Nervousness Sets In

November 28, 2001

Off to the next city: Charleston! We drove for four hours before finally arriving in South Carolina. After a long morning on the bus, we moved into our new hotel, then scurried off to rehearsal at the Galliard Auditorium. The stage was really big, as was the audience. After rehearsing, we all went to a group dinner, which was really enjoyable!

Right now, I feel a bit nervous about performing tomorrow. This will be a really large crowd—1,700 people. Wow! This is the first time on the tour where I’ve felt that way. Hopefully I can just sleep the feeling off. Again, I feel so blessed to be on this trip with all of my friends, new and old. I love being in an environment where everyone is professional; it’s very refreshing. Dancing 24/7 (not really, but it feels like it) can make me tired, but it’s what I love to do!


Off to dance,
