I feel sort of silly, getting this emotional over marching band even though we’re not quite done yet.
But we almost are. Saturday is Championships, and our last show if we don’t make Finals on Sunday. I’m nervous and excited at the same time.
Marching band really means a lot to me, and since today we had our last rehearsal, I am incredibly emotional. I looked through old band videos, old show music, and leadership camp papers. And you know what? I’m feeling incredibly proud for being in this band program.
In our program we refer to ourselves as a “family.” And wow, is that true. I feel like this is my second home. I got to create bonds I never would’ve created without marching band. I got to strengthen my friendship with my friends through marching band. I found a love and passion for music that actually started with marching band.
We’re a team, a well oiled-machine(our show is Machine this year, haha). My family(except for my mom, she’s cool) isn’t very supportive of my decision to become a music major. My band family, however, has been nothing but supportive. As member of this band, I feel like I can truly achieve my full potential. So many upperclassmen over the years have been role-models, and I learnt so much from them. I hope there are underclassmen who learnt at least one thing from me.
I love music with all my heart, and I love the Santa Teresa Marching Band. I’m a Senior, this is my last show, and even though this is ending, I’m going to perform with every fiber of my being so I have no regrets.
I’m sad this is coming to an end. It’s been an amazing four years with so many amazing people, and we’ve accomplished spectacular feats.
Freshman year we started winning in our division of 3A.
Sophomore year we won a bit more.
Junior year we were practically at the top of our division, and we raised enough money for new uniforms. We finally achieved a score of 80 points.
Senior year, this year, we entered the next division, 4A, and exceeded expectations. New uniforms, killer show, and if we make Finals we’ll be making Finals for the first time in our band’s history.
I value this program so much. I’ve practically dedicated my high school life to band, and I am perfectly content knowing that.
Being part of this marching band has been one of the best influences and experiences in my life.
I can’t wait to see what happens on Sunday.
If you’re lesbian and you fall for a guy
If you’re gay and you fall for a woman
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for girls
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for guys
If you’re pansexual and have a preference
What’s not fine is telling someone they can’t love another person because it doesn’t fit into the confinements of a label.
