Yep. Sophomore year. Quite frustrating. I've got a band that I can't get together, Marching Band is pissing me off, and my teachers range from "asshole" to "Tolerable", and I'm tired. Jesus Christ, I'm tired. I just don't feel awake anymore. I sleep a lot and usually have a headache when I'm not.
Right now, I'm not tired. I feel fine. so I'll write.
My band. I really like the guys in my band. All of them are nice guys and excellent musicians, and we write great stuff together. This is is the main reason why this annoys me. We should be getting together, and writing more music, but we can't. One of us, it seems, always has something else, and it's so frustrating, especially when it's me that has something else to do. I try to clear up my schedule, but it just doesn't work. I understand when things like this happen, it isn't my fault, or any of my bandmates, because we still have to go where our families go. It's one of those things that frustrates you, but you can't do anything about it. I just hope we find time and don't break up.
Marching Band is a joke. I love the concept, and I loved doing it last year, but this year, not enough people take it seriously. Sure, it's supposed to be fun, but the fun is doing it. People aren't listening, some (not most) of the section leaders are extremely hypocritical, and the rehearsals are run VERY poorly. We don't practice enough, (wow, I see a trend here) the practices are all disjointed in structure, and very confusing. And the people, MY GOD THE PEOPLE. I don't know about the color guard because I don't hang out with any of them, but it seems like everyone has some sort of personal issue with someone else, and it makes me sick. Why? Seriously. You don't get this bullshit on the football team.
Alright. I'm done bitching to you like a scorned 8th grade girl. Here's What I'm Reading this week.
Yup, really good so far. Palahniuk never fails to deliver.
