So I know the season is over but I didn't feel quite complete without a last blog. As I sit here alone in front of my computer screen, I reflect on my last incredible 2006 season with the Blue Devils. It's hard to describe the feeling finals night. One word: surreal. The entire day I was on the verge of tears. Even at practice...where I eventually did cry at the end of our run through. Warm up was really hard. I cried multiple time-after humming F tuning for the last time-which went into the first part of visual warm up. Then after my last space chords. And after our segment of the show. John brought us in to chat and I lost it when he started to get teary eyed. Call me a baby but I loved the Blue Devils with every ounce of me. It was my one passion and dream I had. I worked hard and achieved it. There were endless amounts of ups and downs through the last 3 summers that kept me spinning but nothing brought me back down like performing. A rush and connection I can't ever replace. Finals night was the peak of all performances, all emotions, all of myself. Everything I had worked for was put out on that field the night of the 12th. I held nothing back, played and marched perfectly and put more emotion into it than I knew I had. Scoring doesn't matter one bit because we all knew in our hearts that we were champions. That show was absolutely amazing and we performed the you know what out of it. Can't wait to see the dvd. Thank you to everyone who rooted for me finals night. And thank you for taking time to read my blogs. I've enjoyed sharing my last Blue Devil experience with you all.
