34 Times Tumblr Perfectly Captured The Struggle Of High School Marching Band
Always getting into treble. ♬
When you wondered who thought only breathing sporadically while carrying heavy equipment and marching at high tempos was a great idea.
When you would occasionally fall to temptation and play with the percussion equipment when no one was looking.
When you rolled your eyes at the cheesy band puns, but inside they secretly filled your heart with glee.
When you became tired of explaining why competitive marching band should be considered a sport.
When you would sneak into band early and shuffle the stands around to avoid the one that always dumped your music on the ground.
When you struggled with deciding between auditioning for drum major and staying on the field so you could continue to play your instrument.
When no one outside of band knew about DCI... and any comparison you could make between your band and drum corps made you feel legit as hell.
When you heard that dreaded crackling sound signifying it was time to leak your spit everywhere and freak out the flute section.
When you found yourself seething over inconsiderate intruders, because the band room was sacred territory reserved for the chosen few.
When you prepared for your first competition and were convinced that you would either pass out, go completely blank, or just wet your pants once you stepped onto the field.
When you spent so much of your free time complaining about band knowing you would never, ever leave it.
When you knew that despite the long hours, sweaty days, freezing nights, and tireless repetition, you loved band unconditionally.
When you realized that, more than anything, you wish you could do it all over again.
