10 Ways Marching Band Prepared Us for Life


It might seem strange for a woman in her forties to write about marching band but … Well, I won’t lie. It IS kind of strange but I don’t care. This site is called “Eccentric Randomness” for a reason! The catalyst for this happened while I was driving home and it grew from there.
