band festival

October 22, 2007

Happy halloween everyone! I know its been AGES since my last post, but I have a killer world history teacher now and big projects every week. Last saturday us at western alamance had our annual central north carolina band festival, that lasted from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 P.m., I was working the whole time so was exausted. we had about 23 bands, including elon university, which was pretty cool. I did part of every job from holding up signs pointing to the middle school area, to giving out water. It was a great day. on thursday, I am going to have a charity halloween concert at 7:30 mayby some of you can come thats about it.

bumpy road

March 12, 2007

life truly is a bumpy road. As with all roads there are long flat streaches, and towering mountains. but most of the time there are gently sloping hills. say for instance, that you were driving cross-country and one day was flat as one day was bumpy. Same as some days there is the most work to be done and everything goes wrong, and there are days when life is just peachy. my limited audience, I would like to say that I hope your life is with out mountains and is smooth. I will be moving on to a new section of road in a few monthes, and hopefully it will be smooth too.
I may not be able to blog in these coming monthes, but hang on faithful readers through the time of skunk coming through the car!

fundraisers

February 26, 2007

Today I sat and looked at my new band fundraisers, thinking: Every year, the prices go up and so do the chances that i’ll lose one of my customers that have been loyal for years! These are supposed to raise money for the students, not to give the manufacturer an extra buck! As I am in a school, and we cant go door to door selling, my main clients are teachers, who dont make much!
mr. B, come and buy some =)

time vs. brain

February 19, 2007

Have you ever noticed how when you want to enjoy something, the time seems to by very quickly(such as the weekend) and when you want something to hurry up(like a red light) it seems to drag on forever? This is not really happening as a second is still a second, but your mind is just playing tricks on you. I find that to get rid of this sensation and make good times seem longer and bad time horter, simply think of the cons of the good times and the pros of the bad times. Do this lightly, so that you are not depressed, but this will shorten or leangthen your time period.
But of course you really havent changed anything.

Hello world!

February 12, 2007

have you ever noticed that in light of valentines day, everything seems so artificial? It is supposed to be about love, not enticing parents to buy boxes of holographic papers for their children to give to their friends. There should be tickets sold to a boat concert on the river, not spongebob hugging patrick!
