Band Geek, Music Freak

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!

Leadership 2: The Not-So-Happy Sequel

April 6 at 10:11pm

I'll just go ahead and say this: I have a really bad characteristic, in that I am super passive-aggressive about a lot of things. For instance, tonight, I lost the election for the position of president in the fraternity that I'm in, Kappa Kappa Psi. However, I was elected to the vice-president of membership position, which happens to be the position that the new president had last year.

Because I'm upset about losing the election for president, I've already decided to overhaul our membership recruitment and education program that he used last year. I was pretty dead-set on being president, but if I can't have that, then I will do what I want in whatever position I have. Basically, everything that he did last year, I'm going to ignore and do things the way I want.

Also, I've decided that, after this year, I'm not going to run for an officer position in this fraternity again. There are very few things that could make me change my mind. In fact, I can list them right now:
-If this new president does a terrible job with organization and delegation of jobs this year, I will consider running for president.
-Very unlikely, but if I really enjoy being the VPM, then I will run for it again. This will largely depend on the people that join the fraternity next year.
-If the people running for VPM next year concern me, as in their work ethic or if they seem like they aren't dedicated enough for the position.

Basically, I'm finished with the crap that comes with being an officer. I understand that having to deal with crap comes with the position, but I'm tired of it. There was too much drama this year, and I really just want to serve the bands. That's our purpose, and as a chapter, we have strayed from it. I took an oath to serve the bands, as did all of my brothers, but we have gotten caught up in the politics of band, and I want to get us back on track.

I'm going to stop there. But to sum this all up, I'm passive-aggressive, and it is painful.

I'm very thankful for Route 50. It's become my place of retreat from the pains and annoyances of offline life. But more than that, you all are some very awesome people. Even though I don't regularly talk to a lot of you anymore, it's great to know that there are people who at least glance at my complaints about life.

Stay awesome, my friends. :)

So many times I want to post things about what's going on, but I don't because it sounds egotistical or whiny. I need normal things to post about.

Here's an attempt: I like pumpkin pie. I think I'm doing this right.

9 pages of single-spaced, 8-point font to read and a quiz to make over those pages for an assignment due tomorrow. Wonderful.

The fact that I get emails from professors at all hours of the night is reassuring to me. It is ok to stay up late, as long as you are getting things done.

Once upon a time, I played trombone in my university's orchestra. I wasn't the best, but man.

It was so much fun to play an instrument that requires that much movement.

You know how you can meet someone that you hardly know, and you are able to talk to them without feeling apprehensive about what you say? I love meeting people like that, because those are the people that I have the best conversations with.

I'm not talking about your best friend. I'm talking about the stage before you become friends, where you are still trying to figure out who this person is. Sometimes, you may talk about common interests or views on current events, but that's not what I'm t

I just teared up from reading an article on Buzzfeed. People really have to capacity to be amazing, if they just put other people first.

I'm sure that it will be used in some sort of group psychology research paper soon.

Social interaction over electronic media can be terrifying for me. Especially after midnight, for some reason.

It's 3 in the morning. I just spent about 2-3 minutes watching ice that I dumped in the sink melt by running water over it.

So yeah, my Christmas break has been going well.

I love it when people give me thank you cards for doing small things. I've gotten three this year, and it makes me realize how important it is to recognize when people do good things, even if they expect nothing in return.

I'm going to start giving thank you cards to people. I want others to know that I appreciate what they do for me.

Max posted "I am a Brother" to his journal.

I really love the fraternity that I'm in, which is Kappa Kappa Psi. It isn't a social fraternity, which is what most people think of when they think of fraternities. My fraternity is an honorary fraternity, so it is an honor and a privilege to be a member of it. We often call ourselves a service fraternity, because we serve the bands, but technically, we are an honorary fraternity.

Like I said before, I love it. I get to serve the bands of Kansas State University, and I get to be surrounded b
