WOW, who knew that band concerts could be so nerve racking. Once you get through one you want to do it again to get things right and to do the things you already do right. I believe that this band concert was very successful. I was not playing do to an injury that is now getting better. I will be reflecting on my last rehearsal I think I did very well at my last rehearsal was very successful.
I thought this experience with choir was going to be somewhat better than my experience in seventh grade, because I had matured quite a lot since the last time I had given choir a chance. Therefore, I thought I would mentally approach the choir concert in a more positive way than I would have in the past. Additionally, I was hoping I would be able to keep my focus for the entire duration of the concert. So, I did not seem disrespectful. Unfortunately, my experience did live up to my expectations.
It’s one of the most important life lessons to learn, and you must know when someone deserves another chance. Everyone messes up in front of friends, teachers, parents, etc. All these people usually get a second chance, and if they don’t use it wisely, they probably at least tried to, possibly earning another chance. Alex wrote in his note to the judge that he almost didn’t invite her because she didn’t attend the first concert, but he wanted to give her a second chance. This has not been my favorite chapter of “Notes from the Midnight Driver”, but is perhaps the most meaningful up to this point.
A Million Thanks To You… Some of my best friends are family, some I’ve known since I was a kid, and others are newer friendships that continue to grow stronger by the day. Although they are all very different, everyone of them are extraordinary. I wouldn’t be who I am today without these people in my life. But before thanking them one by one, I want to thank God, first! I would like to express my gratitude to God for the staggering beautiful events that happen during my vacation.
My Greatest Accomplishment A truly great accomplishment is something that lasts and requires determination and extensive effort. For me, making the Texas Small School All-State Mixed Choir was my biggest accomplishment because it opened me up to new passions, taught me how to work hard, and set me on the path I am on today. In my sophomore year, I joined choir simply to get my fine arts credit out of the way. At the time I did not have any plans for college and was uncertain on what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I honestly hated school and just wanted to get it over with.
And if you don’t work for so long and just play games all month, it will become a serious problem. Have you ever been in class where you didn’t finish your textbook or never could understand a particular lesson but never had the time to understand? I'm pretty sure all this extra time would help, if not make you even smarter. What if your school was being overpopulated? Well you could have a multi-track system where one group works, the takes vacation, then another and
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
The idea of working around patients would have perhaps irked me a few months prior to the summer, maybe a few days prior to the incident even, but over time I actually found that it helped bring back some joy into my life. Now to me, I feel like I may owe it to his memory to work and bring out the best in me that he knew was always there, and so since I have been genuinely trying to bring out the best version of me I can
So they had a really good time, but they didn’t know that they audition in two days and they didn’t study their audition piece on a snare drum. So, that morning they had to get up early in the A.M. and practice their audition piece at 10:00 a.m. So they all met up at Kendall house at 2:00 p.m. to go to Southern to audition. All of them auditioned and they had to wait two days to find out who made it, then all of them was nervous because they didn’t do that good on their audition piece so they was really nervous. Two days later they all was at Corey house and all of them got an unexpected call and they all answered and it was the band director Mr. Hamyer and he said that they all made it to the human jukebox, all of them started to cry because that was their dream an Corey, Kendall, and Carlton finally did it!
I admired their Spirit and determination, but I knew I wouldn’t hear the end of it. They did not exhibit good sportsmanship this year. As we walked out of the gymnasium, none of the Sophomores talked about the 2nd year defeat. It was overwhelming how much of a change we would need to make if we didn’t want to place last for next year’s Spirit
This was my favorite song of the year. I enjoyed this song so much that I took the extra time to memorize it and make it easier for me to watch our formations and make sure we look right in the drill as we played throughout the song. We started out in a box shaped formation and throughout the song, we would change to different shapes and move at different speeds while the
As the season progressed I got better until concert band season. During concert band season almost everyone did not want to continue to play music because of the long-term teachers for the music classes. It slowly got to the point where no one but me in my section was going to the rehearsals. This led me to needing to learn multiple parts and led to odd points during practice where I was the only one playing while panicking trying to cover the parts equally. I repeatedly asked for them to come to the practice but rather than help most did not want to go to these practices.
Kyle Kling 14 October 2014 English 100-24 Professor Hall Academics to Six Flags Commitment and hard work can pay off for you in school in many ways. Those two things for me brought me to Six Flags Great America for a class field trip. In order for the students to go on the field trip they had to earn a 3.0 GPA or better. For me, this was really hard to accomplish because I was only an average student back then. As time went on in school, I realized if you put your mind to something you can accomplish it.
