  1. Did you get my statement/???

    this was my statement.
    My music has always been my savior. When I am performing, my problems don’t exist. When I’m singing, I feel completed. I’ve always been fascinated by the entertainment industry and it’s all I’ve ever really wanted to do. When i was a kid, I would feel so constricted in the classroom. I just wanted to jump in the air like a firework and make everyone laugh with my talents. Needless to say, that led to some behavioral problems. My middle school didn’t need a disruptive ham distracting other students. I would get detentions and suspensions for being off the wall. Then, I found musical theatre and it was a great outlet for me. I began acting in all sorts of plays. It was there at Peacock Players that I found my first group of role models. Older kids, who were bigger hams than i was. They introduced me to incredible forces of good in my life like Radiohead and Jack Black. I became obsessed with Hail to the Theif and the turmoil I heard in Thom’s wails. I tried to emulate the energy and confidence that Jack showed. All i wanted to do was be a rock star. So, i learned the covers i wanted to learn. Then I started writing my own. I’ve been in a few bands over the years, nothing successful. I spent an incredible year after high school in NYC at a theatre school, but many factors staopped me from returning. I do my YouTube channel now and jam with friends, but I so desperately feel this burning need to perform and be admired. When I have the mic, and people are all hanging onto what i will say next and waves of applause and laughter wash over me.. that’s the only time I truely feel alive. Or maybe something even better than being alive.
