yep, you're seeing that right.
we were in high school marching band.
except we were cool. cool band nerds do exist!
while we were looking awesome in our uniforms and feather plumes all our friends were playing football and making out with their boyfriends under the bleachers.

we got ten minutes of freedom from the bleachers to let down our suspenders
and put on our beanies in any attempt to appear as cool as possible.
at that time we would grab our hot dogs and meet up with friends
who weren't ashamed of us.
then our band instructor would hunt us down
if we were a minute late to warm ups before our halftime show.
we had to be there ready to march in our awesome rolly shoes
without a spec of dirt on our jackets.
expect no less from a district winning marching band.

there were a few cool things about being in band despite what some may say...

1) talent- it takes skill to march in perfect formation while
playing memorized songs by the styx
2) band trips and competitions- we went to washington d.c., disney land,
and different parts of california and washington
3) band camp- just kidding band camp sucked

kylie tooted on her trumpet
while lisa went to town on her snare
and i smacked a bass drum like the energizer bunny.
good times we had in marching band.
getting yelled at over the intercom and hiding under our hats from the "hotties."
somehow we juggled work, school, soccer, basketball, church, socializing and band.
we turned out pretty cool, right?

  3. My boyfriend was in the band and he was pretty much the ONLY cool person in that thing! haha But he loved it and I liked watching him. I loved that 15 minutes they got off for 3rd quarter. Cute post!

  4. I think marching band is cool! Maybe I would have been in it if I wasn't a cheerleader, especially since being in marching band meant you were excused from taking P.E. Haha. You girls definitely turned out great.
