that I was there during sixth period so that I could help people with their work. yes, everyone was there. did most people actually practice or ask for help? no. there were only 2 people who had their equipment out. did these people who had their equipment out actually try to commit to the checkpoints and counts? no. did these people move their feet? no. did these people go from set to set with good flow? no. did the people even have the idea that sixth period would have been a good opportunity to get help? I don’t think so.
did the person who missed the previous practice ask people to teach her the new work? no. but she was there, enjoying the social opportunities in the band room. how great. *sarcasm*
and when we all arrived at practice today, did people know what the hell they were doing? HA. no.
the point of this post: people need to stop being freaking stupid. get off your lazy butts.
i understand that Mondays are hard days to withstand. some people have just come back from a long weekend, sone people now actually have to work after a weekend of sleeping in and sleeping late, some people probably only started their homework at 9pm the night before, blahblahblahhhhhshutup. unless something extremely tragic happened since the previous Friday, I don’t really care about how a Monday would be any different from any other weekdays. the only real difference is the way people think about the monday, and how laziness affects performance. but you know what? if you know you’re going to do a crappy job on a certain day because you feel weak or lazy or whatever it is that you feel, then WORK 100 TIMES AS HARD so you can accomplish what you need to. because it is not fair for the people who actually feel like trying that any certain number of people will decide to give up just because of what day of the week it is.
when I get something lower than, like, a 97%-ish on a math test, I freak out. sometimes, based on the easiness of the test, I’ll be mad if I get a 99%. that’s just how I am, hun. I aim for perfection. especially when it isn’t hard to achieve 100%. deal with it.
