Temple Square

For choir we just went up to Temple Square. I have never been able to sing up there because I have never been old enough. Here is the story:
So earlier that day we went to Mt. Nebo Jr. High School to sing and to introduce the choir at the high school. It was an okay performance. We definitely gave Mr. Bills a scare on the first performance and the second performance was quite a bit better. After that gig we went back to school and went to our third and fourth periods. I had a play practice for Little Women till four o'clock. The only problem was that we had to be at the school ready to get on the buses to go up to Temple Square at four. Knowing that earlier I brought everything that I needed to school.
Four came around and we had a couple minutes to talk with Mr. Bills. One problem though, something had happened with the bus scheduling. It had been taken off of the list. We don't know how but it did. We had to REschedule buses and find two bus drivers to drive us up to Salt Lake. We were supposed to be on the buses on our way to Salt Lake at 4:15 pm but we didn't get on them until 4:45 pm.
We had to be under the Assembly Hall at 5:45 pm. There was obviously no way that we could be there to practice before we got on. We would just have to get there and get on and perform our 40 min. show. We would have made it on time if it hadn't been for terrible terrible traffic. There had been an accident on I-15 south bound and north bound. It took us forever to get to the Assembly Hall. We ran off of the buses and into the hall immediately. Instead of doing our full 40 min. show we could only do a 15 min. show.
Our songs included Sing We Now Of Christmas, Lux (I don't know the whole tittle), and The First Noel. We did amazing!!! The best by far that we had ever sang any song ever! Colton Simons, Sarah Clark, and Ginelle Jack all play the piano amazing! Colton plays the organ also. On The First Noel, Sarah and Ginelle played a duet on a Steinway piano! Most beautiful piano I have ever seen in my life. The two of them played piano while Colton played the organ. He comes in later on in the song. When we got to the part where he comes in you could just feel the room rumble. It was the most beautiful experience in my life. Many kids in the choir along with me were on the verge of tears. It was so spiritual.
After Concert Choir performed Singers went and got changed to perform in the south visitors center. It was a very good performance. I was looking out at the Temple during Away In The Manger. It was just beautiful!
The bus ride home was so much fun. I was laughing my head off the whole time. I am so happy that I am going back up there on the 15th but this time all day long. I loved this experience and I am so very grateful for it.

Time to say something

Wow... its been a long time. Well there isn't really much to say because my life isn't very happy right now. I swear, do I ever go more than three months with out getting hurt of some sort? I just recently broke my toe. No joke either.

I just am living my life day by day and it's not very exciting. The only really exciting thing I have to say is that I am in currently in the play Little Women. I play Amy, the brat... yeah don't go there. We started blocking the other day and I have all my music memorized. I love it and the cool thing about this is that it is during school. It's for one of my classes that I am in. There is the occasional after school rehursal and what not but that's okay.

My 17th birthday is on Monday and I don't really know what I want. I guess I just want a perfectly healthy body. I don't want to get hurt anymore. I want my life to be my religion, and dance pretty much. I made a decision that no matter what the circumstance is, I am going to dance my whole life. I don't care if I get cancer and they say that I will die I keep dancing, that still wouldn't stop me.

So this post is really random. Here is a picture of my recent hair cut. I like it a lot. It's only been a week and it has already grown.

I just want to say how freaking bored I have been lately... oh and if anyone has a great and cheap couples (it has to be matching) halloween costume idea or one i could have for me and my date to use... TELL ME ASAP!!! The dance is saturday and I don't know what to be!!!

Oct 7, 2008


Have I said lately how much I absolutely love to dance? Honestly I am so sick of my stupid shoe (I haven't had the big clunky boot since the 29th of Sept.)! I can't wait to get it off so I can start full out doing Ballet, and Jazz, and Tap... especially Tap! My left tap shoe is in need of some serious TLC (Tender Loving Care... just incase you didn't get that... haha)!!!
Honestly I am so frustrated with the whole broken bone situation that I am currently in! I was in almost the exact same state last year!! Well actually that was a longer healing process but I was dancing, very limited mind you, in two weeks!! ew... stitches, now those things hurt to get taken out, especially when your skin starts to grow OVER them... yeah that sucked.
Oh well, I am able to do quite a bit of dancing in my little mini shoe.
Frustration is now gone. I had to get that out.

A couple of weeks back I got a blue card that invited me to apply to be a member of the National Honors Society. I applied and two weeks after... today... I got another blue card saying the following:
Dear Kaitlin Clark,
Congratulations, you have been accepted to be a member of the SALEM HILLS HIGH SCHOOL NATIONAL HONORS SOCIETY!!!
Isn't that so cool?? I think it rocks. It said stuff about applying to be an officer but I am not going to apply for an officer position this year. I just have so much stuff going on right now in my life that this would just make it harder on me. I will apply to be an officer as a Senior though.
Isn't that amazing news?? I am so excited!!!

Oh my oh my

School is going pretty good. I am getting really good grades right now and am really surprised. Choir is going great except for the fact that I hate singing first soprano. It is way to high to the point where it is starting to hurt my throat. I love my classes. My teachers are so cool and way fun.
Ammon is home and I am so freaking happy that everything is going okay. I feel that he is half of me. He really is my best friend.
I got invited to NHS! I am very happy because I didn't really think about NHS as a possibility.
Good life right now. Everything is going great!

Excited Moments

School starts in just a couple of days and I am so disgustingly excited!! I am performing in an assembly the first day of school.
I have an interview at my old next door neighbors resturaunt 3 strikes cafe. I am working the fair for her on the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth at seven bucks an hour!! Yeah, and I am working quite a few hours each day!! I am so freacking excited!

I swear that I am the most accident prone person in the whole entire world!!! Either I jammed my foot or I broke two toes. I am not sure. I can walk but it is kind of hard to do so.
Here is what happened:
I am thinking to myself the other day, hmmm.... well school is starting soon, about three weeks actually, and so is dance. I need to start some choreography so I can have amazing dances to show Nesha and then they can be taught and then performed. Sounds good...
I start to find a song and I think I know what song I will be doing (but it is so not 100% official). I find the song and I start to dance and then I hear a really good part in the music for a tilt leap. I rewound the song to a spot just before it. I think to myself again, coming from that turn I put right before it, the tilt leap would have to be right. **MIND YOU!!! I NEVER TO THEM ON THE RIGHT!!! I HURT MYSELF OCCASIONALLY WHEN DOING THEM! Example... I didn't land right once and hit my knee on the ground, this was in dance of course when I was still just learning them, but still! Example over... ** I go for the tilt leap and I land it, on my foot. My ankle seemed kind of unstable though and my left foot started to roll. AAAHHHH!! I caught the detail and snapped my foot back only to hear a pop or snap of some sort. I wasn't sure if the sound came from my knee, hip or foot because they frequently do that sort of thing... all three of them. Next thing I know I am in a ton of pain and fall to the ground. I crawl over to the couch and take off my sock. I know what I need to do because I have hurt myself countless times before (I am accident prone remember :) ). I moved my butt over and up the stairs then hopped on one foot to the medicine cabinet so I could take some Ibuprofen. I have gotten quite good at hopping on one foot due to countless sprained and twisted ankles... mainly on my left now that I think of it...
WHY? I honestly don't get it!! Why is it that right before dance and school starts I ALWAYS have to get injured! I just don't get it.
Now you tell me, accident prone or what?

I can not believe that it is already time to register for school again. Its weird to think that I will be a high school graduate at this time in two years! It may seem like it is a long time away but to me it isn't.
We went to go and see Ammon today at PCMC (Primary Children's Medical Center). He is in the ICU but he was getting better, but he has a feaver right now. I am worried for him and Jill and I miss him around the house.
I am going to be getting together with some of my friends in the next two days and we are going to be planning a date for friday or saturday.

Please help me out!

No favorite unless it's me!

This is just a little thing I had to say!
You are not the favorite daughter! I am! So stop trying to get him to say that you are... Yeah I saw the card...
Just kidding, I love you to bits. I just like giving you a hard time.

Bitter Sweet

Last night was the last performance of the year. Every single one of us even some alumni were crying. Mr. Lunt is going to be leaving Spanish Fork and going to ALA (American Leadership Academy). This next year is going to be a bitter sweet year. I am excited to be in a brand new school with all of my ward friends and to meet new ones too but I just don't want to leave all of the friends that I have made this year. We are only a couple of miles away but because we are all at different schools it seems like we are will be worlds away. I am set on hanging out with all of my friends this summber.

Choir Tour

Branson was such a success!

Premier and two other all girls choirs were put into the mixed choirs category. All together there were thirteen show choirs. Preliminaries were really good for both Spanish Fork choirs. Amassadors went into Semi-Finals in third place and Premier went into Semi-Finals in seventh out of eighth place. During Preliminaries Premier went very first and so we had to do mic check we were also very nervous going into it. Semi-Finals camethe next day and Premier was third to go. We did so much better. I felt more confindent on my solo. It was amazing how well we did. They announced the three finalists around two thirty or so. LIGHT (they are really good friends with us) got in the finals and went first. A group from Plainfield, Indiana got in it too and they went second with Ambassadors going third and last. I help a boy in Ambassadors make his costume changes in time so I was back stage helping them and we all had a shareamony meeting in a way... we can't call them testimonies... and also we were just all talking about this whole last year. When Ambassadors went all of the Premier girls backstage that helped them were screaming their heads off. All of Ambassadors and Premier's hard work over this past year payied off aparently because we did amazing. Premier was the only all girls show choir to make it in Semi-Finals and in one show we went from seventh place to fourth! The choir Jenks got fifth place points wise but the judges liked their presentation more so prefence wise they got fourth place third runners up. Premier got Fourth runners up fifth place. Premier is officialy the best all girls choir in the nation. LIGHT got second runners up third place, Plainfield got first runners up second place, and Ambassadors won Grand Champoins! It was a great expirence.

Here are a couple of pictures I took of the Awards Ceremony.

As if I wasn't nervous enough...

We recently had choir tryouts for Salem Hills High School. The two more advanced choirs are called Concert Choir and Singers. Concert Choir is the big choir with boys and girls. I made it as a first soprano. I also got a call back for Singers. That choir is only twelve boys and twelve girls. I got a call back for first soprano also.

Tour is coming up. We leave on the ninth of April (only fourteen days!!!). I got registered for an award that is only given to girls, it is called 'Best Female Vocalist'. I am already nervous and that doesn't really help but I really just don't think that I will get it since I am only sixteen and a Sophomore.

Stessed out to the max!!!

Its been a long time since I last posted. I think that it's time to do another one don't ya think?

I haven't been to dance at all this last week! I called Larissa Salcido to get a ride to dance on Tuesday. I was in the commons for ever waiting for her. She had forgotten me. She told me that she was sorry. I am kind of mad that she didn't call me and tell me about it but its fine. Mom and Dad went to the temple on Wednesday so I missed Tap, for the millionth time! Nesha is was ticked at me! It's not my fault that I haven't been able to get there. I am sixteen and all but I still have to take range and road. I need to get a car too to top it all off. Thursday I couldn't get a ride either. Today I had a practice for the fireside program. It is a really cool contemporary piece.

I went on a date on the 19th. We went to Colton Simons house and we all made pizza. It was really good. We also started watching Stardust but we didn't get to finish it. I only saw up to when he puts her on the chain and around the tree. That's all that I have seen. I want so see the rest of it.

The Hollywood Blast is going to be on in February. It starts on the 20th and goes on for a couple of days. The songs are so different but its going to be so much fun. I am singing my solo Listen for the show. I got asked to be in the song,"I want to send my lifetime loving you" from Zoro. I am dancing with a boy named Austin Andrus. The girl who asked me to do it is also dancing in it too. Her name is Elise Williams, and she is dancing with Gabe Lee.

My grades were pretty good this last term. 1st term was good too. I had all A's but one B+. 2nd term was pretty much the same but even better! I had all A's but with one A-. I was very sad about that because I worked so hard to get those grades.

Well that pretty much is all of the news lately. More is going to happen though. We have the Seasons Of Service benifit concert on Thursday and I'm excited. I'll tell all about it after it happens.
