The only thing I cared about was my own personal benefit and the perks that I would receive due to my rank. Throughout the season, I performed as I should’ve in front of the band but after the lights and I put up my baton and uniform, I was a complete wreck but not in the way that most would think. Instead of fulfilling the depressed stereotype by moping and and wallowing in self-pity, I delved deeper into my disorder by developing new vices. I constantly skipped class and devoted my time to people and things that were less than deserving. As a result, my relationship with my family deteriorated and the bond that took me almost four years to form with my closest friends was virtually nonexistent.
The Northeast Missouri All-District Band was one of the most memorable events from my freshmen year. With the number of kids who make either the first band (All-District) or second band (Honorable Mention), several people were unfortunate on making either band. Many people from Troy made both of the bands and I was very lucky to be the only freshmen in the All-District band. The day started out with my usual stressed self; whenever auditions are held, I turn into a super-stressed person. Like many others, I get anxious like newborn bird trying to fly.
According to Smith, “These are people who do nothing all day but sit and indulge on this strange plant.” This a strong example because imagine being lost out on sea, longing to get back home, having experienced some horrific things. To eat something that would make you forget all your pain and misery sounds like the greatest thing. However if they were to succumb to this temptation they would never return home. As Homer states, “‘All hands aboard; / come… or you lose your hope of home.’” (103-105) The temptation of giving up is strong, but in the end if they were to eat the plant, they would never see their families again. Smith states, “Although Odysseus does not fall victim to the temptation of the Lotus Eaters and is successfully able to haul them off and lock them away, it is significant that the food itself is not enough to lure him from his intended course.” This can be supported with when Homer says, “I drove them, all three wailing, to the ships, / tied them down under their rowing benches,” (101-103) Once again Odysseus has to rescue his men, and not give into the temptation of forgetting his pain and
It has also taught me how to be apart of a team and what it means to be responsible for my own part in activities. In marching band if you don’t practice and know your drill and choreography, the whole band will suffer as a result. In concert band if you don’t learn the right rhythm in the music along with the notes the music won’t sound together. The process of chair placement auditions and honor bands has taught me to never give up and if you work hard enough you will
Attention getting device: Using sun protection was about as important to me as……… In other words, it was the farthest thing from my mind. Then one weekend at a soccer tournament, I decided not to use sunscreen or any other sun protections and stayed outside in the sun all day without protection that left with me with a painful sunburn and blisters on my shoulders. Your better believe that I thought twice about making sure to apply
Career in Music Being a professional recording/touring musician is what I have wanted to do since I was very young. It's my dream career, I can't see myself do anything else. Being an independent musician isn't easy though, there isn't really any colleges for young punk rock musicians to get a masters degree in smashing guitars. There are music colleges out there like the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, but those colleges are meant for the "formal" musicians who want to be the "back up" band for American Idol. Values There are many different values to being a successful touring musician, but surprisingly it all depends on you and your personality entirely.
I’m all certain they thought I wasn’t going to amount to anything, but I bet they all would bite their tongues now if they were here…don’t worry I didn’t send them an invite. Besides the loneliness and missing my family which is a given. Marines are not solitary creatures. We need other Marines so the worst situation you can put a Marine in is to isolate him from other Marines. You can be stirring shit barrels in 120 degree weather and somehow have fun, or standing firewatch in the rain or freezing snow.
As the summer nears its end, band kids everywhere prepare for the hectic nature of marching band. We all begin to dread the coming of band camp, but long for the passion and livelihood of the approaching marching season. Band has its ups and downs; however, the benefits it leaves us with are immeasurable. For instance, a benefit of joining band is the beautiful and irreplaceable experiences someone will get to partake in. However, one of the band’s most feared experiences is marching camp.
Self-tanning level if you are used, o.k., why not?. If this is your first time I recommend you spend your turn that day because the slightest streak or forgetting all over the body will show. And you can not do anything to fix it in time, unfortunately. Small Buttons ... People often have small pimples in the back. I call it the "back-born".
She would always describe to the other kids even though she knows they won’t believe her.She would describe the Sun as a penny, a stove on fire, and even, “The sun is a flower, that blooms for just one hour”(Bradbury,p.g2). She shouldn’t have kept on talking about the Sun because it makes the other children feel envious. This is so significant, because Margot knows that what she says about the Sun is mortifying to the other children because they don’t remember how the Sun looks like. The lesson that Margot got is to not continue doing things that will make other people annoyed or angry because they will do the same back. The theme of “All Summer in a Day” is treat others the way you want to be treated.
After all the warm-ups, the drum major dismisses each section to go onto the field to perform. Although the rigorous practices take up many hours, at the end of the day, the results are worth it. Each band member works hard and gives 110% when they perform. Freshman Julia Ma commented, “I think it pays off. All the hours we 've spent during rehearsals, it 's torture at times but it 's all worth it when you perform.” Sophomore Dana Cho added in, “Band members know that once they signed up for band, they signed up for not only total
“In any case, she refused to take the drug test and signed a paper for the termination of her parental rights to me instead” (137) 5. “If you were not made of resilient material, you would not have come this far” (212) 6. “Most of the time our personal monsters stay submerged, even though the constantly changing water keeps us on edge. Every once in a while a creature 's tail, fin, or snout will surface.” (146) (C) This can be connected to the quote “hard work pays off” because if you do not work for something either, somebody else will get the
“Drum-major, is your band ready?” the judge asks me before beginning our show at state championships. I begin to look around me, staring into a sea of excited faces, whose expressions look very eager to watch our best show yet. This is the moment that I’ve been dreaming of since freshman year, knowing that I’m the person who cues the first note that defines the rest of the show. I give my salute from the podium as a reply to the question, knowing that I have the best view of our accomplishments. No one would have expected a timid freshman to later take on the most prestigious role in the music department.
Pride, poise, and professionalism; these words are the foundation upon which my high school 's marching band program revolves around. When I originally transitioned from middle to high school, the organization centered on the members. Winning wasn 't the only focus of our band, and the year formed a love of band unparalleled by anything. That year, for the first time in our band program 's history, we made finals at our last competition in Havelock, changing our program for the worse. As our program grew in size, the band focused purely on winning.
If people didn’t get bothered than they would be happy and not know what to expect, because if no one in the entire world got bothered they wouldn 't have the knowing of how to be an actual human. In the book Fahrenheit 451 I am pretty sure that all the characters got bothered so when something happened they were use to it and didn’t get that worked up over it. So when Millie left Montag he was sad but later found out that he did not want anything to do with her. Therefore if people do get bothered they will so figure out what they don 't need and why the thing that happened is a good thing, that no one can change. You just have to keep living you life and see things on the positive side.
