This is absolutely true. I won a dance-til-you-drop competition last month, beating the President of the Dance Club in a dance-off after 4 hours of dancing. I was like, "How did that just happen. It defies reality." And that's just what dance is.

Speaking of Michael Jackson, I've always been practicing his dance moves when I was like 11 so I've been performing a lot until I hit 17, that's when I stopped doing different kinds of dances and focused on martial arts

    A bit random, but okay. xD
    I can't dance at all whatsoever. I prefer playing the instruments instead, lol.

      Apparently I'm extremely good at the piano for only having played two or three months. I also am good at playing clarinet, but I've been doing that for longer.

      I can't play anything except Pokemon. Never really bothered to try to learn, though.

        I play guitar practically every second of the day that my hands are free! I really want to learn the piano though. After hearing 'Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles' and the beautiful piano in that song... just ahh. SWOONING BRB. I've tried learning before and got pretty far but then came to uni and had no chance to practice. D:

          I used to play the violin a few years back but i've completely forgotten it now.I had planned to go learn how to play the guitar but i just didn't for some reason.Now i just play air guitar or air drums if that counts.Also, singing along with songs has made me sort of good at singing.

          Drummer in the house, although I haven't done it in a while due to the campus apartment complexes I've been living in not allowing drum kits unless you're a music major.

          I have piano fingers and would love to learn it, but pianos are expensive. I play a bit of guitar though...used to play trumpet but not anymore. Just lost interest, you know?

          I am quite proficient in playing the piano as I have learnt it since I was about 4. xD That's not all, though! I can also play the violin, the guitar and drums, but I'm not very good at them.

          I used to take violin lessons up to Grade 4, but I stopped. Don't remember the reason why. Now my skills have turned all rusty ;_; I still know how to play it, but not as well as I used to.

          As for guitar, I kinda self-learnt. One day, a guy brought a guitar to class during high school. He played a few chords to a song, and I asked if I could try. It all started from there. xD

          My previous school made instrument classes compulsory, and drum classes was one of the choices. I took drums. Loved it! xD

          Off-topic but...

          The VDay thread really has me thinking. It's amazing the kind of feedback we're getting from it that's really valuable (at least imo) in making future event decisions, and ideas we may not come up with ourselves especially since people plan the same holidays over and over again so ideas start sounding stale...

          I just wonder if it would be a good idea to have some kind of public "event submission" kind of thing. You can PM a staff member to talk about it now but that takes a lot of initiative and people may not be aware that's an option and I really like how we can see from that thread people showing interest in an event, since a lot of times events are based on if we think people will be interested and we have to make educated guesses.

          Idk just thinking out loud here. I wish there was a way to make members feel that submitting events and talking about their opinions on events is really welcome.

          Yea, lots of people have the mindset of 'I'm not a mod, so my opinion won't really count' kind of thing. It's a shame really

            Maybe something like a suggestion thread since some people might find it intimidating to PM a Mod.

            I was never intimated by mods at first since I didn't know what they actually were lmao. But once I'd worked it out I was already speaking to Megan, Blade, etc, so they didn't seem scary! (Other than Blade, she's terrifying.)

              I was kinda intimidated by mods at first, but after a little while I started to feel more comfortable around PC in general, and by then the mods weren't so intimidating. :)

              Aww how sweet.



              I just like the public idea too because we can see how many members like an idea, or if members aren't really into it. When things are planned and decided on privately you just have to...guess. >_o

                I think that'd be really nice! Maybe every so often PC can draw inspiration for contests from members (like how we have competitions like in GE or the Art section) too! It'll take some stress of the mods maybe if there are some well known and trustworthy members who'd like to host the events too.

                  On the topic of music, I'm so naturally unmusical that I can't sing and I can't dance. These guilty feet have got no rhythm.
