Woo Band Band

In true band kid fashion when told to “just talk” the first thing that I talk about is band. I was in band for seven years. Like I said in a previous post I play flute and piccolo. Those seven years were full of ups and downs and some of the hardest moments of my life.

Now I know that a lot of band kids like to say that they wtarpon-springs-outdoor-performance-ensembleork harder than the football team or that band in general is harder than football and were I don’t know if thats true or not there are definitely some ensembles that work pretty freaking hard. For instance Tarpon Springs Outdoor Performance Ensemble( that’s’ a fancy name for marching band.) I am constantly amazed when I watch them, even as someone who has participated in the event is incredible the show that a group of high schoolers can put on. Check this video of them wining the national completion two years ago. (source)

Now my band was not anywhere close to that good, but we did manage to pull out sixth place in class at the state completion last year. Which is pretty cool because that is the best we had ever done and it was my senior year and I was also the featured soloist and the highest level of student authority in the band. So I feel pretty proud of what we were able to accomplish last year.

Although last year was the best we did placement wise I  think almost anyone who marched in 2013 would agree that was the best and most fun year. My band did “Wonka Pure Re-Imagination” which was a Willy Wonka (Book by: Ronald Dahl, movie adaptations 1971 and 2005)  show essentially. We all had so much fun that year and we did really well only not making finals by .3 of a point. 071fc0742157759a24ff7f8949fcfcd1(source)

Ten Things to Know About Me

Ten Things to Know About Me

 

I was in band for seven years, it was the most excruciating seven years of my life that I would never take back for anything. My senior year I was even able to be the band captain and a featured soloist in the marching band show all at the same time.

I play flute and I love it, it’s a great way for me to burn time and still feel like I am being productive. It’s also super relaxing and really helps to clear my head.

I also play piccolo and when I say “also” I mean I basically play them at the same time because I had to switch back and forth every three seconds when I was in band.

If their was only one food left in the world it would have to pasta because it’s basically the only thing I eat.

To go along with loving pasta, I can’t stand tomatoes or tomato sauce or anything that has tomatoes in it (except pizza, because who doesn’t like pizza.) I basically can’t even touch them they bother me so much.

My favorite thing to do is nothing, I love curling up in bed with my computer and just watching Netflix and not talking to anyone all day long.1280px-netflix_logo-svgNetflix Logo

 

My biggest pet peeve: my bad eyesight. The funny thing is I don’t even have that bad of eyesight, I mean you  don’t want me driving without my glasses but I can see a lot better than some people.

I’m a little bit, almost,mostly, 100% OCD, I can’t think if there is any semblance of a mess in my space, and don’t get me started on my rule and regulations for entering my perfectly clean bed (they’re extensive…)

I love Pokemon and don’t mean Pokemon go I mean the actual video games I have only been playing for a year or so but I am so hooked I can hardly put them down.  Lugia and Manaphy are clearly the best.

My favorite show is not “Star Trek“(Amazon Prime) but that does not keep me from being a huge Trekie I love everything about it, my favorites are the original series(1966-1969)and the new movies(2009,2013,2016).
