thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

Have been catching up (sorta) w/ the PW band via friends of friends who are still in, and apparently, it's starting to suck pretty hard. Getting third to last is one thing; getting third to last because your bandos' attitudes suck makes me wish with all my being that I was still BME - even years later, even after being SO glad I got out of it when I did. That band is one of the organizations I have ever cared the most about, and I can't do anything to help it, and it just about makes me cry with frustration.

...Short of going in some 7th hour and telling everyone just what it used to be like...

Hmm... ::scratches behind ear::


Long time no talkie! I'm glad you're glad I'm not dead!

Yeah, I am in college (weird, eh?). I attend SMSU and intend on majoring in Music Ed. I'm still doing band (I just couldn't quit!!), playing bari sax in the Pride of SMSU! I joined CMENC, so I might get to go to the All-State Convention at Tan-Tar-A for free! Yaaay free! Everything's been awesome so far!

About the PW band, yeah, I can't even think about it anymore without wincing. It just hurts to hear that something you and I both worked so hard to make has gone so far downhill. It's not for lack of talent, either. The kids there right now have loads of untapped talent. They just don't want to/know how to use it.

The whole situation with West right now just reinforces my decision to get a BME. If the only thing that I ever accomplish as a band director is a band full of happy, eager students, then it will have been a successful career. It won't matter if we're good or if we can't even chew gum and walk at the same time...if the kids are eager to learn and happy to do it, then it's all good.

Ok, that's enough out of me!

remind people like me why I get up in the morning. :)

Anyway, hope I see you in Jan. And perhaps we'll even correspond again before then ;)
