Anonymous asked: I really want to talk to my directors about maybe having a group for next year's WGI winds competition but how do I talk to them about it?

"i want to put together a group for the next wgi winds competition"

find a few key group members before asking them for their support. be ready to explain what wgi winds is,& how much competing would cost time&energy&money-wise

good luck!

Anonymous asked: To the anon whose director quite. We went through multiple director changes before I graduated and it's hard, and you do feel betrayed, but eventually there will be the director who stays and loves your band and you will see so much progress that year it will amaze you. I'm sorry about your other director, but sometimes it's for the best. Good luck.

👌

Anonymous asked: our band director told us today that he's leaving at the end of the school year. he quit on us. it's been a really tough year and everyone has been struggling and he quit on us. he says its not personal but that's crap, we all know he hated it with us, especially this year cause our seniors are shit. idk i just feel really hurt and needed to tell someone.

im sorry dude but sometimes people gotta be selfish in order to be happy

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

my fave part of guard is when someone can’t put enough force into a toss and you tell them to imagine it’s their ex and suddenly it has the power of all of their post-breakup rage behind it and is 5x stronger and higher

“If your destination, or the steps you are going to take in the future, take up so much of your attention that they become more important to you than the step you are taking now, then you completely miss the journey’s inner purpose, which has nothing to do with where you are going or what you are doing, but everything to do with how. It has nothing to do with future but everything to do with the quality of your consciousness at this moment.” — Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)
