Don't hold grudges, because then you won't be able to use your hands for anything else.

Well hello there! I'm Max, one of the Executives here at Route 50. I also happen to be the youngest of us, but that's just a random fact. :D

I have been a member of Route 50 for over 5 years now, as you can see up above. When I first joined, I was very into the role-plays here, but have since receded into lurking, monitoring and helping when I can.

I am currently attending Kansas State University, majoring in Music Education, with an emphasis in instrumental music. Basically, I'll be a band teacher. That is, if I don't make it in a rock band with one of my best friends. :D

I guess I'll wrap this up now. A few quick facts to leave you with: I love The Beatles and Muse and Rush. I can play at least 8 different instruments, but not at the same time. I am addicted to Dr. Pepper. :D #dotdotD

Well, that was fun.

Fex's Beatles


Left to right, it's Paul, Ringo, John, and George.

These used to be in my sig, but with the restricted length, they were put here. Thanks for making these, Fexible!

You could say that I am majoring in band. I am a member of six ensembles at my school that fall under the band department, and I enjoy being in all of them. One of these bands is the marching band, which we were awarded the Sudler Trophy this year.

This is just short and sweet, but I was awarded the Bandsman of the Year award, which goes to the member of the band that exhibits qualities of leadership, pride, and good work ethic within the band, as well as having been a member of the band for at least 3 years. There is also a Bandswoman of the Year award, which is the exact same award, but goes to a female. I have regarded these awards as the highest honor to receive at the band banquet each year, and to have been awarded this, it was a huge honor for me. What made it even better, was that one of my best friends won the Bandswoman of the Year alongside me, and it's just wonderful. :) Both of us have worked very hard to push our respective sections to new heights, and while we weren't asking to be recognized, it was nice to receive the award.

Also, my section received the Marching Pride award, which goes to the hardest working sections in the band. My section (the baritones) received it along with the trombones.

While it's nice to receive awards, that's not what being in band is about for me. These are just mementoes to remind me of the experiences I have had and the people that I shared these experiences with. For me, being in band is about being surrounded by hard-working people who have a passion for music and delivering outstanding performances. Some of my closest friends are people that I have met while being in this marching band, and I wouldn't trade them for anything or anyone.

I love band.

Yesterday, I walked into the music building carrying my euphonium and ukulele. I was primed for a great musician joke. BUT NO ONE SAW ME CARRYING THEM.

The joke was that someone would comment on the instruments I'm carrying, and then I say, "I'm a very selfless musician. I only play instruments that are about you."

I'm starting to compose a piece for flute, clarinet, violin, piano, and fixed media, and I'm really excited about it! The fixed media will be a digital track of various insect sounds, of which there is a very wide variety. This is bringing together my work in an entomology lab and my music major. SO PUMPED AH
