Reflection on 7th Grade

Another year gone; another year passed. Seventh grade is almost over. I’m afraid that this will be my last blog post of the year. I’ve decided to do the last blog post on my reflection of 7th grade.

One of my favorite moments was All Region. Although it was scary having to play in front of everybody; the outcomes were great! We had three first chairs from Symphony that was from West Ridge (including me).  I was really pleased with my chair and I was proud of myself. This year’s All Region summarized in two words would be scary, yet fun at the same time.

Another one of my favorite highlights of 7th grade was Six Flags. It was so much fun getting to go to Six Flags. From waking up at 4:00 in the morning to getting home at 8:00. Before we went to Six Flags, the Sinfonia Orchestra went to a competition where we won three trophies! After that, we drove to Six Flags where we got to wait in lines for hours. Overall, Six Flags was pretty fun! I got to ride on exhilarating rides, and I got to hang out with my friends.

As this year draws to an end, so will my seventh grade memories (and also this blog post). Seventh grade was filled with spectacular things like Region, Six Flags, and many others too! Next year, I will definitely miss my seventh grade year!

This Saturday I must go to Lamar Middle School for Region. It’s where you play 3 excerpts in front of 58 other middle school students. There will be a curtain or something to block the judges from seeing you. The judges will judge you from your 3 excerpts that you will play. After you play you will wait for 3 hours for everyone else to be done. Later on your seat order will be arranged and it will be split into 2 orchestras, Symphony and Philharmonic. I’m hoping to get into Symphony! Symphony is higher than Philharmonic. I’m really nervous for All Region. So… wish me luck! (Btw I play the cello.)

Have you had to do something that made you nervous? If so, what was it?
