Alright so I haven't been on here in awhile I know. Horrid spelling, marching band is over, concert has begun, winter break is now in session, not much else. I'd love to chat more but a girl needs her sleep.

Greetings from An Astate Marcher

How's everyone doing? It's been awhile since I've seen a lot of you guys. Hope everything is going well! =)

I thought I'd tell everyone that, since the ASU football team won the Sun Belt Conference, they are going to the New Orleans Bowl... Which means the band is going, too! It's going to be in Lafayette and not New Orleans(for obvious reasons). We'll be leaving December 19, have the game the 20th, and be back the 21st.

This game is going to be on ESPN. Not ESPN-U. Not ESPN 8: The Ocho. haha

The ASU Band will be performing at pre-game and halftime. We're bringing back the show.

It's going to be so much fun! Everyone should go if they are free. If you go through ASU, I think you can get the tickets for $20.

Hoping I get to come visit everyone before the semester is over. Bye, guys! Go STATE!

Greetings from UA!

We're doing a Phantom of the Opera Show this year-I think we're doing it once or twice more, and definitely at the marching contest in Siloam Springs! Come see us, this band is finally doing something along the lines of JHS. Which is to say, I'm backwards marching in a form at somewhere around the tempo of WAYTOOFAST with a tuba on my back. This saddens me, but I haven't fallen yet.

I will be at the Arkansas Open. I hope you are all doing great work this week to make us, once again, the sole victors of the AO, because we are the most awesome ever. So if you want to see me, don't hesitate to run up and tackle me-I doubt I'll push you off, even if I don't know you, but don't be offended by my confusion. I will, I think, be fairly obvious to see-those who know me, you'll see why.

One final note! My nickname here is not "Pumpkin"(I wish it was!) but rather, "Bear". I'm the largest person in my section, and this frightens me.

P.S.-The band is way better than the football team here, and if you'd like to talk to me about the band program, don't hesitate to do so-I'm more than happy to talk about it.

Thought I'd make a post on here. It's been awhile.

I just wanted to say that I've seen you guys at the football games and contests, and you guys are doing very well. I'm very impressed! It's good seeing all you guys when I go back. All the hugs make me happy. =)

Keep the JHS pride alive. Keep kicking booty at the contests.

Remember, I'm still in town. If you guys need anything, I'm just a phone call(or instant message) away. ;-)


"Who's the best band?"

Wanna know something really sad?

The JHS pit and band played together for the first time last week, and I sat there listening. I started tearing up. I almost cried because I would never get to play with you guys again.

I love JHS band, and I will never feel as loved as when I was there. I was in band with some people for 6 years. High school only made us closer. I've never felt so loved and cared for by any group of people in my entire life. Sure, my family loves for me, but I've never felt so close to any of my friends in my life. I always had someone to hug me, hold me, tell me they love me, talk to me, be silly with me, dance around, make up musicals, or read dirty books... lol You will all love band. It was the best thing to ever happen to me. I have really strong friendships because I was in band; my grandkids will be friends with their grandkids. haha

I honestly had a second family with the JHS band... Actually, I still HAVE a family there.

I WILL be back to visit. You better be awesome and make me proud!

"Who's the best band?"

-better believe it.
I'm going to miss you guys. =)

(sorry for being so sappy. it's just been one of those days... lol)

Just saying hi to everyone.

I move into my dorm tomorrow, and ASU band starts tomorrow for me also.
It should be a lot of fun.

...I hope. lol

Good luck with band, everyone! Hopefully, I'll be able to do something on my Friday nights and see you guys.
Football season. Wooo!
