six Flags at 9:30, and rode back home. We didn't get back until about 3:30 in the morning. It was disappointing to go back home, it was a ton of fun.

That was my weekend, I do not want to go back to school tomorrow.

Peace. :)

krl said...

someone said...

wow, i don't think i've ever had that much fun in my life.

krl said...

what james said was fascist and self centered. so much for genius.

and i have actually been listening too rap like mf doom, madvillain and spank rock.

but not necessarily enjoying them,

to be a great musician, you must explore music from all genres and perspectives. thats why radiohead, as a whole are so great. each of them like a certain taste;

thom - electronic and rap
jonny - jazz and dub raggae
phil - folk and acoustic
ed - latin
colin - 70s/80s pop/rock

and they all have their love of alternative/indie
