Technical Difficulties...

Yesterday, I had the chance to go to a band competition at Met Life Stadium. (Or, as I call it, Practically New York.) Despite tying for state champions, we got last place. We got our highest score ever, so I would be okay with it, but it feels like we lost for two reasons.
Firstly, the speaker guy (we have vocals) forgot to check if the speaker was charged. Guess what? It wasn't.
The other reason is 100% me. To get to Met Life on time - our performance time was 8:43 AM - everyone in the band had to be at school at 4:30. My brain doesn't work at 3:30 in the morning, which is when I got up. I for got to take my medication, which messed me up for the whole day. I couldn't concentrate as well and messed up some key parts of the show.
We did get a 91, which I am proud of as breaking a 90 has never happened in my 3 years of marching band, but I am still upset as I know us losing is partially my fault.

  • Id agree with below. Celebtrate what went right. Learn from what went wrong and plan better next time. No one's brain works at 3am!
