It was the day of the final decision, all these days i’ve been waiting for trying to earn the position. Well today, Mr. Alvo announced the results. I did get the position and honestly right now i cant even describe how excited and happy i am for future band practices. Now that im a drum major, i am in control of the band and i will lead better than i did in alvarado. the best one that leads best out of 3 of us Isabell, Lawrence and me will get the main podium during the season. That is my new goal and i will successfully achieve that goal. I thank all the supports that has helped me through out the way,all the here. Tomorrow and sunday, i have scottish competition and best of luck for myself !
Everything, I was satisfied except one thing. I let Peaches borrow my music binder so he can make the copy of the scores, then when he put it back, he put it in different orders and it threw me off during my tryouts. But other than that, everything was good and I will now just wait till the banquet !
Clean run, but not as satisfied. I’ve made mistakes and created new habits on this day and just didn’t work out. I felt like i over practiced and was very nervous about this. During my double butter fly my hand was in the way, my step off’s last move to beat one was wrong and more. I wish I’ve done better, but the only thing i can do now is just to fix the mistakes and never do it again. It was a fun day though, this didn’t kill me. I was still happy with my result, beating Drum Major Jose Argueta. Albert in other hand did a fantastic job, ended with 2nd place and I am very proud and happy for him. Once again, it was an amazing year, meeting new drum majors and supporters. Some of the cool things happened today was they called out my name during Alberts performance and i just freaked out. Also starting from this year, WDMA started to recognize the world class performers with their band histories and other good stuffs. It was very nice and gave us the hardcore feelings. Anyways I will continue to work hard to get back on the track. I thank everyone who supported me with this and I will always be glad that I started doing this activity.
