It's been way over a month since I've posted. Anything.
And for that, I apologize.
I've recently joined Facebook. It's crazy, right? Now I just need Twitter, Skype, Instagram, what else is popular right now? But the Facebook hustle is always posting. So, there's my first excuse.
It's fall football season, which ends in November. But we might also be doing a small volunteer pep band for basketball, which is a winter sport. Also, it's my first year as a jazz trumpeter, which is much harder than being a jazz bassist. And it sounds lamer.
And who can forget actual school and all that? I don't have orchestra this semester and no fourth block band this nine weeks, with no jazz band next semester. Ugh. But, I will admit that everything's coming up roses other than my schedule.
Not only that, but I have two quintets and a quartet to work on for Solo and Ensemble in February. Two 5's and a 6. We plan on taking them all to State, and I've never even been to District. A friend and I are writing two Broadway musicals, I'm writing three marching shows, an original piece AND a pep band tune. I'm having a lot of fun with them all but I will say the pep band tune is my favorite so far.
And finally, even though I've never really found an appeal to it, I logged on to Netflix this week. I mean, who wants to pay for a movie service where you can't even watch The Goonies, Edward Scissorhands, or Little Shop of Horrors? Well, a lot of people actually. I've finally found the right genre of movie for myself. 80's comedies and gay comedies. Not combined though. I always thought I was more of a "Let's throw on Mary Poppins and Drink Hot Chocolate as the sun sets" sort of person, but it turns out I'm a "I'll sit in the dark and eat Nature Valley bars and mandarin oranges while watching Heathers on my dirty computer screen" kinda person.
Anyway, just an update on life. Thank you all! Kisses!
