What It's Really Like Being In Marching Band In Hot Weather

It's football season — but for some of us...that means it's marching band season! As wonderful as football games are, sometimes the heat can become a little hard for the marching band to handle in our uniforms. But we always stick it out through the weather, rain or shine.

So when the weather report says that the weather is great for a football game, the marching band feels a little differently than most fans in the football stadium.

In denial of the inevitable, you put on your jacket and bibbers. In full knowledge that something bad is coming.

You take the first step outside...and it's worse than you imagined. The sweating has already begun.

When you start marching, the ladies can feel it happening. The worst part...we can't do anything about it when on the field.

The sweat won't stop running into your eyes on the field. Good luck finding your dot through all that sweat.

Coming home and realizing just how exhausted you really are.

Regardless of the weather, the marching band never fails to show up, play our hearts out, and support our teams.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
