Well, I finally decided to take the plunge!!!! When I was in college, I had the great honor of making it into one of the best known college bands here in Texas. The Longhorn Band!!! As a matter of fact, they where just recently selected as on of the Top Ten College Bands in the Nation and they were number 1. Every year the University Of Texas Longhorn Alumni Band performs at one of the Texas football games. Year after year, I think about doing it but chicken out. This year, I ran into a friend (a fellow former bandmate) and she mentioned it.. She said you should do it it's so fun!!! So I said well, I always think about doing it but I always forget, I then said so remind me. Well, she reminded me, she posted on my facebook that it was time to register. So after thinking about it, I decided why not, I mean what do I have to lose. How many people get to say that they where once a part of the Longhorn Band AKA the Showband of the Southwest!!! There are a lot of us out there, but not everyone realizes the level of difficulty there is to get into the band. So, here I go, I decided it was time to have an adventure, and I did it I signed up to come out in the Alumni Band performance. So what does this mean?????? Well I have to get out my piccolo, start practicing the music, and start exercising and walking for the next two weeks to get myself into shape so I can march up and down that field without passing out!!! I think I will also feel so accomplished if I am able to complete this task and then say, hey and this time I did it without my thryoid!!!!
Here is a picture of them!!! I can't wait to post one from my performance ha ha
