I am the happiest camper. Singing Hoosiers has made the beginning of college completely unforgettable. I love every one of these people and am so proud to have performed in front of THREE THOUSAND people with them tonight!
So much love.
I have an irrational devotion to award shows.
Also, spending 23.5 hours with 85 of the most amazing people I’ve ever met has left me unbelievably happy and hopelessly unprepared for my Religions of Asia exam tomorrow.
College! Midnight studying! Leftovers!
JOSH GROBAN SANG ONE DIRECTION
Okay it’s actually time to stop now.
The end of an era! Thespian of the Year, lunch with Waldo, and a great Finale with all my SOS seniors.
Tonight was the senior banquet for my choir and our director, though she isn’t fond of our class, called up each graduating student along with their parents for a goodbye speech. My mom is in Florida so I went up alone, and upon seeing this, two of my classmates, Dan and Caleb, came up and stood in as my “dads”. It was absolutely hilarious and exactly the reason I love this senior class. No matter what our directors say, we are incredibly supportive of each other.
Our class song is “I’ll Be There For You” from Friends. Though it was chosen because we’re sick of sad senior songs, I think it applies. It’s very difficult to be told by your teachers and the people that you look up to that you failed. It is even harder when I feel closer to this group of people than I have any other year in choir.
So what I realized tonight is that I don’t need validation from any outside source to feel proud of my classmates. I will look back on my years in Sounds of South positively, as I think you should always do. Life is too short to dwell on what could have been. Rather, I’d like to celebrate our triumphs. Second in the state (the best placement since ‘89), two amazing musicals (West Side Story and Godspell) and learning that every experience is exactly what you make it. For me, this was a great year. And that’s enough.
“Sleep” by Eric Whitacre. This is my choir at the ISSMA state finals on Saturday!
My choir won second in the state!!
What a way to round out senior year. I am so proud of that amazing talented wonderful group of people. :D
SOS IS BOSS!!!!
This is what I’ll miss about choir.
So today my choir class of 70 people played a humongous game of ninja. After 68 sad cries of defeat, it came down to two boys who were in it to win it. Griffin kept hiding his hands behind his back, so Ethan finally just tackled him to the ground. In ninja. In the choir room. Even though he lost, I respect him so much more!!
