Oh wow... I'm just seeing this now! Thank you for caring enough to ask, and I apologize for not sending you a message sooner! The vacation turned out amazing. But he decided to send me back to my home state on a plane alone and called the relationship off on the phone five days later. I learned a lot from it though! Haha smile
Instructing seems like it would be fun. I've only had two bad instructors. Actually, that's kind of bad, since that would be a new instructor for every year I've done it. But yeah, my freshman year we had a volunteer temporary instructor for band camp and the rest of the time we just used a DVD. The next year was a good instructor, but she got a teaching job somewhere far away so that's why we had to get a different instructor for the next season. Last year we had Satan. This year we have a sorta-friend of Satan's who would help us out last year and she's pretty much like a mother to all of us this year. And the only year we had guys on guard was my second year. Both gay guys. One of them was a complete p***k sometimes, but was good at the work (which was relatively easy) and the other is pretty much the most awesome dude in the universe. The first guy graduated and the second guy couldn't do guard anymore because he had to choose Drama over Band due to a leadership position.
