call me old fashioned but linking people to your tuition gofundme before you receive a contract rubs me the wrong way

You’re old-fashioned because god forbid someone especially someone under 18, who may be too overwhelmed with high school and general life obstacles to also…

It’s not fundraising that’s the issue. It’s asking people for tour fees when you don’t even know if you’re marching. If I’m donating money to somebody, I want proof that my money is actually going to that and isn’t going to be lost if the member fails to march. That’s why I never started fundraising until I had my contract signed. I’m with the OP on this one.

♪(´ε` ) STOP BRAGGING ABOUT HOW MUCH SEX / HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU HOOKED UP WITH ON TOUR IT MAKES BOTH YOU, YOUR CORPS, AND DCI LOOK BAD.

(^з^)-☆IMAGINE HOW INTIMIDATED THIS MAKES KIDS WHO DONT WANT TO DO THOSE THINGS BUT REALLY WANT TO MARCH.

*\(^o^)/* IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE POTENTIAL MARCHERS…

Never had sex. Never kissed anyone. Never let anything stop me from doing my job. 

Except for shin injuries. It’s hard to do your job when you can’t hit dots.

So one of my best friends, Lizzie (the girl in the awesome Blue Stars 50th uniform pictures you see floating around) is in love with Eric Whitacre - particularly October. It was her bus hype song. Last spring, Eric Whitacre had a concert at Ball State, and I made sure to get Lizzie from Dayton so she could attend. Unfortunately, I had a dress rehearsal that night, and I had to leave before the Q&A portion. She chose to follow me to that rehearsal, missing the chance to meet her favorite composer and get a picture. 
Her birthday being just a few months later, I knew I had to make it up to her. I secretly contacted some people in his offices and arranged to have October shipped to the UK for a signing. It arrived well after her birthday, but I got to watch her open this on Skype a week before we left for the 2014 tour. I’ve never been so excited to give a gift, and I will likely never give a gift this good for quite some time.

She just asked me if I’ve had any luck getting my apartment for spring. I told her I couldn’t apply for the one I wanted without her help because I need proof of income (which she has and I don’t) and a history of past homes. She asked about getting a short-term lease. I told her I couldn’t look into the property without that information from her. “Why do you need me to apply?” I literally just said why. “Who told you that? I’ve rented alone before.” You’re right. I just made this shit up because I’m *not* trying to figure out where I’m living. 

Rant.

I’m not going to lie. Fewer things piss me off than texting with my mom. That’s not the type of relationship we have in real life - one where we’re in constant communication. I don’t want to respond to nine questions in one text. I don’t want to reply to her questions about whether I have things under control. I’ve handled everything in my life so far - I shouldn’t have to explain every tiny detail about what’s happening. She assumed I didn’t get the job because I’m not listed on the site yet. I haven’t had my phone interview. Just wait for me to tell you what’s going on. 

Did I mention I hate texting my mom?

Blue Stars 2014 production notes

For 50 years people have been calling the Blue Stars home. 

We think of Home as an extraordinary place, a place filled with special people and memories. A place to which you can always turn. It is where our heart is. 

In 2014 the Blue Stars will look at the idea of home in its production of “Where the Heart Is.” The show will explore what it means to build a home, and how that environment shapes and forms the love of a family.

I did this thing. It’s my last thing I could do. I’m glad it was my thing.
