The Trip of a Lifetime…

Today has been a REALLY long day. Having not slept well the night before and being at the school at 4 am, it’s been hard to stay up this whole time. As usual, ourplane was delayed, but we still ended up being on time. We played tourists by eating lunch at the Farmer’s Market, and then touring Hollywood; the Sunset strip and Ss.anta Monica Blvd being the main attractions. I do hope that this trip does become a little better. Today was a really stressful day, for it being long and people being irritable, things just got crazy. But I do hope after a good nights sleep, everyone in the morning will be a happier person.

The Final Night

As I, and many other band kids get ready for bed, I know we are all thinking that this it, this is what we have been waiting for, for two years. Our parents are going to be thinking that we are “sleeping”, but we all know that that is not going to happen. I think that this has finally hit me that this actually going to happen. And I think that twenty years from now, I’ll be thinking back to the trip and I’ll excited just like if it happened yesterday. This night is like THE Christmas Eve for all of us. I believe that not many of us were too worried about the actual Christmas this year, rather than our Eve of Pasadena. As I opened all of my presents yesterday, I was thinking to myself if I should bring all of the goodies with me down to California, and not much past that. This trip has added a whole new level of excitement to the holidays. I know I will not ring in the New Year as I have in the past because of the necessary hours of sleep that will be needed for the next day. We get an early bed time and an even earlier wake-up, so we’ll be celebrating New Years East Coast style. I really wasn’t that excited until I watched the Disneyland holiday special, and then I realized that I would be marching in that parade (Disneyland parade) in a couple of days. These last few hours are going to be filled with anticipation and pure adrenaline for all of those leaving in the wee hours of the morning. I don’t think that many band kids will be sleeping on the plane in the morning. Too many things are going on; there are going to people doing homework, playing games, listening to music, and even reading. Tomorrow is going to be such an eventful day for all of the bandies on the trip, and even some of the parents too.

12 hours

Our last football game.

I can’t believe that in only 12 hours the South Kitsap High School Marching Band is going to be on a few buses heading toward Sea-Tac, and then on down to California. This has been an amazing ride South Kitsap! Now we get to actually live the dream that we all have been dreaming for the past two years. Congradulations to everyone who has stuck with us this whole time.
