I guess this is more of a vent session, but nobody really knows what I'm actually going through on other boards. I'm a section leader this year. I never knew it was going to be so hard and stressful. We have to play our meorized music in front of our drum majors to prove that we know it in our band. Well, my section will not meorize their music. I've tried everything and I don't know what else to do. I just got 3 new people in my section. They're all doing well, but it is hard to catch them up. Our rehearsals our 3 hours long and I'm usually the last one to leave so I don't get home till 8:00 or after. Then I am taking all honors classes so I have 3 to 4 hours of homeowork to do plus practicing for at least 30 minutes. I've been playing so much though my mouth piece is rubbing my lower lip raw and now my wrist is starting to hurt with every little thing I do. My band director was supposed to be looking into a neck strap, but he still hasn't done it and probably won't. I totally broke down today. My boyfriend went home with a wet shirt because my face was burried in his chest and I was balling. Anyway, I should go to bed. It won't do any good because I will still wake up tired, but I should at least try to sleep anyway. Thanks for listening and I'm sorry this is totally off subject.
