NYC, baby!

And then strep throat. :/ But will start with NYC because it's much more interesting. :)
The PCA band left for NYC on Saturday 2 o'clock. We travelled on a bus for 16.5 hours which put us at the hotel at about 6:30. You should have seen us, we were like a bunch of zombies. We were (thankfully) forced to sleep (or at least be quiet) at 11, but sleeping on a bus means you mean get a couple of hours because it's not the most comfortable thing in the world. haha. So, yeah. It took me 2 hours to wake. My boyfriend was funny, he'd walk over to me ever 30 mins or so and say, "Are you awake yet?" Usually my answer was no and he'd walk away and come back later. haha. He's quite a morning person.
So after we had breakfast at the hotel and changed from our comfy clothes to our day clothes we got back on the bus and headed toward Ellis Island on a fairy (very cold). The museum there was amazing. I would highly recommend it if you ever go up there. It was interesting and sad to see how the immigrants we treated and learning all that went on there.
Then, we got back on the boat to go meet Lady Liberty. We didn't go up in the statue, but it was so incredible to actually SEE it so close!! After we were done there we headed back to NYC off the boat! (so cold on the boat, except in the covered part. haha) Then we were able to split up into groups and walk around for a little while. That was fun too. :) That's a basic summer of the first day, Thursday.
I need to go do make up work (since I'm not in school), but I will finish typing this later!! :)

6 Random Things

Random is such a wide word....
It can mean out of the blue, or it can mean something no-one knows about you. I will do 3 of each simply because I want too. :)
1) I used to play guitar and I want to start playing it more again. (I've started teaching myself new chords! :) )
2)I feel naked without a watch on my left arm.
3) I think that Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers (some people at school call them the "Joho's" haha) have taken over the world and can't sing. (Mainly the JoHo's.)
4) I'm drinking hot chocolate right now.
5) School starts in 28 minutes.
6) I have math first period today and history last.

Not only is it Valentine's Day...

But it's Leaving-For-New-York Day! :) The band from my school is going on a trip to New York. We leave today and come back Wednesday, the 18th. We're going to see Phantom of the Opera, Blue Man Group and all sorts of other cool stuff. I'm super excited. We leave at 2:30. Please pray for safe travels and for no-one to get sick or hurt. Last year my band director got so stressed she made herself really sick (typical musician ;) ). Fortunately for all us students, we are out of school on Monday and Tuesday and so we're only missing Wednesday which is a block day. (Normally we have 7 classes each day, but Wed and Thur we divide them up- 3 on Wed and 4 on Thur) So, we're not missing all our classes. Yay!
Well I'm hoping to leave seen because we have to meet at the school at 1:30 so I'm going to get off here and get ready to hit the road.
*sings, "On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again..."*
