Mixed thoughts...

Just a note, before I start. This is not in response to your post Chris, it really just sparked these thoughts from me. I'm not yelling at anyone, nor am I mad at anyone...just thinking.

No, I'm not stressed right now, don't know why, I'm just not. I should be, but if I put on a mood ring right now, it would be clear. Things with the senior show are...going, and by the time Thursday rolls around it should all work. It's always does. That's the weird thing with this band; it always seems like there is no way everything is going to work out and we always seem to find a way. The really weird thing about the band is that we always have a really bad practice right b4 the actual performance and everyone thinks that its gonna be terrible but it always clicks...and , if for some reason it doesnt click...whatever. There are more important things in life than "the perfect show." I know every class thinks, "when we get to do our show, we are going to do this so much better and we wont fight or anything," thats what we thought, kinda naive of us, huh? Well, to tell you the truth, most of the seniors are very happy with their show and we cant wait to see it put together. Some of us have been waiting a loooooong time for this weekend, and even if some of our decisions dont always make sense to the younger ones, we are very tired, but excited. I have hope and "though hope is frail, its hard to kill." Again, please, don't think Im yelling at anyone, if only you guys could see how calm I am as I type this...Im not mad, and I hope no one is mad at me. I wasnt trying to attack anyone for their comments, I just wanted to type what was going on in my head when I read Chris' blog. I really hope you dont think I was mad at you.

"We were talking together
I said, "what's up with this weather?"
Dont know whether or not
How sad I just got
'Cause on my own volition.
What if I'm just missing the sun

And tomorrow, I know,
Will be rainy at best.
And the forecast, I know,
Is that I'll be depressed.

But I'll wait outside
Hopin that I'll catch sight of the sun.

Because on and off,
The clouds have fought
Their controll over the sky

And lately the weather
Has been so Bi-polar
And Consequently so have I"

True that.

It's easy to complain when you're not in charge. Doing our Sr. show was one of the most stressful times I ever had in the CCHS band ... but there were many that made me the think the band was done for ... fortunately I was wrong.
Life will go on. Band is not the most important thing in the world. Unless you enjoy it while you have it ... you'll be miserable.
