Tonight I had the opportunity to see one of my youth perform with their show choir. It was such a blast from the past for me. The costumes, the stage, the poofs, the eyelashes: they all evoked their own set of emotions.
It was wonderful getting to see so many groups perform, and there was a lot of talent, but I was partial to certain numbers. 😉. But overall it reminded me how much I miss it: competitions, chants, the friendships across school lines, way too much makeup, dance parties, warmup sessions, pre-performance prayers, etc.
I am definitely going to start going to competitions again. Hopefully I’ll be around for MIC this year. It won’t be the same without Wiehe involved, but I’ll survive. Some thugs just never leave us.
