It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.

Anonymous asked: Why is there such a rivalry between the east coast and west coast in WGI (and DCI as well...? I know WGI better)?
From what I know, there’s a few things. First off, the two major regions of drumline (West and Midwest) don’t actually get to compete head-to-head until finals week. This leaves the constant anxiety of only being able to approximate where you stand based on regional scores, which doesn’t help much. Secondly, West and East drumming and musical styles differ greatly between each other. This is very evident just by watching shows. Both places have their own respective philosophies and musical/visual tastes. Culturally as well, each group has it’s own personalty, and differences in attitude can create tension of their own.
I find it kind of ironic that the great battle this year was Pulse vs. MCM, because I honestly can’t think of two more different groups in WGI. The West Coast came out on top this year, but I still have tons of respect for what everyone across the country does, because drumline isn’t easy regardless of how you do it.Reblog notes: 13 notes
Anonymous asked: How was Dayton?
The absolute best week of my life! I spent a week with my friends and got to drum all day. Then I got a gold medal and partied for a full day afterward. There isn’t much more I could ask for.
If heaven is a real place it would feel something like finals weekend for sure.Reblog notes: 10 notes
