My advice is:

Lose your spot - Keep internally focused on the beat of the song and be aware of where the "1" is. If you get lost, it's okay to take a moment and come back in cleanly on the one, resuming the ride rhythm.

Ending - don't try to "go crazy." A clean flourishing roll into a crash, played with exciting and appropriate dynamics could very well be all that you need. If you're worried about what to do there, definitely don't try to do a lot lest you overthink it.

Stick drop - keep your stickbag in a comfortable position, such as tied against the floor tom. Make sure the sticks easiest to grab from there are the same size as the ones you're using.

Break a leg!

But my band director always says my ending is "too short", "lacking in energy, "to go crazy", and "suspending the cymbals isn't enough." What should I do from there?
