April 11

I am feeling surprisingly at peace for having been at malls the whole day. Jenny Lewis is coming to Boston! I'm so excited. I think I've finally outgrown the urge to binge-shop. This picture is of the first flower that grew in my yard this year. It is a survivor because it had to push through a couple of inches of thick dead leaves. It's a daffodil. It's been rainy for probably about ten of the eleven days of April so far. Tomorrow is Easter but I don't celebrate Easter so I will probably work on school projects. Also I hope to practice my flute for a really long time. I'm working on three pieces right now, which is a record number of pieces to be working on at one time. One is called "Syrinx" which is my favorite. It is really beautiful and haunting. It is about a nymph named Syrinx, who turned into reeds when she tried to escape from Pan. But then Pan picked her and made her into a pan-pipe. Oh I changed the layout of my blog for the first time. I don't really like it, but I don't really like any of the blog layouts. I like how it's different though. Tonight I was driving around in Northborough with Lanny and Michela and we passed this huge white mansion with pretty strings of lights. There was a long driveway leading up to it and the driveway was lined with white grecian statues. It was pretty surreal and it made us all happy so we drove back to see it again, and then again. I want to live there. It is called White Cliffs. If I ever end up living in a mansion I'm going to give it a name. Actually I'm going to name any house I live in. I'm going to Florida in four days.
