I know that my blog is visited by many people all over the world, and so I'm not sure if you all celebrate this day like we do here in the States, but even so, I'm wishing you a happy 4th of July !
I have a lot to talk about again, and first off, I really need to thank you guys. You have given me a total of 109 views in less than a month. I am left speechless, there's nothing more I can say. My blog obviously isn't the most popular out there, but it's getting there, and I'm so happy that my dream is getting out there.
Next, I've finished most of the songs that I've previewed for you and I'm going to try to record some of them and get the songs copyrighted so that they can become big hits!
On a more serious note, I have received many inappropriate inboxes from some of you saying that you want me to be your girlfriend and all that jazz. You guys are strangers to me, you know nothing about me, especially the fact that I have a boyfriend. If I get another email from someone like this, you will be reported and blocked, end of story.
I would, again, like to thank my fans for reading my blog as much as they have, I appreciate this so much, I'm so sorry I haven't been posting in a while, it's hard for me now that I have a lot on my plate.
In the world of fame, I'm still recording with my computer, however I just got braces so singing is a bit of a challenge for me right now. In a few days I should be fine, though, so please be patient ! I'm going to continue contacting different recording artists for my dream, and I'm looking for open casting calls. As for my Glee audition, there still is no news, I will keep you posted!
I'm also in the works of creating a different website with everything you need to know, once that's up I will let you know right away !
First off, I have just found out that Skyrock has marked me as a BlogStar, which is a huge honor to me since I will be more exposed in the outside world, and more exposure means I'll be closer and closer to my dream, since my voice is going to be heard all around the world. So, for that, I thank Skyrock and the Skyrock team for believing in my dream and what I do!
Second, I would like to make something clear : my dream is to be famous. I have gotten many inboxes from people asking me what my dream actually was, well there it is. My dream is to one day, be standing on a stage, microphone in hand, performing and doing what I love in front of millions of people who love to watch me live my dream. I want bright lights, photo shoots, interviews, performances ... I want to be known. I even believe that with this blog I have a chance of making it in the big world out there, with the help from you guys, of course.
I've also gotten a lot of inboxes asking me if I have an msn. I do, actually, but that is all I have, and I'm sorry. I don't have an AIM, iChat, or any other form of IM, and I don't intend on getting one ... yet. I may get an AIM soon, though. I do have facebook and twitter also, so you can add me as a friend on facebook and follow me on Twitter to see what I'm up to.

Summer has officially started and I'm feeling the summer vibe already ! Birds are singing, all my friends are waking up late, the sun is shining and my skin is lightly burned. Yay. Well, maybe not to the last part. I wanted to take this time to wish you guys a very happy summer, since I seem to have forgotten to on Monday, I'm so sorry for the delay ! I hope you live each moment of this summer as happy as you can be, and eat a lot of ice cream, its summer for crying out loud, you can afford to put on a few pounds ! I'm an ice cream freak, by the way. My favourite flavour is cookies and cream or cookie dough ... what's yours ?
As for my singing, I have come down with a little teeny bit of a cold, so I'm not too happy with the result I'm getting from my recordings. I have 9 audacity programs running to record my voice, none of them are finished, because I don't think they are worth showing, because it isn't my best work. However, I will keep them on my computer, and if you want me to post one or more of them, leave a comment or send me an inbox as to which one you want to hear. The ones that I have currently started recording are : Fifteen - Taylor Swift When I Look At You - Miley Cyrus Dead End - Mikayla Lewis (Original Song) Hey, Soul Sister - Train California Girls - Katy Perry Please note that all of these songs are covers, except for Dead End which is an original. I have also posted a video on YouTube of me singing Ironic by Alanis Morisette, and it has also been posted on my blog. Check it out ! Another thing I have been doing is contacting a big record label in the States, I will keep you posted on this subject, because I don't know much right now, and I don't know what I can say or not, but hopefully good news will come from this ! I have also auditioned for glee, and will keep you guys posted on that too.
So, back to the singing thing. If you want me to sing another special song, as in a request, I would love to receive an inbox with a request. All request will of course be taken into consideration without a doubt and many of them will be reproduced.
Lastly, I'm going on vacation for around a week and may not have internet connection, which means fewer blog posts for a while :( BUT, don't be shy to still communicate with me via facebook, twitter or inbox, I WILL check everything and reply when I get home. I always reply to emails or any form of communication unless I feel that the email was innapropriate.

Today was my last day of school . I, honestly, thought that the many horrendous days of sitting at a desk, watching a teacher talk and talk about various subjects would never end. This year was filled with a ton of drama, and lots of hard work.
I'm so happy to be able to wake up late now, to be able to spend the days with my friends at the pool or at parties instead of inside a school building.
It feels like this year went by so fast, but when you think about it, a lot of stuff happened this year, so many things that it would take many days, non-stop, to name them all. In fact, I've probably forgotten half of them.
Waste not fresh tears over old griefs ~ Euripides
My philosophy is to live in the moment, because you never know what might happen tomorrow and you might not like what happened yesterday. I feel like you need to live every second as though it were your last, live it up and get the most out of everything.
Song Preview - Right Now You never know what tomorrow's gonna bring And you might not like what yesterday brought So you gotta live, dance and sing Cause whether you're ready or not Life can take a sharp turn Shift gears End up on the crash course That's why I put all my Heart, sweat and tears Into living for Living for Right Now
Well hellooo there ! Today I was visited at my school by an almost unknown band. The fact that they were rocking out on stage as though they were the most amazing band ever when almost no one knew who they were really made me think that they had hope, and love them even more. The crowd seemed to love them even more because of the fun they were having on stage.
I really hope that one day, when my dream comes true, I can get up on stage and have as much fun as they did this afternoon.
Today is father's day, and I really would like to express my love for my daddy.
He's the most amazing father anyone could ask for, and his love is without bounderies. He obviously gets upset sometimes, but thats understandable, no one's perfect. He loves me so much and I return the affection. I love you daddy !
I'm sure that there are many fathers out there who deserve to be loved on this day, so this blog post is for you ! This is a shout-out to all the daddies out there who are as great as mine is !
Without You - Song Preview (For My Dad) What would I do with out you By my side Day and Night Watching over me like A daddy's supposed to be And what would I do without you Holding me when I cry Telling me everything's going to be alright When you're not even sure it's going to be What would I do without you being here With me
