My 7th Grade Band Director Made Me Cry

My 7th Grade Band Director Made Me Cry

My 7th grade band director made me cry.

In 7th grade, I was the fat kid that quit football on the first day because I didn't’ want to run sprints. I didn’t fit in, I didn’t wear the right clothes or have the right friends, and I couldn’t even decide what instrument to play in the band.

One day my director made me cry because I couldn’t play the drums right, and I was mortified that everybody was seeing that I had no idea what i was doing.
