Peak Performance Project Blog 4

i missed yesterday's blog, my computer's power cord broke, it's been inconvenient. I'm writing this before i get ready to perform tonight. i won't lie, it's a little terrifying to be scrutinized by judges- makes it hard to feel natural and loose, which is how you want to feel onstage.

Things are very intense- as the week has gone on, the feeling of camaraderie has strengthened, but the sense of competition has heightened somewhat. Everybody is beginning to realize the stakes.
