Every year, the College of Arts and Sciences, like any other universities, hold singing contests to determine whether who will represent the college in the LPU Idol competition, this is a competition where the best singers from all the colleges of the school will battle out for the title of LPU Idol.
At first, I was reluctant to join the contest. First, because I already have my OJT, and it would be hassle to come back to the school just to perform; second, because I don’t have that much confidence in me; third, because I don’t think I can compete with everyone in the competition.
I was the eldest among the contenders, and I personally have experienced performing inside the school. However, I still feel really shy when I have to perform in front of a large audience. I’m still nervous, I still (sometimes) cry. It pains me that no one believes that I’m nervous or shy, because of course of how I act towards them, but the truth is, it takes a matter of strength of the body, mind, and soul to feign the confidence you don’t really have.
Still, I managed to bring home the bacon, to my communication family.
It really feels nice to have performed well, I hope the performances in the future will be better or if not, at the same level as this.
