I don't mind the cheering, but some times it just gets annoying...


Agreed, but we REALLY needed the encouragement. The Area B marching contest is a bloodbath as it is... haha.
Not to mention it started to rain as we were in the 'ready' position prior to our pre-show. We can proudly say that our Preliminary performance at Area was one of our best yet! :)

TTR!

- Finding this website after an almost two-year hiatus!

-Finding the forum topic dedicated to moi :)

-Still not being a pessimist, even though I can't find a teaching job to save my life.

-Being a college grad, despite not being able to find a teaching job

-Being able to remember a screen name/password combo I've had on this website since I was 16 (because that's when I signed up for TxBands--I'm now 22. Wow.)

Things that rock:

Coming back to this place after being gone for about two years, looking over old post, and remembering old times.

I hope everyone's doing well. I miss TX band buddies from time to time =]

Things that rock? Conducting the band through a halftime performance at the New York Giants v. Dallas Cowboys game last night! :D Oh, and also appearing on the jumbo-tron during said performance. What an AMAZING way to end my Senior year's marching season. <3

Sitting at the casino in Vegas and walking out with 5K from slots when all I played on was a $50 bill, then going back the following night to play poker and walking out again with 12K ($1K buy in)..... I love Vegas and I love taking its money

TTR: re-discovering this website (and the thread dedicated to me!) as a 25-almost-26-year-old, fourth-year teacher!! I wouldn't be surprised if some of my students (present & former) are on this forum because the school I teach at is a powerhouse in the region.

I can't believe it's been TEN YEARS since I came onto this site, being a band-obsessed clarinet player trying to get the scoop on the competition. I really miss the days of scanning through this site and talking about region band competitions! Nowadays I have to live vicariously through my freshmen students! Haha.
