It was my sophomore year. The weather was partially cloudy and felt just right. It was not too hot nor too cold, and it’s also football season. A season everyone at school gets hyped up for, even if our football team wasn 't the best in the district. The marching band is getting ready to perform our field show for maybe the second time. Of course, band members including me stay after school just to hang out and prepare ourselves to perform.
