And Miles To Go Before I Sleep...

Ask me anything!   Submit   Trey. Mizzou. Gay. Music Major. YOLO.

An Update

I am never on here anymore. I’m just soooo busy D: But here is an update on existence:

-I am dating a wondrous man by the name of Zack

-I made the top ensemble at my university

-I am doing awesome in all of my classes

-I wrote a really wonderful composition

-I am pledging the greatest fraternity on Earth. Hurray, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.

-I miss having time to do anything. Ever.

College

Is way better than high school. I have made a whole bunch of friends, sorta. I think they’re more like pre-friends. Band is great. Just had my oboe audition for ensemble placement tonight and I think it went pretty well, so I really hope that it goes over okay! Today was my first day of classes and it was enjoyable. I have not met any guys, but that’s okay. I don’t really care much, right now.

Also—masturbate before your auditions. It helps.

Or, if you’re cooler than me, sleep with someone.

Hello, Dearest Followers,

How have you been today? Hopefully significantly better than me. Not that today is a bad day (word on the street says it’s International Kissing Day, so if any guy in the St. Louis area wants to kiss me, let me know!) but today is just exhausting physically (my car said it was 116 degrees outside), mentally, and emotionally. Blahhh. Last night was interesting. This guy I’m talking to finally got the courage to talk to me on the phone. We spent 3 hours talking, broken into two half-hour segments (After I watched a few episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog) and he fell asleep. The reason we have yet to meet face-to-face is because he was recently out of a relationship. Like, less than a month ago. So, he doesn’t think he is ready for, well, anything. And I’m dying for a relationship with him. No good, right? Well, when he fell asleep he started mumbling. He kept saying I love you, I hate you, I’m so sorry. I didn’t understand. Well, I got off the phone and he called me back because he had a nightmare that he was fighting with his ex. So, I don’t know. He doesn’t want me to wait for him because I’ll “miss a chance with an amazing guy.” You want to know what Trey does not come into contact with? Amazing men. Fo’ rizzle. Except for this guy. I’m just worried that I’m going to miss my chance with the most amazing guy. So, I am just stuck and I am frustrated and he is so damn great and sweet but I don’t know if I will ever have a chance, especially since I am moving about an hour and a half away in less than a month. Why put yourself through that if you don’t even need to?

Also, I can’t decide if I want to do Marching Mizzou or not. That there is some really frustrating business. I’m just worried that with a job, work-study, and everything else that I won’t be able to handle the additional workload of Marching Band. And I’d have to keep up with two instruments, since the world ends whenever oboes go outside.

My stepmom is losing her mind and I really don’t know why, and that’s terrible because when she isn’t happy, no one is happy. The second she walked through the door, she started rattling off about fifteen million things that were my fault.

I can’t wait to be off Sunday; however, I don’t want to drive down to Farmington to hang out with people. I want some of my friends to actually show they give a rat’s ass and drive up here to see me for a change. There is so much more to do up here, and I’ve made the trip down to Farmington like four or five times. No damn fun. I can’t keep blowing all of that money in gas. Just not working out for me.

Oh, and I bought new shoes on the Fourth of July.

Have a great weekend.

Got any advice?

Audition Materials!

They have been posted for ensemble placement auditions in the fall. You know what sucks? That I will actually have to diligently practice some of it. E Major can suck my dick.

I’m A Happy Camper

Today was literally one of the best days I’ve had in a looooong time. I woke up early, had coffee with a great friend of mine, and I actually had real coffee! Well, a latte! But it was sooooo good! I was in heaven. We talked a ton and it was really great.

Then, I met some friends in STL and went to the Pride Festival for the first time. It was beautiful and everyone was so damn nice. I loved it. I loved it a lot.

Then, I talked to my parents about how fun it was and shit and it was awesome because we haven’t talked about my sexuality in the six months since I came out and I love being able to talk to them about that.

Then, they were HILARIOUS. We were talking about my graduation party, and they told me that there will be a keg and a bar, and my stepmom keeps pushing for male strippers. FUCK. YES.

They also told me about how they plan on having a wedding reception and faking the marriage, so they can reap the benefits. ELL. OH. ELL.

And I have an oboe picked out, and I can’t wait! By buying it through the lady I am, I’m saving about $2000!!

Annnnd, I have met a very lovely guy. He asked me on a date. It’d be cool if it happened. His name is Elijah. I like it. :)

I LOVE YOU ALL.

MY THREE TRIAL OBOES HAVE ARRIVED

And my oh my, am I in heaven! They all play so wonderfully, with such a warm, sweet tone. I think my least favorite is the Laubin—its tone just seems thinner and weaker than the other two. Next in line is the Loree, simply because I am just blown away by the Howarth. Not only is it the prettiest, it has such a dark, soothing tone. It’s perfect. Not to mention that I really like its key system/spacings, and it also just so happens to be the cheapest of the three, wearing a lovely price tag of $3575 :)

A Brief Outline of My Noggin!

Thursday night I am cooking dinner for my stepmom and her mother. What on Earth do I make?! I’ve never done this before!

In other news, my anxiety is flaring up like a balloon this evening. It’s terrible and I feel like I might just implode at any second. Bleh.

Also, I have begun reading Deadeye Dick. It’s pretty interesting. I’m fond.

As of today, I have given up all soda in my life. Water is so tasty. Here in about an hour, I’m going for a run through my hilly neighborhood (I won’t make it far), but it will be a start. And until I get Insanity, I’ll do some nice old-fashioned crunches and push-ups, probably do something like what we always did for our marching band physical warm-ups.

I composed a little bit tonight, just for fun. I wrote a nice little motif down on a post-it note and slung it up on my mirror so that it will be forever ingrained into my mind.

I need to look into getting an oboe -.-

What’s happenin’ in your neck of the woods? :)
