>The eternal band geek

>I’m such a band geek.

I played flute in school, and I LIVED. FOR. BAND. Seriously. Marching band, jazz band, symphonic band, orchestra, pep band, etc. I did it all, and I loved it. For a long time I actually planned on making music my career. In college I played with the Indianapolis Symphonic Band, but once I got engaged to Matt, my music interested waned. Now my flute sits in the closet in my craft room, and only gets played once or twice a year. I’m saddened when I think about all those years I spent practicing, learning, playing…only to have my talent put on a shelf now. I still get out my flute and play now and again, and I always promise that I’m going to pick it up again. Play at church. Join a community band. I have yet to do any of this though…Right now my band days are buried deep in my past.

Although I no longer play, my band geek-dom can’t help but rear its pimply head from time to time! Now and again I jump into stories that begin, “This one time at band camp…”, and I still enjoy and appreciate great music. Yesterday, I was reminded again of my geeky past when I couldn’t resist these at my local Staples store:

I apologize for the blurry picture, but I think you can still make out what the picture is of…

That’s right folks – I bought treble clef paper clips! I love them, and I don’t care what you think. These little babies make my band geek/office supply-loving heart go pitter-pat. šŸ™‚

Geeky as I may be, I still do love music, and I will ALWAYS. BE. A. BAND. GEEK.
