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.

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.

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

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
