Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
That's awesome, Stryke! Glad to hear it! :DAbout a year ago I was in eighth grade and kinda half-a**ed my way through most of the stuff I did in school: I procrastinated a lot, I wasn't in any non band related clubs (aside from the Book Club but we had like 4 or 5 members and hardly ever met so it barely counts), and I just had almost zero initiative with anything school related; I was pretty much a classic underachiever, and it didn't get me too far. Now, though, a year later, my life has taken a U-turn; I try to put some effort into my schoolwork and I always have some new plan to go above and beyond, from planning out a school wide Super Smash Bros tournament with my friend, or organizing a Lego Robot battle Royale across all the classes of my computer class. Anyway, TL;DR is, somehow (I have no idea how), I've turned from an underachiever to almost an overachiever, and it's given me a really positive outlook! :D
(Also, unrelated, but does anyone think this thread and the Grr thread are getting a little too long? Both of them are around 200 pages, and it always takes an absurd amount of time to load them whenever I go to them, so maybe it'd be worthwhile to lock them and start new ones again?)
I MADE IT IN!!!!! I can finally stop stressing about making it in and start being excited about what it'll be like!!I'm trying out for my high schools most advanced band tomorrow. However, my band director seems to think I'd be better suited towards the second most advanced band, which would normally be fine, except that if he puts me there, I will have to transfer from the morning session of a STEM program I attend for half the day to the afternoon session, which means leaving all of my very good friends in the morning session, which I have a VERY strong aversion towards doing. So, theres a lot riding on this audition, which means I've got to really work my a** off to make my audition the best it can be... But I'm not sure if my best will be good enough, which has got me very nervous.
Oh, and as a final cherry on top, my main competition is a sophomore, and I'm a freshman, and there's likely only going to be one spot available. So if we both do equally good, it will very likely come down to seniority, which means curtains for me. So, not fun.
