Remember that band competition I was talking about last time? Yeah, we rocked at the band competition. That was one of our best performances, if I say so myself. But what did we get? Silver. We got silver. And, this competition was regionals so if we didn’t get into the top 10 bands we wouldn’t be able to go to semi-state. Needless to say, we were only 0.15 points away from being in the top 10. We were so close, yet so far away. There were tears, especially from our seniors. A lot of them thought this would be the year we would make it, as, counting this year, we haven’t made it to semi-state in 3 years. So our marching season is over. Well, we thought it was. The football team coach has said that he would greatly appreciate it if we marched one last time during half-time at this Friday’s game.  That’ll be fun, but for now we’re just working on concert music and getting ready for concert band. We won’t give up so easily on that. We’ve also counted up what points we have so far towards our band letter. We need 120, but I only have 30. Good thing I have like 3 years ahead of me :D.

Today, I am not in a very good mood. Things are not going my way today, and I’m going to vent it all out here, so I’m saying sorry in advance to you guys. Anyway, this morning my alarm decided to make the creepiest noise ever instead of the normal “boop boop” it usually does. I woke up to a very loud staticky noise and my mom telling me to wake up. I got up and started to get ready blah blah blah. So then I miss the bus and have to get driven to school by my mom, and get there in PASSING PERIOD meaning that I had to get my ass to my locker as quickly as possible, then I had to get to my first class of the day. I just barely made it. But that was when I realized that I had left my ear-buds at home, and the only headphones that I had with me were my skull candies and they’re broken, so I couldn’t listen to music while I worked. And that’s pretty much all that’s happened leading up to right now, besides me writing this post.

Now I’m going to tell you about my weekend. Saturday was great, I got to go to my band competition and we got Gold placement. (oh, and if any of you marching bears are reading this, great job!) and afterwards we had potato soup and jumbo cupcakes, which was deliccciiiouuussss. Sunday, I went down to Madisonville for my cousin’s birthday party. Granted I got shot in the head a couple times by air-soft guns, but it was all right. I had fun. UP UNTIL IF FOUND OUT MY AUNT AND COUSIN WERE GOING TO COMIC-CON. Yeah, they invited me. And don’t get me wrong I reaaallllyyyy want to go to comic-con. Especially after last Summer’s Evillecon experience. But the thing is is I have another band competition this Saturday, and my school is the one who is hosting it. So much for Comic-con. I got my hopes up for nothing. Now my cousin’s going to have this great experience at a convention when HE DOESN’T EVEN WATCH ANIME OR ANYTHING AJOBEJIOS; actually I lied, he plays video games and stuff, and he watches the anime based on Halo, so I guess that counts. But I WANNA GO SEE THE WALKING DEAD PEOPLE WHY CAN’T I DON’T I DESERVE IT WAHHHHHH. Ok I think I’m done -_-. Well, not quite, I have one more thing to whine about to you bros. I HAVE TO GET BRACES TOMORROW AND I HAVE TO GET 4 TEETH PULLED SOON WHY THIS DON’T MAKE NO SENSE *WHINE WHINE* *WEEP WEEP* *SOB SOB* and it sucks cause my dad has perfectly straight teeth and didn’t have to get any braces like why couldn’t I have taken after him? Oh well. My braces are going to be pink and purple 😀 I’ll be sure to post a picture.
