Yeah that was me! I actually did hear you say that lol. And also something about the Mobile area and I was like "Omg maybe he does know who I am". But alas! I decided not to say anything because I was hoping to have as few awkward encounters in one day as possible haha.
yep, that was directed entirely at you hahaha. it’s all good, I try to avoid overly awkward situations as well lol.
Okay so Spirit's show was amazing! You guys are winderful! I actually went to your rehearsal at North Forrest high school. I was apart of Greg's fan club lol. And I actually was walking right next to you going back to the buses but I didn't say anything because I wasn't sure if you knew who I was lol. But anywho. Great show! You guys are awesome! :)
AAAHH I KNEW IT. You were wearing bright green sunglasses, right? I was walking back to the food truck with DJ and saying out loud “I WONDER IF ANYONE IS FROM THE INTERNET HERE” hahaha. I’m really glad you enjoyed it though!
- on the road to ATL this week via the swamp tour!

- love y’all!
Do you have any advice for someone's who's new to marching band? I'm a highschool freshman this year, and I'm going to be in the marching band, I'm probably the only freshman for trombone and I'm completely nervous.. any advice?
oh geez this be an old question, and it’s been a while since I’ve been in high school band haha. But the best way is to start bonding with people in your sections. You’ll be with the low brass a lot, so it’ll probably be pretty crazy sometimes but you’ll definitely get a strong sense of unity there. As far as things go on the field, just remember to breathe, use good technique, do what’s expected of you, and ask your section leaders / nice vets / your instructors if you have questions. Oh, and have fun. Marching band was the thing I enjoyed the most in my 4 years of high school haha.
I got to meet DJ at that show.(everyone was like "so you know him?" and looked at me weird when I said "From tumblr...") I didn't see you though. D: And no worries. I'd do it all over again if I could, even with how things turned out.
haha I was walking around with him near you guys and he pointed you out, but you were in a convo and we didn’t want to interrupt :P and I suppose the time that you had & the people you got to be with is what matters.
DAVID!!! AHHHHHH!!! I saw you rehearse tonight! You guys were AWESOME! I can't believe you guys stayed in Stephenville, that's the first time a corps has rehearsed here and stayed the night. You guys made my night, I was there with asphaultcocktail (LaRissa). I'm going to be in San Antonio to see your show there too! Good luck! I hope to see you!
haha that’s great!! we love getting audiences when we rehearse :)) hope you enjoyed San Antonio!
I saw y'all in Muncie and I loved the show. (The best part, though, was sitting in the stands and watching my friends freak out because Ben came up to sit with me.) I can't wait to see y'all in San Antonio!
thanks, glad you enjoyed it! :)) ahaha Ben is great, hope you had fun in San Antonio!
so in Racine Scouts, we had a baritone player that we nicknamed Vegas because that's where he's from and we kept trying to get him to see Spirit's show, but he was always busy finding something on the bus or something like that when you guys were on. D:
haha that’s pretty awesome! I think me and DJ tried finding you at the show we had that got rained out. Sorry to hear about everything else that’s gone down though :/
HI! :) I'm Marcos! I'm in colorguard! I was contracted to do bluecoats this summer but after certain events, I was unable to actually march this summer. :/ I am going to DCI San Antonio, because I live here. haha Since you march SOA and have a melo solo, I'll be sure to look out for you! :)
nice to meet you! sorry to hear about that, it always sucks when the summer doesn’t work out :/ however I hope you enjoyed San Antonio, and that was me in the octet in the beginning of Poker Face haha :D
what's your opinion on what happened to teal sound?
my feels go out to them. I had made a good number of friends on here who marched there this season, some rookies and some vets. I know that some have been able to find holes/alternate spots in other corps (including SOA), but that’s something I’d never hope to happen to any corps.
this housing site has wifi…and tumblr isn’t blocked…hhehehe.
still quite a few b-day messages in my inbox, thanks to all of you :)
y’all should also give me some shout-outs at shows too, no not cause DJ’s gotten a ridiculous amount, I mean wat.. (but srsly lol)
tour goggles are real.
ooh. and if you’d like to send me a nice letter (or some noms), I think the maildrop addresses are on SOA’s website. it’d make me happy :)
daaaaaaaaaavid. hey. i wrote you a letter to give to you at hattiesburg :D and jordan's supposed to come see us too so you can come with her if you want idk. that might be awks actually i don't know. i make everything awkward XD ANYWAYS. i i hope tour's going amazing. :D
ahaha that’s awesome, can’t wait! tour is going great, thanks for asking :D
