— I feel like death —
I’ve spent all day at the school where we’re doing Bye Bye Birdie, since we had a matinee and an evening performance, and I stayed through the middle to have lunch with my awesome friends.
It was closing night, which was sad, but the evening performance was AMAZING, like, REALLY AMAZING.
Afterward, everyone went to this restaurant/bar in town that had a live band, and now, usually I want to sit with the adults/young adults, because I get along way better with them than the kids my age, and I have a much better time, but my mom seems to be the only one that understands that sitting with the other kids my age makes me miserable/bored (because my good friends that I actually enjoy spending time with don’t usually come to our little after parties), so I always end up stuck with these kids that clearly don’t want me there/don’t share a sense of humor/entertainment with me.
But tonight, there were about five of us (my good friends and I) that sat outside near the adults at our own little table and we had a really really awesome time. Near the end, though, we went inside to jam by the band with some of the rest of the cast. They were playing some pretty awesome songs, Jessie’s girl, 867-5309 (Jenny), Johnny B Goode, and we were ROCKING and JAMMING and PARTYING IT UP. The band even recognized our theatre group and our show, and two or three of the quartet boys from Baby talk to me sang a song or two.
but I rocked too hard, and sang too hard and now I’m tired and I ache and my ears won’t un-pop and my throat’s sore and according to Tori I sound like I’m dieing.
Goes to show it’s a bad idea trying to out-sing amps
It doesn’t help that I jumped off the front of the stage today, and even though it wasn’t that high, and I didn’t twist anything, the impact jolted up my legs and I’m pretty sure I pulled something in my lower back and just ow.
DON’T. jump off the front of a stage
don’t do it
I’ve been told that for years, and I’ve done it maybe one other time
Don’t do it.
Also, try not to rock too hard.
