As a band we practice four times a week, for two and a half hours. We even practice on Saturday’s to practice more before a competition. At our practices we do warm-ups like any other sport.

I'm happier than I even was. I've beat the odds of me being able to come home. They're lucky they're not animals otherwise, I would've treated them like that bull. Sadly the bull's tail is in the suitcase, hopefully, they understand the symbolism. My victory over this cruel system.
