Dear Band Family,

I love you guys.

I owe my character growth and increased passion to my home away from home. For this, I owe it to all of you to put in ten times more than I was previously able to in our band.

From the hopeful pep talks of Mr. Toft to the playful faces of the freshmen, I want nothing more than happiness and success in our band. I'm determined to face the grit and dedicate my whole being into this upcoming season.

To my leadership team, I promise to work to promote all of our interests, regardless of experience, titles or section. I love how open our communication has been this year and I look forward to working with and supporting each and every one of you.

To my fellow seniors, I promise to make all of us have the best year yet, or for some, the best and only year. I promise to do this by pushing hard and offering myself an an asset to you and the rest of the band.

To my drum majors Courtney and Anelise, I am so proud of you. I aspire to be as selfless and calm and as good of a leader as you two exhibit each day. You guys have been there for the band and for me at every turn, and I thank you for that. I promise to make you proud by striving to better myself and provide avenues for success for our band.

To Luc, one of my officers and my fellow trombone senior: I don't know what I'd do without you. We've been side by side since seventh grade. I think you've come to be a great, driven person and I'm extremely proud to have you in my section and in my leadership squad. I promise to work at least as hard as you do.

To Matt, my second chair and one of my trombone leadership members: you've come so far and there's still more to go. You have done incredible things and you will continue, I'm certain. I promise to be there for you to bring you to higher levels, both in the classroom and on the field.

To Landen, my most enthusiastic and proactive trombone leadership member: thank you for already taking a prominent role in our leadership process. You've generated so many great ideas and have maintained more communication with me now before the season has started than the whole of leadership had last year. I hope to make you as thoroughly impressed with me as I have been with you, as I know from this short time I've known you that you'll be an incredible leader.

To Jacob, my baritone senior and one of my best friends: you've heavily inspired me with your eternally positive and go-getter attitude. You're always the perfect mixture of chill and driven and I aspire to be the same. I know that having you officially in my section is an enormous asset and I hope to likewise do the same for you.

To my section vets Eli and Noah, you're loved and valued members of my section and of the band. Your dedication and efforts do not go unnoticed and I hope to continue to inspire you to push yourselves further.

To my numerous newbies JT, Jason, Amira and Aliyah: thank you for choosing to become a part of our family. I promise I'll start you off on a high note and put you on the path to go up from there. I so look forward to having you in my section.

This past year, I sought to push myself harder in order to work with the section in driving forward. I hope to utilize this even more efficiently and provide myself as the ultimate example and tool for the band.

Thank you for being there. I promise to be there for you.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
