Poolin day and night 😎🏊♂️🏄♂️💧☀️🌙
Well u guys, if ‘rona wasn’t a thing or if stuff hadn’t gotten weird, I woulda left for camp this morning. Nowwwww I gotta wait 5 more weeks, but hey it’s something to look forward to 😎😁
So here we are. Day...40-something...? I don’t know, point is I’m really missing these clowns right now 🤡🤪🥺
Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. I am announcing my official candidacy for the 2020 band presidential election 😎
This is the best I could find, happy now? Also being told it’s not my birthday by @grayson_with_an_e is outrageous, it’s unfair >:-(
Just a few highlights from 2019. And now for a new decade, let’s get it y’all 😎 love you guys ❤️❤️❤️
Welp, we may not have gotten that finals run, but hey we got 4th after a pretty rainy run so I’ll take it
3 trips down, 1 to go. Hawaii here we come 😎 still not afraid of heights tho 😅😂
I know my birthday was yesterday, but oh my god what a wild ride this past year has been. Ima keep this one short but thank you to everyone who made 16 the best year yet, I can’t wait for everything 17 has to offer, love y’all ❤️
Pretty legendary summer, prolly best one yet. Definitely would qualify as life changing. It all started with the most life changing and prolly best 3 weeks of my life at the greatest place on earth. Thx to all my LITs and leadership staff who made it the best experience of my life. Seriously being able to serve as an LIT was an amazing experience and I’m so thankful I got to go through with the 70 of y’all. Then I came home and chilled for a few weeks, kinda laid low which btw felt amazing. And then started the great marching band grind where I was reunited with all the amazing people I hadn’t seen since school ended. So thx to all my band people who made the 2 weeks of hard work sooooo much fun. It’s gonna be a great season 😎 anyway so yeah pretty awesome summer, can’t wait to see what this school year has in store #doors #lits #withthefrizz #dullcreature #sportsbratan #schmoes #setup
Truth is...I am a fire hazard. Happy birthday sis, congrats on not dying this year. There’s nothing more satisfying than Hollywood game night and le tennis badminton edition. Guys side strong side 😎 All of y’all are my best friends in a world we must defend 😂👍 #steveisafirehazard #grunt #floatindowntheriver #almonds #guysside #strongside #30 #bigsauce
Band camp 2k19: the setup; there’s only one word that can describe this week. Skadoosh
Aight last part. I don’t think I would have made it through the past 3 weeks without my staff so help me along the way. They were always there for me when I had questions or needed help with anything. They really did serve as great mentors to me and guide me through my LIT experience in teaching me about servant leadership. I just wanted to take time to say that @dab_of_branch has had a huge impact on my life. I spent a total of 9 weeks at camp, and he’s been my staff member for 7 of those, ever since he was my head in 12. Ever year I come back and hear that he’s my staff member again I get so happy because i always can’t wait to see how he changes me for the better. Whenever I’m at camp, I feel like he pushes me to be the best I can be and he really truly has been my inspiration for joining the ALA program and wanted to become staff, because for the past 4 years, I’ve always wanted to be like Branch and make that big of an impact on camper’s lives that he’s had on mine. I may never be able to lift 4 trunks on my shoulders, but he’s honestly made me into the person I am today and has honestly been one of the most influential person and a role model I will always look up to. Another person who’s had a huge impact on my ALA experience is @miss .new.judy Shes really taught how much far always having a positive attitude can get you in life. She’s another person who’s always been there to push me to be the best I can be. She’s showed me that working hard will always pay and that no matter what you can always find a positive outcome in any situation. I remember learning things I thought I’d never know. Thank you Branch and Judy, y’all have been the best mentors I could ever ask for.
So part 2. Gotta say session 2 was basically the highlight of my forever. And it all started when I have the privilege and keeping camp high Harbour perfectly balanced as all things should be by Thanos snapping the LITs, session 2 was the week I really felt like I was at my peak because I had a week’s experience under my belt, but I also wasn’t at point when I was totally exhausted. I also felt like I connected with a lotta my campers in a way I never thought I would. When I got off the rafting bus and I had my boys chanting S-T-E-V-E Steve Steve is our LIT, that really made my day and honestly prolly my whole session, then I got down to ballin with @tbeatyofficial @connormitchell_4 and @linkchambers107 when we went in to a 4 on (big # ) and still basically won. When my campers told me they were telling PDs to vote me for week, that really made me feel like they respected me and that I was doing my job as a good LIT, and when Friday rolled around and we won the poooooooon and I got week, that’s definitely hands down the greatest day of my life. 2 days ago, 2 of my WS campers (who shall remain nameless 😏 ) both gave me notes on how good of an LIT I was in their cabin and the impact I had on their camp experience. That was when I realized that I did the one thing I always wanted to do: impact the lives of my campers in the same way that my staff and my LITs impacted me. I remember doing things I thought that I could never do. Thank y’all so much and making my LIT experience as amazing as it was.
12 hours ago, I left a little piece of heaven nestled in the pines. I got a lotta shout outs to make for this one so ima do this is 3 separate posts. Every year I go back to camp, my camp family just keeps getting bigger. I’m the past year, it went from 36 to 70, pretty crazy. Last night I said that the most important thing in life would always be the people in that dining hall. I meant every word of that because we are family. When one of us loses, we all lose, we are warriors and when we fight, we fight together. We got each other’s backs like a family. Camp is about the only place on the planet that can give a sense of family that strong, especially for us. We all made it through the toughest thing camp has to offer, and we did it together. @samnel_03 my cabin ocho bro, we learned the ropes of being an LIT together while tryna handle 23 kids who just wouldn’t shut up 😂 @walterm619 we kicked ass on the guys side of WS and I couldn’t have ask for a better, more hard working dude to go through that with, It’s grind time baby 😎 and to all my leadership session 3 peeps, we took on kp every day, 3 meals a day and we all got through it together, and not one of us could have done it without the rest. Part of why I love camp so much is the relationships I form with people I get so close to throughout the time I spend there. I remember meeting friends I knew that I could never lose. I love y’all so much ❤️
Everyone. After 5 years of playing Mariokart 8, I have all 3 components of the golden car. I 3-stared every Grand Prix in every difficulty, I beat all 48 staff ghosts (32 regular, 16 DLC ) and I collected 9999+ coins. My journey since 2014 has come to end, I have 100%ed Mariokart 8.
So 2018. It was pretty good, i can say I’ve been through a lot and I’m in a very different place from when 2018 started. And that’s alright with me because I’m okay with where I’m at right now. 2018 was a big year, I met a lot of awesome people, got to go to some pretty amazing places, and did some pretty cool things. As always there some bad times but I got my homies to thank for always helping me get outta those bad times. So ig thx to everyone for always being great and making 2018 awesome ✌️😁❤️
So I got a lot to be thankful for. I got my campies, my homies, my band peeps, and most importantly I got my family. I just wanna take this time to thank everyone who’s made my life what it is. My life has had ups and downs, as everyone’s does, but I got so many amazing people who help make my life better. I feel so fortunate to have so many great people in my life and I got a lotta things that a lotta people don’t have and I’m super grateful for that. Of course I’m thankful for my opportunity to go to my home away from home, @camphighharbour , every year. I’m thankful for the privilege to be in the @waltonband because of all my peoplez who make it as much fun as it is 😁 I’m thankful for yellow 8’s and uno cards everywhere. And that’s just a small piece of all the amazing people, great places and awesome things I’m thankful for. Happy Brack Friday everyone! #thanksgiving #turkey #turkeyday #blackfriday #shopping #food #people #places #things #nouns #life #band #camp #family #rehash Btw sorry to anyone I didn’t tag, ran outta people, love you guys ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Sweet home Camp high harbour. Sorry y'all this one's for everyone who I ran outta people to tag in the first one
Hey so apparently I ran outta people to tag so here's another one, but one's p band specific. So this year is p good so far. After bringing the BUS FUN back to BUS ONE, with a little help of course, and bringing the bus heaven to bus seven and of course the bus more to bus four, this year has given me a new appreciation for bus rides and bus drivers (always thank ur bus drivers, kids ) and of course the one thing that can always describe the 2018 Walton band: TOOOOOOOOSDAAAAAAY (just now realizing this post was made on a Tuesday ), and this year kicking off my presidential campaign (planning ahead is always a good thing ) with the hiring of my official campaign manager @theandrewjshaw (speaking of which go follow @stevekasteforbandpresident for updates and stuff ), but yeah this year has been really awesome so far and I'm excited to see how this season ends in the next couple weeks, love u guys 😁❤️😁 also shoutout to my mio man @jbmintz2002 for always giving me the caffeine I need to get through practice 😎👌and only 3 more days until GAMEDAY 😝😝😝
Ik my birthday was yesterday but I'm doing this now bc why not. So 15 wasn't too bad, had some bumps along the way but since when do bumps not happen. 15 wasn't easy, I had a lotta stuff happen in the past year but I got past it all and came out with a bunch of amazing memories. With all my band people, through all the gamedayz, practices, competitions and 5:30 call times, y'all are my family and that's a more than okay with me. And I've finally had to accept the fact that I'm not very good at Uno especially now that we have get fucked +8s and +12s, but at least I'm not as bad as AJ 😂 and this post wouldn't be complete with an honorable mention to my camp family. After 2 weeks of being in the same cabin as y'all, bond I feel with all u guys is one that can't be broken. Ever. I know it's been like 4 months since I've seen u guys but y'all are still my family and that ain't ever gonna change. Thanks to everyone who helped my 15 my best year yet ❤️❤️❤️😁😁😁 #goraiders #marchingband #band #unooo #family #highcouncil #forks #divot #fillthedivot #gameday #bandcamp #spiritstick #hoyminoy #doodlebob #rehash
