So I just watched the bass feature in our Finals performance, and at last the full gravity of the situation hit me:

HOLY FUCKING SHIT WE NAILED THE FEATURE WITH THE DRUMS FACING THE OPPOSITE WAY. HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.

For my last one, my dream necklace is finally complete. 7 seasons of hard work and countless memories with 3 families, all put together into one necklace. From a kid from Garfield drumming in a cafeteria, to a 6 year drum corps vet, Class A Champion, 5-time Finalist, and WGI Independent World Finalist, and recipient of Best Showmanship.

Had to make a separate post for this one. I got to see Grayson before retreat, ad I couldn&#8217;t have been prouder of her, making it through her first year. I know it had it&#8217;s challenges, but seeing you with me on that field Sunday was special. No matter what, I&#8217;m rooting for ya 100%.

Love you girl, and I am SO proud of you. 💜💜💜

So many friends!! 💜 This has been the best part of growing up in drum corps: going from an unsocial 16 year old, to one of the most social guys in DCA.

1) DANIELLE!! 💜 One of my favorite ladies from the purple team. So glad I got to see her and that she got to be on the field with me at Finals retreat. I was so so SO happy that Alliance made Finals. sassycymbrass

2) MIKE!!! From rocking the racks for AQ and United, to tearing it up in DCA. Love this dude and can’t wait to see him again! phoenixneverdies

3) It’s cool guys, I got to see David again. Glad he came to do a little DCA! paranoid-android92

4) You can’t see the selfie king and not get a selfie. Was awesome to see Lane again! splantamello

5) Adam, Onye, Armon, and Kelsey in a mass selfie. Totally awesome seeing Adam and Onye working with Alliance, and then just as sweet to have gotten to see two of my faves from C2. :) onyeplaysdrums thesteltenpole dut-dut-goose justkeepspinninthrulife

6) Kelsey and I, looking totally precious. Truly thankful for such a great and caring friend. ❤️ justkeepspinninthrulife

7) Deondre and Kait! Totally glad I got to see these two. :) glad we got to get another killer selfie. k-liz-luvs-velociraptors

8) it’d be my luck that I ran into Amanda on the way to retreat. Sweet that we finally met! (Fun fact: I saw you at the hotel but didn’t say anything though I totally should’ve.) seemyseoul

9) Me and Rebecca! Glad I finally got her to march. Carrying in your parents’ footsteps… itsmebecky14

10) Izzy and I. I LOVED watching her perform. Such a passionate person, and one I am totally glad to have met and marched with. painfueledpassion

The best goofballs I’ve ever had the honor to march in a bassline with. 💜💜💜💜💜
