Dear diary. Today I felt like a car crash had happened inside of me. We were performing to the school. There is nothing scarier than that. I was picturing all of the kids sitting on the ground watching me. There was no way I was going to disappoint them. When it started, the first people on didn't seem so nervous. It was probably because the bright lighting was in their faces and they couldn't see a thing. When it was my turn to go on and I was really nervous. I remembered the lines and the dance in my head. I didn't seem that scary. I said my first line and then walked off the stage. I was happy to get off but I still wanted to be on the stage. I did the dance and the rest of my lines. I was really proud of myself. I can't wait to get on tonight. It will be cool to perform to a paying audience.
