The ceremony went off without a hitch last night. This morning was way too early though. I think it was just exerting too much energy last night and then haveing to get up early and do it all again. We played another ceremony for General Durbin's changing of command. The temperature wasn't too hot, so it could've been a lot worse (like yesterday, GOODNIGHT!!!). The Band sounded good today. We are now off work, wahoo!!! Chief loves comp time! Our commander rocks!!! Easy day! I plan on going shopping for some new, fly dress shoes in a bit. hot date this weekend. wah dah tah
:) yeah, its a pretty good job. I definately want to keep it! the pay is decent, its not a lot, but i have more than average. its a lot more than most people my age make :) we play all over the place. My favorite was Corpus Christi beach, we played an hour ceremony for the Navy and then spent 2 days on the beach!!! we usually are in ceremonies in the summer time tho.
I'm from California. San Diego, I can't really ask for much more.
Corpus would be pretty cool, I love the ocean, and I actually like humidity. I have been to Texas a couple times, and oklahoma once, but each time was for like two weeks, not incl. travel. meh, I was there for horse stuff, and crap like that..
awww well thank you :) i really wish that men treated women better as a whole. guys can be such dim bulbs. generally, i don't usually like too many guys they can petty. i'm very selective about my male friends.
that happens a lot i think. people growing in different directions i mean.
I think women treat men pretty badly too, though. It's one big sloppy mess. In my opinion the biggest problem is lies - if everyone was honest with each other, I mean really sat down and explained shit, people wouldn't be hurt so often. But that never works.
what is worse than lying is denying, or just not saying. I mean, I f I'm doing something that bugs, just tell me to shut the hell up. I won't mind. I try to be as honest as possible. sometimes I say what I'm thinking, and it gets me in trouble.
People need to be honest about there feelings, true, but they need to learn to accept the truth from others mouths too, not take so much offense to everything.
I think my favorite Army Band gig was the Big Ass concert I did at the Sejong Cultural Center in Seoul, Korea in 2001 or the 4th of July Tour we did last year in Naples, FL. I haven't been on any of the cool gigs here. Just the standard ho hum stuff. Still ok.
I had alot of pshycological problems when I first moved to Central Texas. I have never lived so far inland and so far from a body of water. It's a drastic change when your body is used to the humidity and nuances that come with being near a large body of water. Subconciously, I think I am linked to water and need it stimulate my artistic abilities. Ho hum.
Savannah, Ga was nice though. Relaxed atmoshpere and very easy going. Lots of beaches and good music. I have yet to go to Corpus Christi.. I wanna go!
