Drawing Update :P

Hey guys :) So I realized that you all haven't seen my recent drawings :( So here they are! I can't do my usual shindig since I'm on my iPhone, but I'll do my best :D I'll Try to adjust this post with my usual shindig, but until then, you can just admire them :D

EDIT!!!!!

First off, I didn't draw this.  This was drawn by a twitter ponies user.  So anyway, she was asking for people who could redraw her avatar for obvious reasons. I took up the job, so I took ONLY THIS!
And drew this :) I'm so proud of it! But yeah.
This is another drawing... It's honestly not my best. Fluttershy and Pinkie look really... awkward.
I know that I posted this a while back, but it was just a sketch. I finally inked it this year! So now it's done :)
Thats my signature... If you care.
This is my serious face. I like the bottom of the drawing, how it fades out. :)
This is my friends FAVORITE! This is also my first pony drawing EVER! and It's really good, if I do say so myself :)
Treble riff. I got bored, so the wallpaper may never be finished...
FUTURE TWILIGHT!!!!!!!!! I gave this to my twin friends for their birthday, and it's pretty epic.
and then of course, AppleJack. The reason I drew her is cause my 6 year old cousin was turning 7, and I need to find an 11 by 14 envelope to send it to her :) So I'm working on that. It's my first time drawing AJ, so it's pretty good I think :)

Alrighty, here's my future drawing list too...
SO..... EPIC.....
Something along the adorableness of Shining and Cadence... I just don't know what.

So Yeah :)

The Most Depressing Story On The Planet.... Not Kidding




Okay, So In 8th grade, we did a unit on short stories. We had the option of doing Realistic Fiction, Science Fiction, or Historical Fiction. I wanted to do Fantasy, but in the end, I ended up doing Realistic Fiction about a week into the project. And for some odd reason, I chose to write a lovely story about a girl who's best friend committed suicide. Obviously, It was über depressing. So here you go. My depressing story from 8th grade. As horrible as it sounds, I laugh while reading this now.

Dear Thana

Dear Thana,
I can’t believe your gone.  How did this happen? I thought you were better than that. I wish you would have come to talk to me, actually, if you talked to anyone, that would have been fine.  I just wish you told SOMEONE! ANYONE! then, I wouldn’t have to write this stupid letter to you.  
My parents signed took me to a therapist right after you died.  They say I’m ‘unstable’ ugh! You know how they are Thana.  It’s crazy just to think that your dead. D-E-A-D! I can’t even wrap my head around it.
I’m scared Thana, scared.  And you know me Thana, I’m NEVER scared. but I’m scared now. I just can’t even believe you’re gone.  It’s scary even to think that I’ll never, EVER see you again.  And now I have to write these stupid letters to you, while the therapist is looking over my shoulder, reading them. Making sure I’m ‘coping’.  
The therapist says I have to take these letters down to the graveyard every time I write one.   “Leave them on her grave with a single rose,” she states, “It should help you cope with her death.”
“Do you even know her name?!” I nearly shriek, “HER NAME IS THANA ELIZABETH JAMES, AND SHE IS DEAD, AND YOU DON’T EVEN FREAKING CARE! YOU JUST WANT YOUR PAY CHECK FROM MY FREAKING PARENTS, DON’T YOU?!  WELL?!?!”  The therapist backs away slowly,
“Now, Quinn, I-”
“DON’T ‘Now Quinn’ ME!!!! THAT WON’T BRING MY FRIEND BACK! NOTHING WILL! NOT YOU! NOT MY PARENTS!  NOT EVEN GOD, IF HE’S EVEN UP THERE!  IF HE REALLY CARED, HE WOULDN’T HAVE LET THANA DIE, NOW WOULD HE?!?!”  
I’m on a roll now, “WELL GUESS WHAT LADY? MY BEST FRIEND IS DEAD, AND THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO TO BRING HER BACK! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW THAT FEELS?!?!  I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT FEELS LIKE!” and I do something that I’ve never done before, I slapped the poor therapist, right then and there.  She staggered back, shocked, her palm on her cheek.
“You can leave now, you are no longer my patient.” the therapist tries to states calmly, but she’s failing.
“Fine.” I storm out of the room.  My mom is sitting there in the waiting room, reading her magazine.
“You ready to go-” she starts, but I just fly right by her. “I guess so...” and she sprints after me.  
We drive home, and my mom tries to start conversation, but I just blow her off and stare out the window.  When we got home, mom calls the therapist, and she learns the whole story. And now I have to write a stupid apology letter to the therapist, even though I am not nearly close to sorry for my actions.

February 12th
Dear Thana,
It’s been a couple of days since that happened, but I’m still writing these letters to you. I feel really dumb, but i feel compelled to write these to you.  It’s crazy, but I guess I’m just a little crazy. =) I just can’t get you out of my head. I can’t even stand it.  
What if you died because of the fight we had last week? We still hadn’t made up from that. It was something stupid we were fighting over too!  WE were trying to decide who’s house we would sleep at, yours or mine.  I said yours because you have a rec room that is awesome, but you wanted my house because I have a bigger room, my own bathroom, and a T.V. in my room.  We never did have that sleepover, because you died too soon to have it.
I went back to school yesterday.  Everyone kept asking me about you, and why you did this.  I just told them to leave me alone, I must have nearly cried 20 different times during the day.
Thankfully, I convinced mom to let me stay home today.  
It’s too soon to go back in public.  My heart breaks when I go to school, and I don’t see you there every day.   Although, tonight is your visitation, so I feel like I need to go, support your family, they’re practically MY family.  Comfort Isabelle as she cries, hug your parents, smile at the twins.  
I can barely think anymore. It’s just like I want to die too.  See you again in heaven, but I’m not sure if I can bare it. It’s a scary thought, but I might just go through with it.

Dear Thana,
Remember when we were like seven, when Isabella was born, how jealous you were, and how jealous I was of you?  I mean, you had 3 siblings, and I had absolutely none, and never would have any more.  I miss the days when we were more like sisters than friends, I walked over to your house, and you walked to mine.  I miss living on the same street, just 3 houses down. Now you live across town, but we still see each other every other day, and sleep over every Friday, but it just wasn’t the same as it was before.
Or the time you became a ‘woman’ and we were flipping out, because we were home alone, and we didn’t have any idea what to do.  I was jealous of you then too, because your mom took you out for ice cream.  
Now that I think about it,  I was jealous of you a lot of times in our lives.  I mean, we’ve been friends since we were like 2 months old, but I think I have been jealous of you half of the things that happened to us.  It’s really sad, but I feel like my jealousy was taking over our friendship.  What it that’s the reason you died?

Dear Thana,
Today was your funeral, Thana. It was mind boggling how many people came.  I think I even saw Miss. Smith, remember her? She was our Pre-K teacher, good times, but I guess we won’t have any of those anymore.  
Your parents asked me speak at you funeral.  I accepted, but as soon as I stood on that altar, I burst into tears, and had to be lead back to my seat in the pew.  
I don’t know how I can go on anymore.  I think I’m going to go through with it tonight.  I’m done with life, I just want out, I can’t stand it anymore.  But I don’t have the guts to shoot myself like you did.  I don’t know how, but I’m going to do it. tonight.

Dear Thana,
Well, as you can see, I didn’t kill myself, unfortunately.  I got caught.  Well not really caught, but just really found.  I tried overdosing on sleeping pills, but i passed out, and woke up in the hospital.  Apparently, my dad came downstairs to go to work, and saw me passed out on the floor and took me to the hospital.
So now I’m here.  Stuck in the hospital, in critical condition.  After I get better, I’m going to the psychiatry ward, or as now known as, the nut house.   I hate my life.  I should have just jumped off a bridge.
-Quinn

February 17th
Dear Thana,
I am now stuck in some doctors office in therapy.  I don’t know why, but the therapist is making me keep writing these letters.  Yeah, like they worked so well the last time.  I don’t really know what to take of my surroundings.  I guess I’m just in shock.I’m scared.  I think I’ll just pretend to get better, so they’ll let me out of this place.  The only person I can really talk to is you, Thana.  I don’t think I’ll be here for a while, but I guess you might as well have a semi-good description of this nut house.  The windows are barred, the walls are white cinder block, and the floors are cold, hard tile. I may be exaggerating, but it really does suck here.
I have a roommate too, her name is Yaz’mine, like your puppy, but she’s like really angry all the time.   She has to go to this place the doctors call the ‘Quiet Room’ almost every day.  She’s here because she like, threatened to kill her little brother or something. I mean, I’m stuck here with A PSYCHO! WHAT IF SHE TRIES TO KILL ME NEXT!!!!!!!!
I don’t really even understand why I’m here. I mean, sure, I wanted to kill myself, I still do. but they put me in a nut house, with a psychopath, I mean, are they TRYING to kill me?  
-Quinn

February 22th
Dear Thana,
The doctors say that if I keep acting the way I’m acting, I can get out in early March.  What they don’t know, is I’m sneaking up plastic knifes and cutting in the bathroom at night.  It’s agonizing pain, but when I cut, I get some sort of high from it.  I just feel better.  
I can’t believe the doctors haven’t noticed the cuts on my wrist, I mean, it’s pretty noticeable.  It just goes to show, no one cares about me. I’m like a bird, trapped in a cage, unable to sing.  Life has just been strangling me. I can’t wait to get home, so I can die.
I’m done.  I mean, my psychopathic roommate got out of here before me! A suicidal girl who’s best friend died! How is that even possible.  They’re rumors going around that she got sent to Juvie. better there than here. ;)
-Quinn

February 28th
Dear Thana,
I guess I’ll be out of here soon.  This place is so stuffy.  I can’t wait to go home.  I can’t stand the people here, they’re all nuts!  I guess I’m nuts too.  
I don’t really understand the whole thing.  They say I’m fully recovered from my depression.  They say they won’t put this on my record or anything, and my life can continue as normal.  Ha! The doctors and nurses even fell for my act!  I’m STILL cutting. I’m STILL depressed. And, I STILL wanna die!
These people know nothing about psychiatry!  They know nothing about me! They don’t care about me, they just want the check! Just like that therapist!  
ARGHHHHH! I want to scream, but if I do, they might delay my departure from this frickin place!  I need to cool down.  Deep breaths Quinn, breath in, and out. In and out.  
-Quinn

Dear Thana,
Well, the doctors discovered I was cutting, and they delayed my departure for another month. . }=( I guess pretending to get better doesn’t work, I guess I have to TRY! =(   I will do my best to get better Thana. For you. For your family. It’s crazy, I came here, pretending to get better for myself, but I realized how selfish that was.  Your family needs me. Who cares about my parents, yours are so much more important to me.  I promise you that I will get better for your family.
-Quinn

March 15th
Dear Thana,
I got a new roommate in this place.  Her name is Penelope, and she is suicidal, like me.  It’s good to have someone with the same view on life, well, ex view to be exact.  The doctors think that since I’m almost recovered, I can help her recover too.
*****
April 14th
Dear Thana,
I am finally leaving this place.  I can’t wait to see your family again .=) I think I’ve changed through this whole experience. I learned how to be myself, and not die.  
Unfortunately, my parents are picking me up.  But I’m going to make them take me to your house right when we leave. I will force them, with all my power. I can’t wait to see your parents. =)

Please Call Hockenberry Family Care to donate to her memorial fund












I think the fact that I killed Quinn in the end was the worst part. It's usually the part I laugh about now. But my teacher asked me if I was having problems after I wrote it, due to the raw emotion of it. I didn't even UNDERSTAND what suicide was back then. I laugh about that now too. But yeah. I'm actually thinking about editing and extending this story... any thoughts?

*~Brigid~*

P.S. I decided that I'm stealing Alexis's idea, so here's a funny video and picture to lighten the mood of this post.

WHY! JUST WHY?!?!


German is getting stupid.... Just so you know.... I face palmed at this.
Anyway... So as a lovely freshman, we have a Romeo and Juliet unit to end the year. And let me tell you.
IT SUCKS
It really does. It's really boring, and I don't understand 99.99999% of it.  The worst part is the movie.  We just watched it.  Here are the lovely images of it.  It's the 1968 version.
WORST SCENE EVER!!!!
She shoves this down her throat. Not kidding. It was kinda funny.
SHE KISSES HIS CORSPE!!!!! WHY?!!?!
The Sword Fighting Was TERRIBLE!!!

In conclusion.... Terrible Movie. Just Terrible. We have to watch Romeo+Juliet, which is NOT the same movie. It was made in the 90's. It's probably gonna suck... but it has Leonardo DiCaprio in it so I'll live. 
But you all know the story of Romeo & Juliet. WELL Apparently, there is a sex scene. You don't see much, you know, except  Romeo's naked butt for 5 minutes while he gazes out a window and then Juliet rolls over.... you can figure out the rest...  MOST INAPPROPRIATE MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN!!!! Of course, there was just one inappropriate scene for like 10 minutes, but I don't watch movies with inappropriate stuff, unless Space Balls count... but it's officially PG, so whatever...
^If that's inappropriate, sorry.... the movie swears a lot...

So yeah... Have a fun life :)

Bored in German...... Again ;)

Guten tag meine freunde! Wie gehts? Ich bin gut danke! 
Alrighty, If you don't know what I said, TRANSLATE IT!  So anyway.... Welcome to Friday... (My history teacher literally says that everyday!)  
So in case you care about the choir results, :/ Womens Choir.... BY ONE FRICKING POINT!!! Like no joke, If i scored a point higher I'd be in! And I'm going to Blue Lake for a month this summer, so I my point value would be like 50 or something! ARGH! I'm done.
HAHA! this is my cabin last year! AND I HAVE PERMISSION! You see, one of my cabin mates dad runs this blog: String Girl Sees The World and we gave him permission to post this photo on his blog, so here's the post.
So I'm going to Blue Lake again! This time for A WHOLE MONTH! 
I'm going to TWO SESSIONS! And staying the time inbetween sessions, so basically, I'll have the entire camp to myself for two days! But I'm doing choir again :) Hence my frustration, as stated earlier. But I'm so excited! A lot of my cabinmates are going to the sessions I'm going to! It's gonna ROCK!!!

And Then We All Rode Unicorns Into The Sunset.

Woher ist du? MICHIGAN

 
Good Evening.... I'm teen heart throb Brigid. It's an honor to be posting on this blog today..... gotta love Neil Patrick Harris xD
...
...
...
...
...
...
No Joke 
 
...
...
...
...
...
...
...
See?! Okay... ONE MORE I SWEAR!
OK.... Onto other junk :)  First off, don't ask about the title.... I have no idea.... Screw physics, I'm Brigid xD 
So, It's very hot here in Michigan. Not like 60 degrees hot, no, like 84 degrees. I did my homework outside... Well started my homework.... O.o I mostly just watched dandelion puffs in the wind. I'm not a productive person... Oh well. ANYWAY, so I had a bunch to tell you, and I forgot what it was... OH! let me do that! OK... You'll see what I meant in a bit ;) So onto other stuff! :P
This is all the choirs (me in 7th grade) doing a song a while back. It was everybody so it sounds horrid because we never sound good as a whole.

Choir Update: So choir auditions are today and tomorrow.  My friend and I auditioned today. and we bombed it :( NOT KIDDING! Gosh! Sight reading is what really got us.  So if you don't know what sight reading is, It's basically they hand you a sheet of music and say clap the rhythm, then sing it. Example on the left.  That's way easier than what we usually have.  But it was so difficult! Ugh! It was the hardest sight reading I've ever done, that's for sure! Maybe I'm not cut out for Jazz Choir... (Jazz choir's the highest choir at my school and no, they don't sing jazz music[video on the left is Jazz choir, Symphonic band and Concert band in a showcase concert last week... I couldn't go unfortunately.
That's just Jazz Choir, singing their festival pieces. 

On the subject of Choir and singing.  I have a long overdue request. So almost exactly a year ago, when I first started this blog, I was talking about singing and choir and such.  And I believe Sonja asked me if I would sing, and I was like 'IDK maybe...?' or something along the lines of that, and I never did it.  SO, I was thinking about it, and I decided I will do it! Now.  That's what I thought of earlier and never did.  So this is my audition piece.  I'm on both parts :P Alto and Soprano.  I can sing All four actually, depending on the key and such xD 
video
Didn't think I would do it hunh? Yep, I always pull through :) 
If it uploads...........................
YESSSSSS!!!!!! HAHA!!!!!!

Willy Wonka went outstandingly! We sold out 3 out of 4 times! Nothing went horribly wrong! SUCCESS!
 Alright, I have to go do Brigidy thingies.  So.... Here's a picture of something.
*~Brigid~*
P.S. the reason why I said something and not A pokemon thingy or Shining Armor and Cadence is because I didn't know what I was gonna post at the time. I kinda just look through my pony folder and my random photos folder, and go from there.

Random Videos That I Enjoy

SO... Youtube on my German computer is not working right now -___-  So I can't watch any videos, but they work on the blog... SO enjoy some of my favorite videos :)

Well, these two are from Phantom of the Opera, which I have never seen, but the music is epic :) I can sing the high part in the second one, the final note is I think 2 above middle C? that's REALLY high.
I <3 RENT's songs! I can't see it cause it's rated R :(
Just love this song, plain and simple
This song always reminds me of a girl who bullied me since 6th grade.
I have this episode memorized, I can say it while watching it... It's really kinda sad ;)
