It's not a performance, so to say. It's more of a "hey look what I can do" thing for the parents.

It's actually better not to practice on the day of a performance. Warming up a couple of hours beforehand is fine, but actually practicing pieces/parts right before the performance can panic/nerve-wrack you easier. That's what I find when Saxophoning, anyways.

I remember when I was in band in middle school, I practiced immediately before the Spring Concert, and I agree with the poster above, it can give you the chills right before the actual performance. So at that time I was so nervous. xD

I played the flute btw. Easiest instrument ever imo xD

I feel bad because I didn't really participate in things like that. .__. I was more into things like leadership, student government, things of that nature. Not really much of a sports/band person, if anything. Last time I actually took part in any kind of sport was middle school, and that was soccer.

..I still kinda miss soccer, and I really look forward to playing things like Tennis soon, hopefully. I'm just really interested in it for some reason...

Maybe that's why we sucked the day we went practicing before the night performance x]

Idk I've always practiced, it calms me down because it lets me know that I know what I'm doing and can do it without much effort, so I don't have to be as nervous.

Even in other activities, say tests or sporting matches, I would make a point of not practicing to heavily. I would mostly just mentally prepare and warm up.

Hi guys! I hope you don't mind if I change the subject here. :3

Ever since working at a popular theme park, I've met some pretty colorful people. And I say "colorful" as a word for meeting alllll the different kinds of wonderful tourists. Now it just so happens that I meet British tourists the most, and that's awesome! Because I love British accents, and I find it funny because most of them(at least the ones that I've met so far) sound so unbelievably posh that I can't help but giggle to myself a bit @_@

Let's just say that I have to make some sort of note to myself to travel to other countries at some point in my life because I hate seeing the world just based on silly stereotypes. ;O;

I mean really, Australians don't say crikey? ._. /shot

I dunno, I just find British accents to be awesome-sounding, yknow? @_@; Though to be honest, I've yet to hear an actual Australian one(as in, me talking to an Australian), as of yet, I'm kinda excited for when that happens, tbh. xD

No, we never say crikey Derk. :(

Well, I've been a victim of being "sexually confused" with regards to others confusing my gender. And I think my signatures on PC are hurting more than helping with regards to clearing up that confusion xD

Sad to say I have no studly qualities personally. Nor do I have a cool accent.

Of course. xD
I wouldn't say I'm studly really... Some people might say otherwise though xD rofl
I do have a Canadian accent. Does that count for anything?

Funnily enough the only Irish and Scottish kids in band are complete assfaces to everyone. /offtopic

I have very low self esteem so I would say I'm not really picture-perfect, though my hair looks like a studly Asian guy sometimes. But otherwise, until I get my teeth fixed I'm not comfortable looking at myself.

Stuff.


PS btw I have a Californian accent c; does that count as anything?

I'm definitely British, but people have said my accent is all over the place. I'm not sure what to make of it... if you look in one of the various accent threads, you'll probably be able to find something, to see for yourself.

I have a deep voice, and thanks to my minor skills in tone manipulation (Don't laugh... I used to sing in the church choir and I developed this ability because of it.) I can do a near perfect emulation of the 'most interesting person' commercial.

The tone manipulation was a minor annoyance though. It took me a while to get this under control, but for a few years (Once I actually realized this, never noticed until someone pointed it out to me) but I actually had a (Slightly) different voice for every person I talked to.

Anyway, am I the only one here who lies in bed reading something, falls asleep, wakes up and immediately starts reading right where I left off? (Because I didn't know I fell asleep?)

This totally happens to me especially when I was trying to memorize a history chapter in high school.

This is totally me. God, some books are impossible to put down.

Everyone, read "The Thin Executioner" by Darren Shan. You'll be glad you did.

I guess I have a Missourian accent, but I'm not sure what that is, we all have some sort of accent though. I just don't notice mine. I don't really like my voice, ist nasally and inbetween high and low, but more high than anything.

Anyway, I don't think I've fallen asleep reading, except maybe in school.

I guess, by logic, I have a New York accent. But I don't know what a NY accent would sound like. I'll be posting a video up soon, hopefully, I'll let you guys judge then. Not here. On a blog. As soon as I become a PC Supporter :3

Lol school. That's one giant bedroom, for me.

I like to think I have an American accent but when I speak online people always ask me if I'm Chinese or Japanese based off the way I speak... I am 3/4 Japanese, but I doubt that translates into the way I speak. I speak pretty damn fluent English if you ask me...

Also, what is your guys' opinion on Game Grumps? GOGOGOGOGO
