Well im the drum captain in marching band. It was friday and we had a regular band competition on saturday. First period that day the band director laid it on the drumline that we had a competition at 10:00 am that same day. We had no time to practice and we still laid it to the other drumlines and came out 1st all the way. I also past my SAT w/ flying colors and got a scholarship. In conjunction w/ that its also homecoming here and they just met my new g/friend and we are homecoming king and queen. To top it off they heard that i have straight A's and its my B-day in 2 weeks.
