Marching Band FTW

I haven't been on for a few weeks to to the exhaustion of band camp. Don't get me wrong, I love marching band! I just have to sleep for like 12 hours afterwards during band camp. Anyway, today was an amazing! In mid morning we had a march off, and the winner's section gets to come in later tomorrow (the last day of band camp). Then, waddaya know? I'm in the last two. With the lead snare. Anyone in marching band knows that the lead snare always has to be an amazing marcher because, well, they're the lead snare. In the directors words, "the lead snare, and the dark horse freshman". So the director was having us go really fast, so fast that we actually both messed up at the same time. So he had us go again, and he tried to trick us by saying "right slide... march" and incase you don't know, you're not supposed to switch directions until the person giving commands says "march". When the command came to stop, I did so and stood there, unsure of who won, or if anyone won yet. So as I was at attention, I see one of the bari sax players running at me. She tackled me with a hug and soon my whole section was dogpiled on me!

None of us believed that I actually beat him, but it was true! I was so exhausted that I practically fell asleep on my boyfriend's shoulder at lunch. So now I feel really good about myself :3

So long,
The Black Parade Marcher
