Anyway. South San Francisco. I arrive at 6:45 am and it was super foggy and misting rain, my favorite weather (sarcasm). About 15 minutes later the janitor let me in to the multi purpose room (which was huge) and left. So I began setting up, I had gotten all my screens set and everything else in place when I got ready to hit the panic button because I had no one to help put the screens up. Instead I said "hey brain, we're not going to do that, instead I'm gonna go follow the sound of the middle school band practice and borrow kids" So that is exactly what I did. I walked over and got two boys to help get my screens up, and they were awesome! Seriously. Had the screens up in like 5 minutes. I finished setting everything else up and had about 25 minutes to spare.
While the students were coming in I had numerous teachers give me genuine hand shakes and thank yous. In particular the guidance counselor was just so happy I was there, and gave me an extended hand shake (a little awkward but he had a good heart). It was so crazy to have these teachers so excited about our program. But it was awesome. I started the show and this was BY FAR the loudest group as of yet. But good loud. They really enjoyed the video, they were loud when they should be and quiet when they should be. Its days like this that really make me think what we're doing matters.
Today is saturday. I woke up at 5:45 to bring Zac to the airport so he could fly to Texas. Then I got back to the condo and slept a bit more. Then I went to get 2 new tires for the van and now I'm at panera killing some time before I go pick up mike from LAX from texas. Hah. Oh well, all in all still a good day.
