sending you lots of love and (virtual) hugs and chocolate.
(random: what kind of chocolate do you like? milk or dark? I love dark chocolate and hate milk and my friend loves milk chocolate and hates dark, and she has a theory that everyone who loves one type hates the other.)
Sorry I didn't reply earlier, but hopefully you're feeling better by now? I know whenever I feel disappointed in myself, I have a good cry and indulge myself in lots of self-pity and over the course of a week, I slowly start to feel better. Rejection isn't the end of the world--it's pretty tough, but (as cheesy as it sounds) it'll be ok. Earlier this year, I got rejected from this science program, but my friend got in so it was a combination of jealousy and disappointment and bitterness. But I got over myself in a few days and now I'm hoping to get in next year.
So if you love to sing, then keep going for it. I love to write, but I never manage to win writing competitions, so I just tell myself that 1) judges are biased and 2) if I keep writing, I'll get better at it.
Also you can always rant to me. I won't mind, I promise. <3
Anyway, my day was okay. I felt a little tired and also a little sad and lonely. One of my friends said something that was supposed to be a joke, but instead it made me feel sad and annoyed. I always overreact to things, I guess, and I'm almost always annoyed at some of my friends. :/
So orchestra and music class are different because orchestra is mostly playing music and music class is for listening to music. We're going over the late-romantic/impressionalist period right now: so Wagner, Strauss, Debussy, Ravel, etc. What kind of music do you listen to? My iPod is slowly leaning towards more classical music, but I also like Ani DiFranco and Sara Bareilles a lot, and showtunes are fun to listen to.
One of our main projects in COLORS is folding origami cranes and raising money by asking people to donate $1 if they want to sign their name on a crane. Then we donate the cranes and the money to a hospital. We're supposed to fold 1000 cranes every year (bc of that Japanese legend). Unfortunately, we don't always meet that goal. But it's thanks to COLORS that I can practically fold cranes in my sleep. It's the only origami I know how to do lawl.
