Day 200!

Woensdag, 22 Februari 2012

Wow, 200 days!  Got up, ate a bit, and then Sharon (a girl in my section), her boyfriend (a bass player, playing in the Scouts in the US this summer) and I went to get breakfast.  Around 11 we ended up at the rehearsal site.  Watched some ensembles practice, did some stuff, got lunch, and then from 2-430 we had a cymbal sectional.  Then we worked on our feature with the electronics until 5 or so, got dinner, and then from 630-1030 was working with the sound guys for the show.  Had to set some things, and check it out, so it was a real stop and go kind of night.

Then, from 1030-1(am) was a cymbal sectional.  We got some crazy stuff in our solos, and we tried some crazy stuff too.  I learned the hard way that I cannot do a handstand and that being dropped on your head on a hard floor is painful.  Also, that wearing cymbal gloves is not only good for you cymbals, but also your hands.  I think this is the first time my hands have started bleeding because of drumline (even when I messed up before, it'd either just bruise or like, make the finger unable to bend for 8 months).  But it's totally worth it.

But not it's like 2am, just reviewed some videos, and now I should get to sleep.  Slaapwel!
