Five Days Later…
We’re all gathered backstage. I fumble with the large buttons at the collar of my blouse, flicking them between my thumb and forefinger in an effort to relieve some of the tension I feel.
I’m super fidgety and I hate how much it shows. I do a few breathing and posture exercises as I mentally prepare myself for tonight. For all of tonight.
The week has breezed by and it’s already Saturday. The day of the big performance is finally here.
There are only twenty minutes left before the show begins, and I’m both incredibly excited and nervous. I’m always really nervous and excited right before performing, but I feel even more tightly wound this time around.
