The Life of Liz.

What do you say to taking chances?
What do you say to jumping o f f the edge?

My name is Liz; most of you know by now. I've been on this site for a little more than a year and it's been, I don't know, extremely acceptable and amazing? Although a lot of you can read my like a book, I would like to introduce to you a new and broader wave of Liz, as a normal human-being. So, the moment you've all been waiting for, here's my story.

Personal Info

Methuen High School Ranger Band. Band is beyond a huge commitment and marching season has just ended. For about two months, the band prepares for the "show of the year" with visual madness and music craziness. Last years show was a Disney theme: Reflections of Earth, etc. This year was Inchon, a Korean theme, with a lovely folk melody contained in the ballad. Marching season is over and we received an overall 3 as a band during finals, which took place in Lowell, MA. A bronze is bad considering we have the most potential as a marching band in the state. November and December are the parade months. This year though we have been invited down to Washington DC to march the parade of the year, the Memorial Day parade. It's in May and I cannot wait to experience that!
My other activities:
New England Conservatory of Music for my professional singing lessons. I also go to the Boston Latin School for my piano lessons. I spend all of my Saturdays for these two things.
I also love to hang with my friends and family any chance I get. School is very busy this year but I know I'll receive a good experience from it.

Music, music and oh yes, music. I love to play piano, write and compose music, and just have a great time. I love to be around people and make them happy. I love to sing and perform in front of massive crowds. When I'm on a stage, I feel as if it's my sanctuary and everything else around is just silenced. It's an amazing feeling knowing you're making people happy with the music you're singing. I hope this can apply to me in the future. My life is a roller coaster with its many hills and slopes so hopefully my future will be the end of the ride with a straight track.

Favorite Music:
I listen to a select few artists every year or week. Haha. Right now, I have a strong liking for Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Il Divo, and Michael Bublé. These artists have potentially changed my life and I'll tell you why. As a lover and compassionate musician, I have always contemplated the genre of music I wanted to perform if I ever got famous and those artists have given me the answer. Any music by them is the music by me.

Favorite Movies:
All comedies. Even the lame, corny ones.
I love romance and a bunch to make me cry.
Yes, I like to cry to movies. Wanna fight?
I love most action movies, the kind that'll leave me sitting on the edge of my seat at a movie theater, or the edge of my couch at home.
I love the thrillers and suspenseful movies, the ones that make me jump and my heartbeat race.
Movies are fun as well as an adventure.

Favorite Quotes:
"Music is love in search of a word." -Sidney Lanier
"Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence."-Robert Fripp
"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music." - Albert Einstein

Now in a chronological aspect, I continue my life with the whole, "What else could people possibly know about Liz." section.

I made my mom scream with pain on December 23rd, 1991. Exactly 7 Lbs., 22 inches. I was tall, so I really don't know what happened. As a little toddler, my parents began to figure out something that could've easily ruined the rest of my life had it not been for about 4 surgeries on my ears. My hearing problem was terrible. I actually remember going the Children's Hospital in Boston for a little checkup by my Dr, Dr. Jones his name was. They put me in this secluded room with speakers and a pair of headphones. There was a two way wall so my parents and doctor were watching me and started to say, "Elizabeth, put the headphones on stamp your foot if you hear any noises we're playing." I nod my head because I really was nervous. Being about 4 years old in this creepy room was nerve wracking to say the least. My doctor had played about 20 different sounds and I only heard 3 total. I failed the hearing test and my doctor went on to tell my parents what I heard then. My mom put a pair of headphones on and heard complete static. That was my hearing. I got really scared when my mom put her hand on the screen and I saw a tear go down her face. I started to scream yelling, "Get me out of here, it's scary!" About a year later, I was scheduled to get my first surgery in which tiny, almost microscopic tubes were placed in my ears so I could strengthen my ability to hear. The anesthesia knocked me right out and before I knew it, I was looking at my parents who smiled back at me. Every couple of years after that, I was scheduled to go back to get my tubes replaced with stronger ones. I was old enough to handle more hi-tech tools. Though it was scary, I grew up not having to go to a speech therapist, and my life was saved, thanks to the doctors and God.

I'm your average girl in high school. I'm nothing special, but that doesn't mean I don't have value because I definitely do. I'm the type of girl who gives countless hugs and kisses, the girl who is interesting and sometimes hard to figure out when you first meet me. The type of girl who enjoys the colder seasons because it reminds her of life and peace and happiness and the essence of family and friends. I'm the type of girl who loves holidays and being in the moment of life, and love. I'm a fun person who you can learn to live with.

In my 16 years of life, I've experienced the countless milestones, heartaches, triumphs, hardships and pretty much every little emotion and event you could think of. My life is mine only, and I have the choice to decide what is right for myself. Everything that has happened to me has and will shape my future and I cannot wait to ride this intricate road.
So there you have it. My life. It may not be as interesting as most others are but in my experience of living life to the fullest, I figured out that I can simply be happy with my own ways and no one else's. To adjourn this blog, I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas (those who celebrate it) and a Happy New Year. Be safe and I love you all very much.
