I have had the best last few days.
Thursday night was my choir concert. We were called to show up way earlier than we needed to be there (four-o-clock call and the concert was at seven-thirty), but I was able to get to know the people in my show choir a lot better. Justin said I look like Doris Day, so that’s what he calls me now. =]
The all-girl show choir went before the senior show choir, the one that I’m in. My group was hanging backstage manically dancing to the other group’s music. Oh, it was so much fun! Even though I’m in show choir, I’m not one to just… dance. But back stage, everyone just let loose and I think I might have actually been doing it right.
I will admit, I made more mistakes this concert than usual, but it was still fun.
I had some great people come see me, so that was pretty much amazing. A lot of alumni choir friends came to the concert, too, and that was really great to see them.
Friday night, I had dinner with my family and my sister’s boyfriend. That was pretty cool because I was able to geektalk with my nerdy dad and sister.
After that was my show choir’s Christmas party. My hair was great and I had a great outfit. ;] Near the end of things, we went caroling. When we approached a house and rang the doorbell, everyone had a great idea to Continue reading
Last night was my high school’s first choir concert of the year! It was also my frst performance with show choir. As nervous as I was, I rocked the concert! Oh, it was so much fun! I performed two songs with my show choir, one with a select ensemble, one with the women’s ensemble, and four with the whole of Chorale.
The ending piece was a medly of songs from the Lion King. One of my few complaints with that one is that no body had any energy. That morning, we were told to be moving around a little and smiling. I mean it’s Lion King for goodness sake! Anyway, I told my dad about that at the afterglow.
“Well, I saw several people moving; most of them were in the back row.”
“Yeah! Because we’re tall! There’s more of us! Maximum capacity for awesome!”
I had a bigger group of people that came and saw me than ever before to any of my performances ever.
And today, I actually kind of understood my chemistry class. And I got a lot done in AP English. I’m writing an essay on The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly reccomend it. Anyway, while we were in the computer lab, I recieved a carnation-gram for sweetest day!! ME. I’ve never recieved a flower from anyone in my school! 😀 ……Okay, so it was from one of my good friends, but nevertheless, it made my day! Besides, she’s kind of one of those people where I’m surprised that she chose to pay to have a flower sent to me of all people, me of all her other friends. (Yes, I know that sentence could have been executed much better, but I couldn’t figure out a better way to phrase it. I’m saving all my powers of perfect sentence structure for my essay)
Thing to smile about #16: FINALLY getting the time, chance, and reason to write a real post again!
