Veteran tip for band camp/school:Prioritize! The Fall can get hectic at times when it comes to balancing Band and Academics. What I like to do is put my school-work/commitments in an ordered list, and knock them out one-by-one. This helps me not feel as overwhelmed by everything and it is
a rewarding feeling when I get to the end of the list.
What are you doing this summer?
I will be rolling burritos part-time at Chipotle as well as taking on a full-time internship at Alcatel-Lucent where my main focus will be RF testing. For fun, I will be taking many trips down the shore and plan to see an Imagine Dragons concert.
You can only eat one food for the rest of your life- what would it be?
Provided there are no poor effects on my health, I would have to go with Hostess CupCakes.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
The first thing I would do is purchase a new car. I have not yet owned my own car, and have found it very inconvenient either borrowing my parents’ or asking for rides. It doesn’t have to be a Lamborghini, it just has to get me from point A to point B. After that, I would buy myself a new Trumpet. Lastly, the remaining funds would be put into savings and used to pay off my education.
Crayon color: It’s a tie between Atomic Tangerine and Neon Carrot
