Today, was chair placements and I got last chair. The girl who beat me never practiced or even played. Last time she cried through her playing test. My friend is a Sophomore and got 1st chair and my other friend got 4th. I just find it hard that even when I try they still beat me without trying or practicing. :|

I am sorry for you.

You may like to try and see it this way: now that you sit rock bottom, it can only get better.

Seriously, ask the person who decides on the chairs what specific points you could work on to have a better chance of getting a higher chair next time.

Sorry about the bad results for you.

Sometimes people just have more raw talent than you. My nef practices his baseball like a fiend, probably the baseball equivalent of Sir James Galway's flute practicing. Yet there's other young men on the team better than him, because he has few athletic genes from either parent's families, while those others do.

I know it's hard, but try to be happy for your friends. And don't allow being placed in last chair to define your flute playing, or your worth. Only YOU can define your self-worth, not your teacher or your friends or a chair.
