Came back and saw that I jump started some activity for a bit but then it died again, so here goes one more attempt! :D
Hey everyone, so I'm Kaze'! I feel like I should give you my real name now since I trust you all to be awesome individuals. My real name is Danny :) I am an aspiring musician, performer, and dreamer. I've done some things in my very recent past that I wish I had never gotten into but thankfully I have an above average willpower so I quit doing all the bad things the world offers you. I've finally realized who I truly am as a person and I'm ready to conquer the world! I want to use my gift to inspire others and help them through those tough times through the magic of music. Music always has a way of making you remember certain parts of your life and is one of the best healing tools. Plus, who doesn't love to jam to some tunes am I right? ;D
Anyway, I have an announcement to make. I wonder, does anybody on here follows NBC's The Voice? Well if you do, look out next season! My dad was kind enough to get me plane tickets to audition in Atlanta for Season 4 of The Voice! :D I'm incredibly excited and truly believe I can make it to the blind auditions (I have to audition for the Producers of the show twice before I go to the actual show). Lots of people hear me sing all the time and think I have the chance to make it.
My dad on the other hand...well he's very skeptical. I can't blame him since it is a long shot and since he's never truly heard me sing. He's heard me fool around in the car sometimes and I would harmonize with him whenever we had a Karaoke night at my house, but I would never showcase what I can really do. I'm doing this not for me, but for him and my family. I want to prove to my family, especially my dad, that I have the talent to make it. I've always felt like my dad has never been proud of me for anything, so I want to give him something to be proud of. If I don't make it, it'll only back him up and won't help my case or my career. That's why I HAVE TO MAKE IT. I will not accept leaving that room without that red slip saying I made it to LA for the next round.
I've been practicing everyday for hours. Whether it was singing in my car, walking on campus, while working, or at home. I am determined to make it and won't give up. This is a huge deal and means a lot to me for many reasons. So if I do make it at least to the Blind Auditions on TV, cheer for me! I would greatly appreciate it! ^_^
Other than that, I finished my first semester of college :) It was pretty chill and I had a good time. The major amounts of free time give me plenty of time to study, have a social life, and maintain work and sleep. College is a fun time but also very serious. If this music thing doesn't work out, I'll probably be a business major. It's a great degree to get lots of jobs in that I wouldn't mind doing. They say if you love your job, you won't work a day in your life and that's what I'm trying to strive for. Hopefully The Voice at least jump starts my career. I would love to be successful so I can support myself, my family, and help my mom financially since she's really struggling to pay her expenses. I can't really help her since my job is minimum wage with very little hours so I only have enough to pay for my car insurance, gas, and food. It sucks but I'm getting by with enough to survive on. If I weren't living with my parents, I would be screwed lol thank god they didn't kick me out after I turned 18.
OH YEAH! My 19th birthday is coming up on December 31st! ^_^ I've been so worried about my audition I completely forgot about my birthday! HAHAHAHA! I'm a dumb head. That's what stress does to you I guess :P
Well there's my current life story/situation. I always feel like this is a great place to write my thoughts down because you guys never judge and always have positive responses :) I appreciate that about this forum. Don't worry, if I ever get famous, I'll drop by again to say hi occasionally ;D lol Talk to you all soon!
The Voice is actually one of my favorite shows! :D I'm so excited for you!! I'll definitely be rooting for you. :)
Happy birthday, Danny. :)
Being bold here and using your actual name...
Merry Christmas, anyone who sees this and celebrates Christmas! :) I got a bike for Christmas (thank god, it's gonna get me places till I get my permit in August), and tried to ride to the park, but hit a curb and scraped my knee. Cried like a five year old on the side of the road until I was able to calm down and ride back. Anyway, merry Christmas!
I would have posted here a long time ago, but I feel like Tumblr has made me too weird for this place.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year to everyone. Kisses xoxo
Also do you guys remember that one chick who posted that thread here that kept cursing at us whenever we told her that her language was inappropriate? I remember it sometimes and I laugh.
I've been on Facebook for too long. Kept trying to find the "like" button on here.
Here's praying the mods don't notice/are in a forgiving mood, given that it's been several years (dear lord it's been actual literal years) since I was active here.
Hi again, if you recognize me. Hi anyway, if you don't.
I remember how this site changed my life, back when I was a freshman (now senior!) in high school. Let's be real: it turned me into a semi-elitist, narcissistic, grammar-obsessed, self-righteous, irritating-as-all-hell person. Maybe it was my true transition into becoming a teenager.
But don't think, for a single second, that I regret coming here.
This place introduced me to the internet. To Nerdfighteria and gifs and internet debate. It taught me how to write more eloquently and type more quickly. And I made friends here, really great people.
I always enjoyed coming here. I enjoyed debating and making fun of fangirls and laughing about stupid things with my friends. Later, after I was banned, I enjoyed making alt accounts and getting angry at the mods and being a troll. Like I said, I wasn't the best person.
I have a Tumblr now. I love it, but it's really not the same. I don't have Tumblr friends. I used to make friends here by being snarky on a post, but that opportunity isn't quite available over there.
Basically, I miss what this site used to be for me, despite the idiocy I recognize as I look back. I wish it wasn't dead, I wish the oldies and the fangirls and everyone else still posted. Ah, well.
Thanks for reading my vaguely incoherent ponderings. I'll be going now. See you 'round.
Hallo, Jacen. How're you?
