Marching Band Reunion
My good ol marching band in high school is having a reunion and IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m way more excited about this than my regular 10 year high school reunion. I never cared about most of my high school class but the people I was with day in and day out was the marching band :rock:
I loved marching band! I was in the colorguard and even though way back in the day the colorguard wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t always considered a part of the marching band I think the years I was there we made a pretty big impact. My sophomore year I think the colorguard doubled in size and stepped it up a notch. Although the ugly white dresses we wore for all 3 years I was in it sucked on so many levels.
Colorguard was a huge part of my life and I believe is a big part of who I am now. I canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t tell you how hard it was at times and I can still remember how it felt to perform a kick ass show and have a whole stadium giving you a standing ovation. In my senior year the colorguardÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s very last performance in finals was nearly flawless and one judge gave us a score of like 98 I think.
I made such wonderful friends and even met my first two loves through marching band. All those hours I spent on the field, in the band room and listening to Mr. Bunten yell ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œONE MORE TIMEÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â will forever be ingrained in my heart. The performances that we did in pouring rain and even the parades we did in the freezing cold.
What a time it all was, what a time.
