Hello, it's been a while....  
Hey everyone!

It's been almost two months since I have been on here. I was not really thinking I would totally stop coming on here and doing my moddly duties.
I have missed you!!

Life just got really busy and things happened.

Some things that happen have made me struggle with anxitey. I worry about everything but I'm trying not to worry and just take it day by day but it's it's so hard for me. Well that's enough of that.

Now I going to give you an update of what I have been up to last couple of months.

First things first, The CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!
That game was SO exciting! I almost had a heart attack!

So pretty much the main thing that kept me busy was Marching Band.
This season was full of twists and turns and ups and downs.
This was my 5th year doing marching band and it has been the most challenging one specially emotionally.
It doesn't help that I take things personally. I take my job very seriously and I put my heart and soul in it. I love and care for my band kids so much.

For example one the things this season that just pissed me off!
A parent attacking me on facebook messaging instead of talking to me in person and not letting me tell her the whole story. She implied that I left her daughter out. I did no such thing. I was helping other girls that have never been to a band competition before. Her daughter has been in guard for 4 years and she never told she was having trouble. Mind you I have 12 girls to watch over and also help band members get ready too sometimes. It's not like I just was chillin and doing nothing. Everyone is really responsible to get ready by themselves. We can't hold all of the 32 band members hands and do everything for them. They are all old enough to get ready. Well enough venting about that subject. I just didn't appreciate that the mother pretty much thought I was alienated one of my girls. I would never do that!

I won't go into any more details of some of the other things that went down. I'm sure you guys don't want to hear it all.

This season had so really great moments in it too!
The best one for me was when we beat our rival band and got 2nd place at the competition! We also got BEST VISUAL in our class!! We did SO WELL at the competition this year! I was SO PROUD OF THEM!! I was speechless when I heard we got BEST VISUAL. That night was AWESOME!! I hope to have many more of those moments as a marching band director. The kids, my co-directors and I put in so much work in. It was just so nice to actually come out on top for once.

Most recently, we went to our local nursing home and had a little pep rally with the residents. We played some songs and then we ate pizza and danced with the residents. I was so proud of how nice and respectful our kids were to the residents. It made my heart swell with pride when I saw one of them interacting with one of the residents. The best moment of the night was when our drumline found a former drummer. The nurses asked if the resident could play with them and they said sure. So our little drummers played with gentleman for about 20 minutes. It was the sweetest thing and made his night.

(sorry not sorry for another kris bryant gif. look at him! he's too cute!)

Also that gif is kind of how I been feeling lately in life.

Well I hope you all have been good. If I missed anything important in your life. Let me know.

The Cubs win was awesome. The whole World Series was great baseball all around.

Yay Cubs!

Certain parents are ALWAYS going to find crap to ***** about. It makes me crazy! I'm glad y'all had a successful season. It is evident you are passionate about it and love what you do. Keep it up!

I'm glad to see you post hon. Sorry about the parent drama in marching band. I know from skating that parents are the absolute worst sometimes and being personally attacked is just horrible :( Congrats on the successes though!

I'm sorry about your struggles with anxiety. *hugs*

Yay Cubs!! I'm a Red Sox fan, but with them out of it I was rooting for the Cubs to win it all.

Parents can be crazy (and rude). Sorry you had to deal with that, but glad there were still some good moments, too.

Sorry to hear about the rude parents, but it sounds as if you have had more positives than negatives!
