Field Captain Song

I totally just made this up off the top of my head and need to get it down somewhere so I may expand/ take criticism/ suggestions.

How do you march?

How do you march?

How do you march?

I’m going to teach you how to march.

I’m going to teach you how to march.

Whether your knees go high or low,

I’ll prepare you for the show;

With a Dut, Dut, DUT DUT DUT DUT,

I’ll get you off your lazy butt.

With a one, two, one two three four,

You’ll be set for many more;

Now Music, my friend: That’s not my job,

You’d better memorize it or the DMs will sob.

Whether your knees go high or low,

I’ll prepare you for the show;

With a Dut, Dut, DUT DUT DUT DUT,

I’ll get you off your lazy butt.

With a tantrum here and a dot argument there,

Marching will take you anywhere;

Work your butt off and don’t delay,

I’ll be watching your feet everyday.

Whether your knees go high or low,

I’ll prepare you for the show;

With a Dut, Dut, DUT DUT DUT DUT,

I’ll get you off your lazy butt.

With a left, right, left, right, left

I’ll be sure you’re the best;

Wherever we march and fight,

You’ll always be the one who’s right.

Whether your knees go high or low,

I’ll prepare you for the show;

With a Dut, Dut, DUT DUT DUT DUT,

I’ll get you off your lazy butt.

With a BAND-TEN-HUT,

You’ll cheer for yourselves from your gut;

And with that final PARADE-REST,

I know that I’ve taught you to be the best.

Thoughts continued:

Part of me wants to have some random stranger or otherwise come and make everything better, part of me wants to justify my reason for just randomly putting my feelings on the internet, and part of me just feels completely ignored and distressed.

Basically I feel useless and I learned today that others believe so too and there seems to be no amount of “oh you’re important and useful” that can make me feel otherwise. Idk, it’s just a stupid brain thing I guess, Ik I do things that are useful and important, but I feel like it’s not enough or it’s just kinda taken as granted and not really looked at as important, causing my view of self-importance and utility to decline to the levels it is today.

Also I am sad that I did not get into jazz band, but that’s on a somewhat different note because I clearly fucked up really badly at the tryouts and I feel like that if I cannot be in either top band (one because of scheduling and the other because I clearly suck like a vacuum) I might as well just not be in band because I like to think of myself as a hard worker, but apparently I don’t work like the people in those top bands and apparently hardly practice and am therefore incapable of playing harder and better music.

Some thoughts for the day

Recently I learned and have been thinking about how women are built to remember more details and are actually better at understanding people.

I also learned that men do not usually send out invitations into their lives (in any way) but love having invites sent out to them.

So dudes, ladies, and other: I think if you ever need to have emotional or otherwise help with a situation, talk to your best female friend, or any lady in that case. (or yes, if you think they like you >_> but that’s not what his is about)

But back to my thoughts, I feel like I cannot be the best of what I know I should be if I cannot understand people like ladies usually are able to, or I can’t remember as much detail as they do, sure I biologically have better special reasoning and reflexes and personally am overly aggressive, but that’s not gonna help me in this real world, it may have helped thousands of years ago, but not now. Sure, these skills are useful in some situations, but honestly I would rather have the other gender’s skill set since I am constantly stuck in a position where I have to work with people- of course cooperation is what humans are made to do, but I’m thinking something went wrong and I’m missing an invitation or something such as being able to remember details or understand how people feel much better, because frankly, I am insensitive.
