Like every other week, this week was a busy one and it went by fast! I didn’t notice I came back from spring break, I guess it’s because my mind is filled with things I have to do and must accomplish. Like any other week, I’m still filling my time with my band duties.. It seems like I’m more committed this year than last year because I’m actually making an effort this time. I am guessing it’s because I’m in my senior year and everything now counts. With that said, graduation is on May 30th as it seems.
The initial “push” that inspired me to join band is.. During my freshmen year, I saw a a few guys wearing the band uniform, making their way across school coming back from taking their senior panorama picture. The uniform looks really nice and I knew then, that’ll be me in a few years doing the same thing. I was already a musician, but not in any official group or anything. And I got myself weaved into band and climb my way to the top. And so- “4″ years later (which was on Thursday), I wore my uniform in pride and took the panorama picture. It was legit because only 3 out of 12 seniors wore the band uniform. I accomplished my dream from Freshmen year, and now you know why I wanted to join band (but not my reason of staying). It’s pretty lame but it’s a unique story.
My weekday concluded with our annual Shakey’s Pizza Fundraiser (which I booked). We all spent almost $80 combined on 3 pizzas with lots of mojos (fries) & fried chicken. As a group, there was just 6 of us and it was already fun. We sat, talked about random things, and watched as I screamed random things at Shakey’s. Most of it was inappropriate because I forgot it’s also a kid-friendly zone… And things like, “FOURSQUARE MAYOR IN THE HOUSE! AMEX DISCOUNT!!” I also dropped by the arcade- but instead of collecting 1000+ tickets, I gathered 200 tickets this time. I suppose it’s because we only spent $5 on tokens instead of $25 like last year. Instead of enjoying ticketed machines, I just went along and raced 3 of my friends on some car racing game. I won 3 out of 4 games- only because “I have a licence”. That’s other people’s excuse..
