I don't really know why I'm posting a journal entry, since I've neglected dA long enough that I highly doubt anyone is actually "watching" me anymore... I have some legitimate excuses though!
For example, I was busy surviving my Junior year of high school. ANYONE who has graduated high school, knows that junior year is the worst year academically. So there's that. That's the big one. Part of that crazy year was spent in marching band, which left me with literally NO free time, not that I mind, I'd rather be in the band room or with band friends anyway
It was a really awesome marching season though. The show was kind of eh and almost half the band (90 out of 190) was rookies because this past year was the first year that freshman started going to my high school, but we survived and actually managed quite well. We performed in the first annual Pearl Harbor Day Parade for the 7oth anniversary, which was an awesome experience. The parade itself sucked (parades are the bane of my existence), but traveling with your friends is pretty much the coolest thing ever. It was the best week of my life thus far
We also performed in the Fiesta Bowl Band Championship and got first in Preliminaries (which is the first time that's happened since California bands were allowed into the competition the second year it existed) and took second place in the Finals. All I can remember are Prelims though because I actually started to tear up at how freaking awesome we sounded during the trumpet feature in Part 3, haha.
Ok, enough about marching band! Well, my junior year of marching band at least, because I know that most of my friends on here aren't in it and don't really get why I'm so obsessed
My other excuse for not getting on more this summer (As it's almost over now and I only just started using dA again) other than being on vacation, is that I got in a nasty car accident. I got rear-ended BIG time; they totaled my car
Yeah, that was fantastic. But I've since gotten a new vehicle, and I didn't die, which I thank God for, so at least there's that, haha. If you read this far and want to see it, I can add a photo of it for a little while just so you can see it.
No more excuses! My senior year of high school starts on Wednesday and I am sooo ready to be done with high school!! Not our marching band though, I'm going to miss that a lot
OH. I'M THE TRUMPET SECTION LEADER
Which is a way crazier job than you'd first guess because our band is so big and I have the biggest section of all. 25. There are 25
trumpets in our marching band. It's insane, but I feel like a mother hen and as crazy as my kids are, I still love them
Wish me luck with them because I'm going to need it
Oh, and my senior year, hopefully I'll survive that as well. And hopefully I can do it all without completely disappearing from dA for a year straight again! I probably won't post many, if any, deviations; but, with some luck, maybe I can at least post journals and comments and such
