I love and miss everything about it. Well, almost everything. I could do without the long uncomfortable bus rides, lol. I could do without that Texas heat too.
It’s hard to appreciate the whole experience until it’s all over. A tour with a world class corps is no joke. Two months takes a big toll on your body physically and mentally, but that’s what drum corps is about I guess. If you’re really in love with the activity, you learn to push yourself beyond your limits, even at your worst. I gotta hand it to the B corps for preparing me for all that. There’s no way I would’ve ever been ready to march with the A team without BDB. This sounds like a really generic answer to me, lol. I’m assuming you want specifics.
I feel like I could make a never ending list of the things I liked about my time with Devs, so what I’ll do is talk about what I would’ve changed to make my experience better than it was.
I wish I had been more social during the three years that I marched drum corps. I’ve always been an extremely shy person around unfamiliar faces, awkward honestly, but I’ve gotten over that in recent years. Ask any of my good friends and I bet they would agree. Anyway, I just wish I had gotten over that shyness while I was still marching. You meet a lot of great people in drum corps, but because everyone isn’t from one area (especially in the A corps), it’s important that you make friends during the season because once it’s all over, you may rarely/never see those people again. It’s hard to connect with them at that point. I think what bums me out the most is that some people that I marched with only know me as that awkward ass guy that was in the snare line. I have so much more to offer as a person, but a lot of them will never know that because I was just too scared to put myself out there at the time.
So if there’s anything you could learn from my experience, it’s to be social and HAVE FUN! It doesn’t need to be about the competition 100% of the time. Make new friends! You don’t need to be friends with every single person in the corps, but make sure that you branch out from your section. Like I said, there are a lot of cool people that you can meet in drum corps because of how diverse the activity is. You have people from all over the country and even the world coming together with a lot of the same interests.
did anyone else have that fad in their middle school where people would lick elbows and see if the person being licked noticed and they usually never did that was fucked up
