1) Well, to start, I MADE ALL-STATE! First chair in orchestra in fact! And I won only by 2 points. Talk about a close call!
2) I going to be playing a solo with band (hopefully) if Steven Shoop ever gets back to me…

I’d have to say that like Mazama the most, the percussionists really pulled it together on that one, as it required everyone to play a single staccato note at the same time, but no one was late or early!

My dad, brother, and I just stayed above ground and watched the lightning. :-)

I’m struggling with the Marathon problem that I have to do for my AP Chemistry summer work. I think I set up the equation properly but I’m still getting a g/mol ratio below one, which obviously isn’t right…
This summer I’ve been listening to way more music than I usually do. Here’s the list of what I listen to, and when I listen to it:
