BEFORE THE NIGHT:
What if I forget my lines... What if I say a joke and no one laughs... What if I fall of the stage... What if all the things I thought off actually came true... It was so nerve racking. I was standing with my friend Lorenz and all he could talk about was how big the crowd was. Thats when it hit me, it was like an bunch of butterflies invading my stomach.
We were just talking and having fun, when all of a sudden Mr Burt came up to me and said with excitement "ITS TIME!!!"
"Good Luck" Lorenz said. I quickly went to Gabriel (another MC) and we walked up the stairs which led us into the stage. When I walked into the middle of the stage I found the light so bright I couldn't see anyone's face. It was like the sun shining on us. I looked at Mr Burt and he gave me the look. The look to start my prayer. I took a deep breath and began... "Let us pray... Ke Tau Lotu..."
AFTER THE NIGHT:
Fiafia night was the BOMB!!! I really enjoyed watching all the performances. My favourite performance though was the Niuean group. Why, I hear you ask? Well to me, I think that by looking at all their faces you could definitely tell that they were in the zone but you could also tell that they were all having fun. One thing that caught my attention while they were performing was that the stage looked as if it was going to break. Anyway, back to the night. It was definitely a night to remember.
As you can see you can definitely tell a huge difference in my story. The point of that being is that in the middle of it all, my confidence in being a MC as well as a performer changed a lot. I suddenly forgot about the things I could do to muck up and stated thinking about how being an MC was all about having fun.
