The start of a long week fueled only by sweet tea and skittles...

I just got home from the talent show and even though I didn't win a trophy, I'm happy with how I did. Everyone in it was so talented I'm ecstatic that I even made it past auditions! Just in case I never said this before, I did the song Secrets by OneRepublic, both singing and playing the piano. It was difficult to coordinate but I figured it out and I'm glad to say I got this done.
I've probably mentioned this before, but ever since chorus when I was in the sixth grade, I always shake uncontrolably when I sing alone infront of a group of people. Miraculously, tonight my voice was only slighty trembling at the start of the song but it eventually went away entirely! So even thought I didn't win anything, I can say that tonight was productive because 1) I finally broke the shaking problem and 2) It was fun!

The talent show tonight was stressfull by itself, but that's not even the beginning of how insanely busy my week was and is going to be. Last night I worked the lights for the junior division talent show and that was incredibly hectic because I know basically nothing about tech. By the time I got home yesterday, I had been screamed at by stage moms, told what to do by people who had no business telling me what to do, and I got "the look" from my chorus teacher that made me want to crawl into a corner and evaporate.
So if you're ever in any kind of show, please be nice to the tech people. They're dealing with enough insanity to last them a lifetime.

Tommorrow is the only day I get off (and by get off I mean I'll be home before six). The music club I'm in is doing a haunted trail to raise money for various things and I am uber excited. (Yes, Uber.) I'll have pictures here at some point because our decorations and blood covered trees (and blood covered everything else) look fantastic and perfectly frightening. We're putting the finishing touches on it tomorrow and then on Thursday, it starts! Then for three days straight I get to scream and growl and scare people....for seven hours each day....it's a good thing the talent show is done because my throat is going to be raw.

So I have to go get the last bits of sleep I'm probably going to be getting all week. Bye!
