Maika’s thoughts about how to talk to Cathy? Again, the same thoughts I have when I see one of my idols in person. I mean, you have to have a plan, right? Otherwise, you might look like a fool. Unless you end up looking like a fool just standing silently like a statue rambling to yourself in your head. Which has happened to me as well.

MY TRIPLE THREAT DILEMMA
So my school choir, orchestra, and the theater group decided to join forces for a performance. I’m in all three! Help!
During my elementary school years, I was active in the performing arts. When I auditioned for the school play, I was informed that they would use pre-recorded background music. However, someone thought it would be better to have the orchestra play live music during the performance, and the choir instead of the performers of the play sing that some of the songs.
Now what was I supposed to do? I was a soprano in the choir; I was the violist (I played the viola, the violin’s cousin) in the orchestra; and I was an elephant in the school’s play “Jungle Book.” Drama dilemma!
