15 Memes To Kick Off Band Camp

I have spent about five years in marching band, eight years in band all together. Once you have spent such time and dedication to a program, it seems to become a part of you. A part of you that you'll never forget. I feel as though being in band for so long has conditioned me to get excited near the end of July because the start of a great marching season is only a couple of weeks away! In honor of being excited for the many band kids about to start band camp, I have looked through many band camp memes and picked the ones that made me laugh and think of the fond memories I have from my experience in marching band. There are some things about band that are no fun, but the good times far outweigh the bad.

For the front ensemble

Are you really on your phone right now?

What did you think it was?

One time during band camp our drum major was on their phone and the director called them out for it. After that, the band kids made it a running joke. Good times.

No more water?!

Bring lots of water! Stay hydrated!

When I was a novice, I asked my parents to bring me water when I ran out. Fortunately, this only happened once because I purchased a big water jug as soon as rehearsal was over.

Oh no

Just keep marching...

Moments like this used to always make me cringe. It's okay, though. Everyone will get their parts down eventually.

Get ready to play

Train wreck. Every time.

Sometimes they go all the way through and sometimes they just have to stop it.

Hey battery...

Speaking from experience, this is a completely legitimate reaction.


Drum line is very serious on the cool things they get to do. For the two years I was on bass line, we were all upset about being promised a bass turn and then not getting one. Of course they added a bass turn the year I graduated.


There is no better feeling!

Some drill sets are just so complicated. But when you work for it and finally get it down, it's one of the most satisfying feelings ever. Once you get it down it becomes easy.

Oh, yikes

Cold runs are the worst runs.

Sometimes the performance will fix itself and sometimes the director will cut it off, clean for a few hours, and then try again. It's all part of the fun.

I just can't

I'm coordinated but not that coordinated.

At least no one is alone in the struggle.

One more time

The never ending cycle.

No, you're doing great

More like band directors vs. band parents.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
