The Not-so-good player?

Hi all - I don't have the time to look at other example posts and see how many words I have to say, but I will keep it simple...

I am that saxophone player gets yelled at by the band teacher for playing a triple altissimo D, deafening half of the band's ears, and outplaying the percussion. Every day. (so I actually don't have an A in band). My notes are so wrong that even the school Jazz band cannot predict my "kazoos". My brain cells are so dead that I cant play better than my 7th grade self in regional scales. My style is so (nauseating) interesting that my parents think any person other than me who plays saxophone played for 27 years. Anyways- I am glad to come here to learn new tricks and tips to further annoy my band teacher.

Me: "We got our band parts today!"
Dad: "Son, what part did you play?"
Me: "All of them..."
Dad: visible confusion

So- in conclusion, am I really just trying to live life to its fullest, and stray from the ultimate life goal of 99.9% of people; to satisfy their wills and try not to change? Or will I regret posting this since it is 2 am.

Sorry, but what is your point?
There's no point, he's a 13 yr old kid. :D
Yeah, you have to spread out the self-loathing over your life as a sax player. You can't blow it all at once.

Self delete.
That's merely an assumption a commenter made. OP didn't say he's 13.
OP says 7th grade. A little quick math would put him/her around 13.
