chatty post-spring band concert

Why hello there! Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I’m sorry I haven’t been too active on here and my socials. I have been really busy because last night was my bands spring concert!

This post is going to be a little different from my other posts. No graphics or anything really, just me talking about life and the concert and stuff. I didn’t really get to take any pictures so hopefully, it’s not too boring. 😀

so grab some popcorn or a snack and read the post!!

sping band concert

✧post concert✧

before the concert, we all went to a room to put our instruments together, warm up and make sure all our notes were okay. I play clarinet so It took me a little longer than some of the other kids to put together my instrument.

So there are three groups;

Beginners

Intermediate

and Advanced.

I’m in the Beginner group but in the fall I will be moving into the Intermediate group.

In my group, there are about 9 kids? Two Clarinets, (including me) Three Sax’s,(my brother) Three low bras, a trumpet (my lil brother) and yeet that’s all.

I’m kind of friends with everyone in the group, but my closest friends are Gaby and Gaby.

Yes, they have the same name. We were going to call one Brie and the Other Gaby but Its just really hard for me to keep track of names so I call both of them Gaby.

I am also close with Claire, she’s my fellow Clarinetist, we are the only clarinets. She’s a little younger than me and really sweet.

Then my brothers of course.

I’m not really friends with the low brass cliche that much, but one of the guys is my secret twin because we are born on the same day and the same year and we are both the exact same age, so YEET.

Yeah I dunno why I keep saying yeet so much, I just love it!

SO after that, we formed a line to walk onto the stage thingy, I guess I was the leader of the group which meant I had to lead everyone onto the stage which was terrifying.

The beginner band went first.

Even though this wasn’t my first band concert, I was very nervous because this time we had to stand up for solos and bow, meaning that the stand would no longer be able to hide my face and keep me anonymous so that no one had to know that I, Ava was the girl who kept squeaking on her clarinet.

Also sorry for this post being messy, I just really wanted to keep it simple and “chatty”

✧during the concert✧

So we all sat down, adjusted our stands (aka positioned the stands so that no one could see our faces)

The first song we played was called Buglers Dream, Its an Olympic anthem and sounds really pretty.

Then we had the first set of solos.

I did a solo which I was very worried about because it had a kind of difficult note in it.

I don’t even remember how it went because I think I played it too fast. oOf

Then we played engines of change, its a really cool song.

Then there was another set of solos, including the woodwind solo, (which I was apart of)

It was an adaptation of Erie Canal, which is actually a song I used to sing when I was little.

I HAVE A MULE her NAME IS SAL 15 miles DOWN THE ERIE CANAL.

Of course, it sounded way better than five-year-old me trying to sing

Then we finished with the song Bandroom Boogie. I felt really happy because everything sounded mostly good. We were playing real songs. Last year we played simple songs like Twinkle Twinkle and Mary Had a Little Lamb. I was so proud of myself because I had improved so much and I had overcome so big struggles I had with the clarinet.

Then the Intermediate and the Advanced played their songs and they sounded really awesome. Plus they had flutes and percussion so everything sounded more… magical?

then it ended,

✧after the concert✧

After the concert, there were some snacks and cookies and drinks out. My friends and I all congratulated each other and made vine references. I dropped my cookies. Twice.

YOU ALMOST MADE ME DROP MY CROISSANT *cookie*

IT was all fun and jolly. After a half hour of eating, talking about vines (and tom holland my precious spidey boi) we left.

The concert went really well, and it shows me that hard work and pushing through really has a great outcome.

My little clarinet has taught me so much these past few months and I love it a lot.

Thank you so much for reading my little chatty post, If you liked it please tell me, I think I would like to do this again. It’s so relaxing just typing up my thoughts and not worrying about making a “perfect and professional’ blog post.

✧do you guys play any instruments?✧ have you ever been in a concert? what’s your favorite instrument?✧

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?

Hey, welcome back to my corner of the web! Today’s blog post is going to be about me talking about how I feel and almost ranting, but not like an angry rant, just like me talking about something that I feel often, and I am hoping that maybe you can relate to it.

anyways

let us start this post.

Isn’t strange, no matter how much you have, you always long for more. Even if it was the best day in your life, there was still one thing that you didn’t do, such as listen to your favorite song or go to that cute antique shop you have been wanting to go to. Somehow that longing, makes you kind of forget about everything you did do, and you just focus on what you didn’t get to do.

its human nature

but that’s, not an excuse

We think that we deserve everything that we get, and if we don’t get it we feel as if we aren’t treated kindly. Like, let’s say your Mom says you can’t borrow any books from the library today, or your Dad won’t let you get the new app that came out. You feel as if they are being unfair. In your mind, you feel as if they owe you it. Now, sometimes this feeling can be subtle and you don’t really care that you can’t get a book from the library or download the app, but there is always something that taunts you, what if a  book that you wanted is on the shelves and you really want to take it home with you, but your mom says no. You probably will feel upset, and bitter. I can understand that. This all may not make sense and, that’s okay, I am just trying something new and I am just sharing my heart and how I feel and I am trying to inspire others to be grateful.

 things we don’t like happen

even though bad things happen, it’s up to you to make the right response.

but that’s hard

it is, but remember that there are so many other people that are going through the same thing. You are not alone.

🙂

So I don’t know if this made sense or anything, but maybe if you want we can discuss everything and talk about it. I really want to hear what you have to say and, yeah.

Even though it may seem as if you don’t have everything you want, remember you are blessed. And I think that we should start counting our blessings and stop taking things for granted, we have so much more then we think.
